yeah, iit 2ound2 liike a good tactiic except for that ju2t never work2.
p2iioniic2 are touchy wiith what make2 them work, you have two be partiicular.
giive your2elf a break tiill your head 2top2 poundiing but once you’re ready agaiin don’t make your2elf angry at the tree2.
you aren’t pii22ed at them, you ju2t want two miicheal bay the 2hiit out of them.
though anger help2 iit’2 not the driiviing force behiind iit.
==> You’re quivering slightly, but the sparking stops and you listen to him, trying to wait for the pounding in your head to stop.
==> you don’t want to annoy him, so you just nod slightly
iill try better
no and that’2 maiinly why iit’2 iimportant two learn about them.
not 2o you can fiire them off 2o much a2 2o you don’t fiire one off on acciident.
bla2t2, contrary two telekiine2ii2, ii2 le22 about control and more about relea2e.
iit’2 really liittle more than lookiing at 2omethiing whiile your p2iioniic2 are charged and wantiing the thiing you’re lookiing at de2troyed.
whiich can be pretty ea2y two uniintentiionally do iif you’re pii22ed off and not watchiing your2elf.
==> You look over your shoulder at a small cluster of trees and point your thumb at them.
tho2e tree2. vaporiize them.
charge your p2iioniic2, keep em iin your 2iight2 and want them gone from everythiing for the re2t of forever.
==> You follow where he was pointing and make sure you’re facing the trees
==> This seems really difficult he’s gonna get mad you can’t do it and he’ll totally stop helping you!!!
==> Oh that’s just upsetting you, stop that! Wait, no, it might actually help! You glare at the trees, trying to keep them in your sight, your eyes spark and spark, the sparking is pretty violent and now your head is throbbing but you can’t seen to get an optic blast out!
good, not exact but precii2iion come2 later.
the maiin part of that wa2 puttiing 2omethiing down wiithout droppiing iit or 2lammiing iit iintwo the diirt.
and now that you know how two do that you can practiice on your own tiime.
we’ll 2kiip on maniipulatiion for now, that’2 a liittle out of reach for now 2o we’ll go two a biit of an easiier pha2e: focu2ed energy dii2per2al.
aka eye bla2t2 and the liike.
and how NOT two acciidentally fry the thiing2 you liike at 2ome poiint.
maniipulation 2ure 2ound2 diiffiicult, yeah..
ii havvent really done any eye bla2t2 that ii can remember, are they diiffiicult two do??
excellent, that’2 a good 2tart.
now come2 2omethiing a liittle biit harder.
you’re goiing two 2et iit down agaiin, riight where iit wa2, niice and gentle.
thiink 2LOW and keep the red 2pot iin your miind.
==> You’re feeling more confident and you’re smiling as you try to set it down so carefully. So.. so.. careful.
==> It successfully gets set down, but it is off by maybe a half of an inch
relax, ii expected thii2.
==> You flick a finger at the rocks and the go back to how they were.
don’t concentrate on the rock part of iit, concentrate on the red 2pot.
forget the rock2 are even there, you don’t need tho2e.
you want the red 2pot, ju2t focu2 on that.
==> You try to focus yourself better, taking a deep breath, then letting it out. Alright, just that red spot. Your eyes and hands glow a little more than last time, and the rock with the red spot lifts into the air
that one wworked!!
2iince you’ve already leviitated a biit, we’ll 2tart wiith that.
telekiine2ii2 ii2 one of the ea2iier thiing2 two accomplii2h.
and 2iince you’ve got ba2iic control we’ll go 2traiight two focu2.
==> A light clattering is heard as about a dozen small rocks float up from the ground. You look over them a bit before settling on one that was unique enough to stand out from the rest with a small streak of red on one side. You clear an area of ground to flatness and settle the rocks back down in a loosely clustered formation, about an inch and a half between every rock. You make sure the one rock’s red spot faces upward, nice and clearly visible.
alriight, thii2 te2t ii2 2iimple and you’ve probably already gue22ed iit by now.
what you’re goiing two do ii2 concentrate and focu2 and liift ONLY the rock wiith the red on iit.
wiithout affectiing any of the other2.
whenever you’re ready.
==> You turn and watch the rocks settle in to place, and you nibble your lip slightly
alriight ii can do iit
==> You’re trying to focus, your forehead sparks red and blue a little between your horns and you raise a hand slightly, and a few of the rocks float into the air. Your shoulders slump slightly
==> You try and set them down where they were, but they sort of just fall. god dammit you just wanted the red one
==> You give a brief nod of acknowledgement.
alriight, 2o the barebone2 ba2iic 2hiit.
2o that 2tart2 u2 off at 2quare one then.
alriight, p2iioniic2 are an extremely ver2atiile twool, and deadly weapon.
they’re al2o a ma22iive double edged 2word where iif you don’t watch what you’re fuckiing doiing you could ea2iily acciidentally de2troy 2omethiing you’d really rather not.
what p2iioniic control boiil2 down two ii2 two word2: focu2 and dii2ciipliine.
you can run on cruii2e control a2 long a2 you have tho2e down.
iit’2 the diifference between liiftiing a plate and liiftiing the kiitchen iit’2 iin.
you wiith me 2o far?
pretty much yeah.
==> He’s talking a lot, and you do your best to take it all in, you think you got it all so you nod a little excitedly
yeah iim wwiith you
ii acciidentally break 2hiit a lot….
==> wow you’re feeling intimidated again, just listen to him and try not to fuck up
==> You wait for a grand total of 5 minutes before you see the flash that denoted an appearification. Just as planned then. You settle yourself back on your feet and set your face as he approaches.
alriight, not wa2tiing my tiime here 2o let’2 get 2traiight two iit.
what do you know about p2iioniic control 2o far and what have you been able two accomplii2h wiith what you do know?
==> You smile wide as you approach him. All you brought with you was your cellphone, just in case someone needs you. No one ever needs you though, but it makes you feel better. You tilt your head slightly as you think.
ii can liift 2tuff an float but iim not reel good at any a iit.. ii2 that okay
