(Pap always doing his best ;.;)

Mira trying to still hide the fact that she wasn’t feeling the best as she remembered how Papyrus had wound up making Sans worry by calling him yesterday to give her a ‘bedtime story’, the human knew that what she had was just a stomach bug and it wasn’t going to hopefully last long.


“I-I’m perfectly fine, don’t worry~”, Mira giving a soft smile to Papyrus when the protective skeleton appeared to have simply followed her footprints in the snow to find her, the girl had managed to stand back on her tired legs but the fact that she had been kneeling in the snow previously was obvious by the encrusted snow on her knees.

Another wave of nausea hitting Mira though as if to prove her wrong in this lie, a whine escaped the girl’s voice as she huffed and out a hand to her belly unhappily, “Ok ok, maybe I ate something t-that didn’t sit right with my stomach, but I’ll be ok, I promise, Papyrus”.

.......................

Alpgys knowing quite a bit about the ‘void theory’ and that it was supposedly a subliminal world between this one and others, no one really knew exactly what it looked like or how it was entered if such a act was even possible, there being no known way for a monster to simply transport themselves to where it laid in the ‘in between’ without severely damaging it not outright destroying their soul.

At least the theories went that way, Alphys unwilling to risk such a feat with anyone as a causality was far too high for the process. If this apparently sentient flower somehow had figured out how to travel via the void than Alphys wanted to question it if possible, her unaware that the soulless being was capable of resetting time with its determination and it was ‘evil’ incarnate due to this OP ability.

Yeah, talking to the one responsible for untold numbers of Genocides and reset worlds, now that would be easy...

Ready to get into a lively debate out the mysteries surrounding the void, Alphys seemed to take the change in subject towards one about how her research was going easily as that was yet another topic she had been needing to discuss with Sans.

“Well, I did find some interesting stuff about old human magic that might help figure out what this barrier is made of anyways”, Shuffling over to one of the tables where she had a sheet of paper about a half inch thick, she had done research all right, ‘some’ of the info she had found amounting to multiple pages worth of facts and ideas on what exactly constitute human magic, “Whatever it is it’s for sure a mixture of different types of magic, that’s the only way it could be as strong as it is”.

(Yep!)

Papyrus was confused by the contradiction between Mira's statement that she was fine and how she seemed to be trying to hide her discomfort. It didn't seem like everything was fine like she was insisting. Papyrus just wanted to help; Mira was his friend, after all! Papyrus didn't want her to be hurting! But how could he help, if she was trying to act like nothing was wrong?

When Mira admitted to having eaten something that had upset her stomach, Papyrus was surprised. What could it have been? Well, he could figure that out later, right now he needed to help Mira!

"OH, THEN COME INSIDE! YOU SHOULDN'T BE OUT HERE IN THE COLD WHEN YOU ALREADY DON'T FEEL WELL!" Papyrus said, clearly concerned. Papyrus began gently guiding her back to the house, relieved they weren't too far away. "WOULD YOU LIKE SOME TEA? OR, DOES THAT HELP HUMANS AT ALL? UM, LET'S SEE, WHAT ELSE DO WE HAVE..." Papyrus said, the last part mostly to himself. Papyrus really wanted to help Mira feel better as quickly as possible.

.........

Sans noticed Alphys actually seemed interested in discussing the void theory; maybe she wouldn't find it weird if he was researching it? Well, if he still had any questions or theories he wasn't sure about after he researched it on his own, he could talk with her about it later. Possibly. Sans still wasn't sure whether it would be a good idea to talk about Flowey with anyone for too long.

After all, he didn't want to somehow trigger their memories of the past timelines or anything. Especially the ones where Flowey did genocide runs...

Sans listened curiously as Alphys explained what she had found out about old human magic. Following Alphys to the table and looking over the notes she had taken, Sans thought back to the book he'd read, looking for connections between what he'd read and the information Alphys had noted.

