Club-Tutu

Princess Tutu Club
March's contest is now open, and with the spring just around the corner (at least according to the calendar; I'm sure there are plenty of members around the world who locked in the middle of winter who'd disagree, while it is summer for some) we thought it would be the perfect time to explore the seasons. Yes, the challenge this month is to pick one (or more) seasons and have fun with it in the world of Princess Tutu. What is it like in the middle of winter? Does anything important happen during the spring? How do they handle the heat of the summer? Does a character like one season most or one least? What about ballets that draw upon the seasons for inspiration? Your options are limitless!

You have until March 28 to submit your entries to the contests. Good luck!

Countdown to MAR 2015: Seasons

Saturday, March 28th @ 9:00pm

:iconclub-tutu: March 2015 Contest
Seasons


Prompt:
"To every thing there is a season," as they say. And this spring just around the corner (at least by the calendar, anyway), we'll be looking at the seasons. While we didn't get a chance to see much time pass in the series itself, we are asking you to explore the passing and changing of the seasons. Maybe there are seasons that some characters enjoy more than others and some that they hate. Maybe the town looks different in the red blush of fall, dead of winter, or the start of spring. Maybe there are other holidays or special events that are celebrated by the town. Or maybe draw inspiration from ballets that are inspired by the changes of the season.

Deadline: March 28, 11 p.m. PST

Things to keep in mind:
bullletred: The submission must focus on the seasons as part of the illustration or story.

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.
