Undertale: The Novel - Chapter 22 (continued)
I tried to brush off some of the dust on my hands, but my clothes were so dusty now that it didn't really help, so I shrugged it off and walked down the hall to the other door on the left. This doorway led into a gray corridor that ended in a right turn, and just after the turn was a large opening with a carpet of gray leaves littering the entrance. Vines grew along the gray brick walls, and although the hallway continued on and led to another right turn, I knew that this was where I needed to go. Still, curiosity got the best of me, and I passed the opening and turned right at the end of the hall, which led me down a very long flight of stairs to the basement. In the room at the bottom, I found seven coffins, all the same size and shape and marked with a heart. The only difference between them was the color of the heart on each one; the one closest to me was marked with a red one. [It's as comfortable as it looks,] said the other voice in my head, and I decided I had seen enough of th

CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO: Megalovania
The dream opened with me standing in a dark room, on a black-lit platform overlooking a seemingly bottomless abyss. I always hated it when my dreams dropped me right into an action sequence without giving me any context on how I got there and what I was doing. And I knew for sure that an action sequence was about to start, because Mettaton was standing in the middle of the platform, his interface staring me down in angry red, as if he had been expecting me.
"My, my," he said over the soft sound of whirring machinery. "So you've finally arrived. After our first meeting, I realized... something ghastly. You're not just a threat to monsters... but humanity as well. Oh, my. That's an issue. You see, I can't be a star without an audience. And besides... There are some people...I want to protect."
I assumed he was referring to Alphys, who was probably hiding somewhere with all the monsters she was able to evacuate. But I didn't buy into the act. Just like Brat

CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE: It's Raining Somewhere Else

At the top of the stairs, I found the Nice Cream monster standing at his cart on the left-hand side of the landing, and on the right-hand side stood the two royal guards I ran into earlier. "Hey! It's you again!" the vendor called out as I came closer. "Business is excellent here! These two fellas bought all my ice cream! I've actually sold out of everything!" He paused as if out of embarrassment, then added "Sorry." I started to turn my attention towards the guardsmen, but then he called to me again. "Wait! I've still got something for you!" I turned to face him. "A big smile! How about that!" He gave me an ecstatic grin, and I smiled back and gave him a thumbs-up before walking over to where the guardsmen stood. Even if he had anything left in his cart, I was hungry for something more than ice cream, and at any rate, I was glad to see he was doing well. The market here had to be better than anywhere else in the Underground.

"Oh, hey,"

CHAPTER TWENTY: Spider Dance
There was another gray monster there to greet me when I got out of the L3 elevator, a humanoid creature about my height with large round eyes that stared blankly ahead. I went up to the monster, and it spoke without turning to acknowledge me, that vacant expression still on its face. "It makes sense why Asgore took so long to hire a new Royal Scientist. After all, the old one...Dr. Gaster. What an act to follow! They say he created the Core. However, his life...was cut short. One day, he fell into his creation, and..." The monster paused before finishing with "Will Alphys end up the same way?"
I shuddered as I walked by, but the monster still didn't look at me. When I reached the doorway to the next room, I turned around, and just as I predicted, the monster was gone. I tried to put those words out of my head, but that last sentence kept echoing in my mind and making my stomach turn. Poor Dr. Gaster, to hold such a prestigious position in the king's court,

CHAPTER NINETEEN: Another Medium

A few steps away from where I found the Saving Star, Alphys called again. "S-see that building in the distance?" she said when I answered the phone. "That's the Core. The source of all power for the underground. It converts geothermal energy into magical electricity, by...Uh, anyway, that's where we're going to go. In the Core is an elevator directly to Asgore's castle. And from there...you can go home."

Those last words echoed in my mind as Alphys hung up and left me in silence. I kept walking down the road, but my steps were slow from the heat and the weight of my thoughts. Ever since I woke up from that first awful dream, all I've wanted was to leave this place, and now that I'd seen more of what these monsters are capable of, that hadn't changed. I couldn't truly feel safe until I was back in the world I knew and understood. But once I resurfaced on Mt. Ebott, what would I do then? Where exactly was home? The city? Mr. Fox's house? Or should I jus

CHAPTER EIGHTEEN: Metal Crusher
By the time I woke up, the overhead lights were back on, although I couldn't hear anyone else around. With a prayer of thanks for a restful night free of nightmares, I got out of bed, changed back into my clothes, and took stock of my inventory. [I better get out of here soon,] I thought as I rummaged through the bag. [Or else I'm gonna have to get creative. There's only enough underwear in here to last a week.] Once again, the only consumable thing on me was the slice of butterscotch pie, my only connection to Toriel since she still wouldn't answer her phone. [Maybe I can go without breakfast today...] But as soon as I thought that, my stomach protested with a loud grumble. There was still no sound coming from downstairs, so I rode the escalator down and made my way over to the kitchen area. Sure enough, Dr. Alphys was nowhere to be found; I couldn't even see her feet under the bathroom door. My stomach growled again, and with a tinge of guilt, I opened

