    To my little brother

    Evn tho i am sad to see Geckostar leave, i am so happy for u to be leader. Its wat u always wanted, rite? Anyway, wen u choose a deputy, i would say Blacktail. Hes had an apprentice and i have not. He helpd me defend a clan fronm the Evil Within. And he took charge wen Geckostar left. ~•_Your loving sister, Destructiveclaw_•~

    Ivysong, Talonpaw, Bearslash, and Darkdream

    "I'm a Warrior!!!" I sing proudly. I grin and look over to Talonpaw, who is watching me proudly. "Congradulations!" He purrs. "You could've made a fine Warrior." I murmur, noticing for the first time how much he looked like my Grandfather, Tornadoclaw. Talonpaw shook his head, "Nahh, my destiny is to be a Medicine Cat." He meows. I nod and sigh. "Suit yourself." I tease. Talonpaw laughs and cuffs me behind the ear playfully. "I better get going now. I think I'm ready for my next herb test!" He purrs, trotting away to the Medicine Cat Den. I hear a purr behind me, "Congradulations, Ivysong." I turn around and see Bearslash, the Deputy and my father, looking at me proudly. I lick his cheek, "Thanks Dad." I murmur. "Your mother would be proud." He continued, reminding me of mt mother, Angelflare, who was killed in a fire. I hang my head. "This is no time to mourn her, Ivysong. This is time to celebrate!" My father meows. I smile and nod. -IS,TP,BS- I watch my Clan proudly. -DD-

    Cats

    I yowl for all the new warriors, my yellowy-green eyes shining. -Fangdusk

    (I love their names!!! But I'm just going to post some other ideas for my three because I'm just that way. Tee-hee XD)
    Nevercloud- Neverheart, Neverhawk, Nevershade, Neverdawn, Neverwing, Neverblossom, Neverfire, Neverfall, and Neverflight. ((Or Neverlightning in honor of Lightningfrost :,(......))
    Aspenclaw- Aspenbark, Aspenbranch, Aspenleaf, Aspensun, Aspenbound, Aspenswipe, Aspentwist, Aspenjump, Aspenfeather, Aspendive, Aspenbird, and Aspenstorm.
    Sharkfang- Sharkfur, Sharkwave, Sharkstream, Sharkflame, Sharkstorm, Sharkdust, Sharkstream, Sharkstrike, Sharkheart, and Sharkfrost.
    Okay, so Sharkfang and Aspenclaw are perfect!!! I love Nevercloud, too, but I really want to name one after Lightningfrost, because his memory should live on... he's gone for good this time, I think. Hasn't been on since mid-August... DX <--my sobbing-cuz-my-RP-brother's-gone face. So...SAD!!!! *sigh*.)

    Geckostar:Ceremonies

    (Lol, thanks! Hopefully I don't forget in the middle of the ceremony! :P) I leap up onto SkyTree, yowling,"Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather for a ceremony!!!!" I watch as the clan gathers below. "The time has come for Ashenpaw, Aspenpaw, Neverpaw, Sharkpaw, Wolfpaw, Ivypaw, Pythonpaw, and Mistypaw to become warriors!" I announce, purring. "Ashenpaw, please step forward." He steps forward, and I continue. "Ashenpaw, from this moment onward, you will be known as Ashensky." I then move on. "Aspenpaw, please step forward." I wait for him to do so. "From this moment onward, you will be Aspenclaw!" I smile down kindly. "Neverpaw, please step forward." The she cat steps forward. "Neverpaw, from this day on, you will be known as Nevercloud." I then motion for Sharkpaw to step up. "Sharkpaw, you will be known as Sharkfang." He steps back, and then Wolfpaw steps up. "From this day forward, you are Wolfcry!" I say, grinning. "Ivypaw, step forward." The gray she does so. "Ivypaw, you are now known as Ivysong," I mew proudly, looking at my grandaughter. "Pythonpaw, step forward." The python colored tom pads up. "From this moment onward, you will be known as Pythonjaw." My eyes land on my daughter, her violet eyes briefly changing red. "Mistypaw, please step forward." I watch her take a few steps frontward. "Mistypaw, you will be known as Mistyflower, in honor of our former leader, Mistystar." I hold back the tears at the memory of my longtime friend. "ASHENSKY, ASPENCLAW, NEVERCLOUD,SHARKFANG, WOLFCRY, IVYSONG, PYTHONJAW, MISTYFLOWER!!!!!" I yowl, and the rest of the clan joins in.+Geckostar

    A reviewer

    I have been looking years for any information on my great grandparents, Reuben and Mary Oves. Boy was I surprised when not only did I find information, but a photograph as well! Thank you Fred Miller for putting this book together!
