Epoch Glide

A Shameless Chrono Trigger Parody

Kirby: W-whoa!

The trio felt a blanket of darkness wrap itself around them. As before, the darkness did not truly feel dark. There was a feeling of movement tugging on their bodies as streaks of light flew over their heads.

Suddenly, the streaks of light disappeared, replaced with the familiar sight of Teyla's teleporters and the rest of Lucia Square.


Kirby: We.. we're back. We're back!
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla: Did you ever doubt me? The power of science is incredible.

She had the smuggest damn look on her face right now. Shame I don't have a smug mood avatar on here

Beatrix immediately glomped Teyla.

Beatrix: "Yay! We didn't end up in the wrong bodies! I so thought that was going to happen, and I really didn't want to be you!"

...

"No offense."
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla: H-hey, what's wrong with my body?

She seemed pretty peeved at that comment, not even noticing the insult to her device.

Kirby: Would it not feel uncomfortable to switch bodies? Your changed perception of height and the size of the world around you would feel unusual and unnerving?

He hesitated.

Kirby: Er.. That is not to say that I am well versed in such sciences.
Ralzma
Beatrix: "No! I'd just be nerdy and unatheletic!"
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla: Unathletic? Just because I have some healthy curves doesn't mean I'm unathletic!

Yeah!

Kirby giggled.

Kirby: You two seem like such close friends.

He then bowed.

Kirby: I wish I knew how to properly show my gratitude. Not only did you aid in my rescue, but you humored me and allowed me to accompany you for the festival.

He stood up straight and smiled.

Kirby: I must be returning home now. I do not think I can afford more time without raising suspicion at the castle.
Ralzma
Beatrix: "Are you sure? We could go to a few more shows or something if you like! If you don't get much of a chance to get out of the castle, I think the opportunity might be for the best! ...though, I mean, you probably do have a point."

Beatrix frowned. It had been interesting, at least, hadn't it? Fun even? Scary! Going back in time was something strange! Hopefully they didn't mess anything up too bad.

Beatrix: "Ah... well, hey, if you get out again, know you've got friends who'll show you around."

Kirby could not help but continue smiling. He felt an intense warmth from hearing that he had friends who would show him around.

Kirby: Thank you, truly. I hope that I do not have trouble finding you the next time I am in the area.

He was finding it difficult to convince himself to head home. The freedom was tempting, but he knew better.

Kirby: Take care, both of you.
Tyty
Can you not understand the words that are commin' outta my mouth?
Teyla: Hm.

She would've been in lighter spirits about the goodbye, but she's still in a bad mood about that comment.

Teyla: I'm gonna head off myself. Science never sleeps y'know. I'd like to try and figure out why the magical energy in the pendant interacted with my temporal displacement module to create a rift in time... Potentially I'd like to be able to recreate the effects, and open directed wormholes. Currently the T-manip can only open up holes that have already been created...

Though maybe our nobility should have an escort to the castle.
Ralzma
Beatrix could see the slowness in Kirby's movements. She even caught the slight little nod of Teyla's head at her. She nodded right back.

Beatrix: "Uh, yeah, you do that. I'm sure you'll make something really great out of that... thing. Whatever it is you said. Would you, you know, like a walk home Kirby? There's a few places we can go to on the way home so it doesn't feel like your entire trip was, you know. Wasted?"

Kirby: You.. you mean it?

He seemed slightly relieved.

Kirby: I mean.. is it not out of your way?
Ralzma
Beatrix: "I mean, a bit? But it's not serious, you know how it can be sometimes, right? Plus, the walk will do me good! After going back in time, I could use some time to immerse myself back in the present or whatever. I'm sure being around nature will be good for me!"

Beatrix moved on forward and grabbed Kirby's hand and started walking. In the wrong direction, of course.