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN: Alphys
The laboratory doors parted open, and with no one to greet me, I started down the dimly lit corridor. The pale green walls and blue tile floor helped to reflect what little light there was, and most of that light was focused on me, as if I were about to walk out onto a stage. There was no hint that anyone was waiting inside; the hallway was empty, and the only sound I could hear was the humming of technology. At the end of the corridor was a wider room, also empty, and the first thing that caught my attention was the large machine against the wall that looked like an old arcade game. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move on the screen, and when I turned to look, I found myself staring at the back of my head. [Is that...me?] I approached the screen and my head grew larger in it, and when I turned to the side, the image of me turned as well. I turned around and found the camera on the wall opposite the machine, and a light was projecting from it, the

CHAPTER SIXTEEN: Dating Fight
When I followed the path leading north from the river bank, I found myself right in front of Gerson's shop. I considered stopping in to look for a gift for Undyne, but then I decided I didn't want to put this off any longer than I had to. Besides, I had no idea how long the rest of the journey would take, and I had to be careful with my money. The dimensional box was still sitting outside the store, and I took a quick peek inside, but nothing in there seemed appropriate for the occasion. Finding my way to Undyne's house from here wasn't difficult; I remembered where everything was from yesterday. Turning left in front of Gerson's, I came to the square and took the first northward path on the left, and just as I predicted, Papyrus was standing at Undyne's door, waiting as patiently as ever. I don't know why he was so certain I would come, but I was relieved at not having to go into Undyne's house alone. As I came closer to the house, I could hear someone in

CHAPTER FIFTEEN: Spear of Justice
It was still pitch black in the cavern when I woke up for the second time, and the days I'd spent without sunlight were starting to throw off my biological clock. But there was no point in waiting around, and if I was early enough, maybe I could make it out of Waterfall before Undyne picked up my trail again. After stretching out my stiff muscles, careful not to stand up and risk exposing myself, I pulled the Crab Apple out of my bag and had myself a quick breakfast. The first bite caught me by surprise; while the color reminded me of a red delicious, the fruit was as sour as a Granny Smith. Still, by the time I was down to the core, I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was waiting for me down the path I had not yet traveled. I looked both ways before emerging from the grass, then turned right and right again to follow the only other road available to me other than the one I had come down. The air was full of little yellow lights, fireflies p

Undertale - Chara's Song
Long ago I was alone, with no place to call home
Hated by the world I knew, and nothing I could do
Things would never be okay, and so I ran one day
Climbed up to the mountaintop to throw my life away
Fell into a gaping hole, to what I didn’t know
I’d heard all the tales of those who met their end below
Woke up and became aware, I’d never been so scared
Looked around and called for help, but there was no one there
Then a voice and a face
Came and met me in this place
He was kind, he wasn’t scared
It was the first time someone cared
He brought me back to his home
I saw the castle and the throne
And I would stay determined
Child of the king and queen
I would give them hope and dreams
I wanted to set them free
Said “I have a plan, listen to me
I’ll take my life, you’ll take my soul
We’ll cross the barrier, leave this hole
With seven souls, we’ll save the day”
He wasn’t sure, but he said “Okay”
And we would be det

CHAPTER FOURTEEN: Battle Against a True Hero
I had only taken a few steps into the next room when I noticed more plaques on the walls to my left, and ever curious, stopped to read the first one. "Hurt, beaten, and fearful for our lives, we surrendered to the humans. Seven of their greatest magicians sealed us underground with a magic spell. Anything can enter through the seal, but only beings with a powerful soul can leave." I paused before going on to the next passage. Mr. Fox told us that humans sealed the monsters underground after the war, but the implications of that never really hit me until now. To think there was once a time when humans could use magic, when all the nuns tried to tell us there was no such thing. My mind raced with thoughts of finding some hint down here as to who these great magicians were and where they lived. If they passed down what they knew to their descendants, then maybe somewhere in the world, there were people who still knew how to use magic. [Maybe wh

CHAPTER THIRTEEN: Ghost Fight
My whole body felt numb when I returned to the world, and the only part I could feel was my head, which throbbed with a pain the likes of which I'd never felt before. All around me was blackness, and as I lay paralyzed, my mind raced with a million fears. [Is this permanent? Will I never be able to walk again? Have I gone blind? Am I having a concussion? Did I die?] Dead silence filled the air, and I wondered whether that should tell me how deep I had fallen or if my headache was just blocking my hearing. Then a voice, young, gentle, and unfamiliar, cut through the fog in my head, although I couldn't tell from what direction. I tried to open my eyes, but my body was too weak to do even that, so I lay still and gave the voice my full attention.
"It sounds like it came from over here..." it said. "Oh! You've fallen down, haven't you...? Are you okay? Here, get up..." There was a short pause before it spoke again. "Chara, huh? That's a nice name. My name is..

