Poor Newt! I really wished that Crackle was right, but how would she know? It's so childlike to guess that Willow can heal and fix everything and it was probably a painful lesson for Newt and her to learn! I can really feel with Newt, he just wants to be like the other children...

You described very well how aweful it must be for a child to live under restictions his body sets on him. I really feel for Newt here. It is so understandable that he wishes it to be different and that he clings to the smallest hopes... even when they come from a cloud-head such as Crackle.

Meta-musing on the limits of Willow's healing in this way was very clever. Too bad Newt had to suffer burns for the other cubs to realize everything isn't fixed just because Willow told them. I felt so much sympathy with Newt when things turned out the way they did - he seemed so happy at the prospect of getting to play in the river all day with the rest of the cubs (though I wouldn't really advice that for them either, seeing as water makes sunburns so much worse, being relfective and all).

Aw... Poor Newt. Though I know Crackle is young, I wish she hadn't suggested that and got him burned. Its really well written, and evokes so much emotion. Very nice. :)

I wish for Newt that Willow *could* have healed him.... At least he's good-natured...

Hah! Yes, why not? It seems like such a logical conclusion to come to, particularly since Willow *did* fix what was wrong with Fadestar. I feel for Newt, that he found out the hard way that it wasn't so.

This was really cute. I like seeing how the cubs interpret "new" things around the Holt -- and it's especially neat to see how Crackle interprets these things. I mean, why wouldn't things have worked out the way Crackle thought they should have?

Aww, this was very cute! Poor Newt - it's really hard on him not being able to just be out and about without thinking of the sun ... No wonder he'd loved to believe Crackle.

I loved seeing the children together! I agree with Mel, it's great to see how some of our tribe are unsure what a healer can do and can't do! And I really loved the last sentence :).

And again :D Thank you for that wonderful story. My poor Newt. I like that you picked up the sunburns. It's also good to see the cubs together :) All the current youngsters.
Crakle's believe in Willow was such nice touch. (Shows us that the some might not know exactly what healing and Wilow can do and what not) And that she brought it together with healing Fadestar's heart. Just great :D
I liked this a lot. Thanks so much again!
