A Tale of Heroes (WIP) - 218k words. Updated 12/17/2023 with Chapter 6: Part One!

Err, just to be clear, Ignis is a doomed RO. She’ll end up with Seeker by the time Book 1 ends.

Iris has some connection to Seeker, but they’re not romantically involved- she thinks he’s a washed up has-been.

In light of recent “does Mars want to wear dresses?” discussion, I’d like to bring up an old Tumblr response from November 2021:

(Among several other examples of TR cross-dressing)

I now choose to believe Mars watched the Pokemon anime as a child and went “oooh pretty” every time this happened.

Yeah, but how does that work out in the poly with him and nova? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: My mc strongly prefers male coded clothes himself though.

Someone’s gotta be Meowth I suppose :stuck_out_tongue: Could always put on a big red wig and be a guy dressing as a girl dressing as a guy, if you don’t mind the gender paradox.

Giovanni exists, too. :stuck_out_tongue: Could always dress up like the high-class boss dealing with the antics of his two dumbass goons.

In the poly they could also dress as the Pokemon Go trainers (in their original costumes, the new ones are shit):

That would actually be fairly low effort for my mc, after he upgrades his wardrobe he’d likely have leather pants and sneakers like that already and the orange hoodie could be purchased. The jacket and amulet are the only thing he’d really have to make. Plus he’s already naturally blond, just need to get a lot of gel to make the spiky haircut. :thinking:

It’s not Pokemon but I sure would choose this as the Mars/Nova/MC poly Halloween costume:

Bodysuits are basically gender neutral, though my mc would not stuff or wear fake boobs. The leather bodysuits of the 00’s X-men franchise would be more his preference though:

Ew, no. Those superhero movies were embarassed to be about superheroes. Put some colour on those things.

To be honest I like this edgy style with everyone dressed as Black Widow

And maybe the underwear outside the costume ? Bring back the good old :stuck_out_tongue:

Huh, the blue actually has Mars’ coloring, minus the red eyes. Neat!

Though thematically blue is the brainiac team, but as long as they let him have yellow my mc would be cool with however Mars and Nova decide to divide the other two roles as Mars is also smart.

Yuck! The underwear outside the costume was always dreadful. Or you could go back to pre-WW2 comic book heroes for costume inspiration, they often had easier to make costumes anyway. In that case my mc would prefer the gay ghost even though the swashbuckler costume with the thigh-high boots is the most elaborate of the bunch, but, hey, at least no underwear on the outside.

Ah crap, is Victoria a Gojo expy?

2 Likes

In the sense she’s (atm) the strongest person on the side of good? Kind of.

In the sense her abilities are stupidly broken and you need to do insane plans to get through them? Not even close.

In the sense she’s got an ego the size of Africa and has absolutely no qualms about telling the Broken King himself he’s not hot shit compared to her? Ohohoho abso-fucking-lutely.

Her eyes and hair color may also bear a resemblance.

That wasn’t intended, I can say that much. :stuck_out_tongue: I gave her white hair because it felt ‘suitably unique’ for the position she occupies in the story and all that.

Also, I’m a sucker for parallels, so her having pure white hair while Seeker has deep black and all that definitely played a part in it.

I’m glad you compared her eyes to Gojo’s, though. In-universe, there’s a little ‘tell’ in the eyes that lets you know when someone is actually really strong. They look almost crystallized.
