Oh, ugh, that's hard, I'd have to say Dandelion and Blackberry(book). Dunno why. Blackberry isn't even in my top five. Though Dandelion's at the top. I suppose because Blackberry's a clever rabbit. Wait, if he's so clever, he'd escape the hutch! Ugh, I'll have to think some more.

Hazel because he's sensible and pretty cool and Blackberry because he is a good story teller.

This is probably a time I would not choose Hawkbit of the tv series fame.....wouldn't be able to stand a bunny that mouths off and won't heed your calls. :p

I'd probably go with Silver (from the book).  Silver is strong, but not know as overly brash or worrisome.  I'd think he'd be plenty comfortable.

Well... While it's so tempting to have two rabbit characters from Watership Down, I don't think I would really want to take them. Or, to be precise, they wouldn't want that. I mean, most of those rabbits have their own lives, their own friends, family and the place they can call home. What can I offer, that would be worthy of losing what they already have? Maybe this could happen with the ones who have nowhere to go in the wild, but others would probably be more happy to stay where they are.


I'm sorry if I've taken this question too seriously. :)

I don't know if I'd like to own them, as that would be plain awkward :p I'd really like to be all their friends though!

Definately Bigwig.....although he might be a bit hard to manage!!!! I actually own five rabbits myself and one reminds me very much of Bigwig! They don't have WSD names though but I really want another so I can name it a cross between WSD and Redwall hare names!!!!

Depends on if they could talk or not. :3 Actually, I don't know, all the rabbits compliment one another so magnificently that having just two without the rest would totally be lacking in everything. You couldn't have Hawkbit without Dandelion to be an asshole with him... and you couldn't have those two without Bigwig to get extremely annoyed with them... and you couldn't have Bigwig without Hazel to keep him to his senses... and you couldn't have Hazel without Fiver to help him see the obvious...
AND IF YOU'RE GONNA HAVE THOSE GUYS YOU MAY AS WELL BRING PIPKIN TOO :|

Lol, so to answer your question, I don't think I could do with just two.
And if they can't talk it'd essentially be just having rabbits. xP

Based upon the series, I would take

  • Fiver (OK, it could be a little problematic... "Don't eat this deep-frozen pizza. I see, it will kill you some day!")
  • Blackberry (Because I liked her character very much in the series. She seems so sensitive and even so strong.)

Edit: With Fiver, it will sound like

Buckthorn and probably... Hyzenthay. I already have a buck named Buckthorn xD He was originally going to be Bigwig, but his nature was just to gentle for that.
