Stone grunted as she attempted to stand up one more time. She didn't put much weight on her injured leg, but she didn't fall. She decided to limp out of the medicine den and explore the camp. ♎ giaria time on my side 02:21 Sun Mar 1
Finn blushed at his friends words. Oh StarClan! She's trying to match make again! He thought. "Well Puddlepaw when will you be made warrior?" The black-and-ginger tom asked.— Mel Pray For Peace 17:38, March 2, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow bounded through the snow, his long legs making it easier for him. Thankfully, the snow was starting to melt, so it'd be easier for him to take Whitepaw out of camp. He heard Finn, Puddlepaw, and Hazelfern in the distance, and the tabby tom flattened his ears. Geez, flirting with an apprentice? Is he that desperate? He snickered to himself, gazing up at the clear blue sky as he thought of Loyal. Hopefully, the bitter tom wouldn't show his face again, or Webshadow and his mother would have to deal with him.Silverstar 21:23, March 2, 2015 (UTC)
Puddlepaw smiled. "I should be made a warrior some time soon" she said. Finn's a cool cat. Maybe we can be friends? she thought, although she was impressed by his charm.Meerkatpaw (talk) 03:00, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
Stone left to the medicine den. She was tired already, and knew she should rest. Curling up in her nest, she thought about what it might be like to live in a Clan like this. She would have to hunt and fight with other cats, and it wouldnt be as lonely. She thought about it, and fell asleep. ♎ giaria time on my side 13:12 Tue Mar 3
Finn walked to the fresh kill pile and grabbed a vole to share with Puddlepaw. She's really nice but would she accept me? He thought. "Well," He started glancing up to see Hazelfern comforting Eaglewing. What's wrong with Eaglewing? He asked himself.— Mel Pray For Peace 17:23, March 4, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow stalked a snowhare, his belly fur gently brushing against the snow. He leaped, his claws raking the white mammal's hind legs, but if escaped his claws and fled. The young tom sat back and let out a disappointed sigh, flattening his ears and continuing with his hunt. He didn't end up scenting a thing, and returned to camp with disappointment nipping at his belly.Silverstar 21:46, March 4, 2015 (UTC)
Risepaw sat beside Talonpaw, the two toms eyeing the freshkill pile. Both had their sights set on a plump bird, their whiskers quivering as they starved at the prey. Risepaw quickly rose to his paws, racing towards the bird at his top speed, only to be pinned by Talonpaw. "You'll have to fight me for it!" "You're on, fuzzy!" Risepaw roared, rolling over and batting Talonpaw away, rising to his paws, only to be tripped by the dark ginger-brown tom.Silverstar 23:02, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
Crowfoot sighed as he sat around in WinterClan camp. A moon ago Stormblaze and Gustywind were killed in an avalanche, and were said to have pushed their apprentices out of the way [Gustywind was said to have his last words be 'I fell...for the ground.'] and were sent off to StarClan as a result. Now Crowfoot was a bit more cautious because he didn't want to end up dying all of a sudden. Especially since he now had an apprentice to train and care for, too. A lot of responsibilities, really. Bbunlegs 03:39, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
Cedarflame sat outside of the nursery, her ears pinned against her skull, a bitter look on her face. That lousy Gustywind just had to die and leave her with his kits! Sure, she was getting a bunch of attention for his death, but now she'd have to raise a litter all by herself. Cedarflame scoffed angrily, rasping her tongue over her fuzzy belly-fur, her tail tip twitching in the process.Silverstar 04:05, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
Darkpaw sat by himself in camp, something that he did quite a bit. He was glum. That was the word to describe him. His mentor had died, and since his parent's barely had time for such a large family, he could say he felt really alone. The poor little baby, all he wanted was to have a cat that he could look up to, and aspire to be like. But now, the young black and white tom waited to be appointed a new mentor. Maybe another senior warrior would fill the hole? Or, maybe not. —— #chicks =trouble Sun Mar 8 06:13
Guppystar was preparing for the gathering, knowing she had several ceremonies to preform. The tabby leader leapt up onto the highrock, and called for her clanmates to assemble. "Cats of WinterClan! Today we acknowledge the accomplishments of four cats, all of whom I am grateful to know and serve besides. To begin with, I would like Wildheart, Shadowclaw, and Mintflower to step forward," she called, waiting for the elderly cats to come up to the rock. "You all have served WinterClan well, and we are all grateful for your duty to us. It is with both sorrow that you cannot continue to work besides me, and pride that you will continue to help WinterClan grow with knowledge, that I ask StarClan to honor you three as elders. You are relived of your warrior duties, and WinterClan welcomes you to your new ranks." Guppystar waited as the assembled cats chanted the names of the new elders, and she gave the three a dismissing smile and nod as they walked back into the gathered cats.
"Next, I need Wrenpaw, my apprentice, to come forward. You were a gifted apprentice, and after returning home, you have proven yourself to be as loyal and strong as ever. You will now be known as Wrenwhisker, for your outgoing nature and helpfulness to the clan. We welcome you as a full warrior of WinterClan," the leader announced, jumping off of the highrock and walking over to the smaller rock below her's, where Wrenwhisker was waiting. She touched her nose to her forehead, and after Wrenwhisker licked her shoulder, Guppystar returned to her position up above.
