MistClan




Cats of the Mist


 











Beware the shadow that stalks from the darkness...


For generations, a Clan of wild cats has lived in the territory across the mountains.  It is said that many, many moons ago, the ancestors of these cats, gifted with special elemental abilities, swam up from the ocean, originating from a legendary island in the middle of the sea.  They traversed the mountain range and settled in the land beyond.  And for generations, the descendants of those original "sea cats" have lived in peace.


But recently, a rash of mysterious incidents has threatened the long-standing harmony.  Cats are disappearing without a trace, and some are turning up dead.  Something – or someone – is picking them off one by one, and now no cat is safe.  Can the cats of MistClan discover the source of the sinister force before it’s too late?







News







25th of August, 2017- The first roleplay post has finally been made!  WOOO!

Map and Locations

of Interest








 


- Locations -


The Camp- MistClan's camp is located in a large cavern in the mountain face, at the northern edge of the territory.  The entrance, at the end of a winding pathway about 20 tail-lengths above the ground, is commonly cloaked from easy view by a thin veil of mist, which gives the Clan its name.  A gap in the ceiling lets in a substantial amount of light, but at the same time isn't so large that birds of prey can easily fly in and snatch up kits.  Branching out from the central cavern are several smaller caves which serve as dens for the Clan's inhabitants.
        To the north edge of the main cavern, directly opposite the entrance, lies an arrangement of large stones, called the Rockpile, which is where the Clan leader makes his or her announcements.  The leader's den is to the right and slightly behind the Rockpile, and the fresh-kill pile is just off to the left of it.  The medicine cat's den is located in an alcove off of the southwest edge of the clearing.  Several smaller hollows in the western wall serve as nests for sick cats.  There are three other hollows to the southeast edge where the medicine cats sleep, and there is a cleft to the left of these hollows where the medicine supplies are stored.  The elder's den is located on the west side of the camp and is oblong in shape.  The nursery can be found in the northwest corner, and is large and round, with a curved entrance tunnel which provides plenty of privacy.  The triangular-shaped apprentice's den is off to the northeast edge of camp, with another longer entrance tunnel so that chatting youngsters don't disrupt the rest of the Clan.  The 8-shaped warrior's den is on the eastern edge of the main cavern, and is split into two halves that share an open side.  The northern half is for the senior warriors - over four years of age - and the southern half is for the junior warriors.


Meadow- On the eastern edge of MistClan's territory, across the river, lies a large, spacious meadow.  Prey is plentiful here, particularly mice and rabbits, and this is the only place to find many of the herbs used by the medicine cats.  Kestrels frequently hunt here, as well, and though these small falcons are no threat to the cats, some of the species of snakes that also reside in the tall grasses are - warriors would do well to watch where they set their paws when they hunt here.


Southern Woods- The major swath of forest the Clan frequently hunts in.  The southern border cuts through this forest.


Misty Falls- A small waterfall hidden within the Southern Woods that empties into a pool below, known as Misty Pool.  Misty Cave lies behind the cascading water.  The stream that feeds this waterfall is known as Misty Stream.


Misty Hollow- A dip in the terrain surrounding Misty Pool.  The pool is lined with large clusters of rocks, which makes falling from the top of the falls extremely hazardous.


Misty Cave- A small, hollowed-out cave located behind Misty Falls.  To get inside, one must climb up a narrow, rocky path, about a tail-length wide, along the short cliff on the right side of the falls.  This cave is where medicine cats and leaders go to speak to StarClan.  To achieve contact, cats lap up the mist from the rocks, and then move to the back of the cave to sleep.


Sandy Hollow- A small sandy clearing, about 12 tail-lengths long by 8 tail-lengths wide and a tail-length deep.   This is the best place to practice battle techniques.


Deep Woods- The thick swath of forest to the east of the Meadow.  The area is little-explored by Clan cats, as it lies beyond their territory.  Thus, it is cloaked in mystery.


Pinnacle Peak- The highest mountain peak in the territory.  It is a long and arduous trek to get here, but a few varieties of herbs, including catmint, only grow on this peak.


Precipice Pass- A winding, narrow, precarious pathway on the northern side of the river, this is the easiest - and safest - way through the mountains.  Both banks rise up above the river below, creating cliffs on either side.  The northern bank rises before the southern one, and flattens out for the narrow path before rising up again, into the mountain.  The river slopes down toward the ocean, creating dangerous rapids.  About halfway through the pass, a small cave leading from the path is bore into the cliff face, providing shelter for those passing through.


Element Bay- Outside of the territory, across the mountains at the ocean, there is a small bay, surrounded on the northern and eastern edges by a cliff about 10 tail-lengths high.  There is a large, low-roofed cave bore into the cliff on the eastern edge, about six tail-lengths from the top, with a narrow pathway winding down the cliff to the entrance.  Within this cave lies a very special crystalline stone, called the Element Stone.


The Element Stone- This special stone pulsates with an ethereal, multicolored energy.  Legend has it that the original founders of MistClan imbued this stone with elemental energy.  Cats who are having trouble discovering or using their elemental abilities go here and touch or sit near the stone for a night, which often helps their abilities to show themselves and develop with more ease.  Every apprentice of MistClan is required to visit the Element Stone at least once before they can become a warrior; however, one must be cautious, as the cave is flooded when the tide rises.

Glossary







- Animal Species -


American Crow- A medium-sized, pure black bird.  They will eat just about anything, from berries to mice.  Though they prefer fresh meat, they have no qualms about eating carrion.  Incredibly intelligent, and with a complex social structure, they will sometimes gain amusement by playing with their kind or even teasing other animals, including cats.


American Robin- A medium-sized songbird, mostly a dark blackish brown with white markings around the eyes, a white throat with black streaks, a white belly and undertail coverts, and a reddish-orange breast.  They eat insects, berries, and other fruit.


Barn Owl- A medium-sized, pale, nocturnal owl, generally of mottled light brown and gray colors with white unders and face and darker, heavily speckled wings which are mostly white on the undersides.  They are easily identified by their dark eyes set in a distinctive heart-shaped facial disk.  They eat mostly small mammals, but also occasionally bats, birds, lizards, amphibians, and insects.


Barn Swallow- A small bird with very long, pointed wings and a long, forked tail.  They are dark, iridescent blue on the uppers, wings, tail, and collar, with a rusty-colored face and a lighter rust breast and belly, and have a line of white spots on the outside of the upper tail.  The females are similar to the males but are paler and less glossy, and have shorter tail streamers.  They feed on insects, mostly while flying, and can often be seen swooping over the water.


Black-Billed Magpie- A fairly large, long-tailed bird of the crow family, black with a white belly, shoulder patches, and markings on the primaries and iridescent blue and green on the black of the wings and tail.  They will scavenge kills from larger predators such as wolves or coyotes, and may even snipe kills from cats, but will also consume insects, worms, small rodents, seeds, berries, nuts, and eggs.  Highly intelligent, they are known to create caches of food in the ground and return for them later.


Black Swan- A large waterbird, entirely black with a white-tipped red beak.   They eat aquatic plants and algae, and can be very aggressive when nesting.


