Crashing Down - Chapter 1 -

"If you were trying your hardest we would be out on the surface by now!"
Gaster cringed away from the squid monster who just hit him.  "I-I'm sorry...  I'll find a way out soon I'm sure..."
"You keep saying soon!  I want my son to experience the sun!  You need to work harder!"  The squid monster glared at Gaster before shuffling away.  Gaster felt the searing pain from his eyesocket to the top of his head where the monster hit him.  He fell onto his knees and stayed there for a minute before hardening his resolve and getting up.  
"We need DETERMINATION to break the barrier..."  Gaster summoned his soul, which had a red crack going through the center, "Well, I've got some of that..  But we need more."
"Hey, Asgore?"  Alphys called through the Dreemurr family's open door.
"Come in, Alphys!"  Asgore's cheerful as ever reply came.
Alphys walked into the house and saw Asgore reading a book on flowers in

Journal History


I'm completely failing ink/palettetober...
I'm just going to draw when I can.  I guess I'll try again next year.
- >WHACK< -

"If you were trying your hardest we would be out on the surface by now!"

Gaster cringed away from the squid monster who just hit him.  "I-I'm sorry...  I'll find a way out soon I'm sure..."

"You keep saying soon!  I want my son to experience the sun!  You need to work harder!"  The squid monster glared at Gaster before shuffling away.  Gaster felt the searing pain from his eyesocket to the top of his head where the monster hit him.  He fell onto his knees and stayed there for a minute before hardening his resolve and getting up.  

"We need DETERMINATION to break the barrier..."  Gaster summoned his soul, which had a red crack going through the center, "Well, I've got some of that..  But we need more."


"Hey, Asgore?"  Alphys called through the Dreemurr family's open door.

"Come in, Alphys!"  Asgore's cheerful as ever reply came.

Alphys walked into the house and saw Asgore reading a book on flowers in front of the fire.  She walked over and sat next to him.  "Okay, so I have this theory I want to try out, where you give someone a type of magic that they don't have, for example, plant based magic for you, and they will be able to use that magic as well as their normal magic.  So you could grow plants, as well as use your natural fire magic.  I'm talking to you about this because I know you love gardering, and if I give you plant based magic, you can grow all sorts of plants easier, I'm sure you'd get good use out of it."

"Oh.  Hmm, I'd be glad to try it out, it can be a bit dificult to grow things outside of the throne room."  Asgore's thoughtful reply came.

"I also want to use magic infused plants, instead of magic from a plant monster, so you can chose any plant species magic you want, not limited by the plant monsters that are alive right now." Alphys informed him.

"In that case, I'd like to have golden flower magic.  Those flowers are my favorite plant.  Thank you, friend, for giving me this opportunity."


"All of you! You've been lazy lately!  You need to work harder, take notes on the barrier, work harder on your theories!  We need to break the barrier as soon as possible!"  Gaster barked at his employees.

Everyone saw the giant crack down his face that wasnt there yesterday, and they had many questions.  But none of them would ask, they were scared of Gaster.  Many of the employees would have quit already if they didn't think Gaster would punish them for doing so.  Gaster was scary.

"We've already been working our hardest, idiot.  Honestlty it'd be better if you killed yourself so someone better could take the position." one ambitious monster muttered under their breath.

"I couldn't leave this world if I wanted to." Gaster asked, looking right into Naraka's eyes.  Nareka stumbled back.

"Anyone have anything else to say?" He made a show of looking around the room even though he knew no one would stand up to him.
"Good.  You are dismissed." Gaster commanded.

No one stuck around.  No one noticed the absence of the squid monster.  It's fine, no one saw.  I'm okay.  They don't know.


As soon as Gaster got back to his lab, he pulled out his old notes on DETERMINATION from back on the surface.  Just looking at his old, shaky, wingdings brought back so many memories he'd like to forget.  He decided to write what he knew, and go from there. 

'I know if you absorbed a soul, the soul would have partial control, so I drained DETERMINATION from a soul and injected it into my own, creating the scar on my soul.  I gained DETERMINATION to stay alive, the only reason I'm alive and all the rest of the sketetons arent.  It also gave me security.  I would not die, I am immortal, like a boss monster.  The downsides?  Sometimes parts of me will drip, normally when I'm injured or losing hope.  So even if my next experiment goes wrong...  I have a saftey net.  I cannot die.

