I liked how we can "See" the Purple Haze through Chestnut/Kestrel's eyes! Kind of like wearing purple shaded sunglasses, I would imagine! So cute (and weird) to see her having sexy times with elders/older elves. Kestrel was a party-er!!

This is such a cute story, and its really lovely to see a younger Kestrel so light-hearted in comparison to the one we see now. I also really like seeing the good relationship she has with Stoneback, their powers are like opposites but they still are good friends. There are so many times that you see opposites fight eachother so I like this non-stereotypical look at things.

It's such a funny story! Kestrel as an enthusiastic youngster who is discovering her powers is so differnt to her "now"-self. And I loved best Stonebacks comment, on what she can lift with her powers, I had to laugh loud!

It's so great to see someone as old and wise a Kestrel in her giggly, enthusiastic teenage days! She's not someone you think of as being like this that often, but it's really fun to imagine it. And it's extra fun to see her interacting with one of the mainstays of the tribe when she was younger; it emphasizes how long ago the story takes place. Stoneback is a character it'd be fun to see more of. I also really liked the flirty vibe, since you don't necessarily expect that of her... or him!

I think this is one of the first stories I came across describing the colorful glows associated with magic using. Seemed a little weird at first, but neat to see how much pride and wonder Chestnut has in it. I also love the playful ending. Kestrel's life seems so full of sorrow, it's great to see her young and having fun.

OooooOOOoOOOhh, what they said..! *giggle* *blush* *cough*

Love this piece! I like that it's short. It seemed to work well for this story. I totally agree, it's so wonderful seeing our elder young, carefree, and being taken care of by *her* elders as she stretches her reach both with powers and relationships. Such a fresh, young, innocent look at her and I love it!

This story put a smile on my face. Chestnut being so thrilled with her abilities Also, the mention of the 'glow' that surrounds things that are affected by magic was very nice – I've never seen any definite answer to if elves are able to see it, or if Wendy Pini simply drew it like that for us readers to realize magic was happening, and most Holts I've been in has just ignored it; to see it addressed is very interesting!

Stoneback and Chestnut's conversation at the end was very funny and I chuckled both once and twide.

awww... thanks! :) this was a lot of fun to write, and I can't remember, at all, what sparked it. :) Sometimes, too... it's nice when a story is "too short." Can give other writers ideas (hint, hint) about what to write next... :)

Very sweet! So nice to see Kestrel be a young girl for once, so carefree and innocent! I can only agree with the others, the twist on "Purple Haze" was really clever :p.

That's such a sweet piece! It's fantastic to see Chestnut/Kestrel as a fairly carefree youngster. And I think you did a great job with bringing in other characters from that point in time, setting the stage so to speak, and making sure that the atmosphere was also different from the 'modern' stories. The ending definitely made me grin!

I enjoyed this and must agree with the other comments that 1) it was too short, I would have loved a little more and 2) the double meaning to purple haze was brilliant! Nicely done :)

Such a cute story, Lyn. My only complaint is that it's so short :P It's nice to see "old soul" Kestrel so happy and proud of her new ability, and the last part made me giggle.

That was so sweet. Unusual to see Kestrel so young and gigglish ^^. It’s not surprising seeing that she’s the oldest in the current tribe. :P I like how much pride and joy she feels on her magic. *sigh* Yeah the new “toy”.
The scene with Stoneback was quite interesting as well and it gave the “purple Haze” a nice double meaning ;) Great work again Lyn ^.^
