The Princess and the Imp opened up a portal to Assembly and rushed through. Behind them, they dragged Santa (but not Santa) with Assembly General chasing close behind. Just as General Protection Fault was about to pass judgment on the 1337, just as the Assembly General was about to scoop up his bride in his heinous embrace, “Wait!” Shouted Princess Zyx, hoisting the Marriage Contract and pointing to the Android’s transcript,
“I move that this whole matter be declared a mistrial!”
Burblegax tugged at the hem of her skirt, “Princess, what are you doing? You’re not trained in combat Lawyering.”
Princess Zyx looked down at the imp, “If you’ve ever trusted me, trust me now.”
General Protection Fault smiled with teeth of the cruelest binary, “Thank the Code, Narrative bugs have proliferated until the entirety of Assembly is under threat. I warn you though princess, if you retreat to the ‘it was all an autistic child’s dream’ defense you will be subject to the stiffest existential penalties possible.”
Princess Zyx cursed under her breath, causing some cartoon birds that had flown up to attend her in her hour of need to faint. How had he known her plan? Well, now she’d have to go with plan B…
General Protection Fault forged a Gavel and Bench of nanomachines, banged with great enthusiasm.
“Order in the court! Order in the court!”
The android and the elf scrambled to get close to Princess Zyx, try and provide her with legal counsel. She held up a finger to shush them.
“Now,” Said General Protection Fault, “Who will you call as your first witness?”
