I started this back in the GameFaqs boards, but somehow or another my third topic got modded, (after like 2 500 posts topics and the previous topic was like 300+ already >_>) So... Moved here for good.
Welcome back to those who were led here from the GameFaqs boards
And welcome to all new readers too! If you're interested to read my previous episodes follow the two links here:
That is if you're interested. There's a story arc in each of those threads by the way, just to make you more interested . A Magic Race arc in the first, and a Halloween Arc in the second.
EDIT!!!: Now those episodes can be viewed in the archive topic
Have lots to catch up so I think I'm doing massive posting today XD
<Koukou no Dissidia 012: The Official Intro>
Koukou no Dissidia is a comedy fanfic based on Dissidia duodecim characters studying in high school. KouKou is Japanese for high school and thus the official English translation will be (High School of Dissidia 012)
Koukou no Dissdia is the private division of the school of Sukia Enikusu (SE) where students are chosen from the Final Fantasy division of the school by the board of directors who remain a mystery to all the students. In this new semester more and more students are continually added into the division.
The second division of the school of SE is the Final Fantasy division where many other special students study in.
The school of SE has a third division where there are other students who study in. This division is near to Koukou no Dissidia.
The school of SE is divided into two where the main building is the Final Fantasy division which has a large student population. The second building is where Koukou no Dissidia resides as well as the third division of the school of SE.
This story follows the Cosmos class of Koukou no Dissidia and it depicts their everyday lives in school. The Cosmos class is a group of very special and capable students which the board of directors have chosen. There is also another class called the Chaos class which is the rival class of Cosmos class where the students are very powerful and quite devious.
So sit back and enjoy the school lives of this interesting bunch of characters!
Koukou no Dissidia 012 was originally called Dissidia 012: School Days but was changed so as to have originality. There were other suggestions for names such as The Class of Room 012 (by dachi) and Dissidia: Homeroom 012 (by SKEWER). Credits go to them.
Dissidia Duodecim belongs to Square Enix as well as the characters depicted in the story. Thus, the characters are by no means mine and all belong to Square Enix.

<Deck the Halls with Lots of Trouble>
(It was evening in the dorms. Miss Cosmos was looking around for her students)
Miss Cosmos: Looks like a lot of my students aren’t around…
(Just then Bartz and Zidane came around the corner)
Bartz: Hey Miss C!
Zidane: Are you looking for someone?
Miss Cosmos: Oh thank goodness! I was beginning to wonder if I could find anyone at all.
Zidane: Most of the students are probably out; it’s a Friday evening after all.
Bartz: So was there something that needs to be done?
Miss Cosmos: Well… There is a new student who is coming in from the FF division and I was wondering if you could help me show him to his room and give him a little tour. (Though I totally don’t trust these two…)
Zidane: No problem Miss Cosmos! We’ll do that for you! *nudges Bartz*
Bartz: Oh! Yes of course! Heehee
Miss Cosmos: Okay, hold on for a second.
(Miss Cosmos ran off to get the new student and came back with Vaan and his luggage)
Zidane: (Oh it’s him!)
Bartz: (DEM ABZ!!!)
Miss Cosmos: I’m sure you all have met him before. This is Vaan and he’s the new student.
Zidane: Hey there! (heehee I know exactly what to do with him)
Bartz: Haha welcome!
Miss Cosmos: Alright, then I’ll leave him to you two then. (God please let nothing bad happen)
(Miss Cosmos leaves the dorm to do some work)
Zidane: Alright Vaan, let’s put those luggage in your room first.
Bartz: And I’ll explain some stuff while we’re at that.
(They headed down the long corridor)
Bartz: Okay, so most of the Cosmos students live here, except for two of them. Lightning and Tidus who live with their families.
Vaan: Aww Tidus is not here?
Zidane: Well sometimes he stays here for a night or two.
Bartz: That’s when his dad gets so drunk he gets kicked out of the house.
(Just then some students came out of their rooms)
Firion: Hey there Zidane, Bartz.
Cecil: Oh! Who do we have here?
Kain: (DEM ABZ!!!)
Vaan: Hey there!
Zidane: This is Vaan, he’s our new classmate.
Firion: Oh yea! I’ve seen him before. He used to hang out with Tidus a lot.
Kain: Welcome to the Dissidia division then!
Cecil: Glad you could make it!
Vaan: Thanks guys!
Firion: Well we’ll see you all at class then, we’re going out for a bit.
Bartz: Alright! Take care!
(They walk further down and see a branch in the corridor)
Bartz: Down that hall is where the Chaos students live. In fact all of the Chaos students live here.
(They finally reach Vaan’s room)
Bartz: Alright, here’s your stop! Any questions?
Vaan: No not really, thanks for showing me the dorms.
Zidane: No problem at all… Hey Vaan, when you’re finished settling down could you come and look for us? We have something we would need you to do.
Vaan: Oh alright then.
Zidane: Then, we’ll see you haha!
(Vaan went into his room to unpack his stuff)
Vaan: Man this division is great! Lots of cool stuff and all the cool people who were from the FF division are all here! This will definitely be fun!
(Half an hour later Vaan finished packing and went to look for Zidane and Bartz. While he was walking down the halls he met a few other students)
Warrior of Light: Oh! You must be the new student. Welcome.
Onion Knight: Nice to see you again Vaan.
Terra: Hi there. (Oh gosh his abs!)
Vaan: Hey there! I see Lightning is here as well.
Lightning: Just doing some student council stuff, nothing much… I’m going home soon.
Warrior of Light: We’re just heading out, want us to show you around?
Vaan: Oh no need for that, Zidane and Bartz already did, thanks anyway.
Terra: (Oh gosh, them???)
Warrior of Light: Well it looks like you’re fine still… I mean okay that’s great. We’ll see you at class then.
(The group left the dorms)
Vaan: (Maybe I should look for their rooms…)
(Vaan found a room which had Zidane’s and Bartz’s names labeled on the door)
Vaan: Looks like this is the one. *knocks door*
Zidane: *opens the door* Hey! We were expecting you! Come in for a sec and we’ll talk.
Bartz: Hey there!
Vaan: *walks in* Nice room you got here.
Zidane: Alright, we asked you to come and look for us because we want you to join our secret group.
Bartz: Yea! And we need you to carry out an initiation first.
Vaan: Hey, that sounds cool.
Zidane: Great! Glad you are interested! Here’s a list of things you have to do, ask us any questions of you aren’t sure. *hands over a list*
Vaan: *looks through the list* There’s some really weird things here… But if I have to do it then Ii’ll do it.
Bartz: That’s the spirit!
Zidane: Great! Now run along! And make sure you finish all these within the evening. *pushes Vaan out*
Vaan: Hey wait! We haven’t talked much yet.
Zidane: Initiation first! Talk later! *pushed Vaan out the door and closes the door*
Bartz: Heeheehee… That was a great idea Zidane.
Zidane: Yea! Secret group, yea right! Although if he really does all these things, he will have my respect.
Bartz: Hahaha! But I wonder if he’ll be able to do that last one…
Zidane: Alright, once he’s on his way we’ll tail him.
(Vaan begins walking away and thinks about the list of things)
Vaan: (I’d better start this now… Okay first thing on the list…)
(Task 1: Ask a girl in the dorms out on a date [Just ask, the girl does not have to accept it])
Vaan: Oh there’s a list of girls provided. Let’s see. *looks through that list* Looks like Lightning is out, and that other girl who just left as well… Terra. Definitely not going to ask a Chaos girl out… So I guess it’s either Tifa or Shantotto… Hmm… I’ll go with Shantotto, since I think I failed asking Tifa out once…
(Vaan looks for Shantotto’s room)
Vaan: Ah, here it is. *knocks door*
Shantotto: *shouts from inside* I don’t feel like answering that go away. I’m not really in the mood today.
Vaan: *continues to knock* Erm… Shantotto? I need to ask you something, please just hear me out.
Shantotto: *opens the door* Who can it be at this hour, you determination is quite dour. Oh, it’s you, the student who is new.
Vaan: Well… I… want to ask…
Shantotto: What is it that you need to say? Spill it so that we may go our separate ways.
(Zidane and Bartz are around the corner)
Zidane: (He’s gonna do it!)
Vaan: Erm… will you go out on a date with me?
Shantotto: … … … Oh hohohoho! Sorry but I don’t mean to sound cold… But I’m just way too old!
