An interesting story. Quick Fang and Suddendusk are so different from each other, one has to wonder after whom Rill will be come more! Very interesting dynamic here with Rill thinking too much and Quick Fang acting more on instinct. And her parenting style is interesting! Not very warm but she's definitely a loving mother to her son!
I liked the part best when Rill realises that his mother had to learn too as a cub and of course, how it gives him a tad more self-assurance in the end. I hope for him that he caught the scent of the next animal swift enough!

This was a sweet look at Mother and Son. I definitely agree that we don't see enough of them together. I appreciated how it was hard for Quick Fang to talk to Rill about things. And how poor Rill seems to be favoring his elvish side a bit more during this, thus having a harder time hunting by instinct.

I agree with what most said. I like seeing a story about mother and son here for a change. We seem to see much much of Suddendusk and Rill then QuickFang and Rill.
It's also interesting to see how Rill deals with having parents so different for each other and trying to figure out where he stands.
I likes the lesson his mother gave him in the end. A very true one! Altogether lovely and it makes me curious to see more of this pair.
Also liked the moment where QuickFang seemed worried for a moment. I like to interpret this as her fearing the moment to talk this out because she knows she's not good at it! It's a nice addition to the character in regards to her being such a confident huntress but still a bit insecure with words.

I really enjoyed seeing this mother/son outing between these two. Quick Fang is such a unique elf, and it's nice to see how that affects her as a mother. As others pointed out, I'm not sure we've such that much of these two by themselves, so kudos for tackling that!

I really liked that this story contrasted the way Rill is developing into such a copy of his father, with his mother's much more direct and simple and earthy viewpoint on things. It must be a real challenge for both of them to relate to each other, and I liked seeing that explored here.

I love seeing these two characters together, but I'll confess -- any time Quick Fang is verbally carrying a story, I'm left a little disappointed. She always feels to me like she should be *doing* and *showing* instead of talking things out.

I'm really happy to see Quick Fang in a maternal role, while still being a huntress. Also, I thought Rill was fantastically written. I think he probably has the best character development of the elf children so far. Really nice!

You know, I actually think we have seen very little of Rill and Quick Fang in stories before, mostly he's either with the other cubs or with Suddendusk ... So this was great to see! I really liked how torn between the different ways of his parents Rill seemed to be here, and though he seems to go more into his father's direction right now, Quick Fang handled the issue well, so I hope she can teach him a thing or two about following his instincts. I loved the teasing at the end. I'd love to see more like this!

Great look at Rill and Quick Fang here! It's a really interesting relationship you show here. I really enjoy seeing this aspect of it. Rill's frustration comes across perfectly, and I love his mother's response, especially the gentle teasing at the end. It's good to see these two together! I'd love to see more of this, and see if Rill can tap into Quick Fang's way of looking at the world or if he ends up going more with a Suddendusk style.... or something else altogether. Great sense of promise for the boy...
