Your Silence, My WeaknessRumplestiltskin sat in the red, thickly cushioned chair in the sitting room that had always been one of his favorites. His old cane leaned against the arm, no longer needed but having no other place to go. He stared at nothing in particular, lost in thought.Your Silence, My Weakness3 years ago in Romance More Like This
The sound of footsteps on the hardwood floor did next to nothing to disturb him, and only half a thought was used to note that the newcomer was barefooted. He continued to think of far-off things, his fingers absentmindedly drawing patterns on the arm of the chair.
Whoever had walked into the sitting room came to stand right behind him, and the familiar scent of roses and sugar came to him. He drifted further away with the calming smell and barely felt the light touch of fingers on his shoulder. Only when those fingers drifted from his shoulder to his cheek and lifted his head to look up did he finally lose track of his thoughts and see her.
Belle was smiling, her blue eyes sparkling in the light streaming in from the open widows.

I stepped out of my den confidently, to show my Tribe that we were strong and everything would be fine. I closed my eyes and let the morning sunlight wash over me. When I opened them, I stretched, and walked toward Vinetail, my closest friend, I nearly tripped over Lionkit as he ran around camp. I didn't have the heart to scold him, he was currently the only kit, and everyone in the Tribe took great care of him.
"Lilyspirit, would you like to see how Firepaw's training is going?" Jumpkick asked, though, Firepaw wasn't necessarily his apprentice, she was a Fighter apprentice, and all cats in that category took part in her training so that she could blame no one cat.
"I would love to, Snowpaw too, perhaps?" I offered, he looked slightly doubtful, but nodded and dipped his head in gratitude before going back to where Vixentooth and Boldclaw were arguing.
I smiled, the pair always argued, though they were mates and made a remarkable pair in battle. Firepaw was one of
Warriors: Dusk Ch. 1A tom with no home, or what cats call them, a loner. The gray cat rose to his feet, stretching out in the morning sun. He was on a big striding hill with tall grass reaching above his chin. Mountains rose far away into the sky with clouds encircling the tops. The roars of the monsters on the thunderpath were close by.The bush he hid in was very leafy with edible berries on it. As he took a bite of one of the berries, a loud voice came to his ears.Warriors: Dusk Ch. 12 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Drake? Where are you Drake. I'd know that scent anywhere." The voice was too familiar to him. The gray tom came out of the bush and saw who was calling him.
Henry. "Drake, there you are. Long time no see. What'cha doin' here?" Henry was a old orange tabby tom who was a good friend of Drake's mother. He had visited them a few times before Drake became a loner. His naive blue eyes stared at Drake until he came running over.
"Hey Henry. I'm just traveling. What are you doing here?" Drake sat and prodded his chest out so Henry didn't think he ne

"Luckpaw! Come on, Luckpaw, we don't have all morning! The dew is melting!" I was gently pummeled repeatedly until I snapped my head up.
"What!?" I hissed.
"Come on, we have to go!" Flamepaw purred, I narrowed my eyes and followed him out of the den. There we met the pretty ginger she-cat and the nice calico she-cat, the ones who had stood up for me.
"Welcome to your first day of training Luckpaw!" the nice calico said her eyes looked at me blankly; a pretty white and ginger she-cat stepped from the Warrior den, followed by a pure white tom.
"Let me introduce ourselves," The pretty ginger mewed. "I'm Flowerpetal, this is Fernpush," She nodded toward the calico, who stared at me blankly, as if I wasn't there, "this is Rosescent," The pretty white with ginger spots she-cat nodded, "and this is Whitenose."

I came here with the long she-cat, with ginger fur, Vinetail, she seemed nice enough. Now Lilyspirit was trying to hide her surprise and discomfort.
"Now, uh, please follow me, I'll announce your arrival, I'm glad you decided to come." She padded over to a large tree, and jumped onto the lowest branch, and yowled loudly.
"Cats of Forest's Tribe join me, for I have news to tell those with Chosen Paths." She said, cats began milling about and looking at her.
"My Tribe, I would like you to welcome a new cat." She mewed, and looked down at me, every cat glared at me, and their whispers roared in my ears.
"She's no more than a kit!"
"Where did she come from?"
"What's with those eyes?"
"She'd never be a proper Fighter with those weak legs!"

You placed your hand inside the hat and felt around for a moment. Something soft brushed across your fingers. After lifting it out of the hat, you noticed it was a ribbon very similar to the one Aerith had in her hair. “Um, is this yours Aerith?”
“Nope, it's mine.” Zack practically launched off the couch and ran up to you. “I figured all girls like ribbons, so I put that in there as a gift to whomever picked it.” He had a huge grin on his face. “This is going to be awesome.”

Jugo stood and walked over to you, taking the bunny from your hands. “I did. I don't really own anything, so I just, called over a rabbit.” He blushed and sent the bunny on it's way.

