Tutu’s henshin: One of my first attempts to make a new henshin for Tutu (no “shine effects” included so it looks weird). I ended up discarding this one and started a new so I might as well show it to you. This is part of the process, you make something but end up not using it. Still very very valuable in learning.
Huggers: This was supposed to be used at some point. There will be hugs no worries but maybe not this one. Again for practice.
Been stewing on Autor’s role in this AU and Ive finally sat down and sketched him out boys heres what we got:
Thanks to his distant, distant relation to Drosselmeyer, his memory of the events during the Ravens Reign isn’t completely gone -- but its incredibly fractured and hazy. It’s more of a gut feeling.
Teaches Piano at Goldencrown Academy - partly so he can stalk Fakir and also because he likes teaching because it inflates his ego
Genuinely does not want to threaten Duck/Fakir/Anybody, he’s just had the story on the tip of his tongue for far too long and kinda goes a little haywire at the prospect of getting answers
Fakir just...kind of puts up with his presence at the Academy, and the students get excited whenever they bump into each other because the tension is so palpable they always think they’re going to break out into a fight - which it never does at least before Duck shows up
Fakir: Professor Autor (threatening) / Autor: Professor Fakir (derogatory)
Duck still hates him for STARVING AND DENYING FAKIR SLEEP helLO??????
Autor does not strike me as a cowardly person (dude fought off an axe with a dictionary) but boy does he start to rethink his approach when he realizes the person who he is provoking could very well write him out of existence
i feel there's something really beautiful about how ahiru and fakir originally bonded over their shared and unrequited love for mytho, like i think that's just so incredibly poignant
#regardless of how warped and possessive fakir's love for mytho was #and regardless of how worshipful and naive ahiru's love of mytho was #both of them loved mytho in their own way and they were willing to dedicate their whole lives to protecting him (in their own different way #and to me that's so sweet like. the foundation of their relationship is their shared love of another person #i just love fakiru okay? i love them sm #fakiru#fakir#ahiru#mytho#princess tutu
Duck dancing with a faceless Prince that turns into Fakir in the opening for season 2 is brilliant foreshadowing because the series closes with Duck dancing with Fakir in the lake of despair and I think that's fantastic.
Fakir and Duck are just. Amazing. So powerful. Drosselmeyer didn't even stand a chance and he put them together. He tried pitting them against one another but he failed so miserably. They ended up being together and in love AND they beat him in his own game. Stan fakiru.
ngl LOVE that fakir only started to fall in love w/ ahiru once he realized she was a duck lol.....
#kk watches princess tutu #i think it has something to do with realizing she's not just a random girl who is an all-powerful princess tutu as well #humble beginnings? the fact that he saw compassion in her as a duck? hm #fakiru
OKAY HAHA HERE ARE MY FAKIRU FAN KIDS MY DUDES!!! The older girl is Kasasagi (Magpie for the english dub) and their baby boy is Latif (meaning 'kind'!). Kasa/Maggie's a very extroverted cheery child and Latif is an emotional papa's kid. 🥺🙏
BONUS IMAGES - Fakir wearing Ahiru's clips/hairbands bcuz he once got complimented by Her for wearing them so he never stopped using them since:
... fakiru, post-canon, except reverse princess and the frog trope. he kisses her, she turns into a human... but problems ensue. her being human caused an imbalance in the story and begins to harm other’s happily ever afters. in the end, they get married, kiss and turn into ✨ducks✨ and live happily ever after.
