Shadowclaw purred as he thought of the times he and Risingstar shared. He looked around for the elders. The vigil was over. It was time for the burrial. --- Reclusefang sighed and lifted the leader's body onto his shoulders.

Snowshadow sighed, looking over at Risingstar. I still remember the moment Red-eye came to me, asking to help Risingstar and Beautifulface to reach their goal. Did I do that correctly? She griefed for the fallen leader. — Crys Just keep swimming 16:07, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Bramblethorn shufffled over and flanked Reclusefang. ---- Beautifulface slipped over to the elders. "Would it be to much for me tp come along?" she asked, her blue eyes filled with pain. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 17:12, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Amberflight had lifted Risingstar onto her shoulders, her fur lightly brushing against Reclusefang's. She perked her ears up when Beautifulface approached, giving a nod. "Of course you can," she meowed, heavy regret in her tone. He was too young...heck, he was my age...he had a long life ahead of him...he never even got to see his kits become warriors. The ginger she-cat began to limp out of camp, guiding the rest of the elders, along with the medicine cat, out for their former leader's burial. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 21:35, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Shimmershadow and Flintpaw held the brambles apart for the elders. "Rest in peace, Risingstar." Flintpaw whispered as the elders past them. --- Recluefang purred at Amberflight's touch. (Elder love? I think yes. xD)
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 21:52, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
(Perhaps. xD) Amberflight flicked an ear, glancing at Reclusefang from the corner of her eye, but brushed the thought away. She continued limping, sharp pain jolting up her twisted leg each time she set it on the ground. She hobbled over to the area where they had intended on burying Risingstar, crouching down to roll him gently of her shoulders. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 21:56, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Reclusefang knelt down at an awkward angle, letting the leader slide off his shoulders. He looked up at Amberflight. "Amberflight, are you ready?" He asked. His eyes twinkled, and his whiskers twitched, but if it was with pain or something else, it was unidentifiable.
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 22:04, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Amberflight straightened up, glancing down at the body of Risingstar. "Yeah, I'm ready," she meowed, leaning downwards to begin to nose Risingstar into his grave. The leader's short, thick fur smelled faintly of rosemary, but Amberflight knew it was merely the burial herbs to make the pelt smell better throughout the vigil. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 22:10, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Recluse fang stood next to Amberflight, his pelt lightly touching her's as he pushed Risingstar's body into the grave. Once his body was fully in the grave, he started slowy scooping the dirt back onto the leader's body.
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 22:15, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Amberflight joined in, taking a small, awkward, half-step away from Reclusefang while scooping the dirt in on top of Risingstar's body. A few dirt clumps became caught in her claws, but she ignored it, deciding to clean it later and just get this job over with. The burial itself was always tedious for the injured she-cat, her leg being badly injured when she was hit by a monster while on patrol a few moons ago. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 22:18, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Reclusefang puched his nose into Amberflight's fur, overcome by sadness. He remebered what it felt like to have a wonderful cat die, and doing the burial was bringing back the memories. Hailstorm... My first love... he thought as tears streamed down his face. He pulled away from Amberflight and continued the burial, still sobbing.
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 22:28, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Clawtooth arrived at the burial to inspect the burial mound. "Did you two make sure that Risingstar was buried properly? Our former leader should be buried correctly, you know." he meowed. "It is sad that he has died, but we must move on, and by buring him, we are moving on with our lives." Bbunlegs 22:53, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Recluefang looked at Clawtooth. "Clawtooth, can I show you something?"
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 22:57, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Reclusefang led Clawtooth over to a mound of dirt. "So... This is my mate's grave. She... She was struck by a monster.... Less than a moon away from giving birth to our kits."
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 23:22, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Bramblethorn curled his tail over his paws and began tidying up the grave. --- Beautifulface stared at heap of dirt where her brother lay. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 23:52, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentkit's pale green eyes opened to filtered light that shafted in through the gaps between the dew-wet vines that hung over the Nursery. Stretching to her paws, she saw her brother's nest rustle beside her. "Today's the day." he whispered. "I wonder who my mentor will be! What if it's Azurestar?" His eyes lit up. Crescentkit flicked an ear. "I think Azurestar would prefer to mentor a cat worthy of his skills." she muttered. Badgerkit glared at her. "I'm worthy of his skills." he retorted. Crescentkit's whiskers twitched. "Right. That's why you prodded a bees' nest and blamed me when you got stung." she snorted. Badgerkit's fur fluffed. "You did it too!" he argued. Crescentkit looked at him. "Am I saying I'm worthy of Azurestar's skills. Nope." she replied. Badgerkit sat down, grumbling. "Whatever, Crezz. Let's go outside and wait." he said. Crescentkit nodded. "Okay." She walked outside and sat in the clearing. She walked over to her sister. "Hey, sis!" she meowed. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 12:09, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Azurestar woke up slowly, remembering he had to take his apprentice out for training, and that several cats were ready for various ceremonies. He got up, the usual stiffness in his joints not bothering him for once. He blinked his eyes, happy to have his full vision back. Stretching for a brief amount of time, he tried to remember all the names he had come up with for the new warriors and the mentors he had chosen for the new apprentices. He climbed onto highrock, shaking out his pelt. The tom cleared his voice, before yowling the age-old gathering call: "May all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the highrock for a clan meeting!"
