I have a personal vendetta against someone wildly more successful than me so I’m trying to make them lazy.
You don’t know how to relax so I’m literally filling you with laziness but you just won’t stop.
I work at an animal shelter and I sometimes make the animals fit what people are looking for by removing or adding laziness. You haven’t lived until you saw a cat with 0% laziness.
Aciukinesis - Control Sharpness
Did you know that most man made spheres are still more jagged than the earth itself?
You haven’t experienced softness until you felt a perfectly smooth ball. There’s also not a lot of traction so please cup it in your hands.
I’m one of the only chefs here that doesn’t have some sort of hot or cold ability. But me being very clumsy, the ability to make all my knives dull saves my fingers a lot.
I keep making all the knives in the kitchen blunt so I can watch my parent-in-law get frustrated and lose their dominance over me.
Aerokinesis - Control Air
I can control the air but that doesn’t do a lot so I just got a few wind turbines for my property, so I get power for free. It’s a small win, but I like it.
Sometimes I go to the beach and set up a kite rental booth while making it windy. It doesn’t make much but it helps with rent.
No one thinks that controlling air is that cool of a super power until I take it out of their lungs.
Aestatekinesis - Control Summer
I hate sweating so I made this summer really mild but it’s affecting my town’s farming economy.
I forgot that Alaska’s still supposed to be pretty cold in the summer and I may have made the ice caps melt a little more.
Aggressiokinesis - Control Anger
I work in tandem with a crisis clinic and so far, there isn’t a patient I can’t calm down.
My anti-aggression dog classes are the best in the business. I even stop by pet shelters.
I just love watching these people tear each other limb from limb with blind rage. I’m gonna be sad to see you go though.
Aidoskinesis - Control Humidity
One of the only things good about my powers is that I can make my boss’ office so humid they have horrible hair and sweat stains for their meeting with corporate.
My greenhouse is always at the perfect humidity even in the dead of winter.
I’m gulty of making someone so humid they’ve taken off their shirt before. It’s a blessing.
Alcokinesis - Control Alcohol
You always get too out of hand with your drinking so I just take the alcohol content out of your drinks.
My coworker bugs the hell out of me and they’re going in for a company-wide drug test today. I made their breakfast have a healthy amount of alcohol.
It’s very fun to see someone pantamime being drunk when they think they are when in actuality I’ve taken all the alcohol out of their drink.
Amokinesis - Control Love and Desire
Shit are you actually in love with me or did I manipulate you into liking me?
As a joke I was going to make my classmate fall in love with whoever came in next but you did and now I’m very jealous.
I make people forget about me when we break up so it’s easy on them but I can’t get rid of my own love for them, even when there’s no chance of getting back together ever now.
Anthracokinesis - Control Coal
I like being alone so I move to Centralia and just turn off the surrounding coals when I’m walking over them. It’s very quiet but very smoky. I need to leave town to buy a gas mask.
I bought a bit of land and made a little mine before buying a truckload of coal and just stiking it in the walls. Then, I compressed it all into diamonds.
So my parents gave me a little tough love as a child and gave me a piece of coal one christmas. I’ll admit, I was a naughty child. But that piece of coal made me learn of my powers. It’s the only piece I’ll never manipulate anymore.
Antikinesis - Control Antimatter
No you can’t come to my antimatter dimension. It’s very private.
I think we had a good run, I’m just gonna get a black hole in here real quick.
I always wanted to visit Chernobl, good thing I can just sort of turn off the gamma radation and go for a walk.
Argentokinesis - Control Silver
Whoops I’m in werewolf country better make all my clothes and stuff have silver mesh.
“Yes this is genuine gold” I say to someone when I took the silver content out of a ring.
So I don’t have the best impulse control. I made my rude neighbor’s prized dog into a silver statue and now it’s like… eighty sets of flatwear.
Arthrokinesis - Control Joints
I may be a very inactive person, but damned if my joints ever pop. I’m doing sprints anytime I feel like it.
I got too excited testing how much I could let my joints move and may have dislocated by shoulder.
Yes, I tried to suck my own dick. Yes, I should have realized that there is actually bone stopping me from bending my spine like that. Don’t laugh at me.
Asterokinesis - Control Cosmic Energy
I’ve ascended to be the god of the universe and all I want to do is to stop being in charge and just have some time off for once.
I saw how much earth was desperate to meet other beings so I made some closer planets support life.
I’m not just some giant being in space. I’m a regular person. I buy groceries, collect rocks, and I’m desperate for people to never know I made them.
Astrakinesis - Control Astral Energy
I am nearly constantly disassociating. The good news is that I have like thirty dream selves I can be while the others go on autopilot.
I can see spirits so I just deal with ghosts for a living. Most of the time they’re just confused.
I can work as a medium for ghosts to talk through but you roleplaying with your dead datemate is the last straw.
Astronkinesis - Control Remnants of Cosmic Substances
I realized that in my lifetime I would never see a mission to a star so I made some much closer to us.
I don’t feel like this world’s really going anywhere. I’m just gonna supernova the sun next weekend.
