CORNER OF THE SKY: Pippin. PIPPIN: Minerva    I don’t AF, or Pippin, and this is just . . . her song, you know?    

   It was another meeting, sadly. They had a tendency to be boring, I thought. An unreal, pretty blonde stepped through the door, almost shyly. Like we were going to toss rotten tomatoes at her. 


That was only once! 


She walked calmly across the room, to stand behind the often empty Mod Seat. 


The clock ticked away until it read exactly 13:50. 


We all looked at each other, expecting the usual training fights, writing, coloring and odd things to occur. 


I was just fishing in my pocket for some bubble soap and I saw a few of the younger girls, who had accounts in FF but likely just hung out in the Fan Art section, take out coloring books, when Minerva cleared her throat. 


“I have something to say.” She said in a scientifically concrete voice. I groped for my mp3 instead, and started playing a song. 


“Everything has its season, everything has its time. Show me a reason, and I’ll soon show you a rhyme. Cats fit on the windowsill, children fit in the snow. Why do I feel that I don’t in anywhere I go?” 


The high male voice began to play before she started, but half way through she came in with a high alto. Many grinned, and when the mods walked in, their faces shone with “not again”. 


I whooped, as if it was a break in a rock song at a comeback concert. 


She looked like she wanted to laugh. “Rivers belong where they can ramble, eagles belong where they can fly. I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free! Got to find my corner . . . Of the sky!” 


She needed a deep breath after the long note, and Minerva was forced to actually look at us. All eyes were trained on her, something she was used to, showing many emotions she was used to: shock, confusion and awe, yet, one she wasn’t used to: growing respect. No one had ever showed that for Minerva. She was almost touched. 


“Every man has his daydreams, every man has his goal. People like the way dreams have of sticking to the soul. 


“Thunder clouds have their lightening; nightingales have their song, and don’t you see I want my life to be something more than long?” 


She seemed to be looking everyone in the eyes, her own blue eyes swimming with pleading tears. 


“Rivers belong where they can ramble! Eagles belong where they can fly! I want to be where my spirit can run free; got to find my corner . . . Of the sky!” 


Nobody was resisting her, now that they saw that she had a legitimate query. That she was voicing in song, ergo arguably not a good thing, but a formal song nonetheless. 


Now, as I know the song, everything was about to go down hill for the child genius about now. 


“So many men seem destined to settle for something small, but I won’t rest until I know I’ve had it all,” she sung, then realized what she said as more-or-less inappropriate for what she needed. 


“So don’t ask where I’m going, just listen when I’m gone and far away you’ll here me singing softly to the dawn!” Half way through, she made a slashing motion, and I considered switching to Respect by Aretha Franklin, but saw the light for her. I let her keep going. 


“Rivers belong where they can ramble, eagles belong where they can fly. I want to be where my spirit can run free. Got to find my corner . . .” 


Everyone knew what was coming, but they didn’t expect it to be so pleading, yet confident, as though she was actually saying ‘please, please, please: I know you’ll say yes!’ 


“Of the sky!” 


After her forte note succumbed to pianissimo, someone started a slow clap. 


Sadly, it did not catch on. 


But, she did smile to the admins nervously, and they seemed to negotiate. They nodded and, in unison, they all said: 


“No more Minerva is a bitch stories.” 


There was rejoicing, and there was booing. 


Then, people threw half completed stories into the garbage. Ah, well, I would rather her French blonde sing an English song than read a SueStory anyway.

  1. “You flaming boy band cabaret!”

    I loved that. A musical on paper, I mean screen, I mean…. in type. Sheer brilliance.

  2. You’re crazy. =)=)

  3. That was totally insane! I loved it soo much. I’m pretty well crying from laughing right now. OMG TWS strikes again. Fantabulous!

  4. If anyone wants to look it up, and hear the voices, (they’re rather amusing) its “There, Right There!” from Legally Blonde.

    Crazy like a /fox/!

    And thanks. I kind of thought someone/everyone would be a bit . . . pissed at their part.

