(Had to post on Undertale's Anniversary! <3 =) )

Alia had genuinely just been nervous about making a mistake and wasn't upset with Mira at all, she figured she had probably just been trying to include her, and it wasn't her fault that being the center of attention, even briefly, made Alia so uncomfortable. Alia understood that most people probably didn't mind having attention on them, being more used to it and not associating it with anxiety as much as Alia did. Most of the humans on the surface hadn't minded it after all, and many even tried to become the center of attention frequently, something Alia had never really understood, but since their efforts typically made sure that everyone's attention was on someone else, Alia hadn't seen any problems with it. So maybe it made sense that Mira wouldn't have considered Alia wouldn't be the same.

Perhaps she should try to explain it, so Mira wouldn't think Alia was uncomfortable because of her specifically? That was the last thing Alia wanted... She really did appreciate the family taking her in like this, she didn't want any of them thinking they were upsetting her. She was a bit nervous about actually talking about it, in case anyone asked questions about what the surface had been like for her to try to figure out why she was so different from most human children in this regard.

Still, she figured she should reassure Mira since she seemed a bit tense despite her gentle smile as she tried to explain she hadn't actually meant Alia had to help her. She decided to wait until they reached the kitchen, though, not wanting a bunch of people to overhear. Though Papyrus was very nice, and Gaster seemed nice as well from what she had learned about him so far, she still didn't like having so much attention on her.

In the meantime, Alia nodded and smiled reassuringly at Mira; she didn't mind helping, she had just been very confused by how it had been worded as well as not liking having attention on her upon being apparently singled out. She stayed close to Sans and Chara as she made her way to the kitchen, feeling more comfortable because of their presences. When they reached it, she still stayed close to the two, needing their reassurance if she was going to speak up. Fortunately, both seemed to realize this, and Sans let her keep clinging to his hoodie sleeve while Chara floated close beside her.

"Um, it's alright... I just... Don't like having a lot of attention on me..." Alia stammered out nervously, but determined to reassure Mira she wasn't upset. "A-and I am kind of scared of accidentally breaking something..." she added in a much quieter tone, hugging Sans' hoodie sleeve a bit tighter.

Fortunately, Sans was quick to reassure her. "it's alright, kid, even if something did break, no one would be mad. but i'll be here to make sure nothing does break, yeah?" Gently ruffling her hair with his free hand, he smiled at her. When Alia nodded, he continued, "how about this, i'll dry the dishes, and you can put them away? i'll make sure they aren't slippery at all."

Alia nodded again, smiling gratefully. "Okay. Thanks, Sans."

"'snow problem, kid." Sans smiled, relieved everything had worked out. And he was quite proud of Alia for speaking up for herself without needing a bunch of prompting. Maybe she was starting to feel more comfortable here?

Sans was in complete agreement that three of them was the perfect amount for washing dishes, and since Mira seemed to have chosen the role of washing the dishes, he could dry them and make sure they wouldn't be slippery when Alia put them away. Glad to see Alia looking more cheerful about this, he grabbed a towel to be ready to start drying dishes, and as Mira finished washing one, he would carefully dry it and then hand it to Alia. She could mainly only reach the cabinets that were lower to the ground, but fortunately there was one for storing dishes that she could reach easily, so she started putting the dishes in there.

Sans also made sure to smile reassuringly at Mira, so she would know that everything was fine and not have to worry. Though Sans might have a reputation as a 'lazybones,' truthfully he didn't mind helping with tasks like this at all, most of that reputation having come from him being exhausted and depressed during Flowey's genocide runs and other situations that had been overwhelming. In fact, helping Mira and Alia with the dishes was rather fun. Sans was glad to see that now that the pressure was gone, Alia seemed happier as well.

....

Gaster smiled at Papyrus as he sat down, happy to have more opportunities to talk with his younger son. Though, he noticed Papyrus seemed less confident than usual, and he felt bad. It wasn't his intention to make Papyrus uncomfortable, though he could understand why he might feel like that around who he felt was a stranger even though Gaster was his dad. Of course, this was no one's fault but Gaster's own.

"It's really nice to be back, and to see you and Sans again. I missed you both so much..." Gaster replied. "Ah, well, truth be told even I am not entirely sure. The Void is quite strange and mysterious, even after all those years there I still could not give you a proper explanation for how it works. Not for lack of trying to figure it out, mind you." Gaster chuckled.

