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:)
