    @Sans

    Papyrus greatly enjoyed going on adventures, especially with his little brother Sans. The two had a bond that made them the best of friends that other siblings couldn't always say the same. They had been through a lot, the two of them. Now that they had found each other in Pandora, it made being trapped much more bearable and even exciting! There was so much to see and do and despite the ups and downs, Sans had been by Papyrus through it all, just like any good brother would. Papyrus appreciated it and was glad to be able to bring him along to his latest expedition.

    There had been an advertisement in the paper about a certain hotel arriving in Pandora. It was incredible that a place could disappear and reappear in such a quick time, so all the more reason to visit while it was available. What had captured Papyrus' attention however, had been one detail that had been casually mentioned once: monsters. Maybe they would be able to find some of their friends at this new place!! Even if they weren't from the Underground, Papyrus would love to make more monster friends. There were so many humans around here and while they were nice and all, Papyrus wanted to meet more of his kind, skeletons especially. That afternoon, Papyrus had convinced his brother to take a trip and now here they were.

    Papyrus carried two suitcases in his arms as they got off the bus. He was wearing his 'Cool Dude' outfit, he was on vacation after all, and wore his hat backwards. "ISN'T THIS EXCITING SANS??" Papyrus said, grinning. "WE GET TO MEET OTHER MONSTERS HERE!! MAYBE WE'LL EVEN FIND SOME OF OUR FRIENDS."

    The hotel before them was quite imposing and it reminded Papyrus of Asgore's castle in the core. Immediately Papyrus took off through the gates and into the lobby. The inside felt cozy and right at home for two skeleton brothers. Papyrus set to the task of getting a room for them for the weekend. As he happily chatted to the receptionist (who happened to have three eyes), a mysterious small shape watched in the corner of the room, hidden behind a potted plant.

    Papyrus was really interested in that monster hotel thing he had found out about one of these days, which of course meant that they were going to check it out. As always, Papyrus was the one getting Sans to go do stuff and this time they were taking quite the trip despite it being barely a month since they got their own place. Now it looked like they were going to spend a while in that hotel, considering how much stuff Papyrus had packed up.

    Sans himself was wearing the same outfit as always, he put a pair of sneakers on instead of slippers, but that's pretty much the most effort he put into looking presentable. Papyrus was carrying all the luggage while Sans just made sure to store the important stuff for him in the dimensional box.

    "yea, there haven't been a lot of monsters around from what i've seen." Despite not sounding nearly as excited about it as Papyrus was, Sans was in fact a little curious about the type of people they were gonna run into in there, even if he was sure none of them would be from back home.

    Once they got there, he gave a friendly wave at the recepcionist while his brother chatter with her, only occasionally chiming in just in case his brother began going on a tangent. While the talking was going on though, he noticed something hiding behind a potted plant. It was a small dog that was a skeleton just like them and, perhaps because of that similarity, it seemed to have gotten interested in them.

    Sans just eyed it curiously for a moment but then didn't think much of it, instead he just began taking in his surroundings. This whole hotel gave him some spooky vibes which honestly made it significantly more interesting than your typical fancy hotel. It didn't look like there were all that many people around though, but maybe they were just all in their rooms or somewhere else in the building.

    "....AND THANK YOU SO MUCH," Papyrus concluded their conversation. What a pleasant monster. This one had been the first one to encounter so far and he looked forward to seeing the other types the hotel had to offer. The receptionist had told him there were many people here, but so far, it seemed to be empty. Picking up the bags, Papyrus swung the key on his finger quickly. "LET'S GO GET TO OUR ROOM SANS!" With a spin, Papyrus hurried up the right staircase to find their room. This place was immense and was bigger inside than it looked. They passed various rooms all with a medieval touch. A pair of suits of armor passed by and Papyrus waved at them merrily.

