Where has Nick gone? by Kid-Apocalypse Where has Nick gone? by Kid-Apocalypse
It's been a really long time since I drew anything, so I took yet another break from novelling to doodle a bit. Of course, books still popped into my head, and this came up.

Maybe I'll colour it later, but my shoulder is remembering why it's been so long since I started drawing. I don't really know anyone else who's read any of the Oz books, but suffice to say, these kids lost their AU tinman. And their AU scarecrow Bo is stricken, of course.

Luckily for me, my copy of The Two Towers started crapping out right when I finished, so I didn't get really distracted--except when Bo's and Sofia's feet refused to comply. Even so, as I type this, I'm trying to get it synced back up to the Riff Trax. :doh:

I thought about it, and technically, according to the series, Nick has kids.

Is it according to the original forty or some of the myriad apocrypha?

well, he might have kids: if Nimmie Amee and Chopfty had kids then there's a 50% chance that he's the biological father

I vaguely that Forever in Oz had something about their progeny, but that's apocrypha. As far as I know, Nick hasn't got any canonical children, even via Chopfyt.

This was supposed to be an AU group in any case, not requiring a terribly cogent link to the original. If I ever gave it another go, I think I'd choose different characters, like the Hungry Tiger, a much-changed Ozma, and maybe Prince Inga or the Shaggy Man's brother.

I guess you have a point there, I guess we'll never know.

Still, it'd be an interesting question to ask a geneticist. Or a genealogist. :lol:

Well, one night I was writing a random story without really thinking about it and in the story it turned out that Nick had a daughter and Nimmie handed her over to him to raise her. He named her Willa. Don't ask how I came up with it because I have no clue how I did.

That reminds me of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, when Arthur Dent had a daughter he didn't know about pushed on him.

Asking where Oz names come from is like asking why honey is edible. :lol:

:thanks: I was messing around and drew something like characters from the Wizard of Oz. Roughly. XD The important thing was the poses, and I think I learned a lot about feet and remembering to erase my lines. Hair too.
