The Perfect Gift by Kiyomi-chan16 The Perfect Gift by Kiyomi-chan16
Hello Princess Tutu fans! ^^

I had been seen beautiful Christmas-themed PT fanarts! ^^ The Nutcracker is perfect for them! My favorite Christmas ballet/story. :heart: But I'm surprised that no one uses another Christmas stories. O.O

I'm sure you can recognize the story I picked out for Ahiru and Fakir by looking at those gifts: a pocket watch chain and expensive comb. O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi" is one of my most favorite stories I love to read during Christmas. :heart: It's about a couple who had very tight money problems sacrificed their treasured possessions (a wife's long beautiful hair and her husband's family heirloom pocket watch) to buy each other the perfect gifts which became useless. Of course you think they're idiots to do something like that. But come on, THIS IS LOVE!!! :iconawwwplz: I always have tears in my eyes whenever I read this story! So sweet! :heart:

Here's link if you want to read the story=>[link]

I think this story is perfect for Ahiru and Fakir :heart: I wish I have time to do the comic but I didn't have much time...so yeah >3> Sad....
I also think Ahiru looks so cute with short hair! X3 :heart: lol

I hope you all like it! :heart:
Merry Christmas, everybody! Love you! XD

Ooh I LOVVEE this!! The art is so pretty and I immediately recognized the story you referenced! Both of the characters look so sweet and adorable! I LOVE seeing Ahiru and Fakir smiling with each other and enjoying each other's company! I can really feel the warmth between them as if they're laughing at their foolishness, but so thankful to be with each other. ;o; SWEETIES!!!!!

You have such great taste in everything~! I love that story. I can easily see Fakir and Ahiru doing this for one another. That is such a beautiful swan comb. Fakir picked a nice one. I think it is even more interesting how well Fakir and anything to do with a watch works since Drosselmeyer dealt with clocks and gears!

I didn't recognize the name of it, but I definitely remember the story from the description you gave of it. I believe I read it while I was in high school.
