:frith After an afternoon raid on a nearby garden, Vesper enters the warren's honeycomb as is  immediately surprised to see a lot of rabbits here. Confused he asks Blackberry what's going on.
 :silverweed2 "Hey Blackberry, What's up the warren this evening?"
 :blackberry3 "Ohh hey Vesper, You did not hear? It is Bright Side's Birthday today, remember?"
 :bigwig2 "It's her birthday. Holy crap, I did not Know. I forgot to get her a present!"
Vesper starts to hyperventilate as he also begins to panic over his sudden situation.
 :blackberry2 "It's ok. Remember you're new here."
 :silverweed2 "I know, but I have to give her a present! She has been an amazing friend to me since I joined the warren and she deserves an amazing present for she is one of the most specialist doe in our warren."
 :blackberry "I see, well I have a good Idea for you"
Blackberry then whispers Vesper her present idea in which Vesper becomes tharn.
 :glowingsw "That is one of the greatest birthday gift idea ever, thanks, Blackberry. I'll be right Back!"Says Vesper as he races away out of the Warren's Honeycomb.
Then a doe hopes over to Blackberry as she wonders where her friend has gone.
Blackberry Answers saying that Vesper had decided to eat more Flayrah and drew Bright Side attention away from the upcoming birthday present for her from Vesper.;)

Ok my beautiful doe, I got something for you and everyone that would of the utmost of awesomeness.
Hope you like musicals. :fiver
I have to first give credit to 'vinzol' http://vinzol.deviantart.com/ for allowing me to use his written fanwork of Watership Down. I haver to say, I did make a few adjustments to make the story much more enjoyable. If you listen to the song that goes with the scene, it is truly breathtaking, you'll see;)
Ok I present Watership Down The Musical,By Vinzol
Watership down the musical

List of characters:

Hazel should be a 20-30 male tenor.

Primrose should be a 20-30 female soprano.

Fiver should be a 20-29 male tenor.

Silverweed should be a 20-31 male tenor.

Blackavar should be a 20-33 male tenor.

Bigwig should be a 29-37 male tenor.

Spartina should be a 29-38 female mezzo.

Campion should be a 30-39 male baritone.

Blackberry should be a 27-34 female mezzo-soprano.

Kehaar should be a 39-50 male baritone.

Gluk should be a 40-51 female soprano.

Hannah should be a 38-51 female alto.

Pipkin should be a 12-14 male tenor.

General Woundwort should be a 40-50 male tenor.

Dandelion, Hawkbit, Scree and the rest of the Watership Owsla and the Darkhaven Owsla can be any age, any gender and any range.

However The Black Rabbit of Inle and Elahrah should be voiced by someone from the series.

I would try to imagine humans in animal costumes for this one. And I don't own Watership Down or these songs. Now on with the show!

(The scene starts out at a tree at the top of a hill. It's morning. The song I'm Alive from Xanadu plays as a whole warren of rabbits, two gulls, a hawk and a mouse come out from left to right.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uuAh49qkNQ

Owsla: *We're Alive.*

Pipkin: *And the world shines for us today.*

Owsla: *We're alive.*

Fiver: *Suddenly we are here today.*

Blackavar: *Seems like forever*

Owsla: *And a day.*

Hannah: *Thought we could never*

Owsla: *Feel this way.*

Spartina: *Is this really us?*

Owsla: *We're alive. We're alive. We're alive.*

Gluk: *And the dawn breaks across the sky.*

Owsla: *We're alive.*

Silverweed: *And Lord Frith rises up so high.*

Kehaar: *Lost in another world,*

Owsla: *Far away.*

Bigwig: *Never another world,*

Owsla: *Till today.*

Blackberry: *But what can we say,*

Owsla: *We're alive. We're alive. We're alive.*

Hazel: *Suddenly came the dawn,*

Owsla: *From the night.*

Primrose: *Suddenly we were born,*

Owsla: *Into light.*

Hazel: *How can it be real?*

Owsla: *We're alive. We're alive. We're alive.*

(Hazel Steps forward and addresses the warren.)

Hazel: My dear friends I know life can be hard, but every once in a while we must all look to the bright side of life. I know General Woundwort is still alive in Darkhaven but one day we shall be free of him.

