Marian's Joy is a poem-style story by PrinceBalto.

Marian watches her son Nick's wedding to Judy Hopps


Marian thinks of the past as her son Nick heads toward his future with his new bride, Judy Hopps.


My son

My beloved Nick

It is happening

You are getting married

For a moment, I have to tell myself that this is true

That my son is now a full-grown fox

I still remember when you were just a little kit

You were adorable

Now you are handsome

I watch as you embrace and kiss your bride

The image of the little kit melts away in my mind

Replaced by a young adult fox of exceptional handsomeness

On this day, I didn't lose a son

I gained a daughter

My son

My beloved Nick

This is my joy
