The younger generation
« on: June 09, 2020, 01:30:41 AM »
It seems like the entire second generation of WSD rabbits are pretty shifty lot when it comes to their loyalties.

First Flyairth, then that youngster, than this Efrafan.

Well, there was that whole Stonecrop fiasco.  Sandword also used to be a big jerk.

After the entire first generation has died, the warren may go in an entirely different direction...

I've seen a few fanfics that did exactly that. Although, most of those were never finished :/

Hm...that's a shame.

Perhaps they were silenced by someone, or some rabbit.

This poor doe...sure she's not as bad as we think she is?  No doe could be THAT bad? Maybe I should think about it.  But

It's possible.  Maybe the true killer is simply framing Flyairth.

There is one rabbit with particularly outspoken ire against Flyairth :bigwig And given his performance at Efrafa, he can have quite the scheming nature...

As much as Flyairth needs to hijack every conversation, I do still think it's interesting how different the next generation is.  Maybe its because the new generation we get to see are all youngsters, but then again a rabbit is only a youngster for roughly four days.  The typical rebellious teenager trope seemed to be in full swing for a lot of them, I would have appreciated if there was a bit more variety.

In fact, it seems like the rebellion bug spreads to the Sandleforders too, especially by the time Stonecrop shows up.  It seems that the kittens who were had to create a permanent warren will be the reason it goes up in flames!  :frith
