I told myself I'd make a post for all my Underfell headcanons, and it's finally here! My version of Underfell actually isn't much different or darker than Undertale itself. :o

You know, I love everybody in Undertale. All except one. No, it's not Jerry.

Warning: this rant will be about abusive relationships and be angry and contain a lot of swearing. And spoilers. Lots and lots of spoilers.

Spoilers for Undertale's True Ending and Genocide Route. )

So I wanted to finish my second playthrough of the Halloween Hack so I could write a big essay comparing its themes with Undertale's.

So how does it hold up? Spoilers: Halloween Hack, Undertale, and Madoka Rebellion. TW: Brief paragraph where I talk about a scene in HH that reminded me of sexual assault. )

Anyway, what I did with this guy was incredibly fanfictastic and I really really doubt that in reality (in Itoi's mind) that he is like this AT ALL. But he's just one of those characters that's boring and not explained at all, so I fleshed him out a whole lot and here we go he's cool now.

HOLY SHIT THOSE ARE EXACTLY THE SAME THOUGHTS I HAD WHEN I TRIED TO DEVELOP TONIO IN MY ABORTED RISE OF DARKRAI SEQUEL

I don't know when I'm loading the Realmscon photos, since I don't have a cable for my phone yet. So instead, let's talk about Undertale.

I did both peace and genocide runs. I'm going to go indeph in spoilers into this, and Undertale is the kind of game you should NOT be spoiled for. So... play it first, okay? Then come back and hear me cry.

Inside the labyrinth walls, there lies a tiny child who sleeps alone )

And this child I will destroy if you try to set her free )

I recommend playing the peace run, then if you're wondering THAT much about the genocide route, you can play it up to a point... THEN FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP AND RESET BEFORE YOU FACE ASGORE. That way, you'll get all the extra dialogue about what you've done that round for the next playthrough, but still have a chance to redeem yourself. You can always watch the genocide ending on Youtube. Listen to people when they say personally beating the genocide run will ruin the best ending forever. Not just in a metaphorical/psychological sense. It literally WILL.

One of my favorite things about good writing is that no matter how much you read, there's still an awesome twist out there that'll totally rock your world. I love being wrong in my predictions and being totally surprised. :D

Mermaid Swamp was like that. Goddamn. I won't look at "mermaids" the same way again. Fun Fact: I got the absolute worst endings first, and that was me playing normally. Whoops. But looking back, getting the bad endings first is how I recommend playing this game. It gives you much more food for thought by the time you get the True Ending. Quick spoiler for the 'Secrets' Ending )

I've forgotten how unnerved I get by bloated things floating in the water. Probably due to my family looking after sick goldfish in my childhood. The nasty gurgling sounds you hear when you enter Yuka's room... ugh.

I like that Rin is a loud-mouth, haha. XD I'm used to having a silent protagonist or someone like Yuka as the main character in RPG Horror games, so Rin's a nice change of pace. While I've seen shippy art of her and Seitaro together, I prefer them as Vitriolic Best Buds. Seems more fun that way.

I've been so pleased with Uri's games! I liked Paranoic, and I liked The Crooked Man even more. Dat storytelling, man. All I've got left to play is The Sandman, which I'll check out next time I'm disappointed with a game. :D

This is a video Dad took of our chickens eons ago.

There's a mystery still plaguing us to this day; what kind of chickens are they? They've got these beautiful black feathers with a blue sheen, and as you can see with one of the chickens, a gorgeous golden orange pattern.

I'm pretty sure it's just me, but I noticed that in certain Pokemon movies (and even games, if you think about it) that when a dysfunctional and/or tragic yaoi couple is thrown in as a catalyst to the plot, the story gets a whole new layer, and sometimes even immensely improves. For example:

1. The Lucario movie is not only about healing old wounds and helping ghosts rest in peace, it's the tale of a star-crossed couple who are reunited after a centuries-long misunderstanding. What, you mean it isn't already?
2. The Shaymin movie is really about Mugen and Zero's relationship. Zero uses Giratina to cover his frustration of being rejected/"betrayed" by Mugen, the one person who made him feel like he belonged and had a place outside of the Reverse World. Mugen feels guilty and helps Ash and Co. to redeem himself for his mistakes. By the end of the film, Mugen and Zero forgive each other and finally consummate their relationship.
3. If I had been in charge of writing the Arceus movie, Damos would've betrayed Arceus on his own volition (rather than handwave it by having him brainwashed by Marcus), only to regret it and sink in sorrow... until Ash and Co. visit him in time to give him a wake-up call, which has him sacrifice himself for the God he truly loved. Alas, that's not what happens in the movie, with or without scandelous God-on-Human romance. Because the Pokemon Anime writers suck. Thank god I ragequit before the Genesect movie.
4. Pokemon X/Y would actually have a subplot of Professor Sycamore wrangling with a moral dilemma and switching between denial and horror when he realizes his boyfriend is a genocidal maniac.

