Jay glanced outside his den before turning back to his herb sorting.
Jay shuffled his paws as he felt an unnatural feeling rise through his throat. Coughing once, he remained his stance, his eyes focused on the herb stack, but his mind swirling with unnatural feelings, not for anyone but Sun. She appeared in his mind and again felt sweat down his legs. What was he thinking, having feelings for Sun? Maybe it didn't matter, and they could love in peace...
Shrugging his feelings off, Jay continued without any more problems, pausing only to retreive a meal. "Hello, Sun," he called to her mildly.
"Sure," the she-cat called. Jay settled down to eat his meal, asking, "How are you feeling today?"
Smoke nodded, and padded over to the camp entrance, waiting for Jasper. ---- Shadow placed her catches on the pile, before padding into the Soldiers' den. --The mind is just a complicated machine 18:13, March 2, 2016 (UTC)
Sun blinked up, a bit surprised that the Healer was attempting to speak with her. Surely he was fed up with her attitude? "Fine," she responded calmly before proceeding to groom.Stormstar 21:22, March 2, 2016 (UTC)
"I'm guessing your injuries have healed?" Jay glanced in her direction.
"I'm open in case you need me." Jay felt a self-conscious shove in his stomach, sighing as he worked to ease his feelings.
"Injuries, sickness, healer stuff."
Jay shrugged. "Advice, possibly." Jasper, meanwhile, followed Smoke.
The healer flinched. "No? Where'd you get that conclusion?"
The tom scooted away, flattening his ears. "...Well, okay then.." He promptly pushed off the ground to collect herbs for his supplies. Whatever, she won't like me back..
Fish was out hunting, flattening himself to the grass, a rabbit's scent trail laying tantalizingly ahead. SPQR 22:58, June 15, 2016 (UTC)
The healer bit off herbs quietly, lost in his own thoughts. I mean, she's not gonna like me back anyway, I shouldn't get my hopes up.. Distracted, the tom banged into a tree.
Creekshine's ears flicked as he heard a banging noise, but he didn't move from his position.
Crimson finally rolled and rose to her paws once more, shaking dust from her pelt and glaring at the healer.---- Sun twitched her tail tip as she glowered at the tom. "Are you having, like, issues with your head right now?"Stormstar 01:16, June 17, 2016 (UTC)
The tom flattened his ears in embarrassment. "Lost in my own thoughts.."
The healer rolled his eyes, muttering quietly under his breath.
Sun snorted and turned her back on the tom, eyeing him darkly before rising to her paws and leaving.---- Crimson looked around for her Leader, flicking her tail impatiently.Stormstar 02:44, June 23, 2016 (UTC)
Fish looked up and spotted River. He purred, flicking his tail in greeting. Want the ball 22:03, June 23, 2016 (UTC)
" What's up?" the tom said casually. Want the ball 22:12, June 23, 2016 (UTC)
" Same here," Fish said, shuffling his paws. " Want to go for a walk?" Want the ball 02:30, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
Smoke stretched. The soldier was growing old, and a couple of gray flecks had started to appear around the black-and-ginger cat's muzzle. ---- Shadow was bored. --The mind is just a complicated machine 23:02, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
(we gotta do smoke/jasper) Jasper approached Smoke, sitting down beside him. "Yo." -- Creekshine pricked his ears as his deputy called his name. "Hmm?"
"I'm okay," the soldier replied. -- "Oh...Okay." The leader shrugged. -- Jay walked back into the camp, calmed and quiet.
"Er, I don't know," the tabby replied, flicking his tail. -- Jay immediately glanced behind him, nerves suddenly giving him a flood of anxiety. Father's not really okay, and we really need some new, impressionable soldiers...Seems like Smoke and Jasper are getting close, maybe she'll have kits..
What about me and Sun? The thought struck the healer before he could stop it. Grunting, the tom walked towards his crush, his tailtip flicking as wind brushed his fur. He didn't turn towards her, nor did he bother to brush her flank with his tail, despite his wanting to do so.
