Scene from TRLT by Akril15 Scene from TRLT by Akril15
A scene from my Lion King fan fiction, Simba's Pride: The Road Less Traveled ( [link] ). It's basically "Simba's Pride" with a stronger plot, more fleshed-out characters, and oh yeah -- Kiara has a twin brother.

This scene happens when Simba announces that the pride has no choice but go to war with Zira's pride, and Kiara refuses to believe his claim that Kovu is a cold-blooded killer. She tries to run away, and two lionesses block her path (just like in SP). Then she tries again, two more block her way, she swerves and tries to run around them, but one lioness leaps into her path, and Kiara knocks her down...and then realises that that lioness is her maternal grandmother, Sarafina.

The second lion in the center of the picture is Tanabi, Kiara's brother. I included a few minor lionesses from my story as well. The lioness standing in front of Sarafina is Kifaa, and the two in the lower left corner are Yakuti (who is normally a light rust color, but because of the lighting, looks pink...yewww) and Ramla.

I just read some of the fan fic, and I have to say, SIMBA IS A DICK!
No offense.

I little before Kiara knocked Sarafina down. I think... Dunno for sure... I don't really remember, I was tired, but I think that was where. Sorry if I offended you by saying what I said earlier.

You didn't offend me, I was just wondering what prompted you to yell "SIMBA IS A DICK!"

Anway, that scene you mentioned takes place right after Simba spies on the meeting where Zira is planning to launch an attack on the Pride Lands and Kovu is telling her that he is prepared to kill Simba. I'd think that if a character finds out that his beloved children have been secretly meeting with the offspring of his mortal enemy for years and has just discovered that one of those offspring is planning to kill him, he would have every reason to be angry with his children at that particular moment.

Eh, I never really like Simba in the second one, so it's kind of a nostalgia instinct. (If that makes sense)

I wasn't too crazy about Simba in the second movie either. That's one reason why I wrote that story, which tries to depict him as less of a constantly worrying, overprotective parent and makes his motives and actions a bit clearer.

Possibly one of the best fanfics I've ever read. Better than SP by far in my opinion.

I am imagining Kiara's words of Sarabi's death:

Crowd: *gasp*

Kiara: *steps back* I-I-I didn't mean it! It was an accident I didn't want for it to happen! *sobbing tears*

:XD:

Simba would probably had exile Kiara as well...:o

That's actually not Sarabi, it's Sarafina -- Sarabi dies of old age earlier in this story.

*puts up her hand* um actually if you'd like to make the story a LITTLE more cannon you should rename her 'twin' to Kopa - who was Simba and Nala's first born son, and older brother to Kiara.
Reply
:iconakril15:
Akril15 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2007
Kopa was never officially described as Kiara's brother -- he was just Simba's son in TLK:6NA, and he never officially appeared in the films either. He isn't necessarily Kiara's older brother either -- according to fan interpretation, he can be older, younger, or the same age as her, or possibly he exists only in a universe parallel to the one SP takes place in.

I'm not a terriffic stickler for canon, and since Simba never had a son within the context of the films*, people should be free to name that son whatever they want in their fan art/fiction (which certainly aren't canon themselves).

*Though some fans might argue that the cub at the end of TLK is his son, and his official name is "Fluffy."

It is just a fan novel, and there is a link to it in the first sentence of the description.

Maybe, but I think her voice actress appears in the SP credits, which might imply that she didn't.

umm, i was just wondering if this 'tanabi' was the lion cub at the end of the first lion king movie, if so, tanabi is not his real name.

Akril15 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2006
Thanks. Tanabi is an unofficial, fan-created name given to that cub. The official name is "Fluffy", but...

...King Fluffy? That's not exactly a dignified title...

Sarafina isn't dead. Kiara just accidentally ran into her.
