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'.

12. LOVE and Tolerance

As Woona awoke, she smiled happily.  She was certain that today would be a good day.  Climbing happily out of Sans' jacket, she shook herself off and prepared to make her way further through Snowdin.

"SANS!" Papyrus called out as he raced up to the pair.  "THERE IS A PROBLEM I NEED YOUR HELP ADDRESSING!  AND DON'T MAKE A PUN OUT OF IT!"

Sans chuckled as he stood up, rolling his eyes.  "whatcha need, bro?"

"I REALIZED THAT WITH HOW LOW WOONA'S STATS ARE, EVEN AS A HUMAN THERE WILL BE NO GLORY IN CAPTURING HER!" Papyrus complained.  "IT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR HER TO PRETEND TO BE HUMAN!  SHE MUST PRETEND TO BE SUPERHUMAN!"

"Superhuman?" Woona asked, confused.  "How do I do that?"

Sans' chuckle was even louder.  "bro just wants to play dress up with you, to make you look like one of his anime characters."

"NOT SO!" Papyrus proclaimed angrily.  "ANY RESEMBLANCE YOU WILL HAVE TO A SPECIFIC CHARACTER WILL BE PURELY COINCIDENTAL!"

"sure it will," Sans teased.

"I can play dress up!" Woona proclaimed happily.  "Whatcha got?"

Grinning, Papyrus first pulled out another Tough Glove.  "I GOT THIS FROM THE SNOWDIN SHOP!" he proclaimed happily.

"I have the other," Woona pointed out, taking it.  "I can wear the matched set.

 

Woona equipped the Tough Gloves.

 

Woona stared at the gloves, surprised that they shaped to her hooves when she put them on.

"NEXT IS THIS BANDANNA!" Papyrus proclaimed, pulling out a bandanna that looked like it had muscles drawn on it.  He quickly put it on her in place of her hat and ribbon.

 

Woona dequipped Cartographer's Cap and Faded Ribbon.

 

Woona equipped the Manly Bandanna.

 

"AND FINALLY, I HAVE FOUND THE PERFECT CAPE FOR YOU!" Papyrus proclaimed happily, pulling out a large apron.  "NO SUPERHERO IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A CAPE!"

Accepting this, Woona put the apron on like a cape.

 

Woona also equipped the Stained Apron.

 

"NOW YOUR SUPERHERO DISGUISE IS COMPLETE!" Papyrus proclaimed happily.  "NYEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!"

"So...a disguise is all it takes to convince monsters I'm superhuman?" Woona asked, frowning.

Papyrus stopped laughing.  "YOU'RE RIGHT!  YOU MUST DEMONSTRATE YOUR SUPERHUMAN POWERS!  COME!"  Grabbing Woona, he dashed off.

"papyrus, i'm not sure that's such a good idea..." Sans commented worriedly.

"NONSENSE!" Papyrus proclaimed eagerly.  "HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY GO WRONG!"

Before long, Papyrus had Woona in a small cave.  "NOW, WOONA, UPPERCUT THIS CAVE WALL WITH ALL THE STRENGTH YOU CAN BRING TO BEAR!  THAT WILL PROVE TO EVERYONE THAT YOU ARE SUPERHUMAN!"

Woona nodded, though unsure if this would work.  She knew she wasn't that strong physically...but she couldn't bear to disappoint Pappy...

Then she had a brilliant idea.  She would put her magic behind the punch as well, truly putting all the strength of her tiny body into a single blow.

As she dashed forward, she felt Chara talking to someone.  Do you miss the sun, Asriel?

As her blow struck, energy flared from the stone around her neck as her magic was instantly converted to pure physical power.

The mountain exploded.

Woona was not the only one staring upward in awe and confusion as the sun streamed freely into the Underground.  She could hear amazement echoing throughout the monster civilization as sunlight embraced them all.  At first, she thought she'd done something amazing...but then she felt her strength growing.

Staring up in terror, she saw chunks of pony carved masonry falling, casting shadows against the sun...followed by pony bodies.

She saw Tia's amongst them, no force slowing her fall.

Woona screamed in absolute horror.

 

 

Woona shot awake in Sans' jacket, still screaming and thrashing around.  Moments later, she felt bony hands gripping her, pulling her into a hug.  "it's alright," Sans told her quickly, reassuring her.  "it was just a bad dream.  that never really happened..."

Anymore, Chara commented dryly.

H u s h , Sans scolded in his serious voice, making sure only Chara could hear.  S h e  d o e s n ' t  n e e d  t h a t  g u i l t .

Having not heard the exchange, Woona looked up at Sans, tears in her eyes.  "But...but it felt so real..."

"i know," Sans reassured her.  "i've had dreams like that, too.  but it's nothing to worry about.  they aren't real...they're just dreams."  Once he was certain Woona had calmed down, he set her down in the snow.  "wait here for me, okay?"

Woona nodded, and Sans stepped behind a tree.  She never noticed the Tough Glove vanishing from inside her bags.

 

 

Sans stepped out from behind another tree, right in front of Papyrus, who promptly screamed in a more high pitched voice than Woona had.  "SANS!" Papyrus gasped out, his hand going to his chest.  "I'VE TOLD YOU NOT TO COME OUT OF NOWHERE IN FRONT OF ME LIKE THAT!  I'LL NEVER GET INTO THE ROYAL GUARD WITH A SHRIEK OF TERROR LIKE THAT!"

"you brought stuff to dress up woona as a superhero?" Sans asked, ignoring Papyrus question.

Papyrus paused.  He'd long grown used to how Sans always seemed to know about certain things just before they happened.  He'd always passed it off as 'dreams', and that when he had them it was a bad sign.  "Y-YES," Papyrus replied.  "I WAS...GOING TO DRESS HER UP AS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SUPERHEROES..."

"give me the bandanna and glove," Sans instructed.  "i'll reimburse you for them."

Papyrus blinked.  "BUT...BUT WHY WOULD YOU-"  Papyrus cut himself off as Sans showed his serious expression, the light in his eyes vanishing, revealing empty black pits.  "O-OKAY, SANS...BUT WON'T YOU EXPLAIN WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT PLAYING DRESS UP WITH WOONA?"

Sans smiled softly as he took the glove and bandanna.  "nothing wrong with dressing her up," he replied reassuringly.  He set the two gloves and bandanna on the ground.  With no more warning than that, Sans conjured one of his Gaster Blasters - a dragon/goat like skull shaped laser cannon - and used it to eradicate the three pieces of equipment from existence.  "just not that character."

Papyrus stared in shock.  He knew Sans hated using those Blasters, though he was never quite certain why.  If Sans had called one out to deal with this, it was definitely serious.  "BUT...CAPE?" he asked, holding up the apron.

Sans smiled, looking completely normal as the Gaster Blaster vanished.  "that's fine.  she'll look real cute in that."

 

 

Woona smiled happily as Sans and Papyrus returned.  "Hey!" she greeted happily, rushing up to hug Sans.

Papyrus smiled at that...not that he could wear any expression other than a smile, being a skeleton.  "I HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU, WOONA!" he proclaimed eagerly.  He happily pulled out the apron and put it on her.  "TA-DAH!  IT'S SUPERMOON!"

 

Woona equipped the Stained Apron.

 

Woona squealed happily, racing around in a circle.  "Dun du-du-dun!  It's Supermoon!"

Her new superhero identity banished her nightmares, and filled her with DETERMINATION.
