Polybius!Sans aka WTF are you doing Muse?! by GhostLiger Polybius!Sans aka WTF are you doing Muse?! by GhostLiger
[Edit] Electricfox5 picked up on a mistyped number. Easy mistake to make XD Thankies Sans Chat Icon 2 [/Edit]

This is not a Curiousity comic page. No, this is a very stupid idea my muse couldn't seem to ditch.

Polybius!Sans, an AU version of Sans based on that old urban legend of the Polybius arcade machine. I confess I'm quite fond of that one and lately I've been watching a few videos on the subject, particularly ones mentioning the Polybius Square. And... well, you know you're an Undertale fan when your first thought is "How about a skeleton monster that speaks in numbers rather than fonts?"

I haven't thought too much about his abilties yet, but it'll probs involve old arcade machines and the ability to create psychoactive effects in other monsters and humans.

So yeah, now he's made, what's gonna happen to this guy? Not 100% sure yet. I'm loathe to start another AU yet while I'm still finding my feet with the other two, but as silly and random an idea he is I don't just want to shove him under the rug. Leaning towards putting him into What If Whotale somewhere. In fact, I think I actually have a way to make that work... I'll see what happens. Maybe I can add bit more to his outfit while I'm at it.

Oh God... I'm going to have to hand translate all his dialogue into numbers aren't I?

If you don't know what to do with him, maybe let him adopt from someone?
Because the idea is really interesting and I heard of Polybius before, so he shouldn't get forgotten xD

I did think about that, but I think I'm gonna hold onto him. I'm growing fond of him and the idea to put him in WIWT. Since I posted, I've had a couple of ideas for a standalone AU for him, though it'd probs just be ideas rather than a full worked on story.

Well, I'm eager to see more of him^^
But don't forget Revenanttale and Curiosity about WIWT^^

Never fear, Curiousity's getting my attention now. Thinking I might draft out a few pages this time. Planning out the panels is one of my biggest banes so being able to jump straight into ready planned pages will help a lot. XD

Definitely. Page 10's layout is done now, so I'm laying out 11 now. Not sure how many to do before I start sketching and colouring. Really I want to lay them all out, but it's been over a month I think since the last page already.

I guess so, but it's the same with Logtale too xD And I realized that LogTale will become 1 year old next month OwO

I like the idea of a Sans speaking in numbers...

...I just wish I knew what he was saying xD

I thought about putting the translation up, but at the same time I want to see if anyone will try and translate it. It'll be a good way to check I haven't mistyped any numbers XD That said, I can note you the translation if you're still curious XD

Aaaand just as I'm typing that, Electricfox5 just translated it in person and discovered I mistyped a number XD

I'm still curious though, can you send me the translation please? :)

XD Think how I felt actually having to translate them! Actually no, translating was time consuming, but it was nothing compared to the effort I had to put into trying to think what he was going to say in the first place! XD;

Thankfully I doubt he's going to only speak in numbers, but he'll probs still speak in PolybiusCPU.

I like that. It's realistic for someone talking in a non-native language. Reminds me of stories I've heard of WWII when english pilots couldn't communicate with polish pilots because they kept reverting to polish in the heat of battle XD