'I have the determination of about half a human soul.  If I could clone myself, we would have a whole soul already.  Fourteen clones could break the barrier.  It's more reasonable to start with two.  Taking a part directly from my soul could be dangerous...  So I need a bone peice to extract my magical signature from. How about my hands?  The individual bones on my palm fused together when they melted once, and that's just about the only solid bone I have other than my skull.  I won't die, so what's the harm in doing it?  Okay.  I'll start tomorrow, so I can set evrything up today.

And with that, he closed up his journal and worked on getting magical stableizer fluid.  


The next day, Alphys stopped by the throne room to grab a couple golden flowers.  Back at the lab, she dropped the flowers off at her office before going to the storage room to get stableizer fluid for the flowers. 

When she got there, she saw Dr. Gaster there, picking up a tank of stableizer fluid himself.  The briefly made eye contact before both leaving, but it was enough time for Alphys to notice the holes in his hands and the scar on his face.  Whatever he did to get it, he probably deserved it, the bigot.  


Gaster collapsed on his chair when he got back to his office.  He hardly ever saw Alphys, even though they both worked in the same building.  He didn't like Alphys.  The first person to really stand up to him.  And he couldn't do anything about it.  Alphys was good friends with Asgore and Toriel, so if Dr. Gaster tried anything, he would surely get fired.  And Alphys was so got at her job, too.  Gaster sometimes thought Alphys would make a better Royal Scientist then himself.  She is dedicated, a hard worker, never fails, everything that Gaster isn't.  She just served to continually show him how much of a falure he was.  He's just lucky she dosen't tell anyone how often he fails at his job, how he's a fraud, and how he treats his employees so badly.  But Gaster built this bed of failure and lies, and now he has to lay in it.  It's easiest to work alone, away from everyone.

I need to stop pitying myself and do work.
Crashing Down - Chapter 1 -
So this is my birthday present to you all, as a big thank you for supporting me this far.  And it's the first chapter of a fanfiction! This is about my AU, Undershaken.  I won't give much information away, since I want to show you guys through the story, but a lot of big events were changed, and some characters switched, or their personalites changed.  It's kinda boring in the begining, but that's because I need to lay down all the framework so the rest of the story makes sense.  The character personalites are very interesting, and Gaster is responsible for a lot of bad things.  As characters are introduced, I'll try to draw references of them, but I probably won't get to that before November, because of Palettetober and all.  I'll try to update this at least once a week, and the chapters will be longer.  

Also, this will be up on AO3 by tomorrow, I think that's a better site for posting fanfictions than deviantART is.

Thank you for getting me this far.  I thank each and every one of you guys.  Also, please leave any feedback, it really does help.
[Day 14] I Support At You!
This was from a thing we talked about in the Soriel Discord server.  We basically decided that supporting at someone is like supporting someone, but more HARCORE.  Has a specifically UNDYNE vibe to it.  Also, today's my birthday, so be on the lookout for a special gift for you guys, as a thank you for supporting me.
Reference for my OC, Elaina
I needed an OC for a while now, and looks like I finally drew her.  She's a witch with a pet cat.  She lives mostly alone, and is kind and resourseful.  Here's a reference for her.  

Also I know I'm supposed to do the Palettetober thing, but it's dificult and I'm running out of Undertale characters to draw.  I think I'm just going to go for Drawtober this year.  Anyway, my birthday is tomorrow, and I have a special present for you guys as a thank you for being here for me.
I Need To Be Their Light
Uhhh  I kinda forgot to do a Palettetober, so here take this.  I'll try to do two Palettetobers tomorow.  So this is a drawing I started in July, but forgot about and finished recently.  I tried to go for a painty feel.  I wasn't sure how to do eyelids without them contrasting too much, so her face looks kinda invisible?  Anyway, this was inspired a bit by Hareka, an OC of Static-P's.  You may know Static-P because he sang the male voice in It's Not Like I Like You, but he also has a song series called Criminal Idol.  It's where somone bombed the stage at the Top Ten Idol Competition, and everyone is trying to figure out who did it.  Hareka is a girl in the  idol group Star Blush Girls.  Remember this is not Hareka, just inspired by her.

Anyway, any feedback is greatly appreiciated, and thank you for reading.
