Cant sleep by SkekLa Cant sleep by SkekLa
Hey there!
I'm here with a small drawing, one after a suggestion from our fellow Deviant :iconiceoffire: time ago.
He had imagined General SkekUng , in his earliest days, still not robed or ornated, trying to sleep in a forst and having it as impossible ordeal.
The idea is based on a Disney classical short film named "Bongo", where a small circus bear flees his prison and tries to live i the forest...with the same consequences we see here to poor SkekUng!
Crickets, nightly animals, branches, EVERYTHING creaks, gunts, hollers and keeps him from sleeping!

This, i my own mind, could have taken place the first time SkekUng was assigned (being one of the strongest skeksis) as sentry to the Castle, while the land was still green even around it's terrain.
As you see, the poor thing will not have it easy trying to disobey his duty and doze off...
Who are the other three skeksis laughing at the background? Possibly SkekOk, SkekMal and SkekEer... ^^

THIS is pure, nonsensical fun...and doesn' stick  to canon at ALL..But I hope you'll ejoy it!

I hope Ung was not commonly chosen for such difficult task ;)

He seemed to be, while young. POOR THING...
Hopefully now he's out for "bigger" things!

Poor thing, right? ^^
Hopefully next night the sentry will be someone else...and if it is him, he might be asigned closer to the castle walls!...

He has somehow cute feet! XD
But it's SkekUng, even if young and in distress: i'd stay away! a kick from him could be truly vicious! :giggle:
His temper is not the mildest around...

And it's very similar to this fanfic idea I had in which the Skeksis go camping and they're terrified of the 'sounds of nature'. :laughing:

It was :iconfireofice: idea! ^^
OH don't say!...I'd love to read that fanfic!! They're so used to the castle life and so unused to the sounds of nature, that they'd be utterly terrified!!!
Poor dears...

I'll see if I can complete it. It's part of a 4 part series, with each adventure taking place in each of the 4 seasons. This one was for autumn. :aww:

:giggle: Yeah, SkekEkt screams when he hears an owl...:rofl:

AWWW....Four season stories for early skeksis...I NEED TO READ THAT!!! :woohoo:

Skekekt would screech his lungs out if he had to suffer a night "out"...POOR DEAR!! Can't blame him, he is used to interiors, and very delicate, that'd be no life for him! ^^

Indeed!
He can use some better memories at his later times alone in the forest! If not, all this fellow wil know is fear and hatred!...nd whatever many say about skeksis, we'll want to give him at least some funny moments to remember in his olden days' solitude...don't we? ^^
