Planning: Narratives


Felix is 13 year old boy who lives his life in the present, as you know technology is everyhwere in this day and age and the younger generation are growing up with new electronic products. Just like any other teenager Felix loves social media and game consols its only a matter of time before he become obsessed. Felix soon becomes oblivious to the fact that his days are repeating themselves but he is to engaged in the technology world to realise as he does the same thing each day so it seems like his day is no different to any other. He soon begins to notice that things keep reoccurring and  begins to start to panic more and more as each day goes by. As he gets to the breaking point of going mad he runs outside of the house away from the technology, he instantly feels calmer and soon after walks back in but doesn’t notice everything re occurring.

Step outline

Step 1: Felix wakes up and sees a text from his mate saying ‘come on xbox’,  he immediately gets up and sets up his console, he then puts his head phones on walks down stairs and gets some breakfast  but smashes a glass when doing so, he cleans it up and goes back to his room.

Step 2: Felix begins to play on his xbox as well as watching something on his laptop with his mobile and iPad next to him.

Step 3: A few hours later (supposedly) Felix’s mum comes into his room and says he’s been playing on his electronics for hours and needs to go out and get some fresh air, Felix ignores her advice and tells her to go away.

Step 4: Before Felix knows it its the evening and time for his dinner, his mum explains that he is always on his electronics and is changing as a person but Felix gets angry with his mum and cuts her out by putting his headphones on. He then goes back to his room and continues to play his game and go on social media until late at night.

Step 5: Felix wakes up from the same text as he received from his friend the day before but thinks nothing of it, he doesn’t realise that it is the same and time and date that his friend sent the text as well. Again Felix gets up and goes to get his breakfast (which was the exact same as the day before) but smashes the same glass the exact same way but again doesn’t realise it happened yesterday.

Step 6: Felix’s mum comes into his room at the same time and attempts to have the same conversation with Felix, Felix denies that he is constantly on his gadgets and again tells his mum to go away. It gets to dinner again and Felix’s mum has the same conversation with Felix as they did at the night before. Felix just thinks his mum is nagging him to get off his electronics and doesn’t do as is asked.

Step 7: Wakes up same time, same text from friend crosses Felix’s mind but thinks his mate is just messing about, Felix goes downstairs to get his breakfast, same breakfast is there all ready made for him, he sees the glass in the same place where he smashed it so he moves it (starting to realise the same things are happening and trying to avoid them from happening). he then goes back up to his room with his headphones one.

Step 8: Felix’s mum again goes into felix’s room tells him again to go outside, Felix just gives her an unusual look like she keeps repeating the same things on purpose. As she leaves the room Felix thinks about why the same things keep repeating but realises he’s in the middle of game and snaps out of it, but really he’s just falling back into the simulation of technology and no longer thinks why things are reoccurring. As Felix plays his on his games everything around him within the house and outside is repeating itself each day .

Step 9:  Phone text wakes up felix, felix messages his friend in panic, he goes downstairs and sees the same breakfast ready for him then goes back upstairs but choses not to go on his console, Felix thinks more and more why things are reoccurring, then his mum comes into his room says the same thing, Felix gets stressed and only then he remembers hearing and seeing things inside and outside the house repeating themselves each day. Felix knows that it was because he was constantly on some electronic that was distracting him what was happening around him.

Step 10: Felix goes round switching all his electronics off but nothing seems to change for the end of that day everything is still repeating itself, Felix is getting more worried and anxious, he goes to sleep

Step 11: Felix up, looks at the clock and its a different time to what he had previously been waking up to, goes to check his phone but choses not to, goes downstairs theres a different breakfast his mum is wearing different clothes the weather is different nothing has been smashed, he turns his phone on to check any texts from his friend but no texts are there including the ‘come on xbox’ text. was it a dream?
