Captain Holly's Last Command by Edonohana

'Darnel smelled like primroses and oak-roots and moist black earth. In this land of tall spindly weeds and crumbling brown dirt, he still smelled like Sandleford. He was at once as familiar and alien to Holly as the words of a native tongue long since abandoned by its speaker for the language of some foreign shore.' A slow-moving piece, perfectly in tune with the original, with a well-realised OC. To say more would spoil it

[Added 06/08/2015; Drama; 2500-6000; Watership Down; Characters: Holly, Fiver, OCs]

Strong Yet Weak by KaptainSarcasm

'"The Black Rabbit will challenge you, and you must win. Just know that you will keep running, my son, and you will become the thing of legends."' Excellent mingling of myth with present as a new adventure begins for Blackavar

[Added 30/12/2005; Drama; 2500-6000; Watership Down; Characters: Blackavar, El-ahrairah, Fiver, Black Rabbit of Inlé, original character]