Owsla: Yeah!

Gilia: Father, (Hazel looks at her.) Who's General Woundwort?

Hazel: General Woundwort is a big mad rabbit who wants to destroy us because we're a threat to him.

Kehaar: Yeah, and don't forget, ugly Captain Vervain.

Hazel: Of course, soon this warren and future warrens will know of our victory. But first lets let the world know who we are. I am Hazel-rah leader of the Watership warren.

(One by one they step forward.)

Primrose: I am Primrose, second in command and Hazel-rah's mate.

Fiver: I am Fiver, the seer of the warren.

Blackavar: I am Blackavar, tracker and Fiver's mate.

Silverweed: I am Silverweed, I have powers similar to Fiver's.

Bigwig: I am Bigwig, captain of the Owsla.

Pipkin: I am Pipkin, captain of the junior Owsla

Spartina: I am Spartina former Darkhaven spy now friend to Watership.

Blackberry: I am Blackberry, herb specialist.

Kehaar: Kehaar, sky lookout.

Gluk: I am Gluk, second sky lookout and Kehaar's mate.

Scree: Scree, sky lookout in training, and adoptive daughter of Kehaar and Gluk

Hannah: I am Hannah, the only mouse on the warren.

Dandelion: I am Dandelion.

Hawkbit: I am Hawkbit.

Clover: I am Clover.

Holly: I am Holly.

Snowdrop: I am Snowdrop.

Mallow: I am Mallow.

Gilia: I am Gilia.

D,Ha,C,Ho,S,M,G: And we're the Owsla.

Hazel: *Suddenly came the dawn,*

Owsla: *From the night.*

Primrose: *Suddenly we were born,*

Owsla: *Into light.*

Hazel: *How can it be real?*

Warren: (While dancing) *We're alive. We're alive. We're alive. We're alive. And the world shines for us today. We're Alive. Suddenly we are here today.*

Hazel: *Seems like forever,*

Warren (except Hazel): *And a day.*

Hazel: *Thought we could never,*

Warren (EX H): *Feel this way.*

Hazel: *Is this really us?*

Warren: *We're alive. We're alive. We're alive.*

Bigwig: Owsla, are you hungry? (The adult owsla except Dandelion shake their heads up and down.) Well then let's find us some flayrah. Heads up! (The adult Owsla except Dandelion put their heads up.) Forward march! (The adult Owsla marches in a straight line and off to get some flayrah. Silverweed, Kehaar, Gluk and Scree go somewhere else.)

Dandelion: Come with me young bucks and does and I'll tell you some stories about El-ahrah.

(The junior Owsla except for Pipkin go off with Dandelion while Pipkin goes up to Fiver and Blackavar.)

Pipkin: Say Blackavar, Fiver, (They look at him.) How did you two fall in love?

Fiver: Well I foresaw that I would fall in love with him.

Blackavar: But I however had trouble confessing to him. I was worried if he wouldn't accept me or if the whole warren wouldn't accept me. Because back in Efrafa a buck loving another buck was a crime. I wanted to talk to Kehaar but he was too busy, so I decided to talk to Hannah to see if she would accept me. (Flashback. Blackavar goes up to Hannah.) Hannah?

Hannah: Oh, hello Blackavar.

Blackavar: Hannah I need to tell you something, and I want you to keep this a secret. Otherwise I probably wouldn't be accepted.

Hannah: What is it? Did you kill someone?

Blackavar: No it's not like that it's just, (Looks around and then whispers into her ear.) I think I'm in love with Fiver.

Hannah: Oh I'd sleep with him if I were you. That's what I would do if I like a nice male or female mouse.

Blackavar: You like both sexes?

Hannah: Yes but I haven't found anyone right for me.

Blackavar: So what should I do?

Hannah: Go to him. Tell him that you love him, and pray he'll accept.

(Then Blackavar goes out and searches for Fiver. He then sees Fiver dancing to the Stolen Kiss number from Lord of the Dance. In about one minute and fifty seconds Blackavar joins him.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syoiuSZZIOc

Fiver: I've been expecting you my love.

Blackavar: You have? You've been in love with me too?

