so let’s discuss the legends karaoke night
it starts because ray offhandedly mentions that team flash does it, and stein is like “ah, those children, with their singing, and their competency. i miss them.”
it’s one of my personal headcanons that barry + sara have the huge fucking rivalry for absolutely no reason?? so she is NOT about to be outdone by barry fucking allen’s team so
sara: karaoke night! be there or be square haha it’s not optional i’m the captain
amaya: what’s karaoke
nate: *softly* n o
so the evening starts off with jax. and i don’t remember who told me that jax is a britney spears stan, but you bet your ass i believe it. he has a whole set list, he doesn’t actually need the lyrics, his singing is shitty but he takes the whole team on an emotional journey. they’re crying by the time it’s over.
sara gets up there and sings like, fucking all star by smash mouth. and everybody’s bopping an then she sings a DIFFERENT song by smash mouth, and everyone is Shook to the Core.
mick: i didn’t know that smash mouth had any songs besides the shrek soundtrack
amaya: what’s a shrek
nate: *screeching* N O
then stein gets up and sings like… some duet from the 20s or 30s, like golden age of broadway shit. and amaya’s like, “wait i know this song!” and everyone is like don’t sing with stein he has a good voice and he’ll try to intimidate you, but amaya has a beautiful voice and the whole team is FLOORED
sara: sing to me, my angel of music
nate: what’s that from?
jax: phantom of the opera
stein is confused about how they know theater and sara shrugs and is like “i was a theater kid for two years bc my crush was the stage manager”
jax: my mom had a picture of michael crawford on our fridge
sara: did you just,,, quote high school musical?
amaya: what’s a high school musical
nate: *crying and waving his fists at the sky* NOOOOO
then nate gets up and sings like, every song from the pitch perfect 2 riff off where the theme is 90s.
amaya: oh i love pitch perfect 2!!
nate: oh finally!! what did you think of the first pitch perfect?
amaya: there was a first pitch perfect?
okay and mick does not sing. he will not sing. until ray begs him “mick, please, you know you want to sing pretty please” and mick sighs and gets up and sara is smiling b she knows mick has a “”“”“crush”“”“”“ on ray and he sings like… an old irish sea shanty
jax: how does this machine even have that?
rip: this is a karaoke machine from the future mr. jackson, it has every song ever up until the year 3000
jax: … i have an idea
and jax gets up there and sings year 3000 by the jonas brothers and sara is like “without me? hell no” and nate joins in and they sing “burning up” by the jonas brothers
jax: i’m nick
sara: good bc i’m obviously joe
nate: i thought i was joe!
sara: you know you’re not joe
nate: pretty sure i am
sara: say what you really are
nate: i’m joe!!
sara: stop lying to yourself
nate: i’m JOE!
sara: nate be honest with yourself
nate:… i’m kevin
amaya: what’s a kevin??
sara, who is still living off the high of mick fucking rory singing a fucking sea shanty, recalls a conversation she had with snart during one of their platonic “get drunk and play cards” nights. he told her that mick fucking HATES the “hey micky” song, it annoys him to no end, so of course she has to convince darling raymond to sing it for them.
she convinces ray to do it by telling him it’s a thank you for mick singing and he’s drunk enough (bc of course they’re drinking, three of them just sang a jonas brothers song) and he goes up there and fucking does it. ray is not a good singer, but he is a goddamn enthusiastic one. he’s chanting “HEY MICKY YOU’RE SO FINE” at the top of his lungs god bless him. sara is waiting for mick to be angry but he’s just kind of smiling and she is like what is happening
mick: do ya hear that captain, he thinks i’m fine
sara: oh my god you’re in love with him
sara: this is More than i bargained for
jax: … I HAVE ANOTHER IDEA
and jax gets up there and sings like, every fall out boy and all time low song under the sun and everybody’s like “yeah!!” but then he starts singing like, more hardcore emo shit and everyone is confused and he’s like OF COURSE i had an emo phase guys i was a teen in the 2010s AND i suffered a LIFE CHANGING ACCIDENT
rip: mr. jackson, i rather enjoy some of these songs, would you mind sharing them with me?
rest of them team: oh no
jax: *throws an mcr t shirt at rip* jOiN ThE bLaCk PaRaDe, RiP
everything is fun and pure until the end of the night where like, ray is literally sitting in mick’s lap and jax is draped across the monitor just singing toxic over and over again when
amaya: *hiccups* i knew EVERYTHING about the references you guys made tonight. i sure got u guys good
nate: SON OF A