When a fair amount of cats had gathered, along with all of his cats ready for their ceremonies, he continued to speak, "Ravenkit, Torchkit, Breezekit, Crescentkit, Badgerkit, Frostkit, and Dawnkit, all step forward." When the kits had done so, he looked back out to the crowd. "You are all known as Ravenpaw, Torchpaw, Breezepaw, Crescentpaw, Badgerpaw, Frostpaw, and Dawnpaw, respectively. Ravenpaw will have Tigerleap as a mentor, Torchpaw will have Iolitefrost, Breezepaw will have Sedgeheart, Crescentpaw will have Guppyfin, Badgerpaw will have Salmonstream, Frostpaw will have Maroonsun, and, finally, Dawnpaw will have Daringheart"
With the apprentices done, he moved on to the long list of warriors. "Will Briarpaw, Lightningpaw, Dyingpaw, Leafpaw, Gempaw, Flintpaw, Daringpaw, Dreampaw, Snowpaw, Toppazpaw, Opalpaw, Fallingpaw, Sapphirepaw, Bramblepaw, Chillpaw, and Eaglepaw step forward?" Waiitng for the new apprentices to leave and the older apprentices to step forward, Azurestar continued. "Briarpaw, you will now be known as Briarshine, Lightningpaw as Lightningstorm, Dyingpaw as Dyingflame, Leafpaw as Leafgaze, Gempaw as Gemheart, Flintpaw as Flintpelt, Daringpaw as Daringheart, Dreampaw as Dreamflight, Snowpaw as Snowbreeze, Topazpaw as Topazmist, Opalpaw as Opalgaze, Fallingpaw as Fallingheart, Sapphirepaw as Sapphirewave, Bramblepaw as Brambleshade, Chillpaw as Chillfoot, and Eaglepaw as Eaglefeather." The black cat paused to take a deep breath. "StarClan admires all of your talents and strengths, including your faults, and we all welcome you as warriors of WinterClan." ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 15:28, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
The Clan chanted all of the new names. Shimmershadow ran up to Flintpelt, purring. "You made it to be a warrior, little one..." Shimmershadow murmured happily. "I did! And I plan on making it to be an elder!" He mewed. Dreamflight and Daringheart nuzzled their brother. Countrypaw padded happily over to her siblings. "Congratulations, guys! I'm so proud of you!" She mewed, licking their faces. Shadowclaw walked up to his mate and kits. "My beautiful kits..." He whisped. "I'm so proud of you. You have been through many things since you where born. But you've endured it all. You are true warriors. WinterClan is lucky to have you." His deep voice cracked with pride and joy for his kits.
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 15:34, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Crowfoot began making nests for the new warriors in the warrior's den. He worked on Dreamflight's nest a bit longer than the others, for he had a crush on the young she-cat. ---- "Listen," Sedgeheart told Breezepaw. "Tomorrow, after you go frolic and do your kithood things, we're training. No nonsense." Bbunlegs 15:52, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw smiled and touched noses to Guppyfin. But she was quickly distracted when she saw a butterfly. Her gaze wondered towards it and she was oblivious to the fact that Guppyfin was speaking to her. Badgerpaw saw her and rolled her eyes, nipping her tail. Crescentpaw hissed and snapped back into action. "What was that, again?" she asked, her voice edged with anger for Badgerpaw. Badgerpaw flattened his ears and walked off. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 15:59, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Swiftpaw cheered loudly for his 7 new denmates and the many new warriors. He panted after shouting out the many names. He backed out of the busy crowd congratulating eachother and scouted out his mentor. He spotted he scarred black pelt in the crowd and worked his way towards him. "Azurestar!" He put his tail up high in excitement for what he may be learning that day.
Dreamflight padded drowsily into the warrior's den, wanting to get as much rest as she could before the vigil that night. She yawned as she entered the den, blinking as her eyes got used to the dim lighting. She saw Crowfoot making nests and purred. "Hello, Crowfoot." she mewed, her voice heavy with exhaustion. "Did you just make all of us nests?" She asked, cocking her head. She eyes the one he was working on now. She glanced at the other nests, seeing they were much less comfortable looking than the one he was standing in front of. She blinked and purred. "Ok, who is she?" She giggled. "Who's the lucky she-cat?" Her whiskers twitched in amusement.
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 16:28, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Dreamflight blinked in surprize. "For... Me?" She sniffed the nest then climbed into it, doing a little circle before she laid down. "StarClan's kits, this is comfy!" She exclaimed. "It's big too! I could fit a whole other cat in here with me!" She purred. "Thank you, Crowfoot.: She climbed out of her nest and licked his nose. "I love it."
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 16:35, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Snowbreeze fluffed up her fur. Jeez, I really hope the vigil isn't that cold. --- Breezepaw nosed Sedgeheart. "Hi." ---- Ravenpaw headbutted Tigerleap. ---- Icefeather looked at her kits and her heart swelled with pride. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 16:37, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Dreamflight watched Crowfoot pad to his nest. She sighed and laied back down in her's. What is this feeling in my chest? Is... Is it... Love? Do I love Crowfoot?

