Home is a Sheet of Ice part 3Sherlock BBC Fanfic
The ice wasn't empty for long. The younger skaters were getting onto the ice, plus a few more adults. Molly knew a few of them by name, but not well enough to say anything beyond a simple hello every week.
The local figure skating club, the Silver Rose Figure Skating Club (the SRFSC) wasn't an overly competitive club. Molly had been to rinks where the club's competitive nature turned skater against skater, but that wasn't the case with SRFSC. That meant that there weren't as many high-level skaters as there could be, but it also meant the skaters were more supportive of each other and more relaxed about competitions. It reminded Molly of the Fear Valley club.
Molly skated a warm-up lap around the rink, feeling the frosty air rush past her and cause her hair, pulled back into its customary ponytail, to wave like a flag behind her. After the lap she turned to assess the amount of traffic on the ice. There were a few younger kids and adults who cou

Tigerclaw slipped quietly into Bluestar's den, his paws making no noise on the sandy floor. Yowls and screeches pierced the air outside. The blue-gray leader was battling a large white tom with jet black paws. Tigerclaw dragged the cat off of his leader, and hissed softly in his ear, Go rejoin the fight, Blackfoot. I'll kill her. The former ShadowClan deputy gave a short, barely detectable nod, then fled the den with a yowl of pain. Tigerclaw turned to face Bluestar. He snorted, Fighting skills a little rusty, Bluestar? I could help you with that, you know. He taunted her. Bluestar, however, was barely paying his tone of voice any mind. She mewed distractly, We'll worry about that later, Tigerclaw. The Clan needs us now. Tigerclaw hissed in a low, soft voice, No. The Clan needs me He unsheathed his claws, and let out a low snarl.
If Ashfur had lived... Ashfur walked alongside the river. He was ready. It was almost time for the gathering. His lips spread in a smile. Yes, he was ready. He would tell Firestar and everyone else what that backstabbing traitor had been hiding from them for so long. And then, Squirrelflight would feel the pain. Oh yes. The pain would hit her in the chest, as if she had run into a brick wall. Then she would know. She would know the pain he had felt each and every day. Brambleclaw would hate her. Firestar would want nothing to do with her. Leafpool would be so disapointed. And then Firestar would kick her out of the clan. Ah yes, Ashfur would savour that moment.If Ashfur had lived...5 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This

Phantom of the Opera's grief The year was 1919, and the cold winds of winter whirled around the figure as he made his way through the trees. He was the Phantom of the Opera, and it was far too risky to be seen here, in the graveyard by the Opera Populaire. Someone might recognize him, remember him for all the crimes he had made and lives he had stolen. Regret filled him as he thought of it, of the times he had killed. He had been selfish and self-pitying then. He had been on an unending quest to win her love.Phantom of the Opera's grief4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Even the thought of her name sent agony through the Phantom's heart. He had watched over her on and off throughout the years, but watching her living her days in bliss with her husband Raoul, and her children, it became too hard for him, and he had left. It had been nearly twenty years since he had last returned to this place. The only reason he came here now was to pay his respects for those he had killed. Joseph
A Misty Flame part 17 Mistyfoot took a deep breath, then mewed, "I know exactly what we need to do." Fireheart looked at her with fear in his eyes. "What?" Mistyfoot looked straight into his leaf-green eyes, and said in a dead-serious voice, "I'm going to join ThunderClan." Graystripe and Fireheart gaped at her, shock in their eyes. Fireheart spoke first. "Mistyfoot, are you serious?" The gray she-cat nodded. "I've never been more serious in my life." Graystripe's voice sounded from behind Mistyfoot. "Are you sure that's what you want? Changing Clans is hard. No cat knows that better than I. You'll have to leave your friends, your family, and your honor behind. You'll have to work tirelessly to prove your loyalty. If you so much as look at a cat from your old Clan, it will be seen as treason." Graystripe's amber eyes were miserable as he spoke.A Misty Flame part 174 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Mistyfoot nodded. "I understand. I'm willing to go through that for you Fireheart." She pressed against him and purred, "
Fireheart's Betrayal part 9 They walked all day to get to Violet's home. Barley still seemed unsure about getting his sister involved, but Ravenpaw had finally managed to convince him by reminding him that Violet had twolegs for protection. Now the black-and-white loner was sniffing the air, and Ravenpaw guessed he was trying to remember which best was Violet's. Finally, he nodded at one nest. "That one." Ravenpaw nodded, then raced towards the fence, Barley hard on his heels. The black loner leaped onto the fence, looking down into the garden below. A pretty ginger she-cat with a pale purple collar was laying on the grass, her eyes closed and her mouth curled in a smile of contentment. Barley leaped onto the fence beside Ravenpaw. The black-and-white loner looked down at the she-cat with a tender look in his eyes. "That's her." He whispered. "That's my sister."Fireheart's Betrayal part 94 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The Lion King III Part 1 It was dawn, and barely light enough to see, yet Kovu was wide awake. He paced nervously in front of the den. Simba purred, amused. You know Rafiki will never let you in there. It was true. As soon as Kiaras labor had begun, Rafiki had closed off the entrance and drove off anyone, including Kovu and Simba, who tried to enter. Kiara needs peace and quiet! Rafiki kept saying. Kovu looked at Simba, anxiety written all over his face. But what if something happens to her? What if she dies and Im not there? What if- Simba cut him off Relax Kovu. Kiara is fine! And having you hovering around her is certainly not going to help! However stern Simbas voice was, amusement flickered in his eyes. Kovu kept pacing until the sun had come out from behind the trees.

