i have a lot of feelings about robots today

taki-random  asked:

sorry i say this through ask??? but idk??? what i'm doing. i low-key think logan and anx get along well because their favourite phrase is "what if". like i imagine them in the kitchen late at night with anx sitting on some whatever flat surface and lo just standing by the window discussing shit like cannibalism in wall-e or whatever. i just want them to have bonding moments over theories. and this was another thing i have lots of feelings about today. sorry.

trying out the hc format also yes i know how old this is

- it began as a “oh hey i couldnt sleep and you were up working far too late and now we both wanted a glass of water” deal every once in a while, but now it’s a thing at least once a week

- patton and roman don’t know at first. the only evidence is the used cups, sometimes mugs when one or the other (or both) decide they want hot chocolate. 

- they talk about all kinds of stuff. space, robots, the future, brain transplants (Virgil was surprisingly well read). they both look forward to the time when they get caught up in bouncing off each other’s “what ifs” and debating which is more plausible

- once they forgot that they needed to sleep, because they had gotten onto the topic of the sea and lets just say they both have information and theories of their own

- that was also the day Patton found out - lets just say he wasn’t impressed to hear that his kiddos were staying up instead of sleeping (never mind the fact that he did the same fairly often)

I have done a whole pile of Social Activities today and like, they have not gone terribly badly (so far! a lot of them were emails and things so there’s still time!) (also: that I know about! but anyway). But I keep on having this Very Strong Awareness that they have not gone badly Only because at various points I very closely and intensely watched people who were able to do these things well and then when I had enough data I was like whirr whirr pattern synthesising and then I produced a Reasonable Pastiche. 

But actually, in fact, I’m pretty sure this is just how humans work? Right? Brains are just devices Specifically For This, social knowledge is just taking in a load of data and extracting a formula with which to generate new things which also fit the same template but with enough variation to make it seem like it’s not an exact copy. This is just an unremarkable Human Process, no?

then again do real humans write weird blog posts about how humans process information so as to generate social actions, probably not.

Yesterday’s Wounds (part 6)

Title: Yesterday’s Wounds (part 6)
Characters: Papyrus, Undyne, Alphys, Sans, MTT, Gaster, Asgore
Wordcount: 2341
Warnings: Medical Experimentation, Child Abandonment, Restraint
Summary: Many years ago, Papyrus was found in a dump. Now he is an adult who is about to find out a little more about his past when they find out the source of the barcode on his arm.
Notes: Baby Blaster AU + Rescue Dog!Papyrus, and of course Baby Blaster AU belongs to @spacegate. This chapter was very wobbly for me to write, I figure it and the next one might feel that way so I apologize in advance.  

Alphys finished feeding the rats in Papyrus’ absence and headed back to the main file room next to the observation room. She hoped maybe Undyne pulled some information from the other skeleton. She noticed the bite mask that had been cut off and tossed near the file room as she stepped closer to the observation room.  She stared at it, and carefully kicked it to the file room, she didn’t want to be around it and she would have Undyne deal with it better later.
