This is such a good story of the "It will never be the same" variety! Rainpace has grown leaps and bounds over Notch. Notch reminds me of the creepy old guy in the club now ~ can't wait for him being more grown-up as well!! Rainpace and Windsong's friendship is so nice to see as we don't really think of those characters together.

I like how Rainpace noticed the changes in Notch's behavior, but not in his own; felt very realistic, as we rarely notice how we ourselves change, as we're living those changes.

I think again you did improve with this story Peggy. The more you write the better you get. It's amazing to watch :D

As for the story itself, it's very sweet to see a new friendship forming here. Even through the whole tribe is one family I often tend to forget that some are closer and smoe only know "causally". It's nice watching new relationships forming while others cool down.

Rainpace's frustration with Notch felt very real to me. His rant and feel of being left out is so belivable as is his way to net see that he indeed did move on and has a live of his own now.

It's kinda sad to see the prankster trio (foursome) grow apart but also showed that relationships over the centuries DO change. I love to have this acknowledged.

Wind Windsong dose make a good friend here, being supportive without foundling him and just being honest.
Rainpace sure did grow more into his own elf and is no longer the shadow of the prankster trio ^^

Part of me wants to say aw poor Rainpace, but the other part of me is happy for him and the person he has become. Its a good story to show what could be seen as the more negative to recognition and growing up. Also, its very cute that he brought Glow with him.

Thank you for writing this - to show some of "the other side" of Recognition and becoming a parent.

I like seeing how Rainpace is changing, maturing, growing up since his Recognition. This story is nicely reflective of events I'm sure a lot of folks experience in real life, too, where friends change and grow apart due to various things. It's nice to see Windsong be the wise, comforting presence she is here.

Yes, we do tend to be blind to the changes in our own personality, since we're living in our own heads. And it is nice to have others point it out forus, when we need it.

I really felt for Rainpace, here -- it hurts so much to feel like your friends are excluding you, treating you differently when you don't think you're all that different. But I'm glad Windsong was there to show him that he IS different now, in good ways, ways that he wouldn't trade for anything. Yet it's still sad that that causes such distance between him and his friends. Even though he's gained so much that is good, in the past few years, it makes sense that he would feel bad for what he's lost.

This is just a lovely story! It's a pleasure to see Rainpace growing into his own here. I also enjoy seeing these two characters interacting, plus the visual image of little Glow sound asleep, clutching her daddy's hat and with a protective Bristlepelt wrapped around her is just too, too precious!

:( Poor Rainpace ... It's always hard when friends drift apart. (Plus, it makes me a bit afraid that Notch doesn't have his grounding influence any more 0.o.) But I liked Windsong's quiet wisdom here and that she was able to comfort him. Very nice piece!
