The cream warrior lifted a tabby paw. Her points faint but still there. Her blue eyes searching camp. Searching for a mottled warrior, the one she had promised to go out to the far west side of WinterClan's territory. For fun, of course, but also to tell Antstar what was there.
Of all parts of the Clan's territory, the west side was most dangerous. The cliffs, canals, and others unstable. The waters raged and the animals were more vicious. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 22:49, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
Orchidbloom wasn't selected to attend the Gathering, so she thought she might as well give Stoneblaze's kittens some company. Particularly Fennelkit, who had a tendency to be awfully shy, especially around the "big cats". The classic tabby lay on her back with Fennelkit clinging to her soft belly-fur, wide-eyed as she listened to the warrior's story about an intense border skirmish with a nosey rogue.Silverstar 04:17, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
Patchkit nustled silently beside his sister, listening to the story, while Nightkit pretended Orchidbloom's tail was a snake and he was stalking it. A couple days had passed since Stoneblaze had first gotten ill, and she had gotten worse. Creekfrost had brought her catmint; it was revealed she had greencough. But the catmint didn't seem to be working... he lie outside the nursery, in a light doze with a trouble expression. ~Patchfeather~ 04:27, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
"-...But I wasn't fast enough, unfortunately. Before I knew it, he had me pinned against this massive, snowy pine tree, and-" she momentarily paused, catching Nightkit out of the corner of her eye. To tempt the tomkit, she twitched her tail slightly before continuing with her story, "-...and I didn't know what to do! I thought I was a goner for sure."Silverstar 04:31, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
Patchkit listened closely, trying to hide how eager he was too find out what happened. I wonder if she die - oh, no she didn't. Nightkit wiggled tro and fro then pounced, giving the 'vicious beast' a light nip. ~Patchfeather~ 04:38, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
(I so planned on having Fennel saying that) Now multi-tasking, Orchidbloom continued to flick her tail about to amuse Nightkit, continuing with her story all the meanwhile. "So he came closer and closer, ready to end me." She went on, Fennelkit starting to quiver nervously. "Did you die?!" She gasped with her jaw dropping, only for Orchidbloom to chuckle and wrap her paw around the kitten. "No, young one, I'm right here."Silverstar 04:42, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
Patchkit suddenly perked, jaws gapping. She read my mind! Can I read her mind? Can we talk to each other like this? He wondered with a super thoughtful look on his face then he stopped when he realized how dumb he must look, then he cowered down in embarrassment and continued to listen to the story. Meanwhile, Nightkit did a beautiful dance full of twists, flips, leaps... ~Patchfeather~ 04:49, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
"Then what happened?" Fennelkit let out tiny squeak, wiggling slightly. "A miracle, really...my best friend, Thunderpaw..." Orchidbloom's eyes darkened in sadness at once as she recalled the ginger tom, who had risked his life for her on multiple occasions...until it was at last, taken. "...He came to my rescue, did a real clever thing. He climbed into that tree without the rogue detecting him. Then, he jumped on a branch, and down it came with him and all the heavy snow. Buried that rogue like a worm!"Silverstar 04:53, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
Patchkit remained slient when Orchidbloom continued. He had heard about Thunderpaw. He had heard bad things about his father, concerning Thunderpaw. What happened exactly? "Did the rogue die?" Nightkit asked, suddenly skipping away from his dance with Orchidbloom's tail to plop down beside his siblings. ~Patchfeather~ 05:00, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
The gray tabby shook her head. "No, he didn't die, he was just...very shocked." She couldn't help but to purr, recalling her ginger tabby friend, and how they valently drove off the intruder. "Me 'n Thunderpaw drove him off."Silverstar 05:03, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
"What was Thunderpaw like?" Nightkit asked, after a thoughtful moment. And what happened to him? Patchkit silently added. ~Patchfeather~ 05:07, January 6, 2017 (UTC)
"A great tom, really...he was polite, honest, sweet..." Orchidbloom trailed off, pain tensing up her throat before she quickly shook her pale head. "I-I'd rather not talk about him." Fennelkit pressed into the warrior's bellyfur, as if attempting to comfort her.Silverstar 02:02, January 7, 2017 (UTC)
Patchkit flattened his ears and felt disappointed. Maybe he could ask some of his Clanmates? He was dying to know what happened to the apprentice. He knew Creekfrost was involved. "He sounds like a cool cat," Nightkit said, then fluffed out his tail to protect it from the cold. "Do you have anymore stories?"
