From Kit to Warrior: Part 2It had been a quarter-moon since Tigerpaw had become an apprentice and things hadnt gotten any better. He had gone on a few patrols and had learned new fighting moves. He was very good at fighting and he liked it a lot. He practiced when ever he could and even Patchpelt sometimes had trouble beating him. He was also good at hunting. Tigerpaw could easily leap into the trees to catch squirrels and birds. He ran very fast too and could chase the fasted mouse. It all made him feel proud to be an apprentice and soon become a warrior.From Kit to Warrior: Part 2 in Fan Fiction More Like This
The bad thing was, he still had to deal with his brother. He was still making fun of him and calling him Tigerkit and the rest of the apprentices joined in too. Even Whitepaw, who had been so nice to him when he first became an apprentice, was laughing at him. Tigerpaw also hadnt worked things out with Spottedpaw. She hated him now and Tigerpaw wanted to make things better, but he didnt know how.
He was always angry and upset. He just wanted
From Kit To Warrior: Part 10 A few days after the gathering Dappletail was coughing uncontrollably. She was immediately moved into the medicine cat's den. She was Tigerpaw's, Spottedpaw's and Redpaw's mother. Tigerpaw visited her and brought her something from the freshkill pile everyday. Spottedpaw almost never left her side. Redpaw never visited her and didn't even really care. Tigerpaw was infuriated by him neglecting their mother. How could he not care that she might die?From Kit To Warrior: Part 10 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Featherwhisker did everything he could, but nothing seemed to work. Finally after the third day of her laying sick he announced to the rest of the clan that it was greencough. By then a few other cats were steadily starting to get it and cough more and more. They too were moved into the medicine cat's den to stop it from spreading more.
Tigerpaw was mostly concerned for Dappletail. She just kept getting worse and worse. Soon she couldn't even eat anymore, she just didn't have the strength too. She lay in the medicine cat's d
From Kit to Warrior: Part 14He sneaked through the entrance and along the edge of the camp to the Medicine cat's den. It was so crowded inside with sick cats lying in nests everywhere. In the back he saw Spottedpaw curled up sleeping. Tigerpaw weaved through the bodies to her and prodded her side.From Kit to Warrior: Part 14 in Fan Fiction More Like This
She opened her eyes and looked up at Tigerpaw.
"Did you get the catmint?" She asked.
Tigerpaw nodded and set the bundle by her. She smiled and put in a pile with the rest of the medicine.
"Thank you Tigerpaw. You've saved the entire clan." She said as they touched noses.
Then she noticed his wounds.
"When I got the catmint a dog attacked me, but I'm fine."
"A dog attacked you? How were you able to beat it all by yourself?"
"I don't know I just did."
"That's amazing, but you are really hurt let me help you sit down."
Tigerpaw reluctantly listened and sat down. She rapped his ear with cob webs and then his side. Spottedpaw refused to let him leave and forced him to sleep in the medicine cat den.
From Kit To Warrior: Part 7In the days after beating Redpaw a lot happened. First Bluepaw and Whitepaw became Bluefur and Whitestorm. Then a huge snowstorm started. For the past three days it had been snowing and the wind had howled nonstop. Leafbare had started and it was going to be one of the worst ever.From Kit To Warrior: Part 7 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Most warriors were cooped up in their dens and they couldnt go out to hunt. The freshkill pile was getting low and almost no one ate except for the Elders and the cats in the nursery.
Tigerpaw now sat in the apprentices den with his head by the exit. He watched the snow pile on the ground higher and higher. It was almost impossible for anyone to walk in the snow now. It went all the way up to his belly and it showed no sign of stopping.
Soon he would go out on a patrol to try and hunt, but until then he was not allowed to leave the den. No one was allowed out of their dens unless they were out hunting or on a patrol. Everyone was afraid that with such a bad storm there would be sickness.
From Kit to Warrior: Part 4Tigerpaw ran until he was breathing so heavy that he thought his lungs would explode. He flopped down onto the ground. Tigerpaw laid there on the ground until his breathing slowed to normal.From Kit to Warrior: Part 4 in Fan Fiction More Like This
He looked down at his blood stained paws and was horrified all over again. Tigerpaw rapidly licked at his paws until every last bit of blood was gone. He stood up in the forest and started walking. Tigerpaw stumbled forward. He was limping slightly, was missing patches of fur, and cuts all over him oozed blood and stung. Tigerpaw ignored it and kept walking. He could smell the acidic stench of the thunderpath. It stung his nose and his throat.
Tigerpaw found the thunderpath and walked along the edge. He was careful not to get crushed by the monsters roaring past. He hadnt been in this part of the forest a lot and didnt know this area that well. So he just kept walking until he reached the edge of the twoleg place.
The fence stretched up above him. He sat down at the edge of the fence an
From Kit to Warrior: Part 6Tigerpaw dug his claws into the soft ground. About half a moon ago he had fought in the big battle for Sunningrocks. He could still remember how during the battle he had gone crazy with blood lust and attacked any cat in his path. He had felt so powerful, but it also made him terrified to think of how he had been so willing to kill another cat. He shivered.From Kit to Warrior: Part 6 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Now finally half a moon later he was going to go back to the apprentices den and continue his training. He knew he would have to work extra hard because now he was an entire moon behind all the other apprentices and he needed to catch up.
Also tonight there was a full moon. Tigerpaw hoped that this time he would be able to go. After how hard and great he had fought he just knew the Sunstar would pick him to go this time.

