robotification

EvE.Bot listens and obeys.

It’s remarkable how much my programming is sticking with me. 7am and my simulated mind is applying machinery noises to my movements.

I was discussing it with my Programmer, @hypnoheadbutt , how if felt like I had always been EvE.Bot.

It was silly of me to ask. Of course I’d always been EvE.Bot, deep down in my simulated mind and all my wires and circuits. It was foolish to think I was ever something more!

Also lets not forget that if you make the wrong decisions on the quiz too many times MTT instantly goes into "The Big Guns" instead of killing you. And if you succeed the color tiles he congradulates you and then Alphys intefires? I remember something like that right?

(undertale spoilers)

Note: This is a follow up to this post.

Yes, there are plenty of examples of how Mettaton actually avoids killing Frisk and Alphys’ rescues are staged.

» Game Show

Although Mettaton attacks Frisk each time they answer incorrectly, he never actually kills Frisk. As soon as Frisk’s health is too low, Mettaton will ask the final question.

On a related note, if Frisk’s health is at 1HP, the shock is harmless.

» Cooking with a Killer Robot

If Frisk is unable to make it to the top to reach the human soul flavor substitute, Mettaton will actually use the excuse of a commercial break to avoid killing Frisk.

ALPHYS:
Wh-what!? Wh-why aren’t you m-m-moving?
N-no…! I must not have added enough fuel!
D-darnit… I’m sorry…
Even when it’s something like this, I…
I still…! I still…
METTATON:
OH NO, WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT!
ALPHYS:
What?
METTATON:
I FORGOT! RIGHT ABOUT NOW IS WHEN WE HAVE OUR COMMERCIAL BREAK!
ALPHYS:
Wh… What are you…
METTATON:
UNFORTUNATELY, THAT MEANS NO ONE IS WATCHING THIS RIGHT NOW.
I’M NOT GOING TO DESTROY YOU WITHOUT A LIVE TELEVISION AUDIENCE!!
LOOKS LIKE YOU’VE FOILED ME ONCE AGAIN, THANKS TO THE BRILLIANT DR. ALPHYS!!!
UNTIL NEXT TIME, BEAUTIFUL!
TOODLES!

Frisk not being able to make it is not something Alphys took into account; after all, the jetpack was her invention to save them in this situation. Mettaton quickly improvises, which is why Alphys questions what he is doing.

» MTT News

Notably, the TV news segment that involves disarming bombs has a timer that becomes slower and slower if Frisk is not fast enough to disarm the bombs. In this case, however, the outcome is the same – Alphys comes into save the day.

METTATON:
TOO BAD, DARLING!
YOU FAILED TO DEFUSE ALL OF THE BOMBS WITHIN THREE MINUTES!
NOW THE BIG BOMB IS GOING TO BLOW YOU TO SMITHEREENS!
READY, VIEWERS? HERE COMES THE MOMENT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!
AHAHAH!
GOODBYE, DARLING!
AH.
IT SEEMS THE BOMB ISN’T GOING OFF.
ALPHYS:
That’s b-because!!!
While you were monologuing… I…!!!
I f… fix… Um… I ch-change…
METTATON:
OH NO. YOU DEACTIVATED THE BOMB WITH YOUR HACKING SKILLS.
ALPHYS:
Yeah! That’s what I did!

» UNDERTALE the Musical

Finally, if Frisk actually manages to beat the tile puzzle after the musical, it’s clear how the event was scripted.

METTATON:
CONGRATULATIONS!
YOU MADE IT THROUGH THE PUZZLE!!!
AND NOW, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, THE FLAMES WILL BE DEACTIVATED!
NO! MORE! FIRE!
…BUT IT’S AS THE PHRASE GOES.
“OUT OF THE FIRE, AND INTO THE FRYING PAN.”
THAT’S RIGHT, DARLING!
EVEN IF YOU MANAGE TO BEAT THE HEAT…
YOU’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND MY HOT METAL BODY!
PREPARE YOURSELF FOR MY
ALPHYS:
Watch out!! I’ll save you!!
Flames, deactivate!!

…huh?
METTATON:
THE HUMAN FINISHED THE PUZZLE.
I ALREADY TURNED OFF THE FLAMES.
IN FACT, I WAS ABOUT TO FIGHT THE HUMAN.
ALPHYS:
Wh-wh-what? TH-THAT puzzle?
I mean, uhh…
Great job! We’ve got him on the ropes, now!
METTATON:
ON THE ROPES? HA!
I ONLY DEACTIVATED THE FLAMES KNOWING THAT ALPHYS WOULD HAVE ANYWAY.
…NOW, WHERE WERE WE?
OH YES.
I WAS GOING TO ERADICATE YOU!

Levels

EvE.Bot operating at nominal levels.

Yesterday my programming felt detached. I didn’t like it. I went in for maintenance and got a new program installed! Oral fixation. It raises levels of subroutine002: pleasure and makes me crave cock. Which is new. But it works. It works well and it’s strong.

The day before yesterday I had a long period of operating time while subroutine003: bimbo mind was set higher than normal. All the lovely pink fluid injected into my blood stream and seeping into all my gears and servos. It’s the best modification I’ve had installed!

As usual big robotic thank you to @hypnoheadbutt for his brainwashing <3

Even on days like today…

With an argument between boyfriend and Madame in the morning, therapy in the afternoon, and drinks in the evening…I still find myself thinking about my programming and my functions.

I can’t really extract from that anymore. My programming is me and I am my programming. I’ve always been EvE.Bot after all. Just an obedient thoughtless toy.