"Finally, with the passing of Gustywind, we were left with an apprentice with no mentor. I am no longer with an apprentice now, so I will take on Darkpaw's training," she called out, before giving the dismissing wave of her tail to the clan and walking off the rock, to go see where Darkpaw was. —Leggy 16:09, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
Acornpaw still hadn't quite adjusted to the fact that, as a new apprentice, his free kithood days had finally drawn to a close. He'd been a lazy kit on average, and so he was sure this whole apprentice malarkey would tire him out far too quickly. Staying curled up in his nest and cleaning his pelt, he decided to wait as long as possible until his mentor dragged him from where he was settled.
Shadowclaw purred as he and his mate, and his former apprentice, were made elders. He'd served the Clan for quite a long time. He agreed with Guppystar. He did deserve a long rest. — nervousbreakdance 23:58, 03/8/2015
Stone woke to the commotion of the Clan gathering. She stumbled out of the medicine cat's den in time to see the clan still together. She sat down in the back and started grooming herself, fully aware that the ceremonies were over. Stone still had a bit of a limp, but she didn't mind. She had also grown accustomed to the unwelcome stares she received from the Clan-born cats. Stone shrugged them off, sitting, as an outsider, proudly in the center of the camp.♎ giaria time on my side 02:49 Mon Mar 9
Irisfrost approached her retiring friends, Tigerclaw at her side as usual. The tom was rather close to her now, and often reminded her of Talonclaw, as she wasn't aware of her mate taking over the warrior's body. She smiled at Shadowclaw, Mintflower, and Wildheart, resting her tail on the calico molly's shoulders. "I'll tell you guys what, it was certainly fun living this life with you guys. We've had quite some interesting pasts."---- Risepaw approached Darkpaw with a small smile, giving his brother a friendly nod. He'd given up his fight with Talonpaw, as a warrior had taken the snowhare while they were "battling". The black smoke tabby sat beside his littermate with a smile, touching his tailtip to his flank. "Hey brother, congrats on the rad mentor!" He then paused, cocking his head slightly. "Why the long face dude?"Silverstar 02:51, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
Guppystar headed over after seeing Stone in the center of camp, and boldly went up to the loner. Over the past few weeks, she had noted that the loner was adapting well to clan life, and seeing that she wasn't leaving or seeming disloyal in any way, Guppystar was ready to accept her as a full member. "Stone, will you come join me in my den for a moment?" she asked, flicking her tail-tip in the direction of the cave atop the high rock. —Leggy 23:59, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
Opalgaze approached Gemcave with long strides, brushing her muzzle against his. "Hey sweetie, how'd it go?" She asked in a soft tone, her eyes warm and welcoming. Gemcave gently touched his nose to her head before smiling down at her. "Pretty well." Besides Hazelfern's whole 'how to hook up with a tom' to poor Cypressclaw...---- Webshadow returned from the Gathering, rather energetic despite his exhaustion.Silverstar 22:15, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Wildheart purred, "You said it! All of this time, and I finally get a break, I couldn't work another day. Or really be bothered, I've always hated work," she mewed, exaggerating. She then blinked, "When are you planning on retiring Irisfrost? Your seemingly getting old and decrepit," she mewed, making the statement as blunt as possible, but mostly due to her being friends with irisfrost in the first place.
Wildheart herself was decrepit with age; her once powerful back joints were now worn and painful, and her more muscular frame was now replaced with loose fur and fat. Her fur had once a glossy finish to it, was now scarred and mangled up in places, with the gray tints coming in on the fur above her eyes and her muzzle, but just barely at this point. It was expect to expand and grow, though, it was only a matter of time. All of those kittens really did something to ol' me, she would always think to herself, blaming her kin on it over her lack of work she used to skip out on and just 'say' she did it. No younger warrior challenged her though, because of her senior warrior title and popularity among the clans from before. She knew she was a freeloader that rode on her quick wits all her life, never wanting to lift a claw to do something he disliked, and easily gave up her warriorship when she looked convincing enough to be older, and in reality she was old and most cats would have retired at her age. The difference between though is that she did not loose her agility until later on compared to others, so it took awhile, and anyway she totally liked doing things.
Why she had so many kittens was beyond her, too much freetime with her former mate? Probably, from all her skipped patrols it was bound to happen. Did she love her kittens? To a point, yes, but she barely knew a good number of them so that love was very thin, what remained was the love any mother has for their kittens just because. She was proud of seeing Fallingheart and Opalgaze grow up and such, and her first granddaughter was birthed from Opalgaze. Her second litter was one of her more memorable ones with the first, being that each lived to adulthood and they were all interesting in their owns ways, and her first adopted kit turned out to be a success she supposed, being he ended up as her son-in-law anyway. As the third litter came and went fast from the disease the clan had, her concern for her kits grew less. Her fourth and final litter ended up being the litter she was concerned about the most, and even though she did love them, she barely saw them and remembered them anyway. To be honest, she was not the nurturing type, and did not particularly like young cats, which is why she requested she did not want an apprentice throughout her warriorship. She was far too carefree to be a mother, but was more or less butchered into the position through the first litter and then the second, but deep within she still wished she'd had more fun and less birthing. (In retrospect, all but the first litter were all unplanned and mostly the result of messing around too much.)
