If I may introduce myself: Leo-rah
« on: December 08, 2015, 11:08:23 PM »
Good evening, my fellow rabbits! :)

I'm already registered here for quite a while, but now finally I'd really like to introduce myself to you, and participate actively in this forum, instead of only reading here and there. ^m^

My name is Leo-rah, or simply Leo. Some may know me under this name. I'm a 24 years old student from germany and a fan nearly from the beginning of the tv-show of Watership Down, as it was aired in 2001. At least back then I noticed it the first time. It still is my most favourite medium of the whole WSD universe. Not really a big fan of the movie, but I've started reading the book a few weeks ago, just to know even more of my favourite world.  :pipkin2

I also am the owner of the german youtube channel called "WatershipDownTV", maybe some of you already know it, as I'm providing the german episodes of the tv show there bit by bit.

For those of you, who might want to take a peek at what this buck looks like :P


Some hobbies of mine are e.g. composing my own music via VSTs (virtual Instruments), therefor I have a same named Soundcloud Account named: Leo-rah
I only have released one track until now for my personal Fanfiction, but the plan is to write something like a whole musical journey through my world of Watership Down. Themes for the characters, scenes, places etc. Well, what a score is being made of generally. The whole enviroment. :3

The second one is just writing my own story. I'm working on for nearly more than 10 years now! °,..,° Never I've tried to bring it down to paper, but in the last months I finally started my work. I'm planning to release it in several volumes later, describing the way of Leo.
It's title is Watership Down - Tigris and Euphrates and starts with Leo loosing his complete memories, getting captured by Efrafan owsla, followed by some toturing of the Owslafas, trying to get out his origin from him.
Not just writing literary, also I love to RP in WD, it's also quite a hobby I love. ^_^ (e.g. on Animexx)
For those who might be interested, the cover here is linked. But it's german only, I'm afraid. My english isn't good enough for such a huge story, where such deep details are needed.

Link to Book

Oh my, haha, I really hope I didn't bore someone with this wall of text, just about the stuff I'm doing! D: Might have looked like a commercial, nor? ^_^" Sorry. I mean, maybe this just shows how much I love Watership Down. No words can describe this. :3

Other pages I am active on sometimes are Animexx, DeviantArt, and mainly YT (Only WSDFan).

I'd really like to get to know fellow fans who might be as crazy for WD as I am. :D
This forum looks really cozy, love the background a lot! <3
Leo-rah nuzzles around.

Friendly greetings.
Leo-rah  bows down deeply.

cool cool, the forum needs more participants as I see it.

Your writing is very good, I just took a look at it. Well, I took a look at what Google translate gave me, but it's very nice writing nonetheless. It's nice to have you here, Leo.

Hiyas Leo! Nice to have you here! :) Jump in, we don't bite. I'm definitely going to tale a look at your music, but I'm afraid I haven't seen the TV show, and don't read German so. . . . Sorry?
But it's cool to see you deciding to be more active! :)
If you have any questions, I'd be glad to help if I can.

Welcome to the forum!

I really wish I spoke German...

By the way, your character looks really good.

Oh my, you translated it via Google Translator? Can't believe the results were any comprehensible, hrhr. ^_^" Thanks for your kind words, really gladly hear if it appeals to someone, what I am writing. :)

Greetings and Prost! :cheers :D  Name ring's a bell, could be possible, but I never have been really active there then, I think? o.o
Just googled the name and just found out it's closed since the last year.
But it could be possible!

Thank you so much! :3 Are you also german, or did you run it through a translator? Can't believe it makes that much sense after such a process, hrhr. :D Thank you, really appreciate it! :3

You too write? Maybe we can exchange a bit! Always willing to read WD Fan Stuff! <3

If I remember correctly, we have spoke in the past. You (wsdfan) were my inspiration for the video I made on YT. You share a similar passion for WSD. Welcome to Fiver's Honecomb, Leo-rah!

It seems that there is a lot of interesting things related to WD in German.  Your fic, per example, sounds interesting based on your description, but when I put it in Google Translator, it was rather hard to understand.  I had a rough idea of what was going on, but I probably missed several important details.
