‘Well another year and a brand new start’ Mary Margaret thought as she walked down the main street in Storybrooke ‘There are so many new and familiar faces. I didn’t know so many people… and animals lived in The Enchanted Forest’

“Mary Margaret” Regina smiled breaking her train of thought

“Oh hello Regina” Mary Margaret smiled brightly “I can’t thank you enough for bringing the rest of The Enchanted Forest over”

“Well it was my pleasure” Regina smiled “I can’t thank you enough for trusting me to be mayor again” 

“Well it’s a brand new start, Storybrooke is officially a town and now that everyone has assumed a new name that differs from whom they were, it actually feels like a whole new chance to live in peace with one another”

“God your optimism is annoying Mary Margaret.” Regina sighed “But it’s lovely to have you as my friend”

“It’s lovely to have the woman who saved my life back” Mary Margaret smiled hugging Regina

“Hey Mary” Dorothy Dandridge smiled brightly as she approached the two women

“Dorothy have you met Regina?” 

“No, it’s lovely to meet you Mayor Mills” Dorothy smiled shaking Regina’s hand

“Ah Dorothy Gale I’ve heard many marvellous things about how you saved the Land of Oz from the witch” Regina smiled

“Well it’s nice to be back in the real world” Dorothy smiled widely “It’s vastly changed since I was last here. But I’ll get used to it”

“Well it was lovely to meet you Miss Gale”

“Dandridge, my last name is now Dandridge”

“Oh I’m sorry, I keep forgetting people have changed their names… Anyway it was lovely to meet you but I must be off. I have things to attend to” Regina smiled warmly at the two women before she walked away

“Well she seems nice” Dorothy

“Ha! You should’ve seen her couple of years back!” Mary Margaret laughed

“She can’t have been THAT bad” Dorothy smiled as they walked into Granny’s diner

“Ah Ross” Mary Margaret smiled as she sat down next to him

“Oh hello ladies” Ross Gold smiled at the pair “How’s things?”

“Good thanks, how’s the potion coming along?” Mary Margaret smiled

“It’s done!” Ross smiled “I tried it out on Killian. He took the potion and then crossed the town line and he remembered everything!” 

“Awesome! So we can finally start that glee club up!?” Dorothy smiled

“If you get permission for it from Principal Sugars, I don’t see why I can’t make a potion for you and your club ladies” Ross smiled

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Why can’t we though?” Dorothy moaned

“Mainly because we don’t have a budget” Zara raised her eyebrow frustrated 

“I think I can be of assistance here” Regina smirked as she walked in

“Look I know you’re mayor but it doesn’t mean you can just come barging into my office when it pleases you Mayor Mills” Zara snapped

“I’m giving you a hand here Ms Sugars” Regina said coldly

“Why are you here anyway?” Zara sighed

“Mary Margaret ad Dorothy told me about their glee club plan and I knew that you would quite quickly tell them there was no budget. So I thought I’d come down and tell you about the performing arts grant that the United State Government has opened up recently”

“Go on” Zara said bored

“Well if a glee club can reach a minimum of twenty students they get fully funded by the government and the school doesn’t have to pay a penny after that twentieth member joins” Regina smirked

“Wait so if I fund them”

“You get fully reimbursed for any money you put into them”

“Well ladies I think you now have a glee club!” Zara said excitedly

“Thank you so much Zara!” Mary Margaret smiled as she hugged Regina

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Danny waited outside Ms Sugars’ office worriedly

“Tomlinson!” Zara shouted. Danny leapt out of the chair and into the office

“Yes Ms Sugars?” Danny said worriedly

“Why are you so worried Mr Tomlinson? You’re not in any sort of trouble”

“I’m not?” Danny asked relaxing

“Not at all.” Zara smiled “You remember that “buddy program” you signed up for?”

“The one for extra credit?” Danny smiled weakly

“Yes, that one. Anyway this is Eric, he’s new here” Zara said gesturing to a boy sitting in one of the two chairs in front of him

“Hello” Eric smiled at Danny, Danny was shocked at how handsome this boy was

“Hey there” Danny smiled

“Anyway….” Zara sighed “I want you to show him round”

“Awesome, thank you Ms Sugars’” Danny smiled

“No problem, now if you don’t mind I have a few calls to make so have a lovely day boys” Zara grinned. The two boys left her office and stood in the hallway

“So what’s your first class?” Danny asked

“Math” Eric sighed

“Awesome! You’re in the same class as me. You’re gonna love Mr Cloak”

“Cloak? That’s an unusual name…” Eric trailed off

“Well he was Robin Hood back in The Enchanted Forest” Danny said as they walked down the corridor

“Makes sense then”

“If you don’t mind who were you?”

“I WAS Prince Eric now it’s just Eric”

“Ah! You must be the Eric that mermaid keeps babbling on about”

“Mermaid? OH Ariel!”

“Yeah, she keeps going on about you’re her true love or something”

“Really? Huh… Anyway who were you?”

“Odile” Danny said plainly

“The Black Swan right?”