    When they reached their room, Papyrus fumbled around as he tried to balance their luggage while trying to open the door. When he got it, he beamed and zipped inside, quickly unpacking and throwing miscellaneous items out (some of them not making much sense for this kind of vacation). "OH I'M SO EXCITED SANS!!! THE RECEPTIONIST SAID THERE WERE OTHER SKELETONS HERE!! AND THERE'S LOTS TO LOOK AT TOO! I WONDER HOW OLD THIS CASTLE IS." He continued to chatter as he explored the room. It was pretty cozy with old furniture, candle lit, and two beds with velvet covers. Immediately Papyrus ran over and hopped into bed, bouncing on it slightly to check it's firmness.

    When he noticed his brother wasn't responding right away, Papyrus looked over at him. "WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT SANS??"

    Sans didn't really have much to add to the conversation, although the idea of meeting other skeletons appealed to him a little, he wondered how different those were going to be compared to him and Papyrus. Sans was just content to follow after Papyrus while he carried all the luggage over to the floor their room was waiting for them.

    "i don't think this is really a castle, in a manor of speaking." Sans joked, his grin growing a little as he waited for Papyrus' reaction.

    As they made their way into their room and Papyrus began having his fun jumping on the bed and also unpacking, Sans noticed that they were being followed by that same little dog from earlier. Sans started watching it with curiosity as it was peeking through the doorway and then hid itself when Papyrus began asking Sans what was going on.

    "oh it's just-"

    Before Sans could even finish his sentence properly there was a bark and the dog rushed inside the room and grabbed a bag from among all the luggage with its mouth. Sans wasn't really sure what was the contents of the bags as Papyrus had done all the preparations, but he wondered if there was anything important in there.

    "that." He pointed at the dog, his tone of voice rather flat.

    It had taken a few moments for Sans' pun to sink in. At first Papyrus had thought, what a stupid question of course it was a castle...then he was immediately irritated. "SANS, I SWEAR TO GOD, WE ARE NOT HAVING THIS ON THE TRIP!" Why did his brother always have to make those jokes?

    Papyrus lifted his head to glare at his brother when suddenly a white flash flew into the room followed by barking. A dog?? What was a dog doing in the middle of a hotel?? The mutt immediately grabbed the nearest bag, which happened to be full of Papyrus' clothes as well as his rubber duck collection
    -because he liked baths and they made them ten times better-. Papyrus jumped from the bed. "HEY!!!! LET GO OF THAT YOU MUTT!!!"

    At the sound of Papyrus' angry voice, the dog whirled around, looking at him. With a wag of its tail, it took off around the room.
    "STOP IT!!" Papyrus chased the dog, running into furniture as he scrambled to grab it. Every swipe of his hand just missed it. Finally the dog zig zagged between Sans' legs before taking off down the hall.

    "DANGIT!!! SANS WE HAVE TO STOP IT!!" Papyrus shouted before rushing out of the room after it. "WHERE DID IT GO??"

    Sans was merely watching as the incredibly agile dog kept one-upping his brother as he chased it all around the room until it eventually rushed out of the room, going between Sans' legs as it did so. Sans briefly considered just grabbing the dog's soul to keep it in place and let Papyrus recover the bag, but this whole thing was just too amusing to let it end prematurely.

    "i think it went downstairs," he said as he peeked out of the room and saw a blur going downstairs, "that one is pretty quick, catching it is gonna be pretty ruff."

    One way or another, Sans was just going to casually walk after Papyrus and the dog as the chase resumed. Suddenly this vacation had gotten a whole deal more entertaining, but at the same time he had to wonder if the dog had an owner, it wasn't wearing a collar, but who knows, maybe the owner was just irresponsible. If it was really a wild dog, then Sans was starting to have a few ideas...

    Papyrus stood outside of the room, waving his head back and forth wildly as he searched for the animal. Of course, of all times for this to happen to him, it was during vacation when he was trying to relax and have a good time!! Things just never seemed to work out that way for him it seemed. At his brother's suggestion, Papyrus turned in time to see the delinquent take off down the stairs. "GRRRRRR," Papyrus growled. "SANS YOU'RE NOT HELPING!!"