Wispheart returned to camp with wet moss. She had pushed her fear of germs aside to stay with Stoneblaze. She padded across the clearing to the nursery, she stopped when she saw Creekfrost lying outside the den and frowned. She set her moss down and prodded him awake. "Creekfrost, go out and be useful. You can't help Stoneblaze or the Clan by lying here all day. Go hunting. It'll provide and get your mind off her," Wispheart said in a stern but gentle voice. Creekfrost opened his mouth to argue, a bit of anger and outrage on his face, but it vanished almost as soon as it came. Wispheart was right. With a defeated sigh, he stood up. "Okay. I'll do my best," he murmured, quietly. His eyes fell on his kits with Orchidbloom.
He wasn't a huge fan of her, but she was kind to his kits, and was distracting them from worrying about their mother, and he silently thanked her for that, the hurried out of camp. ~Patchfeather~ 03:27, January 7, 2017 (UTC)
Orchidbloom took in a deep breath, attempting to think of a good story for the kittens. "Well, I'm no elder, mind you." She chuckled lightly, Fennelkit rolling off the warrior's soft belly before glancing up at her eagerly. "Perhaps a story about one of my first patrols as an apprentice?"Silverstar 16:17, January 8, 2017 (UTC)
"Yeah!" Nightkit exclaimed, bouncing up and down. "Was it fun? Did you get into a border clash?" Meanwhile, Wispheart padded into the nursery to find Stoneblaze sleeping, hardly breathing, and weezing. The whole den was filled with the stink and heat of fever and illness.~Patchfeather~ 16:53, January 9, 2017 (UTC)
The gray tabby warrior twitched her whiskers in amusement, gently tapping her tail against the kitten's ear. "No! Being a warrior isn't about bloody battles...that's only when absolutely needed." Fennelkit stretched her neck once Orchidbloom began, as if trying to hear better. "No...it was no border clash, it was a much different experience. I had to return a couple of very young foxcubs to its mother."Silverstar 21:45, January 10, 2017 (UTC)
"Foxcubs?" Nightkit gasped, wrinkling his nose. I would have killed them! ---- Wispheart decided not to disturb Stoneblaze and left the den. ~Patchfeather~ 01:02, January 11, 2017 (UTC)
Wispheart awoke from a doze outside the warriors den with a start. She glanced around, confused. How long had she been out? Her heart leaped when she saw the sun setting. She hadn't tended to Stoneblaze since morning! She hurried into the nursery and found Stoneblaze sleeping in her nest still, looking exactly the same as that morning. But the feel of the den was eerie, and the smell all the Clans dreaded was faintly rising off of Stoneblaze's cold fur. Death.
"No, no, oh no," Wispheart whimpered, nudging the mottled queen with her muzzle. "Stoneblaze!?" she cried, but Stoneblaze didn't reply, just lie limp in her nest. Wispheart looked around, in a daze.
She poked her head out of the den, looking around for someone to help, although it was far too late for help, and she knew it, but she wouldn't accept it. Guilt clawed at her, making her skin burn and heart ache. It was her fault! She should have stayed with Stoneblaze! ~Patchfeather~ 19:55, February 15, 2017 (UTC)
Antstar walked into camp, she had just checked on one of the much quieter borders of WinterClan's territory. The black leader made her way back into camp, her amber gaze going towards the Warriors den. It had been a bit since she'd seen Webshadow.
The tall leader made her way to the Highrock to do her overdue ceremonies. After a moment of silence she began. "May all cats old enought o catch prey gather beneath highrock now." She paused for a mere five minutes waiting for the cats to gather, at that moment she spotted Webshadow. She met his gaze briefly before continuing.
"Today Robinpaw and Lilypaw have finished their training and passed their assessments from this moment on they will be known as warriors. Please step forward." The two did as told. "Robin paw from this moment on you will be known as Robinleaf for your courage and compassion," she turned to Lilypaw as Robinpaw stepped back a few steps. "Lilypaw from this day forward you will be known as Lilyfrost for your bravery and honesty. May StarClan light your paths." She said touching each of the newly made warriors noses.
