Blacksnake plays the role of the wise elder in this one! So unlike him, and Willow of all people to listen to him is just awesome! So glad Windburn allows her to live her life! Her being cooped up in the Holt was too painful. It's like forcing an outdoor cat to stay inside. Great job!

I enjoyed finally getting to tackle this story, and use it to reflect on the fact that the whole Healer Storyline and the problems that arose from it had many origins, not just the actions of one person. In this case, it took mistakes on the part of many people, and it's good to remember that, and acknowledge it. Plus, it struck me that it was something that Willow needed to explicitly hear, and that by taking on too much of the blame, she was closing herself off from considering some other very important factors.

A thing I liked seeing unfold here is, how things in live can get tangled up so much that you don't see another way until someone steps back and takes a look from above so to say.

I do like how here the flaws of single characters are pointed out but in a way I could fully sympathies with them, because there were not head on, but woven under in events that build up.
Willow's way of thinking she knows what others will say is understandable if you look not only at the helar storyline but all her stories. It's so nice to see this pay off. She was one of the wild irresponsible pranksters. Expatriation on how people react on her and she reacts on people have been build up on both sides. It's perfectly comprehensible why things went the way they did.

This story did remind me on that with the talk in the berry field. As much for Willow's side as for WInburn's. That was rather fascinating.

I like how Blacksnake is this elf who dose analyse the situation and looks from it from far above to see where the problem started. It's a very good quality in him. I also like how he dose feel he failed Willow but still has this edge ion him that he points the responsibility back to her as well.

ANd finally I do like to see Windburn learning here as well. It was very good to see this story being done the way it was. A thing I really like at RTH is how much time people take in developing such events.

Thanks for this and I should stop rambling here ^^'

This was a pleasure to read. I like seeing how wise Blacksnake is, and how invested he is in helping the tribe as a whole, through helping others. I also appreciated reading his insight into his actions.

I'm very much enjoying this storyline, especially the bonding between Willow and Blacksnake. Most stories I've read featuring Blacksnake have portrayed his grumpy no-nonsense side more prominently than his giving-good-advice-side. It's always interesting to see more sides of a character; makes them more three-dimensional. And Willow's character development (not to mention Windburn's) is fascinating!

I really enjoy historical and pivotal stories like this. It does a lot to add to the knowledge of the various charactes and why they are the way they are. I enjoyed looking at WIllows plight through Blacksnake's eyes and then through Windburn. Great interaction and story telling!
