Curious Cuisine (Superhero/Cooking)

Heh. shh, spoilers there with those two XD

  1. Most: Bits with banter and the little blink and you miss it bits, whether they are cameos, shout-outs or plotstuff
    Least: Remembering to put page_breaks and choices into the story. sometimes i’m so in the flow that I outright forget that the latter’s ought to be there. and then comes the trouble of making good ones.

  2. Normal human, probably… likely umbrakinetic

Question to the community:

(...) shrugs. "You love your child with all of your heart, but whatever your reasons might be, " he rubs his chin in thought, giving you a scrutinizing glance, "measured on a scale from 1 to 100, the relationship between $!{kid_firstname} and you would be somewhere around ${kidparent}. From $!{kid_firstname}'s point-of-view of course. And it is getting lower."

Too meta?


Yeah… it is a bit weird, to ask someone to measure a scale from 1 to 100 … more ever, it was already love with all your heart , why still insist on the scale of love ? :slight_smile:

Ah, i should have put the whole context on, shouldn’t I Dx
This line only happens if you scolded your kid a number of times, and the person saying it is a little… peculiar

Wondering whether you are thinking of inserting a small consequence on how MC treat their children ? Example if we spoil our kid , perhaps He/she will be too daring in doing something which invite trouble while discipline them will prevent such consequence ? Lol :-):stuck_out_tongue:


Naw. You raised your kid too responsible for that (the pudding thing at cousin Maud’s birthday does not count!).
But if you keep scolding and mocking them they’ll get rather spitefull and scared, leading to rather bad injuries during ch3 and you getting an earful from Heatstroke and the mayor


Eh, I like it. Some people actually do talk like that.

i don’t mind it since i have an idea on the speaker is.

On another note:
What kind of cafe is Timeless during Audley’s time? (i mean is it like a commercial coffeeshop or a cafe that can hold events, workshops and gatherings. nothing too spoiler-y)

It was, well, there were little events (music, stand up, poetry) and such. Audley did do a lot of baking and cooking himself, and somehow the cafe attracted quite a number of people from around town (I’ll be honest, he’s been a pretty good baker)


Quick heads up:

A warning

The next update will contain mild injuries with the potential of squicking someone out and in the worst case be triggering.

This is what happens:
Read the following at your own risk:

One of the kids volunteering at school, a ferrokinetic, experienced a power flare, causing her arm melt into her locker. There’s blood involved, but no explicit description of what it looks like

Also she’ll be fine once the shock has passed and everything is healed up again.


Thanks for the heads-up since i’m a pretty visual thinker. Now excuse me while i try to divert my thoughts.

I keep mixing things up.

MiniBio time:


Name: Lionel Donovan
Codename: Scorn
Gender: male (cis)
Age: 51
DoB: October 23
Race: white
Hair: black
Eyes: black
Height: 6’4
FaceClaim: Ed Quinn

Lionel Donovan is one of the most dangerous people in Cornucopia.

By all official means a legit businessman, it’s an open (but legally unprovable) secret that he is the head of one of CoCi’s worst criminal organizations.

Scorn is regarded as as ruthless as he is cunning, but indisputably fair. Most people that cross him even show up alive again.

His official businesses range from casinos to hotels to shipping companies across town, his unofficial ones… are the same in a much darker shade of moral and lethality.

The most well-known (infamous) establishment of the latter kind is a nightclub/aether-den called Bliss, located on the fourth ring of the TC-D. The Bliss had been the property of the Jade Empress around 15 years ago, before she made the fatal mistake of kidnapping Scorn’s son Colby (Naught), trying to press money and property out of Scorn.

It’s not clear if (and if, how) the Jade Empress survived this misstep, but her demise secured Scorn the control over the third and fourth ring. Only recently someone using the alias of Jade Empress surfaced as the head of the organization controlling the fifth to eighth ring, but it’s not clear if this is the same woman, someone using her name, or if there even is an actual person.

Scorn is a most talented umbrakinetic, teleporter and power-thief, quite a bit of a bon vivant and a widower. As ruthless and cold as he is in business, as caring and loving he is as a father.

Have a good new year


I’ve removed the off topic material. Please keep this discussion focused on this WIP.

The author questioning whether or not to continue the WIP is off topic huh?


My goal is to keep this thread from becoming about off-forum interpersonal conflict and then getting locked, and it was going in that direction. If people want to talk about the other stuff, please keep it to PMs.