    Sprinting towards the stairs, Papyrus could see the dog had already made it to the bottom and was taking off down another hallway. He would need to move quickly than he could run if he was going to catch the little scoundrel. Leaping up, Papyrus sat on the banister to the staircase and slid the whole way down, shouting "WeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHH" until he landed with perfect form at the bottom. "NYEHEHEHE!!!" He struck a pose, proud of being able to do what he had just done, and continued the chase.

    "COME BACK HERE DOG!!" Papyrus shouted as he burst past other visitors. The dog was nimble, diving in between monsters and people alike with ease. Suddenly, Papyrus got an idea. Using his abilities, he shot a bone ahead of the dog, and hovered it in the hallway.

    Momentarily, the dog forgot about the pursuit, staring wide-eyed at the floating object above him. This gave Papyrus just enough time to grab the suitcase. "AH-HA!!! I GOT YOU NOW!!" The dog barked in surprised before disappearing around the corner once more. Papyrus wheezed as he caught his breath. "THAT WAS QUITE THE WORK OUT. I'LL CATCH THAT DOG YET!!"

    Sans kept following behind Papyrus, managing to keep up with him and the dog despite only walking at a normal pace and going down the stairs like a normal person instead of pulling a stunt. It helped that the dog was just kinda going back and forth around the place while all he had to was try to keep up with his brother's antics.

    "you go, bro!" he said with the minimum possible amount of enthusiasm he could muster as he watched Papyrus' clever attempt at catching the dog that just narrowly failed.

    They were clearly disturbing the other guess with this chase, but Sans knew they wouldn't get tossed out of the building or anything, considering the fact that it would be their fault that some stray dog had gotten inside and followed them to their room. He had to wonder how exactly that mutt managed to sneak around without being seen. Maybe the security around was just lazy.

    After Papyrus had caught his breath, he gave his brother a big ol smile. "I'LL GET HIM SANS, DON'T YOU WORRY!!" The encouragement filled him with determination to catch the dog and Papyrus was back up and running. This hallway was a bit longer and thinner than the others. When he reached the end, there was a large set of doors that were just barely pushed open. Papyrus burst through them. This room contained a few sets of coffins, a bookcase on the far end and some windows. A fireplace crackled in the corner.

    His eyesockets scanned the room. There appeared to be no sign of the dog or his suitcase.

    "I KNOW YOU'RE IN HERE!!!" Papyrus shouted wiping his head back and forth. "YOU CAN'T HIDE FROM THE GREAT PAPYRUS!!!"

    He approached the first coffin. This one was open, but empty, with red silky lining on the inside. Papyrus investigated it, but didn't see any sign of a disturbance. He moved onto the next one. This one was closed. He reached for the lid, but right as he was about to touch it, it rattled loudly. Terrified, Papyrus jumped back, his bones shaking.

    "NYEHE..." He laughed nervously. "S-SORRY..."

    When he moved onto the last coffin, this one had a large crack on the front of it. Papyrus got a bad vibe from it and debated whether he should touch it or not. He decided against it, being that a dog couldn't open a coffin anyway and went to go check the bookcase. After another check of the room, Papyrus had to admit defeat.

    When Sans entered the room, Papyrus said, "IT WAS JUST HERE, SANS!! I SWEAR!! IT JUST SEEMED TO HAVE DISAPPEARED COMPLETELY!!"

    Sans watched as Papyrus proceeded to break into one of the rooms in the hotel. Ok now that might cause them a few issues with the staff, but at least they had a good reason to be doing that.

    He came inside just in time to see Papyrus messing with some coffins and get himself scared by one of them. Sans snickered in silence, throughly enjoying the entire mess.

    "well, if the dog is here all we gotta do is block the door, right? you could say it put the final nail on its coffin."

    Sans then proceeded to do just that, sitting down right in front of the door and waiting to see what was going to happen next.

    Suddenly one of the coffins Papyrus had not opened burst open and out of it came the dog, somehow, and he began making a dash towards the door, moving past Papyrus before he could even react. Sans made the laziest attempt at catching it he could, just extending his arms forward waiting for it to come as if it was coming at him for a hug. Surprisingly enough the dog actually crashed right into Sans, tackling him into the ground as the skeleton actually managed to keep a hold of it.

