>What is it?
/u/ put their goggles on tight enough that they started shipping personifications of chemical elements, metals in particular. We started from the nuclear family of a Gold/Silver couple and their daughter Copper, and have been slowly expanding out. Done with a mixture involving some amounts of science and additional amounts of "this would be cute" when it comes to establishing an element or couple. The threads has recently expanded to the rest of the table and has a rough idea for most of the remaining elements but suggestions are welcome.
>>
I've never read these threads, but did you guys make Copper a doctor like I suggested months ago?

neat thread

beryllium, magnesium, and calcium could all be sisters, with their ages corresponding to their atomic numbers
strontium or barium could be their mother

also, because the transuranic elements aren't natural, maybe one of them could be a robot or cyborg?

Magnesium's a sister or cousin with Manganese to help emphasize their history. Beryllium and Calcium though could be sisters since there's not much for them currently.
I think Strontium's slated to be Calcium's future gf so no luck there, and Barium, I believe, is floating around as a college student or something that has her in her twenties. Though it wouldn't be out of place if the Alkali-earth metal column knows each other or eventually comes to know each other.

The elements from 95~118 I believe are robots with Promethium being one of their ancestors in the sense that all the "modern" robots use her code or programming language as the basis of their AI, so Pm's a robot too. Well she's like a non-evil Shodan currently but in the future of the setting she desires a better mobile platform. Technetium is currently the only cyborg in the setting and is also one of the "ancestors" to a portion of the robot cast since her robo limbs and spine helped iron out the mechanics behind the bodies the robots use.

How do you mean by "where she came from"

By the way, here's the updated table
>>
>>2075111
Unobtainium and handwavium are obvious in their source and specific vocation. More than that, unobtainium is somewhat common vernacular and it's easy to see where handwavium comes from. I was just curious if Phlebotinum mimicked either of them. Only thing that comes to mind for Phlebotinum is Phlebotomy and I don't quite think that's it. I'm most likely being nitpicky and hoping the fiction heroes had...uh tangential(?) connections to their names.
>>
>>2075117

Phlebotium is actually to go-to term for "plot fuel"; it has its roots in the Buffy series, but the actual etymology is unclear.

Four today to make up for my disappearance that no one caught. http://pastebin.com/UvS29yx7

The Scandium one from the previous thread made me wonder if it would be out of place to hope that Aluminium is actually aware and begins to take notice of all the things Scandi does and eventually falls for her little helper. While not sure whether Scandi's being benign or not, it'd eventually, probably, cause Al to start flirting in earnest with her.

The NaB one made me desire a double date fic where involving NK and Na making some quip about trying to not make K feel like a third wheel and being all shocked at being introduced to K. Making Na realize she's not the only one in the family to go after older women. Just like their future step-mum.
>>
>>2075517
Scandium would have to pinch herself to make sure she's not dreaming.
>>
>>2075517

Thanks!
of course Al would live in a penthouse; actually her dream would be to live on an enourmous Zepplin hovering over the city, with "ALUMINIUM" painted on it in gigantic letters, but she's still working on the issue of dropping on and off

>that hot hairy mess of the Zr one

Welp, sorry about that

>Scandium

I like to think that Aluminium is unconciously aware of what Sc does, and already values et more that she values her ephemerous lovers, but never thought of going further, because she got used to the non-romantic relationship they started with.
Not sure who would initiate the flirting, though, a case can be made for both.

>NaBKN double date

That's a very good idea.

>Not sure who would initiate the flirting, though, a case can be made for both
I've been wondering the same thing. When Aluminum comes to a realization that something (someone) special has been with her this whole time, either could make the initiative.
>>
>>2075696
>>2075710
I still think Aluminium would be the first one to initiate anything. Unless somehow Scandium got hammered at an event, the only other way I see Scandi taking the first step is if she's really depressed and became apathetic over what she said.
>>
>>2075715
That is a good point, she does seem more shy about it. Aluminum sweeping her off her feet would be really romantic.