Sun opened a single eye as she heard silent pawsteps, and saw Jay heading her way. She twitched her whiskers, wondering if he needed something again. She also silently wondered if he'd even talk to her again, after her brutal words.Stormstar 18:43, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
The tom remembered his mentor- no, his mother's dying words. His tail lashed and his eyes closed tightly, the memory burned into his mind. He muttered something quietly and sighed.
The tom stopped himself from jumping. "Nothing."
The molly cast her healer a bemused glance, silently confirming that there was in fact something wrong with the tom. "Uh...okay, you were just walking over to me and randomly muttered something...so I thought you had something to say."Stormstar 19:03, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
He didn't respond at first. "..It's just a troubling fact that there's nothing I can do right now. The tribe's not in the best shape right now." A pang of distress struck the tom. Even though I'm not supposed to have a love interest.
(I think they are allowed to have love interests?) Sun rolled onto her belly, and cast him yet another puzzled glance. "Really? Everything seems fine to me. Sure, there's a lack of kits and queens, but we have no troubles. There aren't any rogues threatening us, or terrible illnesses."Stormstar 19:16, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
(dunno, it was never clarified) "Still, it bugs me that I can't do anything to provide something." The tom sighed. And I want to love you, I want you to like me, I want to see our kits. The tom's battle against his thoughts was slowly failing.
If cats could blush, Jay would've - the tom glanced back at her. "I-It does, I guess..." I want to be with you, I don't want to have to lose this battle, I don't want these to escape. Eventually, he knew they would - he couldn't hold it in much longer.
"Yeaaah. It's unfortunate that my mother died," she lied, looking away to gaze at the camp's exit and look at the sky. "-...because it would be nice to have more siblings."Stormstar 19:34, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
"I wonder, if my parents had been alive...would I have siblings...?" The tabby healer felt yet another twinge in his stomach. Sun, Sun, oh my goodness my love interest...you're going to find out everything soon..
"Well, I know one thing for sure." Sun shifted from where she lay, making a bit of a grumpy face. "I sometimes see how Creekshine looks at my Aunt...and I don't really like it." He better keep his paws off of my mom.Stormstar 19:49, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
"He's probably gotten over it - I haven't seen him show interest in anyone recently." The healer let his tail catch in the faint breeze. "Sometimes I see him walk quietly, and all he really does is look at the scenery."
"Hmmm." Sun scratched at her ear quietly, not making another nosie until she was finished, resting her hind leg on the ground firmly. "...now a walk sounds good. I'll be back."Stormstar 20:03, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
"Alright." The tom let the wind blow in his fur, taking a deep breath. Ah, the mountains.
Rising to her paws, the soldier drifted out of camp, but confused herself. She had the slightest desire for companionship on this walk, but pushed the urge out of her mind and kept walking.Stormstar 20:07, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
Jasper waited beside Smoke. The she-cat rested her tail on his flank, unaware of it for a moment before realizing what she'd done. "O-Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!"
Maybe it'd be best to take him anyways, so he could grab his green things and flowers. Grumbling slightly under her breath, Sun poked her head back into camp. "Jay? Would you like to come with me, so you could get your...herbs, or whatever they're called?"Stormstar 20:15, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
The tom pricked his ears. "Hm? Sure...?" Much as he had plenty of herbs, he did know that his catmint was a little old and was slowly rotting. "I've got to refresh the catmint stock anyway." He headed towards the soldier, flicking his tail.
The ticked tabby simply nodded and turned back out of camp, walking off slowly and waiting for the healer to follow. She had no idea what catmint was, but hey, apparently they needed it.Stormstar 20:22, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
He headed out, unconcerned about much, and led his companion to a patch of catmint, his jaws closing around the stems.
The tom ripped the stems from the plant, the sweet scent entering his nose. "Well, that's one way to get an herb," he muttered through the leaves.
