The deputy had been feeling ill as of late, and advised that she sleep without her adopted kittens. Fennelkit was upset by this, but knew that Orchidbloom would need her space. She didn't want to catch whatever her adopted mother had, no matter how much she loved her. Orchidbloom had sent out a border patrol, and now sat by herself at the edge of camp, thoughtfully gazing down at her paws.Silverstar 19:33, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

Creekstar was very worried about Orchidbloom. He had no idea what she was coming down with, it could be whitecough, which could turn into greencough in the blink of an eye. He didn't want Orchidbloom to get so ill... like Stoneblaze had. So now, he had been on a solo hunting trip, but now was carrying catmint back to camp. Just in case... and it wouldn't hurt at all to have some extra.

Meanwhile back in camp, Lavenderkit and Parsleykit played outside the nursery. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 21:46, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

"Hey, Orchidbloom?" Curiously, Risingsun poked his head out of his den, several dried scraps of herbs on his face. "Would you mind coming in my den to lend me a paw? I understand that you're feeling under the weather, but perhaps helping me with my herbs will distract your mind a bit?"Silverstar 22:35, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

Peridotpaw trained with Ashstorm near the apprentices den. Battle training. Pumpkinkit watched with intense amber eyes, merorizing their every move.

Meanwhile, Sparkpaw yanked the old, stinky,~gross, barfed-of bedding out of the nursery. She flicked her ear, now torn. The dawn patrol had incountered a CaveClan one on the border... it didn't go well at all. Jadefield had even been lost in the fight. Those pesky cats claimed that RockClan killed some dumb cat named Oilpelt. Well, RockClan blamed CaveClan for Blizzardheart! She had disappeared and hadn't been seen a days...Template:Patchfeather14/Sig

Hawthornkit lay around camp boredly, while Fennelkit glanced around nervously, worrying for Orchidbloom's sake.

Meanwhile the deputy hesitantly agreed to help her Medicine Cat. Slowly, she heaved herself to her paws, marching to his den. Something else glowed in his eyes...he was hiding something, she knew it.Silverstar 23:28, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

Parsleykit swatted Lavenderkit in the head with her tail. "Look!" she gasped, pointing with her nose to Hawthornkit, who didn't seem to be paying attention. "Let's give him a surprise!" Parsleykit squealed quietly and began to stalk quietly towards him. Lavenderkit watched with a frown. Did she mean the nice surprise or mean surprise? Meanwhile, Creekstar returned to camp with the catmint clamped tightly in his jaws. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:06, December 30, 2016 (UTC)

The little charcoal tomkit remain where he lay, idly glancing around at the clouds and passing birds in the sky.---- " something wrong, Risingsun?" Orchidbloom asked after a long moment of silence, blinking in confusion. The medicine cat hesitated before speaking what was on his mind.Silverstar 16:59, January 12, 2017 (UTC)

Parsleykit wiggled then sprang on top of Hawthornkit with a playful growl, Lavenderkit watched looking horrified for some reason. Meanwhile, Creekstar spotted Fennelkit and padded over, setting the catmint down. "Hey, Fennelkit. How are you feeling?" he asked, anxiously. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 17:07, January 12, 2017 (UTC)

Hawthornkit, extremely surprised, let out a screech that sounded like he was dying. And then, he went limp, like some pathetic prey animal.---- Fennelkkit gave a small shrug. "Ok, I guess. Is Orchidbloom ok?"---- Orchidbloom, shocked, awkwardly staggered away from Risingsun.Silverstar 01:27, January 29, 2017 (UTC)

"Aha! I caught him! I'll show my kill to the Clans, then feed him to the Elders!" Parsleykit said, not looking at all surprised at Hawthornkit's reaction, and she just smacked him in the face with her paw. "Dumb prey!" Lavenderkit watched, looking horrified. "He sounded like he's hurt."

Creekstar ripped his eyes away from Fennelkit and scanned the camp anxiously. "I don't know. I think so. She was fine when I left, she wasn't that sick, shee couldn't have gotten sick that fast..." he said, starting to pace. But Stoneblaze did. She was fine when I left that day but she was gone when I came back. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:55, January 29, 2017 (UTC)

The little tomkit remained limp, continuing to play dead. Maybe they'd just think he's dead, and wander off like nothing happened?---- Fennelkit frowned, leaning against her father with a heavy sigh. "I hope she's ok."Silverstar 03:07, January 29, 2017 (UTC)

Parsleykit seemed to get a bit annoyed that her smacking got no reaction. "Ooh, Parsleykit, I think you my have really killed him," Lavenderkit said, frozen in place. Oh no. They'd be murders, exiled from the Clan, forced to live as shaggy rogues. "Psst, I didn't really, I think," Parsleykit said. Pumpkinkit noticed the other kits were smacking Hawthornkit and stomped over. "Hey, there... what's go'in on?" she asked, unsheathing her claws and smiling.

Creekstar stopped pacing, then leaned down to nuzzle Fennelkit. "It's okay. I'm sure she's fine. I'll check on her, and bring Risingsun the catmint. She's in the medicine den still?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 14:06, January 29, 2017 (UTC)

Hawthornkit remained limp, his tongue sticking out like some pathetic piece of roadkill.---- Fennelkit let out a soft purr at her father's touch. "Yeah, I think she still is."Silverstar 22:42, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

"Rah!" Pumpkinkit snarled and threw herself on top of a startled Parsleykit, smacking her face. ---- Creekstar nodded. "I'll be back as soon as I can," he mewed before heading to the medicine den with catmint. "Can I come in?" he asked, voice muffled. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:55, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

Curious, Eclipsekit peered out of his nest, wondering why there was a bunch of noise. "What's going on?" The tomkit squeaked, almost excitedly.---- Fennelkit returned the nod, watching her father leave.---- Risingsun glanced over his shoulder. "Yes, you can come in."Silverstar 22:59, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

"Uhhhhhaahhh...!" Lavenderkit whimpered, watching her pal being beaten to the ground. "Why are you attacking my brother!?" Pumpkinkit screamed. "Never do it again!" she hollard, still smacking Parsleykit, who was trying to cover her face with her paws. Sparkpaw lifted her head from dozing and glared at the kits. They were so annoying.

