I apologize if there are already any topics out there like this; I haven’t seen any, so I thought I’d go ahead and make my own suggestion!

Now, if I’m remembering correctly, frozen lions don’t get any flavour text. That’s almost a little awkward, isn’t it? You have all these mortal lions in your pride to chat with, and then there’s just...Frozen McGee. Sitting there. Watching.
To put an end to this tragic situation, I thought it would be pretty cool if frozen lions could have their own flavour text! I understand they may not fit with specific mutations if you have a kid with one that’s been frozen, but I tried to make the ones written below as fitting as possible for all lions without mentioning specific traits.

A few examples:

”You come across (Name) surrounded by cubs, telling them a tale of the far-away past. Or, at least they’re acting like this is some ancient story - you remember being there when it happened, two whole days ago.”

“You decided to ask (Name) why they never hunt with the rest of the pride. They seem to hesitate for a moment before, face blank, they ask you the same thing. You’re suddenly self-conscious.”

“You and (Name) were having a great time basking in the sun together when they suddenly let out a loud groan and announced that they felt old. You tried very hard not to roll your eyes.”

“Taking a nice little stroll through the territory together, you and (Name) were having quite a deep conversation about their past relationships with other lions, and how it feels for them to have been alive for so long. After you question if you’ll meet again after it’s your time to go, they answer ‘yes’ - and, with a grin, say they’ll make sure to keep the next king in line. You can feel a sob coming on.”

If you don’t support - or if you do - feel free to comment below and tell me why! ;o;

This suggestion has 246 supports and 1 NO support.

I love this idea, even if I don't have any frozen lions. Flavor text is always cute and fun.

I love this but I feel like I need to add

You notice (Grandpaw) staring at (Name), clearly annoyed. You think you hear them mutter something about wrinkles as they stalk away.

What about something along the lines of

"You ask [lion] to do something for you, but they turn and squint at you, asking when you got all bossy. They go on to talk about being there when you were born and blah blah blah- you roll your eyes and walk away."

I love this idea

There could even be text relating to the 'frozen' state of the lion - "From the corner of your eye you see an icy glint coming from [Name]'s coat. What was...?"

I honestly hesitate to freeze any of my lions due to the lack of flavor text (and thus any real interactivity at all), but this would definitely incentivize me to save my favorite lionesses once they're older!

I haven't yet frozen a lion... But if this is implemented I will definitely want to do this! I adore the interactions. (Polycaudal interactions are my absolute favorite.)

Any flavor text ideas for frozen cubs? like maybe, "You ask *frozen cub* what it's like to never grow up, they blink and ask you what it's like to grow up. You don't have an answer."
