No wonder Quick Fang adored her brother. He calls her personality/blood the "Wolf Gift"! I can also see why some elves didn't want to stay in the cocoons! Nice slice of life story!

Heartbreaking but wonderful! I love the tie-in about little Quick Fang's strong wolf-blood, a very clever use of that! And the tragedy of one person being stuck in time while the world around moves on... Yeah, this brought some tears to my eyes. I loved getting to see Whitestag's point of view of this after Flash's passing, as well as get a look at what she had thought of it.

Wow! I never thought of Quick Fang as being a source of hope in that particular way! This story WAS very intimate. And very bittersweet, given the fate of the lovemates. Poor Flash, to have to carry that feeling of guilt because it's HER line! And poor Whitestag, being the final one left alone...

I like how this works in Whitestag's view of his sister, who we've seen before he had a special relationship with; and it was really interesting to see the way Quick Fang's birth tied into giving him renewed hope. But this was also a good, if really poignant, look at what it's like to be the one left behind... and a reminder that the only happy-ending for this trio is that they all three were eventually united in death. (Which, at least for the elves, means something positive!)

This story was short, but it certainly packs in a lot of emotion. I really do feel for Whitestag here, he's been through a lot but still holds out hope for the future.

It's good to see this... Other side... of Whitestag. Very touching.

Oh wow, have to wipe away a tear.
You managed to create a very intimate and private moment so full of heart break and pain. Poor Whitestag and all others who had lovers, friends or family preserved in wrapstuff.

(Raincaller was wolfy - I'm sure that's who it's supposed to be, Tone. But you're right, there's no ancestor called "Rain")

Really enjoyed this story. It was so touching to read that Quick Fang gave Whitestag some hope of seeing Fletcher unwrapped and kicking once more. What I loved most was that there was aftermath after Fletcher, the endless grief and anticipitation.

I only have one nitpick. I checked the list of the deceased characters, and I could not find one called Rain. Are you sure you don't mean Raincaller or Raindrop?

That was a very strong, intimate moment, a wonderful glimpse at a really difficult situation. I love how Quick Fang made him find hope again, that's a new idea I hadn't thought of before. Very heartbreaking and touching.

This is so very poignant. You actually make me *like* Whitestag. This is just such a lovely and heartbreaking moment, very deftly handled.

You have such a hand for short but very strong ficlets; Chris. This said all that needed to be said and it dose feel very private.
It's heartbreaking in so many ways and it's good to see again how the wrapping was such a double-edged sword. I love the way he found hope aggain. It would explain why he felt for his sister even more.
