    Bloodclan's awakening.. by viperfang

    Proluge...... leaf bares cold bitter wind tore mercilessly down the valley walls, kicking up clouds of leaves that once lay scattered aimlessly across the cold barren earth. A silver ahe-cat, her belly swollen with unborn kits padded along frozen riverbank. Her desperate grey eyes serching for any prey availiable."oh, silverwing what have you done to yourself" she murmured sadly and slumped down in exaustion." Iv been traveling for moons.. no prey...no shelter.. i cant go on" her eyes became watery, then hardened and she sat up as straight as her belly would allow. "I have to kep going, the kits must survive, they are part of the mistwing legacy" she searched around and saw a little cave almose fully covered by snow." Great atarclan,thank you!" She meowed in gle and staggered over to the cave. She sniffed scenting for badger or fox,picking up no scent she was suspicious. She peered down into the dark recesses of the cave. It went a long ways in. Silverwing stepped insidand was overcome by warmth. There was a small pond with some carp in it. It went deep down. Sh would block it off when th kits came. She grabbe a rotting branch and settled down when th covulsions began.. he yowled in pain as a orange shecat slid out. The pain was horrid h bled profusely. Then a bracken colored shecat sliped out quickly. " cobrakit. And fernkit." She murmured and her eyes drifted closed. Snow spialed in an took the outline of a slender she-cat."may the shrine of mists guide you, young mother.." it whispered and dissapeared.-*-*-*-*-*-*--*-*--*-*-&*--*-*-*--**--**-**-*-&-**-***--***-**-**-*----*--*-****-*-*6-*-**-**-*&****-****-*/';':'/:-*-*-*-*-*-*-&*-*-*-*-

    Intruding by Piper

    I walked around. Everything wa bright. The forest I was in was colorful ad airy. All tye birds sang. Man why havent I seen this place before. I gasped as I pad twards a clearing. The clearing had a big meadow with a stream running through it. It was beautiful. "Great star clan!" I gasped as I saw these red eyes glaring from the forest. Then a gaint she-wolf stepped out. I meowed scaredly as she inched forward. Then two other male wolves pad up behind her. "Whats with the cat?" Asked one of them. The she-wolf growled. "Who are you?!?" She barked angerly. "Fawnflight" I squeeked. I trembled and shook with fear. "Why are you here?" She asked irratated. "I got lost.." I answered weakly. "Well the treaty says you have to stay off our land!" She growled angerly. "Im sorry!" I yowled. "Sorry doesnt cut it, pal" she howled. "Sneer. Snatch." She barked. "Yes?" They asked. "Take this lovly cat to our prison" she ordered. "Yes alpha" they replied. They picked up fawnflight by the sruff of her neck. "No!!!" I yowled. I sqwurmed around trying to claw at them. "Oh be quiet" barked sneer. "Yeah ya dum cat" snickered snatch. I then hissed at them. "Oh look the big bad cats trying to be scary!" Mocked sneer. "Well im certainly terrified!" Mocked snatch. They both snickered. They then pad up to a hole in a boulder. It had bars over the hole. Snatch lifted them up. Sneer then dropped me into the hole. Snatch then but the bars back on. "Release me now!" I demanded. Sneer snickered. "No you little runt" mocked snatch. I hissed at them again. A loud howl then rang out. The two dissapeared into the forest. "Im stuck" i meowed quietly. "A prisoner to wolves" i said. I then began to cry. "Why did I have to wander off?" I yowled. Just then the sun began to set. The last rays of sunshine lit my small prison cell. I lifted my paw to feel the warnth. It then slowly dissapeard. I was left in the cold cell. I mourned for my tribe. My family. I curled up and sighed. I was exausted and sick. So I closed my eyes and slept. The next morning sneer, snatch, and the she-wolf returned. "Bring her to me" she ordered. They nodded. Sneer removed the bars while snatch picked me up. "Bring her to trial" she demaned. They nodded again. She then pad off and we followed. We then came to a large cave. Inside were 5 old looking wolves were necklaces of bones. "Chain her" she ordered. Sneer and snatch did as told. They chained me to rock infront of the wolves. "Fswnflight" said the oldest wolf. "You have broken the treaty and all its rules, is the true?" He asked. I hissed. Sneer then growled at me. I sighed then nodded. "How dare you break the peace between us!" Growled a older looking she-wolf. "I didnt know... i just got lost and intruded onto your territory" I pleaded. They all mumbled. I looked worridly around. "Fawnflight since you are accused.... innocent by pack law we set you free" said the oldest. "Thank you! Thsnk starclan!" I yowled. Sneer then unchained me. I took off as fast as i could. I pad back to my tribe. But i still worrided that the wolves could return. Seeking to punish me.

