    Really? Do you think that the Department of Labor is powerless in Earth-Bet's USA, then, or maliciously useless?

    I think that the PRT has a lot of weight to throw around, at least with the other "alphabet soup" groups within the United States government.
    And that, yeah, there could be a bit of malicious negligence on the DoL's part when it comes to Parahumans.

    OK, so we're getting into matters of opinion, then. I don't agree, but there's no way to be sure either way.

    So a scenario I had recently, due in small part by Thirteen's face reveal in MHA and my thought of Pairings. Where the Triumvirate of Brockton Bay Taylor, Lisa & Amy) are transported to the Earth of MHA but they arrive during the days of when the teachers were students. Time warps forward and we catch up with the Earth Bet escapees, they've all settled in. Taylor is in a relationship with both Thirteen and Powerloader, Amy is in a relationship with Midnight, and Lisa is in a Relationship with Night Eye. Taylor looks after both her workaholic partners, Amy keeps Nemuri on a tight leash (no innuendo intended), and Lisa just trolls her partner in crime.

    An idea where I'm not sure how it got to this point (which would affect where it goes from here), as there are too many possibilities:

    As Taylor neared Winslow, she noticed a lot of students coming the other way. Madison walked passed her without insult, or even acknowledgement, just saying "Nope. Nope. Fucking nope."

    Curious, Taylor continued on until she turned the corner and saw the school, which looked very different from yesterday: The school fence had become a dark, gothic looking wall with wrought iron spikes at the top, the gates were likewise of wrought iron, and what she could see of the school buildings was also very gothic - not in the sense of historical gothic architecture, but like a really dark, pretentious goth had become an architect and been told to design his gothic dream (or nightmare) school.

    Taylor decided that for once, Madison was right. Today was a good day to skip school.

    This is a scenario idea based off of "Skeleton Soldier Couldn't Protect the Dungeon" in which instead of living at the end of her journey, Taylor died and woke up in the hospital on the exact same date as she did all those months ago. She gains a pop up menu and gamer system, at first she tries to save everyone else but she keep dying, however once she takes a new path things begin to change. If she helps someone reach the end of their journey, everything changes regarding them and the past Taylor wakes up to is different too. For example if she were to help Amy reach the best ending for her and complete her quest to fulfillment, the world Taylor would wake up to would be one where Amy is at her best while recalling everything about her time from being with Taylor during her quest. This feature applies to groups as well and individuals, imagine Taylor helping Uber and Leet in one questor even the merchants, resulting in a better opening where either of them are better than the originally were.

    I don't know if anyone's thought of this but a scenario in which Rachel, after the death of her foster mother and her flight away from the area is eventually integrated into Brad Meadows small Three-Person unit.

    Maybe if it turns out his "dog-fighting ring" is actually people fighting enhanced dogs and the dogs tend to survive.

    But in canon they have an irreconcilable difference.

    Imagine, if you will, that you are in the Image department for Brockton Bay's Wards team, and have been assigned to help the newest Ward make her PR-unfriendly power acceptable to the public, without limiting her so much or so annoyingly that she either decides to quit, or becomes outright hostile to the PRT. Said Ward, who also needs a cape name as going by her birth-name of Taylor Hebert wouldn't work for many reasons, has the power to temporarily summon members of the Sith Empire from the era of the Great Hyperspace War. She has supermultitasking and they obey her mental commands, but they're also in many cases clever adults while she's a teenager, and they tend to interpret her commands in rather Sithly ways. Also, it is necessary to keep Taylor and some of her 'projections' away from Director Piggot, as the group includes biotinkers who give the Director flashbacks.

    Incidentally, you may also want to keep the full scope of her power quiet as long as possible: She hasn't found an upper limit to the number of Sith she can summon. The most that she's had out at one time was twenty, but that was due to the amount of floorspace in the testing room, and she thinks the total number is much, much higher.

    So, what do you do? (Quitting yourself is technically a valid option, but isn't very interesting.)

    Taylor triggers earlier, and under different circumstances, thus gaining a different power: Administration of the Senses. She can perceive though the senses of living things around her (including senses like proprioception, that tend to get ignored in stories like this, as well as parahuman abilities), has supermultitasking to help deal with that, and can influence what people in her range perceive. She doesn't have total control over the senses of others, especially not at first, but can give general instructions making targets hallucinate something (the victims' minds interpret the instructions, though something like 'you don't notice me' works pretty consistently); since she can see (or hear, or whichever) what her victims do, she can adjust her orders on the fly. With more practice, she can give more complex instructions with better control, and the more she knows a specific target, the better she can tailor their hallucinations. She has a bit more control over dreams, but even there, things are open to interpretation.

    Gaslighting Emma, for example, is fairly easy, and gets easier as she begins to understands how her friend has changed. Gaslighting Sophia is rather trickier, but since she's smarter and more creative than Sophia, and Sophia is not mentally prepared for this sort of opponent, she can still do pretty well. It helps that this is before Sophia got caught by the PRT, and Stalker is both too confident and too distrustful of authority to go to them.

    No Good Deed... by Ld1449 on SB has something very close to this, she needs to make eye contact first to connect but then can control the senses of anyone she is connected to. Dark but well written story. Incomplete but not dead, author is bouncing between a few of the in progress stories working on finishing them.