"hmm, so multiple humans with different types of magic probably worked together to create it, then," Sans commented. After all, he doubted there were any humans powerful enough to have created a barrier on their own, especially if it was made up of a mixture of different types of magic. If there had been a human that powerful, the humans wouldn't have been so afraid of monsters.

Sans wondered if the types of magic used to create the barrier in the first place could be a key to breaking it. Then again, humans didn't seem to have magic anymore, so even if it was, it wouldn't be a very helpful hint anyway. Still, it could be interesting to research the types of magic that formed the barrier regardless.

Maybe it was just because she was a human among monsters that scared Mira on the fact that she didn’t want anyone to be worrying about her, the girl wanting to be as strong as these skelebros seemed to be and to fit in without showing that she simply wasn’t and never had been the strongest.

Mira was petite, had a weak stomach, anxiety, and just the slightest hint of still being nervous of monsters, sarcasm intended on the latter part.

Meanwhile there was the ever confident Papyrus and the chilled out Sans, Mira thinking that both were wickedly cool compared to her and feeling like a major burden unfortunately due to her ken insecurities creeping up.

“Yeah, your right on that~ B-but really, I will be ok”, Not even having gave thought you the fact that being in the cold was likely only making her illness feel worse, Mira should have known that it was better to remain in the warm house just as Papyrus said she should, “You don’t have to worry about me”.

Sighing in comfort when she entered the house once again, this was to be her new home for more then just a while, wasn’t it? In her heart, Mira sensed that things wouldn’t be changing with the barrier anytime soon, her figuring that it was best to get used to the underground as much as she could because of this, “I think I’m just going to go lay down, I bet I will feel better if I just take a nap”.

......................


“That’s exactly what I think they did! Way back when it seems that the humans got their most powerful wizards together and created the barrier after the war”, Alphys smiling as she was proud of what she had researched and what she was able to bring up to Sans, it was a step in the right direction towards figuring out the elements of the only thing keeping them from the surface world.

Finding out the exact elements that these long gone wizards had used as going to be far tricker though, the books she had found this info in already being as ancient as the war she spoke of, the human/monster conflict being far before her time but being common knowledge to monsters in general.

“If only I knew if these kinds of humans even existed anymore, then I could judge if they are somehow still feeding into it in a sense”, Looking through her papers as her expression changed from one of focus to a breakthrough in a moment, Alphys soon had a new idea as her mind shifted to how well Sans and Mira seemed to be getting along.

Mira was a human..f-from the surface world! She might be able to tell Sans everything she knew about human history, including about the wizards! A-and the current state of the human world!

“I have a favor to ask of you, it has to do with Mira since she would probably be more willing to talk to you in depth then someone...Uhh, like me”, Alphys having a theory that was rooted in if Mira could tell them about the current state of humanity, monsters were mostly cut off of any modernity...until now, “Has she ever said anything about what life is like on the surface? I need as much current info as I can get on humanity straight from the source, that’s better than any old book with fifty different answer to the same question”.

Papyrus was glad to hear Mira would be okay, but he wasn't likely to stop worrying about her until she felt completely better from her stomachache. After all, Mira was his friend, and he didn't want her to feel ill at all, ever! Though sadly, there wasn't really any way he could actually prevent it. So the next best thing was helping her heal as quickly as possible!

Hearing Mira just wanted to rest for awhile, and knowing rest probably would help her feel better at least somewhat, Papyrus nodded. "ALRIGHT, I HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON!" In the meantime, perhaps he could try making more of the spaghetti with the peppers humans really liked, so that by the time Mira's stomach felt better he would have perfected it. Or he could try making tea; Papyrus actually hadn't really ever tried to make tea before, and if it would help Mira, he should learn how before she woke up.

Or both, since Papyrus was going to be in a state of worry until Mira was feeling completely better, and he needed something to do to keep his mind off of it and to feel like he was doing something to help.

"LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, ALRIGHT?" Papyrus added.

............

Sans smiled back, glad to see Alphys feeling proud of herself again. She'd definitely done a lot of research over the previous evening. Though, figuring out what types of magic exactly had been used to make the barrier just from the books they had would be quite difficult.

Alphys' theory that there might still be humans with a small enough amount of magic that they wouldn't realize they had it but that was enough to keep feeding into the barrier was interesting. Though, Sans had no idea how they would ever actually find out. After all, if the humans themselves had no idea, how could the monsters possibly figure it out if that was the case?

Seeing Alphys seemed to have a breakthrough, Sans waited curiously but patiently to hear what her idea was. Hearing Alphys' idea involved asking Mira about the surface and humans, Sans nodded. That seemed like a good plan; While Mira probably would not be able to answer any questions about whether humans might secretly still have a small amount of magic, they could still learn quite a bit about humans from her.

"sure, i'll ask her about life on the surface. is there anything in particular you need to know?" Sans replied. Though, he wasn't sure why Alphys thought Mira would be more willing to discuss it with him than with Alphys; Mira hadn't seemed to mind the idea of talking with Alphys before. Was it because Mira had been a bit overwhelmed by all of Alphys' anime-related questions before?

Either way, since Mira was staying with him and Papyrus for now, Sans figured he probably would have more opportunities to talk with her than Alphys would, so maybe that had been all Alphys had meant by it.

Even if she simply had a bit of a weak stomach, Mira truly did appreciate her skelefriend caring for her to much despite the fact that she was as stubborn as a mile sometimes. She knew Papyrus was the caring type who did his best to help others even when he had no idea what he was doing, him almost reminding Mira of someone she missed dearly on the surface.

Oh yeah...she did have people on the surface likely worried sick about her right now....

‘They probably think I got myself killed. I wonder what they would say if they knew any of this existed down here....?’

“Yeah, t-thanks~”, Smiling small at Papyrus before returning to her room and nearly collapsing on her bed in exhaustion as she inhaled deeply and squeezed her eyes shut tightly to block out the ringing in her ears, Mira was at least warm and comfy in the house unlike her trying to keep her illness on the down-low outside.

....................

As usual, it seemed Alphys had managed to switch from one idea that seemed it wouldn’t work to one that seemed more plausible in the blink of a eye, her figuring that if these old books weren’t going to tell them what they needed then maybe going right to the source would if Mira was any whiz at history by chance.

The scientist knew she had kinda blew it the other day by getting caught up in asking pointless questions about what she assumed humans were, that In her eyes he having tainted future questioning on humans as Mira was more liable to try and please her by telling her what she wished to hear now.

If only she had been more diligent! But nonetheless there was at least Sans who could likely help seeing as the shy human appeared to trust him more than anyone down here.

“I know me and her talked before, but she seems the type who would be happier with you asking about her life. We don’t have many records on humanity for the current era so your contribution would be pretty valuable”, Alphys wanting to get a general idea of what humanity was like nowadays and if they potentially still used subtle magic in any way on the surface, there was the chance she could trace it back to what she was looking for info on and go from there with figuring out the types of magic in the barrier, “Since she lives with you I figured that...u-uh, you could just ask her casual stuff over time about how things are up there, you know? Whatever comes to mind, nothing too in particular”

‘There are SO many details I want but that kid would just get overwhelmed all over again!’

Papyrus smiled back at Mira as she headed back to her room, and once she'd disappeared inside, he returned to the kitchen. If only there was more he could do for her... Papyrus sighed and tried to focus on what he was doing, knowing that worrying about her definitely wouldn't help.

Papyrus headed to the cabinet and took out some tea ingredients, figuring it would take longer for him to figure out how to make tea than anything else. Papyrus read over the instructions, though they weren't really very clear, and Papyrus learned better hearing things verbalized than from reading anyway. Even pictures would be more helpful than this!