Brambling- A small bird of the finch family.  The males have a black head and spots on the flanks and back, dark uppers and tail, orange breast, white belly and rump, and dark wings with orange scapulars, covert bars, and remex fringes.  They are mainly seed-eating, favoring beechnuts, but their young are fed largely on insects.  They migrate in fall and return in summer.


Brown Pelican- A large shorebird with a long beak and notable throat pouch.  The underparts are dark, with the upperparts streaked with gray and dark brown, and the head and neck are white, with a yellowish wash on the crown.  They eat fish and occasionally amphibians and crustaceans, and can be found along the seashore.


Bullock's Oriole- A medium-small songbird, the males are primarily a bright orange, with black wings with a white patch, a black tail and 'bib', and black around the eyes extending in a streak to the black crown.  Females are lighter and duller, with gray-brown uppers, pale undersides, pale yellow on the throat and face and under the tail, and an olive crown.  They feed mainly on insects, berries, and nectar.


Canadian Lynx- A grayish brown, spotted cat with long tufts of ear fur and a great, furry ruff around their face.  They generally keep to themselves, but can prove dangerous to the cats if threatened, as they are larger and stronger.


Chaffinch- A small songbird in the finch family.  The brightly colored male has a blue-gray cap and tail, rusty unders and face, brown back and scapulars, olive rump, and white undertail, with mottled black and white wings with pale remex outer fringes - yellow on the secondaries and inner primaries and white on the outer primaries.  The female is much duller, brown on the head and back with a lighter breast and unders.  They eat mainly seeds and other plant material from the ground, though during the breeding season their diet switches to invertebrates.  They migrate in the fall and return in spring.


Collared Dove- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, seed-eating bird.  They are a buff color with darker tails and flight feathers and a black collar marking on the back of the neck.


Common Buzzard- A medium-sized bird of prey, usually shades of brown with pale spotting on the chest and belly.  They are opportunistic hunters and will consume small mammals, reptiles, birds, and even insects.  They will also occasionally take kits if the opportunity arises.


Common Hedgehog- A small brown animal with short legs and tail and thick, prickly spines.  They are omnivorous and feed mainly on invertebrates, as well as some fruits and mushrooms.


Common Pheasant- A large, ground-dwelling bird, they can range in color from nearly white to almost black, but the males are typically colored with barred reds, golds, and browns, with some cream and black markings, and iridescent green on the head, while females are mottled shades of brown and cream.  They eat a wide variety of seeds, berries, leaves, and insects, and provide a large meal for several cats if caught.


Common Porcupine- A medium-sized, stocky, short-legged and short-tailed animal, mostly brown or black with white highlights on their long, dangerous quills.  They spend a good deal of time in trees and eat twigs, bark, roots, berries, and other vegetation.  They are sometimes hunted by larger predators, but should be avoided at all costs by cats, as getting stuck by their quills is extremely painful and can even prove deadly.


Common Raven- A large, black bird that both scavenges and hunts small animals.  They are very similar to crows, but larger and have a deeper 'rock' call, unlike a crow's distinctive 'caw'.  Like crows, they are incredibly intelligent and social and will play pranks and jokes.


Common Starling- Medium-sized, stout-bodied songbirds with black-brown iridescent plumage that can shine green and purple depending on the light.  Each feather is tipped with white on the body and face and brown on the wings, head, and shoulders, giving them a speckled appearance.  They are extremely gregarious, and often form large, very noisy flocks, able to mimic just about any sound they hear.  However, their aerial displays are a miraculous sight to behold.  They are mostly insectivorous, but are opportunistic and will also eat fruits, grains and seeds, nectar, worms, snails, amphibians and lizards, and even small fish, if the opportunity arises.


Cottontail Rabbit- A smallish creature with brown fur and long ears.  They are very quick, but will provide a meal for multiple cats if one can catch them.


Coyote- A medium-sized, dog-like creature, similar to a wolf but smaller.  They don't usually hunt cats, but can be dangerous if they are hungry or feel threatened.


European Badger- A stout, short-legged animal, ticked gray in color with black legs and a black-and-white-striped face.  They have very long claws and can be bad-tempered and dangerous when provoked.


European Roller- A fairly large, stocky bird, mainly a bright blue with a tawny back and scapulars, a purplish rump with purple-tinged dark blue tail feathers with white tips, purple faded into the wing coverts, and black remiges with a pale blue band across the base of the primaries.  It is well-known for its unique, twisting and turning aerial displays.  It eats large insects, small reptiles, rodents, and frogs.  It migrates in fall and returns in spring to breed.


Fieldfare- A bird in the thrush family, characterized by a slate-gray head, nape and rump, dark brown back, blackish tail, pale unders, and boldly speckled, orange-tinged breast.  The upperwing coverts and secondaries are chestnut brown, with brownish primaries and conspicuous white underwing coverts.  The sexes are similar in appearance, but the females are slightly more brown.  These birds are omnivorous and eat a wide variety of mollusks, insects, worms, berries, grain, and seeds.  They are gregarious and roost in the open, and migrate in the fall, returning to the territory in spring.


Golden Eagle- Large, golden-brown bird of prey.  Though they typically prey on smaller creatures such as mice, squirrels, and hares, they have enough power to take on small deer, and will take kits and even younger apprentices if given the opportunity.


Gray Wolf- Large, dog-like animals that live in packs.  They generally keep to the more mountainous areas, outside of Clan territory, but occasionally wander into the lowlands.  Most of the time, they ignore the cats, but will hunt them if they are desperate.  When they are, they can be extremely dangerous.


Great Blue Heron- A large wading bird, mostly bluish gray in color with darker remiges, a brown-tinged neck streaked with black and white down the front, red-brown thighs, and a paired reddish and black stripe up the flanks.  The face is nearly white, with a pair of black or slate plumes above the eyes to the back of the head.  They eat mostly fish, but also shrimp, crabs, aquatic insects, small mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and birds.


Great Gray Owl- A very large owl, gray with pale bars on top and light with dark streaks underneath, with a pronounced facial disk, yellow eyes, and a small white collar just below the beak.  They almost entirely eat small mammals, but alternatively eat others, such as hares, weasels, small songbirds, quail, grouse, small hawks, and ducks.  They don't usually bother cats, but will occasionally hunt kits or small apprentices.


Green Heron- A small wading bird with a greenish back, chestnut neck with a white throat and chest, gray underparts, gray-black wings that grade into green or blue, and a greenish-black cap.  They eat fish and frogs, and are known to use small food items as bait when fishing.  They are not normally hunted by the cats.


House Finch- A small, mottled brown, seed-eating bird with a large, thick beak.  Males have a bright red head and chest.


House Mouse- A small, brown rodent.  They live just about anywhere, eat just about anything, and are a common prey item for cats, foxes, snakes, and birds of prey.


House Sparrow- A small, seed-eating bird.  Females are primarily mottled brown above and gray-buff below, while males are more boldly colored, with a reddish back, grayish underparts, and bold facial markings which include a gray crown, chestnut red flanking the crown on either side of the head, and black around the beak, under the eyes, and on the throat.


Kestrel- A small falcon, they  have  primarily chestnut brown plumage with black spots on the upperside and black remiges, and a cream-brown chest with brownish streaks.  Females have more black spots than the males, which additionally have a blue-gray head and tail.  They hunt primarily in grassy areas by either hovering or searching from a perch, and then swooping swiftly down upon their prey.  They consume mainly small rodents, but also occasionally lizards, small birds, and even invertebrates.