    My Story Entry

    Name of Story: The Fall of Sparrowfoot
    By: Writer4Life

    The moon was cast high in the sky, generously sending its silver light down onto the damp, cool grass below. The scene among the forest was placid. Barely a rustle in the trees or a squeak of a lone mouse was heard. But my eyes were still wary, as I scanned the foliage beyond the campgrounds.
    After seeing nothing that caught my interest, I shifted my eyes to the cat beside me. The tom shrugged, before turning his gaze back to the forest. The night light being released from the near-full moon bleached my companion's dark tabby fur white, and I was mesmerised at the scene.
    Suddenly, a shake in the undergrowth was heard. My eyes narrowed; my hearing sharpened. Swiftly, I was on my paws, scanning the camp entrance for any signs of invasion. My sight and hearing proved nothing, but my heart still thumped against my chest as I sat down again, slowly relaxing my muscles as the rustling subsided.
    Big mistake.
    I heard a stifle of a gasp from my Clanmate, as his emerald eyes darted around, slowly centering on a bush, nearly invisible in the dark, ominous shadows. However, the dark canopy that was settled over the green plant could not hide the eyes, gray and cold, from my awarance.
    Just as I was just about to screech a warning, a dark shape barrled into me. I felt sharp teeth pressing against my throat. With a snarl of defiance, I hurled the invader off with my hind legs. From the hissing not far from me, I knew that my friend was being attacked as well.
    A groan was heard from one of the dens, as a cat emerged from the treelog that the warrior's den. "Great StarClan! What's going-" the voice was adruptly cut off by a shriek. //We're being ambushed!// An icy claw, sharp and hard, ran down my spine. Literally. Screaming defiance, I threw the cat off and sped to the dens. "Wake up! Wake up! We're being ambushed! Help!"
    The warriors were instantly up. Several raced out just heartbeats after my warning was released; others were groggy until they heard the vehement scene going on outside. The clearing was filled with the sounds of screeching and the scent of blood just moments after the first attack was thrown, when Lighteye and I were holding our silent warrior vigils. The mere thought of being warriors tensed my muscles, and I outstretched my claws. //Robinstar made me a warrior. I shall not let her down!//
    My ears pricked as I scented my best friend, Fawnflight, battling with two toms. My recent adrenaline rush strengthened me, and I crashed into one of the invaders. I winced as one of the tom's claws slashed at my belly. Blood gushed out, but I nevertheless pursued my attacker, nipping at his tail until he dashed out our territory. I glanced towards Fawnflight, who had her teeth embedded into her opponent's leg. After the cat screamed in pain, she let go, sending a couple scratch warnings with her in her pain package. Her forehead dripping with blood, she looked towards me, smiling. "Thanks."
    "No problem!" I purred, the tension from the battle raised temporarily.
    I was snapped back into battle mode as a cat slammed into me. My eyes widened as I recognized the scent, a scent I had smelled often at Gatherings…
    "Clawstar!"
    Without answering, the she-cat sunk her claws into my neck. My spit of defiance was cut off by a gruesome gurgle. My head whirled as I struggled to get a grip on the ground. The results were futile as I sunk into dark, comforting darkness.

