“See that heart? That is your soul! The very culmination of your being!”
It all started a year ago. I was starting the new semester, but I was having a hard time adjusting. I had moved states away from my hometown and I wasn’t having much luck keeping in contact with my friends from high school. It don’t help that I was pretty much a shy meerkat, so making new friends was more difficult to do. I ended up spending a lot of time alone and block out my loneliness by keeping my mind distracted, whether it’s going out for walks, drawing, baking, or playing video games.
That’s when I fell into the world of Undertale. It was mainly out of curiosity. Of course I never would have imagined what would come of it.
After the shocking intro from Flowey, I meet Toriel and begin to fall in love with the world that I’ve found myself in. Sure it was surprising when I was taught that I can simply talk out of fights instead of fighting, but I was quickly over it and was continued on the strategy throughout the rest of the game. Every monster I met had their own charm to them that I found endearing, every place was beautiful to see, and I was overwhelmed with happiness.
Of course there were times where I ended up getting killed, but when I came back, I simply continued to be merciful. Even after what happened to Asgore and Flowey, I refused to kill anyone.
After completing the pacifist route, I found myself crying, but the good kind. When I returned to school, I found myself a bit braver than before. If I could, I would personally hug every monster I had met and thanked them for this amazing journey and for teaching me to stay determined.

I came here from Romania when I was 12 years old. I had an accent. High school was tough a little bit for a few years. I wanted to fit in. I wanted to be liked. I wanted to be good-looking. I wanted to be popular. I spent a lot of time thinking, ‘What are these people going to think of me?’
