Interesting suggestions :) I've written a Blackberry/Primrose fanfic; I should probably post it at some point.

Fiver/Silverweed is perfect, the relationship between these two is awesome, it's really sad how Silverweed had to die so soon, why :(

Hazel/Bigwig also seems to be very popular.

Yep, I'm a fan. The pairings I like from whatever shows/books/movies change all the time since the first draft in my mind about an awkward first conversation is great, then I just can't recapture that magic in subsequent dreams. But a couple pairings from WD have survived such that I'm still fond of them:

* Hawkbit+Dandelion (my favorite since everything about Hawkbit is awesome and cute, so any way it goes would be entertaining. Hmm, Dandelion's a good storyteller, maybe he knows of a bedtime story they could both go to sleep to)
* Fiver+Silverweed (they'd probably both be nervous, and dedicated to taking things slow from friendship to relationship to make sure it goes right)

And a couple others from WD I'm gradually warming up to:

* Hazel+Bigwig (I think it'd be difficult, since I imagine Bigwig feels the warren will get attacked if he stops watching for 10 seconds, and they'd probably want to keep things professional given their statuses as Chief Rabbit and security officer. But they do respect each other and they're probably the two most stressed-out rabbits. And they do look cute in fanart showing them sleeping together)
* Vervain+Woundwort (because there's that fortunate moment in one episode where the angle almost looks like Vervain's head is resting on Woundwort's shoulder)

Folgrimeo, I agree with you in almost everyone, only that I would change to Hazel x Campion. But I definitely could not go to Wounwort with anyone.

Hackbit x Dandelion is one that I would like to develop a day x3

Why have I not seen this screenshot before? This is marvellous. Good content, yes. :vervain :woundwort3

And fanart of pairings literally sleeping together is my absolute favourite kind. I can't get enough of it. It's just so peaceful and cute; I can't help but love it.

Ah yes and apparently I now also kinda sorta ship Woundwort and Vervain in the miniseries which is a bit unexpected actually but maybe not so much. The miniseries is so vague on them so lots of blanks for my mind to gratefully fill in.

in this house we love and support bluebell/blackberry

I rewatched the miniseries recently and honestly? Bluebell and Blackberry are almost more important than other ship I can possibly think of right now. Every other relationship, whether it be platonic or otherwise, was really hit or miss in the miniseries except for our good sis Bluebell/Blackberry. Absolutely amazing, 10/10.

Bluebell and Blackberry are really perfect for each other.  Eventually Blackberry will accept Bluebell's kisses and even kiss back :bluebell :blackberryminiseries
