the snowman feels

In the dark
I measured the space that you left for me
By reaching my arms out to the sides
I hold them out in front
I can feel countless memories
That form like crystals around my fingers
The sparkling crust of love
And I become the snowman
That we built on the winter lawns
And I am you
Who in your absence has become ever-present
Even though I will never stand before you
And see your laughing face again

about post/156368166126... if you abort a genocide run by sparing papyrus (or not fulfilling requirements prior to that fight) after getting the "useless pile of snow" line, sans still says you made the snowman happy if you have a snow piece in your inventory at the end of a neutral route. Any thoughts on this? Does the "useless pile of snow" still have emotions? is it/him/whatever pronoun somehow relieved that Frisk decided to take some of it to the surface (or what have you)?

(undertale spoilers)

Follow up to: is the snowman in Snowdin Forest a monster or something different?

This seems to be more of an oversight than the pile of snow still having emotions. Here are a few reasons why.

First, the code specifically checks whether the Snowman Piece is in your inventory and that you have not killed Papyrus. If both these conditions are true, then you will get the “you made a snowman really happy” line, as long as you don’t meet the conditions for the other call openings. There is no check for the flag that counts how many pieces of the snowman you have taken.

Second, the snowman will be angry with you if the pieces were eaten in front of them in the neutral route. He holds this grudge even when the barrier is open.

When the snowman is destroyed and left as “a useless pile of snow,” it seems to be a clear statement that the snowman is no more. Furthermore, Papyrus’ call in the snowman’s room is not updated to acknowledge that the snowman has been reduced to a pile of snow.

However, if this really is not an oversight and the snowman truly is sentient despite having been reduced to a pile, there is some sense here. After all, the snowman is able to feel if the piece has been taken care of. 

Perhaps, the snowman piece that continues existing with Frisk is still able to feel happy about exploring the whole underground. As for how Sans would know the piece is still fine… Well, Sans does know more than he lets on.

Hey, John, Do You Remember?
Hey, John, Do You Remember?

so i did a feelsy sherlock/frozen cross over instead of homework

Sherlock:

Hey, John, do you remember?

When we first met at St. Barts?

And how I deduced that you went to war,

And so much more,

It really is an art!

You said it was fantastic.

Boy did it feel great,

To hear someone say those things.

Hey, John, do you remember?

I really wish you would remember.


John:

I remember, Sherlock.


Sherlock:

Then I’ll keep going.


Sherlock:

Hey, John, do you remember?

All those mysteries that we solved?

The hound with big eyes that glow,

Or when I didn’t know,

How the planets revolved!

(We go around the sun?)

I miss our time together,

More than you can see,

There is something I want to say-


Sherlock:

John?

Did you ever wonder?

If we could’ve been more than friends?

But how could you love me, how could anyone?

After all I’ve done,

The pain I can’t mend.

I wish I could have realized,

Just a bit sooner,

All that you mean to me.

Hey, John, do you remember?


John:  You’re too late.

Christmas Eremin headcanons cuz i’m feeling festive

alright, let’s go with this modern au college eremin i’ve been cooking up. 

let’s goooooo: 

- cooking. shit, cooking. you think armin’s a cook, NO, it’s Eren. He ditches class to make sure his goddamn cookies are just right for his goddamn boyfriend. he makes a temporary truce with jean so he can use his sudent apartment, and chaos ensues because jean thinks eren’s burning them, but eren argues armin likes them that way (fun fact: he fucking does). 

-SNOWMAN? I dunno, I feel like Eren would be more into it than Armin, but Armin doth indulge in childish things. besides, it’s worth getting cold and red-faced cuz eren just seems so damn happy. plus…

-afterwards lots of goddamn cuddling under a blanket and watching shows they’d been planning to watch but never gotten around to during the semester. 

-Eren is a poet too, he’s got a poetry book he reads and when he finds one he thinks armin will like, he bookmarks it, and then he makes armin read it to him cuz he likes to hear him talk and he likes to hear his favorite poems read by armin. 

-assuming they go home for christmas, and it’s not a huddled wreck of a hometown ravaged by titans, armin stays over at eren’s place

-he is summarily welcomed by the jaegers

-snowball fight, mikasa decimates, armin runs inside cuz he can’t win, and eren tries but gives up because his face starts to freeze off from being hit too much 

-shiganshino blanket cuddle like when they were younger, every year, until they die, fight me 

-on christmas day, armin and eren make a big deal out of opening presents and make everyone uncomfortable with how weirdly intimate they make it out to be. 

-like slowly pulling ribbons or looking each other in the eye, and mikasa eventually just lies down and takes a nap because GUYS, you are not alone

-Armin wraps his presents super carefully and perfectly, like, not a single crease or bunched up corner

-Eren throws shit in a bag, a box, or wraps it with bubblewrap, he’s THAT guy

-Mikasa makes Armin wrap her gifts

-Eren buys expensive shit, Armin buys meaningful shit, and Mikasa MAKES meaningful shit…possibly with expensive shit 

-group hug, get the camera

-they watch something stupid like…A Christmas Story, or Elf, and they watch it every year

-maybe the Santa Clause? 

-COCOA, Mikasa drinks hers like a Spartan, Armin sips at his and just likes the heat, Eren’s like an amped up small child after like one cup 

-Christmas dinner, Eren and Armin chatter so much that Jaeger Dad is like, you’ve been together all year and you’re just talking to each other, how have you not run out of things to say 

-at night, Armin sneaks into Eren’s room, and yes sometimes it’s the opposite way around, and they enjoy the holidays most when they’re cuddling in eren’s bed, yo. 

-that’s what the holidays are about, so i’m told

-the spirit of CARING and love, and last time i checked, that’s what eremin was all about, so they OWN this season, guys.
