"I adore the way fan fiction writers engage with and critique source texts, by manipulating them and breaking their rules. Some of it is straight-up homage, but a lot of [fan fiction] is really aggressive towards the source text. One tends to think of it as written by total fanboys and fangirls as a kind of worshipful act, but a lot of times you’ll read these stories and it’ll be like ‘What if Star Trek had an openly gay character on the bridge?’ And of course the point is that they don’t, and they wouldn’t, because they don’t have the balls, or they are beholden to their advertisers, or whatever. There’s a powerful critique, almost punk-like anger, being expressed there—which I find fascinating and interesting and cool."

Lev Grossman (via theadventuresofcargline)

This is very true - I’ve seen innumerable fanfics of people saying, “I could do this better than they did.”

And quite frequently, they do.

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS.

It has come to my attention that pretty much no one understands what a fucking amazing, badass show Princess Tutu is. What, you think just because it’s got a girly-ass name and a ballerina fighting for true love it can’t be fucking awesome?

Oh you are not prepared.

Imma give you a list of reasons why this show is amazing, starting with this video. 

Watch it and may your life be forever changed.

I think at this point pretty much everyone has seen this video, but reblogging it just in case. It never gets old.

Forever reblogging this video.

Always reblog!

I dare anyone to find a more perfectly executed, series encompassing AMV than this one.

Goddamn I love this AMV.

I still watch this video every goddamned time I see it and it is still the best amv I’ve ever seen.

No seriously go watch Princess Tutu - it’s amazing. It takes until about episode 3 until it grabs you, but once it has you it’s one of those shows that you can’t stop watching.

soooo I still desperately need to watch this.

I’m in the middle of a Princess Tutu rewatch, and GODDAMN do you need to watch it.  I’m blown away not just by how good it is, but by just how much is foreshadowed in the first 4 episodes alone.  The whole series is pretty much crafted perfectly from start to finish.

GUYS I TOOK A CLASS ON THIS SHOW TWO CREDITS AT MY UNIVERSITY IT IS EXACTLY AS GOOD AS EVERYONE SAYS!!!!!!!!!

Listen, internet.

I’m a man. I’m in the air force and I spend my days working out and eating steaks and drinking beer. 

But GODDAMN do I love Princess Tutu. I love the characters, the music, the metafictional narrative, the dancing, even the dancing. I love the gut-twisting tragedy, the out-of-nowhere plot twists, the dimensionality of each character in the show, and the way everything that seems simple just unfolds into a huge web of hidden meanings and lies. 

Everyone needs to watch this show. Everyone.
