OriginEdit

Hans Christian Andersen was a famous Danish author and poet known for his fairy tales. His life was marked with defeat and misfortune. He never married and only had non-reciprocating love interests (both male and female), which saddened him to no end. To escape reality, he would "make up" stories while waiting to sleep. As he was an insomniac, the waiting usually lasted a long time. He would stare at the painting on the opposite wall, gaining inspiration for new stories.

EffectsEdit

Andersen’s anger, sadness and eventual madness seeped into the painting that gave him so much solace. When a person looks at the painting, they are immediately sucked into a dream-like vegetative state where fantastic things can happen. You can be pulled out of this dream, by a slap in the face (or smelling salts). When you are back in the real world, you are depleted of your energy and seriously need a cup of coffee … or a nap.