Heartfelt confessions are awfully romantic too, though...
>>
>>2075724
Why not the best of both worlds? Starts off as something kind of casual that, when on the edge of breaking off, Al does something unusual and romantic that leads to having Scandi demanding if what they've been doing has been heartfelt or just another one of Aluminium's throwaway romances. Causing Scandi to make some teary eyed remark about not being able to take the heartbreak if it's the latter and then kind of convinces herself it is so, cause why would the beautiful Al want some nobody. She just dejectedly says she's resigning tomorrow to a stunned Aluminium and begins to make her exit when Aluminium comes to her senses and chases after her and sweeps Scandi into a princess carry. Leading to Aluminium saying that she'd like to try with Scandi and wants an actual romance. No more one night stands and all that.
>>
>>2075726
Though idea of it starting as something casual isn't my favorite, the rest sounds perfect. There's definitely a good compromise. Scandi's unrequited love will blossom!
>>
>>2075726

There are good ideas but I find Al's change of mind too sudden; she would need some preliminary character development.
>>
>>2075735
Definitely true.
>>
>>2075734
Casual's probably the wrong word to use there, but you know something like Scandi and Al go out frequently. Just the two of them, and Scandi has some secret hope in the back of her mind that they're actually dates and over the course of them it keeps looking like Al is getting more and more romantic with say the one before the big event had Scandi chastely kissing Aluminium or something and thus fed into Aluminium doing something different on one of their normal outings.
>>2075735
Summed up in such a manner, yeah it's a little fast but thinking about it, I view the entire time when they first start going on outings to when Scandi's big moment happens Aluminium is finding out that spending an evening with Scandi is better than a one-night stand or something. You know, subtle at first and just kind of snow balls into Scandi's big moment. The confrontation Scandi forces causes Aluminium to question if those previous outings could be viewed as romantic, and when looked through those lenses, feels her heartache as Scandi works herself up. When Scandi quietly says she'll resign causes the caught off guard Aluminium to make a snap decision about whether she actually wants a relationship with Scandi or not and it leads to them getting together. And Aluminium keeping her best assistant with an amazing ass.

You're right though, Al would need some development while it's happening. Maybe some witty quips with Beryllium kind of pushes her towards the realization a bit before hand.
>>
>>2075742
That does sound much better. Either way, it seems like there would need to be some slight change in their dynamic before the confession to facilitate it, whether it's gradual or sudden.
>>
>>2075747
Certainly, and who begins it is up to debate. Although, it could also be a combination. Like somehow Aluminium gets tickets to some event that Scandi likes and just passes them on to her. Scandi, touched by the gift, kind of just turns it around, while in the moment, and asks if Aluminium would be up for seeing it with her.

That might be too plain, it could be more of a deal where Aluminium doesn't quite grasp why Scandi likes it and they got into a conversation about it when Aluminium just hands off the tickets. Seeing the opportunity to show her boss, Scandi then asks if Aluminium would be up to seeing why she likes the event so much and during the thing they start discussing what they like leading to more outings.
>>
>>2075129
Looking at this chart, I can't help but thinking that all those unstable elements are children of a (too) happily married couple. Huge family and every night is super frantic.
>>
>>2075798
A gynoid family reunion would be interesting to see.
>>
>>2075784
In any case, that's an interesting scenario whether it less to anything important or not. Sounds like Scandi is a fan of something.

So I was reading /4ccg/ and someone there mentioned Galinstan, which apparently is an alloy of Sn, In and Ga that is liquid at normal temperature.

I think it's totally rad and we need to have it on metall/u/rgy, preferably as a character. I was thinking she could be a daughter of Gallium, maybe Gallium and Selinium, before an eventual break-up, and Tin could've been some sort of mentor/caretaker figure for reasons.
>>
>>2076653

*Gallium and Indium, duh.
>>
>>2076653
How about this: She (Galinstan) is a distant relative of Indium who is adopted by Gallium and Cadmium. Tin could be the role model she looks up to.
>>
>>2076671

I kind of wanted a direct relationship with one of these metals (well, except Sn), I also really like the idea of metals having previous relationships before meeting their actual lover.

Also, the second poll for /u/ 's Summer roster is up, and people actually proposed Metall/u/rgy, so you can vote of that. vote for CLASS-M
>>
>>2076709
Understandably. It's only that the "child from a past relationship" dynamic is already present with both Carbon and Cobalt, and here it sort of seems like the proposed relationship would be forced where one wouldn't naturally be.

