Okay. I thought so. I will edit it. I just wasn't sure which angle to go, but I definitely get it now. I am having to do all this on my phone, so it may take a little adjustment for me. I am Texas bound, so I don't have my laptop with me at the moment. I should be able to edit it.
It's entirely up to you, but I would say go for it. It's almost impossible not to notice her - she really messes with your sense of vision. It's like a black hole popping up in your classroom. So it'd be difficult for him to not "see" her straight away.
Now I understand. I think Emigre is a truly interesting character. Not that you need me to tell you that, but most people never would of even though of that. Reading her description was pretty amazing, because even though I couldn't tell if Boyce was supposed to see her, the description was one of the best I've read. I could really visualize it.
Imagine someone with utterly pitch black skin, and everything about them is that same colour. Their eyes, their teeth, their fingernails. It's like a silhouette. That's Emigre. The area around her is just slightly darker than the rest of the room. You can see her.
The whole "you can't see her" thing is because her body reflects NO light. (That's how your eyes see things, you see the light reflecting off them. Like sonar, but with light.) So your eyes are trying to interpret a woman shaped hole in their vision.
I got my post up. I read your post over and over again to see if she was visible or if she wasn't visible, and sadly each time I read it I didn't understand it any better then I did the first few times. It seemed as if she wasn't meant to be visible, but that her clothes made her visible. I don't know, I get confused a little easy... Lol.
I posted as if she was visible, although barely as suggested by her description, but I can take that part out of the post completely if it is wrong.
Hey there! Just wanted to give you a heads up that I am doing some editing to the history portion of Boyce's SU. I felt that I ended it in an awkward place after reading through it a few more times, and decided to give a little more insight into his contact with the X-Men other then just quotes from his mental conversation with Professor Xavier during the incident. I also added a little more detail to his mutation section, because I again felt that it was a little dry. I've done a lot of thinking (and maybe over-thinking), but I hope you enjoy my final product.
The edits start after Everything went dark...
I have not yet posted the edits, but I wanted to go ahead and let you know that they will be there.
I hope you enjoyed my SU. I tried to keep Boyce from sounding too much like Storm, because that definitely wasn't what I was aiming for. Lol. Got stuck in parts, but I was so damn excited to see a X-Men roleplay that I pushed my way through it. Definitely happy to see someone come here with a X-Men roleplay, and a well-structured one at that.
