Seeing that Mira was now watching Alphys and Gaster, Sans' entire focus was on the conversation with Papyrus. It seemed like the news had indeed been a shock for Papyrus, if how long he paused before speaking again was any indication. Sans felt bad for adding yet another shock on top of everything else that had happened today, but he had a feeling Papyrus would have been annoyed if he hadn't actually answered the question. Sans was starting to get concerned by the silence by the time Papyrus finally spoke again; he sighed inwardly when at first Papyrus seemed to be playing it off as if what he'd said was a joke.

Sans knew he was known for his jokes, but surely Papyrus could tell that he was being serious right now? When he was joking, Sans usually couldn't help but laugh. Besides, why would he joke about them being related to someone? Sans' sense of humor had always been more along the lines of puns and bad jokes, not trying to trick people. Even his pranks were harmless things like whoopie cushions.

Admittedly, it kind of hurt that Papyrus kept assuming he was joking when he tried to give any kind of serious news; when he had tried to tell Papyrus about meeting Alia, Papyrus had thought that was a joke too. Still, it had been a rather trying day, so he couldn't bring himself to feel annoyed with Papyrus. Just... Slightly frustrated that he wasn't taking him seriously.

As Papyrus continued speaking, Sans realized how confusing this must be for him since Papyrus had apparently believed Gaster was dead due to his absence from their lives since they were quite young. Sans figured this was probably a reasonable thought process, since almost everyone had completely forgotten about Gaster so it wasn't like anyone would have told him what actually happened. Sans hadn't ever really talked about it himself, either.

"nah... he didn't die. just... disappeared. it's kind of a long story, and probably one you should talk with him about. anyway, and i'm being completely serious here, he really is our dad." Sans replied after a few moments. Hopefully Papyrus would believe him, and he wouldn't have to spend too long trying to convince him. After all, he figured Mira probably wanted to leave the lab sooner rather than later, so he probably needed to get Alphys' and Gaster's attention so they could make sure it was alright for her to leave.


.......

Alia had started making a snowperson again, once she and Chara had finally managed to stop laughing. Chara was giving her tips, though that was pretty much all they could do to help, being a ghost. Still, Alia appreciated it, and was having fun anyway. At the back of her mind, though, she was still trying to figure out how to help them communicate with the monsters again. Part of her wanted to keep researching right now, but she figured wandering out of sight might make Papyrus worry, as she had seen he was keeping an eye on her. It also seemed like whatever he was talking about was making him confused, and she didn't want to make things worse by seemingly disappearing.

Still, she told herself, she would make sure she continued researching today. She was filled with Determination to help Chara.

After finishing with the snowperson, she headed back over closer to where Papyrus was, but still staying far enough away that she shouldn't distract him if Chara decided to try to make her laugh again.

Papyrus remaining quiet for a long moment on the other end of the phone as he seemed to sense that Sans wasn’t making a laughing matter out of this, the tall skeleton simply thought it seemed preposterous that that stranger he had met outside of the lab was in fact their long lost father, him only for a moment having assumed that Sans was trying to be a jokster about this whole situation. It simply felt like some kind of bad joke that just because the strange man had been a fellow skeleton that of -course- they would be related, but judging by the general aura that Sans was giving off with his explanation Papyrus knew in his Soul that he was dead serious.

“Hey, I’m really sorry I’m doubting you on all this, it just...think of it, dad being back? It sounds like the beginning of a weird story, you know?”, Rubbing the back of his skull nervously as he spoke in a normal tone for once, Papyrus was audibly feeling guilty, him knowing he had probably hit a nerve in Sans with thinking he would be messing around with something so important, “As weird as all this sounds, I believe you...knowing you I bet you found a way to bring him home or something”.

Smiling doubtfully on his end as he sighed and glanced at Alia playing in the snow, Papyrus still felt guilty over how odd he had been acting earlier, him wanting to discuss it all with Sans later seeing as his brother was smarter at helping with these types of things, “Of course, now that he -is- back there is a whole lot of catching up we must accomplish! Will he be staying with us, Sans? It only seems best if we are to be a full family again!”.

