A typical scene in Rabbitwood with Ittilittik feeding his brain from the universe while Granny Nanny teaches Xena to walk.
Bacchus has pulled himself form his depression and returns to the beginning -- the library -- to enhance his cooking skill in preparation for the nectar brewing he will soon start.
Jordan reaches her teenage years with her future ahead of her, but she is saddened at Triton's feeble condition.
Ittilittik spends nearly every free moment he can in his lab, desperately seeking the formula that will turn Fleshlight from sentient sex toy to living, breathing sex toy.
Even in the day, Bacchus continues to garden, though he can't stay outside long before he begins to smolder in what have become for him the deadly rays of the sun.
Still clinging to life, Triton celebrates Xena's birthday with her and Ittilittik. Xena thinks Triton smells funny.
The public schools are no place for a mermaid, and many have died from dehydration under the rigid hand of the uncaring educators, so Jordan is sent off the boarding school to study art.
Ittilittik nervously gives Fleshlight the potion he made to turn her real...
And it works perfectly. The two young adults have their whole lives ahead of them. Ittilittik wants to immediately have a family, but Fleshlight just wants to enjoy the sex and not worry about actually trying to breed.
While Fleshlight was strong-willed enough to keep Ittilittik from breeding her, she was helpless against the charms of his father. What was to be a simple act of pleasure led to the living doll's first pregnancy. She was terrified to tell him, but she knew he would find out sooner or later.
Leeann gets $52,250 inheritance and secretly decides to move out on her own without her children so she can live a glamorous life away from these insignificant freaks.
Xena was given all of the attention when the twins' birthday came around. While everyone else celebrated the bunny boy's sister, Hrairoo was left alone to cry.
Before she announces that she is leaving, Bacchus sneaks up on Leeanna and they have one final romp in the shower.
Not even Bacchus' new supernatural speed can let him escape the tears of a broken heart.
After she finds out that Bacchus spent their fortune and her inheritance on the epic winery deep under the mansion, Leeann storms from the house not even bothering to dress herself. Only Bacchus was sad to see her go. After leaving, she became known as the town Harpy. Little did she know then that she was again pregnant.
As a vampire, Bacchus learned a new way to sleep, though his bedroom was now in the deepest, darkest level of the house adjoining his empty wine racks and his new nectar makers, imported from France. Triton now slept alone, but at his age he cared little. Each day that passed was one day closer to his eternal rest, and he longed for it.
Leeann continued to pour every scrap of money Bacchus made into building her mansion.
In the end, it was a sight to see, but the Rabbitwood family was cash poor, with less than §100 to their name.
Leeann made the mistake of angering Ittilittik and the angry young teen mixed up a potion and made her huge.
Still as large as they come, Leeann's water suddenly broke and she went into labor, much to the shock of the elderly Triton. She gave birth to twins; a girl named Xena and a boy named Hrairoo.
As Bacchus held Xena, he was sure that she would become a bunnyman just like her father, but only time would tell.
Ittilittik was overjoyed when he shed the mantle of teenager...
But now the young adult had to focus his efforts. Bacchus wasn't growing any younger and he still needed his father. He was sure that there would be an answer within the mysteries of the occult that did not displease The Builder.
Leeann cared so litter for her new children that rather than focus on feeding Xena, she nearly suffocated her daughter.
Bacchus wasn't sure what had happened to him. Ittilittik appeared and threw some vial at him and then locked himself into his lab. Bacchus felt and looked different, but he wasn't sure what it was at first. And then the hunger for blood hit and he knew that he was now a creature of the night; a vampire. He didn't know why his fist born son had done this to him, but he guessed it had to do with the boy being skipped over as his heir due to the lack of bunny ears.
While being a vampire may have granted Bacchus a longer life, it also meant that it was much easier for him to meet his death. He fretted about how he could continue his garden and how he could spread bunnies throughout the world, but those answers would come to him in time. For now, he had to get out of that ridiculous getup and into clothing that was more sophisticated.