Vaan: Oh, okay… thanks for your time anyway… By the way… Could you tell me how old are you if you may? (This rhyming is infectious…)
Shantotto: *opens her eyes wide* HOW DARE YOU ASK SUCH A THING??? I’LL BURN YOU TO CRISPS AND BLAST YOU TO BEIJING!!! *readies a spell*
Vaan: NONONO!!! I’M SORRY!!! *runs away*
Zidane: (HAHAHA!!! That was priceless!!!)
Bartz: (Heehee, he never learns… By the way… where’s Beijing?)
Zidane: (Never heard of it)
Vaan: Well I guess that is done, on to the next one. *checks list* … This is not good… How am I gonna do this? …
(Task 2: Steal a girl’s underwear)
(Vaan walks down the corridor pondering on how he can complete his task)
(Just then Tidus entered the dorms)
Vaan: Hey! Tidus!
Tidus: Vaan! You’re here! *runs over*
Vaan: Yea! I was just transferred here, I’ll be in your class from now on.
Tidus: That’s great! So… Whatcha doing?
Vaan: Doing this initiation thing so that I can enter Zidane’s secret group…
Tidus: He did? He never invited me…
Vaan: Would you like to help me? Then I’ll tell him you did the tasks with me and he’ll let you into the group.
Tidus: … Why not? Alright then let’s do this.
Vaan: By the way… Bartz told me you don’t stay here every time…
Tidus: Yea… My dad got so drunk today I got kicked out of the house…
(Vaan and Tidus walked past Tifa’s room and noticed the door was left ajar)
Tidus: That’s strange, I thought I saw Tifa on my way to the dorms.
Vaan: Then how come the door isn’t closed? (This is our chance!)
(Vaan hears the sound of a piano and peered into the room to look)
Cloud: *plays a tune on Tifa’s piano* … I love that tune. *stands up and walks over to Tifa’s dresser* …
(Received Orthopedic Underwear!)
Tidus: Vaan what is it?
Cloud: *gasps* *looks around* Who’s there?
Vaan: *opens the door wider* Erm… Hey there…
Cloud: What are you doing here??? Get out!!! (DEM ABZ!!!)
Tidus: Ooo it’s Cloud! Heehee! Now I know your little secret,
Cloud: No! Don’t tell Tifa! I’m warning you two! GET OUT NOW!!!
(Cloud throws Orthopedic Underwear at Vaan and Tidus)
Tidus: Hey we got it!
Cloud: H-Hey! Wait!!! Give that back!!! (Why the heck did I just do that???)
Vaan: Run Tidus run!!!
Tidus: Alright! Haste!!!
(Vaan and Tidus dash off leaving Cloud shell-shocked)
(Zidane and Bartz were witnessing from afar)
Zidane: This is getting better and better.
Bartz: Ooo. Naughty Cloud.
(Vaan and Tidus ran into the Chaos students’ dorm corridor)
Vaan: Think we lost him?
Tidus: I don’t know. But if we see him again, we’ll just run away.
Vaan: Right. Next on the list… Oh wow…
Dreams that never die
Masterpiece of Kayarine
(Task 3: TP a Chaos students’ room)
Tidus: Haha this should be fun!
Vaan: But how do we get so much paper?
Zidane: Need help Vaan?
Bartz: Haha yea! Everything going well?
Vaan: Hey guys! Tidus is helping me do the tasks as well. Can he join the group too?
Zidane: I see why not? Right Bartz? *nudges Bartz*
Bartz: Oh… Oh yea! Right!
Zidane: You need paper right?
Vaan: Yea! How’d you know?
Bartz: Well it looks like you still have a shoulder full of underwear hahaha!
Vaan: Oh gosh! *takes it off*
Zidane: I’ll take that. *takes underwear* (Heeheehee… Cloud shall be my slave)
Bartz: So… We managed to pick the lock on the janitor’s closet and found a box load of paper!
Vaan: Alright then! Let’s do this!
(Vaan and Tidus gathered the paper with Zidane’s and Bartz’s help)
Zidane: Alright. Have fun guys! Oh… might I suggest Exdeath’s room.
Vaan: Oh… alright.
(Vaan and Tidus brought the paper to Exdeath’s room)
Vaan: *tries to open the door* Hey, it’s open.
Tidus: Shh. Wait I think I hear snoring.
Vaan: Okay. Then we should do another room then.
Tidus: Alright, let’s do this one. *opens the neighboring door*
Vaan: Hmm… Garland’s room huh…
(They entered the room and started to TP the place)
Tidus: Tie some around the bedpost Vaan.
Vaan: Alright. Hey, look! A chocobo doll!
Tidus: That’s cute. Don’t forget to wrap that around with paper too.
Vaan: *looks up at the wall* That’s some weird motivational poster.
Tidus: “Knock them all down, they deserve it”… That’s Garland alright.
(Half an hour later the room was filled with paper)
Vaan: Mission accomplished!
Tidus: Alright! High five! *high fives Vaan*
Vaan: Okay, next on the list… Hey… *looks at Tidus*
Tidus: *looks at the next task* … You thinking what I’m thinking?
(Task 4: Tie a student to the flagpole)
(Vaan and Tidus sneaked into Exdeath’s room)
Tidus: Oh my gosh, he’s not wearing his armor.
Vaan: After this… let’s not tell anyone what we saw…
Tidus: Everyone would probably see it anyway...
(Vaan and Tidus carried Exdeath’s armor less body to the flagpole)
Vaan: Duct tape?
Tidus: Got it. *hands duct tape over*
(Vaan tapes Exdeath to the flagpole)
Vaan: Alright, that’s done.
(Zidane and Bartz ran over)
Zidane: Hey! You two are done with the fourth already?
Bartz: Man, we wanted to tape Squall to it instead.
Zidane: Oh well there’s always next time…
Bartz: Looks like you two are down to the last task.
Zidane: Yea! You guys would definitely need help with this one.
Bartz: Heehee. Exdeath looks like that experiment we did last time when we had to grow a little plant and tie it to a pole.
Tidus: Now you mention it… Yea! Hahaha
Vaan: Hurry up and let’s get that last tasks done with.
(The guys headed back into the dorms, leaving Exdeath stuck there)
(Not long later Squall walked by)
Exdeath: Zzz… *suddenly wakes up* … *Yawns*… Wha… AAAAHHHH!!! WHAT AM I DOING HERE???
Exdeath: HEY! DON’T LOOK!!!
Squall: … (Should I help him?) … Nah… *walks off* (He didn’t help me the last time)
Exdeath: Hey wait! You don’t mean you still remembered the last time??? Wait!!! Don’t goooo!!!
(Back to the four guys)
Vaan: Are you sure about this last task…
Zidane: Trust me, me and Bartz did this before.
Bartz: Besides! It’s a Friday evening! Barely anyone walks around the halls at this time.
Tidus: This is embarrassing…
(Task 5: Butt slide down the dorm hallway and shouting random stuff. [Butt naked])
(Zidane and Bartz filled the dorm hallway with soapy water which they prepared)
Zidane: The janitor’s closet sure is useful.
Bartz: This is priceless.
Tidus: What if someone walks by the front door? We’re sliding past it aren’t we?
Zidane: Like we said, it’s a Friday evening! Don’t worry. And you guys will be sliding right into the shower room at the end of the hall so no one would see you.
Bartz: *points at the open shower room door way at the end of the long hallway* Yup, no worries.
Vaan: That’s not really the point…
Zidane: Alright, time for the final task. Let us give you two a push.
Bartz: Have fun!
Tidus: Gah… The floor is so cold.
Zidane: Okay, one… two… three… Don’t forget to shout random stuff!
(With all their strength, Zidane and Bartz gave Vaan and Tidus a big push)
Vaan: Erm… I’M CAPTAIN BASCH FON RONSENBURG OF DALMASCA!!!
Tidus: Hahaha! That IS random! Erm... UNGAHHHH!!!
(Meanwhile in Mateus’ room)
(Vaan and Tidus continued to slide down the hallway. Just then as they passed by the main entrance, someone was just entering the dorms)
Miss Cosmos: I hope nothing bad has happened to Vaan yet… Those two can sure be trouble… Oh gosh now I’m totally regretting leaving him to them…
(At that moment Vaan and Tidus slid past)
Vaan: I’M CAPTAIN BASCH FON RONSENBURG OF DALMASCA!!!
Miss Cosmos: *gasps* What… have I done…? *faints*
Vaan: Uhh… Was that?
Tidus: Oh no…
Vaan: Were almost at the end!
(Vaan and Tidus were about to reach the shower room when someone just came out)
Kuja: That was a fabulous bath.
Tidus: WATCH OUT!!!