My tarot card readings are always perfect and I sincerely want you to leave the country.
Atmokinesis - Control Weather
I am the best weather forecaster the world has ever seen. I work for a small town in rural country though. I think I have five hundred viewers on a daily basis?
I always make sure my neighbor’s/parent’s/friend’s/etc farm gets the best weather.
My entrences are always punctuated with lightening and I love it.
Atomkinesis - Control Atoms
It’s like 3-D printing, only much better. Check out this awesome watch I made.
I hope you like nuclear wastelands, because that’s what you’re getting.
Surprise, your house is full of radon gas!it’ll stay that way until you do what I say.
Audiokinesis - Control Sound
Nothing quite like a day of absolute silence when you have an audio processing disorder.
Movies are very fun to watch when I can make one character silent and just ad lib the dialogue.
The fact that I can chat style silence someone is the best.
Aurokinesis - Control Aura
I can see how people act before ever talking to them, that’s why you’re the only one in the room I’m going to talk to.
Where I live, auras are very important. So I can easily hide among them as someone without giving an inkling of malice.
I personally hate you so now you get too radiate bad energy until you apologize.
Aurokinesis - Control Gold
I’m allergic to what they use in fake gold but I have no money for good jewelry so I just make it gold after I buy it for cheap.
It’s not quite the Midas touch, but I’ve pulled that prank before.
I make golden jewelry and sculptures by making them out of clay/wood/etc and turning them into gold for huge profits.
Autumnuskinesis - Control Autumn
My hometown capitalizes on my love of pumpkins and sweater weather by becoming a destination for those looking to beat the heat but don’t want to own a down jacket.
I can make things rot. So I rotted my neighbor’s garden a week before harvest.
I make autumn immediately follow winter so now the world’s harvesting systems are fucked because I get pollen allergies.
Avarikinesis - Control Greed
I’m trying to make the world fair by taking all the greed out of high-ranking officials but sometimes that was their only driving force and they have no actual job experience.
I made someone comically greedy because being a superhero in a town in which no banks need protecting is boring.
I want so desperately to not have to take greed out of anymore people. It’s getting so tiring. I need to go on a vacation.
Avikinesis - Control Avains
Having hawks fly to my aide when my boss was giving me shit in the parking lot was definitely a sweet move.
I may live in this cottage alone, but these birds are more than enough company. One of them just told me about someone who ate shit on pavement last week in a city ten miles away. It’s awesome.
“Bats fly, right? Why can’t I control bats?” “Please just let me do my work.” ‘What about bugs?” “Please go home.” “Do flying fish count?”
The way people write jealousy. People always write it like “you’re my best friend that I have a crush on and you are not allowed to interact with any other male let alone be friends with them but I can do whatever I want with girls, even if you say that you don’t like it or that it makes you feel uncomfortable. An when you get understandably upset and confront me about it i’m going to act like this is all your fault because you dared to have another male friend. You’re now going to let me claim you like you’re some kind of object because even though you’re telling me no, I know exactly what you WANT and NEED.” If any guy acts like that with you they need to get their crap straight and you should probably consider not being around them anymore. That is not love, nor is that ‘super hot’. That’s abusive and controlling behavior. Your boyfriend or friend or girlfriend should not get upset for you interacting and befriending other people. And that classic line in a fic “I’m going to have to remind you who you belong to.” The line itself isn’t bad. But the fact that it’s being used just because you talked to another guy is not okay. And then these fics automatically jump to the rough and unsafe sex complete with spanking and the use of derogatory words with the lack of any safe word being discussed. Shouldn’t you make sure thats okay???? Shouldn’t you give your partner a way out in case it gets too much??? Whether you like it or not, young people do read these fics, and by writing it like that over and over and over again you’re normalizing it and making it seem like its okay and to be expected. NO ONE SHOULD TREAT YOU LIKE THAT! I understand that it might be hot or whatever to some people, so in that case, make him (or her) get angry over some ACTUAL flirty behavior. Make your reader insert character ACTUALLY flirt with another guy, just to get a rise out of your fave or the idol being written about. WRITE SCENES OF A SAFEWORD BEING EXCHANGED AND ACTUAL AFTERCARE AND COMFORT AFTER ROUGH SEX. Come on people, doesn’t that sound way hotter? JUST WRITE RESPONSIBLY UGH
The first time he saw the jersey he didn’t think much of it. To him, it was just an article of clothing that was two sizes too big and smelled heavily of off brand laundry detergent from the last person who wore it. When he had initially decided to tryout for the lacrosse team he didn’t expect to be spending as much time on the bench as he did. Surely he’d be allowed to play a couple of times, right?
His freshman year was spent keeping the cold metal bench warm. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop his friends from coming out and supporting him. Even when his dad couldn’t show up he knew he could count on Y/N to.
I worked at (store that sells donuts that you may or may not dunk) that was in a somewhat far off location from the rest of the city in a relatively new shopping center. I was there when the store opened, and we never really got much traffic, but there was two large car clubs that came out twice a week to meet, and chat, and generally bring our store a lot of traffic. We were told that the clubs pretty much keeps the store afloat.
