Topazpaw stared at Risingstar in horror. "D-daddy?" She cried. "Wildheart, what happened to Risingstar? What's wrong?" She mewed, her voice small and scared.04:44, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Shallowspalsh shimmied out of the warrior's den, wondering why everyone was so worried. Looking over the taller shoulders of her clanmates, she paused, wondering why there was a cube of ice in the camp. Pushing her way forward, she noticed that Risingstar was trapped inside. ...what? The tabby tilted her head to the side slightly, utterly confused as to how this could happen. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 05:06, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart's pained gaze hit Topazpaw "He's frozen" she mewed, laying her head back down sadly --- Fallingpaw looked at his father's ice cube, his eyes tearing up. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 20:54, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Snowpaw stared at the frozen block of ice. ----- Ravenkit couldn't break her gaze away from Icefeather's wrists. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 20:55, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Crowfoot ate a shrew in the warrior's den, watching the others outside wail and screech in shock out of horror once they saw their leader's frozen body. He didn't seem to care about this catastrophe, as it almost felt like some calamity occured at least every quarter-moon. BbunlegsBbun (talk) 20:56, March 6, 2013 (UTC)Bbun
Hawkheart twitched his long white whiskers. His eyes flashed, and he got up, his fat body frame hanging down, as he has been stuffing himself too much. He thought of a war, and a way to get himself on top. --- Creamlight looked at the sky, searching for answers. She had saw her fearless leader in ice, and now she was pregnant. I shouldnt be pregnant, oh why StarClan! Cheetahspirit is my life :3 21:11, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Ravenkit bounced up to Icefeather. "We'll go hunting every day when I'm an apprentice!" --- Icefeather nodded. "I bet we will." 21:16, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Lifekit looked around. "I wonder what Clan life is like..." she said silently. Risingstar looked at her. "What did you say?" he asked. "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 21:31, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart closed her eyes, still crying slightly, and fell asleep. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 21:50, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Lifekit grabbed her father's paw, a bond coming between the two of them. "Come with me, Risingstar," she uttered. The tabby leader followed his daughter into the mind of Wildheart. "What are we doing here? She hates me!" "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 21:57, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart lifted her pained eyes to see the blurred shape of a black tabby and a tiny brown tabby standing over her. She closed her eyes, feeling like she was living a nightmare Now Im living a nightmare! My mind is making me see Risingstar, and no matter how much I want to, hes gone she convinced herself. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 21:59, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Lifekit ran over to her mother and nuzzled her legs. "Hello, Wildheart. It's me, Lifekit!" "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:01, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Ravenkit eyed Icefeather as she fell asleep. She dashed out of the nursery, her black fur puffed up in all directions. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 22:02, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart's eyes flew open "L-lifekit?" she stammered, her eyes widened. She stumbled to her paws, her fur ragged at parts where she didn't care to wash it. Her tail flicked endlessly with shock, and her ears shot forwards "My daughter?" she mewed, stepping closer and lowering her head to lick Lifekit's cheek. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 22:05, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Lifekit laughed like a baby woukd, like "ahehehehe." She purred. "Yes, it's me, your daughter." "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:09, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart purred and licked Lifekit's head, nuzzling her. She looked up at Risingstar, lost for words. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 22:13, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Risingstar shrugged. "She brought me here, I would never come to a place where I am hated." "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:17, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart took a step towards Risingstar, her eyes soft "Risingstar, I couldn't hate you even if I tried. I admit, I was stupid, I shouldn't have over reacted, and I shouldn't have left you. I love you, as much as I did when we were younger. I can't stay mad at you, your my hero, my love, the cat I fell in love with so long ago" she mewed softly, her eyes twinkling. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 22:32, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Risingstar's eyes tinkled as he looked back at his former mate. "Oh, Wildheart, you still love me?" "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:39, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart's eyes sparkled "I always have" Cheetahspirit is my life :3 22:42, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Ravenkit curled next to Icefeather and nudged her, her black fur spikey. "Mama, wake up." she meowed. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 22:43, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Risingstar got coser to her. "Then why end it?" "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:48, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart sighed "Because, I was angry. Anger hurts a cat, and turns her heart dark" she mewed truthfully. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 22:50, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Risingstar sighed as well. "And tiredness affects a cat, and makes his heart fail to see what's going on around him." "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:52, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Shimmershadow walked out of camp, her tail down,her face soaked with tears. Risingstar was frozen. He doesn't love me. I'm done. Just done. She looked at the river in front of her and dipped her paw in it. Freezing cold. Cold enough to kill a cat from exposure. She took one look around her, taking in everything. She plunged into the water, letting to current drag her down to the bottom, letting it smash her against the rocks. Letting it take her life. Goodbye, WinterClan. Goodbye, my kits. And.... Goodbye, Risingstar, my love...