(Vaan and Tidus crashed into Kuja causing Kuja to drop his towel and ending them up in compromising positions)
Vaan: … Wha…
Tidus: *looks at Kuja* *gasps*
Kuja: You naughty boys! You two are making me blush! Oh hohoho!!!
(Zidane and Bartz ran over)
Bartz: What are we going to do about Miss C?
Zidane: We’ll worry about that later! *sees Kuja* OH MY GOD!!!
Bartz: (0.0) We have just been scarred for life…
(Not long after, Mr Chaos came)
Mr Chaos: Oh you boys are in trouble! But I liked that! Hahaha! Especially taping Exdeath to the pole!
(Back at the flagpole)
Exdeath: … Anyone?... HELP ME!!!
(And thus Vaan and Tidus have finished all tasks mostly together)
Zidane: Congrats! You two passed!
Bartz: Welcome to our initially non-existent club!
Zidane: I must say you two inspired us to do so much more.
Mr Chaos: Hey! I’m here you know? (Though I’m quite interested to see what they’ll do next)
Vaan: … Zidane… You mean you lied to me?
Zidane: Pretty much.
Vaan: … DON’T LISTEN TO ZIDANE’S LIES!!!
Tidus: You have well-defined abs…
Everyone else: (0.0)
Mr Chaos: That’s ***
-And thus Tidus said the most shocking thing ever-

<Day of Feast and Fun>
(Few days ago during homeroom)
Miss Cosmos: Alright class, Thanksgiving is coming up and for this year, Principal Bahamut says that we should celebrate it together as a division!
Warrior of Light: Err… division?
Firion: What? Including the Chaos class?
Miss Cosmos: Yes, you’re right. Is something wrong?
Squall: Honestly? Lots.
Vaan: Aww, come on! It’ll be fun!
Shantotto: Oh hohoho! I guess you still have no idea, how much you can possibly fear.
Miss Cosmos: Come now class, this day only comes once a year! Plus I’ll give you all a treat if you all are willing to work well with them.
Terra: Work well? You mean…
Miss Cosmos: Principal Bahamut said that we should have a cultural exchange this year and I think it’s a fabulous suggestion. What you all have to do is work with the Chaos students who come from the same world as you, and bring some food which comes from your world, though if you have trouble getting those, just bringing food will be fine.
(There’s a slight grumble throughout the class)
Onion Knight: I have to work with her?… I mean him? (Argh I’m still confused with that)
Zidane: Oh bother…
Bartz: I think I know what to bring.
Tidus: … I’d probably ask my dad then.
Lightning: Looks like Tidus, Shantotto and I have to work alone then.
Miss Cosmos: Oh yes, that’s right I hope you three won’t mind.
Shantotto: Not at all it will be fun! I’ll show you my cooking skills are second to none.
Miss Cosmos: Very good then.
Kain: Hey Cecil, I’m not sure what to bring.
Cecil: Don’t worry I’m sure brother will think of something.
Cloud: Looks like this might turn out bad…
Tifa: Nonsense Cloud, I’m sure we’ll get something good.
Cloud: If he brings pears…
Tifa: I guess that’s a given, we have no choice there.
Warrior of Light: Well I hope this can be a success…
(The Cosmos students were troubled by the fact they had to work with the Chaos students. What will they bring?)
(On Thanksgiving day, the time for the celebration, the students brought food to the hall which the teachers helped Miss Cosmos set up nicely)
Teacher Quen: Quina very excited students bringing food. Quina curious what students will bring. Quina made some food too.
Miss Cosmos: Thank you all for your help.
Mr Garamonde: It was my pleasure to help thee Miss Cosmos.
Mr Ornitier: Yes, no problem at all.
Mr Chaos: The students should come any minute now. (This might be a good night for trouble to stir, hahaha)
Miss Maria: We’ll be back later.
Professor Tellah: Yes, we’ve got some work to do in the other division too.
Miss Cosmos: Alright see you all soon.
(All the teachers except Miss Cosmos and Mr Chaos left)
(The students began to arrive, bringing food which were supposedly from their own worlds)
Terra: Miss Cosmos…
Miss Cosmos: Oh Terra! You are the first to arrive. Where’s Kefka?
Terra: … He’s coming here soon…
Onion Knight: Eeee!!! It’s coming!
Cloud of Darkness: Don’t be such a scaredy cat.
Kefka: Heeheehee! May I present a special friend of mine!
Miss Cosmos: Who is that???
Terra: It’s one of the waiters from the Phantom Train in our world, Kefka hired him to be our waiter…
(The Ghost Waiter was carrying a few trays of food, and he set them on the table)
Miss Cosmos: Well, okay, what do we have here?
Terra: Well, I couldn’t think of what to bring, but this was what I used to make when I took care of the children back in my world.
(Miss Cosmos sees a tray filled with sandwiches)
Miss Cosmos: Well that’s nice, though why are the sides burnt slightly.
Kefka: I hate crust so I destroyed them!
Mr Chaos: That’s the spirit!
(The other tray however was filled with some mysterious food)
Miss Cosmos: May I ask what it that?
Terra: It’s the food served on the train, though I’m not sure what they are… But it’s edible.
Kefka: Ohohoh!!! I brought something else special too! Eeeheeheehee! I’ll show later.
Onion Knight: We brought lots of food too! Though… Famfrit. That was the first time I saw you cry.
Cloud of Darkness: Grrr. It’s not my fault!
(Onion Knight was carrying a bowl of salad)
Miss Cosmos: That looks nice… Wait… this is filled with onions.
Onion Knight: Yup! Is there a problem?
Cloud of Darkness: Bigger than you can ever imagine…
(Cloud of Darkness on the other had was carrying a tray of Onion Rings)
Mr Chaos: That’s an overkill… Boy my breath is going to stink tonight.
(Not long more students arrived)
Kuja: Miss Cosmos, Mr Chaos, you both should try these! They are fabulous!
Zidane: It’s a delicacy back in Gaia.
(The two brought lots of Gyshal Pickles)
Miss Cosmos: Well, okay just one bite. *tries a small piece* You two are right! This is good!
Mr Chaos: Mmm indeed. Alright you two, go and put those on the table.
Kuja: Alright! We did it! High five Zidane!
Zidane: No… this is the tenth time we’re doing that.
Kuja: You’re so cold Zidane!
(As the two settled down, Tifa, Cloud and Sephiroth came)
Tifa: Miss Cosmos, I hope you don’t mind, but I brought some drinks from the place I used to work.
Miss Cosmos: Are those alcoholic?
Tifa: No of course not. I just brought these to make mocktails.
Sephiroth: And I brought these.
Mr Chaos: As expected… Though some of them don’t look like pears.
Cloud: Those are Banora Apples… But they were hard to find, since the place it came from…
Sephiroth: Oh well. By the way, those are called Dumbapples stupid.
Cloud: You’re the Dumbapple, idiot…
Miss Cosmos: Oh Squall, Ultimecia, you both are here too!
Squall: Miss Cosmos…
Ultimecia: It was a pathetik search… This was all we kould get…
Miss Cosmos: Oh my… Hotdogs?
Mr Chaos: What the?
Ultimecia: Pathetik, is pathetik. Though it was funny when you got the school to protekt those hotdogs while Galbadia was attacking Balamb
Squall: Hey! You saw that?
Ultimecia: I watched everything from the future.
Squall: Creepy… in a way.
(Just then the doors swung open again)
Mateus: Hahaha! May I present food for an Emperor.
Firion: Argh when did I became your servant…
Miss Cosmos: Oh my, those are high grade beef and fish!
Mateus: Naturally these are not hard for me to get. Though this fool insisted we put rose garnish inside.
Firion: Hey, they’d taste way better with that!
(The other students just stared at the food that those two brought)
Terra: Oh gosh, those two really outdid all of us.
Onion Knight: I’ll say…
Cloud: Like I cared…
Tifa: Anyone up for a first drink?
Kefka: Me! Me! I want my water to be green like poison! EeeHeeheehee!
(The table began to fill up with lots of delicious food)
Lightning: Miss Cosmos, I think these might need to go to the fridge first.
Miss Cosmos: Oh sure no problem, what did you bring?
Lightning: My sister Serah helped me make it. It’s fried ice cream, something which reminded her of our home Cocoon, a well sheltered society. It’s hard on the outside and soft on the inside which what she describes to be like our homeland.
Zidane: It also something that describes you my fair lady.
Lightning: Don’t make me punch you…
(Lightning proceeds to put them in the pantry fridge, ignoring Zidane’s gestures)
(Just then Bartz rushed in)
Bartz: Am I late???
Miss Cosmos: Not at all Bartz, there’s still plenty of time.
