Mira feeling kind of awkward as she was shuffled behind a screen, the girl felt more like a lab experiment than anything to be honest with all this talk of souls and willpower and such. Did they really think she was somehow going to be tough enough to just go through the barrier like it was nothing??

Doing as she was told though as it seemed to take ages for the scan to be done, the once hopeful look on Alphys’s face soon turned to disappointment when what came up on the screen was a image of a pink heart rather than any of the ones she had been hoping for....

“W-well, I guess the good news is we have plenty of room down here for a human...~”, chuckling nervously as her entire plan had pretty much hinged on Mira hopefully having resilience or even determination, this was just ‘love’, plain old love that couldn’t do them any good in regards to the barrier.

“Well you have a pretty rare soul as far as I can tell Mira, but...uhhh...loves not going to be much good to use for willpower experiments to be blunt”, Shaking her head, the scientist felt like a fool for hinging everything on such a low outcome experiment, “I’m sorry, but I will continue to research more options in the meantime”.

Every word Alphys was saying seeming to be bringing down Mira’s hope more and more though as she exited the scan, the blooming happiness that had been in her eyes didn’t seem quite so joyful anymore, her voice quiet as she turned towards Sans and Asgore, “I’m sorry...”.

Sans watched the screen hopefully, but grew concerned when he noticed Alphys' expression turn to one of disappointment. Apparently this wasn't one of the souls that would work for their idea. While Sans was a bit disappointed by that for Mira's sake since it meant she couldn't go home right away, he made sure none of that showed in his expression, since he didn't want Mira to get the wrong idea. It already seemed like she'd taken Alphys' blunt explanation a bit hard and was growing hopeless again, and Sans didn't want to add to that.

"mira. you have nothing to apologize for." Sans said, "this is entirely out of your control, don't be so hard on yourself for something that isn't even your fault." Sans hoped she would listen to what he said and not blame herself just because their first idea didn't work. They still had other ideas they could look into, and they could do more research on top of that. "we'll still find a way to get you back home. it'll just take a while longer."

.......

Asgore felt said to see the joy leave Mira, especially when she'd seemed so hopeful before. "Please, don't apologize. Sans is right. We will find a way for you to go home, and we'll take care of you in the meantime." Asgore wanted to reassure Mira she'd be able to go home soon, but since he didn't actually have any ideas he was certain would work, he couldn't offer much reassurance.

"Dr. Alphys," Asgore said, turning to the Royal Scientist, "is there anything I can do to assist you with your research? I would be happy to help in any way I can."

Mira feeling kind of pathetic that she apparently had a ‘emotional soul’, whatever that was, it didn’t sound like it was too good a thing to have and certainly wasn’t useful in helping to get rid of the barrier judging from everyone’s reaction.

The human had wanted to make herself useful in the only want she knew how and had totally failed, even if this was pretty much beyond her control.

“I-I just....”, sighing as she tried to find the right words to explain how she felt even though San’s seemed to be sure things would work out fine, Mira gave him a hopeful smile despite feeling pretty broken inside right now, “yeah, we will just find another way...”.

Alphys though hadn’t been done explaining the benefits of a ‘love’ soul, she eventually spoke up again and tried to reassure Mira there was some things a emotional soul could do that physical ones could not, “you might not be physically strong but, uhh...if you trained there is the possibility you could learn to use healing magic...if it makes you feel better~”.

The awkward scientist not being 100% sure it was true, there was at least the theory that a human could learn some minor magic depending on their soul strength, her nodding to the king when he asked if there was any way he could help in regards to new research, “If you could get your hands on any books of human history or monster-human interactions I could probably get a clearer picture of the levels of differences between, well...everything that separates us”.

Sans guessed that despite the smile Mira gave him and agreeing they would find another way, she wasn't entirely convinced. Sans felt bad that his attempt to reassure her hadn't worked, and tried to figure out what to say to cheer her up. Unfortunately, he wasn't sure of what could potentially cheer her up, if what he'd already tried hadn't had much effect.

Sans was momentarily distracted from trying to think of something when Alphys spoke up. 'interesting, i didn't know humans could learn magic,' Sans thought, curious as to whether it was indeed possible. And if it was, what kinds of magic could other soul types learn? Now there were a bunch of questions and thoughts swirling around in his mind, though he stopped himself from blurting them out like he might have if it had just been him and Alphys discussing random theories like before. Maybe he'd ask his questions later.

