Sub-Templates

Dragon

Glint
https://glowfic.com/templates/2383
Glint is, as a sub-template, usually raised without parents in a society with social room for someone eccentric or 'crazy,' who willingly takes on responsibilities to protect others and then grows into her role - especially as a protector of the odd and insane. Glint has temporal clusters but one character tends to go through them in sequence; unlike other sub-templates, Glints don't split into separate character accounts, and then tend to grow more slowly through their character arc. The main temporal clusters are 'Glint' and 'Sheogorath.'

Template: δ Fate ~ Anakin

Attractors are mostly as normal for Fate template (https://glowfic.com/templates/1215).

Standard Arc and Clusters ↴
Generally starts out seriously trying to be good, pro-social, or what someone they care about might want them to be. This is the Early cluster.

They then proceed to have a meltdown or reach a breaking point, and generally proceed to go for violent conquest. This is the Warlord cluster.

They eventually hit rock bottom and are redeemed by someone they care deeply for, deciding to retire - and then coming out of retirement because fuck, the world needs fixing, doesn't it. This is the Hero cluster.

Sometimes something weird happens to the Hero or Warlord clusters, resulting in a version without any memory of being either. This can be a clone, or a Fate with amnesia. This is the Mirror cluster.

There's odder Anakin's, sometimes. Usually older, sometimes wiser, always more aware. These are the Tapestry-Burners, who see their world for what it is and strive to change it, whatever way they see fit. Tapestry-Burners almost always have meta-knowledge, but some don't.

Template: δ Fate ~ Dragon

A subtemplate of the main Fate template: https://www.glowfic.com/templates/1215

Dragons are very unusual for Fates. Brisingr is a founding/ central member. Dragons are nonhuman and act it, or at least have an intensely strange psyche generally unlike most humans. They struggle to take most concerns seriously, often pursuing short term hedonism. They can weave long term plots, but it can be hard to tell they're doing this, because they'll get distracted so often.

Dragons usually have feline-esque body language. They like nice stuff and have a *very* strong tendency to hoard interesting things. Their behaviors and mentality often parse as immature to humans.

Template: δ Fate ~ Glint-Sheogorath

description pending

Template: δ Fate ~ Hisame

A subtemplate of the main Fate template. Has two main clusters, Heaven and Hell, which usually come in pairs in a setting/ world (though not always in the same continuity). Heaven are energetic and cheerful and murderous. Hell clusters are intensely traumatized and often the bad end version of a Heaven alt.

The Abyss cluster also exists. Abyss clusters are mirrored Hisame's and very, very weird.

Some attractor overlap with main template (https://glowfic.com/templates/1215).

Template: θ - Lily Palpatine

Official Best Mom. (Or, what if we gave The Power Of Love to Palpatine.)

This is the broader template, and does actually include some Palpatine track characters.

Tracks and Stations
Lily does clustering a bit oddly compared to other heartsbloods. They currently have two tracks, Lily and Palpatine. Usually, a baby Lily Palpatine will move toward one track or another fairly early in childhood. The tracks have the same stations, roughly, but diverge over time, and it gets harder and harder for a character to change tracks - until, when they reach the Old station, there's no going back.

Baby Station
Baby station Lily Palpatines have a world of possibilities before them. They're born very strong in dark-coded magic if that's possible. They always stand out even as infants though, one way or another, and they often have biological parents who fear them and single them out for abuse. They're pre-track and have the highest flexibility of all the stations. This station always ends before puberty, sometimes before they're past the point of childhood amnesia.

Young Station
Young Lilies and Young Palpatines have taken the first step along their tracks. This station usually starts in early childhood, and always starts before puberty, and usually ends by the end of puberty. Lily Palpatines in societies with a relatively early coming of age can exit this station fairly early, and late comings of age can delay exiting this station.

Both tracks tend to have few or no childhood friends. Lily track will usually have some friendly acquaintances, though, and any siblings will be supportive. Palpatine track tends to have no friends and unsupportive siblings.

Their parenting situation usually determines their track, though non-parental authority figures can nudge them towards the edge of a track. Abusive parents fairly consistently produce Palpatines; good parents fairly consistently produce Lilies. Absent and incompetent parents produce children somewhere in the middle, though sans external intervention they tend to veer towards Palpatine.

They're not very firmed in their path at this point. Both start out prone to petty crimes, especially compulsive theft, with very low impulse control and poor emotional regulation. They get into fights, and might get into legal trouble. Palpatine track are more likely to have consequences of their actions erased by wealthy parents, and any consequences that get through are often excessive. Lily track are more likely to be faced with actual, proportionate consequences.

Lily develops a sense of other respecting people's internal state in slow fits and starts over this period. Palpatine develops the same ability to figure out internal states, but quickly learns that its main purpose is protecting themselves from a world they see as hostile and chaotic.

This station progresses to Apprentice around the point where they're passing into adulthood.


Template: θ - Lily Palpatine ~ Mirrors

Weird things happen, sometimes.

ANL mirrors are grouped into character accounts by alliance; two sharing the same one doesn't imply they're the same person.

Template: θ - Lily Palpatine ~ Old Palpatine

Official Worst Dad.

Lilies who've gone too far down the Palpatine track to ever turn around. Mostly very, very old.
