And never speak of you again by zarla And never speak of you again by zarla
We depend on you, we depend on you...

I was listening to Sad Machine and for some reason this one line brought this image to mind. Different ways of handling pressure, in a sense.
You can also flip this vertically if you want for a different look, haha.

Papyrus, Gaster (c) Undertale: I don't know much about your life beyond these walls,
the fleeting sense of love within these god-forsaken halls

Papyrus is the opposite of Gaster. In this picture, they contradict each other. Pap is everything that Gaster isn't. Lovely drawing!

To be honest, it's really sad, even with all of the bad he's done, to see Gaster suffering to me
Even though he deserves it, it just
hurts
I don't know why
maybe i really am a papyrus

Somehow Porter Robinson's holy trinity (Sad Machine, Shelter, and Goodbye to a World) really seem to apply to Zarla's work and Handplates in particular if you view it through a certain lens. I don't know how I didn't see it before, but here's how I perceive it.

Sad Machine is, of course, speaking of Gaster's relationship with the brothers; the chorus speaking of Sans's love towards Papyrus and bitterness towards Gaster, and the verse speaking of Papyrus's unconditional love towards everyone, even his torturer.

And though I know, since you've awakened him again,
he depends on you, he depends on you.
I'll go alone, and never speak of you again.

We depend on you, we depend on you.

I don't know much about your life beyond these walls,
The fleeting sense of love within these godforsaken halls
and you can hear it in his voice in every call,
this boy whose slept a hundred years has something after all.


Shelter is sort of how the outsiders (Alphys, Asgore, etc) treat the brothers and how that relates to Gaster. It's a call-and-response of "these are now the last of my people, please take care of them" and "you've done so much for us, we can't help but do this in return."

I could never find the right way to tell you.
Have you noticed I've been gone?
'Cause I left behind the home that you made us,
but I will carry it along.

And it's a long way forwards, so trust in me,

I'll give them shelter like you've done for me,
and I know I'm not alone
you'll be watching over us
until you're gone.

Goodbye to a World can be seen as either a somber last song from Gaster as he realizes the weight of his mistakes and how he's now going to pay for his crimes, or an even more somber last song from the brothers at the end of the No Mercy route hoping for something beyond death.

Thank you.
I'll say goodbye soon.
Though it's the end of the world,
don't blame yourself, now.
And if it's true,
I will surround you
and give life to a world that's our own.
...or maybe I'm just crazy and obsessed. But that's my viewpoint, haha. Chitanda Smile Icon