The Jirachi movie is interesting in this regard, since not only is Diane/Butler a hetship, the dysfunctional and/or tragic romance is actually canon instead of speculation on my part.

Now we just need a dysfunctional and/or tragic yuri couple, and the circle is complete.

You know, it's telling that the healthiest relationship in the above examples is the knight and his clearly-a-Pokemon apprentice. Figures.

Me: Headcanon: Ness, Paula, and Jeff look up to Poo for his maturity. Jeff feels most comfortable around Poo, and whenever he's feeling insecure, Poo reminds him of his worth. Poo is always truthful, so when he says he respects you (he says that at least once to all the Chosen 4), it means a lot. ;;

Ness and Jeff have a tendency to bicker a lot, because their backgrounds are so different and their personalities clash. After Paula is kidnapped at Fourside though, they learn to work together and see how valuable their differences are. After they save Paula, Ness teases Jeff a lot less, and Jeff is less critical of him. They're the "friends you don't expect to be friends" kind of pair.

Paula's view of the Chosen 4:

Ness: Sometimes she can be a little exasperated with him, but it never lasts long. She relaxes around him almost instantly, and considers him the best friend that she's always wanted. ;;

Jeff: She has a lot in common with him, and she's quite pleased about that. Sometimes Jeff confuses her ("SCIEEEEENCE!") and some of his behavior and technobabble is lost on her, but she doesn't mind.

Sarah: paula always seemed like the most accepting one

Me: Poo: She has a great deal of respect for him. She's never expected a prince to act and look like he does, and she's still blown away by his humility. He's the one she turns to for particularly deep/philosophical conversations.

Sarah: oh i like that idea

Me: All: Mother hen of the group. Paula wants you to take better care of yourself, and leave Jeff alone, Ness. >(

Sarah: that she and poo talk about philosophy
i bet she's really mature for her age :V

Me: She really is, especially because her psychic powers made her grow up too fast.

Sarah: since her parents own a preschool she probably is used to being a 'grownup' too

Me: Ness lets her be a kid again. ;;

Sarah: aww
they should do silly things together

Me: Ness & Paula are the adorable cute couple who just enjoys doing the little things together, like going out for pizza or watching a movie~

You ever have those songs that you've listened to for years, then when you go revisit them, you think, "O SNAP IT'S SO-AND-SO'S THEME SONG"? 'Cause I got that moment when I checked out Meryl Streep's take on "Stay With Me" from Into the Woods.

The main villain of the novel I'm working on is a nutcracker named Dr. Medlock. He's kidnapped one of the main characters, Raggedy Ann, and is holding her hostage while using her candy heart for an experiment he's working on. Said experiment is him trying to bring his lost daughter back to life; a ballerina doll named Clara that he took under his care until the day she disappeared in a fire reminiscent of the one from "The Steadfast Tin Soldier." Basically, he parallels Johnny Gruelle (creator of Raggedy Ann & Andy) and his grief over losing his daughter Marcella... except Dr. Medlock is a hell of a lot more psychotic and abusive. In spite of the verbal beatings, manipulation and punishment he administers, he develops a bizarre attachment to Ann as though she were Clara herself...

What did I clearly say?
Children must listen!

What were you not to do?
Children must see and learn...

Why could you not obey?
Children should listen!
What have I been to you?
What would you have me be?
Handsome like a Prince?

Ah, but I am old
I am ugly
I embarrass you!

You are ashamed of me
You are ashamed

You don't understand...

Don't you know what's out there in the world?
Someone has to shield you from the world
Stay with me

Princes wait there in the world, it's true
Princes, yes, but wolves and humans, too
Stay at home
I am home
Who out there could love you more than I?
What out there that I cannot supply?
Stay with me

Stay with me
The world is dark and wild
Stay a child while you can be a child
With me...


