All About Diaochan

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Check it out! It's a Red Hare figurine ♪ Mei Fan brought it back for me as a souvenir.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
You know how she went back home for a visit recently? She says she spotted it then.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Heh heh, isn't it cute? Shiori was losing it, she was so happy.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Why a horse? Hmm, she probably saw it and Shiori's face popped into her head.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Heh, I'm mostly joking. I guess it just grabbed her?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Mei Fan's funny, though. Apparently she bought it without knowing it was a specific horse. The name's written on the back, see?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
She didn't know it was Red Hare until reading it there. Right, the one from the Three Kingdoms.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Anyway, that got her and me talking, and we thought it could be fun to stage a version of the Three Kingdoms.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
That doesn't sound like the sort of thing Siegfeld would go for? Yeah, you're not wrong there.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But doesn't that make it even more interesting? The impossibility of it's got me weirdly hooked.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
So then we were like okay, if we WERE doing it, who'd get what role?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Considering the Red Hare link, I said Mei Fan should be Lu Bu. She didn't seem very sold on the idea at first, though.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Then Akira-senpai would be Cao Cao and Michiru-senpai'd be Zhuge Liang. They're perfect, right?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Shiori? Heh... Funny story, actually.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
At first I was thinking Cai Yan, but she's not a really well-known character, you know?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
So I asked Shiori directly. Guess what she said.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
"I want to be Red Hare." That girl seriously loves her horses.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
What, me? I haven't been able to come up with a role that clicks for me yet.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
What do you think?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
...Diaochan? The most beautiful woman in all the world?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Ahaha, come on. Flattery won't get you anywhere.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Plus what kind of narcissist is going to be like, "Yes, that's SO me"?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But hmm... Setting the beautiful part aside, I do see some similarities there.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I mean, she's the kind of girl who'll jump right into enemy lines for the sake of her savior.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
And she uses her feminine wiles to sow chaos among her enemies...


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Whoa whoa, I'm not saying I'm some kind of seductress here!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But she's super willful and loyal and determined, and that's pretty much me exactly, am I right?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Whaaat? Your eyes are screaming, "You've got to be kidding". Wipe that smirk off your face! Ahaha.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But now you've got me wanting to give it a go! Maybe I'll talk it over with the other girls later. Thanks a bunch ♪

Seduction

Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
What's that costume for, Yachiyo-senpai?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
It's Diaochan. I figured why not go ahead and make it?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Well? What do you think, Shiori? I designed it myself!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
It's amazing! You look awesome, Yachiyo-senpai! It suits you perfectly!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But hmm... Setting the beautiful part aside, I do see some similarities there.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Liu Mei Fan, Frau Rubin and first-year student at the Siegfeld Institute of Music Acting Department, reporting in!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Hello, Mei Fan-senpai!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Come look at this costume Yachiyo-senpai made! Isn't it beautiful?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Hello, Shiori. Oh, my...!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Yachiyo, that costume is stunning.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Right!?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
It--Ah, AHHH!?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Hmm? What's wrong, Shiori?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
The skirt just parted and, um... That's quite...revealing.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh, this? It's easier to move around in this way, you know?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Diaochan is a singer, but she's also an expert at the sword dance. She moves around a lot, so you need a slit at least this high.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
AaAAHhh! B-but if you move around like that, you'll...!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Aw, are you awestruck by my legs?


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Yachiyo, I believe what she's experiencing is raw embarrassment. It IS a lovely costume, but it bares a lot of skin.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Aww, don't worry! It seems like you can see everything, but the goodies are all safely hidden. It's a sneaky bit of design sleight of hand ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But it set your heart racing, right?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Y-Yes, I'm still a little flustered actually...


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Then I've done my job as Diaochan, the world's greatest beauty.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
She managed to seduce even Lu Bu. This much is nothing. "Isn't that right, Lu Bu?"


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
"Diaochan... You are stunning beyond words!"


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
GaAAaAHHh! Y-Y-Your faces are so close!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Is...this what the chemistry between a grown man and woman looks like? You're both so dreamy!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Thanks, Shiori ♪


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
While I was at it, I thought up a costume for Mei Fan too.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
For me?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Yeah, a Lu Bu costume, to match my Diaochan. What do you think of this?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Wooow, that looks amazing!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
It really does... If I could wear this on stage, I feel as though I could work harder than ever.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Mmm, lovely. Feel free to keep the praise coming! Oh, speaking of.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I thought up your costume too, Shiori. You said you wanted to be Red Hare, right?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Yes! I'm flattered that you remembered, Yachiyo-senpai!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
...The horse?


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
What do you think?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Aww, it's a horsey! A pretty red horsey!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Not bad, right?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
I want to try it on! I want to become Red Hare!


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
We HAVE to do Three Kingdoms!


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I'd like to, someday.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Shiori REALLY likes horses...

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
So, how's my Diaochan? Does it live up to your expectations? Well, watch out. I'm just getting started.

Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Do you know how Diaochan's story ends? None of the versions say for sure. In most of them, she just vanishes partway through.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
But if I'm going to play her, I want to give her a proper ending. Even if it isn't a happily ever after.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
I want to bring my own Diaochan to the stage. One that only I could do. When that happens, I hope you'll watch to the very end ♪