Creekstar entered the den, dropping the herbs at Risingsun's paws. "I got these for you," he nodded at the tasty plants. He padded over to Orchidbloom, giving her ear a nuzzle. "How are you?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:20, February 26, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh, a fight!" Eclipsekit let out a squeal of excitement, clambering out of his nest to bounce up and down, while Hawthornkit continued to play dead. He was such a pathetic creature.---- "Thank you," Risingsun moved to his stores to leave the couple in peace, while he put the herbs away. Orchidbloom let out a soft purr in response. "I'm...alright." The deputy responded hesitantly. "How about you?"Silverstar 00:04, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Stop slapping me!" Parsleykit whined. Anger bubbled up in her and she threw Pumpkinkit off. Pumpkinkit landed on her side, dazed, before leaping back to her paws. The two she-cats circled each other, tesion sparking in the air. --- Lavenderkit winced and slinked over to Hawthornkit, giving him a soft poke. Was he d-dead? --- "That's good.. I'm fine," Creekstar meowed, relieved. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:39, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

There was still fighting, and therefore, this so-called "Hawthornkit" was unavailable. He'd make a horrible warrior for sure.---- Orchidbloom nodded slowly in response. "That's good, that's good...." She hadn't been bothered by Thunderblaze in a while, so that made it all even better. "Leader-y things going well?"Silverstar 01:43, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Lavenderkit frowned. She turned to her brother. "Is he okay? Should I get Risingsun?" ---- "Okay, break it up you fools." Sparkpaw stomped across the clearing and glared at the squabbling she-cats. "But she was hurting Hawthornkit!" Pumpkinkit growled, still eyeing Parsleykit angerily. "I was just trying to play!" ---- Creekstar purred. "Yeah, everything's been going great." What made everything better was that there had been no sign of Violetpetal; which was a huge relief. He for sure thought she was going to be lurking around, trying to murder his family. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:54, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Curious, Eclipsekit crept forward and prodded Hawthornkit's nose. "I think he fainted from fright." The little pointed tomkit gave a small shrug.---- A small smile crept onto Orchidbloom's features. "That's good to hear, it sure sound stressful. That's the fun part about just being deputy." She stuck her tongue out playfully.Silverstar 01:59, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"I don't care what happened, just shut up," Sparkpaw growled. "Fine," both she-cats said at the same time, glares locked. --- "Oh. I think that's bad? Don't we need to throw water of something in order to wake him?" Lavenderkit asked, anxiously looking around for a puddle. ---- "How's being deputy been?" Creekstar asked, feeling relaxed yet still anxious. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:05, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Eclipsekit shrugged. "Eh, maybe he just needs sleep?" Just as he said that, Hawthornkit popped up and ran out of the nursery before anyone could attack him again.---- "Fun, I suppose. Still a lot of work, but I like being kept busy."Silverstar 02:10, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh, I guess he's okay," Lavenderkit mewed, sounding happier. Sparkpaw trotted away with her tail held high. Pumpkinkit gave Parsleykiy one last nasty look before hurrying after Hawthornkit. Parsleykit hopped over to her friend. "Can you believe that? I totally did nothing wrong." ---- "Great!" Creekstar purred. "Are you busy right now?" he asked, glancing around the den. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:18, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Eclipsekit nodded. "Yeah, guess he's not dead after all."---- Orchidbloom gave a small shrug of her shoulders. "Patrols are already out, and I'm finished with helping Risingsun. Kits don't seem to need me...I think I'm free."Silverstar 02:22, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"I guess not," Lavenderkit shrugged. Hollymask padded over, her fur ruffled. "Who's fighting?" she demanded sleepily. ---- "Would you care to go hunting? Maybe in the river so you can save me from drowning? I'm a really good swimmer." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:26, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Eclipsekit looked up at the sleepy she-cat. "Hawthornkit and Parsleykit, and then Pumpkinkit as well. Except, Hawthornkit died for a bit, but then he came back and ran away."---- Orchidbloom twitched her whiskers in amusement. "Aww, you want me to save you?" She walked a distance away, glancing back at her mate. "Hm, we'll have to see about the whole 'saving part'."Silverstar 02:30, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh, well that's nice," Hollymask yawned. "I'm just glad you didn't get hurt," she added nuzzling both kits ears. --- Creekstar bounded after Orchidbloom, paws light. He spotted Fennelkit and stopped to tell her he and Orchidbloom were going hunting.Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:34, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Awww, mom, you're getting your she-cat cooties all over me!" Eclipsekit squeaked in complaint.---- Fennelkit nodded slowly, watching as her father left camp with Orchidbloom. Swimming didn't sound very fun, she didn't understand why Orchidbloom loved it so much.Silverstar 02:36, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask let out an amused mrrow before leaving the den. She padded towards the medicine den to pay Risingsun a visit. "Knock, knock." --- Creekstar skipped through the grass like a kit, heading for the river, stopping every now and then to try batting a beetle. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:40, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Risingsun turned around, worried that someone was injured. But the Medicine Cat's features quickly softened at the sight of Hollymask, and he let out a warm purr. "How're things in the nursery?"---- Orchidbloom pelted after Creekstar, a mischievous grin on her muzzle. Once he stopped to battle a beetle, she dropped down low, crept up on him, and pounced.Silverstar 02:43, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask trotted over and rubbed her muzzle along Risingsun's cheek. "Everything's great! They're getting so big so fast! Before we know it, they'll be moving to the apprentices' den." ---- Creekstar let out a surprised squeak, rolling and batting Orchidbloom playfully. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:47, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Risingsun let out a soft groan. "Ugh, they make me feel old..." He purred at her touch before glancing down at her and stepping back. "How're things going for you?"---- Orchidbloom nipped at Creekstar gently, her eyes sparking with energy.Silverstar 02:49, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"A bit boring. But good. What about you?" Hollymask purred. --- Creekstar struggled to his paws, tripping over himself, silently challenging Orchidbloom to race with a lash of his tail and crouching low. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:52, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Every day's interesting as a Medicine Cat," Risingsun responded with a small sigh.---- With a playful growl, Orchidbloom charged ahead.Silverstar 02:55, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Have you gotten any breaks?" Hollymask asked, sounding concerned. She didn't want him to overwork himself! "Have you had any kits who have an interest in being your apprentice?" --- Creekstar bunched his muscles, then sprang, racing long strides. He was famous for his speed! He could totally win! Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:00, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"No, but there aren't always ill cats." Risingsun pointed out with a small smile. "Of course cats are interested, but that doesn't matter, StarClan selects my successor, not myself."---- Orchidbloom blinked in surprise at his speed, and attempt to push herself harder.Silverstar 03:03, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh. Has StarClan said anything?" Hollymask asked. "Maybe one of our kits will be a medicine cat?" she purred at the thought. ---- Creekstar carried on running, slowly to a fast trot when the sparkles of the river came into view, panting heavily. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:09, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"I wish one of our kits could become Medicine Cat, but I haven't received a sign." The smoke medicine cat frowned. How he'd love it if his son or daughter succeeded his position in the Clan.---- Orchidbloom sauntered after her mate, pricking her ears. "What's wrong, Creekstar? Getting old?" She let out a soft purr, twitching her whiskers in amusement.Silverstar 03:13, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask ran her paw along the floor. "Oh well. Maybe they could help you anyway? Just with small things, like picking out old leaves. I'm sure they'd love it." --- Creekstar gave Orchidbloom an amused glare, still panting. "I think I'm dying," he said, before he gave up and plopped down to rest for a minute. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:18, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"I'm sure they could," Risingsun let out a warm purr at the thought of their kits. "I need to bond with them somehow, right?"---- Orchidbloom swatted at him with her paw gently. "You can't get away from me that easy."Silverstar 03:22, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Yes. They can come here whenever you like," Hollymask purred. --- "I think I'm going to drag myself the rest of the way," Creekstar decided, lazily trying to pull himself but failing. "I think I might be stuck." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:25, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Risingsun's paws twitched in excitement. "Do you think they can come in here tomorrow?"---- "Do I really have to carry you like the kittens in the nursery?" Orchidbloom asked with a small smirk.Silverstar 03:28, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Of course! I'll have them go to bed early tonight so they'll have all kinds of energy." --- "No, no. I think I can get up now," Creekstar mumbled, raising to his paws, feeling light-headed. He steaded himself, feeling better. "Okay!" he said, marching onward. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:32, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