Fiver: Yes. (Takes his paw.) Lets dance.

(And then Blackavar and Fiver dance the way Michael Flatley did with Bernadette Flynn and Gillian Norris in Lord of the Dance. And at the end of the number Blackavar touches noses with Fiver. While all this is going on Bigwig and Spartina are watching them. As Spartina goes over to them Bigwig struggles to hold her back but she pushes him aside. Spartina walks in on them.)

Spartina: Welly, welly, well. Looks like love has found you two.

Blackavar: Don't tell anyone about this.

Fiver: (Chuckles) It's all right. I told everyone my vision of you and me and they accepted me.

Spartina: Yes. And thankfully this isn't Darkhaven. Because Darkhaven hates rabbits who like the same sex as they are. The only way out is either banishment or death.

Blackavar: Thank Frith this isn't Darkhaven. I'd rather face banishment than death any day.

Fiver: Same here.

(They look at each other and go off together. End of flashback.)

B&F: And that is how we fell in love.

Fiver: We fell in love from dancing.

(Hazel, Primrose, Kehaar and Gluk come in.)

Hazel: Primrose and I fell in love at Efrafa the moment we touched each other.

Kehaar: Kehaar and Gluk fall in love at garbage barge the moment Kehaar sing.

Hazel: And we could never be so happy. (The song So Happy Together by the Turtles plays as Hazel and Primrose dance while in each others arms.) *Imagine me and you,*
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhMzZ_KCp_E

Primrose: *I do I think about you day and night, it's only right.*

Hazel: *To think about the doe you love and hold her tight So happy together. If I should call for you and call you fine.*

Primrose: *And you say you belong to me and ease my mind. Imagine how the world could be, so very fine. So happy together.*

H&P: *I can't see me lovin' nobody but you, for all my life. When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue for all my life.*

(Then Fiver and Blackavar start dancing.)

Fiver: *Me and you and you and me.*

Blackavar: *No matter how they toss the odds it has to be.*

Fiver: *The only one for me is you,*

Blackavar: *and you for me.*

B&F: *So happy together. I can't see me lovin' nobody but you for all my life. When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue For all my life.*

(Then Kehaar and Gluk start dancing.)

Kehaar: *Me and you and you and me.*

Gluk: *No matter how they toss the odds it has to be.*

Kehaar: *The only one for me is you.*

Gluk: *And you for me.*

K&G: *So happy together. Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba.*

(Then all of the couples start dancing.)

Hazel: *Me and you.*

Primrose: *and you and me.*

Fiver: *No matter how they toss the odds,*

Blackavar: *It has to be.*

Kehaar: *The only one for me is you,*

Gluk: *and you for me.*

All couples: *So happy together. So happy together. How is the weather? So happy together. We're happy together. So happy together. Happy together. So happy together. So happy together, ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba*

(Then the Owsla including Scree, Hannah, and junior Owsla come in. Kehaar goes up to Scree.)

Kehaar: Ah, how is my daughter today?

Scree: Scree okay father.

Kehaar: That good to know.

Hazel: Captain Bigwig? (Bigwig looks at Hazel.) How is the Owsla?

Bigwig: Alright as usual.

Hazel: And do we have many rocks?

Bigwig: Last time I checked we had plenty.

Hazel: Good that's very reassuring.

(Silverweed comes in.)

Silverweed: Hey everyone, I just got back from the river and I now have magic that will help us defeat General Woundwort. But I was sworn to use it as a last resort for a dark hour. Also something will happen to me if I use this magic.

Hazel: What will happen to you?

Silverweed: I can't tell you, you'll have to see for yourself.

(Fiver suddenly goes into a trance.)

Hazel: What is it little brother? What do you see?

Fiver: I see... General Woundwort. He's gathering an Owsla to destroy us. It's war. And he will attack at... night. Before Frith rises.

Hazel: Everyone, make sure your battle plans are made. (Hannah tries desperately to get Hazel's attention waving her paws around.) We must all be ready for the final battle. May we all fight until our last dying breath. Bigwig, take the Owsla and train them. They need their exercise.

Hannah: What about me? What about me?

Hazel: You'll have a place here in the Owsla. You sound depressed Hannah.

