A/N: Knock, knock. Who's there? It's me, Orangebird124 and I am back with another "Inside Out" story for all of you! Don't worry, this is not the sequel to "Sadness Spiral", this is a different "Inside Out" story that I'm writing and plus, it's still my most favorite movie ever! Also, this story won't have any P.O.V.'s. Have you ever went on YouTube and watched the "Inside Out" music themes that are based on their personality? I have and this got me thinking into making a story like this. I hope you all enjoy it and away we'll go!
Disclaimer: I don't own "Inside Out", the characters or any of the songs. The songs that I'm using belong to their rightful owners and "Inside Out" belongs to Disney and Pixar.
"Aaaaand, we are out!" Joy announced, just as Riley fell asleep before turning to her coworkers. "Nice job, Team Happy! Another great, successful day we had!"
As usual, the day had ended and Anger sent the memories down to Long Term Memory.
"It's a shame that we have to do a chapter report on New England." Sadness reminded sadly.
"Yeah. There goes our fun weekend." replied Anger in annoyance, as he rolled his eyes. "We had so much to plan!"
"I know. What a great way to start off the weekend." agreed Disgust sarcastically, as she stepped up next to the brick.
"You know what the worst scenario is? Procrastinating over the weekend!" Fear added seriously.
"We'll never get it done on time!" moaned Sadness, as she collapsed to the floor on her back. "It feels like we haven't learned anything yet!"
"Hey, come on, guys. We always learn something new everyday. What are the six states of New England?" said Joy cheerfully.
"Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont." answered Anger triumphantly.
"See? Anger already knows the six states of New England." Joy said, as she tried to stay optimistic. "And if Riley has trouble answering the questions, we just let Mom and Dad help."
Disgust sat on the floor next to Sadness and started examining her nails and she said with boredom, "Joy, we're bored. We wanna do something fun."
"Yeah, maybe we can play Candy Land." suggested Fear.
Disgust shook her head and said, "No way, Fear. We're not playing that stupid board game again because you always keep winning."
"Hey, it's just a board game." Fear protested, as he put his hands on his hips, slightly annoyed.
"How about we play hide and seek, guys?" asked Joy, smiling. "I'm a good hider."
"Last time we played that game, Fear got locked in a closet and we couldn't get him out of there for an hour." the teardrop stated, still lying on the floor.
"Oh, don't even mention that memory, Sadness!" the raw nerve shuddered.
"Oops. Sorry, Fear." mumbled Sadness, as she sat up and lifted her sweater up to her mouth with shame.
Anger was whispering into Disgust's ear very quietly, while she knew what he was saying and nodded with a mischievous grin on her face.
"How about we watch that movie where the lion cub's father dies?" Sadness suggested with a smile on her face.
Joy knew what movie Sadness was talking about and wondered curiously, "Didn't we watch that with Jordan the other day?"
"I think so. I gotta admit, that evil lion nearly…" Fear said, before he got cut off as Disgust pinned him to the ground on his back.
"Pinned ya!" Disgust declared with glee.
"Disgust, get off of me right now!" shrieked Fear, as he struggled to break free.
Suddenly, Joy, Anger and Disgust burst into a fit of laughter while Sadness looked over at them.
"Stop laughing, guys!" cried Fear in embarrassment. "It's not funny!"
"Oh, but it is, beanpole." chuckled Anger.
"Fear, you should've seen that look on your face when Disgust pounced on you!" laughed Joy.
"I don't think that was funny at all." said Sadness in her solemn tone of voice.
"Yeah, I agree with Sadness." Fear agreed seriously before he looked back at Disgust who was still on top of him. "What are you trying to do, give me a heart attack?!"
"Uh, no." Disgust smirked.
She finally got off of the raw nerve and helped him up to his feet.
"Okay, guys. Let's just find something else we can do before anyone gets hurt." Joy said quickly with a nervous smile on her face.
"Ay, yi, yi…" groaned Disgust, as she rolled her eyes.
Suddenly, Joy snapped her fingers and exclaimed enthusiastically, "I got a great idea! You wait right here, guys. I'll be right back."
And with a flash, Joy took running off to her bedroom and went into her closet. The star looked all around until she spotted a karaoke machine in the corner. As she walked over to it, there was a microphone attached to it. A big smile appeared on her face.
Meanwhile, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear were sitting on the floor in a circle and they were definitely feeling bored than they were after Riley fell asleep.
"So, what do you guys want to do?" asked Disgust.
"I don't know." answered Fear with boredom before he looked at the brick. "What do you want to do tonight, Anger?"
"Snap your neck in half." Anger said with sarcasm before he grew frustrated. "I don't know! You tell me!"
