SufficientVelocity Worm Forum. QuestionableQuesting Creative Writing Forum. Fic Search - General All tinker fics self. Looking for a list of good tinker fics. Also, it would be nice if you can put their tinker specialization too. Ah, I didn't think to include Salve or Conference Call. I see some I haven't read before too. I just want to thank you for mentioning Mother of Learning. It might not have been appropriate for this subreddit, but it was a great read.

Advancing Technology - Taylor can learn from tinker tech. Makes friends with Armsmaster. Boom - Has a Taylor with Bakuda's power. Crossovers: Vulcan's Forge - Star Trek.Tinker is one of the twelve power classifications created by the PRT still in modern day use.
Tinkers are among the most flexible parahumans, as a typical Tinker can artificially assume any number of other classifications depending on specialty,  in addition to drawing inspiration from the powers of other parahumans or the work of other Tinkers. Tinkers can be divided in twelve sub-categories: . Tinkers arise from problems without solutions that take place over long periods, culminating in crisis moment.
A Tinker starts out with having ideas. A wide variety ideas that just might catch on what ideas the shard might backup. A typical tinker will start crafting their technology, but unlike a typical artisan's process the Tinker's will be interpolated with the shard stepping in during the process, using its exclusive features to tune the resulting technology. Thus, unlike an artist making a painting the process doesn't just take place on one plane of reality,  in fact the full process can't be seen in the regular 4-D reality humans are evolved to deal with.
As an addendum; given the wide diversity of parahumans in the world it is not unknown for tinkers to wildly diverge in the methods they take to achieve their results. Through the above mentioned scanning process and possibly even appropriating other Tinkers research,   tinkers can 'push' their Tinkering portfolio into other specialties if they are willing to invest the time and energy while dealing with the challenges inherent with being an active parahuman.
Due to the process outlined above a Tinker device is nigh-impossible for normal humans to recreate, reverse-engineer, or even maintain. Tinkers are often able to modify devices of other Tinkers, although even here the end-result will be of lesser quality.
On the other hand, others — even ordinary humans — are able to use Tinker devices. Tinkers even equip teammates with items although this is unusual while some Tinkers, such as those from Toyboxsell their goods on the black market. Regardless a Tinker is a huge asset to any team and are thus highly sought after,  if not outright abducted. The thing to understand with tinkers is that they can assume any number of artificial classifications thanks to the technology they create. Blasto and Cask are good examples of this phenomena.
There are those whose tinkering works through an alternate means, such as those who can create tinker devices through their presenceor those who have a separate power distinct from their tinkering. Thinker abilities are also known to occur, as they may compliment the tinker power letting them use their power more effectively. Interestingly there are parahumans that create items and technology that are explicitly not tinker-tech yet still acts as a vector for their powers. Tinkers are less dangerous when removed from their gear, but should not be assumed to be harmless.
Note: This list describes the Tinker classifications and Tinker aspects of different parahumans.

AN: This is a new quest I thought of while playing Akinator.Thinker is one of the twelve power classifications created by the PRT still in modern day use. Thinkers might use their abilities to gather or receive information,  such as various types of clairvoyants including post-cogs, pre-cogs, peri-cogs  and more. A Thinkers powers might manifest in variety of different ways, but are currently sorted into seven distinct types: .
Trigger events usually produce Thinkers when the parahuman experiences large amounts of emotional and mental strain while a crisis point is reached in a short period of time. Thinker is an extremely common secondary classification,  often in support of other powers, as such, Thinker is not truly tied to any other classification. The PRT employs a large amount of Thinkers in their operations. They are used to vet applicants,  but were also used to screen individuals during the outtake process for the Madison Quarantine Zone.
In direct engagements, the PRT-teams often targets Thinkers first, considering them the highest priority when all numbers are assumed to be equal. Note: This list describes the Thinker classifications and Thinker aspects of different parahumans.

Contents [ show ]. Maybe that had been the intention from the start: Mover, Shaker, Brute and Breaker. Includes clairvoyance, precognition, skill acquisition, enhanced hearing and enhanced sight. Result from violent thoughts, abstract handling of past violence. Zone Thinker - Powers that interact with or sense environment. Quick Thinker - Thinker powers that operate faster or allow more mental actions and processing. Target Thinker - Thinker power focuses on a singular subject, person, thing, or subject.
Offhand Thinker - Power doesn't grant thinker power directly to self, but to others or operates through a vector. Fallout Thinker - Thinker power ripples outward, is time delayed, or cumulative over time for optimal effect.
Has time not lead-up to trigger, but within the trigger as a factor. Scatterbrain Thinker - Thinker power affords some flexibility to how power is utilized, managed, or focused. Versatility focused. Trigger has confusion or missing information as a factor. Meditative Thinker - Thinker power uses sleep, periods of rest, deep focus or downtime to take advantage of or deploy.
Social Thinker - Perceptive powers involve people, relationships, or emotions. Trigger tends to involve abstract not real relationships. Proficiency Thinker - Powers grant skill or talent.Freshwater Crab Vs Tiger Leech - MONSTER BUG WARS
Thinkers manifest from emotional or mental strain, reaching a crisis point in a short time. I like that. She builds a framework of inference around the subject at hand, and her power fills in the gaps, working inward towards complete understanding. Except when she misses her target from the start and the circle forms in the wrong place, resulting in bad times for Lisa.Stranger is one of the twelve power classifications created by the PRT still in modern day use. Stranger abilities might allow the user and sometimes their allies to bypass defenses, mislead opponents, or to avoid notice.
Stranger powers are result of a trigger event involving a threat to emotional and mental security or social or collective pressure, often with a focus on unwanted attention. Stranger triggers often have a great deal of overlap with other categories: Masters and Changers in particular tend to find parallels with Strangers. From the perspective of the entitiesStrangers stand as a mark opposite to Tinkers. Where Tinkers are created to study powers in more depth, Stranger powers tend to be a vehicle or an angle for lesser powers or fully researched powers to be used in a more effective way and serve particular purposes, or to collect data on psychology.
Because the entities have no great use for these powers, the Stranger powers are often incidental, more the result of the individual using their powers a certain way than a plan of the entities.
When dealing with Strangers, the PRT has a full 'eyes on' standard operating procedure. As the threat rating of the Stranger is increased, additional measures are taken: .

