It had been a few days since her exile from WinterClan and Spiderclaw had made her way down the mountain and into SummerClan territory. She had made good progress in her travel as she had heard many rumours about SummerClan's leadership situation. The black warrior had the idea that she could outright challenge a leader this time, especially now that she up against the smaller SummerClan cats.

More walking had brought her into the heart of the Clan's territory. Now she had to wait, and as she did, Spiderclaw realised that she would have to make sure at least some of SummerClan shared the idea that their leader was weaker than her. #chicks =trouble 22:33 Tue Jan 9 2018

Waspstar sat watching as her litter, still fairly young apprentices, fooled around. Skinkfang was headed out with a small patrol, Privetshade as well. But I am the Chosen One 22:48, January 9, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw decided that if she was going to go through with her plan, she may as well keep her strength up. The large warrior started hunting, finding it somewhat difficult due to the open plains and the simple fact that she definitely wasn't the lightest nor fastest cat around due to her size. #chicks =trouble 22:53 Tue Jan 9 2018

Privetshade and Skinkfang led the patrol from the SummerClan camp out to the borders to freshen them before they hunted. But I am the Chosen One 00:00, January 10, 2018 (UTC)

Not long into her hunt, Spiderclaw scented not prey but a SummerClan patrol. Perfect, perhaps they'll take me back to camp? I can't see these puny warriors chasing me off. The black warrior followed the patrol as close as she could, but, it seemed that she wasn't use to the terrain and stepped on a twig. It snapped in half with a loud crack and Spiderclaw cursed internally. She had lost the upper hand for the time being. #chicks =trouble 03:11 Wed Jan 10 2018

Privetshade paused, tail swishing. "We're being followed." She hissed, turning and the air. The black warrior headed towards the noise and was soon confrontes with a large black molly. "What's a WinterClan cat doing far from home?" She asked harshly. Skinkfang moved forward, laying his thick tail over his mate's shoulder. Easy. He thought. But I am the Chosen One 08:30, January 10, 2018 (UTC)

Upon running into the two cats, Spiderclaw automatically sized them up. They shouldn't be a problem, except maybe that tom... "I needed a change of scenery, the dreary mountain can take a toll on you after nearly four years believe it or not," the warrior answered calmly with a hint of sarcasm. She looked at both of them as she spoke. #chicks =trouble 09:03 Wed Jan 10 2018

Privetshade bristles at the strange cat, her eyes narrowing. Skinkfang swished his tail, his gave never wavering. "Oh and I assume you've cone to hoin SummerClan? A big cat like yourself couldn't even catch the prey we have." Privetshade remarked. But I am the Chosen One 10:50, January 10, 2018 (UTC)

"Yeah, could say that. By StarClan you SummerClan cats are smart," Spiderclaw deadpanned. She swished her tail calmly as she watched the pair with some curiosity. "For you're information, hunting was never my strong point as my name implies. So I'd watch your tongue," Spiderclaw looked to Skinkfang. #chicks =trouble 22:00 Wed Jan 10 2018

Skinkfang sneered. "Your threats are empty to me, WinterClan cat. Your size threatens me none. If you wish to join, follow me. You may speak with Waspstar." He said dutifully. But I am the Chosen One 00:39, January 11, 2018 (UTC)

"Fine," Spiderclaw replied curtly. "Lead the way then," she said, stepping aside to put emphasis on her point. #chicks =trouble 20:55 Thu Jan 11 2018

Skinkfang, Privetshade at his side, led the large black rogue back to camp. Upon entering, the camp seemed to bustle with activity. Waspstar was chatting with his sisters, Morningbreeze and Silverface. "Wait here," he signaled for the large cat to stay as he headed towards Waspstar. But I am the Chosen One 21:03, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"Fine, it's not like you wouldn't see me leave." Spiderclaw replied with a snarky tone. She looked around at the Clan and wasn't overly impressed with what she saw. These cats are so small compared to WinterClan warriors, by StarClan. #chicks =trouble 21:04 Fri Jan 12 2018