Hannah: I just feel sort of left out. Like I'm not wanted.

Bigwig: You don't understand Hannah. *It's (Then Family from Dreamgirls plays.) more than you. It is more than me, no matter what we are, we are a family.*
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r_7gAPTuNg

Hazel: *This dream is for all of us this one can be real and you can't stop us now because of how we feel.*

Fiver: *It's more than you. It is more than me. Whatever dreams we have, they're for the family.*

Blackavar: *We're not alone anymore now there are others there. And that dreams' big enough for all of us to share.*

Spartina: *So don't think you're going, you're not going anywhere. You're staying and taking your share.*

Blackberry: *And if you get afraid again, we'll be there*

Warren (Except Hannah): *We are a family like a giant tree branching out towards the sky, we are a family we are so much more than just you and I, we are a family like a giant tree*

Primrose: *Growing stronger growing wiser.*

Warren (Except Hannah): *We are growing free we need you. We are a family.*

Hannah: All right. But let me be on Kehaar or Gluk or even Scree in the battlefield that way I can throw acorns at the oncoming Darkhaveners.

Hazel: Anything you say.

(They all go into the burrow. Then the scene changes into the edge of a grungy factory where a warren of about thirty big rabbits are hanging around the place. It is noon. And Captain Vervain enters.)

Vervain: All rise for General Woundwort.

(Then all the rabbits except for Vervain go into three rows of ten. Then General Woundwort enters and goes up to a makeshift podium and addresses the warren.)

Woundwort: Thank you Captain Vervain. Fellow comrades, I would like to talk about the warrens I conquered. First my old warren Efrafa. I brought up the best warren until the Watership warren destroyed it. Then there was Redstone, a gullible warren whom I led to their death. But there was one warren who was equal to mine. The Warren of the Shining Wire. I met with the leader and he gave me his prized possession, Silverweed. But then the Watership warren took him from me! The Watership warren stand for life and peace but I stand for war and death. And the Watership warren must be destroyed like a terrible sickness! (Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These by Marilyn Manson plays.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHRyMcH6WMM
Now war, death, murder, pain, let me put these words in this sense. *Sweet dreams are made of these. Who am I to disagree? Travel the land and the seven lakes. Everybody's looking for something. Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to get used by you. Some of them want to abuse you. Some of them deserve to be abused. Sweet dreams are made of these. Who am I to disagree? Travel the land and the seven lakes. Everybody's looking for something. Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to get used by you. Some of them want to abuse you. Some of them deserve to be abused! I want to use them and abuse them I want to tear them from the inside. Hold your heads up, move along. Keep your heads up, move along. Hold your heads up, move along. Keep your heads up, move along. Hold your heads up, move along. Keep your heads up, Move along. Move along!*

(The Owsla go over to Vervain and get a mark which is basically a scratch on the body. Except the testicles.)

Vervain: *Sweet dreams are made of these, who am I to disagree. Travel the land and the seven lakes, everybody's looking for something.*

Woundwort: *Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to get used by you. Some of them want to abuse you. Some of them deserve to be abused.*

Warren: (While headbanging.) *We're gonna use them, and abuse them, we're gonna tear from inside. Gonna use them and abuse them, we're gonna tear them from inside.*

Woundwort: So I have decided we should attack before Frith rises in the morning. DEATH TO THE WATERSHIP WARREN!

(They all cheer. They head off to their dens. The scene changes again to Watership. It is afternoon. Blackberry comes in looking depressed. Kehaar comes in and sees her.)

Kehaar: What wrong Blackberry?

Blackberry: Do you remember Campion, Kehaar?

Kehaar: Campion?

Blackberry: Yes Campion, the buck who used to be on Woundwort's side but then switched over to our side.

Kehaar: Oh, yes, why, you thinking of him?

Blackberry: Yes. If only the rocks didn't fall on him when we were fighting Woundwort. Otherwise he would be with me.