Valefor was more the latter. Ability in question might bypass defenses, mislead, or help to avoid notice. Area effect coverage with individuals affected, distractions, or avenues for entry. Examples include cloaking, phasing, hologram technology or emotion altering technology. The stranger and changer aspects thus blend together seamlessly for much this reason, the changer category is sometimes referred to as shifter, an old designation for this specific eventuality.
Striking opponents delivers a status effect in addition to standard effects. This can be singular or from the world as a collective. There is obviously a great deal of overlap between these powers and others, as a result. Masters and Changers in particular tend to find parallels with Strangers.
Emotion control, body puppeteering, and the ability to inflict prosopagnosia on enemies and sow dissension in the ranks would fall in this category. Such a trigger would either involve an audience or observer while the harm took place or the abstract harm is driven home by a concerted effort and fixation on the part of the other party. The options here are too varied to name, but tend to involve toggling the state, often with a cost, but is stronger than it would be without the breaker state.
It stands as a marked opposite to tinkering in this respect, where the powers are being investigated in more depth. In many cases, the Stranger element is incidental, more about the direction the individual goes than about the plan of the entities.
Other safeguards include indiscriminate fire and high priority targeting. Passwords in effect. Out of action or out of consideration for now.Flair your posts correctly and use spoiler tags where appropriate.

SufficientVelocity Worm Forum. QuestionableQuesting Creative Writing Forum. Hey, an excuse for self-promotion! Also, she's dating Dennis. I just opened the thread to recommend this! Your story is great, perfect balance between hard cape business and slice-of-life stuff.
Good work! Trump Card gives her power duplication, which she uses for tinkering quite a lot.
Seed gives her Blasto's power. Trailblazin' is currently short, but Taylor has drug-related Tinker powers. Nike has her bud off of Miss Militia with an odd Tinker power.
Memories of Iron gives Taylor Tony Stark's voice in her head. Complete with the ability to make his tech. Basically a proto-Synaesthesia same author. Was Nike a tinker power? I thought it was more imprinting weapons onto mundane objects, including tinker weapons? Revenant is ongoing, with solid writing. Hell yeah it is, it inspired me to get some of those glorious tinkerfics into the reading backlog.
Ex Machina. Taylor builds a bunch of robots none of them larger than human though to keep things balanced and becomes a sort of apprentice to Dragon. Not a super serious story as you might have guessedbut very funny and with some cute shipping later on. TTQ does have legions of dastardly disposable minion bots though and none of them ever explode on their own, which would speak against Leet's power.Striker is one of the twelve power classifications created by the PRT still in modern day use.
Strikers are parahumans that have powers that are touch-based or melee ranged. It should be noted that enhanced strength is generally not a Striker power, but part of the Brute classification,  although Flechette claims some forms of strength not accompanied by increased durability are considered Striker powers .
Strikers result from immediate, in-your-face threat, usually a singular object or individual. Open areas are preferred over cramped quarters. Unlike most other classifications, the Striker rating has no additional countermeasures for a rating of nine or higher. Note: This list describes the Striker classifications and Striker aspects of different parahumans. For a full overview of their abilities, please check their individual pages. Can manifest weapons of solid or burning light.

Open areas are preferrable to cramped quarters. Formation should maintain a distance. Foam sprayers authorized. Technically, she was a striker, a cape with the ability to apply some effect by touch or at point-blank range. The striker classification could include certain breaker effects as they were applied to things other than the cape themselves, but not always.
A cape with a ranged attack. On delivering an attack, gain an augmentation for follow-up attacks, carrying over until the fighting ceases for a minute or more.
Augmentation can include added accuracy, damage, attack speed, or enhanced effect, but remains consistent with a given vial result if damage, is always damage. Acidbath moved with surprising quickness, faster than a typical car might. A peculiarity of his breaker power. The bad news is that the PRT rated him as a striker seven. Was once Madcap, a jailbreak specialist, but was captured by Legend and Battery, and joined the Protectorate.
Eventually married Battery. Inertial alteration effect in an area, somewhat selective, inverse effect for self. Disrupts energy. Can affect herself independently of the general effect, with some benefits of a dampening effect alongside the benefits of acceleration, justifying her Brute, Striker and Mover classifications.
Machinery tends to fail or work intermittently within the field. If you had to put a number to the Brute, it would be 1. Classifications get murky out of context, though. Until they had more to work with, it was merely data.
Glimmers of memories and dreams, the conclusion had been, after long discussions with Eidolon and the parahuman researchers. An effect of the thinker power required to manage his own ability, tied to trigger events in some fashion.
The largest was thirty feet long, running from the ramp at the back to the cabin at the front, almost entirely set into the floor. There was no decoration on it. Only mass, sturdy craftsmanship, and the mechanisms necessary for the cannon that was set inside the handle and blade.
He could see the general makeup of the two weapons, the phantom images, the underlying physics, in lines and shapes and patterns.