"Great, thank you so much." Risingsun purred loudly, gently nuzzling his mate.---- "Don't tempt me to push you in, if you're trying to make up excuses to not swim with me."Silverstar 03:35, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask purred, breathing in her mates scent. "I'm going to go let them know," she said stepping back. ---- "Of course I'm not!" Creekstar mewed, breaking into a trot again until he was on the shore of the river. "I think I won," he cooed to himself. He scanned the waters for fish. He still disliked the river but it wasn't as horrible as before. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 05:26, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Risingsun smiled. "Good, I can't wait."---- Orchidbloom slowly rolled her sea-blue eyes. "Yes, yes, of course you won." She was used to toms by now, always feed their egos. Slowly, she cast him a side grin. "But can you beat me in swimming?"Silverstar 00:09, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask left the den, waving her tail good-bye and hurried over to the nursery. "Kits! I have news!" ---- Pumpkinkit caught up to Hawthornkit. "Did that creature hurt you?" she fretted, sniffing his pelt for any cuts. ---- Creekstar smiled. "Uh, I think you know the answer to that. You are the best swimmer in all the Clans." His ears twitched when a breeze carried a scent towards him. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig

Eclipsekit raised his head before bouncing excitedly. "Oh, oh, are we getting a pet rock?!"---- Hawthornkit shrugged. "I just played dead. I learned it from a stick." He (unfortunately) said this very proudly.---- Orchidbloom let out a warm purr. "And I pride in that." She paused. "...Something wrong?"Silverstar 00:52, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"Even better!" Hollymask mewed, waving her tail. "Tomorrow, you're going into the medicine den to help Risingsun with herbs." ---- "Wow. That's really impressive," Pumpkinkit said sarcasticly, looking annoyed. "You're lucky I beat her down for you." ---- "I..." Creekstar trailed off. It couldn't really be, could it? It had been so long... "It's probably nothing." ---- Meanwhile, Creekstar was wrong and Nightshade was padding beyond a hill upwind to the pair. "Ugh, I'm lost again aren't I? I swear this is RockClan territory, it smells like it. Ugh I forgot what it looked - Ow! stupid rabbit hole!" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:00, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

No pet rock? Awww. Curiously, Eclipsekit tilted his head as he glanced up at his mother. "Do we get to eat the herbs?"---- Hawthornkit let out a soft snort. "She would've gotten bored after a while, anyways. And if she didn't, it isn't like she would've been capable of killing me with some slaps."---- Orchidbloom nodded slowly. "Alright then," she responded over her shoulder as she slipped into the river.Silverstar 01:06, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"No. You could get sick if you ate them," Hollymask mewed briskly. "I'm telling you now so that you aren't running around all night. You need to go to bed early." Lavenderkit glanced excitedly towards the medicine den. Hollymask was going to let them trample around in there tomorrow? That sounded great. "Wait - go to bed early?" she mewed, dismayed.

Creekstar followed Orchidbloom in, thoughts clouding his head. What if it really was Nightshade? The whole Clan thought he and the other members of RockClan who disappeared in the storm were dead. After all this time, was it really him? Maybe the air was playing tricks on him. --- Nightshade walked over the hill and stood on the top, outlined by the sun. I look pretty great right now, don't I. Wait are those cats swimming? he thought squinting down at the stream. Ew. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:13, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"Ewwwww, only super tiny and super young kits go to bed early!" Eclipsekit whined with a small frown.----Orchidbloom paddled around the stream, glancing over at Creekstar curiously. He still seemed...distant. "I'm not fully believing you on that one, Creekstar, I know you well."Silverstar 01:17, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Lavenderkit murmured agreement with her brother. Hollymask rolled her eyes. "Well, if you go to bed early tonight, you'll get up at the crack of dawn like warriors." ---- Creekstar flicked his ears as he paddled a circle around Orchidbloom. How did she always seem to know when something was wrong? "I thought I smelled Nightshade... but after all this time could it really be him?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:21, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Eclipsekit complained with a long groan. "Ugh, fiiiiiine!"---- Orchidbloom tilted her head slowly. "Well, you haven't been able to find his scent in moons, yet you can suddenly recognize it. I don't mean to get your hopes up or anything but..." she hesitated slowly. "...but there's always a chance it could be him."Silverstar 01:24, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Lavenderkit ran her tail along the ground. It she could beat the warriors at waking up earliest... She bolted into the nursery and curled up, willing herself to sleep. She wanted to beat them! Maybe she could wake everyone! --- Creekstar stared at the water around him. "Maybe we can check out the area?" --- Nightshade was at the bottom of the hill now, trotting closer to the stream, low to the ground and wary.Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:28, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Eclipsekit sulked over to his nest. Maybe if he just pulled an all-nighter, rather than sleep and wake up early?---- "I'd be fine with that," Orchidbloom responded softly.Silverstar 01:33, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar began to swim to shore when Nightshade burst out of some heather, eyes bright. "Creekfrost! Orchidbloom!" the young tom exclaimed, plunging into the stream and swimming over, wincing at the gross feel of water. Creekstar was stunned to silence, staring at his son. "N-Nightshade! You're back!" he finally managed to stammer. He hadn't been wrong then! It was Nightshade's scent! He swam over, resting his chin on Nightshade head, purring. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:41, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom blinked in suprise, shocked that the tom had really returned. She had no doubt that he was still alive, but she thought he'd left the Clan to live some place else. "It's good to see you alive and well!"Silverstar 01:50, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"Hi, Orchidbloom!" Nightshade greeted her, before going back to shore and shaking himself off. "Sorry I just appeared out of no where and flew into the stream. I was just so excited it was you!" he mewed blinking. Creekstar padded out of the water. "That's fine, that's fine..." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:53, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom slid out of the water as well, shaking her pelt before settling down to wash the water from her fur. She'd probably go for another swim after she sent out the dusk patrols; Nightshade and Creekstar needed to catch up first.Silverstar 01:55, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

