Yay for writing ability returning a bit. This is probably going to be the start of my superheroes fic, but you know it goes into the action scene at the end.

It was raining. It always rained in Seattle.

The woman she was watching from the rooftop was wearing a light jacket and didn't have an umbrella. The woman looked likely to catch a cold. It wasn't a problem for her watcher, crouched on the edge of the roof, wearing little more than a leotard with a flame design embossed on the chest, elbow length gloves, knee length boots and a domino mask, all in black. Puberty had revealed an interesting genetic quirk in the young adventurer meaning she didn't have to worry about staying warm. She had to worry about not leaving burning foot prints as she walked instead.

It wasn't really a major problem for the woman either. Not when she'd been working the late shift and decided to take a short cut home to minimise her time in the rain. Walking down an alley in this part of the city was never a good idea anyway, it was even worse doing it at night.

Sure enough, she watched two thugs appear from the darkness, in front of the woman. They were fairly big guys, the watcher knew she wouldn't be able to take them toe to toe. She couldn't go toe to toe with anyone but she didn't need to. The thugs both brandished guns, the heavy rain drowning out the sound of their threats. Neither made an effort to advance on the woman or grab her, much to the watcher's relief. It looked like this was no more than a mugging, although she'd soon put a stop to that.

She jumped from the roof across the alley, managing to grab the railing of the fire escape on the next building, the rain covering the noise. To save time, she released the railing and quickly dropped past one, then two railings and grabbed the final one before she smashed into the ground, a result that would help no one. She swung herself up onto the fire escape, before climbing to stand on the railing nearest to the woman being threatened by the thugs.

From there, with a clearer view she could see that their guns looked like cheap Saturday Night Specials, costing very little but also poorly made from cheap materials. That was always good news for her, cheap materials had low melting points and she tried to refrain from burning people too badly. All this nocturnal crime fighting meant she hadn't even started her history report to be handed in next week and the last thing she needed was more bad press.

I really love this AU. I really want fic from when the trio meets up and decides to become a crime fighting team. Because they SHOULD. Also, I like the idea that Sam starts out as a villain or at least as a very morally grey character and Freddie and Carly change her for the better.

Carly controlling fire is awesome. For some reason I have no problem imagining her burning shit down.

She had to worry about not leaving burning foot prints as she walked instead.

How troublesome.

Of course the trio will be a crime fighting team. I've got it all planned out how they get together. It starts off with Carly and Sam, Freddie joins later after he runs away from home and does some small time crookery.

I have all sorts of ideas for the universe but no real plot for a story yet. Like the superheroes are actually employed by the police but that means they're only allowed to go all out on certain criminals.

And the costume designer keeps trying to put Sam in revealing outfits that she refuses to wear because of the weather (which is why I've made a point in saying that Carly can wear skimpy outfits and not be cold).

And the whole fire thing was because of Spencer. I was just thinking that his power would be to control fire, but he didn't know it so that's why all his sculptures burn. Then I realised if the powers are genetic, Carly's should be similar.

Plus, fire is actually interesting compared to something like flight, which I had considered.

Sorry, I'm quite excited about this.

Don't be sorry it sounds awesome!

Also, I love hearing more details and plotty bits and behind the scenes thought process stuff.

Write moooooar!

I'm never sure how much people actually want to know this stuff. And I should probably be writing it rather than talking about it. Problem is I keep coming up with the big climactic scenes but have no idea where to start the plot from.

Like Nevel threatening a bus of schoolchildren and coercing Carly to kiss him but she melts his lips together when she does.
