(Oh can you force others to here everything once you tape in to their mind. It would be a pretty cool power. You could call it “System Meltdown”.)
Well if it was me I would probably never use my power. I'd try to get rid of them. Or find away to avoid any trouble. While protecting my mind from others probes .
From a writer stand point that not that interesting.
So here my thoughts on what I do. So I guess I would probably start off like that but slowly become more and more paranoid. This will cause me to sit down and try to reassess my new found powers. This would lead me to start to dig deep with in my own subconscious creating fire walls and suppressing memories in my mind. I wouldn't stop their, but rather I would continue onward to plant subliminal messages with in my own mind to force myself to become better than the state I‘m in. Once I feel that I've gotten a handle on my personal life I would move on to manipulating others. I would start off with little animals. I’d read animals minds then start controlling them to do special task. I’d do this till they become the equivalent to a “slave pet”. This means I wouldn't have to manipulate them to do thing, but I could control them by my voice alone and have them do complex task. After that I would plant thoughts in people minds and I would do it till they think it something coming from their own subconscious. All in good fun of course to see how far my power could span.
Being that there our people out there with stronger minds or wills then my own I’d have to make a safety measure. I’d create a small suppress bundle of thoughts of all the bad things that I have done or have been done to me. This would be like a small bomb hind in my mind, which I could use to upload it in to people to shut them down due to a system overload. In other word either they will enter a coma or have a serve migraine.So if they try to enter into my mind their mind will be smash first. It would be my last defense of course.
By this time I would slowly become more and more insane. So either I would wrestle with my own insanity or accept it or have it consume me. My insanity probably would manifest it self in a form of an alter ego. This new being would be impositions of all my bad traits and all of my good traits use for all the bad reasons. Other then that I would probably join the department of defends that deals with my kind. All for the purpose of understanding the system from the inside out and later control the department. Then I’d move on to politic then slowly taking over the world. I would of course have to a mass a powerful syndicate of telepathic people because the different political parties have a bunch of them. I would then start a project that would help me increase my own power while blocking out other people. While doing all that I would start a secret a cult so I can send out my hit man to do my binding. The “Slave pet” would be apart of that group. Also if any found out what my powers were I'd have them assassinated.
Yay, finally time to answer this question! <3. Been using this as motivation to get work done lol.
Been thinking about this one for a while, but I think that different characters will have different lives and each person will have many sides of them. As a story freak, I can't pick one definite answer. So......... MUAHAHAHA, this is what I would do if I was several characters, (so it's in first person)
As a "Dark" Artist:
If art was the medium of the message, then I would do anything to create that Art. It has been a while since I have used my power, but the time is ripe for the final show. As I walk down an dark ally, with the moon leading my trail, I wonder what had brought me to this stage. Strange, I was against this in the beginning, but actions speak louder than words but only when actions are seen. I guess that is why I decided I needed a bigger stage. Will I be caught and punished? Probably. I am fine with that though. The one laughing in the end will be me.
I put my heavy baggage down to take a breath, although I do not have much time. I have planned for the show for years, where justice will finally obtained for the millions without a voice, but for some reason, my heart feels heavy of dread and pain. Was this revenge or justice? There was no clear line anymore. But I can't live how I lived before anymore. I don't want to be shut away, powerless in an attic in a forgotten cottage far away. Something has to be done, or I will never be able to face myself.
Funny, I'd used to think this power that I had was a curse. Now I don't know what it is. Control another's mind or be controlled. Did it always have to be like that?
Ding Dong Ding Dong Ding Dong.... Ding Dong.
It is 12 now, I must move. I heave my baggage over my shoulder and walk up the steps to the government building.
"Excuse me, I am a lost traveler," I say to the guard, "May I ask where I get to May-field Hotel?"
"Um, it's down..." the guard begins and will him to get a map, "I'll go get you a map. Wait here please."
After he leaves, I turn to the last remaining guard. Move. My eyes tell him; I control his movements like a doll. I enter the government building and look back at the last guard before hell again. Now forget.
...... I don't know the context of the story so I just made that up and didn't go into too much detail.
As a Government agent:
For the country I serve, and the country will serve me. Now who is the master? The truth is both thinks it is the master but no one actually is. Which side am I on? The government, it is the more powerful of the two, providing that I keep the people calm and "happy". Happiness, is such a strange thing. Sometimes I regret it though. But never-mind that, I owe the government my service, after all they are the ones that pardoned me for my crimes and allowed for me to live.
"Hey, Lian [random name] put your feet back on the ground and get to work!" Boss's irately voice buzzed in my earpiece.
"How annoying," I mutter to myself and stare at the endless work behind my feet.
Buzz “Lian, never mind!” Buzz “You have a job. Check your email.” Buzz *Boss out.
I open my email and grab a mind-bending deterring gun. I pop a couple pieces of gum into my mouth and head to the street with my coat over my shoulder.
It never made sense to me. I mean the secret jobs I do. It’s nothing more than an eye for an eye and the irony haunts me… mind bending in order to punish mind bending…
I guess I never learn. I laugh bitterly.
For the country I will serve.
As an outcast:
It’s quiet today. As usual. I like silence and peace so I don’t mind. I can’t stand the city, so I move into the most isolated place I can find. It’s so much better when I wasn’t tempted to use my powers. Why do I even have them? Why do people have them? Those powers can’t do anything but harm! I sip my tea. Peace, peace, I tell myself. Never again do I have to worry about the problems of others, I can live in my own world, my own interpretation. I will have as little to do with others as much as possible. Although I have to admit… it is a little lonely sometimes.
Oh well, I am good at being lonely. As I open the door of my house lost within mountains and forests, sunlight blinds my eyes for a few seconds. It’s a good day to be doomed, I think as I check my vegetable. Guess it’s snow-pea soup today
As a dealer
Money. It’s all about the money. If I can get my hands on money, I will do the job. Those little government scums think they can catch me, but I am uncatchable. I don’t live underground. I AM THE UNDERGROUND! I smile as I enter a coffee shop. “One black coffee please, extra strong,” I lean against the counter smirking at the cashier.
“Right away sir…”
I scan the café as I wait for the coffee. Where is my target? Ah, over there, sitting alone in the corner. I roll my eyes, this is almost too easy.
Or it seems.
Holding the coffee in my left hand I walk towards the target. As I approach him I fake trip.
“Oh, I’m sorry”, I smile at the target, “Why don’t I buy you a new coat after I ruined the one I just ruined?” I do not give him the option to refuse, “Follow me.” The game is on.
As I lead him into a dark alley, I search his mind for what I need. “Yo,” I turn to him, “I changed my mind, reach into your right pocket and hold out that item with the dragon engravings.”
He does that, just in time when my mind bending breaks from his mind. “Too late,” I grin heartlessly with the item in my hand as the target pulls out the mind-bending deterring gun, “I’ll see you later!” I disappear in a fury of smoke.
“I am the underground”
XD XD XD I have so many characters but I think this is getting too long so I’ll leave it at this….
So fun thou XD
