F!Speed just personal bendalloy bubble?

Question

Posted (edited)

I read an almost essay length answer about speed feruchemy a while ago, which covered a well written theory on how speed worked. They said it was slowing down the time it took to perform actions (speed=distance÷time). When bleeder uses speed, she's seen as a blur

Of course we know another thing that makes speed look like a blur. Bendalloy bubbles. I propose that speed slows down the time it takes to complete actions by essentially erecting a miniature bendalloy bubble around the user (and specifically the user) that's intensity varies with the amount of speed being tapped from the steelmind and a cadium bubble when the user is filling. admittedly the cadium bit is less solid as it doesn't slow time for the user but makes them seem as if they are 'moving through molasses' but the first part holds. Lemme know what you all think!

If I can find it I'll link the original paper in the message somewhere.

This wasn't the obvious conclusion ofter AoL?

I decided to post it to see what others think cause the mechanics of feruchemy aren't obvious to everyone. I have my opinions on the topic of how speed works but certain people may disagree, and cosmere is interesting to debate.

I think that this is how the mechanics works, with one caveat: speed bubbles don't move relative to the person in them. So a personal, moveable speedbubble, yes.

I think that it works a bit better the other way. Allomantic speed is similar to Feruchemical speed, but with restrictions in movement, but not storage

When you say allomantic speed what metal do you mean? I'm confused. Pewter or bendalloy bubble?

And yes I meant a movable personal bendalloy bubble. Thank you for clarifying

Bendalloy. Pewter is more endurance (along with a huge strength buff) and balance. These can lead to speed, but yeah, I was trying to relate Feruchemical steel to Allomantic Bendalloy and Cadmium (the reverse of what you were doing)

i know what the metals do dont worry :) . i didnt realise what you meant by allomantic speed. and i agree fully with your standpoint on it. thanks for your info!

Probably? Because super speed is a very complicated thing, so I don't know how I'll feel if Brandon says it's supposed to just be physical speed. What we saw looked very much like a temporal power. Or maybe Feruchemy just doesn't fit into quadrants at all.

It's sad because while I love the idea of turning every fight into full on VATS mode or bullet time if you prefer... I am also disgusted by how broken it is.  

Its basically peterparker vs flash scene.  F-Steel A-Iron = spiderman???

I thought that Allomantic Pewter was a general boost to all physical attributes except the senses? I could've sworn that when Vin kept up her pewter for ages while healing, it wasn't just to stay alive so she could heal, but also that burning pewter sped up healing. I also thought that Pewter dragging wasn't just running for a really long time, but running at somewhat superhuman speed for a really long time.

It is, but that wasn't really pertinent to the discussion, so I neglected to mention it
