I like the all too human reactions in the elves. Evervale has the more-common-than-you-might-think embarrassment of dealing with an injury that "shouldn't" have happened in the first place... And I love that Willow's personality gets in the way of the Wise Healer motive that is SO common in fantasy! This would be like having a bad experience with a doctor (socially or medically) and having to see him because he's the only one in the village! :P

Very nice story! I liked that you let Evervale's pride get hurt ;) it happens and it should be shown! It's also good that she has a chance to work out her feelings towards Willow's healing abilities and see Pathmarks character can equaly support family and loved ones.

Good job Evervale! XD Honestly I've done the same thing, tripped over a root and fell. Only difference I fell down a hill. So I definitely know how much damage that can do. Its a good depiction of that. Its also a really good show of how hard it is to rebuild trust, after it was been ruined, even if it wasn't on purpose.

I really like how this looks at the natural ripples in the tribe caused by the sharing of the memories about Owl... and how it affects Evervale, given her particular experiences with Willow. I also like that the story ends on a somewhat ambiguous note; the situation isn't yet completely resolved. I'd like to see where it goes.

I'm glad Evervale is starting to deal with the feelings that came when Willow (accidentally) hurt her... and what she really thinks and feels when her own memories are combined with what she now knows about Owl! Thank you for this, Vicki!

Poor Evervale! I have twisted my ankle twice and it hurt really badly. I don't know what I would do if I hurt my wrist as well. Pathmark's perceptiveness has helped her, at least.

What a tough huntress little Evervale can be. Good that you reminded me again that our sweet plantshaper is still a Wolfrider.
I really like that you ended the story without the actual meeting of Evervale and Willow, because the main focus has been on how Evervale deals with her inner onflict. Very neat.

This was a great read - a very well-written story about re-building trust and daring to take a leap of faith. And Evervale is still fairly young, so stumbling upon trusted ones making awful mistakes might still be very new to her. I like the way you described it and the note of hope there at the end. I do love happy endings. And happy beginnings.

The effect of Willow manifested healing powers on her tribemates is always interesting to see. Evervale's doubts were a bit different from what healing-related avoidance I've seen thus far from the elves. She seems to not want to mistrust Willow, but worries aren't always logical. Very well written!

It is a lovely story and I think that trust between a haeler and a patient is fery importend

Since I had forgotten the previous incident, this story pointed out why Evervale might be uncomfortable asking Willow for Healing very well. It was neatly handled.

Oh, it's great to see more reactions to Willow's powers and the sending of Owl's story, and it's especially great to see the episode with Evervale revisited. It's a nice twist that she's got a very different reason to be wary than what most assume. And it's really wonderful to see the lovemates together - they haven't had enough spotlight yet! Pathmark is so sweet here, worried about Evervale and staunchly supportive of his sister. And yes, I can sympathize with Evervale - oh, sure it will get better all on its own! I think everyone knows that.

There's two things I really like about this story:

1. It shows an elf literally falling flat on her face and experiencing the same kind of embarrassment we'd all feel in the situation. It breaks away from the tendency to give elves this outstanding athletic prowess that can border on the unbelievable. (Maybe not so much at RTH, but other places.)

2. It also shows why having a healer might not be as great as one would think. To me, things like magic are always easier to swallow if there's a cost to them, and I think you've shown that there is a cost to deal with and consider, one that's very real and frightening to Evervale.

It was nice to see the effect of the sending shared about Owl on some elves. I mean Evervale in particular with her little secret might have been effected strongly.
I like as well how this illustrates the closeness of the lovers and how sweet Pathmark is here. He doesn't know it all u he's supportive toward his lovemate and sister
I had to smile a bit. Oh how familiar the the sound is "It will be better by itself"...