I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 16:17, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Awhile had passed since Stoneblaze's death, her family had been devastated about her death. Nightkit watched the ceremony with wide eyes and his mouth hanging open. This was one of the first times he'd look remotely happy since Stoneblaze... Songkit sat close beside him, silently wondering when they'd be made apprentices. Her blue eyes flinted over to her father, who was sitting hunched at the back of the crowd. He was a wreck. A fresh wave of grief stabbed her heart. Nothing would ever be the same again. Creekfrost was always depressed, she was herself, her siblings were, nothing was exciting now, the world wasn't happy anymore and it never would be ever again. ~Patchfeather~ 16:49, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Poppyleaf walked inside camp, a huge bundle of herbs gathered in her small jaws. The medicine cat cast a glance at Creekfrost and sighed quietly. The molly had heard of Stoneblaze passing and hadn't been in camp much, there had been a lot of deaths lately. it made her feel helpless as medicine cat.
Meanwhile, Lightningkit sat with Ivykit. He was nearing his sixth moon along with her. The tabby and white she-cat made her way past, Robinleaf bounding up excitedly before she greeted the medicine cat. "Poppyleaf," the young warrior said cheerily. Poppyleaf gave a grunt as that was all she could do.
Dawnnose walked into camp, her tabby tail flicking slowly as she trotted forward. She had, of course, made a friend over the moons - Talonfang. The mottled warrior was more or less like a comrade. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 19:46, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Orchidbloom had offered her support for her deceased friend's kittens. The loss of Stoneblaze made her feel rather empty, having only really ever interacted with the queen and her kittens. Fennelkit loosely clung to Orchidbloom's side, an emotionless expression on her face. The youngster was still remarkably small for her size, clearly a runt, almost sickly so. Orchidbloom was starting to worry. She had to find the kitten friends, she had to life her spirits. Gently, the pale she-cat nudged the mottled kitten.
"Why don't you run along now, play with your friends or siblings, dear? I need to stretch my legs for a bit, and I suggest you do so as well." The warrior murmured gently, nuding Fennelkit along who wordlessly wondered off, unsure of what to do.Silverstar 19:59, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Songkit spotted Fennelkit and beckoned her over. Nightkit's awefilled look faded when he saw Fennelkit, seeing her look sad seemed to remind him of what happened. Creekfrost meanwhile padded over to the nursery, where he usually spent his time. Some cats joked that maybe he was thinking of becoming a queen. He didn't think the jokes were funny.
Talonfang trotted over to Dawnnose when she saw her walk into camp. "Heya, Dawnnose," she quietly greeted, odd. She was usually super loud.~Patchfeather~ 21:32, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit nervously glanced up at her beckoning brother before slowly trotting over, her gait remaining smooth and graceful as she approached. Awkwardly, the little kitten sat down beside Songkit.Silverstar 23:30, March 23, 2017 (UTC)
Dawnnose turned towards her mottled friend, why was she quiet today? She shook it off per usual and flicked her tail in a greeting before speaking. "How's your brother faring? I heard Stoneblaze passed not long ago?" She asked, icy gaze turned up at the mottled warrior. The cream point molly was laying on her back basking in what sunlight was left. She had been watching the ceremony and it seemed to her as though Antstar had been searching for someone.
Antstar cast her amber gaze about camp, she had spotted Webshadow earlier and if she could just spot him again she wanted to chat with him, as a friend of course. The ragged leader arched her neck to see over the crowd before she spotted the golden-brown tabby. She began to make her way over. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 14:13, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit shuffled her paws, wondering of her brothers would be interested in playing with her. It was a good way to get her mind off the death of her mother, right? Awkwardly, the tiny kitten rolled the mossball underneath her dainty paw, as if attempting to passively interest her brothers...or anyone else willing play, really.
Webshadow worked a thorn out of his paw, confused as to how it even got there in the first place. His mother was out on patrol, busily working away per usual. He had a difficult relationship with her, be he despised anyone who attempted to talk to her or even himself about it. They needed to learn to leave their crappy daughter-son relationship alone, or not bother to ever speak with him. His problems were his own, he was no incapable kitten.Silverstar 14:42, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
As she made her way over an odd feeling overwhelmed her. The black leader wasn't all too familiar with her feelings or anyone else's for that matter and shoved the feeling aside, however, it refused to leave. When she was finally a few feet away she gave a lash of her tail irritated at it all. "Evening, Webshadow." The leader spoke in her usual voice. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 14:45, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
"Even'n," Webshadow responded as he fastened his teeth around the thorn and pulled it from his paw pad, spitting the piece of plant out bitterly.---- Orchidbloom glanced back at the pale mottled kitten with a small frown. She'd play with Fennelkit, but she needed to give the kitten room. Fennelkit couldn't follow her around forever, she needed to be around those who were her age, such as her brothers and the other kittens in the nursery.Silverstar 14:47, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Nightkit brightened when Fennelkit moved the moss-ball around. "Want to play?" he asked, kneading the ground. Songkit's ears pricked with interest. Meanwhile, Creekfrost remained outside the nursery, watching his kits through foggy eyes.
