It's not snot.

Shut up and eat you kids.

Noah the social butterfly.

First off, Neorice, I would not suggest advocating for the kids to eat each other.
Second off, @Taran Alvein @Some Guy,
Kimberly can make WAY too much slime at once for it to have too much detriment to him to make any, example being the scene where he just flooded the entire illusion with slime when he couldn’t see the tied up kids.

The fact that Noah probably fully knows what everyone's names are (1067 and 1224 indicate that he has no problem remembering people's names at least) but just doesn't bother to call people by name is just another one of those wird social quirks Noah has... like talking to himself, for example. He does that a lot, the freaky little weirdo.

Damn, Noah, at this point you’re just being an asshole.

24107: SilentWrangler - Thursday, December 24 2020 - 6:52 AM

@noname Noah remembers names all right... But not the faces they go with. I'm sure he can name every kid's power, which group they were in etc, but wouldn't be able to link names with people to save his life.

There's a joke to be made about the name Fuuka and a certain other word beginning with F, but I won't be the one to make it.

24109: Taran Alvein - Thursday, December 24 2020 - 9:07 AM

@A Loquacious Theorizer: Well, I didn't mean that he suffers from using his power, just that maybe eating a lot allows him to generate more slime than if he were hungry, or that perhaps there's a limit to how much he can make, and eating allows him to replenish it.

Of course, it is magic, so maybe how much he eats is unrelated, but then again, maybe it's matter conversion magic, rather than matter conjuration. Those are just some of the things I'm considering about his power.

Noah has prosopagnosia confirmed for the umpteenth time

24111: Trisection - Thursday, December 24 2020 - 12:52 PM

Two things I'm wondering today, based on lovely user comments.

-Could Noah have some form of disability akin to prosopagnosia--the inability to recognize faces? as @Noname pointed out, he recognizes names, but finds other aspects hard to remember. Maybe he has an easier time identifying with the idea of people than their, uh... physical traits.

Second is @Taran's point about Kimberly converting calories to magic. It's a theory that'd put him in the same territory as Choji from Naruto and Lift from the Stormlight Archives, among other (variably) cool characters. Also explain why he's so food obsessed an maintains such a lean figure!

Third note, I wonder what properties his slime would have in cooking. A good replacement for egg whites? Slime souffle, anyone?

24112: A Loquacious Theorizer - Thursday, December 24 2020 - 3:23 PM

@taran alvein and @trisection, Kimberly has confirmed that the slime is edible, though they don’t know if it has any nutrition.
If their power is fueled by eating, and their slime is edible, then it seems like their power is self sustaining. Since their slime is, well, slime, it could contain water, which Kimberly could use to stay hydrated as well.
From what we have seen, Kimberly very well may be the most defensively potent character in the series, and the potential versatility has been hinted upon, with their slime being able to harden and become opaque, being manipulable, and possibly more. Currently the only thing stopping them from being extremely strong is practice, both with their power and with Spirit.
According to how in https://neorice.com/hoh_noah_625 Kimberly does not gasp for air after releasing themselves, they either can breathe through their slime or do not need air, which means they can theoretically live through anything that can’t crack their shell, as Fuuka has been shown as unable to do.

24113: A Loquacious Theorizer - Thursday, December 24 2020 - 4:17 PM

One thing I noted: so, there’s foreshadowing about Noah never giving Ciel a physical form, and in https://neorice.com/hoh_noah_631 Ciel says they cannot eat people because they do not have a physical form...

24114: someone - Friday, December 25 2020 - 12:00 AM

Noah remembers her names; it's how not to be a jerk that he can't quite commit to memory.

24141: Saiko - Sunday, December 27 2020 - 12:33 PM

This has already been discussed some years prior. Noah certainly has symptoms of at least a mild prosopagnosia. As a fellow sufferer, I also recognise the typical reactions to this disability - both in the Noah's world and in the comments...
