Queen Mary Shows Ninten the Wisdom of the World - by kenisu3000

Queen Mary Shows Ninten the Wisdom of the World




Here's another image that has been haunting me ever since I completed EarthBound Zero six years ago. It is strange, since this never actually happens in the game, but I always had an image of some added scene where Queen Mary takes Ninten out to the castle balcony and philosophizes about the stars in the sky. Of course, it's assumed that night does indeed fall in Magicant. Anyway, when I finally, FINALLY bought the Mother 1 soundtrack (re-issued) earlier this year, I fell in love with the song "Wisdom Of The World", which only served as backup for my mental image of this mysterious scene.
You may notice that Ninten isn't wearing his hat. that's only out of respect since he's in the presence of this enigmatic queen from some time-forgotten dimension. Also take a good look at the central emblem on Queen Mary's pendant. It's God's Tail, the rock that warps Ninten into Magicant.

Sometimes I feel a little awkward when I write characters doing, with ease, something I have immense difficulty with in real life. In this case, it's having a phone conversation. I have (just the image of being handed the receiver makes me shudder), and speaking to members of my own family is still no exception. Yeah, I know, I'm a psychiatrist's dream patient.
On another note, I knew this page and the next few were going to come out looking one-sided, even while I was doing the sketches for them a good year and a half ago, because we hear (well, read) both ends of the phone line, but only see Ninten's side. So I tried my best to make the visuals the least bit boring as possible without distracting from the dialogue, by making Ninten fidget and make an occasional face. And there's also going to be some visual flashbacks coming up, so Ninten won't have to be in every single frame.

That whole business about Suzannah getting run over by a drunk driver… well, I worried about that. Not because I thought it was too “adult” a theme, but because I suddenly remembered about Prohibition (even though there was still a lot of bootlegging going on during that time anyway), but then I did the math, and chalked up the accident to take place in 1918, two years before Prohibition became a stateside thing. Phew, close call!
But THEN, I worried that a Model-T Ford might not have been powerful enough to kill anyone. So I looked it up, and apparently that model was capable of going at excesses of 30 mph, which I don’t doubt is fast enough for a reckless drunk driver to plow over a helpless pedestrian.
I hate having to research history.

After writing all of this backstory, I realized that, in adhering to the “mother-dominant” theme of the game, Itoi probably intended for George and Maria to be Ninten’s ancestors on his *mother’s* side, not his father’s. Whoops. Oh well, I guess it’s no big deal.

Yeah, okay, so I went a little overboard on the jokes here, and I’m not even sure if they’re funny. That’s kenisu.
