I am Alicia Dimetrescu, better known to my subjects as Lady Dimetrescu, a reality warper with dreams of world conquest. As I have proven to you that my claims of godhood are perfectly justified, I am now entitled to use my powers for good by conquering planet Earth and becoming ruler of the human race. In solid matter, the atoms of molecules are arranged in an ordered pattern that is repeated throughout the entire object. Reality warpers can alter the physical structure of objects on a sub-atomic level. This allows them to change the size, shape, and properties of matter to suit their own purposes. Warping works by constructing a reality bubble around the object, containing it in a temporarily created space subject to the individuals own physics. The object can then be broken down into its basic structures of atoms and rearranged into different positions to form new objects with new qualities. This allows the person to create anything they can think of and are only limited by their imagination, such as creating literal tanks from kitchen knives, or a Apple MacBook from a pencil. A warper can even manipulate the atoms within empty space around them, creating things out of the air from nothing. However, the latter is more difficult and comes with restrictions.
Since I have mastery over atoms in solid form, It should be possible for me to control atoms that are in other states, such as gas, liquids, or even out of thin air. By taking control over the atoms in the air, I should be able to compress them into solid form, forming the crystalline structures that make up solid matter. This would allow me to make objects seemingly out of nothing. However, matter created spontaneously from no original material is not permanent, as the structures that make them up are unstable. These structures fall apart at the removal of the reality bubble, with the item disintegrating immediately. To keep the object from breaking down, a warper must maintain the bubble placed around it. This drains the warper as it requires them to continuously expend power to keep the object stable. This drain on power increases with time, making it harder to maintain until the warper must ends the spell. This is a significant problem because it limits the capabilities of the user. The individual is not creating something out of nothing, as atoms in the air are just as viable as any other form on the planet. The person is simply transferring them from one state to another, similar to energy, which never truly dissipates but simply changes.
How can this be the case?