    Hidden Enemy by Jaysoar

    "Driftpaw! Sandpaw! Spiderpaw! Come out so you can be on a dawn patrol!" Volewing called out to the three young apprentices. "A dawn patrol?" Spiderpaw yawned as he sat up from his moss nest. "Why can't Fawnpaw do it instead of me?" He growls. Sandpaw opened her eyes to reveal sharp blue eyes almost hidden by her moss nest. "I don't care if we go or not." Sandpaw growled. "And Fawnpaw is going to have her warrior assessment today at sunhigh, so she has to be ready. Driftpaw jumped around. "My first patrol!" He meowed in glee. These three apprentices just became apprentices last sunset. "I don't care." Sandpaw growled as she and Spiderpaw stepped out of their nests. Driftpaw's black pelt disappeared when he ran outside. Spiderpaw and Sandpaw heard Volewing, Driftpaw's mentor. They couldn't make out what he is saying until they stepped out. Volewing continued as Driftpaw's tail drooped. "...but your mother, Petalfoot, jumped in front of me. The badger's fangs locked onto her belly and..." Volewing stopped to look at his apprentice's wide green eyes began to fill with tears. "And all of t-that happened when I was sleeping? Did you tell Fawnpaw yet?" Driftpaw stammered. "I'm so sorry, Driftpaw. I don't want Fawnpaw to know yet." Volewing crouched by him and presses his muzzle next to his. "But Clawflight, your and Fawnpaw's father, have told Sharpstar and Cherrywhisker that your sister is ready for her warrior assessment." Driftpaw shook his head as Sandpaw and Spiderpaw slipped past him to get some fresh-kill. Driftpaw shood have been with Fawnpaw with her warrior assesssment, but he had greencough. He can't be fit enough to have the ceromony with Fawnpaw until he is completly better. Suddenly, a cry rang through the camp. Sharpstar raced out of his den with Cherrywhisker behind him. "What was that?!" Cherrywhisker asked Volewing. "It must been outside of camp." Volewing hesitated. "Take a patrol with you, Volewing." Sharpstar ordered. "Alright. I'll take Cherrywhisker, Fernshine, Bluefeather, Jaggedfang, and Spiderpaw with me." Volewing called out loud. Spiderpaw jumped up when he called his name. Fernshine, Bluefeather, and Jaggedfang padded out of the warriors' den. Sharpstar looked back at Volewing. "TrueClan will never forget this." He muttered. Volewing nodded and, with a flick of his tail, the patrol raced out of sight, with Spiderpaw closed behind. "Oh, Starclan no!" Fernshine's voice rang out. Spiderpaw pushed through Bluefeather to see a large body lying motionless on the ground. It was Fireshade, Fernshine's mate and Fawnpaw's mentor. "He's dead." Cherrywhisker whispered. "A enemy is in our border!" Bluefeather yowled. "Fawnpaw will get killed!" Jaggedfang yelled. "Stop it." Cherrywhisker hissed to the cats. "Volewing, find Fawnpaw. Take Spiderpaw with you. Fernshine and Bluefeather, take Fireshade's body to camp. Jaggedfang, report this to Sharpstar now. I'll go and tell our medicine cat Ratpelt to get ready for Fireshade's vigil. Now!" Jaggedfang followed Cherrywisker to TrueClan's camp. Bluefeather and Fernshine grabbed Fireshade's body on the muzzle with their teeth and dragged it back to TrueClan's camp. Volewing flicked his tail toward Spiderpaw and raced off. Then, Fawnpaw's scent went up Spiderpaw's nose. Then, a ginger cat came in with a black cat in her jaws. "Fawnpaw!" Volewing sniffed the black cat. "It's the enemy. Fawnpaw killed it." Volewing reported. When they got back to camp, Fawnpaw is now Fawnflight. THE END.

