The Moon in the Dark

Long ago, the Monsters and Humans fought a great war. The Monsters lost, and were sealed in the Underground. It would take the power of seven human souls to break the barrier that kept them imprisoned. They only had six. And so the Monsters waited and hoped, praying that another human would find their way to the Underground. Some thought the seventh soul would give their King the strength to break the barrier. Some dreamed of a human who would be their friend, and save them all...or had nightmares of one who would bring back the war.
...but nobody came.
...but somepony did.
Eons after the war, with no way to tell how much time had passed above, a tiny blue filly with wings and horn fell into the underground, calling for her Mama. None knew the poor creature's nature or origins...but her soul was powerful with magic, even more so than a human soul.
None can know what will come...of this little 'Woona'.


31. Friending Problems

Eventually, Woona and Alphys crawled out of the trash can, deciding to face their embarrassment together.  As soon as they were out, Woona's phone began to ring.  She quickly picked it up.  "Hello?"

"hey, woona."

"Uncle Sans!" Woona cried happily.  "How are you doing?"

"well, I was laughing my tail bone off at how you were on Mettaton's show..."

Woona blushed brightly.  " saw that?" she whimpered.

"yup," Sans replied.  "i really liked how you put mettaton in his place...and pap's face when you referred to asgore as 'mr. dad guy'."

"...I'm going to hide in the trash can again..." Woona whined, her cheeks bright red.

"don't be like that, woona.  it was adorable!  but..."  Sans paused for a time.  "do ya think ya can swing by snowdin?  when you spilled the beans about undyne and alphys, undyne...well..."

"W...what did Undyne do when she saw?" Woona asked worriedly.

"U...Undyne saw the show?" Alphys choked.  " life is over..."

"she suplexed our house in embarrassment," Sans explained.  "think you can swing by and help us put it right-side up again?  pap's is throwing a fit over the kitchen being unusable for spaghetti-"

"Spaghetti?  Oh no!" Woona cried out.  "I'll be right there!"  She hung up her phone.

"B-before you go..." Alphys began.  "Your phone, it''s really old.  M-maybe I can give you a new one-"

"But Mama gave me this phone!" Woona whimpered.

Alphys stroked her chin.  "T-then...I could upgrade it?  Give it new features, and a stronger signal?"

Woona thought about that for a time.  "Well...okay..."  She gave her phone to Alphys.

Alphys dashed off with the phone, and Woona heard the sound of tinkering.  After a time, Alphys returned, handing over a phone that was barely recognizable.  "T-there you go," Alphys explained.  "I-I've added texting, boosted the signal, upgraded the display, added a link to the dimensional boxes, and signed you up for the Underground's No. 1 social network!  I already friended you there, and put my number in your registry."

"Could you friend Papy, Sans, and Undyne for me as well?" Woona asked.  "They're my friends, too...oh, and Napstablook, and the Temmies, and-"

"I also added a progress tracker," Alphys added.  "It automatically checks the site for any monster you've already befriended, and adds them to your Friend roster."

" cool..." Woona murmured as she opened her phone.

...actually pretty impressive, Chara admitted.  And your username is...Super Moon?

"Da dada-DAH!" Woona proclaimed happily.  She then giggled along with Alphys.  "I'll be back, Alphys!  I need to go help Uncle Sans!"  With that, she took a shortcut.

Alphys stared at the hole in the fabric of reality that slowly closed behind the little pony and shivered.  "So that's why Sans always makes sure no one can see him before he does that..."



Woona decided that, despite how much she enjoyed spending time with Sans and Papyrus, she was going to hurry back to Hotland after righting the house.  Not only did she need to find the spiders' home, Sans and Papyrus were still making a fuss over her appearance on the show.  As such, she quickly took the shortcut back to the lab.

On her arrival, she discovered a few things of interest.  First, Alphys was nowhere in sight.  Second, there seemed to be no real damage to the foundation from Mettaton bursting through the walls.  The thing that really caught her attention, however, was that the space behind the wall that Mettaton had burst out of was only a few feet wide.  It wasn't a tunnel, and it wasn't an outside wall.

Hmm... Woona thought to herself.  Either Mettaton has access to Sans' shortcuts-

He doesn't, Chara replied quickly.

...or I was on the right track with acting extra dramatic when Mettaton arrived, Woona concluded.

...oh, Chara admitted after a while.  So the...10.78% thing wasn't a...real percentage?

Woona shrugged.  I dunno.  For now, let's get moving.

Once Woona was back out in Hotland, she started to make her way forward, only to pause as her phone made a loud beep.  "WAH!" she screamed, tossing it into the air and catching it as it came down.  Looking at the screen, she saw it was an update from Alphys, who had realized she'd missed Woona's fight with Undyne.  She decided to type a reply...only for her hooves to have difficulty with the buttons.  "Grrr..." she grumbled.

Let me, Chara offered.  She saw his ghostly hands take shape in her magic, gripping the phone.  What should I type as a reply to that update?

Woona smiled.  Type, "Don't worry, we'll do it again so you can see."  And...what's that weird text face thing?

It's an emote.  Did you want to leave one, too?

Woona thought for a time.  ...can you wink?

Chara typed the message.


Don't worry!  You can watch the rematch! ;)


Wow... Woona marveled as Chara posted the message.'d you do that?

I can interact with your active magic, Chara explained.  Since you gripped the phone in your magic, I could shape the grip into my hands, since it was what you wanted to do anyway.

Cool! Woona marveled in her mind.

The phone beeped again.


Alphys updated status.


Oh my Toby!  She responded right away!  I don't know what to do! OwO


And again.


Alphys updated status.


And I just realized that means she's reading my status updates, and I'm making a fool of myself! VnV


Woona decided to send a reply, with Chara's help.


Silly dragon. *pets comfortingly*


Woona's phone beeped again, this time with a reply.




Guess you got her feeling better, Chara murmured.  Think that means we can start walking now?

Giggling, Woona pressed on, filled with DETERMINATION from helping comfort her fri-


Alphys updated status.


Oh my Toby, I get to watch Undyne and the pony fight again later, and I still have the original fight recorded! 9_^w^_P


...Woona was filled with DETERMINATION that she had made Alphys cheer with joy, once Chara translated that emote for her.