After talking for a few moments, Nightshade decided he was ready to go back to camp. "Are you coming Orchidbloom?" Creekstar asked, glancing over at his mate. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:58, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh, yes, I'm coming." Orchidbloom called after the black tom, rising to her paws before trotting after Creekstar with her tail waving.Silverstar 02:00, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar led the way into camp, Nightshade following slowly behind. Nightshade stopped dead in his tracks when he saw Fennelkit, his eyes wide. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:03, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Fennelkit was attempting to wrestle a squirrel from the fresh kill pile, to surprise Orchidbloom with a nice meal once she returned to camp. She was pretty proud at how much she had grown, she'd be apprenticed soon! (ithinkineedtoaddhertotheceremonylist)---- Orchidbloom ducked into camp as well, glancing around to make sure the kits she had adopted were causing no trouble. They were all getting pretty big now.Silverstar 02:09, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw sat off to one side of the camp watching Nightshade, she had gotten bigger since she'd last seen her father and lately she'd been trying to spend time with her grandfather - whom had been too busy to even tell her a story. The creamy-white apprentice sat her paw down as she pushed a pebble to roll a few inches. Was it really a big deal that Fennelkit was here? (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:23, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade blinked. Was he dreaming? He shook his head, when a she-cats head appeared in his head. His daughter. He hadn't stopped thinking about her for a day. He opened his eyes, glancing around wildly until his eyes fell on her creamy pelt. "Mothkit!" he mewed, hurrying over. "You've gotten so big!" Everything else he had been thinking about melted away. "I've missed you so much!" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 15:38, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw glanced up with her silvery-blue eyes into her father's heterochromatic blue and amber ones. "I missed you too, but uh my name is Mothpaw now." She told him sheepishly curling her plumy tail around her now clean paws. The apprentice glanced around camp, her mentor happened to be the quietest one there was. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:44, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"That's great!" Nightshade purred, nuzzling Mothpaw's head. "I'm so sorry I missed your ceremony. I promise I'll never disappear again." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 15:47, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw pressed against her father's dark pelt, her creamy-white one like the moon to a dark sky compared to Nightshade's black one. "What happened to you exactly?" She asked, pulling back with her ears flattened just a bit. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 16:51, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

(i'm assuming heather and night stayed together during the storm; you can remove this post if not, brams) "Remember that big snowstorm? I went out hunting in it. It was a dumb thing to do. I got lost, but I found Heathersun in it too. I should go get her, I split up with her to hunt," Nightshade mewed in a rush. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 17:32, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw nodded. "I think I saw her head into the Warriors den while you were chatting," the apprentice said. Her silvery-blue gaze going to the apprentices den as well. A nap sure did sound pleasing, as it seemed her mentor didn't want to do much. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 17:37, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade nodded, pelt prickling when he realized how many eyes were on him. He suddenly felt very small around so many cats. He'd been away from the Clan so long, it felt strange. "What's happened while I was away?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 17:43, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"Nothing really, Orchidbloom had her litter but they weren't successful." She said sadly. The creamy-white molly glancing towards the queen who was so protective of Fennelkit. "That's why she adopted Fennelkit." (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 20:08, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh, yes, Fennelkit," Nightshade meowed. Okay, so he wasn't crazy. "Was she given a second chance...?" he asked, remembering how Creekfrost had told him how he and Stoneblaze had both been given second chances to live. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 20:11, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw wanted to answer with sarcasm as since Fennelkit had gotten here her grandfather had just forgotten about her, but what could Creekstar say that was his own daughter. "I guess.." she said shrugging before rolled onto her back letting the sun wash over her stomach. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 20:13, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade nodded. "I should go talk to her since I'm not going crazy. I'll see you later," he murmured, lightly tapping her shoulder with his tail before heading over to Fennelkit. ---- Creekstar meanwhile sat back and watched his two kits. He couldn't believe Nightshade had come back... Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 20:17, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

The creamy-white apprentice yawned before she decided to go for a walk. Maybe it'd do her some good. Mothpaw brushed past the dark leader making her way out of the entrance her silvery-blue gaze going to Fennelkit one last time. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 20:22, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar glanced over to Mothpaw as she walked by. He'd been meaning to take her hunting to see how well her skills were coming along. He turned to Orchidbloom, murmuring quietly to her. "We can go back to the stream later, I need to see how Mothpaw's training has been doing." he glanced back at Mothpaw."Hey, Mothpaw," he called, rising to his paws. "I've been meaning to take you hunting, to how your skills are, but I haven't gotten a chance. I can take you now, if you're not busy," he mewed, glancing back to Nightshade. They could talk later. He looked busy at the moment anyway. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 20:26, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw turned and couldn't help but let a small smile through. "Yeah sure. I've got time." She told the black leader. She turned her gaze from Nightshade and Fennelkit as she walked out of camp with Creekstar. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 20:35, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar padded slowly beside Mothpaw. He gazed out at the moor, spotting a few rabbits in the distance. Perfect! "What do you scent?" ---- Snapdragon returned to camp with Hazelriver leading her. She looked distant and ruffled, while Hazelriver looked very pleased. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 21:44, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Fennelkit's ears pricked as her brother approached, but flattened as he swerved for some other cat. Did he not care that she had been dead, only to suddenly return? All of those other kits, they had been alive for moons, never to taste the bitter lack of life in StarClan. They had all been given mercy, and she, she hadn't. She had to suffer in StarClan for moons, never smelling the sweet smell of real flowers, seeing the beautiful sunsets in the real world, hearing the voice of her father and family. For moons, never, and she had been scarred for life. Yet she was tossed away after finally returning, like some unwanted old bedding.---- Orchidbloom nodded and cast her mate a sweet smile. "That's fine with me," secretly, she was thankful that they had returned, she was feeling extremely exhausted. They didn't even swim much, why so tired? Then again, she was getting older now.Silverstar 00:33, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Fennelkit! You got a second chance?" Nightshade mewed, sniffing Fennelkit's pelt. She smelled real. "I thought I was seeing things..." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:15, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Yeah, I did." The mottled kitten replied quietly with a small, forced smile.Silverstar 01:28, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"That's great! I'm so happy! -What's wrong?" Nightshade said, bouncing on his paws before frowning and becoming serious, dumbly unaware of the problem. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:33, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Nothing, nothing's wrong." Her response was silent once more, and she gave a small shrug of her tiny shoulders.Silverstar 01:35, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Come on, Fennelkit. You used to tell me everything! You still can!" Nightshade pushed it. "Did I do something?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:40, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"I said I'm fine, nothing's wrong." Fennelkit repeated before stepping back slowly.Silverstar 01:58, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Okay then..." Nightshade said, his ears flat with dismay. Why was Fennelkit acting so... odd? Did he smell bad or something? "How has everything been going for you?" he asked, glancing around, his eyes bright and hopeful. If Fennelkit got a second chance, then could Stoneblaze gotten a third..? Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:55, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Fine, everything's been fine." The she-kit replied hastily before looking away, as if she was searching for some sort of distraction.Silverstar 02:57, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade scented the air, picking up zero trace of his mothers scent. Disappointed, he asked, "Who's taking care of you now?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:01, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Orchidbloom," the response was, once again, quick and to the point, and without making any eye-contact with her brother.Silverstar 03:04, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh cool," frustation made Nightshade flick his tail. "Are you busy? I can go..." he glanced over towards Orchidbloom. Maybe she would know what was wrong with Fennelkit. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:07, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Yeah, I am busy." Fennelkit narrowed her eyes as she said this, almost in an accusing manner. She then quickly turned tail and marched off. Although now apprentice-aged, the molly was still the size of a kitten.Silverstar 03:09, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade gazed after his sister, feeling a little angry. Why was she being so mean? Wasn't she happy they'd be together again? He slowly padded over to Orchidbloom. "Hi. Are you busy right now?" he asked, frowning. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:12, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom glanced up at Nightshade tiredly, but slowly shook her head. "No, patrols are all set, so I've nothing to do. What's up?" Was something wrong with Creekstar?Silverstar 03:15, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade settled next to her. "It's Fennelkit. I don't know why, but I think she's mad at me. I thought she'd be happy to see me again but she just seemed like she wanted to get away from me," he blurted out. Was she sick? Did he do something? Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:17, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom gave a small shrug. "She's a growing she-cat, Nightshade. We're moody." She couldn't help but to give a small twitch of amusement. "Sometimes, the most simple things set us off, and you won't have a clue why."Silverstar 03:19, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade nodded, feeling better. He remembered he got angry at his apprentice friend Pepperpaw caught more prey then he did, Nightpaw, at the time, wouldn't even look at him. "Oh, that must be it. You're really wise," he gave her a small bow. "So how's everything? Anything happen since I got lost?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:24, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Quite a lot," Orchidbloom said with a small sigh. "Your father's leader, I'm his deputy, and his original deputy, Frostfire, fled the Clan because she was in love with StormClan's deputy. I had a bunch of...personal drama with my former mate, Creekstar was stalked by an obsessive she-cat who took his first life..." She drew in a sharp breath. "Too much happened."Silverstar 03:29, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Nightshade stared at Orchidbloom with huge eyes. Why didn't Creekfr-star mention any of this!? "W-wow... that is a lot.. I've missed a ton!" he wiped the shocked look away from his face. "All fine now though?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:35, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom nodded before an almost dreamy look grew on her face. "Oh yes, everything's lovely now. I have the greatest mate, even if I haven't been able to...successfully have kittens of my own. To make up for it, I have a handful of adopted youngsters. We've lost a lot of Queens lately." -- Silverwhisker

