Even among the elves, "Moms are just so UNCOOL!!" LOL! I have an Otter specimen here at my house. God forbid I do anything awesome, like kill a bear! Even if DS is bleeding and half dead, oh, the mortification! ;)

I really liked seeing Starskimmer as a hunter for a change. One can forget that she can handle weapons as naturally as her brewing pot. And like every mother she can grow over herself when one of her kids is in danger.
Seeing Otter as the annoying, over-confident youngster he is, was fun, too.

Seeing Starskimmer and Otter out hunting together was both sweet and interesting. I haven't read many stories in which Starskimmer have gone hunting at all, so getting a look at that side of her was new. Her saving Otter from the bear was both thrilling and impressive and the way she barely paid attention to the fact that she'd killed it really emphasized how scared she was for Otter.

Woot for parental instincts!

I also enjoyed seeing Starskimmer as a huntress here. It's a nice reminder that all the wolfriders should have at least basic skills in that craft. The interaction here was great. Otter really has the attribute of a young Teen here especially with this attribute to think he's so way ahead already XD
Also like how in his shock he completely dismisses what just had happened aside "My mom did the better shot!" It made me laugh and remember so many times when after an accident people did notice and ask for the most unfitting things for the situation.

Lovely work on this. Great interaction between mother and son (And yes seriously what's up with mothers and bears in this tribe?)

This story was amazing! You can really see the power a mother gets when her child is in danger. Though it does make me laugh that all Otter can think about is that Starskimmer got the shot instead of him, not the fact that she just saved his hide.

Whitney is fantastic to write with! :) This was a lot of fun... and I enjoyed showing Starskimmer doing something different.

The action in this story is great, but what I like even more is the way the details expand our view of the characters while also reinforcing what we know of them. So it's great to see Starskimmer as a huntress, even if not a crack shot, because that feels like a new view of her... but I also love that in the aftermath of this amazing feat, she really doesn't care very much about the accomplishment, she just cares about the result, that she saved her boy. ("I shot it, I guess"? lol!) But I also just liked that Starskimmer could see what direction her son's interests were developing in, so she arranges this chance to bond with him over something he's really into -- a very perceptive mother! And Otter -- what a perfect specimen of teenage boy! I love the way he puts his finger on the problem that no matter what, his mother's feat is what people are going to be talking about for a while, and he might as well not even try. ;-)

Lyn is a joy to work with! And I just have to confess that we swiped this scenario from a recent edition of "Reader's Digest" magazine. You can find inspiration ANYWHERE!

Seriously, what's it with mothers and bears in this holt :p?

This was a great read! I really loved seeing Starskimmer as a huntress - I know that most, if not all of our elves have at least a basic knowledge in hunting but it's still not something I think of first when I think of Starskimmer - and seeing her and Otter together. Otter is so delightfully teenage-boy here, with his boasts and "Don't call me that!", hehe :). And yeah, go Starskimmer for keeping your baby boy safe!