(small timeskip for plot references: jasper/smoke spawn is happening yay) A few moons later, Jasper laid on a rock, her tail flicking. She and Smoke had finally become mates, and she was the happiest she'd been. She stared at the sky in silence, thinking silently. Wait...what's this.. "Smoke?" she called after a moment of realization. "There's something I-I have to tell you..." She shifted and noted quietly to allow Jay to check on her - this was the first time there'd been kits for several moons, she knew.
(we need to get our plot rolling so we can kill off our oldies, stormver) Sun sunned herself just outside of camp with Crimson, the two mollies closing their eyes with a soft sigh. Crimson's muzzle was slightly splashed with silver now.Stormstar 22:57, August 27, 2016 (UTC)
Creekshine sat near his son, who glanced at Jasper. The gray tabby tom looked concerned over his father and the queen, but wondered what his love interest and her family were doing. His father flicked his tail and he followed the leader towards the entrance of camp. -- Jasper glanced at her mate lovingly. "Smoke, you're gonna be father...!"
The concern in Jay's eyes faded, and he replaced it with the brightest look he could manage. "There's finally some kits coming." -- "Why wouldn't I be serious?" the dark ginger soldier murmured softly. "I'd never fake something like this."
Jay's gaze darkened slightly, but Creekshine merely twitched an ear. The healer's father thought about many things that bugged him, including his former interest in his deputy's sister. But I think Crimson..she might have just been better...
-- Jasper purred and slithered down the rock towards him, her eyes warm.
"No," the healer answered casually. "All we're doing is staring at the horizon."
Jasper sat near the entrance of camp, the queen's belly swollen with kits. She flicked her tail, planning to take it easy for a while - she knew she was very close to kitting. However, something caught her gaze after a few moments, and she inched closer to the edge of the stone she sat on to get a better view.
She nearly jumped off the rock on instinct as she caught sight of Topaz, her claws gripping the rock. Oh, no.. She stood and took a few careful steps down the stone, increasing her pace as she got closer to the two toms.
...At last, Chattahoochee felt amazing. He was so close to killing his son, who now stood panting before him. "Topaz. Get ready." He slunk closer, his claws unsheathed, his eyes a crisp, dark amber. "Get ready to die." He lifted his paw and slashed out, his son screaming in pain and scrambling up and away.
Jasper pricked her ears, and Topaz caught her gaze. She felt such an urge to help him, as no cat deserved to die the way it appeared he was going to. She launched herself forward despite her body shape, and followed behind a Chattahoochee.
Topaz caught sight of a spot of uneven ground, and he kicked down dramatically, breaking the rock away. You, you queen, please help me! He managed over the leap with no issues, Jasper barely managing to do the same.
...However, the queen was starting to feel stabbing pain in her stomach, and she screamed as a spasm ran through her. She could just barely see Chattahoochee scrabble for a grip, his eyes narrowing. "Topaz!" he oscreamed. "You may have been spared now, but just you wait!" With that, he lost his grip, falling to his doom.
Jasper didn't move or get up as Topaz approached her. The tom didn't know what to do - he could only sit and fear as the queen screamed again.
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 01:47, September 11, 2016 (UTC) Jasper couldn't stand the pain, and her screams nearly made Topaz flinch off the cliff. She could only endure so much, and it was becoming painfully tough. Smoke...Smoke, Jay, anyone... She shivered aggressively as her first kit was born - a dark brown-gray she-cat. The queen could only observe her daughter for a moment, as she felt more spasms. The newborn kit snuggled near her, despite her screams.
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 01:55, September 11, 2016 (UTC) Jasper yowled her pain, the pain only increasing as she kitted her second and final kit - a dark cream tabby she-cat with a pink nose. It's done... She opened her eyes and glanced at her daughters. Welcome to the world, you two.
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 04:12, September 11, 2016 (UTC) Topaz excused himself from the queen, his thoughts spinning. Jasper, meanwhile, started licking her daughters' fur dry.
