This is so sweet! I could see this being one of Honey's first memories. Love the family and family friend dynamic! Like that Windburn had a folk art/folk lore side! It's ironic to make/see/sell/buy a "weather" stick as an adult, but I bet when he made the rock as a cub it was REAL!

What a clever weather-rock XD Trip felt like a real four year old here, so eager to do fun things that she forgets why they're cooped up together in the first place.

I love the way you worked in that old joke about the weather-rock, Lyn! (And it's interesting to see from other's comments that it's clearly a regional thing. I wonder if it's just the northeast US, or if you find such things in other parts of the US? I've seen the same "joke" employed for "weather sticks" as well. In some tourist areas, you can buy a weather-rock or weather-stick or similar thing in touristy gift-shops, painted with the "gauge" that explains how it "tells" you the weather. One I always remember for the weather-stick is that if it's gone, that means there's a hurricane...)

Beyond that, it's really cool just to see some brother-sister interaction between Thornbow and Honey; and to see Windburn just being a friend in a pretty uncomplicated way.

I admit I never heard of such thing as a weather rock but that story was just too precious. I too liked seeing the relationship between the siblings here and Windburn in the mix. He seemed so light-heated here it was almost scar XD Well he as well had been a kid at some point, right?

Love the feel of friendship between Thornbow and Windburn here and that Thornbow did keep the rock for such a long time. The gesture to pass it on to his sister was also very sweet. It was good to see Honey in lighter carefree days.

Aw that was a nice story. It was good to see a good Big Brother/Little Sister scene, and to see Honey at such a young age to boot. I really like seeing True Edge helping her grow up, and then seeing Windburn soften the blow with the information of the Weather-Rock.

I loved this fic -- both at the chance to see Honey as such a sweet little kid, but also just to see Windburn and Thornbow together as young friends. Priceless!

It was a lot of fun to write this and show Honey with her brother and Windburn!

I absolutely love seeing the early relationships between Thornbow, Honey and Windburn being explored. I was also glad to see that Trip catches on to the idea of the weather rock so quickly and is able to be in on the joke. I also think you really capture how it must be in the winter, all hunkered down and huddled for warmth. Thank you for the wonderful story.

Haha, I had a picture of such a weather rock from a RenFair once =) (except that it wasn't beautifully painted). Nice to see it appear in a story here, too! And this was a lovely look at Thornbow's relationships with both his sister and Windburn - I really like that he kept the rock all those years! I wonder if Honey kept it until now, too?
