For the character meme: Chara!
Thank you for asking! :D
- First impression
Honestly? Neutral and mixed feelings after the True Pacifist end. I thought their friendship with Asriel was very touching, but the fact that they manipulated the latter to kill humans… well, it kind of tainted my vision of them and I did not know what to think of them.
- Impression now
A very complex and interesting character, like every character in Undertale^^! Unfortunately, like Frisk, we do not have that much information about them so they are up to interpretation -which is not bad actually, I personnally like that a lot! And I blame a lot of people like @mintyfreshdoodles, @ask-the-floating-heart and @channydraws -among others but mainly you three!!- who made me love Chara XD
- Favorite moment
*ahem* not a lot of canon moments sadly, but I would pick the moment where Asriel found them and brought them to his family and all those little clues indicating that they were happy with the Dreemurs ;_;
- Idea for a story
…..I’m going to regret telling it I’m sure but here I go, inspired by the story @caretaker-au , Chara becomes the Caretaker of the ruins and one day, they find various things where the humans fall, including a baby carriage. They’re very confused at first and kind of freaks out when they see there is a baby (alive) in there. After a lot of struggle and a long inner monologue, they bring the baby home and call Asriel and his parents for help, have still some mix feelings and feel weak for not being able to kill such an “easy prey” until baby Frisk (see that coming, didn’t you?) gently grasp their hair with a cute babble.
Then, married Charisk trying to raise their new adopted baby, hilarity (?) ensues and a lot of fluff. :p
- Unpopular opinion
Hm… I think that maybe the
Dreemurs were too lenient and kind to Chara? I mean that they must have been a
bit more strict with them, I know some people think (and I agree with
them) that if Asriel had told them how Chara sometimes treated him, things
might have been different.
If Toriel or Asgore had walked on Chara belittling Asriel or obviously being abusive, I wish they had given them a stern lecure or scolded them. Not too violently of course! But just hard enough to make Chara understand that they could NOT get away with manipulating and abusing Asriel, that such things were wrong and that they would have to face them both and the consequences… but it’s hard to tell if it would vae really helped.
I guess that since Monsters’ main need in life is love, the way they raise their children could be very different from humans. Humans have different needs, even if love is one of them too. And it is possible that Chara was mentally unstable/ill, so it must not be an easy task to take care of them; it is quite obvious that the Dreemurs had no idea of Chara’s state of mind and even if they did, did they have the means to treat them?
- Favorite Relationship
Chariskriel! Either as friends or OT3 –if friends, add MK to the group^^!
Or daddy Asgore with Chara, not sure why, but I see Chara as a daddy child. I know the way they speak and behave is more related to Toriel, but I have a feeling they were closer to Asgore. (same with Toriel and Asriel).
- Favorite headcanon
Mind if I put more than one
Chara loved to read fairytales (but hid it) and the reason they went to Mt Ebott was because they hoped they would find their way either down a rabbithole or anything to a better world where they would find somebody to love and who would love them back.
