"I loved you, always.”

going to comment a little on this game: the overseeing voice talks as if it owns you, and defies your free will. if you follow its orders, you are praised, and the worldview becomes sharper and more detailed. if you don’t, you are chastised, and the world becomes more vague and difficult to navigate, but also more colourful and loud. it’s odd, and sort of eerie, but definitely interesting. take it as you will.

This game really unsettles me. It unsttles me that my first choice to obey, and when I played again and disobeyed, I got really emotional really fast. Failure hurt me more the more I disobeyed. It was… interesting to experience.

i’ve always said we are trained to obey more than to think.

holy shit. i reblogged this the first time without playing. then i played in and it is terrifying. i very much like this, but it will give you intense feelings. 

What’s the game??

you obey everything the game tells you too, even jumping into barbs and basically killing yourself. if you dont youre chastised and even the scolding is terrifying

So, essentially, it’s a game that illustrates what it’s like to be in an abusive parents or an abusive relationship - and how it affects you emotionally. That is horrific and ingenious - the next time someone negates the affects of emotional abuse, I’ll take them to this game and let them come to their own conclusions.

This game absolutely gets it. The most solid and reliable degradation is a gendered insult. The more you obey and co-operate, the better understanding you seem to have of your word, and things seem easier. But what really gets me is the contradiction. You are not allowed to have the correct answer. Are you a boy or a girl? The answer is no, I will give you the answer. even towards the end, your “praise” is “no, I will give you the answer. You earned this answer, but it is given to you by me.” Disobeying makes the world frightening and confusing and difficult, but beautiful in a world devoid of flavour.

Not just a gendered insult, either. The nameless voice that directs the player’s actions is supposed to be a hateful, abusive monster, and when the game’s designers asked themselves “okay, what’s the most degrading, dehumanising thing this voice could possibly do to the player?”, the answer they came up with was “deliberately misgender them”.

15 MINUTES CHICKEN AND TOMATOES IN A PANWhat it says on the tin. It literally does not take anymore than 15 minutes, give or take, to assemble this dish, which is lightweight and tasty, not to mention very amateur friendly. Inspired by this recipe 
One chicken breast pr. person (Actually, I had 3 chicken breasts and I halved them, making 6 thinner ones, which meant that they would cook faster)
Around 10 medium sized tomatoes (more if you’re using small tomatoes)
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Fresh basil for garnish at the end
Start by cooking your chicken breasts in a pan with some olive oil. While they’re sizzling away, cut up your tomatoes into halves/quarters/other shapes, dice your onion and cut your garlic into thin slices. Remove the cooked chicken breasts and set them aside on a plate. Brown your onion and garlic for a few minutes to give them colour, and add in the tomatoes. After a minute or so, add the chicken breasts back in the pan, along with any juices left on the plate. Leave it for another few minutes and then it’s ready to serve. Garnish with fresh basil and start shoveling.

CINNAMON ROLL PULL-APART BREAD
Sometimes you see something and you just think ‘I need that. I have to have it.’ I saw the recipe for this beauty and knew I had to try and make it, because just look at that. It’s an American recipe, so I’ve gone and converted all the measurements, just in case any other metric system users feel like giving this a go. Mine did have a bit of sugar overflow that spilled onto the baking sheet, but for a first attempt at this, I’m pretty darn pleased.

For the dough: (keep in mind that this recipe makes TWO loaves. Divide the ingredients down by half unless you do want two)

  • 2 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 118 ml. warm water
  • 413 ml. milk
  • 96 g. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1024 g. flour
  • 113 g. melted butter

For the filling:

  • 4 tbsp. solid butter
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 192 g. sugar

For the method and more pictures of this beautiful thing, take a look at the original recipe right here

appreciate brown eyes more bc the people with brown eyes are grown up forcing to believe fuckin blue and green and grey are beautiful and either detest or get incredibly happy when someone compliments their eye color stop letting this happen

there are people with brown eyes reblogging this and theyre talking about still being sad with their eye color and this is exactly why we need hype about brown eyes

It probably depends on where you live right? Grew up in northern Denmark with very dark brown eyes, and have never met this issue. I’ve only ever had compliments about my eye color…
You know with teenage insecurities and all, my eye color was probably one of the few things I likes about myself…
