✳ The new history teacher was terrifying!
∗ The Ebottown population had practically tripled over the summer.
∗ Monsters outnumbered humans two-to-one, so the diversity of the school's new staff was little surprise.
✳ The dagger-fanged, red-ponytailed fish pirate standing atop her desk in Annex 5 was a big surprise!
UNDYNE: HUMANS OF EARTH!
UNDYNE: *snort* *tee-hee* (I always wanted to say that!)
UNDYNE: I am Undyne! Your martial-arts coach!
∗ She pointed a spear at the whiteboard.
∗ The whiteboard said "Mrs. UNDYNE, YOUR MARTIAL ARTS COACH!"
✳ The students started to wonder if they were in the wrong room?
∗ A girl in the second row spoke up.
MIRIA: Ms. Undyne? I thought this was History class...
✳ Then the teacher threw the spear at her desk!
UNDYNE: I am also your History teacher!
∗ She materialized a new spear with her magic, to much ooing and awwing from the class.
∗ She then pointed it as the whiteboard, where the class now noticed a smaller line of text.
∗ "AND YOUR HISTORY TEACHER"
UNDYNE: Because there's a rule that sport coaches have to be teachers!!!
✳ Then she jumped off her desk and...
∗ Suplexed it. Just because she could.
UNDYNE: But history can be awesome! I know this old guy, Gerson, who has the most amazing war stories!
UNDYNE: ...they usually. end. with. humans. killing. monsters.
∗ The humans in the class started shivering.
✳ The monsters too!
UNDYNE: But you won't be learning that lame stuff today!
UNDYNE: This semester I'm supposed to teach you about the Revolutionary War!
UNDYNE: When Benjamin Franklin built a giant robot to take on the British Armada and the Hessian Clan!
∗ This was news to a boy sitting in the back.
ISAAC: They didn't have giant robots back then!
UNDYNE: Are you challenging me?
✳ The teacher smiled in a very toothy way.
∗ The boy was sorely tempted to make a dash for the door, but something kept him rooted in one place.
UNDYNE: Because A TRUE SCHOLAR ISN'T AFRAID TO CHALLENGE ANYBODY!
UNDYNE: Now ENGUARDE! Hit me with the COLD HARD FACTS OF JUSTICE!!!
∗ Undyne allowed Isaac to make the first move.
ISAAC: W-well, I c-can't cite my sources when I'm stuck like this, b-but...
ISAAC: I always heard that Tesla invented the first robots- of any kind.
ISAAC: A-and even then his secrets were lost to history!
ISAAC: So if he was born after the Revolutionary War...
✳ She made that smile again...
UNDYNE: Excellent argument! You have until class tomorrow to find citations.
UNDYNE: If you're right, you get a billion points of extra credit!
UNDYNE: If you're wrong... well, taking your SOUL would be in bad form, so I'll just make you admit it to the class.
UNDYNE: Now, if you'll all turn to page 17...
∗ The new history teacher was awesome.