Least Weasel- A small weasel, mostly brown in color with white unders in summer; their coat turns entirely white in winter.  They eat primarily small rodents but will also prey on rabbits, birds, eggs, fish, and frogs.  They are highly aggressive and bold and will occasionally attempt to take a stray kit or even a small apprentice.


Mallard- A medium-sized waterbird.  The females are mottled brown, while the males are grayish with a brown breast, gray-brown wings, a black rear with white-bordered dark tail feathers, a black-rimmed iridescent blue patch on the secondaries, and a iridescent green head.  They eat invertebrates, gastropods, crustaceans, worms, and plant matter such as seeds, roots, and tubers.  They provide enough to feed several cats if one can manage to catch them.


Meadow Vole- A small brown rodent, similar to a mouse, that feeds primarily on grasses and seeds.  They are commonly hunted by foxes, snakes, birds of prey, and cats.  They live throughout the entire territory, but are most commonly found in the Meadow.


Mockingbird- Medium-sized dusty brown-gray birds with long legs and tails and orange eyes.  Their white wing markings make them easy to identify in flight.  They are well-known for their ability to almost perfectly copy the songs of other birds, and have no qualms about diving for any animal that gets too close to their nests, squawking loudly in the process.


Mountain Quail- A smallish, ground-dwelling bird with a gray breast, brown face, wing primaries, and belly, and heavily barred white unders.  They eat primarily seeds, along with the occasional insect.  They are good for hunting, but shouldn't be underestimated even though they live on the ground - they are secretive, and can move surprisingly quickly through dense undergrowth.


Mourning Dove- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, seed-eating bird, primarily a muted gray-brown in color, with a small black patch below the jaw and black spots on the wings.  The wings make a distinct whistling sound upon take-off and landing.


North American Opossum- A medium-sized, ticked gray animal with a pale face and darker legs, that looks a bit like a large rat.  They are harmless, but will hiss or screech when threatened, exposing many small, pointed teeth, and are notorious for their death feint, even emitting a foul-smelling liquid to repel predators.  They are nocturnal and are omnivorous, eating a wide range of fruits, grains, invertebrates, carrion, snakes, and small mammals.


Northern Flicker- A medium-sized woodpecker, beige with black bars on the back and wings, with a black patch on the upper breast and black spots on the lower breast and belly and a white rump.  The tail is dark on top and red or orange below with black tips, there is a red patch at the back of the head, and the underwings are bright red or orange, as well.  Males have a black or red stripe at the base of the beak.  They generally eat insects, especially ants, but also consume fruits, seeds, and nuts.  They are one of the few birds to eat ants, which make up about half of their diet.


Osprey- A medium-sized, fish-eating bird of prey, glossy brown on the uppers with white unders, sometimes brown streaked on the breast.  The head is white with a dark mask across the eyes and the sides of the neck.   The wings are mottled brown with lighter, barred unders and largely-white marginal and median underwing coverts.  While they don't frequent MistClan's territory, they can be found at the coast, and can sometimes be seen flying in the distant southeast, especially from Pinnacle Peak, which suggests there may be a large body of water somewhere in that direction...


Raccoon- A medium-sized, gray-ticked animal with a black mask and a ringed tail.  They will eat almost anything, including invertebrates, plant matter, bird eggs, and vertebrates such as fish, amphibians, and very occasionally birds and mammals, occasionally even stealing young, unsupervised kits.  They are primarily nocturnal, and quite intelligent and bold, even occasionally playing tricks on unwary cats.


Red Fox- Dog-like creatures with bright reddish fur and long, fluffy tails, they typically hunt mice in fields and snow.  A potential threat to the cats, particularly kits and younger apprentices.


Red Squirrel- A small, reddish rodent that lives in trees.  They are good game for cats, as well as lynx and eagles.


Red-Tailed Hawk- A large hawk with mottled brown and cream plumage, they are characterized by the adults' reddish tails.  They are opportunistic hunters and will prey on small mammals, songbirds, and reptiles.  They will take kits if given the chance.


Rock Pigeon- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, seed-eating bird.  They are generally gray with two black bars on each wing, a darker tail and head, and iridescence on the neck, but can also be found in browns and blacks.


Scrub Jay- A medium-sized, long-tailed, bright blue bird with a gray cape and white unders and brow.  They eat mainly acorns and pine nuts, but also consume grains, berries, fruits, insects, eggs and nestlings, small frogs and reptiles, and mice.  They are highly intelligent and aggressive and will chase off other birds from food sources.


Seagull- A medium-large white burd with a mostly dark gray tail and upperwings and white underwings with dark-tipped primaries.  They feed on fish and sea invertebrates such as krill, squid, and jellyfish.  They are usually found at the coast, but occasionally wander over the mountains.


Short-Eared Owl- A medium-sized mottled brown owl with small ear-tufts, a pale, streaky facial disk and unders, and black rings around the yellow eyes.  Their diet consists of mainly voles, but also other small rodents, bats, smaller birds, and insects.  They hunt mainly at night, but occasionally also during the day or at dawn or dusk.


Striped Skunk- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, short-limbed animal with a long, furry tail, they are black with varied white markings on the back, tail, and forehead.  They are primarily insectivores, but will also eat fruits, small mammals, fish, and the eggs and chicks of ground-nesting birds.  These should be avoided at all costs, as they spray a blinding, foul-smelling liquid at predators that is near-impossible to get off.


Swainson's Thrush- A medium-sized songbird, brown on the upperparts, with white underparts and brown on the flanks, and a light brown breast and face with darker spots.  They mainly eat insects, berries, and other fruit.


Turkey Vulture- A large, gregarious scavenging bird of prey, mostly a blackish brown with lighter grayish remex undersides and a bald red head.  They can often be seen circling overhead searching for carcasses.  They aren't a threat to cats, as they don't hunt live prey.


Varied Thrush- A medium-sized songbird, the males are black with a bright orange breast and throat, an orange streak from above the eye down the neck, orange bars on the wings, and a black collar marking, while females are less vibrant, with mottled browns and grays instead of black.  They eat primarily insects.


Western Meadowlark- A medium-sized songbird with grayish brown uppersides streaked with black, black-streaked white flanks, and bold yellow undersides with a black 'v' marking on the chest.  They are mainly insectivorous, but will also feed on seeds and berries.


White-Tailed Deer- A medium-sized deer, frequently preyed upon by wolves and coyotes.


Wild Turkey- A large, ground-dwelling bird of a blackish or gray-brown color with a coppery sheen.  Adult males have a bald red head and throat, as well as a dark, fanned tail, glossy bronze wings, and areas of multicolored iridescence.  They eat nuts, seeds, berries, roots, insects, grasses, and, occasionally, amphibians and small reptiles.  While the adult males are potentially dangerous game, hens and young can be taken with care, generally by hunting in pairs or small groups.


Wood Mouse- A small, common rodent found in sparse forests and fields.  They are mostly nocturnal and build extensive ground burrows, and eat seeds, fruits, roots, and invertebrates.

Glossary







- Plants & Herbs -


Alder- Tall tree with simple, serrated leaves.  The bark is dark and often covered in moss, and the twigs are spotted and sticky to the touch.  The bark can be eaten or licked to cure a toothache.  Can be found in boggy areas near the river.