Now she'd get time off with Mintflower and Shadowclaw, two of her good buddies. At least she wouldn't be alone, dang that'd be boring. t's already going to be a drag as it is, but socialising was a step in the right direction. Maybe she could drag them out on walks outside that'd turn into oldie hunting trips that old cats like them probably should not be doing but they do it anyway because yolo. If Irisfrost joined them, she could declare them the 'oldie hunting squad', where they do everything a warrior does only on their own terms, and do basically whatever since that's what elders do anyway. Even if Irisfrost plans on not retiring, she'd still bring it up to the two weirdos that retired with her, I bet Mintflower would be all for it. 22:37 Tue Mar 10
Jadepool sat up as she saw the cats returning from the Gathering. She bounded forward when she saw Webshadow, eager to hear how the other clans were doing. "Welcome back." Jadepool said, stifling a yawn. "How was it?"23:19, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow let out a small yawn, casually glancing at Jadepool as she approached. "The Gathering? Eh, it was ok, nothing special or violent this time..." He didn't mention Jaystorm's little "interaction" with the SummerClan apprentice.Silverstar 23:23, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
"That's good." Jadepool said with a glance at the full moon. Thankfully it seemed nothing notable significant had happened (which could be either a blessing or a curse). "So the other clans are doing alright then?"23:28, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow nodded. "I think so..." He paused, then lowering his voice as he began to speak of his brother. "My brother's a loner now though, officially has a mate and everything."Silverstar 23:30, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Jadepool's eyes widened. She hadn't though of Loyalheart ever since the day he tried to take advantage of her. She felt a shiver of ghost pain in shoulder as she remembered the incident. "Hmm.." Jadepool quickly cleared her mind. "Where is he now? Or haven't you seen him since?"23:37, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow flattened his ears. "Thankfully no, I haven't seen him. If we're lucky, he may have become more...Sane." The tom rolled his eyes, his tail tip brushing against the ground. "I don't know his location, I just heard it from a loner near out borders, who I drove off."Silverstar 23:40, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Wildheart looked at irisfrost in waiting response, still waiting on her answer to why she was still serving as a warrior.
Dipperpaw sighed, looking at the looming sky above. He enjoyed his apprenticeship, but he remembered just last moon that his other brother, Bramblepaw, had drowned along with Hiddenshadow, while hunting alone. He was a very emotional cat, and was called 'too nice' by many, which is why Bramblepaw's death was upsetting even now a good moon later. 00:18 Wed Mar 11
Irisfrost twitched her whiskers in amusement, giving Wildheart a playful swipe to the muzzle. "Well, this elderly she-cat plans on serving her Clan probably until her son becomes a Warrior." She responded with a smirk. Deep down, she wanted to retire and stick with her squad, even though Risingspirit hadn't retired. Wildheart, Mintflower, and Shadowclaw were her friends as well, and she spent more time with them nowadays. It was a shame their squad would be split up, but hopefully only for a little while.
"We can still go hunting, I believe. We're just more...fragile now." Irisfrost added, Tigerclaw letting his pelt brush against her's. How much the tom reminded her of Talonclaw, it was just unbelievable. She'd talk with him later, perhaps he knew something she didn't.Silverstar 01:48, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
"Hmm..." Jadepool nodded, her expression turning dark. "Hopefully... he is." At least he's far away from here...10:39, March 11, 2015 (UTC)
Gullpaw pranced into camp, returning from the gathering. She was one of three apprentices who got to go, but the other two weren't as willing to brag about their experience as she was. Barreling into the apprentice den, she was satisfied to see that all of her friends were sound asleep in their nests. "I'm baaaack," she shouted to them, hopefully waking them all up. The closest nest to her was Dipperpaw's, so she pounced lightly onto his back and collapsed on top of him, pinning him down with her bowling-ball type body. "Who wants to hear about the gathering?" —Leggy 01:55, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Dipperpaw squeaked loudly and let himself be squeezed to death by Gullpaw's extra amount of weight, "I-I you're crushing my orga-" he was cut off by Crowpaw almost immediatly, "I bet they crushed you like a little grape, I bet you were so intimidated that you hid like a little wimp in the middle of you're muma's warriors," he sneered, getting up and crawling ever so slowly towards Gullpaw and the now suffocating Dipperpaw, who was twitching now at a rapid rate and looking pale. Crowpaw, when close to Gullpaw, flashed his tail to the side, "I bet you went down like... this!" he yowled, launching himself at Gullpaw and tackling her with a hefty leap. Dipperpaw, in the background, started making wheezing noises at this point from the relief he was probably feeling, and Ivypaw continued to stay silent the entire time. 02:07 Thu Mar 12
"Shut up Crowpaw," Gullpaw sneered, lashing her rumpy tail at him. If her tail was longer, it would've looked irritated, but due to her lack of one, she really just wiggled her rear at him. She watched as Crowpaw sneaked closer, and squeaked as the tom pounced on her, adding more weight onto poor little Dipperpaw. Gullpaw slowly rolled Crowpaw off of her, and landed on top of him, next to where Dipperpaw was able to breathe again. "Nuh-uh! I met a SummerClan tom," she meowed triumphantly, flattening her ears as she held down the squirming Crowpaw. "I sat with SummerClan warriors and I met Elmstar!" Really, she had just seen Elmstar, and her mother introduced her, but that was close enough, right? —Leggy 02:15, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Crowpaw sneered, "Get me proof of this and then I'll believe you nerd, I don't think you met even one little furry nimskull," he mewed hotly, now letting limp. In doing that, Gullpaw eased a bit, letting Crowpaw take full oppurtunity of this and change positions, now holding her down with a triuphant look on his face, "You don't have as cool of a mentor as I do, I know way more than you ever will," he boasted, lashing his tail as to show his awesomeness. Dipperpaw was gasping with a teary look in his face, while Ivypaw still decided to stay out of this, being that Crowpaw or Gullpaw would tackle him and he would probably win that one. 02:32 Thu Mar 12
