I think we should design a line of clothes based on the elves' fashion. I LOVE that COAT! *WANT!!*

Anyway, it was nice to see a Moss/Crackle bonding moment! Windburn punishing her was expected and predictable, but so glad something good came of it!

I like Crackle in the role as an apprentice!

I'm so glad you wrote this as a follow-up to that great graphic-story! It's wonderful to get to see the aftermath of that, and that Crackle doesn't fully get away with her recklessness, either. But what I liked best about this is that although she has to endure some consequences, at the same time, that opens other new doors for her. In the end, it doesn't seem like just a punishment at all, and it will be great to see Crackle adding this new direction to her life.

I do love how this hunt of Crackle dose lead her to a place she might not have seen herself in and that she actually found some "joy" in her punishment. I think it was a good way to teach her that there is more then hunting to keep the tribe alive.

Also like how eager Winburn seemed to use the word "cub" as often as possible to, as I interpreted it, emphasize that her kill didn't make her an adult, as she wished to be.

The interaction between Moss and Crackle is always such a delight. It's good to see Crackle growing up a little and seeing her mistakes but I still see the sense of the "act first then think" in her which is good. It will show if she can balance this :)

Lovely follow up. Lovely story.

Thank you Holly, for linking me to this! I was wondering what punishment Crackle would end up getting and this felt very justified. Especially love Moss making her clothes from her first deer hide and the mittens Crackle thought up for Copper!

I'm glad to see the maturity developing in Crackle, but also that she's still the light-hearted, free spirit! :) And Moss is so good for her... I really like that he made her a coat out of the deer hide. :)

Love the title you've chosen for this - the play on words is so great! I, too, like seeing how Crackle is growing from a mischievous little girl into a more responsible - and thoughtful - teen, and that she's learning from her mistakes along the way.

It's great to see the evolution of Crackle. Where once she would have tried to trick her way out of the boring work, now she's taking responsibility for what she needs to do, and maybe even enjoying it a little.
