This is actually some fan art for a fanfiction I am reading, www.fanfiction.net/s/10759487/… an alternate universe where when Zira offers Kovu's life for trespassing in the pridelands, Kovu begs Simba to save him from the cruelty of his mother and Simba decides to take the cub under his wing.

I like the idea, what if Kovu was raised in the pridelands, what would have happened? :3

This is one of my favorite AUs, and I love it. I also suggest "A Pound of Flesh" if you enjoy Simba taking in Kovu AUs.

It would have been neat if Simba had accepted Zira offering him Kovu in this way.

I think this is one of the more interesting "what-if" scenarios in the Lion King, since there are quite a few stories you can write based on this idea.

I like to think that for the first times he would be pretty confused about the whole Scar's story and such, since he always knew that he was a sort of "saint" and he was usurped, and now he knows that he was cold-blooded murderer who killed his own brother for the throne. But soon enough he realizes he was just a tool in Zira's power and now he can enjoy his childhood innocently.

Have you ever thought of drawing cub Kovu pulling on King Simba's ear from that fanfiction story, "Where There's Life, There's Hope" by WTF123 at fanfiction.net?  It was the beginning of Ch. 6.

Anyways, great pic! Loved it and favored it! Keep up the great work!

The fanfic hasn't stopped, not by any means. I'm in the middle of writing a new chapter as we speak. Let's just say life can really get in the way of it sometimes... Embarrassed blush

This would have been a good thing (considering that Simba always wanted to follow in his father's footsteps and grow up to be a GOOD king). And I mean REALLY! If were talking Simba here, I know HE Would'nt want a healthy cub growing up under Zira's command! HE Should've known better that Zira would train Kovu to "take Scar's place as king" in the Pridelands and kill Simba!!!!! C'mon Simba!!!!! U KNOW BETTER THAN TO LET ZIRA RAISE A CUB TO GROW UP AND KILL UR FAMILY!!!!!

A lot of people I talk to say that when Zira said "However, if you want your pound of flesh...here..." Simba should have just picked Kovu up, put him down by Kiara and then ran Zira out of the Pridelands so that Kovu wouldn't "follow in Scar's paw prints" and become a different kind of individual.

Of course...then we wouldn't have the love story we know...


And to let everyone know, Kovu was already alive (and a cub) when Kiara has born (Nuka and Vitani reported to Zira). This was shown in one of the scenes that was cut out of the film.

that might have been the reason it was cut, I dunno, he does seem a bit older, but not by much

Honestly, this is how Simba is. The Simba from the first movie I believe would have done this. To prevent what was GOING to happen in the movie and to prove that the next generation isn't exactly like the first. I hate the judgmental, discriminative and just plain cruel Simba from the original movie. And you're drawing as a whole is beautiful. c:

In that case it's even worse because Kovu would have even less of a connection to Scar!

In retrospect, he's an even worse king than Scar! Scar wasn't responsible for the drought that obviously occurred (I don't care how recklessly the hyenas were poaching, it would NOT have caused the plant life to die or the water to dry up.) What Simba did was the equivalent of a freaking concentration camp!