Maybe Undyne could teach him? After all, she'd been able to teach him how to make spaghetti so well! Surely she would be able to teach him how to make tea correctly too. Though, Papyrus wasn't sure if she'd want to give him another cooking lesson already; they'd just gotten back from one, after all. Well, he'd at least make an attempt on his own before calling Undyne. Maybe he'd be able to figure it out on his own if he really tried. After all, he was the Great Papyrus!

........

Sans still wasn't sure why Alphys seemed so sure Mira would prefer him asking her questions about the surface more than Alphys, but he didn't mind asking questions for her, so he decided to just go with it. "sure, i can do that." Sans said.

It sounded like he'd guessed right that part of her reasoning was the fact Mira would be around the skelebros more often than Alphys. It would certainly give him more opportunities to ask questions. But that didn't mean Alphys would never have opportunities to ask Mira questions; when the group gathered to discuss their research would be a good opportunity, for instance.

Plus, Sans figured there probably were particular questions Alphys wanted to ask. "you know, i really don't think she'd mind if you asked her questions as well," he added, hoping to boost Alphys' confidence. While he'd try his best to ask questions that would help Alphys with her research, he was sure there would be some things he wouldn't think of that Alphys might need to know.

Idly, Sans wondered how Papyrus and Mira's cooking lesson had gone. Really, Sans was surprised Papyrus hadn't called him yet to tell him about it. Usually he called him immediately afterwards to tell him all about the latest masterpiece he and Undyne had made, unless something came up.

Had something come up?

Nah, it was probably just that they were having so much fun cooking that the lesson was running later than usual, Sans told himself.

(I feel like I feel at making Alphys and her motives less clear XD She is kinda nervous right now but it’s so hard to write anxious characters sometimes)

‘Get your act together, your the Royal scientist!’

Alphys knowing that she was being vague on why she needed Sans to ask Mira about her life on the surface, it wasn’t necessarily that there was any benefit to him over her asking the human what was needed, Mira bound to be honest no matter who asked her about her life.

It was simply due to the fact that Alphys wasn’t even sure if Mira was comfortable around her and other monsters quite yet, her unsure if Sans had seen the clear look of fear in the human’s eyes when she had been talking to them yesterday after they found out she had what was known as a ‘love’ Soul.

It had been subtle, but Mira had clearly been hiding her emotions back from being expressed, no doubt her own overwhelming questions on Anime related topics when Alphys herself had gotten off track confusing the already high strung Mira and causing her to answer dishonestly in order to please the scientist.

‘Mira is very much a people...er, monster pleaser, she doesn’t want to upset anyone with saying the ‘wrong’ answer. I wonder why that is?’

“Ah, thanks, maybe I will eventually, but she will likely be more honest with you, I feel it”, Chucking lightly as Sans tried to boost her confidence despite her own assurance that Mira was simply just a shy human towards those she didn’t know well, Alphys couldn’t help but with wonder if Sans had noticed this at all as well with the girl. Sure, Mira appeared to be getting along famously with Sans from the bit she had seen them together, but had he noticed the sad, longing look in her eyes when she spoke, or was Alphys just a bit crazy?

“Hey, sorry if this is a bit personal, but Mira -is- okay, right?”, Speaking up low after a minute or so as if she wasn’t sure if the question was appropriate or not, Alphys didn’t think Sans to be the oblivious type to the fact that Mira was clearly still nervous about living in the underground, “N-not that I think she is unhappy because of you though! That book I gave you should fill you in on lots of ways to make humans happy. It’s just...what if she is homesick?”.

(It's okay, I think you're doing good! ^^)

Sans sighed. "i think you might be right. she did seem kind of homesick." Sans felt bad that he couldn't really do anything to help with that; because of the barrier, there was no way he could just help her go back home. Of course, he'd noticed how nervous Mira seemed, and while he and Papyrus had tried their best to make the Underground seem welcoming rather than scary, he wasn't sure if their efforts were helping much.

