Ow, right in the heart! Losing a close loved one is always such a painful experience you could choke, and that's clear in Thumbprint's actions here, even if she isn't saying much about her feelings. A beautiful, bittwersweet and heart-wrenching look at a woman who's lost her father and mentor both!

Interesting way to show how Thumbprints mourns and how she treasures the memory of her father. They were quite alike in their love for books and knowledge.
I also found it fascinating how flowery Inkstain's writing style was.

I love the quiet and somber grief in this story. We saw quite a bit of the relationship between Thumbprint and her father and this way for her to grief seems so fitting. It also, in my eyes, dose expand on Thumbprint and her motivations.
I also like how her father didn't only study history and made a complete life out of it but how now, it also keeps him alive. It's touching in a very different way.
Like Holly I also appreciate the mention of her mother, grieving her own way and hinting at different connections inside the family. It dose make Inkstain a very layered character, which is showing on so many levels here.

It's always great to get these reminders of how much depth and intellectualism troll culture has. It's really fitting to think that Inkstain still "lives on" through his written life's work. And from everything we know of Thumbprint, it makes sense she would relate to his passing that way. (But I liked the mention of his grieving wife, too. It hints at the idea of different loved ones missing him in different ways.)

I love the story-within-a-story here! What a great way to remember Thumbprint's father.

Elves and trolls live so long it's often surprising when one of them dies! I wonder what happened to InkStain? And how great that his daughter picked that particular book and read that particular line! The family legacy continues!
