As for Hitler it was suicide not treason that brought his enterprise to its end. He himself had incarnated it and himself terminated it. So as not be bound Prometheus cast himself into the abyss. Germany profoundly seduced followed her Fuehrer ecstatically. Until the very end she was to serve him slavishly with greater exertions that any people has ever furnished ever any leader. Hitler`s attempt was superhuman and inhuman. He maintained it without stint,without respite. Until the final hours of agony in the depths of a Berlin bunker, he remained it unquestioned, inflexible, pitiless, as he had ben duaring his days of supreme glory. For the terrible greatness of his conflict and his memory, he had chosen never to hesitate, compromise or retreat. The Titan who tries to lift the world can nether bow nor bend.
Does Asriel have a role in this au? Does Asgore still do something to make Toriel want to leave? Sorry for the questions, it's just super interesting so I was curious OwO
I’m still tossing up Asriel’s role, since it would make sense that he’d be a god as well– or at least a titan bwaha. Maybe he’s the equivalent of Prometheus, the titan who gave mankind “fire”? Of course, Zeus wasn’t very pleased with that and punished him– so perhaps Asgore had banished Asriel? To Asgore, humans had “stolen” his son– because his son had betrayed him for them.
And Asriel’s love for humans could have been from Toriel, who created them. So when Asgore banished him, it would have rightly ticked her off as well lol.
My original plan was that Toriel, having so much love to give, created many “humans” and wasn’t going to stop. Asgore and Gerson, God of Wisdom (shoutout to @yizukikhons for that casting ;D) would have realised that this was creating an imbalance in the world, and would have decided that “Death” should be created in order to keep Toriel in balance. Gaster, God of Magic, would have been the one to create Death.
Obviously, Toriel was infuriated with this and saw this as betrayal, and would have none of it. She left the realm of the gods before Death could be created–and therefore has not properly met Sans and Papyrus–to descend into the now mortal realm and go into hiding, out of fury for Asgore and those she saw “betrayed” her. Plus, Asgore already banished Asriel–how dare he take away the rest of her children too?
Asgore would be very bitter of the humans after this– not only did they take away his wife, but (if we go on from the Asriel as Prometheus casting), they also took his son as well. Imagine Asgore telling newly created Sans and Papyrus to reap the humans affected by his plague/famine etc., and that was the first experience/job they had to do. Sans’s first outlook of death was suffering and he became pessimistic and cold, and Papyrus became traumatised to the point that he could no longer reap unwilling souls lest it remind him of his first horrors?
