Interesting look in how Foxtails mind works. I like her determination to make a bond with Red Paw. But I'm happy that this didn't work out as she thought! Briarfoot is a much better bond-wolf for her, especially because she's a playful wolf, much like Foxtail herself.

I can only echo what others have already said. I like the way this story goes. Mike you do have a hand for wolf and hunting stories!
I do enjoy the look at Foxtail here as well. Her mind is set on a goal she wants to achieve and clearly her reasons are not the right once. While she admired Red Paw, you get the feeling part of her thinks of him almost as an assessor, something to bust her ego. It's handled well, too! She might think that way but she in no point in the story comes across as unlikable!
The ending therefore is really neat. It shows that even if things don't turn out the way one wants, that's not necessarily a bad thing. In this case, to the contrary! :)

I agree with Holly here: it definitely is good to see that Foxtail cannot wrap everyone around her finger for a change. :D And I also like that this story shows once again how much the wolves have a say in the bonding process with an elf.

This just goes to prove that Foxtail so rarely knows what is best for her - even when it comes to something as seemingly simple as a wolf friend. I enjoy the nuances and the seriousness with which Foxtail approaches Red Paw. It's clearly important to her but, thankfully, she learns to bend in the right direction at the end. Thank you!

I really liked the misdirection in this story -- and how it emphasizes that the wolves are as much involved in the choice of a new friend as the elves are. It's probably good for Foxtail that she doesn't always get what she wants, too. ;-)

This is an interesting look at another unusual wolf bonding story, different from the sort of natural bonds that I tend to imagine. I'm definitely wondering if the ambition-spoiled plans (like her attempt to bond to Red Paw) and her subsequent lure back to play will be foreshadowing anything in particular for her character. It's good to see that she can still accept a bit of fun, even if it won't look at good with her! ;)