Crowfoot got up, and padded off to find out where Shimmershadow went. He had seen her earlier doing something of little importance, and it was strange that the gray senior warrior was nowhere to be found,. "I wonder where she is." he meowed to himself, checking about camp. No trace of the she-cat was to be seen, so Crowfoot gave up, and the black tom padded back into the warrior's den.

Icefeather could barely feel Ravenkit's tiny paws. She sighed and buried her nose in her paws. ---- Ravenkit pawed at her mother. "Mama, wake up, please...." I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 23:06, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart blinked "I love you" she mewed, nuzzling him. She searched his eyes, for any trace of love. --- Winterblaze looked at Icefeather and nuzzled her, smiling. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 23:15, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Lifekit purred as her father nuzzled her mother. "We must go, Wildheart. Tell Opalpaw, Topazpaw and Fallingpaw I said hi." "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 23:17, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart smiled at Lifekit "They will be delighted to hear that your living well here" she purred, licking her daughter, She then turned to Risingstar "I will be waiting for you, forever and always" she mewed before slowly fading away into her body. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 23:20, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Icefeather looked up. "Hi." she meowed to her mate. ---- Ravenkit pounced on Winterblaze's tail. "Daddy." I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 23:20, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Risingstar flashed back into his frozen, cold body, with his golden daughter. "Thank you, Lifekit." he mewed, eyes almost crying. "You'er welcome, Daddy," she mewed. "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 23:23, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart smiled as she stumbled up, her heart racing with joy. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 23:35, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Shimmershadow's heart raced with panic. She srambled her paws against the bottom of the river as her fur snagged in something. Her lungs ached, and her eyes stung. Her paw pads were scraped and bleeding. Her thick fur made her heavy.--- Shadowclaw got up, concerned. He hadn't seen Shimmershadow in a while. He padded out of the camp, and, finding her sent, followed it to the river. It ended there. He peered into the river and saw nothing. Looking around, he saw pawprints on the muddy bank, Shimmershadow's fear sent thick in the air. He knew she had jumped in the river. He had to save her. Standing in her pawprints, he plunged in. He kicked his strong legs out, churrning his paws in the water. He saw bubbles rise from the deeper water and heard a shrill screech that was carried through the water. Kicking his legs, he swam down, spotting Shimmershadow. He felt a rush of adreneline as her eyes met his, large and pleading. He grabbed her scruff and pulled. A clump of her fur came out, but she was free. Shimmershadow paddled her paws feebly, trying to break free of the river's current. Shadowclaw swam as fast as he could with Shimmershadow's waterlogged body in his jaws. Finally, Shadowclaw felt his paws connect with the river's bottom, and dragged Shimmershadow's body to the shore. He thrust his head above the water, taking a deep breath. He pulled Shimmershadow onto the river bank. He pushed his paws into her chest and she spit out a ton of water. Her eyes snapped open, her vision still blurry. "Shadowclaw?" She croaked. "Yes, it's me." Shadowclaw rasped. "Yo-You saved me..." Shimmershadow's eyes were streaming with tears. "Yes. Yes I did." Shadowclaw murmured. "Come on, you need a medicine cat." Shadowclaw rasped. Shimmershadow's eyes had closed, and it was clear she was weak. Shadowclaw dragged her to the camp. "HELP! SHIMMERSHADOW NEEDS HELP!" He yowled. His soaked pelt had frozen over, now lined with little crystals of ice. Shimmershadow was shivering violently. "HELP HER! SOMEONE!" he wailed.