"Ooh, poor kits!" Nightshade's large ears flattened as he thought of the kits, motherless. He knew how that felt. "At least they've got you," he brightened. "So who's you're new mate?" he asked. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:43, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom cleared her throat awkwardly. "...I'm not sure as to how you'd respond. Maybe it's best if you find out on your own, rather than having me tell you up-front."Silverstar 03:46, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Okay, cool," Nightshade mewed, flecking his ears. "Anyway, congragulations on becoming deputy!" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:49, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Thank you." The pale tabby responded in a soft purr before waving the tom off with her tail. "Alright, you best run along now and leave me to my sleep. I'm certain a lot of cats are waiting to catch up with you."Silverstar 03:52, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Yeah," Nightshade mewed, getting up. "See you later!" he added over his shoulder, waving his tail before disappearing into the warriors den. --- Lavenderkit squirmed around in her nest, huffing and puffing. She was too excited to sleep! Maybe her noise would annoy someone and she could talk the night away with them. Well, maybe argue. ---- Pumpkinkit batted a feather lazily with her paw, picturing it catching on fire, waving her paws around it, pretending to make the fire dance around. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:56, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

The deputy slowly rested her head on her paws to take a nice cat-nap in a faint patch of sunlight, absorbing whatever warmth she could get.---- Fennelkit continued to sulk in the nursery, ignoring all of the other kits.Silverstar 03:58, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

After talking with his friends for a few moments, Nightshade trotted out of the warriors den and headed out of camp to find Heathersun. ---- Sparkpaw lapped her tufty fur watching Peridotpaw from the corner of her eye, who was practicing pouncing. They're assighment was coming up, so they had to get ready. Sparkpaw honestly didn't know what the fuss was about. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 14:32, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw nodded and took a slight step forward with her left paw lifted off the ground scenting the air. "I smell.." she paused for a minute. Was that rabbit or quail? Taking another step forward she kept walking forward before finally stopping. "Well a bit farther out on the moor there's a ton of quail." She told Creekstar. "But not far from here I smell some rabbit." (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:23, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar scented the air again, picking up the strong scent of quail. "Good job, I couldn't even smell the quail," he pointed with his muzzle towards the rabbits in the distance. "Have you hunted by driving the prey to another cat yet?" he asked, planning on doing just that. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 15:50, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

The creamy-white apprentice shook her head. "Not yet, Caninefang hadn't gotten around to taking me out much." She replied, with a swift lash of her tail. "I've mainly focused on the easy hunting, by myself." She told her grandfather. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 16:56, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar nodded, eyes narrowed. "Okay. Today I'm teaching you how to do that. First we're going to stalk closer to the rabbits, then you're going to split away from me and make a wide circle around them. After that, you're going to scar the rabbits, so they'll come running into my claws. If we're lucky, we may be able to catch both," he murmured, already stalking towards their prey, low to the ground, hoping the golden grass would hide his black coat. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 17:31, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

After a short nap, Orchidbloom retired into the Nursery to check on her adopted litters. She spotted Fennelkit sitting along, and looking slightly upset, so she seated herself beside the small molly. "...Are you excited about becoming an apprentice, Fennelkit?"Silverstar 02:17, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Ashstorm padded out of the warriors den, yawning. He looked around for Cherrywhisker. --- Snapdragon sat outside the warriors den, staring thoughtfully at her paws. --- Hazelriver had a shrew and was taking tiny bites every now and then. He hadn't been his usually cheerful self since his fight with his sister, and her leaving the Clan. For a murderer. Most of his anger had died away now, replaced by sadness. How was she doing? Was she still mad at him? Were her and that dude mates? How was StormClan treating her? Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:17, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw nodded and followed his suit, her long, thin, creamy-white tail swishing along side the grass - the grass that blended rather greatly with her pelt. The apprentice then shot forward driving herself away from Creekstar, she was so focused on the rabbit that she hadn't seen the huge fox trap in front of her.

Ivyfoot sat just outside the nursery, despite no longer being a queen she kind of missed it. Its where she got to hide from Toadstep but she had faced him and now they were broken up. She hadn't really talked to their son, Nightpaw, about it yet but she would soon. Hopefully, Toadstep would leave both her and Nightpaw alone. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:35, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar spotted the fox trap, then veered away from the rabbits, racing over to the cream apprentice. "Mothpaw, look out!" --- Hazelriver shifted his paws. Should he traval to StormClan to check on Frostfire? He'd probably just be chased away... if he even made it there with his stupid leg. He growled loudly, giving his twisted leg a hateful glare. I'd be better off without it! I should just chew it off! Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 15:49, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw had barely heard Creekstar's call but with a weak leap she was able to escape the trap - the same was not said for her tail tip. The apprentice gave a hateful hiss at the trap and was horrified to see Creekstar racing towards her. With quite a noticeable look she could tell there were hidden traps everywhere and Creekstar was headed for one.