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 19:06, September 11, 2016 (UTC) Jasper blinked her eyes tiredly, the queen wrapping her tail around her kits. Smoky, who was still unnamed but would be called Smoky anyway, yawned.
it's time to start defying gravity, my love 19:29, September 11, 2016 (UTC) "You-ve -" Smoke's voice was cut off as he set eyes on his daughters. "...Great Tribe of Endless Hunting, they're beautiful..." ---- Shadow swaggered around camp boredly. --
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 01:00, September 14, 2016 (UTC) Jasper purred weakly. "...This one looks so similar to both of us." She flicked her tail at the brown-gray she-kit. "What about...Smoky Quartz in Rocky Cliff? Like a combination of both of our names?" Smoky, even though she was still technically unnamed, mewed.
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 05:59, September 14, 2016 (UTC) "You can decide if you wish," the Queen murmured quietly. Smoky, who finally had a name, paused in her suckling to tap her unnamed sister away. She mewed quietly, and Jasper purred.
it's time to start defying gravity, my love 09:54, September 14, 2016 (UTC) While the kit ignored Smoky and continued to tap her, Smoke From Blazing Fire paused. "...Umm, okay." Looking at his daughter, he considered it, before thinking of a name. "...She seems like a Rose... how about Rose Petals Falling in Wind?" --
Light paced around, boasting about a rabbit she had caught, while Bramble ignored her, focusing on counting the quills of a feather. Light slapped her in the head with her tail. "Are you even listening to me?" Bramble gave her a hard look through amber eyes, then went back to her feather, starting over with her counting. ~Patchfeather~ 03:15, September 17, 2016 (UTC)
Pyre rested on his belly, watching as Crimson and Sun interacted. The deputy was getting older and older, now walking with a slight limp, with her muzzle faintly tinged with silver. Sun, meanwhile, was still very young and full of life, frolicking around her aunt.Stormstar 14:22, September 17, 2016 (UTC)
Soon after, Smoke and his mate started to return to camp with their kits. Smoke was carrying Rose, who was constantly squirming, in his jaws. --
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 19:59, September 17, 2016 (UTC) Smoky lashed out at Jasper, who nearly growled but held her tongue. Jay immediately spotted the queen and widened his eyes. "Jasper! You..kitted."
Light, though, for some reason, began ranting about rain and stuff even though Bramble was paying zero attention. She was almost finished counting the quills of the feather... just a few more. Light ripped the feather out of her paws all of a sudden. "What is your deal with this thing?" she asked, holding the feather too high for Bramble to reach. ~Patchfeather~ 01:32, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
"Quit, Sun," Crimson waved her paw to remove her daughter, but the young molly simply giggled. "Awww, what's wrong, auntie? Too fast for you?"---- Pyre, meanwhile, rolled on his back with a soft huff. He thought about the past, even though he hadn't been around then....he had learned from the older folk that Crow had actually been a member of his tribe before leaving for the Falling Stars.Stormstar 01:35, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
Bramble stared at the feather. "Can I have it back?" she asked, leaping to try and catch it, but Light only held it up higher. "Tell me what your deal with it is then," Light hissed. "Or I'll eat it." Bramble flattened her ears, eyes dark. "You wouldn't." ~Patchfeather~ 01:40, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
(-pokes time- let's get the riskchild going) Smoky, who was now two moons old, batted at a centipeede, the brown-gray kit's tail lashing as she leaped at it, watching it fly away and hit th all dramatically. She poked it once more, flattening her ears as she saw it wasn't moving. She huffed quietly and rolled her eyes, glancing around for something else to play with.
it's time to start defying gravity, my love 20:56, September 23, 2016 (UTC) (yesss let's do a dare) Rose's gaz constantly flicked to the camp entrance. The cream she-kit wasn't really paying attention to her sister at that current moment, as she, watching the soldiers, was starting to get some... ideas. (>;D) --
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 20:59, September 23, 2016 (UTC) Smoky, the risk-taker she was going to be, climbed onto a rock, trying to grab another bug she saw on the wall. Crouching, she leaped to smack it off the wall, landing on her side and wincing, but saw that she was victorious. She didn't know what it was...maybe a cockroach? She didn't know.
