I was thinking about some previous ideas I’ve had regarding Flowey and his mental health and behavioral issues on the surface, and it got me thinking, man, poor Toriel, too. I was thinking about the thoughts I had before about something setting Flowey off—be it a bad dream or nearly getting hurt or simply some random reminder—and it leading to him compulsively talking about some horrible thing that has happened over the course of his resets (albeit, not really explaining the reset business; moreso something like food burning in the kitchen leading him to talk about what burning alive feels like). This wound up getting linked in my head to a more recent post about him not seeming to comprehend why Toriel acts like she loves him, despite all the trouble he is, and oof is that a rough combo. I can just imagine Toriel’s mind wandering all over as she tries to piece things together, observing over time Flowey’s behavioral problems (as no matter how much better he’s acting than in his later time underground, he can’t suddenly shed his issues), his lapses into talking about death or violence where he himself is frequently the “target”, and now him apparently not understanding being loved, and her mind just being unable to help but come to some awful conclusions about what has to have hurt this child so horrifically as to cause all this.
I'm sorry if your not doing these at the moment but can you please do B1 with Mooching Hobo