    "hey, look. i got it." Sans stated rather unenthusiastically, although he also seemed a little dazed.

    He sat back up and surprisingly enough the skeletal dog was just sitting on his lap with the bag he had stolen from Papyrus in his mouth. It wasn’t doing anything except just sit there and wag its tail. Sans had a feeling that the only reason it wasn’t licking him was the lack of a tongue.

    "i think it likes me." Sans then started to pet it on the head, which it seemed to be quite enjoying judging from all the tail wagging and panting it was doing.

    This was getting ridiculous!! Clearly this dog knew its way around the hotel. There's no way it could have gotten far, unless it was a magical dog of course, in which case their luggage may as well have been gone for good. What a frustrating way to start of a vacation. Papyrus held his arms rigid at his sides as he fumed.

    "GOOD IDEA SANS. I GUESS ALL THAT TIME PLAYING KEEP AWAY THE HUMAN PAID OFF!!" The skeleton brother hurried over to the door and slammed it shut enthusiastically. Then, with the pose of an amateurly trained human chaser turned puppy chaser, Papyrus stood ready at his brother's side. As some time passed however, Papyrus grew impatient.

    "GRRR, WHY DON'T YOU JUST COME OUT ALREADY!!!" Papyrus shouted.

    Half way through his exclaimation, the dog leaped forth from a coffin. As Papyrus scrambled to catch the pooch, it easily wove past him. "DON'T LET HIM GET AWAY!!!"

    In a series of comical flailing by Papyrus, he fell forwards in a dive while the dog flew right into Sans' grasp. As Papyrus got up, he brushed himself off. "NICE JOB SANS!"

    "ALRIGHT YOU," Papyrus started, pointing a boney finger at the mutt. "GIVE ME BACK THAT SUITCASE. NOBODY TAKES FROM THE GREAT-" at this moment he grabbed the suitcase and tugged- "PAPYRUS!!"

    The dog let go right as he pulled and he ended up rolling backwards and crashing into the coffins. Papyrus groaned, rubbing his head. Jeez, he couldn't catch a break today could he?

    "SANS, THAT DOG HAD GOT TO GO!! I'M GOING TO CONTACT THE STAFF TO GET RID OF THAT THING SO IT DOESN'T RUIN OUR VACATION ANYMORE!!"

    Sans just watched as Papyrus finally managed to recover his suitcase, but not without a fight concluded by him rolling into the coffins like a bowling ball. Sans and the dog winced collectively as they heard the impact, but Sans knew that wouldn't be anythin more than a minor inconvenience to his brother.

    Said brother also wanted that dog to go away, something Sans couldn't quite agree with. That dog had made the start of this new vacation very fun and interesting, so he couldn't help but want it to stick around for a little longer, or for as long as he could.

    "aw, c'mon bro, it just wanted to play." As if on cue, the dog began nuzzling against the skeleton's head, which he responded by petting it instead. "maybe its lonely and just needs some friends, this place does seem kinda... dead." He shrugged.

    The dog then began barking excitedly and wagging its tail, looking up at Papyrus with big, cute puppy eyesockets while still just sitting on Sans' lap. The small skeleton himself was also looking up at his brother, gesturing towards the dog with his two hands with an almost childish smile on his face as quietly insisted that his bro gave the little bugger a chance.

    Why things always have to come in and mess up his big plans? Papyrus got up, dusting himself off with an irritated look. "SANS, LOOK AT WHAT IT'S DONE SO FAR!! THAT DOG IS NOTHING BUT TROUBLE I CAN ALREADY SEE IT." As he folded his arms, the dog watched him from a far. As Papyrus made eye contact, the spell of the cute dog began to slowly win him over.

    He rolled his eyes, still adamant that the dog should stay. "BESIDES SANS, WE'D HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF IT AND BY WE, I MEAN ME." Papyrus wasn't looking forward to having another responsibility added to his work load. But it was so cute...

