Many seasons ago, a flood rampaged through the forest, which was home to four Clans: ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan. In the end, it destroyed the entire forest, causing the Clans to get lost in the process. The Clans traveled to a far away land, away from all familiar areas. Many cats died on the journey, leaving just a pitiful few left. The few survivors became kittypets, rogues, or stayed as part of their Clan, trying to bring them back together. Eventually, the Clans true ancestry was lost beneath everything. No one could answer the question of who founded the original four Clans. The stories and tales of the "Old Life", when they lived peacefully in the forest were lost, the only things that remained were the names of the Clans. Everything seemed grim for the remaining Clan descendants. The Clans were just known as groups, nothing more and nothing less. But, hope shone through eventually, when four brave cats decided to finally restablish the Clans under new identities. The four cats went by the name of: Creek, Summit, Pine, and Dark. They gave names to the Clans once again, named after themselves and their territories, creating the Clans as we know them.
This is how it should be, and this is how it always will be.
SummitClan: These cats are considered to be descendants of WindClan, but some Clans consider them not one of the original four due to how they have changed. With lean bodies and thick fur, they have adapted from life on the moors to life on the mountains.
PineClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of ThunderClan, they live in the thick forest where they use the undergrowth as an advantage. Their muscular shoulders make them excellent fighters.
DarkClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of ShadowClan, but have adopted being quick instead of relying on brute strength to win their battles. Their teeth are known to be the sharpest in the world, while their territory, the darkest in the current lands.
CreekClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of RiverClan, considered the most "pure" of all the Clans due to them being so alike to their ancestors. They are excellent swimmers, and take a lot of pride into their skills.

The bubbly molly snorted when Loki said he visited his brother. "I can't believe I couldn't smell the PineClan scent on you..." Gingertail took a few seconds to think of what else she was going to say. "I'm not going to tell him, but I still think that you should tell him," she said, slightly frustrated at herself for not being able to smell such a horrible scent.

Loki nodded and he looked over to the leader "Well if you want to accompany me I'm going to tell him now." he said before quickly getting up. The snowy white tom started to head towards the leader his head held high if he was going to be kicked out of the clan he might as well leave a brave warrior. He cleared his throat next to the leader "May I speak to you sir somewhere more private?" he asked. ☽ Ash ☾,
Salmonfoot nodded agreeably to her Leader, a gleam of understanding in her eyes. She knew where he was coming from, he wouldn't want to rush and choose the wrong cat when the choices were so slim. As he mentioned the other Clans, she scrunched up her nose a bit. "Well, no matter how they're doing I doubt they'd try to start a fight with us, I mean..." She trailed off a bit, wanting to justify her statement but being to proud to admit that the other Clans must pity them in their small state. "Besides, we haven't seen the others since the gathering, and their numbers also seemed small even then. So, we can't be doing the worst... CreekClan can always heal from things like these as well, we are the most resilient!"
She flicked her ears as she fumbled to comfort her Leader, before swiping her lips with her tongue to clear the bits of prey lingering there and on her whiskers, and she shoved the rest of the water-vole away with a calico paw, careful not to get her claws stuck on its fur. "I'm sure if we stick with the Code, StarClan will guide us through these troubling times. We have been blessed with a strong Leader, things can surely only get better from here." She smiled as she complimented her Leader, before quickly dropping her smile as another cats padded up to them. The Warrior sat as still as a stone, her expression almost grim. She wasn't moving for any kittypet... "Well, me and Sparrowstar were just having a nice conversation.." She meowed, her claws prickling the ground just slightly as she watched the two Warriors. "But I suppose our talk will have to wait, I assume they must have something very pressing to say." Didn't your mother ever teach you manners? She thought to herself, thinking it was a bit rude for a cat to interrupt a Leader's talk, but she wouldn't dare say it out loud. Certainly not with Sparrowstar and Gingertail around.
Gingertail nodded and followed her ex-kittypet accomplice. At least he is telling him now. She sat down a bit behind Loki and waited for him to start moving again. Her ears flicked as she noticed Salmonfoot's mood seeming to change a bit, understandably. "Loki, maybe we could wait?" -- Sparrowstar exhaled heavily before replying to his warrior's statement, "you do have an excellent poi-" before he could finish, Loki, an ex-kittypet he allowed into the Clan, who still doesn't have a warrior name yet, asked him to speak in private. "Is this about your warrior name? If so it can wait until a bit later, I was just speaking with Salmonfoot here. If it's anything more important, sorry Salmonfoot, I will have to continue our conversation in a bit..." Awaiting a response, and hoping that he made sense, the CreekClan leader stood up. I wonder what this could be about if it isn't his name... I couldn't imagine something that is important enough to stop my conversation with a fellow clanmate...

