They’re frightened inside. Trapped by the walls that protect them. 

A cosplay made by the wonderful Kittiofdoom Cosplay of Cole from Dragon Age Inquisition, edited by me. Be sure to check out my stuff at my facebook page too! 

Really enjoyed doing this one. I have some others to get to tomorrow that i’m really looking forward to! I’m also going to be starting my next pokemon commission asap!

I distance myself when I can feel my walls coming down. Because that scares me the most. Those walls protect me, they make me strong, empowered, independent. They keep a level head on my shoulders and all my deepest darkest emotions and feelings in check. But when I can feel them breaking and weakening … I run. I run because I’m terrified to see what’s behind them. To let the monster that has been pent up for years harbouring pain, disappointment, insecurities, sadness, hurt, distrust, and everything beyond or in between those emotions, free. The memories that have tied me down or broke me surfacing to be relived again. The thoughts that have kept me awake, sleepless for days, coming back to steal precious sleep away. I cannot even forgive that side of me. I cannot love those parts of myself. I cannot live with the mistakes and regrets I’ve made. So how would someone else be able to face the monster? Or live with my sorrow if I cannot.

VertiGo

Robotics project from Disney Research and ETH Zurich is a remote controlled four wheel car that can drive on vertical walls:

VertiGo is a wall-climbing robot that is capable of transitioning from the ground to the wall, created in collaboration between Disney Research Zurich and ETH. The robot has two tiltable propellers that provide thrust onto the wall, and four wheels. One pair of wheels is steerable, and each propeller has two degrees of freedom for adjusting the direction of thrust. By transitioning from the ground to a wall and back again, VertiGo extends the ability of robots to travel through urban and indoor environments. The robot is able to move on a wall quickly and with agility. The use of propellers to provide thrust onto the wall ensures that the robot is able to traverse over indentations such as masonry. The choice of two propellers rather than one enables a floor-to-wall transition – thrust is applied both towards the wall using the rear propeller, and in an upward direction using the front propeller, resulting in a flip onto the wall.

“Εν Απογνώσει”


Τον έχασ’ εντελώς. Και τώρα πια ζητεί
στα χείλη καθενός καινούριου εραστή
τα χείλη τα δικά του· στην ένωσι με κάθε
καινούριον εραστή ζητεί να πλανηθεί
πως είναι ο ίδιος νέος, πως δίδεται σ’ εκείνον.


Τον έχασ’ εντελώς, σαν να μη υπήρχε καν.
Γιατί ήθελε —είπ’ εκείνος— ήθελε να σωθεί
απ’ την στιγματισμένη, την νοσηρά ηδονή·
απ’ την στιγματισμένη, του αίσχους ηδονή.
Ήταν καιρός ακόμη —ως είπε— να σωθεί.

Τον έχασ’ εντελώς, σαν να μη υπήρχε καν.
Aπό την φαντασίαν, από τες παραισθήσεις
στα χείλη άλλων νέων τα χείλη του ζητεί·
γυρεύει να αισθανθεί ξανά τον έρωτά του.