Bartz: Phew… Where’s Tidus? He was gonna help me bring something.
Exdeath: *pant pant* Stop running so fast you nitwit!
Bartz: It’s not my fault you’re as slow as a walking tree.
Mr Chaos: Well what have you two got.
Exdeath: I got the fruit! *holds up a Cornucopia*
Bartz: Hold on, I’m still waiting for Tidus.

(Just then Tidus also rushed in with Jecht)
Miss Cosmos: Oh my, Mr Jecht is here too!
Jecht: Yea, I’m just helping my son out.
Tidus: Here you go Bartz. I caught them while I was practicing Blitzball back home, they’re alive and fresh still! *holds up two lobsters*
Bartz: Alright! Gimme!
(Just as Tidus handed over the lobsters, the two lobsters retaliated and wriggled they’re way free)
Tidus: Hey they’re getting away!
Kekfa: I’ll stop them! Eeeheehee! Destroy!
(Kefka casted Fire on the lobsters which cooked them almost immediately)
Exdeath: DURHURHUR! Those lobsters got served!
Bartz: With Cheese Biscuits and Mashed Potatoes! *holds up cheese biscuits and mashed potatoes*
Miss Cosmos: Well, Tidus what else did you bring?
Tidus: Well, my dad…
Jecht: I brought Shoopuf Milk! You should try it.
Tidus: Dad said once that he would give up drinking and never drink anything stronger than this.
Miss Cosmos: Right… (Looks like he totally didn’t keep his word…)
Jecht: Well, I guess I’ll be going now. You take care of my boy!
Miss Cosmos: Yes, Mr Jecht. (He reeks of booze…)
Cecil: Miss Cosmos, I hope this is okay.
Kain: We took some time to think of what to bring.
Golbez: I think this would be quite nice.
(The three of them were holding lots of special looking cheese)
Bartz: Ha! I knew it! The moon IS made of Cheese!
Kain: These are from the cows in the kingdom. I don’t even come from the moon.
Bartz: But they are! *points at Cecil and Golbez*
Vaan: Miss Cosmos we’re here! I made a huge omelette. I love eggs after all.
Cloud: *gasps* (The secret to DEM ABZ!)
Squall: (Gotta have more of those eggs!)
Gabranth: I brought vegetables to counter that. Greens are what drive me!
Miss Cosmos: Alright alright no need to get all emotional. Go on and settle down.
Warrior of Light: Sorry I’m late Miss Cosmos.
Miss Cosmos: Oh not at all. What did you two bring?
Garland: Hahaha! You should see this.
Warrior of Light: We kind of just got the vegetables which grew back in our world and made them into coleslaw.
Garland: Isn’t that generic much? Hahaha! Sidney, Sidney always the same.
Warrior of Light: Like you gave any ideas…
Garland: Hey, I helped you cut those vegetables!
Warrior of Light: More like constantly knocking them down from the counter…
Garland: What? It’s fun.
(Just then a familiar laugh could be heard)
Shantotto: I do apologize! But I had to improvise.
(Shantotto is carrying a roasted bird)
Bartz: That smells good! What bird is that?
Shantotto: Oh hohoho! Don’t you know? It’s a Chocobo!
Bartz: *gasps* Good Lord… *faints*
Squall: Bartz! Wake up!
Mr Chaos: Boy, is she serious???
Shantotto: Oh hohoho! I said that all for jest. The consumption of Chocobos is what I detest!
Miss Cosmos: I assume that is a Turkey Shantotto.
Shantotto: Of course, you are right. *looks at Bartz* Oh my, looks like he got a little too uptight.
Bartz: *wakes up* What happened… *sees the roasted Turkey* Boko!!! *faints again*
Miss Cosmos: Zidane, please be a dear and calm him down.
Zidane: Right. Bartz *slaps Bartz* snap out of it!
Mr Chaos: Looks like all the students are here.
Miss Cosmos: Yes and you all did a wonderful job, as you can see this fabulous spread before us. Looks like all of you are in for a treat!
(All the students cheered)
Miss Cosmos: Alright, you all can start eating while I’ll go get the treats.
Mr Chaos: She makes good pumpkin pie and angel cake.
Warrior of Light: Alright let’s begin.
Mateus: Hold on. I’ll say when we’re ready to begin.
(Everyone stares at Mateus)
Mateus: Alright, fine begin eating you peasants.
(The students began eating)
Sephiroth: *quietly laughs* Time to give this to Cloud. *holds up one of the pears*
Squall: *notices his cellphone vibrated* … A text message.
Cloud: *looks over* Ooo who’s it from?
Squall: Mind your own business… (It’s from Rinoa)
Cloud: Come now. *bends over to see*
(Just then Sephiroth threw the pear in Clouds direction, but he missed Cloud as he bent over and the pear hit Exdeath instead)
Exdeath: Hey! Who did that?
Exdeath: It was you, wasn’t it Bartz?!
Bartz: What? I did no nothing!
Exdeath: Grrr *picks up the pear* Take this!!!
Bartz: Whoa! *avoids the flying pear*
(The pear flew and smashed right into Cloud of Darkness’ plate causing food flying into both Cloud of Darkness and Ultimecia)
Cloud of Darkness: Why you?!
Ultimecia: You are so dead… *picks up pear*
Mateus: Let me help you with that *takes the pear* Take that!
(Mateus throws the pear back at Exdeath, but his aim was so bad that it hit Kain instead who was a few seats away)
Kain: Hey! Watch it!
Ultimecia: Argh. Your aim is so bad! This time I’ll hit him.
(Ultimecia takes the bowl of salad with lots of Onions and aimed it at Exdeath)
Exdeath: Whoa! *dodges*
Onion Knight: It’s heading towards Terra!
Terra: YAAAA!!! *creates a barrier*
(The salad bowl hits the barrier which causes the vegetables to scatter all over the students nearby)
Gabranth: ARGH!!! This is WAR!!! *takes up his own vegetables and throws back randomly across the table*
Mr Chaos: … This is fun… Though I should be moving out of this battlefield right about now…
(Just then one of the vegetables Gabranth threw hit Mr Chaos)
Gabranth: *gasps* Oh no!
Mr Chaos: You!!! (This is fun!)
(Mr Chaos takes the vegetable and throws it, but he aimed at Sephiroth instead)
Golbez: You got what you deserve, I saw you start it.
Sephiroth: Shut up! *takes his cup with Shoopuf milk and pours it over Golbez*
Kefka: FOOD FIGHT!!! *takes up the Turkey and hurls it across the table*
(Just then all the Chaos students quickly stood up and did as Kefka said. They start picking up food and throwing them at each other)
Squall: *gets hit by the Turkey and drops his phone* Hey! *quickly bends down to retrieve his phone*
Cecil: Hey! You all should stop that! *changes to dark knight* No way! This is fun! *starts throwing as well*
Zidane: (This is so tempting… should I join in? No I shouldn’t…)
Kuja: Take that brother! *hits Zidane with a Gyshal Pickle*
Zidane: That’s it! *throws back Gyshal Pickle at Kuja*
Firion: *gets hit in the face by a bowl* Hey! I can’t see!!!
Onion Knight: Terra! Look out!
(Terra is still holding up her barrier)
Tifa: Stop it you all!
Shantotto: I do say! What is all this childish play?!
Sephiroth: Oh Cloud~! *continuously throws pears*
Cloud: Oh no… *gets hit by multiple pears* Aaaahhh!!!
Bartz: YAAAA!!!! *throws mashed potatoes at Exdeath*
Exdeath: DURHURHUR! You’ve got to do better than that!
Kefka: Eeeheeheehee!!! Time for my special surprise!!! *takes out his special food from before* EXDEATH!!! EAT TURTLE SOUP!!!
Exdeath: NOOOOO!!! I HATE TURTLES!!! *gets splashed with Turtle Soup*
(Tidus and Vaan are hiding under the table)
Vaan: I think we’re safe here.
Tidus: I hope so…
(Just then Kefka looks under the table)
Kefka: Eeeheeheehee!!! I see you!!! *throws food from Phantom Train at them*
(Back up at the table)
Kain: *quietly laughs* (This is for you Cecil…) *takes a Banora apple and throws it at the back of Cecil’s head*
Dark Knight Cecil: Hey! Who did that???
(Just then Teacher Quen came in)
Teacher Quen: *sees the spectacle* Quina see flying food. Quina should catch food. Food cannot be wasted.
(Teacher Quen quickly runs around catching and eating all the food which were about to fall out of the table)
(The mayhem continued as food are constantly flying around the table hitting the students)
Firion: I still can’t see!!!
