Yes! Shuna's and Bee/Ikopek's little boy deserve a thread as well!
I don't really have much to say about him, other than I hope I'm right about the Raised in Both Worlds part, other than simply having Kimo around. Seriously, a 'Visiting grandma and grandpa' scene would just be adorable! (Especially if "Cousin Korafay" is there too!)
Hopefully that happens!
I mean it'd be cute( hopefully he inherits Shuna's ability tO SEND!( then he really can be raised in both worlds!)
A bushel and a Shunopeck!
I felt he was due for a character thread, except that he didn't have a name. If the Shupek fits, wear it!
I wonder if Shuna ever calls her husband "Honey."
I dunno who first coined the name 'Shupek'. Maybe I should've called him 'Ikopek Jr', as he's named in the Who's Who thread... prolly gonna change the title when we get his name.
And, gee Trollbabe, where'd'ya ge' em from?
Shupek is easy to say. We could call it a "fan name", like Winnie, Picky, Elfpop, or "Sky" for Skywise.
No telling whether he will be another Little Patch type ally to the Elves. Children grow to choose their own path. He could be another Shaman or Djun, for all we know.
I honestly don't think that's gonna happen. After all he'll be growing up with elf-grandparents and with an elf around.
This little one should be visible as well
I just felt that part of the reasons most humans hate/fear the elves is because they don't understand them, think they're evil and such.
Please pardon my mistake for starting a Shukopek thread. I somehow missed this one.
Wondering why he has no siblings, though.
That is curious, Trollbabe! Maybe Leetah and Shen Shen taught Shuna some herbology?
Don't worry, Trollbabe. I really need to repair and update the Keeping in Character Listing.
Some herbology would have come handy for Shuna. Her goals are not compatible with another baby every second year in average.
I thought little Shu(ko)pek would have been a rather lonesome child. No close friends and playmates only when his parents decided to stay some weeks or months with a friendly tribe.
But then I realized that he most possibly had a great playmate and friend - an elf and wolf all in one
BOTH was pretty close indeed, lunakat. I wish we would find a way to have Redhead's choice AND the final name in the title. With "Shupek" the search funktion does not work ... and he cannot be found easily.
Hey, Redhead ... think it would make sense to rename the thread. *sigh* I like the "made up" name and how close it came to the true one but it will become puzzling to readers. How about a gradual change:
"Shupek" - Raised in Both Worlds becomes Shu(ko)pek - Raised in Both Worlds
I know, it's still not the correct name for the search fuction but it would keep a bit of Scroll history.
Anyone objects? Better - pardon, other ideas? What do YOU think about it, Redhead?
How about "Shupek"..? Er, "Shukopek"-- Raised in Both Worlds! ?
This is just a lesson for us to be more patient in creating threads.
One thing I really liked was how Shukopek's outfit echoed that of his father ^_^ It wasn't a carbon copy of Bee's but had the same flair, it reminded me of a bumblebee. And Shukopek is cute when he says that he doesn't want to leave a wife and children behind. I really hope to read more about this guy
Couldn't help to make a direkt comparism ...
- He looks like Little Patch pretty much!
... more or less the first thought that struck me when I saw adult Shukopek.
Is it a real resemblance here ... or only the sad look in their eyes that fools me?
You're right - I see a definite resemblance between their facial structure! Hmm... couldn't one of Little Patch's descendants have founded the Hill Hopper Clan? Remember how he used to tell his (great?)grandchildren stories of wolves and Preservers... it'd be funny if on the long run it turned out that the Hill Hopper Clan's fascination with bugs originated from Preservers legends and lore! :D
Funny thought! Would be a nice twist.
Wouldn't it make more sense if it was Shuna who was a descendant of Little Patch? Since they're both from The New Land...
I'll change the title of the thread!
Except... I dunno how to!
Please, someone! How do I change the title of the thread?
Found it... but nothing seems to happen when I click the link...
Stab it with a fork. It won't help but you'll feel better
Oooops.. I forgot to tell you to change the text of the title and to Update.
But I'm sure you figured it out by yourself..
Where is the imagine of Shokopek getting his tribe name & and his adult version from?
It's from the brand new issue "The Final Quest Special", published October 2013.
Hmm... actually something I've been thinking a bit about:
He looks to be around 10 (+/- a few years) when he gets his name. Was he just "Hey, boy" until then?
Also, how much of the show us how our grandchild grows did Shuna and Ikopek keep? Shukopek seems fairly familiar with who Savah is, but I guess that could've been merely stuff he'd been told...
Hmm... you realize that there is another option to how Shuna and Ikopek managed to only have one child in a 20+ year long marriage...
HMMM, I don't think they look alike at all. Shukopek has a narrower jawline, Little Patch a thinner nose. One has blue eyes, one has brown. Little Patch's skin is paler. I DO see the amazing consistency in Wendy's art. These two images were drawn 20 years apart, yet they are unmistakably Wendy.
Thornbrake said: These two images were drawn 20 years apart, yet they are unmistakably Wendy.THIS is unmistakably true! :)
Just a thought:
I really really hope that when he finds a mate she'll be someone who won't fear and hate the elves. Because if would just be heartbreaking if he had to leave most of his family behind.
I don't think Wendy and Richard would be THAT cruel. Oh wait...yes they totally could be! ;-)
I don't think Shukopek could fall for someone strongly anti-elf. Maybe a mate who's somewhat ambivalent about them and must ultimately decide, like Snakeskin, whether s/he wants "to trust"... or hide behind fear. But it'd be his partner, in my opinion, who'd have to "come around" - his reverence and familiarity with the elves seems to strong to imagine him turning his back to them, even for love.
A pity that...
... hold hold hold, I might have just got an idea for an EQ fanfiction - and it's not even WaveDancers themed! O_O *runs off to note down plot before I forget all about it*
*laugh* Go for it, @ChristinaRaibert fanfiction strikes at the oddest times!
