Young Crackle has quite an imagination, doesn't she? I really enjoyed how you showcased her storytelling skill throughout here. I felt that the reaction from young, impressionable minds was very believable!

Interesting look at both Rill and Crackle's relationship, and Rill and Quick Fang's relationship. Also nice to bring up something Crackle fears but Rill loves.

*grin* Nobody in the tribe tells a good scary story like Crackle! She makes the unbelievable so plausible! I admit, for a second or two, I even found MYSELF believing that maybe, just maybe there was an RTH version of Madcoil on the loose out there! O_O I like how the story started with the unusual reversal of Crackle being the one scared while the cub isn't, then she goes and tells a story to turn that around (though she's still scared)! ;)

I really love how this story shows Crackle using her storytelling skills in a less-benign way. I mean, her tendency to tell scary stories to get a reaction from her audience isn't exactly "benign" in the first place (except that I get the feeling she regards a good scare as "fun", and thus she's trying to share the fun, not be mean). But here, I get the feeling that she's doing it in order to share her misery at the storm with her brother -- like if she's going to be scared, then she's going to make sure that he understands and is scared too! :) How very big-sisterly of her!

I can't help but love the last sentence here. Crackle KNEW this would mean trouble to her but she gladly takes that risk to just scare her little brother with a story.
I only can agree, that I like to see Crackle still is Crackle with these stories and makes up horror for the simple nature ruling outside. Love the idea behind her story and I like the interaction between the siblings here as well. The connection felt real ^^

Thank you for commenting. I really enjoyed writing this story, and I'm happy that my thoughts go across. I was really hoping that the whole 'sibling feel' got across. I'm happy to see that it has.

Nice to see that Crackle still has her scary stories and is ready to share them with young, impressionable minds ;). That was a great scene of sibling interaction, and I found it nice to see that Rill decides to flee to his mother in the end - maybe motherhood changed a thing or two about her!

You can't help but feel sorry for Rill here -- and I do wonder what literal-minded Quick Fang will think when her son tells her about the dangerous skyfire beasts! (I can only imagine that Rill will eventually wise up and demand **Send to me, so I know you're not making stuff up!** But until then.... muhahahaha! Crackle will sow many a seed for future phobias...)

This story is adorable all over. I love that as a reader, we know that Crackle's making the story up; though you also are left with the impression that just maybe she believes herself a little bit. Poor Rill... a choice between scary stories and irritable Quick Fang...

Hahaha, poor Rill. Love to see that Crackle is still Crackle with all her scary stories ans ideas and fantasies.
And they are convincing siblings here. I remember my older brother trying to scare me often, too.