Talonfang gave Creekfrost a sidelong glance. "He isn't the same as he used to be. He doesn't talk to anyone much anymore. All he does is hunt, patrol, or silently watch his kits," she murmured, eyes narrowing slightly. Why was Creekfrost so worked up about Stoneblaze's death? She was going to die one day anyway. He could just get a new mate, simple as that. ~Patchfeather~ 19:32, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Antstar smiled, casting her gaze around as she sat - spine straight. The leader attempted to start a conversation, which she sucked at. "How have you been since we last talked?" She asked, turning her head to look at him.
Lightningkit sat alone inside the nursery, he too had been hit hard by Stoneblaze's death. She had been his adoptive mother and therefore somebody close to him. The white tom cast a glance at his sister, Ivykit, who was sleeping in her nest. She hadn't seem to be affected by it, but he knew deep down she was.
Dawnnose shrugged. "Man, I don't think I'll ever be the kind of cat to take on a mate or have kits. That would mean I'd have to settle down and I am not ready for that." She said with a mock shudder. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 19:36, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Talonfang nodded, sitting down next to her friend. She had thought about taking a mate. She had no interest in any of the toms in her Clan, they were nice, but not her type. She wondered if she'd ever really find one. She did want to have kits one day. She teach them how to be the most skilled warriors ever. They'd become leader; she'd be so proud. A small grin crept onto her face at the thought. ~Patchfeather~ 19:44, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Dawnnose snorted. "What's that grin for?" She asked her best friend, suspicion on her face. She narrowed her icy eyes in interest. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 19:47, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
"Nothing important," Talonfang said briskly, flicking her tail. ~Patchfeather~ 19:52, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit slowly pricked her ears, raising her head to nearly smile, nodding her head slowly. "Yeah, I'd really like that," she responded quietly to her brother, rolling the moss ball over to his paws.Silverstar 16:15, March 25, 2017 (UTC)
Nightkit batted it to Songkit's paws, who slowly leapt after it and passed it back to Fennelkit. It felt odd to be playing after so long, but so good. ~Patchfeather~ 19:06, March 25, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit continued to pass the moss ball around, her pale mottled ears pricked.Silverstar 15:59, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
Nightkit and Songkit carried on passing it around, Nightkit getting so excited, he sprinted around in frantic circles, before hurrying back to rejoin the game, panting. Creekfrost remained silent as he watched the kits play, but it felt like a weight was lifted off his shoulders, a little bit at least. It was great to see the kits playing again, looking happy again, and it made him feel a bit happier. ~Patchfeather~ 16:46, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit gave her brothers a wide grin, overjoyed to have her mind distracted from the death of her dear mother. She ran forward to smack the moss-ball back, only to trip over it.Silverstar 16:48, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
Songkit hurried over to Fennelkit, nuzzling her shoulder. "Are you okay?" she asked, anxiously sniffing her sister for scratches. Nightkit halted to see the outcome of this. ~Patchfeather~ 19:15, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"Y-Yeah, I'm ok. Just tripping over my paws." Fennelkit attempted to cast her sister a reassuring glance. "Maybe I'm finally growing?"---- Orchidbloom cast Creekfrost a side-glance through narrowed eyes. She still resented him after the death of Thunderpaw, but she did pity him for the death of Stoneblaze.Silverstar 00:20, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Songkit frowned, looking her mottled sister over. What if this was caused by Fennelkit being too skinny? What if she was getting too weak? Nightkit nodded. "Yeah, that must be it!" he purred. "Well, since you're okay, we can keep playing," he mewed, snatching the moss and giving it to Fennelkit. Songkit didn't voice her thoughts about Fennelkit, but decided she'd keep an eye on her.
