Twitchy Lid: Anytime you are seriously fatigued (with 3 FP or less left) or have had any amount of insufficient sleep, one of your eyelids begins to twitch in an obvious and slightly disturbing manner. Those speaking face-to-face with your character during a "twitch episode" react at -1. This may be ignored entirely by characters with Unfazeable or something similar, but goes up to -2 around characters with Squeamishness.

Glass Jaw: Crushing attacks to your face have a x1.5 wounding multiplier.

OUCH! Whenever your character suffers a minor injury, dealing no more than 1 point of damage (e.g. papercuts, a bonk on the head, stepping on a tack), he must make a Will roll or cry out as if he had Low Pain Threshold.

I use this quirk to represent those cinematic heroes who can take bullets and third degree burns without flinching, but then cry like a little girls when they rub antiseptic on a minor scratch.

- Always thinking of an ear worm- a fun quirk in telepathiy related settings.

Always? That's Resistant: Psionics. It's a 30 point advantage. Even if Psionic Telepathy was a Rare category (it's generally not) that's still a 5 point advantage.

Depends on the severity of the mental worm. If any time anybody tried to read your mind, all they heard was "Fergalicious" on repeat, then it would be a significant advantage. If it's playing as background noise while they read your mind, making it harder to decipher your thoughts, maybe a 5 point advantage. If you're constantly humming the tune subconsciously (much to the irritation of those around you), I'd say it's quirk worthy.

If it works, it's Mind Block. If it just is, it's a Quirk Distinctive Feature.
