An Open Letter To A Person I Admire
Please excuse me, I am socially anxious.
I have never really spoken to a celebrity before. I don't want to come off as the crazy fan they'd dread.
Now, here's the thing. While when I was in school I rarely had people who accepted me for who I am. Undertale gave me the acceptance I rarely had. An artist makes art of their own interpretation, people who make AUs tell their own story. People come up with their own theories about things in Undertale. In a way, where my differences got me hated at school, they're loved in the Undertale community. Game fandoms do like seeing variety from art to song covers etc.
When Sans tells me in the game someone cares about me, It reminded me of when I was in the 9th grade and though so hard about ending it all, due to the constant bullying I faced. How my friends did everything they can to make sure I was alright. Sans was right, someone does care about me. Even if you don't think no one cares, someone somewhere does.
When Undyne tells Alphys that she doesn't have to lie about what she liked, that Undyne didn't really care about what Alphys liked. Kinda told me that I don't have to lie about what I watched on TV, liked. I don't have to watch something just for someone to like me. I had pretended to like soccer to get closer to a friend who does like the sport. I didn't have anyone tell me they don't care that I like X. That they don't like me because of X, that they like me because of Y.
After that message, Undyne gave I was like you know I like to watch shows from my childhood/teens years so what?
Undnye hates you at first. In A funny away Papyrus gets her to give you a chance. And she ends up liking you. Even though I was rarely given a chance at school. I was glad to be given one in such a wonderful game.
Despite Asgore's flaws, I sorta got the dad I never had from him. ( In Deltarune)
When I shared a post to my Facebook that concerned some friends I met on a Sans page I run, someone felt worried and gathered everyone in a chat saying someone here is down about themselves and needed the other peeps. When Sponge Bob gets his driver's license is the day I'd ever have that happen with people I know personally since being out of school.
No other game cured my select depression like Undertale did. I have also had some depressive episodes and the wonderful people I met on the Sans page came in and left some encouraging words. My so-called 'personal' friends just scroll past my posts.
I am truly thankful that I was given a chance to experience what it's like to have true friends, from a video game. But a video game that gives people a special connection. This probably sounds weird, right? Undertale has inspired me to start making renders again. I make blender renders because I suck at drawing and 3D art seemed easier to learn in my book. Undertale inspired me to start cosplaying and I did a low budget Chara cosplay
|I made this as a special thanks|
If the game's creator sees this, I hope you make more content people can relate to like Undertale. Even if they don't feel the same way about (whichever) like they did with Undertale, maybe it will be a new connection. I'd like to thank ya for the wonderful game.
Again, sorry for getting personal. I know I am just a weird stranger on the internet. This may sound weird coming from this weird stranger, I hope you're pacing yourself with your content. I care. Don't want ya to take on more than you can handle and it's like a traffic jam trying to keep up. I hope you're doing Ok.
Anyways, good day, night, evening, whenever ya read this.
