Expect the Unexpected

Chapter Text

A small, dragon-like person walks up to the 4th wall, wings fluttering in anticipation.

“Hey y’all! I want to once again thank you guys for all of  the kudos and comments, they always make my day! I thought it would be a fun idea to do a q&a, so here it is! ...that sounded awkward didn’t it... whatever I’m too lazy to edit it- what was I talking about again?”

I pause for a second, before snapping my fingers, “Oh right! So I currently have each character in a room right now, and I’m gonna ask them your questions, give them whatever you gave them- did that make sense?- and take you as needed to whoever! Sorry but you’re gonna be stuck in anon form- I’m not sure how else to get you through the wall without it completely crumbling.”

I count on my fingers, mumbling under my breath, before nodding to myself.

“I’m pretty sure that’s all! I’ll just edit it later if I forget something… Oh! This is Kendoe by the way! I mean, you probably already assumed that, but better safe than sorry- you can call me Ken, Doe, Kendoe, or Rain! The last one is my nickname on discord… come to think of it I should link that… I’ll do it at the bottom of the chapter.”

My tail wags slightly and I shuffle on my feet a bit, “I guess we’ll start with questions directed to me specifically- just don’t be surprised when I step in for a few of the others’ questions, as they don’t know the answer themselves yet…”

 

From Sealbunnygem: 

Kendoe, in this au, is 'Kendoe' Minnie's online username?

 

I pause, “...It is now.”

 

From Pencil:

is this a FGoD multiverse? Is Minny supposed to help balance out the yin and yang sides??? also blue is baby and i love him

 

“Yup! Minny is kind of a middle ground for the yin and yang monsters! And I agree- Blue is best. Best Blue. BB. I should stop.”

I turn and walk into a door that wasn’t there before.

“Those are all of the questions for me, so now let’s get started on the skeletons! First up is gonna be Cl-”

*FRESH POOF*

“Sup broskis! Whatcha up to!”

Oh my gosh this is already painful-

“What the funk-!”

“Hey now, no need for unrad language like that brah!”

“Sorry Fresh, you scared me! What are you even doing here?? You aren’t in the story!”

Fresh’s grin grows slightly more sinister, and his glasses cast a threatening glow.

“Ya sure about that, fam? We don’t wanna leave my bro all on his lonesome, do we now?

Okay, look, I was already planning on adding him, but this just felt like the perfect introduction for him-

“Yeah, okay.” I manage to squeak out.

-and holy shut that was so much scarier than I thought it would be-

“I actually have a few things I want to ask you if you wouldn’t mind…”

“Sure my radtastic dude! Go ahead!”

-and now he’s back to normal as if that never happened.

...This is so painful wow-

 

From Sealbunnygum:

Fresh, WHAT ARE THOSE!?!?I

 

“These. Are. My. Crocs TM.”

Why-”

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Fresh, broski! Stay RAD Dude! Here is a totally tubular solar powered motorised skateboard! Enjoy!

 

“Oh nice ! This is super rad! Thanks brah!”

Fresh hops onto the skateboard, giving it a quick test run.

“It’s even in my favorite color!”

It was neon pink.

Lucky-

 

From xX_Wairwolf44_Xx:

To Fresh: honestly Fresh my boi, I don't have much to say, but what I do have to say holds great meaning. I love you bud and your not alone. No matter what just remember that someone cares about you and that you are loved.

 

Fresh remains silent for some time- almost appearing frozen- before letting out a small wet chuckle. He takes off his glasses, hurriedly wiping his eyesockets on his jacket sleeve. A small- real- smile plays on his lips.

“Thanks.”

I gently smile, patting Fresh on the back, “I have to go and continue the questions now, but know that a lot of us feel that way, okay? I’ll see you around.”

I turn and walk down the hall, hearing Fresh chuckle again, before the tell-tale sound of another FRESH POOF. I walk up to a door with the Undertale logo, knocking lightly before walking in.

“HELLO, THERE!”

“heya.”

“Hi, sorry for the confusion this likely caused, we just wanted to ask a few questions?”

Luckily, they both think that this is just a dream, so no random attacks and distrusting answers.

Classic just shrugs, closing his eyesockets.

Paprika side eyes his brother, before turning back to me “THAT IS PERFECTLY FINE! MAY WE ASK YOUR NAME?”