it's time to start defying gravity, my love 21:10, September 23, 2016 (UTC) Smoke eyed his daughter on the rock. She'd better be careful up there... 'course, he didn't want her to get injured. ---- Rose blinked, seeing Smoky on the rock. Huh. Smoky can do cooler stuff than that. She shuffled her paws, eyeing up the Soldiers again. Oooh, I have an idea. --
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 21:16, September 23, 2016 (UTC) Smoky immediately jumped up and leaped to kill the cockroach. Jasper called her kit's name. "Smoky." The kit ignored her. "Smoky." Still ignoring her. "Smoky Quartz in Rocky Cliff, get over here before you get yourself hurt!" The kit glanced back at her mother, calling, "Sorry, Mom, but I have no belief in pain."
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 03:10, September 24, 2016 (UTC) Jasper huffed - the queen had had enough of Smoky's attitude. She paused for a moment and took a breath, sighing and placing the issue behind her for now. Smoky, watching with satisfaction as her mother resigned her opinion, scrambled back onto the rock to bat yet another cockroach.
Smoky, having continuously been risking her life in various situations, had been made a to-be, alongside her sister - she'd been hoping for her father, as her mother wouldn't ever let her do anything fun. Grinning, she nudged Rose. "Time for some more! We need to really expand our truth-or-dare type game to include even more dares!" -- Jay, meanwhile, rolled his eyes and watched the to-be leap around. Careful, Smoky. I'm not going to be gracious to you if you happen to twist your paw rolling down a hill.
it's time to start defying gravity, my love 17:15, November 26, 2016 (UTC) Rose rolled her eyes. "'Course, now that we're to-bes, there's a lot more stuff I can make you do," the cream she-cat mewed. --
Bramble tried to focus on hunting. Her eyes were locked on the tiny brown tail of the little creature... she was so close. She took careful pawsteps forward, paused, then braced herself, ready to spring.
"Oh, Bramble! Bramble, you won't believe it!"
At that the mouse was gone before Bramble even blinked. She sighed. She cared about her sister but... so... annoying... "What is it, Star?" she asked, as her smoky black sister poked her head out of a bush. "Starlight, you mean," Star said, wrinkling her nose, offended.
"Anyway, you know that tom I like, really like?" she asked, eyes glowing. Bramble looked blank. "Was it the one from last week, or this moon, or today?" she asked, rolling her eyes. Starlight didn't notice the annoyance in Bramble's tone. "Today! You know I've had a crush on him forever! Well guess what? He looked at me! He really did. He loves me, he totally does. We're going to become mates!" Starlight did a little dance of excitement.
Bramble flicked an ear. By look, I think she means he looked at her in terror. Or was looking over her head."That's great, Star," Starlight's eyes flashed. "It's Starlight."
War. That was what rested on the horizon, from what Crimson had heard. The graying russet ticked she-cat stood just outside of camp, glaring at the setting sun as if it was the cause of all the madness. ScorchClan and FlameClan, apparently, were waging war with one and other over kidnapped cats...at least that was what the rumors told her. But now, Crimson worried about what the fate of her tribe would be.Stormstar 03:02, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Fish walked in, stopping to dip his head to the deputy. " I've been listening, m'am, to some of the rogues. They say Stormstar is going to war with ScorchClan because, allegedly, his daughter was stolen. It's going to be really, really bad. FlameClan is royally ticked off." #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 03:05, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Crimson flicked her slowly-graying tail in acknowledgement to the approaching tomcat. "Aye...but FlameClan has aided us in times of need, and we have aided them. We need to help them out, and perhaps save them from a bloody war."Stormstar 03:09, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Fish looked dubious, the normally optimistic tom creasing his face into a frown. " My life span hasn't seen FlameClan's need, but I am sure they are allies. I have limited knowledge of the Clans, but... I thought ScorchClan and FlameClan were at peace? There are rumors that a child of Stormstar's offered themselves as some sort of sacrifice." #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 03:12, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Nodding slowly, the deputy kept her gaze glued to the horizon. "That's right. And if their peace treaty is to disappear...than that's a signal of war, of a lack of trust. Trust is the most important element in all relationships, whether its between cats or between Clans."Stormstar 03:14, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Fish nodded slowly, then dropped his head. " Are we so certain we want to get involved in a war of such a large scale? We are relatively small... ScorchClan could decimate us." #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 03:18, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
"FlameClan would be on our side," Crimson began with a slow nod, "and to top it off, there's no promising we'd go into war. All that needs to be done is to find these missing cats, yes? Or find who is behind the kidnapping for real?"Stormstar 03:20, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Fish blinked, tilting his head to one side. " Missing cats? As in, plural? And what do you mean' behind them for real', that someone else the daughter to make them go to war? What cat in their right minds would do that!" #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 03:22, February 12, 2017 (UTC)
Rose had become a Soldier... a rather immature one, too. Oh dear. ---- Smoke was old: the graying tom sat outside the Soldiers' den. ---- Shadow hunted outside of camp. --
i've always wondered why we don't need feathers to fly 04:06, February 12, 2017 (UTC) Bramble paced around outside the warriors den, looking troubled. She heard talk of a war between FlameClan and ScorchClan, and how her tribe may be involved at some point. I'm not ready for battle. I'll fail the tribe. I'll be the first cat to die too.
Fish continued to stare. " You think someone else orchestrated this? Who on earth would do that?" #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 23:44, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
"Someone who wanted them both out of their hair," Crimson pointed out with a minior flick of her tail. "We'll have to send down a patrol to investigate, to find out what really happened."Stormstar 23:46, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
River padded into the camp, she dropped the prey she carried and padded to sit alone. 'Something bad is going to happen soon..' she thought, her eyes narrowed. Blue b e y o n d d i m e n t i o n s 23:50, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
Fish looked a bit silly, staring with his mouth hanging open. " But who would- fine. I can lead one- I'll take River with me, and maybe one more? We've gotta move fast." #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 23:52, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
The she-cat perked her ears as she heard her name. She padded over, dipping her head politely. "I heard my name. what's up?" She asked, tilting her head. Blue b e y o n d d i m e n t i o n s 00:02, February 17, 2017 (UTC)
Bramble had overheard the two cats talking and was now listening with interested eyes, not knowing if it counted as evesdropping or not. "I could come," she blurted, excitement fizzing in her paws.
Fish turned to both she-cats. " We think something's odd about the kidnappings- we want to go investiage. Would you be up to it?" #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 18:34, March 5, 2017 (UTC)
Bramble nodded quickly. "Yes, of course." Would she be able to keep her cool on the patrol? What if they had to fight something, what if she couldn't bring herself to do it?
Fish nudged River affectionately on the cheek before turning to the other cats. " Let's go now. I'll lead the patrol, you all come with me. We'll report back to Crimson later," he said, heading out and flicking his tail for the others to follow. -Blaze
"Oh come on, its not that big of a deal!" Moonlight exasperatedly told her older brother. The black and white tom narrowed his eyes sharply at the young molly before speaking. "Moonlight you were nearly snatched by a hawk again. That's the second time this week." He told her lashing his bi-colored tail angrily. The two continued to argue over this, Moonlight stating that she was allowed to have fun and explaining that dangers were gonna happen. Thunder, of course, refused to listen.
Blossom walked into camping, flicking her ears towards the familiar sound of her best friend and his little sister arguing. The calico molly sighed and shook her head. When would the two ever get along? (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 14:38, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Pyre seated himself away from the bustling activity, hearing whispers of potential war, and spying on the Clans. He didn't really understand what all the huffing was about; did they need to poke their noses into FlameClan's business? It seemed pointless in his mind, he never really saw FlameClan lending the tribe a paw. It was always the tribe coming to their rescue. The somali tom shifted in his spot, growing bored.
