I had to read it again....for a minute there I thought you meant that you dreamed Blackberry came out of the closet! Haha.  Then I had to remember Strawberry was female for the latest series.

Gosh...all these gay rabbits all of a sudden.

These dreams generally happen when I think a lot about WD during the day (or at least shortly before going to sleep).  Also I generally write them down soon after waking up before I have a chance to forget them.

That must be really annoying :/
It might be a good idea to have a pencil and a notebook next to the bed.

It can be a little annoying if it was a really good dream. I'll try to see what I can do since there's nothing next to my bed that I could put a pencil and notebook onto

I do that now. But even then the memory of some dreams can easily slip away. On the other hand sometimes I see/hear something during the day that triggers my memory and I suddenly remember a dream.

I had to laugh at the "Strawberry appreciates it"  :strawberrydoe

I had a another dream related to WSD (but sadly not with any actual rabbits in it).
In a city nearby there was a festival going on that only lasts 15 minutes and I decide to attend it. I look through the shops in a hurry because the festival will end soon and finally see one I like. I enter and it is rather dark. On the ground there are two €5 notes. I know these belonged to my brother as he had just bought something in this store. The owner wasn't there so you could take whatever you wanted and pay by leaving the money on the floor.
I look at some dvds and spot the Watership Down film and look at it. I put it back because I already own it and then spot some more covers with WSD on it as well as TV series rabbits ( :bigwig3:hazel ) and one that says 'miniseries' I get excited and want to grab them but then there is suddenly a man crouched next to me who asks me, "Can I use these notes to pay off my debt here?" I'm annoyed, he looks shady, and I say "No, those aren't even mine so I can't decide that."
I look back to the dvds but they're gone. I look all over the shop but can't find the WSD dvds anywhere. I am confused and disappointed. But then I spot a packet of purple cough-drops. The packet is decorated with an image of the miniseries and the words, "Watership Down Season 3". I think, "Finally Pipkin is in" because he is on the packet too. Next I spot some small cards (phone cards??) with more images of the miniseries and the year 2014 on them. I decide to buy these and share them on the forum.

Shop-related like the above! :

In part of my dream I was visiting a town centre and I noticed a charity shop and crossed the road to view it thinking: 'I wonder if they'll have anything WD-related'. I looked in the basket they had out just outside the shop and - lo and behold! - there was a Bigwig soft toy in it! And this one was supposed to be an original film one, though apparently made in Japan. Not too big, not too small. He actually looked more like Hazel in a way, but regardless, it was really nicely made! He had a sticker on him saying about £35 and I thought I was just about willing to stretch to that, but then did have to mull over it a bit longer. When it came to me deciding to go to the counter, it was rung in at £210! Apparently the label on him saying 35.00 was to do with weight or so. Anyway, needless to say, I was most certainly not willing to pay £210 (and this - a charity shop!!) which was a great shame because it was a lovely teddy.  :violet

I had a short watership down dream tonight.

New watership down statues have just been released. (I was talking about miniseries merch on another post the day before I had this dream) They were copper colored with a white chest. They looked a little boring for it was hard to indicate that they were watership down characters, but the bonus was that they were on sale! They were originally $50, but that day you could get them for $30. I pondered if I wanted one or not then I woke up.
It really only went on for about a minute before my alarm clock went off.

^ Probably was a sign that the statues weren't for you. :P

I had another SHOP-related dream again. Why is that? Anyway, I visited a different town centre to my other dream, and just looking out at a town square of greenery was a little Watership Down shop! Apparently the place I visited was close to the actual hill or something. There were a few images of rabbits next to the shop's name, in quite fun front style above the shop. On a high level in the shop were a few animatronics, like a slightly odd-looking film Blackberry. Think there were a few items which weren't even directly WD-related... had to pad it out somehow, I guess. The rest of the dream was pretty odd.

Last night I had a dream about the 3D models Cockatiel posted (although in the dream the post was made by Chibiscuit instead).

The person who posted the models on ArtStation also posted several leaflets about the creative process behind the miniseries.  I print them out because I have the feeling that executive producer Rory Aitken will force the artist to take them down.

The largest leaflet, and the only one I manage to take a look at before waking up, talks about adapting the characters.  Several paragraphs are spent talking about keeping the characters true to the book while "updating" them.  It is far from complete: Hazel, Fiver and Strawberry are all absent from the document, and Clover only gets one brief mention.

Hyzenthlay is mentioned a total of 9 times in the leaflet, and her book self was described as a "gangster", because of her determination and quiet plotting against Efrafa.  I don't agree with calling her a "gangster" but I agree with the rest, and decide that I should post about it when I review the next chapter in the re-read.

Finally, there is a quick list of most other characters, with a few sentences about each one of them.  The list includes Orchis, Vervain and Silver.  At the end of the list, they talk about Bluebell and his crush on Blackberry; the leaflet's author makes it clear that he doesn't approve of this.

I had a frightending dream last night.  :pipkin-oh

I was watching the miniseries for the third time now ,but the story was different then how I remembered. The whole time they were deciding on if they should leave sandleford or not. Hawkbit and dandilion was conjoined together like Catdog, but their body was extremely long! I was asking my friends if they saw the Watership fown Netflix series. I was telling them how I really didn't like how Hawkbit and Dandilion looked like Catdog.
After waking up, I now want to draw a picture of conjoined Hawkbit and Dandilion.
