So where is Erf? Well, he'd gotten a special request from Santa to go and search for some new members for the reindeer team. On the way to the lake he encountered a Shoohoo (cousins to elves, fairies, Crickets and the like) named Peregrine, who suggested he wait by the not yet frozen over water and wait for the reindeer to come and drink. "But what about the little deer, already in my care left behind near the shed?" Erf asked. (He was totally unaware that Feenix and Rowan had already gone looking for him.)
"Oh, no worries," said Peregrine, "I'll send my twin Cricket cousins Wrascal and Wrebel to take care of them until you get back." And so he did.
They're ALL joining in the 8th Annual Elf Antics Linky Party at DL.Art.
