Information on Roleplaying Edit
Silverwhisker will be guiding the quest plot. Follow her leads.
A plot for the quest has already been determined. If you have suggestions, feel free to mention the previously mentioned users.
If a user does not come on to roleplay their character for a certain event, or has previously said that they are not going to be there, the character will be semi-roleplayed. This only takes place when the user has not been on for a while. It is different than a user not editing for a day.
This means that a designated user or user(s) will be allowed to show the minor actions of your character. For example, if Active User has the power to semi-RP Inactive User's Inactiveface, the roleplay will look like this:
Activestar purred and tossed a snowball back at the other two, eyes twinkling. " Catch me if you can!" The leader was certainly enjoying his time away from responsibility.--- Inactiveface followed the cats.
Roleplay Format Edit
Roleplay will be cut into sections. Each section will be a subheading of a certain event. For example, under the main heading roleplay: " Fight with Foxes." Or, if nothing eventful happens: " Week X Day X."
Roleplay for two different characters who, for example, get lost, will be the subheading of a subheading (sub-heading 2). If DC Cat A and B get cut off from the group in the fox fight, subsequent roleplays sections will have a heading for their own roleplay. For example: (sub-heading 1) " Night After the Skirmish." (sub-heading 2) " DC Cat A and B."
Combat/Hostile Situations Edit
The cats will encounter dangers along the way. Major hostile forces will be controlled by Warriorfan123, and will be in a special font like this. Roleplayers may apply to control a force, or if they would like a certain injury to happen to their cat, they may message Warriorfan123. Before starting an rp like that, Warriorfan123 will ask whether you give permission for her to injure your character. Following are the possible responses, along with the consequences.
Responding along the lines of 'lightly': Edit
In a physical fight: earn scratches, shallow bites, or torn fur.
Natural disaster: the character will escape shaken but with no real damage.
Responding along the lines of 'more than lightly': Edit
In a physical fight: deeper bites and marks that bleed noticeably
Natural disaster: will require medical attention, but not urgently.
Responding along the lines of 'seriously, but not fatal': Edit
In a physical fight: wounds with heavy bleeding, perhaps biting off parts if given permission, or breaking limbs
Natural disaster: perhaps saved from drowning, severe smoke inhalation, or trapped.
Responding along the lines of 'near fatal':
In a physical fight: harming the belly, or neck injuries that can be treated
Natural disaster: broken legs, near suffocation, etc.
Death and Markings Edit
It is up to you if you want your character scarred or maimed. The controller with only roleplay the giving of the injury, not the consequences. These are up to you to decide.
Also, if you want your character to die, you must make it known beforehand. Give permission to the killer. Random users may not suddenly control the attacker! This will be controlled, previously, by the designated person.
Week 1, Day 1Edit
Stormstar, leading the cats out of the camp, silently prayed to StarClan that everyone would get along. They couldn't risk any trouble on the trip, as he predicted that there would already be plenty of obstacles along the way, especially predators such as foxes and badgers. The sky was still a creamy-pink color, and between two pale clouds sat a faint blue star. That would lead them to their home, but it seemed so far away...Stormstar 18:42, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering stared up at the sky, following Stormstar's gaze to a vague glimmer of light in the sky. The blue star! Aureolering thought. She nudged Falconheart and pointed her tail-tip upward. "Look!" She said through gritted teeth. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 18:49, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire followed in suit. Her paws padded lightly over the dew-flecked ground, eager eyes looking back once before drinking in the new landscape. Her tail rose in kitlike excitement as she drank in everything around them. She looked up, spotting the star, and felt another surge of excitement. Gryffindor 18:47, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
The leader quickly decided that it would be best to keep at a steady walking pace, seeing that the journey could be long and exhuasting. "Nobody rush ahead, we can't risk getting seperated."Stormstar 18:50, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
"We don't need your sass either, Blazefire. We're all a team, time to deal with it. DarkClan's apart of it as well, they aren't a disease, y'know." Stormstar commented over his shoulder in dry tone.Stormstar 18:53, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Stop it! Stop it! screeched herself inside. The bad-Blazefire-be-nice and the let's-hit-Stormstar-over-the-head sides of her went into combat. The latter won. " Did I ever say DarkClan was a disease? Stop putting words in my mouth you-" she quickly cut herself off. Gryffindor 18:58, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
"Can you please listen, for StarClan's sake? If you're going to keep this up, I'm only going to ignore you," Stormstar finished coldly before turning his back on the ginger she-cat and walking on, his tail tip twitching in annoyance. StarClan, you must want to torture me by bringing this brute along...Stormstar 19:01, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
(whiskers, are you able to get on chat now?) Blazefire let out a snort. I told you! the good-girl side of her crowed. The ginger tabby swallowed, furious, before holding her head high and keeping herself in check. That bastard won't get to me. How could I ever have liked him at one point? Gryffindor 19:03, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart flattened her ears at the sound of the bickering between her leader and Blazefire. "Easy, easy. The last thing we need now is to fight, and you two are no exception." I could even learn how to LOVE 19:36, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
FlameClan cats really are irritating. " Yes, I have realized such. Am I saying anything at the moment?" she said this in an undertone to Falconheart, flicking her tail-ti. Gryffindor 19:57, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
"If you continue to sass my friend, you'll have much more to worry about than mere threats." She snarled. "So just shut up, for StarClan's sake!" “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 20:16, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
All her anger began rushing up through her, directed at the she-cat who dared insult her, after all that had happened, all of her struggles, she was being threatened by that? It wasn't right, it was wrong, but Blazefire had had enough of being reserved. The ginger tabby halted. She stared at Aureolering with cold eyes, fur along her spine slowly rising. Gryffindor 20:22, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud stuck close to Blazefire, still not very trusting of the other cats - especially DarkClan. "How long did that prophecy say we'd be following this star?" he mumbleed, sounding rather pathetic. He missed his mate already; he longer for her scent, and her fur pressed against his. He sighed and trudged on. Eventually, he got fed up with the fighting. "Will you fools just shut up already?" he yowled, stopping and spinning on his heels to face the other cats. "I sure don't want to listen to you fuzz-brains bicker the entire time. Just be quiet and walk!" he hissed. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 20:25, 11/29/2015
"Are you challenging me to a duel?" Aureolering hissed at Blazefire. "Because I will gladly show you how a real warrior fights." “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 20:28, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire curled her lip at Aureolering. Falconheart was glaring at her, Aureolering's claws were out, and her own Clanmate was yelling at her. Bitterness rose in her throat. Was that how it was? She was alone, truly alone, and that was how she'd felt as a rogue. The tabby's gaze became impassive once more. She strode ahead, head high, tail raised, jaw clamped shut before uttering one more thing to Aureolering: " Hypocrite." Gryffindor 20:30, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering caught that final word, but dismissed it with a relieved sigh. "You know." She whispered quietly to Falconheart, "I'm honestly glad that didn't escalate any further. But I won't let some ScorchClan know-it-all push everyone around." “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 20:35, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost followed the other cats, his tail-tip flicking. "Knock it off you two," He hissed, flattening his ears. "We don't want to start a fight. Especially on this important manner." sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 20:43, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost perked his ears, his gaze settled on all of the other cats. DarkClan better not think of causing trouble, or this whole mission could go down.. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 20:49, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud flattened his ears. He hates this damn fighting... And he had to put up with it for... How long? Until they see the stupid star over a dumb lake? He moved closer to his Clanmates, wanting to stay away from anyone else... Who knows what those other Clans had planned. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 21:23, 11/29/2015
Pebblefrost shook out his dark blue-gray fur, his tail-tip twitching in annoyance as he glanced at the DarkClan cats. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 21:35, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
The cats would bury Rex and move on. After they had left, his body would be dug up by wolves and 'disposed' of. At dusk, they would decide to make camp for the day and sleep early. Guards would be stationed and the cats would sleep.
Week 1, Day 2 Edit
The cats would wake up early in the morning. The sun had barely risen, and dew was thick on the grass. Somewhere in the distance, a crow called.
Redcloud had been up for a little while, just staring at the sky above him. "Good morning," he grunted as the others began to wake up. "We should hunt. I'm starving," he said, stretching. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:49, 11/29/2015
Aureolering blinked open her eyes when she felt them close. She spent the night guarding the camp, and was extremely tired after the ordeal. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 22:51, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Who said you were in charge? Blazefire had slept a little ways away from the rest. She woke up, swaying slightly on her feet as she stretched. Today, she was not going to let her emotions take control of her. With a quick glance up at the star: " And which way should we go?" Gryffindor 22:55, November 29, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud spotted a stream after padding a few tree lengths to the right of their camp - "You guys like fish? I could catch a few, unless you prefer land prey," he called. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 23:14, 11/29/2015
Stormstar said not another thing, and was certain to not even glance at Blazefire. Ever since the day before, the she-cat had gotten under his fur, and definitely in a very negative way. If he got any chance, he'd swing at the molly if nobody was around, give her a good smack to her thick skull. Cursing under his breath, Stormstar pushed his way through the bracken, however, he was sure to walk silently, as he didn't wish to disturb the prey.Stormstar 02:17, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
Without waiting for a reply, Blazefire left the other cats and began sniffing, trying to find a stream. The new scents were unfamiliar and she was on extreme alert, ears pricking at the slightest sound. At last, the tabby discovered an algae-ridden pond. She sniffed. The air didn't smell like fish, but that didn't mean there weren't any. Forget Classic Editor...
