A silver warrior stood before her. "I give you wisdom." She touched her nose. <br> "I am Lightstar, and l give you the life of integrity." <br> Last of all was a grey kit. "I give you honor. Honor your clan and clanmates." They touched noses, and Starclan cheered "Shimmerstar! Shimmerstar!"

Nine starclan cats appear at the surface of the moon pool in front of the new leader to be. The first silver cat stepped forward. She had silver stripes on her back that curled at the end. "I am Silvervine. I give you one life for love." She smiled and stepped back. An orange tom stepped forward next. "I am flamingstar. I award you one life for your integrity." He stepped back and a gray tom stepped forward. "I am windheart. I give you a life for your bravery." He stepped back as an indigo she padded over the surface of the water. "I am stellawind. I present you with this life for your loyalness." She smiked as a black tom stepped up. "I am shadowcast. I give you this life for your honesty." He flicked his starry tail and steeped back as a strong male padded up. "I am strikingstar. I award you this life for your kindness" then a small she glided forward. "I am frozenflower. I give you this life for your smarts." The last two cats step forward at the same time, both shes. The first one spoke. "I am icetail. I give you this life for your strength." She finishes and all off the cats dissapear except for blazingsun, the last cat. "I am Blazingsun if you remember. I give you your last life for you hardwork. For you caringness to your mate and kits, and your willingness to become leader for silvervine." Blazingsun dips her head. "Good luck" she said solemly, and dissapeared.

A slightly bluish shecat stepped out of a foreboding mist that hid the rest of the other eight cats. She held her head high, amber eyes gazed at Thymedust patiently. "My name is Leafdapple, former daughter and medicine cat of Amberstar and the once thriving clan of Thunderclan." She paused, a wave of deep emotion passing through the beautiful shecat. "I have come to give you one of your lives on the behalf of Ashenclan. I give you the life of wisdom, may you gain it from your mistakes and have it the rest of you prosperus leadership." She smiled kindly, then bent forward and touched noses with the tom a surge of electricity. Before she pulled away she bent forward and spoke into his ear, "Tell Amberleaf of Horseclan and also find Fawnstep, she will become your friend. I also give you a message for them from Starclan. Here is a prophecy; A dreaming flower maybe be forgotten in the glory of its namesake, the canines will trample her shy petals but a soft silk star will have the ultimate decision." She finished, then turned around and padded into the mist.

A starry figure padded toward him. Wait no...she floated toward him. She had brown fur with vivide yellow eyes. "Welcome Thymedust." She meowed. "With this life, i give you Wisdom. Be wise in all decisions you make." She meowed touching noses with him. Flaming pain swept through him...but soon..it was replaced by a feeling of rising power ~Sundapple~

Milk saw herself in the fprest of Starclan. She padded round... then she saw... she saw... Mudwhisker! Her father was in a clan, but left to be with Sand, Milks mother. Milks sisters were Rose and Berry. Her brothers were Thorn and Shrew. They were coming home..... she knew. This was where she belonges. In a clan. Maybe she could... just maybe... then they would be tigether again. And she would....

Are you looking for a brave, loyal Clan? Then good news, you found one! HurricaneClan! We accept all cats! Are you a rogue or loner tired of wandering? Are you a kittypet who wonders about the world beyond your Twoleg's home? Are you a lost kit looking for somewhere to call home? Are you a mother of kits trying to find somewhere safe to raise your family? Are you an elder who just wants a cozy spot to settle down? Or do you have uncommon powers that most cats avoid (red, purple, silver, bronze, etc. colored eyes, wings, control over weather or elements, ability to shapeshift, etc.)? If this is you, or even if it's not, then you can join HurricaneClan! Just come to Wind and Fire and ask to join! Give your name, description, personality, etc. Thanks! -Moonchaser
