No longer I pretend
The staircase I descend
Will lead me anywhere but my unscripted end


No longer I defend
The choices I pretend
Could make amends that heal the loss of precious time
My conscience paralyzed
Against the rising tide
Of haunting memories that drown a wasted life

I was listening to Magnum Bullets and this mental image wouldn't leave me alone...

Gaster (c) Undertale: watch that last step, it's a doozy

This is so sad to me... it really shows the development of Gaster's character and his slow descent (pun intended) into the seemingly cold, heartless, and overwhelmed skeleton we all know from hp. I really feel bad for him tbh, and I just want to hug him. His past really messed with him :(

It's interesting how the pillar looks kind of like a spinal collumn.

This is such a neat concept!! And I really love how the stairs look, you did a great job coloring them and making them look (almost) transparent!

First thought: "what a good illustration of depression"
Second thought: "I feel so sorry for that foolish fictional skeleton"
Third thought: "this is really well made"
