This is probably the oldest one...........so if it's been asked before, I'm sorry.
WHAT IS BRISBY'S FIRST NAME!?
The movie never says. The book never says. That's not fair. She's the best character and the most important one....EVERYBODY ELSE HAS A FIRST NAME SO WHY DOESN'T SHE!? It shocks me O'Brien didn't take the time to think of it....I mean, I have a lot of OCs and the first thing I do is name them! It's just odd, really!
I've heard fans refer to her as Elizabeth; I'm guessing because of her voice actress? Lol, that works for me and I think it does fit her. I just wish we knew the true answer. Because this drives me nuts.
This guy is just one giant mystery in the movie. Why does he look so ancient if the injections slowed the aging process?
Possibility 1: He was already an old rat when they captured him. I have a small doubt of this though because when you see his arm unlock his cage in the lab, it looks like a normal, youthful rat arm. But again, we only see his arm so you can't tell all that much on what the rest of him would look like.
Possibility 2: Learning sorcery cost him his youth perhaps? How he learned it is also another mystery. I don't know if I'm among any fellow Whovians (Dr Who fans :D) but that series was the first one to introduce the idea to me that magic is simply the most enhanced form of science. It's a popular theory in sci-fi that if one's mind is powerful enough, you can develop telekinesis and powers like that. And using such power can greatly take a toll on the body and one's health because of the energy it requires. Thus Bribsy collapsing after she used the Stone the first time. It was only once so I'm sure she's all right. Nicodemus used his powers constantly though...so this might be what caused him to age so much?
When do you suppose Jonathan's death took place? How long was he with his wife and children?
I cannot remember if the book states this or not. I seem to have lost my copy. ;_; It seems rather recent to the movie's start when he died. Nicodemus states that has been four years since their escape from NIMH when he records Jonathan's death in the book. Did Jonathan meet her right after they left NIMH? If so, they were together for four years which means Teresa can't be any older than that. But she's a mouse so.....yeah. Actually, I think I remember that the book stated Timothy was bitten by a spider a year ago and he was a baby but Jonathan helped carry him to Mr. Ages so Jonathan was alive then. Then our answer to the second question must be "in between 3-4 years." And Jonathan was killed in less than a year before the story takes place in the book. The movie is likely the same.
The rest of the NIMH rodents didn't associate with others outside of their group. Mr. Ages seems that way too....even though characters know him like the Shrew. I wonder what made Jonathan leave and start a family?
Did the book state the time period of the story? We have electricity....but the type of tractor Fitzgibbon uses looked very old. Fifties or sixties, perhaps?
What's Nicodemus's connection with the Great Owl? Does anyone headcanon the Owl came from NIMH too?
How do you suppose the scientists were able to track the rats to the farm? o_o Granted, it took them a really long time. Haha. Five years. Five years, you incompetent numbskulls! XD
I'm beginning to understand why NIMH's fanbase is so huge; there's so much to explore and discuss and it's all really interesting. No wonder there is so much fanfiction XD
