Finally, we see what the "plan" was all along!
And I must admit I am quite surprised. I have not thought of Notch being THAT ambitious and ruthless. He fooled me, too! I have to chew a bit on that, I guess.
This story is also a good reminder that wolfriders differ quite widely in their following of the Now (or the not following). Quite interesting!

It's nice to see this thread picked up again… and it works in a really interesting way when contrasted with Foxtail's development, such as in another recent story. Notch thinks he's very, very smart… but there's also the issue that he is taking Foxtail for granted in many ways (both underestimating her, and assuming that she is truly still on the same mental page that he is), and that itself kind of undercuts his self-congratulation. I feel like you can tell that he is in for some surprises. ;-) Looking forward to seeing this play out!

What a nice, wicked layer to Notch. He is quite the foresighted elf and it's an enjoyable trait that the tribe was missing till now. I like the idea of him being that cunning and manipulative to serve his own goals.
The way he revels in his own genius is quite amusing and a bit scary too.
He also seems quite full of himself here. I doubt that he's the only elf ever to think of this and I wonder if his security about his plan some when comes to bite him in the rear end. A nice, and interesting turn... and it made me remember the story where he and Foxtail build up their plan and the feeling he was stringing her along quite a bit.

Oh interesting! :) I was hooked with the Tagline, and the story definitely didn't disappoint! I was startled to find out how much he was planning alone - all this time I thought him and Foxtail were more in league. You do a wonderful job with the imagery throughout this story! So great! And Notch's voice comes across really true throughout it. It leaves me with wondering why this is his plan though! He hasn't struck me as being after power before, it really makes me wonder what he'd do if his plan does work out in the end...

This story made me feel a little "Ewg" towards Notch. I never thought of him as being devious. I guess this is what happens when a prankster becomes an adult but somehow doesn't "evolve"? So what would he do centuries from now if Cinder does become the heir? Would he trick Foxtail into that position somehow? Is he redeeming Blacksnake subconsciously? Wow, seriously, I've never seen this Dark Side!!
