|Reviews for Princess Tutu: Chapter of the Bird
| Meta-Akira chapter 26 . 3/1/2017
Really? No note at the very end detailing your thoughts at wrapping this story up? Unless mine eyes deceive me when I see that little "Complete" in the story details.
All in all, I think it's nothing short of appalling how few reviews this marvelous story has, considering it's length and span (I was in shock to see that you had started this story in 2004). This story has so much thought and effort put into it, the words are practically steeped in it! And though I rarely looked up the musical citations at the end of each chapter, I did listen to a couple, and it really demonstrates how much you poured into this story! And it was a wonderful touch, keeping with the style of the anime to have a line up of classical music.
Goodness gracious, I've been enjoying this fic for a couple years now, and it is quite a feat. I love how you pulled off the original characters (does Caras count as an original character? Perhaps more an original character concept...). Sagi and Caras were both quite in-depth, and I was fascinated by the backstory you provided for the Raven.
I also find that this story did a great deal towards tying up loose ends from the original story, while still leaving it feeling open-ended and ambiguous. Not the standard "happily ever after", which oddly enough, fits Princess Tutu to a T. Perhaps not all will be a happy ending, but it shall be what they decide it to be, no more and no less.
The only thing is that Fakir still feels rather unresolved... I dunno, maybe just a lack of presence after the end of the struggle...
But I've prattled on long enough. Time to bring this lengthy review to an end. Kudos to you, many times over, for seeing this story through to its end, despite how long it took to do so. That takes an impressive dedication that I find to be nothing short of admirable.
Whatever you choose to put your writing talents to in the future, I wish you the best of luck! Thank you for the delightful adventure!

Hi. Just want to thank you so much for completing this story..It has a very beautiful fairytale quality to it. It just seems so timeless...I did hope for a little Fakiru, but all in all a wonderful story. I'm pretty sure that if they ever wanted to create a third season for Princess Tutu, I would just say, "HEY! You guys don't even have to think of a story, there's a perfect story right HERE!"
Seriously, at times I just totally forgot that this was actually a fanfic.
I hope that you continue to write stories that truly capture a person's imagination, just like this story has undoubtedly caught mine. Happy writing and good luck!

You should make more like this when you have time. Add little romance, family and more adventure if you ask.

Loved the ending obviously!
Just a little sad we don't get to see more fakiru but honestly this is much better...
Thank you very much for completing this fic. It was in character, with beautiful music chosen to go with the fic. Amazing story and beautifully written. So sad that it's over.

I'm so glad you ended up finishing this! I think it's a great continuation of what happened in the show, and the characters were well written! I remember reading this when you had about six chapters done, but it had been dropped. I was excited that you picked it up and eagerly waited for each new set of chapters to be published. Now you're done, and I'm so happy that this fanfiction continued and received a proper conclusion!
| James Birdsong chapter 26 . 12/17/2016
Excellent two chapters obviously

Oh yes! I'm so happy you managed to finish it! A little sad it's finished too, but well, now I can re-read it since the beginning, when I'll have the time. Oh, and i'm very happy you mention me in the thanks!
I loved the conclusion for the Raven! At the beginning, him choosing to be Caras again seemed a little fast, but weirdly, when Fakirr sees it with the eyes of a storyteller, it feels more logical, and we understand him better like he does. I love that they were forced to work together to defeat Drosselmeyer, and I love that Author helped too! I'm just a little sad Ahiru got so little to do in this ending. I mean, in action, because her emotional ending was very moving and I loved it a lot.
In general, I lived that you took time for your happy ending, showing everyone. It was very cool! And even Drosselmeyer, of course I would have wished him worse, but it suits him very well, this ending as an annoying ghost. :-)
Do you intend put it on AO3? I'd like to rec it to everyone, and on this site it's easier to download rather than read online.
Thanks again for this fantastic story, and this great conclusion!

Your story captures Princess Tutu so well, for a minute I forgot I was reading a fanfic! Everything about it is so accurate to the original. You even include music pieces to go along with the story. I can see everything in the story actually happening as an episode. I look forward to reading the rest of it and seeing how the story turns out!

Hi. Just wanted to say that this is one of the most amazing fanfics I have ever read. It's extremely well thought out..right down to the music in each scene.. so as I wait with great anticipation for the last chapter I would just like to say job well done. You have absolutely caught the heart of the show and for that I am extremely glad. Every time I read this I have to keep reminding myself that it is actually a fanfic and not an official sequel to the original series..So totally in love with this..Hope you update soon!

Awesome as ever! What is the link between Trutho and the Raven? I really wonder. Now we get suspense at both sides of the story!
I can't wait fo the ending. It's been more than 10 years and it wa worth every day.
| Nelja chapter 23 . 8/23/2016
Haaaa; a short chapter, but very moving! I love the inner conflict of Caras that he refuses to acknowledge but the sword does. And how he becomes the Raven anyways, and there's still hope when they protect his body.
The short scene with Malen and Freya was touching too. I love these PoVs of outsiders.
| James Birdsong chapter 24 . 8/22/2016
Good two chapters!
| Nelja chapter 22 . 4/15/2016
Oh, I love so much the evolution of Rue in here! It's not the only thing I liked, of course. I really like the direction the plot takes, Takako being completely unfazed by her kidnapping, Autor solving a mystery, and the big battle looming at the horizon. I'm less invested in the Trutho plot, but I'm sure it's going somewhere and the two will mix again in a surprising way!
Thank you again for this fic, it's on of the best I've ever read in any fandom.
| James Birdsong chapter 22 . 4/15/2016
Good ten chapters.