Skinkfang headed over to Waspstar, his words soft and inaudible. "We've a..special visitor. Former WinterClan, Spiderclaw. Says she wants to join." At his words, the tortoiseshell stood alert. "It seems like WinterClan is just spitting out their warriors to the other Clans." She mumbled. She waved Spiderclaw forward. "Greetings, Spiderclaw." The thin leader greeted. But I am the Chosen One 21:08, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"Waspstar," the black warrior dipped her head to the SummerClan leader. Despite what she had done only days before, Spiderclaw knew she had to respect leaders. "It might be a bit strange to see me of all WinterClan warriors, but as I explained to Skinkfang, a change of scenery is what I felt after nearly four years of service to a mountain." Spiderclaw spoke calmly and without nerves, she didn't have to be nervous. These cats would take her in one way or another. #chicks =trouble 21:13 Fri Jan 12 2018

Waspstar swished her tail peacefully. "You're welcome to stay, I don't see no issue with turning you away. You can go on the evening patrol tonight, actually you'll lead. Skinkfang can accompany you." The deputy gave Waspstar a shocked look, his eyes darkening on the larger cat. He didn't trust her. But I am the Chosen One 21:16, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"My thanks are with you and your Clan, Waspstar." Spiderclaw once again dipped her head and then turned away. She looked back to the deputy, Skinkfang. "So, it seems we'll have to get to know each other then," she smirked. #chicks =trouble 21:18 Fri Jan 12 2018

Skinkfang didn't say a word."If you'll excuse me, I have to help Privetshade get settled in the nursery." He turned without another word, showing his obvious disdain at Spiderclaw's joining. But I am the Chosen One 21:22, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"Fine, you go do that. I'll see you for the evening patrol then," Spiderclaw walked away a few steps before sitting. She knew no one nor did she want to go out in the open fields for she was feeling the heat in her thicker coat. #chicks =trouble 21:24 Fri Jan 12 2018

Darkpaw sat a few fox-lengths away from the large molly. He smoothed his thick fur before standing. "Watch this, I'm going in. She won't be able to resist me!" He told Ashpaw and Nightpaw. He strode towards the ragged warrior. "Come here often," he said, using one of his more dorkier pick-up lines. But I am the Chosen One 21:28, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw looked down at the apprentice that had walked up to her. "What do you think, 'paw?" She said in a slightly harsh tone, looking at him. Spiderclaw deducted that the tom was a fairly new apprentice judging by how small he still was. "You saw me be accepted just then by Waspstar, so I think you already know the answer." #chicks =trouble 21:30 Fri Jan 12 2018

"Of course I saw." He muttered. His mother had done a bit better since getting out of the nursery, maybe the Clans would think of SummerClan better if they at least...I don't know showed them. "Who can miss a 'star' like you?" He winked. But I am the Chosen One 21:33, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw grimaced at his final words. "Look, kid. How about I show you some moves that I can guarantee no SummerClan cat can show you?" #chicks =trouble 21:34 Fri Jan 12 2018

"Battle moves? Hell yeah!" He jumped up, dancing on his paws. "I can show you around, I know the territory like the back of my paw!" He boasted. But I am the Chosen One 21:37, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"I'm sure you do," the older warrior couldn't help but laugh a little at his enthusiasm. Spiderclaw saw a lot of her brother in the apprentice and it made her feel homesick. I can't go back. I have something to prove first. She turned her attention back to the apprentice. "Lead the way kid, take us to your training grounds." #chicks =trouble 21:39 Fri Jan 12 2018

He jumped forward leading the way out of camp towards the training field. He was light and bouncy on his paws as he chatted away. "What's it like? In the mountains." But I am the Chosen One 21:43, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw followed the tom closely. "Rough and cold, no place for cats like you. Why do you think WinterClan cats are so big? So that if something happens we can tough it out." #chicks =trouble 22:06 Fri Jan 12 2018

Darkpaw paused, lifting a forepaw. "I bet I could tough it out! I'm the toughest out of my siblings." But I am the Chosen One 22:08, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"That doesn't really mean a thing when you're that small," Spiderclaw stopped to stare at him. "When I was your age, I was already a head and a bit taller than you. WinterClan cats have to be big otherwise the cold will get them," the black warrior trailed off. She started thinking about her mother upon saying that. Spiderclaw knew her mother would struggle with the upcoming winter moons. #chicks =trouble 22:21 Fri Jan 12 2018