Ivyfoot lurched forward when Toadstep walked into camp, his rotten yellow gaze meeting hers. She gave him the best glare she could conjure. Maybe that would help with him leaving her and her son alone. She turned with a sharp tail lash and headed towards the apprentices' den to check on Nightpaw. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 16:56, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar's front paw thudded onto the ground, and in a blink a sharp pain shot through him as a trap clamped down. He let a furious hiss of pain and tried to tug it out, but the more he struggled, the tighter it got.

Hazelriver tucked his paws under him, covering his leg with his tail so he wouldn't have to look at it. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 18:25, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw stared in horror as she scent of blood filled her nose. She raced to Creekstar tugging on the trap weakly. How do I remove it?! She thought frantically before spotting a semithick stick and grabbing it. She began to work to pry it apart. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:20, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar watched Mothpaw work through the haze of pain. What if he couldn't get out? He had never been caught in a foxtrap before, nor had he ever seen someone else. "Maybe you should get help...?" he weakly suggested. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 17:28, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw shook her head and gave a victorious growl as the fox trap finally opened. The sun was slowly sinking now in the sky. How long had they been gone? Surely only a few hours? The creamy-white apprentice threw the stick down before looking down at his mangled paw. He couldn't walk with it. She knew she'd struggle getting him back to camp but that was their best bet. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 20:25, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar gasped with pain when the trap loosened. He glanced around, spotting more traps. He frowned. He needed to get back to camp as soon as he could to warn them. His gaze landed on Mothpaw, giving her a grateful nod. "Thank you, Mothpaw. You did well. You probably saved one of my lives!" Lifting his injuried paw off the ground, he began to limp as fast as he could toward camp, stumbling and tired. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 21:02, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

The mottled kitten gave a small shrug of her delicate shoulders. Orchidbloom frowned as she received no verbal response from Fennelkit. "I can assure you that it'll be fun. Tough, but fun and worth it in the end, dear."---- Eclipsekit finally managed to fall asleep. Meanwhile, Hawthornkit trotted outside of the nursery, avoiding it at all costs. He didn't want to get slapped again.Silverstar 15:14, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

After a long walk, Creekstar and Mothpaw returned to camp. "Risingsun?" he called quietly. Blood still dripped from his paw and it throbbed badly. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 15:20, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

Risingsun blinked as he poked his head out of his den before his eyes widened in surprise. "Hurry into my den, make sure you don't put any pressure on that paw."Silverstar 20:22, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar obeyed, limping into the medicine den on three legs. He sat inside the den, forcing himself not to lay down. "Is it bad?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 20:56, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

Risingsun hesitated. "It's a bit bloody to tell, might've broken a few bones. What happened?" He asked as he dove into his storages.Silverstar 21:02, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

"Me and Mothpaw were hunting. There were foxtraps everywhere! I didn't notice one and stepped in it," Creekstar replied, remembering he had to report this to the Clan. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 21:11, March 4, 2017 (UTC)

With some wet moss, Risingsun gently cleaned Creekstar's paw before neatly wrapping it thickly in cobwebs, applying herbs beforehand. "Might have a few tiny broken bones in it, I can't really tell because they're so small. Can never fix them either." Eventually, he finished with a firm nod. "Get a good night's rest, keep weight off that foot, and make sure you have the Clan discard of those traps, I don't want any more patients with leg injuries."Silverstar 01:56, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar nodded then paused for a moment. "Is it okay if I preform a few cereimones? I can tell the Clan about the foxtraps then, too." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:21, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

The Medicine Cat nodded. "Of course that's fine, so long as you're cautious."Silverstar 02:23, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar nodded. "Thanks, Risingsun." He padded out of the den and went straight for the highrock. He decided to stay on the ground instead of leaping onto it. "Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather!" Once the Clan was gathered, he began his report on the foxtraps, lifting his ravaged paw to show them the damage, as well as giving Mothpaw a shout out for helping to free him. "On a lighter note, I have some apprentice ceremiones to preform." He whisked his tail. "Parsleykit, Juncokit, Spottedkit, Galekit, and Fennelkit. Please step forward," he mewed, his proud blue eyes resting on his daughter. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:28, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom had been grooming Fennelkit until the mottled kitten's fur was glossy. She was still silent the entire time, not even bothering to protest when she was groomed. Fennelkit now stepped forward, remaining silent, while Galekit beamed. Her fur was also well-groomed, except she had groomed herself, as Raccoonmask...well, she still couldn't find him.Silverstar 02:31, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"You have reached the age of six moons and are now ready to be apprenticed. From this moment on until you recieve your warrior names you will be known as Parsleypaw, Juncopaw, Spottedpaw, Galepaw, and Fennelpaw. Your mentors will be Cherrywhisker, Frozenwind, Sunshadow, Hazelriver, and Cloudfrost in that order," Creekstar meowed, feeling a prick of worry when he realized Fennelpaw wasn't acting like her usual self. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:36, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Cloudfrost stepped forward, the achromatic she-cat squinting against the painful sunlight as she leaned down to touch her nose to Fennelpaw's. The new apprentice gently touched her nose, but didn't show much excitement. Was she ill? Cloudfrost glanced over at her brother as he did the same. Was Sunshadow capable of being a good mentor? Meanwhile, Galepaw was bouncing all over the place, ready to smash some badgers.Silverstar 02:38, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Hazelriver was very surprised that his name had been called. How could he mentor someone with a burden of a leg? He limped over to Galepaw and touched her nose, his eyes stern. "Meeting dismissed!" Creekstar mewed. He decided to wait for Fennelpaw and Cloudfrost to talk before asking her what was wrong. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:43, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Galepaw looked up at Hazelriver, curiously tipping her head to the side. "Sooo, what am I supposed to do?"---- Fennelpaw shifted slowly, while Cloudfrost grinned down at her. "Go and make your nest, Fennelpaw."Silverstar 02:46, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"You're making your nest first. After that we'll tour the territory," Hazelriver said, trying to sound commanding but failing pretty bad. ---- Parselypaw eagerly touched her nose to Cherrywhisker's.Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:49, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"Ok." Galepaw abruptly turned and marched off to the Apprentice's den to gather her bedding, while Fennelpaw did the same. The mottled apprentice, however, was much less enthusiastic.Silverstar 02:52, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar padded over to Fennelpaw, hoping he wasn't disturbing her. "Hey, Fennelpaw," he purred. "What's wrong?" Was she upset about being an apprentice? That was odd...Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:54, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"Nothing, everything's fine." Fennelpaw responded quietly, busying herself with the moss as she built her nest, refusing to make eye-contact with her father.Silverstar 02:57, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

