I just know Asgore has a copy of this in New Home. I’ve read sections of this book many times, it may be outdated and not the best source, given that the Internet is up to date, has far more information, and can be searched faster.

Still, Asgore would probably enjoy a book like this, something to take his mind off the war he started in a fit of anger, the duty he has to keep up people’s hopes… A book to open other than the scrapbooks with the images of his happy family… Toriel, back when she loved him and did not think he was a disgusting coward for his angry outburst…. Asriel, back before they died…. Chara….. Back when there was a peaceful happy future for humans and monsters and hope in their eyes instead of that hollow sunken look of death….

Now he surrounds himself with golden flowers, the thing that he couldn’t get Chara before they died, the flower that bloomed when his wife left him, that flower growing in the garden, the place Asriel collapsed and died in.

He doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He doesn’t want power. He doesn’t want to become a God and kill all the humans, he just wants to make everyone happy again, he just wants his son, his adopted human child, his wife, his family…..

All he has left is gardening and looking at old mementos of when he had a happy family, even when they were trapped underground.

I have a tiny porch, so it’s a struggle finding space for plants. Unlike my upstairs neighbors who have railings for their balconies, here on the ground floor, I’m stuck with a screen that doesn’t afford me anything onto which to hang a pot. But, hang on… I’ve got a little ledge I can do something with!

This is super simple and cheap to do (under $20 for me). Materials:

  • good quality 1x2 - it cannot split on the 1-inch side!
  • measuring tape & pencil
  • saw, or someone to make 1 cut for you
  • 2 or more c-clamps
  • pots (I used Ikea’s bygel cups, since they are only $1, a fantastic size, and have a great lip for hanging)
  • hammer & nails
  • plants!
  • optional: stain or paint

All you’re doing is clamping a piece of wood to the porch frame in order to have something to screw hardware into. I used 4″ C-clamps for this project, but 3″ probably would have worked.

Choose your 1x2 carefully, as you don’t want it to split when you hammer nails into the side! Also, if you don’t have a saw or don’t want to make the cut yourself, most hardware store will do it for you.

If you don’t have cups like these, you could also install hooks and drill holes into a plastic pot – just make sure it’s strong enough!
