Fox & Willow is a webcomic about the wandering princess, Willow, her sidekick fox spirit, Gideon, and the strange situations they find themselves dealing with. All is not as it seems and each chapter so far has had its own plot with the over arching theme of learning more about our mysterious protagonists. Written by Allison Pang and illustrated by Irma "Aimo" Ahmed. Updated Mondays and Thursdays.
This series provides examples of:
- Adaptational Villainy: The prince from The Little Mermaid is turned into an arrogant, abusive sociopath who cut the Mermaid's tongue out of her mouth.
- Well, technically he wasn't the one who cut out The Little Mermaid's tongue. That was done by the sea witch as part of the deal to exchange Nerissa's voice for becoming human. He's certainly deserving of the arrogant, abusive, sociopath title though and later even cuts out Princess Nuala's eye.
- Animal Motifs: The swan princess in the first chapter.
- Art Evolution: Subtle, but the art gradually changes the way anatomy and colours are used. Gideon is most noticeably affected.
- Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Gideon and Willow, perhaps. When Willow is comforting the spare princess in chapter two, she and Gideon seem to look on their intimacy fondly. Gideon is in fox form, but his expressions are soft and tender.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Between Gideon and Willow. Their interaction in chapter two displays both sides, fighting like an old couple and then sharing the Meaningful Look below.
- Meaningful Look: Gideon and Willow share a very subtext laden one in the second chapter.
- Not Distracted by the Sexy: Willow's reaction to Gideon's presentation of his naked human form: "Seen it."
- Odd Couple: Willow and Gideon. It is implied (NSFW) that they have been romantically and/or sexually involved but he's annoying fox spirit and she's a runaway princess.
- Rebellious Princess: Willow is a runaway princess according to Gideon, though the details of her situation are a mystery.
- Shameless Fanservice Fox: Gideon when in human form, as he only wears a collar and an earring. Willow is not impressed.
- Spare to the Throne: The murdered princess in the first chapter was promised to a foreign prince. Her older sister takes her place when the prince finally arrives and learns of his betrothed's fate.
