The day Monster kind was sealed into Mt. Ebott, the mages added a little extra insurance. A curse.
Human SOULS may pass. But Human forms may not.
Young Frisk must navigate the dangers under the mountain, a little less human than before...
I don't usually see Napstablook getting all that much attention, the most I've seen probably being in the Metal and Magic AU, or Inverted Fate. But I'm enjoying your Napstablook a lot so far! I like that their personality friendship with Frisk is getting some love.
@LKWayvern: Yeah, Blooky just doesn't get enough love. (⌣_⌣”)
Since Frisk is still mostly a silent protagonist I wanted them to have a companion that could sort of be their voice and look out for them. Blooky fills that role perfectly given the flexibility of his magic, and I loved the idea of exploring his character growth. That and the symbolism of a child drawing comfort from a stuffed animal in a scary place was too cute not to use.
I like Sans a lot, but he tends to get the spotlight in most Undertale media.
@Tarableart: I must admit, a child drawing comfort from a stuffed animal in a scary place is definitely WAY too cute not to use! I love it~
Hm. Not sure if you play Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, but that sort of reminds me of the role of the partner in those games. There's the Hero, who you control, and who does have thoughts you can see, but rarely ever speaks more than a few lines, and the Partner, who is the best friend of the Hero, and who does most of the talking when you speak with an NPC or someone. Or, that's what it reminds me of, anyway. I've always really enjoyed PMD games, and especially how the friendship between the Hero and Partner is really powerful, without any hints of it turning to a romantic relationship. I know it's probably because it's a game meant for kids, but that series has several darker themes, and as someone with no interest in romance, and who'd maybe like a queerplatonic relationship someday, it's just really wonderful to see a powerful friendship bond in media.
Long story short, I'm excited to see more of this relationship between Napstablook and Frisk, I really love this kind of thing!
Tell me about it. In my own AU, I'm trying to give other monsters more of a spotlight, but keep the emphasis on Chara and Frisk, and how their relationship as friends develops, mostly.
