October marks the 26th anniversary of George Michael’s exhilarating pop anthem “Freedom! ‘90.” For the song’s music video, the former Wham! teen star turned gay icon famously shunned the spotlight, and instead, chose to feature the biggest supermodels of the decade, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell, lip-syncing his lyrics.

So, what better way to pay tribute to the “Freedom! ‘90” anniversary than by making our own modernized version of its iconic video?

Let's have a bit of a chat.

Hello everyone, your Mod Anna has noticed a common trend in the past year that has hit many Undertale related blogs and has hit Underline as well. That trend being fans attacking said blogs for not interpreting characters ‘properly’ and therefore ‘ruining’ their image or anything associated with it.

Now, I know that the characters of Undertale are extremely important for some, but we all have to remember some more important things. Attacking/harassing/or having any ill will towards someone for having a different view of a fictional character from a video game is ridiculous. There is no rhyme or reason for behaviour like this. The person being attacked is every the human you are and if you have an ‘issue’ with their interpretations, here are some things you can do instead of deciding to ruin their day for the sake of ‘winning’ an argument or whatever the intention behind venom filled words are:

1. Move On - It’s Not Worth It

For the sake of example, let’s say your jimmies get rustled over something like a non canon couple and let’s say you don’t like it. Keep scrolling and continue on through your search or dash. You are accomplishing absolutely nothing by expressing your disgust whether it be through reblog, comment, or messaging the creator of the post directly. If you don’t want to see it in the future there are tumblr addons that can block posts and tags. Don’t be a nuisance or a jerk for the sake of being one, nobody likes either of those things. 

You’re also going to have to accept that not everyone likes what you like and will do as they please if they so desire to. This goes for both parties. If you are being harassed, don’t give into their stupidity. Block them, report them, do what you must to cut them out of your life.

It’s that simple. We are a species of limited time, and none of it should be wasted on spewing venom or taking that venom in. 

2. Remember your Boundaries  -  You Are Not “God’s Word” 

Undertale is truly a phenomenon. Never before have I seen a fandom so creative with Alternate Universes popping out almost daily and the fanart is so aplenty I can’t even keep up anymore. With that in mind, we all must remember that Undertale and Undertale’s characters/settings/music/ect belong to Toby Fox and unless Toby has outrightly confirmed or denied something about the entirety of Undertale, there’s not need to attack someone for their headcanon. On that note, even if they’re going against canon, it’s still very foolish to get upset at over something that really doesn’t concern you, because it doesn’t. 

There are no Undertale police and no enforcers of what you should be writing/drawing/creating therefore, there is no ‘law’ all fans of Undertale need to be abiding by. If there was, how do you think we would have gotten so many great AUs that so many of us love an adore? 

No one’s (But Toby’s) opinion/creation = the law, that includes yours, mine, and everyone else’s.

3. WWPD - What Would Papyrus Do?

Exactly.

Also, let’s not forget that when a game that promotes love, acceptance, and other warm fuzzies completely loses its appeal to those who only see its representation through overbearing fans who tear others down instead of building them up. Nobody gains anything with the wrong attitude and hurting others for the sake of a video game goes completely against what I feel Toby Fox was trying to convey with Undertale. Even in the Genocide route, you are clearly shown that your actions will have consequences in the long run. Being a jerk online means nothing and will not pay off in the slightest. Being kind and respectful speaks in volumes, whilst the other side of the coin will get you nowhere fast.


So everyone, this is not just from me, but from the entire Underline staff, please stop the practice of attacking people for their fan projects. This doesn’t just apply to Undertale, but any other popular media out there. 

If you have a question about something in the comic that you’re confused about, then by all means, the ask box is only a few clicks away. Dusty and Tem do their absolute best to be creative with the medium and characters while sticking to canon. Most of Underline takes place in a grey area - meaning not very much is known about it, so creative freedom is something they have a lot more of. All we ask is that you sit back, enjoy the ride, and be civil. 

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day.
