My fave Princess Tutu is Rue being super protective of Ahiru post series. Before Rue leaves for the story, she lets Fakir know she’ll come back to visit Ahiru sometimes, and if he’s not treating her like a princess, his ass is grass.

And Fakir gets all flustered, and is like “what is your problem?!” But he still does tell her in his own gruff way that he promised to stay with Ahiru and that she has nothing worry about. Rue accepts this, but she’ll always ask Ahiru if Fakir is treating her well, to which Ahiru always gives a nod. This doesn’t stop Rue and Fakir from bickering about anything at all. Ahiru always steps in the middle, frantically trying to break them up with emphatic quacks. They quickly break it up when they notice Ahiru trying to stop them, and that they've nearly stepped on her. Then they start frantically apologising to her.

 It’s always interesting to see people liveblogging the first few episodes of Princess Tutu. Because the reaction is almost always the same: “what the hell am I watching?” And I remember feeling the same way when I first watched it. 

But, “A masterpiece” is always the answer that immediately pops into my head. And I mean it. This show, with anthropomorphic feline ballet teachers who’re obsessed with marriage, and anteater ballerinas, is honestly one of the most subversive, beautiful and heartfelt narratives I’ve ever encountered.

When people dismiss Anthy or Rue for being horrible and evil, I feel they miss out on something. And I don't just mean... the point. But interesting, well-developed character with amazing and inspirational character arcs. Those so many things you can get from these characters when hampered by misogyny. And yeah, the same thing could be said for many other women in fiction.  

Because these things fun and spirit lifting, here's

 I've already picked my subjects for when I start uni again in March. I'm going to study Retelling Myths and Tales: Classic to Contemporary and Editing.  I'm excited about both of them, but I'm especially excited about the first one. Because studying the origins of myths and fairy tales and looking at ways of reinterpreting them is relevant to my interests. 

I'm going to participate in the March [livejournal.com profile] womenlovefest It's a week long fest dedicated to celebrating and defending unappreciated ladies in fandom. The held a fest last year and people came up with some amazing things!  I've claimed Rue and Tsubomi Hanasaki from Heartcatch Precure (I have an absurd amount of love for that show). I'll probably do something for Ahiru too. I'm going to start writing about them very early so I have time for the other things going on that month.

 1.  I went to my grading today. It took me a while to get their because I've been preoccupied with a lot of things over the last few months, but I finally got there and I have my yellow belt! I'm finally a yellow belt! \o/ 

2. I can't tell you how happy I am to see Twelve Kingdoms things being blogged on Tumblr. It was getting so little attention for a long time. Here is the latest gorgeous fanart I reblogged on my journal. strangeandamazing.tumblr.com/post/7443385574/by-camayu Click on The Twelve Kingdoms tag to see more beautiful fanworks and screenshots.

3. It's freezing down here! It's supposed to be the coldest winter we've had in years. And yeah, it definitely seems that way. I'm a little jealous of those of you in the northern hemisphere experiencing summer.  
4. I've only got three more episodes of my Princess Tutu rewatch to go! I'll ramble about it when I'm done. Relatedly, this is epic and is up there with Hall Om Mig as one of the most amazing Princess Tutu vids I've seen.

   I've been preoccupied with a few rl things the last couple of days. I'll get around to writing a Princess Tutu reaction post and finishing memes tomorrow. For now, have this amazing trailer for the remastered version of Revolutionary Girl Utena. I MUST GET THIS ONE DAY. IT LOOKS SO PRETTY.

 I wish I could participate in the upcoming, [info]fma_ladyfest. But I'm too occupied with other things at the moment. I'm writing a script for uni at the moment about two girls who go to acting school, become BFF and help each other become better actors. It's doesn't sound or feel too exciting at the moment. I need to work on the character dynamics. I feel as though I don't have a very firm grasp on them yet. 

I read all available volumes of Pumpkin Scissors, but I've procrastinated on posting my opinions on it. Basically, it is awesome and Alice Malvin is the greatest. Female characters don't often get to play the part of the very idealistic, yet strategically challenged hero. I love the great reversal of roles in this manga, with Alice as the brave and reckless herione, with Randel being the more patient and practical one. I absolutely adore the fact he hero-worships Alice. He follows her around like a puppy dog and becomes enthusiastic about war relief because of her. I just love him so much. <33 I can definitely see where the comparison between this series and FMA. They're both very hopeful narrative excellent world-building and government conspiracies. Unfortunately, we have to wait a long time to learn about the conspiracy, but I firmly believe IT WILL BE WORTH THE LONG, LONG WAIT. 

I've decided I really need to re-watch the whole series of Princess Tutu when things settle down a little. It's been so, so long since I've watched it all. I miss it and feel obligated to watch my forever show in its entirety for the fourth time.
