Hi. The talent show so fun to read. Especially the way you ended the Eric and Vanessa's relationship. I think the being-honest-with-the-unpleasant-women-in-your-life theme could be used for a Kuzco scene, where he tells Yzma what he really thinks about her. After the talent show is over and everyone is starting to go home, Kuzco brings up how Eric put off telling his Vanessa what he really thought of her; and he (Kuzco) wants to say to Yzma just now [and Yzma is sucpicious/angry since he's referring to a public break-up-disparity] how much he appreciates everything shes done for him, much to Yzma's shock. That he's gratful for her "practicly raising him" his whole life and keeping him after his parents died, and for preparing him to run his parents fashion company when he's old enough, as opposed to stealing it from him when he was too young to do anything about it. Thats, dispit his teasing, he's overall glad she's in his life. I think the Kuzco in the movie cared about Yzma too; he still wanted to have dinner with her after he fired her (undermining the Emperor's authority was a legitimate reason), and was utterly devastated when he learned about her betrayal. If he just said he still appreciated her at that dinner, the movie would have gone diffrently. Fanfiction was made for getting the characters you like to say the things you wish they could say.
