Before the War by Matsu-sensei Before the War by Matsu-sensei
The recent ep of Adventure Time showing Ice King's past was so great that it made me want to draw up a comic.

I'm aware that there are probably errors here in the timeline, and even some far-fetched bits (even IF IK and Marceline were both alive before the war, what are the chances they both just so happened to have been in the same location?), but ah well.

And just in case you don't understand Ice King's backstory: [link]

So, how much do you think Pen and Co. used your idea from this comic, in hindsight?  Because I distinctly remember thinking how cool this was and then it became an episode a short while after I saw it.

Actually, they did have a past together but Marceline was a child that time.

This was actually drawn a year before the episode 'I remember you' aired so the artist wouldn't have known.

Marceline survived the war (or didn't since vampires are technically classified as undead) because she became a vampire... but how did the Ice king live?

Ah so it was his magic that kept him alive, and drove him insane. (just watched the episode "I remember you") I'm still very fascinated by the Mushroom war, and how Marceline originally became a vampire, and follow the Ice king down his road to maddness.

The whole mushroom war thing WAS an accident. Pen said that when the episode buisness time came out he just went with it.
If you want to know more about the mushroom war go to the wiki it has soo much detail and even made the possibility that adventure time takes place in North America possible.

._____. Oh man, reading this one hurt. Really nice work here. It's very sweet as well as painful to read. Can't help but to appreciate how carefully drawn it is for its monochromatic style though.

And then, it turns out that they WERE in the same location after the war. Because Rebecca Sugar is obsessed with pulling on your heartstrings.