Opps, forgot to introduce myself-

“Call me Ken, I guess… these first few questions are for sans.”

“alright.”

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Classic, my favorite Skeleton~ I gift to you one ketchup bottle that is Papyrus's hight! Completely filled with ketchup!

 

WHY .”

“oh, wow, uh, thanks.”

Classic is blushing~

 

From 3jaager:

To probally classic. What kind of jobs do you all have?

 

“let’s see… i’m working with alphys on integrating monster tech, and paps here is a police officer- pretty good at it too-”

“I WOULD BE BETTER IF THEY GAVE ME ACTUAL CASES!”

“i’m sure they’ll give you something else soon bro.”

“IT’S BEEN A YEAR! THEY GIVE UNDYNE ACTUAL WORK! AND SHE’S BEEN AN OFFICER EVEN LESS TIME THAN ME!”

Classic just shrugs. “either way, i know stretch has been writing a book, blue’s taken up knitting, edge is training to be a chef, and red… i’m not actually sure what red is up to.”

“I’M PRETTY SURE HE’S JUST CONCENTRATING ON THERAPY AT THE MOMENT, BROTHER.”

Classic nods, “that’s good. ink and dream are just trying to figure out what’s keeping everyone here right now.”

I quickly walk out of earshot.

“The ‘bad guys’ are in hiding right now, as they don’t want the others to know that they also got pulled in by the machine.”

I walk back.

 

From Sealbunnygem:

Sans, snas!?

 

“uhh, what?”

 

From: xX_Wairwolf44_Xx

*disappointed glare and slowly shakes their head*

 

“WHAT DID SANS DO THIS TIME?”

“i honestly have no idea bro.”

I just stare into the camera like in the office.

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Paprika, you cook the best spaghetti in the multiverse to my knowledge! So please take this book on 100 different ways to cook and eat spaghetti!

 

“OH! THANK YOU VERY MUCH MYSTERIOUS STRANGER! I WILL PUT THIS TO GOOD USE!!”

“wow, look at all those pasta-bilities.”

“NO.”

“but you’re smiling.”

“I AM AND I HATE IT.”

 

From 3jaager:

Asuming that others monsters know about your uhhhm QEUSTS How much trouble was it to get the right papers and stuf for them? (degree, bankaccount, ID or monster ID like thingy enz.)



I’m gonna assume you mean guests…

 

Classic’s eyesockets are black.

“You… you good?”

“WE FORGOT ABOUT THAT…”

“we can just… have ink paint some physical copies and hope for the best…”

Error coded in their info.

“I’m sure you’ll figure it out! I have to go now, so-”

“DO NOT WORRY, KEN! GOODBYE!!”

“it’ll be fine, seeya.”

I wave and walk out of the room, closing the door behind me.

“How the heck did I already write like, 4 pages?? I haven’t even started on the multiverse skellies??”

I might have to split it up…

Hhhhhhhh-

I walk to a door with Underfell written on it, once again knocking before walking in.

“sup.”

“LET’S JUST GET THIS OVER WITH.”

“Oh- uh, al-alright then- it’s just a few people who wanted to give you things-”

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Edge, I love lasagna! You have great taste! So I wanted to give you a challenge! I challenge you to cook with only one hand the next time you make lasagna!

Red, here's a weeks worth of mustard! Enjoy!

 

“oh, wow, uh- thanks?”

“HA! THAT’S EASY! JUST WATCH!”

*Cut to the kitchen burning down *

“I AM… NOT SURE HOW THIS HAPPENED?”

I would tell you, but I think I’d have to bump up the Rating. And I chose to not rate it-

Just know that it was scary.

We’re just gonna move on- I walk to the door with Underswap on it, doing the same thing I’ve done for the past two doors.

This one’s gonna be interesting…

“HELLO THERE!”

“hey.”

“Hi! I assume you already know why you’re here?”

“my bro said it was a ‘q and a’?”

Stretch glances at Blue for confirmation, who nods, eyeing the 4th wall.

“bro, you know the rules…”

“BUT THIS ENTIRE CHAPTER IS BREAKING THE 4TH WALL!”

“Please don’t.”

Blue pouts.

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Blue, do you use your innocent looks to sometimes get others to do what you want? If not you totally should! Most of my friends think I'm innocent too and I get a lot of chocolate Icecream because of it…

 

“he’s literally trying to do it right now.” Stretch deadpans.

