I don't know where to post this xD I'm writing a xuanhuan story, and I want to use the term Heaven's Will, (a) because it sounds cool and (b) because it's the most accurate term. I don't want to sound like I'm ripping off Emperor's Domination, though, because I'm not -- I was actually inspired by ISSTH (and a bunch of other series ofc) In Emperor's Domination (minor spoiler) the Heaven's Will is an accumulation of the power of a generation, which Immortal Emperors can tap into to empower their abilities. Lots of geniuses enter a cruel competition to gain its acknowledgement, "shoulder" it, and become an Immortal Emperor. In my story, there are many universes called heavens, and each heaven has a will. Whoever seizes control of that heaven's will can dictate how it behaves. So seizing a heaven's will in my story doesn't work like Emperor's Domination. When the term is capitalized, as in Heaven's Will, it's people referring to their particular heaven's will. Our world belongs to the Shattered Heaven. A long time ago, our heaven was one of the most powerful heavens, but a group of rulers from other heavens attacked our ruler and used a forbidden technique to kill him. Our heaven's will -- which was fused with him -- shattered. As a result, our universe doesn't produce spiritual energy, and there are no more cultivators or spiritual plants. In fact, our universe is wounded to the point where its will actively leeches energy to try to repair itself, and even powerful cultivators are scared to visit. It's slowly dying. The general consensus is that unless you've reached an unfathomable level, you'll be sucked dry in seconds and become a mortal. Our heaven's inhabitants had no choice but to rely on mundane technology, and all this stuff about magic and immortals became myth. So, yeah. What do you guys think? Should I keep the term? I feel like it should be okay because every series has stuff about the will of the heavens, not just ED. At the same time, ED is so popular that it's naturally the first thing people will think of when they hear "seizing Heaven's Will". EDIT: Thanks to whatever mod moved this to the right place!