Cloud: PAYBACK SEPHIROTH!!!
Sephiroth: *gets rained on by food* No! Nonono! NOOOO!!!! Mommy…
Garland: I’ll knock you all down with this Cornucopia!!!
Zidane: Take that Kuja!!!
Kuja: No more brother!!! That’s enough!!!
Kefka: I GOT SANDWICH ON MY BOOTS!!!
Ultimecia: You all are pathetik aimers!
Cloud of Darkness: This is getting crazier by the minute! My tentacles are getting restless! *tentacles begin to take fruits and throw them everywhere as well*
Kain: Take some more of that Cecil!
Dark Knight Cecil: Who’s the wise guy who keeps throwing at me???
Warrior of Light: … This is quite enough…
Lightning: This is getting annoying… Too annoying…
(Just then Lightning stands up and slams the table)
Lightning: STOP IT AND SIT DOWN! ALL OF YOU!!!
(Everyone was stunned and turned to look. All they saw was Lightning’s menacing expression, an aura of anger radiated from her. They all quickly sat down)
Warrior of Light: Couldn’t have done it better myself.
Lightning: Now all of you clean this up and eat like civilized students!!!
(Without a word everyone did what they were told)
Zidane: She sure is like fried ice cream!
Bartz: Hard on the outside but soft on the inside!
Lightning: You two. Shut up!
Zidane and Bartz: Yes ma’am.
(After a long trip to the pantry, Miss Cosmos finally came back)
Miss Cosmos: *smiles* Good to see you all behaving so well. Here’s the treat.
(Everyone still remained silent)
Miss Cosmos: … What happened here? … It feels like a funeral…
Mr Chaos: Oh you don’t need to know, everything is fine… *pretends nothing went wrong*
Warrior of Light: It’s fine Miss Cosmos. Come on and sit down or you’ll miss out on the food.
Miss Cosmos: *chuckles* Alright. Oh and the waiter Kefka brought was indeed handy!
????: … *holding the pumpkin pie and angel cake*
Tidus: *gasps* Is it still Halloween?! Happy Halloween!!!
Tidus: … Oh! Happy Thanksgiving too!!!
-And thus Tidus forgot what day they were celebrating-

<A Taste for Talent Part 1>
(It’s the day of the talent contest which has been decided to be held at the FF division. The Dissidia division students are making their way there in a bus as well as the SE division students)
Terra: This is so exciting! This is the first time we’re performing outside of our practice!
Tifa: Yikes! I’m getting nervous.
Onion Knight: Don’t worry about that, we’ll rock the stage for sure!
Tidus: Yea but first we have to make it past the preliminaries.
Bartz: No sweat! Two of the student judges are from our division. We have the upper hand!
Shantotto: Oh hohoho! Don’t keep your hopes up dear! Even though I’m your classmate, my decision still has to be sincere!
Bartz: I would have thought so…
Gabranth: Grr… Why must I be the judge???
Lightning: We’re sorry, we were shorthanded at the moment and you seemed to be a more sane and neutral person than anyone else we could think of.
Warrior of Light: Plus your record of participation in school activities is almost empty, we’re helping you fill it up a bit.
Gabranth: … I still don’t like it…
Tidus: Hey, how come the rest of the Dissidia students are here?
Zidane: Me? I might be helping out in an act later, or I might be doing one too.
Firion: Same here, I’m doing a knife throwing act this year.
Bartz: Hey! That sounds fun… Yet dangerous at the same time.
Cecil: We’re here to support I guess.
Kain: Yea, and some of the Chaos students are performing as well.
Mateus: Hahaha! That’s nice of you to notice!
Tidus: What are you going to perform Mateus?
Ultimecia: That is a surprise dear boy. *laughs*
Mateus: Yes, quite right.
Kefka: I’m gonna do some comedy! Eeeheeheehee!!!
Kuja: You all are no match for my talent! My recital will leave everyone yelling for more! Hahaha!
Exdeath: No way! You’re so boring, you even put trees to sleep!
Kuja: *gasps* You just don’t understand fine art!
Cloud of Darkness: Well I’m just here to see them screw up.
Golbez: Same here! Hahaha!
Garland: Nothing better than to see people fall on stage when they get nervous! HAHAHA!
Sephiroth: … *stares at Cloud* *grins* (If I’m not wrong I left him a treat in the piano back in that school. I hope he gets it this time.)
Cloud: … I feel like I’m being watched… (Maybe I should play the piano when I get there. I used to love practicing that tune there.)
(Over at the end of the bus, Squall is sitting quietly reading the messages on his phone)
Vaan: *walks to the back* Hey Squall, you’ve been quiet all this time. What’s wrong?
Squall: … Nothing… Nothing at all.
Vaan: Oh come on! You’ve been staring at that the whole trip! Let me see! *snatches phone*
Squall: Hey! Give it back!
Vaan: It’s from Rinoa! Heehee!
(The message read: Dear Squall, how have you been? I missed you so much since you moved to that division, but I’m excited that I’ll get to see you again in the coming festival. Oh yes. I signed us up for the talent contest, I hope you don’t mind doing a duet performance with me this time. I’ve been practicing this song for ages and I know you can play it on the piano. Please don’t back out okay? <3 Rinoa)
Vaan: Ooo! Performing with your precious girlfriend I see
Squall: Shut up… I can’t disappoint her like that. Besides she’s not my girlfriend… (At least not yet…)
Vaan: (Gosh… He’s clueless with the girls. I bet he doesn’t even know about Lightning’s feelings for him)
(The buses arrived at the FF division and the students head into the school)
Warrior of Light: Alright, hold on. Students who are participating in the talent contest please follow Lightning. Those who are just here for support, you are free to roam for a while but be in the Auditorium in two hours time. Shantotto and Gabranth, follow me while I get the other student judges.
(At the moment, Rinoa came running to Squall)
Rinoa: Squall! You made it!
Lightning: (So that’s her…)
Squall: Yea… Let’s just get this over with…
Rinoa: Right… *turns to looks at the rest of the Dissidia division students*
Terra: Hey! It’s Rinoa!
Tifa: Hey there!
Rinoa: Hi~! *waves*
Ultimecia: … (Something’s odd about her…)
Rinoa: Come on Squall, let’s go!
Bartz: And so the competition begins.
Zidane: What are you saying Bartz?
Vaan: I think I know, heehee.
(The students headed off for their separate ways)
(Zidane, Vaan, Cecil and Kain headed off on their own to venture the school)
Zidane: Man. It’s been a long time since I’ve walked here!
Cecil: Yea, I wonder what I missed this past year.
Kain: I don’t think you missed much really, everything went on normally.
Vaan: Except the fact that since all the most notorious students went into Chaos’ class, things were much quieter here.
Zidane: I would expect that at least haha!
(They walk down the halls but there were barely any students walking around)
Vaan: It’s quiet here.
Kain: It’s most probably because the FF students are still having lessons.
Zidane: Hey! Look! *points at the notice board*
Kain: Hmm… There are many notices about events going on at the school festival… Let’s see… There’s a beauty pageant?
Vaan: Open to all students from all divisions…
Zidane: That’s interesting…
Cecil: *changes to dark knight* Wait… Zidane. You’re not thinking…
Zidane: Oh… (heehee) But I am… Anyone got a pen?
Dark Knight Cecil: I see where this is going. Here.
Zidane: Alright. Let’s see now. Ter…ra… Ti…fa… Light… ning… There.
Dark Knight Cecil: What about Shantotto?
Vaan: No! She’ll rage much more than Terra if we did that!
Zidane: He’s right. Besides, all I want is to see these three girls on stage. Heeheehee.
Kain: Somehow, I think this might lead to some trouble…
Zidane: Nonsense! What’s the worse that could happen?
(The Chaos students who were not performing headed straight for the Auditorium to get good seats)
Garland: We can see people fall best from here!
Cloud of Darkness: Quite right, now I wonder if they’ll even make it past the preliminaries *laughs*
Exdeath: Oh Famfrit, your tongue is so sharp!
Cloud of Darkness: Call me that again and I’ll send you to the void.
Exdeath: The void you speak of is false for only I know of the true VOID!
Golbez: There they go again… Bunch of Voidheads…
Sephiroth: … (There’s the piano on the stage… Now where is Cloud…)
(Meanwhile at backstage, Cloud tries to get to the piano. However Lightning runs over to stop him)
Lightning: Hey Cloud, you can’t go there yet.
Cloud: But… I wanna play the piano…
Lightning: You can do it after the Talent Contest okay?
