Adventure Life Season 2: Mixed World Catastrophe (REWRITE)

Tryouts

Chapter 6: Tryouts

The Rainbooms, Spin Harmony and Spiritual Six walked into the sports hall as Principal Celestia was booming in the mic.

"Welcome to the first ever Canterlot High School Battle of the Bands. I believe I speak for everyone when I say it is by far the greatest thing we have ever done here at this school!" The Rainbooms rolled their eyes and everyone else cheered.

"We are so glad our three newest students encouraged us to turn this event into something exciting!"

"But, as this is now a competition, we can only choose one winner." Vice Principal Luna said dramatically, fanning the flames of the students "Who is it going to be?" Thus making the students argue as Luna (Claudia) sighs.

"You are the worst thing to happen!" A random boy sneers in the background while the Dazzlings laughed

"You feel that, girls? Our true power is being restored" Adagio smirked, her companions (compadres) giggled.

"And that's before we've tapped into the strongest magic here"

"But the Rainblossoms, or whatever they're called, aren't under our spell" Aira interjected "How exactly are we supposed to get to their magic?"

"Don't forget their friends" Sonata said.

"They aren't special Sonata, I bet their already under our spell"

"The Rainbooms are just as capable of falling apart as anyone else." Adagio ignored the two and started plotting "They just need a little... push in the wrong direction. I have a feeling everyone here is going to be lining up to give them a shove." The Dazzlings laughed evilly as they watched the Rainbooms look around.

The tryouts started and on the stage was Snips and Snails uhhh…. Beatboxing poorly

[Snails]

Aw, yeah! Snips and Snails indahouse, yo!

[Snips]

They call me MC Snips and that ain't no lie

My favorite food is like pumpkin pie

[Snails]

I'm DJ Snazzy Snails, I like whales

When I go to the beach, I always bring my pails

[Snips]

[beatboxing poorly]

Everybody knows my favorite color is orange

My rhymes are so fly, they're better than... um…

[Snails]

Than an orange, yo!

[Snips]

Yeah!

[Snails]

Yeah!

[Snips]

Represent!

Everyone was groaning, rolling their eyes or facepalming…. They were as bad as when Karina was still terrible at singing!

"What do we... What do we do now?" Snips asked, they were finished apparently and had no idea what to do now.

"Get off the stage, I'd like to leave right now" Replied Snails, they started beatboxing and freestyling again.

[Snips]

Bam! That just happened!

[Snails]

Aw, yeah! We out!

[Snips]

Snips and Snails outta here!

They then dropped their microphones which gave off a loud screech.

"Please do not drop the microphones" Celestia said flatly, writing down the scores with Luna.

"Yeah! Bam!" Snips laughed as the got off stage

"In your face, Rainbooms!" Snips sneered as they walked off, proud of themselves.

"Least we know one group who won't stand in the way of us gettin' to the finals" Joked Applejack once the were out of hearing sight.

"Now up on the stage, Spin Harmony!" Celestia announced, The ninjas looked at each other and grinned, each knowing what song they wanted to do…. they also needed a bigger stage.

"Good luck!"

Everyone booed as the ninja got on stage, they frowned but none other the less started the song.

[Kai]

It's time for training and we're getting started-

it's on, you know

At first all they did was sing, the students rolled their eyes, bored and the Rainbooms looked at them and sighed.

[Jay]

and we wanna see you whip and shout it-

we rock,

you roll.

The Rainbooms brightened, the song was kinda catchy.

[Lloyd]

they say, go slow

and everything just stands so still

we say, go go!

[Zane]

we're ready for the fight, we know the drill

Monday morning and we feel defeated,

seems so long ago

[Cole]

Tuesday's comin' -

'til we're in our zone

they say, go slow

[Everyone]

and everything just stands so still

we say, go go!

you're gonna see us rip into it,

just jump up kick back whip around and spin

Just like the lyrics, the ninjas and kunoichi jumped up, kicked and then started performing spinjitzu. The audience and Dazzlings gasped, as the Rainbooms clapped and the Spiritual Six smirked.

and then we jump back, do it again

Ninja-Go!

Ninja,come on, come on, come on

The audience clapped and the two principals wrote down their scores.

"You guys totally rocked!" Rainbow Dash complemented full-heartedly as the ninja and kunoichi jumped off the stage."It was fine" Lloyd dismissed

"I can't believe i'm saying this but the bad guys who interrupted our song before made it way better" Jay stated.

"Next is the Spiritual Six!"

"It's our turn!" Karina yelped

"Break a leg!""Gah!" Adagio grumbled "I did not see that coming""Those friends Aria" She started "WERE MAGICAL?!"

"Hey I'm as surprised as you" Aria shrugged, Sonata looked up

"So we're targeting them too?"