"Trust me," Jadepool said sternly, her tail tip twitching. "I won't."13:18, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Finn smiled and turned to Puddlepaw as his insides turned to liquid. I'm falling in love! He htought surprised. Hazelfern left mumbling omething about training Ivypaw, although she didn't plan on it right now. "Webshadow," The dark brown-and-white tabby greeted the warrior.— Mel Pray For Peace 16:53, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow nodded. "Good, see ya around Jadepool. If you need someone to go with you, I'm here, I'll happily teach my brother a lesson anytime." He then turned his gaze to Hazelfern, twitching his ear. "Hi,"Silverstar 21:50, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
The golden tabby tom blinked calmly. "Um, fine I guess, she seems to be easily catching on." Webshadow shifted slightly, an urge to learn more about his brother overcoming him.Silverstar 21:54, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
"That's good." THe dark mooly said softly. She looked into his green eyes. Looking up she saw Ivypaw. "Maybe you and White paw could come train with Ivypaw and I." She said hopefully.— Mel Pray For Peace 21:56, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow shook his head. "It's late right now, she needs her sleep. I'll probably head out with her in the morning, just gonna check the borders before I sleep." He rumbled as he padded out of camp, his fur fluffing to keep him warm as he padded through the melting snow.Silverstar 21:58, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
"Nuh-uh!" Gullpaw squeaked, wriggling her hind legs up to her belly and kicking into Crowpaw's belly, so that she pushed him off. "I'll show you guys Harepaw sometime I promise! I really did meet a SummerClan cat, and Jaystorm beat him up!" she meowed triumphantly. (If she were able to move her arms that way, she'd be putting her hands on her hips right now.) She glanced over at Dipperpaw, watching as he slowly recovered from her assault, and then looked to Ivypaw, who was staying to himself. She pounced next to Ivypaw, stretching out next to him and grappling the apprentice with her forearms. "Tell Crowpaw to believe me already," she meowed, flattening her ears playfully. —Leggy 22:01, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow eventually made it to the border, sitting along it as the wind fluffed out his fur. He gazed around before making his way back to camp, deciding to search for any signs of Loyal in the morning.---- Gemcave made his way into the Warrior's den, letting out a massive yawn. He was happy to go to the Gathering, and due to his strong build and taller height, the journey hadn't been difficult for him.Silverstar 22:02, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Finn sighed and said goodnight to Puddlepaw and glanced over at Ivypaw. HE should probably get some sleep as Hazelfern said something about training at dawn. He thought.— Mel Pray For Peace 22:04, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Crowpaw snickered, "Now why would Jaystorm ever do that, he's got a stick too long gone up his hinee to ever do something so awesome. Now I know you're obviously making this load of mousedung up," he sneered, flashing his tail. Ivypaw narrowed his eyes at Gullpaw's weird attempts at playing, "You both look like overgrown kittens," he remarked, "But, your statement does seem to lack some logic. I mean, for one thing, isn't your mother a stickler for staying within clan ranks, so you leaving might have been a stupid decision on your part, and I barely know Jaystorm, but why would he beat up an apprent She feice in the middle of a Gathering? His personality seems far from that to be honest," he mewed, ignoring Gullpaw's flailing front paws and flattening his ears in warning, sending the message: Don't you dare sit on me tubby. 22:16 Thu Mar 12
"I swear it's true!" Gullpaw whined, batting gently at Ivypaw's ears. "I sweeeaaaaarrrrrrrrrr!" The tortoiseshell sat up, looking for her next unfortunate target.
Meanwhile, Guppystar returned to her den, to speak with Stone. She entered the small room through the lichen curtain, and sat down across from the former loner. "Are you determined to stay here?" she asked firstly, wrapping her tabby tail around her paws. —Leggy 22:22, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
"Why wouldn't I?" Stone said, flicking her tail. "There's a near constant supply of food, dry dens, better than living life as a loner where nothing is a promise. Besides, there are cats here that are willing to care about me. There's no reason for me to go back to being a loner." ♎ giaria time on my side 22:41 Thu Mar 12
Crowpaw smirked, "Okay then. Let's make a deal. If you bring me over to SummerClan and show me this SummerClan apprentice, then I'll believe you. If you decide to wuss out and not come then I will officially name you Senior Huge Loser and will call you that until you die," he mewed, his nose scrunched up. She was going to back out of it, he knew it, so he'd get the freedom to call her that forever. Awesome. 00:49 Fri Mar 13
Puddlepaw smiled, then headed off to the warriors den. She felt surprisingly warm and fuzzy, then padded into her nest. I have no idea what this feeling is she thought, then curled up, feeling comfortable in the nest's embrace.Meerkatpaw (talk) 02:52, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
Guppystar nodded. She had grown to appreciate the loner a little more than some of the other cats in the Clan, and she had definitely noticed the she-cat's dedication to clan life. "That's a very good answer," she meowed after a moment, examining the loner. She was strong, certainly, and could prove to be very beneficial to clan life. Guppystar hesitated for a few seconds, before proposing her next question: "Would you be interested in the status of a warrior, then?"
