OriginEdit

As HIV/AIDS held only negative associations for most of its existence (being a disease affecting mostly criminals and gays), treatment was vastly overlooked. Images of a gravely wasted David Kirby, unable to do as little as sit up in his hospital bed, shocked the nation. Most people just didn’t know until that point how horrifically disabling the condition was. With the approval of Kirby, his family and caretaker, photographs were allowed to promote treatment for the condition.

EffectsEdit

All the indescribable, conflicted feelings of a person. So much confusion and concern and expectations from a lifetime leading to the present point. Pushes the user’s current emotional state outwards for others to experience. Each wave draws more people into its field, working from loved ones to absolute strangers. Most without intimate awareness of the person won’t know why they suddenly feel their temples welling like a torrent, but have a more intimate understanding of the total emotional spectrum. Each push saps more strength from the user, leaving them immunodeficient to exposure. Flicking from the peak of health to bedridden can occur within days, even hours.