[Karina] (SAO crossing fields)

Put your swords all down

And stand up with the crowd

And admit it

Your power, flows into your veins

It will not get stretched or get strained

[Claudia]

You realise

When des-tin-y chose you,

To fight,

All the evil deeds,

Like the s-s-serpentine

Or the nindroids

[Alessandro]

We must stand strong, with our teammates

No matter how we're knocked around or beaten down

We won't ever give up

[Max]

All the evil has yet to wake

I know pure strength is what I lack

You've got my back and know that we've got yours

[Gloria]

We have you to thank for lighting up the dark

Because Lloyd's here with us

Our tornadoes will spin

Forever

Lloyd grinned, it was obvious this song was written for them.

[Christina]

(we want to fight for all our lives

no matter how we will survive)

[Karina]

I could never light to guide us through the

Night

And with one touch, now I can, light up your whole sight

You guys are too precious to me

[Gloria]

It's tempting to close your

Eyes and turn from ninjago

But if we left now

There would be a missing beat

We are a team

[Karina]

When all our fates have overlapped

You'll realize if you carry on with every fight

Your hesitation's gone

[Christina]

All of your fears will disappear

I will become a sword to protect you guys

This destiny is a curse

[Alessandro]

The powers we control will last for all our days

And it's our fates we place squarely

In your hands

[Max]

We only need one miracle

Can you not see us at all?

But one day, you'll keep screaming our names!

[Claudia]

Once in my dreams I fought with pride

No matter how I was knocked around or beaten down

I would stand up, restored

[Alessandro]

All the evil has yet to wake

I know confidence is what I lack

You've got my back and know that we've got yours

[Everybody]

We have you to thank for lighting up the dark

Because Lloyd's here with us

Our tornadoes will spin

Forever

[Max]

(We won't ever give up

We are a team no matter what

I swear that we will live on

We'll fight for everything we have)

Everyone clapped again as they bowed.

"Thanks!" Gloria beamed "That was written by Claudia"

"Stop it!" She blushed then punched her lightly.

"Let's get ready to rock!" Rainbow Dash pumped her fist in the air.

"Wait! Where's Rarity?" Pinkie asked, everyone frantically looked around to spot her, just to see her arriving in a coat with metal fringes on the bottom.

"Oh! Here! I'm here!" She panted running her hands along the metal fringes, making them jangle "We will be performing in front of an audience. I'm not going to wear something fabulous? Hmph."

"Guh…" Applejack grumbled. The ninjas looked backwards, the students were chattering, waiting for the next band to come on.

"Remember, we have to be good enough to make it through but not so good we let the sirens see the magic within us. They could realize we plan to use it against them." Twilight reminded them.

"Got it! Be cool enough to win, but not so cool that we end up showing off the whole ears and tails and rainbows thing. Sooo... about twenty percent less cool." Rainbow Dash reassured, the Rainbooms walked on stage.

"One! Two! Three!"

[The Rainbooms]

We've just got the day to get ready

And there's only so much time to lose

Because tonight, yeah, we're here to party

So let's think of something fun to do

We don't know (we don't know) what's gonna happen

We just know (we just know) it's gonna feel right

All our friends are here

And it's time to ignite the lights!

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight

Shake your tail, shake your tail

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight

Shake your tail, shake your tail

[Twilight Sparkle]

So what you didn't get it right the first time

"Boring!" Applebloom shouted, everyone else booed. The ninjas started sweat dropping, this was going bad. Even worse people were hijacking their show!

[Pinkie Pie]

Laugh it off, no one said it is a crime

[Rarity]

Do your thing, you know you're an original

[Applejack]

Your ideas are so funny that they're criminal

[The Rainbooms]

Ohhh-ahh!

Twilight started coughing, a piece of confetti got stuck in her mouth. The ninjas growled, this was going for too long! They nodded to Hanna who tried to use her wind to distract the show busters.

[The Rainbooms]

We've just got the day to get ready

And there's only so much time to lose

Because tonight, yeah, we're here to party

So let's think of something fun to do

Snips and Snails were laughing, At least someone is having fun Hanna thought.

"Awesome"The wind didn't work so Christy took place using her light.

[The Rainbooms]

We don't know (we don't know) what's gonna happen

We just know (we just know) it's gonna feel right

All our friends are here

And it's time to ignite the lights!

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight

Shake your tail, shake your tail

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight

Shake your tail, shake your tail

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight

Shake your tail, shake your tail

Rarity started gasping, crying at the sametime. Christy gave up.

"Their too persistent" She told the others.

[The Rainbooms]

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight

Shake your tail, shake your tail

Shake your tail 'cause we're here to have a party tonight!