Gullpaw glared at Crowpaw, not happy with her choices. Her mother hated outsiders from the clan, and any cats other than the big ones going near the borders. But she couldn't be stuck with that title the rest of her life. It was against all of her morals to back down, but, she wanted to prove herself. "F-fine," she meowed, sitting up and puffing out her chest a little. "I'll show you! Let's go tomorrow night, when Cricketstep has night watch. Shw won't notice." —Leggy 03:09, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
Stone blinked, and then turned to look at Guppystar. "It'd be my honor to serve as a warrior in..." She paused, trying to remember the name of the clan. "WinterClan." ♎ giaria time on my side 03:29 Fri Mar 13
Gullpaw looked at Ivypaw and rolled her eyes. "It'll be totally okay! We'll go at night and won't get caught. Plus I'm sure we can find Harepaw before dawn and be back in camp before anyone notices. It'll be foolproof! As long as Guppystar doesn't see me I'll be okay," she meowed triumphantly, now determined to prove herself to Ivypaw, too. "You'll see!"
Guppystar took note of the slight hesitation in the name of the clan, but shrugged it off. Stone wouldn't have to worry about that information until the time came for her to go to a gathering, which could take a while. "Then what would you think of a warrior name?" —Leggy 03:50, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
Jadepool headed back to her den and curled up in her nest, trying to keep her thoughts off of Loyal. So he's a loner now... Huh... She shook her and head and wrapped her tail over her nose and eventually drifted into a dreamless sleep. --- Jadepool eventually awoke and looked around the den to see who was already up and out for the morning patrols.14:07, March 13, 2015 (UTC)
Ivypaw thought this over for a bit; this was stupid and totally pointless to do, only for the gain of proving a point that will be long forgotten in the coarse of a week. Yet he knew that Gullpaw nor Crowpaw were ever going to give it up now, both of them were morons, so he'd have to at least buy some strategy into this idea. "Alright, fair enough, if you want to go through with this, if I may add, terrible idea, than so be it. But If I may add some of my two cents, and I will do it anyway, what if we do not return by daybreak? I have not seen outside the clan yet, but from what was said to me, WinterClan and SummerClan do not border. It could take awhile to get there, and then to find this cat, because I highly doubt he will magically appear at the border when we do, and then to come back! Someone will have to distract Guppystar if we do not return, since my mother is dead and Crowpaw's mother probably wouldn't give a mouse whisker where Crowpaw is," he mewed, studying the cats around him comprehensibly. Dipperpaw was still silent. just taking in what everyone was saying, while Crowpaw was looking at his paws in fake admiration, he obviously didn't hear a word Ivypaw had said nor cared to cover it up, very well. 00:54 Sat Mar 14
Guppystar nodded. Stonefrost. I like that. "Alright, I'll take that into consideration. You may go," she meowed, flicking her tail-tip towards the exit. As Stone left, she followed her out, to go check on camp one last time before she slept for the remainder of the day.
Gullpaw flattened her ears, not sure how to approach this new challenge. "I-I'll.....Dipperpaw can cover for us!" she meowed, jumping to her feet. We can all pretend to be exhausted from training and Dipperpaw can tell my mother that we're sleeping all day to recover. That way, he can keep her out of the den and we'll be safe!" She glanced at Dipperpaw, giving him an overly-enthusiastic look. "Can you do that, Dip?" —Leggy 01:29, March 14, 2015 (UTC)
Dipperpaw blinked. He didn't like that idea at all. He was intimidated by every cat higher than him in status, including warriors, and especially especially the leader of the clan! And what if she found out he was covering for them, he'd get in worse trouble and get that im so disappointed in you face. He hated that face! Especially from a clan leader! But he couldn't refuse for the sake of looking like a coward in front of Gullpaw, Crowpaw, and his brother, so he jerked his head in a way that signaled a reluctant 'yes'. Ivypaw nodded, "So it's settled, we should get some rest and eat beforehand. I doubt Magpiestar would be pleased to let us eat his clan's food i we go 'ask nicely for it'," he mewed, stretching. Crowpaw nodded, "Good, I was hoping you losers wouldn't disappoint," he yawned, laying back down into his nest. 01:35 Sat Mar 14
Wrenwhisker exhaled, ears perking up as she noticed her breath release into the chilly air. She had finally caught up with her littermates, thankfully. While the cold was often associated with bad things such as death, starvation, or illness, it was enjoyable to fill her lungs with the cool air after a cramped night in her newly made nest. --kath 02:02, March 15, 2015 (UTC)
Jadepool stretched out and yawned, ready for the day. She walked out of the warriors den and into the morning sunlight. She thought about what Webshadow had said to her the night before and thought about who she wanted to go out with on a little hunting patrol.23:02, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
"Cats of WinterClan, gather!" Guppystar called from the highrock, lashing her tail as her clanmates gathered. "We have a cat proven worthy of a warrior name, and WinterClan is ready to accept her. Stone, step forward," the tabby leader called, waiting for the loner to step forward. "From this point on you will be known as Stonefrost. StarClan honors your determination and hard work, and I welcome you as a full warrior of WinterClan." She jumped down from the ledge to greet Stonefrost with a lick on her forehead, before heading back up to her den to finally rest.