Dyingflame smiled as he padded over into his new nest in the warrior's den. -- Sapphirewave flicked her tail, a glint in her gaze as she sat still outside the den, alreadly yearning to start the vigil. — Crys Just keep swimming 17:54, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Azurestar leaped down from the rock, searching for his apprentice. Hearing Swiftpaw call his name, he bounded towards that area, instantly locating his apprentice. He stifled a purr. "Ready to go? Sorry I couldn't make you a warrior quite yet..but, trust me, you'll be joining them very soon." -- Guppyfin touched noses with her new apprentice, her tabby-and-white tail lashing excitedly. "So, today, we'll be going on a walk around the bor-" she cut herself off, watching her new apprentice lose focus and chase after a butterfly. The young warrior emitted a soft sigh of exasperation, rolling her eyes. I'm sure all 'paws are like this at first...I hope. -- Lightningstorm ran off from the crowd, over to her mother. Fadeshadow purred, butting heads with her daughter. "You did wonderful, Lightningstorm," the dark gray she-cat purred, closing her eyes. Lightningstorm fluffed up her silver pelt, looking as if she were about to burst with pride. "Lightningstorm...I love it!" she chirped. Fadeshadow chuckled softly. "Your uncle has always had a knack for naming, I will admit." ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 19:03, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Dyingflame twitched his ear as he set up his nest in a comfortable corner in the Warrior's Den. He glanced at the warriors surrounding him, feeling slightly cramped. Is this what the warriors feel every time? He thought. — Crys Just keep swimming 19:21, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw snapped back into focus. "Sorry, sorry. A walk around the border? Ok, let's go!" she said, darting out of camp. I have to focus. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 19:26, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
"I know, right? You too," Lightningstorm meowed at her sister. fadeshadow leaned over, licking Briarshine on top of her head. "I'm so proud of both of you..if only Leopardkit and Beakkit were here with you..." Or Willowkit, the queen thought remorsefully, wondeirng where her tiny daughter was now. She's up in StarClan..hopefully playing with her younger sisters, Petalkit, and Bluekit...I hope Reedstar's looking out for them all. And Ospreytalon..that furrball. Lightningstorm shook out her fluffy, ungroomed fur, wondering where Fallingheart was, as the tom was her best friend within the clan. -- Guppyfin purred, amused. "Yeah, understood. Let's go," she meowed, standing up and walkign slow enough to the entrance that her apprentice could keep up without having to take strides too long. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 19:45, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw stopped as she heard rustling. She heard her mentor's sigh. "No! It's a pheasent." she exclaimed. Seeing her mentor's baffled expression, she knead the ground. "Don't just stand there, help me, you mouse-brain!" She darted off. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 19:50, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Guppyfin rolled her eyes, following her apprentice. "No, don't catch it. We have plenty of prey going to waste already!" she shouted, stopping after a few strides. The ginger-and-white tabby sat down, a tad annoyed that she hadn't already had a day of training and her apprentice had already run off. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 01:40, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Swiftpaw leaned down to lick his chest fur smooth and attempted to put on a calm, mature demeanor. "Don't worry, I know you'll make me a warrior when I'm ready. I haven't been training that long after all. So what are we learning today?" His pelt fluffed up slightly in excitement. A training session with the Clan leader! Surely the other apprentices would look up to him much more with a mentor like Azurestar.
Leafgaze glarred at his brother as Opalgaze licked Gemheart's shoulder, resting her head on his shoulder.---- Torchpaw tackled Ravenpaw. "We're gonna kill all the badgers in the world!" he purred.---- Solarpaw yawned, going to train with his mentor.Silverstar 14:21, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw came back a while later, a bird dangling from her jaws. "Caught it!" she purred. "Not as big as I'd imagined, but ahwell, it'll feed someone!" she said, dropping it down at her mentor's feet. "So! What's next?" she asked, full of energy. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 14:32, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Solarpaw and his mentor slid out of camp to battle train. His mentor was Lightningflash. "Lets battle train." growled the black warrior. "Just do what you feel to defend yourself, no claws!" meowed the warrior, leaping at the smaller cat. Solarpaw quickly laid down, paws up. Lightningflash landed on Solarpaw's paws, and was flung into a tree. He purred at the apprentice.Silverstar 14:35, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Azurestar purred, amused by his apprentice's behavior. "Well, today, we're going to work on stalking rabbits. Those little buggers are a pain to hunt, but have enough meat on them come winter to feed most of the kits in the nursery," the leader meowed, flicking his tail to beckon Swiftpaw to the camp entrance. "Let's go to the training hollow for this." -- Guppyfin bit her tongue, trying to hold back a sharp retort at her apprentice. "Nothing now. The first rule you should know is to never run off without a mentor until you're old enough to fight properly. Had there been a fox stalking the same bird, you'd be dead by now. Bring your prey and we'll go back to the camp, so I can show you how to clean the elder's bedding," she meowed, a sharp tone under her voice. Obviously, the tabby wasn't pleased, and she turned, leading the way back into camp. "I'll show you the borders another day." ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 14:38, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw flattened her ears. "How rude." she hissed quietly. She shrugged it off and headed back to camp, darting ahead of her mentor. Hearing an angry sigh, she slowed to a halt and slumped behind the tabby. "Sorry..." she muttered. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 14:40, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Lightningflash leapt at his apprentice, clinging onto his shoulder. Solarpaw clung to his mentor's shoulders, and the two rolled down the hill, snarling. They crashed into Crescentpaw and Guppyfin, yowling in suprise. The two were flung apart, pelts fluffed. "Nice, my apprentice," panted Lightningflash, flattening his pelt. Solarpaw blinked. "Sorry guys," he sighed.Silverstar 14:43, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Guppyfin caught the remark from her apprentice, merely rolling her eyes. She continued walking, not emitting a sound as her apprentice dashed ahead of her. When the 'paw came back, she nodded her head in acknowledgment of the apology, but kept walking without any other word. Finally they reached camp, and she walked over to the elder's den, poking her head inside. Amberflight was the only elder inside, still sound asleep. Gradually, however, she woke up, noticing Guppyfin and meowing a greeting. The two chatted for a moment, and Guppyfin told the young she-cat that they were cleaning the nests. Amberlfight stifled an amused purr, dipping her head and leaving the den so the mentor and apprentice could get to work. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 14:48, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw's nose wrinkled at the smell, but she shook her head and focused. She looked up at her mentor, and then down at the fowl-smelling nests. "So.." she coughed. "What do I do? Just... you know, get rid of the old stuff?" she asked, hoping she did something right. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 14:55, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Solarpaw smiled at his mentor, purring happily. "You'll be a great warrior, my apprentice." meowed Lightningflash, nuding the tom to his paws. "Let's go help Crescentpaw," he ordered. "But I want to train!" peeped Solarpaw as Lightningflash glarred down at him. "No, clean the nests," he growled, shooing the tom away. Solarpaw padded over to Crescentkit. "I've got to help, or Lightningflash will gnaw my head off," he mewed.---- Irisfrost streatched, belly large.---- Leafgaze snarled at his brother, and padded away, tail lashing with anger.---- Webspider tackled Opalgaze. "You stole him!" she spat. "I did what?" asked Opalgaze, hearing from the wrong ear. "Stole Gemcave!" snarled WEbspider, fur fluffed. "Did not!" hissed Opalgaze, shoving her away. Gemcave licked her ear. "did she harm you?" he asked, worried. "No," murmured Opalgaze.Silverstar 15:00, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
A thought of doubt crept into Swiftpaw's mind. He knew he wasn't very fast, and was worried about disappointing his mentor. His tail dragged slightly in worry, but he kept his doubts to himself and padded after Azurestar. The apprentice took a deep breath of the clean, cold air. He attempted to convince himself he'd be able to do what his mentor expected as he neared the clearing.
Guppyfin nodded. "We roll up the soiled moss so we don't have to touch anything, and then we go out and gather more, clean, dry moss. Like so," the tabby meowed, using her forepaws to roll up a particularly smelly nest so the roots of the moss were all she had to touch. Picking up the bundle in her jaws, she walked out of the den and dropping it off in the dirtplace. Coming back, she waited for her apprentice to do them same for the other few nests, before they could go out and gather the bedding. -- Azurestar lead the way, bounding into the training hollow. The cool, crisp air felt good in his lungs, and he breathed it in greedily, in attempts to catch his breath. He sat down, waiting for Swiftpaw to follow him. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 15:10, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw tried to do the same, but moss spilled either side. She grabbed a piece in her jaws, but dropped it in disgust. "Yuck!" she hissed. She carried the rest out and dropped it where her mentor had shown. She then headed back. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 15:14, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Swiftpaw approached his mentor, stopping in front of him, he sat back on his haunches. He gulped nervously but kept on a serious face. "So... what's first?" He pricked his ears up, making sure he was listening very carefully. He was determined to get it right and impress his new leader. Only his rapidly twitching tail gave away his worry.
Snowbreeze looked at Leafgaze. "Please don't fight." she begged. --- Ravenpaw nosed Torchpaw. "Wanna ask our mentors if we can train together?" --- Talonclaw sunned himself next to Irisfrost. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 19:06, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Stoatpelt padded beside Quailnose. "U-um.. Quailnose, do you think we should go hunting for t-the elders? Clawtooth has been looking really scrawny lately." she meowed shyly. Conversing with others was not one of the red-brown she-cat's fortes, being a rather meek and timid cat. Her copper eyes winced as she waited for a a response from the young warrior. Bbunlegs 01:32, March 26, 2013 (UTC) Dyingflame stuck his head out of the warrior's den, restless and all ready to start hunting right away. He eyed a silver kit dashing out of the nursery, and he purred. Seedkit suddenly noticed the ginger tom watching her, and shyed back, dashing back into the nursery. Dyingflame cocked his head, realizing Seedkit didn't want to be seen. -- Seedkit sat down in the middle of the nursery, aching to become an apprentice. Will anyone take me in as my mentor? Do they like me? She thought worridly. Iciclekit snuck out of camp. — Crys Just keep swimming 01:39, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
Tigerleap prodded Ravenpaw. "Hey! Ready to train?" he asked in a friendly manner. -- Once Crescentpaw had finished the task, she looked up at her mentor. "So, what now?" she asked, tail-tip twitching. She raised an eyebrow in impatience for her mentor's response. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 13:36, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
"Good job," Guppyfin meowed as her apprentice returned. "Remember to open your jaws as wide as you can when picking up the rolls, so you don't drop it. But you're getting close. Keep it up, there's five more nests to do." The tabby-and-white she-cat sat down, curing her tail around hr paws, near the entrance to the elder's den, to keep an eye on Crescentpaw. -- Quailnose jumped slightly when Stoatpelt talked to her, relaxing when she saw who it was. "Not right now, I just got back from patrol, and I'm exhausted. Sorry!" she chirped, giving a small smile and heading back to the warrior's den to sleep. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)つ──☆: ・ﾟswiggity swooty i summon the booty 13:31, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw shot her mentor a look to say 'you're kidding, right?', but when she looked at her, she knew that she'd get told off if she didn't do the job. She grabbed the moss with wide jaws, clamping down on it with sharp teeth. She carried the fowl-tasting moss to the dirtplace. As she returned, she did the same for the last four. She took longer carrying back the last one, as she had picked up some fresh moss to make the new nests. "All they ever do, I hear, is spoon spoon spoon," 13:42, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
Tigerleap smiled. "I hear you want Torchpaw with us? I'll ask his mentor for you. I'll be right back." he said. "I will always be your little brother, no matter how famous I am" -Niall 19:23, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
Shadowclaw organized patrols. "Flintpelt, I'd like you to lead a hunting patrol. I know you have just become a warrior, but I think you're ready. Take Dreamflight, Crowfoot, and Gustywind. Between the four of you, I expect you'll catch a good amount of prey." He meowed. --Flintpelt nodded and called for his patrol. "Dreamflight, Crowfoot, and Gusywind! Hunting patrol!" --- Dreamflight lifted her head at the sound of her name. She yawned and blinked, shaking her gray tabby fur as she rose to her paws. She padded out of the den and saw her brother in the middle of the camp, looking around expectantly. "Coming!" She mewed, sprinting over to the dark gray tom.--- Shimmershadow watched her kits, heart swelling with pride.

