She's got just enough of a psychic ability to make life interesting, in a scary way.  Maybe postcognition, so she can't go anywhere without sensing or even relieving past, emotionally charged events; maybe telepathy that she can't quite control -- because honestly, it's far better not to know what people are thinking most of the time.

But she's stuck with it, and thought she'd learned to live with it, muddling through and seeming like any other ordinary person.  Now things are changing, fast -- weird things are everywhere now, and most of them aren't anything to do with her ability.  These are things and events she knows nothing about and can't control, and she has the feeling they're all leading up to something Very Bad.  That's about the point when she meets this guy...

That's the guy I'm looking for.  He might have minor powers like she does, maybe only knowledge of the larger pattern at work, but suddenly they're both in the middle of a secret war between ordinary humans and the things that go bump in the night -- a war that's less and less secret every day.

There's the basic framework, and details are negotiable -- it's intended for modern times, but historical would work as well.  (Gaslight makes things much creepier, after all.)   Freeform preferred, but a system like GURPS is fine, too.  Post here or PM if this inspires you....

Edit: Taken -- thanks for your interest.   :)

Sounds intriguing (and slightly similar to a Fantasy Idea I had involving mind powers) but I'd prefer Freeform over System.

You know, I've just realized that this idea must have been rather heavily influenced by Fringe, somewhere back in my subconscious.  Anyone want to help unravel the Pattern?

Actually, to me it sounds much more The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray than Fringe. If you haven't read that, definitely add it to your Christmas list.
