So I've been doing seat of of the pants for 85k words now. And I'm at the point where I need to explain why my MC is the way she is, but I don't know the answer. lol It's a sci fi that takes place on Earth and a fictional planet called Sonella (but it's a lot like Earth). There's a piece of technology the aliens invented called the chronoflex. It allows the user to basically turn into particles and travel at lightning fast speeds. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of people (human and alien alike) that use this piece of technology, and so far, my MC is the only one who uses it differently than everyone else. To specify: 1. When most people travel, they see blackness. They can't steer at all. They just set a destination and the chronoflex takes them there. MC can see static, like snow on a TV, and outlines of shapes around her. She can also move freely. 2. Everyone else who uses it needs coordinates to be able to travel. She can simply picture a place she's been or a person she knows and travel directly to them. 3. She can pass through walls, while no one else can. 4. She's also strong enough to take more than one person with her by feeding on her connection to them, while everyone else can only take one person at a time. Now... I can't decide how I want to handle this. Other than her being part alien (which I'm totally okay with), I can't think of another reason why she'd be able to manipulate the chronoflex in ways no one else can. Her dad isn't in the picture, so I'm okay making him an alien. But is he a different alien than the ones on Sonella? Maybe his species is really good at manipulating tech. Or maybe he's the same as those on Sonella and just his familial line is better at manipulating tech. Maybe there's some secret deity I haven't considered before that gave her the ability. Maybe she's sick and something about the illness make it easier for her to access parts of her that the others can't. I literally don't know! And now it's time to write the scene, and I'm stuck. I'm half tempted to not answer the question at all and leave it for the sequel (if there ever is one). But I have a feeling that would piss the reader off. Any ideas? And again, it's sci fi, so anything goes! Don't hold back!