Ravenkit growled and pounced on Winterblaze's tail again. "Daddy!" ---- Firestorm poked her head out of the warrior's den and saw Shimmershadow, and her eyes widened. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 00:04, March 7, 2013 (UTC)
Countrypaw gasped when she saw her mother and father, and ran into her den to get herbs. She grabbed feverfew. She gave some to Shadowclaw. "Eat it. Now." She commanded. Shadowclaw blinked, shivering, and did as he was told. Countrypaw went to Shimmershadow. "Mom, eat this. It's feverfew. It'll help you. I need cobwebs, celadine for your eyes, coltsfoot for your paw pads, goldenrod, and dock. I'll be back." She scurried off to her den and sniffed out the herbs. Grabbing each one, she ran back to her mother. "Did she eat the feverfew, Shadowclaw?" The gray tom nodded. "Good." Countrypaw responded. She dried her mother's fur with her tail, then carefully applied the goldenrod poultice to the scratches on the silver she-cat's pelt. She also applied chewed up dock leaves to her mother's pelt. Shimmershadow flinched a little when the dock was put onto her scratches. "Oh, sorry. I forgot dock tends to sting when it is put on scratches." Countrypaw mewed. Next, the medicine cat apprentice put cobwebs over the wounds. "Mom, open your eyes again. There's a lot of dirt and other things in them, and I can't have you getting infected eyes." Countrypaw carefully sqeezed the celadine juice into her mother's eyes. "Next, your paw pads." Countrypaw mewed. She chewed up the coltsfoot and very carefully applied it to her mother's paw pads. "Mom, what did you do, anyway?" She asked. Shimmershadow's blood-shot eyes looked away from her kit. "I jumped in the river..." She rasped. Countrypaw's heart nearly stopped. "What would you do that for???" She demanded. Shimmershadow didn't answer the question. "Well?" Countrypaw asked. "I hurt Shadowclaw." Shimmershadow murmured. Shadowclaw leaned down next to Shimmershadow. Shimmershadow didn't move away, but leaned into his fur instead. "I realized that when he saved me... I was wrong. I do love him. I always will." Shimmershadow whispered. Shadowclaw purred. "Shimmershadow.... I love you. I always have. Shimmershadow.... Will you be my mate again?" Shadowclaw whispered. "Shadowclaw... I'm so sorry for everything... When I saw you coming for me in the river... I knew I was all wrong. You are my only love. Yes, Shadowclaw. I will always be your mate. Through the ups and downs, through the hardest times, I will always love you." Shimmershadow leaned over and "kissed" Shadowclaw.--- Dreampaw, Daringpaw and Flintpaw all watched their parents.

Crescentkit looked at all the cats getting back together. "Is ValentinesClan here?" she asked. Fernshade snorted. "They're not real cats, they're just a myth. Dopey doreen." she laughed. Crescentkit's whiskers crooked. "oh how rude." she huffed. "remember, mum, you were the one that told me about them." she said. Fernshade looked at her. "Eh, I got bored. And you were dropping, I had to nudge you to sleep, dear." she purred. Crescentkit blinked. "Oh. So you made them up?" she asked. Fernshade shook her head. "No, I think Blizzardfoot did. But I have no idea, she's the one who told me in the first place." she shrugged. Crescentkit flicked an ear. "K." -- Heronkit stretched. -- Blazeheart tipped his head at Shimmershadow and Shadowclaw. "Aww." he purred. →Danisnotonfire 16:29, March 8, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart walked to Fallingpaw, Opalpaw, and Topazpaw and smiled lightly "I have something to tell you three!" she mewed happily. Fallingpaw sadly opened his deep sea blue eye and sighed "What? Did daddy finally thaw!" he mewed looking around for his massive father. Wildheart shook her head "No, I had a dream, and Lifekit and your father were in it. Risingstar is okay, but he lost a life. But don't fret, Lifekit is taking care of him" she mewed. Fallingpaw looked at Wildheart confusingly "But, Lifekit died" he mewed, confused. Wildheart nodded "Lifekit is up in StarClan protecting us. She is strong, and she said she wishes all you well, and she misses you as much as she misses me or Risingstar" she mewed . Fallingpaw's eyes widened and he cheered "Lifekit is ok! Risingstar is ok!" she mewed, dnacing around. Wildheart shiftled a purr of amusment and sat down, gentaly licking her white whiskers And, me and Risingstar still love eachother she added to herself, his calico tail flickering.

