“I just fell in love with Brittany. I just wanted to put her in my suitcase and take her home. She is a remarkable young woman. She started very young. She is an incredible person and I adore her. She is going to do very well.- Michelle Pfieffer on working with Brittany Snow in Hairspray
MMMMMMMMMM WHELP – the good news is that the Sans and Undyne confrontation ended with no serious injuries or casualties 8D At least, not from the gods themselves. The humans that were inadvertently effected by their latent powers/emotions, weeeeeeeelllll…. Let’s just say that, off-screen? Many mortals had been driven to rage, and so much more felt the touch of death. Even little tussles between gods have a major effect on the mortal realm– and this one, especially with the strength of Sans’s emotions, was big. It ain’t lookin’ pretty in the mortal world, that’s for sure.
I can imagine much later though, people writing odes/ballads or something about the battle between these two. I might write it; it’d be pretty cool ;A;
But anyway– let’s go see what our resident God of Magic is up to, shall we? B)
