Ooh! Ooh! Fanart idea for the artists out there..I'd _love_ to see the
hyenas in tutus. "Lion Lake", anyone?

My little brother read this one over my shoulder. He said "This is
starting to look familiar." Then he rolled his eyes and left the room.
Ah..the mark of an unfortunate soul who has not let TLK touch his life
yet..

This nearly resulted in another chair mishap. :)

Nal!! *pouncehug* It's good to see you around here again. I was going to
reply to this when I got my last tlk-l digest, but my STUPID keyboard is
not letting me reply to that message. This one's working out all right,
though. Computers..gotta love 'em. Anyways, welcome back!

Speaking of AotTLK-LT, I wish someone would write a current version of
this..so many changes have taken place since then. Actually, I wasn't
even on the list when I first read that. That made me search until I
found the place where I could join this great group.

Okay, I'll bite.

<claps> Beautiful. I will now proceed to do as you wish.

I'm Jennifer, a 17 year old lioness (er, girl) from Canada. I love
animals, and they are probably the driving force in my life.

TLK is the most inspiring thing ever to come my way. I didn't see it in
the theatre, but I managed to rent it twice. Then, I decided I had to
own it. So I went off to Sears, and in the electronics section, bought a
copy and went home clutching it in my little paws. I didn't watch it for
a few days; I don't really know why. I do know that I felt there was
something special about it from the first time I saw it. I went to
school humming "Hakuna Matata", and I had written down the names of the
songs. My mom thought I was silly; after all, I was in Grade 7 and I was
too old to be obsessed with a Disney movie. When looking for a photo
album a few days later, I said I wanted one with adult Simba and Nala on
it. (CYFTLT was my fave scene back then, and is still one of the best
IMHO) My dad said "Aren't you a little old for that?" So thanks to the
fact that I allowed my parents to control who I really was, I didn't let
the TLK fan in me come out for several years.

Fast forward to 1999. It was about May when I got the Net. I still liked
TLK, and thought about it occasionally. When nobody was home, I put on
my TLK soundtrack (the OMPS was the only one I owned at the time). I
looked for TLK sites on the Net and found lk.org. I read fanfics, even
though I was still shocked to find out that there were people like me
out there. Even people OLDER than me that liked it (no offense to
everyone out there who is older than I am!) Then on October 21, I
received my first tlk-l digest. I had had problems figuring out how to
post, and had thought that posting to the NG was the same as tlk-l. No
wonder I didn't get any replies! Then, things changed. I sent an email
to Fox/Kovu. He kindly replied, and I will always be thankful for him. I
was on my way.

This list has given me the best friends a person could ever hope for. I
have cried on many a shoulder during my time here, but found nothing but
unconditional acceptance. Nobody ever told me that I should stop
complaining or get a hold of myself. I've been through some pretty rough
stuff in the past 11 months (if I can say so myself), and continue to
hit the occasional bump in the road. But because of every person here, I
have managed to fight against those forces that threaten to overthrow
us. I have had more emotional and spiritual victories in less than a
year than I had for the previous 16 or so years of my life. Thank you
all from the bottom of my heart.

A few last little bits of info: I write poetry and occasionally work on
one of the many fanfics I have started (insert "Hail Sarabi"s). I have a
golden retriever/lab named Lady, and I don't like math. I'm Akirah the
cub on ATMuck, and Akira the elder lioness on Africa MUCK.

Now that I've bored you and spammed you all to death, I'll go now.

Jennifer

TLKiTWOL!
