Power corruption thread?
You can have any one power you desire.
However, your first reply is the weakness of your power.
I'll start with something simple: the ability to move backwards and forwards through time without screwing up the space-time continuum at my leisure
love the positive thinking
keep it up man
That's... horrible. How will I even know im alive?
I'll take it
I'll take this one too. I could always an hero, just I won't die from age or disease
The ability to watch Cheaters whenever I see a television
only works on people if you look them in the eye
Joke's on you, I don't have a girlfriend!
The ability to make any desire come true, whether for myself or someone of my choosing.
That's exactly what I would do. I don't want anyone I know personally to have to live forever.
That's not disadvantageous either. It would mean that they would assume a new form millions of years later.
If these blisters heal over a reasonable amount of time, then I'd still be fine with it.
it's from words of radiance by brandon sanderson
"Two blind men waited at the end of an era, contemplating beauty. They sat atop the world's highest cliff, overlooking the land and seeing nothing."
'Can beauty be taken from a man?' the first asked the second.
'It was taken from me,' the second replied. 'For I cannot remember it.' This man was blinded in a childhood accident. 'I pray to the God Beyond each night to restore my sight, so that I may find beauty again.'
'is beauty something one must see, then?' the first asked
'of course. that is its nature. how can you appreciate a work of art without seeing it?'
'i can hear a work of music,' the first said
'very well, you can hear some kinds of beauty but you cannot know full beauty without sight, you can know only a small portion of beauty.'
'a sculpture' the first said. 'can i not feel it's curves and slopes, the touch of the chisel that transformed common rock into uncommon wonder?'
'i suppose,' said the second, 'that you can know the beauty of a sculpture.'
'and what of the beauty of food? is it not a work of art when a chef crafts a masterpiece to delight the tastes?'
'i suppose,' said the second, 'that you can know the beauty of a chef's art'
'and what of the beauty of a woman,' the first said 'can i not know her beauty in the softness of her caress, the kindness of her voice, the keenness of her mind as she reads philosophy to me? Can i not know this beauty? Can i not know most kinds of beauty, even without my eyes?'
' very well,' said the second. 'but what if your ears were removed, your hearing taken away? your tongue taken out, your mouth forced shut, your sense of smell destroyed? what if your skin were burned so that you could no longer feel? What if all that remained to you was pain? You could not know beauty then. It CAN be taken from a man.'
'Then beauty, to that person, would be the times when the pain lessens...'
You suck at it, and you wind up mind tricking yourself without knowing it.
"You want to take off all your clothes and make love to me" results in your arrest for public indecency.
And fuck you they will, as you can now only orgasm by getting fucked in the ass
well that just kindof makes it pointless, or does extremely little to affect my power, not sure which you mean, but you suck at this
not a fan of shekel crazies or their counterparts, would take
haha would take, make for some great stories..
"so i accidently mugged myself asking this girl out.."
>implying OP don't get fucked in the asshole already
>can't become something you have been before
I'd be okay with this, mostly because I could just shapeshift into something that looks convincingly human but isn't. With an exterior of pure chitin! ... So you know, like a juggalo or black people.
but you also accdentally make lethal traps out of things, and then dont remember doing it.
in creating an entire universe you destroy this one completely, and since oyu live in this one you die right away.
Being able to morph myself to look like anyone or any animal I want
So basically I can purify the world and become the hero everyone has always wanted, by becoming the one true super giga-nigga.
I see no downside, I just stopped all of crime, and all I have to do is get shot by the police to purify myself.
I create a device which constantly drips microscopic amounts of bleach into my stomach, not enough to cause any toxic effects, but enough to activate my power constantly, because technically still drinking bleach.