Gullpaw nodded excitedly, the thought of an adventure now interesting her. This'll be fun! However, the tortoiseshell was frightened when she heard her mom calling a meeting. Did she read my mind? Am I in trouble? She went outside for the ceremony, and then climbed back into the den once the cheering had died down, so she could finally sleep. —Leggy 00:19, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
Pinekit batted at her brother's ears playfully, attempting to shush his whining. God, Sparrowkit, she's trying to sleep. —10:48, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
Finn padded out of the warriors den yawning. Maybe he could ask Puddlepaw to be his mate. Seeing Jadepool he padded to her. "Going on a patrol?" He asked stretching. He glanced up to see Hazelfern talking with Ivypaw.— Mel Pray For Peace 02:26, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Eaglewing sighed and shouldered her way through the crowd. She looked over at Guppystar and the newly named Wrenwhisker. Nodding her head. She continued out of camp. She would never come back. Someone else would care for Darkkit, Graykit, and Spiderkit.— Mel Pray For Peace 02:39, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
"Yeah." Jadepool nodded. "I was actually looking for someone to come with me. Would you mind Finn?"10:01, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Pinekit's initial instinct was to react by a playful shove. And naturally, that's exactly what she did. Using her forepaws, she gave the older kitten a gentle shove. Not to knock him over, but to stir his balance in her confusion. She mustered a small squeak. —12:10, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Darkkit fell over losing his balance. "What was that for?" He said. The toms green eyes sparkled playfully. Spiderkit sniffed and sat beside Graykit watching her brother and the younger kit, Pinekit, play.— Mel Pray For Peace 12:53, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Sparrowkit awoke, not feeling his sisters warm presence next to him. He opened his eyes, watching his sister play with the slightly older kit. "Hey, can I join?" He mewed hopefully. Emily -♫Don't wanna be a victim of authority!♫ 21:37, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Jadepool exited the camp, followed by Finn. She tasted the air while they walked to find any prey. Eventually she heard a scuffle to the right of her. Mouse... Signaling with her tail to Finn, she dropped down into the hunter's crouch and began moving forward.09:57, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
Darkkit tackled Sparrowkit. "I'm gonna be leader someday! My sister Spiderkit wants to be a medicine-cat." He shuddered even at the thought of being gentle and helping others that weren't WinterClan.
Finn watched Jadepool. I think she was the one who almost got raped by loyal. He thought. Hazelfern motioned for Ivypaw ro follow her. "You'll blearning a move I learned from a friend of mine." She remembered when she met Wolfsong as a small loner. — Mel Pray For Peace 15:35, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow had planned to go hunting with his friend Jadepool, but he left before he could ask. Besides, he simply wanted to make sure his brother wasn't near WinterClan territory. With a small sigh, the golden tabby tom made his way out of camp.Silverstar 21:08, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
Heading out of the warriors den, Stonefrost yawned. She decided it would be good to hunt and stretch her legs. She headed out of camp alone, not asking any of the strangers in her new home. ♎ giaria time on my side 21:14 Fri Mar 20
Cottonfur noticed the other walking alone and bounded up to her, flickering his ears in greeting. "Hullo, Stonefrost! Lovely weather w're havin', mmmm?"
It was a great day out; the sun was bright and warm, there was a light frosting of dew on the earth, and the breezes were gentle. It was a perfect day for sparring, or hunting, or just taking a stroll and chatting. The young tom had to resist the urge to drool over the prospective fun, that would've been unsightly indeed. suprMEME (talk) 21:27, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow let the wind fluff out his fur as he calmly marched through the snow, flattening his ears to block out the sound of wind. He neared the border, making sure there were no signs of his brother.Silverstar 02:11, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
"You'll have to get through me first." Sparrowkit growled playfully, rolling over and pinning Darkkit, his small paws pressed lightly on the other kits chest. Emily -♫Don't wanna be a victim of authority!♫ 06:49, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
Darkkit playfully struggled. "Who wants to play leader with me? Pinekit your my deputy. I'm Darkstar! What's your deputy name Pinekit?"
Sparrowkit walked away from Darkkit slightly, freeing him. "Does that mean I get to be a warrior? I want to be called..." He thought about it for a moment. "Sparrowsong!" He meowed happily. Emily -♫Don't wanna be a victim of authority!♫ 15:54, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
Risepaw and Talonpaw watched the kits play, twitching their whiskers in amusement.---- Cedarflame let out a rude huff. Of course, since Gustywind died and left her with his kits, she was mateless with no attention. She knew she'd get attention once his kits came, which would probably be soon, but now there was nobody to smother her!Silverstar 15:58, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
Graymoon walked into camp, her tabby pelt smeared with blood and her eyes wild. Two small, spotted-tabby kittens hung from her jaws, mewling pitifully. The group of them reeked of blood and fear, and Graymoon practically collpased one she got in camp. The commotion woke up Guppystar, who came barging out of her den. "Graymoon?" she meowed, jumping down from the high-rock and dashing over to the queen, who had spent the last year mourning for her lost litter. "What happened? Are you okay? Where's my medicine cat?" Guppystar shouted, swiveling her head around as she looked for the familiar face. —Leggy 01:41, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
Cinderleaf, who had been dosing lightly in her den heard someone shout her rank. With a quick stretch, and a constant yawn as she walked out of the small hollow. She saw Guppystar standing with Graymoon, whom was holding a pair of kittens. Wait what the heck...? Cinderleaf bounded to a halt near her leader, before giving her a quick nod. "Right here, Guppystar." The black molly blinked a couple times. — — #chicks =trouble Sun Mar 22 01:56
Guppystar nudged the two kittens towards Cinderleaf, and helped Graymoon stand up enough that Cinderleaf could see the large, deep cut from her shoulder to her hip, parallel to her spine. "What happened?" Guppystar murmured, flattening her ears. Graymoon's eyes were still wild as she spoke: "I was on the border, walking, when I heard something shout and I was attacked by a strange she-cat..I had to kill her before she killed me. When I recovered from the fight, I found her kittens," she murmured, motioning towards the two tiny tabbies, who couldn't have been more than a week old. —Leggy 02:00, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
Cinderleaf gave the young kittens a quick sniff, not for scent but to see if they had any cuts. They were clear, but the smoke molly turned to see Graymoon's impressive one. "I have some supplies back in my den, it might be easier for you if we settled you in there. I've gotta clean up that cut so it doesn't get infected, we can't have that with these two needing a nurse." The young medicine cat gave a glance towards Guppystar to see her opinion on the manner. — — #chicks =trouble Sun Mar 22 02:22
He nodded, glad she had offered. "I don't see why not."