(ayooo something to do with one of my characters :D) Frozenwind padded forward, and touched his nose with Juncopaw's firmly. ---- Heathersun watched from the back of the crowd. She hadn't seen one of these things in a while... great StarClan, it was good to be back after that blizzard. --look me in the eye 05:39, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"I know there's something wrong. If you told me now you'd probably feel better," Creekstar persisted. ---- Nightshade watched Fennelpaw be apprenticed proudly. She'd be in the warriors den before he knew it! Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 13:25, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"I already told you, dad, I'm fine." Fennelpaw replied as her voice rose with edginess, turning her back on her dark-pelted father.Silverstar 18:00, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

"If you say so. Remember to listen to Cloudfrost," he mewed, waving his tail farewell. Creekstar didn't believe Fennelpaw; something was wrong. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 18:57, March 5, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw had watched Creekstar make his way to Risingsun, her gaze filled with something. Those traps were there, it could have been here there then what? Shaking it off she wtached as several more cats were made apprentices. Cherrywhisker walked forward as she was named a mentor proudly touching the little tom's nose. Juncopaw was - as usual - the fearless one going up and touching their nose. "When do we start?" She asked with eagerness. She was dying to get out. Spottedpaw was the quiet one as she touched her mentor's nose. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:15, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

"Mhm," The mottled apprentice mumbled under her breath as she continued to play with her moss.---- Caninefang had driven a fox out of the territory, impressed by the beast's manners. He had simply asked it to leave, and then, it had done so without any protest. Amazing!Silverstar 20:45, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

Sparkpaw groaned. Great, more annoying denmates. --- Parsleypaw ran circles around Cherrywhisker. "Can we go out and explore now? Can we? Can we?" --- Peridotpaw watched all the new apprentices flood into the apprentices den with an uncomfortable look. --- Creekstar limped to his den and flopped down on the ground just outside, his thoughts filled with worry about Fennelpaw. "Hi!" Nightshade's mew broke into his thoughts. "Hello, Nightshade," he purred. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:06, March 7, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw walked to the fresh-kill pile, already exhausted from the day's events. The creamy-white she-cat picked out a meaty vole before she found herself a solitaire area. Maybe later she'd just take a walk, not to the moor this time, more to the forest-y side of RockClan.

Cherrywhisker finally put a paw on the energetic apprentices shoulder and stopped. "We'll be training tomorrow, for now you'll set up your nest," she spoke to him firmly. The ginger and white tabby nodding to the other apprentices. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:05, March 7, 2017 (UTC)

"I need you to come see dawnpaw. Can you come with me?" Shrewpounce asked his daughter who was his apprentice. He looked proud of her, but looked away quickly because he thought of something like this is weakness.--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 03:28, March 8, 2017 (UTC)

"Okay..." Parsleypaw meowed, sounding disappointed. She wanted to go out and explore right away, not build boring nests. But she obeyed, hurrying into her new den. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 14:19, March 8, 2017 (UTC)

Cherrywhisker shook her head slightly before turning as her brother walked into camp, Whimbrelface was soaked. He must have been swimming again - something he somehow had a knack for. The red and white warrior bounded to her brother wrinkling her nose at the smell. "Good StarClan! What did you swim in? A swamp?" Whimbrelface rolled his eyes.

Mothpaw had finished meal and now lay in the sun, her creamy-white pelt giving off a very, very pale golden glow. The blue-eyed molly looked around camp with half closed eyes. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:10, March 8, 2017 (UTC)

"Alright, Fennelpaw," Cloudfrost poked her head into the apprentice's den, achromatic eyes gleaming in the faint light. "Let's go out on that patrol now."Silverstar 20:50, March 9, 2017 (UTC)

Ashstorm sat down with a thump. He had been hoping to get an apprentice, but oh well. ---- Snapdragon disappeared into the warriors den to pout. Parsleypaw meanwhile franticly pulled her nest together. When she finished she quickly admired her sloppy work. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 14:06, March 10, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw walked into camp after another day of hunting and practicing a few battle moves she had taught herself. She hadn't seen her mentor around and hoped he'd take her out eventually so she could at least learn some more, seeing as she excelled at learning easily. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 15:52, March 20, 2017 (UTC)

"Dad...yes but after I need to talk with you. In private."Dawnpaw replied her eyes filled with great sadness.--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 02:01, March 26, 2017 (UTC)

Fennelpaw slowly followed Cloudfrost out of camp, watching as the albino she-cat ducked her head to avoid the sunlight.Silverstar 18:02, April 2, 2017 (UTC)

The next day, Lavenderkit bounded into the medicine to see Risingsun, help out with herbs and stuff. "Just don't eat anything, okay? Okay," Hollymask briskly went over a list of rules with her kits before going out to stretch her legs. ---- Nightshade left camp to go hunting. --- Parsleypaw eagerly begged Cherrywhisker to take her battle-training. --- Pumpkinkit meditated quietly. ---- Ashstorm thought about otters, and decided to ask Cherrywhisker if he could tag along with her and Parsleypaw. Ashstorm liked Cherrywhisker a lot... like a lot. He felt weird around her - a good kind. His heart sped up and he felt warm and fluttery. Am I okay? --- Creekstar dozed under the leaders rock, wondering if CaveClan was finished bothering them now. That would be great. ~Patchfeather~ 00:40, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

Flamefur looked across the clearing at her daughter and mate sighed then looked to her left and said"Hollymask, how are you and your kits doing?"--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 01:53, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

"Huh? Oh, I'm doing well, legs are cramped though, and the kits are doing wonderfully!" Hollymask purred in reply. ~Patchfeather~ 02:23, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

"That's good!"she replied then she looked away and asked "What do you think about my kit and mate?"--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 15:11, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask tilted her head thoughtfully to the side, thinking that was an odd question, but she answered anyway. "Oh, they're great, loyal, good warriors. You did a fine job with you're kit." ~Patchfeather~ 16:32, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

"Thanks and do you sometimes think he is too harsh?"Flamefur asked, her eyes turning back to the she-cat.--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 00:05, April 6, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask shrugged, blinking thoughtfully. "I don't know. All cats are harsh sometimes, so I don't blame him," she mewed, a thought crossing her mind. "He... he doesn't hurt you, or your kit, right?" she quietly asked, wary. ~Patchfeather~ 00:13, April 6, 2017 (UTC)

"Well about that..."She turned her head to show a long scar from her left ear to that sides shoulder.--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 18:10, April 6, 2017 (UTC)

Hollymask's blue eyes widened. "He did that to you?" she asked, shocked. How could he? Why was Flamefur with a tom who hurt her? ~Patchfeather~ 01:19, April 7, 2017 (UTC)

"Yes..." Her eyes filled with tears.",and you know that scar on Dawnpaw's face and that long claw mark on her flank..."She started to cry,her face overwhelming with tears"He did that too."She looked away to remember what he said.Dont tell anyone this happened or I'll claw your tounge out of your mouth and feed you to foxes!Her memories had made her cry more and she looked back to her kit and mate."Sometimes I wander what made him this way..."--Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 01:33, April 7, 2017 (UTC)

Shrewpounce looked across the clearing to spot his mate. He could somehow hear what they were saying and put his paw down to signal a sign tho stop.Born Under The Moon But Fight During The Day 13:20, April 8, 2017 (UTC)

Cherrywhisker narrowed her eyes at the apprentice, she had this kind of intimidating look and character to her that scared others off. Well it seemed Ashstorm had stuck around despite that. The red and white tabby greeting him, quickly hushing Parsleypaw. "Of course you can join," she told the warrior. "We were just heading out to check the borders." She stated.

