I really feel for Newt in this story! Who hasn't felt left out?? And I'm not used to seeing the teenaged cubs as having their own crushes and romances yet. It's all so sweet!

This story pulled me in fast and kept me happy and curious. It is also so sweet to see into the younger friendships in the tribe.
And - If I read this right - Newt has a few opportunities for more than friendship in the future.

I really, really feel for Newt in this story. It's not like he has a lot of age-mates! Yes, he has many potential friends in the tribe, but that's not quite the same as the role his peers play in his life. It must be so hard to see them all taking to something that he just doesn't feel the same about, especially something so central to the tribe's life. Yet... it's true that the things he's learning are just as important, if not as flashy. I'm glad that he's able to make some peace with the fact that his bonds with his friends will remain close, despite their different paths.

This was fun to read! I like that it bookends interactions between Fadestar and Newt, while sandwiching a lot of other interactions. I, too, like that you show the woes of not being part of the hunt.

Seeing as hunting is such a big part of Wolfrider life, it was good to see a story exploring the possible woes of not wanting to partake in that, especially for someone so young. Friends growing apart is always painful, so the ending was very heart-warming :)

That was a great story. I really liked to have that insight in Newt's thoughts and feelings about his different path in life than that of his friends! It was very nice that you gave him time to work through this - this story was slow in the best sense possible, just very quiet and calm ^^. I especially liked his interaction with Cloudfern here; they seem to have more of a teacher-student relationship than the close father-son bond he shares with Greenweave but I think that's very fitting and nice, too.

This was a lot of fun to read. It's cool to see the little facets of holt life. Youngsters all eager and ready to show themselves capable, in a tight fellowship with each other and how Newt felt about missing out on part of that. But comes to realize that he's part of the gang whether he's out on the hunting adventures or not, his friends are still thinking of him and can't wait to come back and tell him all their news.Nicely done! (Crackle'd approve ;) )
