Oh Here It Goes Here It Goes Again

"... the ability to alter people's appearances." It's right there. :D --NellaBishop 04:05, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Oh, didn't notice the vocal chords thing. That's what happens when I read it at 4 AM. :| --NellaBishop 15:17, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
    • The tracker: "Adaptive Appearance Manifestation." --Riddler 15:30, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
      • The manifestation part is in small print on the right side. It says "Appearance alteration" in big print where the ability name normally goes.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:37, 27 May 2008 (EDT)


Though neither is incorrect, the preferred spelling is "cords", not "chords". We should probably try to be consistent in our spelling. See Wikipedia:Vocal cords#Spelling. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:29, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

  • I always thought everyone spelled it "vocal cords". A cord is like a string... a chord is a musical note. I never knew there was ever any ambiguity until I read the Wikipedia article. (Admin 23:25, 27 May 2008 (EDT))
    • Same here. I thought it was a mistake when I read it in the GN, and so I went to look it up. Guess I learned something new! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:29, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
      • Having had to read a bunch of works by British authors, I've seen it used both ways. I do prefer the Americanized "cord", though.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:32, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Offensive capabilities

Now that we know Connie is Evs (kind of), I'm starting to think Jamie Wu's death was by an aggressive, as yet unseen, capability of Connie's ability. Therequiembellishere 19:30, 4 September 2008 (EDT)
