the best story is yet to come

RiverClan


"All cats old enough to catch their own prey, gather beneath the shell pile for a Clan meeting!"

If one were new to Stonestar, one might miss the hesitation in his voice, the way his green eyes were slightly too unfocused as he stared at camp, waiting for the meeting to coalesce. He was still lost, mourning his apprentice's death. That would be one of many things to address here. He would start positive, though; if he began with her vigil's planning, it was entirely possible he wouldn't be able to get through with the ceremonies.

As soon as enough of the Clan gathered, he would roll out his shoulders and speak, voice falling into a pattern of promotion and praise because it was easy to rely on routine when his emotions were so strong. "Let's begin with...Acornkit! You have reached the age of six moons, and it is time for you to be apprenticed. From this day on, you will be known as Acornpaw. Your mentor will be...me." He'd thought long and hard about this, worrying that some might interpret this as him trying to 'replace' Lakewhisper so quickly, but he desperately needed the distraction. He needed something to focus on more than anything, now.

"Next, Whisperingwind! Though you have plenty of Clan history, your amnesia hinders you somewhat. You will receive a temporary mentor to run you through basic assessments, tour the territories, and so on. Your mentor will be Ramsay." If anyone could keep up with the overly-flirty tomcat, it would be the equally-flirty calico.

"Now, Bearpaw, step forwards! You only recently joined us from SkyClan and you have already commenced some training, but I wish to formally welcome you to RiverClan and to confirm your mentor. You will be taught by Burnout." He doubted the strong-willed female would allow herself to be taught by anyone other than the serval, so this would have to be acceptable.

The leader paused, allowing the congratulations of the crowd to sweep him away and distract him from his next job: Lakewhisper's funeral.

Ramsay practically threw herself out of the nursery at Stonestar's call, stopping only to look back with the characteristic glint in her eyes, "Acorn! Acorn, c'mon! It's your big day! You're practically a warrior already! Why, in just moons there won't be another cat in the forest who would try to fuck with you!"

Of course, she would miss sleeping beside her daughter in the nursery (although Acorn had gotten a little too big for a shared nest a while back) but she couldn't be happier for her kit. An apprentice! Ramsay, being from twolegplace, had never had her own apprenticeship. At least, not a true one. She'd pretty much refused a mentor when she came in, but Stonestar had taught her everything she needed to know about RiverClan. For a moment, she let memories from her first swimming lesson wash over her, a small grin tugging up one side of her mouth. That had been an experience!

As more of the clan gathered, Ramsay seated herself near the front. Time seemed to drag, and she wanted nothing more than to haul every cat in the clan out of their dens by the tail. This was a special ceremony! Couldn't they be a little quicker?

And then the time came, and Stonestar called Acorn's name. Acornpaw! She was an apprentice! Her little girl was growing up! Ramsay ducked her head and began to blink rapidly. No, she wasn't crying. That would be absurd! She just... allergies. That was it.

"Acornpaw! Acornpaw!
" she yowled spiritedly, raising her head to the sky. And Stonestar would mentor her! Ramsay couldn't imagine anyone she trusted more to teacher her own kit. There was no doubt that she'd be RiverClan's best warrior within a moon!

Ramsay had expected to be able to mull over her daughter's apprenticeship from then, and paid a little less attention to the following ceremonies. That was, until her name was called.

The calico snapped her head up, eyes wide. What? Shit. She'd missed something important, hadn't she? Trying not to seem as lost as she was, she simply sat up straighter and gave a small nod as her eyes darted around madly in an effort to make sense of what had happened. Slowly, her mind pieced together what Stonestar had said while she'd been distracted. That, and the fact that everyone was looking at Whisperingwind helped her to realize that she'd been given an apprentice.

"The fuck?" she whispered under her breath, mouth open. Ramsay hadn't thought her day could get any better, but here she was, being a mentor! Like a true RiverClan cat! She'd have to remember to thank Stonestar later and assure him that she'd do her damn best to whip Whisperingwind into shape. What an honor!

Eyes fell on Bearpaw, and the serval instinctively recoiled with one paw raised hesitantly in the air. She didn't like it when everyone looked at her. Being in the center of attention was certainly not within her comfort zone, and she felt paralyzed until, slowly, the gazes began to turn away. Bearpaw let out the breath she hadn't known she was holding in and regained her composure. She glanced sideways to Burnout, who she had already been sitting beside, but said nothing.

RiverClan


He slipped from the warriors den, a skip to his step as he slipped lightly into the crowd. Settling down among his clanmates. The silvery tabby had to work to keep his charming smile in place when his amnesia was mentioned, not so much worried about his lack of remembered skills then he was the lack of any relationships in his past. He distracted himself from those thoughts by searching out the she-cat, his charming smile turning down-right flirty as he recalled her lively banter.

But he was pulled from that search when his friend was named mentor to Bearpaw, laughter bubbling in his chest. He could so easily see the two servals working together, so very different, and sent Burnout a sparkling glance before resuming his search for Ramsey.

Which shouldn’t have been hard to miss when she began shouting Acornpaws new name. The display brought back the laughter and he didn’t bother holding it in this time, eyes watering with his mirth as he stared across the way at his mentor. ”Well this is going to be fun!” The silver warrior unaware of the sudden tension and sadness that surrounded Stonestar.

Oh Starclan, could the announcements get louder? Probably. It wasn't nice when, after almost two full days of sleeplessness there was shouting and a clan's worth of voices all at once, and to be frank, Super wasn't a fan of one person talking loudly let alone a whole clan's worth. At least if Ramsay was watching Wisp it would keep him out of her fur just a bit.

Acornkit was awakened by Ramsay's excited yowling. With her typical good cheer the young bobcat shook herself of moss and trotted out of the nursery. She purred a good morning to her mother and went to join the meeting, her short tail quivering with excitement.

When Stonestar started calling out the announcement, she kneaded the ground excitedly. And he announced her first! She shot to her paws, short tail going straight up and her whiskers pricked forward. She let out a delighted squeal of glee and padded forward to join Stonestar, going to touch her nose to his shoulder as she was pretty sure you were supposed to do.

She was a 'paw! All grown up!

decided to break it

RiverClan


burnout was there, had been the whole time really, sandwiched between his niece-turned-apprentice and wisp. he returned bearpaw's sideways glance with one of his own. he was used to the stares, since he'd been quite the feature of speculation from his arrival, but he could understand her nervousness. as wisp shot him a look, he returned it with a twinkling one of his own, already knowing his paws were full with bearpaw.

he'd turn her into a warrior riverclan could be proud of though, that much was for sure. he simply dipped his head at his own acknowledgement, unable to stop himself from grinning proudly.
