This is so emotional, so sad. It makes Owl that much more sympathetic, even in the madness he developed because of all the loss.

Oh, wow, what a strong and emotional story. Like Mel, it made me tear up. I have note realized how tragic some of your Ancestor's lives had been. And that history repeated itself... for identical reasons. So incredibly sad!!

This is heartbreaking :( The way you wrote it is so emotionally, talking right to my heart! I think I could understand why Owl became mad a little bit better now...If I were a healer and could not save my children and lifemate...thats just painful and horrible. But I love how strong Wren is ...she just went away to rescue her child...but that she did not have success in the end is so sad!!
It was interesting for me to read something about deceased characters, I looked up Wren and Owls realtionships, their children and Toss's past.

OPw... Ow.. This seriously made me tear up. It's written in such a down to earth voice that made it all the more painful I was doubtful of Toss action but this I can get behind 100%.
When reading this I was wondering "Wait.. didn't Wren... oh! oh..." It is all the more painful too know Owl couldn't save Reed either :(
It's a nice character piece for Wren and it makes the slip into insanity for owl yet more understandable. It's great how you managed to create such a feel of dire straits and hope that gives a small feel of what was going on during the winter sickness.

" Before he grew too weak he called out to Magpie, not even aware that his friend is dead."

This got me as well. It's so .. sad. I felt Wren's heart breaking for her son. Every line is strong here and used to great effect in my humble opinion. Great work.
