"A few reported seeing Daniel sprinting down the hall screaming like the git he was..."
Oh god, I laughed so hard at that. It's just so easy to picture a grunt standing around, minding his own business...when suddenly Daniel runs screaming down the hall with his arms flailing because he's such a terrified little woobie... Also, I like your writing - it flows smoothly and the idea of Ansgar being a chill guy, deep down, is a very reassuring thought. :D

Okay, first of all, points for catching my eye with the title.
Secondly, I think I have never sympathized ever with an Antagonist in my life until now.
I mean, how you wrote this Grunt Ansgar into a quite charming and tad loveable character is amazing. Kudos for amazing showmanship!

BEJEEZUZ! Holy Cow, thinking that the monsters can talk somehow makes the game scarier! Like they're actually going to say that when they're chasing you or something, as if it's not scary enough already!
Holy Cow, but this was really good! It gives another light to the Grunts, that they may still have humanity within them, it's very nice!

Wow...such a deep character study for a monster that doesn't get much attention in the game. I really enjoyed reading this. It's an excellent work. Poor Angsar...knowing that he was a servant before, you have to wonder if the human part of him still cares as he chases you around in-game, and here he is a rare being with a strong sense of morality.
I'm of two minds on Daniel. On one hand, he's a confused 20-something year old who's being chased by a horrific Shadow and manipulated by a homesick other-worldly being; on the other he's a sick bastard who excels in asking dumb questions and bumbling around. :/ In here you did a great job of using the second X)
tl;dr, I know, but I really liked this.

I really liked this. It never occurred to me that the Gatherers were still individuals rather than lumbering zombies. I also never thought of Daniel seeing the Gatherers before drinking the amnesia potion; his journal entry merely described Alexander's servants as "quiet and skulking". Very well done.

That... that was brilliant, good sir! To think all of the Mr. Faces have opinions and thoughts and feelings. That's just awesome. I feel a bit bad now for chucking things at them and crapping-bricks every time I saw one! And I adored Daniel's actions towards the end. They made me smile.
Anyways, keep up the good work! : D Hoping to see more Amnesia from you!

wow. that was one of the best stories I've read in a long while. It's really interesting to see things from the side of the servants.I would have never thought about it this way (especially since people generally portray the servants loving Daniel). Great job :D

;-; ;-; My creys.
This is seriously amazing. I love how you made the Gatherers seem so...human. The little girl made me smile, too. You wrote everyone wonderfully. Thank you for this fic! It's amazing and I love it.

Well this entire experience was spoiled for me because as I was reading the most saddening part and I was on my little "Scary Music That Makes You Cry" playlist on iTunes SOMEHOW the Snuggle Bunny song popped up and ruined it.
And now I can't read the part without that HORRIBLE song in my head.
But it was still a good oneshot.

I like it! It's interesting to think that maybe, deep down inside, Mr. Face is still human and still has feelings.
