|Usually the "star showers" happen in late summer. This shows that the elves are so attuned to the seasons, the weather and cycles. They seamlessly use natural events to break up the daily grind. Sweet snapshot of Beetle!|

|What a cozy story! A great one to read in winter - I feel like both going out to watch the stars and bundling up with my family indoors to watch a good movie. Really gave me a sense of what winters must be like for our elves! And the showcase of some of Beetle's close relationships was a very nice thing to get to see :)|

|I really liked what a combination this is of the routine of winter, and a welcome change in routine for something special. I also liked how Beetle setting it up plays into her observation skills and scientific curiosity (remembering this is a yearly event, noticing some shooting stars but not enough for it to be the big meteor-shower climax). It's a good look both at her, and at her connections in the tribe, both friends and family, and that interconnectedness is also really great.|

|I, too, liked that you showed Beetle's method of thinking and of doing things here. It was nice of her to get all of her friends together.|
What I really liked, however, was how considerate you showed her being in many instances. That's really true to her character and was a really nice touch.

|Thank you for this, Amy! It's so beautiful! And what meant even more, which you had no way of knowing, was that my 4 year old and I had a night much like this, where we were out playing in the crisp winter night, and happened upon star showers, and camped out on a table watching them. So in addition to all the wonderful details, to seeing Beetle in her element, the tribe all together like this - there's the personal meaning for me :) Thank you!|

|What stood out to me here was the trail of thoughts of Beetle in the start. I liked how she is so self aware about her habits and how her mind worked here :) |
Another thing I like is how this reminded me on a story about Moss enjoying a meteor shower as a child. It's so neat that elves live that long to experience something like this twice :D
And it's such a nice winter atmosphere and such an nice thing to enjoy with family and friends. It's all so warm and fuzzy isn't it?
It's great to have Beetle organize and share this event with her tribe. She dose have this natural scientist feel about her.

|This is a very sweet little piece and fits so well with the winter holidays! I like all the little details about how cold it is in the tree dens and all the ways the elves use to deal with it.|
And I just love the idea of the elves celebrating a star shower! It reminds me of the Tsukimi tradition in Japan and similar =).
