Hello everyone. Okay This one comes in three parts.
1. For those who dont know, I was the one that created the Twilight Manipulation page way back when. I thought that was the name for an element formed from the combinations of Light aand Darknesss. But the thing is, Ive done some research andd it turns out that technically Shadow is more accurate. I thought it was the same as Darkness, but it does combine both aspects of Light and Darkness. That said, I am thinking it would make ssense to rename the page Shadow Manipulation. But what do you guys think of this?
2. Ive been thinking of this power set connecting of Reactive Adaptation and Twilight (Shadow) Manipulation. i got it in my head that being able to control an element like this could either compliment an ability like RA or give the wielder the ability as a byproduct. i was just wondering if something like thiss made sense
3.Ive been trying to research the mythological associations for Shadows, like the ones in the other pages, but Im having no luck. So I wanna ask the members that researched the mystical aspects for the other elements if they can enlighten
If you guys have answers for any of the questions, please reply. Thank You
I think twilight manipulation is less confusing given the fact that one can manipulate shadows via Darkness Manipulation itself as shadows are areas where light is blocked or doesn't reach. That and shadows are mostly, if not always, associated with darkness rather than a mix of both darkness and light.

You make a fair point, But now that I think about it, Twilight refers more to a point between night and day. Shadows are a combo of light in darkness as they can be considered an area of light thats darkened or an area of darkness thats illuminated.
And it would probably be good to point out to people that there is a difference between the two. A good eample of this would be Selim Bradley from Fullmetal Alchemist. Its likely assumed his power is darkness. However, his powers are established to be strictly Shadows. This is confirmed by the fact that during one of his fights its stated that he needs light in order to summon hiss power. When he's placed in an area of absolute darkness, hes powerless.
