Immortal Tragedy by yuni
Immortal Tragedy
"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest,
of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand
times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge
rims at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how
oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your
flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?"

                                                   William Shakespeare, "Hamlet"

Drew this a while ago and it was meant as something like a joke
of role reversal, since in the original it's supposed to be prince
Hamlet talking to a skull.

I thought why wouldn't guys have a theatre in the afterlife as well,
so here are the actual actors that we see here:

"Hamlet" was once a boy called Nehemiah who got kidnapped by
wandering gypsies who turned him into a freak that they displayed
for money as he had a bracelet sealed on his waist forever, which
remained always the same since while he was growing up. He was
sometimes made to do private dancing for noble people and once
during one of such events the mansion he visited was trapped in
fire and everybody burned, including our hero. His skeleton has
never been found but people tell of some strange skeleton with a
bracelet around the waist who can be seen in the flames of burning

"Yorick" was once a unlucky jester called Elijah who amused the
king by sitting upon his own head but eventually the king couldn't
stand his bad sense of humor and beheaded him. Since then the
ghost boy haunted the king's castle and often appeared sitting on
his own head, though it became a lot easier now that it's detached
from the body.

Origami Boy by yuni
Origami Boy
Little by little the humanity is progressing in acknowledging its own abilities
and in the 22th century a special medical institute is open in Tokyo, Japan,
with the sole purpose to research the phenomenon of "contortionism".

The best performers from all over the world sign high budget contracts to
work as "lab rats" for a year or two, until their bodies are thoroughly
studied. After several decades the institute starts growing up their own
"lab rats" by signing contracts with parents to be able to test various
contortion training methods on their children since infancy.

The scientific approach gives amazing results and many methods are
discovered that one can use to reach extreme flexibility painlessly, without
any sort of medieval tortures, using the most modern devices and
approaches. And since it's Japan we're talking about, all these devices
look super cool and there are tons of anime and manga dedicated to the
present and future of this equipment and contortion in general.

Contortion is now injected into all genres of manga, from dystopias and
magic worlds to detective stories and social dramas, but... let's not get off
topic here XD

The training devices become capable of monitoring all bodily functions, thus
making the training very individual. Every trainee has a special internet
account where all his parameters are stored, so he can just log in to any
training device in the gym and it will automatically proceed with the most
effective routine.

The scientific proof that extreme stretching can be painless and healthy for
the body makes contortion so widely accepted in the world that it becomes
one of the most popular forms of art, along with music or dance, by the
end of the 22th century.

Here we can see a Japanese boy from the contortion studio "Origami" in
Tokyo. This is the studio that belongs to the aforementioned institude and
its children have the access to all the latest inventions. The name Origami
was chosen after the art of folding a simple sheet of paper in such a way
that it forms various beautiful figures, all without the help of scissors or
glue. Much like contortion is the art of making beautiful forms with nothing
but the human body!

As usual, I thank you a lot for looking and reading! Hope you enjoyed this
small update and please stay tuned for more~ Animated Pixel Heart by Aldric-Cheylan
