On an unrelated note, I started thinking about an ability someone on magic-side could use. I thought about it before, but put it aside for a later date. Now that I'm far ahead of my schedule, I reopened the idea and want to run it by you guys to see what you think.

Basically, the idea I have is based on something called threefold truth. Threefold truth implies that all things are void, all things are temporary, and all things are in a middle state between the two. My interpretation of this, if used as a spell, can pretty much render something 'void' and erase that voided area out of existence. I figured that since magic mainly follows certain guidelines and conditions, the process of this particular spell would be for the mage to dictate whatever he's applied this spell to is in a state of 'temporary' existence and the state of 'void' existence.

I know that limitations for this are a definite necessity; all I'm looking for at the moment is people's opinions on if this would be feasible enough to utilize for a powerful mage of some sort or if it would be just too damn overpowered an ability; regardless of whatever limitations that are thought up.
It depends what exactly you can turn to void. Look at Misogi Kumagawa from Medaka Box. He has a very similar ability that even extends to qualities like "being dead".

Other examples are the stands Cream, The Hand or Golden Experience Requiem from Jojo Bizarre Adventure, I think. Especially The Hand should cover the range of ability you want. Its ability allows the user to erase the space between things, reducing the distance to his opponent or shortening things.

I think a way to apply that spell is to use representations of each truth with something. Then physically shifting the target to the desired truth via the representations. Though I have no idea how to do this since I have no idea what this threefold truth is.

Wow, great responses yall.

This is starting to make we want to make this guy and input him into the story; with all these ideas coming in I may just do that. But I need more time to prepare, research to do, and a lot of calculated character structure to do.

None the less, thanks guys for giving me this info; it helps.

And done. Have some doubts about this chapter, but I needed to throw in a breather.

As for me, I popped up to let people know that I finally managed to get my hands on a tablet and Bluetooth keyboard. That means I can work on my stuff during business trips and productivity on my end should increase. With luck and a good wind at my back, the six-month wait between chapter updates should be a thing of the past.
Good news are good news. And well. If not for my parents being in the same room, I would have jumped around in joy.

I like it. And I somehow thought of IB reading it. Why, I wonder?

As for restrictions... Time, concentration and... maybe troubles with erasing living/non-living beings (take your pick)?

I think it's because it works in the same manner as the Nullify and Negate factors of the IB. If a reason is required for a mage to have this ability, one could say they did it as a means to imitate the Imagine Breaker. Given, the mage would need to know of IB's existence, so that right there would tell you that the mage would not be your run-of-the-mill magician but someone with actual authority and influence.

All three of these things are possibilities, but for the time being I'm just looking for input to see if people think its a good idea to pursue or not. Once I've done the groundwork for the spell itself, I'll come back to restrictions and limitations. But, as stated before, the idea's expressed are appreciated and will be put into account once I get to that point.

Good chapter, sad to read Index and Accelerator won't be staying together though.

Pardon my french here, but FUCK YEAH CHAPTER 12 IS NOW DONE!!!!

I finished WAY before my usual due-date and I'm so ahead of schedule that I'm at a loss at what to do. Seriously, I feel like such a boss right now it hurts!

Sorry, but I just had to get that off my chest.

Proof reading, adding authors notes, and debating on whether or not I should post it so soon or postpone it until Sunday.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Well...

I have an interesting comment to make...

At the bottom, you said other people complained about last chapter...

You said that action was your forte...

I'll stop with the pointless dramatics

That was good as always . Can't wait to see the conclusion of Mugino's fight, and hopefully see Touma be badass.

Are you planning on getting into the canon events at any point (Index arc, sisters arc, etc)?

Thank you, I'm glad the chapter was to you're liking.

Same goes to you in regards to you liking the chapter. While I'm still on the fence in regards to how I'm going to pull that fight off, I'm looking forward to it myself really. In regards to Touma showing up with his usual BAMF-mode turned up to max....you'll just need to wait and see.

Of course, I'm especially looking forward to entering the Sister arc. since, lets face it, having Mugino one minute fighting Mikoto then the next minute watching Touma's fight with Accelerator with that same girl right beside her. Yeah, cue drama, but I'm sure the two of them will shut up at watch as Touma enter's his Big-Damn-Hero mode and starts kicking the crap out of Accel.

I try, and I don't let the negative responses bother me all that much.

So, after now having access to a lot of spare time now that the ACWOD update was made, I've made some headway on that Threefold Truth idea that I mentioned before. I'm mainly in the explanation behind how it works at the moment, but if anyone's interested I'm willing to post it to see what you all think of what I have thus far.

And Touma's Busy Day Chapter 3 is now out.

@SmokinFerret: Sure, I'd love to see it.

Okay, here's what I have thus far; just keep in mind that it's not completely done yet.

Spoiler for Threefold Truth:
