Just a heads up that it's about a week before the May contest of "What if: Love shard" ends!  We now have some points for prizes (100 for Popular choice, 60 for Admin choice) thanks to magicofthepiper, so get those entries in soon!

Also, a question for you all: would you want to have club journal features as an additional club activity?  I just don't know how we'd decide which fan works to feature.  Do you all have any ideas?

What-if: The Love Shard

Once upon a time, there was a prince. The prince shattered his heart and the shards scattered across the town. One by one, the shards were gathered by Princess Tutu. One of these shards was Love, found inside a pendant.

But this story did not go as expected...

In the original version of Princess Tutu, the Love shard was picked up by Mytho through a pendant that Edel had obtained. It had then been soaked in Raven's blood and given back to the Prince unknowingly. We go back to the what-ifs once again to wonder what would happen if something different happened to the Love shard. What if it had never been soaked in Raven's blood? What if it had been shattered into irreparable pieces as it almost had on Kraehe's orders? How would the story play out then? What if?

Things to keep in mind:
:bulletred: The entry must have had something different happen to the heart shard of Love than what had happened in the original story; the divergence can be at any point between the Love shard's creation to the end of the series canon.
:bulletblack: The work should focus on the main characters of the series proper.

To Enter:

To Falter by Waifine
Popular Choice: "To Falter" by Waifine
Heart UnbrokenPrince Siegfried had no time to be surprised when his last option but one succeeded.
The thought of invoking the last uncertain magic, of piercing his own heart to release the feelings that would then be free to fight on their own, had been in the back of his mind ever since his first sight of the Raven that had ravaged his kingdom. But there was always the doubt – he might simply die, as any ordinary man must, and then everything that was left would be truly lost to the hideous greed of the enemy. Duty forbade it, yet. He did not permit himself to think of Princess Tutu; those reflections were for the peace before the Raven, or the peace he might find after, although the hermit whose words his hopes hung upon seemed to think that only that final shattering would call her ....
The Prince was fighting on instinct, without leisure for thought. The Raven was trying to blast his enemy from the air, and was fully extending his wings for a final time, and the Prince had begun to move a

The First Battle of the RavenThe Raven had first touched down in a small town in Germany named Goldkrone, ironically one of the few cities in the world with a still complete wall built around it.  When it appeared, no one knew from where this gargantuan sentient monster came from, but it wasted no time in letting the world know its presence.
It darkened the skies and spread chaos throughout the region, covering the land in a black cloud of malicious crows, all demanding that they give them "the Prince's heart".  There was only one strange force that seemed to be able to battle against this menace, and all most could see of it was a flurry of flower petals in the air that flew hither and fro.
The people of Germany were baffled at this seemingly extraterrestrial invader in their midst, and the government spared no time in declaring a state of emergency and sending in troops to free the town from its clutches.
The battle was fierce and astonishing to watch.  This being was obviously used to terrorizing

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.
