what’s even funnier is that
egg was based on The Last Unicorn
i rlly liked how egg’s story came out so here are the parallels.
in the last unicorn all the unicorns were into the ocean by the red bull. the last unicorn is what keeps the garden she lives in stay in spring.
egg is the last of the angels cast onto earth to watch over humanity. egg loses his/her purpose to keep the world perfect. Rat also wants egg’s spade like how hunters want the unicorns’ horns
apple was based on The Velveteen Rabbit
the velveteen rabbit was a abandoned stuffed animal that was thrown away. the velveteen rabbit’s owner was very ill and couldn’t keep his belongings. in the end, a fairy makes the velveteen rabbit a real rabbit
apple is one of the rare descendants of the tree that brought sin into the world. apple’s ancestors killed all because of sin. in the end, apple is crowned with a inverted spade
and rat was based on Charlotte's Web
rat is the most far off from charlotte’s web. rat is a mix of many characters, but mainly on charlotte
in charlotte’s web, Charlotte dies in the end. she often insists everything will be alright and wilbur will not be slaughtered by spinning webs.
rat lives in the end. he/she often insists everything will be alright and apple will not be harmed by egg, but this is a lie of course.rat manipulates by over rewarding and praising. there are talking animals in charlotte’s web aswell. rat is also based on John Arable and Fern Arable. rat can under stand both egg and apple like fern can understand animals. rat also is like john bc rat wants to get rid of egg like how john will get rid of wilbur meat.
i wanted rat to feel the most complete out of the three. i also wanted rat to have this computer personality, rat has no guilt or feelings and he/she just keeps going. rat predicts and knows what the other characters want
they’re children’s books on steroids
