I watched some Undertale fan videos for the past few days, and... one of them hit me like a brick.

It wasn't the Genocide route... if I ever play the game, I won't go there.
It wasn't the Neutral, or even the Pacifist ending.

The video showed afterwards.

Actually, there were three that hit me hard. (To make it easier to type, I will refer to Frisk in masculine, even if it's hard to tell what gender he or she really is.)

One showed events six weeks after the True Pacifist ending, after the barrier is lifted. The focus is on Sans, who still has trouble letting go of his nihilistic idea that Frisk would just end up causing a 'Reset' and everything would go back to how it was before. He essentially loses all composure and breaks down in front of Frisk, asking desperately when Frisk would 'Reset' everything... and Frisk simply replies that he won't anymore before giving Sans a kiss on the forehead.

The second and third are... kind of linked. It also takes place after the True Pacifist ending, but shows a battle-scarred Frisk. One has Frisk and Flowey wait for a bus to go back home, but Frisk lets it go by. Flowey says that the next bus will take twenty minutes to arrive, and Frisk seems okay about it. He then explains that he likes it when it's quiet for two reasons: one, it's always noisy at home, and he's always laughing... and two, he can't keep acting like he can't remember the past 'Resets'. He then asks Flowey for some quiet, to which the latter pulls out a handheld game console and starts playing.

The other focuses on Frisk and Sans. While Sans is glad and happy to see the outside world... Frisk isn't. When Sans tries to comfort him, he finds out that Frisk not only remembers every past 'Reset', but that he's traumatized for everything that happened... and that Frisk's timeline will soon end. Sans first tries to tell him that it'll be okay, only to be pushed away, until he finally figures that he and Frisk have the same problem - they remember, while everyone did not. To keep everyone else safe (and because he cares too much for everyone to 'Reset' to save his life)... Frisk uses the knife on himself, in front of a Sans who is too late to stop him.

I know that anime and video games often depict young hero characters fighting to fix mistakes of past generations, but... what happens when a hero completes his or her quest? What about the battle-scars and the painful memories of losing friends and family, or those of killing? Can children really erase something so serious as death from their minds?

I think the most impact-filled moment in a story that I remember now is in the last minutes of the last Lord of the Rings movie, when Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin are sitting at the Green Dragon Inn, looking at each other silently before lifting their pints to a silent toast. That moment said it all: each bore their scars, and each one changed. The battle was over, but... life would never really be the same.

I'm... honestly not sure what to add, so one last question for everyone: if you had the same ability as Frisk - to 'Reset' events up to a specific moment in time -, would you?

For ShadowFrost1's trade by YurixTheWanderer
For ShadowFrost1's trade
ShadowFrost1 asked me a while back to draw a before/after transformation of one of his characters into a woman wearing an angel-wing scarf (essentially, the scarf becomes a pair of wings). I decided to up the ante and make the scarf full-fledged wings along the way.

I think the hardest part wasn't the wings, but the female form's fly-away hair.

If I must fight... by YurixTheWanderer
If I must fight...
I have done a battle pose for Karyana before, but it had some flaws. This time around, I decided to draw Lady Xera in a battle pose of her own, with a different angle than normal.

If you think that the right-side leg is skinny compared to the other... it's because it's not her leg, but rather a cloth fold. She only has one leg that's uncovered.

A few days ago, while I was admiring some artwork at the subway station 'Place-Des-Arts', I started thinking: if Karyana saw it through her own eyes, what would she think?

See, there's a bit part of my story that I'm missing. Sure, Karyana - trapped in our time - would do everything she could to find her friends and look for a way back to her world, but... there's one thing that got me bothered: how her world was born on the ashes of this one.

I mean, sure, we do terrible things like mass murders, accelerated extinction of animal races and are screwing up the weather and ourselves in the meantime, but... not all things humans do are bad. We created (and preserved) monuments, made many different art forms, found inspiration in nature and one another...

I remember an episode of Futurama where Fry and Leilah were trapped in a perpendicular timeline - meaning that they were growing older, but everything else was perfectly still. In the last few minutes, after Fry failed to fix the machine that put them in that state, the two decide to travel the world together, experiencing everything the planet has to offer in what we normally would experience in the blink of an eye.

Another thing I remember was in Megamind, where Metro Man, during a battle with Megamind, had an epiphany: that he didn't want to always to do the same thing for the rest of his life. In his hyper-speed (thus experiencing time in super-slow motion), he returned to class and studied, and figured a loophole to make everyone believe that he had died.

Given that Karyana will reclaim the stolen powers of Panyus - the Planar of Time - from Volkram, I was wondering if something like that could be a good idea. Some sort of epiphany within a fraction of a second in which she finds out what she truly wants for herself, and for the world.

Depending on the nature and complexity, it may become an art trade or a commission. Are you okay with that?