Regardless, he hoped the idea of learning magic would cheer Mira up, at least a bit.

.....

"Certainly, I'll begin my search for such books right away," Asgore offered, already thinking through where he might find books that had the information Alphys needed. There might be one in the library in Snowdin, but it was more likely if there were books on human history they would be in the castle, so he would start his search there.

"I can leave now to look for them, if that's alright with you all? I'm afraid I'll be of more use finding things for you than participating in the conversation itself," Asgore admitted, looking slightly embarrassed. Alphys and Sans were much more suited to the scientific aspect than he was. Especially if the technology Alphys had been using earlier was any indication.

The thought of somehow being able to use magic seeming ridiculous to Mira, she had once thought that monsters were not real either though and look how that turned out...so maybe it would be wise to go along with what was being said rather than try to think in human reality.

‘Healing magic?, love soul?...I don’t understand any of this...!’

Doing her best to give a hopeful smile still to her new friends though so they maybe wouldn’t give up too, Mira may not have had any experience with magic but Alphys seemed pretty convincing in the way they talked about it at least.


“Remember, it’s not for sure though that you can learn it, but it seems like it would be worth a shot to try just for fun maybe in the meantime”, The scientist already bustling about as she had plans to do more research into what they could do with the human’s ‘love’ centered soul, she figured Sans would want to know more about this all later judging from the confused look on his face.

It wasn’t too often that Alphys managed to get the skeleton confused and she took it as a personal victory to have one-uped him for once on something he didn’t know.

“That sounds like a excellent idea, the more I know about how the humans exist with such a strong power the quicker we might have answers to getting this human home”, Noting that Asgore wasn’t much of the science type, Alphys wasn’t going to confuse him more with her talks of ‘willpower’ and ‘love souls’ as he surely had books in the castle about human history he could access to help her out instead.

“I would like to learn more about all this science related stuff on souls, I-it’s fascinating”, Mira meanwhile deciding to talk to Sans as Alphys and Asgore were talking about books relating to humans, she had never heard of any of this stuff on the surface, “I’m not sure about the magic and healing part though~”.

Laughing a little happily at the last part, the concern in Mira’s eyes about getting to the surface disappeared for a moment as she was truly just existing, even if she was stuck underground with friendly monsters.

Asgore nodded, "Well in that case, I'll go start looking now. I'll stop by again after I find something." Asgore waved to the other three and then set off back to the castle. Taking the longer, lesser used path again, he only ran into a couple of monsters here and there, and though he stopped to greet them as usual, he still reached the castle again relatively quickly.

Asgore began searching through all of the books he had in the castle. Many of them were on gardening, and there were several cookbooks (which he'd been attempting to learn from). However, he also had some history books, and he began looking through those for information on humans or how humans and monsters had interacted before the monsters were sealed under Mount Ebott.

It took awhile of searching, but eventually he found a few books that seemed promising.

........

Seeing Mira laugh a bit and seem less concerned for a moment, Sans smiled. "yeah, i think it's interesting too. dr. alphys knows more than me about it, but i can try to answer some questions. and you don't have to try the magic thing if you don't want to," Sans said. "as far as the basics on souls, humans can have several different soul types, mostly based on traits such as integrity or kindness."

"the trait their soul has typically is a strong part of their personality; for example, a human with an integrity soul would value honesty and trustworthiness." Sans continued. "i actually didn't know about humans possibly being able to use magic myself." Sans shrugged. "regardless, i'd assume that the type of soul one has would determine what kind of magic they could learn. you'd have to ask dr. alphys more about that, though."

Noticing Asgore about to leave, Sans waved to him.

(Random soul headcanons... I didn't wanna go too far with that in case you had other ideas, though)

(Your welcome to do all the headcanons! :) )


“But I do want to try it, it sounds fun~”, Mira already thinking of how she could possibly learn to use some sort of magic to assist others, her soul may have been relatively weak in physical combativeness but it was strong in other areas like compassion and healing, “e-even if I’m not very good at it it could turn out really ‘bone-tiful’~”.

Giggling to herself as she had picked up on San’s habit of puns, Mira listened to him explain the various ways a soul could be connected to a personality as she nodded at the thought of her soul...almost being sentient in a strange way. It was strange to think that one’s soul basically seemed to compose a entire being....