Opalpaw jumped up and down! "Oh, Lifekit! I miss her so so so so so so so sooooo much! Me and her were the closest in the womb, you know, us being the cripples and all." Wildheart shot her daughter a look saying "you better stop" and Opalpaw whimpered. "Hehehe, I'll stop talking. BUT DADDY IS OKAY!" "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 21:07, March 8, 2013 (UTC)
Flintpaw cast a glance at the entrance to the camp. His attention snapped back to his mother when she let out a cough. "Countrypaw? Shimmershadow is coughing. She might catch greencough!" He mewed, eyes wide. Countrypaw shook her head. "I don't think we have any catmint or chickweed. If she develops greencough, I'll go asking around. But she doesn't need any herbs for the cough yet." Countrypaw meowed. She looked around for Beautifulface, hoping that her mentor would comment on what she had done.
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 21:47, March 8, 2013 (UTC)
Beautifulface listened as Countrypaw explained what she had done to help her mother. "Countrypaw, you forgot to look over the patient, looking for signs of Greencough." She went into her den and looked at the supply. "And the supply should always be full, so I will go out with Rising-" she cut off, remebering her brother's state. "I'll have to look for more herbs with Risingstar some other time." She looked at Countrypaw. "Check up on your mother, while I take Opalpaw and Fallingpaw out to get herbs." "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 21:51, March 8, 2013 (UTC)
"You never taught me to do that!" Countrypaw protested. She sighed and shiffed her mother over. "She is showing signs of sickness. I have a feeling that she'll catch whitecough soon enough." Countrypaw flinched as her mother's body shook with a violent cough. "And that the whitecough will become greencough." She added, listening to her mother's rattling lungs. "Hurry up when you go for the herbs. I won't have any other cat catch it."

Bautifulface twitched her whiskers at Countrypaw's comment and said nothing to avoid drama. She talked to her sister-in-code. Well, based on what she knew, ex-sister-in-code. "Can I borrow my kin to help me get some herbs? The weather..it's been really REALLY cold, and I need to stock up." "Does this darkness have a name..? Is it your name?'" 22:03, March 8, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart nodded "Ok, Fallingpaw, Opalpaw, Topazpaw, go with aunt Beaiutifulface" she mewed. Cheetahspirit is my life :3 22:16, March 8, 2013 (UTC)

