Oh goodness, this story made me teary-eyed :( (but in a good way, of course!) I really feel for Birdcatcher having to make such a difficult decision more than once, and I'm glad you decided to explore that!

It's eerie to think of what our elves have had to suffer, living so long and waiting on a cure living-yet-gone loved ones. Birdcatcher's thoughts were like a punch right in the heart, in the best of ways.

It's always neat to see small nuances put into stories. Like the fact that Honey was in utero when Axehand was facing death, wrapping, or amputation. And to be reminded that Birdcatcher had to make the difficult decision more than once.

I really appreciate that you have picked up on the way Birdcatcher was hit twice by this difficult choice. It's really heart-wrenching that he tried to continue to have hope, or at least that he tried to continue to voice hope for the benefit of others, even if he didn't really believe in it himself. It's a great look at a truly melancholy side to his character.

I like how you connected this :) As stupid as it may sound, but that story reminded me, that Flash was not only Honey's half-sister but also Thornbow's... as weird as it is I tended to forget this connection ^^'

I liked also how you weaved in so many little things about Thornbow and I really liked how you showed how hard it must have been for Birdcatcher to make this decision again.
It really shows what a two-sided coin the wraping is. I mean we know it worked out in the end and that it was for the better but they enever knew.

I liked altogether the feel of families holding together in harsh times.

Lovely story. ^^

Ooooo! Joanne, you deserve props for a great connection here between events and storylines! I love how you're exploring more of Thornbow as a character through his network of family connections as well. Bravo!

This is a very clever loop of story telling you used here. I liked to see Honey's story from the POV of her closest family members. The despaired athmosphere, which hung over the whole Holt at the beginning was described very well.
