Check out the "Brothers" contest! [OPEN] Contest: Bone Shuffle - MORE PRIZES!

At least one "bone shuffle" game later, Tai and Ahadi have a little talk about a big plan (and big hopes). Meanwhile... Noka... you're too cute to be so morbid! Stop it, already! :O (Honestly, he has his reasons, but geez.) Hopefully Taka can help...?

I am dedicating this comic "Brothers" to all of the fans who inspired and encouraged me while I was working on "Betrothed." Without you, this sequel wouldn't exist. Thank you. And if you're just tuning in, welcome aboard!

I... I have no idea of what to say. Yes, we shouldn't wish death upon anyone, we have no right to judge others to this extent, but... On another hand, we're still just humans (well, lions in this case) and honestly, after all the pain and destruction those hyenas caused, perhaps there is no other way to solve the problem and prevent more misery except by killing them. It's terrible? Yes. Will it prevent more misery? Also, yes!

I feel sorry for Noka, he is not right, but he isn't quite wrong either, I guess...

Huh... Taka, I think I'm getting a glimpse of your future self and perhaps this isn't quite a good sign.

And you bring up some excellent points all around. That was one thing that I was hoping would happen with this page is bringing up those hard questions as well as showing a little of what Mufasa believes personally, contrasting Noka (and possibly Taka). I also love bringing human problems into my TLK stories, which I think is very true to the movie and I like having a place where I can bring up these ideas and have discussions or prompt discussions about them.

I should say not... he's striking a mighty familiar pose there...

You managed it, believe me. I love comics that present situations that force us to think and bring up serious questions such as this. There are things that seem simple in theory, but when they appear as real life situations, we are forced to see things are never simple or black and white. Mufasa wants to hold on to the principles he was taught and while this is noble, Noka has seen the violence and as such, he has perhaps a better understanding than Mufasa (or at least a more personal one) despite the incident with the hyenas Mufasa had. At times, you need to make harsh decisions, you have to do things you wouldn't normally because the situation calls for drastic measures. As a king, Mufasa has huge chances of having to face such choices because his people depend on him, there might a time when he will have to do something he wouldn't normally for the sake of the land. It reminds me of when Uru betrothed him to Sarabi... Of course, it was not as serious or with the same stakes, but she also had to agree with something she never would have normally because she HAD to do so. Life is like that.

I know, discussing those things and different points of views can be really fun! Complicated, yes, but fun.

A far too familiar pose, if you ask me....

Poor Noka. I'd probably feel the same way if someone killed my mom and destroyed my home. :(

That there be Noka. Ali is his battle-scarred papa. :aww: But yes, that is pretty dark. ^^; (I guess when you've seen your family and lands torn apart by hyenas, you don't talk too well of them.)

:iconohhcatplz: Is he up to something...?
