how Corvo got his powers

Corvo: So I concentrated on my mark and walked over to the Shrine. And I walked on up to the guy floating there.

The Outsider: Yeah, what do ya want? [sick violin solo]

Corvo:  You got any tinned hagfish?

The Outsider: Nah, we’re outta tinned hagfish.

Corvo: You got any tinned eels?

The Outsider: Nah, we’re outta tinned eels.

Corvo: You got any tinned Dabovka whale meat?

The Outsider: Nah, we’re outta tinned Dabovka whale meat.

Corvo: You got any hagfish eggs?

The Outsider: Nah, we’re outta hagfish eggs.

Corvo: You got any apricot tartlets?

The Outsider: Nah, we’re outta apricot tartlets.

Corvo: You got any Tyvian pears?

The Outsider: Nah, we’re outta Tyvian pears,

Corvo: You got any serkonan sausage?

The Outsider: WAIT A MINUTE, I’ll go check.

[sick violin solo plays for 10 seconds]

The Outsider: NAH, WE’RE OUTTA SERKONAN SAUSAGE.

Corvo: Well in that case, what DO you have?

The Outsider: All I got right now is this box of one dozen starving, crazed plague rats.

Corvo: OK, I’ll take that.

Corvosider "You're warm" (maybe with recently made human!Outsider?)

Voices speaking in quiet tones were all that could be heard from the room next door, and only if he concentrated could the Outsider hear which one belonged to Billie and which was Emily’s. At first he had perhaps expected shouts or yelling, but the small smile Emily threw Billie before they disappeared had removed that suspicion. Instead there was nothing but peacefulness; nothing to stop his mind from going in circles.

Corvo was staring at him, silently, just like he had done ever since they had laid eyes on each other. Emily had been the one to talk, to ask questions and demand answers, while her father was as quiet as a statue. If it had been any other the Outsider supposed he would have felt uncomfortable or annoyed by the constant focus on him—but Corvo was different. Had always been, since he first caught the Outsider’s attention. The only source of irritation the Outsider felt was by his inability to look into Corvo’s mind and see what feelings were hiding there.

For once the Outsider found it hard to return the steady gaze. He wanted to speak, but there were no words that seemed fitting. Should he explain his situation in more details? Should he apologize for not contacting Corvo, for not letting him know what was happening? Should he ignore the question of the Void and ask how the rebuilding of the city went, even though he still knew more about the detailed work than Corvo himself? Should he ask how Corvo’s day had been? Should he talk about the weather? That was what people did when they didn’t know what to say, didn’t they?

Jakob Mohr

- Beweisse [Proofs],

ca. 1910.

Courtesy Prinzhorn Collection, University of Heidelberg.


The psychiatrist Hans Prinzhorn began collecting for his famous Museum of Pathological Art the same year that Tausk published his essay (within a year Prinzhorn had acquired 4,500 works, which are currently housed in the Psychiatric University Hospital in Heidelberg, Germany). One of these images illustrates an Influencing Machine in strikingly graphic form. The artist was Jakob Mohr, a farmer and hawker suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, and his picture shows someone holding a small box which resembles an old-fashioned camera and transmits something like static at its victim. The structural workings of the contraption are explained in a palimpsest of scribbled notes, which Prinzhorn called “word salad.” The operator, who is thought to be the psychiatrist (he wears headphones so that he can listen in on Mohr’s thoughts), aims a radiation tube at his subject that emits “electric waves” and renders him a “hypnotic slave.” The machine’s energy flows two ways—it is a magnet as well as a gun: “Waves are pulled out of me,” Mohr scrawled, “through the positive electrical fluorescent attraction of the organic positive pole as the remote hypnotizer through the earth.” The appliance’s malevolent power over Mohr is illustrated by a series of childishly drawn arrows and wavy tentacles which unite both men in a painful-looking spasm of electricity.

Max 

Robin is crying in my arms. It’s been 36 hours since her contractions began. She’s finally started to crown, but she’s tired and hurting and afraid. 

Neither of us had any idea that her labor was going to last this long. She insisted that she wanted to do everything naturally, and she’s stuck to that, but I hate seeing her this way. I want to take care of her, and knowing that she’s in pain and there’s nothing I can do about it is unbearable. 

“Why does it sting?” she moans. I rub her back. They talked to us about this, but I can’t blame her for not remembering. She can hardly concentrate anymore. 

I smooth her sweaty hair back from her forehead, kissing her ear lightly as I whisper, “The doctor said it’s normal.” 

“Well, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt!” she sobs.

“Robin, you’re not a bother,” I murmur soothingly, running my hand gently through her hair. 

She shakes her head adamantly. “I’m too needy,” she moans. “You don’t deserve it.”
