Thoughts on Human Papyrus below:

- Same basic features as Sans has, except long and handsome. So same wavy dark hair, same complexion, same sharp nose, same toothy grin, etc.

- Much younger than Sans, closer to 20. Also is full of zest for life, so he doesn’t look like he’s taken a brick to the face.

- Actually brushes his hair. Brushes it constantly. Uses a lot of MTT-brand hairspray (is there glitter in there???) Never used to part it to the side like that, but now he wants lush, shimmering shoujo hair like MTT has.

- Clean-shaven. He exfoliates daily and wears facial masks, so his face is clear and as soft as a baby’s buttcheeks.

- He was told you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have. So he’s LARPing a Royal Guard right now with his homemade costume. It’s made out of old padding, paper mache, and paint. It’s not tape, it’s ADHESIVE REINFORCEMENT. The gloves are rubber dish gloves. The shorts are cutoff jeans.

The only part that’s not visibly recycled from something else is the cape. It’s a little worn out, but it’s actually pretty nice quality fabric and he doesn’t know how Sans managed to get his hands on it.

- His appearance is really goofy and childlike to other adults. While people in the Underground commonly repurpose clothing and materials, they’re not really sure what style Pap is going for. A casual football player? Some kind of superhero? It’s… a little silly and no one is convinced it’s anything close to Guard armor, except for the human.

- On the other hand, underneath the cosplay is someone who’s very fit, trains constantly, and is in peak physical form. He’s not beefy like some of the other guards might be. (Someday though!) But he’s got an actual soldier bod. He… kinda looks good.

- He is 110% the kind of guy who takes selfies in the mirror while lifting his shirt up and showing off his abs.

- Actually needs glasses like Sans does too, but refuses to wear them because he hates how they look. This causes reading problems and some constant squinting, but he endures it. NO GLASSES

I still haven't been bitten by the Undertale bug (Freedom Planet, on the other hand...), so anything to do with game authenticity is flying right over my head, but this is still fantastic.

You have created the perfect lovable dork. Between this and your Sans doodles, I think we have reached peak lovable dork. (Sorry, Balrog. You're still the best giant toaster man.)

By the way, those are some choice hair-sparkles. Even Emil Vasterstrom would be jealous. (Incidentally, have you gotten back into SSSS yet? It's gooood.)

I just sat down and caught up all in one go! WHEW that was like 300 pages

Maaan it's getting so good though! And it seems like it's pretty close to finishing?? The ghosts are a really cool addition since where I last left off.

Wowsers! That's a heck of an archive binge.

I don't know how the fans find this info, but I think they've been saying the story actually has several more chapters to go. 

And then there's "City of Hunger," the alternate-universe sci-fi early-Final-Fantasy-ish RPG the creator's been working on in place of the Wednesday updates. 

I don't know when this woman sleeps.
SimonSoys Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can't believe the schedule she runs on! I wish I could do a single page like hers in a month, let alone three or four each week! D8

I didn't know about City of Hunger... I'll have to check that out too. I never read her earlier work, The Redtail's Dream, despite wanting to. Have you read that one at all?
thereallinebyline Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
Nope. It's on my to-do list, though, along with about thirty others, not counting the dozen or so I'm already caught up on. (Maiz, Everblue, and Galaxion to name a few...One day I should just make a big list of all the comics I read.)

omh i love this and everything you wrote about him is just so A++
PillowBuddy Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I can totally imagine him like that in human form, not many people can get it right.
Sans just feels like a creepy basement dweller Creepy Woody ... I'm sorry, though its hard not to when hes drawn like that.  ._.
