Black Rabbit ship

Something I randomly thought about while taking a shower...

What if the Black Rabbit of Inlé had a mate and kittens? :inle-movie

honestly the thought of the black rabbit having a mate and kittens is so weird i can't even describe how i feel about it,,,, but at the same time, damn that's so wholesome.

death in love with a pretty lady rabbit? absolutely amazing. 10/10. or would she be a spiritual being like him? death mating with some kind of life-giving figure would be super sweet.

That's a whole new level of shower thoughts, Chipster xd

Interesting idea though. Even death itself deserves love!
(I have a weird thought of Brofi and Prince Rainbow together but that honestly has no real reason)

Life born from death, then? Aww imagine if the kittens follow their daddy and start leading rabbits into the afterlife too. Being brought to the afterlife by a cute little kitten!

Somehow I m thinking that Black Rabbit would be this really nice father to the kittens. Somewhat Sound Of Musical Maria level nice person.. While looking like death itself. It breaks my heart.  :inle-series I somehow imagine him trying to be a good daddy while everyone is scared of him. Like in the books he was super friendly and nice with bit creepy spice up.

Rather, I think that the black rabbit of Inle, before being death, was a mortal rabbit. The prince of rabbits el-ahrairah, he is the current black rabbit of Inle. He had many wives and children, but I do not think that he can currently have that responsibility.    :inle-series

I think of the Black Rabbit of Inle as a spirit with no corporeal form who has a duty to serve and wouldn't be ingaged in "activities" or "pleasures" of the living such as eating or raising a family.
Once his/her duty is served though, maybe they ascend to a different stage of more heaven-like afterlife wherein they can do whatever they want.

I can definitely imagine the black rabbit having had a family in the past. They would need experience with love felt by the living in order to be the bringer of death in a compassionate way.

I always thought that the Black Rabbit of Inle to be always a loner for he wouldn't want to bring death upon his family.

If he did would it be with a living rabbit or another rabbit spirit like figure?
