Journey to the End of the Night DC by Innocuous Invention

May 5th, 2008 8:38 AM

INSTRUCTIONS:

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.


If you participated in the Journey in any way (as a player, chaser, or volunteer), please post your story here. Tell us a story of Danger. Fear. Drive. Craftiness. Power. Adventure!

The more thorough you are, the better. If you have photographs, please include them! Even better, draw your experience! Describe your chases, the people you met, what you thought of the route, the checkpoints, and how you perceived the city.

Thanks,
Spidere

My girlfriend and I came down to DC from New Haven, CT for Journey to the End of the Night. I wanted her to meet my old college friends like Spidere, and to get a sense of the crazy stuff we like to do. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera, so you'll have to take my word for some of this stuff.

A few days before

AUGH WEBSITE EAT BIG STORY

Seriously, I hit submit and everything but what you see up above disappeared. What's up with that? Thanks to the organizers anyway, but no way am I going to try typing all that up again. Oh well, it's the doing that matters.

I have no idea why that happened. Anyone? :(

Did you by any chance copy and paste the text from elsewhere? For instance, if you wrote it in Notepad?

Because there is always a delay between when you type text and when the website saves it; this glitch is why you periodically see praxes ending with sentence fragments when the last half paragraph or so gets eaten.
