I may be a tease, but I'm also just tired and lazy. :P  
Transcribed by the wonderful bluerevue, who suggested I resort to bribery to get people to transcribe my posts. Hmmm...

I realized that I was doing a great disservice to the fandom if I didn't make a post about this.

Non-Soragumi news: I think at least some of you may be aware of a short Sky Stage program that they've started making recently called "Gakuya no WakuWaku Café Time". I think they've done at least four now. I've seen three with Hoshigumi and one with Yukigumi. And basically they take four or five – or three or four? – youngish members of a troupe and let them sit around and talk for fifteen minutes about the show that's going on right then. So yeah, I really think that the first one with Hoshigumi 86ths is still the best... But the one that I saw on the Sky Stage TV last Sunday was Chie and Amagiri Mayo and Umezono Sachi – all 85ths, I believe – and they were talking about various things, and one of the stories that came up was the fact that, you know, Chie has to try really hard not to laugh whenever Touko offers her one of her "stylish outfits", but sometimes she actually has enough composure to, like, respond to Touko. And I guess in Tokyo one of the stories that came up went like this: Wataru was in the audience, and Touko described an outfit for Chie that was one of Radames' outfits from A Song for Kingdoms, and Chie responded with something along the lines of "I've already worn something like that." And Touko said "What?! Did I give it to you?" and Chie said "No, I got it from someone else." And I don't know, I was so happy; I was amused that Chie finally, at least sometimes, was able to respond to Touko's teasing and everything.

Wow, maybe I'm not quite in the right mood for this but somehow the story seemed a lot funnier in my head than it has in this post.

I'm trying to think what else was in that WakuWaku Café Time... Mayo was talking about... I guess Mayo plays like the guy at Comedie Française, the guy who maybe runs Comedie Française and is like, "Hello citizens, we've got a special present for you today," or, you know, blah blah blah. And she was saying that when she steps up on that little stage-on-the-stage a lot of the underclassmen were like "woohooo, manager!", like whatever her title is as her character, they were like "yayyyyyy!" and for some reason... The audience is really far away, so when the audience is clapping for her, or clapping in general, it's not as... frightening, I guess? But when there's all these people – her friends, her troupe mates – right there, really close, being like "woohoo, go you!" or whatever, she found it really unnerving and kind of froze up for a second. Umezono... what was her nickname, Shige? I guess she's one of the people in the audience, and she was like "Ah, I kind of knew that when we did that you'd probably freeze up." But I guess maybe after only one time of it happening, maybe her batchmate or someone else asked the babies to kind of tone it down and not cheer for her so much because it only messed her up.

I don't know, damn! I'm failing at telling these stories in a more amusing manner.

I'll just tack on here on the end in general – Scarlet Pimpernel ends on Sunday. I can't believe it, you know, I can't believe it's finally over. And I can't believe that Potto-san's retiring. When I saw her little sayonara interview thing on the Sky Stage TV and she was talking about all the letters she got from people just because she was retiring, it really moved her. And just to think that I was one of those people who wanted to write to her just because she was retiring... I don't know, I started tearing up when I watched it, it was really bad. I don't like to lose the long-standing upperclassmen that I’ve come to love in any troupe.

But anyway, um, I guess that's it. I really really appreciate you guys when you transcribe my voice posts, I really do. Because people don't read my posts if they're not in text form. I mean... less people get the information that I'm trying to send out if someone doesn't transcribe them. Not a lot of people actually listen to my voice posts. More people just skip them and wait until someone transcribes them. So that if they don't get transcribed, less people read them. And I suppose it's kind of selfish of me to be so adamant about people reading my drivel, but... yeah. Please, someone transcribe my posts? I really appreciate it? Yeah. Anyway. I’m gonna cut it off there.

Some of us listen when we're *able* to. It just takes like three times as long to listen as to read. And requires speakers. :(

Yay, go Chie! It's good for Touko to be put on the spot. :)

Rereading this, I still think the story about all the little Comédie Française babies going postal for Mayo and scaring her is adorable and hilarious. Overenthusiastic babies FTW. <3

Quite an alluring list of tags ;-) I wonder if Aida gave Radames some outfit, it would make the exchange even more hilarious. I too will miss Potto-san, it was so nice to know that one could survive in Takarazuka without being traditionally pretty.

The voice posts are a bit more difficult to get around to listening to but since it does provide post from you they are a good thing. You may just get the comments a bit later...
