The spawn of :iconclub-tutu:'s April Fools Joke :XD:

Gender-bent, steampunk Princess Tutu. With this comes a story. I WORKED SO HARD, AND NOW 8D

WARNING: LONG COMMENT
____________________
Steampunk.d is a story of a boy named Ahiru and his dream to dance with his beloved caretaker, Miyu. (Mytho)

In Kinkan, the most technologically advanced city on the edge of the world, steam is the one source of power, fueling inventions such as vehicles, appliances, machinery, and every kind of invention you can think of.

Ahiru is a no-name orphan without legs, having lost them in the Skyship war seven years ago. He is an inventor, and his main project is the steam limbs: moving, working limbs to replace his simple prosthetic ones.

His wish is to dance with Miyu, and if ever, show her how he felt about her.

But when a crisis plunges Kinkan into peril, and Sky pirates invade the city in a mercilessly complicated plot involving the city's mechanism, Ahiru must choose between his own dreams, and the future of his home.

___________________________

Characters:

Ahiru: a thirteen-year old inventor who ultimately has Kinkan's destiny on his shoulders and a past returning to haunt him.

Fakia: A teenage metallurgist-in-training and weapon's expert, Ahiru's self-employed protector.

Miyu: Caretaker of the orphanage (though she has a secret hidden behind her kindess)

Kuroha "Ro": An infamous sky pirate who sweeps Miyu off her feet.

Drosselmeyer: Legendary father of Kinkan's mechanism, the center of Kinkan's power and stability. It was said that he lived for thousands of years, converting his body into machinery.

Aotoa: Book keeper and historian of Kinkan. Her cat seems to pop up everywhere.

_________________________
Turning Rue into a sky pirate is the best thing I've ever done :XD:

upper right: Fakia (Fakir), center:Ahiru, left: Kuroha (Rue), Lower left: Miyu (Mytho), Lower right: Aotoa (Autor)

and kid Ahiru with stump legs.

On the left is Edel the tick-tock woman. :D

Down near kid Ahiru is Kuroha's pirate Sky ship, with a raven on the blimp. Still wondering what to call it though XD It's a lot like a zeppelin.


I'm so proud.

To be colored next time, if ever ;)

I'll draw more though, and try getting into the funk of it.

Understandable, don't worry too much...I've gotten to the 5th chapter of one of my PT fanfics before I ran myself into a (not literal!) wall. :cries: I want to rewrite it, but so many people have already read it in the style it is now...:dummy: ^^;

Yay for pictures! :D

This story needs to come to fruition. This is so epic. I love the details and the looks of all the reversed-gender characters. You put a lot of though in this.

OH MY GOSH.

I'm sorry D: If you really would like to see the story come to fruition, I'll restart xD

Aww. Well that's alright. I wouldn't want to impose. If ever you find yourself inspired to do it though I certainly won't hold you back. Haha. But truly, there's no rush or anything. I was merely curious if you had it about and I just missed it.

I don't have as much inspiration to write it all down, but I'm sure to sketch more about it in the near future ;3

Awesome! I especially like the idea of steam-Borg Drosselmeyer creating the mechanism that runs the city. The artificial legs and metallurgist Fakia are pretty awesome as well!

I'm glad you pointed out the airship, the blimp design looks great! If it still needs a name, well the latin name for the raven is Corvus corax, both of which would sound pretty sweet.

cool idea 8D

I'll consider the name (it IS cool) although maybe not for the ship itself, but perhaps an old name of it or an important part of its mechanism :D

and thank you <3 Glad you like it.

Ooooh! The mechanical legs caught my attention quickly.

Like minds: I was also thinking of including a raven emblem on blimps in a more detailed version of what I did come up with. Glad you managed to include this and so much detail in the piece.

So much love to you for doing this.:heart: And in less than 24 hours! Amazing!

I love the threads of the story you've started, and despite the April fools joke, I hope you keep playing with the concept!

Aotoa and Fakia look gorgeous! And the detail on Ahiru's mechanical legs is impressive.
