Computer-tans are some of the most powerful humans, with the OS-tans at the very top, pretty much all humans have magic. ......
Quote from: Bella on May 04, 2014, 01:09:31 pmInteresting. In my story universe (and Stew's - insofar as I can tell) humans are pretty much normal. In fact, our timeline of events seems about the same as that of the real world; the only difference is the inclusion of personified computers. Nej's seems to run in the same vein, although - if memory serves right - there are indeed a few humans who can manipulate OS-tan type magic. Although they're supposed to be vanishingly rare, highly skilled and by no means the norm (think, like, top-level computer hackers).
Quote from: Bella on May 04, 2014, 01:09:31 pmAlthough I've touched on the nature of computer-tans in my stories, for the most part I favor Stew's interpretation; that computer-tans simply are, an organic part of the story universe as much as electronic computers are in ours. I would go as far as suggesting that computer-tans have existed in my story universe as long as computers have existed - even in ancient times.
Quote from: Bella on May 04, 2014, 01:09:31 pmI'm not sure if this holds up in Stew's or Nej's storylines, but I do believe the other major difference in my story universe - besides the simple existence of computer-tans - is probably a greater level of equality, both among human beings and between humans and computer-tans. It just seems natural that any society that would except the "personhood" of non-human entities would be much more advanced in terms of equal rights for human beings (women's rights, minority rights, gay rights, etc.) That said, there are quite a few cases of OS-tans being more-or-less "owned" by their companies (early Unix-tan and Multics-tan jump to mind) so I'm not sure if this was consistently true.