After a string of nightmares involving The Builder either torturing his genitals, castrating him, or even fully nullifying him, Bacchus became desperate. He consulted occult sources and in a fit of desperation he built a replica of The Door of Life and Death.
Bacchus made a deal with The Grim Reaper for a supernatural child; a hybrid between him and his good friend Triton. The request was granted and Bacchus's cryptic pregnancy began.
Triton was in quite a state of shock when he got the news that he and Bacchus were going to be parents and even more shocked as to how it came to happen. Ittilittik didn't care. He didn't have the bunny ears and he knew that he was never going to be the heir of his Father's estate. His only hope would be to survive long enough to marry back into the family after several generations, and then it would be his child that would be heir, and then only if they had the bunny ears that Bacchus so coveted.
Bacchus was walking down the hallway when...
And he began to rant about how he was doomed by The Builder and how he was going to be mutilated and that he had failed in his holy mission to spread bunnymen across the world.
Hours, or was it days later the psychosis was over. It then, in the same hallway, that he noticed that the cryptic pregnancy had progressed and he was quite large. In fact, Bacchus had gained much more weight than when he was carrying Ittilittik, making the supernatural pregnancy even harder to endure. But, so long as The Builder was happy, then he would endure. And then he had another panic attack, but nothing near as severe as what he had experienced earlier.
Before long, though much longer than Bacchus would have liked, the time for the birth was at hand.
Triton and Bacchus were both without an explanation for their child's skin coloring. Both of them were deathly white and here was a dark brown baby. What had the Grim Reaper done to them? But medical tests confirmed that the child was both of theirs.
There was no doubt that Jordan was Bacchus' child as he had given birth to her, and even less when she had developed her bunny ears. But Triton was still unconvinced that she was his child.
Meanwhile, Ittilittik had developed a fascination with the supernatural. He was determined that there was a way to gain his father's praise and acceptance if he could somehow get the secret to the Door of Life and Death and be granted a bunny-eared child of his own, even his his very father was the donor.
The door would not accept him at his age, so he began researching alchemy looking for a way to speed his aging or slow his father's. He did not yet understand that both actions were forbidden by The Builder and if he succeeded then they would no longer be the chosen ones.
Bacchus seduced one of Ittilittik's friends from school. In the eyes of many she was too young, but she claimed she was nearly of legal age and if he succeeded in impregnating her she would be of legal age before the child was born, and thus he did.
The happy day came when Bacchus was finally promoted to the utmost ranks in his profession. He was now known as an Agricultural Mastermind and his abilities were without limit. The cash he was earning selling his produce had made more than enough money for a comfortable life in their modest underground home.
Bacchus convinced Leeann to move in, much to his regret.
Leeann was a diva and she insisted that Bacchus spend all of his money renovating the house into something that did not make her sick to look upon. Weak from another major bout of mental instability, Bacchus agreed and soon the fortune he had build up from his gardening career was gone, as was the car he had bought when he was suffering his midlife crisis. At least Triton had been able to convince her to let them keep the gay pride rainbow walk that he had put in, but she had it moved in line with the new and larger surface structure.
The fact that the new home was a lot of smoke and mirrors did not settle well with Leeann, but they were out of money. The upper levels of the two main towers were still not sound and thus they were unusable. They didn't even have stairs to reach the 3rd story yet. She pressured Bacchus to make more money so that their new home could be finished and she would not have to dirty herself by living underground. At least with what they had, she could entertain guests so long as they had no need of restroom facilities, which were still in the basement as the 2nd story bathrooms had not even been started.
Ittilittik remained bald as he grew to childhood. He longed for his father's long blue hair and beard, but just assumed he was too young to grow either.
Ittilittik continued to love the doll he had as a toddler and even gave it a new name; Fleshlight. While many other children his aged would "experiment" with their stuffed animals, his personal experiments were with his doll. Imagine his surprise when it came to life just after one of his special sessions!
When he could pull himself away from Fleshlight, Ittilittik would have Granny Nanny help him with his homework, but for the young alien boy school was hard and his mind was constantly on his living sex toy.
