Rigoletto (1851) is an opera by Giuseppe Verdi (based on the play Le roi s’amuse (1832) by Victor Hugo) about the Duke of Mantua, a Handsome Lech if ever there was one, and his hunchbacked jester Rigoletto, a Deadpan Snarker whose quips hit a little too close to home. The opera opens with the Duke plotting the seduction of a young beauty he met in church while gossips whisper that Rigoletto has found a mistress. Count Monterone, whose daughter was seduced by the Duke, comes to complain of her ruined virtue, and the Duke, on Rigoletto’s blithe advice, shuts him up by having him executed. Monterone pronounces a curse on them both, and the other courtiers resolve to revenge themselves on Rigoletto for his callous jokes. On his way home from work, Rigoletto also runs into a Professional Killer, Sparafucile, who offers his services in removing anyone Rigoletto might find inconvenient. Now, finally, enter The Ingenue, The Chick and The Heart: Gilda, the woman who is simultaneously: the woman believed to be Rigoletto’s mistress; the beautiful girl the Duke met at church; and, unbeknownst to everyone, Rigoletto’s daughter.
Replica Handbags The Hill of Swords, a The Familiar of Zero fanfic by Gabriel Blessing which does this in spades for Louise. It has been observed by some that the vast majority of reasons for Louise’s Scrappy hood can be traced back to a combination of her low self esteem and having an idiot of a love interest who can’t stop pushing her Berserk Buttons and damaging her self image further still. Gabe’s response was to replace Saito with someone who would dodge said Berserk Buttons and help Louise get her magic working, namely Shirou Emiya. The result sees Louise getting massive amounts of Character Development and turning into an admirable young lady with Shirou’s help. The story worked so well that it sparked the creation of an onslaught of fanfics following similar variations on the “Replace Saito with (Insert Competent Character Here)” premise. Replica Handbags