Crescentkit leapt into a tree, and saw a Bee Hive. Badgerkit blinked at her. "Come down, you'll get stung!" he yelled. Crescentkit looked down in confusion. "No I won't." she mewed defiantly. Badgerkit sighed heavily and shook his head. "Whatever." he said. Crescentkit stared at the Hive. "These won't hurt me." she whispered. "They're tiny." She poked the Bee Hive. Badgerkit rolled his eyes. "Stupid kit. Do you have bees in your brain?" he asked. "haha sorry for the pun." he laughed. Crescentkit snorted. "awful pun." she mewed. Badgerkit shrugged. "Have fun getting stung." he hissed. Crescentkit began poking the Hive harder. She raised an eyebrow. "oh how rude." she said. "Am I that ugly?" she growled at the cave. Badgerkit coughed purposely. Crescentkit sniffed. "Thanks so much." She leapt down. Badgerkit cocked his head. "aww, you sad cos a bee stung you and you don't wanna tell me?" he cooed. Crescentkit shook her head honestly. "Nope, not even close." she said. Badgerkit stared at her in confusion, then looked up at the tree. "Maybe they're harmless then!" He jumped up and prodded the Hive gently, and bees swarmed all around him. Crescentkit's eyes widened and she leapt up, and let out a strange sound from her throat. The bees immediately stopped harming Badgerkit and retreated back into their Hive. Crescentkit stopped the noise at once. Badgerkit flattened his ears. "What was that?" he asked. Crescentkit shrugged. "I have no idea." She tried the noise again. Badgerkit's ears were creased. "Stop it!" he screeched. Crescentkit stopped. "Sorry." she mewed. Badgerkit tried to produce the same noise, with Crescentkit's help. Badgerkit was out of breath. "It's impossible." he hissed. Crescentkit laughed. "Not for me." →Danisnotonfire 09:25, March 9, 2013 (UTC)
Shimmershadow looked at her mate. "I love you, Shadowclaw." She murmured. Shadowclaw purred "I love you too, Shimmershadow." He mewed. He drew back as Shimmershadow started to cough. He looked worried for a moment, then turned his head to look for Countrypaw or Beautifulface. Countrypaw was already running over to them. The medicine cat apprentice sniffed Shimmershadow, and looked up, eyes round with fear. "She... She has greencough." Countrypaw paused. "Shadowclaw.... I can't have you or anyone else getting sick. Shimmershadow needs space so she can get rid of this greencough, and keep it from the rest of the Clan." Countrypaw meowed. Shadowclaw's eyes locked with Shimmershadow's. "You will make it through this." He meowed. Shimmershadow's eyes were round with fear and pain. "I love you." She rasped. She coughed and sighed, setting her head on her paws. Countrypaw looked around. "I need catmint, or chickweed. Oh, I wish I had checked our supplies earlier..." Countrypaw mewed, looking down at her paws, her green eyes glinting, full of regret.

A huge boulder fell on the block of ice that was Risingstar's body, crushing it. Risingstar's nine lives slipped away from him, and he looked at his Clan.

"RISINGSTAR!" Countrypaw screeched. She tried with all her strength to move the boulder. It wouldn't budge. "RISINGSTAR!" She screeched again. --- Shimmershadw screeched in fear. Flintpaw had been stading next to the ice block. His tail had been crushed with the leader. He couldn't move it out from under the weight of the boulder. "MOMMY! RISINGSTAR'S UNDER THERE!" He wailed in grief, not caring abut his tail. "MOMMY! DADDY! HELP HIM!" Flintpaw wailed, crying hard.--- Shadowclaw ran into the boulder with his shoulders, trying to move it. "WARRIORS OF WINTERCLAN! HELP ME MOVE THE BOULDER! COME, NOW! OUR LEADER IS UNDER THERE!" He barked orders left and right. He can't be dead! Hawkheart will not be leader in my Clan!

Countrypaw stared at Azuregaze, green fire burning in her eyes. "The risen has fallen!" She hissed, eyes burning. "A survivor will gain leadership, in place of the feared. It is the time of azure shadows!" She hissed, her fur standing on end, staring at Azuregaze. --- Shadowclaw stopped struggling, admitting defeat. He heard his daughter. "Azure... Azuregaze!

Azuregae, who had been watching the spectacle and vaguely annoyed that he wouldn't be abloe to retire anytime soon because of this lack of a leader, pricked his ears and looked around for COuntrypaw when he heard 'azure'. He froze when she recited the prophecy, gazing in slight alarm at Shadowclaw. Dafuq. He shook his head a little to shake of the initial shock, flattening his ears. He blinked his good eye, slightly shocked that he was declared to be the new leader, despite his age. "W-what? Me?

Countrypaw shook her head. "StarClan has spoken. You are the right choice. It's almost moonhigh. You know the code, Azuresta-Azuregaze. And, I think the prophecy I got was actually clear.

