josematos977 chapter 40 . 2/12
One of the first limitations that made the progress of the story slowly is the time Taylor needs to invest to get the powers. None of the powers she got would make a difference against Endbringers and she spent two months or more time in getting them.

Im not saying to make her a god and unbeatable immediately, the restriction on the amount of powers she can have at any given time is a good regulator for the story to progress nicely. But spending a few days to get a lackluster projection power as Pokemon plus a week lost being traumatized in Mario seems pointless. My recommendation would be make the time she spends on the fiction world an instant in the outside but as a result she can only do it once a day and she gets extremely mentally tired.

And powers she should get from fiction:
Any intelligence increase, willpower increase, wisdom increaseshe needs experience and maturity) Im not a fan of Batman but his powers would be a perfect fit.

The Naruto character power set was a great idea and an important way to diversify with all the options she has and will have on the future.

A combo of Brute, Mover and thinker combat power. Like chakra overall physical and mental enchantments. But something on the level 4~5 of those categories.

And last but not least any powerful tinker power. Tinker 8 I would say. She will get a lot of powers in the future including more tinker powers and this one should be the base for them. Tony Stark

I'm not going to lie, I was interested in the premise but it immediately lost my interest. If you had had her first ability be blending in, invisibility, or anything to do with Chameleon's like the book title implies (and something that would even be fit for a cape starting out and would fit Taylor herself as she currently is, or rather should be), it might have been interesting, but giving her Plot Armor as a power just made it go straight to boring, even ignoring how it seems like your just going to toss her into the Wards which limits what she can actually do severely without the author pretending that Wards wouldn't be severely limited in what they're allowed to do.

Yes, obviously as the MC she would have Plot Armor (unmentioned, of course)m but it'd usually be subtle stuff and stuff that doesn't get pointed out as absurd so much as either coincidental or having an explanation that makes some sort of sense. Now it's obvious nothing actually bad is going to happen to her or those she considers her friends. The way you just showed it working, she could walk straight into Coil's base or walk up and slap Lung's ass and she wouldn't have anything bad happen barring (maybe) a few burns or being tied up only for Alexandria herself to pop up and save her before anything bad can actually happen. Even assuming she can only 'hold' one power at a time, why would she need anything else when she has Plot Armor barring her wanting to fly or shoot lasers just because. It reminds me of that one fic where Taylor's power was Luck or something similar (Shamrock's power, I think) and any time something bad could happen to her, everything just lined up to work out perfectly for her and it got boring fast.

Well, at least we know where you planned to go from ch 39, and how it would end. So... Gargoyles Time Travel Rules - history is immutable. That's my own personal favorite. It took me a chapter, but I finally linked the Simurgh's problem with Eidolon getting help from the priest. Nice idea! I don't recall seeing that elsewhere, especially where the Endbringers just start to fade in power.

Holy- I propably would lost iot at that last one and congratulated it for 'well played'.

Hmmm, perhaps a Shadowrun Technomage...?
Perhaps 'The Witches Of Karres'?
Neuromancer, perhaps some SF short-story?

Oooh, wait, what? Did Lisa... How... When? I mean, is that a skip from elsewhere, because Lisa should be verily Undersiders at the moment.

And curse you and your...
Thank all gods that they decided to use the early chapters.
Just imagine to be Gai.
I wonder what things will happen with Narutos furry problem.

"Really Taylor this is not a conversation I want to have when we look like this."
You both are Ninja, use HENGE!

My romantic life is a burning slag heap of confusion and frustration.
And a source of joy for everyone else.
CMVreud chapter 30 . 9/18/2022
Phew, nobody suggested 'God Of War', 'DOOM (2016)' or 'Bioshock'. Althought... 'Skyrim' would be perfect (as in she can learn everything and cheat, or vice versa).

Damn them and their truth and logic. And sense. DAMN THEEEEEM!

Uber speeks up, once again directing the conversation. "OK, no more delays. What are you hiding,
and why do the PRT feel the need to keep your powers a secret. Talk or we release the details we
have, and you can try spinning it to cover whatever it is your hiding. What'll it be?"

Counteroffer: You delete everything and shut your traps and we, as in Dragon and I, don't up your PRT resumé from funny-villains to search-and-destroy-whenever-and-whatever-possible, except Endbringers.

"Can you take us with you?"
Everybody needs punching bags for new powers.

I would like to formally turn ourselves over to the PRT, and start a new carrier as heroes'.

Apropos Narwhal.
You know, now I wonder how the aspect of beginning a book journey works for Player.
Does she need to read it actively (you know Ziz likes her Mnemonics), does she just have to look at it or does she only need to touch it.

Because, holy f*** if it's the later ones, that's not a negative anymore it's anti-OP and who knows what her power thinks is plot-armorable or doesn't need to be.

Theres a lot of... disturbing stuff in restricted sections.

So, you write fanfiction about an established story and within this you let a character write fanfiction about an established series.
"Yo, dawg, I heard you like fanfiction, so I put some fanfiction into your fanfiction so you can read fanfiction while reading fanfiction."

And the idiotic duo strikes again. If they knew anything about her powers they would be quiet, and quite elsewhere, like in another state far, far away.

It doesn't really matter what game, only that Armsmaster got pied.