    Never Gonna Give In - Jaystar

    Dappledwing stood over her nest, blood dripped into her face from a cut over her right eye, she had a long gash going from her chest to her shoulder. The two foxes faced her, they had many wounds but stood firm. 'Why won't they give up?' She wonders. She is suddenly shoved forward by two cats, they took her two ginger kits and bounded away, she yowled in fury and lunged after them, she paused when she saw they had killed her small silver and white she-kit she wailed in grief. She picked up her remaining kit, a small silver and white tom with gray streaks running through the silver, and retreated, running as far as she could. She could feel the foxes' hot breath on her tail and picked up the pace. She kept running even after she knew she'd outrun the two foxes. She stops in a hollow and sets the kit, Jaykit, down and shivered. "Great StarClan it's cold!" She curls around him and drifts to sleep. ***Six Moons Later*** The newly named Jaypaw led his weary mother through the forest. He had told her about the wonderful Clan he had found and suggested they join it. He pads to the border and found Shadowstar and a patrol waiting for him. "You came." The older tom purred, his stormy blue eyes seemed to be permanantly sad. "Of course, may we join, please?" Jaypaw asks hopefully. "You may, is this your mother?" He asks, nodding to Dappledwing. "I am, you must be Shadowstar, the leader of WolfClan. Thank you for allowing us to join." She purrs tiredly. "Your son is very persuasive." Shadowstar chuckled and then led them back to camp. Two cats Jaypaw recognized from the previous day, a white tom with blue markings he was a huge tom cat named Skolltail. Another he realized was Sparrow, Shadowstar's sister. *A Few Days Later* Jaypaw drops a chaffinch on the fresh kill pile and sits, licking a forepaw he draws it over his ears and perks his ears. He looks up to see a small white she-cat, a moon younger than himself, walk into camp. She had many wounds, he stood and walked over. "Are you alright?" He asks. "I will be." She replied, eyeing him bit warily. "I'll get Hatigrowl." He says and bounds to the Medicine Den, he pads out wth Skolltail's brother who was black with red markings. He examines the apprentice's wounds and patches her up while Jaypaw and the she-cat chat. "I'm Jaypaw, who are you?" He asks lamely. "I'm Ghostpaw, is-is this WolfClan?" She asks. Jaypaw nods. "Are you going to join?" "I might, if your leader will let me." Ghostpaw smiled. "Alright you should be good now." Hatigrowl says and pads back to his den with the remaining herbs. **Another Couple Days Later** Jaypaw walked back in from training with Shadowstar and Fawnflight. He nods to the lithe pretty she-cat as he pads over to Ghostpaw who was recovering very well and had been apprenticed to Fawnflight. Fawnflight followed Jaypaw over and smiled at Ghostpaw,"How are you doing?" She asks. "Much better now, thank you Fawnflight." Ghostpaw smiles. Jaypaw and Ghostpaw share tongues after eating a hare and curl up side by side, drifting to sleep. The next morning they got up and blushed in embarrasment, seeing they'd slept in. Shadowstar and Fawnflight were already awake! They walk over to their mentors, Jaypaw grins sheepishly. The four cats all laugh and then pad out of camp to hunt. Jaypaw smiles at Ghostpaw and bumps her before racing ahead, she laughed and dashed after him. They'd become great friends over the past half moon. "No fair Jaypaw! You got a head start!" She giggles.