Redcloud looked at the pond, and without hesitating, dove into the mucky water, without a splash. A minute later, he resurfaced, a small fish in his mouth. "There's not mutch down here," he said, swimming to shore with the fish. "I'll try for more... Looked like there was just enough for everyone, not counting the ones hiding. I grew up finishing like this. I should be able to get everyone something, if you want," he asked, setting the fish on the bank. "Unless you'd like land prey. I'm sure you could do that for yourselves though," he meowed. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 03:05, 11/30/2015
Blazefire was impressed. The algae was not appealing to her, even though she had fished quite a bit in her youth. She quickly flashed a paw into a cloud of green muck. A thin silver shape shot out of it and she quickly flicked her paw, aiming to throw it onto the bank. The fish missed the bank by a whisker-length and plopped back into the pond. Blazefire accepted this defeat philosophically. " Yeah, my fishing skills are a tad rusty. I think I'll stick to land prey from now on. And, Redcloud," she coughed a bit before continuing, " I'm sorry about yesterday. I just- I find it so hard to control myself now." Gryffindor 14:43, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn had been really quiet since the journey started and didn't know most of the cats. She was surprised that she'd been chosen by "StarClan". What was a "StarClan?" Were they good? — Ryewhisker 15:20, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
(Flame, Blazefire is nowhere near Stormstar. Also, again, they don't like each other atm, so there is no way Pebblefrost would sense a romantic connection). " So, yeah..." Blazefire concluded lamely. Gryffindor 16:09, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud twitched his whiskers, minuscule water droplets flying as he did so. "It's alright - I could totally reteach you," he said, looking at the spot Blazefire's fish disappeared. He cocked his head as the she-cat explained the previous day's behavior. "Tensions are super high right now, I get it. It's only day two and I've found myself struggling to keep it together. Hold in all that anger; it'll be useful. Who knows what we'll face out here. But whatever it is that's pissing you off, imagine that as the enemy. Trust me, it helps." He climbed out of the water, shaking his fur off. He crouched down and picked up his catch. "Stho. Sthould we head back?" he said around the fish in his mouth. "I'm sthure the othersth are hungry." — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 21:26, 11/30/2015
Blazefire let out a sigh of relief. " Thanks, for understanding. And thanks for the offer, too. You can head back, but I need to catch something first so I don't look like an idiot. Oh- hello!" she whispered the last words, spotting a fat frog in a clump of dead grass a few steps away. Blazefire inched closer to it, and pounced, cutting of it's startled croak with a swift bite to the throat. " It's prey," she said in a muffled voice, picking up the carcass in her jaws. Gryffindor 21:32, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud wrinkled his nose. "Frogsth are not my firstht choith," he laughed through the fish. He turned to head back to the place they'd camped for the night, starting to jog as his moth began watering at the taste of the fish. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 23:10, 11/30/2015
(I'm such a fail. I thought his muffled words were typos omg). Blazefire followed, whiskers twitching. Her long fur caught on an outstretched branch and she stumbled. Frustrated, she tugged until it ripped, dropping the frog in the process. She wrinkle dup her nose as it flopped disgustingly on the ground. Gritting her teeth in resolve, Blazefire picked it back up and quickened her pace. Gryffindor 23:15, November 30, 2015 (UTC)
(blaze, tomorrow (on the rp) will be that event) Stormstar managed to drag down a hare, and was rather proud of his catch. However, he'd be a good tom and share it with someone else, seeing that it would make him look bad if he hogged it down all by himself. He usually did that back at home after going on a big hunt, after all, he was always hungry. Most considered a high metabolism a blessing, but Stormstar felt a need to argue with that statement. Picking his catch up by its scruff, he carried the long-eared prey animal back to their temporary camp.Stormstar 03:16, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
(got youuuu). Blazefire strolled into camp with her frog and dropped it down in the center of camp, starting a fresh-kill pile. She highly doubted anyone would want to eat it, so it was as good as hers. " Good stuff," she said mildly. " Plenty of protein." Gryfflepuff 11:52, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn then walked to Talon her eyes empty of any emotion. "Wanna go hunting?" She asked.— Ryewhisker 13:51, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud placed his fish in the pile; he'd caught a total of 6; all of them were a decent size. He couldn't quite figure out what they were, but they were good... at least, that's how they smell and tasted when he was carrying it. He took one, scarfing it down quickly. He eyed Stormstar's hare; it was an impressive catch. "Stormstar? How long until we set out again?" he asked. Glancing up to the sky, he noticed it was about sunhigh, maybe a smidge earlier. They'd spent the morning hunting. (not trying to control the rp; but literally this is what time it would be after hunting; hunting takes a while. realistically, it should be noon, maybe 11-10. anyway i'm also excited for the thing.) — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 13:59, 12/1/2015
(it's fine, timing doesn't really matter). Blazefire titled her head to one side. Stormstar had made an impressive catch, but she wasn't going to admit that. " We still have to eat, Falconheart," she said mildly. Her tail swished over the grass. " If no one wants my fro- nutrient filled, by the way- I'll eat it." Gryfflepuff 18:17, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering, after depositing a plump vole in the small pile, twitched her ear in surprise. "You caught a frog? Delicious. I'll take it." She said, without an ounce of sarcasm in her tone. Is it weird I like frogs over normal prey? She wondered to herself. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 18:27, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire nodded and pushed the frog towards Aureolering. "... and I'll take this vole, if you don't mind." She dragged said prey over and began to eat slowly. " Good catch." Gryfflepuff 18:29, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn decided then when she got no answer from talon that she would "mingle" as the others called it. Looking around she tried to find a suitable cat she could talk to without being shunned. The clans didn't really interact with DarkClan so that made it harder for her. Sighing she went over to Pebblefrost and greeted the tom with a quiet hello.— Ryewhisker 20:24, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
(btw, Mink, Talon's owner is on vacation. I'm only semi-roleplaying her, so I can't really say anything except very basic things). Blazefire nodded, stomach growing appreciatively as she finished the vole. She buried the remains, not wanting a predator or threat to be able to track them easily. The sun warmed the fur on her spine and she arched it, eyes half-closed in pleasure--- Talon went hunting, and not feeling like sharing her catch, ate it herself. She sat closer to Sierra JoAnn than anyone else, eyeing the others suspiciously. (try and wrap up the eating within your next posts, if possible please). Gryfflepuff 20:36, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn turned to greet Talon as well when she joined her with Pebblefrost. Sierra herslef felt a bit weird with these cats, but didn't want to start any trouble.— Ryewhisker 20:37, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
(whos that for?)— Ryewhisker 20:41, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost flicked an ear, feeling a slight breeze brush through his fur. He clung his claws against the ground, watching Sierra JoAnn. "Greetings," He meowed formally, trying not to sound to harsh and hostile. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 20:59, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost perked his ears, watching the other FlameClan cats as well. Maybe they aren't so bad... He meowed. But I guess I've just been lonely lately... until Ryewhisker came along... sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 21:18, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire shook her head slowly. " No, I already ate. I said that before." The tabby then began to groom herself, pausing between licks before replying: "After everyone's eaten, we should get a move on as soon as possible." Gryfflepuff 21:56, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud surveyed the other questing cats before cleaning the leftover algae out of his fur from his "dip" in the pond. He quickly swiped his tongue over his fur, perking up as a bird flew overhead. Deciding his fur could wait, he laid down and rolled onto his back, watching the sky, through a "frame" the treetops made above him. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:17, 12/1/2015
Pebblefrost cocked his head, shifting slightly as he gazed at the other cats. He stretched his jaws into a wide yawn, still exhausted from the journey. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 22:22, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
I wonder if I should apologize to Blazefire for yesterday. Aureolering thought. She doesn't seem so mean at all. Maybe I was just being unfair... “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 22:30, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud lifted his head a bit, still on his back. He saw Pebblefrost with his head tilted, and rolled over. The ginger tabby got to his paws, shaking the dirt from his fur. "Pebblefrost!" Redcloud greeted. He trotted over to the grey tom, flicking an ear. "How're you holding up? It's only been two days and I'm beat," Redcloud admitted quietly. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:33, 12/1/2015
Pebblefrost stretched out, letting the warm rays of sun ripple gently through his fur. "I've been well," He meowed, dipping his head in greeting to Redcloud. "Busy with Clan duties, as usual. And a bit worried about someone back at camp... But that's off topic. How are you?" sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 22:35, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
(far away game tomorrow, probably won't be on)"We'll wait for everyone to finish eating, then we'll continue heading north," Stormstar responded, a bit happy that nobody wished to share his catch with him. Eager like a young kit, the leader plopped down on the ground and quickly began munching on his catch.Stormstar 03:20, December 2, 2015 (UTC)
"Thanks, I'm Sierra JoAnn." She said the unknown cat. The abyssinian gingerly taking small bites of the fish. In her opinion fish tasted down right horrible, but she'd get over it.— Ryewhisker 14:19, December 2, 2015 (UTC)
('kay, I take Talon back now 'cause I'm baaack. Blazey, can you semi-rp her again when I go off again on Tuesday/Wednesday for my longer break?) Talon shuffled awkwardly away from Sierra JoAnn when she got offered the fish, the dark tabby still not very happy with these other cats yet. Hmph. Still my enemies, in a sense, but they want to be friends... sigh. I don't know what to do... --The mind is just a complicated machine 05:53, December 3, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn shivered in disgust after eating the fish then headed out quickly to wash the taste from her mouth with a vole. After catching the vole she headed back to talon hoping maybe she'd at least share it with her. "Hey, Talon." The Abyssinian called to her semi-friend.— Ryewhisker 14:22, December 3, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud chuckled in response to Pebblefrost. "Same; well, just not being deputy, which would be pretty cool. Scarletclaw'd like to be leader some day, did you know that? I think she'd be a great leader..." He said, getting lost in thought. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 20:39, 12/3/2015
Pebblefrost chuckled back quietly, lifting his head and shaking out his dark fur. "Everyone in ScorchClan I'm sure would be a wonderful leader one day," He meowed, his whiskers twitching in amusement. "Being deputy is alot more work than you may think, though. Organizing patrols... sending out cats, defending borders, making sure everything is alright.. Get's a little tiring after awhile." sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 21:33, December 3, 2015 (UTC)
(I think it's time these kitties get on the move). Blazefire heard them and twitched an ear. She was surprised at the surge of- jealousy, was it?- coming up inside of her at the mention of Scarletclaw as leader. The tabby let out a quiet huff of amusement at herself. I didn't realize I fancied myself as deputy. Besides, I shouldn't be sour towards others. I probably wouldn't be a good leader anyway: I'm too quiet and not the risk-taker. Plus in my... current state... I'm not fit to lead anyone. A sudden thought struck her. I told someone I wanted to be leader a while back, didn't I? Oh, wait, it was Stormstar... despite herself, she found her mood rapidly becoming dark. No! This isn't gonig to happen again! rising and shaking herself, the tabby called out in her gentle but clear voice: " As much as I'd love to sunbathe myself, we should really get moving. We need to make as much of the daylight as I can. Follow me," with a quick glance up at the sky, she gauged the direction and set off to the North. Gryfflepuff 21:39, December 3, 2015 (UTC)
"I'm sure she could handle it," Redcloud said, leading Pebblefrost after the other ScorchClan she-cat. "She's tough, headstrong, and doesn't take crap from anyone. Another good suffix for her would have been -storm, really, but it is what it is, no?" he mused, nudging the grey tom's shoulder lightly as they walked. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 00:26, 12/4/2015
Pebblefrost chuckled once again, his tail-tip flicking. His eyes focused on the ground for a moment, and his eyes whirled back to the tom. Is she trying to get me to give up my deputy position?? Lifting his head and turning his gaze back forward, he shook his head slowly in response. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 00:32, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire had slowly tuned out of the leadership discussion. Willowstar, Pebblefrost, or whoever becomes leader will make a worthy choice. It also seemed to her that Redcloud was hinting a little too obviously, but she refrained from commenting. The ginger tabby admired the landscape spread out before them. She squinted into the sunlight. Gryfflepuff 00:36, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(they're just having a casual conversation, it's not like she's gonna pursue it (esp when pebble is still dep, and i have the current med cat of sc lmao) Redcloud flattened his ears. Had he said something wrong? He walked a few paces away, figuring he had. Maybe.. It was the mention of Scarletclaw's dream of becoming leader. He kept his ears flattened and hunched down, walking a bit ahead of the group. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 01:09, 12/4/2015
(ik, it's just Blazefire. It's in her to formulate random opinions. no offense intended). Blazefire kept walking. They'd hit a slightly rocky section and she paused, trying to gauge how she's climb up safely. (btw, guys, you can control the landscape kind of, by saying things like 'rocky area' or 'slippery area'. Build off of what others say usually, so don't randomly put the cats in a desert when someone else say's they're in a marsh). Gryfflepuff 01:11, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering winced as she stared at the rocky area. I've never been good at climbing. My pads just aren't built for it. She thought nervously. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 01:25, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(Pushing this along, we have a very special plan for you guys >:D) Stormstar pushed himself after the others, the sun slowly sinking in the sky, but the cats walked on, until the rocks were no more. It was replaced by crunching leaves, dew-soaked and soothing to their aching paw pads. Stormstar sighed as his paws began to drag, the tom growing exhausted, but he refused to slow.Stormstar 01:30, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Not soon after, Blazefire would decide on a campsite. The cats would hunt their evening meal, some share tongues, and then fall asleep.
