So yeah, I was wondering about your turn on the Hunt, because of these, lol.
1. The puppet was using Body Flicker, to attack you, you know? Or I guess in a puppet's case, Chakra Enhanced Speed. But the thing is, accelerated puppet, lol. I'm assuming Yoshida used Body Flicker to dodge? Or varation of it almost? I mean that's fine but that would take more chakra that the puppet was using in order to dodge it, I think. And then, there's teh electrical charge, you may want to jump higher over it, or you might have shocked yourself xD
2. The barrier. If you jumped over the arm, then the barriers already been set, then where did it go? Are you still in it lol? And then your fire barrier would either be within mine, or include Eika in it, because she is closer to Shingi than I am. Oh and, don't forget the Sand thing Long threw at you (I didn't hit it, all I said was if you dodged it, and it ended up hitting the puppet, it would not work), just a heads up, anyway.
Well, from how it was written, what had played through my mind was that Yoshida had used basic chakra control and flow in order to increase the height of his jump. Also, even though the Sand bullet is coming at him, Asaka still attacked, which would mean that the sand bullet hit the arm rather than Yoshida. As for dodging the electric field, the size was not specified therefore I had to assume that the field was a moderately small one as electricity can only go so far without a medium.
Of course, I didn't forget the barrier. In fact, I felt the need to mention the barrier because of how obviously cheap it would be if Yoshida actually escaped it in that one move. So yes, he is still within the barrier.
Oh yeah, I remember now. How about I rejoin chat after I finish writing for one of Yoshida's sections? I want to delve more into this and show that even someone as low on this site's food chain as I am can make a good plot.
First thing is first, Long, said he'll be ready Friday. Second, I wanted to know how Yoshida will do things. Will we do the Brigade (Shingi would be a none clansmen), Three Wanderers (Yoshi,Shingi, and that other guy who remains unknown), or would you like to do the Akatsuki rebirth? Decision is up to you.
Hello. I wanted to ask you a question about something, and feel free to tell me to get lost, but I feel like I should at least ask. On the Black Lightning application, you mentioned that you had a theory about Black Lightning being a result of "reverse" thermochromism, but you didn't really go into the explanation beyond that Yoshida merged it with his Will Flame. Now, I don't see anything on his page about it in detail, and my assumption is that it's just flames reigned in through his willpower. So, if you would be so kind, would you perhaps tell me about this theory?
Well, the basic concept of thermochromism is that the hotter something gets, the more it changes color. This is normally the case. Black Lightning, in my mind, is a result of this because of its probable extreme temperature. It is so hot that its color becomes darker instead of brighter even though it is an inorganic material. This may sound ridiculous but I actually applied for this because of a dream I had about the possible mechanics of Black Lightning.
As for the reverse part, I said that because thermochromism is different between organic and inorganic materials. For example, a piece of meat becomes black as you burn it while a piece of metal becomes almost a whitish red as it burns. In my theory, Black Lightning switches those two and takes the thermochromic properties of an organic material possibly due to it being chakra.
What about Dark Lightning?
"A team of physicists, including Joseph Dwyer at Florida Tech have developed a model of how thunderstorms produce high energy radiation. In this model, instead of lightning, thunderstorms can also result in an electrical breakdown of high-energy electrons and the antimatter equivalent, positrons. The interaction between the electrons and positrons creates explosive growth in some of these high energy particles emitting the observed terrestrial gamma-ray flashes and rapidly discharging the thundercloud, sometimes even faster than normal lightning. Even though abundant gamma-rays are emitted by this process, with little or no visible light, it creates an electrical breakdown within the storms now called "dark lightning" by the scientific community." Wikipedia
Well, as a physics college student, the science behind this theory is rather... shaky. You are seeing Lightning far too much like a substance. Chakra doesn't "become" lightning, or any element for that matter. It simply emulates the nature of lightning. It is still chakra. Lightning's nature, whether you want to view it from a bagua view point or a science view point, is excitation. That's why the chakra paper wrinkles up. If you look at Black Lightning, especially in the anime, you will notice that it looks really congealed, like a huge mass of energy gathered together like an extremely viscous liquid. From one point of view, I'd assume this is because a potent form of Yin Release is being applied to the Lightning Release, giving it the black color and being responsible for it becoming congealed rather than expansive. It gives the lightning form and shape, rather than mere bolts of excitation. Since electricity is the result of a transfer of energy between electrons and a whole thing with charges, it is impossible to apply the same science that would fit such a case with chakra that merely emulates the nature of lightning.
If you want my advice on the matter, I'd refrain from using that logic, but my word counts for very little these days, so... Yeah, I'll just leave it at that. Thank you for explaining your logic with the theory though, I appreciate your time.
Hmm, well I do appreciate your opinion as you seem to have knowledge on the matter. I'll review my idea using the new information presented. However, the Yin Release being applied to Lightning has already been done by User:Chix777, and as such I had to completely rethink, or rather re-dream my acquisition of Black Lightning. Once again, I truly do appreciate you advice.
If I can offer a new take on the subject, unless you plan to just use your previous theory, your Yoshida character has some emphasis on "Flow". How about coming up with a method of reversing the flow of your chakra? I'll use some loose Ba Gua here. For example, by completely changing the natural flow of chakra in the body (for example, doing so would turn the "Eighth Gate" in the heart into the "First Gate") as it would now be moving in the opposite direction, you'd be causing the elements that Yoshida's chakra attempts to emulate to become "reciprocals" of their original natures. For example, lightning is normally "excitation", but instead, its trigram would become an inverse, and the Yin force would instead becoming the influential factor. In doing so, you can create Black Lightning. And using the same logic, you can even create reversals of the other elements too. Just a suggestion.
That seems interesting but I'm afraid that you may be mistaken about Yoshida's "Flow". That section is referring to his hand-to-hand combat, his ability to flow in between different ranges. This concept of reversing chakra flow, however, is quite intriguing. I may just incorporate that into my new idea for Black Lightning. Thank you very much.
The biggest change I'm gong to have is that the Lightning is going to have different possible colors which will not only have varying powers, but also varying effects when used. I'm also going to add a Known Users section, as well.
Well Jak, I think that'd be more of a jutsu. That would be titled "Colored Lightning" with the lists of the effects of each type of colors. You could even label it a Fighting Style, or Hiden.
I'm not telling you how to do it, just seems like the way I'd go about doing it. You may need a whole new lightning release page, though I don't think so. However, I can't tell you how to write really, just a suggestion to consider.