CHAPTER TWELVE: Waterfall
As soon as I stepped out of the room and into the adjacent hallway, my head fell into a haze and my thoughts suddenly became fuzzy. Though I clearly remembered waking up that morning, I started to feel as if I was dreaming and nothing around me was real. In the center of the hallway, there was a dull gray door that seemed very out of place against the dark blue wall and floor. [Maybe I really am dreaming.] I opened the door and entered into a room with no walls or ceiling, just a gray path leading to an open floor and all around that, a dark void. In the middle of the floor stood a figure dressed in a flowing black suit, as still and as thin as if he were a cardboard cutout and not an actual person. I walked up to the man and looked into his hollow black eyes, one long and wide, the other shaped like a sideways crescent moon. His face was ghostly white with a small crack running down one side to meet his eye, another on the opposite side connecting his other e

CHAPTER ELEVEN: Undyne
I woke up the next morning to a light turning on in the living room and the sound of footsteps coming down the stairs. Facing the couch, I couldn't see who was approaching, but I found out soon enough when he spoke up, cutting through the morning silence.
"Lazy bones," Papyrus scolded, sounding refreshed and ready for action. "Couldn't even make it up the stairs, could you? Well, it's time to get up now, or you'll be late for work!"
Still half asleep, I couldn't figure out why Papyrus would think it was Sans lying on the couch. Then I shifted a little and realized there was something draped over me, something soft and warm and blue. Sans' hoodie.
"I have a meeting with Undyne this morning," Papyrus spoke again, "so if you want breakfast, you better get a move on!"
Just then, a small POOF! sound came from behind Papyrus, and I heard Sans say "Okay, sure. What are we having?"
I peeked out from under the hoodie and saw Papyrus turning his head back and forth between

CHAPTER TEN: Dating Start
Everyone in Snowdin Town was going about their business when I returned, and as a new set of unfamiliar carols played in the square, I thought about how I should prepare for my very first date. I never thought it would happen before I turned thirteen, the age when the nuns finally let up some of their restrictions on us, let alone that it would be with a magical talking skeleton. [Will this world ever cease to amaze me?] Truthfully, I never thought anyone on Earth would want to go on a date with me. Most people I knew only liked either boys or girls, and since I was neither, I figured that ruled out the possibility of anyone taking interest in me altogether. No one ever told me that I would grow up to be beautiful or handsome, and while the nuns kept insisting that wasn't important, that true beauty came from inside us, they've said it at least once to every other child in their care. But none of that mattered now. Now, someone had his eye on me, and I was goi

The Brightest Bulb

Fall 2018
       I used to believe I was the brightest bulb in the room. That was before I started rolling with my board game crew in Canada. They humbled me by granting me what I’d always longed for: a worthy opponent. And they trained me into the legend I am today. But this is not that story. This is the story of my new crew, the friends I made when I moved back to Connecticut after college, and my weekly attempts to show them the light.
       We’re a group of five, but we often end up playing as four, since the newlyweds always insist on teaming up. No one protests anymore, because we know by now it’s better this way. When we first started playing together, Dre kept showing Missy his resource cards and asking for her input, and he even acted confused and she got indignant when we called them out for cheating. I invite her because she’s my sister, him because they come as a pair. She

       “Does your family support Osama bin Laden?”
       Five years after 9/11, I was chatting with my sixth grade history teacher after class when she suddenly asked me that. I felt my blood go still. I felt the lurid light of the New Hampshire classroom shift into the stark contrast of an interrogation room in my mind. I started to panic like I was in trouble. Not just with her, but with the government, as though by asking, she had somehow made it true. I tried my best to seem casual.
       “I don’t really know who that is.”
       It was the truth. I only had the vaguest awareness at the time of what he had done, and my understanding of 9/11 was muddled with that of America’s occupation of Iraq, my family’s homeland, which during the most intense year of the war had experienced a 9/11 every w

Thank You for the Moon
Thank You for the Moon
Yussra MT Ebrahim
10/18/2018
I can't look at You, Allah
or even the sun You made
by its light I am too awed
of its fire I am afraid
I can't look at You, Allah
even the mountain crumbled
humbled as it beheld
I can't look at the sun
it would blind and burn me
leave me shelled
I can't look at You, Allah
or a photon of Your light
only its reflection
can I gaze upon at night
the moon is a blessing
a clever creation to reveal
though I am blind and deaf
I have fingers to feel
since the Creator is Most Glorious
and even creation is too much
a reflection of creation
is all I can touch
how diluted my perception of You
the moon all my eyes can stand
my mind must not be able
to so much as understand
a fraction of a fraction
of the cosmos You command
I praise You for the sun
but there are limits to me
it is only through Your moon
that I can look at You and see

I enjoy a good walk in the woods or trip to the beach on nice days. No need to thank me for llamas, just give me one in return and that will be thanks enough.
I'm not sure how many of you care about this, but in light of the new trailer for Undertale on the Nintendo Switch being released, I feel the need to address it before anyone asks. No, I will not be incorporating Mad Mew Mew into Undertale: The Novel. I may throw in an "Easter egg" reference to it in the epilogue (as I was planning to do with the PS4 exclusive dog shrine), but nothing more than that. It is not essential to the game, and I want the novel to focus on the core aspects of it. I hope no one is too disappointed by this.