Fernshade stared at Risingstar in horror. Even though she didn't get along with the tom, she couldn't help but feel a wave of grief pass over her. Crescentkit stared at Risingstar's corpse and sighed sadly. →Danisnotonfire 18:53, March 17, 2013 (UTC)
Shadowclaw flicked the tip of his tail iritibly. "Where in the Dark Forest is Azurestar?" He mumbled.

"Fernshade, shut it. He has been gone, and so has my daughter, for almost 2 sunrises. I will be paitient no longer." Shadowclaw snapped.

Irisfrost put a paw on the leader's limp body. "You were my first love, and now a good friend. Good bye, Risingstar..." she whispered, resting her head on her mate's shoulder. "Talonclaw...I'm expecting your kits again, I believe," she murmured.---- Solarkit blinked at him.Silverstar 21:48, March 18, 2013 (UTC)
Talonclaw's green eyes widened. "R-Really? You are?" --- Ravenkit stared at Risignstar's body, her blue eyes expressionless. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 21:54, March 18, 2013 (UTC)
Torchkit put a paw gently on Ravenkit's shoulder.---- Solarkit sighed, ruffling his pelt.---- Irisfrost purred and nodded. "Yeah!" she meowed happily.----Coyotefang nuzzled Shiversight, muscles rippling.---- Webpaw stared at Gempaw.--- Leafpaw nudged Opalpaw. "Come on, lets go for a walk," he murmured gently.---- Opalpaw nodded, eyes full of tears, and followed him our of camp.---- Gempaw watched them leave, jealous.Silverstar 23:13, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Swiftpaw sat silently in the clearing, glancing around at the cat hustling about the camp. Sadness for his past leader sunk in his belly, but he couldn't suppress the excitement that his mentor would succeed Risingstar. He fluffed up his pelt against the cold, and felt it best to stay silent in honor of his leader's death. He hung his head, wondering what the future of the Clan would be like.
Iolitefrost wrapped his tail around his kits, glancing at Goldenmoon. "I hope Azurestar will be like Risingstar. A good leader.." -- Tanzaniteshadow flicked her tail, calmly watching the drama in the shadows. -- Dyingpaw flicked his tail and looked over at Topazpaw and Fallingpaw. "You okay with Risingstar dead?" He sniffed. — Crys Just keep swimming 19:34, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
"Guppysplash?" Breezesky called softly. She hadn't seen him in a while, and it was worrying her. She sniffed the air, tasting for his scent, but never found it. Sighing, she walked toward the warriors den. He had to be somewhere, she just wished he was here, because she felt a little lost, without him.

Fallingpaw shuffled his paws. His tears fell to the ground as he looked up at Dyingpaw. "No, I'm not. He was my father, my mentor, too. And he's dead." He mewed weakly, looking around for Lightningpaw and Azurestar. He pushed his way past Topazpaw and Dyingpaw and sat near the entrance to the camp. --- Shadowclaw watched as Shimmershadow looked at Risingstar's body. "I suppose we should prepare for his burial." She whispered. Reclusefang nodded and went to fetch mint and rosemary. He groomed the leader's black tabby fur, and gently shut his eyes. He rubbed the mint and rosemary across the fallen leader's pelt, whispering a goodbye as he did so.

