At Eye Level by herooftime1000 At Eye Level by herooftime1000
The sentence is being carried out. Despite the protests of Octavia, the Oracles, and the Judge's inner emotions, the law will swiftly hand down justice to all those that are guilty. It will take a miracle to save Octavia now.

The judges inner emotions are protesting as well?  This says a lot about the judge.  Unless I'm misinterpreting this, he seems to feel guilty handing down some of his sentences.  This makes thins a lot more interesting.

There's always a hierarchy. Sometimes, the decisions he makes are not his own.

She broke a sacred law by using forbidden magic.

"By the power of friendship"

Friendship isn't what's driving the Judge to do this, but the overwhelming influence of the law.

"Despite the protests of the Oracles"

You mean those three dudes in the upper thing, the cat, dragon and pony? The ones intentionally there to keep the Judge from making stupid decisions by taking every trait of the suspect's character into account?

What's the point of having them if he's just going to ignore them? That's just poor character design. Or to quote possibly the only quotable thing by Enter "What I'm doing is wrong, I know it's wrong, but I'm gonna do it anyways."

It's apparently more like "What I'm doing is wrong, I know it's wrong, but I'm gonna do it anyways because it's the law and I can't change it."

Would you believe that the Judge is a prisoner of his own device? The sentence being carried out isn't entirely his hoof.

But then doesn't that kind of shoot the "omnipotent" thing in the foot?

There's always a hierarchy. Someone gave him the job. He's not the true leader of the Underworld. Immensely powerful, but not truly omnipotent. Deep down, he's still a pony.

Hmm, so then the question is, who is the leader?

Unfortunately, it's an unseen force. It will be implied when the Judge confides his emotions to Octavia.

Tell you what I'm going to do, ok?

Because you and I are having this back and forth on this scene, I will send you demos of the scene, and you will walk me through it. I understand that you are looking out for my best interests and I appreciate it, but I'm sensing a bit of a trust issue. 

Will that be acceptable?

I mean, I'll give it a try.

I don't really have that much of a trust issue here. I just wanna make sure it remains consistent.

The reason I'm extended my hand to you is because of your passion to keep it from being Undertale 2.0 (which was never my intention, but hey, here we are). And besides, some extra eye may be necessary to keep the story in check.

I can always give it a look.

I guess the biggest reason I'm so passionate is I've seen so many games time and time again fail, especially indie ones.

I can understand why you are worried, but the most I've got to lose from this is some negative reactions. This is still a free game I'm making on my own personal time. I'll worry more when the big fish comes around.

Those negative reactions can cause a ripple effect.