Gustywind and Crowfoot padded over near Dreamflight and Flintpelt. "Hey, kids, you better get ready before we leave." the brown tabby meowed, twitching an ear. Crowfoot was about to pad over to look at a jasmine vine, but Gustywind jerked his tail before he could do so. The black tom hissed at the senior warrior, but he only just rolled his eyes. "Real funny, kid." he meowed. Bbunlegs 20:28, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Flintpelt rolled his eyes at Gustywind. "I think we'd better head out now." He meowed, glancing at the nearly empty fresh-kill pile. "The Clan needs to be fed." He meowed, looking at his sister. Dreamflight looked at Crowfoot, then turned her head away shyly. "Yeah, we, uh, better go..." She looked at Flintpelt and followed him out of camp, accidently brushing her tail along Crowfoot's jaw. She looked back at him, smiling weakly. "Uh, sorry... I didn't mean to, um..."
- REDIRECT User:Nervousbreakdance/Sig 20:36, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
"N-no, it's fine. Go along." Crowfoot meowed. He still felt a pain in his tail, feeling that Gustywind's pull was quite strong. The black tom noticed that Gustywind was gone, guessing he probably dashed out of camp and into the clearing. Bbunlegs 20:40, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Flintpelt walked into the clearing ans sniffed around, careful of his leg. He opened his mouth and scented a snowshoe hair. Crouching in the snow, he made sure he was downwind of it. Slowly, he slithered forward. His hind paw fell into the snow under his weight, alerting the rabbit. It looked up and started hopping away. Hissing, he took off after it. The rabbit fell into the snow drifts a few fox lengths ahead of Flintpelt. Sliding on the sheet of ice that covered the snow, the dark gray tom's emerald green eyes widened as he plummeted head-first into a snow covered rock when his paw slid under an exposed root. The tom's eyes fluttered shut as he slipped into consciousness. -- Dreamflight had heard a loud thud! as she was stalking a mouse. She quickly leaped and delivered the killing blow to the rodent, then picked it up by the tail and followed the sound. She caught Flintpelt's scent on the ice-covered snow and looked around. She saw claw marks in the ice, as if some cat had slipped and lost their balance. She walked along the track and came to an indent in the snow. She looked into it and saw a bundle of dark gray fur. She dropped the mouse next to her and sniffed the fur. "StarClan's kits! Flintpelt, are you ok?" She meowed frantically. Flintpelt didn't move. Dreamflight's eyes widened as she looked around. "GUSTYWIND! CROWFOOT! FLINTPELT'S HURT!" She screeched, trying to haul her brother's bulky body from the indent. "HELP!"

"Give me a moment, I'm comin'!" Crowfoot meowed, and rushed off to Dreamflight, with a quail in his jaws. When the black tom arrived, he saw a knocked out Flintpelt. "Oh...I think he's dead." he meowed grimly. ---Gustywind came over with a rabbit in his jaws. "How'd he die?" he growled at Crowfoot. "You should've watched 'im or else he wouldn't have hit that rock over there!" Gustywind hissed, digging his claws into the ground. "You idiot!" Bbunlegs 22:19, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
"No... No, he can't be dead! Flintpelt... P-Please, wake up!" Dreamflight wailed. She turned to Crowfoot. "He can't be dead! He's not dead!" She pushed her nose into Crowfoot's fur as she stroked her brother's fur with her tail. She felt the smallest movement of fur under her brother's fur. She spun around and shoved her nose into the tom's fur. "H-He's breathing!" She cried, lifting him onto her shoulders. "Come on... Crowfoot... W-Would you, uh, jelp m-me?" She looked at the black tom with large, frightened two colored eyes. "I love him. He's my best friend, he's my brother. He's the first tom I ever loved. He's my family. I-I just want him to make it." She mewed. She blinked at Crowfoot. "Crowfoot, I uh... There's one more tom I want in my family." She slowly padded to the camp with Crowfoot helping her support her brother's weight. "That tom... Crowfoot, that tom is you."

"Holy smokes? Is this a joke?" Crowfoot meowed. The black tom waited a few heartbeats before adding, "Well, this escalated quickly. Flintpelt is nearly dead, Gustywind is as cynical as usual, and you want me into your family. Yeesh, this is too much to take!" He twitched his black tail before finally finishing. "You sure you want me?" Bbunlegs 22:49, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
"You... You make me feel like... You make me feel like Flintpelt will make it. When we get back to camp with Flintpelt... Will... Will you sit by him with me? Will you stand by me, through everything? Crowfoot, I love you. I have a feeling that.. That if Flinty does... if he does... die.. He'll understand why I chose right now to ask you. If he doesn't die... Maybe he'll be glad I asked you." Dreamflight shook her head. "Crowfoot, I've loved you since I was a kit. Will... Will you be my mate?" She asked,as they padded through the brambles and into the camp, her pace quickening.

