Welp. No fluff this time. (Ut Sans and Grillby, Uf Skelebros. If it's too much character just take the ones that you feel more inspired for !) For whatever reason, they cheated on their s/o. They still love them. So when their s/o know the truth, s/o just sit on the couch with them and ask : «If you didn't love me anymore, you could have just break with me you know.» (Part 1)
(((CONTINUED PARTS TO ASK))) They don’t scream, cry, beg them or anything. Their shoulders drooping, their eyes dull and tired to sparkle when they aren’t fine, their lips curled in a sad smile, small but there. Their hands don’t shake and their breath is calm. They are just tired and sad, but hey this is life so whatever happen it has to happen. They love their boyfriend, but if they cheated that means they don’t love them anymore, right ? Maybe they wasn’t supposed to be together in the first place anyway. (Part 2)
Well it’s okay, they think, maybe they’ll be more happy without me. But what they don’t know is that their boyfriend discovered after cheating on them that they are soulmates. Are they going to cry together in despair ? Are they going to argue ? Or is it going to stay calm ? The choice is yours ~ (I love this scenario more than I should. God, that was fun to write :v and super long. Blep)
I AM SO SORRY I DIDN’T GET TO THIS SOONER OH NO ;n;
Thank you so much for being patient with me >~< this ask has always excited me but I wanted to make it detailed and perfectly angsty so I waited until I had a clean mind and a calm day to do it, this is unfortunately the first one I’ve had in a while, but I STILL GOT TO IT… EVENTUALLY. The only character I had trouble with was Grillby because he would NOT cheat because he’s so level headed and calm about things.. so I made his a bit more fluffy. It’s actually pretty cute XD I think his is the stress reliever before Underfell, because UF is a mess, if you think Classic’s is bad, oh no
Also the responses are REALLY long for a regular headcanon but that’s because I love angst and got carried away (cheating is a nightmare though, ugh I hate it so much, it is NOT okay under ANY circumstances).

Classic doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to cheat on someone, and usually he wouldn’t. He usually likes to stay loyal and work out the issues even if they’re hard, he wants to have your trust and he wants to love you… but this situation was just so different. It was wild. A good childhood friend of yours came into town some days ago and stayed for a night at your place and in a nearby hotel for another 2 nights before you saw him go on his way to wherever the planet took him next. The way you talked about him, the way you treated him, the way you looked at him… everything just drove Classic’s jealousy too far up the tree. He didn’t know why that guy made him so infuriated, but sure enough Classic was angry, and he was a bit angry at you as well. You had introduced Classic as your boyfriend yet you seemed to keep some of the same intimate habits with your friend. His jealousy caused him to be blind toward the difference in the sort of intimacy taking place as best friends or family rather than romantically, so he decided he would just “get you back” rather than taking a step back. His annoyance for your friend and your small whines about not seeing him enough and that you really miss him even right after he leaves… it causes the impossible. Later that night, when he thought you were asleep, he went out and slept with someone else. It was mostly just a sexual thing, not a romantic one, and he didn’t even mean to make it sexual. He just wanted to be with SOMEONE and figured that you weren’t working, his fuzzy mind and strong emotions leading him to someone else.
As he woke up in someone else’s bed, he felt awful. He couldn’t really remember the night before and his head hurt a LOT, meaning he most definitely got drunk. Despite the massive headache and other aching bones in his body, looking up at a different ceiling set off many red flags in his head, and he knew that he messed up. He knew he did something wrong, he knew he never should have left in the middle of the night, he knew that he just cheated on you and he had to tell you. His soul aches for your affection and now he’s afraid he lost it completely. It’s late in the morning, so you’re already awake, and he knows you’re going to be able to tell he’s hungover. You’ll know, you just will. When he gets home, his soul already pounding behind the left side of his sternum, you look at him as he shuffles across the house yet stops at your gaze as he’s passing. Your eyes are a bit red and the skin underneath is still a bit puffy. You look exhausted and defeated, drinking a cup of coffee, you’ve obviously been crying somewhat recently, but your face and expression are otherwise clean. You’re so unbelievably calm that it could practically kill someone, and it sent Classic’s anxiety on the rapid rise. You set your mug down and, with a very soft and sad smile, you gently moved the chair next to you, motioning for him to sit down. Tearing up a little, Classic does so. He can barely look at you as you tell him that your cousin saw him enter a place seemingly lewd for his standards, and that she never saw him leave (she works across the street or something). Classic covers his face in his hands as you gently mention that can only mean one thing, and your next sentence breaks him. “I’m not mad at you, Sans… but I trusted you, and I wish you had trusted me the same way.”
