Chapter 15: Nice cream, skele-puns, puzzles, oh my!

When Celestia walked to the next area, she found a depressed monster sitting on a snow pile with his head hanging low, mumbling something like "I don't understand why these aren't selling... it's the perfect weather for something cold..."

Celestia felt sorry for the monster and came up to him, "Excuse me, are you selling something?" She asked kindly.

The monster looked up at her and gasped happily "A CUSTOMER!!! Hello! Would you like some nice cream? The frozen treat that warms your heart! Now just 15G!"

Celestia looked in her satchel, she had about 125G. "Hmm... Can I have 3 nice creams please?" she asked, taking out 45G.

"Here you go! Have a super-duper-day"

-Celestia got some nice cream-

Celestia put two of the nice creams in her satchel, then took a bite of the third. The filly's eyes shrunk, it didn't taste very good, it tasted wrong... But seeing the monster so happy she bought it. Filled her with Determination to eat the whole thing. She felt better after she ate the treat, she trotted away from the nice cream monster, filled with Determination, and disgust.

Celestia trotted until she saw some sort of golf puzzle, and Sans next to the puzzle. He was selling some 'fried snow' for 5G, then changed it to 50G. So the filly declined, Sans said that she was right and the price still wasn't high enough. She walked to the puzzle and quickly solved it, she teleported the big snow ball into a hole and a black flag came up. It had a note on it ' Black-You're a dirty cheater...but here's 1G'
Celestia felt guilty, but took it anyway and went to the next area.


Papyrus and Sans were there, they appeared to be waiting for her. Papyrus was the first to speak up, "PONY!!! I HOPE YOU'RE READY FOR... " Papyrus looked around the area. "SANS!! WHERE'S THE PUZZLE!?!"

"it's on the ground. trust me, there's no way she can get past it" Sans reassured his brother.

The alicorn looked at the piece of paper on the ground, she picked it up to find it was a junior jumble. She put it down and walked past it "What was the point of that?" She asked.

Papyrus was steaming at his brother, "SANS!!! THAT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING!!"

"whoops. i knew i should've use today's crossword instead"

"WHAT!? CROSSWORD!? I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU JUST SAID THAT!! IN MY OPINION... JUINOR JUMBLE IS EASILY THE HARDEST!"

"what? really dude? that easy-peasy word scramble? that's for baby bones."

"UN. BELIEVABLE... PONY!!! SOLVE THIS DISPUTE!" Papyrus told the alicorn, who was eating popcorn from out nowhere, listening to their argument in delight.

Celestia gulped the treat down and put the rest in her satchel, "Me?" She raised a brow.

"YES YOU! WHO ELSE WOULD I BE TALKING TO?!"

"Oh" The pony thought a bit, "Well, tibia honest, I think crosswords are harder" The pony joked, with the most smug grin on her face.

Sans snickered while Papyrus groaned "YOU TWO ARE WEIRD! CROSSWORDS ARE EASY. IT'S THE SAME SOLUTION EVERY TIME. I JUST PUT THE LETTER 'Z' IN ALL THE BOXES... BECAUSE EVERY TIME I LOOK AT A CROSSWORD... ALL I CAN DO IS SNORE!!! NYEH HEH HEH HEH!! Papyrus yelled, then he ran away.

Celestia just stood there. "I said that crossword was the hardest, I didn't say it was the funnest" she said to no one in particular.

"...papyrus...finds difficultly in interesting places. yesterday he got stumped trying to 'solve' the horoscope. nice pun by the way, that's one of my favourite types of skele-puns" Sans winked.

Celestia eyes twinkled "Yes!" She walked happily to the next area.


There was a plate of spaghetti on a table, a note next to the table, an unplugged microwave, and a little mouse hole. 'This looks like the start of a bad joke' the pony pondered. She life's up the note to see what it said.

PONY!!! PLEASE ENJOY THIS SPAGHETTI.
(LITTLE DO YOU KNOW, THAT THIS SPAGHETTI IS A TRAP...
DESIGNED TO ENTICE YOU!!!
YOU'LL BE SO BUSY EATING IT...
THAT YOU WON'T REALISE THAT YOU AREN'T PROGRESSING!!
THOROUGHLY JAPED AGAIN BY THE GREAT PAPYRUS!!)

NYEH HEH HEH!

-PAPYRUS-

Celestia looked at the spaghetti, it was frozen solid, even though she could heat it up with a fire spell, she wasn't really fond of spaghetti that's been outside for who-knows-long. 'I'll just say I wanted to eat it with him' Celestia trotted to the next area.

Celestia encountered some more monsters while solving some more puzzles luckily the monsters were kind enough to spare the pony, and Celestia used her knowledge of the area and the clues to figure out the puzzles, with Sans and Papyrus occasionally helping...well, mostly Papyrus, Sans just jokes around most of the time.


Celestia encountered the skeleton brothers again, but they had something different this time, it looked like a dance floor, but the colour being sucked out. "HEY! IT'S THE PONY! YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THIS PUZZLE! IT WAS MADE BY THE GREAT DR. ALPHYS" Papyrus began to explain, "YOU SEE THESE TILES!?" Celestia nodded "ONCE I FLIP THIS SWITCH... THEY WILL BEGIN TO CHANGE COLOUR. EACH COLOUR HAS A DIFFERENT FUNTION..." Papyrus explained what colours do and how they would counters each other. Celestia nodded when Papyrus was explaining, but in reality, she had no idea what does what, except that pink tiles do nothing. "HOW WAS THAT!? UNDERSTAND???"

The alicorn tensed up a bit "uhhh..... Yeah....of course...." She said with a forced smile.

Papyrus didn't seem to notice she was lying. "GREAT!!! THEN THERE'S ONE LAST THING... THIS PUZZLE... IS ENTIRELY RANDOM!!!!! WHEN I PULL THIS SWITCH, IT WILL BEGIN TO MAKE A PUZZLE, THAT HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE! NOT EVEN I KNOW THE SOLUTION! NYEH HEH HEH! GET READY..." Papyrus flipped the switch, the tiles began to change colour, they flickered faster and faster until......

There was a straight path forward...

Everyone was in silence for a while.....

"UUUUGGGGHHHHHH" The tall skeleton spinned in circles to the next area.

Celestia walked straight through."That was, anti-climactic, he looks pretty sad"

"actually, you know that spaghetti from earlier..." Sans asked, bringing up a whole new topic. "it wasn't to bad for my brother. since he started cooking lessons, he's been improving a lot. i bet if he keeps it up maybe next year he'll make something good"

Celestial smiled "Well, I'm actually a pretty good chef if I do say so myself. I've been taught all I know" She said smugly

"really? by who?"

Celestia tensed up, her smug grin was replaced by a sad smile. "Never mind, I should continue, see ya Sans"

Celestia trotted to the next area.