“Yeah… Anyway here we are” Danny said

“And you’re late again Tomlinson” Robert said as he walked in

“Sorry Mr Cloak I was showing the newbie around” Danny said walking off to his seat next to Rachel

“Damn he’s cute” Rachel whispered to Danny

“Hands off sister, he’s mine” Danny whispered back sassily and the pair chuckled

“Alright class this is Eric Goldberg, he’s new let’s try to make him feel welcome. If you take the empty seat next to Mr Wilde for now.” Robert smiled at Eric, Eric made his way down to Kyler

“Who were you and what’s your “fairytale”?” Kyler sighed lazily as Eric sat down

“Fairytale?” Eric repeated confused

“Yeah in this world the humans documented our stories and made them fairytales”

“Oh well… I don’t know about fairytale but I am… was Prince Eric.”

“OH! You’re the one from that mermaid book” Kyler smiled

“Yes… The same one as Ariel”

“Mr Goldberg. I know you’re new to this whole learning thing but it helps if you listen to me whilst I talk”

“Wow cute and dumb. Just you’re type” Rachel laughed

“Oh quiet Punzy” Danny glared

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Hey ladies” Rachel smiled as she joined the rest of The Princess Collection in the hallways by Ashley’s locker

“Well, well, well if it isn’t the Porcelain Dolls” Danny smirked as he walked by

“You best hold your tongue Dan or I’ll have to tell every one about your new man candy” Rachel smirked

“What man candy Rach?” Tiana said shocked

“A new sophomore, named Eric” Rachel smiled knowingly

“Oh is that all” Ashley waved Rachel off “I hoped you would’ve mentioned a senior”

“I thought you were still dating that Sean Herman guy” Kiara raised her eyebrow

“Hush you! May I remind you you’re only an honorary princess?”

“Eh… I really couldn’t care less” Kiara shrugged

“Anyway, even though I’m on a diet doesn’t mean I can’t drool over the menu… If you know what I mean” Ashley smirked. The others simply rolled their eyes in response

“Wait… What was his name again?” Anna asked

“Eric” Briar replied disinterested

“Oh. My. God! That’s MY prince!” Anna said jumping up and down

“Calm down Fish Breath” Isabelle sighed, “You’re giving me a headache”

“Anyway how do you know he’s your prince?” Tiana looked at her confused

“I could feel it…”

“In my heart, my true love has finally arrived in Storybrooke” The group finished with her

“You say that EVERY day. What makes you think today’s any different?” Briar said lazily

“Cause… Um… I… I can just feel that it’s different from the other times”

“Sure…” Briar sighed “And whilst you stay in The Enchanted Forest I’m going to head to English class”

“I have that next as well wait up” Isabelle called as she, Kiara and Tiana walked off

“I have to go, science class calls” Ashley smiled awkwardly as she and the others left Danny alone with Anna

“So what’s he like!?” Anna grinned almost crazily

“I’d love to chat but I have art class so… Bye” Danny said awkwardly before speeding off down the hall. Anna simply watched as he ran off, shrugged her shoulders and skipped off to gym class

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Eric sat in art class with Danny’s usual group, Chandler Little, Henley Darling, Liam Calder, Martin Green, Michael Friend and Tina Kerry.

“Did you guys hear about the new glee club?” Henley smiled brightly

“Yeah, and it’s an awful idea from what I’ve heard about show choir, it’s social suicide” Danny sighed

“Coming from the ex-ballerina” Martin smirked

“Shut it Street Rat” Danny glared

“No need to get snippy Your Honkness” Martin chuckled

“Guys come on behave yourselves” Tina sighed

“I think glee club is a great idea” Michael grinned

“That’s cause you’re impressionable” Danny smirked

“Oh please shut up Danny. You seem to be the only one against it” Chandler snapped

“I’m sorry Little, did I ruffle your feathers?” Danny laughed whilst Chandler just sat there glaring at him

“Wow and you guys work as a team?” Eric asked cautiously

“Majority of the time” Liam grinned his signature grin

“Anyway back to glee club” Henley smiled “I think we should join”

“No.” Danny said quickly

“I’m with Danny” Liam sighed

“I think I’m with Henley on this one” Michael smiled

“Me too” Chandler and Martin said simultaneously

“I don’t think so…” Tina sighed

“I think it could be fun” Eric smiled

“Well it’s settled.” Henley smiled “Those interested will sign up after class”

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Wow newbie” Danny smirked

“What?” Eric looked at Danny confused

“You had some real guts to go against me in there”

“Why? Are you top dog or something?”

“Potentially” Danny smiled “Anyway now for the best part of the tour of hell. Here I drew this for you in art” Danny smiled handing Eric a piece of paper

“What’s this?”

“It’s a map of the school… AND it’s social standings”

“Okay then…”

“So here’s where the fun begins” Danny smiled as he took Eric around the cafeteria “That is The Princess Collection, they were all princess back in The Forest” he shrugged moving along to the jocks “That is the jocks table” He said pointing at the table as Herk made stupid faces into his spoon “The goon pulling faces is Herk, avoid him at all costs.”

“Why?”