Week 1, Day 3Edit
Upon awakening, the cats would hunt a quick meal. After finishing up the scraps, they milled about, some talking while others sat in stony silence. They then wondered when to get going, waiting for someone to take charge.
"I think I hear a river nearby, we could use some nice fish and a good drink." Stormstar murmured with his blue-gray ears pricked, his eyes scanning the forest. He quickened his pace and moved in the direction of the roaring water, however, an odd scent wafted past his nose...It was feline, but it...Stormstar 01:43, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
What Stormstar saw would be two, large pawprints. They were about three times the size of a regular cat's, and stood ominously fresh by the river.
(quick post idk) Pebblefrost walked beside the cats, pausing. "Something wrong, Stormstar?" He asked, taking a few pawsteps back. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 01:54, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire followed in suit. She stared at the tracks, hairs on her spine slowly rising with the feeling that something was looking over her shoulder. Nothing was there of course, but her heart still beat quickly. She slowly unsheathed her claws. Gryfflepuff 01:56, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
"...Just...stay quiet...and don't move..." Stormstar kept himself pressed against the ground as his hackles raised and claws slid out, the foreign scent washing over him once more. And there it was, only a few fox-lengths away and glowering at the cats through the bracken...It was a bobcat, and he was hungry.Stormstar 01:57, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Week 1, Day 3- Bobcat AttackEdit
Spotted fur. Large ears. Lanky build. The cats would register these things as a slender body erupted from the bushes alongside the river. It made an odd hissing sound, staring at the cats for a heartbeat. Then, the ravenous beast launched itself at the nearest cat. (first person to post is the nearest).
Pebblefrost's fur stood high on end, and he took a few pawsteps forward, glancing aside of the bush. He let out a breath, his belly touching the cold tips of the bladed grass. He paused moments later, feeling a cold breath touch his muzzle. He glared up and quickly jumped back. "Run!" sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 01:59, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar flattened his ears, springing away from the over-sized kitty and racing alongside the river. To his relief, he spotted a thing branch nearby the rough waters. It'd be too heavy for the larger predator. "This way, to the bridge!!"Stormstar 02:03, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
The bobcat turned it's hungry eyes on the 'weaker' prey. It immediately rushed at Stormstar, aiming at his throat. Stormstar's trip, however, caused the long yellow fangs to miss. Instead, they sunk into his shoulder.
(guys, tell me how bad the thing can wound your kittes) The bobcat growled, eyeing Falconheart balefully. .
Blazefire skidded to a halt and whirled around. For a moment, she stared transfixed at the bobcat biting Stormstar's shoulder, and eyeing Falconheart. Then a loud 'no' exploded from her throat, her legs moved before she told them to, and she flung herself on the bobcat's shoulders. Gryfflepuff 02:22, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar managed to squirm his way free, skidding around and baring his fangs, only to stare at Blazefire in confusion. What was she doing, helping him? Regardless, Stormstar leaped at the bobcat as well, aiming for its trunk-like legs.Stormstar 02:26, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(guys, tell me how bad the thing can wound your kittes) It growled in rage, bucking wildly. It's prey, fighting it! The bobcat managed to throw off both cats, who would fall to the ground and find it bearing down on them.
Blazefire let out a grunt as she fell on her side. She rolled over as fangs clicked ominously where her neck previously was. Stepping back and shaken, she shouted to Stormstar. " You idiot! Get away while I hold him!" Gryfflepuff 02:30, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(she can get wounded, but not enough so it's fatal. I'm not too ready for her to die yet </3) Falconheart scratched at the bobcat, every thought a rush from her brother. Keep going! You've got to go on! Encouragement helped her focus, a flare of determinatiom in her gaze. I could even learn how to LOVE 02:31, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(he can get a few more nicks on 'em)Stormstar snapped back at the molly as he rolled onto his paws. "I'm no weak kit! I'm not letting you sit here and die!" He leaped at the predator once more, his claws unsheathed.Stormstar 02:33, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(k) The creature lashed out wildly, hitting something and feeling blood wet his paws. These things would not deny him his food! One of the bobcat's lashing paws would hit Falconheart, and the other would hit Blazefire.
One of the bobcat's lashing paws hit her head. She saw stars and panicked, unable to see anything. Adrenaline pulsed through her veins as she fell to the floor, the ground tipping beneath her paws. Gryfflepuff 02:35, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(k) The bobcat snarled in fury, smashing both paws done with force on Stormstar. It snapped at Falconheart, eyes glowing with rage.
Falconheart couldn't stand to be injured anymore. "Let's get going, quick! We'll both be killed if we stay any longer!" Quickly she turned, hoping Stormstar would follow her. I could even learn how to LOVE 02:46, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
The sudden attack sent Stormstar backing away, shaking his head as pain pounded through it, as well as his shoulders. He had managed to land a blow on its flank, but the pain he was going through was intense.Stormstar 02:48, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
" Go... bridge..." Blazefire said to Falconheart. It was worse to be like this. She had no idea if the bobcat was coming at her, or not. The tabby crumpled again, lashing out with her legs. Gryfflepuff 03:10, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(k) Spotted fur now torn and streaked with blood, the bobcat made a frantic lunge at Stormstar. He was weak, and would be easy prey... right?
Despite being weak and in great pain, the leader wouldn't quit, he wouldn't give up. He had eight lives to spare, but his clan needed them. He quickly backed up, regardless of the intense pain pounding in his head.Stormstar 03:13, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
The bobcat let out a howl of triumph, it had this prey cornered! Slowly, menacingly, the bobcat began to advance.
Wait, what? The bobcat stared in confusion as Stormstar lunged randomly to the side. It shrugged mentally and swiped heavily at him, sneding him staggering back a pace.
Thankfully, the leader was still dizzily staggering about, so the bobcat's slow attack only hit him on the flank, causing him to lurch forward. "For StarClan's sake, Blazeflame, let's just both get on this bridge!" He snapped lazily, preparing to leap...only into the rushing water rather than the bridge he thought he saw.Stormstar 03:47, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
She was such a coward, backing away! Blazefire felt worthless as she sped towards the bridge, ground flashing disjointedly in her vision. She saw the bridge, she leapt, and the next thing she knew was cold... and then nothing.
Gryfflepuff 03:55, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Guys, this is how it's gonna roll. Bobcat is still open, when the other questers come on, rp with the bobcat. If you are Brams, I give you permission to temporarily control it to wound Talon. Other peeps, fight it and I'll post back and yeah. That way it's fair. Blaze and Storm are now away from the group, so they will be roleplayed in a different sub-sub-heading.</br>
His fury was so great now, one could almost feel it. The bobcat spun around and faced the remainder: Talon, Sierra JoAnn, Redcloud, Pebblefrost, Aureolering and Falconheart. He would get them. With a terrifying roar, he charged.
(Just have Pebble near to death, but have some cats save him by chasing it out) Pebblefrost limped slowly towards the bobcat, snarling furiously. He lashed his tail and struck a blow at its face. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 11:48, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn quickly stepped up to stand beside Pebblefrost her tail lashing as she, as well, snarled at the animal.— Ryewhisker 14:25, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart's eyes widened, running to shove her friends away. "Move, we'll all be killed if we fight anymore!" The bobcat's claws scratched her flank, sudden and immeasureable pain erupting around her body. "Keep moving, let's go! We're not dying yet!" She started towards the bridge, drips of blood landing on the ground. "Come on, let's go!" I could even learn how to LOVE 21:26, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost kept his fur on end as the bobcat continued to brawl with him. Growling, he sliced his claws across its muzzle, only to be thrown away by the force of it's grasp. Spitting angrily, he slid across the ground, feeling blood pulse from the wound. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 21:29, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
"Move!" Falconheart screamed. "We're all going to be killed if we fight anymore!" Black was already swirling in her vision. "To the bridge, now!" I could even learn how to LOVE 21:38, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud, yet to be injured, swiped at the bobcat's face. "Get away from them!" he shouted, his claws raining down on the bigger cat's face. (he's supposed to get scars/ sliced ear so (i talked to blaze like a few days ago abt it)) — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 21:49, 12/4/2015
(I've got Pebblefrost near death, Aureolering's tail, and Redcloud's scars. Also, guys, what's with the random Aureolering section? I'll move it back when I get a reply) The bobcat was gradually weakening from blood loss, but it was to stupid to give up the fight. The bobcat snarled from Redcloud's blows, but cuffed him heavily over the head with his unsheathed claws. The claws bit into the flesh on the tom's ear and blood sprung from the wounds, running down his face into his eyes.
Redcloud yelped in pain and backed away as quick as he could; he couldn't see well, due to the blood trickling down his face. He wiped his face with a white paw, then hissed and fluffed his fur up, making him look bigger, before scurrying up a thin tree, which was far too frail to support the bobcat's weight. If the dumb cat tried to climb it, it'd likely break, which would injure it, but it'd probably injure Redcloud too. Redcloud licked the blood off his paw and drew it over his face, and looked around for cobwebs in his tree-perch. He clambered up a few branches and grabbed what he found, and used what he could on his ear. He looked back down, watching the bobcat's every move. "What're you gonna do now, you lump of lard!" he yowled at it. He, along with his quest-mates, had done quite some damage to the bobcat, so hopefully it'd flee soon to heal. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:49, 12/4/2015
Aureolering made another attempt to wound the enormous foe, but with an awkward flip stuck her tail right in the Bobcat's nose. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 23:12, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
The bobcat flung himself at the three Redcloud was in, aiming to knock the tabby out. These blows injured him more than the warrior above, and he keened in pain. Aureolering's white tail flashing in his vision. As retaliation, he crunched his teeth down on it.
