After a few centuries of living, I can see how you would become detached from the whole scene. And to be so accepting!

To answer Melanie's much-earlier comment, I think that Rockbite was viewed as a real contender for the new alpha-male position. I think that over so much time, seeing wolf-friends come and go, and seeing wolves become alphas and then be supplanted by the next generation, the elves wouldn't expect the wolves to pay any attention to familial relationships amongst their elf-friends. In that moment, who Rockbite's or Cubsitter's elf was, wouldn't matter at all to the new alpha female. Her choice isn't a sentimental one.

I agree that it's good to see this moment, from the elves' perspective. They have sentiment, in a way that the wolves don't -- and to be a wolfrider means accepting that. It was good to see the acceptance here, as well as to see a moment between Kestrel and her son Bowflight; we haven't gotten to see that much.

In so little words, you captured emotions and a very big part of our elves' world. I often forget that the wolf pack probably should have an RPG of its own. It's nice to get a little insight in wolf behaviour, even if it doesn't always end well.

I always wondered how hard it must be to live "The Way" with the wolf pack and their dominance rules. Must be hard to lose a wolf through the fangs of another one.... and to accept this as silently and logical as Kestrel is doing it here.

What I think is interesting here is that all wolves that are mentioned are or were wolffriends of the same elfin family. How often do this happen?

I like the quiet moment between mother and son and it shows how a wolfrider can grieve a while after the death of his wolffriend, even when they know it's the Way.

This is really interesting- I didn't know Pathmarks she-wolf was just a family theme - did not choose Bowflights Rockbite and killed his grandmothers wolffriend Mudpelt.
Its a really sweet moment between Mother and son, Bowflight comforting his mother, and I love Kestrels last sentences.

Interesting moment here. The moment of choice. Am I right to assume that there was a real chance that Rockbite was the next Alpha male? Or did they just want to see if Moonmist picks Bowflight's wolf?