This causes Classic to have a couple tears roll down his cheekbones because he can’t hold it in, and he starts apologizing over and over. He didn’t mean it, he loves you, he does, please dear god just believe him! But you gently shake your head and think to yourself that he’s probably just saying that, if he really loved you he wouldn’t have cheated on you. Souls tend to show their rawest form when very strong emotions come into play, so as Classic glances at you, he starts to notice that you have the same sort of patterns in your raw soul that he has… that being said, it clicks in his head that he probably just lost his soulmate if he can’t make it up to you. He stops crying, he toughens up, and he looks you dead in the eyes, refusing to look away. You begin to fidget underneath his gaze and he tells you in a serious tone that he wants another chance. He wants to make it up to you. Even if you don’t trust him anymore, even if you love him less because of what he did, even if you’ll be different towards him for a while, he WANTS to prove it to you that he cares about you. Classic had cheated on you, but you can’t help but still love him, and seeing such determination in his expression… it gives you a bit of hope. You let him make it up to you, and it’s not until things get back to the way they were when he finally tells you that he thinks you guys are soulmates. Classic is still regretful and every now and then you have to remind him that it’s in the past and all that matters is that you guys got over the situation and that it won’t happen again. It’ll never happen again.

Grillbs is very composed and, frankly, nothing would really cause him to cheat on you. He’s good at unwinding situations and his general calmness and coolness makes it all even easier. Even if he was pushed over some limits, he still wouldn’t actually cheat on you because he’s a man of his word and he knows that he should stay loyal. He can control his anger enough to the point where even if he was FUMING, he wouldn’t harm you and wouldn’t leave you for anyone else. Grillbs already knows you guys are soulmates and sometimes things will go awry. But when he saw you choose Papyrus’ food over his!!!! HOW DARE YOU!!!!!
Honestly, he didn’t care in the slightest. Grillbs makes fast food, yes, but for home he’s actually a VERY good cook, and he knows you love his meals. He just found it silly how you said you weren’t hungry and now you’re eating spaghetti, but he isn’t angry that you told him you weren’t hungry, he figured you were just anxious. His meals can be a bit much sometimes because they’re usually SO good that sometimes you just need something simple or a little junkier every once in a while to clean your pallet. So, the next day, Grillbs comes home and smells you cooking something, but he stands in the kitchen with a serious (and slightly blank) expression and stares at you. You glance at him and welcome him home, but his expression sets you a bit off. You ask him what’s wrong and he tells you in a level voice, “I cheated on you.” Your eyes widen and you have NO clue what to say, you can feel your eyes beginning to sting and your voice getting caught in your throat with your stomach turning… but then he mentions, “and myself..” and he holds up one of Muffet’s pastry bags. You take a VERY heavy breath and can’t help but start chuckling as you fall to your knees with your hands on your chest, saying you were SO scared and nervous at first. Why would he say it like that?! C’mon, Grillby!! He sets the bag down on the table and kneels in front of you, his hands on your arms. Grillbs tells you that you don’t have to lie and say you aren’t hungry if you don’t want to eat what he makes, just tell him that you don’t want it and you guys can go for something else! Before you can say anything he makes a slight pouty face and crosses his arms, looking away in a fake-sad way, “And you cheated on my food with Papyrus’.” A small smile comes to his face as you start laughing a little and you apologize, you were just nervous to say anything, and he understands and he kisses the top of your head. He apologizes for giving you the shortest anxiety attack of all time and you decide to finish making tonight’s dinner tomorrow. You guys will settle for something sweet, like the donuts he brought home. Don’t forget to pick some of the spiders off.

Red gets self conscious easily, and you know that. He needs to be reassured more often than not that you love him and ONLY him no matter who else comes in your life, and you have to remind him that even if he thinks you don’t, you really do. Well, one night, it seemed as if you were becoming intimate with his brother - it SEEMED like it. You and Papyrus actually get along quite well, and even though it’s a good thing, Red is still a bit alarmed and upset that you guys get along that easily. Papyrus has very high standards, and the fact you fulfill his standards so quickly yet you’re dating Red… it makes Red confused, which makes him angry because he doesn’t like being confused. You’re glad you have a good relationship with both of the skelebros, and that night you were beginning to open up to Papyrus a little bit. You guys had been bonding pretty well and Pap is starting to feel like family to you, so you were able to bring out a side in him that not many people see… his sweet side. Usually only an S/O can drag it out of him at some point, but the way that you had acted and the way you were able to neutralize situations without getting worked up.. it impressed him. Pap respects that you can get along with Red just as much as him, and that you can easily accept criticism and handle tough opinions, and how you can stay calm even in some stressful times. He became more attentive and more supportive toward you and actually started to make some physical gestures with you, like high fives, hugs, and even little things like putting a hand on your shoulder or teasing you by resting his arm on your shoulder since you’re most likely shorter than him, even if it’s just by a little bit, but then you’re pretty damn tall if it’s only a little. Since Red has always known his older brother to be better than him, he figured you were cheating on him with Papyrus because of your guys’ new intimacy, which is really just in a friendly/family sense. With that in mind, his self consciousness and low self esteem led him to thinking it’s a good idea to cheat on you too. He left the house a little before you guys were going to bed and ignored all of your calls and texts, and he got drunk. He got into a sexual relationship with someone else.
