How to Write Kuroshitsuji Fan Fiction: Eric & Alan
Format: PDF
Word Count: 29,514
Pages: 73

There is an art section. However, this is primarily a writing tutorial. Sorry, I hate doing art tutorials. However, the larger-than-average file size is primarily due to the images from that first section.

This is a PDF. You will need a PDF reader, such as Adobe Acrobat or FoxIt in order to view this tutorial! Both are available for free online. Google is your friend.

After two weeks of hard work, I present to you a compilation tutorial about Eric Slingby and Alan Humphries, two memorable shinigami from the second Kuroshitsuji musical.

Eric and Alan are characters that are frequently overlooked. I feel that they deserve a little more respect. After a number of requests for just such a tutorial, I decided to put one together. This particular guide covers:

- Personalities
- Dialogue
- Interactions
- Do's and Don'ts for the pairing, story writing and each character
- How to draw Eric and Alan

I hope you'll find it useful! Many, many thanks to the people who helped me out by checking facts or reading over various segments of this tutorial. Let me know what you think!

GOD DAMN IT. I've written four chapters of my shinigami related fanfiction assuming that Eric was just another officer.... FUCKBERRIES! On the other hand I've got things mostly downpat, at least accuracy wise.

Wow, this was extremely detailed and helpful! You definitely have the characters down perfectly! I learned a lot more about these characters, and you definitely inspired me to draw! :D Thank you so much for those references (Oh my gosh, you even captured Alan's tie thing~ )

This will definitely be my Eric and Alan guide to reference to from now on. Amazing job, I would :+fav: this a hundred times if I could!

"Don’t randomly change character species. Eric is a shinigami, not a demon. Alan isn’t human.
William isn’t a tooth fairy." XD Nice man. This actually very useful to me because I was planning on doing some fanart for the two...

I'm not writing a fic but was googling the characters (because they were so new) to get a bit of background when I came across this. Might I say that THIS is genius and art within its own right. I have never seen such a detailed character analysis that, as an English literature student, I feel I could do my final dissertation on them just from this.
However, I also have a question as you seen the only person who may actually know. I have googled this before to no avail - What is the the first name of the actor who plays Eric? I know he's called Taisuke Saeki but I'm aware of the culture of trading places with the first and second name so I'm uncertain. If you could help that would be amazing.

Yet again I applaud you and all your other tutorials. You inspire the future of literature. :D

Taisuke Saeki's first name is Taisuke. He also only played Eric in the first rendition of the musical, which is a shame. I haven't seen the new version, but the person who plays Eric is... a far cry from Mr. Saeki.

ahh brilliant! Thank you for your help :D. As I said, I have googled it and asked others but no one could give me a definite answer.

Yes, I have to agree the newest edition looks a little feminine for the character role of Eric. I guess we shall have to wait see if he can compete, I hear the new version will be released on DVD in the late Fall.

For me, it's always going to be Saeki and Matsumoto as Eric and Alan. They really were freaking awesome, and put so much emotion into it.