Kehaar: Do not worry Blackberry. (Something to Remember by Madonna plays.) There plenty of bucks out there. You find another one.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3l92pzIJSM
Blackberry: Wouldn't want another one. (Kehaar takes to the sky and leaves.)*Seems I've played the game for much too long. I let my love go by and I never got to sing my songs for you. I had all my plans laid all on you. Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose. In the game of love you pay your dues. Say that happiness cannot be measured, And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures. What a joke. I was not your doe, I was not your friend, but you gave me something to remember. No other buck said love yourself. Nobody else can. We weren't meant to be, At least not in this lifetime, But you gave me something to remember. I hear you still say, "Love yourself.". I had all my plans laid all on you. Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose. In the game of love I've paid my dues. Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sky, Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather. What a shame, who's to blame? (Looks to the sky.) I was not your doe, I was not your friend, But you gave me something to remember. No other buck said, "Love yourself". Nobody else can. We weren't meant to be, at least not in this lifetime, but you gave me something to remember. I hear you still say, "Love yourself".*

(The scene changes to the edge of a cliff. Frith is setting. Pipkin is walking along when suddenly he sees Campion near the edge. Campion is scarred on the left part of his face making him look Phantom of the Opera-ish and has one ear partly torn off. Pipkin stares at him.)

Pipkin: Campion you're alive!

Campion: Go away Pipkin! Don't look at me!

Pipkin: Why? I see nothing wrong with you. Other than a few scars here and there.

Campion: The Black Rabbit of Inle touched me! He's driving me mad. I want to end it all!

Pipkin: End it... all? No you can't! We miss you. Blackberry misses you. You're still one of us. There's this song that the others used to sing to me when I was little. (Your Heart Will Lead You Home by Kenny Loggins plays.) It goes like this...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVdxgdIToZQ
 *Bright days and starry nights and lazy afternoons.  You count the clouds in the sky and hum little tunes.  But somehow right before your eyes, Lord Frith fades away, everything is different and everything has changed, and if you feel you lost and on your own, and far from home. You're never alone you know. Just think of your friends.  The ones who care They all will be waiting there, with love to share. And your heart will lead you home. Funny how a memory can take you back in time. To places and embraces that you thought you'd left behind. Trying to remind you that you're not the only one. That no-one is an island when all is said and done.*

(Then a rabbit appears in the sky.)

El-ahrah: Campion. (Campion looks up.) Don't be frightened Campion.

Campion: Who are you rabbit in the sky?

El-ahrah: I am El-ahrah

(Campion bows down to El-ahrah.)

Campion: Oh father of all rabbits, what do you want of me?

El-ahrah: I want you to go back to Watership Down.

Campion: I can't go back. Not with the black rabbit of Inle haunting me.

El-ahrah: You must. Only the one who loves you can save you.

Campion: Who is it?

El-ahrah: It's someone close to you.

Campion: Blackberry?

El-ahrah: Yes. But before you go listen to the wise young buck's words.

Pipkin: *If you feel you lost. And on your own, and far from home. You're never alone you know. Just think of your friends. The ones who care. They all will be waiting there. With love to share. And your heart will lead you home.*

(El-ahrah slowly disappears.)

El-ahrah: Go now.

(Campion hugs Pipkin.)

Campion: You're right Pipkin I should go back. Is Blackberry all right? Are the others okay?

Pipkin: Their getting ready for war against Darkhaven, a warren led by General Woundwort.

Campion: Woundwort's still alive? I'll have to go back and fight. Show me the way.

(They head off.)

Pipkin: *There'll come a day when you're losing your way. And you won't know where you belong.*

Campion: *They say that home is where the heart is.*

Pipkin: *That's right. So follow your heart and know that you can't go wrong. If you feel you lost and on your own, and far from home. You're never alone you know. Just think of your friends. The ones who care. They all will be waiting there, with love to share. And your heart will lead you ...*

Campion: *If I feel*

C&P: *Lost and on my/your own and far from home, I'm/Your never alone you know.*

C: *I'll*

C&P: *Just think of my/your friends, the ones who care. They all will be waiting there with love to share.*

C: *And my heart will lead me, where I belong. I know my heart will lead me...*

C&P: *Home*

(Campion and Pipkin arrive at the warren Blackberry is there alone. Pipkin goes inside while Blackberry looks behind her and sees Campion at one point then looks away and then looks back. She turns around and goes over to him and embraces him.)

