  • Awesome stunts/ fight scenes/ scenes for Solar power/ Excellence?

    I'm writing a crossover fanfic with the Laundry Files (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Laundry_Files) And what I'm wondering is how I'm going to showcase Solar excellence. To the Laundry, and to the modern world. Any suggestions?

    A/N: Only one solar is present.

    Not really familiar with the series beyond a lookup on tvtropes page, but I'll give it a shot. So with just excellencies you're dealing with a Solar focusing and being being able to pull off greater tricks. This could range from things like being able to quickly figure out the theorems and details needed for a spell or ritual to the absurd like an integrity excellency enabling the solar to force their way through absurdly powerful glamours like those weird rapture moth things apparently had.

    Now other charm effects would work closer to an exalted modern sort of deal. Archery style charms being applied to guns for example like being able to summon the gun from a range or create bullets from essence.* Resistance charms enabling a person to shrug off lethal injuries, heck a solar with a few instances of ox-body would probably take a bit not to be mistaken for a vampire or something just due to being able to survive things that really should be lethal.


    *Not counting the fun of being able to use righteous devil charms if the MA style was somehow deemed to exist, be figured out, and such.

      Well, its basically an MIB setting. More grimdark.

      Let's say that our dear protagonist is surrounded. He's holding off an army of cultists, demons, ghosts, and worse to let his friends evacuate. The children they are sent to rescue are long dead. He's injured. His gun has 1 bullet left. And he stands his ground. And then, Exaltation.

      What should the first few seconds be like? And then, the next few hours?

          In a few seconds the character will notice that is he is not just what he thought he was and his anima will flare up as well as his caste mark showing up
          Next he might instinctively shoot his gun a few times and always have some ammunition left
          His essence fever will also flare up and his fingers are twitching to use more of this awesome power that he didnt know and is now at his fingertips
          he might get cocky, trying a frontal assault against better knowledge and shrug off or evade bullets and attacks that would normally be lethal and unavoidable and beatuing up stronger looking guys with bare hands

          well, something among the lines

            The entire tunnel chase in CPT America civil war is an excellent display of superhuman athletics, reflexes and driving in a mad clusterfuck.

            All of John Wick too.

            Food Wars is very "exalted culinary".
