Ok, finally had some time to try this. I decided to start with Atom’s suggestion with the Harmonic effector.
I got it working. But the one thing that’s not working is that my second word is not rendering. The image above is only a screenshot to show what should be rendering. I wonder if it has anything to do with the dependencies on each other words. In the console it says: “Little depends on Nelly.002 through Field Collision. Nelly.002 depends on Little through Particle Field.”
Keep in mind that my animation is simpler. As there’s no second step perse. The particles go from the emitters to the words at once and that’s it.