The aging deputy watched the young pair leave, twitching her whiskers before turning away. Would that ever happen to her daughter? She heard of her son having a son of his own, the new leader of The Falling Stars. Crimson felt proud, although she had not a soul she could brag to. Of course, she could babble away to Sun, but not another cat knew of her secret...and she planned to keep it that way.Stormstar 21:59, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
Fish led his patrol out, nose held close to the ground. " Let's head down to the FlameClan border. See if we pick up any suspicious scents there." #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 23:02, March 22, 2017 (UTC)
"Oh for cripe's sake, Thunder!" The pale ginger molly argued back. "Just leave it be, the bird didn't get me, I'm fine. I can defend for myself you know?" She shoots at him, causing the tom to grow even more angry. He lashed his bi-colored tail before he sighed and glared at her angrily. "Moonlight, you could have gotten hurt!" He told her in a hushed voice, a hint of frustration in his voice.
Blossom wrinkled her nose as she watched them argue before she decided she'd go talk to someone else. The calico soldier pushed past a few cats towards to where her nest was. Either talking or a nap was in order. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 14:21, March 23, 2017 (UTC)
Pyre rolled onto his side, washing his paws slowly before observing camp. He was always a bit...suspicious when it came to Sun. She seemed extremely close to her aunt, when compared to her lack of extreme sadness at the death of her mother and father. But who was he to judge? Perhaps Sun was just one for letting things go.Stormstar 15:02, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
(it's time to move this forward; fyi all) Creekshine decided to gather his patrol together. "Alright. We've discussed this long enough. FlameClan's in need, from what we're hearing, so we're going to figure out what's up. Help them out, do whatever they need, stuff like that." He paused to catch his breath; he was getting pretty old, and knew he'd end up dying soon enough. "I'll lead one. Crimson can lead another - and we may split for a third as well. Volunteers?"
Fish's patrol never happened because the wiki died, so he raised his tail. " I volunteer!" #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 17:25, January 7, 2018 (UTC)
Neither of those things actually happened because the wiki died again, this time unintentionally. Creekshine, meanwhile, was getting too old and had been slowly dying since a cough spread through Smoky and Rose, eventually skipping its way to Creekshine. Jay, nervously, snuck out to hunt... for something oddly specific. It's better to put him out of his misery than to let him suffer. -- Jasper saw Jay head out, and, with a side glance at her leader, followed him. "Jay!" --
(gonna just do this now bc I'm done waiting - bye, creekshine) "I'm going to find something for Creekshine, Jasper. I can't guartee he'll be okay." The ginger she-cat gave him a look of shock. "There is nothing we can do, Jasper. He is suffering now - I'm going to put him out of his misery." Jasper's eyes were wide with shock, surprise, and a little bit of anger - but she settled in a moment, nodding sadly.
Jay left on his way to find the yew berries, and spotted some quickly. There... I'm sorry, Father. He left with the berries wrapped in a leaf and trotted quickly back towards his home. Creekshine... I'm sorry. Smoky gave him a look as he entered, but Jasper tapped her before she could do anything.
Jay, meanwhile, nudged the yew berries toward Creekshine as he stared at his father with pain in his eyes. "Jay. My son. I'm sorry I couldn't guide you all for longer. There is a storm coming... and you must guide them. You should ask Crimson if she wishes to take my place - and if not, you guide them." His gaze went sad and almost regretfully, he licked up the berries. Jay couldn't bear to leave him, and he watched his father slow and stop regretfully.
