Interesting way to learn one's soul name, along with a nice father-son bonding. Very interesting read :)

I remember the first time I read this story, I thought it was just going to be a sweet father/son fishing story, so it was a total shock to see Newt find his soul-name by the end. What a happy surprise! I can just imagine Greenweave's reaction once Newt tells him what happened :)

Wow, what an unexpected end! Great idea and after second thought total logically to find your Self when challenged with a life-threatening situation.

This seemed like such a fitting way for Newt to find his soul-name -- almost as a reward for a challenge he had to overcome, when the world narrowed down to just him and the fish and his own will to survive. Really nice piece!

It makes sense to me that one would discover a soul-name only when pushed outside of normal experiences. I admire Newt's ability to keep his head it what would be a very scary experience, AND come out of it that much wiser.

YAYYYY! :) This was a fun ride of a read. :) I was worried so much for Newt, wondering what was going to happen, and then! WOW> :) Glad that he was able to relax and get himself untangled (in more way than one!)

This is fun story, and a wonderful moment for Newt as well! I really appreciate that the moment of high drama doesn't HAVE to be high drama. Very nice work!

That was a really great way for Newt to find his soul name - I agree that it was a bit more dramatic than I probably would have imagined for Newt, but it was nevertheless very fitting. But poor Greenweave must have gotten quite the shock ...

Thank you so much for this Mike :) It's really great what you did with the little premise I gave you for this story.
I do enjoy how differently the elves find their soulname and this maybe was a more dramatic way but I like the reasoning behind. it. The inner battle that leads to find his nature and that he was more in touch with his inner wolf here for once.
Poor Greenewave through. He must have had a heart attack seeing this! And you bet this fish will be imprinted in Newt's mind from now on!

I really enjoyed this. I like seeing how some elves come to know their soul names, its unique for each of them. :) I have to say though, Newt probably wasn't expecting that big of a catch when he went after the fish! It was a great look at his discovery.