“It doesn’t necessarily mean one type can’t learn another’s traits, it would just be harder to learn is all”, Alphys geeking out a bit over Mira now that Asgore has gone to look for research books, she had so many things she wanted to ask the human!

“Uhh, so I’ve heard your kind pilots giant robots for battle up on the surface, is it true??”, Alphys sheepishly asking her biggest question right off the bat, Mira seemed more than a little confused as she glanced at the scientist, than Sans...than back at Alphys in thought.

“Well, why don’t we leave that up for you to see for yourself when we get to the surface?”, Mira smiling as she didn’t want to break Alphys’s heart, she didn’t get where these questions of robots had came from seeing as monsters were underground far from human sources.

————

Meanwhile, back in Snowdin

It had taken a while but Papyrus was sure he had fulfilled his brother’s wish of making a room for the pet-well, not pet human that had fallen into the underground!

Managing to secure a actual bed as he had been told to do, the various squeaky toys and bones on the ground were a sign that he had only half gotten what Mira really was.

But, he had done at least one thing right and gotten some older clothings from some residents of Snowdin that he had tipped off about the human, the village buzzing with talks already of the newcomer to the underground.

Humans wore clothing, right? Well...even if they didn’t they could be thankful to the great Papyrus for thinking of it either way!

(Okay! Also oh my word Papyrus XD)

Sans laughed at the pun, glad to see Mira making jokes as that suggested she was feeling better now. When Alphys spoke up, Sans decided to take a backseat in the conversation, knowing Alphys likely had many questions for Mira...

...Though her first question threw him off by quite a bit. Did humans really have giant robots they used to battle? That sounded kind of like something out of one of those anime Alphys was so fond of, but she did know a lot more about humans than Sans did, so...

Mira's response didn't really answer the question, though the way she glanced between him and Alphys a couple of times suggested that it wasn't entirely true. Sans decided not to ask about it in front of Alphys though, just in case it wasn't true at all as he didn't want Alphys to feel disappointed.

Which led Sans to wonder what really was going on on the surface. The monsters had been trapped under Mount Ebott for quite a long time, who knew what the humans could have done in that time? While the monsters did occasionally find things from the human world that made their way to the Underground, he doubted it was the height of their technology or anything. After all, for it to have made its way here, the humans likely were trying to get rid of it.

Oh well, it couldn't be too bad if Mira wanted to go back so much, right? Anyway, there were more important things for him to focus on right now, like what to do about the barrier.

(I'll bring Asgore back after the conversation's over since I don't want to interrupt anything ^^)

‘I-I don’t know the answer to any of these...’

Mira trying her best to answer every question Alphys had for her as most seemed to do with how she thought humans were on the surface, the girl didn’t want to break the scientists dorky heart at all as she simply gave vague answers on each of them.

Alphys had kind of a run down of topics to ask Mira about though, ranging from if cat Girls really were a thing to more scientifically minded ones about the human body that made the girl blush awkwardly and suggest books instead.

-A few questions later-

“I-I assure you that we don’t carry around giant swords at all, I mean look at me”, Mira standing at a mere 5’0, the swords Alphys brought up at a point in her questions were bigger than she was tall, her truly looking for a polite way out of the bombardment of strange questions by the 10th one as she glanced at Sans in the hope his teleport magic could do some wonders.

‘Come on Sans, you see I’m struggling here, help me out’

(Paps did his best! And ok :) )

By now Sans was convinced half of Alphys' questions were entirely based on anime, and he felt bad as Mira tried to answer them without hurting Alphys' feelings. Though Sans had to admit the one about the giant swords humans supposedly carried was a bit much, even for Alphys. After all, Mira clearly didn't have one; as far as Sans knew she just had the knife, which made a lot more sense for a human to carry around than a giant sword that probably wouldn't even be useful to fight with if it was nearly as tall as you were or taller.

Seeing Mira looking at him hopefully for an escape, Sans decided to step in and get the conversation back on track. "so, uh, dr. alphys, as educational as this is, maybe we should discuss the barrier some more?" Sans hoped that changing the subject back to the barrier would distract Alphys from her questions for a bit and give Mira a break. If not, he might have to make up some excuse and just get Mira out of here; she looked like she was getting uncomfortable with the unusual questions.

Well, he did figure Papyrus would be finished setting up a room for Mira and want to meet her sometime soon, so that would probably be a suitable excuse...

(True! ^^)