Beech- Large, smooth-wooded, grayish-colored tree with oval leaves.  Leaves are often used to carry medicine supplies, and can be used to mix poultices.  Oil from the nuts can be applied directly to wounds to fight and prevent infection.  Found throughout the sparser woodland, particularly higher up in the mountains, in the chalkier soil found there, as well as in the sandy areas near the ocean.


Bindweed- A vine-like plant with white, trumpet-like flowers and distinctive arrow-shaped green leaves.  Vines can be used to tie things, most importantly sticks to broken legs to set the break.  Can be found almost anywhere, like ivy.


Blackberry- Also called a bramble, this is a stout, prickly bush with leaves that grow in threes and are olive-green with reddish-brown tinged edges.  Younger leaves are completely brown-red.  A poultice of the leaves can be applied to bee stings to bring down the pain and swelling.  It is very common and grows in most forests.


Borage- Distinguished by its hairy leaves and small, star-shaped flowers, which can be either bright blue or purplish in color, consuming the leaves and roots of this plant helps to bring down fever.  Its seeds and leaves are also good for increasing the milk supply of queens.  Uncommonly found near the edges of forests.


Broom- A shrub with small leaves and tiny yellow flowers that grow upwards in a tall cone.  It is used to make poultices for broken bones.  It can be found in the Meadow.


Burdock- In the thistle family, this plant has tall stems and dark leaves.  It has a strong, easily-distinguished smell and large, fat roots.  The roots can be chewed up and applied to wounds to keep infection away, and the leaves can be chewed and applied to wounds clear of infection to speed up the healing process.  Found in damp soil, most commonly near the river.


Burnet- A small bush that has multiple oval-shaped leaves on each stalk.  In leaf-fall and late greenleaf, large clusters of small flower buds grow on the top of the plant.  It is eaten as a travelling herb to keep a cat’s strength up.  It can be found in the Meadow.


Catchweed- A very small weed with fuzzy green orbs that grow tiny white flowers on long stems.  Burrs are occasionally used to keep poultices in place without irritating the wound or skin, if cobwebs are in short supply.  Can be located in the Meadow, or other areas with low-growing vegetation.


Catmint- Also known as catnip.  It is a delicious-smelling plant that is low to the ground and possesses small, bumpy, slightly fuzzy leaves.  It can be eaten to treat Greencough and Whitecough.  It’s very rare and hard to find, and generally grows higher up in the mountains, most frequently on Pinnacle Peak.


Celandine- An uncommon yellow flower with prickly, fuzzy stems and four-petaled flowers with long pollen-stems.  Nectar is trickled into damaged eyes.  Can be found in the Meadow, or in sunny clearings in the forest.


Chamomile- A mild-smelling plant that looks very similar to daisy.  It can be applied in a poultice to treat inflammation, rashes, and dry, itchy skin and consumed to treat allergies, muscle spasms, and stomach pain, as well as administered to help with anxiety and sleep.  Should not be given to pregnant or nursing mothers.  Can be located in the Meadow or in other areas with low-growing vegetation.


Chervil- A  large, leafy, sweet-smelling plant with fern-like leaves and small white flowers. Its roots are dark brown, gnarled, and knobby.  Leaves are chewed and spit on infected wounds.  They can also be eaten to soothe bellyache, and are helpful with the nausea that sometimes occurs when kitting, as they are safe to give to queens.  Can be found along the rocky cliffs near the camp, as well as among the rocks in Misty Hollow.


Coltsfoot- This is a small, flowering plant, which looks somewhat like a dandelion.  It can have yellow or white flowers.  Its leaves can be eaten to help reduce shortness of breath or stimulate a kit to breathe, and is helpful in treating kitcough.  Can be found near the river.


Comfrey- This plant has large, long leaves and clusters of pink, white, or purple bell-shaped flowers.  The roots can be chewed into a paste and applied to wounds to help soothe them, as well as spread over a broken bone to help it in healing.  Can be found in the meadow, in the damp ground closer to the river.


Coneflower- A purple flower with petals found in a high cone.  It is very sweet-smelling and tasting.  The roots and leaves are eaten to give strength and resistance to illness.  It can be found near young pine trees.


Daisy- A small plant with circular, iconic white flowers with many petals and a yellow center.  The dark oval leaves are chewed into a paste to apply to aching joints.  Can also be eaten to prevent joint pain when traveling.  Can be found nearly anywhere.


Dandelion- A common yellow flower with long, weak, hollow stems.  About a half-moon after the weed blooms, the yellow flower turns into a white sphere of minuscule smaller flowers that blow away in the wind.  Liquid within the hollow stems is applied to bee stings and the leaves can also be eaten to treat pain, if one can handle the bitter taste.  Extremely common and can be found everywhere.


Deadly Nightshade- A deadly toxic bushy plant, it can grow several feet high when not exposed to a lot of sun.  The oval-shaped, bitter-smelling and tasting leaves are dull, darkish green in color and of unequal size.  Soft, downy hairs may occur on young stems and leaves.  The veins of the leaves are prominent on the underside.  Large, shiny black berries - the most toxic part of the plant - grow at the base of the short leaf stems in leaf-fall.  It is found under the shade of trees, on wooded hills and at the base of the mountains.


Dock- A common, large-leafed plant with a tangy, almost sour, smell and taste.  The leaves can be applied in a poultice to reduce swelling, help skin issues, and heal broken or injured pads, but it stings quite badly when applied.  It can help sooth the pains of recent wounds when placed in nests.  It doesn’t grow in the mountains, but can be found in the flatter areas of the forest.


Fennel- A plant with very tiny yellow flower clumps on thin stalks and thin, spiky leaves.  The juice can be consumed for treatment of chronic coughs.  Eating it suppresses hunger and can help pain in the hips.  It can be easily found along the river and near the coast.


Feverfew- A smallish bush with daisy-like flowers, the leaves of this herb can be eaten to reduce fever or chills, and can also boost the immune system.  Don't give to pregnant mothers - however, it can be used during labor in emergencies to stimulate contractions.  It grows almost anywhere, but can be found most commonly near the river.


Goldenrod- A tall plant with clumps of tiny, bright yellow flowers and narrow, pointy leaves.  Considered the best herb for speeding up the healing of wounds and treating them in general when applied in a poultice.  Rarely found, most often on the mountainsides.


Holly- A large plant with deep green, spiky-edged leaves and clusters of bright red berries.  The berries are toxic to cats, but are an important food source for birds.  It grows in shady areas, generally near trees.


Juniper- This is a large, evergreen bush with dark-colored, needle-like leaves.  The dark, purple-colored berries can be eaten to soothe bellyaches, and, when consumed, the leaves can help to ease breathing and reduce coughs, as well as strengthen the immune system.  It shouldn't be eaten by pregnant or nursing mothers, but in emergencies can be used during labor to stimulate delivery of kits.  It grows throughout the forest.


Knotgrass- A very common weed, the stems can grow up to six tail-lengths high, with stalkless, alternating, narrow oval leaves.  The roots are very strong and branching.  It can be used to treat diarrhea and kill worms and fleas.  It can be found almost anywhere.


