If the gang were to be humanized
« on: January 07, 2014, 11:09:25 AM »
As some of you may know, I have made my own humanized versions of the LBT gang in the fan-art page (as well as Littlefoot's mum, Sharptooth, Tricia ,Chomper and Ali)


Now here's the question for those of you who like the idea of the gang been humans.
If they were to be humans what kind of way would you like to see it happen?
As it says in the list, get Reincarnated as humans and start life again from scratch and live like normal humans.

Or their original dino self's to be turned into human by either magic or sic-fi powers, and learn to lives as humans?

(I'm sure the admins will fix it)

I generally like the idea of the gang being transformed into humans/humanized. As for the how I think either way would work out in a fanfic or a RP (we won't see that on screen anyway :rolleyes). While the reincarnation idea sounds nice I reckon it will be difficult to work out how exactly that will happen or what will cause that (that is, if you don't mean that they simply, one day, die of old age (or whatever reasons) and become born as a human being).
The other two possibilities are very similar. What exactly do you have in mind for "magic" or "sci-fi"? Like what we have done in the "A sudden change of species RP" (in case you have read the concept).
It's basically that the Rainbowfaces from LBT 7 read something in the stars and the next day they offer each of the Gang a wish. One of those wishes, turns the Gang into Sharpteeth by some strange sort of magic (I guess it would be rather magic than sci-fi).
Anyway, I can't really put a vote since all three option could work out well. If I had to, I would go with magic for it is quite easy to come up with a logical plot idea where it is used to humanize the Gang.
 
This humanization could work well as a RP or a fic...
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

I think that transformation via magical or sci-fi powers would be the easiest to work into a fanfiction or a roleplay, although I have no particular preference between the two.  I went ahead and cast my vote for the sci-fi element option because we already have science fiction elements being implied in cannon (the rainbowfaces in LBT VII), whereas the same cannot be said for outright magic.


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Mender's Tale
Mender's Tale.

The border between sci fi and magic is rather thin. While I can imagine a way that doesn't violate the laws of physics to transform the Gang into humans or to transport the rainbowfaces into space as seen in the movie (I have thought about such issues for some of my own works), it would represent a tremendous, to us today insurmountable, engineering challenge, and though it would be nothing out of the blue and rely on  extrapolation of existing technologies, those extrapolations would have to go quite far (and if there's anything we know, is that nothing in nature is a linear function, but becomes some sort of curve at some point). So it would still present a leap of faith, it would be essentially magic. Whether the setting has stones, swords or spaceships is irrelevant.

I would say go with where you are strongest. If you have any sort of backround in natural sciences or technology, you could try the sci fi approach. If your main strength is literary prowess, then you can try the other two, and the sci fi approach as well, though with the latter you may leave some grumpy old-fashioned sci fi fans wanting (but those aren't your core public anyway, I think).

No I have not read that  "A sudden change of species RP".
What I would have in mind for them to be turned into human via sic-fi powers, is for the gang to be kidnapped by aliens that have DNA altering  powers etc (and time travel)