The healer poked his head out of the den and called out, "Creekshine's dead!" --
(im just kinda speeding things along) Fish eventually led his patrol, consisting of a bunch of other ToEV members (whoever wants to be a part of this can be). They went down to the FlameClan border and began investigating, asking FlameClan cats what they had heard. All the cats told the same story- Ashbreeze's betrothal had gone wrong, and she had instead been kidnapped by ScorchClan to be used as a bargaining piece. The members of Ashbreeze's family had furiously described how ScorchClan had the audacity to pretend Ashbreeze wasn't with them. They seemed to be too angry to ask the important question... why hadn't ScorchClan made any demands?
Suspicious, the Tribe cats went to the ScorchClan border to investigate. There, they spoke to a few friendly ScorchClan cats, who insisted their Clan had nothing to do with Ashbreeze. They were, however, suspiciously dodgy about questions about Alderstar.
This was very surprising to the ScorchClan cats- not everything fit together. So they started asking around and found their answers in a young rogue named Helios, who had been sneaking around ScorchClan territory for a few days. Although clearly rough and wild, he was intimidated by the number of Tribe cats. " I heard rumors," he said, " that Alderstar's gone missing."
Clearly, something else was at play here. " Who," Fish asked, "would make such an effort to do this? No rogues would have the desire to do something like this to the Clans. What group would want to see FlameClan and ScorchClan tear each other apart?"
The answer came almost immediately. DarkClan. #ohwhatabeautifulmorning 23:45, September 30, 2018 (UTC)
Jasper, from beside Fish's side, nodded. "I doubt the loners would make any effort to capture a Clan leader and a queen. Last I checked they didn't care." -- Jay, after burying his father, approached the group. "Shall we go confront them ourselves? There's no telling what FlameClan and ScorchClan will do to each other if they're allowed to brawl." Despite the obvious sadness in his gaze, he knew he had to remain resilient. I'm the cat he'd probably trust the most, besides Crimson of course. His eyes clouded further as he thought for a moment. But if I die, my friends will not only be leaderless, but healerless. --
Fish nodded. His eyes narrowed as he glanced into the heavy forest that marked DarkClan's territory. " I think we need to act now before FlameClan and ScorchClan go to war. FlameClan has been our ally for years- it's time we do them a favor." The ginger tom squared his shoulders as he faced DarkClan. " Shall we?" --- blaze
Jasper nodded, then called over her shoulder to Smoky. "We're going somewhere, hurry up." Smoky trotted up to her mother. "You're going to DarkClan?" -- Jay nodded, then pulled Smoky to the side. "Be serious, okay? You need to be helpful - help your mother and everyone else, or I'll come get you." --
The ruddy figure, slowly flecking with silver from age, faced the outside world, with her back towards the inside of camp. Sun approached slowly and curiously, the abyssinian's ears perked curiously before she hesitated. She regarded Crimson as her mother silently, so that no others could hear her name. Their relationship was still a secret to the Clan, as it should be. "Aunt" was all they saw Crimson as, and it would remain that way until the end of time, or until they chose to break the news themselves. They were yet to find a perfect time to do so.
"You've been silent," Sun decided to persist, shuffling as she sat down, pulling her paws closer to her slender foreign frame. She observed her aging mother, likely one of the eldest cats around. Her coat lacked that attractive shine it once had, bleaching itself into a ticked silver and starting to clump. Her frame was much thinner, her bones barely visible beneath that thick coat of hers. "Is everything ok? Anything I can do?" Sun asked desperately, daring herself to inch a little closer.Stormstar 02:15, October 3, 2018 (UTC)
Smoky didn't flinch at Jay's threat, and instead shrugged him off. "...Like I'm scared of you, Jay. Even if you're 'leader' right now." The healer shook his head. "We must see what Crimson decides. If she retires... then I guess yes, I am your leader." -- Jasper sighed at her daughter's comment. "Show some respect, Smoky." The brown-gray she-cat rolled her eyes, while her mother merely shook her head. She took a glance over her shoulder at Crimson and murmured, "When should we leave?" -- it's time to start defying gravity, my love 22:52, October 3, 2018 (UTC)
