    i did once have to make a four-posts-long blog for a communications in the sciences class though

    anyway i'm making a playlist of songs that give me Steamworld!Fen vibes, and also considering making a BEL/S playlist but so far i have only found two songs that make me go "BEl/S song!"

    my mother's parrot has learnt to make ruru noises

    it's like living in a house with a flying feathered toddler that's also a random noise generator
    and now Owl Noises are a possible RNG result

    i keep losing this thread

    anyway i had thoughts about undertale and human magic

    basically; humans 'catch' magic from monsters (or other inherently magic-based beings like Flowey and spirits), which is fastest if they have strong positive bonds/feelings about monsters, but it also works just being in the general area for a while; a few days of cohabitation with a monster will inevitably result in the ability to at least use an inventory, summon and put away your soul at will, and form parties with people. in very strongly magical areas, even just a few seconds of being near a monster you are aware of and don't hate can work with more magically inclined people-and of course there's deliberate inductions, where a monster or other inherently magic-based being actively summons your soul in a very high-magic area.

    they are then first-order mages. they can spread magic to other humans via the same process; it's generally a little slower though
    this results in second order mages, which are on average slightly less powerful than first order mages
    notably, living with or having strong positive feelings about a monster who they have been physically near or (better yet) touched can make second or up order mages into first order mages

    second order mages can spread magic to third order mages. this has a chance to just...not work. some people just cannot get magic from a second-order magic user, but can from a first order magic user or a 'zeroth order mage' i.e. a monster or other inherently magical being like a spirit.

    third order mages are also on average slightly less powerful than second order mages, and it takes longer for them to gain their powers.

    and finally third order mages can spread magic to people to make *fourth* order mages, who are on average the weakest mages who took the longest to gain their powers. it can take several *weeks* for a fourth-order mage to develop their inventory fully, and potentially *years* to finish developing magic-channeling structures in their soul.

    in other words, even without training or anything, even with powers of kinds that *cannot* grow stronger from training, a fourth-order mage can be growing in power and control for *years*, while a first-order will have their maximum base power and maximum base control in a few weeks.

    of course this'd play merry hell with an undertale/animorphs crossover. it'd take, what, a month for every host on earth to be magically activated once even a single first-order mage host exists? and the yeerks would probably be carriers, able to 'catch' and 'spread' magic without necessarily experiencing any changes themselves...and magic *is* controlled via the soul.
    not the brain.
    so the host would have total control over their magic, akin to it being controlled by a separate ganglion...

    more notes about human magic: in the olden days, back before monsters were sealed away, humans were only considered mages if they could do semi-freeform magic.

    like, not just inventories, or SAVEs/LOADs, or passive effects like healing way faster than normal or whatever. something voluntany that not everyone had and wasn't limited to one person.

    so like

    frisk would not count as a mage...until alphys gave them the ability to shoot bullets from their soul. technological assistance doesn't make a mage stop being a mage; that's what magic staves etc are/were for! they'd count as an extremely low power mage though

    then again

    it's day one, maybe two, of being magically activated

    that's very fast power gain-from nothing to the ability to fire bullets in 24 hours or less

    all this thinking about undertale magic was actually due to thinking about undertale/animorphs crossover due to
