So, some of you already knows about this strange Foxbrow, who does nothing else but playing your games in the playground. And you wonder: "Who is it?", "Why is it here?", "What it wants?"

Well, of course I can tell you, but that won't be any fun. So if you really want to know, you have to guess (since I promised this to Myrkin).

I guess you all think I am here for I'm a fan of Watership Down. Yeah, that's correct. And now it's your turn: What do you think I like the most - the book, the movie or the series?

First one to guess it right will... win a special prize.
Go!

I've yet to find a WSD fan that doesn't enjoy the book over any media adaptation. ;)  Its safe to say you're probably the same so I guess that too!

Oh yeah, this one was pretty easy.
And hi to you two too.

So Thlayli, you guessed it right. And you win... the right to ask next question. What do you want to know about me?

For such simple question I have a complicated answer. Except the books I have none of the Watership Down merchandise. I'm not even sure if it is possible to buy anything else but the movie and series DVDs over here. Even the books are quite rare for all editions are already sold out.

This can be a trigger for another guessing, like "Where am I from?".
But do you even want to know?

Now I do wonder how you figured that out. Either a lucky guess or looking at my e-mail ending I think.

Anyway, you are right. So is there anything more you'd like to know about me?

Actually, I looked at your forum profile, then at IP address you used during registration. At that moment I thought: "I wonder if there is a website, that can tell me what country you are by using IP address." And hey! There is. :)

Hmm... I guess it wouldn't have worked, if you had used some proxy to hide your real IP address.

Anyway... Who are your favourite characters from the book? :)

Why using proxy IP, I have nothing to hide... only a lot of things to not to say.

And I have so expected this question. So I will let others to guess it.
Did you all hear that? You are now guessing my favorite characters from the book. Let's say I've picked three of them, so you can guess up to three characters if you still want to play this game.

Now I'm really excited if anyone is going to hit the right ones.

She certainly is a remarkable character, but there are still some I like more.

Do you think anyone else is going to join this guessing game?

Is Hazel your favourite rabbit?
