Cera Showcase - March 2019
« on: March 01, 2019, 12:52:18 am »


Okay, okay, Cera.  Geez...

As she so nicely reminded us, it is indeed Cera's month of appreciation!  :yes

In this topic please feel free to discuss Cera as a character, to share your own creations (fanfics or fanart), or to mention some of your favorite fanworks of others involving this character.  For a full set of rules please see the Montly Character Showcase topic but keep in mind that this is meant to be fun as opposed to any sort of contest.

Just to get things started I will pose an initial question to the Cera fans on the forum: What are your thoughts on Cera, and how has your opinion on Cera as a character changed over the years?

Rhombus: Just a side note - one of us will change the icons to Cera ones in a timely fashion. Unfortunately I do not personally know how to perform this process yet.

Cera I think has gotten tamer.  I mean look at the Cera of the first film, and then the Cera of the sequels.  She was a real prejudiced snot in the first film.  None of the sequels have ever been close to such an attitude.  Even that crazy angry song is mild!

She definitely has, Petrie! In the first film you can clearly see her upbringing affecting her behavior to dinosaurs who are not like her. This mellowed a lot after their first adventure.

I really like Cera. Sure, she has some attitude problems and is biased occasionally, but she wants to do good (as long as it is done her way ;) ) She is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in, but is also willing to change her point of view eventually, as long as people show her how things could be if she approaches them from a different perspective. This is extremely mature, and I'm sure many people could learn from that.

I believe she can make a great leader. She knows what she wants, she wants everyone to join her in that cause, and is willing to listen to others if they keep bringing up the same point :lol

Also, who could resist this wink?  ;)Cera

Calm down, Cera, calm down...
 I didn't want to do this, you know.
They made me!
 It wasn'r me! It wasn't...
*runs away*

*retuns when Cera is gone*

Phew.
I missed previous showcase, since I couldn't say anything new and not commonplace about my #1 character Littlefoot.
So now, here is my couple words about possibly the most interesting character for me from LBT universe. Cera.

Yeah, she's interesting for me because she is complex, and my attitude towards her completely changed a lot- since the first time of watching original to today days.

During first watch of original movie, and rewatches during early years, I couldn't see her anything but as b*tch who spoils the group. I so disliked her... Since childhood, I just disliked people who had Cera's character in real life, so my attitude was terrible towards Cera.
And then , with each year, with each rewatching LBT universe, and other cartoons, with growing up, with meeting different people communities... I started to like Cera, her pretty complex character, her rock temper and sharp tongue, her inner true nature behind mask of angry threehorn of her kind, I liked it more and more. And not only she changed beside my eyes. Many other fictional characters with her character from any other media - I see them all from different position now. :Dl
And now, she became one of my favorite characters in LBT universe.
Congratulations, Cera. Life changed my attitude towards you, 32000 times different than it wasat the beginning.  ;)Cera
After escaping grimdark, I found myself inside romantic ship-fanfic... WTSH? How did I even get there???

Cera is actually one of my favorite characters, mostly because of her attitude and how complex she is, although it didn’t really start off that way lol. When I watched the first movie I really, really, really disliked her, and I might even go as far as saying I hated her because to me she came off as just a spoiled, selfish and prejudiced brat.  :sducky

But she definitely mellowed out throughout the sequels and really grew as a character, and was a lot more open-minded. You can tell she really cares about her friends and family, even if she is a bit brash and blunt. Needless to say, I definitely don’t hate Cera anymore  ;)Cera

Cera is probably the character I empathize with most, next to Littlefoot. She changes dramatically as she learns the value of others, while retaining the same fiery spirit that defines her. She can be occasionally frustrating, but I think I appreciate that tough pride and determination more than ever.

Cera is rad.

Cera's ready to kick the Flathead out and have her time in the spotlight! (OK, she would have done that over half a month ago, but still... :p )



So I share a lot of similar initial attitude to her that other members have mentioned. She was always uptight, arrogant and all around not that pleasant. Now that I'm older I've come to terms with it and find her to be one of the most interesting characters due to how flawed she is, which easily makes her the most dynamic one of the gang.

While there was a general separatism among the different species, from what we've seen of Mr. Threehorn in the sequels with the more outright hatred and feeling of superiority it's impressive that Cera has managed to make the progress she has. I find her development at the end of the first film to be one of my favorite parts, with her realization that she was wrong and comes to save the day with the final blow to the rock to knock it and Sharptooth over.

I also like the small change in dialogue between "finding" the Great Valley and finding the Great Valley with going from bragging that "I found it!" to "Littlefoot, you found it!"

Ah, Cera! x(cera

There's a character my opinion went a complete one-eighty on. Understandably, my opinion of her wasn't the greatest when I watched the original LBT. She came off as a braggart who was too stubborn for her own good.

Then I watched the sequels.
The sequels completely changed my perception of her. She comes off as a more down-to-earth, "WTF are you thinking?!" realist to Littlefoot, and I really relate to her and her exasperation with her friends as a result. Maybe I'm a realist and a pessimist very much like Cera, but her constant brash, haughty shooting-down of Littlefoot's idealistic viewpoints is a great foil (and arguably more realistic in a darker world) and works wonders in their relationship with each other and the rest of the Gang.

She's sorta like a devil's advocate and her actions have snowballed many good and not-so-good things throughout the series, almost always resulting in someone learning a lesson as a result.

Cera also gets great character development as well, arguably one of the best arcs overall in the series. From haughty "threehorns are the best" to a she'd-never-admit-it-but-implied "I'll fight you for my friends". Even in the final films, her arc with her family: Topps, Tria, and Tricia is one of the saving points of LBT XI & XII.

She's a great threehorn. Arrogant and prideful, but we love her for it.

A quaint creature who soars when the Night Circle is highest in the dark sky, messing up his circadian rhythm in the process. Truly, a tragic flyer.

In terms of LBT, love to write stories! :)
