Oooh, Thumbprint is turing into quite the intriguer! Or, well, has been one for a long while at this point. It's interesting to see her friendship with Trickleclaw develop at the same time as her influence and seeming distance over other trolls grows. I'm not sure how emotionally invested she is in other trolls at this point in her life, but she definitely seems invested in who is in what position - and keeping her own position.

This was fantastically written - the detail of what she was writing was so incredible (especially to me, b/c I'm usually not that detailed). I, too, found myself saying, "Wait a minute, Trickleclaw could do more than that!" until the end, when you reveal that she's limiting others' knowledge. My question is.... why?? :)

Haha, the first scientific paragraphs made me laugh... but be assured not due to lack of credibility. Is just sounded so much like straight out of one of the text books or papers I had to read once.
I really liked the glimpse into the troll's relationship to her Preserver. Those two are close, aren't they?!

This is very interesting! The Troll Society really works on another scale than the Holt, no? I like this insight in the intrigues and secretiveness between the different houses. And i wonder a bit why exactly the preserver's abilities have to be kept quiet so hard...

Nice idea. It's a really interesting look at Thumbprint, who comes across as kind and maternal "in person" writing something deliberately misleading and rather sneakily. Really comes off as a scientific analysis. Trickleclaw is adorably childlike; and you really know how to emphasize that (especially with the crayons!) rather than it being treated as more of an intelligent bug. Interesting!!

Ha, this was so cleverly done! I really like the structure you built up here - great idea and very well executed! And the glimpses at the troll society are once again very intriguing. So different from the elves ...

The interaction between Trickleclaw and Thumbprint was so sweet - they really give the impression of good friends, and Trickleclaw is so cute with its crayons. Really hope to see more of those two!

*grin* Crayons! Way too adorable. I'm with Holly -- I was finding myself going 'what? what?' HUNDREDS?!' but then it all became clear. ;) I really like how you show the Troll society, and all the intrigue that goes right along with it. :P And the way you interspersed the narration with bits of the Preserver wrapstuff documentation turned out brilliantly. :)

I really enjoyed seeing Thumbprint's scientific method here. :) As usual, such a contrast with the elves. But I also liked reading along with the notes she was making, and starting to say to myself, "wait a minute, that doesn't sound accurate..." only to get to the end and find out that no, it's not, and that's on purpose. Very wily. :)

I'm not sure I understood everything Thumbprint wrote down. O_o It did read a lot like a paper, which I think is fully on purpose. In that case it was done very well( as far as I as a not native speaker can say)
I also liked the glimpses into the society of the trolls here again. The idea of someone dying soon and leaving a position open seems strange compared to the elves, who have such a different way to view those things.

The details here are great and Tickleclaw borders on adorable here. The interaction between the two is very intriguing and Thumbprint really has something to her that makes her as much charismatic as dangerous.
