    You're..."theory" is the most base bullshit I've ever seen. Seriously a teenager could've come up with this. Not only that, but you're ignoring a key detail that kinda unravels your whole theory. Kris and Susie come out of a different room than the one they entered, giving the impression it wasn't just a dream and this journey wasn't just their imagination, plus does Susie really seem the type roleplay? Couple that with the fact she and Kris aren't friends and she wouldn't want to play with them. Speaking of Susie, just because her hair is long doesn't mean she's poor, many girls wear their hair long because it's a feminine style, Noelle, a reindeer monster in Alphys' class, has similarly long hair. The same goes for the pants, it's considered fashionable to wear ones that have holes, especially with people who have punkish personalities, like Susie. On the food point Susie is shown to like eating things people don't normally eat in later parts of the chapter like moss and worms, so the fact she's stealing the chalk is because she finds her so tasty that it's worth stealing and risking expulsion. Finally Susie is heavily implied to be rude and obnoxious person with little regard for other people because she finds it fun, this is why she teams up with Lancer, since they're both "bad guys," the reason for her being this way isn't explicitly stated, though it's clear she thinks everyone hates her and she rolls with it, putting on a bad guy persona and embracing it. Whatever the cause of her bad behavior, it seems to be more complex than, "she's embarrassed about being poor aww so sad." That's a really lame and predictable explanation...which is probably why you thought of it. This is why I hate your theories nowadays and why I unsubbed, you take something with rich characters and deep lore and come up with "theories" about them that fit your base mentality because you either don't understand or don't care about them.

    It’s all wrong.
    One fraction.
    At the end, She rips out her own heart. Now, she doesn’t have a soul, allowing to possess. She. Is. Chara. Plus she has a knife at the end, and a red eye like she does. And, she lives with goat mom. Now, she’s chara. Possessing, frisk. Murdering, everyone.

    Quick thing to mention matpat, did you notice that in the end of chapter 1 of DELTARUNE kris’ shirt has the same colors as chara? And that he wields a knife? Like chara! AAAAAAANNNNNNDDD that he has red eyes. Like chara. Enough said. (but thats just a theory. a game theory. ) ( P.S. i think chara’s coming back.)

    How about the "Angel of Death" in the Deltarune. The old shopkeeper in Waterfall says the angels was originally meant to save the people of the underworld (Asriel helping Kris through abandonment) and that it was called "The Angel of Death" after the underworld (darkner world) thought they would never see the sky again (be played with) (also Kris finding a new Asriel that won't save that world, Kris's imagination, lock away forever).
