Arrrgh, I cannot help it, stories about Newt's unwrapping and the hard time afterwards always made me cry. Even if they are told from a wolf's point of view, which was a very inventive and effective idea! Of course, they must be affected by the arrival of those four, too. All those new scents. I hadn't thought about it before.

I just love this so much! Poor Newt's sobs sounding through the holt was just heartrending, so of course it would attract elf aand wolf alike to ease his suffering! I almost choked laughing at Lightjaw's concept of Cloudfern impregnating Greenweave, along with the impression I got of the sarcasm behind that notion sent to Spirit! LOL! Overall, Lightjaw and Spirit were very well developed as characters here, and I loved how you showed the age difference as well as the difference of perspective based on who's elf-friend was who's. I liked how they were puzzling the situation out, but in the end it all came down to basic emotion. :)

Any story that takes place soon after Newt's unwrapping seems to break my heart :( I love how you decided to write this from the wolves' point of view - I always admire anyone who can do that convincingly. Too funny that they considered the possibility that Greenweave had borne Newt himself!

Sweet! I love, that the wolves recognised that Newt and Greenweave are related, and even if they don't know where the cub is coming from, accepted him as a "familymember" anyway. And I love this glimpses in the minds of the bondwolves here in River Twine, it's very interesting how their minds work!

I do love the River Twine wolves and how they have such an active role in the Holt. A very wolf-y and sweet look at Newt's early sorrows.

I was most touched when Newt looked up, hopeful, wishing it was his mother's wolf... that it had all been a bad dream... and then, how he accepted Spirit's comfort anyway.

This is incredibly sweet! And it makes perfect sense that the wolves would be confused and curious. Sometimes my cats can sense when I'm sad and they snuggle up with me. I loved the personality you showed in these two wolves.

Great job on this, Suzene. I too especially like how this gives the two wolves real personality and agency, including slight differences from each other, and a sense of humor (or, sarcasm), as well as compassion. They really ARE part of the family, and it's great to see them included.

Aww, this was so sweet! I agree with the others, it's great to see the wolves take the leading role in a story, and you did a great job at portraying them! Love how their personalities are depicted and how they decide to take care of poor little scared Newt :).

Oh, this was wonderfully done. It is easy to bypass the wolves and their emotions in the face of the much more "eloquent" elves but you've captured the concerns and puzzlement of these wolves so well. It melts the heart totally.

I loved to see the wolves' perspective on the unwrappings! It's probably not easy for some elves to understand (especially the unwrapped ones) but it must be even harder to understand for the wolves. I think you tackled this quite well, and I liked seeing the wolves in the stories, as well -- they're usually there as sidekicks, but having them play a leading role is refreshing :)

It's hard to show personality through wolf-sends -- you did a fantastic job with this! And I so love how you thought to include the wolves in the development of this new family! (Flea is sulking over being left out, but then, as omega, the other wolves probably wouldn't let her in the room! :D )

Thank you so much for writing this story Suzanne. Told you before but I think that's really cute. I like the wolfish POV and how the personalities of the wolves are so clear here.
In congrats how you managed to make me smile despite this sad setting. Never will get the picture of a Greenweave with the baby belly outa my head XD
And it's just nice to see that the wolves accept Newt an offer comfort. This is a very sweet and touching picture.
