New Story Idea . . .

I'm starting another novel. Again :,) 

Yeeeesss the two other novels are both on hold. Same goes for the other two long stories I was working on. I'm terrible at finishing things but I'm fine at starting them! (If they are stories)

The title is currently Discount Deities. It's about a girl whose name is Anna who is enrolling at a private boarding school in a city with a very high crime rate. In this world people purchase "gods," which are really spirits that float around your head protecting you, for a set amount of time. Anna forgets to buy one and she needs to so right before she gets on the train she rushes to a shop called "Discount Deities" which is basically filled with gods for sale who are very inexpensive but also have very strange, not very useful powers. However, people without a god or with a very lame one to protect them in that city get shunned -- they (the gods) are more than just security guards. There is more to it than that but I am too lazy to type it out so yeeeeeeah. 

Could y'all please help me with coming up with powers (both lame and not) for them? Thanks, because I don't have many yet.

Saffron says "anuza." *gasp* AZULA

Thanks guys! These were super helpful. I think I'm mostly going to use the more defensive ones, especially the more versatile ones.