His eyes widened with astonishement. "Barley? Is that you, son?" Barley nodded, and mewed, "Hello Father." The tom touched noses with his son, and then gave him a lick on the head. "I thought I'd never see you again." The tom mewed hoarsely, and Barley let out a rusty purr.Fireheart's Betrayal part 134 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Ravenpaw studied the strange tom. He was a pale ginger tom, and he looked almost exactly like Violet, except he was a slightly paler shade of orange than his daughter, and he had a distinctive white streak on his chest. His eyes, however, were a green so pale, they were almost gray. As the tom turned from Barley, he caught sight of his daughter. He looked shocked. "Violet?!?" The she-cat nodded, looking very happy. The two cats embraced, and the tom whispered. "I thought you were dead. I heard what your brothers did to you..." Violet b

It was Brackenpaw.
Fireheart felt grief tug at his heart. Brackenpaw's body was torn and bloody. His eyes were glazed over with fear and hatred, and his lips were curled in a wretched snarl. Fireheart felt the ground beneath him. He looked up at Tigerclaw. Who did this? He croaked. Tigerclaw looked at him steadily. We found him near a badger's den. Apparently, no one was keeping an eye on him he glared at Fireheart and Graystripe as he spoke and he thought that he could take on the badger himself! A screech cut through the air. BRACKENPAW! Cinderpaw limped as fast as she could to her brother's side. She took a look at him, her horror-filled eyes wide with distress. Then she threw herself at her
Fireheart's Betrayal part 11 First, Violet led them to a twoleg nest with a large garden. "This is where Fuzzy and Lady live." She leaped up onto the fence and down into the garden below, Ravenpaw and Barley right behind her. One cat, a pretty tortoishell she-cat with one green eye and one blue eye and a yellow collar, was sitting under a tree, licking her paw. She looked up as Violet, Ravenpaw, and Barley approached. "Hey Violet. Who're your friends?" Violet flicked her tail towards each tom as she mewed, "This is my brother Barley, the one I mentioned before, and this is his friend Ravenpaw. Guys, this my friend Lady." The tortoishell dipped her head in greeting. "Hello Barley. Violet has told me much about you." Violet mewed, "Lady, can you go get Fuzzy for us? We have something to ask you two." Lady nodded, then padded into her Twoleg nest through a small entrance, much like the one Violet had used. "What is that thing?" Ravenpaw asked. Violet replied, "It's called a cat flap. Twolegs pFireheart's Betrayal part 114 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The Lion King III part 4 Nafasi stared after the hyenas for a while. Finally, he turned to face Simba. You know those hyenas? Simba nodded grimly. Shenzi, Banzi, and Ed worked for Scar. He sent them to kill me more then once. He frowned. I never saw Arufu, however. Kiara padded up to her father, and spoke grimly. From the way they spoke, they seem to assume that you are still the king. You'll be their main target. Nala pressed herself against her mate. Kovu growled, We'll keep guards posted around Pride Rock at all times. You're not to leave Pride Rock without an escort or two. Simba cocked an eybrow. Is that an order Kovu? Kovu nodded, his face hard. It's for your own safety, Simba. Simba looked ready to argue, but finally rolled his eyes and laughed. Have it your way, Kovu.

The Lion King III part 5 Nafasi stared at Kimya, and remembered. I remember that. He said softly. The injured lioness scrambled to her paws. She backed away from him, limping slightly on her hind leg. Nafasi said softly, Hey, it's alright. I'm not gonna hurt you. Kimya looked at him with fear in her eye. She said softly, I'm sorry for trespassing, but the hyenas were chasing me, and I had no choice but to- Maliki cut her off. Wait a minute. You say that hyenas were chasing you? Kimya nodded. I was looking for somewhere to sleep for the day, when I saw five hyenas hiding in the shadows. They charged at me, so I ran. They chased me into the water, and when the crocodiles came, they ran off, laughing. Then the crocodiles attacked me. She shuddered. They chased me from that direction.

