OriginEdit

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was an American poet. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts, to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. She would often lower down fresh baked gingerbread cookies to the children of the neighborhood from her room.

EffectsEdit

Basket fills with an endless amount of gingerbread cookies, but eating one suddenly makes family members and friends sick with illnesses undetectable by normal means. The eater sometimes develops shut-in type qualities, wanting to shut out anyone close.
