Re: The Perils of Valora 3: "The Reverse Pete Best"

Harper Patáky had long since stopped thinking of herself as her husband's wife. Milo made few demands of her, and she made few of him, and the two of them rarely had all that much to do with each other's lives. But there were connections between them, even now, that Harper found difficult to put ent...

Re: What kind of powers are best for a peril-prone heroine?

Not to be too much of a brown-noser here, damselbinder, but I thought that your character Spectra's power to use light as a very formidable weapon was brilliant (pun intended) but the fact that she took that light through her eyes and could be thwarted with a blindfold was even better!

Re: What kind of powers are best for a peril-prone heroine?

More than power(s) the key is arrogance. Matching the right villain is also important but the secret sauce lies in the writer's ability to craft a memorable humbling. Wen it comes to deafeating those who supposedly can’t be beat, the fall is what I’m after. I'm not entirely sure I agree. Having a h...

What kind of powers are best for a peril-prone heroine?

Pretty much what it says on the tin. What kind of power or power-set makes for either the most enticing, or most narratively interesting superheroine in our little micro-genre?