“He’s not only lacking in the upstairs departments… He’s well quite a huge bully same with his friend Percy… Snobby, arrogant little gah!” Danny mumbled

“So the next table?” 

“Right that is Amelia, she may be alone right now but you wait The Slave Driver will appear at any moment to give the poor thing her orders”

“Slave Driver?”

“Oh her older sister Audrey again avoid at all costs”

“And why would he want to do that Daniel?” A voice came from behind him

“Speak of The Devil” Danny said whirling around to be face to face with Audrey “How are you Satan?”

“I’m just fine thanks Daniel, now here’s the deal either you move your fat, ungraceful ass or I pluck every hair from your head like feathers” Audrey grinned

“Oh my! Decisions, decisions.”

“Look Pond Breath I’m in no mood for your games I have business to attend to now move” she said shoving out the way

“Hey Danny” Annie smiled brightly as she walked behind Audrey

“Hey Annie” He smiled back and turned back to face Eric “Well now that you’ve met Satan and her pet Bobblehead shall we continue our tour?”

“We shall” Eric smiled as he and Danny walked through the cafeteria

“And now for a complete change from the worst people you'll ever meet, to the best. This is where my group sits” danny smiled taking his seat

“Your group?” Eric asked

“The misfits of school society and total outcasts, may as well take a seat Danny smiled patting the bench next to him, Eric did as he was told and sat down next to Danny “Ah, and here they come now. Hey guys come meet the fresh meat!”

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“What is this?” Audrey shrieked as she and Annie approached Amelia at their usual lunch table throwing the glee club sign up sheet with ten different names underneath Amelia’s nose

“It’s a sign up sheet for glee club” Amelia replied plainly

“Oh I can see that I can also see a bunch of loser’s names… THEN your’s! Explain yourself!” 

“Well I saw the sheet and thought ‘huh why not? It’ll give me something to do instead of following Audrey round all the time’” Amelia smiled sarcastically and went back to her lunch

“You what?” Audrey said unimpressed as Annie took her seat cautiously “Don’t sit down Annie! We’re not staying with this loser!” Audrey snapped

“Yes Audrey” Annie stood up quickly then glared at Amelia

“You have a choice here my darling sister” Audrey said narrowed her eyes “Either don’t turn up to those auditions or be branded a complete loser for the rest of your high school life”

“She’s right you know” Annie smiled evilly

“You know what, I’m sorry… Sorry that you’re a complete cow, sorry I’ve been taking your crap for too long and I’m utterly sorry that my new social choice is going to make you lose a follower, Master” Amelia said sarcastically as she turned and walked away from the pair

“You’ll pay for this Amelia! You’ll definitely pay!” Audrey yelled

“Oh will I? I guess I’ll just have to thank you in advance” she said as she hopped up onto the table “Yo, this one right here is for all the drop-out-of-schoolers. The future cougars. The Mary Jane abusers. The ones that chose to be losers, for all the Misfit Kids and total outcasts MKTO. This one's for you role models.” She yelled as the other kids looked at her in shock Henley instantly rose from her seat and began to sing with Amelia

“We are the ones, the ones you left behind. Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives. Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules. Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.” The pair sang

“Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.” Briar sang as she got up onto the table she was sitting at

“Thank you for the world you broke. Like yolk and it ain't no joke. So cold and there ain't no coat. Just me, my friends, my folks.” Martin rapped as the cafeteria started to clap along

“And we gonna do what we like. So raise that bird up high” Isabelle rapped as Briar helped her up onto the table “And when they ask you why. Just stand there laugh and smile.”

“We are the ones, the ones you left behind.” The group sang as Kyler and Michael joined in “Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives. Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules. Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.”

“Na na na na” Kyler and Michael sang “Na na na na na na. Na na na na. Na na na na na na.”

“Thank you” Rachel sang as she danced through the aisles of the cafeteria “Thank you for the times you said, "Don't make a sound." Thanks for the ropes you used to hold us down. Cause when I break through I'ma use them to reach the clouds. We ain't comin' down.”

“Come on.” Eric yelled underneath her singing

“We ain't comin' down” Rachel sang again

“Hey!” Eric yelled before he rapped “Look, ma, I finally made it. This world is too damn jaded. My life is just like Vegas, go big, go home get faded.”

“Been a problem since '92. Can't shut me down curfew” Chandler rapped “And them girls I'll take a few. Do what I wanna do.”

“We are the ones, the ones you left behind. Don't tell us how, don't tell us how to live our lives.” All ten sang as they stood on tables “Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules. Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.”

“Na na na na” The boys sang 

“Hey” Henley said

“Na na na na na na” The boys continued “Na na na na. Na na na na na na”

“Thank you” Kyler sang

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Henley, Kyler and Michael sang “From head to toe from the soul you ripped apart. I say, "Thank you." I say, "Thank you." Yeah, yeah”

'“We are the ones, the ones you left behind.”' The whole group sang “Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives. Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules. Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose. We are the ones, the ones you left behind. Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives. Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules. Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.”