At first Aureolering heard the sickening crunch, and for a few moments felt nothing at all. But then it came... the full-fledged flames of pain. Aureolering struggled feebly to free herself from the monster's jaws, and that tiny pull was all it took to dismember the broken piece of her tail completely. A little more than half her tail, gone! She felt herself falling from the tree, the bloody limb dancing above her. StarClan... she prayed, expecting to die on the rocks below. Protect Falconheart. Protect Stormstar and Blazefire. Protect the young'n Sierra JoAnn. Protect them all, for me. (Don't worry, she won't die, obviously. I'm just adding drama) “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 00:22, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost, whom was severely wounded, limped after the other cats, calling frailty behind them. "Hold up.." He coughed, falling to the ground. "...How long is the bridge, exactly? I don't know how much farther I can go without my wounds just flat out killing me." sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 00:51, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
(Flame, they haven't left yet... also, get your kitties to the bridge quickly so this fight doesn't drag on too long).Feeling fairly confident it had felled Aureolering, the bobcat turned its attention back to the others. The world was beginning to fade, but it wouldn't give up. The bobcat snarled and slammed Redcloud's tree again before lunging at Pebblefrost.
Aureolering slammed into the ground. Shortly after, she blinked her eyes open. I'm alive! She though, wincing at the new, deep cuts all over her blood-stained pelt. The world seemed dimmer, though, like it was slowly fading. I won't be for much longer if I don't get to the bridge! She dragged her severely wounded body in the direction of the bridge, leaving a trail of blood in her wake. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 01:04, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
(I'm going to wait for Fern and Flame to post before ending this, Brams too). No... was this defeat? The might predator who had evaded man, who had forged himself a life in his ruined habitat, who had dominated this place rom years... was he dying? He was desperate, he couldn't. Against his will, his knees crumpled and he sank to the floor. (not dead yet though).
(aight, quick post) Pebblefrost, after a long struggle, had made it past the bridge, letting out a heavy breath. Hauling himself forward, he looked back for a quick moment, surveying everyone quietly. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 01:13, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
(Just Fern and Brams now). He began to muster every last ounce of strength he had. They were not getting away this easy1!
Redcloud watched as the bobcat crumpled to the ground. He wanted to bad to slash the bobcat's throat open and watch it die. He was uncharacteristically pissed at this horrible ball of fur for harming his Clanmate, Pebblefrost, and the other questers. He knew he could kill the weakened bobcat before it reganed it's strength, but he knew it was best to run. He jumped down from the tree, walking over to the struggling bobcat, biting as hard as he could into each of the bobcat's huge paws, puncturing the pads. "Try and walk on those, you monster," he hissed as he backed away, claws extended and fur fluffed up. He retreated to the bridge, still fuming with anger. (is that ok or...? you can delete the paw part if not) — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 01:57, 12/5/2015
(It's totally fine c: and I hope you don't mind guys, going to quickly summarize the actions here). So... much... pain... the bobcat tipped it's head back and yowled as its pawpads stung. Then, inexplicably, it rose to its paws again. It made a desperate lunge at the retreating cats, using the last amounts of strength it had. The cats stared, horrified and disbelieving, as it took a leap towards the thin bridge. The paws connected with the branch, it bent, and all creatures waited terrified for what was unavoidably to happen. The might weight of the creature snapped the bridge in clean two, plunging the huge body into the river below. With a massive splash, the great mottled body submerged beneath the waves, a final snarl frozen on it's muzzle.
Talon scrabbled onto the other side of the bridge where the rest of the cats were, breathing a sigh of relief as the bobcat got swept away behind her. --The mind is just a complicated machine 08:23, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering, who was bleeding heavily from her severe wounds, collapsed from her injuries, panting heavily. "Can someone..." She gasped, her voice nearly faltering. "Get some... some cobwebs? For Falconheart and Pebblefrost?" She said, still trying to think of the other questers over herself. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 18:25, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
The cats would stagger along before building camp a short ways away. They were too weak to go any further. Luckily, clumps of marigold, cobweb, and fennel grew nearby. The stronger cats were able to collect these, though unsure of the uses, they made some sort of poultice and slapped them onto the wounds with cobweb.(ya'll have a couple hours to rp healing if you want).
Falconheart's breathing slowed as she slept, a look of pain on her face. In her dream, the world was dark - darkness everywhere, coming, coming for her. She was blinded by it, and yet, she felt fur brush her side. "Easy, easy. You now I'll still be with you on this quest." The tom's gentle, soothing words eased Falconheart's pain, but a constant doubt still rang in her heart. Are they both dead? I could even learn how to LOVE 11:13, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
The cats would then sleep, hungry but exhausted. Blazefire and Stormstar did not return. /
Aureolering slathered more of the sticky pulp on her now-stubby tail. By the Place of No Stars, she cursed under her breath, it's like fire! Her other major wounds had been patched, and weren't burning quite as infernally as before. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 20:09, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar and BlazefireEdit
It took a while for the freezing water to wake Stormstar back up, and he quickly started to freak out, flailing in the chilly, fast-moving water. Terrified, he flailed faster and faster, unaware of Blazefire "tagging along for the ride".Stormstar 03:58, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire's side burned where she had hit the frigid river. The icy current dunked her under and over like a piece of driftwood while she struggled to get a grip on the riverbed. The water closed over her head and pounded in her ears. She couldn't breathe, she couldn't feel... the current tossed her up and she saw the sky, gulped in air, and down under again. Gryfflepuff 04:00, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
His legs, tail, and ears numb, Stormstar continued to scramble in the water, oblivious of his surroundings as the chilly water splashed into his blue orbs. Hissing in frustration, he kicked anything and everything that neared him, but his struggles eventually slowed as he started to give up, which was a rarity. However, StarClan had saved him, for rocks and dirt rubbed against his belly as he was washed ashore...somewhere.Stormstar 04:02, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire, struggling weakly, was washed ashore beside Stormstar. She lay limp for several moments before letting out a hacking cough. Water spewed from her mouth and onto the sandy shore. She lifted her head feebly and it swam. She then dropped it back with a groan. Gryfflepuff 04:05, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
"Oh...great...just who I want to be....a castaway with..." Stormstar managed his growl after coughing up plenty of water, sprawled out on the shore as he panted softly.Stormstar 04:08, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire, weak, fure matted with sand, struggled to her paws and sank down again. " No... got to get back... others!" Stupidly and almost as if she was not quite right in the head, Blazefire made a frantic attempt to re-enter the river. Gryfflepuff 04:10, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Groaning in annoyance, Stormstar slapped a paw down onto the molly's tail, his ears flattened. "Though I'd hate it if you drowned, you're only...it's not....it's no use...re-enter that river, and you're done for."Stormstar 04:11, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Her confounded feelings...! Anger, sadness, vexation... it was too much. " Let me go!" she croaked, turning around and smacking him in the muzzle with her paw. She promptly collapsed, letting out a half-sob-half-growl. " We need to get back. The bobcat... it could kill them!" Gryfflepuff 04:14, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
"Have confidence, you pessimist." Stormstar grumbled after taking in a deep breath, ignoring the slap to the face and half-dragging his body over to the she-cat. Without a warning, he grabbed her scruff and attempted to hault her away from the river.Stormstar 04:17, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire pushed him off and staggered up the bank. " We needa geback..." the she-cat tripped and fell with a moan. Dementedly, she turned around and began walking back the way she'd just come. "Geback..." Gryfflepuff 04:20, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Deciding that the best way to keep the molly from clambering back into the river was to lay on her, Stormstar stumbled before flopping forward, resting the upper half of his body on Blazefire. "Nu-uh....your gonna...wait with me...we're gonna get 'em killed...if we go back..."Stormstar 04:22, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
"That's what...I'm try'n to tell ya..." Stormstar grunted with a soft huff, laying where she had pushed him and closing his blue eyes. ...Wherever they are...We'll find them...alive, I hope...Stormstar 22:19, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
There was fighting spirit inside Blazefire, for sure. She got up, on shaky but determind legs. Her eyes flashed. She took a firm step forwards. And fell on her face. Gryfflepuff 22:21, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
By the time she got up, Blazefire realized Stormstar was unconscious. Great timing. With an irritated huff, she grabbed his scruff between her jaws and pulled hard, tugging Stormstar slowly up the bank. She needed to get them sheltered. Gryfflepuff 22:27, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire grunted with the effort, head swimming as he exerted herself. His weight caused her to slip and stumble, falling several times on her side. The wet sand clogged her long fur, crusting over her eyes and making her feel enclosed. Her teeth sizzled form having to pull him all this way, her legs were burning, her chest was burning, and the end of the bank was so far away. She kept pulling, pulling, pulling, pulling, pulling, focusing on the in out, in out of her breathing. In, out, in, out, in, out, in out... she chanted this until she reached the end of the bank, crumpling onto her side and gulping in air. Gryfflepuff 22:31, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
Gritting her teeth in determination, Blazefire stood up. She took another breath. The sky was beginning to darken slowly, and she needed shelter. Blazefire spotted a tangle of roots with a bush growing over them. It would be cramped, but it would do to hide Stormstar. She painfully lugged the tom under and went in search of better prey, and shelter. Gryfflepuff 22:37, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
(how many days shall they be seperated from the others?) The leader awoke, his head still spinning as he blinked open his blurry blue eyes. Where am I...? He was no longer touching the water, and was slowly feeling a little lost.Stormstar 17:19, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
(3 or 4? They didn't get washed away that far, they both just have bad injuries so it'll take them a while to heal and stuff. It's also not quite the end of the day yet, so I changed dawn). Blazefire shouldered into the bush and dropped in a ferret, which was all she could find. Seeing Stormstar awake, she hastily nudged it and wet moss towards him before ducking out and going to search for herbs. Gryfflepuff 17:23, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
(let's go with four, the longer, the better) (oh lar, not a ferret ;-;) Stormstar's eyes grew round as he made out the shape of a ferret, his blue eyes flooding with sorrow. "I'd rather starve than eat that," he commented before lapping at the moss, eventually resting his head dizzily on his paws.Stormstar 17:26, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire, of course, didn't hear his remark. Knowing her bit of herblore, she went searching for golderod. Finding the plant, she nipped a few stems and returned to the den. Gryfflepuff 17:33, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire applied the poultice to him, realizing that she hadn't brought enough for herself to share with him. The tabby was exhausted, wasn't Stormstar going to eat? Gryfflepuff 17:56, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar said not a word as the ScorchClan she-cat applied the poultice, but once she finished, he decided to mumble something: "....sorry 'bout what I said a few moons ago to you at the border."Stormstar 18:06, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire stared, blankly, trying to fight the warmth growing inside of her escaping into her expression. " Are you going to eat the- whatever it is?" she said, gesturing to the ferret. Her tone was devoid of emotion. Gryfflepuff 18:17, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
She sniffed it, looking slightly repulsed. " I think I'll try for fish instead..." the tabby said quietly, taking the carcass outside and burying it. Crouching by the river, and with sheer luck on her side, she came back with several small minnows, depositing half in front of Stormstar, and taking some for herself. The tabby was exhausted, she hadn't taken care of herself. After wolfing down the food, she curled up and began to drift off into sleep though it wasn't even sunset. "... I'm sorry too. It's just been... so hard. I've done terrible things..." she mumbled sleepily. Gryfflepuff 18:50, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
After eating his share, the leader frowned at his friend, but something suddenly felt....wrong, like something happened back at home. "We've all done bad things, Blazefire, it'll be ok, I promise....I won't let anything harm you again, my good friend." Stormstar rested his head on his paws.Stormstar 18:56, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
She sat upright again, green eyes dark and troubled. " You can't... do anything..." she choked, fighting back a sob. She would not cry. Crying would be giving up. " They died. I caused them do die! They were just there... I didn't even try and stop it... and now they're gone. It's all my fault!" her voice rose with every word. Gryfflepuff 19:06, December 5, 2015 (UTC)
"Blazefire," he was clearly ignored as her voice was raised. "Blazefire!!" Stormstar yelled as he put his paw on hers in efforts to comfort the ginger molly. "I know you, I know you wouldn't let someone die without a reason, whatever happened, it wasn't your fault. You didn't lead them into a trap as far as I'm aware, and you didn't attack them."Stormstar 04:35, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
Week 1 Day 4Edit
They would wake up later than usual, wounds stinging and bellies growling ravenously. There was still no sign of the other two.
