I figured that I would try out something a little different now that the sixth story arc of ‘When Instinct Falls’ has come and gone: With the upcoming arrival of the seventh, which will be as large and as bursting with fun new content as ever, I figured that it might be fun just to post the current rough draft that I have for the introduction of chapter 87, the very beginnings of a whole new arc for the story.
Do enjoy, and feel free to comment your thoughts on it and all to come. Thanks!
‘12:30 P.M ; Two Months After the Events in the Deciduous-District
It was all too good to be home.
Being able to spread your wings and take flight to new and exciting places on adventures to be remembered was a truly wondrous thing, but there had always been something about returning home that made the experience all the more satisfying. There had to be a reason behind the simple, yet hopeful sayings of 'home sweet home', and 'home is where the heart is'. Their meanings may have transcribed worth in the likeness of a homeward bound family, perhaps, but surely there was a higher truth to their words, no? A basis behind its existence?
Judy Hopps believed so.
Having grown up in a very family-oriented, quiet (That being the operative word, given how loud a house of 277 rabbits could get), and culturally conservative residence, Judy herself was long since familiarized with the concept of home ethics, and the importance of the household and its inhabitants. Living in Bunny-Burrow for the majority of her life, she was subject and expected to work in the carrot fields at a young age, and continuously fed ideas about the high value of family and homeliness, so that she could grow up to be just another simple, homebody bunny with little to work for other than the spawning of even more simple, homebody bunnies. It wasn't a life for her, however, and she voiced it.
Of course, Judy had always had a more adventurous side to her being, and an appetite for stimulation that was both gnawing and practically unquenchable.
Said appetite drove her to escape the confines of her hometown and set foot inside the city of Zootopia in the first place. It was ultimately what drove her to become a full fledged police officer, and seize control over the reigns of her own life. It was also what drove her to take heed and enjoy the time that she had spent with her husband, Nick Wilde, in the Deciduous-District during their outings with Chief Urzo and the officers of Precinct Seven. It may have had its tough moments, but was still a memorable experience to behold for them both.
After nearly three full weeks of romping around the woodlands, performing work for their superiors and associates, Nick and Judy were, at last, out of the woods.’
Thanks for reading it, and I do hope that you enjoyed. The new and upcoming chapter is still in development at the current moment, of course, but you can expect it to drop within the following few days or so. Time will tell, as it always does. Until then, I greatly appreciate your interest, and thank you for your time.
Stay tuned, everyone. It’ll be here a whole lot sooner than you think.
