Salutations and Whatnot
« on: August 27, 2014, 12:14:57 AM »
Hello there, members of Fiver's Honeycomb. I used to be a member on an old Watership Down forum under this same name, but that forum was essentially long dead when I joined. I finally found a small community of fans on tumblr, but the content comes slow and it's kind of depressing. So, I was watching Season 3 of the Watership Down series on youtube, where I saw someone linked to this website! I clicked on it, expecting to see a dead website filled with old roleplays and whatnot, when behold: It appears to be semi-active!

I know it's hard to keep old fandoms alive (even Warriors is beginning to die out of the scene), but the fact that some people still care really excited me and warmed my heart! Even if the activity on this site is slow, quiet, or dies off in a few months (I'm not implying it will, by the way), I'm still happy to be here now.

Now, time to go stalk some boards and see what you guys do for fun around here!

Welcome to the Honeycomb, I hope you find it far from dead and dying. Have fun, play some games, laugh at the antics of our members and Owsla...who are great by the way!
I've missed this place.
Check out my Deviant Art page. But only if you feel like it.

Hello CaptainCampion. What did Dandelion say during one of the owsla training sessions? "We're slow, but we're steady" :D

And Fiver then: "No, I think we're just slow" :D
Of course not, we're not slow. Maybe sometimes a little quiet, but definitely far away from dying off. :)

I hope you like it here in the Honeycomb  :fiver

Have fun!

Welcome, CaptainCampion. It's always a happy event to see a new member join our little warren here. As you said, our forum is semi-active, but it's far from dying and hopefully it will stay that way by attracting more people. ;)

Have fun!

The community can be found by simply visiting /tagged/watership-down. The blog owsalfa is one of the few that produces some interesting content, really. My blog, captainbigwig (not necessarily always safe for work, mind you) posts some fanart from time to time. There are a few other blogs you can find through the tag, but no one really actively makes art/roleplays/fanfiction/etc.

Ah, I have a soft spot for Campion =^.^=
The other day when I was walking through the woods, I saw a rabbit standing in front of a candle making shadows of people on a tree.

And who wouldn't? Haha, even when I first read the books, I took a liking to him. The series just enforced it. His name is another thing I love, I don't know why. "Campion" just sounds really cool.

There is some of that on devianART and FanFiction.net, if you're interested. ;)

I definitely attempted reading some fanfiction.NET works! Most didn't interest me. I enjoy simple stories about the actual Watership Down characters rather than OC inserts or "ALTERNATE ENDINGS" or worse... human!versions of themselves that still live in burrows and in the wild... Very confusing. DeviantART seems promising! I'll have to look into it more.

Ah, I see. I've recently stumbled upon a story, that (I think) fits those requirements. It's not that long, but it's nice story, so you might like it. ;) It's called "Out of Place".

What do you mean with other community in Facebook? There's https://www.facebook.com/highlonelyhills that can be used for that (except Myrkin wants another FB-Site to run for updates - Hawkbit doesn't seem to be the social media guru :p )

We can use highlonelyhills FB-site for updates, since that would make things easy for you, Darkling. :)
