"You might, but you can't because of the reason."

"I could say anything. I could do anything. I could say that I’m going to rape and kill your wife and you wouldn’t even notice. Hell, I could actually rape and kill your wife and you wouldn’t notice. I’m living in a virtual hell because I can’t die. I am going to step outside this room and take the guard’s gun. I’m going to shoot myself with that gun and nothing, fuckin’ nothing, is going to happen... Do you know what it feels like to be in a room crowded with people and they all ignore you? Do you know how hellish my life is? I want to die."
― Joe Schmo (SCP Foundation)

The user can convince other people into action or inaction, giving up their own counter-arguments no matter how factual or preposterous the argument they give. Whether the reason given actually manifests as true or not depends on the user.

For example, when a person wishes to go on a quest and their friends wish to join them, the user could simply say "(they) must do this alone", everybody immediately giving up their counter argument as a result.




  • May require some level of effort to work.
  • Reasoning may end up backfiring on the user, convincing the opposing person to do something they do not want instead.