“Thank you” Chandler sang

“Na na na na” The group chanted 

“Hey” Eric yelled

“Na na na na na na. Na na na na. Na na na na na na”

“Thank you” Martin sang

“Yo if you don't like what they tell you to do, don't do it.” Amelia yelled to the crowd “If you don't want to be who they want you to be, screw it. It's your world, it's your life and they ruined it. Role models, tune in, turn up, drop out” The song finished and the crowd roared with applause and the ten smiled at each other

“You ten! In my office! NOW!” Zara yelled

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“And this is exactly why I didn’t want to introduce a glee club to this environment!” Zara snapped at the twelve people in her office

“Ms Sugars, this is all my fault the others all joined in and Ms Blanchard and Miss Dandridge had nothing to do with it” Amelia said calmly

“Hmm…” Zara paused “I should disband this club immediately”

“Please don’t Ms Sugars!” Henley begged

“Yeah, this may be exactly what the school needs” Martin pleaded

“And my only chance to fit in!” Kyler sighed

“Well… Let’s put it this way ladies and gentlemen I have a 3 strike system” Zara said sternly “This is your first strike another couple of stunts like that and consider glee club done!”

“Fair enough” Eric sighed

“Do we have an agreement?” Zara asked

“Yes Ms Sugars” All ten students sighed

“Wonderful!” Zara smiled “Now you may leave. Except you two.” She pointed at Dorothy and Mary Margaret, the kids all filed out of the office and wandered back to the cafeteria

“Well… That was an eventful lunch” Zara smiled

“We’re really sorry about it Zara. It won’t happen again!” Mary Margaret said

“It best not, I’m counting on you two to show that Old Sea Dog how a glee club’s run”

“Wait what?” Mary Margaret looked at Zara confused

“Oh Killian told me that he wanted to open another glee club” Zara said nonchalantly

“AND YOU LET HIM!?” Dorothy exclaimed in shock

“Dotty please control yourself” Zara sighed, “Yes I decided that there would be enough students to have two, I mean come on ladies we have more than forty students”

“You’re right Zara” Mary Margaret said quickly, shooting a look at Dorothy who was about to lose it. “It’ll be nice to have some competition in our own backyard”

“Indeed it will be, now if you’ll excuse me I am finally gonna eat my lunch” Zara smiled at the two ladies as they left

“We’ve got to put a stop to this!” Mary Margaret said

“Wow! You can definitely read my thoughts” Dorothy smiled as she laced her arm through Mary Margaret’s

______________________________________________________________________________________________-

“Leave this to me Killian has a wee thing for me” Dorothy winked as she stormed through Killian’s office door “What the hell do you think you’re playing at Hook!?”

“Wow… How clever and seductive Gale” Mary Margaret sighed from the hallway

“Well if it isn’t the Darling Dotty, what can I do you for dear?” Killian smiled as he approached Dorothy slowly

“You can start by moving away so I can breathe air that doesn’t reek of rum” Dorothy smiled sarcastically “Then you can tell me what the hell you think was a good idea about starting up a rival glee club”

“Ah so you’ve heard about my Poison Apples?” Killian smirked

“Wow is that a personal stab at Mary Margaret?”

“Of course not” Killian smirked as he put his hand around Dorothy’s waist

“Back it up Rummy, I have mace” Dorothy said sternly, Killian shrugged and removed his hand

“What makes you think anyone wants to join your pathetic Fantasies anyway?”

“We have 10 members already” Dorothy smirked

“And they can all sing?” Killian smirked deviously

“We don’t know our auditions are after school”

“FOR GOD’S SAKE DOROTHY!” Mary Margaret yelled as she stormed into Killian’s office “Alright Hook here’s the deal either you shut down your club or we’ll crush you at Sectionals”

“If you can find two more kids to join, anyway I have a class to prepare for” Killian smirked as he breezed out of his office

“Oh crud…” Dorothy sighed

“Dotty… You were useless… Just sayin’” Mary Margaret sighed as she left

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Hello my name is Michael Friend and I will be singing Somewhere from West Side Story” Michael smiled from center stage “There's a place for us. Somewhere a place for us. Peace and quiet and open air. Wait for us. Somewhere. There's a time for us. Some day a time for us. Time together with time to spare. Time to look, time to care. Some day! Somewhere. We'll find a new way of living. We'll find a way of forgiving. Somewhere… There's a place for us. A time and place for us. Hold my hand and we're halfway there. Hold my hand and I'll take you there. Somehow. Some day. Somewhere!” Michael belted the last note flawlessly the others all cheered for him as he stood waiting for the verdict

“Welcome to glee club Mr. Friend” Mary Margaret said into the microphone “Thanks so much for helping us out Robert” She said turning to her friend

“Not a problem, it’s lovely to help out the two best teachers at this school” Robert grinned at Mary Margaret and Dorothy

