The girliest boy in school thinks he deserves to be bullied by his classmates and mistreated by his teachers.
It isn't until Papyrus Font sticks up for him that he realizes he doesn't need to change.
There might be someone out there who loves him for who he is.
*Underswap and Human AU*
*Note: I'm aware that in the underswap AU MTT is a ghost and Blooky is a robot but since they're both humans in this story I'm keeping their original names*


8. Home

Mettaton steps into Papyrus' house and the first thing he feels is safe. The house is warmed by a nice woodstove. It has the feeling of a nice family home. It's cleaner than Mettaton had expected and smells good, too.

Papyrus walks quietly to a door on the right side of the main living room and motions for Mettaton to stay where he is. 

He closes the door.

"Sometimes," he says softly, "I can still hear my mom typing at her old clunky computer in there. I went down in the middle of the night once and I swear I saw her."

Mettaton is a bit surprised at this, as it came out of nowhere.

"I told Sans but he thinks I was just having a nightmare."

"Do you think you really saw her?"

He shrugs. "Sorry if I creeped you out. I just didn't want you to find out on your own and be scared."

"Um, no that's fine."

He slumps back on the couch.

"So, what do you wanna do here?"

"I didn't really think about that, I just didn't want to go home and um," he pauses, "I wanted to be here with you."

Papyrus smiles.

Mettaton pulls his knees up to his chest.

"Would it be weird if I told you that you were my best friend?"

"Would you? Am I?"

He doesn't seem surprised or annoyed so Mettaton decides to answer.


"That wouldn't be weird," he isn't exactly smiling but his face seems brighter, "I would say the same. I don't talk to my other friends like I do with you."

"Yeah," Mettaton says, relieved, "I feel like you understand me."

Papyrus smiles and looks into Mettaton's eyes. Mettaton does the same.

The moment is suddenly interrupted by Mettaton's stomach grumbling.

He blushes. "I haven't eaten since lunch."

Papyrus laughs. "Neither have I," he gets up, "Come on," he says, walking to the kitchen.

Mettaton follows.

The first thing he can't help but notice us that the sink is about two feet higher than it should be and that it's obvious someone had added to the original base.

"Why is your sink so tall?" he asks quietly.

Papyrus replies with a simple, "My brother likes to put stuff under it," as if he's used to the question.

"Uh huh."

Papyrus opens the fridge.

"So we have spaghetti, with or without sauce, honey, and some cookies."

The fridge is filled with containers of spaghetti. In the one empty space next to that, there's an entire jar of cookies and in the door, there are four bottles of honey.

"We also have bread," Papyrus continues.

"Is this all you eat?" Mettaton asks, not trying to sound rude.

Papyrus frowns. "I usually go out. My brother on the other hand... Um, yes."

"Uhm. Is there anywhere to eat around here?"

"Yeah, come on," he says, motioning to the door, "Let's go to Muffet's."


Muffet's is small restaurant with a bar. There's a woman silently cleaning the bar. She has black hair, rectangular glasses and is wearing a waitress outfit. The restaurant is almost completely full.

Papyrus walks up to the bar and Mettaton follows.

"Hey, Muffet," Papyrus says taking a seat, "This is Mettaton," he continues, motioning to the boy sitting next to him.

She smiles and nods, giving them both a menu.

"She doesn't talk much," Papyrus says to Mettaton.

Mettaton nods, focusing on his menu.

"I'll get a spider donut," Papyrus tells Muffet. Muffet nods, then turns to look at Mettaton.

"Oh, um, I'll have that too."

She nods and goes through a door to, presumably, the kitchen.

After a few minutes of waiting Muffet comes back out with two plates, both with hot donuts on them. They're decorated with purple frosting with black frosting on top in the shape of a spider.

Mettaton stares at his donut.

"Aside from the decorations, why are they called spider donuts?" he asks.

"They have spiders in them," Papyrus answers simply, receiving a surprised look from Mettaton. He notices this and chuckles. "I'm kidding. I don't actually know, I think Muffet just likes spiders."


"You really believed that?"

Mettaton shrugs. "I've seen a lot of weird stuff today already. I don't know."

He takes a bite. It's delicious. He's never had a donut that didn't come from some kind of chain restaurant.

"S'good right?"

Mettaton nods eagerly.

Papyrus smiles.

They both eat, casually talking about the town and the people in the restaurant.

Everything seems so different despite that it's only the next town over. It's like a break from reality, which is definitely what Mettaton needed.

After a while Papyrus pays and the two leave together.

(Quick A/N: I should really know more about Underswap but it never occurred to me that the locations were swapped as well, for example, Snowdin is Sunnedout, or smth like that idk. Basically in this it's gonna take place in the normal Undertale map because frick I wasn't prepared for this. Sorry!)
