Gorgetale [Undertale + Gorge AU]

The story picks up right after Undertale's True Pacifist ending. Frisk escapes with their friends from the underground. Monsters finally roam free on the surface. Near the barrier is an island where they've decided to settle. Things were going great, everybody lived in peace. This is what every monster has been dreaming of when they were trapped underground. The Sun shined brightly onto the island. The monsters thought it looked beautiful, it's something they've never seen before. Every morning, they admired the sunlight as often as they could.

As the days pass, nobody even seemed to notice until it was too late. The sky was getting darker and darker. And then an enormous maw forms right at the heavens, this terrifies everyone. It was loud and growling, nobody knew what was happening. It's the Gnaw. Hungry, angry, and snarling. The Gnaw growls louder and louder, growing impatient at the confused monsters. It has waited long enough, it decides to punish them.

A plague is cast upon the island. The monsters stare in horror as some of their friends and families drop to the ground and beg for help as they slowly mutate into horribly disfigured scalies. Frisk found this to be unacceptable and went to civilise with the Gnaw. Attempting to reason with the Gnaw, Frisk pleads with it to reverse the effects of the plague and just become friends with everybody. The Gnaw ignores the pleas and nonchalantly turns Frisk into a scalie. Without even stopping to react, a mermified Frisk immediately jumps into the ocean, never to be seen again.

Frisk's friends are shocked at what had just happened. Everyone felt confused and frustrated. The monsters started looking for solutions. Toriel believes that the Gnaw wants sacrifices, but they didn't know what to give away. Alphys went to study the scalified monsters in hopes of restoring them back to their original form. Asgore was overcome by anger at what the Gnaw did to his people, he wanted justice for them and declares war. He organised his best soldiers, including Undyne, to attack with their magic powers. Asgore and his army gathered underneath the Gnaw and started throwing spears, fire attacks, and such in an attempt to vanquish it. This proves to be futile as it only served to further anger the beast.

As a punishment, the Gnaw scalifies all of the soldiers plus some other innocent monsters. Undyne and Alphys undergo the scalification process, but they remain unaltered since they're already scalies. Asgore almost turns into a scalie, but fortunately, due to Alphys's prior research on the scalies, she was able to significantly delay the process, although not completely halt it. Still, Asgore knows the inevitable. Still not satisfied, the Gnaw drops a few nukes on the island, destroying most homes and leaving only some living survivors. The monsters were devastated. Toriel, after witnessing the attack's failure, decides on a more peaceful approach.

Toriel runs up to her kitchen and started cooking up her best recipe, butterscotch-cinnamon pie. Toriel offers the pie and the Gnaw immediately beams it up to its maw. Everybody watches in delight as the pies travels up the beam and gets devoured. The Gnaw is so pleased that it rewards the monsters immensely, so it brings Flowey to the island. Flowey is perplexed as he looks around, seeing everyone staring at him. Then the Gnaw demonstrates its power by returning Flowey back into his original form, as Asriel. The monsters rejoice with renewed hope, they saw a miracle happen right in front of them. Asriel is tremendously ecstatic about retaining his real form, he no longer has to be a soulless flower anymore.

It has been realised that what the Gnaw wants is food, so Toriel cooks up all kinds of pies to sate its hunger. Pie after pie, the Gnaw gets spoiled, eventually losing interest in pies and started to develop different cravings. Toriel notices that the Gnaw has been gradually getting less satisfied, and so she started needing to cook various other kinds of recipes. She knew she couldn't do this anymore, even with the help of the remaining monsters, as the Gnaw gets progressively even more gluttonous and picky. The island runs low on resources, limiting her options.

Out of nowhere, a group of three humans suddenly pop into the island. And this is where we, the Don't Starve Together community, get involved to help the monsters!

We've developed this Undertale mod for Gorge to allow everyone to participate in this magnificent AU:

It's a nice story... but I think Undertale and DST are thematically very different. Maybe it's better that we don't try to blend them. But who am I to say. let undertale die.

The fact that I read all of this actually hurts me, and I can’t believe this is a thing. 10/10 for dedication.

Also it’s nice to know that the Gnaw has weapons of mass destruction in the event that something goes wrong for it.

I haven't read it, and won't, but it _did_ occur to me that both Undertale and the Gorge have a character you could easily call "Goat-Mom".  In fact, I actually called her that once in game chat, and then went "WAITaminute..." at myself.  Fortunately nobody caught it (or didn't SAY they did).  Me?  I like it.  I think it's a good game.  I don't think it's CANCER! at all.  However, I stop there, at just the game itself.  The fan stuff I mostly stay away from, except for maybe Random Encounters' song about it.  Undertale is one of those things where the extreme fan reactions can chase away a person from the actual thing...when the actual thing itself is VERY DIFFERENT and the person might've liked it!  So...

...other than that, nah.  It doesn't really work.

(and does the Gnaw _need_ weapons of mass destruction?  It's a giant multi-layered MOUTH in the SKY!)

I tried to help with this but John bullied me into the ground until I turned into sand, just like the irradiated ground where the Gnaw sent the nukes

So uh, can you please tell me why you're replying like... at all? You keep doing this like every time John posts, and this isn't a very good thing to do. It makes you look, and I apologize to the moderators that still have to moderate my posts, quite terrible frankly and more immature than you make out John himself to be.

Where is sans in this?

I'm sorry, but I disrespect you as a person to not include Sans..

 

Sand replaces Sammy in the Gorge

Sans and Papyrus were distressed by losing Frisk to the Gnaw. They also had their hopes restored when Asriel returned, and decided to help Toriel cook food for the Gnaw. Papyrus once tried to feed spaghetti to the Gnaw, but it didn't like his spaghetti so he was also punished with scalification. Fortunately, Papyrus is just made of bones so nothing happened to him.

When the three gatekeepers arrived to the Gorge, Papyrus is in the sugarwood park. He accidentally locked himself in there which is why you need a key to get in. Sans has a spare key, but he doesn't immediately give it to you because he doesn't trust you yet to let you get near his brother.

Thanks for your input in this AU

To say something about the Gorge and Undertale being combined, duh.

Also have you SEEN some of John's earlier posts?  There's a reason I blocked him.  He tends to be very condescending and "I'm better than you", just plain mean-spirited, or the elitist type of player who keeps telling us "YOU'RE HAVING FUN WRONG!"

Ain't got time for that.
