So nice to see another side of Notch! It's so easy to get lost in the cliché of the character sometimes. He seems more "human" now. Love it!

It's always great to see a piece of history filled in! I always wondered how Beauty had lost his eye. And I absolutely adore seeing wolves and elves bonding in an unusual way, as cute as bonding with a new cub of the pack is. Notch shows so much of his compassion and tenderness here which sometimes gets passed over for his cunning and scheming. It's great to know that his looking ahead paid off!

Awww, I knew Beauty was missing an eye, but I didn't know he was such an underdog! (Underwolf?) This is fantastic to see his story shown here, and how those two got together. I love how tender and wolf-stubborn Notch was, here! (And given that we now have Beauty around, I'm really glad he was!) I hope Beauty *does* make it to the top of the pack! :D

Beauty <3 Love that Notch gets to be in the right for once (at least according to me), nursing the wolf back to health instead of doing what True Edge thought was best.

I'm so glad to read the story of Beauty! It's great to see that a wolf, once run off, still stands a chance of finding an elf-friend. Notch's observation that Beauty has so muhc *try* is wonderful! :)

I really like the history of this story. How the wolf (Beauty) was basically kicked out of the pack, but now he has an elf-friend, which is great for this rag-a-muffin. Really touching how Notch stands his ground for this roughed up wolf. A great piece of history added to the collective!!

I really, really like seeing Notch in this light. Sometimes I think his mischievous side is portrayed too often, and we can forget that under it all he does have a good heart. This is a nice change, and a story that I personally had been interested to see!

A real beauty, for sure! Haha!
I really liked to see Notch's caring and tender side here, I guess there is not much more in the world that could nearly break his heart.

I too really like the way this showcases Notch's gambling side... but also that there is some empathy and generosity in him, which is something we don't see as often. And I was really struck by the idea of his recognizing the wolf as being from one of the tribe's past litters, even though the wolf clearly left the pack and struck out on his own. It emphasizes how much the elves pay attention to the comings and goings of the pack.

So that's the story of Beauty and Notch. It's not what I expected but yet I think it's very fitting. To see Notch like this is kinda odd but in a good way. We often see him as such a cunning and kinda manipulative guy, not as someone who nurtures others the way he dose here.
Still I do think he might think more ahead then it first seems.
I like how this thinking ahead an "outside the box" contrasts with TrueEdge here, who is more practical and dosn't quite look as deep into the matter as Notch dose. It's a gamble after all. He COULD waste his time.

I also liked the looks at Wolfriders not letting things going to waste but preying on carrion as well. It's something we as a culture often frown upon, but it's a very reasonable thing to do, if you can't just go and buy food and supplies, I think.
