That is how animals are. Ultimately tender with their cubs, but will bite your hand off before you know it! This was a great story because as I was reading, all I could picture was a wolf, not an elf. The wolf side is that strong!!

It's interesting to see Quick Fang as a new mother. I like that she's acknowledging that she has changed a bit after her Recognition with Suddendusk. But she still stays the wolfy Quick Fang. I love that she growled at Starskimmer, it's entirely in her character. But I like to think that her Recognition made her a bit more "elfin".

Of course she growled at the midwife! How could she note?! :D
I found it very interesting to see into Quick-Fangs head and learn about the blooming of motherly feelings. You did a great job to keep them close to wolfish thoughts (at least that is what I imagined). I also found it curious that she excluded Suddendusk completely in her thoughts.

It's interesting to see how motherhood has changed and yet not changed Quick Fang. Her interaction with baby Rill was sweet, especially the sending her favorite things at the end.

Love this introspective look at the push and pull between the two sides of Quick Fang's nature! Little touches are wonderful -- her annoyance at "forward thinking", but my favorite bit is how very literal she is, with her almost irritated thought that Rill doesn't have his father's nose, it was Rill's nose alone. That's a great illustration of one facet of her wolfy-ness.

Hee hee... I love how little Rill pulls on Quick Fang's elfish side a bit more... and a little more out of the Now. :) This was lovely, and a good example of how thoughts change some after the birth of a baby.

This was a lovely take on QuickFang. It's almost scary how... tender and soft she appears here without loosing herself in it. She's clearly still Quick Fang but I agree with what Mareike said: The whole experience changed her and will change her if she likes it or not. I love how her thoughts are coming out here too. The story has such an reflective and musing, cozy, fuzzy warm atmosphere.
It kinda shows what a complex character QuickFang can be despite being so "simple"

Aww, this is so lovely! We haven't seen much about Quick Fang's thoughts about being a mother before, and this is such a nice little look at it.
I love how she catches her at thinking "forward thoughts" and is annoyed by it. I guess that's what being a mother means - you start to worry and hope a lot. And I'm very glad to see that despite her initial reaction to the Recognition, she is feeling comfortable in her bond with her son now!