  5. Pissed?! Heck no! Actually, that fit me surprisingly well for a song like that XD
    Yay for breaking out into random musical numbers!! That was awesome!! One of the most entertaining fics I’ve read in quite a while. Very nice. I love eet. 😀

  6. *laughs so hard I fall right out of my chair*

    I love how you got the Broadway musical effect, when it’s all typed. I AM somewhat disappointed that he’s gay *sits alone at 8:00 on Saturday 😥 *, but it’s still one of the funniest fics I’ve ever read!!! *goes back and reads it again*


  7. This is CoMpLeTeLy AmAzInG!!!!!And surprisingly IC. Creepy. Its like you’re watching me. *shifty eyed* This is one of my favorite fics EVER!!! I’m just happy i’m IN it! I saw less than .23 mistakes, and that’s ;pretty awesome. (NOTE; POINT 23. Not 23. Like, DECIMAL 23.) 😉

    That is actually something I’d do/ have done. 😆 That’s like cool. 😀

    Amazing work, TWS. I’d love an update/sequel. 🙂

  8. Oh, and I totally forgot to mention this, but I love the line about Bowser. XD

    He’s my second-favorite character from Mario Bros.! 😀


  9. I just watched a video of the number on YouTube. It really is surprising how much those people… are like us… o_o
    Brilliant idea.

  10. 🙂 Well. Every one copies me… *sniff*

    I’m kidding. But stll, its creepy how much we’re alike!!!

  11. I know, right? And I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not a blonde lawyer. And, no offense, but I doubt many of you have been jurors on a legit trial

    As for a sequal . . . I suppose I could do other’s LIKE this, with other songs/types of songs (likely still from musicals), but I can’t garuntee too many . . .

    Maybe you guys could write a few?! Id love to read them!

  12. Okay, here’s a serious one. It’s A-MAZ-ING.

    The SONG, not my FIC. My fic makes it seem sucky. I’m not that big an egotist -_-#

    But, yes, this is a bea-tatious musical, called Pippin, where my friends and I have decided all is awesome.

    Except Morning Glow. Morning Glow can can just rot in shame.

  13. Im forgotten. Poor me… And by you? TWS?? * sighs * I was gone for about 4 months…. But does the Silver Fox vanish so easily?

  14. where am I??? please can I be in this?

  15. Huh? What?

    No, I just chose semi-randomly. Silversong, Ohan, trust me, you were considered, I just had to play the part of casting director and say “WW(insert name)D?” and I figured Ohan would hurt someone (my main Yoshi-concren), and that SS wouldn’t care, and other people would . . .

    If I need you, I’ll use you, okay? I’ll do my best not to repeat. But, the only real-person narrative I’m doing is my own. I am NOT risking that kind of off-pissing on other people.

  16. Its alright! I know i was silent for a little while… don’t be mad… Don’t worry! Be happy!

  17. Oh my God… -dies-

    This was awesome!

  18. *revives* Thanks! Gotta suggestion?

  19. Yeah, I do!

    Although I’m not sure how you’ll do that one…

  20. Oh well. I probably WOULD hurt someone. 😆
    No, seriously.
    *people back away slowly*

  21. …Um…???? WHY is everyone from AF gay/lesbionic now?

  22. Ok why hadn’t I read that before?
    I love ur work TWS XD
    @Love child: I dunno it’s their choice isnt it?
    And mate I’m totally straight..not everyone..actually hardly nayone is gay/lesbionic

  23. […] There, Right There! has Teenagers by MCR, Silver, Ohan, cookieninja, BXA (she’s my partner in slashy crime [in MY mind, at least]) and a subliminal message all take major part. […]

  24. 😀 Wonderful chappie two!!! But… *sniff* No more SueStories??? 😥


    😀 Oh! I love chappy two! And… although you probably don’t care… I loved the description of Siver. 😉 I’m proud of her.