Cottonfur started off into the snowy wilderness, eyes and nose searching for any sign of life. The snow-scent muffled to world around him like a veil, but eventually he latched onto a richer, warmer scent. A hare. He motioned to his companion and whispered to her what he'd found, stalking off on silent paws to track the smaller creature. He could see it now, a quivering lump of white-on-white. suprMEME (talk) 16:15, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
Guppystar nodded. "Graymoon, you go join Cinderleaf, and I'll get these two a nurse. When they're done nursing, in a few weeks, would you like me to move them to your nest?" the leader asked, beign answerted by a feeble nod on GRaymoon's part. Guppystar picked up the two kittens, and carried them to the nursery while Graymoon limbed to the medicine den with Cinderleaf. Once in the nursery, Guppystar peered around, wondering what queens were nursing. She spotted her niece out of the corner of her eye, and headed over towards her. "Rookstorm?" she called, walking over to the she-cat's nest. "Could you nurse two more for another two weeks?" —Leggy 19:09, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
Willowflame lay in her nest, sleeping quietly as her flank rose and fell at a rather slow pace. It became slower and slower, until it moved no more, and the fragile elder went limp in her nest, her mate, Moonsight, and their kits welcoming her into StarClan. To her surprise, her daughter, Pumpkinpatch was there, claiming she suffocated in the snow. (They needed to die)Silverstar 21:39, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
Shadowclaw, having just finished walking in from using the dirtplace, noticed the den was eerily quiet. "Willowflame?" he whispered. He sniffed his way to her nest, finding her not breathing. He pushed his nose into her fur. "Rest easy, Willowflame," he whispered. He grabbed her scruff gently and pulled her out into the clearing. "Cats of WinterClan," he rasped. "I'm sad to say that one of my denmates, Willowflame, has joined StarClan, just a few minutes ago. I found her in her nest, her flank warm. She passed without pain." He bowed his head. Nettleface looked up from her meal. "Dear StarClan... I knew she was getting old, but I never thought she'd pass so soon!" — nervousbreakdance 21:44, 03/22/2015
(Can Guppy apprentice Darkkit, Spiderkit, and Graykit?) Darkkit sighed. "I Darkstaleader of WinterClan call upon on ancestors to name you Spiderpaw," the small black kit cut off dramatically. "Spiderwing. Graypaw I name you Grayfrost." Darkkit snorted. "My deputy will be Pine-" He froze forgetting Pinekit's deputy name.
Hazelfern led the one-eyed cat and small she-cat into camp. "Watch yourself don't do anything stupid." Hazelfern hissed. "Ivypaw fetch Guppystar and Cinderleaf." She commanded her apprentice.
Jadepool nodded. "She's all I have left so we've become pretty close. I really wish I could remember my father. She blames herself for his death..." She shook her head to clear away the sad thoughts. "Anyway, let's continue." She kicked some leaves over her prey and contiuned to walk with Finn. ---- Russet Leaf shrank down a bit. I've never seen so many cats before in one place...09:54, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow continued to walk on, occasionally tasting the air for any traces of his brother. Luckily, he wasn't finding anything.---- Gemcave sat next to Opalgaze, the tried black she-cat pressed against him. They had been speaking of having another litter, but worried something would happen to them, much like the murder of Eternitypaw. They sat beside the body of Willowflame, paying their respects.Silverstar 22:17, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
(Somebody rp with Rising here?)Hazelfern padded away she was getting plump. She didn't know who to tell that she's expecting. Turning she spotted Guppystar, "Guppystar can I talk to you?" She asked. Risingpaw swiped her paw at a fish and fell in drowing. Her body lay washed up on a bank not far from camp.— Mel Pray For Peace 14:58, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
(Guess these two could...) Risepaw and Talonpaw continued with their wrestling, Risepaw's fur spiking slightly. "Hah, you missed again!" He sassed, eventually getting pummeled in the face. The two toms continued with their play-fighting until Tigerclaw came by, twitching his tail. "Alright you two, alright, that's enough! C'mon, let's go battle training or hunting, that'll use up your energy."Silverstar 21:43, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
Hazelfern sighed. Spotting Cinderleaf she padded to the molly. "Cinderleaf," she greeted. Risingpaw stood over her body water lapped over her thick black-and-white fur.— Mel Pray For Peace 22:16, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
Webshadow passed Tigerclaw, Risepaw, and Talonpaw as they left, nodding in greetings. The apprentices and warrior made their way to the lake, their eyes narrowing. "Is that...?"Silverstar 22:35, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
Cinderleaf, whom was busy treating Graymoon heard Hazelfern call her name. Let's be honest here, the young medicine cat was busy trying to tend to the grey tabby before any infection could set in and she was needed?? Like how else would she react, as some cats knew the young smoke cat had a temper. "What?!" The black molly hissed, not looking up from Graymoon.
