A Shameless Chrono Trigger Parody

Girl: In any case, don't worry about it!

She nodded her head, making a mental note to shift saving the queen to being a primary mission.

Girl: I'm sure one of you here is all about saving the queen for honor or whatever moral reason, and that's fine. And if you pretend like that's your reason as well, that's fine, too. What matters is that we're working towards the same goal.
Ralzma
Beatrix: "By saving the queen I'm saving my friend! That's the important thing here!"

Beatrix continued to fume, steam practically coming from her ears.

Girl: Oho.

She held a hand up to her mouth.

Girl: A lot more honest than I expected you to be.
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla was just kinda remaining silent.

This was faaar too amusing for her to butt in.
Ralzma
Beatrix: "Because I'm not a liar! Or a manipulative brat!"

The girl continued to hold her hand up to her mouth.

Girl: But you're trying to save the queen so you can save your friend. That's pretty kind of you, but it's selfish. Unless you misspoke. Stress can do that.
Ralzma
Beatrix: "How is it selfish! I just met him today!"

Girl: Would you have come here if you didn't meet that person?
Ralzma
Beatrix: "Nope! But the queen wouldn't be in danger if I hadn't met Kirb!"
Kirbynite
The Jarl of Neo Grape Gardens




Girl: Uh.. What?
Ralzma
Beatrix: "Just, we wouldn't be here if I didn't essentially drag Kirb here, and he wouldn't be about to get executed for impersonating the queen if things hadn't gone on."

She paused. This sounded a bit ridiculous.

"It's her fault!"

She (dramatically) pointed at Teyla.
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla: I said no enchanted, or possibly otherworldy artifacts in my machine, and I meant it. It is hardly my fault.

She crossed her arms.

The short girl simply remained quiet to hear any further responses.

Torte had been gone for some time now, completely ignoring the conversation with the single-mindedness of a terrapin on a mission to save a missing member of his country's royalty. He strode confidently in the direction that the short girl had pointed him and prepared for a fight.
Ralzma
Beatrix finally noticed Torte had moved on and she squeaked before running through the halls after him.

Girl: Geeze. You guys are trying emphasize on this walking through the hallway thing. It's like you weren't committed to it just a couple of posts ago.

There was loud hissing coming from down the hallway.

Girl: Oh, right. These guys.

Two large snake creatures wearing bow ties began moving towards them, followed by two nagas.

Naga: Ssstop them!
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla: Sorry ladies, can't stop to have fun...

There was a whining noise as her devices started up, and she drew her gun.

Teyla: Maybe some other time, but we're on a mission.

Teyla fired a shot at one of the nagas.
Grey

Torte purposefully strode toward the other naga, reared his head back, and slammed his forehead into its nose.

Much like earlier, the naga that was targeted by Teyla's firearm was caught off guard by the speed of the projectile and immediately crumpled onto the floor.

Naga: Wh-what?! Sso fasst!

The naga and bow tied vipers winced in response to Teyla's attack. The naga Torte had targeted was unprepared for the headbutt. She reeled backwards in pain, holding her nose and shrieking.

Naga: Aaaaaaaaooooooooww!

The two vipers were still in a state of shock.
Ralzma
Beatrix: "Why so many snakes?"

She wrinkled her nose but took out her kunai and charged the two vipers before flipping right as she reached them and trying to split them in half in a far too dramatic attack.
