D’ya think that maybe Brenner did take Eleven outside a few times when she was little? As sort of one of the “gifts” he gives her that will ultimately come with a price, the price being exploiting her powers? Maybe he carried little Eleven outside just for a moment, during the night as to not be seen, to plant the idea in her head that the world was a harsh and intimidating place that she needed his protection from? But, being the curious kid she is, she wasn’t listening to her Papa’s words of the fear and cruelty out there…she was looking at the stars instead, so bright and intricate and full of hope? Even when he took her back inside to the cold, prodding hands of the scientists for another examination, Eleven felt a little less scared and her heart felt a little more warm
tarot-themed bujo: Day Eleven: The Wheel of Fortune. I tend to get this card in readings a lot - it signifies change, luck, and cycles. It’s a card I really like, though the design in the deck I have makes it look slightly more ominous than I think it actually is.