Spottedpaw stood and padded over to where he lay in the nest. What were you thinking? Are you crazy? Why did you just run off like that when you were hurt? Spottedpaw asked in a rush, clearly worried.
What do you mean hurt? Im fine! He said he tried to stand. He was unbalanced and his legs collapsed beneath him.
No you are not. She shook her head. Youre hurt really bad and you almost died! You need to be careful. I dont want to lose you.
Im surprised you even care. He hissed.
I do care. Youre my brother and I love you. She still looked very worried.
She didnt care before why should she care now? He thoug
From Kit To Warrior: Part 3Tigerpaw followed behind Patchpelt and the rest of the patrol as they made it through the forest. They stopped every once in a while to mark the borders and then continued on. Bluepaw and Whitepaw were with the patrol too. Tigerpaw was happy that his brother wasnt on the patrol with them. If he was he would have been miserable the entire time.From Kit To Warrior: Part 3 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Also Patchpelt had said they could do some battle training when they were finished marking the borders.
They passed the way to Fourtrees. Tigerpaw looked away and pushed away the sorrow and disappointment that came from looking that way. They then came to Sunningrocks. He hadnt been there many times, but he loved to lie on the nice warm rocks.
They stopped to mark the border when something dashed out of the bushes and attacked Patchpelt. It was Riverclan. Another cat streaked out of the bushes and another.
It was an ambush.
There had been conflicts between Riverclan and Thunderclan over Sunningrocks for many moons and clearly Rivercla

He started by saying the prey was running well in Shadowclan. Tigerpaw saw that unlike most of the other cats in the clearing the Shadowclan cats looked very well fed and not thin at all. He finished by saying that one of their apprentices had been made a warrior. The Shadowclan cats in the clearing shouted the cat's name. Then Raggedstar sat back down on the highrock in the center of the clearing.
Next Tallstar stood and said the prey was running fairly well in Windclan territory. Then sat back down for he had nothing else to say.
After Tallstar, the Riverclan leader Crookedstar stood and like the others said the prey was running well, but when Tigerpaw looked around at the Riverclan cats he saw they looked very thin. With the river completely frozen they weren't able to fish and didn't have much prey to hunt for, but they didn't want to look weak in front of the other clans. He then sat back down.
Now it was Sunstar's turn. He told the othe

"Quiet! That's exactly why we can't let anyone know about it. Only you can go and get the catmint." She whispered.
"Why can't you go?"
"Featherwhisker is sick so I have to stay and take care of the rest of the sick cats. You have to go alone, tonight. We have no other choice."
Tigerpaw thought about it for a second. She was right. There was no other way. He was the only one that could go and get the catmint.
"Alright." He said and nodded. "Where is the Twoleg den with the catmint.?"
"It's right on the edge of the forest. It's white and black and there is a huge wall surrounding it. Just leap over the wall and get inside the Twoleg den. There is catmint growing inside."
"Wow. How exactly am I supposed to get in?"
"There is a little tunnel inside. Don't worry you will find it. Now go and get some rest and I'll come and get you tonight after the sun sets."

Snowpaw shifted in her spot between Flamepaw and Sootpaw. It was a clan tradition for every able cat to gather together underneath the High Limb every full moon. Even the kits, scolded into sitting quietly, would watch from the back with the queens.
Moonstar leaped up onto the High Limb, the signal that the gathering was starting. A hush flew over the crowd, making the camp eerily silent. Moonstar sat up tall on the branch, and out of the corner of her eye, Snowpaw could see her father, Dayflight, sitting tall and proud at seeing his mate up there, his eyes glowing with pride.
"Who would like to share first?" Moonstar asked.
It was Mapleheart who stood up. "I would like to, Moonstar," she said. Moonstar nodded, giving Mapleheart permission. Ashclaw stood up beside her.