I watched, amused, as the young cats paced around anxiously, we were still in the Gathering Place, the leaders had decided to stay for the ceremony tonight, and then for the gathering, before leaving for their homes, I tried to postpone the ceremony, telling them to wait for Luckpaw to get up, but, they refused, and told me that the apprentices deserved it.
The older cats were still nervous, being around so many cats from different Tribes, but, this was best, to show that all Tribes appreciated what the young cats had done. After a while, we had even sent for the Mollies and their kits, who came with the Elders, who were all glad for the company and stories, I shivered briefly, I was also glad for the mass of cats below, their warmth was a blessing, it was near winter, and every day the Wise Ones complained of several cramps or pains that foretold snow.

After a very long time of waiting, it's finally your turn to pick an item. You walked up to stand next to Jiraiya and placed your hand in the bucket. You twirled your hand around inside and got tangled in something. It was a necklace with a firefly at the center. “Oh, this is really pretty. Who's item is this?”
“It's mine. I'm glad you like it. You can keep it if you'd like, I don't exactly wear jewelry.” Shino walked over to you from the corner. You couldn't tell if he was happy to have been picked or not due to his monotone voice and the fact that most of his body was covered.
“Thank you. That's really sweet of you.” You smiled happily and tried to place the necklace around your neck.
Shino quickly came to help you. “Here, let me help you.”

Warriors: Dusk PrologueAbove, the black sky was as dark as a raven's feathers. Stars, along with the moon, were absent from the sky. The trees were sapped of any life, leaving only long gray branches. The ground was muddy and the woods were covered in mist. Nothing could be seen far away nor up close, making it impossible to find a way out of the forest.Warriors: Dusk Prologue2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Alone in the dark, a cat wandered his way through the forest, surveying his surroundings. His gray fur was bristled, and his eyes were a deep orange. He knew of the place he was. The Dark Forest. No ordinary cat would've been thrown into this place. Only the warrior cats, who he heard of from his mother, were supposed to inhabit this forest if they had done evil in their life, but why was he here? He wasn't dead yet. He was only 8 moons old, so it must be a nightmare. But was it real?
Suddenly, he unsheathed his claws, looking towards a large group of trees. Something was making noise behind them. He crouched slowly, sniffing for any kind of scent, but the o

There was chaos down below, a furious fit of screeches and yowls of pain as a battle waged on. The battle had begun in a blur of shadows, and continued in horrifying ferocity as a cat looked on helplessly, wincing at her tribe’s calls of pain, she flattened her ears to the sound of fear from a kit, and breathed shallowly, to avoid the scent of fear from overwhelming her.
“Lilyspirit, please, help me-” The large cat pricked her ears and raced toward her deputy, pushing the attacker away, the wounds in her fur glittered malignantly in the small moonlight. She gestured for her Healer to come quickly, once she was sure that her deputy was okay, she turned to face the attacker, but there was nothing but shadows.
“What have we done to deserve this?” She spared a glance at the night sky, the stars were few tonight, that seemed like an omen. She didn’t have to worry though, a dark cat landed on her back, but he was little more than an apprentice, an

After a short while of spinning around, he came to a stop, his finger pointing directly at you. “You, whoever you are, come up here.
Shigure's eyes still closed, you walked up to stand beside him. “Are you going to open your eyes? I cant get to the items with you standing there.”
“Oh, of course.” Shigure turned around and retrieved the pot full of items, a smile lighting up his face. “Here you are.”
Almost as soon as your hand was inside, a strange metallic, jingling noise started. “That sounds really familiar.” You found the item responsible for the sound. It was a bronze cow bell. “This can't belong to who I think it does.”

“What's that face about? I thought you liked vegetables.” Yuki slowly walked over to where you and Shigure were standing, a very apathetic look covering his rather pretty face.

I woke during the night to find Crowfeather sitting just inside our den, watching the rain fall outside. A chill had swept into the once-warm tiny cavern, and I fluffed my fur up against it, suspecting it might have been because he was no longer beside me. Bits of rain splashed from the ground onto his paws, soaking the fur above his paw pads. A crack of thunder, almost like a lion's roar, caused the fur on the back of his spine to lift.
I lifted my head, and that was enough motion for him to look back at me, warmth returning to his eyes, which had been glazed and distant. "Crowfeather? What's wrong?"
He started to stand, then shifted back into a sit again, wrapping his tail tightly around his front legs. "I couldn't sleep," he said. "I kept thinking about what it's going to be like when we make our own clan." His eyes flashed with passion.
A thorn twisted in my belly. The thought of clans only made me think about what I'd left behindmy sister, Squirrelflight, my mother and

A cream-colored tabby cat swiftly crept through the forest. It was the beginning of new-leaf and the leaves were just beginning to appear. New plants started to grow and the water swiftly ran down the creek nearby.
The cat stopped and gazed at the night sky. The spirits of her ancestors shone down upon her, watching wistfully, and waiting for her next move.