“Next up is Briar Rowe” Dorothy said into the microphone

“Hello I’m Briar and I’ll be singing Starlight by Taylor Swift” Briar grinned “I said, "Oh my, what a marvelous tune. It was the best night, never would forget how we moved. The whole place was dressed to the nines, and we were dancing, dancing. Like we're made of starlight. Like we're made of starlight". I met Bobby on the boardwalk, summer of '45. Picked me up, late one night out the window. We were seventeen and crazy, running wild, wild. Can't remember what song it was playing when we walked in. The night we snuck into a yacht club party. Pretending to be a duchess and a prince. I said, "Oh my, what a marvelous tune. It was the best night, never would forget how we moved. The whole place was dressed to the nines, and we were dancing dancing. Like we're made of starlight, starlight. Like we're made of starlight, starlight"” The blonde sang beautifully and softly as she started to dance “He said, "Look at you worrying so much about things you can't change. You'll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way,". He was trying to skip rocks on the ocean saying to me, "Don't you see the starlight, starlight? Don't you dream impossible things?" Oh my, what a marvelous tune. It was the best night, never would forget how we moved. The whole place was dressed to the nines, and we were dancing, dancing. Like we're made of starlight, starlight. Like we're made of starlight, starlight. Ooh ooh he's talking crazy. Ooh ooh dancing with me. Ooh ooh we could get married. Have ten kids and teach them how to dream. Oh my, what a marvelous tune. It was the best night, never would forget how we moved. The whole place was dressed to the nines, and we were dancing, dancing. Like we're made of starlight, starlight. Like we're made of starlight, starlight. Like we're made of starlight, starlight. Like we dream impossible dreams. Like starlight, starlight. Like we dream impossible dreams. Don't you see the starlight starlight? Don't you dream impossible things?” She finished and looked hopefully at the three adults sitting in the audience

“Congratulations Briar” Mary Margaret smiled “You were fantastic!”

“So I’m in?” Briar smiled

“Indeed you are” Dorothy grinned. The blonde simply jumped and ran off stage

“Excitable little thing…” Robert mumbled

“Next is Henley Darling” Mary Margaret smiled as the red head strode out onto the stage

“I will, in tribute to my Enchanted Forest life, be singing Here’s To Never Growing Up” Henley grinned “Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs. With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love. I got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk. Singing here's to never growing up. Call up all of our friends. Go hard this weekend. For no damn reason. I don't think we'll ever change. Meet you at the spot. Half past 10 o'clock. We don't ever stop. And we're never gonna change. Say. Won't you say forever? Stay. If you stay forever. Hey. We can stay forever young.” The red head danced crazily around the stage as she sang, the other students watching from the wings confused “Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs. With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love. I got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk. Singing here's to never growing up. We'll be running down the street yellin' "kiss my ass". I'm like "yeah whatever", we're still living like that. When the sun's going down we'll be raising our cups. Singing here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up. We live like rockstars. Dance on every bar. This is who we are. I don't think we'll ever change. They say "just grow up". But they don't know us. We don't give a stuff. And we're never gonna change. Say. Won't you say forever? Stay. If you stay forever. Hey. We can stay forever young. Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs. With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love. I got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk. Singing here's to never growing up. We'll be running down the street yelling "kiss my ass". I'm like "yeah whatever", we're still living like that. When the sun's going down we'll be raising our cups. Singing here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up. Say. Won't you say forever? Stay. If you stay forever. Hey. We can stay forever young. Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs. With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love. I got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk. Singing here's to never growing up. We'll be running down the street yelling "kiss my ass". I'm like "yeah whatever", we're still living like that. When the sun's going down we'll be raising our cups. Singing here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up. Oh whoa, oh whoa here's to never growing up.” The redhead finished dancing and smiled at the adults

“We’ll have to work on her dance skills, but other than that she’s good” Dorothy whispered

“Well done Henley!” Mary Margaret said “Welcome to glee club”

“Thank you so much Ms Blanchard!” Henley grinned as she ran off stage

“Goldberg! You’re up” Robert yelled

“Go get ‘em newbie” Rachel winked at Eric as he left the wings

“Hello, my name’s Eric Goldberg and I’ll be singing What I Did For Love from the musical A Chorus Line” Eric gulped loudly “Kiss today goodbye. The sweetness and the sorrow. Wish me luck, the same to you. But I can't regret. What I did for love, what I did for love. Look, my eyes are dry. The gift was ours to borrow. It's as if we always knew. And I won't forget what I did for love. What I did for love.” The house lights dimmed and a spotlight streamed down on the boy as he began to belt “Gone. Love is never gone. As we travel on. Love's what we'll remember. Kiss today goodbye. And point me toward tomorrow. We did what we had to do. Won't forget, can't regret. What I did for love. What I did for love. What I did for. Love. Love is never gone. As we travel on. Love's what we'll remember. Kiss today goodbye. And point me toward tomorrow. Point me toward tomorrow. We did what we had to do. Won't forget, can't regret. What I did for love, what I did for love. What I did for love.” Eric finished the song softly and the group applauded for him

”That was amazing Eric” Dorothy smiled at the young man

“I have to agree with Miss Dandridge here Goldberg, you’ve got a great voice” Robert said

