Little Detective in the Making by FaithFirefly
Little Detective in the Making
And then Basil was an adorable little babu. <3 Don't mind me, inspiration just struck last night.

So apparently there's this theory out there that Basil is actually his last name and his first name might possibly be "Sherringford" (written by tranimation-art. That name brings to my mind's eye an image of a disgruntled little boy's boy mouse pup who begrudgingly wears his suit and responds to "Sherringford" for Mummy and Father - but as soon as he gets the chance, the jacket comes off and he runs off to explore. I can easily imagine Basil may have grown up in an upper-class family, and based on my guess that he's in his late 20s during the movie, he would've been a pup in the 1870s. Therefore, he would've had to put up with the knickerbocker suit. D'AWWW.

And really, we all know what a handful he is as an adult for Ms. Judson - shooting pillows and getting feathers everywhere, darting all over the place - I can only imagine what his poor parents had to put up with with him as a kid. :lol: He's probably a little younger than Olivia here, and probably upset because he can't go outside and explore today. :ohnoes: Baww.

Pleeeeeease comment, guys!! D:

Monsters Inc./Uni OC - Silvester 'Silver' Boggs by FaithFirefly
Monsters Inc./Uni OC - Silvester 'Silver' Boggs
"Why did Randall go from being such a nice sweet guy to such a jerk? Was it seriously all because of petty peer pressure?"

Not in my book. I think something/someone else was at work here for Randall to fall quite as hard as he did. And heeeeere he is.

-----------

Name: Silvester "Silver" Boggs

Monster Race: Herpien/Lacertilia

Age: 25 at the time of Monsters University, 35 at the time of Monsters, Inc.

Notable Features: Silver is an iconic "tough guy" and has been the instigator or several prison brawls. Because of this, he's gained a network of scars over the years. The most notable injury Silver has to show, however, is his tail - permanently mangled, broken at two different points. It's easy to pass this off as just another result of a prison brawl, but only his family knows that he's had it since he was a child. And that those two broken points are a result of an iron grip.

Scaring abilities: Not only can Silver blend into his surroundings like the rest of his family, but he's perfected a scare tactic known as "The Rattlesnake Wake".

-----------

Bio: Silvester Boggs, called Silver by all who know him, is Randall's big brother by seven years. And as you'd assume with most villains, the brothers' family history is pretty messed up - but not in the way you'd expect.

By the time Randall was born, the brothers' father, Ian, had left the family. And for the better. This man that was the carrier of the Boggs name was a monster in every sense of the word. Both Silver and Elsa (the mother of the boys) endured brutal cruelty and abuse from Ian for the several years before Randall came along. When he heard that a second kid was on the way, he wasted no time in getting out of the picture.

Without his father to physically and emotionally demean him, Randy had a much more enjoyable childhood by comparison. And yet with the void in his life left by his father, he depended on his big brother to fill that. Which, for the most part, Silver did just that. The two were like any brothers, clashing and arguing and at each others' nerves many times. Yet at the same time, Silver was a monster Randy looked up to more than any other. From controlling his invisibility to football to learning how to throw a punch and defending himself, he learned it all from his big brother. And yet at the same time, all of this came with a dismal mindset left on Silver from such a brutal childhood - trust no one, because they might end up trying to hurt you. Build yourself up to be stronger than anyone so YOU are the one that is feared. Command respect and you will get it, no matter what.

This lesson resonated in his little brother's head for years, but Randall still maintained a sweet demeanor. But as we know, when the brothers split ways - Silver to a scaring job at Monsters Inc. and Randy to the college life of Monsters University - things drastically changed. And ROR was just the beginning of the downfall. ROR reiterated to Randy that mentality of "command respect and you will get it, no matter what" and he finally began to give into it. But the final nail in the coffin came when Randall graduated college and was perplexed to find that his brother didn't attend. He then learned that his brother was banished to the human world because of the first acts of (what would be a long line of) crimes in Silver's criminal career. It was here after all that had happened that Randall realized everything his brother had taught him had to be true. And with that in mind, he made sure to make a feared name for himself the moment he was hired as a rookie Scarer.

By the time of Monsters Inc., ten years after Randall made that decision, Silver's criminal charges have only climbed in number. After escaping back into the monster world and committing a murder, it was decided he was too dangerous to leave in even the human world. He now lives in the high-security prison of Monstropolis, which he knows can't hold him there forever. Randall does go to him now and then to visit - but after all that's happened, their relationship is very strained.

-----------

SO………I actually created this guy (or at least a prototype of him) yeeeeears ago. Like, back when the first Monsters Inc. came out. But all I knew is that he was Randall's brother and he was colored silver. After the prequel came out, his use skyrocketed to awesomeness. :heart: And this might not be his absolute final design. Monsters can be VERY varied, and I've still yet to really design what the parents looked like. I'm aware he does kinda look like a color-reversed Randall, yes. XD I just really wanted to introduce him.

BTW guys, be sure to read "Winds of Change", a fanfic by :iconcryssy-miu:!! It's unfinished, but she decided to include Silver as a major character this post-Monsters Inc. story about Randall trying to find his feet back in the monster world. She writes out a bit more of the family history and I love it. :heart: First chapter here! www.fanfiction.net/s/9488905/1…

So most of you who watch me probably already know about this guy.

Kestrel of the Meoquanee Tribe by FaithFirefly
And so far he is........less interesting as a character than I intended. :hmm: I made him not only because I wanted to design a Native American-inspired pony, but I was trying to think of the kind of guy that would be a good "special somepony" for Fluttershy. (Which yeah, I think a lot of writers will tell ya that that's a bad thing to base a character creation on. :XD: Whoops.) I mean, he's still my baby and I still love him, but so far I can just tell you this about him.

- He's an ornothologist
- He's a wanderer, and never stays in the same place for long. Therefore, he's resourceful and makes his living off the land.
- He has an osprey that is his companion, but not his pet as she is still wild and not with him at all times.
- His family is alive and well, still at his home Native Equestrian tribe in the mountains. (Apparently this is a bonus in not making him a Gary-Stu. :lol:)
- He's quiet and not quick-to-anger.
- He's awesome with birds, but doesn't really have a hope with handling other animals. In fact, he kinda gets scared if things start to get out of hand with them.

I'm inclined to think that he can handle himself and stand up for Flutters if she needs it, but at the same time I'm wondering if that would only hurt things. This character just doesn't feel right so far. But again, at the same time, I don't think Fluttershy would fall in love with someone with that extreme of a personality. I'd think she would like someone like her, quiet and gentle and sweet. I've heard some people complain that she herself is a Mary Sue, and I can see where they're coming from, but I think she has just enough of an endearing quality to her that it doesn't really become a problem.

So, my fellow pony-writers........ Any advice? XD I don't think it's impossible to make a good love interest - in fact making one for Flutters is a good challenge. What say you?

Yes. XD And it makes his character such a tragic one to think that he started out as this innocuous little kid.

Thanks! :) My main concern with the whole R34 thing is the kids. :( Parents may be slacking in monitoring what their kids do online, but Bronies could do their part to make sure these kids don't have their innocence wrecked like a condemned building so early. Apparently the average age kids are exposed to porn nowadays is 7 or 8. And I doubt all the R34 made of a KIDS' show is helping that....

Thanks for making the group!