Dyingpaw looked over at Risingstar's body, grief clear in his one good eye. He padded over near Shadowclaw, trying to take in the body that once held the greatest spirit ever. "Goodbye, Risingstar." He murmured as he padded away. — Crys Just keep swimming 20:13, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
Solarkit sat down, ears drooped.---- Leafpaw smiled, the forest echoing with birds. Opalpaw giggled as a stick fell and smacked into his face. "Hey!" he purred, batting the she-catt's ears. She yelped as her leg gave out. "Easy, don't splatter me with mud," meowed Leafpaw, tail twitching. She frowned, getting up. "Let's climb trees!" murmurd Opalpaw. Leafpaw wrinkled his nose. "Those annoying birds live there," he mutttered. Opalpaw frowned again. She psuhed her nose into his fur, making him purr. "Will you be my mate, when we're warriors?" he asked, smiling. Opalpaw's eyes glittered, and she nodded. "You'll not live to be warriors," a voice growled. (No one help them, only Gempaw can)Silverstar 00:09, March 21, 2013 (UTC)
Breezesky curled into her nest, silent tears streaming down her cheeks. She missed Risingstar. He was a good leader, fair and kind. How could she let go of him already? More than ever, she wished Guppysplash were with her. Did he even know that Risingstar was gone? Where was he? Was he hurt? Okay? She couldn't answer any of her own questions. Sighing again, the tears still streaming down her cheeks, she closed her eyes. ShoonDerpI'm not perfect but I keep trying~ 00:49, March 21, 2013 (UTC)
Leafpaw barred his fangs at the rogue. "You're the one who'll stop us? Bring it on, Flea-bag!!!" he spat. Four more rogues came out from behind him, smirking. Opalpaw's fur bristling in fear as the rogues lept at them. She screeched in agony as a rogue racked his claw down her back. She spun around and lashed at his face. She noticed Leafpaw fling a tom away. The others had attacked her. "H-Help!" she wailed. Leafpaw looked at the furious rogues, not wanting to get hurt. "T-Take them yourselves, I don't want to get hurt!" he growled. Opalpaw's heart burst in pain at what he said. They claws at her body, making her feel weaker and weaker.---- Gempaw heard Opalpaw's screech, fur bristling in fear. "OPALPAW!" he yowled, racing to her. He flung a rogue off her, and lashed at a tabby tom's face. He nipped a white she-cat's tail, and knocked a black tom over. They fled, covered in wounds. He helped Opalpaw to her paws, eyes full of concern. His brother was gone. "You alright?" he asked. Opalpaw sighed. "My body's fine, but my heart's not..." she whispered. Gempaw cocked his head. "Whaddya mean?" he asked, red eyes shining. Opalpaw frowned. "He left me to pretty much get killed...H-He doesn't like me anymore..." she whimpered. Gempaw's pelt bristled in anger. "My brother's just pathetic!" he snorted, putting a paw soothingly on her shoulder. "You're a great cat, Opalpaw, got talk to him," he murmured. Opalpaw whipped away her tears and tore after Leafpaw. "L-Leafpaw!" she meowed, catching up. "What?! I can' hang out with a broken cat like you, you'll never be a warrior! Go away, flea-bag!" he snarled. Opalpaw put her ears back, hurt. Gempaw caught up, eyes flaming with rage. "She's going to be a warrior, she's a good warrior already!" he spat. The brothers faced eachother, pelt fluffed, claws extended. Leafpaw flung himself at his brother, claws sinking into his shoulders. Gempaw snarled in anger, lashing out at his belly. Leafpaw shrieked in pain, backing off. The two leapt at eachother at the same time. Gempaw missed him, but Leafpaw easily lashed out at his shoulder. Yelping in pain, Gempaw fell, gasping. "Not so weak now, huh?!" spat Leafpaw. Gempaw's eyes flashed in anger. "You still are, coward!" he snarled, leaping at Leafpaw. He lashed deep into his throat, and lashed at an eye. Leafpaw screeched in pain, and pelted off. "That's for hurting Opalpaw!" spat Gempaw.Silverstar 01:14, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
Briarpaw, out on patrol, saw Gempaw and Opalpaw, and was elbowed out of the way as an angry Leafpaw strook past. She looked at Gempaw, raising an eyebrow, as if to say What the hell happened here? "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 16:36, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
Lightningpaw weaved through her clanmates, cutting her way over to Fallingpaw. "Fallingpaw!" she meowed, resting her tail across the tabby's shoulders. "H-he's gone," she choked, leaning against her friend. "It just happened so fast...."
Azurestar walked back into camp, standing taller than before. His sister, Fadeshadow, had been lying by the entrance, jerking awake at the sound of someone approaching. Jumping onto her feet, and relaxed, noticing it was her brother. She had to do a double-take to realize that his eye had returned. "Azure! Your eye's back!" she purred, running over and bumping heads with him. Azurestar purred, nodding. "I have to go appoint a deputy," he meowed, letting his sister step aside so he could enter camp.
The black tom bounded nimbly around clanmates, leaping up onto highrock with a single, well-timed bound. He walked to the edge, surveying the camp. "May all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the highrock for a clan meeting!" he yowled, voice no longer sounding quite so elderly. He waited for the grieving cats to assemble, and cleared his voice, before continuing. "May StarClan listen and approve of my choice- let Shadowclaw be the new deputy of WinterClan." Azurestar looked around the assembled Clan, spotting his deputy instantly, and waiting for the tom to jump over and join him.

