Step 1: Get moepanda to develop crush on guy
Step 2: Introduce moepanda's role model, who is gorgeous, who also likes guy
Step 3: Guy hangs out with hot rolemodel, plucky moepanda struggles to make her way in her chosen profession with sweet innocence, adorable "grit", nyan~nyan plucky girl idol etc
Step 4: Things get heavy between hot rolemodel, DESPAIR! The viewer gets nervous!
Step 5: SWITCH! Now hot rolemodel girl is in a pinch, and moepanda is riding high-- fame, fortune, guy's attention, etc!
We will now progress with steps 6-10, which entail hot rolemodel losing confidence and taking over moepanda's place as the hard luck longshot love interest trying to make her way through pluck, grit, etc while moepanda is the popular one who suceeds at her original dream, saves universe etc but loses guy to rolemodel.
