what's the hack? @Lakis
The inequity bringing the main character into the story is the arrest of her family. She comes to a city where she finds out her "kind" are by nature the enemy. But they don't know she's "that kind," yet. She has to hide that bit.
The IC is a leader in that city who needs to use her abilities for his own infirmity issues, but blackmails her to secrecy. Her abilities help him to be well but cause trouble for others.
I initially had:
IC: Physics (doing things to promote the OS)
RS: Universe (blackmail situation)
MC: Psychology (dealing with this world)
OS: Mind (fixed attitude, everyone suspicious of others)
With this, the premise worked and the signposts/gists fit what was going on.
Jim suggested I rethink those categories.
It turned into...
OS: Physics (doing, hunting for certain people)
MC: Universe (security, being safe)
IC: Mind (confidence, on the brink because of health)
RS: Psychology (ability/trusting each other)
So from what I understand here, the cause of their problems are these realms, but not necessarily the actual actions they do. Like the IC in some scene can do an OS event (like hunt) all the while being worried by the confidence-breaker issue. And the MC's involvement with the RS may lead her along a course that affects how she's involved in the OS.
And the MC can do something action or have some thought irrelative of the other domains, as long as its cause is security along the lines the gist sent her. Right?
Is that what it means? The under-current of life, passing out their cards from the deck, they've got to make do with their hand.
They, OS, have issues caused by hunting which colors other parts of their Physics world.
I, MC, have issues caused by security which will color other parts of my Universe world.
You, IC, have issues caused by confidence which will color other parts of your Mind world.
We, RS, have issues caused by trust which colors other parts of our Psychology world.
