I definitely accept them as Zira's parents. She got her good looks from Azola, and her personality/harshness/everything else from Kuzimu. The pair more than justifies the upbringing of poor cubbie Zira, and everything that happens once she's an adult and has her cubs. It definitely makes sense and t'would be amazing if they were canon characters
No. I accept the fact that they are fan characters and nothing more
The danger of them is that fans will start taking them as serious and canon, citing them in arguments over canon issues. A good example of this is =DJCoulzAnimalsOnly's rendition of Ahadi and Uru. Fans now take this depiction, and the fan drawings of it, as completely canon and constantly I must point out that Uru had neither a description nor depiction within SNA, and Ahadi's only description was his dark mane and green eyes. Plus the story that goes with them corrupts the facts of the books and the argument that the monarchy is masculine-based and as such, Ahadi should have been the son of the previous King, hence he is KING Ahadi and not 'Prince Consort' Ahadi if Uru was the Royal one of the pairing
The backstory is nice but if it starts corrupting arguments about Zira's attitudes towards her children it's going to be intensely annoying. Very popular art has the danger of being taken as canon and that's damn annoying when fantards cannot separate fan creations from canon ones
Ahh, there's not a polling option for meee. I sort of accept them in that they are the best version I've seen and they make sense and I like them, and yet I don't totally accept them because they're not actually cannon and I'd be open to other interpretations.....
