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.
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 96 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Barley called out, "Violet!" The she-cat opened her eyes and looked up. Her blue eyes widened with astoni
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! You're the traitor, Spottedleaf, not me!" There was no answer, and the wailing of the wind seemed to grow louder each moment, crushing Fireheart's senses, pounding in his brain...Fireheart's Betrayal part 106 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Fireheart!" Fireheart snapped his head up, panting. He was back in the warrior's den, and Longtail was looking dow
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 175 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 13 Every cat stopped fighting, and the strange tom got off of Barley. "Son?" He repeated. He gave the black-and white tom a curious sniff. 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 135 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

Fireheart looked up at Tigerclaw with an evil grin. "Let us rejoin the battle, my leader." Tigerclaw nodded, still wary of his former enemy. They were about to leave the den when Sandstorm raced into the den. She was bleeding heavily from the shoulder, and she leaned against the entrance to the den. "Blues-" She broke off, staring in disbelief at Bluestar and Graystripe's bodies. She looked up at Fireheart with shock in her green eyes. "Fireheart, what in the name of StarClan happened in here?!?"
Fireheart looked deep into Sandstorm's eyes, shock, betrayl, and misery plain to see in his green eyes. "Sandstorm, Graystripe attacked Bluestar. H-he would have killed her if I hadn't " He trailed off, hanging his head. Impressed with Fireheart's quick thinking, Tigerclaw stepped forward quickly. "It wasn't your fault, Fireheart." He turned to Sandstorm and explained heavily, "Graystripe went mad, saying that it was all Bluestar'
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 76 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

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
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...7 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
Green eyes flashed. Hollyleaf stepped into the light. Ashfur glared at her. "What do you want? I'm gonna tell them, whatever you say." Hollyleaf's eyes were cold. "The warrior code forbids bloodshed between cl
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 125 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
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 116 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Fireheart's Betrayal part 8 Ravenpaw watched in horror as Tigerclaw and Fireheart paused directly in front of the window. The dark tabby growled, "Are you sure he's here?" Fireheart nodded and mewed, "Positive. He was here when Graystripe and I visited him about three moons ago. He thinks he's safe from you here, Tigerstar." Ravenpaw froze in horror. TigerSTAR?!? "Oh StarClan no." He thought. His old enemy, the cat who had terrorized him for moons, was now leader of ThunderClan?!?Fireheart's Betrayal part 86 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Tigerstar pressed, "And he'll be easy enough to kill?" Fireheart's cruelly amused words chilled Ravenpaw's heart. "Have you no faith in me? Of course he will; he hasn't had to fight so much as a mouse since he left ThunderClan, and the only protection he has is that kittypet Barley." Fireheart gave a dark chuckle and added, "Trust me, it'll be easy, easier than killing Bluestar and Graystripe." Ravenpaw stared at Fireheart, shock and fear nearly overwhelming his mind.
