El-ahrairah ship??
« on: June 19, 2018, 10:49:46 PM »
We are told in the story when we are first introduced to him, that El-ahrairah “had many wives”. Has anyone thought of shipping him with a particular favorite doe?

(I came up with such a character for the purpose, whom I named Thrymegil. Never got much further in developing her, but I think of her as clever and wise, and a master storyteller.)

I can safely say that I've never shipped El-ahrairah with anyone other than Rabscuttle.

But! I guess that he'd have a handful of favourite does. Tbh, I don't think he's the kind to care that much about them actually, but I do really like your oc :)

TFWD mentions such a doe, in the story of King Fur-Rocious.  Her name is Nur-Rama.  She doesn't really have an important role...

I have to agree with Flora about El-ahrairah/Rabscuttle being a great ship though :el-ahrairah :rabscuttle

The funny thing is that it could be true, because El-ahrairah himself says that Rabscuttle is his partner or partner. But for pranks and deceptions. I remember that El-ahrairah was angry because they took him away from his friend in "the king's lettuce", and they put another stinking rabbit that was a spy. It could be gay history never told.   :hannah4  just say        :blink :rolleyes :unsure :rabscuttle     :bolt
I love Watership Down!

I haven't read the book in a while Acacia, so I can't deny not confirm what you're saying, but yeah. There's a lot of subtext between those two :D
