Taking care of the orphaned bear cubs is such an elfin thing to do! Most people wouldn't even think of it, much less do it! I wonder if Notch's trick would work in real life. I'd be nervous the other mother would try to kill it. I really enjoyed reading this one, thank you!

I remember being stuck on this, and so appreciate your help and collaboration with this! I don't know that it would have gotten finished without you. I do remember the idea being sparked by the story of Easysinger's death. I'm God it came together, and that this could show more of Vhiciry as a character as well as her relationship to windburn

I really liked how this story came out in the end (disclosure: I wrote on the first scene, but Lyn wrote most of it). I like that it is sympathetic towards Chicory's obsession with the bear-cubs, but at the same time, doesn't hesitate to point out all the ways in which it's a bad idea. I think it's all the stronger for showing that her actions, too, were flawed, even if for understandable reasons.

Such an excellent follow-up to Blacksnake's actions after Easysinger's death! It was great to see the reaction from Chicory, to get to know her side of the story so to speak. A gripping story all in all and I was very grateful for the ending because the rest of the story was heartbreaking.

I really can't thank you enough for this story! It's totally beautiful. :) It was so incredibly heartwarming to see the support the tribe gives each other in times of grief like this, from Farscout's loyal friendship with Blacksnake, to Windburn and Notch being there for Chicory, and each in his own way. :) Come to think of it, I love how Windburn ended up becoming the steady rock for Chicory that her father wasn't able to be for her just then. And I just adore how Notch was supportive BY being a schemer. ;) As for the bears -- I completely understand Chicory's crazy obsession, and the need to focus on *something*, *anything* to anchor herself. I love this whole story! :D

This was very touching and a great look at how Chicory dealt with her grief. My favourite part was probably the interaction between her and Blacksnake - I can well imagine this feeling of wanting your father to be the strong, reliable rock for you, only to find that he is much too wrapped up in his own grief to be able to do that. Her caring for the bear cubs was touching and made sense in a twisted way though I agree with Windburn and Notch that it was foolish. I liked that they both accepted it as a way for her to deal with her grief and helped her nevertheless.

Chicory really seems to have a close bound with bears. From the top of my head, this is the third story featuring her with bears ;) Funny how such things go sometimes.
At any rate, this was a very interesting read. The idea behind it is great and dose make a lot of sense seen from the perspective of a grief-struck person, yet as touching as it was, I do have to say, I agree with Winburn here. It is foolish and dangerous, as much as for Chicory herself as for the whole tribe (I remember a report a few years before of a fast food restaurant having troubles with bears because costumers feed them burgers...)

I did like all the glimpses of interaction here. It's also funny that Chicory always seemed to have the tendency to rebel against her brother's orders :P
Notch, once again, just shows how sharp he is.
All in all I really enjoyed the read. It's always nice to see especially Winburn interacting with his sister and not only as chief but as a brother.