I worked there for a long while, and my manager was awesome. She did a great job of keeping everything stocked, gave out hours to people who actually worked their ass off instead of playing favorites, and she was never unfair about warnings or suspensions.
One day, she got seriously ill and had to quit. I never knew the details, but it was serious enough for her to quit her job. Then comes Swagger McA**hole, our new manager. Now, Swagger
had all the charm and wit of a rabid chihuahua. He was a generally angry man, and thought himself to be above everyone else in the store. He popped the collars of his button up shirt like he was going to bring that trend back from the dead. Needless to say, Swagger
wasn’t well liked.
He fired and replaced people left and right for usually petty or outright wrong reasons, and I was the last one standing, because for some reason, I was always asked to make the regular’s coffee, because I would remember their names, what they wanted, and how they liked it, and I usually had it in the process of being made as soon as I saw them walking up to the door. The car clubs knew me by name.
Enter Hannah Handjob. She started hanging around the store. A lot. Swagger
and Hannah Handjob would often hang out in the Manager’s office, sometimes with the door closed. Like we didn’t know what the fuck they were doing. A short while later, I find myself fired for some bullshit reason. I think what was written on my exit paperwork (which I refused to sign) was “wasting inventory”, whatever the fuck that meant.
Sorry for the long backstory. Here comes the revenge part. Remember those car clubs I talked about? I found their website and message boards, and told them my story. They told me how incredibly shitty they thought it all was, and always thought Swagger
was a poor replacement for our old manager. Both the clubs agreed to find a different venue for their morning to late afternoon meetups.
That was the death knell for that location. Three months later, I go back to turn in my uniforms, because I’m sick of looking at them in my closet, and they’re all closed up. I don’t know for sure that I had anything to do with their closing, but I’m at least 80% sure the car clubs were keeping them afloat.
I saw she could / watch her own house burn / without moving a muscle, I saw she could / light the pyre. / I could see her in a temple, tying someone up / or being tied up, or being made nothing / or making someone nothing. / I saw she was full of cruelty / and full of kindness, brimming with it – / I had known but not known this, that she was human, / she had it all inside her, all of it. / She saw me seeing that, she liked that I saw it.

here is the highly requested second part!! i wrote this in a caffeinated daze at like 3am so i hope it isn’t too terrible hahaha. also it looks like this is definitely gonna be at least 3 parts (maybe more if you guys want that?) so yeah!
fyi some parts of this are slightly inspired by @parkersenses‘s great fic which u can read here!
An old 90’s rap song blasted over the speakers as Peter felt his stomach drop. His eye contact with you was fleeting, and suddenly you were gone, having disappeared with Flash and his entourage upstairs. The people around him were all dancing to the rhythm of the music, but the second Peter saw you, everything froze. He made jokes about you not being good enough for Flash all the time, but he never thought he would ever actually see the two of you together. It sparked a profound rush of adrenaline in him, and he took a big breath of air and pushed through the crowd to follow you.
lately we’ve been able to predict the winner of rupaul’s drag race, the dark-horse, etc… i dare to say that since bianca del rio there’s a clear winner, the dark-horse and the supposed competition for the winner. but that is part of life, i get it. whatever what bothers me is that sometimes the judges panel seem to have a very narrow-minded concept of what’s drag and whenever someone defies that, that person doesn’t get the recognition that it deserves. in recent seasons we saw that happening to max(michelle’s being so annoyed with the grey wig made no sense, we don’t see her challenging queens that fit her concept of drag but that very rarely serve wildly different looks, concept i.e. roxxxy andrews who’s a fantastic drag queen and we can say fits the stereotypical mold), milk and we can say that this happened to thorgy thor in some level and now with sasha velour.
it’s quite obvious rupaul’s favorite this season is shea. shea is a fierce queen and she has been slaying the competition except sasha, maybe. sasha since the first episode has been deemed too smart and now too chic to drag. what’s ridiculous and in this week’s episode joan smalls even said she doesn’t want to see in a drag show what she sees in a runway in paris. it’s okay that drag queens have been serving as inspiration for several different designers but the moment drag queens start to actually do fashion is a problem? it bothers me that the panel on a drag queen show reinforces that drag cannot be too smart or too chic. drag has to be always over the top and only serve as concept for fashion bot not exactly do fashion? maybe i’m reading too much into it, but what joan said and also rupaul bothered me because it reflects bad on the artistry rupaul do it so well. i’m not saying sasha deserved to win this week (well i am, but that’s not the point)
i’m just reflecting on what’s been said to/about sasha this season. labelig her as too fashion/chic(polished??) and too smart. putting drag in a box of only not too smart satire and over the top. as if there’s no where to go from that. but queens like sasha and milk are actually the ones actively thinking about the gender norms, about the artistic ways of drag (i want to highlight the usage of actively because by doing drag i believe they all are, in a way, thinking those things but you can see with queens like milk and sasha those issues are actually deeply thought and rooted in their drag) anyway, this happened season after season and it’s just sad to see how reluntanct people always are to something that is a bit different from what they think or agree on.