The latter idea would open up a set of relationships that as far as I'm aware isn't present anywhere else yet in the setting: an adopted daughter. Plus, I think "my firefighter moms" is too good to pass up.

Class-M it is.
>>
>>2076717
So Galinstan's a fan of Tin? Also would she know she's related to In in some way or would she discover that through school?
>>
>>2076720
Mhm, "her biggest fan" and all.

Learning it at some point could lead to some interesting story ideas.

>>
>>2076731

It would, and it would potentially merge with an idea I had for a while; there has been quite a lot of talk about Thallium and her friends, but there wasn't really any characters availaible to be her friend. I'm proposing (as you've surely guessed already) Galinstan as Thallium's high school friend...but also Thulium.

I see Thulium as younger than Erbium (Erbium fitting between Thulium and Holmium), and Erbium is 19, so putting Thulium at 16 would fit in well I'd think.

Thoughts?

>>2076717

If you voted only for CLASS-M, I'd suggest to edit your vote and include Metall/u/rgy as well, as the two won't add-up.
>>
>>2076798
That's a great idea. The ages make sense too.

Don't worry, when I voted I noticed it.
>>
>>2076798
I like the idea, it sounds very cute. Though would the fire fighters be a couple by the time Galinstan is adopted or would they just be living together while skirting the edge of a relationship?
>>
>>2076913
They would have been in a steady relationship, if not married, for some time by then, I think.
>>
>>2076916
Reasonable, I do hope they're both tall.
>>
>>2076917
Sure, why not!
>>
>>2076913

Cd is 39 and Ga 37, with Galinstan being 16, that would mean they adopted her when they were in their mid twenties.

Way to hold a grudge, K (I'm exatcly the same)

http://archiveofourown.org/works/6604894/chapters/16549822

>>2078311

We did, genuinely surprised.

By the way, if Metall/u/rgy makes it to the team, who should represent it?
I personally think either C or W, if only because their appearance sets them apart and represent better their "metal-ness". Of course W would be more relevant since she's an actual metal, but on the other hand, C has much more importance as an element.

Also, simple detail, but what country should she be from: two good options are Russia (Mendeleiev), and Switzerland (IUPAC HQ).
>>
>>2078450
Damn, I have to say, Potassium is a bitch.

Regarding the team, I think that Copper would make sense, but Carbon, or maybe Iron or even Uranium could fit. Although the rational is there for W as well. I'm not good at making decisions.

Generally, Switzerland is fitting.
>>
>>2078542

The problem I have with Cu, as well as almost all the others is than she fits within the universe, in the team, among the other reps she'll just be a redhead anime girl.

Same story with Fe or U; you kind of lose the "originally a metal" angle, witch is why I like C or W, whose appearance sets them apart.
>>
>>2078545
Given the context, I think that it might be self-explanatory enough.
>>
>>2078549
But who actually know the context, though?

I'd agree if she was to be named Copper, since it's easy to equate Copper=Redhead, but the rep will be just named Metallurgy, which is more vague.

But I'll let the thread decide I'm just make a case for my personal opinion.
>>
>>2078554
Could Copper be the name on her uniform, or is that not adequately visible?

Anyway, you're right that W would make the most instant visual sense, but anybody would be fine.
>>
>>2078558

The current idea is to have CLASS-M as the name of the uniform (I really like that callback to a term that didn't survive the first thread)
>>
>>2078562
Ah, makes sense.
>>
Question remains who should represent Metallurgy; I'm personally preferring W, but I don't want to impose it.
>>
>>2078588
W is gross, I vote Boron.
>>
>>2078635

Well B sure is nice, but she's not that central to the universe.

If you don't like W then I propose C, that'll be a vote for C and B each (does that one for Cu count?)
>>
>>2078649
Yes, personally I still like Cu, though W would work too.
>>
>>2078663

Well one vote for each of C, B and Cu/W

If there's no decider I'll weight in for W I guess, but it feels like rigging
>>
>>2078690
It's all rigged.

But yeah, that's fair.
>>
>>2078697

Honestly, I'd rather not; feels like creator bias...but at the same time, polling is not really how the thread usually works; most of the time someone makes a suggestion and we all just run with it.
>>
>>2078702
I think it's fine. Out of all the options, the more sense it makes to have W represent. Either her or Cu.
>>
>>2078708

Alright, gonna wait till the poll closes and the rep is secure.

