1''[[ Nala: My Father's Madness]]'' by [=ArtemisEpona=] is a ''WesternAnimation/{{The Lion King|1994}}'' fanfic that takes place during Scar's reign. It goes with the theory that Scar is Nala's father.²²The story starts on the day Mufasa died and Simba went missing. Not too long after that day, Scar learns a startling secret: Nala is his daughter.²²-----²!!This fic provides examples of:²²* AbusiveParents: Zira emotionally and physically abused Nuka, while Scar [[ParentalNeglect ignored him]].²* AnimalReligion: At minimum, lions display religious ceremonies such as burying their dead.²* ArrangedMarriage: Because Scar's two cubs with Zira aren't suitable heirs (with Nuka being sickly and Vitani being female), he tries to arrange a marriage for his son Nuka. Unfortunately, the only lions of appropriate age in the pride are [[RoyalInbreeding his two sisters]].²* BrotherSisterIncest: Scar tries to put Nala and Nuka into an ArrangedMarriage after Vitani's birth, ignoring their age-gap and the fact that they're half-siblings. He threatens Nala with death if she disagrees, saying he'll instead marry off Nuka and Vitani (his full-blooded sister).²* DarkFic: There's a fair amount of dark themes such as explicit child abuse and incest that is dark even for ''The Lion King''.²* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Sarafina]] is attacked by an angry Zira. She quickly dies of her injuries.²* DoNotCallMePaul: Scar hates being called by his original name "Taka".²* GenderedInsult: From a young age, Zira would tell Nuka to behave "like a lion and not a lioness".²* GroinAttack: When Scar gets too touchy with Nala, she back-kicks him in the groin to throw him off her.²* IllGirl: Nuka was born scrawny and sickly. He only became more-so due to his mother [[DeniedFoodAsPunishment often refusing to feed him]].²* KissingCousins: Nala is Scar's daughter, making her Simba's cousin. The two still fall in love.²* MistakenForMurderer: Sarabi believes that Zira killed Mufasa and Simba. She doesn't suspect that Scar himself killed his brother and nephew.²* ParentalIncest: Scar becomes attracted to Nala as she grows and tries to seduce a near-adult Nala. Nala doesn't know their relationship at the time, but she isn't interested in his advances. The pride is throughly disgusted when Zira reveals this moment to them. Scar tries to explain it as Nala looking a lot like Sarafina, but no one buys it.²* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Nala, Nuka, and Vitani are all Scar's kids. In canon, Nala is another male's while Nuka and Vitani are only AmbiguouslyRelated to Scar.²* RememberTheNewGuy: The Outsiders are explained as being estranged from the rest of the pride, explaining why they're not in any scenes of the original scene. They're just conveniently off-screen.²* SettleForSibling: Zira had originally been in love with Mufasa, but he only had eyes for Sarabi. Eventually Zira settled on Scar (and Scar tolerated her enough to take her as his mate).²* SurpriseIncest: Nala and Simba don't know that they're cousins when they fall in love. Sarabi and Mufasa also didn't know when they allowed them to be bethrothed as children.²* ThatManIsDead: Scar tells Sarafina that Taka, the lion she fell in love with, died when his mother died. Sarafina counters back by saying she died when Taka died.²* VillainousIncest: A sign of Scar's depravity and worsening SanitySlippage is both his attempt at seducing his daughter Nala and later trying to arrange marriages between his cubs.
