Kopa's reception by Flameshadow117 Kopa's reception by Flameshadow117
"Awww! Mom, he's beautiful!" Kiara cooed, leaning in close, "hello little brother."
Vitani shifted uncomfortably, shuffling thoughts around her head, debating how, and whether to translate them into words. Giving up on restraint, she blurts, "So, is he new prince?"
Nala looks up calmly, "Well, he'll be first in line until Kiara's cubs are born."
Vitani's uncomfortable shifting suddenly infects Simba. "This... reminds me of another... Hey, Kopa, never grow up and try to kill your nephew?" he pretends to joke, though true worry hangs around the edges of his voice.
Kovu looks serious, "We won't let that happen, our cubs will be friends. We'll teach them never to hate like that..."
"Yeah" Kiara chimes in, "There will always be an important place here for my baby brother!"


My favorite, and under-represented theory of where Kopa fits into all this!

Haha, kind of. The Lion Guard character isn't exactly Kopa. Though he should be. Why they couldn't just name him Kopa is beyond me. :P 

I've heard the Vitani theory before... like when she says,
"Where's your pretty daughter, Nala?"
"Vitani!"

It could work, though her outlander nose would be a bit of an unusual trait. I prefer the darker theory, that she's Nala and Scar's daughter, and Nala abandoned her because she couldn't cope with it. 

Though, frankly, I don't see why she can't just be Zira's daughter, as advertised =P

While I'm admittedly one of many supporters of the "Kopa-was-born-before-Kiara" theory, I feel that there aren't enough people who depict him as being younger than her

Also, the main thing that caught my attention was Vitani's face XD "Aren't there millions upon billions of fan-made Simba and Nala cubs? Why do we need another official one?"

Yeah, it's not the most popular theory, because it involves considerably less angst, and since it's post TLK2, it's less fun to play around with. The whole fun of Kopa is making his "hidden story" fit in and interact with the plot of TLK2. =P

But in terms of filling all the plot holes, it certainly makes the most sense... and has the most potential for a happy ending. ^_^

I thought Kopa was born first.

Kopa first appeared in the Lion King: Six New Adventures series, which was published around the time the original film came out. Kiara first appeared a few years later in Simba's Pride. Kopa did appear first, and since Kiara isn't in the Six New Adventures books, it is usually assumed that Kopa is older than Kiara. However-- since the books aren't technically cannon, and Simba's kid is Kiara in the movies, Kiara supersedes Kopa, therefore, officially, Kopa doesn't exist!

So, who was born first?.... it's all just fans making up their own stories, trying to fill in all the plot holes left between the movies and the books/comics/other media. I think just because Kiara wasn't in the books, doesn't mean she wasn't there. Just like Sarabi wasn't in Simba's Pride. I don't think that means the character was dead, she just wasn't in the film. So; this is my little story to fill in the plot holes =P

Well I saw a video in youtube, Kopa was killed by Zira, and Kopa is Vitani's childhood friend. Those things happened before Kiara was born. It wasn't colored though, but the voices are for real themselves.

lol! Yep, I do like the idea of him being born first and killed by Zira, because it's nice and dramatic, and the opportunity for doomed romance with Vitani! But this way he can grow up with his family and not have to be mauled by Zira :XD:
