Memories of a Deputy"Pearlsnow!" Pearlsnow swiveled her head around to face the small voice that called out to her. As she turned around three kits ran strait into her. The four cats proceed to flop to the ground.Memories of a Deputy in Short Stories More Like This
"Be careful, or someone might get hurt," Pearlsnow scolded as she helped the kits up, "now what did you want?"
"We wanna know how you became deputy of SnowClan!" Briarkit mewed.
"Ya, was it hard?" Autumnkit meowed unable to keep her curiosity in check.
"Hmm…how I became deputy?" Pearlsnow meowed thoughtfully. "It was just before my brother Echocall was born." Pearlsnow let the memories take hold.
Pearlsnow had been eating a mouse when Crystalstar's voice rang out.
"Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather under the Snow Ledge for a Clan meeting." Pearlsnow chewed the last bit of her mouse before heading to sit with her clanmates.
"Bearclaw has decided that she is unfit to be SnowClan's deputy," C
FireClan Assignment: Attack in the CampA hiss filled the air as a loud thump echoed through the parched ground, an equally loud swear accompanying the thump, the apprentice's voice carrying louder than Kindlestar had ever heard it. The FireClan leader's whiskers twitched with restrained amusement, not wanting her apprentice, Heatherpaw, to feel as though if she was being made fun of. Helping the apprentice get up, a somewhat harder feat for her than for most warriors as Heatherpaw was already her size, she remained quiet for a few moments, letting the look of embarrassment pass the younger one's face.FireClan Assignment: Attack in the Camp in Settings More Like This
"I'll never get this strike right, Kindlestar!" Heatherpaw finally complained, her ears flat against her head.
"Nonsense. It's a new move, Heatherpaw. Everyone has trouble getting it right the first time," Kindlestar mewed in a comforting voice, brushing her long haired tail against the apprentice's.
"I heard Dawncloud got it right the first time..." Heatherpaw muttered, staring at her dark paws as she
FireClan Assignment: The AftermathKindlestar's arrival to the camp just a few days before had left her in a mix of rage and icy coldness no FireClanner had ever seen her in before. Wildpaw, Badgerpaw, and Plushpaw all had been placed together, their bodies torn and lifeless. What sort of an animal could possibly do such a thing to cats so young? Surely no Clan was responsible. The stench of rogues was heavy in the air after all. Even the kits had suffered wounds, two of them at the brink of death if not treated soon. And what was worst of all, amidst all the chaos, there was no medicine cat to help them. Russetfur had been taken by the rogues, and Plushpaw seemed to have been killed in his efforts to help his mentor battle the savage intruders.FireClan Assignment: The Aftermath in Settings More Like This
Dawncloud had been ranting on and on about how it must have all been a ruse, how MoonClan was surely mixed in on the attack. It had been too much of a coincidence. They had just happened to call out to their leader right befo
FireClan Assignment: An Unfortunate Death - EndedNew apprentices were being trained, the territory had gone without intruders for almost a moon, and prey - while scarce - could still be found to feed an ever growing Clan. These things together should have made for a cheery mood, but instead a tense, desolate air suffocated the FireClan camp. Darkpaw, Gingerflight's apprentice, had passed away. The greencough had proved too much for the apprentice, and despite Russetfur's meticulous treating of the ill tom, StarClan had taken him away. The death of any cat was a sad moment, the death of an apprentice was simply devastating. To not even have lived to earn their warrior name, especially when so close to the ending of their mentoring simply seemed unfair.FireClan Assignment: An Unfortunate Death - Ended in Settings More Like This
Despite this loss, life went on in the Clan as usual. Mentors still making sure their apprentices where keeping their training properly, kits causing trouble for the queens, and apprentices grudgingly taking moss to the nursery and elders while taking
