no-4 is a negative quip. The printed name is "say no". The true-name is "no-4".

It mentions Queen, fear.

The comment is "You look at Snow White, and think of the Queen. For a moment, the princess seems nearly as frightening as her stepmother[scary].".

The response is "No. Snow White is only a young girl, after all. And the Queen... well, you have seen her many times. You've heard her speak to her mirror. 'No,' you say, shivering. 'I don't think I could.'".

It quip-supplies Snow White.

It is negated by snow-white-possessed. [1]

It directly-follows how to deal alongside the queen and if you could kill the queen.

say xyzzy is a weak performative quip. [2]

It mentions xyzzy.

The comment is "You whisper an old magic word, pulled from some distant recess of your memory. The syllables are lost in the darkness, muffled by the trees.".

The response is "[one of]Snow White [for eye-gest]looks at you with an amused expression[or breath-gest]gives a little surprised huff[or walk-gest]turns when she hears it[end for][friendly]. Her red lips[set body-context to Snow White] quirk in the merest hint of a smile. For only a moment — then she looks serious as before[or]This time she merely [for eye-gest]rolls her eyes[or breath-gest]yawns[or walk-gest]strolls a little away from you and looks into the woods[end for][stopping].".

It quip-supplies Snow White.

It is repeatable.


[1]. These thoughts certainly don't make sense in light of knowing she is what she is; see no-36 for the alternative version.

[2]. This is a slight variation on the original submission, which had "xyzzy" as the name of both the quip and the subject it mentioned; this tweak lets it compile and will also accept SAY XYZZY as input alongside just XYZZY.