“I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!”

Stretch gives his brother A LookTM, causing Blue to visibly deflate.

“YEAH, I DO IT ALL THE TIME… PAPY DOESN’T FALL FOR IT-”

“you raised me, what do you expect?”

Blue keeps talking, “BUT THE OTHERS DO! I’M PRETTY SURE NIGHTMARE JUST DOES IT TO HUMOR ME, THOUGH.”

“he does, he told me. although, you know he’s like that with all of ‘his boys’.”

“AND YOU DIDN’T TELL ME THIS WHY?”

“it’s funny.”

“I GUESS I CAN’T ARGUE WITH THAT…”

 

Also from EclipseStoryWritter:

Stretch, did you know how Blue only acts innocent? If you did what are your thoughts on the matter?

 

“woooooww, really? i didn’t knowww.”

“THERE’S NO NEED TO BE SARCASTIC, PAPY! THEY DON’T KNOW HOW YOU ARE! I’VE TOLD YOU HOW BAD SOME OF THE ALTERNATE YOU’S ARE!”

“i know…”

“YOU’RE FEELING GUILTY ABOUT THEM AGAIN. I TOLD YOU, NONE OF THAT HAPPENED TO US! THEY AREN’T YOU.”

“i... i know. i just don’t like how that could’ve been us…”

“BUT IT ISN’T.”

“yeah…”

Blue gently hugs his little brother.

“YOU KNOW THE TRUTH, AND YOU DON’T SHUN IT- EVEN THOUGH YOU DON’T ACTIVELY HELP-”

“cause you don’t let me-”

“YOU’RE STILL THEIR FRIENDS.”

Stretch sighs, leaning into the smaller skelly, “i know, bro. thanks.”

Let it be known that a Sans is always overprotective of his Papyrus.

 

From xX_Wairwolf44_Xx:

To Blue: don't let anyone ever get you down! They may not know who you really are, but what other people expect from you or believe you to be doesn't Define you. Let the world and your experiences shape you into the person you want to be. Let your soul guide you and have faith in the path you chose! Have hope Blueberry!!!! I beleave in you!!!!

 

“THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!”

“hell yeah, sans is awesome.”

“WATCH YOUR FUCKING LANGUAGE- WAIT-”

“nyeheheh-”

Blue smiles proudly at Stretch’s laugh.

“OH! ALSO! I WIPED THE GOOP OFF OF MINNY’S CLOTHES AND THE COUCH BEFORE DREAM NOTICED! MWEH HEH, HE HAS NO IDEA THAT THEY ARE HERE.”

Stretch calms down from his laughing fit.

“and we plan on keeping it that way.”

“STILL NOT ALLOWED TO HELP.”

“dammit.”

I snort lightly, before I begin to leave.

“See you if I ever decide to do this again!”

“seeya.”

“GOODBYE!”

You like this version of Stretch? I’ve never really seen a version of him like this- at least off of the top of my head- so I thought it’d be interesting!

I take a deep breath in, standing in front of a pure white door, time for the last of the yang…

“Hi there!”

“Hello.”

“Hey,” I walk towards Ink and Dream, “could I ask you a few questions?”

Ink shrugs.

“Sure!”

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Ink, what are your thoughts on Minnie so far?

 

“Huh? Oh! Do you mean Harmony? He’s pretty interesting! I have no idea what to expect, it’s pretty exciting!”

Dream sweatdrops. 

“I think you took too much yellow paint, Ink.”

“I’m fine!”

 

Another from EclipseStoryWritter:

Dream, have you ever heard of Dreamswap? Frankly that version of you terrifies me, but I was wondering what your thoughts were on it?

 

“Dream...swap?”

“Oooo, what’s that!”

At this, I step in.

“Dreamswap is a version of Dreamtale where Dream ends up believing that Nightmare is evil, and eats all of the apples but two. This Dream then creates an organization called Justice Reins, or JR, whose goal is to eradicate all negativity across the multiverse. Due to Nightmare being the guardian of negative emotions, he is the top focus.”

“That… doesn’t sound too bad?”

“Eradicate?”

Dreams voice is shaky.

“Yeah… that’s only the surface of it though… Of course, they could be talking about Swap!Dream where Dream eats all of the apples but one and goes insane from all of the positivity and tries to kill everyone.”

“Oh… wow.”

