Storyshift is an alternate universe created by Voltra.
It is a role-swap AU, unique for being one of the first to not swap personalities. Instead, it has the characters retain their canon personalities, while still being in a new role. It also started the popular "pair shift," where characters swap in pairs based on their relations in Undertale.
The current iteration of the AU is a reboot from an earlier iteration, now known as Storyshift (Preboot). While some elements of preboot have been recycled for the reboot, preboot itself is considered non-canon.