"I'd fair better than all the short-haired cats. How do they even fare with their short hair?" He asked. But I am the Chosen One 22:25, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"WinterClan doesn't tend to have a lot of shorthaired cats. Those that do make the ranks have thicker fur, but, sometimes get caught out in snowstorms. They die a quick death of hypothermia, apprentice. They get frozen solid, and you don't understand how horrid that death is until you retrieve a Clanmate's body from the mountain." Spiderclaw told him, she'd done it once before with her brother. They found his mentor frozen, though she didn't have short fur, she still got caught out in the weather. #chicks =trouble 22:28 Fri Jan 12 2018

"How come you left? WinterClan seemes so strong!" He exclaims. But I am the Chosen One 22:43, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"WinterClan is strong but their leader is weak. I have served that Clan since the day I was born, but, after seeing a few too many poor leadership decisions, I decided it was time to leave," Spiderclaw explained to the apprentice. "Sometimes in life you get a chance to change the way you live, and so I took it this time." #chicks =trouble 23:36 Fri Jan 12 2018

"Oh. I thought Antstar was okay, she had the lineage to lead. Well that's what the Elders say, somethinf about her father's sister." But I am the Chosen One 23:42, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"I didn't agree with her so I left, simple as that. Elders tales can also be full of fantasy, some of them don't even know what they're talking about anymore kid," Spiderclaw told the apprentice. She still hadn't learnt his name. "Just so I can stop calling you kid, what's your name?" #chicks =trouble 23:51 Fri Jan 12 2018

"Darkpaw," he told her proudly. "I want to be the best warrior possible! Someday I wanna be a deputy or leader!" He exclaimed excitedly. But I am the Chosen One 23:57, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

"Well, Darkpaw, my advice is to hold onto those thoughts. They'll give you the drive to accomplish anything. Now, how about I show you those tricks I promised you?" Spiderclaw asked him. She'd never admit it to anyone but she'd love to be a mother. She just couldn't go through the whole nursing and not being a warrior business. She and her brother always said that he'd be the best parent though - he'd be fun. #chicks =trouble 00:16 Sat Jan 13 2018

Darkpaw jumped with excitement, his eyes showing it easily. "Oh yes, please!!" He exclaimed bouncing around her. But I am the Chosen One 00:18, January 13, 2018 (UTC)

She scared the crap out of him.

Shadowstorm had never felt so small and insecure, after watching that massive ex-WinterClan warrior enter camp. And that was coming from him-- he was pretty tall for a SummerClan cat! The entire time, the black smoke warrior was mute, frozen in the shadows of camp as he watched Spiderclaw with round, appalled eyes. It wasn't until she finally left camp with that apprentice that he loosened up, and let out a breath of relief. It felt like he had been holding his breath in for hours...Rainingflame, on the sidelines, cast her cousin a curious glance. What a mouse-heart.Nyan2Silverstar Nyan 17:36, January 13, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw nodded with a small smile. She then proceeded to show the young apprentice a favourite move of hers. It included rearing up and simply slamming the opponent into the ground. "Now, Darkpaw, this move does leave your belly expose so be very wary of your surroundings if you ever decide to use it," Spiderclaw explained carefully. She remembered when she first learned it and if her memory served her right, she recalled falling over backwards into the snow as she lost her balance. #chicks =trouble 06:02 Sun Jan 14 2018

The dark apprentice copied Spiderclaw's movie, swatting his paws around energetically and quickly however a bit clumsily. "I'm going to be the best battle opponet! I'll even be able to knock Horsepaw down!" He exclaimed, speaking of his oddly massive brother. But I am the Chosen One 06:04, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

"For your first try, that's pretty good," Spiderclaw analysed. "Less flailing your paws about and more force going down. Trust me, it looks cooler when it snows deep," she commented. "Don't worry about your brother, you'll get bigger than him. My brother use to be bigger than me but, then he stopped growing. If this Horsepaw gives ya trouble, just whack him over the head. That'll teach him," Spiderclaw laughed and continued to demonstrate the move. #chicks =trouble 06:07 Sun Jan 14 2018

"He's like a horse, Horsepaw is! Mum says he takes after her father, he's dead now." He says, energy waving off in waves. He continued to copy the larger cat's moves, moving his paws more downwards then flailing around. But I am the Chosen One 06:11, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

