Yeah, this kinda play scares me to be honest. I don’t usually feel safe when I don’t know if the person is being themselves (who could be dangerous anyway) or not (and not can be playful or sinister). I am ok w it in a closed, time/space-bound environment but not an open one.
I do things sometimes and call them semi-fictional narratives and if u know the (particular) real story behind the semi-fictional one, you will know what it is, but if u don’t i noticed that ppl take em literally. When I am clear they’re semi-fictional
I think pedagogically it’s so useful to ask students as they analyze and create digital stories what every choice and decision means for how we represent and interpret things/stories/lives.