The next morning, he came home and apologized for leaving like that. He was just stressed out and needed a breather, and mentioned it was because of a co worker and he didn’t want to accidentally yell at you. At this point, you still don’t know he’s seeing someone else, and Red just tells you that work is getting kinda crazy so his hours are going to be a bit wild for a while. You shrug and tell him it’s okay, it’s not like you can yell at him for having some tough working hours. Right now, Red almost feels proud of himself for being able to keep a second relationship a secret, at least while he’s still thinking that you and Pap are in a relationship. For the next few days, he’s away more than he is home, and he always seems grumpier when he first comes home rather than when he’s leaving. This confuses you, and you actually begin to worry you’re the one doing something wrong. Since you know that you and Pap are close now, and since Pap is the one who would know Red the most besides you, you go to him for help when Red is gone. You know he won’t be home for some good hours, so you take the opportunity to leave the house without Red knowing so you can talk to Papyrus about it. You actually get a bit shaky and you tear up explaining to Papyrus that you don’t know what’s going on and that you love him and you want things to be okay between the two of you, and he comforts you. He pulls you into a hug to get you to calm down and he promises you that he’ll help you out. He loves you and, even if he won’t always show or admit it, Papyrus loves his brother in a certain way, and he actually wants the two of you to work out as well. Because of your strong emotions he can see your soul pattern, and he actually does mention that he thinks you and Red are soulmates since his patterns are pretty similar too. This fills you with hope that things will work out.
Well, Papyrus finds out that Red is cheating on you. And he does NOT hesitate to tell you.
As Red comes home from one of his now regular long days, he’s met with you and Papyrus standing near the front door to greet him. Pap look furious with his arms crossed offensively, and you look worn down, your arms crossed defensively. Red squints a little and asks what’s going on, and in a sad tone, your voice cracking at the end, you tell him that you know he’s cheating on you. Red’s expression goes blank as Papyrus starts going off on him with no mercy, shouting that Red’s a fucking idiot. He cheated on YOU, THE MOST LOYAL PERSON HE KNOWS, and Red lied to you! Pap shouts at him that he doesn’t deserve someone like you, you went to him for help and you started crying and breaking down because of how upset he was making you! He even mentions the word ‘soulmates’ and when you notice Red slightly cowering against the door, you put a hand on Papyrus’ arm, telling him to stop in a gentle, broken voice. Pap finishes his ugly thoughts and he looks at you sympathetically, telling you to call him or even go visit him if things get bad or if you need somewhere to go, and he roughly moves Red out of the way so he can leave, glaring at his older brother while exiting. When he leaves, you sigh and look at Red again, clearly upset, but still calm. The expression on your face breaks him the most, the tiredness and the dullness in your eyes. You sadly smile and tell Red that if he isn’t happy with you that he doesn’t have to be with you, and that if he’d really rather be with someone else so badly to the point where he can lie about work just to see them more than you, then he should leave you and go to date them. Red stutters to try and say something, his thoughts flying everywhere, but you interrupt him and tell him you love him. You love him even though he hurt you and betrayed you, you just can’t seem to find anger in yourself towards him. You tell him that if this is what life decided should happen then there’s obviously a reason for it. Speechless, Red stares at you with tears in his sockets as you say you think things should break off for a while. You talked about it with Papyrus and you both decided that you could move in with him for a little while until you find the money to buy a new place or until things work out between the two of you. The whole time that you gather a few more of your things, since you were prepared for this and most of your stuff was already packed, Red pleads for you to stay. He tries to tell you that he loves you and he didn’t mean to cheat on you, but standing in the doorway with all of your things, you turn to look at him with an exhausted tone in your voice as you speak, “Of course you meant to. Of course you did, Sans. If you didn’t mean to, you wouldn’t have done it, or it would have been one night and then you would have told me afterwards. But you liked keeping it a secret from me, you wanted to keep it a secret and you wanted to be with someone else because it trailed on longer than a single night, it trailed on and on and you continuously lied to me every time you went to go see whoever you’ve been seeing. That’s what a form of dedication is, Sans, and it’s clearly something you don’t have for me. Maybe we’ll find our way back - we very well could be soulmates, according to your brother, but I can’t… I can’t feel loved around you right now. I love you, but I can’t look at you. I can’t feel around you. We’ll keep in touch or something..” and you left with that.
