I watched this gif while listening to this...it's what I think Anti's music box sounds like. If you like it, let me know. Hope you have a fantastic day/night. ~SepticMist01

Mask man dude I'd love to to collab on something sometime or even write a story based on your art. I like to write from time to time. I would definitely love to write a story one day. Your art is absolutely beautiful and amazing. I get so excited when I see you post something because I know I'm going to love it.

I have lost count of how many times I have watched this little animation. I get the feeling that this is set before Anti found Jack, but I imagine that he'd still listen to it afterwards, too, on low nights. So, for those who are equally in love with this piece, here's a scene that I wrote that this inspired from me. I hope you enjoy.
-------

It was with great reluctance that Jack woke, turning to stare at the clock that told him it was past midnight. But, the longer he stared at the LED lights, the more he felt awake. Eventually his ears alerted him to the high pitched twinkling sounds that had woken him originally.

Without a second thought, he clambered out of bed and made his way to the hall. Once there, he slowed and padded quietly to the spare bedroom or, more specifically, Anti’s bedroom. He’d set the room up for the demonic look-alike for two reasons: 1 - so Anti technically had his own room, and 2 - so Anti was well aware that 24-hour cohabitation was not considered appropriate, or acceptable. The last point was a term that the demon actually abided by, surprisingly, and would leave Jack alone at night.

Anti’s door was open when he reached it, as it always was. He paused at the doorway and peered inside.

He sighed quietly at the sight.

The bedside lamp was on, illuminating the still body on the bed. The demon was curled up at its foot, on top of the sheets, breathing slowly as he stared at the music box that rested by the pillows. The music box was open, making the twinkling sounds that had woken Jack, and a strange figure spun slowly in its centre.

This wasn’t the first time Anti’s music box had woken him; for the last month it had played every third night. This wasn’t the first time he’d stood at the door, either, watching and waiting to see what Anti was up to. But each time the music died, the demon would just continue to lie there, unmoving, and Jack would walk back to his room, feeling slightly concerned for his unwelcome tenant.

Jack stood at the door as the music began to wind down. When it stopped, he remained still. He knew this was the part where he should just walk back to his room, he knew Anti wouldn’t set it off again, but, for some reason, he didn’t want to move. A part of him wanted to enter the room, wanted to talk with Anti, or do something at the very least.

Just as he was about to lose his nerve, and go back to bed, a shuddering breath broke the silence and Anti trembled for a moment. It was just a moment, and the trembling was only slight, but Jack’s concern bolstered his courage and he carefully, quietly, pushed the door open and entered the room.

He paused for a moment, fully expecting Anti to have noticed him and snapped at him, or yelled, or got up in his face and demanded that he get out. But, nothing happened. Anti didn’t seemed to have noticed anything. Jack then slowly made his way to beside the bed and sat down on the floor, his back to the bedside table and the lamp.

He watched the demon finally realise that he wasn’t alone. He visibly tensed for a moment before recognising his host, before relaxing slightly. But, there was still a wariness in his eyes that hadn’t been there before.

Hoping it would be seen as a peace-offering, Jack carefully reached out to the music box and slowly wound it up again, before placing it softly back onto the bed. Anti’s eyes instantly flickered to the box and softened, before returning to Jack. He frowned slightly, clearly confused but not wanting to break the silence between the pair of them. In response, Jack gently pushed the box further onto the bed, folded his arms on the mattress edge and rested his head on them, staring at the box and watching the figure spin. From the corner of his eye, he could see Anti returned his own attention to the music box.

The pair of them remained motionless while the music box played for a second time that night. Occasionally, they would glance at the other, wondering what they were thinking, but inevitably returning to the music. When the music died again, Jack looked to Anti, hoping for a hint on what he should do. Anti stared back for a few moments, before blinking and returning his gaze to the silent box.

Deciding that that was what Anti wanted, he wound the music box and let it play for a third time. He watched the demon, uncertain of what to make of the vulnerability he could sense. He felt like he could ask Anti anything, and he’d get a straight answer regardless of the question. But, even as questions flooded his mind, he also felt like asking anything was a huge breach of trust this strange creature had with him. Even a generic “is everything okay” felt wrong to ask. So, he decided to stay silent and watched the figure spin.

