Princess Tutu Club
Hey everyone!  The May Contest for 2016 is now open!  This time, we return to the what-ifs to ask the question: what if something else had happened to the Love shard other than what had happened during the series?  What if it HADN'T been tainted by the Raven's blood?  Or what if it HAD been shattered into irreparable pieces?  Or what if something else had happened to it?  It's up to you to think of how it could have been!

Also, now that it's officially on us new admin to run the contests, I want to know what you guys think of them thus far.  I notice that they usually don't get much attention and minus the big one at the beginning of the year, often don't have any participants at all.  What do you think could be done to get some activity going here?  Would more prizes (like an art request, perhaps?) be of interest?  Or are there certain prompts you guys want to be featured?

So far, the prompts for the rest of the year look like this:

[June] Character Spotlight: Ebine
[July] Sports
[August] Sci-fi
[September] Character Spotlight: Raetsel
[October] What-if: Character Death
[November] Food

Do those sound good to you?  Or would you rather have something else this year?

Also related, do you guys care enough about the themes to continue having them?  I was considering retiring them if the lack of interest in them continues for the rest of the year.  What do you guys think?

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:
:bulletpink: Both fanart and fan fiction will be accepted for this contest.
:bulletgreen: Only entries that adhere to the rules set in the contest prompt will be accepted.
:bulletpink: To be an official entry, you must submit your piece into the "2016 MAY Contest" gallery folder by the deadline.
:bulletgreen: After the deadline has passed, the folder will be closed and no new submissions will be accepted.
:bulletpink: As per general contest rules, you are allowed to submit up to three entries. (Admin may only submit one.)
:bulletgreen: If more than three fan fiction/prose entries are received, a separate voting bracket will be held.

Deadline: May 30, 2016, 11 p.m. EST (GMT -5)

Popular Choice: 100 points and feature on the club front page.
Admins' Choice: 60 points and feature on the club front page.


Please keep in mind we only affiliate with related groups. So ballet, Princess Tutu, or Itoh-sensei's other series.

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

The series is actually rather popular, and this is just one of a number of groups here on DA that are dedicated to it. You can check out our affiliates to see the other groups dedicated to Princess Tutu and the artwork and submissions that are submitted to those in addition to the pieces in Club-Tutu.
