*waves* Hello, I'm new to this site, mildly recommended to come here looking for help in my "bizarre" thinking's.
for the past few weeks, I've been racking my brain with an "expansion theory of abilities" for my characters in my proto-novel called String Theory. the basis of my story is Genetics, and how everything is connected to something. (think about something long enough and you'll figure out how it works)
in previous stories, I've had characters whom mastered their elements and became Gods. due to my Grandmothers' passing last month, I've been thinking about changing these Gods to Pillars (yes, they are still people) I only have four so far and they are of Earth, Fire, Water, and Knowledge. the "expansion theory" now comes into play as the Pillar of Earth not only controls earth materials like sand, rocks, and metal, but can also create or destroy planets. (some of you might be thinking "big whoop", but that's because you're only seeing this portion of the "string" - pun to my title *laughs*)
I'm currently working on the other expansions of Fire and Water. So I guess I'm asking two things: 1 - what do you guys think of this idea? and 2 - can you help me in thinking of three other Pillars I could add?
(in one article I found online it said that there was a Tree of Life that was broken into Seven Pillars; guiding you on how to live your life)
