.:Little Darling - LightningClan:.

On the first morning, there was only one. Daisymask had woken from a shocking sleep, grumpy and groggy over her interrupted dreams. But any sourness she had quickly turned to intrigue when she spotted the giant red gerbera tucked up neatly against her flank. How had she not been disturbed by whoever had put it there? And moreover, who had decided to put it there? Why? She took a long sniff from the flower, smiling at its gentle scent. Such a sweet gift could only really have been left by Asterheart, she thought; after all, she didn’t know many other cats as with as much love and knowledge in the life of flowers. This one had clearly b

It was the first sunny day the clan had experienced over the last week or so, and many cats were taking advantage of the change in weather by soaking up the rays in the middle of camp. If the weather stayed like this too, there was chatter that the Rose Nest cats who weren’t planning to stay might head back to their home in the following days. To Flowerpaw, that still left too many cats in their already overcrowded camp – though they were coming up into the more bountiful moons of the year, there was still only so much prey in the wild for the taking. It had been a long leaf-bare; who was to say that new-leaf would be any better w

“Rowanflight! Oh, Rowan, big news, big news! Rowan? Roooooowan? Rowsie-posie, love of my life; my princess, my queen; mother of my children! Rowanflight, where are you?” Ashstorm poked his head through the entrance of the warrior’s den, his face falling as he scanned the curious faces before him, none belonging to his mate. He’d been certain he’d seen her there this morning – where had she disappeared to? From the back of the den, Minkfrost spoke up. “She told me she was going out to find you, Ashstorm.” The tom pulled a face. “I was only going to get some breakfast, she knew I wasnR

Daisymask took comfort in the peace and quiet of the outskirts of camp these days, just out of earshot of the hustle and bustle and bubbling excitement of her clanmates over their new Rose Nest companions. Though only eight cats – was it eight? She was beginning to lose count – had joined their ranks, many more were still coming and going, mingling between all five clans to greet the cats they had met so many moons ago. The she-cat supposed she ought to be more involved, more willing to say hello – after all, the clans were all visitors on their turf back then – but the idea of so many strangers in her space, her home,

Flowerkit was bored out of her brain. She wasn’t one to break the rules – particularly those her mother had set – but if she wasn’t allowed out of the nursery sometime soon, she felt she might burst. And it wasn’t just Shalestep, either – cats of all ages had been telling her and her siblings what they could and couldn’t do, when they could leave the den and when they absolutely could not. For the better part of half a moon, it felt like they were being held captive inside. And it was all because of that stupid eagle. There was no doubt in her mind that, if she were a warrior, she could take on that

Daisymask had never felt so uneasy at the prospect of a bit of fun as she did upon hearing Twilightstar’s announcement to the clan, telling them of the race she was proposing be held in the Twisted Hills. And, to be honest, she didn’t even have a good reason for her sense of nervousness; it was just as though a ball of worry had embedded itself into her stomach, weighing her down and begging her not to participate. She knew she wasn’t the fastest cat in the clan as it were. Hell, she suspected the only cats she would be faster than at all were the elders. Maybe it would be best if she just sat this one out.

Sunhigh had well and truly passed by the time Daisymask had spoken to two of her four children about how they were feeling; Asterheart had been more than willing to discuss the news near-immediately with her, trying to understand the exact details of the when and why, admitting that the only reason he would be upset was due to her having not said anything beforehand. But he understood why she hadn’t – something she took very seriously to heart, and thanked him for consistently – and gave way to let Primspark have her turn. The brown she-cat had said she was shocked, sure, but in retrospect had definitely suspected it at som

“It should be illegal to be up this early…” “Mom called for us, clearly it’s something important – though I guess it’d have been nicer to sleep a little longer…” “C’mon guys, it’s not too bad – this way we get to see the sun rise!” “You are far too chirpy for a morning this early, Prim.” The four siblings chattered among themselves as they walked through the night, following Shadowfire blindly as he led them to the flower patch he’d grown. Since finding out Shale and Shadow had officially become mates, their mother had spent quite some ti

Ashstorm had been counting down the days for weeks, to the point he was sure Rowanflight was sick of him – but he couldn’t stop himself. Though the two hadn’t talked about it, he knew this would be their final litter; and, if he was honest, he was glad for it. For one, it wasn’t as though he was getting any younger – at this rate, his grown-up children would have to help him chase after these kittens – and for another, he didn’t think either he or his mate could really manage the emotional toll of another litter after this one. They’d gone through so much together, and he would never have been a

Ashstorm could never have guessed how bright the stars were, thanks to the artificial light streaming in from all the surrounding twolegs’ nests and lamps back in their old camp. But this new camp, this new place to call home, was so isolated; so far away from those wretched beasts and their giant, roaring monsters, so far away from anything that could take away his freedom and from the stars. Because here they were, sparkling in their thousands, blinking down at him. They challenged him to name them, to learn more constellations and pass their infinite knowledge to his kin. To anycat else they likely would’ve served as just a lo

my mama always taught me that while hate is a strong word, there's one that trumps even that: love but maybe it's not the right thing to say when I admit to myself that I'm in love with a man I've never met aren't I just the biggest mess you've ever had the displeasure in meeting? my brain is muddled and yet for some reason my heart still rings its words true that one day I'd be brave enough, strong enough, independent enough to buy a plane ticket and travel halfway across the world in the hopes to meet you in a bookstore or café and the way that we'd kiss and fall in love every day and- no, oh my god you absolute slut what's wrong w

