Remember that Scar never told Zira the truth about Mufasa of course so she can't understand what's going on.  
I love Simba. He's a bit of a n00b king but trying his best.
And Zira, you're not going to like that at all.

I can imagine how heartbreaking it is for her.... I went through an incredibly close person's death and it's unbearably painful.
I would just lie and wouldn't eat for a month afterwards... Became almost anorexic, lol...

But yeah, on a lighter note...

Thank you for still spending the time to post this comic for us and not giving up on it!

I dunno about others, but I appreciate it immensely, because I know how tedious and time-consuming can page creation be...

I wanted to do a comic of my own, but, realistically, I wouldn't be able to keep it up for long...
My only 'pages' were stuff like short gags and contest entries (like this one), and even one page takes forever to make. I'd miss deadlines a few times because of it, and get really discouraged...
So I probably wouldn't be able to keep a comic running and update regularly...

But I guess we'll see...
Maybe I'll come up with a quick yet relatively pretty way to do it.

Thank you so much. Yes it's really hard sometimes to find the time or the will to draw. But I must finish this comic. It's an important part of my imaginary world.

You're extremely welcome! Don't ever force yourself into drawing if you don't feel like it! Don't feel pressured.
If you have things to do or just want to rest, then do just that! You're a person, first and foremost, and have a personal life behind the screen. c:

I hate misunderstandings :< If Zira knew that Scar murdered the true king... But, to be honest, your story is the most realistic version of events in TLK fanfiction history. And your Scar is the most scarish Scar of all fan-versions-of-Scar.

Oh Zira. :( (Sad) 

Simba you butt. CURSE YOU! That is no way to treat the grief of one who's lost a loved one. She couldn't of known of what Scar did to get his power in the first place... 

Uh oh, I foresee potential character deaths everywhere, Sarabi maybe, perhaps Shenzi, and the finishing touches to Zira's design, her ear notch?  I think I've fainted.

Funny how everybody's saying Simba is a jerk. The guy's been thinking he caused his father's death for years, comes back and learn that his uncle did it and ruined the pridelands, learns he's got a crazy cruel mate (that's probably how the pridelanders see Zira). He's got every right to believe she knew about Mufasa 's death and probably the last thing he wants is to have her around. He probably doesn't know she has kids in the first place and he probably wouldn't like to see them either. I can understand he wants no more to do with Scar at the moment.

Probably the Outsider sympathizer in me, I know he lost his father and was made to think it was his fault and all, but Zira had a tough life to say the least, with an abusive father that raised her into becoming a killer and killed her mother, her previous lover was killed, then she lost her mate, came back to see her home in flames and her dream paradise life hacked apart that actually gave her light from the darkness of her past,, so you can at least sympathize with the fact that from her angle, she sees Simba as a random rogue brute who took the throne for himself and couldn't possibly of been the legitimate heir of Mufasa, yes Simba survived his exile but it was pretty unbelievable, a legend, and it's not surprising the Outsiders would see him and anyone who stands with him as usurpers and liars, Scar was the only one they could trust at that point and gave them food, water and sanctuary, so I still can sympathize with them. It's all about perspective, and there is 2 sides to a story, I sympathize with poor Simba but I also do with Zira and her pride sisters. 

I'll be a tad pissed if Simba decides to banish the Outsiders just for being loyal to Scar, that'd be like if Scar banished Sarabi and Sarafina for being loyal to Mufasa, I don't know, that story element just really rubs me the wrong way, I'm hoping it'll be for something actually punishable like treason, possibly killing Sarabi or if you decide to go that route, Simba's son, or even killing Shenzi. Either way, I cannot wait to see it unfold and what ends up being the straw that broke the camels back for Zira and Simba. I've followed the comic ever since you uploaded the very first chapter, and I can't believe how far you've come! Bravo, Audrey. Party

Well I'll probably disappoint you on this, cause I'm sticking to the SP storyline however absurd I find it.
But yeah Simba will need all the events in SP to understand the outlanders can be trusted.

I sympathise with Zira's fate a lot but here she just appears like a crazy bloodthirsty fury to Simba at least. And Sarabi and co don't know about her childhood or the story of her meeting Scar and probably see her as an arrogant lioness who made her way to the throne. It's all a question of point of view.
Zira and her girls didn't try to be friendly to the pridelanders either.

So yeah, there's definitely more than one side.

