Concerning RP: The Bashful One
« on: November 29, 2007, 10:09:10 AM »
I'm hoping the mods dont mind if I posted this, and if it is in the wrong section, then please by any means move it, but let me know something. thanks guys! :)

This thread is to discuss the continuing RP of The Bashful One, which is the introduction of my personal dinosaur character, Denton.

I have a few good thoughts to share so far, plus some character sketches of the young longneck himself. I hope this thread can also be used to help the RP further into more interesting and adventurous territories!



Okay, where do I begin? Well, so far I've been pleased a bit about how well I introduced Denton to the series, shy awkward and well, you know...  the few who have contributed to it so far have done an awesome job portraying their characters and Littlefoot (I can hardly wait to get to the full gang though) I felt some of the conversations and introductions did carry on a bit too long in some areas and it was hard to focus on one thing without another thing getting in the way, but all in all, we were able to pull some things off smoothly, and the long intros maybe could be overlooked as the story grows over time.

I had thought of so many things I wanted to say in this thread last night while on the job, but sadly because I was at work, I simply could not sit and write them all down, but I'll do what I can to dig up those thoughts and feelings concerning the story so far and get them in this post...



I should make a note that where the story is at right now (or where I made my last post) Denton finally declared that he finally wanted to venture out and see the valley. many of you might not see or understand it, but this is a kind of emotional and moving part for me in this story (I was listening to If We Hold On Together, Jordin Sparks version at the time). Its symbolic, pretty much of my own life. Pretty much like Denton, I've lived long sheltered and away from the world by will. And in a way, this is like me saying that I'm sick of it, and that I myself am ready to move on. I'm ready to meet new people, make new friends and see the world for what it is.



Like Denton, I was also hurt deeply by others. Like Denton, my heart was crushed, dreams and hopes were diminished by tragic and scornful moments in my life. And ever since, I decided I wanted nothing more to do with the world, or the people in it. I wanted to be on my own. Denton I've found much like many other characters I've created over the years has some form of symbolism to my emotions and my views on life. Denton represents to me a victory over denial and depression. He's become more apart of my mental image than I had ever thought he would.

And his making new friends has given me the lesson that its important to move on... that I need friends to help me to get past my past hurts. That life continues.

These are my personal thoughts so far, from the development of this character. I've found that I favor him now more than I intended to. and I suppose that is something to be proud of.

Also, I cant get 'If We Hold On Together' out of my head... its such a beautiful song and its fitting to this enlightning mood that I'm in *smiles* a beautiful song. yes.

An interesting article.  I've enjoyed the rp so far.  I thought you did Denton well.  I"m not sure about my own rp as Littlefoot and Mim, but those are my first time as those characters.  

I look forward to where this rp will go to.  I'm sure the others involved enjoyed themselves as well.  We may get some more folks to join after a bit.

I have really enjoyed this rp so far...and there is one thing I've noticed about OC's is they tend to mimic their creators alot. I myself have been through sever physical pain, I've broken several bones (one had to be RE-broken and set straight) and had so many surgiers I lost count!

And a lot of that pain is shown in my fanfic with Longtail...I'm starting to wonder if that's just good plot development, or if I'm just being silly. But maybe I am on to something... :blink:

Well, I am one of the smarter people in my group of friends, and my character is incredibly intelligent (with an I.Q. of over 200).

It's ok, you can only post when you have both time and an idea.  If you have one but not the other it is sorta hard to post.   :DD


Nice pictures of your character.

Thanks.. they're pretty much practice sketches.. I can whip them out in a matter of minutes prior to a post.. it may come in handy for if I ever want to illustrate a scene

shouldnt be hard to learn to draw the other characters

I was going to say if you meant all of the fc's, wow, you are going to be very buzy typing for them all.   :DD

Unless someone else wants them I can do Ducky and or Petrie in addition to my Mim and current Littlefoot.  Unless they'd rather 1 or more of those be left open.

Maybe arrange the poses of them alphabetically.  That is what I do to keep it straight, and look back to see who I did last in case I forget.  Hope I'm not taking to many Fc's.

Do you prefer all the chars a player does in one post, or would you prefer them be broken up into FC and OC posts?

It really doesn't matter to me what order they go in, if you can fit all of your characters into one post then congratulations....if not that's okay too. Just do what you can with the FC's and OC's you've got.

Ah, well it seems like everyone is almost all together, and Denton is finally getting the chance to meet the gang..

well.. when I say 'almost' all together, I mean much of the RP group has accumulated almost into one spot -_o

I'm loving how the RP is moving on, and the side story with Mim seems to be going pretty interestingly

It's easier to keep track of with most of the folks in one place.

With Chomper's appearance I wonder if Denton's mother will shriek like in some old cartoons and jump to the top of a tree.  :)

Hey, Kor, here's the thread you were trying to find  :P:

and concerning the cave. I think I misread something, something concerning Ducky and a cave, I'll have to relook at the post and maybe re-edit my post to make certain corrections

sorry for the mixup!

edit: found my error, fixing now

Didn't know you were an admin, congrads.


Sorry, I don't remember what the tree seed toss game thing is called, or if they ever named it.  I recall seeing them playing it in at least 1 scene but don't recall what movie, tv episode or where in the movie or episode.