Labrador Tea- A shrub that grows to a height of four to five tail-lengths with irregular and wooly branches.  The leaves are alternate and elliptical or oblong.  The upperside of the leaves are smooth and the underside is woolly, with the edges rolled back.  Bees are attracted to the large, white, five-petaled flower clusters.  It can be made into a poultice and rubbed on the chest and neck to treat coughs and chest infections.  It tastes and smells spicy, a bit like mint.  It can be found on Pinnacle Peak.


Lamb’s Ear- A small, very soft, fuzzy whitish-green plant.  It is eaten to give strength.  It is very common higher up in the mountains, particularly on Pinnacle Peak.


Lavender- A small, flowering plant with tall clusters of purple flowers, the leaves can be eaten to soothe the throat and stop nausea, vomiting, and convulsions.  The unique scent helps to calm the nerves and reduce stress.  The juice can be rubbed on areas to reduce inflammation and calm painful joints and muscles, and dabbed on the forehead to ease headaches and fever.  Can be found in some sparsely forested areas, as well as in the Meadow.


Mallow- A short plant with fuzzy, three-pointed, somewhat bumpy leaves and sweet-smelling purple flowers with narrow, heart-shaped petals.  It is eaten to soothe bellyaches.  It grows best near the seashore.


Marigold- Also called calendula, this is a small plant with oblong green leaves and many-petaled, orange-yellow flowers.  The flowers are frequently used in a poultice to help heal cuts, scrapes, bruises and other minor wounds or soothe the itch or sting of insect bites, as well as to decrease inflammation.  Eating the flowers can help prevent seizures.  They can also be ingested to soothe stomach cramps, but should not be consumed by pregnant queens.  It can be found in the meadow, close to the river.


Mint- A low-growing plant with downy, serrated leaves that can be anywhere from green to purple to yellow, with white fuzz.  It has a very sharp, cool smell and taste.  It is used in preparation of deceased warriors to hide the scent of death.  It can also be eaten or rubbed on a queen’s belly when her kits are having trouble suckling.  It can be found throughout the forest.


Oak- A large, common tree with rough brown bark and easily-identifiable, many-pointed leaves.  Dry leaves are taken from the forest floor in leaf-fall.  A poultice can be chewed and applied thickly on wounds to stop infection from spreading.


Parsley- A low-growing plant with broad, crinkly, ragged-edged leaves and tiny clumps of five to eight white or yellow flowers on a branching stalk.  It generally has little use, but can stop milk flow in some queens.  It is poisonous to birds.  Can be found in sunny areas near the river.


Poison Ivy- An irritating, low-growing plant that causes horrible, itchy skin lesions and fur loss.  The roots are reddish and branching, and the leaves are large and three-parted, with the central leaflet longest and the lateral ones nearly stalkless.  When dry, the leaves are papery and brittle, sometimes with black spots.  It can be ingested for a deep sedative that causes temporary paralysis, but also causes irritation and delirium, so is not to be used lightly.  It grows commonly in the dark parts of forests.


Poppy- A bright orange-red flower, the seeds of this plant can be consumed to induce sleep, help with pain, and calm the nerves.  The entire flower heads can be consumed to help with coughs, and the petals and leaves can be chewed to improve sleep.  Can be found in the Meadow.


Ragwort- A tall, rotten-tasting shrub with yellow flowers and tiny, numerous leaves.  It is applied in a poultice to treat aching joints.  It can be found in sparse forests.


Ragweed- A ragged-leaved plant that looks similar to a fern.  It is eaten for strength and energy.  It can be found among rocks in the mountains.


Raspberry- This looks very similar to a blackberry bush, but the leaves are soft to the touch with sharp-toothed edges, and the berries are red.  The leaves are given to queens to stop bleeding during kitting.  Berries can be used to coax out prey.  Can be found throughout the forest.


Rush- A plant with dark, reddish-purple heads on its long, thin stalks.  Hard stalks are used to bind broken bones.  It is found most commonly near water.


Snakeroot- A fairly tall plant with large leaves and clusters of small white flowers near the top of the plant.  The roots can be eaten in small amounts to aid fevers and diarrhea, and can be chewed up and applied to snakebites to draw out the venom.  Consuming too much of this plant can cause weakness and nausea.  You can find it in areas with sparse vegetation, such as on the edges of forests, as well as in thickets and on the edge of the river.


Saffron- A low plant with grass-like leaves and lily-shaped pink flowers.  Parts of the plant are eaten before or after kitting to prevent or stop heavy bleeding.  It grows in the Meadow and in forest clearings during greenleaf.


Sage- This plant generally grows about a tail-length high and has wiry stems.  The leaves grow in pairs up the stem and are oblong with rounded ends and prominent veins.  Flowers grow only in late greenleaf and are in whorls, purplish, and lipped.  All parts have a strong herbal odor and have a warm, bitter taste.  Drinking a tonic of water and crushed sage can soothe the throat.  Fresh leaves can be rubbed on teeth to strengthen them in elders.  It is most commonly found in forests near the coast.


Sorrel- A tall plant with arrow-shaped leaves and tiny round red flowers on a stalk. . Roots and leaves are used to help with heavy bleeding, as well as to stimulate appetite.  It grows pretty much anywhere.


Sticklewort- A spiky, woody root with a black stem, small leaflets and yellow, star-shaped flowers.  When mixed in a tonic of water and honey, it can be ingested to fix the worst stomachaches and, surprisingly, snake bites, if taken immediately.  It can be found in the Meadow, as well as in dry thickets.


Stinging Nettle- A bushy plant with hard, brown or green stems and long, toothed, yellow-green leaves.  It is most distinguished from its long clusters of very tiny bulbs.  The leaves and stems can be covered in hairs that are either soft or spiky.  Seeds are eaten to induce vomiting.  Seeds and leaves can be chewed and applied to swelling areas, and it can be mixed with comfrey to help heal broken bones.  The stems also help with infection.  It is found all over forests, and, most commonly, in moist fields.


Sweet Sedge- Thick, reed-like stems tipped with long, yellow, cone-shaped buds.  The sap is swallowed to ease internal infections.  It is most common near rivers or streams, but only during leaf-bare.


Tansy- Easily distinguished by its feathery, dark green leaves and clusters of round, bright yellow flowers.  Its flowers can cure coughs and the leaves can be chewed to relieve aches, but it must be used only in small doses, as it is toxic.  NEVER give tansy to a pregnant queen, as it can cause miscarriage.  It grows on the edges of the tree lines, as well as in sparse clusters of trees or clearings in the forest.


Thyme- A short, strong-smelling green plant with numerous woody stems and flattish round leaves that grow in pairs.  It flowers in summer, with the small, bluish purple flowers growing in clusters.  Can be used to aid in anxiety and help bring on sleep.  It can also repel insects.  Should not be used by pregnant queens, as it can cause miscarriage.   It is commonly found at the base of rotten trees.


Watermint- A green, leafy plant, this can be fed to individuals suffering from bellyache.  It can be found at the edges and in the shallows of the river.


Wild Garlic- A strong smelling, grass-like plant with white, round roots.  Rolling in it can disguise scent.   It can also be applied to bites or scratches to prevent infection.   It can be found near the edges of the forest.