Creekfrost tensed up when Fennelkit fell, but relaxed when he didn't scent any blood. He rose stiffly to his paws, wincing. How long had he been sitting there again? He felt like an elder. Maybe he should go hunting... he could catch the kits something nice. ~Patchfeather~ 04:24, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Antstar stood off to the side of camp, thoughts filled with her father and siblings. The black molly slowly made her way to leave camp. She hadn't really thought about how Shrewcloud and Salmonstream were doing. After she became leader they left and she never knew why. Jealousy, maybe? My name isLord Voldemort 16:18, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit nodded eagerly, but raced away from the mossball with a wide grin, trying to remove her siblings' thoughts from her little fall. "Last one to the fresh kill pile is a piece of mouse dung!"Silverstar 16:49, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
The tall leader made her way out of camp to where her mother was buried. She missed her mother, if her mother hadn't of died weeks before her siblings leave then maybe her family would still be together? My name isLord Voldemort 17:06, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Nightkit roared and ran awkwardly over to the fresh-kill pile, the moss ball tight in the grasp of out of his paws. He was proud of his prize and would protect it with his life. Songkit hurried after her siblings, slow on her short legs. Creekfrost asked Wispheart to keep an eye on the kits, which she excitedly agreed to, before he padded out of camp, hiding in a shadow. ~Patchfeather~ 17:16, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit hared over to the fresh kill pile before eagerly bouncing beside it, awaiting the arrival of her siblings. "We should play a massive game of clans! Like, get the apprentices to play as well!"Silverstar 17:18, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Lightningkit watched Creekfrost leave. Since Stoneblaze had passed he hadn't even bothered with him nor Ivykit. The white tom lurched forward heading to the small tunnel that led out of camp. He'd show him. My name isLord Voldemort 17:20, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"Yes, yes, yes, yes!" Nightkit yowled, kneading the ground. "Maybe we can get some of the warriors to even play?" Songkit silently sat down beside them, her eyes sparking with interest. ---- Creekfrost, unaware of Lightningkit leaving camp, continued walking, scenting the air to pick up prey scents. ~Patchfeather~ 17:24, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Lightningkit picked his way through the forest heading to the long, rushing stream that covered most of the Clan's territory. His heterochromatic eyes flicking back and forth searching until a sharp, high pitch cry frightened him. He turned to see a fox stalking towards him. Fear immobalized him and finally after what seemed like forever he turned to run but felt the fox's jaw snap down on the tip of his tail. The kitten screeched and struggled against its grasp. My name isLord Voldemort 17:27, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Creekfrost's head jerked up from the patch of bracken when he heard a scream. That sounded like a kit!Heart in his throat, he raced as fast as he could to the source of the cry, until he stopped for a moment when he turned up at the scene. A fox and a white kit - Lightningkit. He rushed over and raked his claws across the foxes muzzle, snarling. ~Patchfeather~ 17:36, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit let out a soft snort of amusement. "I think we'd have better luck asking the elders to play! Warriors are really grumpy, one of them almost ate me once!"Silverstar 19:33, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
The fox danced out of Creekfrost's reach, letting go of the kitten's tail. The white kitten lurched forward tumbling towards the river before he finally rolled to a stop. His tail throbbed horribly. The hetrochromatic kitten looked at his tail to see that the fox had horridly raked the fur along his tail, half of his tail, and there were a few gashes in it. My name isLord Voldemort 19:44, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Pinekit sat by himself, over hearing the other kittens talking about some sort of war thingy. It sounded fun! "Wispheart'll probably play with us," Nightkit mewed, glancing over to the ginger and white she-cat, who sat not too far away, grooming her thick tail.
Creekfrost hissed at the fox before turning to Lightningkit. "Are you okay?" he asked anxiously. "Why are you outside?" he snapped suddenly. "Go back to camp now!" ~Patchfeather~ 19:48, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit's pale eyes gleamed. "Yeah! We could have all the kits form a Clan, and she could be some evil bear!" She bounced eagerly on her small paws. "I wanna lead WinterClan!"Silverstar 19:52, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
The kitten glared before he took off running, towards camp but at last minute he veered to a small patch of flowers. Why was Creekfrost so mean to him?My name isLord Voldemort 19:53, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"Yes! We can ambush her! I want to lead SpringClan, even though they stink. Let's get the other kits!" Nightkit squealed, dashing around in frantic circles, not knowing where to start.
Creekfrost watched Lightningkit before turning back to the fox. ~Patchfeather~ 19:54, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"Ok! Songkit, what do you wanna be?" Fennelkit asked her sister with a wide grin before turning to Nightkit, whiskers twitching in amusement. "The nursery's over there!"Silverstar 19:56, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"Oh yeah!" Nightkit mewed, hurrying over and ran into Pinekit. "Sorry dude!" Nightkit yelped, climbing off of the tom. "We're starting a war! Go over to my sisters, I'm going to look for Lightningkit and Ivykit," he said, before disappearing into the nursery. "Ivykit! Lightningkit!"