"He's not that big if he doesn't even come up to my shoulder, Darkpaw," Spiderclaw sort of deadpanned. "I reckon he'll stop growing and the rest of you will get taller than him," she joked. Spiderclaw watched as he progressed with the move. She also noticed that the sky was growing darker. "I think we'll have to head back soon, I'm due for the evening patrol, unfortunately." The black warrior told the apprentice, "but, if you're good I'll definitely ask if I can take you out for my training." #chicks =trouble 06:15 Sun Jan 14 2018

"Training? Golly, that sounds awesome!" He exclaims, bouncing about more. "I'm gonna be an amazing warrior like you!" He rambles about, his paws skidding in the dirt almost as if they're barely touching. But I am the Chosen One 06:18, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

"Only if you behave though," Spiderclaw reminded him. "Now, you might have to lead the way. Still don't remember and if I was left in charge I'd probably take you back to WinterClan territory," Spiderclaw told him. She wasn't wrong because if she was being truthful, her knowledge of her former home was excellent. #chicks =trouble 06:21 Sun Jan 14 2018

This was his chance! He could show her how good he knew the territory! The smoke tabby darted forward with an excited squeal, turning back every few foot to make sure she was still following. He'd memorized the way back to camp from the hollow. He'd have to beg Sumacshade to take him out more. But I am the Chosen One 06:25, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw shook her head with a smile as she followed the overly keen apprentice back to camp. She was lagging behind a little as she tried to remember details so that eventually she wouldn't need someone with her to venture into the territory. The warrior also started to reflect on how excited Darkpaw seemed to be to train. I wonder who his mentor is, because they don't seem to take this kid out enough, she thought while keeping a light jog to keep up with the small tom. #chicks =trouble 06:29 Sun Jan 14 2018

Darkpaw bounced a bit more as the camp's entrance came into sight. He darted through nearly barreling the deputy over. "Sorry Uncle Skinkfang!" He exclaimed before racing off. The long-furred bicolor tom gave the tom a fleeting glance before a glower apleared at the sight of Spiderclaw. "You're late. We've been waiting, too long." The patrol consisted of Skinkfang, Sumacshade, and Horsepaw. The large apprentice sat quietly as he awaited their chance to leave camp. But I am the Chosen One 06:34, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

"Get your head out of the ground, I was getting shown around by Darkpaw and in return showed him some good fighting skills," Spiderclaw snarked at the deputy. "Well, if you're in such a hurry, lead the way Skinkfang," the warrior put emphasis on his name. StarClan, he's a pain in the tail... #chicks =trouble 07:33 Sun Jan 14 2018

The deputy swished his tail irritably before he led the way out of camp, Horsepaw following the warriors slowly. He wa a bit awkward, his size making it slightly hard to do much hunting. But I am the Chosen One 07:37, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw paced behind the other SummerClan warriors. She watched the deputy through narrowed eyes. "So, which border are we checking first? If I may ask, oh great and powerful Skinkfang?" The she-cat sneered, hoping to earn a laugh from Horsepaw, Darkpaw's brother. At least I get to meet the kid's brother as well. The black warrior had a once over the large apprentice and could see Darkpaw's comments come to life. I still reckon he could kick his brother's tail with his eyes closed. #chicks =trouble 07:43 Sun Jan 14 2018

Horsepaw barely gave the large warrior's comment a glance, he was more focused on walking and lost in thought. He'd rather be back at camp, napping or well yeah..napping. Skinkfang sent her a glare. "AutumnClan." He stated cooly. But I am the Chosen One 07:48, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw was admittedly slightly cresfallen at the lack of laugh she recieved from her joke. These cats can't even take a joke, and I thought WinterClan was suppose to be the serious and brooding Clan. The black warrior acknowledged Skinkfang's response with a small nod as her mind started to replay the night she killed her father. AutumnClan never knew what happened to their precious senior warrior that night, all they knew was someone snapped his neck with no remorse. Maybe something like that will get me what I want from this Clan. (ay mink, so when can spider challenge wasp's leadership? i kinda forgot rip) #chicks =trouble 07:51 Sun Jan 14 2018

Horsepaw slowed a bit more, hoping they'd forget he was here so he could per say wander off and do some thinking. He hated the patrols he was dragged on, it was like his mother begged Skinkfang to take him. (id say after Wasp litter is warriors but before Privet's litter opens their eyes.) But I am the Chosen One 07:54, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw continued to follow along, still somewhat lost in her thoughts. She essentially followed along without taking any notice of her surroundings as they got closer to AutumnClan. Despite what they said, that night, the feeling of that power is what brought my family freedom from that fox heart of a tom. (okie dokie - just give a heads up or something so i can remember to do it haha) #chicks =trouble 07:59 Sun Jan 14 2018

