I am very glad to have found a link to this story! It’s very sweet and warm, and I feel a lot of love for the protagonists. Thank you so much!
TheLadyNovelist chapter 11 . 1/8/2022
I found this story about a year ago, and I come back every so often just in case it's been updated!

I know this is a translation, so I assume the original is unfinished as well? I've tried to find it, but haven't been successful. If it is finished, no pressure of course, but I would love to see the end of this story!

Please do know that you've done an excellent job keeping the prose Tolkien-esque, which is even more impressive considering you're working from German (?) into English. Well done!

Please continue this... It was progressing so nicely too!

Here's an idea:
Reveal that the drunkard she once loved turned neglectful and abusive after their marriage. She had put up with his abuse and justified his actions but after she had a daughter, and not a son like he wanted, he abused the daughter too seeing that it hurt her more than hurting her directly would. She tried many ways to make him stop: asking, begging, bribing, demanding, even threatening... She even considered escaping altogether. But when the day came for them to leave with what little stuff she had gathered, her husband found out. That's also when her daughter's chance at truly living came to an end. "It was all your fault." What he said haunted her and while he did not lay a hand on her after their daughter passed, he would repeat those words whenever she didn't do as she was told. Eventually she came to believe it and plotted to take her own life so her daughter won't be as lonely. Her husband of course had a say to that as well. He drunkenly laid his hands on her again. "If you miss that brat so much, then maybe I could make you another one. Will you just stop whining." And that's when she realized, her life was not her own and he never loved her at all. Then she got angry- at herself for allowing this, and at her husband for treating his wife like this. She decided she would end this once and for all and give him what he gave her daughter. Death.

The elf didn't know about all this but what he knew is that there were some mushrooms like the ones the reproachful brother said. Now coming back to his snowmaiden, he might either ask her why in an attempt to understand her side of the story too because he knows how much the brother was greedy and vile... or he could avoid that conversation knowing that his snowmaiden would never do such a thing without reason. He'd choose over curiosity and trust. Maybe there are other choices, but these are the ones that come to mind knowing about his elven quirks.

I was sucked into this story, until suddenly, without resolution... no "Next" button. Wait, what? Then I saw the story last updated in 2015. Oh.
Well, now I know how the elf feels: immersed in something wonderful that suddenly comes to a halt far too soon.

I am enjoying your story and look forward to its completion! The elf is loyal and your last sentence is most thought provoking.

oh drat. No more delightful chapters to read.
I hope there is soon more to come, I have really become quite fond of this story.
Artemis1000 chapter 10 . 6/28/2013
What a gorgeous, enchantingly sweet story! It has such a fairytale atmosphere to it and I love this perspective on the elves, from the common folk who fear them and have all kinds of terrible superstitions.
