The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

Is there anyone in LBT that you would call evil?

The real villains are you two for derailing this thread after such an abrupt bump. :P Take it to PMs if you must. :SmugSpike

Apologies. XD

In that case, I guess we're both in agreement now. :)

Poor Littlefoot, what an unfortunate situation to end up in. I kinda wonder what thoughts were running inside the Sharptooth's mind the moment he was hit in the eye with the thorn - albeit by accident because Littlefoot was trying to escape from his pursuer. A normal and rational mind would shake it off and let it go, but not for this guy. I would even say that he wasn't completely open minded before his eye ends up getting injured, making him more enraged. During a hunt, the natural survival instincts probably held mostly dominant over his normal cognitive abilities. So when the Littlefoot accidentally hurt him in the eye, it was most likely taken as some sort of challenge by Sharptooth, and therefore that's how the endless chase for the blood and meat of the Gang started.

Or we could just say that Sharptooth is a very egotistical guy in general and doesn't like his pride to be hurt like that. The more simple explanation of course, but at the same time, not explaining the full scope of possibilities though. :p
And the really, really simplified explanation is revenge. :o

That is a pretty interesting idea.  :thinking It would explain why the gang ran into the "Sharptooth" twice on their travels as well as give him characterization outside of the standard meat eater.

Just because they show the sharpteeth in a bad light, doesn't mean that they're the only bad guys this world has to offer. A leaf-eater can be just as brutal and cruel as the carnivores. It's just about showing the perspective of the other side. Often you have to inspect the story from both angles to get the full story. Wouldn't it be a funny plot twist if the sharpteeth suddenly turned good and vice versa? :p

Interesting analysis. Sharpteeth may do bad simply in the hunt; they are hardwired to be violent in prusuit of food. But the supposed calm leaf eaters have no such exuse; and if one of them is cruel there is no pleading I was hungry and overstepped. Down with the Leaf Eaters!  :bestsharptooth

Certainly Ozzy, Rinkus, Sierra, Red claw. I also consider Shorty somewhat evil, even though not so much as the former ones. Shorty was not particularly nice to Littlefoot at first, tried to hurt him, and even when he returns in the series, he still pretends, as he has passed the leader challenge, so he will lead the gang right away, leaves few members of the gang behind, and he does not really act to them as a caring friend, and I do not think, that he is so much reformed.