Wanting to reassure Papyrus, he added, "I know this is sudden, and that you don't really remember me, but you don't have to be nervous, you can just be yourself. I truly do just want to get to know you again. And... I'm very sorry for disappearing when you were both so young. I will do my best to avoid such... Impulsive decisions with regards to science in the future."

(Perfect x3!)


Mira was a naturally anxious, often times overthinking type of person who had a lot of their own trauma to deal with despite trying to care for others such as Alia and Sans so much of the time. It wasn’t unlike the girl to often think she was being…a bit too much for others, but Sans really was helping her a lot with his patience for her and his willingness to sit and talk with her when needed.


She knew the skeleton had a -lot- more on his mind to deal with though, but Mira wasn’t going to force him to talk about it even if she sensed he wasn’t fully okay. He seemed the type to be a expert at dodging around questions pertaining to himself, Mira having learned that on the day she had shown him that even humans pertained tiny bits of magic after all these years.


M-maybe she was just overthinking stuff though….yeah, they had to be it….Mira was putting way too much thought into ‘if’ she had upset Alia vs if she actually had done so, her taking a mental breath as she came to a conclusion to not overthink Alia, a literal child’s, capability to see her, a adults, inner dialogue.


“Yeah, I get ya~ I think everyone was just really excited to see you today is all”, Mira nodding as Alia explained that she didn’t like a whole lot of attention, she had the feeling this child was going to be going off on their own quite a bit to explore because of it, “You made a really good impression~”


Mira’s inner thoughts completely flustering at the cuteness of Alia clinging to Sans for comfort, it was nice to see that she was completely attached to the skeleton and seemed to have claimed him as a best friend, her heart flushing with warmth at the happy sight despite the predicament of getting her and Alia home being in the air.


Maybe…it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world for them to stay in this world a little longer though….after all, there was no real danger down here, right?


………………………..

Papyrus, long having been confident in himself and having seen himself as someone who didn’t really need to be afraid of anyone or anything, was right now feeling just a little bit intimidated by the mysterious figure before him who was apparently his ‘father’, even the kind and patient way that the doctor spoke just…making him feel off.


Sans was the only other skeleton that Papyrus knew so seeing someone that was so similar to him felt odd, as if this was all just some kind of big dream. Papyrus had been feeling rather ‘off’ this entire long day though even since he had met Alia and introduced her to some puzzles that were far too advanced for her age, the introduction of the old royal scientist only making things ‘weirder’


It was….honestly, a lot for the Great Papyrus to take in….


How did Sans seem to adapt to all this so easily??

For as much as he postured and talked so highly of himself Papyrus should have been able to talk with his fellow skeleton a lot more natural then this, his sockets furrowing as the constant grin on his face didn’t really give much emotion away like it would have with more expressive monsters.

“Sans has always been the more scientifically inclined one between us, even if he tries to hide it with his ‘lazy’ facade he thinks I don’t recognize. I’m sure he knows all about this Void you speak of and…uh, that strange machine he was working on for a while”, Papyrus rubbing the back of his skull nervously as he dropped the over happy facade that he put on for Mira and Alia, he may have been younger than Sans but it didn’t mean he couldn’t be just as serious when the time inclined.


Papyrus getting good vibes from Gaster though as he eventually settled his tense bones as the ambient sound of dishes being washed in the kitchen could be heard, it soothed him a little to know that the trio in the kitchen were seeming to get along so well.


“M-myself?? The Great Papyrus is always himself! Heh, never have been any different!”, Papyrus’s eye-lights brightening a bit as G proclaimed he could just be himself despite the air of uncertainty between them, the skeletons tenseness slipped away for a moment as he really was just left as himself, “I will naturally keep a eye socket on you to make sure you don’t just…disappear on us again, and even if you did Sans now seems to know where you ended up anyways, right?? I don’t know a lot about the void or how you even came back with Sans help, but….well, just be careful, okay?….I really don’t want to lose you again…”.

(Sorry for the delay, the past two weeks of school have been intense)

Alia beamed when Mira said she had made a good impression; truthfully, deep inside, she had been worrying about whether she was maybe too shy considering the others' various attempts to include her in activities and conversation. She didn't want to make them think she didn't appreciate everything they were doing by taking her in because she was so quiet and reserved a lot of the time. It was a relief to hear that they seemed to still have a positive opinion of her.

