WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
(in Sans’s POV)
* your smile as bright as day;
your red scarf in the wind.
the happy, yet dreadful days.
witness the death of my kin.
* the pattern never changes;
the apathetic times.
but there’s also joyful ranges.
from the human or my bro of mine. (that’s you.)
* i admire every movement;
but you make mistakes sometimes.
i see you with the human—
no! don’t go this time!
* now we’ve returned to square one.
you greet me with your smile.
you rant on laziness and puns.
is this really all worth while?
* the snowflakes fall, and your head just lolls.
i know good and bad times are ahead.
but i know it’s all worth while.
…because i’ll see your smiles again.
(In Papyrus’s POV)
* YOUR SMILE IS VERY WARM.
BUT I BELIEVE SOMETHING HAS CHANGED.
YOU WATCH ME WITH A WORRIED LOOK—
BROTHER, ARE YOU OKAY?
* YOU OFTEN KEEP IT SECRET,
BUT I HEAR YOU SAY I…DIE?
I’M NOT SAYING IT’S A WEAKNESS!
I JUST HATE SEEING YOU CRY…
* YOU GRIN AND ASK “ARE YOU HAPPY?”
“OF COURSE”, I SAY AND SMILE TOO.
IT’S TRUE, AND I SAY IT GLADLY.
BUT MY QUESTION IS, ARE YOU?
* THE SNOW’S FALLING AROUND US,
THE HUMAN SOLVES OUR PUZZLES.
I THINK WE HAVE EARNED THEIR TRUST!
I CERTAINLY LEFT THEM CONFUZZLED.
* HOURS PASSED, NOW WE’RE ON THE SURFACE.
AFTER FEAR AND GLEE FOR A WHILE.
BUT NOW I KNOW YOU’RE ALRIGHT.
WITH YOUR AMAZING, GENUINE SMILE.
(Said simultaneously, but in their minds. Not said aloud.)
i love you, bro.
I LOVE YOU, BROTHER.
Sometimes poems require explanations, so here they are for those who want them.
Part 1: Sans is talking about Papyrus and how he’s seen him die, but also mentions the Pacifist run he is currently experiencing. He loves seeing Papyrus smile, which is why it is mentioned frequently. The reason “smile” in the last line is plural, is because now he can see all his friends’ smiles as well.
Part 2: Papyrus also loves seeing Sans smile. He claims it is very “warm” when he means it. However, he also worries about Sans’s emotional well-being, because he notices some hinting towards him being a little sad. When Frisk brings everyone to the surface, he sees the smile he was talking about previously—a real one he hasn’t seen in a while. He believes it is “amazing and genuine”.
They both say they love each other to themselves. I loved writing this poem. <3