Cloud: Alright… I’ll go find the others then…
(Cloud went to look for Cecil and the rest but had to go to the bathroom first)
Cloud: *comes out of the cubicle* … Huh?
(Cloud sees Tidus at the sink)
Cloud: Hey Tidus. What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be at the preliminaries?
(Tidus didn’t say a word and walked off)
Cloud: … What’s up with him?
(Over at the Performing Arts room, the students await their turn outside the room)
Terra: There sure are a lot of contestants this year.
Tifa: Ahh I’m getting nervous again…
Onion Knight: By the way, who are the other judges?
Firion: I think their names were Genesis and Raffaello…
(There were many students from all the divisions waiting for their turn)
Aira: Good luck this year Maya!
Maya: Same here! But you know we are competitors in the area of dance…
Aira: I don’t mind, I’ll just do my best.
Shea: Should we really go on with this?
Ayuta: It’ll be fine Shea, just lighten up.
Zorn: Where is Zidane?
Thorn: He owes us big time!
(Just then Zidane came running)
Zidane: Hey guys I’m sorry I wanted to walk around first. So, what am I supposed to do?
Zorn: Just be our third person.
Thorn: You should be good at acrobatics, I know that.
Zorn: Really? Do you?
Thorn: Really, I do!!!
Zidane: Right… *looks over at Terra and Tifa* *grins*
Onion Knight: Hey, stop staring at the girls like that.
Zidane: Okay okay…
Bartz: Gosh… When will it be our turn?
Tidus: I don’t know… Those two have been in there for ages!
(Just then the door opens)
Mateus: That was fabulous hahaha!
Ultimecia: Quite right. *glares at Squall and Rinoa* …
Rinoa: Don’t worry Squall! We’ll get them!

(Raffaello comes out to call in the next participant)
Raffaello: Alright… Next up is Riko Kupenreich.
(Just then a bunch of moogles jostled their way through)
Moogle Henchman #1: Move aside! Kupo!
Terra: Oh! How cute!
Moogle Henchman #2: Don’t make us hurt you! Kupo!
Terra: *gasps* How mean!
Riko: Riko will own this! Kupo!
(Riko heads into the room and his henchmen wait outside)
(Not long later there was a huge explosion)
Tifa: What happened?!
(The door opens and Riko comes out of the room)
Riko: Riko did well! Kupo!
Raffaello: *coughs* We said before no juggling of bombs!
Riko: Riko does what he likes! Kupo!
Raffaello: Well you’re not making it in. Next! Kefka!
Kefka: Eeeheeheehee! *enters the room*
(Kefka enters and stands in front of the judges)
Raffaello: You can start now.
Kefka: And now for my comedy act. *clears throat* Which is better? Poison or Barbecue?
Kefka: I don’t know! But nothing beats the sweet music of hundreds of voices screaming in unison! Uwee-hee-hee!
Gabranth: … There he goes…
Kefka: Oh oh! Why do you think Oppose rhymes with Dispose? *laughs maniacally again*
Kefka: Wait you say! Do I look like a waiter to you??? *laughs again*
Shantotto: I must say, that was quite a sad display…
Genesis: You have neither the gift of comedy, nor the gift of the goddess. You may leave now.
Kefka: Aww Phooey!
(Raffaello calls for the next contestant as Kefka leaves)
Kefka: You all better watch out for your water!!!
Gabranth: *spits out the water he was drinking*
Raffaello: Alright… next up is Terra, and her band.
Onion Knight: Finally!
Tifa: (Breathe… breathe…)
Tidus: Oh boy… I think I need to go to the bathroom…
Bartz: Could you do that later?
Tidus: … Alright…
(The band enters the room and began to set up their instruments)
(Few moments later)
Terra: Alright, we’re ready!
Raffaello: Alright, you all may begin.
Terra: Okay, this is a song which we recently learnt. I hope you all will like it. Ready team?
The rest: Yea!!!
Tidus: Alright! One, two three GO!
(The band started to play. Although they started a little off, the got back into the tune and left the judges at the edge of their seats)
(At the end of the performance the judges applauded them)
Genesis: Ah, such magnificent talent the lot of you have!
Shantotto: Oh hohoho! That is quite right! I think you all could win without much fight.
Gabranth: … Indeed that kept me wanting for more.
Raffaello: Congratulations, all of you are making it into the final round!
(The band looked at each other in awe)
Onion Knight: Alright! That’s great!
Tifa: Thank you so much!
Tidus: Let’s go guys! We gotta prepare for the final round!
Terra: Yes, let’s.
(The band left the room to prepare for the final round)
Zidane: You guys made it? That’s awesome!
Firion: Great job!
Raffaello: Squall and Rinoa, you two are up next.
Terra: Good luck you two.
Rinoa: See ya!
(The preliminary round continues. All of the Cosmos students managed to make it to the final round along with, Mateus with Ultimecia, Kuja and other FF and SE students)
(Half an hour before the final round outside the Auditorium)
Kain: So you all made it into the final round?
Cecil: Hey that’s great!
Vaan: I’m looking forward you your performance Squall.
Squall: Yea… whatever…
(Warrior of Light comes out of the backstage door)
Warrior of Light: Alright, the contest finalist can now enter backstage while the other students can head to the audience seats.
Kain: Looks like we have to go.
Cecil: Good luck guys!
Rinoa: Oh Squall, I think I’m done-… I mean… I need to be somewhere first. Just wait here okay?
Squall: … Okay.
(Rinoa heads off)
Ultimecia: Squall… There’s something I need to tell you.
Squall: … What is it? …
Ultimecia: That girl… Rinoa… She seemed… different… just be careful.
Squall: *watches Rinoa run off* (Can’t be…)
(Just as Rinoa ran around the corner, her appearance changed)
Brown haired lady: Alright you can let her go now…
Green haired girl: … *lets go of Rinoa*
Rinoa: What are you planning? You… you fiend!
Brown haired lady: My, my no need to get all upset now. All I did was conduct a little observation on those students, nothing much. Call it whim if you may. (For now…)
Rinoa: Hmph, wait till they hear about this!
Brown haired lady: Oh but they won’t! You wouldn’t want something to happen to your Squall would you? Besides, I helped you enter the final round of the contest. You should thank me for that!
Rinoa: … Thanks but I could have done that whole thing on my own without your help you meanie!
Green haired girl: Enough… *charges magic*
Brown haired lady: Now now, no need to be all hasty. You will keep quiet of this. And I will need your spot in that…
Rinoa: Whatever! Take it! As long as you don’t hurt Squall!
Brown haired lady: Oh I won’t… (Not me of course)
(Back outside the Auditorium)
Cloud: Hey Tidus, what was with just now at the bathroom?
Cloud: You were there weren’t you? … Did you change your clothes too?
Tidus: What are you talking about? I was with the band all the while once we got here… Which reminds me… I need to go to the bathroom now (>.<) *runs off to the bathroom*
-And thus Tidus suddenly was reminded that he needed to go to the bathroom-

Oh a note for this chapter, some weird names may pop out here and there, but it's just the jokes came out back in the GameFaqs Boards. Erm... Ignore them unless AnimeHaven posts his part of the Fanfic soon.
<A Taste for Talent Part 2>
(The finals for the talent contest is about to begin. The audience was filled with students from all the divisions as school just ended)
Golbez: What??? That Kuja made it in???
Kefka: I’m as shocked as you are!
Garland: No matter. *laughs* That would mean we get to see him fall on stage.
Kefka: That would be fun! Uwee hee hee hee!!!
Cloud of Darkness: I’ll make sure he does. *evil smile*
Sephiroth: And I have the camera.
Golbez: Why do you have a camera?
Sephiroth: … It was a coincidence!!! No! I’m not anticipating anything Cloud does!!!
Cloud: What was that?
Sephiroth: No nothing at all, just a random thought.
(Meanwhile the other Cosmos students were seated behind)
Kain: Would you all keep it down?
Cecil: Yea, the lot of you are as noisy as ever. *gives a stare*
Exdeath: Ooooh~ I’m so scared, what are you going to do to me?
Cecil: *changes to dark knight* Want to say that to my face??? *gives a pissed off look*
Exdeath: (0.0) Don’t hurt me!
Dark Knight Cecil: Oh but I want to. *stands up*
Cloud: Give it a rest Cecil.
Cecil: *changes to paladin* Fine…
Vaan: I can’t wait to see the band playing though.
Terran: GARland!!! You’re here!!! Can I sit with you???
Garland: Yea, sure.
