This fanfic is inspired by becky's fan art of the crew as a band. This is the first part. I will keep writing it with your feedback. This is my first ever attempt at fan fiction. Tell me what you think smile

(The entire P.E. crew is seated at the conference table. Hermes Conrad is standing in front of a line graph,giving one of his usual lectures.)

Hermes: And from da looks of dis chart, Planet Express is suffering a catastrophic net loss due to lack of customahs!

(No one seems to be paying attention. Leela is hunched in her seat. Fry is absentmindedly staring at the ceiling. Bender appears to be reading a book,but is actually reading a robot pornography magazine he has hidden inside of it. Dr. Zoidberg is trying unsuccessfully to play a paddle ball game. Amy Wong is doing her nails. Professor Farnsworth is asleep,snoring.)

Hermes: So as a result, compensation for dis. is gonna have ta come out of your salary.

(The crew suddenly snaps to attention and begins to protest.)

(In unison)
Leela: What?!?!

Fry: Hey!

Bender: No fair!

Amy: You can’t just-

Zoidberg: No!

(The uproar jerks the Professor out of his nap.)

Professor: Eh wha? Oh,yes. Bad news,everyone-

Leela: (dejectedly) Too late,Professor. Hermes already told us.

(The Professor seems disappointed.)

Professor: Oh....well in that case I’m off to build some more doomsday devices and work on my latest inventions...

(He sighs and leaves the conference room. Amy is clearly upset.)

Amy: Ai ya,what am I going to do?

Bender: What are you so worried about,Amy? I thought your parents were loaded.

Amy: Oh,spluh! I forgot! Well then I’m okay.

(Zoidberg begins sobbing)

Zoidberg: (sobbing)You maybe,but what about me?

Amy: Gleesh,Zoidberg,you’re poor anyway. It’ll be just like it always is for you.

Zoidberg: Really? Hooray!

(He stops and thinks this over for a second, then begins sobbing again.)

(Cut to: PE lounge a little while later. Fry and Bender are seated on the couch. Leela is pacing back and forth in front of them.)

Fry: (sighs) It’s times like this I wish money grew on trees.

Bender: Of course money grows on trees.

Fry: (surprised) It does?

Leela: Yeah,but those trees are protected by law.

Fry: Crap!

(Leela stops pacing and sits down in a chair)

Leela: Well,if we’re going to afford our rents we’re going to have to think of a way to get extra money.

Bender: I’ll just sell used car parts like I always do in times of financial hardship. Mugging people on the side couldn’t hurt either. Maybe I should just rob the bank.

Leela: You’re not going to rob anyone,Bender. I don’t want to get stuck paying bail for you again. There’s got to be a better way. Any ideas?

Fry: Nope. I wonder what’s on t.v.?

(Fry picks up the remote and turns on the t.v. A commercial flashes on the screen.)

Announcer:-You could win $50,000!

Fry: Stupid commercials.

(Fry begins to change the channel.Leela starts and jumps out of the chair she was sitting in,grabbing the remote from Fry.)

Leela: Wait! Don’t change the channel!

Announcer: If you are starting a rock band and we like your sound,$50,000 could be yours along with the chance to go on tour and make an album courtesy of Supreme Alien Ruler
records!

(Leela, Fry,and Bender stare at the screen in awe.)  (beat)

Fry: Let’s see what’s on the news.

I love it! Its very funny, and script form is my fave style of fanfic.
I can imagine this as an opener to an episode, its that good it is!

EDIT (new idea): you and becky could get together for a comic on this one perhaps? That would rock in more ways than one.

Thank you all so much love  I'm so happy you like it!
I am glad it sounds like it is from the show,that's just what I was going for big grin As for the comic idea,it's a good suggestion but I would just like to do my first story myself,plus becky is probably busy as it is doing fan art for all of us smile I'm not quite sure when you can expect the next part as I am still in the process of writing it.

Does anyone know a good name for them to have for their band? I have no idea what to name them hmpf

I've really been looking forward to your fic, Benderfan! And it's finally here   big grin From what I've seen so far, it's great, and you're a talented and funny writer. The parts Daniela posted are my favorites too   love Bring it on!

Yeah, cool idea! It would probably take some time for Benderfan to write and for me to draw, but if she’s up for it, so am I!

Edit: Heh, two people posted before me while I was writing this. I don't know of a good band name, though. Couldn't think of anything when I drew the picture, so I just left the drum blank.. Dr.Jerkbird's ideas aren't bad, though  smile

What about "Future Metal"? Just an idea. I don't really know how metal-band names sound like. (It should be a Metal band, like on Becky's pictures, right?)

"Future Metal", "Deliver us to Death", "The hideous garbage-eaters", "Paid less than you think" ... Don't laugh about my ideas, I'm just not a Metal-fan and so I don't know that kind of music well good ...

