C'est moi, la Star

Work Text:

The giraffe summons all the stage girls for a battle royale revue "revue of retribution" he calls it,

"On this revue there are no stakes, no one will be erased, no plays will disappear. It's just to prove who's the true top star."

 

Everyone agrees to fight for the fun of a challenge, and to improve themselves, as Karen says, the stage girls are constantly evolving.

 

From the beginning Claudine springs straight to Maya, everyone thought, "oh boy here we go again" , even maya stiffens at the thought of having to fight Claudine right of the bat, with Akira and Koharu looking at her.

However, when their swords are about to clash Claudine turns her back to maya.

Maya immediately realises her intention and stands back to back

They are ready to take anyone head on.

Everyone else is shocked when instead of attacking Maya she teams up without even asking her to do something.

They wonder if this is the same Claudine that is always eager to challenge the brunette in a fight.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After some time, Maya and Claudine are facing. Akira - Koharu - Shizuha - fumi, karen and hikari, everyone is wary of each other since they are not working together they just manage to get there altogether, on the other hand the mykr duo with complete trust on each other take advantage of their distrust and manage to cut the pins of everyone.

 

Claudine and Maya face each other, less than 10 meters away, near the edge of the stage. Everyone intensely watches waiting for the last fight. Then, Claudine starts walking towards her, Maya is surprised because she cant feel any desire to fight from claudine. She thinks that Claudine is acting strange.

 

When she is less than a meter away, Claudine stabs the ground with her sword, and lets go of the handle.

Everyone is whispering, it doesn't matter, Claudine cups Maya's face and brings her close to her.

Maya, lovingly looking in to her ruby eyes, says

"Ma Claudine <3 "

As their faces grow closer Maya hold on her rapier start to falter,

Some are blushing, others are covering someone else's eyes and some are fed up with that cursi display of affection.

Yet no one expected what happened next.

 

She is about to give in for a kiss, when she notices Claudine forehead coming at her at a ridiculous speed. Everyone is stunned to see Claudine headbut Maya with enough force, that they are pretty sure something cracked. Maya is no better, she is shocked for her lovers actions and from a probable concussion.

"Ma.... Claudine..?"

is the only thing she can say before Claudine starts slashing at her from every angle, a feral onslaught of attacks, is the only way to describe it.

Maya is doing her best to hold on to he rapier and defend herself, she feels that she is being pushed back towards somewhere but is too busy trying not to become sashimi to care.

To say that everyone was astonished would be an understatement, even the stoic king, akira is left with her jaw dropped after seeing Maya being toyed and led around, she didn't remember Claudine being this agressive from her joint practice with siegfeld. The Yumeoji sister cant believe that the kind person who help them solve their differences looks like a madwoman. Kaoruko is no better, she even forgot her foldable fan to cover her open mouth. Futaba, being her best friend, can't believe what she is seeing.

 

Everyone snaps from their reverie when claudine chants

 

" I will dance the dance of love fiercer than anyone, and fly with my wings of freedom higher than everyone else!"

 

Maya looks down and notices that she is standing right in top of the position zero mark, she looks back to claudine, now standing a couple of meters away, preparing for a bull like charge. Maya thinks "I can't parry that, but if I evade on time I'll win"

And so, as Claudine charges at full speed her gem starts shining, with each second, it shines brighter and brighter until no one can see anything.

Maya prepares to receive the hit...............................................................................................................................................................................

but it never comes.

 

As the light disappears so did Claudine, no one knows where she went, everyone starts asking questions and mumbling, some concerned some waiting to see how it ends.

 

Maya is looking everywhere, there is nothing to hide behind the stage is barren.

Nana, with years of experience, looks for the giraffe, and follows his gaze towards the ceiling,

"Maya chan, up" Nana shouts,

Maya barely manages to look up........................................................................................................................................................................

 

and she cant move.............................................................................................................................................................................................

What she sees is...............................................................................................................................................................................................

A falling star.

 

That's the only way to call it.

 

At the same time Maya was turning to look up,

 

Claudine's voice silences everyone, and gathers all the attention on her

 

"C'est moi, la Star!" she roars

 

Claudine is falling, with enough speed to leave after images,

 

all reflectors are on her, no one can tear their gaze from the star.

 

She is shining like the star of the heavens,

 

She is falling like a meteor, burning everything and lighting the horizon

 

Her sword aimed with only one target in mind, there is no hesitation, no faltering.

 

And so she falls to the stage............................................................................................................................................

A thunderous blast spreads through the teather.

 

Some are blown away from the aftermath of the crash, some hold to their weapons for support

 

Before maya can even react. scream or even feel pain

 

She realizes .....

 

she is pinned to the ground in big crater with "Etincelle de fierte" piercing,

 

her golden pin,

her coat,

her body

and the ground.

Claudine, with the biggest shit eating grin that puts Kaoruko and Yachiyo to shame,

Calmly says "Position zero "
