Title: Fairytale Monologue
Fandom: Princess Tutu
Pairing: hints of Ahiru/Fakir and Rue/Mytho
Notes: Random babbling. Don't expect a concrete story. Also "mukashi, mukashi" translates into "once upon a time..."

Mukashi, mukashi...

There was a prince and a raven..

no, no, that's not where the story begins.

Try again.

Mukashi, mukashi...

there was a man who had his hands cut off and wrote a story to salvage his...

salvage his pride? salvage his anger? or maybe because he enjoyed the tragedies of others, the way they fell to pieces once he picked up the strings. Dolls, dolls..

Try again.

Mukashi, mukashi...

There was a duck who was chosen to play the role no one else would play.

She changed it, changed the fate of her existence, changed the lives around her...

Destined to die as a bitter beacon of light.

Such was her existence written in blood by the author.

Again, we have missed the point.

Try again.

Mukashi, mukashi...

There was a girl who lived with the raven and learned to love them. Or feared them. It was one and the same. She loved the prince too, the empty prince with an empty container.

But the story moved to another's will.

There can never be two princesses. And she had to play the villain.

Why was she playing the villain?

It was her role in the story, dictated by the author.

We lost the thread. The story has lost its plot.

Try again.

Mukashi, mukashi...

There was a knight. But he died. And lived? Both. He did both.

He wanted to protect the prince.

He ended up protecting himself. And the princess that was never his.

He was only a knight. Not a prince.

He couldn't have her.

Such was the tale.

Wait, wait, where's the story?

Never mind, we won't try anymore.

Shall we turn to the end?

Princess Tutu canon pimping will come later hopefully

I ♥ Princess Tutu!!!

It isn't all big here in Cali though... ;_;

...at least where I live anyway
That was a great ficlet... and I guess I have you to blame for my obsession with the anime. I didn't even know it existed until you pimped it, and now I have seen every episode, read ever piece of Fakir/Ahiru fanfic I can get my hands on and I'm even writing one of my own.

^_^ And I'm loving every minute of it!

[that icon has never been so true :D]

YOU MADE MY DAY WITH THAT COMMENT. :D I've been waiting for people to get the hint. I rarely pimp something unless it's made of absolute love and amazingness. And Fakir/Ahiru owns your soul and Rue/Mytho, but hey! They're canon! XD

There's a good Fakir/Ahiru community (fakirahiru as well as a ship_manifesto essay up. I recommend you to check both.
Already on it... seriously, watched up to episode 23 then had to stay up past midnight watching the rest, after I'd finished watching them it was must-find-fakir/ahiru-fanfic... Didn't get much sleep that night.

Glad to have made your day! Always good to have been of service. I've also got one of my friends hooked as well! She hasn't got to season 2 yet though, so I'm waiting for her fakir/ahiru squeeing.
I AM ALREADY FAKIR/AHIRU SQUEEING. And I would be on series 2 already were my computer not a TOTAL SPAZZ OMG.

Princess Tutu for the win! And in the dub Fakir's voice is done by Chris Patton! *geek glee* Alas, they don't sell it over here!
D: I FEEL YOUR PAIN. They don't sell it in Singapore and the US ones are quite expensive. Nevertheless, I will force my dad into buying me the DVDS for Christmas. And if all else falls, save up money for it.