Sans was a bit overwhelmed himself, between everything that was going on. Trying to figure out the barrier, but still having no idea how to deal with it; the looming threat of Flowey resetting; wanting to help Mira feel better, but if she was homesick there was really nothing he could do...

Of course, Sans hid all of this so Alphys wouldn't notice. She already had enough on her plate with her duties as Royal Scientist. The last thing she needed was to be worrying about him as well.

Besides, Sans was kind of an expert at keeping things bottled up by now.

Sans decided to finish reading through the book as soon as possible; maybe it would have something in it about how to help humans who were homesick. Although, since Alphys had brought it up, maybe she had some ideas for how to help Mira? "any ideas for how to help her feel less homesick?" Sans asked hopefully.

(Damn, he needs a vacation XD )

It wasn’t entirely unclear to Alphys that Sans had to deal with a lot of stresses in his life, even if to what extent those went she was unsure of due to her lack on knowledge on Flowey’s troublemaking. The last thing the scientist wanted to do was to give Sans even more to worry about regarding Mira, her only having mentioned that the girl was likely homesick due to sheer observation.

The thing was, everyone was stressed out right now though...the CORE having shown signs of weakening recently and talks of the barrier being broken just because of this single human being dismissed as nonsense, Alphys having overheard some monsters talking about using the human’s soul to cross the barrier themselves and collect several others to bring back as if it were a walk in the park.

A familiar tune with a unhappy ending if she had ever heard one.

A preposterous idea if Alphys had ever heard one too, the concept not even being scientifically sound.

“Well, if I were you I would ask -her- what makes her happy. Humans are pretty finicky but I’m sure something can be worked out”, Alphys actually smiling positively at Sans for once as she could tell the skeleton cared deeply for Mira, it was honestly kind of adorable in a way, “she seems the caring type though, so, Uhh...it sounds weird, but maybe letting her have some kind of responsibility might help take her mind off home? I read that humans enjoy doing small tasks like caring for plants and things if that helps at all ”.

(Yep XD)
(And, I mean, the plan would have worked if the humans hadn't taken one look at Asriel and decided to kill him)

Sans nodded; Alphys made a good point. Asking Mira what would help her would probably work out a lot better than trying to guess. "you're right. i'll ask her when i get back." Sans said, smiling back at Alphys. Sans hoped that they would indeed be able to figure out something that would help Mira feel less homesick.

Alphys' other suggestion, to give Mira a responsibility to distract her, made sense too. Though, Sans wasn't really sure what kind of responsibility she would like. Perhaps he should ask her about that, too. Although, he didn't think he'd be suggesting taking care of a plant. Especially if Flowey happened to be around.

"thanks for the suggestions," Sans said, feeling hopeful that they might help Mira feel less homesick. In the meantime, he would keep trying to figure out the barrier as well. After all, the best cure for her homesickness would be to get her back home, right?

Sans was really starting to wonder what had happened with the cooking lesson now; it had started ages ago, Sans would be surprised if it was still going. Had something happened? It was really unlike Papyrus to just not call him afterwards like this. Maybe he should head back and see if everyone was alright...

As if on cue, his phone started ringing. "oh, that's probably papyrus, wanting to tell me how his cooking lesson went," Sans said, stepping aside to answer the call. "heya bro. how'd the cooking lesson go?"

"SANS, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO COOK TEA?"

"uh, sure. why?"

"UM, DO YOU THINK YOU COULD MAYBE COME HELP ME FIGURE IT OUT?" Papyrus sounded slightly embarrassed.

"oh, sure bro." Sans replied, wondering why Papyrus suddenly wanted to learn how to make tea.

"GREAT! THANKS SANS!"

"no problem."

Papyrus then hung up, with a quick "SEE YOU SOON," leaving Sans very confused.

"uh, i think i have to go. papyrus needs my help with something," Sans said.