Falconheart could only feel two things: hunger and pain. She groggily blinked open her eyes, hoping there would be something to help her burning wounds. Wonder if they're back... She was still feeling tired from the day before, but she didn't know if it was pain biting her or her hunger causing it. Are they even alive? Should we just...just head back? I could even learn how to LOVE 14:04, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud flattened the ear that wasn't coated in a thick layer of cobwebs. "We need to find them. We can't leave them behind. They'll likely have been taken off course... But Blazefire is smart," he reminded the other cats, taking back his previous statement. "She'll know to follow what the prophecy said; to follow the star," he recalled. He blinked apologetically, realizing he was kinda taking on a 'leaderly' additude... He stepped back and lowered his head, his shoulders hunched a bit. "Sorry. I kinda like to take charge when things get bad; guess it's because I'm able to think so logically under pressure," he whispered. (aww bby its ok shhh ily) — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 20:52, 12/6/2015
Aureolering touched Redcloud's side with what was left of her tail. "It's fine." She reassured him, her temper now dulled by pain and thirst. "We need a strong cat right now." “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 01:51, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
"It's okay..." Falconheart blinked a few times, shaking off the temptation to sleep. "I took on a little leader-ish role yesterday, you're not alone." She stood, yawning, then whisked her tail over Aureolering's back. I could even learn how to LOVE 02:16, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering simply stared at Falconheart's tail for a few silent moments. She said nothing about it, but a hint of longing made it's way into her eyes. Doesn't matter. She mumbled in her own mind. Think of it as a battle token... a little something to remember this by. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 22:14, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud let out a small purr. "Even still, we need to work together if this is going to work, at least until we find Stormstar," he meowed to Falconheart, glancing at Pebblefrost. "Though, Pebblestorm, maybe it's your job to step up; after all, you're a deputy, you might become leader," he said, flicking his unwounded ear. Upon Falconheart's grunt of pain, he quickly surveyed what was around them. "I know basic herbs, having grown up as a loner. If I can find marigold and more cobweb, I can get a good dressing on those wounds," he said, sniffing the she-cat's flank.
He turned and licked the base of his tail, gnawing shortly on a knot in his fur. "I do hope Stormstar and Blazefire are ok, though," he added, shaking out his fur. He took a glance at the rest of the questers; Sierra JoAnn, Falconheart, Aureolering, Talon, and Pebblefrost. "We should hunt," he decided, "After I patch you guys up; or show you how to do it yourselves." His stomach was growling pretty loudly; he thought he might be able to eat an entire pheasant by himself at this point, but he decided a thrush would do, for now, or any other bird. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 01:59, 12/8/2015
(btw, guys, that cats shouldn't go back and find them, it'd slow things down a lot. They can speculate about it fine, but in the end I'd like it if they just decided to continue. You all can decide where they go, I might hop in occasionally, but I'll still roleplay the 'bad guys'. Oh, you can delete these after you see it I guess).
Pebblefrost flicked an ear, turning his gaze to Redcloud. "I'm doing the best I can for us," He meowed, his voice slightly edged with irritation. He took a calm, long, deep breath, and sat down, his tail wrapped neatly around his paws. "For now, we will worry about finding Stormstar and Blazefire. But maybe.." He paused for a moment, remembering seeing how close the two were. They could be together...? sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 02:04, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
(flame, they hated each other a little while ago, why would he think they were close) "We need to keep moving," Falconheart grunted. "They'll catch up to us, but we've got to get back home as soon as possible." The tabby desperately wanted to be done with the quest and get back home. My precious kits, please be safe... I could even learn how to LOVE 02:23, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
"I agree with Falconheart," Redcloud meowed, nodding his head. "But before we do that, I'm patching you up," he said sternly, with an almost fatherly gleam in his eye, despite Falconheart being his age. He'd managed to find a few marigold leaves and some cobweb, so he chewed the leaves up and applied them on the she-cat's injuries, covering them with cobweb. "That's the best I can do," he said. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 02:42, 12/8/2015
Aureolering sighed in the shadows and let her head fall to her paws. Already, two of the questers had gone missing, and the she-cat couldn't live with herself if harm had come to Stormstar. Her wounds hadn't been patched by Redcloud for the day yet, but she hardly felt the pain. I just want this to be over. She thought to herself. I just hope StarClan knows what they're doing. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 03:34, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart chuckled without argument, memories returning of when her and Stormstar would just...talk. It had been a while since she'd done it, but now she kind of missed it. I wonder if I'll ever do that again. I could even learn how to LOVE 03:39, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering looked up at the sky. "If we're leaving," She told the other cats, "We'd better do it soon. It's almost sunhigh." She felt a flash of pain in her backside, and winced. "Redcloud, would you mind putting something on my tail? It hurts like fury. Please?" She asked in a lower voice. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 21:23, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud nodded. "Of course!" he said, chewing up a few more marigold leaves. "This will sting. This wound's pretty deep," he observed. He applied the poultice to Aureolering's tail, then covered in cobweb. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:16, 12/8/2015
Sierra JoAnn was curled away from the other cats. She hadn't been much to making "new friends" and Talon hadn't really spoken to her. Would she ever fit in? She aske dherself. A voice inside her head answered, No.— Ryewhisker 14:25, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
"We have to leave as soon as possible." Falconheart's eyes were clouded with memories. "Whatever this threat is, it could strike at any time...which means we've got to keep moving, or our Clans may all die." I could even learn how to LOVE 04:13, December 9, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn sighed knowing she needed to make friends. She stood heading over to Redcloud. "H-Hi I'm Sierra." She said softly flinching at how pathetic she sounded.— Ryewhisker 16:52, December 9, 2015 (UTC)
(I'm tempted to do something to move them forward, but I'm not going to do it without your approval, Blaze/Whiskers) Falconheart flicked her tail. "Then we should go." I could even learn how to LOVE 23:40, December 9, 2015 (UTC)
The cats would set off in the direction of the blue star. The ground was mercilessly devoid of grass and littered with natural debris that stabbed and hacked at pawpads. L
"Uuugh..." Falconheart groaned at the stabbing pain in her paws. "Keep moving..." She ignored her pain, pausing to kick away branches. Something loomed in the distance, far, far away...It was farther away than Falconheart had thought, several miles away. That'd be days worth of walking, and they still had to wait for Stormstar and Blazefire. I could even learn how to LOVE 00:16, December 10, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering had managed to avoid most of the debris, so her pads weren't nearly as tortured as Falconheart's. Oh, her wounds still stung, but the pain had been dulled by the walking and constant concentration on avoiding the unmerciful terrain. Aureolering turned her head back to look at the questing cats behind them. "Everyone, try keeping your paws as close to each other as possible, and when you're walking, put one right in front of the other. Try balancing on the tips of your claws, too, if you can." She said in an authoritative tone, hoping to encourage the group with some advice. "That'll make it less likely for you to step on anything. It's worked for me so far." “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 02:08, December 10, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost felt the pang of the debris swipe at his paws, and he shook them off with a quick jerk of his paws. Grunting, he continued to push forward. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 02:06, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Conversation did help pass time, but it didn't help cracked pads. Oh, and to make it worse, the sky decided to rain. Wet, sore, and miserable, the questers found meager shelter in an alcove of thickly leaved trees.
