The Hare Life Story by Katmomma The Hare Life Story by Katmomma
SCROLL RIGHT TO READ THE WHOLE STORY
:iconreadplz:

As part of consistency development for the story, I doodled this up to sequence the life of Jack and Bernadette in a sort of homey childrens' book like presentation. I also did this because there are a lot of things I value in real life in this piece: some of these things I am disappointed with today's day and age. The value of long term commitment, loyalty, perseverance, unconditional love, and honesty seem to have gone south these days. I guess you can't achieve these things if you can't find the right person......so many people think they are sure on someone, but then turn around and get divorced a few years later.
In all of the life long couples I've met, I find a very acute and particular pattern. The couples were friends long before they married, some of which, actually played together as kids, and others were high school sweethearts. But the important thing was being friends first.

It's strange but I notice that people who go right for thinking romantic, and actually looking for that right person.....seem to have the hardest time finding someone to spend the rest of their lives with and be 100% sure about it. I guess the battle of Love vs lust has a play in that.
But anyway..............................................

About the "Mature" Content
So you will notice I threw something in that could be questionably "naughty"....but indeed it's meant more to be innocent and logical. Pro-creation dudes.....I mean.....come on.......babies don't come from storks :B Unless they are stork babies.
And I really didn't fancy drawing a preggo Bernadette for this one. Jack's fat ass takes up too much room anyway :XD:
If you feel this needs a mature content tag, please let me know.

The Last Panel
It made me want to cry :happycry: I think mostly because like my grandparents married for so long.... I hope that one day I can grow old with someone :cuddle:

gotta change the big view of it, you can hardly read it. If you have silvelight for firefox, then you can zoom in more but other than that you need to change the view of it when you click the pic you still cant read it XD

I totally agree with you about that. People find it weird that I'm almost 20 years old and haven't even dated anyone, but I just haven't found anyone that I like quite that much. Of course, it will probably be better for me, because I'm not seeking love, and if I never get married, well, that's fine, too. Whatever happens, happens, but if I get married, it'll freakin' well last, dangit.

Very moving and really nicely illustrated. Great work with the facial expressions! Admittedly, I did laugh when I got to the "questionably naughty" panel. :D

I agree with what you've written too; it tends to be the couples that start out as friends who know what they're doing when making a commitment. Too often I've seen my friends get obsessed with their partner and rush things (sometimes involving marriage) and before you know it things have ended between them.

Two of my friends got married a while back. A few years after, the wife told me the story; she was thinking of breaking up with him, but he proposed to her at the top of the Eiffel Tower and she felt like she had to accept. Their marriage didn't last 5 years.

Still, on a brighter note, I'm confident my cousin is doing the right thing. She's been with her boyfriend for many years now (in fact they've been living together for about 4 years) and spent last year traveling the world together. Next year they're getting married, and I think they'll be a lot like the hares in your story! :)
