Wingdings Gaster had ideas.
Many, many ideas, really. It was difficult to get an approximation as to how many flitted through his mind in a given day, but one could very easily assume the number, statistically speaking, was…well, far above average. Usually at least two or three of these ideas were jotted down before breakfast – having seemingly materialized in his mind sometime during the dead of night from lord knows where – and, by the afternoon, had garnered empirical support over just a single pot of tea and a brisk walk about town.
