Okay, so some of you might already know this (I don't know how clearly I spoke of this in the blog administration section ...) but: I'm writing a Madoka Magica x No.6 crossover fanfiction. Which means: No.6 characters in the world of Madoka Magica (so, if you don't know that anime, watch it! It's great and depressing ^^")

I more or less already gave each character a 'character role' from the Madoka universe and everything's set up. But I'm having problems with designing the assigned role for Elyurias to be honest.

So, Elyurias is, as we all know, this big wasp:


Yes, that's very clear. So, her assigned role is that of Kyubey or the Incubator:

Here's a link if you want to read a bit about Kyubey but it contains spoilers!

The role of this character is basically giving the Magical Girls in the original anime their powers by making a contract with them (not gonna tell you too much in case you haven't seen the anime). That's why it's basically the perfect role for Elyurias but you see ... if some big ass wasp came up to me and asked me to make a contract with them - I would cry bloody murder and run away as fast as I can.
I first thought about turning Elyurias into a bumblebee (since ironically, I'm a bit wary of wasps but am totally in love with bumblebees, okay?) but I'm not sure if that's any good. I'd like to keep the rather neutral face that can easily be interpreted as creepy and I think the face of an insect is kinda similar to that. But I'm entirely not sure if it would be a good idea to really make Elyurias an insect in this fanfiction and not rather a more ... cuddly thing.
(Of course you could always give her a sort of loan body that hides her true form which is an idea I'm rather fond of to solve this problem but I'm just kinda ... not good designing anything and usually need someone telling me if that's even a good idea ...)

Well, it would already help if you'd just tell me what you think of the whole matter. Or if you have any suggestions - pictures of Elyurias as Kyubey that popped up in your mind or something. Anything, really. Everything's helpful and who knows what I'm going to be able to work with ^^ (It's too late here; is that even a sentence??)



@Ahiku: It was over a year ago or so ... I just now remembered and that we never actually solved that problem (until now) xD
And yeah, I wonder ... why did they keep Hamlet? Because he had a better name? Because he had more screentime in the anime? Who knows ...