Willow- A medium-sized tree with long, thin branches that droop down.  The small leaves are a grayish green color.  The flaky bark can be eaten in small doses to ease pain, lower inflammation, and help with diarrhea and fever.  These trees grow most often near the river.


Yarrow- A fern-like plant with soft, grayish, feathery leaves.  It can be consumed to induce vomiting, or chewed and applied to wounds to relieve pain and prevent infection.  It grows in sparse forested areas, such as at the edge of the trees or in forest clearings.


Yew- Also called deathberries.  This is a quite large and poisonous plant, identifiable by its stout, red, peeling trunk and pine-like leaves.  Its red, pitted berries grow on the stems of the needle-like leaves and are very toxic to eat.  They are sometimes used to end a suffering cat's life if they can't be helped, but only if they ask for them.  It can be found in most forests.

Here is tomorrow, just past the sunrise, my fingers reaching out.  'Cause we are believers, the guards of the skyline.  The curse can't tie us down.  We've waited so long...  We've waited long enough...

(( ... ))



Dovestar's POV


        Dovestar, leader of MistClan, stepped lightly out of the entrance to her den behind the Rockpile, blinking at the light filtering into the cave that was the camp through a hold in the roof.  It was mid-morning now, and most of the Clan was awake and abuzz, warriors deep in conversation with their fellows or rounding up their apprentices and getting ready to go out on patrol.  Dovestar let her deep copper gaze travel over her cats, pleased – as well as a bit relieved – to know that the morning’s rituals were proceeding as normal.  Given all the mysterious disappearances that had been happening over the past few moons, as well as Riverfoot’s still-unsolved death about a half-moon ago, and Redpath having been apparently killed by a fox a moon and a half before that, every morning she awoke to nothing wrong felt like a blessing from StarClan.

        Shaking off these morbid thoughts, she pricked her ears, voices originating from a pair of cats several foxlengths away near the entrance to the warrior’s dens coming to her attention.  Padding further out into the center of the cave, she recognized Wiseheart and her deputy, Watertail, in conversation about Wiseheart’s mate, Swanfeather.

        “The kits should arrive any day now, Seedpelt says,” the flame-point tom was meowing, blue eyes bright with affection and excitement.  “I just hope everything goes smoothly...”

        Dovestar smiled slightly at the good news, then moved further away to give them their privacy, heading over toward another group of cats to get a report on the dawn patrol.



Shellspots's POV


        “It’s just a mild sprain, but you should take the next day or two off to let it rest and heal.”

        Shellspots groaned as the medicine cat gave her diagnosis.  “Two days out of commission?” she complained, frowning at Seedpelt.  “But the Clan needs me - with all the deaths and disappearances as of late, everycat needs to be at their best!”

        The brown-spotted medicine cat gazed at her with calm green eyes, one ear flicking.  “The Clan can afford to keep you in camp for two days, Shellspots,” she meowed gently but firmly.  “It’s better than you winding up with a permanent limp because you pushed yourself and aggravated the injury further.”

        The tortoiseshell she-cat grumbled reluctant agreement, glaring down at the stone between her forepaws.  Stupid gopher... why did it have to dig its burrow right in the shadow of that tree - right where she couldn’t see it?

        Fennelpaw, Seedpelt’s apprentice, wandered over from the herb store just then, a couple of small leaves in his mouth and his tail in the air.  “Here you go - these should keep the swelling down and help heal that sprain faster,” he mewed cheerfully, beginning to chew the leaves up, spreading the resulting pulp over Shellspots’s lower right foreleg.  “There.  You’ll be back in commission in no time.”

        “Thanks,” Shellspots murmured, sitting up once he was finished, careful not to place too much of her weight on the injured leg.  Well, she thought, it could be worse...  I could’ve caved in the whole tunnel system, I suppose...

        With a sigh and a quick farewell to the medicine cats, she stood, limping out of the medicine alcove and into the main cavern.  Her amber eyes searched the camp for a few heartbeats before she spotted the familiar silver-shaded pelt of Bubblepool.  Thankfully, the pale she-cat hadn’t left on patrol yet.

        “Hey, Bubblepool,” the dark tortoiseshell called, heading over.  “Do you think you could take Spottedpaw out for me today?  I sprained my leg on the dawn patrol and need to stay in camp, so I won’t be able to train her.”

This is our right, this is our song, this is our moment in history.  Ten million roads turn into one.  This is our fight, where we belong.  No one can take away destiny.  So let the night cover us all - stars will never fall...

----Bubblepool & Watertail----


The young silver warrior padded a small distance from the rest of her patrol, intending to say her goodbyes to Watertail before she left, as was customary between the two. She managed to catch the tail-end of her father's conversation with Wiseheart, and at the news that her quasi-uncle's kits were soon to be born, her aqua eyes glittered with excitement and anticipation.

"Oh, that's wonderful!" She cooed adoringly, "I hope they aren't born while I'm out on patrol, I don't want to miss it!"

Watertail chuckled at her enthusiasm, then gave his daughter an affectionate lick on the forehead. "I wonder how many there'll be? This one was enough of a pawful, I can only imagine how exhausted I'd have been if there were more of her!"

"Daddy!" Bubblepool mewed with a giggle, puffing her cheeks in a mock pout, "You know I was a perfect angel!"

"You were, you were." Her father replied with a grin, nodding his head in agreement before not-so-subtly turning his head to Wiseheart and mouthing 'no she wasn't,' causing the she-cat to roll her eyes playfully.

Then, suddenly, there was a voice behind Bubblepool and she nearly jumped in fright. Flicking her head back, she saw her old mentor, Shellspots, and gave her a smile.

"Oh! Sorry, Shelspots, I didn't hear you approach!" She mewed.

(( ... ))



Wiseheart's POV


        Wiseheart looked up as Bubblepool padded over, apparently catching what he'd said.  He chuckled amusedly, whiskers twitching, at the brief banter between father and daughter.  He certainly remembered how energetic the silver-shaded she-cat had been as a kit, and, in fact, still was.  "Well, hopefully with so many paws to help wrangle them, it won't be too bad," he purred.

        Shellspots approached just then, holding up one of her forepaws, though her own whiskers twitched with humor as she caught part of the conversation, as well.  "I'm sure Bubblepool here will be more than happy to kitsit for you," she commented with amusement.  "And besides, if Emberflame can wrangle all four of her kits with no mate to help her out, I'm sure you and Swanfeather will be just fine."

        "I suppose those are both very viable arguments," Wiseheart laughed, glancing to Bubblepool with a sparkle in his eye; it was no secret that the she-cat had a deep fondness towards kits and even apprentices.  And, being like one of the family, she was certain to want to be involved in his kits' upbringing.

        One of Shellspots's ears twitched as Bubblepool turned to her, and she blinked.  "Sorry for interrupting - I was just wandering if it might be possible for Spottedpaw to tag along on your patrol," she meowed.  "I twisted my paw in a gopher hold on the dawn patrol, so I won't be able to train her today; maybe not tomorrow, either.  Seedpelt says the sprain needs time to rest."

        Wiseheart frowned sympathetically at his sister; he'd seen her come into camp a bit earlier that morning from the patrol, limping badly.  "Just a sprain?  That's good; at least there wasn't more damage done." Shellspots gave a small, noncommittal grunt; it was clear she wasn't enthused about the situation, and Wiseheart certainly couldn't blame her.

