in more “i wasn’t really aware valentine’s day was coming up until the day before and i wasn’t prepared” news here is an alphys/undyne valentines day headcanon post
since they watch anime, they are both 100% aware that valentine’s day (and white day) are a thing on the surface. i wonder if alphys makes like a machine (like her grass ice cream maker?) to put together her gift for undyne? or maybe she makes a fancy sword? maybe they think of valentine’s day as an anime holiday, so they both wear cosplay.
it’d be kind of cool if undyne like dipped ramen (or something else alphys likes) in chocolate for her gift but the thing about melting chocolate is that you have to…really carefully control the heat? like, put a pot over boiling water so you don’t scorch the chocolate. undyne is morally opposed to controlled heat.
“I was going to make something, but I just went to the store and bought stuff CAUSE IT’S EASIER! ” *she shoves a heart shaped box at her gf* “FUHUHU!”
