Wow! That must have been terrifying! Good thing Spider got Ambergold. Poor Streak may have been left without some fingers if the sawtooth had escaped. I was so angry at Fishberry when she said she wasn't going to help, so selfish. Nicely written, very intense.

Damn, those things are scary! Lucky for the poor finger-loser that this was a time of a really strong, trained healer.

I'm glad to see more (and more) of the everyday dangers our elves face! I think it's easy too take it for granted that they live some idyllic lives, and that things usually go pretty smoothly. But dangers are everywhere... even w/ the fish they're trying to catch. Makes me glad I don't live anywhere w/ Pike in the rivers!

Ufff, what a bloody scene you threw at us. I am actually taken aback by Riversong' character she shows us here. The net? Seriously? Always thought of her as a caring person, but well, the passion for fishing (and fishing supplies) overweights everything else, obviously.
I like that you also show the not-so-nice sides of our ancestors.
I am also always astonished anew about what kind of perils our elves have to deal with every single day.
BTW, funny thing, that you are only one of many to choose ancestors for this Treasure Hunt clue so often.

Now that is one MEAN fish! And it goes so well with Rachel's picture. It's really unsettling to think about being able to LOSE some fingers... but it not being such a big deal, because a healer can reattach them. Well... if you get to them quickly enough, I guess! Yikes!

I don't normally think of fish as being scary, but I definitely had a wide-eyed expression as I was reading this! I also didn't realize that body parts could be healed back on, but it's lucky that Ambergold was around, otherwise Streak might not have been so fortunate! I'm glad for the chance to see a glimpse of some of these ancestors.

It was great that you tackled this from the persepective of doing an ancestor story! I just love seeing all these guys in action when it's not just to tie into our present day elves for the rest of the story. :) Poor Streak! Lucky they had Ambergold around!

Whoo, this was intense! I really loved how you made us feel the sense of panic and chaos on the riverside, and Ambergold really comes across as not only a good healer but also a level-headed and strong character. I enjoyed the look at so many of the ancestors we haven't seen much of before. And good to know Ambergold could heal the fingers back on just as that - it's a scary thought a fish, something we don't think of as dangerous normally, can cripple you as easily as that!

I loved this year's Treasure Hunt! It was a blast -- I loved getting a fresh creative challenge every night for 10 days straight! When we got this first clue, I must have spent half an hour or more watching pike-fishing videos on YouTube for research, and one hillbilly dude was drawling on a video about how a granddaddy sawtooth could nip off your fingers "neater than a junebug". I don't know what he was drinking or how neat a junebug is (or even if they have teeth), but that sparked this fic for me, when I figured elf fingers have to be easier eating than thick, stout hillbilly fingers! Then I pulled up the Deceased Elves page and saw Ambergold... and the story wrote itself in about 10 minutes. So Much Fun!!!

This was intense! I like how it delivers a sense of panic and rush. Just the feel you would have when something like this happened. Love how you characterized each of the elves here. Ambergold was a very levelheaded one and I like how differently the other young elves seem and how young compared to her.
And off. Fishes can be dangerous! Great atmosphere to this one, really!
