Hello WSD fans

Hello community,

I'm not one for introductions, but I've been ghosting around this forum for a few weeks now and I figured I'd better make an account.

As one could easily conclude, I'm a big Watership Down fan: I've read the book, seen most of the movie and the entire TV series. I'm very rarely enchanted by anything I read, and I'm mostly a cynic (hence the username) towards books/shows I watch. However, Watership Down seemed to pierce through my harsh judgement and really meant something in a vast sea of superficial nonsense.

Anyway, this seems like a nice community and I'm not new to forums, so... here I am.

Hello and welcome to our warren :)!

And ain't that true? When I first watched the series, I thought that it would be ideal for making fun of, due to the fact that... "oh, look at the cute rabbits, so cute". But then, of course, the story kicked in and I was delighted by the experience. The same happened to me when I read the book :)

Have a terrific time in here :)!

Welcome to this great forum!  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Wow, you sound exactly like me. Cynical, critical, and analytical. Also reclusive. I like it. Welcome to Fiver's Honeycomb.

Again, thanks for the kind welcome!

So, I have begun posting elsewhere in the forum/warren, hopefully sharing whatever insight I possess when the mood strikes me.

I still need an avatar though, and I can't for the life of me decide on it. Oh well, that's my problem. :)

EDIT: Avatar problem solved. Thanks Silverweed's Claws for the offer :)
