Now I'm curious as to what the sweet roots exactly WERE! Will the mothers be eating sweet potato soup or Borscht?? LOL!... It always fascinates me that each elf isn't in charge of a particular JOB, that they act on behalf of the tribe as the spirit moves them!

I love how you captured the atmosphere of a cold, clear winter day at the start of this! I could all but feel the cool, crisp air and hear the creaking of snow under my feet - not elfin feet of course, them being so sneaky and all ;)

Nice addition of the human plants; of course the elves would take a look at what the humans eat and try some themselves!

Also liked the "summary" of some of the tribe's cubs, comparing them to each other. I can sympathize a lot with Beetle's way of viewing and interacting with children, as it's very similar to my own. And the last comments by Willow made me smile.

I forget what exactly prompted the story, but reading through the comments makes me want to figure out how, exactly, they got hold of the sweetroots...

So cool to see how the human's have an impact on the elves in a positive way. I really like that our tribe seems already willing to learn from them.
Also good to see a story about the change that has been going on with Beetle and her thoughts/feelings for cubs. Looking forward to the day she herself has a wee one. ;)

I really like the hint, here, of how observing the humans for so many years has impacted the elves -- here, with the elves having obtained a crop that they didn't have before. It's a neat idea. I agree, I'd love to see the story behind the elves getting it, and growing it in the first place!

The detail with the antler is really interesting and the story about the sweetroots. I'd love to see a story about how they came into the elves possession at some point!! It did make me curious. Must have been a risky operation?
Otherwise. It's nice to read about Beetle growing more interested in cubs and how she regards them. I admit I still don't get why she had to sit out in the cold now but the interaction with Willow was neat.

Aw cute! Love the detail of the moose-antler shovel. It's great to see the little pieces of elf-life here - the ideas about them snatching sweetroots from the humans, the tools they use - and it's a wonderful background to have Beetle thinking about her changing attitudes towards cubs. :) This story brings some more depth and growth to her character for me.