“Well then, welcome to glee club” Mary Margaret smiled

“Awesome! Thank you so much!” Eric skipped off the stage

“Don’t get too happy Goldberg” Michael snarled

“Heeerreee we go” Kyler rolled his eyes

“Shut it Wilde!” Michael snapped

“My bet says the Michael punches the newbie first” Briar whispered to Chandler

“M-My bet says Kyler hits both first” He stammered

“You’re SO on” Briar grinned

“The only reason people are being so nice to you is because it’s your first day. Mr. Cloak was nice to us ALL on our first day by tomorrow he’ll be sick of you!” Michael smirked. Eric simply rolled his eyes, sighed heavily and punched Michael in the face

“Here have a swollen lip.” Eric smiled “Matches your over inflated ego”

“HAH! You both lose!” Kyler laughed at Briar and Chandler

“Final call for Chandler Little” Mary Margaret said snapping the group back to reality, Chandler ran out

“HERE!” He smiled “I-I’ll be singing An Honest Mistake” He sighed gripped the microphone tightly and began to sing “People. They don't mean a thing to you. They move right through you. Just like your breath. But sometimes. I still think of you. And I just wanted to. Just wanted you to know. My old friend... I swear I never meant for this. I never meant... Don't look at me that way. It was an honest mistake. Don't look at me that way. It was an honest mistake. An honest mistake. Sometimes. I forget I'm still awake. I fuck up and say these things out loud. My old friend... I swear I never meant for this. I never meant... Don't look at me that way. It was an honest mistake. Don't look at me that way. It was an honest mistake. An honest mistake. Don't look at me that way. It was an honest mistake. Don't look at me that way. It was an honest mistake. An honest mistake.” Chandler finished solemnly

“That was great Little! Wow you’re finally good at something” Robert laughed until Dorothy slapped across the face

“Apologize! NOW!” She growled at him

“I’m sorry Little that was very rude”

“It’s okay sir, I get worse” Chandler looked down

”Anyway Chandler.” Mary Margaret smiled at the boy “I can say that you were exceptional up there. Welcome to The Flawless Fantasies”

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Alright you lot” Killian grinned at the students sitting at the desks in front of him “I hope you all know why you’re here”

“Cause we’ve won a prize!?” Annie asked hopefully

“Is she really that dumb?” Percy whispered to Audrey

“She’s smarter than your sack of meat over there” Audrey smirked referring to Herk

“Touché madam” Percy replied

“Indeed you have Miss Adams!” Killian grinned

“WHAT!” The others screamed

“Annie was right about something?!” Zachery said panicked

“Oh sweet Lord the apocalypse is on its way people!” Raleigh laughed

“Shut up! I got a C on my English test last week!” Annie smiled proudly

“Cause I let you copy most of my test” Audrey said confused “Also it was the first time this semester you spelt your name correctly”

“Oh yeah” Annie giggled

“ANYWAY back to my point” Killian said irritated “You’ve all won the chance to be the stars of my glee club!”

“Oh wow… Just when I thought my social standings couldn’t get lower” Zachery sighed

“Quiet you! You are the most devious, crafty and evil students at this school” Killian smirked “And I know that each and everyone of you can perform. BUT don’t want to join the Tea and Cakes club that are holding auditions right now.”

“I think that’s a great point” Raleigh smiled “Audrey, how are you meant to hold onto your Head Bitch In Charge position if you’re not in the cooler glee club and down a follower?” Audrey grinned deviously at her

“You have a great point there Wolff” Audrey said “And all this time I thought you were Plain Old Thievin’ White Trash”

“Shove it Boyd!” Raleigh snapped

“Ooh temper, temper” Audrey smiled mischievously

“Annie, you’re pretty much gonna choose whatever Audrey chooses”

“Indubitably” Annie smiled

“Where’d you learn that word?” Audrey raised her eyebrow

“Oh my fancy, smart people word calendar Ashley got me for Christmas”

“Note to self burn that calendar” Audrey muttered

“Percy, you claim you’re the best at everything, now’s your chance to prove once and for all you’re top dog” Raleigh smiled, Percy simply laughed

“Claim, sweetheart I know I’m the best” Percy shrugged

“Are you in?” Herk asked

“Why would you care?” Zachery shook his head

“Cause if Percy isn’t doing it I’m not!” Herk snapped

“Enough! Either you all do it or I fail you all in gym class” Killian smirked

“Ooh that is evil” Annie sighed

“What the hell are you on about?” Raleigh snapped “You and The Pampered Pooch there don’t even take part in gym because and I quote “We might break a nail””

“Who do you think you’re calling Pooch, Dog Breath?!” Audrey snapped tackling Raleigh

“LADIES!” Killian roared “We want to destroy the Flawed Flops not each other now either work together or fail gym”

“I’m in!” Annie grinned

“Fine” Zachery sighed

“If I say yes can leave?” Percy sighed

“If Mutt Breath calms her tits I will” Audrey looked away

“Whatever” Raleigh rolled her eyes

“Sure” Herk smiled

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to The Poison Apples” Killian grinned deviously

“Alright next up is Kyler Wilde” Dorothy said into the microphone. Kyler smiled widely as he strutted across the stage

