Entry xx
I have artificially created life. I have done it so, so many times that the allure is now wearing thin.
Of course, I still have much to do with the monsters in my care - many more experiments on my roster to try. However, even with my "children" to keep me company, it still feels a little lonely around here. My creations are not, as humans would say, of my own blood.
Recently I've found myself longing for a baby bones of my own, to raise and love. Maybe to one day assist me in - or to carry on - my work.
Sadly that's never going to happen by natural means. My soul is too different, too unique to be compatible with most other monsters.
But I will find a way.

Entry xx
Success! I have been able to extract a fragment of my soul. The 'Life Support Solution’ is keeping it stable for now, but it will require some "encouragement" before it can develop.
However, it can wait. For now I need to rest...

Entry xx
My soul seems to be healing nicely by itself. There doesn't appear to be any permanent damage done, though granted, that still remains to be seen.
I've modified the extracted fragment with the same kind of magical framework I use for creating new monster souls from scratch, and so far it seems to have taken quite well. Time will tell of course, but it's certainly a promising sign.

Entry xx
The fragment is developing quicker than I anticipated. At this rate, I expect it to manifest a body sometime soon. I can't wait to see what my new child looks like. I wonder how much of my appearance they'll retain.

Entry xx
NO! No no no! How can this be?! The new soul cracked in two right before my very eyes! This is an unmitigated disaster, and yet, the pieces still linger, still glowing.
Maybe... Maybe I can still salvage this situation yet...

Entry xx
Curious. The pieces are not only surviving, they're actually thriving. If things carry on in this manner, they may -both- form brand new souls.
This is certainly a new development. I've had many souls crack before, however they were malformed souls, unable to sustain life.
I shouldn't allow myself to get my hopes up this time.

Entry xx
I continue to be amazed by this project. I now have two new complete souls from that one small fragment. However it has not escaped my attention that one of them glows considerably weaker than the other. This comes as no surprise as the split was not equal and this is the smaller of the two.
Regardless, I've since isolated it to a tank of its own, both to give the other more room to grow, and to give it a little extra attention.
Maybe a few alterations might help perk it up a bit.

Entry xx
I know I told myself not to get my hopes up after that earlier incident, but it's hard not to at this point. The larger of the two has formed a body! A tiny skeleton body; a miniature version of my own.
I haven't been this excited to see an artificially created monster manifest in years. Not since I took over as the royal scientist.
In addition, the smaller soul is glowing far stronger now.
Of course, I'm very much aware that this could still turn sour without warning, but I should also still prepare for the pitter patter of -two- sets of tiny feet.

Entry xx
Things just keep looking up. The smaller soul has formed a body, albeit smaller than that of his brother's. Yes, they appear to both be little boy skeletons, though that should come as no surprise given my own gender.
I remain concerned for the little one. While he still glows strong, he doesn't move around much, particularly when compared to the larger one.
He may just be a little slow, however.

Entry xx
I'm currently debating how to inform His Majesty of the arrival of my children. He will find out eventually but Asgore isn't aware of my other ‘projects’.
He's yet to visit this area of the lab, and I'd like it to stay that way. Despite his fearsome appearance, he really is the biggest softie I've ever met. I'm not sure he would approve of what I do down here. He wouldn't understand the necessity, even if I could find a way to break the barrier in the process.
I can't see him approving of my boys' creation.
I have time however.

Entry xx
It's high time I gave my boys names. I didn't even think about it until now, with all the others being given project numbers. Obviously that's not going to be appropriate for these two.
Naming is harder than I imagined. These are names they’re going to be living with for the rest of their lives after all.

Entry xx
After some deliberation I have finally settled on suitable names. The larger, stronger child I have named Papyrus, while the smaller one feels more like a Sans to me. It follows the naming convention my own parents gave me, though I will admit, I was never very fond of my first name.
Papyrus is becoming a lot more active now. He follows my movements around the room, and reaches out for my hand whenever I hold it to the polycarbonate tank. He seems very interested in the world around him, which is a stark contrast to his brother.
Sans is so lethargic, I'm not entirely sure I didn't just put a stringless marionette in there by mistake. If it wasn't for the persistent glow of his soul and the tank registering healthy vitals I might be more worried, but he seems stable enough for now.

