Her AMV impressed me so much that I decided to translate the lyrcis to English. I also handed it to my professor to see whether the words were precise.
Please remember to open the annotation at the bottom of video and you could read the English lyrics while watching the AMV.
This year's Fakiru Week will also be special for another reason: members of the Japanese fandom overseas will be participating along with us! There have already been a few pieces uploaded to Pixiv to advertise, like this one!
And there is also a Pixiv Fakiru Page made by the user cckh, who originally contacted us about the Japanese Fandom also participating. So this is going to be like a fandom gathering of all corners of the world! We can all come together and celebrate the series and this pairing, whether we all speak the same language or not. To me, that is pretty amazing.
So we hope you come and check out the pages! And we look forward to seeing everyone and their entries!
Title: An Uncommon Witness
Warning: discussions and imagery of violence
Summary: (1920's AU) Duck lived a quiet life until she witnessed a mob murder. Now caught up in a tale involving a persistent detective, a dangerous mobster, and a beautiful actress, will she ever return to her quiet life again? Or will the mob catch up to her first?
Rhapsody in Blue by ~Mangaka-chan on deviantART
The description for the piece is the same as on dA, but basically this picture is partly inspired by a scene from chapter 5 of AUW. The phonograph pictured is a Victrola, made by the Victor Talking Machine Company. The two rows of music are the opening portion of the famous clarinet solo in Rhapsody in Blue, written by George Gershwin in 1924. Most people might know it from Disney's Fantasia, and it's my favorite piece of music from that era.
Princess Tutu, I have missed you so much! And I come bearing a new fanfiction. Please pardon the huge absence. And NO, I have not forgotten about Curse of the Dragon
Here's a warm-up fiction to get me back in the grove. Thanks for all the patience, everyone.
Title: Turning the Page
Pairings: Mytho/Rue, Fakir/Ahiru, a little pinch of one-sided Autor/Rue
Summary: The reasons why they were pulled back into Kinkan from within the story were left unanswered. But, just for now, this was enough. Just a small, simple reunion.
However, I believe that there are enough clues, both shown and implied, that the likely general timeframe of “Princess Tutu” can be extrapolated to a single 25-year period.
Number crunching, refusal to disassociate reality from fiction, doubling back on scholarly paths, and boatloads of overthinking ahead!
( Long essay is loooooong~ )
For those of you who managed to get through all that, I commend you. Thanks for reading!
Anyway, I'm glad this comm is still alive! And I come bearing a little fic.
Title: Pushing the Limits
Series: Princess Tutu
Rating: NC-17. MATURE.
Word Count: 16,487 (…Not even joking.)
Link: (Fanfiction.net): Pushing the Limits
Notes: My first attempt at writing ballet sex! This is post-series and it has some fluffy stuff before it gets into the smut route. I actually had 70% or so of it written for a long time and only just now finished it. (I am ashamed, yes.) And Behind Closed Doors isn’t an on-going fic - it’s like a compilation of one-shots that are mature in nature. The stories don’t relate to each other, so there’s no need to read the other 6 chapters to understand this one.
And this chapter is a very late birthday present for Bethy/mildmilotic. <3
Also, please note the Author’s Note at the end of the fic! I may start taking requests for this series of one-shots if people are in favor of the idea, since my ideas are starting to run a little thin (or all being used for RP purposes, hurr hurr 8D).
The prompts are as follows:
24 - Red
25 - Silence
26 - Dreams
27 - Gift
28 - Light
29 - Play
30 - Forever
For newcomers, this is a week where you can contribute any fan related medium--art, fic, AMVs, craft, etc. that are related to the prompts of each day. For more information, you can read up on the rules and guidelines located here. Feel free to ask questions if you have any. You don't have to be a member of dA to participate, and it's all in good fun! Even if you're not up to contributing this year, it's still worth it to check out other's works.
Hope to see you there!
casually throws the stuff under a cut (that's what they're called, right? please work cut please)
( Under here! )
I never considered that Mytho and Fakir's swords were different sizes. It looks like their sword heights were designed to be relative to the characters' heights.