Blazefire and StormstarEdit
"Blazefire," he was clearly ignored as her voice was raised. "Blazefire!!" Stormstar yelled as he put his paw on hers in efforts to comfort the ginger molly. "I know you, I know you wouldn't let someone die without a reason, whatever happened, it wasn't your fault. You didn't lead them into a trap as far as I'm aware, and you didn't attack them."Stormstar 04:35, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
She bowed her head. " I- I can't control myself anymore. I feel like someone different. Knowing that... that they died because I didn't help. It is my fault, and when the Clan I love finds out, I'll be finished." Gryfflepuff 13:31, December 6, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar flicked his tail calmly, speaking in an alike voice, "Blazefire, once they find out who you really are, or find out who I know you as, they won't care. If you can't control yourself, it wasn't like you could help yourself anyways, you wouldn't have been able to do anything. You're an amazing gal, I'll help you through this, I promise. That's what friends are for, after all."Stormstar 03:12, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
Knowing... knowing that she was not alone in this world was comfort. Greater comfort than she could've gotten from any of her Clanmates. Stormstar knew her better than all of them: all they say was rogue-turned-warrior, a Clanmate, and perhaps a killer. Her tone suddenly jumped from being desperate to being dry and sarcastic. " So that's my miserable life. What about you?" Gryfflepuff 21:44, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
"My miserable life?" Noticing his friend's tone, he flicked his tail tip against her. "For one, my only friend is this weird sheep," Stormstar teased gently before rolling onto his back. "Well, my sisters hate my guts and won't let me near me niece and nephew, and both of my parents are dead. Everyone send to be dying around me, and in top of that, just about every kit is getting into big trouble, it's sad, having tho hold them back."Stormstar 01:24, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
She rolled her eyes, and twisted her head to lap at an itchy spot on her flank. However, she quickly drew back and wincing as a wound across her side stung her. When she turned her gaze back to Stormstar, her green gaze was soft yet still powerful. " You're just jealous," she said lightly, stalling as she comprehended his statement. "I- you told me about your sister before, didn't you? I thought it was just her being protective? And, well, I never knew my father, my mother doesn't really care about me or doesn't show it, and my half-sister is... somewhere. So I kind of get how you feel. Oh, kits are always causing trouble. Though holding them back must be a shame." Gryfflepuff 01:45, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar nodded. "Yeah, I did...she was, but our relationship's been very poor ever since that ScorchClan tom came into her life, after all, she broke the code." He frowned as he shifted, rolling back onto his stomach before resting his larger head on his blocky paws. "But yeah...I lost my brother too, Shadowpelt, he's been missing for a long time now. I-It's for the best, he caused nothing but trouble and was only trying to spill blood."Stormstar 04:01, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire let out a breath, trying to see beneath his words as to what he truly meant. Slowly, she spoke. " Sometimes... family is family, not matter what." The tabby leaned forwards and, after a moments hesitation, briefly rested her muzzle against his. " I-I understand." Gryfflepuff 04:11, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
She let out a soft sigh of content, eyelids beginning to lower. " I know it's morning, but... goodnight. We needa sleep if we're gonna go catch up later..." with a tremendous yawn, her head went limp and she feel asleep. (we can do a personal timeskip you and i whiskers. or they just sleep for 5 minutes bc they're cool that way). Gryfflepuff 23:50, December 8, 2015 (UTC)
"True..." With a small yaw, Stormstar fell asleep as well, with his head remaining on the molly's shoulder. He didn't really care, after all, they were friends, and he was really too lazy to move.Stormstar 05:25, December 9, 2015 (UTC)
When they awoke, Blazefire was momentarily started to find herself under a random bush with Stormstar's head on her shoulder. She stood up so quickly that she dislodged the head rather rudely, fur rising along her spine. Her heart thundered in her chest as she slid out her claws. "Where am- oh. Never mind." She said said matter-of-factly, sitting down again and beginning to smooth her rumpled fur. Gryfflepuff 23:26, December 9, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar grunted at the rude awakening as his head slammed onto the ground, groggily opening his ocean-blue eyes. "Irk...Well, I appreciated that awakening..." The muttered under his breath, stumbling to his paws only to grit his teeth. His body was greatly bruised due to his little experience in the river and the battle with the bobcat.Stormstar 01:59, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire blinked at him, confused, before her vision cleared. " Sorry," she said, not sounding sorry at all, and arching her spine. She yawned and then straightened, tail raising in excitement. " C'mon, let's go! We need to catch up... with the others..." she trailed off, souring quickly, and trying not to let her bad mood show. Gryfflepuff 02:04, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Shaking out his now-ragged pelt, Stormstar blinked at the ginger feline calmly before stepping forward, nodding at the forest. "We need some energy first, we best get a bite to eat..." After all, I can hear that tone in your voice.Stormstar 02:15, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
She knew he'd sensed her voice, so she tried to cover it up. "Sounds dandy, or how about I just eat you?" with a playful snarl, she gently pushing Stormstar before racing away, cursing softly as her long fur caught on a bramble. With dignity, she pulled away from it and sniffed the air. Gryfflepuff 02:19, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
"Because I'm too tough, and besides, sheep only eat grass," Stormstar replied quickly in a lighter tone, though truthfully, he wasn't feeling the whole "playfulness and happiness" thing either. He just wanted to find that darn new home, and return to his camp...he was starting to really worry about them. Deciding that movement would only get him (hopefully) closer to the other group, he trotted after Blazefire.Stormstar 02:21, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire forged ahead through the bushes, twisting her paw in a hole and falling onto her side. She groaned as she hit a sore wound, but gritted her teeth and sucked it up. The tabby looked at the hole through her pain, identifying it as rabbit. "There might be a rabbit down there, but as I'm in great agony, I can't tell..." Gryfflepuff 02:25, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar quickly ceased his loping before he nearly tripped over the fallen molly. Lowering himself down, he curiously sniffed the hole as well as her paw. "I don't think either of us can fit in there...your paw ok?"Stormstar 02:28, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
"No," she hissed in pain, quickly straightening herself up. " Okay, scratch that idea. We'll just eat some- aha!" she lunged out and managed to trap a mouse beneath her paw, killing it swiftly. " Yum," she said wryly. Gryfflepuff 02:30, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
" Okay... hurry, though," she said, casting a worried glance at the darkening sky. As he left, the tabby quickly devoured the mouse, delighting in the taste. She buried the remains and waited, tail tapping on the ground. Gryfflepuff 02:36, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar hurried off, flattening his ears and he worked his way through the undergrowth. He ceased his moving and went silent, tasting the air before detecting a squirrel. He spotted it, stalked it, and later caught it.Stormstar 21:36, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar flinched in surprise before twitching his tail tip. "Well, if you didn't have your little accident, we probably would've eaten that rabbit, and have been on our way by now."Stormstar 23:11, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
" I was joking, young leader," the tabby said lightly, nudging him on the shoulder. As she waited, she turned to lap at her shoulder and smooth down the rumpled fur. Gryfflepuff 23:21, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire walked beside the tom, carefully picking her way between outstretched undergrowth designated to trip her. She closed her eyes briefly, blissfully imagining a flat plain before reopening them. She didn't try and make conversation, the silence was fine with her. Gryfflepuff 23:38, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
As if sensing his discomfort, she looked up at the sky. The blue star was beginning to show. "I..." she began, not having admitted this to herself before. "I kind of don't want to find this place. I don't want to move." Gryfflepuff 23:50, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar nodded, dragging his paws as he walked, and the golden sun started to set. The pair followed the star for a few hours before deciding that they were still too exhuasted, and went to sleep.Stormstar 03:21, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Week 1, Day 5Edit
Sierra sniffed after getting no luck with talking with Redcloud. He hadn't even glanced her way. Sighing, Sierra joined Talon looking quite miserable. Her thin pelt was soaked and she was shivering terribly bad. Her tail dragged on the ground. To make it worse her pelt was caked with mud. "I'm exhausted." The Abyssinian told Talon her pale gaze on the ground as she did her best to curl up and stay warm.— Ryewhisker 08:31, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart growled as she got soaked by the trees above her. She was in a bad mood, studying the others with a fierce glare that she couldn't really help. Getting soaked by something always seemed to push her buttons, and clearly the trees had punched the wrong one. I could even learn how to LOVE 10:39, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(double post yes, but it's after the posts below this so) Falconheart swore she heard voices nearby. "I'll be back.." She stood and headed where she thought the voices were coming from. I could even learn how to LOVE 21:26, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Pebblefrost stretched out, surveying all of the journeying cats. Hopefully we can all find Stormstar and Blazefire soon... we've been searching for moons. sticks and stones may break my bones but words just might kill me. 21:34, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
The ground was turning marshy under Falconheart's feet. Without warning, one of her hind legs was stuck and refused to come free despite her tugging. In fact, it seemed to be dragging her backwards.
Falconheart struggled against the sand. "Urrgh...ugh..." She tried so hard, but it only made it go faster, which made fear erupt into her eyes. "Someone, anyone, help!" I could even learn how to LOVE 00:15, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering jumped to her paws in fear and rushed towards Falconheart's cry for help. "I'm coming, Falconheart!" She gasped in horror when she saw her friend sinking into the hungry earth. "Falconheart!" “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 00:21, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Like a hungry monster, the quicksand dragged her down. It had dragged one leg under, and was now straining every ounce of strength she had to keep herself above it... and alive
There was no time to waste. Aureolering had to think fast. I can't run over and get her... I'll get myself trapped here too. But maybe... She spotted a low, half-broken branch hanging from a nearby tree. As quickly as she could, she raced over to the torn limb and clenched her teeth around it. She tugged, dislodging it quickly. Aureolering dragged it over to the deadly pool, getting her paws as close as she could to it as possible without trapping herself. Pushing the long branch as far as she could, she mumbled, "Grab on, I'll pull you out!" through the bark. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 00:32, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering, with all the might and main she possessed, heaved the branch forward using only her teeth and claws. C'mon... C'mon... I won't let you drown... “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 00:48, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
The quicksand clung stubbornly to Falconheart, but gave way slightly, still sucking firmly on her tail and paws.
Aureolering pulled, watching as Falconheart slowly rose back to the surface and neared the solid ground. Oh, StarClan, it's working! "Hang on, Falconheart, you're almost out!" She mumbled. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 01:06, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering half-screamed, half-grunted as she tugged a final time, ultimately draining her energy, but thankfully removing Falconheart from the quicksand at the same time. She gasped, letting the branch fall from her teeth as she fell, exhausted, beside Falconheart. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 01:24, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart sighed in relief. "You saved my life..." Terror and fear made her shiver and the muck was all over her fur. "Let's find a river or something so I can wash this yucky stuff off." She stood and backed away so she could shake herself, graoning as it stuck to her fur. I could even learn how to LOVE 01:34, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra looked up as she watched Pebblefrost. None of the other clan cats had even talked to ehr. Did they not like that she'd actually come? Shrugging she curled back up.— Ryewhisker 18:31, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
For a few moments, Aureolering just stood, stunned. I saved someone's life? But when Falconheart urged her on, Aureolering nodded and followed the limping she-cat. She was muddy too, not quite as muddy as Falconheart, but enough to deserve some good scrubbing. “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 23:39, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
Lashing her tail, Falconheart limped in the direction of the scent of water. "There's something coming up." (should they find blaze and storm?) I could even learn how to LOVE 23:54, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire & StormstarEdit
Blazefire woke a bit afterwards, shaking out her fur and giving it a quick grooming. She gazed around bleary eyed for a bit, before deciding to go and do something productive. The she-cat had reopened some wounds, so she found some cobweb and applied to to herself, saving some for later in case Stormstar needed it. Gryfflepuff 03:44, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar later returned with a blackbird hanging in his jaws, setting the feathered creature down at Blazefire's paws. "That was all I could find, we'll have to share it."Stormstar 04:03, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(she sick?) "Cool, thanks," the dark tabby leader replied, shifting as he began to pluck the black feathers away. He was on the last one until it got stuck to his little nose, causing him to make a face.Stormstar 04:19, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(no, just hungry). Blazefire nearly chocked on her mouthful as she snorted, though quickly covering it up and hastily swallowing. " Toughen up, Stormrain. Those feathers are fierce warriors, you know." Gryfflepuff 14:23, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar swallowed the last bits of his share, flicking his tail. "Oh yes, be thankful, because they sure were merciless...could've finished me off, even you."Stormstar 17:58, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire nodded, shaking out her fur before before walking. "So," she said, checking the direction before turning her conversation back to Stormstar. "I haven't seen Aureolering before. Did she just join? Or was she always there and i never noticed?" Gryfflepuff 18:53, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
"You've probably never noticed her," Stormstar replied as he walked on, keeping his blue gaze on the horizon. "After all, you're always busy at the Gatherings watching me try to climb a tree, or rather, fall out of a tree."Stormstar 18:57, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