    No. No. No. It didn't matter how cute the dog was or the fact that it was lonely and probably fending for itself in this dark cruel world and still looking at him with that cuddly, adorable face...

    Papyrus shook his head. "YOU STOP THAT!!" he snapped at the dog, turning his body around so he couldn't look at it. It was bad enough whenever lesser dog would be around and constantly trying to steal his special attack. To have another one would add too much excitement. And Papyrus would have to get toys, maybe a fuzzy bunny or a squeaky ball, and a bed and food...

    "I JUST DON'T THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA IS ALL," Papyrus finally said. "WHAT IF HE BELONGS TO SOMEONE ELSE?"

    The dog made good use of his dog magic and got Papyrus under his spell very quickly. Sans watched with amusement as his bro tried to resist adopting the dog and presented some good reasons for it even, but it didn't take long until the pup made him cave in. He was a huge softie after all, plus Sans couldn't deny that he was a little endeared by their new canine friend as well.

    "well, if he belonged to someone else, he would have a collar, right?" Sans then began petting the skeleton dog around the neck as a way of drawing attention to it. "i think we're good on that front. plus, he's a skeleton like us, so we don't have to worry about fur getting everywhere, or cleaning up whenever he needs to pee and stuff, or even worry about food and water, i think. i'd say we have a pretty good deal here."

    It was pretty clear at this point that the pup was coming with them home when they were done with their stay in the hotel, so that was something to look forward to. Papyrus also seemed aware that most of the actual taking care of the dog would go to him and he seemed ok with it so that was nice. All the benefits of having a pet without having to deal with any of the downsides, that sure sounded ideal.

    "say, he's gonna need a name. how about toby?" He said as he grabbed the pup and turned it to face him, to which it responded with a happy bark. "heh, i think he likes it."

    Sans made an excellent case. The dog had no owner clearly and seemed to already get along well with Sans. And Papyrus wouldn't mind making another friend, even if it couldn't really talk. Maikng a very loud and drawn out sign, Papyrus replied, "OKAY FINE. WE CAN KEEP THE DOG. BUT IF THAT MUTT DESTROYS OUR APARTMENT THEN HE'S GOING STRAIGHT BACK HERE!"

    Papyrus smiled. Maybe this would be his chance to teach Sans a bit of responsibility. After all, he had taking a liking to it first. If Papyrus played his cards right, then he could get Sans to look after the dog and maybe learn to be less lazy! After all a dog could be hard work. Since this dog was undead, it was the perfect balance for Sans' lifestyle. And maybe Papyrus could get the dog to try his spaghetti....

    Papyrus rubbed his skeletal chin. Now all that needed to happen was the dog needed a name. A name that was epic and would show the world that this dog was the dog of all dogs. A dog that was the best good boy that one could find. There was a perfect name out there, but he couldn't quite think of it.

    "TOBY HUH?" Papyrus pondered it over. "AN EXCELLENT IDEA SANS!! TOBY IT IS!"

    For a moment Papyrus paused, looking down at the dog. Slowly he shuffled forward and reached out a hand to pet the dog. "WHO'S A GOOD DOGGIE?"

    Looked like Papyrus was happy with all this in the end, he even liked the name Sans suggested. So now they had a pet, and one that wasn't a rock for once. As much as the main reason Sans wanted Toby to stick around, he knew he wasn't going to be there just to amuse them, they would have to take proper care of him, or rather, Papyrus would have to do it, most likely.

    "i don't think he's supposed to be here either, bro."
    Sans pointed out, which made him wonder where exactly Toby had come from, probably the woods, but that raised a few questions of its own.

    Then Papyrus crouched down and tried to pet the little dog that was still just sitting there on Sans' lap. It was a very simple, innocent gesture that didn't seem threatening in the slighest, especially with Papyrus making those typical baby (puppy?) talk to Toby, so naturally the pup was just going to enjoy some more pets.

    ... Except he then bit down on Papyrus' hand, and it wasn't just a playful bite either, he bit down hard.

    "oh." Was all the reaction that came from Sans at the moment.

    Well, at least Papyrus was wearing gloves.