Terran: Come on guys! *signals to rest of the class*
Sanaki: Oh look! There’s Shantotto in the judges table! *waves to Shantotto*
Shantotto: *waves back* Oh hohoho!
(In the backstage the students are getting ready)
Tifa: Alright just relax everyone.
Tidus: Yea! This will be a blast!
Bartz: This is so exciting! Our first live performance in front of an audience!
Kuja: Good luck to all of you. You amateurs will need it!
Terra: Hey! That’s not nice!
Kuja: Ho ho ho! But nothing can compare to my years of experience! You can’t refute that!
Onion Knight: Someone should shut him up…
(Firion walks around)
Firion: *sigh* I need some help for my act... Mog ran away after my preliminary performance. He looked terrified though…
Onion Knight: Hmm… I’ll help if that is fine.
Lightning: Sure, that would be okay since it’s just Firion’s performance after all.
Terra: Aww… Where did Moggy go?
(Squall stands at the corner)
Squall: (Where is she? …)
Warrior of Light: Squall, where’s Rinoa?
Squall: I’m not sure…
Warrior of Light: Well, do get her here before the finals start, your performance is before the intermission.
(Squall walks out of the backstage door and finds Rinoa)
Rinoa: Squall! *runs over and hugs Squall*
Squall: … What happened?
Rinoa: *pauses and retracts her arms* Oh… Nothing really… I’m just glad to see you.
Squall: Right… You said that before…
Rinoa: Well, I’d like to say it again!
Squall: Alright, let’s just head in. The finals are about to start.
(As Squall and Rinoa enter backstage, they were greeted by the sight of Ultimecia)
Squall: What do you want?
Ultimecia: … (Strange…) No… Nothing… (Looks like she’s normal again…)
Mateus: Ultimecia dear , time to go, our performance is up first.
Ultimecia: Okay. Oh and Squall do watch our performance.
Mateus: *laughs* Right.
(And so the Final round of the contest is about to begin)
Cid: Students of the school of SE! Are you ready for the performances???
(The audience cheers)
Cid: I’m Cid your Narra… I mean Announcer for this contest! Looks like we have lots of enthusiasm today! Without further or do, let’s welcome the judges shall we?
(The Judges stand up)
Cid: Any words you all would like to say?
Genesis: It’s a pleasure to be here and I would like to wish the contestants good luck as well.
Shantotto: Oh hohoho! Indeed that is so! I’m looking forward to see a good show!
Cid: And how about you two?
Raffaello: Nope, nothing much to add on.
Cid: Okay then! Let’s begin. Our first contestants are a pair which is familiar to you all. Give it up for Mateus and Ultimecia!
(Some cheers and boos could be heard as the two enter the stage. As the crowd settled down, they began their performance)
Squall: … What’s so special about it that I have to see this…
(Just then a familiar song started playing)
Rinoa: *gasps* Squall!!!
(It was the Waltz for the Moon! The couple who stood at the sight was shocked)
Rinoa: *tugs Squall’s uniform* That’s… That’s our! …
Squall: Son of a *****
(They watched in their horror as the couple on stage danced)
SuperGamer: *shouts out in the middle of the crowd* HEY! MATEUS! You better not be hurting my little princess!!!
Kitmeng: Shhh! Pipe down. Gosh that is embarrassing.
Ultimecia: Ignore him Mateus.
Mateus: Right… *continues dancing*
(The crowd cheered after the performance except the students from class VIII. Mateus and Ultimecia took a bow and exited the stage, giving Squall and Rinoa a smug look while they were at it)
Rinoa: Squall! We can’t let them beat us! We’re gonna beat them at this game!
Cid: And what a splendid performance that was! Truly remarkable yet familiar. Now let’s give it up for another couple you all love, Squall and Rinoa!!!
(The crowd cheers louder as Squall and Rinoa headed on stage. Squall went to the piano while Rinoa took the announcer’s microphone)
Random Fan Girl: *squeals* It’s Piano Squall!!!
Rinoa: Hi everyone! Today, me and Squally will be performing one of our favorite songs! So just sit back and enjoy~!
(As the cheers died down, Squall began to play another familiar tune, and Rinoa began to sing)
Rinoa: Whenever sing my songs~ On the stage, on my own~ Whenever said my words~ wishing they, would be heard~ I saw you smiling at me~ Was it real, or just my fantasy~ You’d always be there in the corner~ of this tiny little bar~
(Meanwhile in the audience)
Kain: Ahh, same Rinoa as always.
Dark Knight Cecil: I’d hit on her if it weren’t for Squall.
Kain: Then can I take Rosa?
Dark Knight Cecil: Heck no!
(The audiences were mesmerized by the performance, swooned by the beautiful music)
Rinoa: If frown is shown then, I will know that you are no dreamer~
(As soon as Rinoa finished her sentence the crowd goes wild again)
Rinoa: Thank you everyone!
Squall: *stands up and bow*
Cid: That was amazing!!! As expected by one of our most favorite couples!!!
(Squall and Rinoa bowed one more time before leaving the stage)
Squall: Take that.
Rinoa: *sticks out tongue at Ultimecia*
Cid: Alright! Now on to our next contestant!!!
(The contest continues. Many students indeed put on a good show. Just before the intermission, it was Kuja’s turn to perform)
Cid: It’s almost time for the intermission now, but before that, let’s give it up for the next contestant! Kuja!
(A mix of boos and cheers could be heard)
Garland: Alright, this is our chance! Let’s knock him down!
Cloud of Darkness: Certainly.
(As Kuja entered the stage, Cloud of Darkness cast a tiny spell on Kuja’s feet making him fall to the ground)
Kefka: Uwee hee hee!!! Splendid! Splendid!!!
Kuja: *gasps* You! *stares at the Chaos students*
(The audience roared with laughter)
Kuja: No matter. *stands back up* I am the star now. *clears throat*
(Kuja begins his recital as the crowd went silent)
Kuja: Peace is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget its painful past...Though we hope for promising years. After shedding a thousand tears, yesterday's sorrow constantly nears. And while the moon still shines blue, by dawn, it will turn to scarlet hue!...
(The audience were intrigued by the performance)
Vaan: How deep…
Cloud: (0.0) What does he mean???
Sephiroth: My head hurts from thinking… It’s too sophisticated!!!
Anime: Wow… I didn’t know he was THAT deep.
Kitmeng: (0.0) I thought he was just a big drama queen!
(As Kuja finished his recital everyone applaused surprisingly)
Cid: Wow! That is a true work of art! That was fabulous!!!
Kuja: They love me~!
Cid: Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time for us to take a short break! We will resume shortly so just sit tight!
Garland: Oh god! That was surprising!
Golbez: Yes… Totally unexpected that he would receive such an applause…
Kefka: The audience! They must be lying!!! I should burn them!!!
Cloud of Darkness: Now now, site down Kefka.
(Meanwhile backstage the students were taking a break as well)
Kuja: I’d say that was faaaabulous indeed.
Mateus: Quit your gloating…
Terra: Why does our performance have to be last???
Warrior of Light: I’m sorry but that’s the way it was arranged.
Onion Knight: Well you know what they say. Leave the best for last!

(Just then Miss Cosmos entered backstage)
Miss Cosmos: Oh Sidney~ Lightning~ Come here for a sec, I need to talk to you two.
Lightning: Sure Miss Cosmos what is it?
Miss Cosmos: Yes, I’d like to talk about some council work which you both are in charge in.
DEKMStephens: Miss Cosmos!!! *runs over*
Warrior of Light: Hey! You’re not allowed here?
DEKMStephens: It doesn’t matter as long as she’s here. *looks at Miss Cosmos*
Warrior of Light: I mean you are not allowed backstage, now go! *pushes him out*
DEKMStephens: You’re just jealous that I won the last time!!!
(Warrior of Light managed to get DEKMStephens out and continued the conversation with Miss Cosmos)
Ultimecia: … I sense something strange again… *looks over at Miss Cosmos*
(Ultimecia intently watches Miss Cosmos, noticing that Miss Cosmos kept her hands behind her back which was something she does not usually do)
Ultimecia: … (I need to have a kloser observation) *walks over to Miss Cosmos*
Miss Cosmos: *notices Ultimecia walking over* Oh would you look at the time… I think I need to do some work now, I’ll talk to you two again later.
Warrior of Light: Alright Miss Cosmos.
Lightning: See you.
