Each generation is different, too. This crop of cubs might be more active than the preceding ones. It also shows Beetle remembering that she's still not great with youngsters. Snowfall, for instance, would masterfully make everything alright. Arts and crafts to the rescue!!

Oh, I love the idea that that story stuck with Beetle so long and she wanted to share it with the cubs! ^_^ I do feel for her, though! That's tough, not to get the reaction you're looking for when you share something like this. I agree, the cubs all came out with their distinct personalities here! So adorable. :)

Sharing nostalgic things with other people is never a guaranteed success; poor Beetle. I love the solution at the end, bringing a stop to the downward spiral in a very hopeful way, so to speak :)

I deeply feel for Beetle here, lol! Among other things, it really emphasizes the individuality of the current crop of kids, and how Beetle was such a different child when she was that young. But it really does hint at that universal truth -- the stories we hear (or read) in childhood are especially important to us, in ways that are hard to explain to others, and impossible to get them to experience in exaclty the same way.

I really love reading about all the tribe's current cubs together - they invariably get up to some crazy antics! I bet Beetle never expected a reaction like that when she thought to tell this story to them!

I get a blast out of listening to little kids tells stories -- and listening to them deconstruct the stories they have been told. I also really enjoy how all four of the tribe's cubs have clear and distinct personalities -- that makes them so much fun to write for!

Oh my, I guess everyone knows the feeling of disappointment when you realize others do not value your little treasures and "gems" as much as you do. You created a great and lovely sequel to Angie's story. Most of all I liked to see the cub's reaction, which were each so fitting for their character (and age). And a "Horray" to Cinder, the peace-maker. He is soo good with people and dealing with difficult situations on an intuitive level; he is not aware of that himself. He would make a great chief one day (but, psst, don't tell Foxtail I mentioned that).

Oh, this was such a nice continuation of the original story! Poor Beetle, I know how hard it is to share something that means a lot to you, only to discover the others don't get what it means to you. But I loved that she found a way to "save" her story and make the children enjoy it, too! I also really liked how the children's character comes across in their reactions to the story!

I really feel for Beetle here. It can be so hard to share something you love and not get the response you expect. I'm glad the situation was able to be salvaged, and the children will have some good memories associated with the story as well.

This is such a fun, funny story! I enjoy watching Beetle try to be comfortable with cubs, and with telling a story, and how the cubs basically take her down! I also appreciate you putting her in her element at the end, showing that she canbe good with them when she is sharing herself wih them - Beetle has lots to offer cubs, jut not by way of storytelling :)

This made me laugh. Hard. Poor Beetle. I really felt with her here. I also really like how differently the cubs reacted to the story and how much character came through. Rill is such a "boy" here and I like how caring Cinder comes across too. Glow was like you'd imagione a little girl and Copper seems to be the one down with her feet firmly on the ground.
I did encounter all of these children at one point in my live which is what makes this so enjoyable I think. ^^

Good They could save the day nevertheless in the end XD
