The fact that Undyne is seemingly the last of her kind with any morals whatsoever is saddening. You sadistic fuck, you truly are an artist for literature. Bringing your stories to life with your illustrations only make the experience even better

Setting aside the ethics and morality (or lack thereof) of Alphy’s suggestion for a moment, let’s remember that she is basing this on no evidence or research, and her track record for experiments going wrong (successes being very few) suggests that her advice is very unreliable. So, uh... piss off, Alphys.

Hmph, so what Alphys suggests is a classic case of the "sacrifice the few for the many" mentality. What makes it worse is she tries to justify the murder by suggesting that "Sans might want you to do it," and has no actual evidence to back this up. And to add salt to injury, she's trying to get Undyne to do the deed so that she doesn't have to get blood (or dust in this case) on her own hands. It's too bad we already know what happens to Sans...but all of a sudden you can't feel but feel a lack of empathy for Alphys for even suggesting this garbage.

Many times it starts with good intentions, but if you're capable of justifying your own depravity  then it starts becoming very easy to justify anything you see as beneficial to your cause. And if you murdered someone once, you can certainly do it again. After all, if you did it once, what's stopping you there? It's one hell of a slippery slope morality-wise, and it's how infamous dictators in real life became so depraved over time.

That went completely left field for me XD I thought she'd suggest using fallen monsters' dust or dump a couple of still living ones into the core. But for Sans to repeat what his brother's actions caused? Poor Sans gonna be in the void, paying his bro a visit. 

Kind of glad that didn't happen, but Alphys needs to seriously chill.

she lied to make everyone think she was cooler than she really was, remember? the whole point of the "alphys date" was to acknowledge that. as for why she'd be lying now? the way she looks just makes it seem like she wants sans dead for no reason.

:icondarkmythicpsychiccat:
I might get beheaded for this but COME ON UNDYE! I know your stubborn but I don't know maybe Alphys is right Sans would give the shirt off his back to help his friends! Maybe if it means taking his own life to reboot the Core He wouldn't think twice on it, even if it means saving everyone he loves like Paps! Even if it's a shot in the dark as much as it might hurts it might be the logical thing to do.
But who knows since this is the past maybe the FEAR in Aliza would help to but she didn't exist yet so.. yeah.
Still Love the Horrortale Series.

for a society that's thrived on the idea of killing humans for souls, alphys is really in the right here.

i'm not sure i get what 'power' sans has that could uplift the core, though? canon only shows him with kr and that's only good for fighting people with high exp. not to mention whatever he has, shouldn't papyrus have, too?

magic is inherent to the monster. hence why all dreemurrs have fire powers. so whatever sans has, paps should have, too.

and even if that were the case, toriel and asgore arent related. sans and papyrus are.

if you want the proper answer its bc i dont think sans has as much power as the fandom gives him credit for. he's got kr and that's it, otherwise he's totally useless and can be killed with a snowball. if people are gonna give him superpowers i just wish theyd give papyrus them too, undyne mentions he's 'pretty freaking tough' which should already put him above sans' 1 attack.

I am obviously with Undyne on this XD This is horrid and cruel. I would rather die with friends and family than sacrifice someone I see as a close friend or family, even IF he was depressed or wanted to die. And using his depression as an excuse to kill him makes me not like Alphys even more. This is tugging at all my heart strings!!

I'm on Team Pre-insanity Undyne. Die as friends. Don't stain your soul with exp.

Implying that Sans' depression is him wanting to die just... That's low. That's really low. Despicable even.

So after this, Sans spends a year "busting his skull" trying to fix things. He and Paps are like the sole beacons of hope in Snowdin, keeping people fed as best they can and encouraging them not to give up. Meanwhile, the lack of progress frustrates Undyne, she believes that Sans is *still* slacking. Perhaps Alphys keeps prodding the "alternate power" issue during that time. Who's to say?

Then pages 36 and 37 happen. Undyne tries to kill him, and everything just snowballs from there. Maybe after Sans leaves she remembers herself. Remembers her promise. What kind of hero tries to kill their friend? Someone they were supposed to protect.

Or maybe she leaves him be for Papyrus' sake. Who knows?

Another heart wrenching page that again gives a tough question. Great work SAS!
