Geez. Okay, I guess...?

I really want to see more of Gaster's backstory, I wonder where he learned that sort of behavior. Who on Earth taught him these things?

Just think about it. It's clear that as a child he hasn't been treated very well, and has been brought up in a place with very strict rules. Also, probably no one has ever expressed their love towards him. As far as I know, he didn't have any friends before the goatparents and Alphys. It is easy to tell that he has never been shown affection by his parents. And since in the earlier years of his childhood, he is shown having both of his eyes open, I wonder what happened to his right eye? I get the feeling it was something rather violent... Of course it could be the result of a simple accident as well.

But really, have you seen the things he said not only in this comic, but in other ones as well? About him not supposed to glow when he's happy, even tough "eyeglowing is essential for a skeleton's emotional wellbeing", as he stated before. Or his usually stange and nervous reaction to physical contact, like when Asgore or the brothers touch him. On top of that, he thinks he should never do things that are only for his emotional benefit. All this feels like he thinks he's not allowed to feel certain things, to have emotions...

This is just really weird to me. Kinda makes me think the real villains of the story are Gaster's parents, or the people who raised him. If he would have been brought up differently, a lot of his and other people's suffering could have been prevented. Not all, but a lot of it.

Who's with me on this?

It kinda sucks that Gaster is so relatible here. I'm in gymnastics and if you're sad or upset or mad, basically anything that'll make you cry you're supposed to go to the bathroom and 'get yourself under control' and come back. If it happens at a meet and you miss your turn to compete then they don't care, "you should've gotten yourself together faster."

That simple gesture portrays Gaster's caring side. Crying is actually normal, and allows you to flush your terrible feelings out, but Gaster has difficulty in doing so to not be shown as a crybaby, or to make others uncomfortable with him, that's why he cares, he cares for monsterkind.