Blackberry: Is this a dream?

Campion: No this isn't a dream. Blackberry, I survived but the Black Rabbit of Inle was haunting me, but Pipkin and El-ahrah convinced me to come back. Now I know for sure. I love you.

Blackberry: You do?

Campion: Yes. Blackberry, I heard that Woundwort is raising an Owsla to attack us. Is it true?

Blackberry: It is. This may be the last time we see each other.

Campion: Don't say that Blackberry. I won't let that happen. (All I Ask Of You from Phantom Of The Opera plays.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnptZC341nM
*No more talk of darkness, forget these wide-eyed fears. I'm here, nothing can harm you - my words will warm and calm you. Let me be your freedom let daylight dry your tears. I'm here, with you, beside you, to guard you and to guide you . . .*

Blackberry: *Say you love me every waking moment, turn my head with talk of summertime . . . say you need me with you, now and always . . . promise me that all you say is true - that's all I ask of you . . .*

Campion: *Let me be your shelter, let me be your light. You're safe, no-one will find you, your fears are far behind you . . .*

Blackberry: *All I want is freedom, a world with no more night . . . and you always beside me to hold me and to hide me . . .*

Campion: *Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime . . . Let me lead you from your solitude . . . Say you need me with you here, beside you . . . anywhere you go, let me go too.  Blackberry that's all I ask of you.*

Blackberry: *Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime . . . say the word and I will follow you . . .*

Both: *Share each day with me, each night, each morning . . .*

Blackberry: *Say you love me.*

Campion: *You know I do.*

Both: *Love me - that's all I ask of you . .. (They touch noses. At one point Campion embraces her and spins her around.) Anywhere you go let me go too . . . Love me - that's all I ask of you.*

Hazel: (From inside the burrows.) Blackberry who's out there with you?

Campion: Lets go inside. They'll be surprised to see me.

Blackberry: *Campion I love you*

(Campion smiles. They go inside. They enter the main room. Everyone is surprised to see Campion.)

Hazel: Campion you're alive!

Campion: Yes thank Frith I survived the rocks. I've decided to help all of you in the battlefield.

Hazel: How do you know about that?

Campion: Pipkin told me everything.

Hazel: Well now that we are all here, let me say a few words before we all get some rest. (Do You Hear The People Sing? from Les Miserables plays.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUKyckShuQA
*Do you hear the people sing? Singing the songs of angry animals. It is the music of the people, who will not go down at all.  When the beating of your heart, echoes the beating of a trunk, there is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.*

Fiver: *Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me? Beyond this bloody war is there a world we long to see?*

Blackavar: *Then join in the fight that will give you the right to be free!*

Bigwig: *Do you hear the people sing.  Singing the songs of angry animals.  It is the music of the people who will not go down at all.  When the beating of your heart, echoes the beating of a trunk, there is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.*

Campion: *Will you give all you can give, so that our freedom may go on. Some will fall and some will live.  Will you stand up to take your own? The blood of the martyrs will water the meadows of the Downs!*

All: *Do you hear the people sing.  Singing the songs of angry animals.  It is the music of the people who will not go down at all.  When the beating of your heart, echoes the beating of a trunk, there is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.*

(Later as some of them are asleep. General Woundwort, Vervain, and their warren are far outside the burrows. They all start scratching the ground in a rhythmic fashion. Hazel and the others are now awake.)

Vervain: Watership, come out and play! (Voice gets higher.) Watership, come out and play! (Voice gets higher again.) Watership come out and play! (Voice gets higher and shrilly.) Watership, come out and play! (Voice rises to a scratchy falsetto.) WATERSHIP, COME OUT AND PLAY!

(Hazel looks back at his warren who have rocks in front of them.)

Hazel: Everybody ready?

Warren(except Hazel): Yeah!

Hazel: Then lets go!

(Then all the rabbits except for Silverweed push out rocks which roll out of the burrows and run over a few Darkhaven rabbits. Then Kehaar, Gluk, Scree and Hannah who is on Kehaar, drop rocks onto the rabbits. Then all the Watership rabbits come out. Bigwig goes over to Spartina.)