This is our right, this is our song, this is our moment in history.  Ten million roads turn into one.  This is our fight, where we belong.  No one can take away destiny.  So let the night cover us all - stars will never fall...

----Bubblepool & Watertail----


"I'd love to kitsit them!" Bubblepool squeaked joyously. She was about to say more, but Shellspots caught her attention again, and the silver-shaded warrior gasped.

"Oh no, that's horrible! I hope it gets better soon!" She mewed, moving forward to give the tortie a sympathetic nose-boop. "Of course I'll take her out! Spottedpaw's such a sweet apprentice, I'm sure she'll be a joy to train."

"Be careful, sweetheart, I'm pretty sure that's what Shellspots said before she got you, and like I said - pawful." Watertail butted in, a playful smirk on his maw. Bubblepool just poked her tongue out at him.

(( ... ))



Shellspots's POV


        The tortoiseshell's whiskers twitched again at the nose boop, her amber eyes glimmering.  "Spottedpaw's actually quite an easy apprentice," she meowed in reply, glancing over to the apprentice's den, where the she-cat in question was just emerging from the cave to sit outside with a few of the other apprentices.  "She's quite mature for her age, and quite logically-minded.  She shouldn't be too much of a pawful for you.  ...I don't think I could say the same about Hawkpaw, though," she added amusedly, watching as the pale tabby trotted out of the den behind his brother, Swiftpaw, his fur mussed and flecked with moss - it didn't appear as if he'd even attempted to groom yet that morning - and his mouth open wide as he babbled on about something.  Shellspots was glad she didn't have to train that apprentice - even though his heart was in the right place, the young tom had seemingly boundless energy and often stuck his nose in the wrong places before thinking about the possible consequences.

        "Swiftpaw is very mature, as well," Wiseheart commented, following her gaze over to the gathering of apprentices.  "And Adderpaw seems pretty level-headed, too.  Seems like this batch of apprentices is pretty laid-back, all things considered."  His voice filled with laughter.  "I have a feeling the next is going to be a bit more trouble..."

        Shellspots hummed in agreement.  What with Emberflame's large litter, and both Nightsong and Swanfeather due soon, there were bound to be a lot of kits very close in age.  Nightsong's kits were liable to be even more of a pawful than Hawkpaw, with Sunwhisker as their father - the golden-brown tabby had always been getting up to mischief in his youth, along with his brothers Stormfall and Shadowstep...  He and Stormfall still did to this day, in fact.  Shellspots frowned at that thought.  She'd never been completely comfortable around the two toms, or Shadowstep for that matter, and she wasn't sure it was just because they had come to the Clan as outsiders.  It was probably just their ebullient and adventurous personalities, she thought to herself.

This is our right, this is our song, this is our moment in history.  Ten million roads turn into one.  This is our fight, where we belong.  No one can take away destiny.  So let the night cover us all - stars will never fall...

----Bubblepool & Watertail----


"You know I was only teasing, right, Shell?" Watertail meowed, clearly amused by his friend's more serious reaction.

Bubble purred when she saw Spottedpaw, then turned back to her father and flicked her eyes back at Shellspots, gaining a confused frown in reply. His daughter rolled her eyes, then twitched an ear towards the medicine car den. This time, he seemed to get it, as his mouth parted in an 'o.'

"Shellspots..." He purred, his usually steady voice faltering the tiniest bit, as her walked past Bubblepool and to the injured warrior's side, their pelts barely touching. "Let me, ah, walk you back to the den."

Bubble watched with a cheeky twinkle in her eyes and moved over to Wiseheart to give him a knowing shouder-bump.

(( ... ))



Shellspots's POV


        Shellspots started ever-so-slightly at Watertail's voice, awakening from her brief reverie.  She turned and blinked at the tom, tilting her head slightly.  "Well, yes... of course," she replied.  "I was simply remarking at the rather... atypical nature of Spottedpaw's personality compared to many young apprentices."  Shellspots had always been among the more serious of MistClan's warriors, and wasn't one to joke around a lot - when she did, her humor was usually drier than most of her Clanmates'.

        As Watertail stood, coming rather close to her side, she felt her ears grow warm.  "It's only a sprain, you know - I'm not a cripple now," the tortoiseshell murmured amusedly, though she followed him anyway, and didn't make any attempt to move away as his fur brushed against hers.



Wiseheart's POV


        Wiseheart watched the pair head off, his curved white whiskers twitching with barely-stifled laughter, his eyes dancing with amusement.  As Bubblepool moved closer to give him a nudge with her shoulder, he turned his blue gaze to her, whispering, "I don't think they're ever going to realize what is completely obvious to us..."

This is our right, this is our song, this is our moment in history.  Ten million roads turn into one.  This is our fight, where we belong.  No one can take away destiny.  So let the night cover us all - stars will never fall...

----Watertail----


The blue tom gave a chuckle in reply, then proceeded with walking his friend to the den, not noticing his subconscious movements to be closer to the tortie.

Once they reached her nest, Watertail waited for Shellspots to lay down before purring; "There we go. Will you be okay, now?"

There was a pause, and he tilted his head as he gazed down into her beautiful amber eyes, almost losing track of his thoughts as he became lost in them. "Do you want me to stay? I was supposed to go see Dovestar in a bit, but I can cancel if you want me to."




----Bubblepool----


"That's the truth," Bubblepool giggled, giving him an amused smile. "I've tried pushing him in every way I can; getting him to catch fresh prey for her, taking her for walks along the shoreline, finding pretty rocks and shells for her, but nothing ever happens! Sometimes I wonder if he even realises that these things I'm asking of him are romantic in nature."



----Fish----

Here is tomorrow, just past the sunrise, my fingers reaching out.  'Cause we are believers, the guards of the skyline.  The curse can't tie us down.  We've waited so long...  We've waited long enough...

(( ... ))



Shellspots's POV


        As the pair padded closer to the medicine alcove, Fennelpaw, who was sorting a few piles of herbs, noticed them and looked up, smiling at them.  "None of the nests are being used right now, so go ahead and choose whichever you'd like."  Shellspots nodded to him and limped over to the little hollows in the rock face lined along the right side and back of the alcove.   She chose the nest closest to them - the first in the line.  It seemed proper to use it first.

        As she settled down, she looked up at Watertail with a slight smirk and a glimmer in her eyes.  "I'll be fine," she purred back in a drawn out, teasing tone.  She stared back at him intently as a long pause ensued, her own mind beginning to drift, when he finally spoke again.

        "Oh, don't worry about me - you should see to your duties.  You're deputy now, after all, remember?"  Her voice was warm with amusement.  Then, her eyes narrowed slightly in a playful manner.  "Though, I wouldn't complain if you came back afterward.  I'm going to get pretty bored lying here all by my lonesome all day long, after all..."



Wiseheart's POV


        The flame-point tom purred amusedly.  "I know - and I don't think she's noticed the nature of the favors, either.  I've tried dropping hints myself, but she's just clueless."  He shook his head helplessly and chuckled.  "They're both just completely oblivious."



