SecuriTale: 74 Pg02 (side Sans)
After what feels like an eternity and only seconds, Sans shuts his sockets. He mustn’t remain there, staring up at his angel as he’d uselessly done in his dreams. Stared, yearned, accomplished nothing. ‘almost there, princess. i won’ let ya down.’ Pressing his hand harder upon his soul once more, Sans opens his sockets and strides towards the door. A wooden one with ornate, ebony vines etched into the umber grain; he notices no lock, opting to save a magic blast until certain it won’t budge. He reaches for the door— BAM ‘whoa!’ Sans flickers several feet backwards, nearly striking the ir

Tangled tendrils encircle the castle, woven together in a sort of organized chaos. Any gaps are bisected by their thorns, defying Sans' large body the option to crawl through them. ‘heh, too much work.’ He smirks at the barrier; the dim of this place leaves the dark tendrils blacker than they are, the green near erased. The faint light of his pupil lights snuff out. A breath. Then a slit of cyan swells open in his left socket. Faint wisps of fire lick at the bone as a blaster opens its wide maw over Sans’ left shoulder. ‘not too much. gotta save some fer later.’ The blast of energy singes his Gaster-Blaster pau

We're Invincible
“Maru! Don’t, it’s too high!” Castor shouted, his voice pinched with emotion. He paced back and forth while his hands tugged at the base of his tunic, helpless to aid his request. Above him, Maruzu giggled as she hauled herself onto another branch, straddling it with ease. “Please, come down!” “Not now! I’m almost there!” Maruzu hollered back; the bright smile she wore was the opposite of her twin’s panicked frown. Even several feet above him, she could see the glisten of his beautiful red eyes. Sunlight peered through the cumulus herd, nearly bleaching the lavender of his hair. The

“It’s okay, Maru, don’t overthink the answer.” Castor cooed gently to the girl seated upon his crossed legs. He snuck a kiss into Maruzu’s hair while she huffed at the book on her lap. After a moment of fidgeting, Maruzu shook her head, defeated. “I’m sorry, Cas…” Frowning until her forehead was filled with wrinkles, Maruzu turned and hid her consternation in his clavicle. “I’m nothing but a burden on you.” “Don’t say that, Maru.” Pushing the book to the floor, Castor wrapped up Maru in his arms and stroked her back. “We are Gemini.

Surreal-tember D3: Food
“Oh right,” Maruzu exclaimed before dashing back into the market. Her groceries bounced at her hip but she paid it no mind. A bright smile hidden beneath her mask, the delighted puppet snatched up the one item she’d nearly forgotten. It had never mattered so much before. “Odd that this is his favourite.” She shrugged before carefully placing her newest acquisition out of harm. The soft tones of the peach were warm in the twilight glow as Maruzu raced back towards her cabin. She knew food was a meager apology but nevertheless hoped a smile would grace Osseus’ mouth tonight.
S
Surreal-tember D2: Tall
Being of shorter stature, Maruzu was used to inclining her neck to suss out a customer or analyze how to best an opponent that outsized her. Still, those heights were nothing like the shadow she’d sometimes glimpse on her way home. The shape might have seemed like a tree were it not for the scanning ability of her eye. Tall, warm and graceful, this being blended with nature and piqued her curiosity. A dryad, she knew, and respectfully kept her distance. Yet her attention always fell in his direction when she felt his presence. A looming yet comfortable Saturn shadow.
S
Surreal-tember D1: Body Part Swap
There are those in the world who desire more. It might be to mimic the winged Mercury and run with faster legs. To want not for electricity and call upon Jupiter when they see fit. Others prefer the strength and ephemeral yet immense beauty of Saturn upon their bodies. But nothing is without sacrifice. A limb for a limb, body parts swapped for metal and crystals. Most are willing and pursue their selfish desires. However, it is not impossible for someone to have been constructed with pure love. A cursed life still but one she will never take for granted.

‘i’m sorry, kid.’ The afternoon joined in the comfortable theme of the week. Sunny but enough breeze to avoid sweaters or idle sweating. Perfect for a session of training. Crystal blue eyes had shone when Frisk gazed at him that morning, her hands sweeping and smile bright. Several weeks of impatient waiting finally worthwhile. “Master Papyrus’ Course of Intense Effort and Spaghetti,” a subject of interest for both human youths. However, between work and everyday demands, it took several weeks before either could claim a mutual day for themselves. So gleeful was Frisk that morning, her smile bright and aim

I'm Broken
I do not remember where I set out to reach. Looking back shows only darkness; there is no home waiting for me. Whatever I had, it is naught but shadows. With every step, I hear a crack; whatever surface I have discovered cannot bear the weight I impose. No surprise; seems like my existence has always been an anchor, dragging down any who reach out to take me with them. Spiderwebs cascade beneath my feet; fragments chip off, cut my skin. I laugh, then cry, but still I fall into the fragments of a heart shattered by time and reality.

Drowning
Uncertainty, a cold pool of water with its breadth unknown, stretching far beyond the horizon. My tears are hot but the warmth is fleeting; they disappear somewhere near my chest. Insecurity doesn’t strike at first; it lingers there, whispering, its words binding the heart with sharp, unforgiving thorns. I thrash and claw at its arm but I haven’t the strength to escape. The air rushes from my lungs, the bubbles large and clear…then smaller and dull. I’m scared; I’m hurting; I scream but Silence turns away, crushing whatever hope remained. I am alone and cannot breathe. It is so dark…

I know I'm a little late in saying so but thank you very much to the person who extended my Core membership the other day!! I can't name names because it was given anonymously, but it was a sweet gesture and I'm grateful to you, whoever you are. <3
Sometimes being able to read a story critically makes it difficult to enjoy a story that falls apart if you think about it even a little.  I wanted to love KHIII. I wanted to be embraced by the feels that I saw a lot of other fans talking about. I wa ...
