Apparently Tails was showing off his new homemade teleporter device to the technologically perplexed bard one afternoon...
"See?" grinned Tails proudly, fidgeting with various dials and buttons. "I can set it to take us anywhere we like. Even swap places!"
"But... but isn't this dangerous?" puzzled Valdis, rubbing his arm apprehensively. "I mean, what if we get fused? Or transported into solid rock or something?"
"Pfff!" guffawed the twin-tailed inventor, firing up his device. "Don't be silly. You can't even add fractions, much less master quantum physics. We'll be fine, leave this to me. Now let's TRY it!"
As the smell of static and ozone lifted, Tails blinked, then looked down and gasped. "Wha-- what happened!?!"
"Oh, cool!" grinned Valids, adjusting his new goggles. "Guess it transports bodies but not clothes, huh? I look great!"
"No, you look ridiculous. Now take those off right n--WHOAAA!!" Wobbling in the bard's big, clunky boots, Tails pitched backwards on his rump as the other fox giggled. "Okay. MAYbe a few tweaks are in order."