I guess I can officialise the Swiss bit, though.

Like in what way? Skin colors or something more drastic like how most or all transuranic elements are actually robots? Astatine, Cs and Fr also exhibit equivalents to how they aren't readily stable enough to exist. Though in Cs' case it's more how she's a watch maker.

From what I can tell, the characters are perfectly normal humans who just happen to have been inspired by elements. The most fantastical thing about it I think are the gynoids. I don't think I've even seen a clear explanation about how they're having children and just assume "science babies".

When I see anons in these threads going into in depth discussions about chemical properties I was expecting something more like Qwaser with some sci-fi/fantasy flair and characters' connection to an element actually plays some important role.

Problem is; for that you need a much more closely knit story and thought out universe, which is not really ideal when it's just some anons coming up with things on the fly.

Wait, Manganese slept with Carbon?
>>
>>2081257

She did, but I'm not sure how you took this from that drabble.
>>
>>2081259
I didn't mean to quote it, whoops.

That (Manganese sleeping with Carbon) seems like a kind of shitty thing to do.
>>
>>2081260

Why though? Quite a lot of women slept with Carbon, and she takes care of Steel too.
>>
>>2081262
Well, Manganese was friends with them before they broke up, and with Iron since childhood. And she's still friends with Iron...
>>
>>2081264
Yeah Class-M has a bit of overlap. You also gotta remember that Iron is still in a self-deprecating state. So while it would be news too her, it'd probably just make her angst. Also Mn's rather passionate, assertive, and well magnetic, so her ending up in Carbon's bed isn't that surprising.
>>
>>2081267
>it'd probably just make her angst
Right, that's what I meant. It's kind of insensitive, for lack of a better word.
>>
>>2081270
Surprisingly that's a pretty good descriptor for Mn. Obviously though she's kind of laerned to not be as insensitive but sometimes she still is.
>>
>>2081270

Mn wants to palliate Fe's absence by helping C and keeping her company.

Her presence in C's bed decreased as C got other lovers (like during the Mo era) but as C's lovers start to find lovers of their own, she's more or less the only one...and she doesn't want to abandon C, so she stays, hoping that Fe will return and finally resolve this mess.

In the end, Fe's departure messed up a lot of people.
>>
>>2081279
>tfw realizing FeC were probably THE power couple during their HS years
That must've been strange for poor Iron.
>>
>>2081279
Even though I don't support the behavior, I can understand how it's happening, as you say. But Zinc should get her slap on with people who are more deserving of it.

Another way of looking at it is that Fe's departure supplied the vacuum for a lot of people to mess up in.
>>
>>2081280

One of the upcoming drabbles will feature teenage Fe and C.

Also, I think Zn and Mn should've been a couple during HS, before the Fe fallout threw their relationship in the gutter
>>
>>2081281
>Another way of looking at it is that Fe's departure supplied the vacuum for a lot of people to mess up in.

It wouldn't have happened if Fe had behaving like a responsible human being.

I can't really fault Mn; it's not like she jumped C's bones right after Fe left; it was many years later.
>>
>>2081284
Still, it doesn't excuse the actions of other people.

In spite of the fact that time has passed, she's still friends with Iron. But yeah, that's a point to consider.
>>
>>2081282
Hmmm, there is already quite a lot of overlap. Maybe they were hovering around one, sort of, or not.
>>
>>2081288
>Still, it doesn't excuse the actions of other people.

But I don't find Mn's actions reprehensible.

>>2081290

In the early years there's not much overlap; the two groups of friends are FeZnMn and CH; I see ZnMn as a quiet teenage romance that got completely obliterated by the FeC fallout.
>>
>>2081307
Regardless, everyone is responsible for their own actions.

As for ZnMn, the angle that they could have had a potential relationship that never came to fruition might have some merit. In the interest of avoiding an "everyone dated everyone" situation.
>>
>>2081311

I'm certainly not one to advocate "everyone dated everyone", I just think that past relationships give more depth to characters, otherwise it would look like their romantic life starts in their thirties out of nowhere.
>>
>>2081284
>It wouldn't have happened if Fe had behaving like a responsible human being.
Why would you expect a pregnant fourteen year old to act like a responsible human? One, who may or may not, have had fossils for parents.
>>
>>2081312
I completely agree with that. Because there's a limited amount of characters, the overlap just starts to build after you pair everyone in the cast together, and then pair some of them up in the past too. You know?
>>
>>2081313
>pregnant fourteen year old

Sixteen, and I fully expect an adult who's 33 to try and fix their mess...I'd expect it ten years earlier actually.

