I was tagged by my friend :iconalexraccoonglider: who picked out Frederick for me to talk about.

 

RULES:

1. Post 8 facts about your character.

2. Tag 8 other Characters. (You can do this if you wish, it’s optional – I could only manage four who have characters I could pick for them)

3. Post their names along with their creator’s avatars (Again optional if I tag you)

 

FACTS:

1. Frederick first came about from a random joking remark about my having a pet-ferret on a bus, that had got loose and was making girls on the top deck scream. The idea stuck. (Though I’ve no idea what was REALLY going on upstairs)

2. For many years, Frederick was little more than an imaginary friend, in the form of a sentient ferret. When Danbuster eventually developed as my fursona, Frederick naturally transitioned to be his best friend.

3. Over the years, his wardrobe has remained pretty consistent, but he grew from a regular-sized ferret into a five-foot anthro in keeping with my scaling principle of anthros being both human-sized and to relative scale with their species in relation. (Hence my mice are well over a foot high, while anthro horses are slightly scaled down to seven or eight feet on their hindlegs)

4. From the start, Frederick was written as an orphan whose mother died in childbirth and whose father was never present (except to conceive him, that is). My reasoning was that, unlike Veil from the Redwall tales, Frederick would not have any of the corrupting influences that made “vermin” species inherently “evil” but rather he’d be raised by a good solid family who would bring out only the best in him; the Wilkinson otters filling that void, though their individual characters didn’t develop until years later. Frederick was perhaps my first OC to defy stereotypes. I found ferrets cute, what I’d seen of them in Last of the Summer Wine, and was sick of them being cast as “bad guys”.

5. I believe Frederick is physically the third strongest of all my cast, behind Marquila RocBeak and Leroy Rudderbuck. His otter foster brother Cedric is a close fourth. Frederick can raise Cedric off the floor despite the big otter’s girth.

6. Frederick is severely shortsighted without his spectacles. However, being a ferret, he has a brilliant sense of direction and good at navigating tunnels or mazes.

7. Thanks to his upbringing, Frederick is a strong swimmer as well as agile. He is a natural born athlete. Bending his spine, he can stand on his own head… literally!

8. Frederick is a tidy-minded fellow and an excellent housekeeper. This is just as well, considering he shares a house with a crazy March Hare and a scruffy rat with a very UNtidy mind… he’s also a surprisingly good cook.

 

Now I tag:

Danbuster's Wardrobe - Natural Fur by DCLeadboot
Danbuster's Wardrobe - Natural Fur
Second of four pictures.
I wanted to try some alternative appearances for Danbuster besides his usual familiar costume of kilt, scarf and jumper.

And after getting up in the morning, he heads for the shower to get cleaned up ready to face the day. I guess natural fur counts as a sort of "outfit" (as in birthday suit) - though the real reason for this one was to get an idea of his physical build and how alternative clothes would fit to his figure...
Loading...
Mum and I just went to the pictures to see Steven Spielberg's movie adaptation of The BFG this morning.
We both enjoyed it very much! :D
If you get the chance, you should totally try and see it sometime! Great film, great effects and hilarious funny moments!

Hey, you know about all those "Abridged series" on Youtube?

Someone started a "Redwall Abridged".

I watched it, and though I have never seen the original, I have a sneaking suspicion the characters here are a bit ... off. ^^;

I get the feeling a lot of the jokes are lost on me because I am unaware of the original, though. :shrug:


But the guy making it is very good, actually. :nod:

He may not have the "budget" of a "DBZ Abridged" or even a "Friendship is Witchcraft", but he more than makes up for it.

Quite the "underdog", so to speak. :nod:

His "My Little Pony"-Abridged series is actually one of my favorite abridged series, as he manages to go from what seems like nonsensical silliness to a suddenly serious story I want to see the outcome of. :noes:


So, dunno where that Redwall Abridged is going, or if that was just a one-time-thing;
And again, I don't know enough about Redwall to fully judge it myself ---

but I just thought I'd let you know. =P


.......I tend to ramble when I'm tired. :XD:
Off to bed I go. ^^;

Ah, hehe... rather cute and amusing! :giggle:
Yeah, Abbot Mortimer wasn't really that pushy, of course - he was a bit overly pacifist, though, when it came to taking the offensive against Cluny the Scourge.
Martin the Warrior's spirit spoke through the tapestry, but only with the odd riddle or something.
And Matthias... he was certainly quite the sassy teenager who was trying to be a good mouse of Redwall... ;)
Cornflower was certainly the love interest... though we haven't seen much of her yet, so I don't know what they'll do with her in this series... :giggle:

Cluny was slightly less comical as the villain in the actual story
And Shadow didn't talk like Ned Flanders... in fact, he bared spoke at all... :XD:

Hey!
How're you doin', pal?

Say, could you do me a favor and contact my friend :iconcosmocoyote: for me?  I wanted to chat with him and I don't seem to be able to get a message through to him.  It appears that I'm blocked from communicating with him through his account.  We're on pretty friendly terms and I don't know whether or not he knows that I'm blocked from communicating with him, on here.  Could this be a technical glitch on DA's part?

Hi, I'm fine thanks :)
You?

Hmmm, sounds like a glitch there... are you sure you're blocked from your friend there?