That's okey, I understand! Even if we had done the comic, you would be the writer and have full control of the story. I'd just be the humble drawer   wink

Edit: I must spend too much time in writing my posts. Another reply before me!

Maybe they could parody a name of a real band? Like "System of a Dumb" or something..?

Triple Fry Soul
Metalazoid
Soul Bender
Bent
Fryed
Nebulosity
Phil Chill and the Zoids
the Zoids
Zilch Nil and the Zeroes (Fry could be Zilch Nil)

I'll think of more as time permits...

Great concept!

Thanks cap'n skusting those are really good ideas! The "zoid" ones I can't do because contrary to becky's art zoidberg will not be in the band,he will be more of a groupie  who wants to be in the band but can't. It seems to fit his character big grin
My favorite names so far: Deliver us to Death and Nebulosity(can't say why,I just like the sound of it smile)

Great start! It seems like it's a real episode.
In terms on names,I really like "The hideous garbage-eaters,"Paid less than you think " and "System of a Dumb".

Funny you should mention that, I was thinking of writing a SOAD song parody last night, like 'Needles' (you know, the tapeworm track), with a 'parasites lost' feel to it, or maybe a version of 'Chop Suey' thats about how depressing the character's lives are.
I got writers block though, and chose to write a beastie boys parody instead, I'm halfway through it.

Some ideas for alternative band names:

30% Iron Maiden (Iron maiden)
Stinkin Quark (Linkin Park)
Zerosmith (Aerosmith)
DefClones (Deftones)
Suns and Supernovaes (Guns and Roses)
Chumps with a low wage (Queens of the stone age)

Oh zmithy please write a song for me? I want the band to have a hit song but I'm not good at writing songs,and I'm very busy writing the fic. A song parody would be funny,but it would have to be from a metal band. Please? big grin

Zmithy, do the depressing version of "Chop Suey"! Seriously, it's my favorite song, and I'd love a parody on it!  big grin Please?
("30% Iron Maiden" sounds great by the way!)

I'll get right on it!

Lets see,
"When angels deserve to die"

1. Leela's war of nerves with Fry
2. Leela has curves for Fry
3. When bagels are served for Fry

I know those are crap, thats just a minute of ideas for now, I'll have it done by the weekend.

Sorry about the wait everyone! I have the next part of the story. It isn't much,since I am currently uninspired, but I hope you enjoy it anyway! Tell me if you do big grin


(Cut to: PE conference room. Hermes, Amy,and the Professor have just heard Fry,Leela,and Bender’s plan to enter the contest)

Amy: You’re gonna enter the band contest? That’s awesome! If you guys want,I could help with your hair and costumes. It’ll be a lot of work though,especially for you,Leela.

(Before Leela can speak,Fry answers Amy)

Fry: Sure Amy! That’d be great!

Bender: But if we’re gonna be in the contest we gotta know how to play something.

Professor: That’s where my latest invention comes in!

(The Professor presses a button on a remote control in his hand. A device appears on the conference table. The crew turns to look at it. It is silver and has a small screen like a gameboy.)

Professor: This device allows you to instantly learn to play an instrument of your choice. Simply put this CD into the device.


(The Professor pulls a CD out of his lab coat pocket. The words”Learn to Play any Instrument in Less than 2 Seconds (no really)” are printed on it.)

Leela: But Professor,isn’t that cheating?

Professor: (angry) No it isn’t! It’s just using something other than natural talent to win! Now shut up and try the machine!

Leela: All right,all right.

(Leela goes to the Professor’s invention,picks up the CD and slides it into the device’s disk drive. The screen flashes on. A female voice speaks.)


Female voice: Please select style of music.

(The words “rock” ”jazz” “classical” and “zorglll” appear on the screen. Leela touches the word “rock” on the screen. The screen then shows different instruments. The text at the bottom of the screen says,” select instrument” Leela selects a picture of an electric guitar. The female voice speaks.)

Female voice: Commence learning stage.

(Suddenly, blue rays shoot out of the screen and into Leela’s eye. Then as suddenly as it shot out,the rays dissapear. Fry rushes to Leela.)

Fry: Leela,are you all right?

Leela: I’m fine,thanks. But I feel...different somehow. Bender, hand me that guitar.

Bender: Oh sure,make Bender do all the work! Do I have to do everything around here?

(Bender walks over to the other end of the room,where for inexplicable reasons an electric guitar is laying on its side. He grabs it and gives it to Leela. She plays an excerpt from a Metallica instrumental.)

Fry: Wow, Leela, that rocks!

Professor: Indeed. You three will be shoo-ins to win the contest!

Bender: This is gonna be great! We’re gonna be rock stars! We’re gonna be rich! We’re gonna have groupies!

(Just then Zoidberg enters the room.)

Zoidberg: A band?! Can I join?

Bender: No!

Zoidberg: Ohh..
