Basically, there's three extra panels from the script, to be in the middle of the page. The first panel will feature confidence (with unsound effects to go along with the first two which I'll put some in), the second a change in expression (but otherwise silent), the third will feature the dialog that was meant for the original second panel, and the last two panels at the bottom will remain as I originally envisioned them.
Not a very neat solution; it's rather an ugly one in fact. But since I forgot what my ORIGINAL original elegant design (which had natural timing) was, this will have to do.
Though mainly today, I kinda just want to play Chrono Trigger. (Even though I'm primarily farming, trying to get enough money to buy the outrageously-expensive equipment that you're not supposed to actually buy yet, all the while for the focus of trying to beat the current 20-29 Spekkio who currently is two-shotting Marle before she can cast a single spell. Basically, there's a need to get equipment while not leveling up too much.)
