The plot seems really good! The only problem I have is the more spelling and capitalization errors here. Now I get it, spelling sucks. But you may want to look over your story again for any spelling errors. Also, you shouldnt you abriviations like med cat. You should write out medicine cat, and if you dont know how just try your best. If you want to get away with miss-spelling you should also have good capitlization. I noticed throught your story proper nouns like Berrypaw and StarClan didnt have any capitlization when used in the middle of a sentence. It makes your story look a lot better with good capilization. Finally, and this is just a pet peeve of mine, I recomend that you put a space between a period and the start of quotations. Like . " instead of ." It just really salts my apples if you know what I mean. I hope you continue with your story!
Two cats stood inside a medo sized cave. The cave hade slippery moss and ivy, makeing it hard to ger atound. But more inportant was the pool in the center. A light blue crystal sat in the middle. The younger cat shuffled her paws inpatiently. Her brown tabby fur was priked with excitment;her blue eyes full of happyness. The older cat, a gray she cat with almost black tabby stripes, glared at the younger cat with her blind blue gray eyes."Berrypaw! Stop figeting! I know its hard when your getting your med cat name and all the others a late,but we will still do it!" The gray she cat stared intently at berrypaw, waiting for an anser. <br> Berrypaw finaly said,"sorry silentsong. Im just really excited."silentsong looks at the moon and mewes,"well you dont have to wait any longer. By the powers of starclan, i wish that this med cat will get her name. From this moment on, you shall now be known as berryscar." Pride bursted theugh her. She was a med cat! She toched noses with her old mentor befor doing the same with the stone. She fell asleep. She woke up to what seamed to be a battle. She sniffed the air. It was on there clan, Bayclan,borders. It seamed to be a battle between marshclan and bayclan vr. Mountain clan and rainbowclan! Suddenly, a brown and white she cat bursyed into the clearing. Mountainclan and Rainbowclan ran away while Marshclan and Bayclan cheered. Walking closer, she saw it was............maplekit? Befor she could think it theugh, she woke up. Grumbling, she paded out and headed torwards camp. Shed figure this out later......
