The true end of Tomorrow's Sphinx by Kooskia The true end of Tomorrow's Sphinx by Kooskia
(c) Kooskia (fancomic)
(c) :iconrathacat: (characters and original book)

I admit to have kept this idea in mind for long time: I enjoyed much reading the stand-alone novel "Tomorrow's Sphinx", even if I think it's less good than the Ratha series (mostly because too much explains all at the end).


I admit to have liked the character of Rahepsi, but I don't think to have seen such abused character like him in Ratha's series Xp
I enjoyed the little hint about him at the end, and I can guess one could eventually imagine a future reconciliation between him and Kichebo (also let's be honest.... it has been basically Kichebo making mistakes and misunderstanding and Rahepsi suffering because of it! Not a wonder that he was a bit pissed of at the end xD).

Well... in this little "alternative sequel/ending", we have Rahepsi absolutely contrary at the proposal of reconciliation and his attempts to reach the freedom in some world free from female cheetahs....

A pity for him that the  A.I. of the escape pod correctly selected a planet without other cheetahs....  but inhabited by some other famous felines Xp

Hi Kooskia!

I love this alternate ending!  Poor Rahepsi.  I'd forgotten how badly he was abused; he didn't deserve that.  Despite the obvious possibility of a link-up between Sphinx and the Named, I didn't think of it.  I'm glad you did.

Hehe thank you for coming to comment it!

Yeah, i admits i felt a bit sorry for Rahepsi xD But i liked how you write that the humans said he could be saved on were working on it.
I think it's reasonable to imagine he and Kichebo to settle their issues (basically emerged after repetitive and mutual misunderstandings), maybe with some time and growing, even turning in something more ; )

Another interesting meeting would have been with Kichebo's own mother obviously, and I wondered if she could have played a part in making Kichebo reckon with what happened between she and Rahepsi

PS: possibly you already saw it, but some time ago I and some other fans have made some works on the Ratha wiki
rathascreature.wikia.com/wiki/…
Now in the "Characters" section all the characters of the series are gathered x3 with tables and details of themselves and their familes etc...

Hehe sorry Xp  Usually i made plenty of fancomics for a number of different books i read...
From ones with dragons characters, to felines... more often cats (Warriors from Erin Hunter), but also the creatures of Clare Bell's books.

Hahaha,fantastic!:D The expressions are priceless,I like the large eyes you use in these comics,they are quite succesful in conveying the different emotions/mood.

I felt sorry for Rahepsi too,while he was quite a nice character and seemed to genuinely care for Kichebo from the start...The more he tried to do good,the worse it got.Kichebo has had a very hard time too though,from the very beginning.Another case where humans intervene and cause trouble for other creatures.:P How unusual is that.

And Rahepsi must be certainly cursed to end up on a planet inhabited by his ancestors :XD: 

You should make another one about him living in that planet with the Named and about how he tries to adjust there with all the nutty females and the treelings :XD:

Or sort-of creepy? Honestly i don't think i could really learn how to draw anime-like eyes xD
And strangely i only tried to put them in Named Series related fancomic.


Yeah well... i think Kichebo acts in a pretty much common way for young people: rushing by the sudden instinct of her own desires and oppressed by her issues without thinking too much and not having a full knowledge of the world.
I've honestly hoped that at some point toward the end Kichebo could have found the words to express her feelings to Rahepsi: i just mean basic feelings of saddness and sorry for how her actions caused harm to him first while attacking him and then when he lost again his comrades.

I think (as fan) that a sort-of "what happens later" could involve (maybe after some time) a matured Kichebo expressing her sorry for what happened to him and explains herself for her behavior, and hopefully Rahepsi understanding her.

True xD
I was tempted if making Rahepsi escape pod falling into a "space-storm" like in Planet of Apes (Tim Burton movie Xd).
But i've also remembered that actually in the cartoon it's sort of said clearly that it's another world.
So maybe (for this specific comic) we can say that the earth of the future is an unrelated planet with the one of the Named.
