Glee: New Directions

Two kids, a boy and a girl, walked into the choir room.

"Hi," Brittany said," I'm running auditions and you two are probably going to be in New Directions. Isn't it awesome?!"

"Uh, yeah, sure," the girl said and the boy gave a thumb's up and nodded enthusiastically.

"So," Brittany said," Who's going first?"

"I will," the boy said immediately," I'm Hepburn Hummel-Anderson and I'll be singing Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves."

"Oh, cool, I sang that once but it was a mash-up with Halo. Do you like 80s music?"

"Yeah!"

I'm Hepburn Hummel-Anderson and New Directions sounds super cool! My daddy, Kurt, told me all about the adventures he and his friends got into in New Directions and I can't wait! What won't be great is having to hang out with my dad, Blaine. He and daddy are divorced and they never talk to each other.

"I used to think you loved me, now, baby, I'm sure

And I just can't wait till the day when you knock on the door

Now every time I go to the mailbox, gotta hold myself down

'Cause I just can't wait till you write me you're coming around


I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

And don't it feel good

Hey, all right now

And don't it feel good

Hey, yeah


I used to think you loved me, now I know that it's true

And I don't want to spend my whole life just-a-waiting for you

Now, I don't want you back for the weekend, not back for a day, no, no, no

I said, baby, I just want you back, and I want you to stay


Oh, yeah, now I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

And don't it feel good

Hey, all right now

And don't it feel good

Yeah, oh, yeah, now

And don't it feel good


Walking on sunshine

Walking on sunshine


I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that's really real

I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that's really real

I'm on sunshine, baby, oh

Oh, yeah, I'm on sunshine, baby


"Oh, I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

I'm walking on sunshine, whoa

And don't it feel good

Hey, all right now

And don't it feel good

I'll say it, I'll say it, I'll say it again now

And don't it feel good

Hey, yeah now


And don't it feel good

Now don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it

And don't it feel good

I'll say it, I'll say it, I'll say it again now

And don't it feel good

Now don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it

And don't it feel good

Now tell me, tell me, tell me again now

And don't it feel good

Oh, yeah, now

And don't it feel good

Oh, don't it feel good, don't it feel good

Now don't it feel good

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

And don't it feel good

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

And don't it feel good."

"That was great!" Brittany exclaimed," That's probably the second best version of that song!"

"What's the best?" Hepburn asked.

"Oh that was the mash-up with Halo that me and my girl friends, and my actual girlfriend, did."

"It's my turn now, right?" the girl asked.

"Yeah. What's your name?"

"Sara Evans and I'll be singing Diamonds by Rihanna."

"Okay."

Here's my chance to be a star. I have the perfect song and my mom's voice. I honestly cannot wait for this. My mom let me choose between New Directions and the Troubletones. I considered the Troubletones but New Directions is where my parents met and they tell me so much about it. I'm going to be a queen.


"Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond


Find light in the beautiful sea

I choose to be happy

You and I, you and I

We're like diamonds in the sky


You're a shooting star I see

A vision of ecstasy

When you hold me, I'm alive

We're like diamonds in the sky


I knew that we'd become one right away

Oh, right away

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays

I saw the life inside your eyes


So shine bright tonight, you and I

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Eye to eye, so alive

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky


Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky


Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky


Palms rise to the universe

As we moonshine and molly

Feel the warmth, we'll never die

We're like diamonds in the sky


You're a shooting star I see

A vision of ecstasy

When you hold me, I'm alive

We're like diamonds in the sky


At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays

I saw the life inside your eyes


So shine bright tonight, you and I

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Eye to eye, so alive

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky


Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky


Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Oh, yeah

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond."

Brittany clapped again, grinning.

"That was great too," Brittany exclaimed.


Meanwhile in the auditorium Blaine was getting the kids ready for a group song.

"Alright, we're going to be singing I Lived by OneRepublic. It was the last song the Original New Directions performed so it's fitting that it's the first song we sing together."

Lacey rolled her eyes. She wanted to get out of here

"Hope when you take that jump,you don't fear the fall," Drew and Sofia sang, "Hope when the water rises, you built a wall."

"Hope when the crowd screams out, it's screaming your name," Aaron and Shrinidhie sang,"Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay."

"Hope that you fall in love, and it hurts so bad," Junior and Avery sang," The only way that you can know is to give it all you have

"And I hope that you don't suffer but take the pain," Ty and Gabriella sang,"Hope when the moment come you'll say..."

"I, I did it all," everyone sang,"I, I did it all

I owned every second this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived."

"Hope that you spend your days, but they all add up," Jonathan and Lacey sang,"And when the sun goes down, hope you raise your cup."

"Oh, I wish that I could witness all your joy and all your pain," Jordan sang,"But until my moment comes, I'll say..."

"I, I did it all," everyone sang,"I, I did it all

I owned every second this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived."

"Oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh," all the boy sang," Oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh."

"With every broken bone I swear I lived," the girls sang.

"With every broken bone, I swear I..." the boys sang.

"I, I did it all," everyone sang," I, I did it all I owned every second that this world could giveI saw so many places, the things that I didWith every broken bone, I swear I lived." "Oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh," the girls sang," Oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh I swear I livedOh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohOh, oh, oh, oh." "That was great," Blaine said.

"Sorry Mr Anderson, but we were awful," Gabriella said.

"You just need practice," Blaine said as Shrindihie snorted," Well, New Directions practice is over."

Everyone walked out the door then split off in several directions. Shrindhie and Gabriella headed into to the bathroom. They started kissing and were getting into the make-out, when the door opened and a girl walked in.

"Clarissa," Gabriella said as she resurfaced,"I've been wanting to talk to you. Why the h*ll did you think it was okay to smear my reputation?"

"You smeared my girlfriend's reputation. You're going to pay," Shrinidhie said.

Clarissa snorted. "As if, you don't really care about her just what she can give you."

"And the same isn't true about your boyfriend. He's going to dump you once he's on top, but you're a naive idiot who doesn't get it."

"What are you talking about?!" Clarissa yelled, which rose to a scream," My boyfriend always knows what's best. He is intelligent and wise."

Clarisa turned on Shrinidhie and slapped her in the face.

After she left, Shrinidhie embraced Gabriella again.

"You know," Gabriella said," Clarissa's pretty f***** up. She might be the biggest b**** in the school. I think she got her boyfriend to tell the whole school that I was a lesbian."

"That's awful!"

"Yeah. She'll get what she deserves eventually."


Later, New Directions was at the school assembly hall. The Troubletones were going to perform.

"Do you know any of them?" Jonathan whispered to Aaron

"Yeah, that's Amelia Sterling-Duval, she super sweet, and that's Addy Cooper, her best friend. Oh yeah, there's the lead singer."

"Who?"

"Clarissa Abrams. She the HBIC of the school and she's ruthless. According to some people, she nice deep deep down inside but I think it's just a rumor. At this school, she's evil incarnate."

The Troubletones girls stepped out onto the stage and the music began to play.

"In your eyes, there's a heavy blue," Clarissa sang," One to love, and one to lose Sweet divine, a heavy truthWater or wine, don't make me choose." "I wanna feel the way that we did that summer night, night," Addy sang,"Drunk on a feeling, alone with the stars in the sky."

"I've been running through the jungle," all the Troubletones sang," I've been running with the wolves To get to you, to get to youI've been down the darkest alleysSaw the dark side of the moonTo get to you, to get to youI've looked for love in every strangerTook too much to ease the angerAll for you, yeah, all for youI've been running through the jungleI've been crying with the wolvesTo get to you, to get to you, to get to you." "To get to you," Amelia sang," To get to you."

"You fingertips trace my skin," Clarissa sang,"To places I have never been

Blindly, I am following

Break down these walls and com on in."

"I wanna feel the way that we did that summer night, night," Addy sang,"Drunk on a feeling, alone with the stars in the sky."

"I've been running through the jungle," all the Troubletones sang," I've been running with the wolves To get to you, to get to youI've been down the darkest alleysSaw the dark side of the moonTo get to you, to get to youI've looked for love in every strangerTook too much to ease the angerAll for you, yeah, all for youI've been running through the jungleI've been crying with the wolvesTo get to you, to get to you, to get to you." "To get to you," Amelia sang," To get to you."

"I've been running through the jungle," all the Troubletones sang," I've been running with the wolves To get to you, to get to youI've been down the darkest alleysSaw the dark side of the moonTo get to you, to get to youI've looked for love in every strangerTook too much to ease the angerAll for you, yeah, all for youI've been running through the jungleI've been crying with the wolvesTo get to you, to get to you, to get to you." "We're doomed," Jonathan whispered.

"No, we're not," Aaron said as he reluctantly clapped. Or were they? Could they possibly beat the Troubletones?
