the same deep water as you


You make me the strongest of all men
I'll remain the happiest of men.

A Mettaton/Alphys playlist focusing on the routes wherein one mourns the loss of the other--King Mettaton ending and Genocide path--and starting off with a glance at their dynamics prior to the events of the game, hinted by Mettaton's diaries and Alphys's entries found in the true labs.

The kingdom must be tiresome and colorless to the king when he lacks the companion he wishes he could share it with. Sometimes I feel exactly that way, missing people as time has passed. I'm in a lonely mood today and this is making me so sad. But feelings are good things; such are the joys and burdens of being alive. Thanks so much for another lovely playlist.

"Winter" -- perfect lyrics in that song, wow! There's a lot of songs in this list I've never heard before, and I appreciate that. Do you know the Aimee Mann cover of "The Scientist"? It's a live bonus track off the 2-disk version of her album "Lost in Space".

@Mz.Mallow And I appreciate your feedback! The story development around their relationship, though subtle, is definitely going to remain one of my most favourite aspects of the whole game. I’ve always found it a bit discouraging to see that it was either largely overlooked or somehow misinterpreted by the majority of the fandom, which I think is why there seems to be a certain lack of fanworks. Thank you for your suggestion – I didn’t know that cover, I just gave it a listen and well, if it isn’t a superb rendition! Perhaps I might even include it in this fanmix (as a bonus track?)

I'm pleasantly surprised to see a fanmix with this theme! I think it's strongly hinted, practically canon that these two had an intense relationship that was much different than the "they were friends, then they drifted apart" surface narrative, but I barely ever see that idea in fanworks.
