Aight for for a seasonal magical girl idea I got the powers down pat:

  • spring: powers over plants, minor rain powers
  • summer: heat and sand
  • autumn/fall: leaves and wind
  • winter: ice and snow

the solstice magical powers are more support-oriented since her whole gimmick is maxxing out the other girls' powers (as well as being the key in unlocking their solstice modes). Though i'm also looking for thematic offensive powers suitable for such a character.

Equinox, I'm stumped on. So far her purpose is to do the whole power combination thing I guess? but I don't think it feels right. I'm still trying to workshop this as we speak.

What would propably physically happen to a human who runs at a top speed of 480 miles per hour (22 times faster than the fastest human sprinter)?

480mph would make breathing difficult and collisions inevitable. And joints would probably overheat. Just off the top of my head. One also wonders how quick the acceleration to such speeds is.

The story is obviously not super realistic because if it was i wouldn't be giving characters superspeed, but could it be vaguely possible to somehow help the breathing problem with 1940s-style technology? Building some sort of a breathing apparatus?note 

Also, what does Doppler Effect do at that speed?

Here is my magic system in my original novel: Fictionverse Project: Original Universe what do you think

Conceptual Power

Concept power is the superpower that all human beings are born with based on the concept of everything either natural, man-made, or supernatural by strength and variety in the use of power. Will depend on the specificity of the meaning of the concept that the concept has a specific meaning, how much will be more diverse in the use of less power and a lot of strength, but if the concept The more diverse meaning, the more it means to use a lot of power and a little strength, and one can have from 1-4 concepts in the rail. and can have duplicates

The types of concept power are as follows.

1. Natural Concept: Concepts that come from nature such as Weather, Lifeform, Element

2. Manmade Concept: Concepts that come from humans such as Technology, Encyclopedia, Weapon

3. Supernatural Concept:Concept that has supernatural origin: Devil, Ghost, Transformation

4. Combo Concept: A concept that has two concepts that are related in one such as Nature-Civilization, Dream-Nightmare, Hope-Despair

5. Absolute Concept: A special type of concept that is at the highest level of all concepts that few people will have, where you become the owner of the concept's domain. It differs from a normal user who is only a resident of the domain.

6. Anti-Concept: A special type of concept that is responsible for opposing all concept powers and few people have it.

Concept powers are OP. Nature powers could control all weather, animals like bugs, or wildlife. Concept over dreams and nightmares could be full-on reality wrapping. Same with Technology, for obvious reason.

My main character's, Ultimate, powers from my web novel is the Spider-Man package. Minus the Danger Precog and Super Agility. With the added bonus of Deadpool-level regeneration. And super immunity. I already used the super immunity for a supervillain plot. And I'm not planning on having Ultimate use his power creatively yet. But his Motherly A.I. helps him by offering him suggestions that he ignores, that what I wanted suggestions for.

I already have some ideas. (using shockwaves to move around in the air, using shockwaves for projectile moves, super spinning to create large tornados.) But maybe you guys could help me.

What can gravity powers be used for, assuming they're not powerful enough to totally break reality?

[up]Depends on the scope of the power? The Weirkey Chronicles has a character who has such powers and uses them fairly creatively.

Basic usage might be dropping enemies into the sky, or weighting them down with multiples of gravity. More peaceful uses might be energy generation (if you can reverse gravity, then release it, you've got essentially infinite power generation). More complicated uses might be repelling projectiles, creating black holes, or putting things into orbit.

You can also crush people from the inside by increasing their internal gravity, accelerate or slow down things as much as you want, and bend light, which can allow to create mirages or enhance images (the gravitational lens effect). At higher levels, you can also change the courses of planets and bend space, which can allow to slow down/speed up time and possibly create wormholes.

How does this sound as a superpower for Sei Shonagon? Currently conceptilzaing a story about female writers that are in this ethereal world and each has a special ability that's based on their most well known book (think Bungo Stray Dogs but with an all-female cast).

Here's her ability in question:

The Pillow Book - A mainly passive ability that instantly writes down thoughts and what people said in paper without the need for a writing utensil. The thoughts can come from Sei herself or someone else, meaning she's basically a mind reader. Sei can also control which specific thoughts/dialogue can be written down.

Tis a The Great Gatsby AU where Daisy Buchanan is a lil kiddo and thus Gatsby's love for her is paternal instead.