If you can find it in yourself to forgive Red and give him another chance, the two of you start dating again. It’s awkward, but it works out and he doesn’t cheat on you anymore. If you can’t seem to trust him the same or feel the same around him anymore, then you guys either get together but break up again or you don’t get together at all, and it stays that way.

Fell would only cheat on you because you aren’t satisfying him. That sounds a lot more analytical than it should, but it’s actually very emotional for him. Maybe it’s just one little thing, a single trait that he needs in someone, and you don’t have it. Maybe it’s something he’s still trying to get used to but doesn’t think he’s strong enough to deal with it, and it’s not like he would full out cheat on you unless he truly thought you were a horrible person and that you deserved the pain. But this? This is something simple for him. He just doesn’t have the strength. It’s not like Fell goes out and has sex or starts a new intimate relationship with anyone, but he goes around and flirts with others a little to see if he can find that trait in someone else, and if he finds a person or even multiple people, he’d get their number and leave it at that until things got awful.
Nevertheless, no matter how small or simple it is, cheating is cheating, and you know for a fact that it is NEVER okay no matter what caused or what comes from it. You found some phone numbers scrabbled on a couple pieces of paper laying in the top of a bottom drawer in the desk while you were trying to search for some old folder that had whatever you needed to find in it. You clearly recognized Fell’s hand writing and you know that these hadn’t been there the last time you’ve looked in here, so you assumed they were new. You texted one of the numbers and you were greeted with a, “heeyy is this Pappyy? ab time you texted me hun.” This really set you off and made you uneasy, and honestly, it made you angry, and you have a right to be angry. You approached Fell who was sitting at the table reading up on something and you put the numbers in front of him, asking him what they were and why you got this response when you texted one of them, showing him your phone. This made HIM angry and he stood up, giving him a height advantage, taking off his reading glasses and asking you why you were going through those things. Those are his personal things. You squint a little, finding it sarcastically hilarious that HE would be mad at you for going though something ‘personal’ when the two of you share everything with each other to begin with, yet THIS was a secret? Fell feels a tinge of anxiety as he takes a breath and starts trying to tiptoe around what happened, but this makes you even angrier as you catch on what he’s trying to explain. “You cheated on me!!” You exclaim, “How could you?!” You’d usually be calm, but Fell’s initial response really put you across the edge.
Fell already had a feeling that you two were soulmates, but seeing those raw patterns sprawled across your soul… it proves him right. Knowing he’s right gives him a small ego boost and he tells you that you’ll work it out, you’re soulmates, things happen and it’ll blow past. This REALLY frustrates you because you think he isn’t taking it seriously, and you tell him that he can do what he wants because you’re leaving. Hearing that, Fell starts to lose his composure and starts asking you what’s truly wrong, hey hey it’ll be okay just let him explain, but you yell at him and say he already tried to explain and you already understand what the hell happened, and that he has the NERVE to say those things to you in response! The two of you break out into a big argument and you leave the house feeling awful with tears rolling down your cheeks as you go to your friend’s house, who you’ve already texted that you need to go over as you’re already on your way. Fell doesn’t break down until AFTER you leave, since he doesn’t want to break up with you. He really does love you, he loves you for you, and he thought he wasn’t strong enough to be without what he REALLY likes in people… but he’s realizing that you don’t have to be that way. You have different, unique, interesting traits that no one else he knows has, and that makes you so special and so much better than anyone else. He blocks all the numbers ahead of time and burns the pieces of paper, and he sort of just mopes around until you finally text him. His soul races as you say you’re coming over for “round two,” you worded it, as in, you want to try and talk it out civilly but you will not be afraid of standing up for yourself and arguing if that’s what it comes to again. He cleans himself up a little and you show up and you let yourself in, it technically is your own house, and you guys actually do manage to have a civil discussion. Now is when you’re just tired, your eyes are dull and your soft smile is sad. Fell is relieved to listen to you say that you still love him, but deeply saddened to hear that you don’t know how to trust him, and that you feel almost as if you’re never enough for him. He explains that he loves you too and he admits that what he did was terrible and that you ARE enough for him, but he failed to realize it sooner than later. He explains everything he loves about you and he explains why he did what he did and that he truly doesn’t deserve you, and it upsets you but fills you with a bit of happiness at the same time. You can’t help but cling to whatever might be left for the two of you and you tell Fell that even if you’re still a bit doubtful and that you’ll need to rebuild what you had, you really do want to try it again, and he’s definitely with you. This time around, you make it very clear about what you won’t tolerate from him, and he respects your desires. Your relationship works out and if Fell were to ever wrong you, this time, you would know exactly how to take the wheel and spin it, and you will not let yourself fall apart again.
