Don't turn back now that we're here by zarla Don't turn back now that we're here by zarla


This wasn't the surprise Asgore had in mind...

Where could Papyrus have seen that house before, hmm.
Sans is wearing Asgore's hoodie, thus why it's so enormous on him. Papyrus feeling very fashionable today.

This took even longer to do than I thought and the next one is also going to be really long and/or difficult, plz continue to bear with me.

I actually recorded a "speedpaint" video of me doing this comic, if you want to see the whole process. It takes a very long time, so I put all the vids together in a playlist.




Sans, Papyrus, Asgore (c) Undertale: no railings in that house either

Zarla you are beyond awesome. 

Was this Gaster's house?  There is Toriel's pie in the fridge, Test tubes as well in the fridge, the person felt smart enough to try and fix the television if it were someone paid to do it the tools wouldn't be left there,  Asgore has a key to the house suggesting him being a friend of whoever owned the house, the stack of books upstairs also suggests someone who likes reading, the lack of memory of someone ever owning the house with the house itself looking like someone lived...  WAIT did Gaster just buy this house!?!!  The packing boxes, the tv was being set up, the books aren't on a shelf they are stacked?!, Snowdin is pretty far from his lab and with how often he focused on work he probably wouldn't like a long commute from life-changing experiments.  He had ceased testing harmfully on them.  The ketchup and the milkshake... I don't think Gaster would know that they like those... but it makes it feel he was going to start mercyplates.  And who else would have a bone picture hanging up on the wall so nicely?

Zarla drew the clues, that's why they are so awesome. 

*I played a lot find the 'hidden pictures' and 'spot the difference' as a kid.  As well as being in this fandom for a while.*

Yeah, I forgot a little xD But that's okay, thank you for answering. You're very good at finding clues, so I hope that if Zarla hides something on future pages (and I'm pretty sure it will be) then at least you'll find it. I am unfortunately not so good at this: <

Hghghhgh where to even begin with this one.

First Papyrus's Mr. Saturn shirt is beautiful. Plus the armwarmers and pink pants. FABULOUS. Second his empty, zoned-out eyes are extremely distressing. Has Asgore always had that pendant pinning his cape? Oh well, I love it anyway. This had SO MUCH potential to be a light, delightful adventure, with a visit from Santa and all...and then all the time and space nonsense had to ruin the mood. Man even when he's been erased from time Gaster ruins all their happy moments.

So Papyrus is basically having a moment like Sans did in the golden corridor. Except he's not as prone to hiding his emotions and reactions to things, so he just makes a beeline for the house. And of course Asgore JUST SO HAPPENS to have a spare key for the weird abandoned-but-in-great-condition-and-fully-furnished house in Snowdin. HMM I wonder why that would be? And Papyrus just grabs it out of his hand like yes that is mine now, thank YOU.

I legit laughed out loud when Papyrus said only skeletons could appreciate something this magnificent. It matches up with what he says in the game so perfectly, AND it gives yet another hint of what Gaster left behind. The pompous git probably would have said the same thing himself lol. And Sans's quip about the dog is brilliant too, lol. And "What's a memory, but backwards?" has to be my favorite thing I have read in a long time, in anything. I just sat there trying to figure it out, and of course it doesn't make sense, but it also perfectly describes what they're going through right now. All of the dialog in this one is just so perfect. Not that I've ever found it lacking anywhere else lol.

It hurts so much to see Sans trying to have the difficult conversation with Papyrus about this not actually making any sense and being rather freaky, but without trying to rain on Papyrus's parade. And after this interruption he's probably never going to bring it up again. I was just about to write "and help Papyrus to avoid having to deal with all of this," but that isn't exactly what Papyrus is doing. Really he's facing all the strangeness head-on. He's just also accepting it as part of their reality. He knows it doesn't make sense and not all the pieces are there, and openly acknowledges them. He just doesn't let any of that change his course of action. Just like how he deals with the human no matter what their behavior toward him is. Between the two of them Sans is certainly the most avoidant.

I also googled an image of the house in-game just to confirm there are no handrails XD All the little details you threw into the house are perfect, too. The mug on the table, the TV Gaster was probably trying to repair but never actually finishing, the pie, milkshake (or iced coffee?), and test tubes in the fridge, all the books. Just like someone up and left the place out of nowhere. But of course that couldn't be, everyone knows this house has been empty for years...

Also GURL don't you worry about how long these take you to finish. Do you realize how long I've been sitting on the audiobook of I Shot the Serif? Like 6 months since anything new graced my YT channel. You are doing fine <3