Meanwhile Loachtail sat quietly as her adoptive daughter and son slept at her side. On her other side sat her son, Owlpaw. Why was the pale tortoiseshell down you might ask? She replayed it over in her mind, as she positioned her head on her paws. There she was patrolling with her two elder sons, Owlpaw and Curlewpaw, and her beloved mate, Spiderface. It was a nice evening, as she might add to lighten the mood. That's when it went downhill, literally. As they returned to camp, the ground beneath them had become weak and while Loachtail made sure Owlpaw was safe, as she believed that her mate would help Curlewpaw, when she turned around she saw nothing. Absolutely nothing. The young queen told her remaining son to stay where he was, as she looked over the edge. The image just broke her.
Back in the actual waking world, Loachtail had started sobbing quietly. In the past moon she had lost Brokenkit to what Cinderleaf had diagnosed as a genetic disease, and her mate and son to the harsh territory of WinterClan. She felt Owlpaw shift beside her, as he nuzzled closer to her. Now, Owlpaw who hadn't seen what his mother had seen had a vague idea of what it was. The fluffy tom told himself to be strong for his mom, just like Spiderface would've wanted. He heard her cry, so he moved closer to make sure she wasn't alone again. The apprentice thought about how his mom would deal with these deaths, as he heard from his uncle about her reaction to her former mentor's death, and then her mother's. Owlpaw gave a soft sigh and watched as the medicine cat hissed at someone. — — #chicks =trouble Thu Mar 26 06:51
Cinderleaf, still busying herself with Graymoon didn't stand to face the tabby. "I say if you help and I'm going to say no, I don't need it." The black molly found herself hissing once again, guess it was the stress getting to her. — — #chicks =trouble Thu Mar 26 19:47
Surprise, Winterclan, the big buff cheeto puff has arrived. Cypresscloud came through the camp entrance, a (pretty small, admittedly) hawk in his mouth. The large ginger tabby held himself proudly, not realising he was letting one of the wings drag against the floor. Good job. A+. What they say is true. Death does wear blue 00:57, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
"How did you get that? I want that!"
Stepping out from a really puny fern came a primarily grey tom. Well, if it weren't for that giant patch of cream on his head, he wouldn't be called a pale tortoiseshell. Not like it mattered right now, anyway. He was pretty envious of Cypresscloud's catch; then again, he had to keep in mind that Cypress was a BARA of a cat, so puny hawks weren't a problem. If Mothface wanted to do that, he'd be taken away, goodbye Mothface, you won't be missed. He was starting to get kind of hungry, heh...just the right size and- ugh, how rude. He'd might as well take the hawk away from his brother if he was going to go on like that, no, you stop that. Bbunlegs 01:22, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
"Too bad. I'm giving it to one of the queens." Wow, Cypresscloud, you're being rude. Not even a bite for your bro? Not a little, itty bitty bite? Nope. Nothing. The entire bird is going to the nursery. "Why don't you go and catch something yourself, Mothface?" What they say is true. Death does wear blue 01:40, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
"No faair." Mothface, you're a grown-ass cat, and Cypresscloud is right, you should go get something to eat. Mumbling a 'fine', he went off to the prey heap and got himself a mouse. Well, it wasn't much, but it'd do for now. Right now he was just being a whiny pissbaby - Mothface there's always next time, jeebus. Maybe in a few minutes or hours he'd improve, but right now just getting denied even a bit of hawk was kiind of disappointing. Then again, if Cypress was going to send it off to some cats like the queens or the elders, maybe it wouldn't be as bad. Bbunlegs 02:00, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
Talonpaw and Risepaw paused at the lake, spotting a body beside it. "T-Tigerclaw, we've found a body!" Yowled Talonpaw, who was already racing towards it. Risepaw, on the other hand, was too busy purring at himself in pool of water. Tigerclaw raced after his apprentice, skidding to a halt beside the young apprentice's body. "...Looks like Risingpaw, I believe she's drowned. Come you two, we aren't training now, we've got to get her body back to camp."Silverstar 15:42, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
Jaystorm watched Dipperpaw run off, his eyes narrowed. He knows where Crowpaw is, he thought, getting now angrier than before. Not only that, as Jaystorm observed, but a few other apprentices were missing as well, like Guppystar's daughter Gullpaw, and Ivypaw. Some of them could be outside of camp, but he didn't remember seeing the apprentices out when he was out there, and the two cats mentors were inside of camp. The fur on the back of his neck was rising, so he soon tried to calm himself and sit down, pondering the situation as a whole.
Meanwhile, the conversation Dipperpaw had with Jaystorm made him realise Guppystar might notice Gullpaw's absence soon, so no matter how much Dipperpaw would rather throw himself off of a tall tree than to do this, he approached Guppystar's den with a fearful expression on his face. Looking nearly ready to cry, the tomcat called out for the leader. 20:40 Sat Mar 28
Nixflight sat in the shadows of camp, eyeing everyone as they went by. She kept her cool as several more went bustling around camp, right in front of her. She watched Jaystorm and Dipperpaw, on edge about something. She looked around and noted that Ivypaw and Gullpaw were missing. She shook her head and continued to watch camp bustle around in their busy day. Rainy is da... BANANA QUEEN! 23:18, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