“...”

Dream is silent. After some time, he speaks again.

“I mean… it doesn’t really surprise me that there are other versions of me… but- wow, those are- those are kinda bad…”

“They’re in their own multiverse… it’s not gonna happen here.”

“Can we move on?”

 

From Sealbunnygum:

Dream, your name is a letter away from 'dread' what're your thoughts on that? See any goop on Minnie's clothes?

 

“I’m… not sure? And why would I see any goop on Harmony’s clothes? I don’t think she’s played with slime or anything, and it’s not like Nightmare’s here.”

The urge to facepalm is large.

 

Also from Sealbunnygum:

Ink, what do you think of Error? Do you create au's or help create them? Do you know Kendoe?

 

Ink’s face falls a bit.

“I… I hate him. I mean, he destroys AUs! I’m pretty sure most people hate him! I just… I’ll admit I was furious. And I- I did some pretty bad things to him. I’ve had a bit of extra time to think since getting stuck here, and I like to think I’ve cooled down a bit... I’m still… I’m still angry at him. I just don’t know-”

A realization seems to come over Ink.

“Why does he do it?! He- he is insane but I know that he doesn’t enjoy it! He kills innocents, but I’ve seen him cry and apologise for it! He’s incredibly dangerous, we never know where he’ll strike next, we still need to capture him or something. It just… it almost feels like… he’s forced? Of course, that’s crazy, but…”

Dream places a hand on Ink’s shoulder.

“We’ll ask him. When we get back.”

 

From xX_Wairwolf44_Xx:

To Dream: honestly Dream *sigh* I'm disappointed in you. For being a guardian of positivity you sure have let a lot of good people down and even now you refuse to see them for who they really are. You are blind. I expected more from you. You disappoint me.

To Ink: I never had any faith in you. What you've done is Unforgivable and if by some miracle the ones you have hurt forgive you, I hope you remember I won't. I will never forgive you. You're probably wondering what I'm even talking about and it's your ignorance that has caused good people great suffering. There were many instances where you were a direct cause of their suffering. I would say I hate you, but it'd be a waste of my energy.

 

Both skeletons remain silent for a bit.

“I’m… We’re sorry for whatever we did…”
    “I would like to- to be better, but I’m not sure what for…”

I quietly walk out of the room and turn to the 4th wall.

“Look, they really are just clueless. Fate is honestly the real villain here, she’s never let Error explain to Ink. Minny’s existence is changing that, but there really was no way to know. And Fate would have forced Error to attack anyone who told Ink, so a middle man wasn’t an option either. Just… remember that they are victims too.”

Of course, not in the same way that any of the ‘bad guys’ are. Speaking of bad guys…

I walk to the second to last door- a pitch black one- lightly knocking on it and slowly walking in.

Where are we? What do you want?

I sigh. Can’t say I wasn’t expecting that.

“You are here. And I just wanted to ask a few questions, then I’ll leave you on your way.”

Nightmare slightly relaxes his sharpened tentacles, glancing back to the others in the room.

Fine. I’ll be their spokesperson, and I will not hesitate to kill you if you threaten me or mine.

“hey wait now-!”

“i can talk for myself-”

“NiGHt-”

“MY BROTHER AND I ARE FINE-”

“come on boss-”

Fine, fine, shut up.

“...CaN yoU LEt Us gO nOW?”

Looking at the others, I could now see that they were all being held in a protective hold by one of Nightmare’s tentacles.

Nope.

The amount of sighs and whines filling the room was kinda funny-

“Can I start now?”

Yeah, sure.

“Go AhEAd.”

“let’s get this over with…”

“ditto.”
    “don’... see why not…”

“sure.”

“OF COURSE!”

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Error, what do you think of Ink? I also dare you to make an Ink doll to give to Ink!

 

“HeH, I doN’t HAtE hIm. He’S a viCTiM oF his SiTuaTION… noT EveRYoNe agrEE’s oN tHis, Of CoUrsE…”

He hurt you!

“I KnoW… AnD, I’vE ALreAdy DoNE thAt. FrOM wHaT I’Ve sEen, He lOVes IT. He DoSEn’t KnOw iT’s FrOM me, oF coURse…”

 

Still from EclipseStoryWritter:

Nightmare, you wonderful goopy boi! I heard you like to read! So here is a book that changes stories depending on what you're in the mood to read! Enjoy!

