I love seeing how internal Snowdrop is, how she almost over thinks things before even going to her Mother for what turned out to be some solid advice. I also liked seeing that she was suspicious of Kestrel switching to speaking rather then sending, I would have been too! Great work!

It's neat to see this written, and I'm glad we got to see Snowfall w/ her mother. It is always interesting to think about how things could be cleared up (in my mind) so easily by just sending, and yet how that level of openness is something that's guarded... If I remember correctly, its part of the reasoning behind soul names for wolfriders.
For Snowdrop's sake, I'm glad that things were reciprocated.
I'm also glad that Kestrel gave her the time to figure out for herself how she felt.

Even species that can send seem to have the same problems as us humans, the fear to be not liked enough or not to be good enough for someone.
One can perfectly understand Snowdrops fears here, with Kestrel being so much older. It is good to see Snowfall has not always been as wise as she is nowadays, but was a normal, sometimes insecure youth as well.

This was so sweet! And perfectly captures the feeling of "what if they don't like me back". I love that Kestrel had those feelings too, proving that age doesn't make that go away. Snowfall's interaction with Dreamberry was great too, it's always fun to get to know the family dynamics that have shaped our elves to what they are today better.

Snowfall comes across very young here, almost like a teenager. It's kinda funny actually. I do like to see her bound a bit with her mom. We saw her so often with her dad that it is good to be reassured that her relationship was equally as good to her mother. In Dreamberry I actually can see some of the patient and wisdom we later would associate with Snowfall herself.

The meeting with Kestrel was enlightening about how the glider herself feels and thinks. I liked it that she wanted to give Snowfall the room to think about what she wanted in peace while Snowfall waited for any sign to confirm her feelings. It seems a very real-world misunderstanding to have. Good to see they worked around it.

I don't know why but this made me wonder if there ever as any friction in those two's relationship. They are of such similar temper and mindset that it is hard to imagine them being mad with each other at all.

I love the chance, here, to see young Snowfall as less-than certain about her feelings or what to do. It's a great contrast with who she would become later, and it gives her a lot of dimension to see that she wasn't always confident and wise. ;-) I also like how it gives a chance for us to see some mother-daughter interaction, which we haven't really gotten to see very much, I feel. It makes Dreamberry feel like more of a real part of her daughter's life.

Ooh, that's a precious story. So glad to see this one written! It's beautiful - I love the way you write Snowdrop's uncertainty and Dreamberry's thoughtful advice. It's great the relationship between mother and daughter is so close. It's such an interesting look at a younger, less self-assured Snowdrop from how we usually see her, and the situation really resounds with real life, it just has that feel to it. And the ending definitely made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Lovely!
