In a hypothetical situation, yes I think that scenario would happen. But I think my body has a 'limit' of how much I can absorb. I can go beyond that limit but I would then need to burn off that excess energy as soon as possible. Hence why I often need to take a nice cold bath. But that could come in handy if there is a nuclear reactor that is melting down or if there is still some radiation left to be absorbed.

Hmmm, maybe I should take a trip to Chernobyl sometime? It would help with the clean-up process.

You'd think that superspeed would make me more punctual, huh?

Well, if you do, you'll have to tell us about it!

On another subject. Do you ever find it hard to control your powers? Any embarrassing situations?

I'll be sure to do that.

Yeah, there are times where I find it hard to control my powers.

I did mention numerous samples where my feet are constantly hovering if I'm thinking about a very pleasant memory or if I'm feeling really happy. And the Slenderman incident...-shudders-...I still can't play that game.

Actually, to be honest with you, I'm a sucker for a good horror/thriller film. Which also results in a lot of embarrassing situations. I mean, in real life, people can't sneak up on me because I'll be able to hear them coming 10 miles away. But when I'm watching a film, I can't hear any of the actors since they usually mix-out any cues with that suspenseful music or other cues that are meant to scare you.

So whenever the scary part comes, it usually results in something being broken. Whether I accidentally melt my TV with my heatvision or breaking a cup or two with my screaming, something tends to happen. So I kinda avoid watching any horror movies.

On the side note, having a warranty on the TV is awesome. Makes things that much easier for me.

So you are nearly a regular at the local electronic store? Can imagine you coming in with another melted TV and trying to explain it

Funny you should ask!
My mom’s house in New York is very spacious and has quite a bit of land, which usually translates to a plethora of chores.

So whenever I come over to visit, I’m usually left with a list of things that I have to do, and for some strange reason, they are usually things that only I can do.

Last week was pretty interesting to say the least. My mom left me a long list as usual. Some of the stuff I did was replace the shingles on the roof of the house. Of course, instead of using a ladder, I just simply hovered there, wearing nothing but a tanktop and shorts as I didn’t even use a hammer for the nails, I just simply flicked it lightly with my finger. I also had to trim the trees, get a wasp’s nest out of a tree, replace the fence and repaint the shed. Obviously, I tackled on these chores in my own way but I had a feeling my mom didn’t want me to use conventional means.

It seems that I wasn’t the only one benefiting these superpowers.


Sounds like she's keeping you busy! But have you ever been asked to do anything that involved some really heavy lifting?

Yep, they kinda know me by now. Though the TV thing has only happened once or twice now and I usually end up buying something when I leave with a new TV. I just pass it off as a defective tv that overheated while I was gone. They give me a funny eye but since their warranty covers all damages, it's fine.

Well, there was this big and old mower that has been collecting rust for some time now. My mom has since bought a new mower but she hasn't found a time to take it to the junkyard to dispose it herself. Naturally, I decided that I'll go ahead and dispose of it.

The mower was one of those huge, classic riding mowers that has seen better days. I casually reached down to the frame of the mower before I lifted the machine high over my head with one arm. I then reached out with my other hand to feel the metal blades, noting that I wasn't even getting a cut so I just mangled the blades underneath my grip.

Of course, it was getting to the point that I was growing bored of playing with it, I mean it was pretty light for me after all. So I just began to crush it and compress it down. I began to squish it together before compacting it here and there before it resembled a cube, and it only took me a few seconds to do that. I then flew up and headed towards the junkyard before dropping it off and flew back home before anyone saw me.

Other than that incident, I usually just carry bales of hay around wherever needed.

Just for the sake of speculation, is it harder to lift stuff while you're airborne? I don't mean in terms of balance, I mean in terms of strength and leverage. Does your flight power provides you enough leverage?

I don't find it harder persay, but I do notice that I have to use a lot more stabilizing muscles since I am literally lifting without any support other than my own body. If I'm lifting from the ground up, well I still have the hard ground to stabilize on. But if I'm hovering and lifting said object, well that is just working my core and stabilizing muscles out some more.

That is, if I can find an object heavy enough to give me a challenge ;)

I have, though I'll admit it's not the most original. Ultragirl does ring nicely though, right?

I see someone likes to read The Magic Girls saga, lol.

He doesn't get freaked out by my powers anymore, but he was pretty fascinated when I did try it though. Walking on walls and ceilings required a lot more control than I thought, which is good because I like to practice my control over my flight abilities. I might start doing that for exercises from now on.

As for walking on water, that was pretty fun as well. Though it was about the same as when I do my airwalks so it was okay, just not as cracked up as it oughta be for some reason.

Hmmm, depends on my mood.

For absorbing the sun's rays, definitely Venus. When I want to lift, Olympus Mons is my place to go.

Sunlight on Venus? I thought that sunlight couldn't get through all those clouds.

Whoops! For some reason I was thinking about Mercury. In that case, Mars all the way.

Not going to lie, it was rather tough at first!

It took most of my strength to try and lift the massive volcano. However, as I began to push, the mountain slowly started to rise above my head. I can feel the molten hot lava splash around my body as my arms barely pushed the mountain clear above my head. I then smiled as I then hovered up in the air, pressing the mountain a bit more. I even tried some compound lifts like squats and bench-presses for a full-body workout before I then placed the mountain back.

Oh, and if you hear any reports of lava spewing underneath the mountain, you guys know what really happened ;)

I think so. Most of the feats I've done so far were taxing at first but then my body begins to adapt and make it that much easier for me until it is too easy. Like when I first developed my telekinesis, I was limited to staring at the object before I can move it if I have a finger pointed at it. Now I can lift multiple things at once by barely thinking about it. I guess as soon as I overcome whatever difficulty is in front of me, the learning curve becomes very easy for me.
