Aw I love that Agate is more proud of Shimmer then mad or annoyed. I'm suprised in a way that they would keep so many momentos over the generations, it feels a little against the now.

This is some really lovely family interaction, helping to bring Agate to life in a wonderful way. I enjoy seeing young Starskimmer -- so often she is seen as either lover or mother, so it feels especially significant to see her here as a daughter.

I too really liked the idea here of the family tradition, a way to help wolfriders remember important things -- the tension between the Way (which would urge forgetting) and elvish values.

I love both the fact that Agate kept a box that could only be opened by a rock-shaper and that the family has the tradition of these keepsakes! A very touching moment between mother and daughter. I'm curious to find out if Starskimmer has kept up the tradition and if so who she includes of her fellow elves, other than her children.

This one made me teary eyed. Poor Agate loosing her first daughter.
I really, really liked how you interweaved the Holt's history and Shimmer's personal family history. The Bramble pendant is a lovely idea, especially with one side showing the plant and the other showing the elf.

This is a wonderful story full of emotion and layers and we can all relate so readily to the box of memories. Then you take it one step further by putting so many little hooks into it that could blossom into entire stories on their own. So tempting!

I like the idea with the box that only a rockshaper can open, but it's a sad thought that then, if all rockshapers would pass no one ever would be able to carefully open it again.

This seems so much like an old photo album that you rarely open because the memories might make you sad. A part of me says that it's not exactly the most healthy way to handle theses things and I did like that Starskimmer seemed to think similar to it by (gently) confronting her mother with it.

It also made me curious about Bramble a bit and what exactly happened when she died. There is the promise of another story in this.

This is a beautiful story, an I really like how there is a sense if sadness and wonder to it. I hope that you'll how us in art all the pieces in te collection. And I wonder if Starskimmer's ever shown it to Notch or Beetle.
