Dumb Underswap AU idea(s):
so like, I totally respect (and subscribe hardcore to) the fact that a lot of things that Sans does in vanilla will like basically translate to Papyrus in Underswap, but like get this for a second: when it comes to Sans’s “shortcutting” like why not let that stay a respective trait to the Sans Underswap counterpart while Underswap Papyrus keeps main game Papyrus’s gravity defying physics stuff?
Imagine having Sans just taking a short cut behind a tree or something after a “trap” has been foiled by the human, or like just popping up from behind the human and is is like “Wait, wrong side!” exits screen left, enters screen right, “HUMAN, PREPARE FOR….”
Or, an even funnier turn of events: having Papyrus take the human into Muffet’s Bakery and Cafe (as opposed to Grillby’s Bar and Grill) to where they go to sit at the counter, “Oh, whoops, looks like there’s only one stool left, eh, you take it kid, I’ll be fine.” and as the human sits on the bar stool, Papyrus just sits on….. Nothing…. Just air…. No one makes any mention of it or seems at all phased, he’s just sitting and chilling there like he always does.