    I had enough by rippleshadow and fawnflight

    "I bet you arnt even fighting on the clans side" sunshade snorted "your probaly already on glazewings side" rippleshaddow growled something to quiet to hear and unseathed his claws, crouching down to pounce.
    "Dont listen to him rippleshadow," the soft murmur of fawnflights voice rang through his ears and rippleshadow straightend. Fawnflight shot a stern gaze at sunshade "stop being a mousebrain and go get something for your mate to eat, she needs enough milk to feed the three little ones"
    "But the battle!" Sunshade protested lightly his tail lashed.
    "Great starclan! Sunshade the battles not until dusk! Go bring a rabbit to mossflare!" Fawnflight hissed. Sunshade grummbled and whipped around, snatching a rabbit up as he walked to the nursery. Rippleshadow blinked gratefully at fawnflight "thanks fawnflight" he murmured, and licked her ear "i mine as well train foxpaw for a while..." he turned his head towards the apprentices den and called out to foxpaw.
    "There coming!" A screech drowned out rippleshadows yowl and he snapped his gaze to moonstream, the pretty tabby bolting through the entrance, with brackenfern hard on her heels. A yowl silenced the clan, and flamestar appered from his den, the deputy tamorclaw at his flank "get ready to attak! Fawnflight rippleshadow sunshade scorchflare foxpaw and moonstream! Bring up the front line! The rest of you get ready!" The leader lept down from highrock and pushed his way towards rippleshadow. "Go for glazewing! Your our only hope!" He meowed when glazewing and a stream of warriors broke into camp. Imediantly, rippleshadow lept for glazewing, aiming square for the shoulders. Behind him, fawnflight had been pinned by hawkstep, and struggled underneath his weight. Sunshade had attaked a large black tom, and was cuffing him over both ears. "Rippleshadow!" A cry ceased from fawnflight as hawkstep gashed her throat. Rippleshadow had glazewing pinned and aimed a final blow to the head when her heard wails "flamestar and tamorclaw are dead!" He narrowed his eyes and cuffed glazewing hard over the ear "and dont come back!" He spaat after him as the warrior retreated, his attack force followed, leaving the camp silent and hung over with heavy grife. Fawnflight lay dead in the middle of camp, blood glistend on his pelt, "fawnflight!" Rippleshadow wailed and flung himself to the warriors side...sunshade looked up at the medicine cat, fogtip and asked "whos the new leader?" a warrior with grey fur arose to her paws, and rippleshadow reconized graytooth, flamestars mate "he said that rippleshadow will lead the clan..." she meowed and gazes turned to rippleshadow.
    "You heard them, your leader now, whats next?" Moonstream nudged rippleshadow to his paws, looking at him expectantly. With a deep breath, rippleshadow stood up "first things first...we honor the fallen, flamestar, a noble leader. Tamorclaw, a brave soul. And fawnflight....my sister" a moment of silence was held, and then sunshade looked up "deputy?" He pressed on. Rippleshadow sighed, deep in thought "sunshade...your a vauleable warrior....sunshade shall be new deputy for falconclan" sunshade looked in shock at his leader but aceptted it in a hurry "ill do my best...ripplestar" he bowed polietly, witvh surprised rippleshadow greatly.
    The next dawn.
    Ripplestar called to his clan "shall foxpaw be known as foxshade, shall she forever be loyal to the clan." And he lept down touching his nose to foxshades and then joined his mate, moonstream...

    THE END by HollowStar fawnflight

    "Great Starclan!!!" The shining white she-cat said, when her sister fawnpaw tripped for the third time. "You have to focus." The two sisters kept walking through the foest. "Whitepaw?" Fawnpaw asked. "W... what if we dont make it in time?" Whitepaw stopped to look at her golden brown sister. "We will"...... "all cats old enough to catch their own prey meet here beside the river." The leader of leafclan, HallowStar, called. Fawnpaw woke up startled. She looked over at her sleping sister Whitepaw. They both were in the apprentices den with the only other apprentice, Firepaw. "Guys. Is time." She stood up and scurried out into the cold air. She did not want to look weak and cold so she did not let her body shiver. "There they are." Said HollowStar. The three apprentices were called up to the river. As a traditon to become a warrior you bowed your head into the water, to show you aare not afraid. Then the leader gives you the warrior name and asks if you will honor it. The three apprentices bowed their heads in the mysteriously warm water for five seconds. Once they went up it was terribly cokd but they did not complain. Hollowstar said "whitepaw.your new name shall be whitefeather. Fawnpaw. Your new name will be fawnflight. Firepaw. Your new name shall be firetail. Will you honor your names and the powrr of your answers till the end of your life time?" They bowed their heads. The crowd of cats slcheered and went back to their duties. Fawnflight walked away from the crowd only to scent fireclan. There was only one though. She crept forward and lept behind a bush. There... was the strangest looking tresspasser of all time. He had long black fur but solid green eyes. He had giant whiskers and a small tail. The cat looked at her knowing she was there. He was a killer. She could tell by his eyes. It was a good day. For her it was... the end.......whitefeather walked out of camp. Her sister had been here. But where. Firetail was with her. Then they borlth saw fawnflight. But there was no heartbeat and no pulse in her neck. Somthing had terrified he to death. It was strange. The only scent was hers and the forests. They kept exploring. Firetail looked up ahead. Whitefeather saw what he saw. A big gap in the earth. They had to jump across. Firetail jumped but did not make it. Her was hokding on to the other side with his claws. He almost made it up...but it was like somthing shoved him hard. He fell down. Whtefeather knew it was his end. Three new warriors had an end on that day.