Entry xx
Today I took Papyrus from his tank.
As expected he's adapting to the outside world really well. His boundless curiosity is just as prevalent, if not more so than it had been inside the tank. I can see I'm going to have to keep a close eye on that in the future. There's so much trouble an inquisitive baby skeleton could get in to in a laboratory such as this.
Interestingly, what grabs Papyrus’ interest the most seems to be his brother. He regularly looks towards the tank, reaching out and gurgling animatedly. However I daren't remove Sans just yet. He's still too weak and the change of pressure might be too much of a shock to his system.

Entry xx
I've made some interesting discoveries about my boys in the few days since Papyrus left his tank. Most notably is how much Sans’ condition improves the closer his brother is to him.
As a result, I've moved Papyrus’ cot down here and set it up next to Sans’ tank.
Since then, Sans has become considerably more active. Though his attention is usually centred on Papyrus - just as Papyrus' is on him - he has been displaying some interest in me and other things around him. That's good, though there's something about the way he looks at you. Something that cuts down to your very core. If I didn't know any better I’d say he was trying to look straight into my soul.
I told him his gaze was bone-chilling and to my surprise he actually smiled at me. He couldn't possibly have understood the words at such a young age, which leads me to believe there's still something linking our souls together.
Or I could be reading too deep into this and it's merely a coincidence.

Entry xx
After continued observation and a few un-invasive experiments, I've concluded that there is a link of some sort between our three souls.
I've also concluded that link is stronger between the two of them than it is with me. They favour each other over me, which is not entirely a surprise, as their link appears to go both ways. With me it seems to be just one way; they can tell exactly where I am in the room even when they can't see me, however I cannot do the same with them. I can't feel their presence in the same way they are apparently able to feel mine.
I can't deny I'm disappointed. It would've been a great opportunity to study this phenomenon from a first-hand perspective. Still, I must remember this is not what I created these two for. They are my children, not my science projects.

Entry xx
Sans seems to be getting a little anxious to be out of the tank. His vitals have improved to the point where he could feasibly survive outside of the LSS, but I'm still a little wary about how he'll cope. I don't want to lose him, yet at the same time I hate to see the two of them in such distress when they so desperately want to be close to one another.
I will give it one more night and see how Sans is tomorrow.

Entry xx
To my relief, Sans survived the transition with little complication. For now I've decided to keep the two of them in the same cot to pleasing results.
After a short, initial period of scrutinizing each other, both have finally settled down and started to act like proper babies – or rather, how I imagine proper babies should act.
They’re not constantly staring at each other anymore and seem more relaxed now there’s not a pane of polycarbonate between them. They do, however, cry profusely if they are removed from each others’ line of sight. Not a particularly big problem right now, but it could get complicated in the future if they don't grow out of it.

Entry xx
The boys have grown a fair bit since my last log. Are... are babies -supposed- to grow that quick? For that matter when do they learn to talk? Learn to walk?
Oh God, they've only just learnt to crawl and already I've got my work cut out trying to keep the curious little buggers from coming to any harm. I haven't been able to get nearly half as much work done as I usually do.
Clearly I wasn’t as ready for children as I thought I was. Even with all the resources I have to hand, I still can't find any solid guidelines to work with. Everyone has different ideas on how best to raise them and I can't get my head around them. It's nothing like taking care of the senseless beasts I'm used to raising.
And to add to the crisis, Asgore called today, concerned that I haven't been attending any meetings lately.
I told him work has been keeping me tied to the lab and he insisted on coming down to see me instead.
I think I've bitten off more than I can chew...
I didn't have anything planned to upload for Father's Day initially, but I figured it's a pretty apt time to tease the project I'm working on on.
Though, I guess tease isn't really the right word given that I've got just over 3 pages of content here because it was difficult to decide where to stop.

These are basically a collection of entries Revenantale!Gaster made from the time he created the SkeleBros, til the time he... was no longer able to make entries XD;
They're still a work in progress, written first and foremost to help me keep track of Revenantale!SkeleBros history, but I'm planning to turn them into a comic of sorts when Curiousity is done.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dadsters out there!
