Yachiyo's Happy Place

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Hmm hm hmm ♪


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Ah, Yachiyo-senpai.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Hey, it's Shiori. You hungry?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
No, I was going to watch some TV. There's a movie starting soon.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Hey, same! I was just waiting for it. Come have a seat.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Oh! Okay.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Can I ask what all these magazine clippings are for? Are you making something?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
They're for my scrapbook. I cut out and save outfits so I can use them as reference.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Probably easier to just show you. Here's my book.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Wow, all these clothes are adorable!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Huh, so you cut out the text blurbs as well as the photos?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Yeah. There's more to fashion trends than just cut and color.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I keep track of the buzzwords and slang trends, or I'll grab some really good catch copy...


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
It's fun! Oh, but the handwritten buts are my own reactions.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
They're even longer than the print parts... And really informative!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
My, my. It's an honor getting a compliment from you.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Oh, gosh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to sound presumptuous...


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
You weren't. It honestly feels really good to hear somebody likes my book.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Feel free to keep 'em coming! Like what do you think of this page?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Ooh, these outfits are all really sharp. The models look so cool.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Look at this mess, Yachiyo! I asked you before to do your scrapbooking in your room, didn't I?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Ah, I'm sorry. I'm not doing it just to tick you off, Mei Fan.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Then why ARE you doing it out here?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
It's costume research. I'm making the Lupin costume now, yeah?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Hey, the movie that's coming on is about a heist, too!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Exactly. You don't mind that too much, do you, Mei Fan? It's for my work!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
...I suppose if it's for costume design purposes. But if Akira-san shows up, I want this place cleaned up immediately.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
You got it, boss.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Also, I'm here for the same movie, so make room for one more.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
The more the merrier!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh hey, as long as I've got you here, what's your mental image of the perfect thief?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Hmm... A cool, aloof character, cloaked in darkness.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I see... And you, Shiori?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Mine is mostly just Lupin, but I guess I'd say a Robin Hood type who sticks to his own code of ethics?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Interesting, there's a decent bit of spread there. Let me write this down.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
What pops into your head when you hear "master thief," Yachiyo?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Hmmm, I still don't have a firm image really. That's why I'm doing this research.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Are all of these clippings reference for Lupin's costume, then?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Some are head-to-toe candidates, yeah. Others, it's just one item, but they're all hints.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
It could be interesting to just stitch together a patchwork of all of these.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
It would take a master thief's confidence to sport a look that bold. ...Ooh, it's time for the movie!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
I'll turn on the TV.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Let's see how-on-point this thief's fashion sense is. I can't wait ♪

Cat and Mouse

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Aaand put this file into last year's folder... There.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
(Does that about do it? I finished pretty early, so maybe I'll put together that other report.)


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Okay, report time...


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Yaaachiyo ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh hey, Michiru-senpai. How goes?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Well, thank you ♪ I figured you'd be finishing up, so I brought you a drink.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Aw, that's so nice! I love a frosty can of juice after work. Cheers!


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Haha, cheers ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Ahhh, this is what life's all about. And I guess acting, too. Seeing as I'm a Stage Girl.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Ahaha, I'm glad you enjoyed it.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Maybe I'll take care of some leftover work too.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
If you want, I can take care of it for you.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
No, no, it's fine! Shouldn't take too long anyway.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
You sure? I'm already at it here, so it wouldn't take me long at all.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Are you just trying to chase me off? Were you up to something you don't want to be seen doing?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh, please. There might be things I wouldn't want to work on around Akira-senpai, but you? You're nice.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Wait, why Akira?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Whenever she's in the room, there's this tension in the air, you know? I can't work at an easy pace.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Ahaha, I guess we all need a break now and then.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
See? You get it, Michiru-senpai?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I work best around people with your kinda vibe.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Well, I'm flattered ♪


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
So, I couldn't help but notice you closed that folder in a hurry when I arrived.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh no, I just happened to finish pulling those docs together when you got here. Total coincidence.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Hmmm, I wonder.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
You're always scribbling away in that book of yours. I thought maybe it was that ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh what, my scrapbook?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Hm? No, not that one--


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Michiru-senpai.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Yes?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Do you already know about...my SECRET notebook?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Hmm? And which secret notebook would that be?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
The one with...


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
The one with the heights, weights, and body measurements of all the Edels. It's the single most sensitive document in the Siegfeld Institute of Music.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
You've got a notebook with our WHAT!?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
You didn't know? Gah, I just blabbed for nothing!?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
You're killing me here, Michiru-senpai! You look all nice and cute, but you're sneaky about weaseling info out of people.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Aww, you wound me ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Yeah, I'll bet. Well, the cat's out of the bag now.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Please, I'm begging you. Don't tell anyone else about the notebook, okay?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I can't make any costumes without it, but it's something I can't go around showing anybody, you know?


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Hmmmm... Oh, all right. This can be our little secret ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Whew, I really appreciate it!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Hm? Your phone's lighting up, Michiru-senpai.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Oh right, Akira wanted me. Well, remember to lock up when you're done!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
(Yikes... That had me in a cold sweat. I can't let my guard down around her.)


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
(But it felt kinda exciting. Like I was a master thief in a game of cat and mouse ♪)

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
If I were a thief, I'd be less interested in taking some object and more about stealing someone's deepest secret. ...I'm just teasing.

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Isn't it odd how popular Arsene Lupin is? I guess even bad guys have their allure.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Maybe I'll try to push that so-bad-he's-good vibe for the next rehearsal. ... "Be careful I don't steal your heart."


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Heh heh, did that one get you? It's a line I've been working on for our next session. Seems to be pretty effective!
