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.

So here we return to George in his basement, obsessing over his notes. More fun stuff that I've had in my head for years, and now finally I've brought the image out.

The reason why Suzannah didn't vote is because women weren't allowed to vote back then. Of course, like I said before, women at a town council meeting in 1908 is kinda dicey, but I tells the story my way.

Ever since I finished EB Zero back in 2000, whenever I imagined George poring over his notes, I pictured him sitting at a scanty table in a dark, dank basement scene. It feels soooo nice to be able to put these long-time mental images on paper.
Also, I was originally going to color the mayor's over-vest red, but then when I looked at the next-to-last panel (where he's silencing Suzannah), I realized that I made him look awfully Russian, so instead, I colored his vest blue. And speaking of Suzannah, I think I may have made yet another historical oopsie here: back in those days, women had very few privileges, so what are several women doing at a TOWN COUNCIL MEETING? Of course, from the very beginning, I knew I wanted the characters to have some sort of audience with the mayor to discuss the situation with George, but originally it was supposed to be a small enclosed meeting with her, James, a FEW involved townsfolk, and the mayor; but eventually it evolved into a full-out town council meeting.
At any rate, I needed Suzannah present to be able to move the story forward. So I fudged a little.

Trying to explain some of the WHYs and HOWs of a story tends to get a little hokey and unbelievable in my case. Just bear with me and accept it as gospel: James WOULD have heard that window opening (even if he were asleep... or tending to his crops... or in town...).
I was so half-tempted to have James bark "Constant Vigilance!!!" after his "I would hear the window being opened" line :)

I love that first panel on the bottom row. George is sitting on the bed staring at his feet like a naughty little boy and Suzannah and James are like his parents scolding him :)