Killer! Here is a knife sharpening kit!

Cross, I dare you to go hug Dream without saying anything about why!

Horror and Crooks, here, have this entire Thanksgiving feast just for the two of you.

Dust here have a hug first off. Second here is a potion that will allow others to see your Papyrus. Hope you like it…

 

Wow- uh-

“th-thanks-”

“i’m, not-not sure that’s a great idea?”

“...thanks.”

“WOWIE, SANS, LOOK AT ALL OF THIS FOOD! THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

“i- thank you…”

I snicker. 

“I ThINk yOu BrOKe TheM…”

Good. They deserve love.

 

From Sealbunnygum:

Nightmare, what are you like in this au? What are your thoughts on Minnie so far?

 

I’m… not quite sure what you mean… I guess I’m the guardian of negative emotions…?

“first of all, you’re more than that.”

“yeah! you’ve helped all of us…”

“a... great cook…”

“make sure we don’t have nightmares…”

“and so much more!!”

“YoU’Re a PrETty GreAT PerSoN, NiGht.”

Every time I swear- also who’s ‘Minnie’? Is that the skeleton that-

Nightmare cuts himself off.

“that what?”

Nothing.

“Oh mY GoD GUyS hE’s BluSHiNg-”

“ooooooohhhhhhh~”

“WHO IS IT??”

No one.

They drop it for now, but are so going to tease him later.

 

From Owuchan:

Mars and Jupiter here have an entire table full of food

 

“thank... you…”

“THANK YOU!! WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE!”

 

From xX_Wairwolf44_Xx:

To Error: Error, my precious glitchy bean, I love you so much. You are seriously the best boy and you deserve to be happy. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! You are amazing Error, I wouldn't have you any other way.

To NM: Nightmare, my precious goopy bean, I'm so happy you found a family and are happy with the gang. You are not evil no mater what those bich's say. You are just an adorable noot noot in need of love. Also I hope you enjoyed your cuddles!

    To the rest of the gang: I'm really happy you all are safe and sound after all the bullshit you all went through. Everyone of you are amazing and lovable sweethearts and deserve each other. Never stop loving and protecting one another, after all family weather-related are not is something precious.

 

*Error.exe has crashed*

Everyone else is trying to sputter up a response as they blush heavily.

I quickly slip out of the room, quietly chuckling to myself, and head to the last door.

I regret writing all of this in one sitting.

I don’t bother knocking on the grey door, and just walk in.

“This is a fanfiction for you guys, isn’t it.”

I sheepishly nod, glancing to the side.

“Are you the author?”

“Yes…”

Minny sighs, lightly running her hand over Winky.

“This is a Q&A chapter, isn’t it.”

At my nod, Minny sighs again.

“Alright. But don’t forget that this is real to us, okay?”

I nod a third time, “Do you want to get started? There’s only two.”

“Sure…”

 

From Sealbunnygem:

Minnie, what attacks would you normally use? What colour attacks can you perform? Do you know Kendoe?

Winkie, meow.

 

“I’m assuming that this,” she gestures to me, “is Kendoe.”

We both pause, looking at Winky, who just slow blinks at us.

“Also, I haven’t really gotten a chance to use any attacks…” Minny glances at me, assuming I’m going to answer.

I am.

“Well, you’ve got the normal bone attacks and blasters, then you have an attack that’s specific to you. Like Ink with his paintbrush, Error with his strings, Nightmare with his tentacles, and Dream with his bow/staff. I’m not gonna say what it is yet, though.”

“You don’t know what it is yet, do you?”

“Nope!”

 

From EclipseStoryWritter:

Minny, who is your favorite Skeleton? And here's a bag of holding for you!

 

“Oh! Th-thanks! This’ll come in handy! And… I don’t really have a favorite skelly, per se. I kinda like them all, to be honest!”

Minny turns back to me.

“Is that all?”

“Yeah, thank you.”

“...Am I gonna remember this?”

“...No- not really.”

Minny nods, then shoo’s me out the door.

“I was probably the last one, so finish this chapter up and crap.”

“Heh, alright. Good luck.”

“Thanks. Bye.”

Minny shoots me a small smile as I walk out the door. I head back to the 4th wall.

“There you go! All of your questions have been answered! I hope you liked it. And again, thank you for all of the support.”

I wave at the wall, then disappear.