Mothpaw stood off to the side of camp, her white pelt brighter than all her dark pelted Clanmates. The apprentice shook her head as she looked for Nightshade, was he with Fennelpaw again? She turned and stalked out of camp. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 16:30, April 10, 2017 (UTC)

"Oh yay!" Parsleypaw cheered, then quickly shut her mouth, glancing up at Cherrywhisker with wide eyes before darting out of camp. Ashstorm nodded and followed the apprentice out of camp. --- Hollymask took no notice to Shrewpounce. "Why are you with him if he hurts you and your kit? He needs to be punished, this is no way to act!"

Nightshade picked up the scent of rabbit, quickly remembering what happened to his fathers paw and kept an eye open for fox-traps as he padded through the red flowers. He had a good long talk with Creekstar earlier and had learned that he and Orchidbloom were now mates. Nightshade was slightly shocked that Creekstar had taken a new mate, it felt like he was replacing Stoneblaze... but he had seen how happy Creekstar was now, compared to how he was before, Orchidbloom was happy to, and if they were happy, then Nightshade was happy. You know, it's good that he's moved on... he can focus on the future instead of the past. A spark of fear made his pelt ripple. Was Fennelpaw still mad at him? Why, why, why was she mad at him? Did I do something? ~Patchfeather~ 17:52, April 10, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw stalked around outside, she hadn't felt like this before Fennelpaw. Why now? She growled as she stalked through the undergrowth to the moor. The creamy-white apprentice watched the two cats shortly. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 19:43, April 10, 2017 (UTC)

Eclipsekit may or may not have been planning on eating something. Oh well, he'd find a way....Excited, the smoke point tom darted to the medicine cat den, only to trip over his paws and land on his face. Risingsun brightened at the sound of his mate's voice in the distance, and the quiet pattering of his kittens' paws.---- Orchidbloom had volunteered to go out with Fennelpaw on the apprentice's first patrol. She wanted to be proud of her. The mottled apprentice felt slightly better with her adopted mother's presence; she liked the molly. She would be a good mother, if she had kits of her own.Silverstar 01:05, April 13, 2017 (UTC)

She turned sharply stalking her way back towards camp, that was when the scent of Fennelpaw reached her small nose. Great! She was here too. She thought bitterly before she glared at the ground, she didn't know she was only a few feet from them. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 14:44, April 13, 2017 (UTC)

Parsleypaw skipped around the grass. "Will we fight CaveClan?" she demanded, hurrying over to Cherrywhisker and Ashstorm. Ashstorm shook his head. "No, not unless they're on our territory and refuse to leave." Parsleypaw lashed her tail. "But I want to fight!"

Creekstar rested outside his den. He'd have loved to join Fennelpaw's first patrol but he thought it was best if he remained behind, his paw being a little inflamed from the nasty trap. Oh no, what if Fennelpaw gets caught in a trap? What if they meet a CaveClan patrol? Or a fox? Restless, he kneaded the ground, anxeity making his pelt itch.

Lavenderkit stumbled after her brother into the medicine den. She wrinkled her nose at all the scents, overwelmed. ~Patchfeather~ 00:31, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

Almost shyly, Fennelpaw glanced up at Orchidbloom, swallowing silently. "Wh-what if I mess up, or accidentally go into another Clan's territory? Or even get caught in a trap..." The apprentice fretted nervously, while the deputy frowned and nudged her side reassuringly. "We're not close to any borders, and we picked up the remaining traps on the patrol I sent out. You'll be fine, dear."Silverstar 01:12, April 15, 2017 (UTC)

Lavenderkit stared around the den in amazment. So many plants... The she-kit scrambled over to a pile of sweet smelling leaves, licking one. I wonder if it's tansy? ~Patchfeather~ 00:55, April 17, 2017 (UTC)

Cherrywhisker cast her narrow gaze onto the apprentice. "We do not fight unless it is called for. Even if they do refuse to leave we won't fight unless its absolutely necessary." She said a little too harshly. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 19:46, April 18, 2017 (UTC)

Parlseypaw flinched at her mentors hard tone, but brightened instantly when she scented mouse. "I smell prey," she announced, looking around eagerly for the tiny creature. "Can I look for it?" ~Patchfeather~ 02:32, April 19, 2017 (UTC)

Mothpaw darted into camp, tired from her activities of the day. She curled up in her nest to sleep, but the thought Nightshade finally happier with Fennelpaw plagued her mind.

Cherrywhisker sighed. "Of course, remember to make sure the wind is blowing your way." (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 16:39, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

After their patrol, Orchidbloom returned to camp with Fennelpaw on her heels. The mottled apprentice's confidence seemed boosted, with her first catch, a small mouse, hanging in her jaws. She went to deposit it on the pile, but with a smile, the deputy allowed her to eat it instead. With all the patrols out, she had nothing more to do, and thank StarClan for that. Orchidbloom felt heavy on her paws, exhuasted, nearly ill.Silverstar 21:54, October 2, 2017 (UTC)

Creekstar was pleased to see Fennelpaw was all right when she and Orchidbloom returned - she even caught her first mouse! Orchidbloom caught his eye and anxiety pricked his paws. She didn't look well... He padded over, licking her affectionately on the ears. "You all right?" ~Patchfeather~ 01:37, October 3, 2017 (UTC)

In response, she lovingly rubbed her forehead against his chin before flashing him a reassuring smile. "Yes, I'm fine." Orchidbloom promised the dark-coated tom, removing her gaze from him so that she could glance upon camp. "Everything alright with you?"Silverstar 22:31, October 4, 2017 (UTC)

"Everything's fine here," Creekstar replied. He wasn't convinced she was fine, but who knew, maybe she just needed sleep. "The hunt went well, I see," his eyes zipped over to Fennelpaw with her mouse. ~Patchfeather~ 23:30, October 4, 2017 (UTC)

Orchidbloom nodded eagerly. "Yes, it did go very well. It seemed to...brighten Fennelpaw up a bit."Silverstar 23:23, October 8, 2017 (UTC)

"That's good," Creekstar mewed, relieved that nothing serious was wrong with his daughter. His gaze went back to Orchidbloom and he studied her for a moment. "Why don't you get some rest?" he carefully avoided saying anything about how she still might be sick. What if she knew he was still worried about her, that made her worried that he was worried? That might make her feel worse. ~Patchfeather~ 02:04, October 28, 2017 (UTC)
