My Dark Princess by Boxjelly1 My Dark Princess by Boxjelly1
:faint: I literally can't believe I'm cranking out this many colored drawings. oof! It's demanding, and yet, I've never been more pleased with the results :clap:

Ok, so as part of my current Epic obsession, this fanfiction/AU idea of a Dark Marigold (the flower girl) is totally my favorite. My ideas behind it are sky-rocketing! and so of course I have to share them with you :happybounce:
Here's my alternative ending/ AU sequel:

At the Pod ceremony, Mandrake managed to fend the guards away from the altar, and in a last minute act of desperation, leaped onto the pedestal and used his own body to shroud the blooming pod in darkness. After Tara's essence emerged, she chose Marigold to take on the gift and the curse of the power she had to bestow. The young leafchild was transformed, given the same power to control the forest, but as Mandrake would say, "what is born in the darkness, belongs to the darkness."
When her mother tried to stop her from leaving with him, contact with her daughter's touch caused rot to spread upon her. She wasn't harmed, but the effect frightened Marigold, and not wanting to hurt her mother, or any of the other leafmen, she agreed to go with Mandrake.
"Please don't follow me. I'll... I'll be fine." She said to them, and just like the queen before her, Marigold looked out for her people, and left in the embrace of the Boggan King, sacrificing herself to his care so as to keep from contaminating those she cared for most.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This is a fanfiction I plan to write, though I don't expect anything soon. I'm afraid I have too much writing on my plate as it is, and it will be quite a while before I actually can get to it. But the story will tell of Marigold's time with Mandrake, how he gains her trust and how she accepts him as her father. The more he teaches her to control the power of rot, the more she forgets about her past life. Most of this fiction will focus on her adult self, as she grows into a powerful Boggan general and brings about a period of decay upon the forest. The rest of the Epic cast will be present, and will eventually cross paths with this dark princess again. When they realize that part of her memory is still intact, the group must make one last desperate attempt at saving the forest by restoring Marigold's past and helping her find the true spirit of the forest within her.

woo! so yeah, hopefully lots of fun stuff ahead.

I hope you like the concept and the art! :wave:
enjoy!

I'm really glad you like the idea for the story. You may have already seen but I've actually made 4 comic pages that extend this scene and shows what happened after as well :D

Very cool.  I know what it's like to lose one's self into a fictional universe.  While I enjoyed EPIC very much, my brain didn't explore the universe this much.

Wait a minute. Does that mean that M.K doesn't get back to the real world?
Reply
:iconboxjelly1:
Boxjelly1 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2013  Student Digital Artist
ooh, good question.
um, yes. that means that she is forced to stay in moonhaven, and due to the circumstances, aids the leafmen and Ronin in another adventure of trying to decide whether they should attempt to save the new dark princess, or fight her and the boggan forces. it also gives her more time to get closer to Nod and for them to develop their relationship :nod:

lol, I have not seen that movie in YEARS! it's been so long, so I don't remember much about the characters other then the general knowledge of their roles and the story. but I believe you.
If I remember right though, Snow White was only supposed to be 13. what's up with the early young-ass heroines?

because they're hotter? :lol:  she may be the youngest princess besides Eilonwy (from the black cauldron) who actually looks between 12-15..  or Vanellope from Wreck-it-ralph.. I don' t know her age .. but I think she's younger than Snow white..

I haven't read that one. but thank you! I'm surprised by the lack of fanfics out for this movie. I've read what I can find, but so far nothing too amazing. I'll be excited to get mine out there once I can begin working on it.
I'm really happy that you're interested, by the way. thanks for that! :hug:
