You have such a feel for the trolls, how their world works, and even going so far as creating text from their libraries. I can well imagine how those words might impact things once contact resumes between trolls and elves. Trust might be long and hard won.

I also wonder what might happen should a jealous other choose to mess up someone's work... with no safes around... Yikes!

Wow! Apprenticeships especially with your eventual in-law seems really intense. rewriting books every time they wear out seems like a giant pain.

Man, those trolls have whole libraries containing propaganda against the elves. No wonder their brains cannot be changed that easily.
One can easily tell how big a book-lover Thumbprint is. No matter how hard and tedious the work, she loves was she does... even if it is just a method to gain even more knowledge.

I eat up all new info about the River Twine trolls like chocolate and this piece was delicious! The fact that they have books, litteraty criticism, academic systems, and so on make them a wonderful contrast to our elves (as well as the canon trolls). I'm really curious about their exact history with the High Ones, but that's so far in the past we'll probably never know for sure how things went down.

It's really fascinating how different the lives of the trolls are from those of our elves. It's somehow closer to our own world, and I can sympathize with Thumbprint - spending hours writing and studying under the watchful eye of a tutor or superior is very hard. I really liked the references to the elves, too. Makes you wonder what the truth is, because I'm sure the elves' recollection is something else entirely!

I like how, even in the midst of giving us a glimpse of what life can be like for a scholar-troll, you also manage to salt in more reminders of the particular prejudices the trolls have against the elves. That always provides a nicely creepy undertone to things! It also makes me wonder if this is before Thumbprint got involved with Trickleclaw -- I'm suspecting, yes.

Interesting look again into the trolls lives and especially Thumbprint here. I feel for her. Sitting all day and writing under the watchful eyes of a superior is HARD. It drains you.. I know I had moments like this and like her I welcomed every change of pace!

I do enjoy these troll stories but I can't help but miss One-Leg a lot whenever I read one ^^' As much as these stories fascinate me and entertain me they do feel a bit like a spin-off from the holt. Yeah stuff is referenced but it seems like it's own little series.

That's not necessarily bad but it makes me wish for some One-Leg (or other elf related stories) from your pen again. Just to mix it up again ^^
