princess tutu god tiers!
ahiru: page of hope. she exploits hope by inspiring it in others. do i even need to say anything about this?? ahiru spreads belief. her strength is her ability to embue others with strength, to make them feel hope.
mytho: prince of heart. he destroys heart and destroys with heart. he literally destroys his own heart to protect everyone and later seeks to steal the hearts of others when his purpose is inverted.
fakir: knight of doom. he exploits doom to its available potential. his whole arc is about his inevitable death and his ultimate futility; it’s his origin story as a knight and, in his quest as a writer, what he struggles to defeat by taking the third, unpresented option (wrote more about that here)
rue: witch of void: changes things through void. rue struggles with futility, obfuscation of her identity/purpose, irrelevance, submission (to the raven), and the unknown, all of which are markers of a void player.
I hate that I take so long to do things
I was working on the shading for this, but then this popped up in the Princess Tutu tag and my picture’s basically the same, so i decided it’s best i quit
screams and squeezes cheeks together
can we take a moment to appreciate every frame of Ahiru’s face ever
hobbies: watching duck wife; pretending not to write duck wife back into a sweet-ass loli wife; being bad at things
i think the reason happy endings leave me feeling empty and sad endings leave me less than a husk is because i can only ship these two in a tragic star crossed way. I really like the idea of fakir slowly breaking under the stress of his own ~*internal angst*~ regarding ahiru and his desire to see her human again. being in dokis with a duck is hard! i especially like the idea of him succumbing to the same follies as drosselmeyer because without the creep-ass old dude book club to keep tabs on his fanfictions, and his only tether to morality being a duck, who is to stop him skewing things in his head?? who will stop him from writing a story that propagates an endless tragic cycle of death and rebirth where maybe he can get his smoochies on with his duck girlfriend except as the same species at some point?? instead of being stuck in one stagnant fairytale they could be stuck in an endless loop of stagnant fairytales
basically what i am saying here is why the fuck aren’t there like one thousand fics about fakir having shitty ethics and doing awful things out of love why
