I wonder when the other elves will know that Copper's knowledge/"knowledge" is REAL? I can't wait for the new elves to be unwrapped. I hope it is COPPER who remembers/"remembers" who they were and what happened to them! Maybe she will grow up to be the real Howlkeeper!

The interaction between the children was so very child-like, so to speak. Crackle being Crackle, bossy and enamored with telling stories - it was interesting to see her love of a good story get her in trouble, as that isn't really a skill generally associated with trouble making (well, lying is, but making of stories to entertain others isn't). Copper's reaction was spot on and felt realistic for a small cub who might not get the difference between making up stories and denying history. An intense read, all the way through!

This was a very cool story to read. I just love how the mood in this piece starts to shift at some point and get's gloomy and almost scary. Poor Copper. I really felt bad for her. She might not even be able to explain to herself what happened and how she knows. That's a lot of very frighting and horrifying knowledge for such a young cub.

Poor Crackle as well. There she is and wants to meet the request of not telling scary horror and her effort is shoot.
I have to be bias as well and say that I enjoyed the interaction between her and Newt. He as being her stern control to not get carried away here.

Very well written and as said the mood change and the outburst of Copper were very intense.

Wow that story was intense! The story within the story was intense... it was an awesome story.
It surprised me that Crackle was able to come up with a story that wasn't scary, I was honestly thinking at some point something terrible was going to happen.
I feel sad for Copper though. I can't imagine that story was something she wanted to hear, even without her thoughts or knowledge(?) about his hair and bones. I don't think anyone really wants to hear about family sacrificing themselves for you.

Awesome!!! The interaction between all kids and youths is just great. Wonderfully, wonderfully written!!!
And, oh my gosh, poor Copper! Did she really see this? No wonder she is how she is... :( I feel really sorry for her.
But I loved Crackles reaction to it at the end. Well, how could she know better?!
Awesome job!

I just have to say that i love it. Esspecially the interaction between Crackle and Newt. Also I love how Copper goes crazy, you can see how it influeds her. I feel a kind of sorry for her. But it is a beautiful story.

Confession time: I was looking for an excuse to use an old piece of Lone Oak Holt art of Lynx on horseback, and realized a manifestation of Copper's ability would be a great excuse! Except for the whole... well... the Fierce Ones killed him and ate him part... Thank you, Crackle, for your very vivid imagination. :)

Yes, my favorite part of this is probably the interaction between Newt and Crackle, and his attempts to remind her to follow the rules! And really, it's not quite fair, because Crackle's story isn't that scary. I see it as something that would otherwise be a way of giving the cubs a non-scary way to think about the Fierce Ones and what happened... if it weren't for Copper's disturbing knowledge and insistence that it's not right to change the story.

I love this story! I really like the glimpse of Copper's magic (as a reader we know that's what's happening, but we know that neither Crackle nor Copper herself know or understand it yet), and how it impacts Crackle's attempt at a tall tale. I *feel* really badly for Copper, though, and look forward to how she grows in understanding with regard to her abilities.

What I loved most about this was the interaction between Newt and Crackle. I find it kind of endearing that he has to reign her in, lest her urge to creep out the cubs rears its head. Interesting look into Copper's abilities, too!

Hehe, I just love Crackle's stories. They're so fun to read. Nice to see the conflict here, between the storyteller which is supposed to make a story which isn't scary, picking up a old story and changing it, and poor Copper, who KNOWS what happened, and don't apreciate this.

Thanks for this, Whit. :) It was a great way to make use of that old pic we both like (I don't even remember what inspired it, now. LOL - '88 was a long time ago). I love Copper's flip-out!

Wow, that was an intense story! I loved that despite the most important thing - Copper's magic and the impact it has on her - there was a lot of humour in it, too. Loved how Newt kept reminding Crackle to spare the scary stuff, and well, Crackle is just a delight like always! Poor Copper, though - having knowledge like that, no wonder she couldn't deal with Crackle making light of it ...