The Rabbitwood underground home was growing and now there were proper walls separating most of the rooms and Ittilittik even had his own room. Bacchus still was cash poor and struggled to grow the family fortune with only mediocre success.
For reasons that no one could explain, Granny Nanny too was abducted by an alien. What they did to the plumbot she either would not say or she did not have the capability to say.
Meanwhile, Bacchus was no longer a young adult. He was at the middle of his life and still he had only produced a single offspring and that offspring did not have the bunny ears. He could feel The Builder's displeasure, but he continued to obsess on his garden and did little to try to expand his family or his race.
Ittilittik too was growing older and soon he was a teenager. His hormones were running wild and his alien blood started to show even more. He finally had hair, no longer needed sleep and he could do things with his mind. The first thing he did was scan his living doll and he discovered that without a doubt it was a she and she enjoyed their special time. If only he could make her real so that they could have children and a life of their own.
Bacchus had a vision from the Builder that he would encounter aliens and that they would gift him with a child. That child would be his sign to begin his holy quest in earnest. When the heavenly lights came there was no containing his joy!
Bacchus waited anxiously to climb aboard their star ship and head for the skies.
What he had dreamed of all of his life was nothing like what had happened. Unpleasant things were put into all orifices of his body and upon his return he felt as if there was a lead weight sitting on top of his bladder. Bacchus stared in horrified shock as the alien trotted off and disappeared into her ship.
Bacchus tried to put the event behind him, but it had heightened his emotional problems, pushing his already tenuous sanity to the razor's edge of shattering. Many was the time he would find himself acting like a horse or a cat, licking his "paw" and washing himself. Were he more flexible there would probably be other areas he would have licked as well.
Though he had gotten used to the feeling of lead in his body, he was also putting on the pounds and it showed. However, there were other things to worry about and when Bacchus was more or less himself, he continued to busy himself with his other obsession; his garden. He was becoming quite the gardener and he hoped so someday travel to France and buy the equipment he needed to pursue his life's dream.
Without warning, there was excruciating pain. Bacchus can't tell you what happened but when it was over the weight on his bladder was gone, his stomach was back to normal, and he was hold a white-skinned infant with solid black alien eyes and little pointed ears. It was his first child and when it cried out for food he discovered, much to his surprise, that he was lactating in response.
Money was still tight, but Bacchus was able to afford a small underground room and a tube elevator. Inside he now had a bed, a toilet, a crib, and even a training potty. The child he named Ittilittik, and they began their new life together.
Bacchus was starting to make some money and he afforded an antique refrigerator a sink and an old counter. It wasn't the mansion he had always dreamed of, but it was his and it protected him and his son from the harsh elements.
Not soon enough, Ittilittik's birthday came. Bacchus bought a cake and they had a quiet celebration together.
The evening was marred by another one of Bacchus's fits of insanity where he thought he was a horse, but no one was seriously hurt.
Ittilittik was now a toddler and much to his father's surprise, his ears were stunted. Ittilittik did not manifest the bunny genes. The rabbitman was devastated, but he vowed that he would raise the child and give him a good life.
In the mail came a mysterious doll. It creeped Bacchus out, but Ittilittik loved it and would not be anywhere without it, so his father tried his best to ignore it.
Bacchus found that raising a toddler was even more frustrating that an infant. He did manage to potty train the kid, but he didn't have the patients to teach him more.
What his house lacked in splendor, his garden made up for. It was coming along nicely and he was even growing a money tree, though it wasn't nearly as profitable as some of the other plants.
With more money, Bacchus expanded their home further, making a usable kitchen and then adding a robotics invention room. He jsut couldn't stand the time it was taking to raise a child, and if he were going to populate the world with bunnmen then he needed help.
The look of delight in Ittilittik's eyes when he saw his robotic nanny, called "Granny Nanny" by his father, warmed the rabbitman's heart and he knew that it was time to try to start spreading his seed.
