Everyone Loves Wembley by Negaduck9 Everyone Loves Wembley by Negaduck9
In the Fraggle Rock episode We Love You, Wembley, Wembley hits it off with Lou, a female Fraggle who actually didn't take advantage of his please-everyone nature. All would be well if Mokey wasn't determined to turn a nice friendship into a torrid love affair. And then the Trash Heap, who just loves screwing around with the Fraggles' heads, gives him a "love potion" that makes everyone adore him. The effects of the potion are sadly temporary, and by the end Wembley actually grows a spine and tells everyone to back the heck off.

Jeez, that description makes it sound like I don't like that ep. Well, I do. There's something so funny about the way everyone goes into rut over Wembley, especially Boober. And the way Red, embarrassed at being head over heels over him, drops him on his green furry behind.

Gobo is not a midget in this pic. He's just standing in a hole or something. Or maybe he's on his knees. Yeah, that's the ticket. He was down pretty low in the original scene (which you can see on Youtube) as well, to avoid blocking Wembley.

By the way, the first thing Mokey did was put a necklace of flowers on Wembley. It would be terribly crass to make a pun about Wembley actually getting lei'd onscreen, however, and I would never stoop so low.

"SUGAR LIPS!!!"
Anyway, I really love this picture and I agree that Marjory does like doing that to them... but she has good intentions most of the time. And she's their Oracle so they do need her. Even if she does mess around with them...

It was lucky... but sometimes ignorance is bliss.

I love how they're all at first just regular ol' sweetheart talkin' with a whispery-type voice and then Boober comes up and - nearly in his normal voice - "SUGAR LIPS!"

Boober is the most demonstrative of the gang, kissing him over and over. And doesn't it fit that the foodie of the group would have a food-based term of endearment?

If the potion hadn't worn off so quickly Boober would have rushed to the kitchen to start cooking up some of Wembley's favorite food, whatever that is. Toasted radish sandwich, maybe?

Doesn't it just figure that Boober would give him a food-based term of endearment?

I didn't, because my family never had HBO. I got into it only last year, after I got the complete box set. So, my good times have been much more recent. :)

It figures that Boober, the chef of Fraggle Rock, would use taste imagery, now doesn't it? ;)

Funny thing is, in my stories, the five of them have formed a big family, so he never had to. I think it would break his heart to choose one over all the others, especially if that meant shutting Gobo out.

I TOTALLY LOVED that episode where all the Fraggles kiss and love Wembley!! :D:D:D

I also loved that funny song!! :D:D:D
"Wembley Wembley number 9,
Your so fair and your so fine.
Love you 'til the end of Tiiiiiiiiime!!!
Wembley Wembley number 9!"

Fraggle Rock usually never uses songs that funny!

Can you blame him? You'd be freaked out too if Red called you "darling."

Well yes, I would be. After all that's not in Red's nature to call people "darling". That is more of a Mokey type thing.

Plus, that stuff would be reserved between Red & Gobo if Red were brave enough to tell her feelings to Gobo in person (her interview--[ [link] ]--is merely half the battle). XD

Man, I love Wembley's "What is going on and how do I get out of it?" face, so cute! And I always admire someone who can actually draw Fraggles, I've never found the knack.
I also giggled at the lei'd pun much harder than I should probably admit to. >.>

Negaduck9 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2011
Thanks, glad you like it. And I'm glad you have a slightly-dirty sense of humor to get the lei pun. ;)

I've found that drawing Fraggles is easy, but drawing specific individual Fraggles is tricky. I wonder if I'll EVER get Wembley's hair right.

Boober can be downright cuddly when he wants to be. Usually it's with Mokey, but he does get affectionate toward Wembley too.

Yes. IIRC, in "Mokey and the Minstrels," when she comes back Boober gets particularly huggy.

TherealRNO Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
Yeah, but he was particularly ga-ga over Tosh too. See "Boober's Quiet Day". As for Red, the reason she felt awkward holding Wembley is because not only is she generally not the touchy-feely type due to her tomboy personality, but she probably considers Wembley as the kid of their little troupe. Plus, the only Fraggle that generally catches her attention would be Gobo, who often gets attention from the others moreso than her, which spurs jealousy (as per I Want To Be You), nevermind that Red is generally a very competitive Fraggle--with her competitions as her way of showing she likes someone--and with whom does she compete with the most? *snickers* Throw in her recent comment about secretly admiring Gobo in a 2010 interview for the Fraggles' comeback (video version [ [link] ] & audio version [ [link] ]), and there you do then. XD

There are a few eps in which Boober is infatuated with Tosh, but we never see Boober even touch her. It's not love, it's just a case of the hots. On the other hand, He does hug and kiss Mokey (when motivated--he is, after all, very reserved for a Fraggle), and his affection for her is present throughout the series.

As for Red and Gobo, heh, I agree with most of your points, and as a matter of fact that feeds into a story I'm working on now. ;)