Principal Celestia and vice principal Luna were applauding mockingly as the hair 7 walked down from the sage.

"Ruined! Absolutely ruined!" Rarity cried.

"Rarity, were you tryin' to make us lose out there?!" Applejack asked angrily, raising her hands in the air.

"Wh- Oh! This was not my fault!" Rarity pouted, pointing the floor "This was of act of sabotage!"

"Yeah, well, whoever did this couldn't have done this if you didn't insist on dressin' like... like... this!" Applejack groaned. "We need to sound good! Is there some reason that concept seems to escape you?".

"I thought it was fine." Zane said confusingly. Karina facepalmed "Dude. A freaking band sabotaged them. HOW WAS THAT GOOD?!" Zane shrugged.

"And what was with the confetti, Pinkie Pie? How am I supposed to shred if there's paper stuck in my frets?!" Rainbow Dash shouted. Rosetta giggled a bit. (DEM PUNS)

"It was pretty distracting..." Fluttershy added.

"Ugh! Says the girl who was running from a light the whole time! A light!" Pinkie Pie said, irritated by the events. Sunset Shimmer bit her bottom lip "You still sounded much better than most of the other bands. I'm sure you'll make it to the next round. But it won't matter if you don't have that counter-spell ready. You all find a place to practice where the sirens can't hear you. I'll keep an eye on things around here." She said, walking away. Karina shifted her eyes awkwardly as she walked towards the stage. Walking behind it, she looked down and took something out of the pile. Looking around, she stuffed it in her pocket and walked out, whistling a innocent tune. Claudia raised her eyebrow but didn't question it. The ninjas laughing and cheered when Derpy came onto the stage with her band mates and started playing the musical saw.

"Are you sure?" Karinia asked nervously when Sensei asked the ninjas and their newest members to come and meet him outside.

"When you six did the training we did before, I noticed…. A pattern that you fought in. I wanted to test my theory." Sensei started. The Spiritual Six quavered slightly. "By fighting the ten of them" He finished, pointing to the kunoichi and ninjas. The Spiritual Six gulped as Kai and Cole grinned.

"Aw yes! I was waiting for some action" Cole happily said, taking out his crystal scythe.

Sensei looked at them; The ninjas and kunoichi on one side, with the spiritual six on the other. Blowing the whistle, he shouted 'GO!'

Claudia looked at her staff and up at the sky. It was night. Suddenly she felt a burst of energy as the gravity changed, making everyone surprised.

Instantly, Hanna sent a tornado at Karina, knocking her back in the air and making her crash into Claudia, making the gravity return to normal to the others' relief. They fell to the ground, confused.

Kai set his fist on fire and started repeatedly hitting Alessandro. Suddenly Alessandro sneezed loudly (YES THE MAGICAL SNEEZES ARE BACK PEOPLE) and the time stopped, allowing him to hit Kai a couple more times. As the fight carried on, Alessandro started to get the handle of stopping time and constantly used that to his advantage.

Meanwhile, Claudia got up to face Rosetta, with a dark aura starting to surround her staff. Surprised and a bit scared, she sent a beam of dark magic at her on accident. Knocking her back and pinning her onto the ground by her arms. Just as she started to blasting another beam of magic, Janet punched her in the ribs causing her to recoil in pain.

"Sorry!" She apologised before jumping up and roundhouse kicking Christina who was jump sneaking up on her.

"OY!" Karina's eyes started to glow orange as she sent a blast of fire at Janet, as Nya stopped it with her water.

"Karina, no!" She yelled over the fight continuing between Janet and Christina, who had just recovered, and a very tired Alessandro. Karina's eyes stopped glowing and she looked down shamefully, calling out "SORRY!".

Max looked around and took out his sais, before immediately putting them back. Looking around, he saw Gloria fighting against Christy and Jay, and she was losing. Rushing forward, he tried to remember all of the fighting moves he learned in his previous karate class and upper kicked Jay. Being the smallest out of all of them did have its advantage as Jay swung his nunchucks over Max's head.

While they we're fighting. Sensei was watching this whole battle. He realized that his theory was right. While Karina's punches were quick and steady, Claudia's were graceful and light; just like the moon. Max's were rough and smooth, if that was even possible. Christina's were strong and powerful like the darkness she possessed. Gloria's we're graceful and smooth, almost like she was dancing while Alessandro's were quick and…. Chunky. Quickly seeing that the fight was getting out of hand, he started frantically blowing the whistle.

"STOP!" The ninjas stopped and looked at their sensei, bowing apologetically.

"Sorry sensei." Looking up, they saw that it was already morning. Meaning that their fight took a half a day.

"I think it's time we should get back to the man- Ahem, Hair 7" Lloyd said. The other nodded.
