Under My Wing

Aghhh!  This is quietly heartbreaking.  And very well-written, true to Nanny's character.

At least we now know she did marry and have a family and home of her own.

Raksha - Thank you. It's one of the few things I've written that still make me weepy.

I can only say again: how sad!

What strikes me most about this chapter/ficlet is that it's a brilliant lesson about how valuable it is to build up a special vocabulary within your story. The impact of the endearment in this story is so great, because it's been in this series almost from the beginning, characterizing the protagonist and her relationship with the children.

Really well done!

Juno - Thank you!

I wasn't consciously thinking about building a story-specific vocabulary - it just happened. :)  You know that she was calling him "duckling" until the last time she saw him (much to his amused chagrin, I'm sure) - and I'm sure there's some part of her that never quite believed he was an adult.
