I Will Arrange Bells On Spectrums

Plain old discussion of Alicorn stories.

It's mentioned in thread that the stones like being a little redundant. Loki has zero redundancy with those stones, and would tend not to seek it out except maybe pure defense. Boots's subtle arts, Cam's fucking around with resurrection of Space Elves, T'Mir's psi, and Golden's shareable flexible opacity give them an in. That said, Cam and Golden are both much better suited to Power than to their creepy rock assignments.

Ohh, that makes sense. I interpreted "the stones like being a little redundant" as meaning that some things stones can do overlap and so I was confused.
The WAFFLES will submit to this indignity.

That’s how I interpreted it at first, but the example with Boots clarifies it for me.

Do you want to put Ambella on any of these? Stability of romantic relationships? Nervousness?

No-assistive-technology/magic footrace, longer than a (human) sprint but short enough that for most humans it would be a running race instead of an endurance one. Exceptions to the no-assistive-technology for things that could not plausibly be removed, but not for magic they acquire later in life or post-pealing (eg, Ambella can keep the chip in her brain, Angela and Promise but not Cam keep their wings even though they aren’t allowed to fly, and Stella will probably be around the middle of the pack).

So, to clarify: Aegis gets to keep her exo, right?

I was originally thinking no, since she takes that off to shower and it’s easy to remove, but it’s more interesting if she keeps it and Chi keeps her bending because otherwise they’d be down in the bottom, under “literally crawled to the finish line”.

For the same reason, I’d suggest that Phix has her medallion removed so is stuck as a sphinx. I have no opinions on Loki’s grace.

Ambela is high stability low nervousness but I don't want to go dig up the lists to place her exactly.

Footrace:

Ambela, Linya
exo!Aegis
spell!Loki
bending!Chi
quadrupeds
T'Mir
Promise, Angela
[unusually tall Bells with no other advantages, in order of height]
[middle of the pack, except not really the middle because they're all pretty samey here]

Where does Pelape fit on fear-of-death, happiness, willingness to be considered a supervillain by native civilization?

I don't wanna go stare at all those lists but she's below middle of the pack on fear of death and very low on happiness and high on willingness to supervillain.

Very low on happiness because she’s gray, or because she doesn’t have kids, or what?
