Good point, and I agree, BUT Jolly Elfsberry wasn't real subtle. With Jerrek, we're seeing something more like one of the wood elves in the village turning out to be Coyote, after hanging out and socializing with her and such. But you are right, I totally forgot about Jolly - Annie does (must) know about Coyote's masquerading power.
Which still seems like not enough to make her think of Loup in that connection, but who knows? I still think she's expecting him to show up as himself, or turn out to have been hiding somewhere as himself. Even hiding as an inanimate object might surprise her, given the way he is. I am still quite surprised that he's not only masquerading as a NP boy but also doing a good job of it, and not freaking out and breaking cover at the least provocation.
Thinking back on the early days of Renard with Annie, she first saw him in the body of someone else, though she didn't know that at first. Then, in the body of a stuffed toy, pretending to be inanimate. Then, when Zimmy called him out, as a shape-shifting toy. That's mainly what I was pointing out - she knows Loup doesn't have the power that let Renard do all of that, and may not quite get all of the other possibilities. Such as masquerading as someone that doesn't exist. But Jolly... Hmmm.
