I like this slice of life! Of course there will be some rare moments when two tribemates will have to interact with one another! This was one of those rare times! Poor awkward Windburn! Glad Willow and he are "over" her initial growing pains!!

This is a wonderful addition to the healer-assisted pregnancy storyline! I really love this look at how all of it affected Willow, and her various doubts and insecurities about it. Also, the interaction between Windburn and Willow is great.

Can I just say that “I don't want any of that frog piss" made me laugh? Those colorful swears always get me XD

What an enjoyable read! I like seeing Windburn reaching out and attempting comfort, and the scene coloured through his eyes. :) Willow's response to the tea had me cracking up, so funny to have her spirit there despite physical exhaustion. And really nice to see Windburn keep on trying until he could actually help her.

I very much liked that this was a look at a key part of the Trio Pregnancy storyline (at one of the several unsuccessful attempts), but that it also picked up on the older storyline about Willow's powers emerging and the difficulties that she and Windburn had. It's also always interesting to see how bad Windburn is at being comforting to others. ;-) He may have other strengths as a leader, but being a comfort to his tribemates doesn't seem to be one of them, which is a good flaw to know about.

I really enjoyed how this fic seemed to feel like a healing of ways between Windburn & Willow, if only in my own perceptions. After the conflicts of Willow's troubles in developing her ability, it was so wonderful to see these two treating one another with respect and like fellow adults!

I learn more and more about Windburn for each story I read from his POV. I'll admnit to not quite having grasped how his mind works yet, since it seems a never ending shift between "chief & Now" and "elf & planning ahead", but he's fascinating none the less. As for Willow, I could almost feel her frustration and disappointent, and finally relief.

I liked this a lot. Seeing how the failing forced pregnancy effects Willow and her self-esteem and Windburn interacts with her. What I always loved and love about this holt is how real and convincing relationships are portrait here. The way Windburn looks at Willow and on the one hand is annoyed by her stubbornness and on the other genuinely cares about her even through he's irritated by her strikes very real to me. I loved the part where he realized that he did just pick the wrong thing to say.

Windburn really isn't good with words and he clearly was out of his comfort zone here but he tried and that warmed my heart.

Very nice and well written story Heidi :)

I really enjoyed this look at Windburn and his actions when he has some time alone, and how he reacts when his alone time is interrupted. I like how he tries to ignore his irritation and help his tribemate, but you get to see a little bit of how hard it is for him. A really good story, and a good look at Windburn's personality.

I really enjoyed reading more about Windburn and his insecurities and flaws when it comes to interaction with his tribe members on a verbal and emphatic base.

I really liked seeing more about Willow's side of the forced pregnancy - in that way, I loved that the title can be interpreted in two ways: We see more about Willow in this story line that so far was rather concentrating on the threemates, and Windburn sees a different side of Willow in this. And it's always great to learn more about Windburn and his view of his tribesmates! It's clear that Willow is someone who irritates him and that he is not the best at dealing with personal issues, but he cares and tries his best.

I really like this story, Heidi! I think it's great to see Windburn in action, to get a better view into some of how he thinks, and to see how he genuinely cares about each member of the tribe, even the ones that sometimes irk him. I really like how he stands his ground and encourages Willow to let herself rest.
