I have been thinking about these two for a while, since Acacia's post in another thread.

What do you think of the relationship between Hawkbit and Dandelion? :hawkbit3 Are they great friends, or could they be in a romantic relationship? :dandelion And how would Clover fit in with all this? :clover

hawkbit and dandelion would be such a good ship. their interactions in the show are so interesting - they compliment each other very well. tbh i like to think that clovers like "lmao finally" :D

im also guilty of writing more than one fanfiction on this ship and im so glad somebody else has mentioned it!

I was going to make a post about the only way Hawkbit and Dandelion could be more gay, but I honestly can't think of a way that they could be more gay. They're just that gay. And it's wonderful.

:silverweed3 The possibility is there indeed. :D
 "Me, in love with Dandelion, please."  :hawkbit2
 :silverweed3 "Then how come you actually smell like dandelion flowers."
 :hawkbit "Vesper, you know how tiring work in the Owlsa is, really. Luckily, I was able to find a nice flower patch and rested there along with Dandelion as we snuggled and...!!!"
 :silverweed "xD I knew it, dear. The potential is there. I bet you nuzzled him. You did, didn't you?" ;D
 :hawkbit2 *Hops angrily away as he blushed furiously*

 :clover "I better keep my eye on those two." :/

HAHAHAHA good one vesper  :hannah4

Certainly in the series never approach the subject, although they really are good friends. They demonstrate from beginning to end. Above all, it is more noticeable in the chapter, that Hawkbit saves Dandelion from a puddle with water.
I always followed his adventures closely.  :gilia

I love Watership Down!

Yeah they're gay no doubt about it XD I'm also interested in reading those fanfics, Florapaw. Mind if I read them as well?

Aaah that picture, so beautiful! It always makes me smile seeing my friends stuff such as that. Seriously love how she did it.
Too much art in paws

I will be looking forward to reading these fanfics Flora :)

Clover/Hawkbit seems really different from any other couple in the series.  Hazel/Primrose, Bigwig/Spartina, Blackberry/Campion, Gluck/Kehaar, they all fall in love at first sight.  Hickory and Marigold are already mates at the time they are introduced.

Clover and Hawkbit, meanwhile, live at Watership Down for a long time and only become romantically involved at the very end of the series.  It almost seems like this was a pitiful attempt at showing that Hawkbit is totally NOT gay.  He has a female love interest, see?  He therefore can't be gay :sarcasm

I think Dandelion/Hawkbit makes much more sense.

I think I already wrote this elsewhere, that I'm not really one for shipping and all that.

However, I think this one could potentially work. I never thought of it from watching the series, though thinking about it here it could be a plausible idea. :) They're pretty different - the grumpier and the more laid-back - yet stick together, reminding me somewhat of Bert and Ernie, and of course people like to say that they're a gay couple. :p
Here lies a signature that has little point.
