Headcanon accepted; the standard Glowfic Miles is Force sensitive. Probably the canon one too, but I don’t know much about canon. He simply should not be able to do everything he does always; his luck coefficient is higher than usual for glowfic. Obviously usual luck behaves weirdly in any work of fiction, but it seems particularly blatant around Miles. Here is an in-multiverse explanation which could apply even to the version which never encounter Star Wars.

Seems right to me.

Miles says that while you might reasonably argue he's got something not strictly mundane going on, "Force sensitive even with no Star Wars in sight" is not it.

And [a Bell template fusion] would be creepy but that obviously has no bearing on whether it can happen...


Is that actually true? Alicorn, if you were to write a fused template, would you potentially avoid Bells because they wouldn’t handle it well?

Nah, this isn't a constraint on me, it'd just weird out the Bells.

I thought it probably wasn’t, but I wasn’t sure. You seem to care what your template meta-instances would want less than some of the other authors, and I wasn’t even sure if the Bell template as a whole would care that much. Would they yell at you about it even as much as they complained about not getting teleports in Threefold?

I don't care very much about what they want, but I do care about what is fitting. The meta-instance doesn't object, though, they would just find a template fusion *interpersonally* off-putting.

This reminds me of a line from Star Trek: The Next Generation; in episode Remember Me, Dr. Crusher says, “If there's nothing wrong with me, maybe there's something wrong with the universe!”

Depending on what you mean by “something wrong with the world”, this is either true far more often than people tend to think, or far less often, and either way it’s important to recognize correctly.