Guppysplash slipped into camp with an annoyed grunt. He smiled at Azurestar, padding over to his life long friend. He flicked the black tom's ear with a purr. "Congratulations! I knew from the time you, me, Reedstar, Bluekit, Fadeshadow, and Moonsight were kits together in the nursery that you would lead one day. It seems that time is upon us!" he yowled, touching his friend's nose. He looked at Breezesky and called her over with a flick of his tail. Cryptid Yo
Shadowclaw blinked, surprized. "Azurestar, I accept. I promise to do my best to fulfill my duties."

Azurestar nodded, stifling a purr. "Good, good. Now, go rest, as we'll need to send out patrols later...but for now, we can grieve," he meowed, dipping his head. He climbed back down the highrock, pressing his nose into Risingstar's fur. "Goodbye, young one...you were a great apprentice, and this shouldn't have been your time...far too young to go," he murmured softly, getting up after a moment to go sit with his sister off to the side. Fadeshadow nudged her brother with her shoulder, a quizzical look on her face. Azurestar raised an eyebrow, as if asking why she seemed that way, and Fadeshadow shrugged. "I was going to ask you whether or not you saw Willowkit, Leopardkit, Ospreytalon, and Beakkit up there...but you aren't allowed to share, are you?" Azurestar sighed, nodding. "I'm not supposed to...but, yes, they were all there. Ospreytalon doesn't look changed at all, and your kits were beautiful," he reassured the former queen in as quiet a tone as he could muster. Fadeshadow sighed, relieved, and nodded.
Shallowsplash had listened to her new leader's news, and nodded, walking back to the warrior's den to sleep. The tabby hadn't been close enough to the former leader to stay up all night out there, and she missed the warmth of her nest. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 00:50, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Shadowclaw nodded at his leader and yawned, padding over to Risingstar's body. "My former apprentice... It was not your time. Say hello to Rosethorn and Foxshade... And Skytail and Cometshard... And all of my kin for me. Watch over us. Rest easy, Risingstar." He mewed softly, pushing his nose into the fallen leader's fur.

Maroonsun padded over to Shallowsplash. "Hey," he murmured.---- Torchkit looked at Azurestar. "What about us?" he squeaked.---- Gempaw's mucules rippled under his dark tabby pelt, red eyes flamming with anger. His wouds ozzed with blood. "Come on, Opalpaw," murmured Gempaw, putting his tail on her back, and leading her to camp.---- Leafpaw laid in a tree, licking his wounds angerly.---- Webpaw glarred at Opalpaw.Silverstar 01:35, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Leafpaw sighed, resting his head on his paws, letting his blood flow from the wound on his eye. Pain struck his heart when he noticed Opalpaw and Gempaw. He whimpered, looking away.Silverstar 02:08, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Snowpaw tilted her head. "Why do you fight with Opalpaw and expect her to love you?" she asked her brother. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 13:16, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Shallowsplash opened an eye, seeing who it was. Slowly, she sat upright enough to lift her head. "Hey," she murmured in response.
Azurestar noticed the kits, realizing they were due to become apprentices. "In the morning...after the vigil is done," he told them, dipping his head. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 15:09, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
"Yesssssssss!" Ravenkit jumped up and down. "Behave." Icefeather scolded. Ravenkit's ears drooped. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 15:14, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