Yeah stopping to wonder "does she even know Scar killed my father?" and whatnot are probably not things are going to pass through his mind in the heat of the moment. (I mean, holy cow, if we want to believe the timeline of the third act of TLK, him meeting Rafiki, seeing his father's ghost, arriving at Pride Rock and seeing it destroyed, being forced by his uncle to say that he killed his own father in front of everyone, including his mom and girlfriend, only to find out that Scar did it all along, a big fight with fire, then having to finally accept the responsibility of being king of a BROKEN LAND...when he's SO LITTLE time to actually LEARN to be king... this all happens in what, just over two days? His brain's gotta still be reeling at this point.)

Very true, but would you expect the Outsiders to believe that the long lost heir of Mufasa who was thought to of been dead all these years, had returned and was raised by a meerkat and warthog, then sent by the former deceased King's spirit to face his past? I can understand their reaction 'Your not a King, you just killed the true King and took his throne like the brute you are!" It's a big misunderstanding on both sides, really. There are no winners here, Simba lost Mufasa, and Zira lost Scar.

:iconjulianwilbury:
julianwilbury Featured By Owner Edited Jan 23, 2017  Student General Artist
Oh, no, I agree! I was responding to those who were saying Simba was a jerk basically saying "Oh you were allied with Scar? Welp banishment for you!" without considering that there maybe context around Zira's situation that he doesn't understand. (She may not know how Scar took over and not know that he killed to get the throne himself, or Simba had not considered the idea that she was manipulated (and later abused) by Scar just as he was, or at the very least, consider the fact that she has two cubs and another on the way; I have to imagine that Simba would at least consider finding a way to let the cubs have a better life since they're innocent, especially considering Sarabi's attachment to Nuka.)

I mean, yeah, Simba did seem pretty jerkish when I first read the comic, but considering his own circumstances, I can understand that he's not stopping to think of the more delicate, touchy points to the pride's social situation. 

Honestly, I would even question if Zira would care that Scar killed to get his spot on the throne, at this point she is just that dedicated to him and would probably be blind to her own hypocrisy. I don't think an understanding could've been reached either way. That would have to entail both parties sharing each other's experiences and appreciating the fact that the gravity of the situation is weighing heavily on both of them, and I'm pretty sure one party doesn't want to hear it. (Y'know, especially if Simba's Pride is anything to go by. ;) )

EDIT: Apologies if I tread over any material you discussed with other commenters. I wrote this before I visited the Deviation page.
Also, Nuka is my fave, so I totes have an Outlander loving streak as well. ;)

Well well well Simba, while I do understand that you do not trust Zira at all, you are being a rude jerk: "Leave my lands, I don't want to see the likes of you here, friends with a murderer". You have just met her and you are already judgying her for Scar's actions, not hers. Didn't you think that she could be manipulated by him just like YOU were manipulated into believing you were your father's murderer? Didn't you think that maybe she doesn't know that Scar killed Mufasa? That maybe she has NOTHING to do with whatever Scar did to Simba's family?

Honestly, I really hate Zira, but in here it's hard for me to position myself with Simba, he is being a real arrogant jerk, not even 5 minutes as King and he already judges everyone around without getting all the information.

I think like Audrey and Julianwilbury said in another comment.  Stopping to think if he manipulated anyone else is the last thing going through his mind. He is just now learning that his years of guilt was for nothing, and that he left his mother, best friends, and family behind because of once selfish act. Hell.. he probably doesn't know that Tojo, Chumvi and the others are...probably dead.

He's become a king with no actual training, and his first act is to see that the desolated lands he's inherited don't get worse. He just had to fight for his life. He was forced to admit to a crime he never commited. And this is all in...a very very very short time span. Rationality has probably yet to come back to him.

I understand that it's a lot to take in, and that he wasn't trained, but still, I don't know, I don't see it fair, he is paying all of it with the wrong person, unless Zira does something that does make her deserve to get vanished, like attacking Simba in blind rage.

Knowing her character, she might.

At the same, for all he knows, she knew about it and his true self, but doesn't care. She is still loyal to him, despite the destroyed lands, hyenas, abused lionesses, even her rejected son...she's still loyal. That's a bit dangerous. So unfair, ye maybe. But also understandable.

Oh believe me, I totally agree with you on that one: trust me, I am only pissed at Simba because of how he is handeling things, but that doesn't mean I don't know Zira does deserve to get kicked out, specially after she allowed and supported the abuse towards her own son. And yes, knowing Zira? She would still support and adore Scar no matter if she knew the truth or not. And like you said, it's veeery dangerous.