" Watching you fall out of a tree is certainly a spectacle," Blazefire retorted, leaping over a log and landing neatly on her paws. " I don't think those trees will ever be the same again." Gryfflepuff 19:06, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar hesitated as he neared the log, cautiously leaping over it before stumbling. Grunting softly, he replied, "you'd be bored out of your mind without me."Stormstar 19:07, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
She grinned wolfishly. " Oh, you have 'no idea how weird I am. When I was little, my best friend was a frog. That was before I ate him. Maybe I shouldn't have done that," she said seriously. Gryfflepuff 19:51, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire let out a playful growl and charged after him before her fur caught on a bush (again) and sent her tumbling into a tree. She hit it smack on the forehead and collapsed, seeing stars. Gryfflepuff 20:20, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire moaned and glowered up at him, staggered to her feet and promptly hitting the tree again. With great resolve, she stood upright and stared at him, cross-eyed. " I didn't know that one of your eyes was red," she said in a slurred tone. Gryfflepuff 20:41, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
"And I didn't know that you were this insane," Stormstar replied gently, motioning for the she-cat to lay down. "Lay down before you run into another tree and kill yourself."Stormstar 20:43, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire trotted after him, tail raised high in the air. She let out a triumphant meow shortly afterwards. " I picked up a scent! It-it's Falconheart and Aureolering's! They were here!" Gryfflepuff 21:02, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
His blue eyes immediately brightened as he too, had detected it. "Oh my gosh, Bl-Blazefire, this is great, we're on their trail!" In his excitement, he bounced around the ginger molly like a young kit, nuzzling her out of his joy.Stormstar 21:03, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(to speed things up, should they just find the others now or)She pushed him playfully in return, eyes bright. 18.104.22.168 21:47, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(lol, that's chill. i vote for together... or in very close proximity xd) Blazefire regained her footing and raced after him, relishing in the wind on her face. Gryfflepuff 23:40, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(Sweg) Stormstar snickered, continuing to sprint, enjoying the feeling of wind rippling through his thick pelt. However, the moment of feeling as free as ever was quickly ended as he slipped on some dew-soaked grass, the leader flipping onto his back.Stormstar 23:48, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
(WHICH NASTY CHILD VOTED NO FOR BLAZERAGE ON MY USERPAGE). Blazefire snickered and jumped right over him. She called back briefly: " You are the epitome of grace!" before rushing on. Gryfflepuff 23:52, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
"If I'm the epitome of grace," he began, leaping to his paws before dashing after the ginger feline. "Then you're the epitome of speed!" He raced past her, grinning in the process.Stormstar 00:35, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
"That was fun," Blazefire said nonchalantly, shaking out her long fur. She looked around her and gave a start, staring wide-eyed at something on the horizon. "What on earth is that?" she gestured with her tail towards and towering brown shape, a few fox-lengths away. (tis a horsie). Gryfflepuff 02:32, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
(if it was beamer, they'd probably be dead by now) Stormstar narrowed his eyes to make out the creature better. It was lengthy, and certainly looked powerful with strong legs, its muscles rippling as it took a step forward to lower its long neck to nibble at a few blades of green grass. "...Doesn't look very threatening, it's eating grass...And it reminds me of a sheep, like, it carries that hay-like scent." He then paused. "It looks kinda cool and fun. I want to sit on it."Stormstar 03:15, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
(lol. If it was Merlin, they'd have been sneezed on or something) Long fur fell across its neck as it lowered its majestic head. The eyes were brown and nonthreatening, but Blazefire's head snapped around in disbelief anyway. " Go ahead. Where would you like me to bury you, again?" Gryfflepuff 11:54, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
"Sorry bud, I'm not getting buried for a looong time, especially now that I'll be on top of the world!" Stormstar commented with a sly smirk over his shoulder before returning his gaze to the equine. With a smirk, he approached a wooden post, clambering onto it and waiting for the horse to near.Stormstar 21:37, December 14, 2015 (UTC)
The horse did near storm star, head still bent to graze. It snorted quietly, tail flicking away several flies taking liberties.
The horse didn't appear to care, or acknowledge Stormstar's prescence at all, for the matter. It shifted away a bit, near Blazefire who skipped aside to avoid the hooves.
Stormstar stood awkwardly on the horse's back, smirking at Blazefire as she scuttled away. "Told ya! What do you think my clan would say if i brought this back, huh?"Stormstar 03:03, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
Nearing the end of its patience, the horse decided to get rid of the thing clinging on to it's back. Was it like fleas? Did it have to nibble it? No, because the thing got on voluntarily. Well, so did fleas. This internal conflict eventually gave way to a decision. With a gently huff, the horse lowered itself onto the ground and shook off Stormstar.
The horse stood up and lowered its great head to look at Stormstar out of big, brown eyes. It let out a breath through its nostrils onto Stormstar, ruffling the tom's fur. Then, with a toss of its mane, the creature galloped away.
She rolled over to avoid him, still chuckling. Gazing at him out of mock severity, she said: "Behave yourself. I can be immature, you certainly can't. Hey, I wonder, who's older?" Gryfflepuff 03:31, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
"Probably you, elder," Stormstar snickered before turning and continuing tho trot after the scent trail. He was sure something was wrong with him, because he felt...odd.Stormstar 03:38, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
(why oh why did i have to pick the hardest topic for history...) She scrambled after him. "If I'm an elder, you must respect me. Once, there was this elder who kept the whole Clan running around like dead chickens for her needs. Her den was too cold, too warm, the kits were too loud... it was a nightmare. Still, she'd been a fierce warrior in he day." Gryfflepuff 03:43, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
"This be a smelly elder who eats kits, screams at adjectives, rots away in her hot den, and throws her dirt at passerbys." He summarized with an amused snort, concluding that this odd feeling was...good.Stormstar 03:46, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
She frowned slightly. " She was old, she deserved her respect. All of us respected her, except for my mother, but she doesn't respect anyone. When I get old... I'll be nasty. Quite nasty." Gryfflepuff 03:50, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
(Night...should we call it a day soon?) The silence was awkward, but the leader broke it with a slightly sarcastic purr. "Good tho know I'm not your friend, Blazefkame." He paused. "Shall we get a move on?"Stormstar 04:35, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
(yes, I'll do it when I get back from school). " Yes," Blazefire said, coughing a bit. She began to walk ahead, but then stopped. " I'm thinking we should make camp here. It's a nice area, and it's getting late." Gryfflepuff 11:50, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
Eventually, the two settled down. Leaf-fall chilly winds were beginning to blow, so they moved closer together to help keep warm. .
Week 1 Day 6Edit
They would awake cold, but not as miserable as before. Some cats decided to stay guard, while others went hunting.
Falconheart woke to the hardened muck on her tail. "Blech..." She remembered that they couldn't get all the mud off of her tail and groaned in response. I could even learn how to LOVE 23:22, December 16, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering blinked her swollen eyes open. She hadn't gotten a wink of sleep that night, and it showed. Something was bothering her... “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 00:11, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
(double post with approval from Blaze/Whiskers) Falconheart couldn't stand waiting any longer. "I'll go look for them..." With that, she headed into the undergrowth. I could even learn how to LOVE 02:58, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
Talon, who had since woken up, watched sleepily as Falconheart left. Sure, you'll find them, we've spent a while searching for them with no luck... --The mind is just a complicated machine 04:07, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
Sighing, Aureolering called out, "Hold your hedgehogs, Falconheart, I'll go with you." Running up to her, she added with a sly whisper, "Just in case you get stuck in any more mud." “I'll live INSIDE YOU forever!” —Edward Hyde 18:24, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
(moving this along...) Falconheart and Aureolering eventually emerged to a clearing, scenting the two nearby. "They're close, they're close!" The tabby couldn't stop herself from yipping loudly like a kit. I could even learn how to LOVE 21:46, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
(still a little confused about where to post so I'll post down here - fix this if needed) Falconheart emerged to a clearing, spotting Blazefire and Stormstar. "They're alive..." she breathed, heading over to them before poking them lightly with a paw. I could even learn how to LOVE 02:24, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar was too deep in his sleep to be awaken simply by some nudging, so he grunted in slight annoyance, pushing himself closer into Blazefire's fur like a frightened kit.Stormstar 02:31, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire's head shot up. She looked blankly at the two cats before her tail shot up and her eyes brightened, almost tripping over Stormstar in her haste. " F-falconheart! Aureolering!" friendship has lessened the haunted look in her eyes. Lost souls in reverie 04:13, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
"Nope, only found by us," Falconheart replied to Stormstar. Her green eyes were shining brightly and happiness deflected other feelings. "You both look..okay, I guess." I could even learn how to LOVE 11:16, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
The dark tabby flicked his tail. "Oh, where's the rest of the gang?" He then returned his gaze to Blazefire. "But why did you almost squish me? I was sleeping over-" He paused, remembering that he fell asleep against the ginger she-cat. "Oh, nevermind..."Stormstar 17:04, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
" We found them. How is everyone, did you guys get away from that thing okay?" the tabby said fretfully, but forgot her station for a while and butted Stormstar on the shoulder with her head. Lost souls in reverie 17:12, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
"Good, everyone's there, yes? No other issues while we were gone?" His blue eyes flashed with amusement as the ginger molly head-butted his shoulder, and he pushed her away with a paw. "Alright you oaf, I'll fight you later, or race you and smoke you again."Stormstar 17:16, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
" This is a serious mission," Blazefire said with a completely straight face, her green eyes stern. It took all of her willpower not to twitch her whiskers as she turned away from the leader. Lost souls in reverie 17:23, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
A soft snort sounded from Stormstar. "You sure are taking it seriously," he responded in a playfully sassy manner, passing Blazefire and giving her a small shove. "Have you guys eaten this morning?"Stormstar 17:24, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
"Lucky thing she was there, then," Blazefire said politely, privately feeling shocked as she realized she had no real friends in her Clan. In a jokingly confidential whisper, she leaned in to Falconheart and said loudly: " I saved Stormstar's sorry hide. He was out cold and I was bleeding, but I got herbs and prey. By the time his majesty awoke, he had full provisions ready for his healing." She obviously intended for her best friend to hear. Lost souls in reverie 03:56, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
Aureolering didn't find the story itself humorous, but the laughing hint in Blazefire's mew made it seem far funnier than it was. Aureolering let a small chuckle escape from between her teeth. Lost in the Darkness... 05:32, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart couldn't stop herself from giggling a little. The story then made her think of Griffinkit, which made her eyes cloud slightly. I hope you're okay, my little furball. I could even learn how to LOVE 11:00, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
The leader smirked back at Blazefire from over his shoulder. "Yes, but must I remind you that I was the one who convinced you that you weren't a fish? You nearly drowned yourself by trying to return to that river."Stormstar 20:22, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
" Oh, please, I tire of hearing your voice," the tabby said, turning to Aurolering and Falconheart as she walked. " So, have you seen any thing of our new home?" Lost souls in reverie 21:08, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
"I've been stuck listening to your yammering for days, don't tell me that you're tired of my voice." Stormstar replied before disappearing into the bracken to search for some breakfast.Stormstar 21:10, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart dug her claws into the ground. "Mostly just an open field of debris." She let one paw's claws slide back into their sheaths and raised that paw. I could even learn how to LOVE 21:19, December 20, 2015 (UTC)
Redcloud (who has totally been with them the entire time bc his rper totally didnt forget this quest was happening) lifted his head from his prey, licking his lips. "We do, but we'd best finish eating soon. We've been traveling for... Six sunrises?" He flicked his tail. "I want to get this quest over with so I can just... relax for more than a few hours," he sighed longingly. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:21, 12/21/2015
"Enough." Aureolering said simply. "Enough food. We had some extra, so it should be enough for you and Stormstar." She turned around and flicked what was left of her stub tail. "Let's go back; we need to get going as soon as possible." Lost in the Darkness... 04:43, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
"Let's go," Falconheart muttered. She wanted to get home and see her son. The brown tabby dug her claws into the ground, staring at the ground as to not let the cloud in her eyes show. I could even learn how to LOVE 21:11, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
Stormstar found the stash, dipping his head to Talon before picking up a piece of freshkill and settling down to eat it. He ate fast, aware that the group was itching to move on.Stormstar 19:18, December 23, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart, with a long sigh, imagined her son. Oh Griffinkit, please be safe... (yes, you miss him, but you can't see him until you're back) I could even learn how to LOVE 02:25, December 26, 2015 (UTC)
(just a heads up that i was given permission to rp Blazefire on occasion, or when she's needed) Stormstar finished his fill, while Blazefire did the same. Once finished, the pair returned to their fellow travelers. "Onward, we're ready now, unless anyone needs something before we head out."Stormstar 21:11, December 26, 2015 (UTC)
(alright, let's finally end this day...we can have them discover the land in the next day, seeing how inactive this is getting.) Stormstar nodded and began walking, keeping his gaze on the horizon. The group of felines walked till dusk, and eventually, their paws got sore, so they decided to pack it in for the night.Stormstar 02:41, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
(yeah, lemme deploy purple font). The cats settled down in a cave for the night. Somehow, they could sense that the end was close.