I think I'm relapsing again. I see you everywhere, in the smile of a passer-by and the tilted head of a questioning child. I hear your laughter, the quiet boom that sets my heart alight. I don't understand. I get sick to my stomach; I have to look once,                  twice,                     thrice just to be sure that the boy by her side isn't you. I can't cope with the pressure. I find myself needing to constantly be certain, completely, that it's only my imagination wanting me to hurt, and not you enforcing the pain. I never loved you. So why, why, after a whole year, a complete orbit of precisely three hundred and sixty-six

It had never really occurred to Daisymask that she'd lived a relatively wonderful life until the night she was told the clans - all the clans - were moving. She was petrified, of course; such a big change was, as to be expected, talk of the cats and not a worry belonging simply to her either, but that was not what called her to recognise the sheltered life she had led thus far. No, it was when StarClan reached down to her, to everycat, and spoke. The issue being that she had no ancestors in StarClan; that she woke up in a dream-like state high above LightningClan's current resting place without a clue as to what she was doing there. Cold. A

Obligatory New Year's journal here we go

I'm actually not sure if I want to reflect on this year any more than I already have, but for tradition and completion's sake, I did want to write a journal! Here is 2018's wrap up journal. 2019's resolutionsIn 2019, I would like to: - h ✔️ - Stabilize my emotional/personal life a bit so that it's not as turbulent as it was in 2018 Hm. Not really.

On the topic of Pride Month

On the topic of Pride Month issues going on, I just wanted to voice some thoughts, and I do want to say I'm honestly not really interested in a debate with people who are just against LGBT+ issues as a whole. I'm a person in the community, both in terms of orientation and in gender. It's not an opinion or choice on my part, thus, you're not changing my mind. And I'm guessing I'm not changing yours, either. Also, I'm going to go with LGBT+ as a term because I don't know what is best to use at this point (the acronym changes according to who uses it, and although I personally do not have any issues with the word queer, I know a lot of people do

Life updates, again

I think I made one recently, but I'm too lazy to check. So, here's a journal. First of all, art I don't really know what to do with it at the moment, to be honest. Art is something I do because... well, it's just what I do. But for the past while, I haven't had much of a drive. Sometimes a personal piece is fun to work on, but for the most part... I don't know. I don't have a drive to start an art piece or keep working. Things take a lot longer than they would/should, and it feels like a burden. I also don't feel like I can truly relax while I owe art, I can't let myself play a videogame or get too into a series because I feel guilty. I loo

My Bio

"You could rattle the stars," she whispered. "You could do anything, if only you dared."

Howdy guys, gals and non-binary pals! My name is Hope – well, my internet name is, anyhow. My real name is Abby but honestly I answer to most things, including variations of my deviantART username! I’m an INFJ 19-year-old cis female (she/her/hers) who lives in Australia and really loves everything a bit too much. I also really like puns, and while I’m not great at them I tend to use a few daily.

I have a certain love for music. Some of my favourite musicians at the moment include Peter Hollens, Gabrielle Aplin, Imagine Dragons and Bastille, but my all-time favourite musician is easily Lin-Manuel Miranda. His musicals Hamilton and In the Heights have changed my life for the better – an exaggeration, maybe, but it certainly doesn’t feel it. I also am obsessed with the game Undertale, and its spin-off AU Flowerfell.

Last year I started doing a Bachelor of Arts, studying a range of things like writing, history, biology and drama. In grade six we went to the CSIRO for an excursion, and from then I’d always wanted to be a forensic scientist or have a similar job in the crime force, but recently I’ve starting investing in the idea of following my mother’s footsteps into midwifery. I'm pursuing that interest now, and loving every second of it - though I’ve still got a lifetime ahead of me to sort it out.

I do write a lot, though. Like, a lot. I have a small bunch of super detailed characters, each of whom I love with my life. If you’re curious, feel free to check my CharaHub to learn more about them, or simply ask me! I could talk about each of them for days on end, and even plan to maybe publish a novel one day for at least one of them. My biggest inspiration in the writing world is Sarah J Maas, and specifically her Throne of Glass series.

Sometimes I write poems, though, and that’s normally a sign that I’m not mentally well. I’ve had clinical anxiety for several years now and since mid-2016 I’ve had touches of depression. It’s not been pleasant and I’m working through it, but much like anyone else who suffers any sort of mental illness or disability it takes a lot of time and hard work to heal, and that you often have to backtrack to get better. It’s messy, and it sucks, but it will one day get better.

I have several phenomenal friends who help me in my worst moments, and while there’s no way to thank every last one of them I’d like to give a ginormous shout-out to my best friends Chloe and Jada, and also to people here like Mythiril and SpitfiresOnIce. Y’all help make the burden that little easier to bear x

While this doesn’t even cover half of who I am, I’ll sign off here. I wish to give a huge thank you to every visitor, every friend and every stranger on this website, and out there in the world. I’m thankful for each and every one of you <3 Please never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns – I’ve been told I’m a good listener!

Kisses x