Torchpaw padded over to Ravenpaw, tail high, smiling. "You called? What patrol are we going on?" he asked, giving her a playful swat on the ear.---- "Hey, Gustywind!" called Cedarflame, looking for him.She has just found out something important...---- Solarpaw smiled.---- Glasspool rested her head on Fadingshadow's shoulder, sighing.Silverstar 03:21, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Wildheart was so heart broken over the death of Risingstar, that she practically did nothing for a while. She never even got to say goodbye, or that she was sorry, to the tom exept in her dream. She couldn't believe it, as she layed on her nest, she just shut her eyes tight and wished she could see him again --- Dawnkit looked up at Flintpelt, gasping "Flintpelt!" she mewed, running towards the tom. Since she was 7 moons around, she was pretty big. She tumbled to him "No...No!" she mewed desperatly. --- Frostkit, unknowing, played with some moss by his mother --- Winterblaze walked to Icefeather and gentally played with Frostkit.

"Aw shucks! Of course, Dreamflight!" Crowfoot meowed. He sat down near the gray tom's limp body. "Why wouldn't I be your mate. Although you're a little young for me, that's perfectly okay, because we had Shadowclaw mate with a she-cat half his age." he added, and let out a small chuckle at the end. The black tom twitched his black tail, and his eyes glanced at the silver tabby. Bbunlegs 14:29, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Flintpelt's chest rose and fell unevenly, his heart racing. Still unconscious, the tom's head bleeding slowly. Countrypaw's eyes widened in horror when she walked out of her den. She ran back and grabbed herbs and cobwebs. She dashed out of the den as fast as she could. Dreamflight looked up and saw her sister. "Countrypaw... H-He's going t-to live... R-right?" she asked slowly. Countrypaw sniffed him, then noticed how ragged his breathing was. She felt how fast his heart was beating, then looked to the sky in defeat. "No... He's not. He's... Dreamflight, he's..." She looked at her brother, her green eyes full of grief. "Not even Beautifulface could save him now." She whispered. Shimmershadow walked into the camp, back from the dirtplace, with Shadowclaw at her side. "Countrypaw, what's going on?" She asked, eyes worried and round. Shadowclaw looked over his kit's head and saw Flintpelt. "Oh StarClan, Shimmershadow... It's Flintpelt..." He murmured, pushing through Countrypaw and Dreamflight. "Shimmershadow... Come here." Shimmershadow's eyes welled with tears as she stepped toward her mate and her son. "Flintpelt... Wake up." She looked at Dreamflight for help. Dreamflight's eyes were full of pain and loss, and already, her face was soaked with tears. "Countrypaw, he's going to live... Right?" Shadowclaw demanded. Countrypaw shook her head. "No," she whispered, tears falling to the ground. Daringheart walked out of the warrior's den, blinking sleep from his brown eyes. "He saw Flintpelt and his family around him and stopped dead in his tracks. "Flint? Hey, bro?" the tabby tom meowed. "Flint, get up, you lazy lump. You can't just sleep in the middle of the camp, mouse-brain." He nudged his brother with his nose. He looked up, sudden realisation hitting him. ""No... He can't be." He mewed in horror. Shimmershadow looked at her son with tears in her eyes and nodded. "He... Dare, he's dead." Countrypaw mewed, her voice cracking with grief. Shimmershadow got up and padded closer to Flintpelt. Countrypaw moved clower, as did the rest of the family. Countrypaw began to softly sing. "Just close your eyes, the sun is going down. You'll be alright, no one can hurt you now. Come morning light,you and I'll be safe and sound..." Her voice cracked as she watched her brother's flank become still, and his tail twitch one last time. "Just close your eyes..." Dreamflight whispered softly, voice cracking. "You'll be alright..." Shimmershadow managed to choke out in between sobs. "Come morning light..." Countrypaw lifted her head to look at the sky. "You and I'll be safe and..." She murmured, voice gone as she broke down into tears. "Sound..." Shadowclaw finished, shoving his nose into Flintpelt's cooling fur. Daringheart's brown eyes shimmered with undescribable pain. "Flint..." He started, trailing off as he laid down, his body shaking with silent sobs. Shadowclaw licked his son's face. "Flintpelt, I knew this day was coming..." He whispered, pushing his nose into Shimmershadow's fur, then drawing back as she pressed her face into his fur. "Shadowclaw... He's dead..." She choked out, her green eyes looking at Flintpelt. "He's in StarClan..." She whispered, tears still falling to the ground.

"Well, that escalated quickly." Crowfoot meowed. "So much going on at once! Golly! And I thought SpringClan was busier than this!" The black tom twitched an ear and added, "But poor ol' Flinty, he barely lasted a moon as a warrior!" Bbunlegs 20:19, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Torchpaw smiled, eyes gentle. He rested his tail on Ravenpaw's shoulders. "Of course," he mewed.---- Irisfrost gave Wildheart a mouse. "Come on, Wildheart, you need to eat," she murmured.Silverstar 22:20, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw looked at Crowfoot. "Hey! White-paws! Grow some respect." she hissed. As she was shushed by her mentor, she growled and walked out of camp. She went to hunt. "All they ever do, I fear, is spoon spoon spoon," 22:56, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Dawnpaw looked horridly at Flintpelt "No... NO!" she threw herself at Flintpelt's cold body, tears rolling down her cheeks. She stared around helplessly, her blue eyes wide with horror (Shes like, 8 moons old k) --- Wildheart looked at Flintpelt with sad multi colored eyes "Poor Flintpelt.." she trailed off.

