About

Steven After Not Surviving refers to a parody creepypasta which posits the theory that Sans from Undertale is the spirit of the title character from Steven Universe after Steven died of cancer, and that "Sans" is an acronym which stands for "Steven After Not Surviving." The theory has been widely parodied as have other theories that popular characters are actually Sans, such as Sans Is Ness and Patrick Star's Voice Is Sans.

Origin

On May 10th, 2016, DeviantArt user LouLouVZ[1] uploaded an image outlining the theory that Steven Universe becomes diagnosed with cancer and after dying, lived on as a skeleton. This inspired Toby Fox, creator of Undertale, to create Sans, which the video says is an acronym for the phrase "Steven After Not Surviving" (shown below).


STEVENUNIVERSE' S DEATH BY LOULOUVZ BUT ONE DAY STEVEN GOT CANCER. UNTIL ONE DAY HE DIED TURNING INTO A SKELETON, CALLED SANS STEVEN HAS A NORMAL AND HAPPY KID STEVEN: GIRLS LETS GO ON AN ADVENTURE PEARL: NO TURNING BACK! HHICH S TANDS FOR: STEVEN AFTER NOT SURVIVING. STEVEN: DON T HORRY GIRLS IM FINE IM COLD, THATS ALL...

On May 19th, 2016, Loulou VZ uploaded a video titled "Steven Universe is Sans from Undertale (Parody – Creepypasta)." The video tells the story in more detail. The end of the video features the creators joking about how Toby Fox and Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar think the theory is ridiculous. The video gained over 11 million views (shown below).



Spread

The theory soon began seeing mockery. On August 25th, 2016, Reddit user Blaster2488 posted a mockery of the post in /r/stevenuniversecirclejerk (shown below, left). On January 23rd, 2019, Tumblr user Chenhonks posted art of Sans holding Steven, gaining over 11,000 notes (shown below, right). The comic has been mocked in popular threads on /r/okbuddyretard,[2] /r/comedynecrophilia,[3] and Tumblr.[4]