>>2081314

Yeah, but overlap is not necessarily a bad thing if it make sense and is not heavy-handed.
>>
>>2081316
Right sixteen. Still the whole situation kind of stunted her emotional growth. Most likely. Also here I was gonna suggest Zn and Mg getting together to kind of better cover overlap when I remember Mg's way younger than Mn for some reason.
>>
>>2081316
I guess so, but like I said, it's a fine line before things become convoluted.

As for Fe, that's easier said than done.
>>
>>2081317

Zn and Mg?

>>2081318
>As for Fe, that's easier said than done.

The longer it drags, the less excusable Fe becomes. It wouldn't be so bad if there was't Steel in the equation.

FeC resolution fic when?
>>
>>2081337
Yeah instead of ZnMn, I was gonna suggest ZnMg. It'd expand Mg and wouldn't create as big of an overlap though that was before I realized the gap between Mg and Mn.

Of course, ZnMn being a couple might have to do with science which would probably trump ZnMg.

As for your spoilers, never :^)
The big problem with that is, how would Iron get the backbone for it? I like to think she gets an external push through running into some confident silver hair lass doing a part time job at some place Iron regularly visits. Leading to them kind of talking to each other because Iron's a regular and her, Iron, realizing she's a good person and ends up learning more. Leads to becoming friends in some manner and then her(Fe) realizing the girl is Steel. the mention of only having a mom should've tipped her off. Thus seeing the consequence of her actions leads to her finally getting her act together while realizing that it may be too late to be an actual mother for her, but maybe she could be a good, no best friend. Leading to her, Iron, trying to be someone young girls could look up to.
>>
>>2081344
>It'd expand Mg

Mg already has her background pre-Be romance, though

>Of course, ZnMn being a couple might have to do with science

It does, ZnMn is used for batteries

>FeC

While it's a good idea, I have two niggles with it: First I don't see Fe the workaholic casually hanging around teenage girls. Second it's established that Fe supports Steel from the shadows, so it would be very unlikely that she doesn't know what Steel looks like.

If I were to write it, it would be Zn finally going past her breaking point since it now affects Cu as well, but flonium is already writing the FeC stuff.
>>
>>2081346
>ZnMn is used for batteries
Well that settles it then. Though I'm curious what Mg's background pre-Be is. Outside of working under Aluminium and being like a less social Mn from what I can remember was written about her.

>FeC
Yeah getting Iron to hang around a place where teenage girls are, is a bit of a stretch considering she probably doesn't like public places. As for supporting from the shadows, I didn't think that was agreed upon. I know it was suggested but I figured it just was kind of left at the wayside.

If it is established that Fe supports Steel from the shadows, I could see that being a hook for how they meet. Outside of Zn finally having enough. Maybe something about Steel being curious about her anonymous support and begins to trace it back/track it down and it leads to some Iron using a childish nickname or something to kind of poorly disguise who it is. Poorly as in, if Steel brought the name to Carbon, she'd be able to immediately recognize it.
>>
>>2081349
>Though I'm curious what Mg's background pre-Be is.

She used to date B.

>>FeC
>As for supporting from the shadows, I didn't think that was agreed upon.

It made it to her profile.

For Steel I think she actually know her mother is Fe, it's highly unlikely, given that she's surrounded by people who know Fe, that she wouldn't at least know that. Besides that, I think it would be significant if it was Fe who went to see C and Steel, because she's the one who really needs character development at this point.
>>
>>2081353
>It made it to her profile.
So it did, though it seems that she's never been successful. That's probably why I didn't remember it. I could definitely see Steel knowing but not realizing, if that makes sense, Iron's contribution to her life and then it just clicked in her head one day. That said, this makes me wonder if Iron could be considered a recluse as well as a workaholic.
>>
>>2081366
>That said, this makes me wonder if Iron could be considered a recluse as well as a workaholic.