Flamedsparks lay next to the body, her face buried deep into her mate's fur, wails and cries of agony emanating from her throat. Mallowpaw lay next to her, cleaning her father's pelt, a lost look on her face. Marshpaw sat behind them, his head held low as he stared at the ground, a sorrowful look on his face.
Flamepaw sighed and closed her eyes, trying to relax and forget about the day's events, but the more she tried to forget, the more they came flooding back. Coldheart is dead she thought. Murdered in cold blood. Who would do such a thing?
"What happened?" Flamepaw, hearing the familiar voice, opened her eyes and looked up to see Snowpaw standing over her. The white apprentice settled down next to Flamepaw and waited for her to answer.

MoonClan's Prophecy- Chapter 6Flamepaw sat at the edge of the clearing, washing her side, a half-eaten water vole at her paws.

She watched as Heatherpool and Foxwhisper settled down next to each other. Heatherpool's stomach was slightly swollen with kits due in a moon.
Flamepaw stopped washing and sat up to watch as the two shared their prey. She wondered if she would ever have a mate. The only toms in the clan without a mate were Marshpaw, Robinpaw and Sootpaw, and it was clear from the way Snowpaw and Sootpaw suddenly clung to each other it was only a matter of time before her sister had kits of her own. Besides, she had never felt anything other than friendship with Marshpaw and Robinpaw, and it seemed they too felt the same.
Flamepaw glanced at the two newly named warriors, Cinderblossom and Thrushpelt. They had received their names only a few days ago. She watched as they

"Lilacpaw, Sootpaw, do you promise to uphold the warrior code and defend this clan, even at the cost of your lives?"
Flamepaw could barely contain her excitement as she watched Moonstar say the ceremonial words, dreaming of her own warrior ceremony in only a few days. But it was clear Sootpaw was even more excited, his amber eyes glowing, his pelt fluffed up with pride as he said, "I do!"
"I do," Lilacpaw said, her expression much more reserved and content.
How can she be so calm at a time like this? Flamepaw thought. She's about to become a warrior!

"Mother, when can I go out on a patrol?" Snowkit asked, looking up at Moonstar.
Moonstar looked down at her kit and purred, her amber eyes glowing with amusement. "When you become an apprentice, you can go on patrols with the other apprentices and the warriors. But for now," Snowkit flattened her ears as Moonstar licked her head, "you must stay with me in camp. Now go play with your sister."
Snowkit stood up as Moonstar gave her a nudge with her muzzle. She scanned the clearing for her the orange tabby she-cat that was her sister, Flamekit, finally spotting her playing with Sootkit and Lilackit, Scorchfur and Kindheart's kits. Snowkit padded over, ears pricking to catch their conversation as she neared.

Snowpaw felt excitement coursing through her as she turned to face her new mentor, who was padding towards her, head held high with the pride of being chosen to mentor an apprentice.
Snowpaw padded up to meet him, an obvious bounce in her step. Sunheart leaned down, and she reached up to touch noses with him. Then she sat down next to him to watch Flamekit receive her apprentice name.
Moonstar turned and looked at Flamekit. "From this moment on, until she has received her warrior name, this apprentice shall be known as Flamepaw. Fleetwind, you are ready for an apprentice. You shall be mentor to Flamepaw."
Snowpaw watched as her sister touched noses with Fleetwind. The cats surrounding nodded and mumbled their approval. As soon as the cats broke up, Snowpaw raced to her sister's side.

Snowpaw felt excitement filling her as she remembered her assessment yesterday. She didn't know if she had passed. Sunheart and Fleetwind had gone straight to Moonstar's den when they got back and hadn't told her or Flamepaw anything.
Snowpaw stood and left the den, looking around for Sunheart, wanting to ask him about the results of her assessment. Instead, it was Sootlife who caught her eye as he padded towards her.

"Even with all the attacks?" Snowpaw asked, a little surprised.

"I'm sorry! Just hold still! I almost got it," Mallowpaw meowed. Snowpaw felt the brambles move once more. "Ok, come out!"
Snowpaw scrambled backwards again, a few last thorns snagging her fur and breaking away from the bush. She shook out her pelt as Mallowpaw let the branches fall. Turning to look at her pelt, Snowpaw let out a sigh at her dirty, ruffled fur that was covered in thorns.
"Maybe we should look for cobwebs somewhere else," Mallowpaw suggested.
"Good idea," Snowpaw said. Mallowpaw sat down next to her and started to pull the thorns out of her fur.
"Is everything okay?" The two she-cats looked up to see Foxwhisper padding towards them. A moon had passed since Coldheart's death, but Moonstar still didn't want cats to go out
