Superpowers: Hidden Benefits

Posted on: July 7, 2011

Sometimes it’s good to have awesome superpowers in mundane situations. Here’s an excerpt from the draft of The Spark I’m working on, featuring Dee. She’s a character you’ll meet in Fly Into Fire, and her abilities are luck and firestarting. She basically has a lot of heat energy, and can do some very useful things with it:

Dee ordered something relatively cheap (Will couldn’t be counted on to pay for both meals) and forced a respectable portion of it down. The potatoes, she discovered to her irritation, had arrived cold. She unobtrusively stuck a finger in them; they started steaming instantly.

This is something I wish I could do.
