I love the cub name "Bugfluff!!" OMG, so cute!! I love how Moss/Bugfluff's song was more of a howl and how his family and soon the tribe joined in! So special!

This is a really sweet story. I loved how didnt notice his parents missing at fir for the snow or the cold for the lights. It was really cute, and I love that he concluded singing would help the lights come back.

I not only like the descriptiveness you've used in painting the scene in this story, but I also really enjoy how you've managed to tie past and present together here in this tale. It's nice to see that some things inspire awe and admiration through the ages, even though different generations might choose to observe the moment differently.

Simply beautiful - everything about the story conveys the magic of the moment, from how little Bugfluff is distracted away from more mundane things, to the description of the lights. I really love the image of the whole tribe sitting quietly in the trees, together in their families, watching the aurora - it begs a piece of art to go with it, but the description is really evocative already. And then of course the singing in the end - bang on in character for Moss even as a kid.

Lovely family and tribe moment! Great descriptions of both the elves, the lights and their past history with Wolfsister and the traditions around it then. The song Bugfluff thought up was also a great addition and I hope it makes a return in a future story (or it might of course already have and I just haven't read that story yet). I am curious as to why the lights in the sky are appearing less and less frequently though - climate change?

Great story! I love what the Elves think from where the lights come from and the idea of singing to them to invite them is so sweet and childlike of little Bugfluff. It's a really heartwarming story and i hope, this weren't the last northern lights Moss had seen in his life!

I'm also really glad to see young Moss with his parents -- we don't see enough of them! And I like the way this treats how the elves would view the aurora.

Thank you for this look into Moss's relationship with his parents, and on the response of the Elves to the "magical lights" :) I'm glad that they appreciate them as much as I would if I could get a glimpse of them!

I love this glimpse into Moss' past; the little family seems so content and happy. I agree with others that I wish Cider and Rhythm were alive in the tribe's present - they seem like such interesting, creative characters!

Such a sweet story and such a nice atmosphere you created here. I love the feel of the cold and silence and wonder here. It just has his dreamlike far away feel, if you know what I mean ...

And I agree. It's nice to see a glimpse of Rythem and Cider. With such creative parents.. how could Mos not turn himself into a creative grown up.

What a beautiful story! I could feel the warmth of the family sitting together under the fur -- emotional as well as physical warmth. It actually reminds me of watching the fireworks at Disneyland with *my* family when I was that age, and I can tell you you got it exactly right. I really loved the description for the aurora borealis as well. I'd love to see this song in a more recent-timeline story as well with Moss sharing the memory with younger tribesmembers!

Aww, this is a very sweet story. I especially love that you can already see Moss' love for music and his creative spirit in little Bugfluff :). And I loved having a glimpse at Rhythm and Cinder!

You created such a nice scene here. I could clearly imagine the den-trees´ branches full of elves staring into the bright night sky.
I wish Rhythm and Cider would be still alive, they seem to be so interesting characters.