Fireheart's Betrayal part 12 The next morning, Ravenpaw awoke to see a fluffy gray face inches away from his. Fuzz mewed cheerfully, "Good morning!" Starlted, Ravenpaw scrambled backwards. "What in the name of StarClan?" He sputtered. Barley stirred beside him. He looked at the bewildered look on Ravenpaw's face, then at Fuzz's look of innocent confusion. He rolled his eyes and mewed, "Good morning Fuzz." The confusion melted from Fuzz's face, to be replaced with its usual cheerfulness. "Good morning Justbarley!" Violet looked up and mewed, "Fuzz, how many times do I have to tell you? His name is Barley, not Justbarley." Fuzz shruuged. "If you say so, Violet." Then he looked back at Barley. "So what brings you here, Barley?" The black-and-white loner sat up and began to tell his tale, starting with a simple version of his life in BloodClan and ending with his discovery of the barn. After he reached that part of the tale, Ravenpaw took over, explaining once more about Clan life anFireheart's Betrayal part 124 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Mistyfoot looked defiantly at Silverstream. You have nothing against me on this. She hissed. Fireheart looked up at Graystripe. Graystripe, look Graystripe still looked astonished. You .. you took a mate from another Clan! Fireheart nodded uncomfortably. Graystripe . Please dont tell anyone! Graystripes shcok turned into anger. You think I would tell on you?

Gasps of shock rang through the Clan. Leopardfur bowed her head, and mewed to Tigerclaw, "Bluestar was a wise and powerful leader, and RiverClan will mourn her loss along with ThunderClan." Her eyes, while clouded with grief for the "brave" ThunderClan leader, were sharp with shrewd intelligence, and they didn't blink as she gazed into Tigerclaw's eyes. The dark tabby was impressed. Even while helping her allies, she was still measuring their strength, searching for weak points. Always prepared. She continued, "RiverClan wishes you well in your leadership, but we must leave now. Crookedstar will wonder what has become of us." She bowed her head to Tigerclaw shortly, and then signaled her Clanmates to follow her. Tigerclaw was almost sorry to see the she-cat go.
Tigerclaw turned to the rouges. He pretended to look Blackfoot up and down, measuring him shortly. Then he mewed slowly, "Blackfoot, ThunderClan mourns your loss. Howeve
Fireheart's Betrayl part 7 Ravenpaw sat on the roof of the barn late on a rainy night, overlooking the fields where the cows and horses were grazing. He felt somewhat anxious, though for the life of him he couldn't explain why. He felt as thought something would happen soon, something bad.Fireheart's Betrayl part 74 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Suddenly, a voice sounded from behind him. "Ravenpaw? What in the name of StarClan are you doing awake?" Ravenpaw turned his head to see his best friend, Barley, balancing on the roof behind him. He shook his head and mewed, "I can't sleep." Barley tipped his head in question. "Why not?" Ravenpaw sighed, and pushed his worries aside. "It's nothing. I'll be in in just a minute."
A few minutes later, Ravenpaw was curled up in his soft hay den. He lay there for a while, trying to push his anxious thoughts out of his mind. Then he finally managed to frist off into sleep. He dreamed that he was in the forest near the barn, where ThunderClan made its home. He wa
Fireheart's Betrayal part 10 Fireheart was in a dark forest, with familiar scents swirling around him. Scents of cats who had trusted him. "Graystripe! Bluestar!" He wailed, their scents taunting him. "It was for the good of the Clan, you know it was!" He could smell them all, all the cats he had wronged. Sandstorm, who trusted and loved him. Bluestar, who thought he was her most loyal warrior. Graystripe, who had believed Fireheart was his best friend. Ravenpaw, who had told Fireheart his darkest secret. Redtail, who's murderer went unpunished. Spottedleaf, who had loved him beyond death. Spottedleaf... Fireheart screeched into the wailing wind, "I did the right thing!

A Misty Flame part 16 It was about two moons since Silverstream's death. RiverClan had recieved three new members; Featherkit, Stormkit, and Graystripe. The gray tom still seemed heartbroken over Silverstream's death, and being in a new Clan only seemed to make it worse. Meanwhile, Mistyfoot had been very happy to learn about Fireheart's promotion to deputy. The flame-colored tom had seemed tired but happy every time they had met. He had told her the whole story; how Tigerclaw had led a group of rouges to attack the camp, and how he had tried to use the attack to kill Bluestar. Mistyfoot had, in turn, told Fireheart about how Bluestar had been forced to give her and her siblings up to save her Clan from Thistleclaw. Fireheart had sympathized with his leader, as did Mistyfoot. It was hard not to pity her when they were in love beyond the border.A Misty Flame part 164 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

When Silverstream didn't move, Graystripe threw his head back and yowled, "Silverstream!" He continued to wail as Mistyfoot padded up to Cinderpaw. She asked in a broken voice, "What happened?" The young medicine cat looked up at Mistyfoot with hollow eyes. "She went into labor, but there was too much blood. I'm sorry..."