Crescentpaw clawed the ground. "Not much." she sighed. "Flintpelt died..." she meowed, her voice edged with sorrow. She noticed a butterfly and wandered after it, toward a riverbank. The black tabby apprentice flopped herself down. She yawned, but noticed a black-and-white shape. "Badgerpaw?" she called. Badgerpaw's head ducked underneath a bush, that happened to be filled with spiders and webs. "Agh!" Badgerpaw yelled, backing out of the bush. Spiders crawled over him, and Crescentpaw could see his fur was glossy with cobwebs. Crescentpaw purred in amusement. "Good one, nature. Mama's so proud." she purred, her tail waving in good-humour. (hi-five to those who got the reference) Badgerpaw snarled. "It's not funny." he growled. "And you need to come back to camp, Guppyfin's not happy that you just wandered off like that." he said. Crescentpaw rolled her eyes. "For goodness' sake, I'm allowed out of camp. I'm an apprentice now!" she protested. Badgerpaw flicked his tail. "Just come back, mouse-brain." he hissed, impatient. Crescentpaw growled. "And I suppose your mentor is over the moon with you." she growled. Badgerpaw stuck his nose in the air. "Salmonstream is very proud of me. I'm proud of myself. I could beat anyone, no problem!" he mewed ambitiously, a tinge of hunger in his voice. Crescentpaw noticed the hunger and her fur bristled. Arrogant fur-ball. she hissed, heading back into camp, tail low. "All they ever do, I fear, is spoon spoon spoon," 11:08, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
Solarpaw blinked at Crescentpaw. "Uh-oh, what now?" he asked, resting his tail on her shoulders.---- Glasspool put her ears back, placing her head gently under Fadingshadow's chin. (I already love them together. <3)Silverstar 21:04, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
Crescentpaw ducked from her mother's licks. "Mum, get off me, I was only out a while." she growled. Fernshade sighed. "I know, I know, but you're still so young!" she exclaimed. Crescentpaw had to duck again. She sighed. "I'm an apprentice." "All they ever do, I fear, is spoon spoon spoon," 15:00, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

I love you so much, and I know my brother will hate me for life but...You matter way more than he does to me. You're so gorgeous, Opalgaze, even if your deaf in one ear, and are missing a bone in your leg... That doesn't matter to me, and it never will...I promise to love you forever and ever, no matter what...Our parents loved each other so deeply before, but I love you more than they loved eachother......Opalgaze, will you be my mate?" He asked hopfully, smiling. "StarClan, yes!" purred Opalgaze.Silverstar 18:16, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
Shimmershadow looked around the camp, eyes dull with grief. "Why does no one care about Flintpelt anymore?" she whispered, pushing her nose into her mate's fur. Shadowclaw sighed, shoulders hunced, tail laying heavily in the dust. "I... I don't know." he whispered, licking his mate's ungroomed fur. "I wish he was still here." he mewed softly. --- Dreamflight pushed her nose into Crowfoot's fur. "C-Crowfoot? I-If we e-ever have kits... Can we name one Flintkit? After my brother?" she whispered, two colored eyes milky with grief and exhaustion. --- Vacantkit blinked her eyes and pushed her nose into her mother's fur. She stood up and looked at Seedkit.

Fernshade saw that Shimmershadow and Shadowclaw were upset. Her eyes softened. I would go and talk to them... she thought. But we've had such a terrible history.. I don't want to upset them any more. Now that she'd made sad eye contact, she found it hard to walk way. But, swallowing her grief, she turned and walked towards Badgerpaw. He greeted her with a nod. "Hi mum." he mewed, his speech muffled as he had a mouthful of shrew, Fernshade laughed. "Honey, you know you're not supposed to eat food until your mentor tells you... And I don't see Salmonstream anywhere." she mewed, her head turning around camp, until she had searched the whol camp. She twisted her head back, but Badgerpaw continued eating. "Well, don't blame me when you get told off!" she laughed. Badgerpaw scoffed. "I'll blame Crescentpaw." he muttered half-heartedly, grabbing another shrew. "You will not!" Crescentpaw hissed, wandering over. Fernshade looked in shock at her son, whose mouth was covered in shrew bits. "Another shrew? I don't know where you put it all, Badgerpaw!" she laughed. Crescentpaw took one look at Badgerpaw and snorted at his messiness. "All over his face by the looks of it." she laughed. Badgerpaw's fur bristled, and he licked his lips. "I'm just hungry!" he protested. "I'd rather be hatedfor who I am than be loved for who I changed to be" 09:34, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Beautifulface rushed over, mouth full of herbs. She shoved a stick near Irisfrost's paws. "Bite on this, and remember your first kitting. This one will be easier now." --- Talonclaw licked his mate's ears. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 23:57, April 2, 2013 (UTC)
"Sure, go ahead and name one Flintkit, even if I don't know what a "flint" is." Crowfoot meowed to his mate, shuffling a bit to give Dreamflight some room to sit in. Bbunlegs 00:01, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

Days passed, and Badgerpaw began eating less and less, until eventually, he had completely stopped eating. His hunger pangs were completely overwhelming, but still, he insisted upon not eating. With the hunger exhausting him, the black-and-white apprentice tried to sleep the day off as often as he could. And, although he still had training, and was ordered to eat by his mentor every so often, the young tom just refused every offer. Seeing him upset, Crescentpaw continued to try and enhearten him, trying to make him feel less self-conscious about his weight. She had even offered to put on some weight, but Badgerpaw just gave her a straight no, and insisted on starving himself. Crescentpaw had argued over his decision for some time, but Badgerpaw eventually just walked away. "I'd rather be hated for who I am than be loved for who I changed to be" 11:19, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