Blazefire & StormstarEdit
Stormstar was thankful for the slight warmth from his friend as she slept close to him. He craned his neck slightly to rest his head in her paws, snoozing away.Stormstar 02:12, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
(child, you can speed thing up a bit by getting Wasp back to camp to tell everyone how Blaze is a killer) Blazefire, still asleep, didn't move her paws and slumped forwards as he moved his head, letting out a snore. Lost souls in reverie 02:29, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
This section is closed, Blazefire and Stormstar have reunited with the group in the section above.
Week 1 Day 7Edit
Redcloud blinked open his blue-green eyes and stretched his legs a few minutes later, surveying the campsite. He didn't spot Stormstar, but his scent was very fresh, so he decided the tom hadn't gotten lost - again. He patiently awaited his return - having two cats missing before the group was awake seemed an unwise move. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 21:01, 12/29/2015
Falconheart shifted before slowly blinking away sleep. Letting out a small yawn, she arched her back in a stretch before straightening. Maybe I should go hunting.. The tabby could sense her instinct telling her to go, and she muttered to Redcloud, "I think I'll go hunting, if the others wake up, tell them that's where I'll be." With that, she headed away from the slumbering cats, desiring a good hunt. Try to be a RAINBOW in someone's cloud 21:09, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
Blazefire arched her spine as she woke and greeted Redcloud, swishing her tongue quickly over her long fur. The tabby had heard some strange noises during the night that sounded suspiciously like predators, and she wanted to make sure they weren't around. She left, sniffing around. The ground was full of long grass and annoying gnats, and there were no footprints. Blazefire was about to leave when she noticed that the ground ended a few lengths away, ending in a precipice. Curious, she approached, walking slowly as she neared the edge. When she reached the edge, she gasped. It was certainly beautiful... the sky was bright blue, and the ground below her appeared to be green. She was a long way up and couldn't see much, but a small blue smudge below resembled a lake. A lake... something clicked within her. Trembling, she looked up... and got the shock of her life. The blue star- the one they'd been following for one terrible moon- was right above the blue-smudge-lake. We- we did it!thrilled, she shot it one last glance before racing back to the others. Taking a few breaths to compose herself, she said in a trembling voice: "There's something you should see." Lost souls in reverie 21:58, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn had been quiet lately and her build had been thin as she hadn't eaten she'd felt weirdly sick quite a bit.— Ryewhisker 22:09, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
With frustration, she realized a couple members were out hunting. Unacceptable! They should've foreseen her bringing back this news! As she waited for their return, the tabby paced and lashed her tail. If she'd really found the promised land, what did that mean for them? What was in store for the questers, and for their Clans? Lost souls in reverie 22:22, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
Eventually, Stormstar managed to take down a skinny squirrel and a pitiful mouse. Overall, the prey in the area was...well, terrible, absolutely horrible. Things seemed sickly, even the trees, and the leader was positive that he could detect heavy scents of twolegs. As a result, he started to hurry back, only to run into a dark gray she-cat, nose-to-nose with her. She didn't seem very friendly at all, curling a lip and hissing at the leader. "Stranger! Who are you, and how dare you waltz into here and hunt?"
Being a leader, Stormstar was used to threatening situations, and kept his cool. His fur remained flat, and he revealed not a single emotion in his deep blue orbs as he spoke, "I am Stormstar, leader of FlameClan, a group of cats who happen to live far off. My friends and I are simply traveling through this area, we mean you no harm, and I apologize for trespassing in your territory." When he mentioned her territory, the gray molly was immediately confused.
"Territory...? This is no territory, this is no-man's land, it's nothing but a death-trap. Nothing survives here, only twolegs. I simply live here because I was chased off by some petty rogues."Stormstar 05:22, December 30, 2015 (UTC)
Falconheart pricked her ears as she swore she heard a voice nearby. "What's going on?" she muttered to herself before burying her raven and going in the direction of where she thought the voice was. Try to be a RAINBOW in someone's cloud 05:26, December 30, 2015 (UTC)
The dark tabby tom narrowed his eyes, growing very puzzled. But StarClan had promised them... "Good thing we're only passing through and now staying." But truthfully, Stormstar knew that they were at the promised land, as he had caught a faint whiff of a nearby lake, likely polluted by the twolegs. The gray feline paused.
"My, where are my manners? I'm Mist, by the way. If you need a guide, I'm here, just don't even think about chasing me off...actually, please do, I need to get out of this death trap."Stormstar 05:29, December 30, 2015 (UTC)
(kinda don't appreciate the fact that Blaze was ignored, she was going to show some of the group the land up close so they could form a togethered opinion that the land sucked). Lost souls in reverie 15:31, December 30, 2015 (UTC)
She put on a mocking look, only to mask the emotions within her. "Oh... let's see. Blue star over a lake, what does that mean again? Oh, nothing. Come one, this'll be the best nothing you'll ever see." Without waiting for a response, the tabby left, hoping her scent trail would lead them to her. She ran quick across the section and stopped at the precipitous cliff. (next time you rp, rp with her to save time). Lost souls in reverie 23:27, January 1, 2016 (UTC)
" I think..." she trailed off in awe, staring at the view which was beautiful in a spinning-down-sickeningly-and-you-could-fall-down-any-minute kind of way. After this whole moon of searching, they were here? " Reckon we should go down and take a look?" she asked TAlon, nodding to a gravelly path that seemed to lead down. Lost souls in reverie 00:25, January 2, 2016 (UTC)
Stormstar flinched in surprise, realizing that he had been away for quite some time. "If you don't mind, I need to return to my group." He dipped his head to Mist, turning away before pausing. "Actually...would you like to tag along? You know things around here, you could make sure we keep our noses out of trouble, besides..." He glanced over his shoulder at the dark gray molly. "You could join a clan and get away from this place." Mist hesitated, but slowly nodded her agreement.Stormstar 22:14, January 2, 2016 (UTC)
Blazefire would lead her group- the ones who hadn't met Mist- down the gravelly path. It cut paws, and the stench of dung would hit the cat's noses. It was gross and made them want to throw up. When the path ended, they stared at their... unimpressive home. It was terrible: dead grass littered with glass and other garbage. Rotting animal carcasses, all giving off the same foul stench. A massive, ominous Twoleg nest was constructed ahead. Ugly grey fumes rose from it and turned the sky an ugly brown color.
" I am not moving here." Blazefire said, stepping backwards and shaking her head. " I... you know what? I don't know what StarClan's intentions were, but this place will kill our Clans. Do you think, do you think," she rain a tongue over her jowls, "we should tell our Clans it was a mistake, or something? I mean, no offense, but Amber and Ivy weren't too keen on this idea anyway. Stormstar's leader, so it'll be a piece of cake for her. Pebblefrost is deputy, and Redcloud and I are- well- smooth talkers." Lost souls in reverie 22:50, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
"It has to be a mistake. This, if it's right, only means one thing in my mind - the Clans are destined to end." Redcloud's fur was standing on end, and his blue-green eyes were narrowed and watering as if he'd gotten something in them. "We'll convince them this is no good. And Stormstar, you have a nice long chat with StarCl-... Hold on. Do we know for sure the cats that gave us this quest were StarClan, and not the Dark Forest?" he asked, his fur bristling more. — jem 🎶 never trust the pantaloon 🎶 22:59, 01/4/2016
His dark words sent a shiver down her spine. Doomed... the Dark Forest... " Don't talk like that. We will protect our Clans from whatever's coming. And, well, Tipcloud interpreted the dream, didn't she? And since when has the Dark Forest sent prophecies? Can they even do that?" Lost souls in reverie 23:02, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
She shook out her fur. " Yeah. Yeah, that's right. Dark Forest or StarClan, I don't care, I will not bring ScorchClan here. So, do you all agree that we call off the quest and go home? We'll protect our Clanmates from whatever's coming, I'm sure of it." The steely look in her green eyes left no doubt that she believed in her own words. Lost souls in reverie 23:31, January 5, 2016 (UTC)
Talon turned to Stormstar, expecting he would be the cat who would make the final decicision as if they were going to ignore this. --The mind is just a complicated machine 00:03, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
Falconheart's disgust covered her instinct. "I won't be raising my kits here! I'd much rather do it in somewhere we can clean up and make better than this piece of crowfood!" Try to be a RAINBOW in someone's cloud 03:29, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
Sierra JoAnn lay on her side now barely breathing. She hadn't eaten in quite a while and knew her death was coming. The Abyssinian molly curled up well did her best to curl up into a tight ball, but ended up looking like she was twitching. The brown ticked molly closed her eyes waiting for death to come.— Ryewhisker 16:47, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
Stormstar narrowed his eyes, Mist sitting a few fox-lengths away from the clan cats awkwardly. "My mother is definitely a StarClan cat. She's given true prophecies before, as well as my nine lives. And everyone else received the message, not just me, so don't go pointing out anyone," the leader commented, briskly turning his aqua gaze to the murky lake and the unhealthy looking sky. "I absolutely refuse to move FlameClan here, I'd rather die over and over than move my Clan here and make them suffer...StarClan must've taken us to the wrong land. I think it's decided, then."Stormstar 23:52, January 7, 2016 (UTC)
The cats reached the agreement and left for the journey home. As they departed for their respective territories, they were determined to protect their Clans. Together, they would hold against what was coming.
