based on the #momplates route of @zarla-s handplates web series. Although some like to speculate that in this scenario Toriel took the boys, I’d imagine it was a forced handover with supervised visits until Toriel can train Gaster up into being a good daddy. Too bad he never gets the chance.
On a hilltop about a mile from Doagh is a Bronze Age whinstone megalith known as The Holestone. Couples used to promise marriage by clasping hands through the hole in the stone, a convention that can be traced back to about 1830. It has been suggested that the stone was used in ancient times for aphrodisiac purposes. Even today, newlyweds, together with the wedding party, will visit the stone in observance of the ancient local custom.
