MisAdventures in DibbunSitting by Kelaiah MisAdventures in DibbunSitting by Kelaiah

This is a "title cover" so to speak for an upcoming fanfic that :iconchelonianmobile: and I are co-writing. Some time ago, we started chatting, and somehow we got onto the subject of what it would be like if Dingeye and Thura, the endearingly stupid comic-relief stoat duo from "Salamandastron," got roped into looking after the Dibbuns.

 

From there we started getting quite detailed on what could happen, and finally Chelonianmobile suggested we co-author this story, and the opportunity was too great to pass up. We've already written quite a lot so far, though I'm not sure when we'll be finished with it. It's just going to be a one-shot, though, albeit a long one. Hopefully you'll all find it entertaining when we finally post it (I'll post a link when we do :)).

 

Along the way, Chelonianmobile stated we needed to think of a title, and I ended up coming up with "Misadventures in Dibbunsitting," which is a reference to the movie "Adventures in Babysitting," which is a movie I have never seen. Although I have seen the cover for it, which served as inspiration for this drawing. :D:D:D

 

I know I've already drawn D&T before, but I wasn't satisfied with how they came out. Thankfully Chelonianmobile came to the rescue again when she sent me a link of an actual stoat playing. After studying that for a bit, I was able to come up with more stoat-like designs for our duo. So thanks, Chel! :D:D:D

 

Also, you may notice individual details about D&T: in my last pic, Dingeye had a scar over his left eye, whereas in this one its over his right one. I did that on purpose so it would be visible, AND because I thought it could be a funny reference to some Mel Brooks' movies like "Young Frankenstein" and "Robin Hood - Men in Tights." :giggle: And yes, Thura is wearing a pink headscarf and frilly apron. Why, you might ask? Well, that's something you'll have to wait and find out when we finish the fic. :D:D:D:)

 

Disclaimer: Dingeye, Thura, the Dibbuns and Redwall Abbey belong to the dearly departed Brian Jacques.

 

Enjoy, and God bless! :D:D:D:)

:D

Okay.:)  I decided I'd right a Team Fortress 2 fanfic/crossover, where the team and some of the Marines from Halo are stranded on an alien planet, and must escape, all while fighting the aliens from the Covenant (The alien villains from Halo, that's what they call themselves).  I was also thinking about having Conker the squirrel in it too.:D
