UkaGaster by papercrownprincess UkaGaster by papercrownprincess
Somehow I've become a fan of :iconzarla:'s AU "Handplates", with a particular fondness for the repentant Mercyplates variant, post "beam incident". I'm also a huge fan of her Ukagaka that she's made for Gaster. I'm doing a lot of programming lately and he's fun company to have on my desktop.
Get the UkaGaster here. www.drdowasure.com/gaster/

I know Gaster has done a lot of horrible, terrifying things in Handplates (and had the potential to be even worse), but like Handplates Papyrus, I also like to think he had the capability to change. 

Zarla's Ukagaka of him has the best expressions and behaves so conflicted when you're nice to him for a long time. It's awesome. I really love how much thought Zarla has put into him, and into her Handplates story.

HE CAN'T BE SAVED. HE REFUSES.

Then, Sans pushed him into a lake of InstantErase. Whoops.

How much do you bet that every single one of us were Pacifist Route players in UT? Hurr hurr.

Aaaaaa, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels the way Papyrus does! ;w;
You took the words right out of my mouth about that one, heh. <3
Beautiful anatomy and expression on this piece, by the way! :'D

I'm wondering how/if he'll show up again. We've seen some Handplates stuff where the brothers are talking to Frisk, but so far it looks like Handplates might be headed a genocide route instead. I'm very curious where this story is going.

When he's sleeping like that, I secretly want to do horrible things to him.

You know, like drawing a mustache on his face or sticking a gift bow on his head. ... Hm, are those acts a betrayal of trust?

I blame the sketches of his amazing smile. We all just want him to smile at us like that.

The ukagaster is pretty great! Also this drawing is pretty cute. You did a nice job on the hands; it looks hard to draw from that angle.

They. Were. 

...HECK!

The UkaGaster is pretty great, yeah! I hope Zarla continues to update him and add more. I would personally love the addition of a random "talk to" action that behaves like any of the asks or the ACTs. You know, something that has random dialogue like when you puzzle him or try to kis-- I mean um... 

...sing.

*cough* Yeah, just an action that let's you "talk" to him that's not Confide, you know?

Aw, so adorable! I always want to comfort that poor skeleton! And that's what I'd do if he was real. 
He did many terrible things, but that's exactly why (in my opinion) we should help him. (I'm not sure if I can explain the phylosophy…?)

We've seen that he's had a hard life (that might be putting it lightly) and that at one time he was a very sweet, if a pinch troubled, awkward individual. Through Zarla's creative story telling, we've seen someone who was already a bit broken by no fault of their own then outright destroy themselves in a misguided quest to save everyone else around them (humans exluded, such powerful speciesism wow) because they themselves think they are worth being thrown away to accomplish happiness for others.

He doesn't think he deserves good things, and now he's done so much that no, he really doesn't anymore. The pathway to Hell is paved with good intentions, etc. And yet, he is a broken soul that we would still like to save. 

HELP I AM RAMBLING

A "ramble" that was worth it. But yeah, those are exactly my thoughts. Deep down there's still his good self, which just has to (somehow) be reached to. Gaster definitely cannot be called "evil" like some people uncorrectly call him. He's an originally good person who endured too many bad things and as consequence unlearned to make the right choices.

I understand, you know.
People out in the world are broken. Sometimes, they were broken due to unfair circumstances. Sometimes they suffer abuse, heartbreak, grief, neglect, despair and loneliness... over and over again. And it's because of their broken nature that those people, in turn, break others around them -- because those who were broken in the first place don't know how to have positive interactions with other people. Being broken, hurt and abused is all they know. Those who are broken only know pain... and so they hurt others, just as they had been hurt.
This is the only thing I can think of that explains Gaster's situation. In Handplates, Gaster dealt with loss and grief on a tremendous scale, (presumably) had an abusive relationship with his parents, watched as his entire race was wiped out before his eyes.... All of those are unfair circumstances. He didn't ask for those things to happen; they just happened. He just had a big stroke of misfortune on his side. 
This also partially explains why he did what he did to Sans and Papyrus -- why he called Sans useless and weak, why he called Papyrus stupid, why he tortured them.... He hurt them for the sake of the experiments, sure -- but he also hurt them because somebody else hurt him in the first place
It's a cycle of pain. Someone hurts an individual, and then that individual goes on to hurt someone else... and the cycle repeats... over and over....
Until someone stops it.
Hence why a lot of people want to help Gaster. Deep down, he's hurting, and a lot of people want to reach out to him because of that pain. 
(Phew, that's one long reply. Hope it makes sense!!!)