  25. Nah, I’m just a wittle tired of “OMFG, Minerva!!! She’s after Arty so we should all hate her fairly well-thought out character!!! Grrr!!!” It irks me because she, much like Kikyou and Rosalie Hale before her, is a good character. Terroble person, but good character. So, Sue away . . . I’ll just sit here and be irked.

    Thank you 🙂 Proud of her for not jumping, or proud of her for being about to shoot the Commander?

  26. Well… she’s a good Fangathering Ranger because she didn’t jump, and remained impassive. Annnnnd, she’s a good strategist because she knows how to easily make Root stop the singing. 😀 Well. Her longbow may be powerful, but my recurve is, too! 😀 We are both equal… sorta. 😀

    Well, the one sentance I spoke was IC. And this story is AWESOME. UPDATE!!!! I will 😥 if you don’t!
    (well, not really, but I will inside.)

  28. I have to speak in favor of slash fics. Artemis is just lucky that I never published my tentative A/F, or A/O for that matter.

    I love this story! You manage a whole musical thing with pure text!! 😀


  29. Oh please, me write terrible stories. Recently I have changed my ways, I MUST admit. Though my first story wasn’t that bad, just very… kiddish.
    Anyways, thank god you used Teenagers, I was waiting for some MCR to pop up SOMEWHERE. Now, to my MCR songfic that I haven’t even thought of yet.
    Great job TWS. I love chappy 3.

  30. ‘Twas absolutely a-mazing TWS. I am laughing so hard I am crying! Beautiful! I loved the Legally Blonde theme mixed with a musical. I could clearly picture everything in my head. As my reading teacher would say, “Wonderful imagery, and beautiful form. Bravo! Bravo! 5 stars!” Well, she doesn’t really say that, but I do. XD

  31. -gasps- I’d forgotten about this. The third chapter is awesome although it left me wanting to write more Artler…

    Ooh, and “BXA (she’s my partner in slashy crime [in MY mind, at least])”

    I feel so flattered! I
    ll be your partner. 🙂

  32. 😀 I still would lie OnE mOrE uPdAtE!!! Go TWS!!! WHOO HOO!!!!


  33. Hermione Fowl March 26th, 2010 at 6:50 am 33

    You rock, TWS. Your stories never fail to make me laugh.

  34. This is spooky. A gay Artemis? But I fell off my chair laughing anway.

  35. Ohansahyosheli May 17th, 2010 at 1:30 am 35

    Oh, lol. Continue!


  37. Alanna-Lena Zelen July 10th, 2010 at 12:11 pm 37

    Wow… I say wow *blinks* (yes, so good I log in *gasp*)

  38. 😀 Love this. I really, Really do. 🙂

  39. The first was by far the best. The second was my least fav. (but still awesome). 🙂 It’s stories like these that make me want to hunt you and bring you back here.

  40. I’m amazed how I have never come across this pice of geniusly crafted song fic before.

    I’ve never actually seen the legally blonde musical before and I never really knew why my friend liked it so much but NOW I see why.

    I loved the first it got me really hyped, the second was a little slow but good nonetheless. I knew the song to the thrid and it was weird how I was listening to the song in my head but also could imagine them singing so I felt really weird.

    5/5 it’s in the TOP TENS anyway but let’s secure it there 😀

    Marshmellow for awesomeness. 😀

  41. Please do more! And since you made this so funny, you get the… L.O Certificat of Random Funny-ness!!!

  42. Lotsa cursing. Lotsa random. Lotsa no sense. Have read a LONG time ago. Have been procrastinating on commenting pretty much… since I’ve joined the site, I’m ashamed to say. But I finally finished all of it… yah. Pretty humorous, and with the signature TWS impeccable grammar/spelling/punc/caps. Yeah. Feh.

  43. December Holly February 4th, 2011 at 9:54 am 43

    This was painfully funny, especially the first chapter. I looked up the song and almost split an organ laughing. In the same breath, Artler gives me the serious creeps.

    No mistakes that I see. Excellent job!


  44. The song fits so well I thought that you made it up. Chapter 1 is possibly the funniest thing I have ever read.