Sans waited as Papyrus seemed to think about what he just said, hoping that his brother believed him now. When Papyrus apologized and explained why it had been hard for him to believe, Sans could understand how it would have been quite a shock for him to learn Gaster was back, especially after hearing nothing about him for so long. Sans could tell Papyrus was feeling guilty for not believing him at first from his tone, and spoke reassuringly, "it's alright, bro. i certainly wasn't expecting it either."

Really, Sans hadn't thought he would ever see Gaster again himself. And he certainly hadn't expected the circumstances of seeing him again to be, well, what had happened earlier. Sans was rather disappointed by how far Gaster was willing to go to escape the Void, truth be told. Trying to steal someone's Soul, that was going way too far, no matter how desperate he was. There had to have been another way to escape that didn't involve hurting anyone. Still, in the end, he'd made things right, and healed Mira's Soul. And he'd seemed like he was being honest when he promised not to hurt anyone for his experiments again.

It was complicated. Sans was glad Gaster was back, and he'd missed him a lot while he was gone. But he also knew he'd have a whole new set of nightmares to worry about from now on; arriving too late to save Mira, for one...

Sans forced himself to focus back on the conversation as Papyrus spoke again. Papyrus's question caused him to think silently for a bit. Would Mira be alright with Gaster hanging out around the house so much? She seemed to have forgiven him easily, but he still wouldn't blame her for feeling uncomfortable being around Gaster for long periods of time after what had happened. Sans knew he should ask her first, before talking with Gaster about it. Just to make sure. After all, he didn't want her to feel uncomfortable, when she was already stuck down here until they could find a way to get her past the barrier...

"i'll ask, bro. i'm sure he's looking forward to catching up with you, too." Sans replied. Well, at least Papyrus seemed cheerful again, and eager to catch up with Gaster. Sans had been getting rather worried how everything that had happened today would affect Papyrus, but as usual, his brother seemed to be trying to make the best of everything. Sans smiled slightly; he'd always been impressed by how optimistic Papyrus could be, even when things got tough.

(::: Sans seems so beaten down, poor thing. Mira is gonna try to give em a pep talk later!)

Papyrus’s optimistic nature returning in spades as he was already feeling much better than earlier, there was a sense of relief in the air that hadn’t been there before...almost as if things were in for a change for the better despite the odd circumstances that had brought back someone he had long since assumed had been turned to dust ages ago. Sure, this was all very, very strange to the skeleton but it wasn’t anything he couldn’t weather as usual!

He was -very- great after all!

Now that their apparent father was back the younger of the brothers was determined to catch up on what had been inevitably lost with...well, wherever he had been, Sans already having told him that he would need to ask the third skeleton directly since it was a long story to just tell over the phone.

“Good plan!~ I will hope to see you back home soon! As for our human child Alia,
I have prepared her a place already in our crowded home so please do not worry about her either!”, Beaming confidently as he had, through either magic or sheer willpower that only one as great as he could harness, created a area in the often not used sub basement
Of their home specifically for Alia, Papyrus figured it could work well for their seemingly always expanding family lately.

Hanging up the phone in his usually sudden way, Papyrus soon focused his attention back on Alia as he grinned happily like he had found 100g out of the blue, “Sorry that took so long, little human! It seems my brother has found someone very important who was able to heal the other, ill human who fell down here a few weeks ago!”,


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

Mira honestly growing a bit curious as her mind wandered to how Papyrus must not have known that Gaster was his father, she until now really hadn’t had a reason to contemplate the parentage of her skeleton friends nor the fact that monsters obviously had to come from somewhere just as humans did. It was all pretty strange to think about for the girl that was accustomed to a human mindset, but this odd Underground world only seemed it had more and more layers the more she learned.