Pinekit got to his paws, shaking dust out of his fur - not that it mattered anyway, it blended in just fine - before trotting over to the she-cats. "I guess I'll lead SplashClan," Songkit said, shrugging. "Nightkit sent me," Pinekit reported. ~Patchfeather~ 20:05, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"We're playing a huge game of Clans! I'm leading WinterClan, Nightkit has SpringClan, and Songkit has SplashClan. So we need deputies, medicine cats, warriors, and more leaders!" Fennelkit continued to bounce up and down on her paws, eyes round with energy.Silverstar 20:09, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"I'd be a terrible leader. I could be a warrior," Pinekit mewed, wagging his stumpy tail. Songkit gave Wispheart a sidelong glance, who was now watching them curiously. Uh-on, the bear had spotted them. "Maybe we should go to a more privite area?" Songkit suggested, flecking her ears toward the warrior. ~Patchfeather~ 20:14, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit nodded quickly to her sister. "Good idea, don't want that bear to catch on."Silverstar 20:15, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"Let's go into the nursery," Songkit decided, giving Wispheart another look before padding over to the den. "We need to figure out why Nightkit's being so slow anyway. He probably got lost," Wispheart carried on watching the kits, becoming ever more curious about the looks they kept giving her. She didn't follow them though. I'll keep my eyes open though. ~Patchfeather~ 20:18, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit nodded her agreement. "He probably got too excited and forgot about what we're going to do!"Silverstar 20:32, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
When Songkit padded into the nursery, she found Nightkit walking around in circles, grinning to himself. "Hey, stupid. Remember what we're doing?" Nightkit nodded then looked confused. "Oh yeah, I can't find Lightningkit though." Pinekit popped into the den close behind. ~Patchfeather~ 22:05, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelkit patiently waited for her littermates, tiny frame quivering in excitement. This was going to be the greatest game ever!Silverstar 18:09, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
Nightkit shrugged. "Ivykit, do you want to play?" he asked, kneading the ground. ~Patchfeather~ 19:14, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
Ivykit cast her gaze onto the smaller kitten. "Do I? Well if I'm correct I'll be an apprentice very shortly." The black molly said proudly. She looked around growing worried about Lightningkit. Where was he?My name isLord Voldemort 19:27, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
"So? We're only like a moon or less younger than you," Nightkit mewed, rolling his eyes. "You playing or not?" Songkit glanced around, curious about where her foster brother disappeared to. ~Patchfeather~ 20:43, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
Ivykit sniffed, to her "dismay" she was saved by Antstar calling a meeting. This was it! "See you later chum," she said. "I'm gonna listen to this." The black molly said her goodbye her foster siblings. Lightningkit then squeezed through the entrance back in camo, tail faintly scratched and bloody. Ivykit caught sight of him and made his way to her. "What happened?"
"I'll tell you later," he replied gruffly. As Antstar started to speak.
"Cats of WinterClan, today Thunderwhisper's last litter has reached the age of six moons." The rugged molly called to the cats. "As well Creekfrost's litter." She added. "Ivykit, Lightningkit, Nightkit, Songkit, and Fennelkit steo forward." The five kittens did as told some displaying nervousness towards the larger cat.
"From this day forth you shall be known as Ivypaw, Lightningpaw, Nightpaw, Songpaw, and Fennelpaw and your respected mentors in the following order. Cherrywhisker, Creekfrost, Dawnnose, Talonfang, and Orchidbloom." The tall leader finished the ceremony. My name isLord Voldemort 02:36, May 2, 2017 (UTC)
Creekfrost padded back into camp just as Antstar called the meeting. The anger and fear he had felt when Lightningkit got attacked by the fox melted away when he realized they were being apprenticed, replaced by pride. I didn't get a chance to clean them! he fretted like a queen. He padded over Lightningpaw, faintly surprised he was mentoring his foster son, he bent down and touched his nose to Lightningpaw's. "Are you okay, Lightningpaw?' he asked softly.
Nightpaw bounded up to Dawnnose, reaching up on the tips of his toes to touch her nose to his. Songpaw hastily approached her aunt, Talonfang leaned down to touch her nose. "It's okay, love. No need to be scared." ~Patchfeather~ 13:49, May 2, 2017 (UTC)
Orchidbloom had taken the liberty to (attempting) to groom her deceased friend's litter. She managed to snatch up Fennelkit while the undersized kitten was having a sudden spurt of energy. The mottled molly had been set on climbing out of Orchidbloom's paws and running off to play, but the tabby warrior had managed to pin her down until she was fully groomed.
