Lament in the Red-Light District - angst sliceoflife originalcharacter edoperiod katsuneteto - main story image



In the red-light district, I stare again at the colored umbrellas fluttering under the rain. Behind my beautiful and crimson stained bars, I sigh. A customer walks in, and I stand gracefully, my glossy lips shinning under the lanterns that shaded me with red and faint yellow. "Welcome, please enter." 


Things you should know before reading

  • Yoshiwara was the red-light district of Edo (now Tokyo) during the Edo period (in Japan).
  • The red-light district is a part of an urban area where there is a concentration of prostitution.
  • Lament /ləˈment/ is defined as a passionate expression of grief.




Title: Yoshiwara Lament

Author: simulacrum

Length: One-shot

Genre: Slice of life and Angst

A/N: Inspired by a song from Vocaloid, which was originally sang by Kasane Teto, but the first time I heard the song was a cover sang by 96neko from Nico Nico Douga! ^-^ I really love her voice, and the cover she did for Yoshiwara Lament.

This was such an interesting fic. I really, really enjoyed this, I haven't really seen vocaloids portrrayed this way, and I have to say I really like it.

influx  on says about chapter 1:
this was just beautiful... it's been ages since i read a (somewhat) vocaloid fic... and i need to drown in their songs too. please recommend me some because i've been straying away from vocaloid for too long omg.

this was very well-written and very vividly imagined. <3