Waiting patiently for Sans to finish his call with his brother as she watched Alphys show Gaster around the lab, Mira grew a bit curious as she observed the tall skeleton’s almost doll-like form, the holes in his hands being quite interesting to her as she hesitated on asking if they had a purpose at all or were simply part of his anatomy.

She was still incredibly nervous, but she understood that this wasn’t the same monster who had attempted to steal her Soul in the Void, her blushing ever so slightly when she spoke up in a attempt to make conversation, “I-if it’s okay for me to ask...uh, those holes in your palms, do they hurt at all?....Sorry if it’s intrusive to ask, but I haven’t s-seen any monsters with anything similar yet...”.

(Probably a good idea, he's definitely had a rough day, but don't worry, he'll be alright!)

..........
//Alphys' Lab

Sans smiled as he listened to Papyrus talk about how he had created a place for Alia. As usual, Papyrus had thought ahead to help out even with all the confusing things going on. "thanks bro," he said gratefully, figuring Alia would appreciate having a place to stay. Considering Papyrus had done quite well with setting up a room for Mira, Sans was sure he'd done a good job preparing one for Alia too. Speaking of Alia, she was probably still expecting a tour of the Underground, and he felt rather bad for disappearing for so long after promising her one. Hopefully the library books or exploring on her own or with Papyrus was keeping her entertained...

Sans chuckled a bit when Papyrus hung up suddenly in his typical fashion, for him it was a reminder that some things would never change, no matter how confusing things got or what unexpected events occurred. Well, Papyrus was expecting him and Mira to be back home soon, and Sans didn't want to disappoint him, so he turned his attention to the other three in the room. Seeing that Mira seemed to be having a conversation with Gaster, he just listened silently. It would be rude to interrupt, after all.

Sans was truly glad for Papyrus's optimism; though he himself didn't understand how it was possible to be so optimistic, Sans was relieved that Papyrus could still find the good in almost every situation. Sans had often struggled with staying positive, even if he did his best to hide it. It was very impressive to him that Papyrus didn't seem to let anything get him down for long. Maybe he should try focusing on the positives himself... After all, things did seem like they were slowly starting to get better, especially compared to how bleak things seemed earlier. Mira was healed, Flowey didn't seem like he was planning to reset or hurt anyone now, and Gaster was back. Sans would just try to focus on that.

.........

Gaster was quite impressed by many of the experiments Alphys had done while he was gone, and made sure to tell her as much seeing that she was still quite anxious and could probably use a boost in confidence. When Mira spoke up, he turned to her, inwardly somewhat surprised she had started a conversation with him after everything that had happened today. Gaster was relieved that she was comfortable enough to do so, as he'd been a bit worried his presence in the Underground would upset her.

Though, he could tell she was still nervous, so he smiled reassuringly as he replied. "Ah, it's no problem at all. They don't hurt at all. They are a result of an experiment I did long ago. Before my disappearance, in fact." Gaster certainly couldn't fault anyone for curiosity, being a scientist and all. Besides, he knew the holes in his hands were quite unusual, and even many monsters had likely wondered about them. Back when they remembered him, at least.


..................
//Snowdin

Alia couldn't help but overhear Papyrus's side of the conversation after walking back over, and she smiled as she heard that he had prepared a place for her. Though she felt a bit concerned hearing the house was apparently crowded already; she hoped that she wouldn't be imposing on the skeletons or the other human who lived there. Still, Papyrus seemed cheerful as he spoke about it, so she supposed he didn't have any problems with it and didn't seem to think the others would either.

Even if it was crowded, Alia felt that might be nice; it was certainly better than being ignored, especially since both Sans and Papyrus were so nice. She was actually rather excited. Had she finally found a home where she felt like she belonged? She hoped so...

When Papyrus suddenly hung up and spoke to her, Alia smiled back, and quickly replied, "Oh, it's alright! I'm glad everything worked out." She was relieved to hear the ill human had been healed. She was also glad to see how happy Papyrus was now. It seemed like the news had really cheered him up.
