Norah Membrane by MoonlightWolf17 Norah Membrane by MoonlightWolf17
Hi!

Taking a break from the comic, I wanted to draw a pic of a head-canon I created and added it to the comic. Note: Yes, I'm very aware that Dib and Gaz (or maybe just Dib) are clones created by Prof. Membrane. But, I believe that Dib did have a mom so he could have some kind of backstory and explain his craziness and obsession towards the paranormal.

Name: Norah 
Age: 33
Gender: Female
Species: Human
Nationality: American
A kind, loving woman, with a side of craziness and curiosity. Married to Professor Membrane and mother of Dib and Gaz, Norah was an energetic and happy woman who was also an astrophysicist (a scientists that studies space.) 
On a car trip to the lab late at night to do some extra research on existent life outside The Milky Way, she got in a car accident and passed away. Dib was only 5 when this happened. 

Ye, just something I wrote very late at night. 

Dib and Gaz belong to Jhonen Vasquez
Norah belongs to me
Art done by me!

Nicely done :love:  And that name somehow fits her perfectly :heart:  I wonder if they'll ever reveal Dib and Gaz's true origins in the comics (since this what the creators said would have happened in the show had it continued).  I've taken a crack at trying to come up with a mom for Dib and Gaz before as well (I think many Dib fans have :)), but never really did anything with her.

Thanks! Love Yeah, I made this character mostly because of Error Code 16 but I did actually want to draw a mother for these two.

I came up with a head-canon that I'm still working on, but in it Dib's mom isn't his biological mother.  The Professor creates a clone which is still growing in a tube right before he and his wife--Amelia--get married.  While working on her paranormal research in Membrane's lab over the next 8 months, Amelia comes to think of the clone as her and the Professor's son.  She reads to him and talks all about her research on aliens, ghosts, and monsters.  Sometimes she'll sleep in the lab just so the baby won't be alone, and never leaves the room without telling him how much she loves him.  

One day while Amelia is experimenting with wormholes, trying to contact alien life, a monster emerges from it and destroys the laboratory.  It's about to destroy the tube where the baby has almost finished developing, but Amelia sacrifices herself to save him.  The Professor rushes in and sucks the monster back into space, but by now the lab in on fire and his wife is dying.  The last thing she tells him is to take care of their son.  The Professor takes a moment to pluck out one of her hairs, then he rescues the baby and gets outside just before the lab explodes.  

Bringing his wife back as a clone crosses Membrane's mind, but she'd told him she was against it while she was alive.  She did, however, tell him she always wanted a daughter as well as a son, so he combines her DNA with his own, and 9 months later Gaz is born, so-to-speak.

Dib never truly knew his "mother" but part of him remembers all those nights in the lab and how much she loved him.  A part of him also remembers everything she told him about her paranormal research, and this is what sparks his interest at an early age.  But Membrane, knowing that his wife's tampering in the paranormal is what got her killed, tries to dissuade Dib by acting as if the paranormal is silly or just doesn't exist.  Unfortunately to Dib this just feels like his dad doesn't believe him about anything, and maybe doesn't really care about him.  Membrane isn't a bad father, he just doesn't go about dealing with his son in the best way.  It's also why he seems to dote on Gaz more, since she's the only part of his wife he has left.  

Well, that's my idea, anyways ^^;  Don't know how good it is, but hope you enjoyed hearing it :)

I loved hearing your head-canon! It was immensely touching. Jake crying plz 

I adore your idea of Amelia caring so much for Dib like her own biological son even though he's actually a clone. And you also created a head-canon that Membrane doesn't want Dib to follow in the same footsteps of his mom since that's what got her killed instead of Membrane just being a terrible father. I absolutely enjoyed your story. :D

D'aww thank you!Cute Emoticon Blushing  I only started thinking about it again after you posted your picture ^^  I should dig up some of those old Mrs. Membrane designs, or try some new ones one of these days.  Odds are I'll never have any time to turn this into a full-fledged fanfic, but I'm glad you at least liked hearing it :heart:
