I found it interesting how each Pevensie acted differently toward Dargrip (nice name, btw). Lucy with distrust and fear, Edmund with sincere intrest and forgiveness, Susan with gentleness, and Peter with...well, hate, I suppose.
Funny, because that really reflects on their titles. Well done! I also thought the message this fic gave (or at least the message I got from it) was basically that no matter what one has done, Aslan is still waiting with open arms. ;)
Great job. *adds to favs*
Lion be with you,

edmund really is the just one in this fic, i really like it. he gives the wolf a fair chance, and he was attacked by them too so it's not like the didn't do anything bad to him _

I love the exchange between Peter and Dargrip: You're the one who killed my captain!-And you're one of the ones who killed my Captain! Great way to characterize Peter's relationship with Aslan. In fact, your story has a lot to say about allegiances and obligations, as befits a story about such clannish animals as wolves. I love the parallel families of the Pevensies and the Wolves, as well as the comparison between the two leaders, Dargrip and the High King. And Lucy's last sentence is a knockout! Also wonderful is Edmund's observation that "Aslan would have sacrificed himself with or without the presence of any of us." A very nice story about an aspect of the Peaceable Kingdom that is Narnia.

“Dargrip, sir,” said Susan, a little nervously for she was not fond of Wolves, “I must confess that I have been eavesdropping. If you’ll excuse me for that, I’d like to tell you something. When I arrived in Narnia, I wasn’t excited about Aslan. His name gave me a wonderful feeling, but I was scared of meeting a Lion and I tried to, sort of, tone him down to a level where I could understand him. Of course when I saw him I knew I could never completely understand him. And I didn’t like a lot of what he said.
I like that line. Very good. I did find the story to be a little bit short, but it was good nonetheless. Well done.

Intriuging! I'm enjoying this a lot. Actually on a Narnian Site that I frequent, I am a Talking Wolf, which makes this story all the nicer for me. One thing though: Talking Beasts are said to be larger, not smaller, than animals of our world. But that's okay; nothing major.
Oh, and I think that if you enable your anonymous reviews more people will review this.

That is definitely the legacy of wolves.
Everything for the pack and nothing for one's self.

I like this story so far.
I'm glad I found something like this since I was somewhat less than happy how C.S. Lewis made out the wolves to be evil.
At least you have given a reason for them being so.
Keep up the great work, I can't wait.

This story is becoming more and more intriguing and meaningful. I love the way the Wolf begins to think of Aslan as caring about his people, too. I also love the point you made about Wolves acting on behalf of their families...which, after all, is true to the nature of Wolves in both worlds, and an honorable reason to make choices. Keep going! You're onto something very promising here.

Very insightful story! _
Interested to see what happens next!

I don't know why no one else has reviewed this. Good for you for updating it anyway! Though your style is a bit rough around the edges, you develop your characters well and are laying out an interesting situation here. In real nature, wolves are noble, scrupulous beasts, so I was hoping to see you give yours a redeeming characteristic or two. Reading ahead, I see I won't be disappointed. (I wonder whether you've read Jean Craighead George's wonderful children's trilogy about wolves, Julie of the Wolves, Julie, and Julie's Wolf Pack, by the way.) One thing this story has the potential of doing is showing how the Pevensies had to learn to be Kings and Queens of everyone, not necessarily just the species they liked right away. Keep going! It's getting very intriguing.