As the music box fell silent once more, Jack turned to the demon and found that his look-alike had finally fallen asleep. Anti twitched slightly, but he was, without a doubt, sleeping deeply.

Jack smiled softly and carefully picked up the music box, closing its lid and resting it safely on the bedside table. He opened a drawer and pulled out a spare blanket that was stored in it. Slowly, so as to not wake him, he draped the blanket across Anti up to his shoulders, even tucking it in slightly where a draft might get underneath. Then, once he was sure Anti wasn’t going to suddenly wake up on him, Jack turned the lamp off, closed the door, and finally made his own way back to bed.

Would it be ok if I tried to make an animation of this? I will have to warn you it will be my first attempt at animating, but I really want to try this!!! I can promise that you will be credited, along with Mask, and I will try to keep you updated on the progress!

Sure, go for it.

While I'd never dissuade anyone from having a stab at being creative, I feel obligated to say "don't put too much on your plate". I've been writing stories since I was ten, and I've had quite a few creative ideas fall through because I wasn't ready for the scale of the project and I didn't think/plan it properly. I'd hate for the same thing to happen to you.

If you want to animate the scene, go for it. You seem really eager, and I would never dream of stopping you. But, maybe try making something a tad simpler first? Like a walk animation? Just to get the hang of it.

Regardless, good luck with your first attempt at animation. Put a link here when you're done. I'd love to see it.

Thank you so much! I have dabbled here and there, but never really found anything that struck me as hard as this! I've already got the story board thing done in my head, just gotta put it to paper now, ya know? ^w^

It also helps that I only have one week left of school, so now I have a project for the summer!!!

I get entirely where you're coming from. I live with scenes and stories in my head, which don't leave until I write them down, and it always feels so satisfying to put them down on paper and share them. It's great when you can find something that lights that fire in your mind, and Mask does that so beautifully with their work, so I'm really glad that my silly little scene lit that flame in your mind, like Mask did in mine.

Heck! Mask has inspired an entire story out of me, and one that I intend to pursue in video game format.... as soon as I'm skilled enough with the Unity engine (which is going to be a while -_-). It doesn't feature Dark or Anti, before anyone asks, and it's quickly evolved into it's own thing, but Mask still inspired it.

So, good luck, have fun and I'd love to see your animation when you're finished.

Sure, go for it. As long as credit is given, I don't have a problem with you using my little scene. Don't forget to credit Mask as well, as it's their sandbox we're playing in.

And as for the rest of the story, that'll be all your own work, so you really don't need my permission for that, and Mask seems pretty cool over others writing stories based on their work. I'd be really interested in what you write, so let me know, yeah?

Also, here's the animation that FrancistheDragon and I were talking about: youtu.be/LR6YeLod_Dg. If the link doesn't work, look up "Antisepticeye - just breathe" by milo.mp3.

This was so beautiful. Somebody turned this animation into a video with the song "Isolation" by Lucas King, the music box version, and listening to it while I read this scene made it so much better. Thank you so much for this beautiful story!

Oh yeah, I've watched that video more than a few times. I love the music box version of "Isolation", I think it's very fitting for Anti's personality and situation, at least as I perceive it.

Funnily enough, it was that video that got me curious about Mask's work, and I hopped over here and fell in love with the rest of it.

Glad you enjoyed the scene. I did want to write more (maybe write from Anti's POV) but I was getting to 1000 words, and I didn't want to post a wall of text...... Kinda did that anyway, though. -_-'

FrancistheDragon Featured By Owner May 9, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
I'm glad others like that video as much as I do! And yes, it really fits, because Anti is completely isolated from what I understood. He is isolated from his past and his home (I guess) by Dark's betrayal and because he lost his wings, but he is also isolated from Jack because of the fact that he's a demon, and even though they sometimes share a body I think that they're still worlds apart. Your story reflected that really well, because Jack doesn't really know how to "reach out" to Anti when he thinks about this long lost past. 
This is all speculation, by the way, based upon what I've seen from Mask's art. I'm always trying to make sense of it, and it does fit together, but I'm still missing so many parts...

But hey, a wall of text does become a nice path when it is well written, so I don't see any problem there ;-P