"If only Joy was here, she'd think of something." replied Sadness, as she pointed out. "Besides, she's the most fun in this place."
"I'm back!" the star called out from a distance.
"Oh, hallelujah!" announced Anger with relief.
They ran over to Joy and they saw her setting up the karaoke machine.
"What are you doing, Joy?" asked Sadness curiously.
"I thought it would be fun if we had our own karaoke night. Don't you guys think?" responded Joy excitedly, just as she finished setting the machine up.
The Emotions looked at each other, puzzled.
"A karaoke night?" the raw nerve stated. "I don't think we ever did that before."
"Maybe we should give it a try." said Disgust.
Joy brightly smiled at the Emotions just as she turned the karaoke machine and the microphone on.
"Alright, guys, are you all ready for karaoke night?" she announced excitedly.
"Yeah!" they cheered with enthusiasm.
"Ok! I'm gonna go first!"
Joy went into a drawer which was next to a drawer filled with light bulbs and the drawer revealed some CD's. She pulled a CD out, opened the case and inserted the disc into the player as the Emotions sat on the floor, waiting for the fun to begin. All of a sudden, a song started to play.
"OMG! I know this song!" Disgust gasped excitedly.
"Hey, you just took the words right out of my mouth! That's Riley's most favorite song ever!" said Fear happily.
"Quiet, beanpole! Joy's about to sing." Anger shushed the raw nerve.
"Oh, sorry, Anger." he apologized quickly.
"Ooh, you can dance! You can jive, having the time of your life! Ooh, see that girl; watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen!" Joy sung happily at the top of her lungs.
She danced around with the microphone for a bit before she went back to singing, facing the Emotions.
"Friday night and the lights are low. Looking out for a place to go, where they play the right music, getting into swing, you come to look for a king." the star sung.
"Oh, really?" Fear chuckled, with a raised eyebrow of confusion.
"Anybody could be that guy! Night is young and the music's high! With a bit of rock music, everything is fine. You're in the mood for a dance." sung Joy. "And when you get the chance…"
The Emotions' smile grew bigger and even Sadness couldn't help but smile herself.
"You are the dancing queen! Young and sweet, only seventeen! Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine, oh, yeah!" she sung, while dancing around. "You can dance! You can jive, having the time of your life! Ooh, see that girl; watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen!"
Fear snapped his fingers as he hummed along with the song.
"Not bad, Joy!" encouraged Sadness, smiling. "Keep it up!"
"You asked for it!" said Joy happily. Then, she sung, "You're a teaser, you turn them on. Leave them burning and then you're gone! Looking out for another, anyone will do. You're in the mood for a dance. And when you get the chance…"
"Here it comes!" Disgust cried eagerly.
"You are the dancing queen! Young and sweet, only seventeen! Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine, oh, yeah! You can dance! You can jive, having the time of your life! Ooh, see that girl; watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen!" Joy sung loudly, but happily.
"Are you having fun, kid?" Anger asked.
"Fun? I'm having the time of my life!" responded Sadness happily, as she snapped her fingers to the song.
"Diggin' the dancing queen!" the star sung.
"And now, for the finale!" announced Fear.
"You can dance! You can jive, having the time of your life! Ooh, see that girl…"
Joy used this pause as an air guitar solo with her microphone.
"Watch that scene…"
Doing another air guitar solo, she slid down to the floor on her knees, singing the last note, "Diggin' the dancing queen!"
The Emotions whistled and applauded at Joy's successful singing as the star took a bow.
"Thank you! Thank you very much, everybody!" she commented politely, while bowing.
After the bowing, Joy ejected the CD and placed it back into the case. Then, she put it back into the drawer.
"Joy, you are the best dancing queen in Headquarters." Fear said to Joy with a smile on his face.
Joy couldn't help but giggle and blush at his comment.
"Hey, Joy. Can I perform a song next?" asked Sadness, as she tugged onto her dress.
"Of course you can, Sadness. We'd love to hear what song you pick." said Joy.
A/N: Wow. I'm very happy with how this story is going to turn out. I hope you all liked this first chapter and the song that Joy sung was "Dancing Queen" from the "Mamma Mia!" movie. Before I end this chapter, I want to say that my goal is to get at least one of my "Inside Out" stories onto TV Tropes. If not, then that's okay. Did you guys spot a reference to "The Lion King" in the beginning of my story? Anyway, I hope you guys liked it and please review, follow and favorite this story! What song will Sadness pick and sing to in chapter 2? We'll just have to find out and see in June!
THANK YOU & have a Happy Memorial Day week!
