So many emotions here! It's a bit like watching a train wreck in progress, so many different and better options but the anger and rage and hurt brings out the worst in these two...

Yeah, go for it, Dreamflight!
So good to see her finally losing patience with her mother and standing up against her, although - as Whitney mentioned - the apple did not fall far from the tree. One can definitely see that they are mother and daughter.

While you can't help but feel sorry for her here, I still find Dreamflight's self-centered hypocrisy absolutely hilarious! The poor girl sure can't see how much the apple has fallen from the tree, can she? This fic just left me that much sorrier for poor Greenweave!

Woah! *rocks from the force of Dreamflight's sends*

This was just CRACKLING with the tension and drama between these two! Good for Dreamflight to finally stand up to Honey. I like how you wrote Honey, too -- stunned temporarily but in too foul a mood to admit any wrongdoing or back down. I was really impressed with how direct and forceful Dreamflight was, especially at the ending!

"Shut up, mother."

Finally! I've been waiting for Dreamflight to tell Honey exactly that since the moment of their reunion. Still, I get why it's taken so long. Life might not have been great for Honey (though I'd argue a lot of it is her own doing) and she is Dreamflight's beloved mother, but no one should have to put up with having a parent blaming them for said parent's divorce.

It'll be interesting to see what happens to Honey and Dreamflight after this - I'll have to keep reading!

Poor Dreamflight! Just like Honey, she's been denied her perfect happily-ever-after, and reality is nowhere near as shiny as she always hoped! Thankfully, it seems her time away from Honey gave her some perspective, and hasn't picked up any bad habits from her mother's behaviour. This is such a great moment to have captured. It speaks so much about them both.

Wow... 30 years has really helped Dreamflight to grow up some! Maybe the time with Honey asleep was good for her--taught her to be independent some and to say what she was feeling. I like that she confronted her mother on Honey's dramatism... though this also makes you feel a bit sorry for Honey. :) I love the way you can really SEE the mother daughter relationship and how sometimes it's not perfect... and sometimes the thing that causes the most conflict is the area where they're very much similar.

Edit 2014: Funny how time, and a change of character, can change the interpretation reading a story. Initially I'd thought she'd grown up some, now I wonder if Dreamflight didn't go too far? She'd pushed away Greenweave (I wonder if more out of loyalty to her mother); and now pushes away Honey (mind you, Honey was being a B----, but still). Maybe just because her own misguided images of what it would be like w/ Honey out of wrapstuff were shut down. Dreamflight doesn't seem to deal w/ disappointment well here. (I feel sorry for her... and hope she grows up)

Oooh! This made me really feel for both characters, but especially for Dreamflight -- she's spent *so long* just wishing she could have her mother back, that it's particularly poignant to see her having to face the imperfect reality of it. I also liked how you can see the resemblance between mother and daughter, here -- but how Dreamflight also comes across as her own person, because instead of settling into her own poor-me routine, she puts her foot down and says what she feels. Good for her! I'm looking forward to seeing where this all goes.

Yay Dreamflight! You don't have to take all this! I wonder, however, if this will be yet another thing for Honey to mope about. I can see her twist the situation into her advantage.

OhhhH! ... Honey reached the breaking point. I somehow was waiting on that .. Poor Dreamflight. I feel for her and that she think she's alone :( In the end I know that even if her father wouldn't turn her down that when you feel left alone it IS real *hugs her*

Well now I can really see that Newt would be a thorn in her side. I diffidently have to finish this story we talked about!!

Woah! I didn't think Honey would be able to ostracise her own daughter but it seems not even Dreamflight can take her dramatics any more - except she's quite good at it herself. She really learned from the best ... I really wonder how this drama will turn out.

Honey telling Dreamflight not to be dramatic made me laugh XD!
