Monster, jack-o-lantern and a moving related one - Haunted House :D
Monster: What is your favorite scary movie to watch in the dark?
LISTEN, ALL OF THEM.
ALL OF THEM!
It’s a trick question cause I like, constantly watch horror movies, and if they’re not only just on for bg noise I’m always watching them in the dark.
Some candidates: The Changeling, Pet Sematary, The Woman in Black, American Werewolf in London.
Jack-o’-lantern: Do you have any scars? If so, how many?
I have a ton of small ones because I have dermatophagia and dermatillomania (don’t open those links the pictures are gross LMAO!). Bigger ones are like, one over my eyebrow from when I hit my head on the wooden arm of a couch when I was 5 and needed stitches, and there’s one on my scalp from when I got assaulted in middle school and had my head bashed open on a locker and needed staples. That one you can’t see very often cause it’s under my hair, but occasionally my hair parts over it and you can see, and when I had a mohawk for a couple years I could see it!
Haunted House: If you could be roommates with anyone of your choice, who would you pick?
OMG LIKE CAN I JUST KEEP GUSHING ABOUT HOW EXCITED I AM THAT I DON’T NEED ROOMMATES AT MY NEW PLACE? MY FIRST TIME LIVING COMPLETELY ALONE!!!!!! But uh. It’s hard to say. Can we have like a VC fandom compound? :D
Any chance we could get some Gasters proposing? (LOVE THE BLOG BTW accidentally on purpose just read the whole thing)
- He plans the entire thing out months ahead of time - Writes freaking notecards and everything - He wants it to be sweet, romantic, and absolutely perfect - One evening, he takes you to your special spot at the local park: a partially hidden alcove that only you two seem to know about - It seems like a regular picnic date - But this time he’s brought expensive wine, and is that cologne you smell? - Maybe he just felt like being fancy - You don’t give it much thought until he quietly takes your hand and reaches inside his coat - He’s ready to give the speech he’d prepared, but now that the moment is here… - His mind’s gone blank - He spends a minute or two sweating and struggling for words, and he looks like he’s about to give up - Until you squeeze his hand and ask what’s wrong - He abandons his original plan and pulls out the ring box - It’s the most stuttery, tearful proposal you’ve ever seen - And it’s perfect
He’s unusually blunt about it - One day, while you’re both drinking your morning coffee, he suddenly asks your opinion on marriage - In the Underground, it hadn’t much of a purpose beyond politics or alliances - So the idea of a union out of actual love sounds…nice - But he doesn’t tell you that part - Gaster? Admitting he has feelings? Prepostrous - He seems satisfied when you react positively to the question - Right then and there he says that he’d like to get married - You inform him that, while it’s not necessary, it’s customary to propose with a ring and a bit more than “let’s get married” - It’s meant as a joke, and you happily accept - The very next day he comes home late from work with a ringbox - He says he’d like to try the proposal again, even though you’ve already said yes - This time he admits that being with you has changed him for the better - He wouldn’t be nearly as happy without the support you’ve given him - And he’s greatly looking forward to spending the rest of his life in your company
- He succeeds where UT fails - It’s like something straight out of a romance novel - A trail of rose petals lead you to the river by his cave - There are candles floating on the water, and a full bouquet where the petal trail ends - He’s somewhere nearby, though you can’t pick him out from the shadows - Must be nervous - You pick up the flowers, noting that they’re your favorites, and wait - At last, you feel a presence behind you - You turn to see he’s already gotten down on one knee - His hood is back, and is face is deceptively calm - But you notice how the ringbox rattles in his shaky hands - His words are heartfelt, beautiful, and a tad cheesy - It’s so him - Who could refuse? - This isn’t his first marriage, but it’s the first in many centuries - He knows it’ll only hurt more in the long run - So he’ll cherish every year you have together, no matter how short
- You’re attending yet another royal ball of some sort - Gaster’s in his gaudiest suit, and you’re dressed up in some expensive outfit he’d bought you just for tonight - You two spend hours dancing, talking, and having a great time - Around midnight, he leads you to the gardens outside - It’s nice to get away from the crowd and be out under the stars - It comes as no surprise when he stares wistfully at the sky, and you join him - But as you look closer, you see that the stars seem to have moved - They’ve spelled out your name - Reasonably shocked, you look down at Gaster to see him grinning, blushing, and holding a ring - The diamond on it is huge - No expenses were spared, as per usual - He points back up at the sky - The stars have shifted again - ‘Marry me?’ - He can’t help but squeal like a schoolgirl when you say yes
- His kind doesn’t have marriages, but they can bind to each other by becoming soulmates - He’s hurt when you don’t seem excited about his ‘proposal’ - But it’s not long before he realizes you just don’t know what he’s talking about - He explains that each of you breaks off a piece of your soul and puts in in the other’s - It’s not as painful as it sounds - It would give him a greater telepathic connection with your mind in particular, meaning you could communicate from up to a mile away - Each of you would always know if the other was in pain or depressed - There may even be other cool effects - He has no idea; to his knowledge no monster has ever been soul bonded with a human - The process only takes a minute, but you still give vows and such beforehand - Which ends with kissing the bride mer-monster - Taking a piece from your soul doesn’t hurt, but it does feel pretty weird - Like jumping into icy water - But once a fragment of Gaster’s soul replaces the one you lost, everything feels warm