Maybe not actively recluse; but when all you do is work, eat and (sometimes) sleep, you're not really socializing either.
>>
>>2081444
So would there be a recent picture of Iron or would it be decades old?
>>2081353
If Fe making the first move with C is what's desired, why not have it business related? C gets hired by either Ferric or the person their brokering a deal with and it causes them to run into each other in a professional setting. One where Fe can safely sink into super work mode should she feel flustered. If C is hired by Ferric, then maybe the finer details have to directly involved Iron and Iron has to choose a lesser evil. Aka being slightly stoic with her estranged ex for her business to prosper some more.

Man this has got me wondering how C would feel about industry leader Iron.
>>
>>2081451
>So would there be a recent picture of Iron or would it be decades old?

C might only have decade old photos, but I'm sure Mn would have smuggled more recent ones to Steel.

>FeC

My problem with that is Fe would've already shielded herself from working directly with C, and would've sent Ni in her place.

The fact that it has been 17 years requires an explanation about why it has been this long, and at this point, I can't anything other than "Fe went out of her way to avoid C".
>>
>>2081454
>The fact that it has been 17 years requires an explanation about why it has been this long, and at this point, I can't anything other than "Fe went out of her way to avoid C".
You're right that is the toughest one outside of her own flaws as a human preventing it. Perhaps she was out of the country for a good portion of the decade? First studying abroad, or running away either works, and then setting up supply connections for her eventual megacorp and then actual international contracts for the various things the megacorp does.
>>
>>2081467

But that still doesn't explain why she isn't contacting C right now.
>>
>>2081472
Actually running her megacorp causes her to get caught up in her work and by the time she thinks about contacting, it's been 72 hours without sleep and she hasn't eaten anything for the past twelve hours. That specifically is where I figure her workaholic attitude becomes a hindrance for getting back together with C.

I can also see the one time where she goes along with her sleep-deprived mind she ends up falling asleep as soon as she hears C's voice.
>>
However Fe reconnects with her family, it should be a deliberate choice on her part and a facet of her emotional development.
>>
>>2081479

But the "she 's just tired" doesn't really hold in a long period of time.

I don't think we need to reinvent the wheel of Fe's emotional state; it has been established that she just deal with stuff by running away, so let's just stick with it.
>>
>>2081490
That's fair, though the idea of her even thinking on the topic while she's sleep-deprived could open up some interesting things.

All this Iron talk makes me wonder if Carbon ever thinks about her during an odd hour in the night when she can't sleep. Or at all, that isn't slightly spiteful or apathetic.
>>
>>2081492
>That's fair, though the idea of her even thinking on the topic while she's sleep-deprived could open up some interesting things.

She would likely think about C and Steel during every single moment of her life; conscious or unconscious.

>All this Iron talk makes me wonder if Carbon ever thinks about her during an odd hour in the night when she can't sleep.

I'm sure she does, I'd even say that it's because she think Fe that she can't sleep.
>>
>>2081497
>she think Fe that she can't sleep.
That's kind of sweet, if it involves some slightly positive things.

Hell why doesn't Kb's little two shot about Iron's little meltdown be the catalyst for her change. Everyone seems to agree upon Fe indirectly troubling Cu is the straw that breaks Zn's back. What if it bothered Fe as well. Cause really, it was super unprofessional and the way everyone, sans Zn, responded made it seem like it was the first time Iron had such a meltdown.
>>

I think so too, but I don't know what flonium has for FeC.

Given what we know, I wonder how we can define the relationship between K and Mn using this:

>>2082660
That seems benign.
>>
>>2082737

It doesn't need to be confrontational, in fact I imagined that Mn and K would actually get along.

But given Mn's role in Alkali and the fact that she'll be K's future stepmom; their relationship is quite significant.

>>2082753
That's a relief.

There's also this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_manganate

>>
>>2082819
Hopefully she would herself have calmed down by that point too.
>>
>>2082819

I don't really want to involve Mn with the family drama, part of it because Li isn't one to involve non-family members in it, and second because the LiK resolution would be more interesting with minimal exterior intervention.
>>
>>2082851
That would make the most sense, yes.

Yeah, before; because Ar would already be known as an archaeologist before finding Ori.