    Runningkit's Journey Part Four by Starrykit

    Four moons had passed since Runningkit met Darktalon. He had hunted for her and given her hunting and battle training until she could fight and hunt for herself, when she saw him no more.
    One day, as Runningkit began her day's journey, a rustle sounded in the grass to her right. She instantly crouched, on the defensive. It sounded again. The she-kit growled," Come out here and show yourself!"
    Two rustles. Then, a cat stepped out of the reeds. "My name is Fawnflight. You must be far from home."
    "Actually, I don't think I have one," Runningkit mumbled, her head low.
    "Well, I'm sure we could rectify that," replied Fawnflighht. "I will take you to GlitterClan with me."
    Runningkit jumped for joy. "Yay, that's where I've been trying to go all along!"
    They started out together on their journey. They were already on GlitterClan territory, Fawnflight explained, but the camp was in the opposite direction to where Runningit had been headed. Runningkit was glad to have a friend who knew the way.
    A quarter moon later, they were almost to GlitterClan when a rogue cat launched himself at Fawnflight. She stood no chance. He ripped her belly open, then delivered a killing bite to her neck.
    "Keep going, Runningkit! The same direction we were going! Glitterstar will help you!" she gasped with her last breath.
    "This is what becomes of those who befriend the cursed kit."
    "Firstclaw!" Runningit gasped. The MoonClan deputy who had kicked her out for her long legs!
    "Ah, I see you remember me. Come on, give your old dad a hug."
    "Dad? But..." Runningit was speechless.
    "I was Nightdance's mate. That is, before she killed herself grieving for you. Mouse-brain."
    Runningkit shook herself out of her stupor. "No! Dad or no dad, I won't have anything to do wih you!" And without a second glance, she rocketed between Firstclaw's legs and toward GlitterClan and safety.
    Firstclaw stared after her. "Cursed kit," he muttered under his breath, then turned away.
    The next sunrise showed Runningkit had cried herself to sleep the night before. She wearily caught a squirrel, then set out again.
    Not long after, she came upon two kits having a play-fight in the grass. "Hey," Runningkit called, "do you know the way to GlitterClan?"
    "Nope," replied one.
    "And we don't care, either," added the other.
    "I'm Runningkit, what are your names?"
    "Alonekit," said the first, a black she-kit with amber eyes.
    "And I'm her sister, Ignoredkit," added the second, a pale gray she-kit with eyes the same color as her sister's.
    "Where do you come from?" they asked together.
    "I was kicked out of MoonClan for my long legs."
    "Great StarClan!" Alonekit gasped. "That's a long way."
    "Your legs are the same length as ours," observed Ignoredkit, confused.
    "You're right!" Runningkit was shocked.
    I'M RUNNING OUT OF CHARACTERS, SO THAT'S ALL FOR NOW. CHECK OUT OF THE REST OF THE RUNNINGKIT CHRONICLES AT BORN TO RUN RES FOUR AND BELOW(IF THEY HAVEN'T MIXED THEM ALREADY)!

