Last Dance Together by 1-Renaissance Last Dance Together by 1-Renaissance
Dancers from left to right:

Sita (ratling), Arajee, Binjo

In this scene, the rat family have their last dance together before they separate.

=========================================
Here's another scene of another novel I'm going to write. Arajee's story is pretty sad but at the very end of the novel, ends well.

PROLOGUE:

A group of clans escaped the cruelty and oppression of Steekta and established a settlement were they would live free of tyranny. In the struggle, one of the heroes was Arajee (female rat in middle) Afterward, she married Binjo and mothered a son and two daughters.

But Forjan, one of the leaders, changed over time and broke the promises he made to the clans and slowly enforced strict laws. He even had a wall built surrounding the city so that no rat can leave. Arajee was quick to notice these changes and spread word of it. Forjan then had Arajee closely monitored by the Kaon Police.

After her only son Rangari (7) was forcibly taken for training to serve the army, Arajee rebelled and even went as far as speaking publicly against Forjan. Seeing her as a threat to his dictatorship, Forjan had Arajee separated from Binjo and forced her to remain with her own blood clan as was the new law.

Knowing it was safer for her daughters Sita and Ti Keia, she had them stay with Binjo. He was known as a suspected traitor so for their safety, he didn't tell them he was their father.

Things got worse for Arajee as her clan was arrested for stirring up revolutionary ideas and movements. They were confined to the working camp and prison. For years, Arajee never knew what became of Binjo or her three children. All the clan could do was wait for a chance to escape the prison working camp by breaking through the wall itself.

The time came suddenly when an earthquake struck the region and crumbled a small portion of the wall by the working camp. The clan found this exit and hid it until they made a diversion by setting a blaze to the fortress Kaon.

They made their move and escaped the work camp and city altogether. By that time, Arajee was aging and her vision was already fading.


Notes:
Arajee escaped at 51 when Sita was 21 and Ti Keia died at the age of 20, shortly after giving birth to her son Silfang (adopted by Sita)


========================================
That's the prologue. The story focuses on Sita as she tries to lead her clan to sanctuary. Meanwhile tempers flare as the struggle for leadership challenges her safety and the safety of her daughter Te Ranji (5).


I tried to be brief with the prologue. So much for that. :D
========================================
I own this so please don't steal it or there will be hell to pay

Not in my stories, Darlin'. The citizens of this city are peaceful enough but the government is slowly becoming corrupt. They're the bad guys.

Ouch... I don't them but wish they stay good. :(

I've created my own Redwall fanfiction in my head. :D
It took place in a country on another continent far west over the ocean, they live in big futuristic cities, citizens have education, plenty of jobs, enough money, and good behaviors. This is not America, though government uses some democracy and by the counsel, but their executive and leader of nation is actually an almost-absolute king, either beneficial or evil, it depends what mood he's in.

GET AWAY FROM MY FIRE!!!!!!

Just speaking to the rat sitting next to it, I think I see a pail of water behind him. Anyways, just using the way you draw their footpaws as a reference. I'm kinda getting into the anthro style more now that I am reading redwall again. And yours is by far the one I like the most. You said you adopted it from lion king right? Well, too bad there aren't any mice in it because I hate cats. Everything else I have no problem drawing but the infernal footpaws, grrrrrr. I love that part of the body a lot, but its a pain drawing it. Which is why I just draw them in the sitting position. Well, not that it means anything to this drawing :XD:. If anyone puts out the fire it'll be me!

Nah, XD that would be kinda pointless, you'll just be hearing everything I said in the past. I was just stopping by and thought I would just contribute to the comment list.

Look what I made :icontfalugnutplz:

That looks like a nice town. Nobody else draws a campfire like you :D. You must've put alot of time into that. It would look nicer if those rats would stop dancing by it. That loner to the left of the fire looks very suspicious :paranoid:. He looks like he wants to put out my fire. I'll show him.

Nice city of good rats but under a dictator. Ah, that poor loner rat's just a bit cold so he's closer to the only campfire there. *gasp* But he could be a spy!! Or maybe the artist was too lazy to draw more around him. :D

:paranoid: NO, he must be a spy.....and must be dealt with :ninja: "silently".

Dictatorship you say. Well how dare that family of rats conduct a peaceful ceremony in the dictators kingdom. It must be some ritualistic cult. Heathens, Heretics! They must all be seized! 30 lashes for each of them, and the males shall be drawn and quartered! That should show as an example to the rest of the townsfolk, no heretic ceremonies shall be conducted in his kingdom :evillaugh:.................







Or so that would happy if the dictator was in fact that evil, and if I was an assassin. But I still feel uneasy about that rat near the fire :worry:

*see's the bucket of water behind him*

Heh, heh, silently...:ninjadart: But what if he's just cold?

Things were different and the dictator was one of the leaders who led the rebellion against a tyrant, only to become one himself.

Yet he knows the destruction the people can cause even though he controls the army and secret police. Therefore he's slowly enforcing strict laws and bans.

COLD, WHAT IS THIS COLD! THERE IS NO COLD IN THIS DICTATORSHIP, ONLY HEAT AS ALL IDOLATERS BURN IN THE FURNACE :evillaugh:

But I doubt your dictator is that brutal. My leader of the Holy Order of Mice in Crist Valley (The government in my book The Angel of Crist Valley) is much more brutal. Beheading those caught sinning in the name of God and causing more sin than non sinners himself. (The order is inspired by Frollo's from the Hunchback of Notredame.) The leader Claudius would've done half of everything I told you your dictatorship should do :XD:. Real messed up.

You know what quartering is?

Alright than, never mind. I meant medieval quartering too. With ropes and horses and the like. Real sick and brutal :dead:

Can I come up with any other word besides "awesome"? ...well, how about "epic"? ...except I've already used that word. Sigh. ;) But oh well, they do describe what I think of your artwork and stories. :D I look forward to seeing what they come to! :D
