    Halfnight and Flowernose

    Sorry, just saw this Lily! Well, right before this i just did a long "flowernose healing a kit" thing, and don't wanna post over it till Shimmerkit sees my post. So hopefully Shimmerkit is fairly active and I can post as Halfnight too. Hopefully tomorrow.

    Seafire

    He shouts the new apprentices names, loudest for his kit's. A surprised look crosses his face when he hears his name called for mentoring, but he steps up and touches noses with his apprentice nonetheless.

    Rosepetal&co

    And Rosetal didn't get an apprentice because all they'd do is play :D and Lilywolf, as I said before, I want Crystalpaw to train a few times with Goldenstar, so even if it's July of next year, I eant her to actually get to train with Goldenstar no matter what. I don't mind waiting :) unless of course my friend takes over rp'ing her for me, then that's her choice.)) Rosepetal cheered loudly, because she was in a happy mood. Plus it was a nice day for a change. She couldn't clearly hear all her sister was saying but she definitely was happy for her and the young cats being named. ~&real &hearts~ Crystalpaw cheered happily for the new apprentices, not minding in the slightest still being an apprentice herself. She wanted the max training possible before moving onto a new stage in her life. -Crystalpaw &star

     Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Leader's Den

    Create

     Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Leader's Den <br />

    <br />

    Created by the boulders that support the high log is a cave that is nearly hidden in shadow. Inside the sandy floor is cool and soft and dappled light flits across the stone walls. A single nest made with extra feathers sits towards the back with a piece of prey resting nearby. This is where the leader of Horseclan can rest after a busy day of running the clan. Clanmates can also come here to speak with the leader or may be asked to come for the same reason. Much of Horseclan's daily business is conducted within these walls and it is often an honor to be surrounded by them in the presence of a leader. ~ The Leader's Den, Lilywolf

    Lilywolf to Horseclan ~ Clan Meeting! Mass Apprenticing! :P

    The light gray tabby shecat leaps up onto the high log and yowls, "Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the high log for a clan meeting!" Lilywolf waits until her clanmates have gathered below her, her ice blue eyes happy. "My clanmates." She begins. "Goldenstar is still recovering from his encounter with Redspirit. But I am sure under the care of Flowernose and Flightpath, he will make a full recovery. And tonight many of our youngest members will start on a new leg of their lives. Would Rosekit, Dustkit, Blizzardkit, Gingerkit, Riverkit, Amberkit, Lightnigkit, and Velvetkit please come forward." Once the little cats stand before her, Lilywolf meows, "These kits are ready to become apprentices and will begin their training. From now on they will be known as Rosepaw, Dustpaw, Blizzardpaw, Gingerpaw, Riverpaw, Amberpaw, Lightningpaw, and Velvetpaw. Rosepaw your mentor will be Whitefury." Nodding to the white tom, the deputy continues, "Whitefury, pass on your courage and selfless heart to Rosepaw." Lilywolf continues on through the list, "Dustpaw, your mentor will be Wolftooth. Wolftooth, you have proven that there is more to loyalty than being born on the prairie. Pass on this quality to Dustpaw. Blizzardpaw, your mentor will be Larkfrost. Larkfrost, pass on your perserverence and gentleness to Blizzardpaw. Gingerkit, your mentor will be Halfnight. Halfnight pass on your kindness and thoughtfulness to Gingerpaw. Riverpaw your mentor will be Seafire. Seafire, pass on your determination and strength to Riverpaw. Amberpaw your mentor will be Wavebreak. Wavebreak pass on your love and helpfulness to Amberpaw. Lightningpaw your mentor will be Mouseheart. Mouseheart, pass on your calmness and patience to Lightningpaw. And finally Velvetpaw you shall be my apprentice. I will pass on all I know to you." The deputy steps forward and touches noses with her adopted daughter. She hopes that by giving Lightningpaw to Mouseheart, the mother of the twins can develop a bond with at least one of her kits. But Lilywolf understands that that is far from possible with Velvetpaw. "You'll make a great warrior, Velvetpaw. I just know it!" The deputy purrs and dismisses the meeting with a flick of her tail, leading Velvetpaw back to the main clearing. ~ Lilywolf &hearts P.S. Okay so Deercloud didn't get an apprentice cause she has to take care a Ripplekit, Morningdew cause she's still somewhat in the dog house, Heronstripe or Greyflower because they're fairly new to clan life, Shellpool and Mistyrose because of secrets, Spottedpine because... well next time round Spotted! XD Lol as you will notice I gave Gingerpaw, Riverpaw, and Amberpaw to less active rpers because they still need rpers. Rosepaw does too Whitefury but hang in there (Wavebreak's rping her in the meantime)! Willowstar and Poppystar seriously need to post their clan info! Otherwise I'm just going to do a bunch of Horseclan advertisements and the other clans won't get rpers. Halfnight please rp a little more at least when your apprentice has a rper. Seafire and Wavebreak, you do pretty well! I will be taking Cinderpaw (Rabbitwhisker's apprentice), Patchpaw (Cloudripple's apprentice), and Crystalpaw (Goldenstar's apprentice) out for an assesment before they are warriors. Same goes for this new group. So no matter what every apprentice will get some training in! Mouse if you don't want them apprenticed we'll just ignore that for Velvetpaw and Lightningpaw!
