Club Rules

:spotlight-left: R U L E S :spotlight-right:

01) You must be a member to submit artwork/fanfic/cosplay-photos or participate in a contest. To become a member, you just request to join the group--there's a link at the top of the front page.

02) Submissions must be focused on Princess Tutu or its characters.

03) While we here at Club-Tutu love fanfiction, doujin, and many of the original characters (OCs) included in them, please keep all club submissions primarily focused on the pre-existing PTT characters. (Alternate Universe (AU) versions of PTT characters are acceptable.) Some cases where the inclusion of an OC is minor to the overall piece are acceptable; this will be judged on a case by case basis by the admins.

04) Club-Tutu supports ALL pairings! No matter how crack~y it gets. We even accept "mature" deviations, but we do enforce the DA policy of setting maturity warning on such deviations.

05) All club submissions must be of your own creation. (Although we do allow the use of valid stock imagery so long as the guidelines of using the stock are adhered to.)
Theft of other artist's work, scans of official PTT art, PTT screenshots, or altered screenshots will be reported to DA and result in immediate removal from Club-Tutu.
This does mean we also cannot post your friend's art to the club. We must have the written permission of the original artist in the form of a submit note.
We realize this seems harsh, but we are just acting in accordance with deviantART policy. (Besides, we hunt art thieves for sport. Meh!)

If you're confused as to what we mean in rule 05, please read these DA FAQs.
:bulletred: FAQ #8: What are violations of the DeviantArt copyright policy?
:bulletred: FAQ #572: What does DeviantArt consider "Fan Art" to be?
:bulletred: FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?
:bulletred: FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?
:bulletred: FAQ #193: How do I prove that I had permission to use someone's work?
:bulletred: FAQ #557: Can I submit art which I have made using a "base" (or line art) created by someone else?

06) All club submissions must be clean* and completed pieces. Please do not submit works in progress (WIPs).

* Clean means clear lines and easy to look at, clean does NOT refer to the artists skill OR require pieces to be in color.

07) In order to keep the gallery from being flooded with an overwhelming amount of submissions from one person at a time, submissions of both visual art and fanfiction are limited to five per week.

08) We will not post doujinshi (fan comics) or multiple chapter fan fictions that are more than 3 deviations long. We will be happy to allow the any 3 pages/chapters of these to encourage people to look at the entire work, but we will not accept the entire thing.

09) The art posted here is NOT stock. Each piece belongs to the original artist. Do NOT use or distribute the art "as is", or in altered forms such as icons, wallpapers, stamps, etc. If you want to use a piece for something else PLEASE contact the artist for permission.

10) Club-Tutu supports the legal releases of Princess Tutu in all its forms. Do not attempt to use Club-Tutu to request, advertise, or distribute illegal Princess Tutu episodes, video clips, or manga scans. Any such requests or answers in comments on the club DA account will be hidden and your status as a club member will come under review by the admins. (We're not going to go around policing your personal accounts, but keep it off the club DA account.)



:spotlight-left: C O N T E S T S :spotlight-right:

There will be two winners for each contest. First place will be decided by popular vote. Second place will be Admins' Choice. The prizes are generally a feature on the Club-Tutu front page. Special prizes will be awarded for the annual club anniversary contest.

We have previously asked the group members if they were interested in having a gallery that featured original characters, and after some discussion, it was decided not to have one. This option may be offered again in the future.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share with my fellow Club-Tutu members the names of a few books I've stumbled upon in the past few years that reminded me of Princess Tutu and therefore thought you all might enjoy them as well. They are as follows:

:bulletblack: The Undone Fairytale - A hilarious picture book. Because you, the reader, are reading the story and turning the pages too fast, the author (who's job reminds me of a movie director's), Ned the illustrator, and the whole cast of the story aren't prepared for the next page. For starters, you read so fast that by the 3 or 4 page Ned doesn't have time to design a crown for the king, so the king wears a donut instead....and it just goes downhill from there. A funny story about what happens to storybook inhabitants when they aren't prepared for the book's pages to be turned.

:bulletblack: The Great Good Thing - A children's novel about a storybook, the characters within it, and how they and their story influence a reader throughout her life; from childhood to adulthood. I've never read a story quite like this before and, since reading it, have yet to read any others like it. The characters are aware they are in a child's fairytale book; the dialogue is like a script to them and the story a play they must act out. When the book is closed the princess can be found leaning against the letter 'd' from the sentence 'The end.' and wonders what exists beyond the edges of the pages of her story. When the reader is eating a pb&j sandwich while reading one afternoon and a drop of jelly lands on the open page, the queen's royal gown is splattered and stained with jelly. An extremely unique fairytale that made me question my view of the books I read (like the time I was eating pudding and some of it fell on the Harry Potter book I was reading at the time; did I unknowingly stain some poor wizard's or witch's robes with chocolate?).

:bulletblack: Theatre Illuminata Trilogy - What if 'The Prince and the Raven' had been a play and had been completed? Welcome to the Theatre Illuminata, where every character from every play ever written lives. Here, the script is law and not to be defied, though some characters rebel and attempt to break free of the parts written for them. Then there's our heroine Bertie, she's lived in the theater her whole life, only she doesn't belong in any of the plays. Not only that, but she soon discovers she is a Playwright, a person with the power to write new pages into the book (script) and edit the old ones, with disastrous results. Turns out you must be extremely careful with your word choice if you're a Playwright. Accompanying her on her journey are the sweet-toothed, wise-cracking, sometimes-very-rude quartet of fairies from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and two very handsome, very different boys. For those of you who hated the multiple love triangles in Princess Tutu (or just hate love triangles in general), fear not. While I can't explain why that won't be an issue without spoiling the end of the second book, I beg you to not let the romantic complications stop you from reading. Trust me, Bertie's choice/solution is unexpected, satisfying, and not-to-be-missed.

I hope those of you who choose to pick up these books in the future (or if you have already read any of them), you'll find them as satisfying reads as I did. Personally, I think the whole characters-struggling-against-the-story-written-for-them has vastly untapped potential in the world of authors and stories and it's a piety more people don't try to explore this particular angle. If I come across any other novels or stories I think fellow Princess Tutu fans enjoy I'll be sure to let you all know.^^ Ta-ta for now.