“Hello, I’m Kyler and I’ll be performing It’s Time by Imagine Dragons” He winked at what everyone thought was Ms B and Miss D when in fact he winked right at Robert “So this is what you meant. When you said that you were spent. And now it's time to build from the bottom of the pit, right to the top. Don't hold back. Packing my bags and giving the Academy a rain check. I don't ever want to let you down. I don't ever want to leave this town. Cause after all. This city never sleeps at night. It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit. I'm just the same as I was. Now don't you understand? But I'm never changing who I am. So this is where you fell. And I am left to sell. The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell right to the top. Don't look back. Turning to rags and giving the commodities a rain check. I don't ever want to let you down. I don't ever want to leave this town. Cause after all. This city never sleeps at night. It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit. I'm just the same as I was. Now don't you understand? But I'm never changing who I am. It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit. I'm just the same as I was. Now don't you understand? But I'm never changing who I am. This road never looked so lonely. This house doesn't burn down slowly. To ashes. To ashes. It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit. I'm just the same as I was. Now don't you understand? But I'm never changing who I am. It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit. I'm just the same as I was. Now don't you understand? But I'm never changing who I am”

“That was great Wilde.” Robert smiled “Also you’re failing my class, I’ll see you in my office after this”

“Sure Mr. Cloak” Kyler grumbled

“Well other than that little note I can safely say that you’re in” Dorothy smiled

“Next up is Rachel Powell” Mary Margaret announced

“Wish me luck guys” Rachel smiled at the group

“Hi I’m Rachel and I’ll be singing a mashup of A Place In This World and Innocent by Taylor Swift” She smiled sweetly “I don't know what I want. So don't ask me 'cause I'm still trying to figure it out. Don't know what's down this road. I'm just walking, trying to see through the rain coming down. Even though I'm not the only one who feels the way I do. You're still an innocent, you're still an innocent. Wasn't it easier in your lunchbox days? Always a bigger bed to crawl into. Wasn't it beautiful when you believed in everything? And everybody believed in you?  It's alright, just wait and see. Your string of lights is still bright to me. Oh, who you are is not where you've been. You're still an innocent, you're still an innocent. Did some things you can't speak of. But at night you live it all again. You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now. If only you had seen what you know now then. Got the radio on, my old blue jeans. And I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve. Feeling lucky today, got the sunshine. Can you tell me what more do I need? And tomorrow's just a mystery, oh, yeah, but that's okay. I'm alone, on my own and I'm starting off. I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh, but life goes on. Oh, I'm just a girl trying to find a place in this world. You're still an innocent, you're still an innocent. You're still an innocent, you're still an innocent. It's okay, life is a tough crowd. 32 and still growin' up now. Who you are is not what you did. You're still an innocent, you're still an innocent. Oh, I'm still an innocent. Oh, I'm just a girl. Oh, I'm still an innocent. Oh, I'm just a girl. Lost your balance on a tightrope. It's never too late to get it back” Rachel finished smiling at the adults

“That was fantastic Rachel” Mary Margaret said

“Congratulations, welcome to the glee club” Dorothy smiled and Rachel ran of the stage ecstatic “Next up is Martin Green” Dorothy said and out strode a handsome Arabic boy

“Hello, I’ll be singing Working For The Weekend” Martin smirked “Everyone's watchin' to see what you will do. Everyone's lookin' at you, oh. Everyone's wonderin' will you come out tonight. Everyone's tryin' to get it right, get it right. Everybody's workin' for the weekend. Everybody wants a new romance. Everybody's goin' off the deep end. Everybody needs a second chance, oh. You want a piece of my heart. You better start from the start. You wanna be in the show. C'mon baby let's go. Everyone's lookin' to see if it was you. Everyone wants you to go through. Everyone's hopin' it'll all work out. Everyone's dyin' to give a shout, give a shout. Everybody's workin' for the weekend, yeah. Everybody wants a new romance, hey yeah. Everybody's goin' off the deep end. Everybody needs a second chance, oh.” Martin sang amazingly as he danced around like a rockstar “You want a piece of my heart. You better start from the start. You wanna be in the show. C'mon baby let's go. Hey. You want a piece of my heart. You better start from the start. You wanna be in the show. C'mon baby let's go. You want a piece of my heart. You better start from the start. You wanna be in the show. C'mon baby let's go” Martin finished

“That was very… Nice” Dorothy smiled

“So I’m in?” Martin smirked

“You could say that” Mary Margaret said breezily

“Lamontague! You’re up!” Robert yelled

“Alright!” Isabelle ran out excited “I’ll be singing Feed The Birds from Mary Poppins” She smiled as she the lights dimmed and a spotlight shone down on her “Early each day to the steps of St. Paul's. The little old bird woman comes. In her own special way to the people she calls. Come buy my bags full of crumbs. Come feed the little birds, show them you care. And you'll be glad if you do. Their young ones are hungry, their nests are so bare. All it takes is tuppence from you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag. Feed the birds, that's what she cries. While overhead her birds fill the skies. All around the cathedral the saints and apostles. Look down as she sells her wares. Although you can't see it you know they are smiling. Each time someone shows that he cares. Though her words are simple and few. Listen, listen, she's calling to you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag. Though her words are simple and few. Listen, listen, she's calling to you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag.”