Horsepaw slowed a tad more before he turned to the right, disappearing into the bracken. Finally! Freedom. He sniffed out the sapling willow that he normaly hangs around when his duties are done. Skinkfang had caught sight of Horsepaw sneaking off but paid no mind. (Give me at least two days to sort Wasp's lives out then it'll be good to happen.) But I am the Chosen One 08:02, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw came back to the waking world when she noticed that Horsepaw had disappeared. "Oi, Skinkfang, Horsepaw's gone. Are you going to go find him? Make sure he's alright or something?" She asked the stuck up deputy - well, at least that's what she thought of him. (all g matey c: ) #chicks =trouble 08:07 Sun Jan 14 2018

"There's no need, he's gonna to the stream." He replied, the deputy casting her a challenging look. "He does it on every patrol." The bicolor tom said next as he stopped. They'd reached the border. But I am the Chosen One 08:12, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

"I mean, you are aware that apprentices need a warrior to accompany them when in the territory in case something happens to them right?" Spiderclaw pointed out, "or maybe that's just a WinterClan thing." She met his challenging stare without hesitating. The black warrior also took notice they had arrived at the AutumnClan border. #chicks =trouble 08:14 Sun Jan 14 2018

"If you're so worried why don't you find him? Oh that's right. You can't because you couldn't find your tail in this territory." He remarks. "Like I said he's at the stream, there's no need to worry. Sumacshade will go fetch him if your worried that he can't protect himself." But I am the Chosen One 08:19, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Spiderclaw snarled quietly at his comment. "At least I worry about my Clanmates instead of letting them wander off and possibly get killed. Send Sumacshade anyway, it's not right for a young apprentice to be out by himself. A deputy should know that after all, being the second 'leader' of a Clan." #chicks =trouble 08:21 Sun Jan 14 2018

"If you can't handle how we do things, go back home, Outsider." The deputy said darkly. "Afterall you don't fit in here." He waved the lavender shaded tom off to find the apprentice.

Darkpaw had been brewing with excitement from his small training session with Spiderclaw since he'd gone back to camp and couldn't wait for the next one. The smoke tabby gabe a heavy yawn, deciding it was time to head to bed. But I am the Chosen One 15:39, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Troutkit was sitting outside the nursery, silent as a hunting snake preparing to strike, although she appeared naturally innocent. Rainingflame eyed the kitten from a distance before removing her gaze furtively, forcing her lifting fur to go flat. She didn't like the kitten, to which Shadowstorm never seemed to understand, mainly because there was something off about her. She knew her father had 'ties', so to speak, to Troutkit's lineage. But not in a blood-relative sort of way, more of a...kidnapping sort of fashion.Nyan2Silverstar Nyan 17:42, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Horsepaw sat under the willow tree, facing the strea. His eyes were closed, completely lost in thought as he sat there. The surrounding night, peaceful and quiet. Well until Sumacshade smashes through the bushes. The massive tabby tom's eyes flashed open as he cast the warrior a glare. "You know you'll never catch anythinf stomping around like a damn elephant." He said cooly.

Ashpaw and Nightpaw were back in camp, Nightpaw enjoying the company of his mother and Ashpaw was sitting off towards the elders den with Mulletbreeze. Elder and apprentice were talking about the newest Clan member. Spiderclaw. But I am the Chosen One 18:28, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

She felt Rainingflame's gave burning into her pelt, and gritted her teeth out of frustration. They always acted as if she was some senseless animal, like she was unaware of their staring. Fluffy her chocolate smoke pelt out of frustration, Troutkit shifted so that her back was turned to the silver tabby warrior, returning to her own thoughts. It always felt as if Rainingflame knew of something that she didn't.Nyan2Silverstar Nyan 18:52, January 14, 2018 (UTC)

Darkpaw slunk his way to the apprenrices den, fatigue finally hitting the small apprentice. He curled up in his nest, curling his tail around his paws tightly for warmth. But I am the Chosen One 18:55, January 14, 2018 (UTC)
