 Yeah, I guess the 'reality challenged' bit is sort of like the word 'fanboy/girl'. It's only really a bad thing, when the person-in-question's 'reality-challenged' nature leads to unacceptable results.

Kick-butt, when it leads to NB and other awesome RPs.

Laughable, when it leads to accidentally-cruddy superpowers, which were originally intended to be taken seriously.

Ah, the to-be-taken-seriously powers.
Bow before your unimaginably powerful overlord!

Wait a minute, I'm currently too busy holding a cork in mid air for petty groveling.

Any chance we can get a nibble at some of the more humorous denials, anytime soon, Mods?  Wulf's submissions have efficaciously whetted my palate for the more "reality challenged" submissions for the SPL site.
On the subject, this happened...

Interesting, but a horrendous misinterpretation of the autistic mind's capabilities. I think it'd give people the wrong image about autistic individuals, who are not portrayed well as it is.

Re: DENIED!

I appreciate your insight.  I must confess that I don't know enough about autism to offer an opinion here.  Thanks for sharing your perspective.

What would you change about this submission (or would you delete it wholly) to reflect a more accurate representation?

I would likely make it a less potent ability (such as mention an improved, but not photographic memory and probably remove psychic powers) and mention that it is without the normal side effects.

Well, I denied my first power.

It was a power called "Black Power" and it gave you the "enhanced abilities of a black person". One of the cons indicated a reduction in intelligence. I thought it could be considered more than slightly racist, but I promised to bring up the issue here and see what people thought of it. I am curious to hear of the opinions of others, particularly Shadowulf1 and Narrator, as they are on the receiving end of this type of treatment.

You did the right thing.
Even if it would be positive racism then it could still be taken offensive.

Good to hear others see it the same way.

I agree with Drow.  Seems like a no-brainer to file that under DENIED.

........i'm just wondering what kind of person would even consider that a cognizant thought to be turned into a power??
Sonic Mania? Project Sonic 2017?
Time to get out the fanfiction again....

 It was certainly denied with good reason.

Sad part is, I can't even really get angry, though.

It was some poor, ignorant oaf's attempt at flattery, I think. Or worse yet, a cry for attention. *sigh* A pity, really.

Thing is, if rewritten to a sufficient extent, the power could be turned into a perfectly legitimate power, perhaps a series. It could operate on a given races' stereotypical traits, with amplification. This guy was just an idiot who ruined the concept.

Actually, I might make a power like that; you gain abilities based on the stereotypes applied to one's ethnic group or country of origin. The country of origin stereotype seems interesting.

 I might actually be interested in a series like that, to be honest. Minus the negative stereotypes added on.
