inside in the outside out

Freedom in Chains

She sat at her desk, hair all in disarray
And wondered what she should do
For her life seemed so bleak and worthless that day,
She wanted to talk, but with who?
She had no friends to speak of, no siblings to call, no pets to cuddle and play
So she pick up a pen and scratched down a few things about life going her way
She lost herself in the magic of bringing words to life
And spend the rest of her day there, forgetting about her strife
The day turned into nighttime and blissfully she wrote on
Staying up all night till light peeked in at dawn
About a half month later, again sitting in her chair
her parents came in to talk, much to her despair
They wanted her to get out more, take a brake from inside her head
Maybe go out walking, just to be outside instead
They worried she was unhappy, always in that chair
Writing of things that didn’t exist and never would be there
She promised she would go walking, so they would leave her be
Because they didn’t understand it, what it’s like to be free.
They said she was always stuck here, as if a prison cell
That the pen was some kind of addiction and she would end in hell
So that the people who didn’t understand would leave her be
she hid her writings away where none could see
But she never gave up her grip on her pen
She still writes now as she did back then.
It was a place she could forget her pains
There was beauty in the writing, and freedom in the chains

Hotel L'Era De Can Burges by Brad Downey in collaboration with AKAY, 2014.

A massive 9 bedroom country house hotel, 14 km outside of Girona, Spain is turned inside-out over the course of a week.  An entire football field was covered with fabric, they carried out 168 chairs, 23 beds, and emptied the house of all its lights and art. The cook shrieked to find all of the cookware and cutlery floating in the full sized swimming pool, clinking melodically on the calm surface, when she came that evening to prepare the 10pm dinner for the thirty hotel guests.

You walk into a bathroom and close the door behind you. You notice an “out of order” sign on the inside of the door. When you go back outside, things are out of order…

Does anyone else find it rather funny that Brienne, “the beauty” Of Tarth, who spent her whole life being teased and made fun of, now has (arguably) three men, good strong men, who look at her with the same eyes. Not as a challenge, or as a dare, but as a genuinely magnificent woman. They look at her like they care, and understand and that they might love her too.

Where as Cersei, the beauty of house Lannister, the lady that grew up to be queen, by marriage and then by conquest, who spent the better half of her life adorned with jewelry, is viewed by everyone with the same eyes. Fear, hatred, murderous intent.

Cersei may be beautiful on the outside, but Brienne is beautiful inside and out. People love her for who she is, no her title or gold, not for the silks she wears or the beauty of her face.

Brienne is truly beautiful.

Having a secret for so long that suddenly becomes public was uncomfortable and dread inducing. A part of you you’d kept locked away from prying eyes for years had not only been thrown into the spotlight, but shown to the one person you hadn’t wanted to see it. You felt naked, you hadn’t been ready to let the world know you were completely in love with Byun Baekhyun, but at the same time, you couldn’t help but feel a little relieved. The weight of keeping it hidden was gone off your shoulders but they still remained sagged from the pain in your chest.

Dungeon Design: Guiding Player Movement Part I

This is a guide to influencing your players to go where you want them to go. It’s like railroading, but more calculated and nearly invisible during a game. Here in Part 1 I am talking about purely visual properties and composition of a dungeon map. Throughout this post I am using a map from a previous dungeon my players went through. For context, it’s an ice cavern made into a lair for a clan of frost giants. Hidden somewhere within is a secret entrance to the lost tomb of a hero, which is their goal to find for this floor. Check out Part II here.


Leading the Players

Leading lines are lines that lead the players from one point of the map to another, much like in the composition of a photo or painting. Use them to less-than-subtly direct players in the direction you wish. Strong leading lines start from a large shape and end at a small shape, subconsciously simulating depth. Imagine someone pointing at a faraway object. You start at the person’s body, then arm, then finger, and finally at the direction they are pointing.

In the above image I’ve drawn out the leading lines. They are formed by the lines denoting elevated areas in the northwest room, the barrels in the northern room, the stone pillars in the eastern room, and miscellaneous objects in the southern room.

The stars on the map indicate the end goals that lead to the next level (there were two possible places in case they found one area before the other). The leading lines try to funnel players towards these goals.

Ways to create leading lines:

Actual lines: walls, barriers, elevation changes (marked by a line), floor tiling, rugs, long tables, etc.

Repeating Pattern: repeated objects that form a sequence can create a leading line.

Bisexual people make up a majority of the queer community. But bisexuals are much less likely to be out than gay men and lesbians. Those who are out are constantly silenced from both inside and outside of the LGBTQ+ community for talking about their experiences with homophobia and biphobia, and have their bisexuality erased by media, including LGBTQ+ media.

Think about that next time you want to say ‘bisexual people aren’t affected by [issue] as much as gay people and don’t need to be included’ in order to silence us talking about bi erasure, and think of how that erasure itself contributes to your belief that bisexual people aren’t as affected. 

Why Embracing Emotional Distress is the Best Medicine Sometimes

Much of our mental suffering is caused by our overwhelming attempt to avoid it. We think experiencing any sort of anxiety is a threat to our existing, but psychology studies have proven that one learns from struggle. One becomes a better human being through heartache. Let us explain with the science behind this theory..