    A Path of Destiny

    ((It's Summer! xP)) Sparkstar exited his den, his fur bristling. Something was off. "Fawnflight?" He asked his deputy warily. "Is everything running smoothly?" "Oh yes, Sparkstar. Journeyclan is doing fine; prey is abundant and we have loads of kits, soon to be apprentices!" He purred, seeing her enthusiasim. "Well, if that's all." Fawnflight dipped her head, padding away. <br> ** Four Moons Later ** <br> "Great StarClan!" Mistyshadows exclaimed, her fur on end. She rushed into the medicine den, for she was the medicine cat, and grabbed the necessary herbs for kitting. Sparkstar paced nervously as his mate, Summerblossom, kitted. A wild screech came from within the den. "CREEKPAW, GET IN HERE," Mistyshadows yowled. Fawnflight padded over to him, restig her tail-tip on his shoulder. "Calm down, Mistyshadows knows what she's doing," she purred reassuringly. Redfern, a queen, pulled her kits close to her. The clan started murmuring in low tones, discussing the inevitable. Fawnflight's mate, Foxvalor, padded over to her. His eyes shone with worry, and he brought her way. Sparkstar dug his claws into the hard, frozen ground in anticipation. Finally... <br> ** Two Moons Later ** <br> Windykit and Applekit suckled greedily from Moondance. The dark brown she cat stared at the kits with loving affection in her silvery eyes. "Can we go outside now?!" Applekit squealed, resting her rosey colored paws on Moondance's womb. The queen purred gently. "Alright, but be careful. And no sticking your paws where they don't belong!" The kits were out the entrance before they could hear the end of her warning. Windykit crept up before her father, pouncing on his tail. "Surprise!" Sparkstar whirled around playfully, his amber eyes playful. "Windykit! Applekit!" The two sisters sat in front of him, their eyes attentive. "Listen to Moondance, she knows what's best." Inside, he still grieved for the loss of his mate, Summerblossom. Her kitting had gone horribly wrong, resulting in only two of her four kits surving. One of the toms had been still-born, and the other died within the first day. Summerblossom passed away due to greencough, shortly after she gave birth. But now he had two liveky kits to cherish. They tussled for a while, before Moondance called them back to the nursery. <br> ** A Moon Later ** <br> "FAWNSTAR! FOXVALOR!" The clan cheered for the new leader and deputy. When the kits were three moons old, Moondance woke up one day to find them missing. There was a large hole in the nursery's den wall. Fawnflight brushed it off, saying it was just a fox. Moondance suspected, but never spoke, that in fact, it had been Fawnflight who stole the kits. There was a tuft uf white speckled hair, and a whif of her scent. Two moons later, Sparkstar never returned from patrol. Redfern eventually found his body. It was strange... there was tufts of red fur in his claws. And he had a strange scent... One of betrayl. <br> A lesson Sparkstar should have learned is: Don't trust the ambitious. They will do ANYTHING to get their way... ((TUH-DAH!))