Bigwig: Spartina, if we ever survive this, I just want you to know that-

(Before he can say anything else, Hazel lets out a battle cry and they charge toward the Darkhaveners. And the battle is a bit like a cross between a gang fight and a real battle sequence. Nearly everyone is biting, clawing, hitting and kicking but then the Darkhaven rabbits have all the Watership rabbits pinned down. Silverweed sees everything and starts rubbing his paws together.)

Silverweed: I call upon the winds to scream, the sky to crack, and the earth to quake and give myself up for my friends' sake.

(Then all the Darkhaven rabbits raise their paws as if to slash their throats.)

Woundwort: Now you shall all DIE!

(Then from out of nowhere a big dark shadowy rabbit with red eyes looms above all the Darkhaven rabbits.)

Black Rabbit of Inle: Nobody invokes my name for their own dark ends. Awaiting your command Silverweed.

Silverweed: (Screaming) TAKE THEM!

(Then the Black Rabbit pulls the Darkhaven rabbits including Woundwort and Vervain and takes them to the land beyond living. Then the song A Brand New Day from The Wiz plays as the Watership rabbits get up and look around and see Frith rising.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b26ASkRH0o4

Blackberry: (Muttering under breath.) It's over. (Shouting.) It's Over!

(They all cheer and start dancing.)

Hazel: *Everybody look around. 'Cause there's a reason to rejoice you see.*

Warren: *Everybody come out. And let's commence to singing joyfully.*

Fiver: *Everybody look up. And feel the hope that we've been waiting for.*

Warren: *Everybody's glad. Because our silent fear and dread is gone.*

Females: *Freedom, you see, has got our hearts singing so joyfully.*

Males: *Just look about. You owe it to yourself to check it out.*

Warren: *Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day?*

Bigwig: *Everybody be glad. Because Lord frith is shining just for us.*

Blackberry: *Everybody wake up into the morning into happiness.*

Blackavar: *Hello world. It's like a different way of living now.*

Kehaar: *And thank you world always knew that we'd be free somehow.*

Warren: *In harmony. And show the world that we've got liberty. It's such a change For us to live so independently. Freedom, you see, has got our hearts singing so joyfully. Just look about. You owe it to yourself to check it out. Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day?*

Blackberry: *Everybody be glad. Because Lord Frith is shining just for us. Everybody wake up into the morning into happiness.  Hello world. It's like a different way of living now.*

Campion: *Thank you world.  We always knew that we'd be free somehow.*

Warren: *In harmony. And show the world that we've got liberty. It's such a change for us to live so independently.  Freedom, you see, has got our hearts singing so joyfully.  Just look about.  You owe it to yourself to check it out.  Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day? Can't you feel a brand new day?*

Bigwig: Hey, wait a minute, where's Silverweed and Spartina?

Hannah: (From behind the tree.) Oi Hazel-rah, I think you should come see this.

(They all go behind the tree and see that Silverweed has become an old rabbit.)

Silverweed: This is what I was telling you about. I would grow old if I used the magic.

Blackberry: Bigwig!

(Bigwig goes over to a wounded Spartina.)

Bigwig: What is it Blackberry? (Looks at Spartina.) Spartina!

Spartina: Bigwig, I'm dying.

Bigwig: No you can't die, I never got the chance to confess to you. I... love you. I won't let the Black Rabbit of Inle take you.

Spartina: It's too late. He's already here.

Bigwig: Before you take her, I want to sing one last song for her. (Will You Be There by Michael Jackson plays.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRqYVFr7sL4
*Hold Me.  Like a river of love, and I will then say to you, you were my friend.  Carry me like you were my brother, love me like a lover would you be there? Spartina, tell me will you hold me? When wrong will you scold me? When lost will you find me? But they told me a buck should be faithful, and walk when not able and fight till, the end but I'm only rabbit. Everyone's taking control of me seems like the world's got a role for me.  I'm so confused will you show to me, you'll be there for me and care enough to bear me?*