“That was beautiful Isabelle, welcome to the glee club.” Mary Margaret said sweetly

“Next up is our final performer Amelia Boyd” Dorothy smiled, the smile quickly faded as all ten students trotted out onto the stage “Um… Just Amelia thank you”

“Oh, I’m sorry I need a little help with my audition” Amelia sighed

“That’s fine Amelia” Mary Margaret smiled

“I will be singing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story with the help of The Flawless Fantasies” Amelia smiled as each person took their position “I feel pretty. Oh so pretty. I feel pretty and witty and bright. And I pity. Any girl who isn't me today. I feel charming. Oh so charming. It's alarming how charming I feel. And so pretty. That I hardly can believe I'm real. See the pretty girl in that mirror there? Who can that attractive girl be? Such a pretty face. Such a pretty dress. Such a pretty smile. Such a pretty me! I feel stunning. And entrancing. Feel like running. And dancing for joy. For I'm loved. By a pretty wonderful boy” Amelia sang as The Flawless Fantasies crowded around her

“Have you met my good friend Amelia, the craziest girl on the block?” the group sang “You'll know her the minute you see her. She's the one who is in an advanced state of shock. Keep away from her. Send for Chino. This is not the Amelia we know. Modest and pure. Polite and refined. Well-bred and mature. And out of her mind! Miss America, Miss America, speech! Miss America, bravo, speech!” The group cheered as Amelia strutted through them 

“I feel pretty. Oh so pretty.” Amelia sang “That the city should give me its key. A committee. Should be organized to honor me. I feel dizzy. I feel sunny. I feel fizzy and funny and fine. And so pretty. Miss America can just resign.  See the pretty girl in that mirror there”

“What mirror, where?” The group sang

“Who can that attractive girl be?” 

“Which, what, where, whom?”

“Such a pretty face. Such a pretty dress. Such a pretty smile. Such a pretty me!” Amelia belted “I feel stunning. And entrancing. Feel like running and dancing for joy. For I'm loved. By a pretty wonderful boy” The group all struck their poses, all three adults rose to their feet 

“Bravo!” Robert yelled

“That was amazing ladies and gentlemen” Dorothy smiled

“Miss Dandridge, Mr. Cloak” Mary Margaret smiled as she joined the group “May I present The Flawless Fantasies!” Both Dorothy and Robert cheered and clapped like crazy for them as they all cheered and hugged

______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Welcome to the first ever glee club meeting for The Flawless Fantasies” Mary Margaret grinned as she breezed into the choir room “Today we’ll be talking about an anthem”

“An anthem?” Chandler asked cautiously

“Yes just one anthem, Proud by Heather Small” Mary Margaret smiled as she handed out sheet music

“Why are we learning this one?” Amelia said bored

“Because Miss Boyd, each glee club has their own “feel good anthem”, a group from Ohio used Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey, another team from Chicago sing Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding, and we’ll be singing Proud by Heather Small. Hit it!” Mary Margaret yelled to the pianist

“I look into the window of my mind” Rachel sang as she stepped forward “Reflections of the fears I know I've left behind”

“I step out of the ordinary. I can feel my soul ascending” Kyler sang “I'm on my way, can't stop me now. And you can do the same, yeah”

“What have you done today to make you feel proud?” the group sang together “It's never too late to try. What have you done today to make you feel proud? You could be so many people. If you make that break for freedom. What have you done today to make you feel proud?”

“Still so many answers I don't know” Amelia sang beautifully

“There are so many answers.” Briar sang softly underneath Amelia’s voice

“Realize that to question is how we grow”

“To question is to grow”

“So I step out of the ordinary” Chandler sang as he started to dance with Henley “I can feel my soul ascending. I am on my way, can't stop me now. You can do the same, yeah”

“What have you done today to make you feel proud?” the group sang together “It's never too late to try. What have you done today to make you feel proud? You could be so many people. If you make that break for freedom. What have you done today to make you feel proud?”

“Yeah, we need a change.” Henley sang with the group harmonizing behind her “Yeah, do it today, yeah. I can feel my spirit rising”

“Change, yeah, we need a change.” Martin sang with the group harmonizing behind him “Yeah, so do it today, yeah. 'Cause I can see a clear horizon”

“What have you done today to make you feel proud?” The group sang

“To make you feel proud, yeah. Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya” Eric belted

“So what have you done today to make you feel proud?” The whole group sang

“'Cause you could be so many people” Michael sang “If you make that break for freedom”

“So what have you done today to make you feel proud? What have you done today to make you feel proud?”

“Yeah, let me hear ya, what have you done today? What have you done today?” Isabelle belted 

“What have you done today to make you feel proud? You could be so many people.” The group sang as they walked in a line towards Mary Margaret “Just make that break for freedom. So what have you done today to make you feel proud?” They finished fists in the air. Mary Margaret clapped ecstatically

“That was flawless kids!” She laughed “Well done!” the group all smiled and hugged and started to think they may actually be able to pass for a flawless glee club after all