Sunwhisker's POV


        Sunwhisker was lying outside the nursery with Nightsong, basking with his mate in the patch of mid-morning sunlight that filtered in through the gap in the roof of the cave.  The pair was sharing tongues, Nightsong washing Sunwhisker's shoulder while he helped her groom her now-difficult-to-reach back and flanks with long, rhythmic strokes.  The two were silent save for their soft purrs, which mingled together into one, steady rumble.

        Soon, however, the expectant queen winced, pulling back slightly from Sunwhisker with a grunted "Oof!"  The tom paused in his grooming to gaze down at her enlarged belly for a moment before his eyes moved up to her face, glimmering with amusement.  "Kicking again?" he asked.  "They sure are becoming active."

        Nightsong looked down at her flank with a mock-pouty expression.  "They certainly are.  I'll be glad when they're finally out - I think things are starting to get a bit cramped in there..."

        Sunwhisker purred amusedly.  "I'm not sure it's wise to be so eager - you've heard the stories," he teased.  "Kits never sleep, or so they say.  They'll be running us ragged in no time at all."  Despite his words, however, it was clear from the shine in his eyes that he was very excited for their kits to be born.  He'd been eagerly awaiting the big day since Nightsong had first told him she was pregnant, almost a moon and a half ago now.

         "Well... I'd like to think all those horror stories are exaggerations," Nightsong purred back, pale green eyes closing partway in mirth, "but with you as their father, I’m not so sure."

         "Yeeeaaah..." Sunwhisker murmured amusedly, his whiskers twitching.  "You're probably right.  StarClan knows Stormfall and I were right terrors when we were kits..."  He smiled, placing one forepaw gently over his mate's flank, his eyes gleaming with affection as he felt the tiny kicks against it.  Their movements were becoming so strong that they were visible to the eye - he could see tiny twitches all along her belly.  According to Seedpelt, it wouldn't be much more than about a quarter-moon until they were born, he thought with a rush of excitement.

         "So," Nightsong mewed after a few more heartbeats, "any plans for today?  Besides training, of course."

         "Well, Stormfall asked last night if I might want to go out hunting with him this morning, since the apprentices are due to clean out the elders' bedding," Sunwhisker replied, looking slightly uncertain.  "Would...  Would you be alright if I left for a little bit?"  He gazed at her with concern in his honey-gold eyes; he'd grown increasingly reluctant to leave his mate's side as the day of the kits' birth approached, much to his friends' amusement and Nightsong's occasional exasperation.  Stormfall had taken to comparing him to a mother pheasant clucking over her chicks; Sunwhisker wasn't sure whether to feel offended at this appraisal at all or not.

         "Ohh, just go," Nightsong grumbled, only half-teasingly.  "You hardly ever leave this stuffy old cave anymore.  Just because I can't go blundering about on adventures anymore doesn't mean you have to lie around with me all day, you know!"

        Sunwhisker pouted at her exaggeratedly.  "But I like lying around with you all day!" he protested in a high-pitched tone.  That was only partially true, however - the energetic tom had always been a free spirit, and, as much as he loved spending time with his mate, he was starting to feel a bit antsy to be doing something more active.  Training Saffronpaw helped - he adored his apprentice, and enjoyed training her - but he did miss the adventures he and Stormfall had embarked upon with Nightsong, Bubblepool, and Brightfern before his mate had become too pregnant to go gallivanting around the territory.  He sighed, getting to his paws.  "Alriiight," he agreed, a glint of humor in his eyes.  "I'll leave you alone for a bit.  I'll bring you back something good."

        "Hurry back," Nightsong teased him, her fluffy, white-tipped tail flicking slightly.

        Sunwhisker smirked with humor and rolled his eyes, leaning down to touch noses gently with his mate before moving off to locate his brother.

This is our right, this is our song, this is our moment in history.  Ten million roads turn into one.  This is our fight, where we belong.  No one can take away destiny.  So let the night cover us all - stars will never fall...

----Watertail----


"Me, leave you to wither in your moss, all alone? I would never." Watertail returned with another purr, his own eyes glinting with their own playfulness. "I'll have a quick talk with her, then come straight back. Being deputy doesn't mean I have to give up spending time with you; I'd cancel scores of patrols to sit with you while you're injured."

The last sentence he spoke with an unintentional intensity, and the Deputy quickly cleared his throat to draw attention away from it, feeling his skin heat up beneath his fur. "Because I've known you since we were apprentices, you know. You're special, to me, that is."

Well, that didn't fix things, he grimaced, shuffling his paws in an act of embarrassment.




----Bubblepool----


"Maybe we should just lose the subtlety altogether and just tell them outright." The silver-shaded she-cat meowed, amused. She had the funniest feeling that she was forgetting something... Oh, right!

"I won't keep you from your mate any longer," Bubblepool said as she took a step towards the apprentices' den. Luckily Spottedpaw had barely moved since she'd come out. "And I should go retrieve Spottedpaw for the patrol."



----Fish----

Here is tomorrow, just past the sunrise, my fingers reaching out.  'Cause we are believers, the guards of the skyline.  The curse can't tie us down.  We've waited so long...  We've waited long enough...

(( ... ))



Shellspots's POV


        The tortoiseshell's amused look slipped slightly at Watertail's intensity, and more fully at his next words, her ears beginning to burn slightly.  "Yes, yes, of course," she meowed quickly, her voice slightly flustered, which only served to make her ears heat up even more.  "I mean, you're special to me, too.  You're a very good friend."

        Her last sentence made her flinch inwardly.  She knew it was more than that - she wasn't oblivious to her own feelings, after all.  She'd held a crush on him since their early warriorhood, even before he'd met and had kits with Cloud.  She knew she was the only one he'd confided in about his secret relationship - while it wasn't technically forbidden to have a mate outside of the Clan, it was highly frowned upon, and he'd wanted to keep that information private, something she couldn't blame him for, especially after Bubblepool came to the Clan.  She'd kept his secret, and done her best to help him through the eventual breakup, despite her own feelings, but she'd never admitted how she felt to him.  It had never been the right time, and surely he didn't feel the same.

        Another voice roused her from her thoughts, and she glanced past Watertail to see Seedpelt and Fennelpaw, looking to be about to head out.  "We're off to gather herbs - we're getting low on tansy and a few other things," Seedpelt meowed, adding over her shoulder, "We'll be back soon!"

        The interruption had served to break Shellspots's train of thought, but now, with the medicine cats' absence, the awkward silence resumed once more.  She shifted in her nest and coughed awkwardly, averting her eyes for a moment before looking back to Watertail.  "Well... I suppose you should get to whatever it is you need to do," she mewed, offering him a small smile.



Wiseheart's POV


        "You could be onto something," Wiseheart replied, his whiskers twitching again.

        Everything was quiet for a few moments before Bubblepool spoke again, starting to move off.  "Of course," Wiseheart meowed, getting to his own paws.  "Swanfeather's probably wondering where I disappeared off to for so long."  He purred amusedly.  "And it looks like Spottedpaw's about ready to go."

        The tortoiseshell apprentice was beginning to look around, as if searching for her mentor.  When she couldn't find what she was looking for, she frowned confusedly.  Wiseheart couldn't blame her.  His sister was usually very punctual, especially when it came to training her apprentice.

This is our right, this is our song, this is our moment in history.  Ten million roads turn into one.  This is our fight, where we belong.  No one can take away destiny.  So let the night cover us all - stars will never fall...
