light-of-aether asked: Since you're asking for headcanons, here's an interesting one: things to do with the Metroid universe that are NOT directly to do with Samus or the Chozo- things about the federation or other races or characters or anything. Got any of those?

Let’s talk about the Ing, and how they’re totally alternate universe versions of the X Parasites.

Aether being struck by the Phazon meteor didn’t create Dark Aether - it was there all along, in a parallel universe to Aether’s. The impact and general strangeness surrounding Phazon merely opened portals to the place.

The Ing began as very similar to the X, but had different evolutionary pressures that pushed them to become more easily free-living, with less blobby default forms and different ways of infecting hosts - ones more successful at keeping the host alive, but changed to suit the parasite. They can still obviously do the primordial X thing of absorbing a body after killing the host and replicating it, though.

Without something like the Chozo or Samus to restrain them, the Ing have taken over most of the Dark Milky Way. The destruction of the portal to Dark Aether may or may not have actually destroyed the planet, but it did cut off a dangerous breach between the two universes.

“During the game Metroid Prime 2, you encounter 1 living Luminoth. Now, their Lore recalls quite an epic battle with the ING, and MANY Lumioth falling in battle. The ING can reanimate Dead Fedration Troopers… so, why no Dark Luminoth Battle?A Reanimated Luminoth Warrior wearing a Suit of Battle Armor, this Cool Guy would be a Miniboss in one of the many Portal Rooms after retreiving all of the Sky Temple Keys.Named simply, Dark Portal GuardianHe fights with one of those Crystal Staffs that you see often during the game, so be on your toes”

Do Not Be Afraid by ~JNRedmon
Artist’s comments excerpt:
“She asked me to draw what a child of her OCs Skylark and Nightfang would look like, and she asked for a drawing of an OC of hers called Vulaan Kulaas. So I just decided to put them both together! I was really interested in Vulaan Kulaas, since she described it as a “Twilight Luminoth,” sort of combining Metroid and Twilight Princess. Which is totally awesome. I hope I combined the two in a way that works.As for the child of Skylark and Nightfang, I tried to draw something that looked like a cross between a Lizalfos and a Dinolfos. (I’ve been combining things a lot lately…) I hope you guys like this!”

I like OCs!