"Thank you... You're all really nice, I'm very happy here." Alia said with a smile. She wanted to reassure the family that her shyness wasn't due to anything they had done, it was just how she was. Alia was really enjoying helping Mira and Sans, now that she wasn't afraid of accidentally breaking any dishes. It was kind of calming, actually, and even funny when Chara occasionally told a pun. They always waited until after she put the dishes away, though, Alia noticed. She appreciated that, figuring they were trying to make sure that she wouldn't be distracted by the puns and drop anything.

It felt really nice to have people looking out for her here. This place really did feel like home to her. Smiling gratefully at Mira and Sans, as well as Chara when she was certain the other two weren't looking, Alia was able to relax, not feeling as nervous as she usually would as she put another bowl away.

Honestly, Alia wouldn't mind staying here, like this, and not return to the surface. The only issue was that Mira had seemed to want to return to the surface... What if she found a way to go back? What if she wanted Alia to go with her? Alia felt a bit sad at the idea of having to pick between staying with the skeletons, and staying with Mira. She liked being here with all of them! Still, if Mira really wanted to go back to the surface, Alia would feel bad if she stayed if she had an opportunity to return there.

Somehow, though, Alia managed to hide her internal conflict and kept smiling as she put away the dishes Sans handed to her after carefully drying them.

...

Sans was glad to see Alia relax, and continued carefully drying each dish before he handed it to her, not wanting anything to happen to ruin the calmness she seemed to be feeling now. Sans was feeling quite calm himself, the repetitive motions of drying the dishes and handing them to Alia giving him some time to think, something he'd needed quite badly with how fast everything happened today. Though he knew he'd need a lot more time to be alone with his thoughts, this was a start, at least.

...

Chara smiled as they watched the trio washing the dishes, seeing that Alia seemed really happy around the other two. It was nice to see her starting to open up a bit around the family that had taken her in, it reminded them of when they first started living with the Dreemurrs. They were determined to help as much as they could as she adjusted to living here.


.........

Gaster noticed that Papyrus still seemed a bit uncomfortable around him, but didn't comment on it and simply continued smiling reassuringly. After being gone for so long, it really shouldn't have been too surprising that Papyrus would feel a bit uncertain about him, so he was just going to do his best to reassure Papyrus and let him get used to this change at his own pace. Besides, Gaster also had quite a bit to get used to again, being back in 'reality' after spending so long in the empty Void.

Seeming slightly concerned when Papyrus mentioned Sans' 'lazybones' persona, Gaster had to admit he'd noticed that as well, though he'd been rather preoccupied dealing with being in the Void and trying to figure it out/how to get back and hadn't really put much thought into it, especially since over the past few days Sans had stopped being quite so 'lazy'. Perhaps he should check on Sans, and try to get to the bottom of whatever had been causing that.

Then again, Sans was the type to keep whatever is bothering him bottled up inside, so Gaster kind of doubted he would get any answers. Besides, considering how he'd disappeared, and the stuff in the Void... Gaster figured he probably had some work to do to regain Sans' trust before he'd be willing to explain the stuff that was bothering him anyway. Though he was a bit sad about that since he truly did want to help his sons, Gaster knew he had no one to blame but himself, so he resolved to do his best to make it up to his sons.

Noticing Papyrus looked nervous, he smiled reassuringly again. "That's alright, Papyrus. As curious as I may be, I have no desire to return to the Void. Some questions are simply not meant to be answered, I suppose." Gaster didn't want Papyrus to worry about him disappearing again to try to figure out the Void. Even if he'd believed it possible, he accepted that maybe this just wasn't supposed to be done. It certainly wasn't worth disappearing on his sons again, at any rate.

They'd probably never trust him again if he did.

Anyway, Gaster was happy to see Papyrus looking less tense and acting more like himself, and nodded, smiling reassuringly. "I'll be careful," he said, "I don't want to lose you and Sans again, either." Staying serious for a bit to show he meant it, Gaster eventually grinned. "So, would you like to tell me about your cooking lessons? Or making puzzles? Or anything else you'd like to talk about?"

Mira knew she was a bit of a awkward bundle of nerves when it comes to kids, but she was determined regardless to show Alia that she was a good, safe person to be around and that she could trust her just as much as she did Sans.


N-not that Mira was trying to -force- Alia to like her or anything…no, of course not. She was just self conscious and…okay, maybe she wanted Alia to like her just as much….just a bit….


It was just, Alia was the only other human down here, and….even if they were a kid they made Mira feel a bit less of a outsider.


