Link: What’ll we do?
Rick: SWORD FIGHTING!!! *they both jump around like little kids*
Link: To the crazy tryouts, AWAY!!!
(in the gym)
Link: So Star? What are you doing?
Star (new friend~magic horse): It’s a secret...how do you keep a blonde in suspense?
Star: I’ll tell you later...
Link: Just tell me!!!
Rick: He got you.
Link: *embarrassed* Oh...

Talent scout: Oh, that'll be good. Next!
(30 min’s later)
Talent scout: Dismissed!
(The next day)
Announcer: And for the talent show, everyone’s in!
(A chorus of “Yay!” mixed with “Shoot!”
Link: Prepare to be the middle school laughingstock.
Rick: We already are!
Link: Good point.
(Dress rehearsal 2 weeks later)
Link: Star??? Star did you get caught in the sale bin again?
Rick: You look like MC Hammer!
Star: I’m a rapper!
(Rick sees Zelda in a dress and whistles)
Zelda: *embarrassed* Don’t ever do that again!!!
Link: *suddenly* Back off!
Rick: LINK’S GOT A GIRLFRIEND!
Star: *tilts sunglasses* Ya can’t be serious!
Link: He’s not!
Star: Yo, back off! I only listen to the talker.
Link: Whatever. We’ re up!
(On stage, Link, Rick and JC [new friend~Hylian] demonstrate sword fighting)
Link: And finally... *sword slips and hits bystander* Oops...
Talent scout: Next act!
Sage and Malon: DISCO! *do song*
Link: Is it just me, or did we just get a taste of the 60's?
Star: It’s not you.
(Link’s band comes up)
Link: What song are we goin to do?
Girls: Zelda’s Lullaby!
Link: I thought we were going to do “Running to Catch Myself”!
JC: Me too!
(They start fighting)
Talent scout: ALRIGHT! ARE YOU 13 OR 3?!?
Talent scout: BREAK UP THE BAND! BOYS BAND AND GIRLS BAND!
Zelda: But we don’t have anyone to play the flute!
Talent scout: Maggie can’t do her act, so she’s your flute..est. K?
Zelda: Yes, ma'am.
Talent scout: Back to the practice!
(Later Maggie and Zelda are talking)
Zelda: Promise you won’t kill us.
Maggie: Promise??? All I want are a few friends!
Zelda: Well, then be nicer.
Maggie: K...that'll kill me!
Zelda: *sigh* No it won’t.
(Next week, Maggie has more friends, Sage is a good violinist. The dudes are having a “drumming dilemma”, and Link and Zelda haven't talked to each other for a while. This means trouble...)
Zelda: OMG! The Talent Show is tonight!
Maggie: Oh shoot!
Malon: This oughta be good!
(Over at the guy’s bathroom)
Link: Fiddlesticks, we're taping the drumsticks to your hands this time. We don’t want to hit Mr. Chavez again...

Star: Yo, yo, yo! Wassup? Tonight we're doin my personal favorite, “Mystery Meat”! A one, two, a one, two, three, four! *starts rapping*
I stared school when I was a colt
They fed us stuff we said was revolt!
Shingles, mud, deep-fried wookies
It made us toss out our cookies!
That one thing we hated to eat
We learned it was called Mystery Meat!
So we had PB&J
They saw that we didn’t like it
so they stopped serving it!
One thing I gotta tell you do not eat
never, ever, ever try your Mystery Meat! WHAT!
Crowd: *goes wild* WHOOOHOOO! YEAH! ROCK ON! Etc.
Star: Thank yall dudes and dudetts! Thank you and good night!
Fiddlesticks: And the winner is...ME!!! F-I-D-D-L-E-S-T-I-C...K-S!!! What’s that spell!
