    To Flamestar

    I ask because the name of this book struck an idea. On my fave show there is a pegasus names Spitfire. Im known for copying the show to the best of descriptions. My thought: make a cat named Spitfire that looks like spitfire from the show (costume and all) and make it allowed to shapeshift into the one from the show. If its allowed. To see the description, go onto google search and type spitfire wonderbolt into the images search.

    (Looks at the clan, knowing that Flamepelt should have been leader. He also remembered being betrayed in the end, and the fight with Snowmelt. He began to shed a tear, but quickly stopped, momentarily turning black with a gold accent. He grimaced, then changed back to his metallic gold color. He then walked back to his castle, smirking)