‘Be the adult here Mira! It’s your job to look after Alia with the others’


Honestly, all these thoughts were likely a result of Mira’s less than stellar upbringing on the surface, but Alia was the one who needed love and comfort right now and it was her job to make sure Alia got this so she understood that life down here could be better than on the surface…..


“Alright! Dishes are done it looks like”, Mira handing off the last dish as she decided to -not- let her mind wander any longer on things, Mira couldn’t quite tell if Sans smile was just his natural facade or a genuine one but he seemed happy regardless so she didn’t question it, even if she sensed deep down he wasn’t okay, “That wasn’t so bad, hm?~”.

………………………

Papyrus was genuinely trying his best to get to know his once lost father the best he could, but even the unusually happy and confident skeleton couldn’t bite off the fact that he thought he was….simply not -good- enough for this clearly smart and distinguished scientist.


It was in Papyrus’s nature to always try his best though regardless of the situation, but Sans and now his ‘found
Dad’, They just seemed to have something he -lacked-…..


A certain depth he felt he didn’t have in himself? Or was it just his own inner demons talking?


None of this was to say that Papyrus didn’t trust G though! Far from it. If anything, he was curious about the scientists past before he had ceased to exist for the last decade or so to exist in….whatever the Void was composed of…


“Yeah….”, A small smile of relief appearing on the skeletons face as luckily G didn’t seem to desire to dwell on the intricacies of the past, neither did Paps for that matter, him laughing as G asked him if he was open to talking on his cooking hobby.


“Undyne has taught me excellent thus far in the arts of cooking! Of course, we did learn a bit from the other human as well a long while back on the way they do it on the surface!”, Papyrus vaguely mentioning one of the previous humans that had fallen, whether it was Chara or one of the other few occupancies of the past wasn’t specific as he rattled on, “I would really like to learn more someday….there are only so many books that fall down here to learn from “.

Mira speaking up brought Sans out of his thoughts; he definitely still had a lot to think through, but it had been nice to have a bit of a break from how busy the rest of the day had been. After carefully drying the last dish and passing it off to Alia, he watched as she put it away, trying to see how she was feeling. She seemed happy, and possibly a bit more confident, which was nice to see. "great job, kid," he said, gently ruffling Alia's hair with a smile. Alia giggled, seeming glad everything had gone well and that she hadn't dropped any dishes.

Sans turned to smile at Mira as well. "that was fun. i think the three of us made a good team." Alia nodded in agreement, smiling at both of them. Sans headed over to one of the cabinets and took out a chocolate bar, offering it to Alia. Seeing her grin made Sans smile more.

"Thanks, Sans!" Alia said cheerfully.

"'snow problem, kid." Sans laughed at his own pun, glad that Papyrus wasn't in the room to hear it. It had definitely been way too long since he'd told puns, but he knew the day had been rough for Papyrus so he didn't want to bother him even more by telling puns around him.

"That was a cool pun," Alia replied with a giggle, before starting to eat the chocolate happily. She seemed to look at nothing for a bit again, though by now Sans was pretty sure it was her imaginary friend, so he just turned back to Mira.

"how are you feeling?" he asked, still a bit concerned about her after her earlier injury. Though he certainly didn't want to seem like he was making a fuss over it or anything, it was a rather serious injury and he hoped that she truly was feeling all better and not simply pretending everything was fine because she didn't want to be encouraged to rest more. Sans really couldn't help but worry about his friends, after all.

.......

Gaster listened happily as Papyrus began speaking about his cooking lessons with Undyne, glad to be learning more about his son's life during his absence. Though he was somewhat curious when Papyrus mentioned learning from a human in the past, he figured it was probably Frisk, since they were the only other human Papyrus had met, as far as Gaster knew of. Papyrus had been far too young to be thinking about cooking lessons when Chara was alive, and the other humans that had fallen... Hadn't really had any opportunity to teach anyone anything before he or Alphys had found them.

Pushing those thoughts aside, Gaster focused on listening, and smiled reassuringly at Papyrus as he finished talking. "Well, it seems Mira is quite happy to cook with you, so I'm sure you'll have plenty of opportunities to learn more. While I'm certainly not an expert at human cooking techniques, I do have some recipes I could teach you as well."

Truthfully, Gaster wasn't exactly an incredible cook himself, though he did know the basics and had learned a few recipes here and there over the years prior to disappearing. Besides, he figured it would be fun to cook with Papyrus sometime, if he wanted to.