    I will be like her by blosomlight

    "I am sorry fawnpaw silverstream is dead" leafstar said. I couldnt believe what i just heard it couldnt be true my mother couldnt die she was deputy thus couldnt be happening to me. I sat down trying to hold back all my tears but i couldnt my mother just died." Are you okay fawnpaw" mosspaw asked fawnpaw. "Im okay i guess"fawnpaw replied. "Aleast your becoming a warrior today. "Ya i guess but i really wanted her to see me become a warrior" fawnpaw said. "All cats old enough to catch there own prey meet by the highstone" Leafstar said. "As some of you know silverstream died she was a good deputy a strong warrior we will never forget her. You could see the sadnest in all the cats eyes and they all looked at me." Since she is gone i need to appoint a new deputy and that will be Moonpath you are a loyal warrior and i trust you to become a good deputy for the clan". It would feel alot different without having silverstream as the deputy but we had to live through it. "We also have two new warriors mosspaw and fawnpaw will become warriors"Leafstar saud as we both walked up and bowed infront of her. "Mosspaw do you swear to uphold the warrior code"she asked mosspaw. "Yes i do" mosspaw replied to her. "Then from his day forward you shall be know as mossfur" leafstar said. "Mossfur mossfur mossfur" you could hear the cats saying from the crowd." Fawnpaw do you swear to uphold the warrior code"Leafstar asked me. "Yes i do" i replied. "Then from this day forward you shall be know as Fawnflight" Leafstar said and then she bowed and walked to her den." Fawnflight fawnflight fawnflight" you could hear the cats shouting." Great statclan i am so proud of you" Lilyleaf said she was silverstreams sister. As the days went by every cat was fine there was alot of prey and no cat was sick. But one day no one could find Moonpath when they searched in the woods they found her dead. She was attacked by badgers and died next to an oak tree. When they got back to camp Leafstar said "Since moonpath died i need to appoint a new deputy and i choose Fawnflight she is a good warrior and loyal to the clan she will be like her mother". There were some gasps in the cats voices no one ever mentions silverstream anymore so it was very different that she brought her up. But Fawnflight was to hapy she was going to be just like her mother. She walked up to Leafstar and said "Thank you Leafstar i will not disappoint you". "I know you wont" Leafstar replied to her. Fawnflight looked exactly like her mother did and now she was deputy she was exactly like her. The meetibg was over and Fawnflight was setting up patrols she was so proud of herself that she got this far. Her aunt lilyleaf was also proud of her. She also knew that her mother was proud of her in starclan she got to be a deputy alk by herself just like her mother did. In the future Fawnflight protected thunderclan from attacks badgers and anything else that was a threat. And when Leafstar died she became Fawnstar and she was the best keader that all the clans have ever seen. Everyone was proud if her and she was very much respected. But when she died if old age ut was very tragic to all the clans they lost a strong and powerful leader. But her generation goes on when she had kits lilykit silverkit cloudkit mountainkut bramblekit and leafkit. They were part of a prophevy and were strong leaders. They saaved the clans.but Fawnflight is strongly remember and lived and she always will be. Never forget her she us Fawnflight.

    The Last Dawn by Crystalfrost

    Fawnflight stretched her long limbs. "Good morning!" She meowed cheerfully. "Good morning!" Her brother Sunpelt said back. It was 6 moons after their warrior ceromony, and Fawnflight was as cheerful as ever. Until she remembered Mothpaw, their dead sister. She died mysteriously, and to this day no one knew how she died.
    Shaking memories from her head, Fawnflight padded to the fresh kill pile. In early greenleaf, the pile was really high.
    She picked out a rabbit for herself and settled near her best friend, Poppyflower. "How was the dawn patrol?" She asked. "Well, we picked up a strange scent, but we lost it." Poppyflower replied. "That's strange." "Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the high stone for a clan meeting!" Dawnstar called. "We-" She never finished her sentance, because right then they were attacked. "Rouges!" Fawnflight exclaimed. A grey pelted tom slashed her flanks, and she turned and clawed his back. Just then, a screech made everyone's heads turn. A rouge nocked Dawnstar's last life out of her. "Great Starclan! Dawnstar!" Someone wailed. The rouges then slipped into the shadows. "Everyone! Attention!" The deputy, Barkclaw, called. Dawnstar was just to announce that I was retiring to the elders." He sighed. "Dewfoot will have to decide." Dewfoot, the medicine cat, came up front. "Everyone, stay gathered. I must speak with Barkclaw." They went into Dawnstar's den, then came out a while later. "Cats of Windclan! The new leader is Spiderclaw." Spiderclaw, a loyal warrior, came up front. "Thank you for this honor. And my deputy is Sunpelt." Everyone cheered.
    Spiderclaw had gone to the Moonstone to get his 9 lives. While he was gone, the rouges struck again. This time, they killed Iceglaze, Dewfoot's apprentice. The time for action had come.
