I’ve been watching a lot of superhero stuff and I’m in love with a trope.
So the whumpee is a character with electricity/lightning powers and the whumper captures them and uses them to power something. Could be a deathray that requires loads of power or an entire facility but either way the whumpee is getting used to power something. Just the struggling to get feee as they slowly get weaker and weaker, getting woken up each time their forced to fire their power.
And don’t even get me started on after care if they’re rescued. Are they traumatized and no longer want to use their power? Are they weak for a long time after? Do they bounce back immediately only to collapsed after they know they’re no longer in danger?
Just like, lightening super hero whump. I love it.