Now, the newly made apprentice stood proudly. Her coat was glossy and well-groomed, thanks to Orchidbloom, and it clung tightly to her slender build. She looked a bit taller than before, although she was still the shortest of all the apprentices, perhaps even shorter than some of the older kittens. Fennelpaw approached Orchidbloom swiftly, her entire scrawny body quivering with eagerness. Rather than touch noses to her apprentice, Orchidbloom let out a warm purr and nuzzled Fennelpaw's forehead. "Congratulations, Fennelpaw. How about you run off to build your new nest?"Silverstar 21:02, May 2, 2017 (UTC)
Lightningpaw sniffed and dismissed himself, heading to Poppyleaf. The young molly was busying herself by chatting with a warrior. "Hey, Poppyleaf?" The ginger and white tabby turned raising a brow. "Hm?"
"I had a little accident earlier," he showed her his battered tail. She shook her head mumbling about how the warriors needed to be easy on their bodies lest they find themselves dead. She grabbed some cobwebs and marigold then began to patch what she could of the apprentice's tail. My name isLord Voldemort 00:56, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelpaw brightened, casting her mentor a wide grin and nodding vigorously. "Ok! Thank you, Orchidbloom!" The mottled feline turned, briskly approaching the Medicine Cat den. The moss was kept around here, correct? She poked around for a few moments before she discovered the pile of freshly collected moss. Grabbing a piece, she carried it in her mouth until she approached the Apprentice's den, ducking inside. She took in a big gulp of air before purring proudly. She was happy to be finally 'moving up in the ranks'. An apprentice was nothing special, but it meant she was one step closer to becoming a true warrior.Silverstar 01:01, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Lightningpaw let the medicine cat work on his poor looking tail, once she was done he headed towards Creekfrost, gaze briefly lingering on Fennelpaw. The white tom flicked his injured tail gently in a greeting before going to his mentor and foster father. He never understood Creekfrost. The warrior barely acknowledged that him or Ivypaw were alive since Stoneblaze's death. My name isLord Voldemort 02:06, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelpaw placed her nest in the back of the den, grinning to herself all the meanwhile. But when she glanced up, she discovered a hole in the ceiling, and sighed. Guess they'd have to fix that...and move her nest. Grin fading to a frown, she began to peel her nest up.Silverstar 02:17, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Lightningpaw stopped before reaching his mentor. Maybe he could just fix his nest and make friends in the meantime. He'd need friends at the rate he was going. The white apprentice turned tail and headed to the apprentices den heterochromatic eyes shining with excitement. The quiet tom slipped in the den giving a silent murmur of greeting to Fennelpaw. My name isLord Voldemort 02:23, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelpaw gave him a curt nod of acknowledgement, before motioning to the spot under the hole with her tail. "Keep away from there, or you'll wake up with a soaked nest during a rainstorm." She warned him, focusing on her nest.Silverstar 02:27, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Creekfrost let out a faint hiss of annoyance that his apprentice wandered off without even saying anything. At least he was doing what he would have told him to do... Maybe I can get a straight answer out of him later. His tail looked messed up. ---- "Go make your nest, then we'll go around the territory," Talonfang mewed, briskly motioning with her tail to get a move on. Songpaw nodded, turning and padding softly towards the apprentices' den.
