An interesting follow-up to Slag and Soupstone's parting! Tallcrag's worries are understandable, what with Thumbprint going "missing" often due to her, eh, other job. Also interesting to see Quartz as a small child!

This was interesting, to me it was another view of how Troll lives worked, no PDA, and usually family functions are a must. I also enjoyed seeing the inner working of Tallcrag's mind as he wondered a bit about Slag and Soupstone.

Cool so see and (finally) understand that there is actually a connection between the trolls in your stories, at least family-wise. ;)

Seems trolls have more in common with humans than elves, the latter happily sharing each other and each other's partners.

Ahhh. Not quite without a hint of drama I see. This was interesting. There is this mood, this brooding undertone running through this. I felt like I imagine Tallcrag dose. This suspicion you don't know if it's really there or not. The hint of a bitter taste in the mouth you want to ignore but can't completely.
The whole interaction is so normal but there IS this underlying tension. It's pulled of fantastically. And leaves you wondering as well. The circumstances are just so ... doubtful. With the story before this it's clear how Slag and Soupstone feel for each other and it's said that there are no deeper feelings shown between Slag and Thumbprint which gives this a a feel of his doubts being justified. It also makes one wonder WHAT Thumbprint dose. A lot of stuff going on here.
I like the touch of him checking over his daughter, comparing little details about her look to her mom and dad, looking for a proof or disproof of his fear. It feels like something real and makes the love he has for his daughter really heartwarming but at the same time it has a bitter aftertaste.
Good work on bringing the trolls to us Chris!

As others have said, I think seeing the small moment between Tallcrag and his daughter at the end really makes this story (and that last line...oh my T__T).

I just love all of the tense undercurrents here, especially at the beginning, when Tallcrag is so suspicious of even a social call by Thumbprint. I really feel for the guy here -- the idea that he loves his wife and child, even while he feels uncertain about his wife's loyalty.

Great story! I love the setting. I think it was a wonderful progression from viewing Tallcrag as a sort of grumpy, angry, terse character at the beginning, to seeing him so soft and vulnerable with his daughter at the end - and the love that makes that question such a worry. It's a great look at the day to day lives and interactions of these trolls, and the way their world may mirror ours more than the elves' would.

Can't but help feeling sympathetic for poor Tallcrag here. This story leaves me wanting to BEG for art of him and his family -- especially the mump Quartz and her newest dolly!