Breezepaw stared at Badgerpaw. "Please, eat." she begged. "You'll starve." she wasn't concerned about his weight - she was concered about his health. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 13:01, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
Badgerpaw shook his head. "No. I don't wanna eat ever again. I'll be fine." he mewed defiantly. Crescentpaw looked at her sister and then at her brother. Picking up a small vole, she tried to tempt Badgerpaw to eat it, but he just ran away from the offer. Crescentpaw was becoming increasingly worried. "We should tell Fernshade or Lightningcrash." she told Breezepaw. "Come on." Her gaze was clouded with worry. "I don't know about you but I'm feeling 22" 18:14, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
Breezepaw went into the warrior's den to fetch Lightningcrash. She padded out with him, tail in the air. "What's going on with Badgerpaw?" he asked his daughters. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 19:15, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
"I think he's trying to starve himself!" Crescentpaw blurted out without a thought. She immediately closed her mouth. Fernshade padded up beside her mate and looked at her daughter, bewildered. "Hmm?" she enquired. Crescentpaw looked at her mother in worry. Fernshade's eyes narrowed. "Starve himself?" She blinked in utter confusion. "Why would he wanna do that?" She tipped her head, her tail flicking across the ground. Crescentpaw looked at Breezepaw and sighed. "I don't know." she finally said after her sister gave no answer. Fernshade exchanged a worried glance with Lightningcrash, and sighed heavily. "I don't know about you but I'm feeling 22" 09:08, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
"I think," Breezepaw started. "He's concerned about his weight. Lightningcrash sighed. "Well, he needs to eat something. He'll starve." I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 12:56, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
Solarpaw hunted near the AutumnClan border.---- Irisfrost had three kits. "Blisskit, Racoonkit, and Sootkit," she murmured purring happily. She nuzzled her mate.---- Opalgaze nuzzled Gemcave.

Badgerpaw's heart-rate was insane. He could feel it throbbing against his ribcage. He could see the outdent of his heart-throb on his chest. He could barely breathe at all. Hunger ate away at him and every single step he took felt like he was being battered. He couldn't take it at all. His paws clenched and his legs buckled beneath him. Motionless on the ground, no energy moved in him. Crescentpaw glanced over and saw him. "Badgerpaw!" she screeched, rushing over. She saw his eyes as they dimmed. "Please, please eat..." she sobbed, her tears being the only movement on Badgerpaw's body. She grabbed a vole and tore it into pieces. She pawed them towards him. "Please. You're not fat at all." she sobbed. Badgerpaw's eyes filled with pain. "I am. I am. I know I am." he breathed. Crescentpaw let out a frustrated hiss. "You're not fat!" she told him, honesty in her eyes. "Look at yourself. You're the skinniest cat in the Clan!" she meowed. Badgerpaw managed to cock his head. His eyes widened in realisation. "You're right..." he croaked. A bought of coughing wracked his speech. His heart started beating in his chest again. "Crescentpaw.. I'm dying." he meowed, fear in his tone. Crescentpaw was about to utter you're not! But she knew he was. Tears filled her eyes and she rested her head on his shoulders. "You'll be safe in StarClan." she whispered. Badgerpaw's eyes widened. "Crescentpaw... I don't want to die..." he breathed shakily, his entire body trembling. Crescentpaw's cheeks felt hot and burning as more flame-like tears rushed down her face. Fernshade had been watching the entire time. She rushed forward to Badgerpaw. She knew there was nothing she could do. "There's nothing to be afraid of, my love." she breathed. "They'll take good care of you." she meowed. Badgerpaw's voice trembled. "But mum, I don't want to ever be forgotten. I don't want to leave you." he cried. Fernshade pressed her nose into his pelt. "You'll never be forgotten. And I'll never leave you." she whispered, her own voice beginning to quaver with sadness. Badgerpaw looked at her with a fading gaze. "I'm... scared." His gaze faded and he lay back, motionless. Fernshade lifted her head, her throat tight. Crescentpaw stood behind her, entirely scarred. She remembered the memories she had shared with her brother, and it began to tear her up. She turned and fled into the forest, stiff with grief. "Wey hey it's time to play" 20:36, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
Lightningcrash, numb with pain, nosed his son in one last hope that he was alive. He stiffled a sob, and layed his muzzle on Badgerpaw's side, tears streaming down his face. --- Breezepaw ran over. "Badgerpaw! Badgerpaw! This isn't funny!" she yelled. She then realized how ominously still he looked. "Badgerpaw..." Breezepaw noticed Crescentpaw run off into the forest and looked at her grieving parents. "Oh, no..." she crouched beside him, feeling her throat tighten as she struggled not to cry. I can't wait to eat this bagel! Yes you can. ... yeah... I guess you're right... 20:43, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
Fernshade shut Badgerpaw's terrified eyes for the final time and winced as she felt the coldness of his pelt. She dug her nose into his pelt. "I didn't want to lose you now." she sobbed. "Wey hey it's time to play" 20:48, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