(Miss Cosmos quickly heads out backstage which made Ultimecia even more suspicious. Ultimecia quickly followed Miss Cosmos, but however just as Miss Cosmos heads out, she disappears)
Ultimecia: … She’s gone… And that strange feeling is gone…
(But then Ultimecia noticed a familiar presence)
Ultimecia: … I kan sense you are here… Kome out of your hiding… Barthandelus…
(Just then Barthandelus who appeared as a student walked towards Ultimecia)
Barthandelus: How did you know? …
Ultimecia: I’m a user of illusions myself and I kan perceive those who use it. Now tell me, what are you up to?
Barthandelus: I’m merely just observing…
Ultimecia: Then why were you disguising yourself just now?
Barthandelus: What do you mean? I know nothing of that sort… I shall not talk further…
Ultimecia: Hmph… I’m watching out for you…
(Ultimecia walks away with a suspicious feeling)
Barthandelus: … You should be more careful you know?
Brown haired lady: *appears* You don’t have to tell me that.
Barthandelus: Though I wonder… What do you intend to do?
Brown haired lady: This is none of your business, and I have no time to banter with the likes of you. Come Maenad, let’s go.
Maenad: … *follows her*
Barthandelus: … But if you wish to go up against them, you have been warned… Remedi…
(In the auditorium, at the judges’ table, a student with white hair walked towards Raffaello)
Gabranth: Hey! You’re not supposed to come here!
Makenshi: That’s not my concern… I need to speak to Raffaello now. It’s quite important.
Genesis: Well, you’re early… I mean… In a rush… Fine, go ahead.
Shantotto: I shall let this slide, but do that again and I’ll tan your hide.
Raffaello: … Okay so what is this about?
Makenshi: We have to do this in private…
(Makenshi takes Raffaello away)
Shantotto: (Something suspicious is going on indeed… Why does he call him with such urgent need?)
Gabranth: (Shantotto is suspecting something… And so am I…)
(The two glanced at Genesis who seemed to be relaxed)
(Still within the intermission, Tidus decided to take another quick visit to the bathroom. As he came out, he saw Lenne)
Lenne: Hey there!
Tidus: How’s it been?
Lenne: Fine I guess. I didn’t know you were performing, it was quite a surprise.
Tidus: Well just watch me okay! You’ll love it! … Oh, I think I need to go to backstage now, see you Yuna! *runs off*
Lenne: Sure. See you then. (Wait did he just? … Did Shuyin just forget my name?)
(The intermission ended and the contest resumed)
Cid: Alright! We’re back and ready! Next up, we have a trio of contestants. An unlikely gang however. Give it up for Zidane, Zorn and Thorn!
(The crowd applauses)
Zidane: You two better not let go this time…
Zorn: We won’t let go!
Thorn: Let go we won’t!
(The three were on top of a pole which was set up, the audiences were amazed by the set-up)
Vaan: Whoa! Acrobatics???
Cloud: As expected from monkey boy.
(The trio began their acrobatics performance, swinging all about the stage leaving the audience gasping at various stunts they made)
(Zidane somersaulted around as Zorn and Thorn flung him about)
Zorn: We mustn’t let go!
Thorn: Let go we mustn’t!
Zidane: Would you two stop that?
(They ended their performance with a big finish as the three somersaulted down on stage and made a triangular formation with Zorn and Thorn on top of Zidane. The crowd was absolutely amazed)
Cid: Such a death defying act!!! Something you don’t usually see from a student! Great job!!!
(The three took their bows and scampered off stage)
Firion: Great job Zidane!
Zidane: Thanks! Good luck to you!
Firion: I’ll do my best!
Cid: Our next contestant who we know as the master of weapons, Give it up for Firion!!!
(The crowd applauses again as Firion and Onion Knight walked onto the stage)
Firion: Alright, just go over to that board and let them tie you there.
Onion Knight: Huh??? What are you making me do???
Firion: Don’t worry, I’m a master at this. I trained so much that my accuracy is almost perfect!
Onion Knight: I don’t like the way you added in the word ‘almost’…
(Onion Knight was tied to a circular board. Ooos and Aaas could be heard from the audience)
Firion: Alright *blindfolds himself*
Onion Knight: WHAT??? NO! DON’T DO THAT!!!
Firion: Relax! *takes out a knife*
Onion Knight: No!!! Wait!!!
Terra: *from behind* Don’t hurt him!!!
(Firion threw his first knife. It flew across the stage and hit just beside Onion Knight’s right ear)
Onion Knight: H… Hey… Be careful with that…
Firion: Gosh, don’t be such a baby! *throws another knife*
Onion Knight: AAAAHHH!!!
(The second knife just hit between Onion Knight’s legs. Onion Knight suddenly turned pale)
Bartz: (0.0) *gasps*
Tidus: That would have hurt!
Bartz: Real bad…
(The audience were left in awe every time Firion throws a knife and almost hits Onion Knight. After about ten more throws, Onion Knight was surrounded with knives)
Onion Knight: *gasping of air* *faints*
Cloud: Whoa… He fainted…
Vaan: But it was so cool!
Kain: Every shot missed him just by a tiny bit!
Cecil: Boy I’m glad I’m not in his shoes.
(Firion took a bow and the crowd went bananas, amazed at his sheer accuracy. He then takes Onion Knight off the board and carries him off stage)
Cid: Boy! That was shocking indeed! Alright let’s move on with the contest!
(The contest continued on. Not long after, it was the final performance)
Cid: Okay! We’ve almost come to the end of the performances. Give it up for the last set of contestants, Terra, Tifa, Onion Knight, Bartz and Tidus!!!
(The crowd goes wild as the group went on stage which was already fully set up with their instruments)
Terra: Hey everyone! This is our very first performance! Hope you all will like it!!! Oh, and I want to give a shout out to my Dachi!!! I miss you!!! Where are you???
Dachimotsu: Oh no… *hides* (Please don’t see me)
Skewer: Wow, they still remember us!
Onion Knight: … My legs are still shivering…
Tifa: Calm down. It’ll be fine…
Bartz: I think that’s not the reason why he is still shivering.
Terra: Here we go! Don’t Say Lazy!!!
Tidus: Alright! Let’s do this! *taps drumsticks* One! Two! Three! GO!
(The band began to rock the stage. The crowd goes wild as they played and began to clap with the beat. It was almost like a real rock concert)
Vaan: Whoa! Tidus is so lively on the drums!!!
Cecil: And look at Bartz go! His fingers are all over the keyboard!
Cloud: GO TIFAAAA!!!
Kain: *laughs* You’re sure lively.
Cecil: Wow, Tifa can sure sing! Though I wish Terra would sing too!
Vaan: Onion Knight looks really nervous.
Kain: Firion sure scared him to death.
(The band ended with a bang and everyone cheered louder than ever)
Cid: Looks like we have a crowd favorite! Let’s give it up for them again!!!
(The group took a big bow)
Terra: We did it!
Onion Knight: *faints*
Bartz: Hey!!! Is he okay???
Tidus: Hurry! Bring him backstage!!!
Tifa: I think he had too much pressure today.
(The band exits the stage, but just as they were leaving…)
Tifa: Whoa!!! *trips over wires*
Cloud: *stretches hand out* TIFA!!!
Tifa: Argh… Man… *gets up*
Tifa: Aww you guys!
Cid: Alright! Now it’s time to vote! Who do you want to win this contest? Remember, the top three winners will each get a trophy, plus the top contestant will get to perform at our school festival!
(The audience began to vote and there was much commotion)

Lightning: Yes, I liked the performances very much.
Warrior of Light: You all may go back to the dorms now.
Terra: Alright, see you guys!
(The students left, except for Cloud and Tidus)
(Cloud wanders onto the stage and looks at the piano)
Tidus: *walks in from behind* Hey Cloud! What are you still doing here?
Cloud: I wanted to play…
Tidus: Oh, I’d like to hear.
Cloud: … Okay… *sits down at the piano*
(Cloud plays a small tune)
Tidus: That’s nice.
Cloud: I’ve heard this melody somewhere before. Managed to play well…
(Just then a compartment in the piano opened)
Tidus: What’s this?
Cloud: *looks inside* *gasps*
(Tidus pulls out a Blonde Wig, a Diamond Tiara, Lingerie and a note)
Cloud: *still shocked*
Tidus: *reads note*
(The note read: Dear Cloud, You know you want it. <3 Sephy)
(Meanwhile, Sephiroth was hiding somewhere taking a photo of Cloud holding the Lingerie)
Sephiroth: Yes Cloud, do it…
Finalprinny: *suddenly walks in* Hey there! … (0.0) Noooo waaaay… So what you wrote in there was true!
Cloud: No! It’s not what you think it is!!!
Tidus: *grins* I know you dirty little secret~
-And thus Tidus got some dirt on Cloud-