(idk how much time has passed since that last post as kits so i'll edit this if i'm wrong) Pinepaw nearly did a joyful backflip. His former denmates were joining him in the apprentices' den at last. He was used to being alone, with no mother or siblings in the nursery, back utterly alone in the apprentices' den was lonely - and kinda creepy, hearing all those distant noises and wondering what they were. ~Patchfeather~ 03:25, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Lightningpaw mustered up enough courage to try to start with small talk. "You like your mentor?" He asked softly, a small squeak in his voice. My name isLord Voldemort 13:14, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Creekfrost sat back on his hunches, looking puzzled. So after Lightningpaw finished his nest, what then. Lightningpaw was his first apprentice so he didn't have a good idea on what to do. He gave the other warriors who had recieved apprentices, wondering if they could help. ~Patchfeather~ 14:32, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
"Orchidbloom?" Fennelpaw looked up at the white tom briefly, dipping her head back down moments later to return her focus to her work. "Yeah, I love Orchidbloom, she's like an aunt to me. She was good friends with my mother, before she...passed away." She finished tearing up her moss and moved it to a new spot in the den.Silverstar 19:48, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
"Stoneblaze.." the tom said softly. Stoneblaze had been like a mother to him. Although he thought finally that maybe Creekfrost and his litter had thought that Lightningpaw and Ivypaw didn't belong. "Yeah, she seems nice. I've never talked to her t-though." He said. My name isLord Voldemort 19:51, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
"Well, after my mom died, she never entered the nursery. Although whenever we were outside, Orchidbloom would always play on us and check in with us. She just never went into the nursery because my father might've been in there." Fennelpaw placed her moss in a neat circle, glancing down at her new bed proudly.Silverstar 19:54, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Creekfrost slinked over to Talonfang, nudging her softly. She whipped around and stared intensely at him like an owl focused on it's prey. "Hey, Talonfang? Do you mind if me and Lightningpaw tag along with you and Songpaw?" Talonfang had had an apprentice in the past, so she knew how to do this. He could take her training as an example. Talonfang relaxed and sat back on her hunches lazily. "Sure." She stood up suddenly. "I can see if Orchidbloom wants to join us, I'll be right back." She padded over to the molly without seeing if her brother agreed. Creekfrost scowled, then regretted it, feeling guilty. He was grateful to Orchidbloom for spending so much time with his kits, but he still didn't talk to her despite this. Just ignore her the entire time.
Talonfang padded over to Orchidbloom, quite aware of Creekfrost's disapproval. "Hi, Orchidbloom. Would you like to join me, Songpaw, Creekfrost, and Lightningpaw to give Fennelpaw a tour of the territory?" ~Patchfeather~ 20:06, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
Orchidbloom glanced up at the approaching warrior, and cast her a warm and welcoming smile. "Greetings, Talonfang. Of course I'd be willing to tag along with you and your apprentice. Fennelpaw's just finishing up her nest, and we'll have to tour the territory at some point. Best to get it over with." She didn't bother to mention Creekfrost's name. She was willing to go with Talonfang, but not that murderous tom. The warrior was aware that she'd be stuck with him if she did tag along, but for Fennelpaw's sake, she'd have to suffer through it.Silverstar 20:09, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
"Fantastic! We'll be waiting by the entrance," Talonfang dipped her head to the warrior, grinning, then padded back over to Creekfrost. "All right, we're all set. They'll be joining us." Creekfrost made no reaction. "Wonderful."
Pinepaw bounded into the apprentices' den carrying so much moss, he looked like some kind of swamp monster. He shook it off his pelt and spat it out of his mouth, coughing. "I got extra bedding!" he announced, sneezing. Songpaw gave her friend a thankful nod, grabbing some, then quickly and carelessly threw it all together next to Fennelpaw's nest then bounded out of the den, eager to see the territory. Nightpaw stayed behind in the apprentices' den, ever so carefully preparing his nest to the smallest details. ~Patchfeather~ 20:18, May 3, 2017 (UTC)
"If you don't mind me asking, why does Creekfrost harbor such dark feelings towards Orchidbloom?" He asked softly, heterochromatic eyes not meeting hers. He feared of upsetting her, they were all still grieving but Creekfrost had changed. He just wasn't sure if it was good or bad. My name isLord Voldemort 13:50, May 4, 2017 (UTC)
Fennelpaw was now laying in her nest with her paws neatly tucked underneath her narrow chest. She was just...'testing it out'. Had to make sure there were no thorns before she slept in it, right? "Well, she was in love with this apprentice, Thunderpaw...my father was there at his death. Some say he even killed Thunderpaw."Silverstar 01:28, May 5, 2017 (UTC)
"From what I know, I don't think Creekfrost really liked Thunderpaw. There was this big....accident, but I've never been given the full details. It hurts Orchidbloom too much to talk about it, and I have never dared to ask my father." Fennelpaw replied with a small frown.Silverstar 16:18, June 4, 2017 (UTC)
Pinepaw left the apprentices den, short tail lashing. He wished he could join the new apprentices - it'd be so fun! He could show them how to hunt, he could help their mentors if they needed him! But he needed to clean the elders ticks. He padded across the clearing, downcast, towards the medicine den for mouse-bile. How did elders get so dirty from lying around all day? ~Patchfeather~ 20:53, June 6, 2017 (UTC)