Owsla (except Bigwig): *Hold him.*

Bigwig: *Show me.*

O(EX B): *Lay your head lowly.*

B: *Told me.*

O(EX B): *Softly then boldly.*

B: *Yeah.*

O(EX B): *Carry him there.*

B: *I'm only rabbit.*

O(EX B) *Lead him.*

B: *Hold me.*

O(EX B): *Love him and feed him.*

B: *Yeah, yeah.*

O(EX B): *Touch him and free him.*

B: *Yeah.*

O(EX B): *He will feel blessed.*

B: *I'm only rabbit.*

O(EX B): *Carry.*

B: *Carry.*

O(EX B): *Carry him boldly.*

B: *Carry yeah.*

O(EX B): *Lift him up slowly.*

B: *Yeah.*

O(EX B): *Carry him there.*

B: *I'm only rabbit.*

O(EX B): *Save him.*

B: *Save me.*

O(EX B): *Heal him and bathe him.*

B: *Lift me up, lift me up.*

O(EX B): *Softly you say to him, he will be there.*

B: *I will be there.*

O(EX B): *Lift him.*

B: *I'm gonna care.*

O(EX B): *Lift him up slowly carry him boldly.*

B: *Yeah*

O(EX B): *Show him you care.*

B: *Show me you care.*

O(EX B): *Hold him.*

B: *Whoooo!*

O(EX B): *Lay your head lowly.*

B: *I get lonely sometimes.*

O(EX B): *Softly then boldly.*

B: *I get lonely.*

O(EX B): *Carry him there.*

B: *Yeah, yeah, carry me there, yeah, yeah. yeah.*

(Then Spartina gasps for air. Hazel goes up to her.)

Hazel: What happened to you?

Spartina: The Black Rabbit of Inle started to take me, but then he looked back and said to me, "That song has moved me so much, that I've decided to let you go. Be with him for his love has healed you." Then he brought me back to my body. And now I can say it, I love you too Bigwig.

(Bigwig and Spartina touch noses.)

Fiver: By Frith, the Black Rabbit of Inle was right! You see there was one thing that Woundwort could never understand.

Warren Except Fiver: What's that?

Fiver: Love heals. Even in our darkest hour.

Blackavar: In our deepest despair.

Sparina: Will you still care? Will you be there Bigwig?

Bigwig: I will my love. In our trials.

Hazel: And our tribulations.

Primrose: Through our doubts.

Blackberry: And frustrations.

Campion: In our violence.

Kehaar: In our turbulence.

Gluk: Through our fear.

Pipkin: And our confessions.

Silverweed: In our anguish.

Scree: And our pain.

Hannah: Through our joy and our sorrow.

Dandelion: In the promise of another tomorrow.

Hawkbit: We'll never let each other part.

Warren: For we're always in each others hearts.

Hazel: *Is it a kind of a dream?*

Fiver: *Floating out on the tide.*

Woundwort: *Following the river of death downstream.*

Vervain: *Oh is it a dream?*

Pipkin: *There's a fog along the horizon.*

Kehaar: *A strange glow in the sky.*

Primrose: *And nobody seems to know where it goes.*

Blackavar: *And what does it mean?*

Gluk: *Oh is it a dream?*

Company: *Bright eyes, burning like fire.  Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?  How can the light that burned so brightly, suddenly burn so pale? Bright eyes.*

Spartina: *Is it a kind of a shadow?*

Bigwig: *Reaching into the night.*

Silverweed: *Wandering over the hills unseen.*

Campion: *Oh is it a dream?*

Blackberry: *There's a high wind in the trees.*

Hannah: *A cold sound in the air.*

Dandelion: *And nobody ever knows where you go.*

Hawkbit: *And where do you start?*

Scree: *Oh into the dark.*

Company: *Bright eyes, burning like fire.  Bright eyes, how can you close and fail? How can the light that burned so brightly, suddenly burn so pale? Bright eyes.  Bright eyes, burning like fire.  Bright eyes, how can you close and fail? How can the light that burned so brightly, suddenly burn so pale? Bright eyes Bright Eyes burning like fire.  Bright eyes, how can they close and fail? How can the light that burns so brightly suddenly burn so pale? Bright eyes.  Bright eyes.*

Thank you to each and every one of you! Remember that your words mean so much.

It was a really interesting day, but overall great. I won't bore you with details! :D

@Vesper: That's a thoughtful, nicely written musical. Thank you for doing that for me.