~Stay With Me~
~Into the Woods~

Guys. Guys guys guys, I've finished watching Utena, and the movie too. I MUST TALK WITH PEOPLE OMG

The Juri-centered episodes are my favorites. :D I feel so bad for Juri, but I don't find myself enormously hating Shiori either. That's the thing with this series; everybody is flawed in some shape or form, and some are even downright horrible people. But rather than pissing me off and wanting to ragequit the product for its cast being too unlikable (*coughWutheringHeightscough*), there's qualities about the characters that are fascinating, even endearing. Like Touga and Saionji are assholes, but they're such stupid kids that I wanted to see them be friends again. Any other series, I would've despised Nanami, but she's such a butt-monkey it's hard to get mad at her for long; hell, I felt downright sorry for her during her last arc in the series. D: I appreciated having the nicer characters to balance things out (Miki, Wakaba), and their fatal flaws didn't turn me off them at all... instead, they felt a lot more realistic. Like Miki's need for the "shining thing," I've seen a lot of people grasping for something like that. And Wakaba's need to be special and above "the other girls," I can relate to that. ;;

Spoilers for the whole series. TW: abuse and sexual assault )

I still can't believe this was made in 1997-1999. It feels like such a recent show. :o

So here's a scenario I've thought up for a human AU, mainly involving Mangle:

All her life, Mangle had been bullied. She was never exactly pretty, and a lot of the teasing came from all the acne she had, leading to kids calling her "Pizza Face." Then one day, to put the final nail in the coffin, she barely survived a freak car accident.

With all her limbs broken, she would be wheel-chair-bound for the rest of her life. Teasing was rarer (Good News: No one called her Pizza Face anymore. Bad News: Now they called her Mangle), but now everyone would avoid her or shake their heads with pity. Her only consolation was her makeup kit, where she would sit in front of the bathroom for hours "drawing" and "painting" her face. It didn't make her less ugly (in fact, most people found her even more terrifying with makeup), but it was something she liked to do and it calmed her.

One day, after she was transferred to a "disabled" class, she met a boy with a hook for a hand playing with blocks. He was known as "Foxy," a messy redhead who caused all sorts of trouble and gave the teachers a lot of grief, such as sneaking behind other kids and scaring them or running down the halls. Mangle looks at the blocks longingly, when Foxy sees her. He's intimidated by her at first, but he shakes it off and invites her to play pirates with him and join "his crew." Mangle crawls out of her wheel-chair and they play together for hours. They become close friends, and Mangle chases Foxy by wheeling after him in the hall, much to the distress of the adults.

Eventually, Foxy introduces Mangle to his other friends: Freddy, Bonnie, and Chica. While resembling little angels who always received good grades, they're just as much mischief makers as Foxy is. The five of them have a lot of fun causing mayhem at school; while Freddy, Bonnie, and Chica were subtle, Foxy and Mangle were wilder and often sent to detention. This meant that Foxy and Mangle didn't get to see the other three as often, and sometimes, they felt a little left out. Eventually, even Foxy started to avoid Mangle, hoarding things she couldn't see and making excuses that he was busy. She wonders if maybe he wasn't her friend after all…

One day, Mangle wheels her way home after an average, boring day. She opens the door:

"SURPRIIIIIIIIIIIIIISE!"
"Happy Birthday!" Foxy popped up from the side and winked.

While she had been away, Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy had set up a surprise party for their new friend. All this time, Foxy had been squirreling away gifts for her, and wanted to keep them a secret. They spend the rest of the day laughing, eating cake and pizza and ice cream, and playing games.

And that was how Mangle met her new best friends.

Remember that one quote by J.K. Rowling? Let me tweak it a bit: "If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his NOTP and its shippers, not his OTP and their shippers.

You know what? I've been keeping this bottled for a while. I've spoken with close friends about it, and they made me feel better enormously, so I thought that was the end of that. But I might as well tell you what happened, DW and LJ.

So, there's these two artists who are twins in the Earthbound fandom who draw for an obscure pairing: Jeff/Poo. They've put a lot of thought into their headcanon (Jeff and Poo would eventually raise a couple Mr. Saturns), their art is cute, and their smut is tasteful. Unfortunately, there's a reason I don't follow them on tumblr and separate their art from them as people. And it looks like that reason won't be changing anytime soon.

Ladies and Gentlemen? This is how NOT to react to your NOTP. )

tl;dr: I'm a horrible, dirty Jeff/Tony shipper, and putting Tony in art (especially with Jeff) is offensive, because HE'S EVERYWHEEEEEERE OMG.

Anyway, off to feed the campus cats. They'll cheer me up.