"No its not about my warrior name I actually don't really want one its something else but I don't want to deal with eaves droppers." Loki said flicking his tail annoyed at how Salmonfoot was looking at him. He knew that Salmonfoot didn't like kitty-pets but that doesn't mean he deserves to be hated because of his past. ☽ Ash ☾, Ғiѳгұ,
Sparrowstar nodded and slowly made his way to his den. "Alright. Sorry Salmonfoot, I'll be back in a moment. Loki, follow me please." The brown tom jumped up onto one rock, then another, then the final rock platform that held his den, and made his way in, allowing the mist from one of the falls to cool him down. Sparrowstar sat down and waited for the white tomcat to tell him what was up. Ғiѳгұ, LunaTheMoon,

Loki followed his leader quickly, the clumsy tom almost slipped off one of the rocks but he eventually reached the final rock platform. He then sat down infront of Sparrowstar "I have been told now by Gingertail that I should tell you that my brother is Goldenstar of PineClan, his real name is Odin and he is basically my older brother even though we where from the same litter." he explained his head held high he was proud to be related to his brother not because he is a clan leader but because how wonderful and wise his brother is. ☽ Ash ☾
Sparrowstar listened to the tom, paying close attention to his jumbled words. "Loki... Why didn't you tell me this earlier? This isn't something you should keep a secret, especially when I was gracious enough to let you join my clan," he said, voice louder than how he meant to have it. I should have known something was up when he smelled like PineClan all those times... The leader thought in silence before continuing on, "if your brother, Goldenstar, is leader, why didn't you just join PineClan?" Sparrowstar enunciated the leaders warrior name. StarClan gave him nine lives and treated him as one of their own, he should use his bestowed name instead of a kittypet one, at least that is what the brown tomcat thought.

Loki lowered his head "Truthfully I found this clan and you accepted me before I ever knew my brother was in PineClan and even now that he is a clan leader my loyalty is to Creekclan." he said. He puffed his chest out trying to look like a strong warrior but he just made himself look more like a giant ball of fluff. ☽ Ash ☾,
Blinking her eyes open as she woke up, she smacked her chops as she slowly rose up. What time was it? Surely she didn't sleep in too late, she didn't want to hear an earful from anybody. Judging from the light that filtered through the den's entrance, she hadn't slept for too long. Stretching out each individual leg, she quickly groomed herself so that she didn't look like such a mess.
Stepping out of the Apprentices' den and into the camp's clearing, she glanced over at the several cats that were out in the clearing. Among them included Sparrowstar and her mentor, but the clan leader seemed busy talking to a giant white fuzzball. What was he all fluffed up for? It wasn't really impressing anybody. It certainly didn't impress her at least. "Don't even know why Sparrowstar took in a kittypet like him..." She muttered quietly under her breath. It wasn't like he was going to magically know what it was like to struggle as a warrior.
Sticking her tail straight up in the air arrogantly, she practically pranced over to Salmonfoot and bounced in front of her once she was close enough. "Salmonfoot~ are we going to be doing any training today? I haven't been out of camp yet." Her mentor looked a little tired, but her day was just getting started. "I'm ready for anything."

Ebonypaw flicked his ear in his sleep as he heard Shimmerpaw get up. He decided if she was waking up it was about time for him to get up as well. The black fluffy apprentice scanned the camp for his mentor and when he saw that she was sitting next to Loki and Sparrowstar he couldn't help but wonder what they where talking about. Ebonypaw then thought about possibly eaves dropping on the three older cats. The maine coon starting to sneak towards the leader's den, once he got to the first rock jump he tried his best to get up with success. He then made his way up slowly and once he got to the last jump that led to the platform where the three cats where speaking he suddenly slipped and was hanging off the edge. Ebonypaw screamed in fear and started to panic. ☽ Ash ☾, Ғiѳгұ, Solaris,
Shimmerpaw LunaTheMoon, Her jaw practically dropped as she watched her denmate hang from the top of the Water Stone. Sure she knew that he wasn't as bright as she was (who could be? no one, that's who), but to end up in such a precarious situation within the camp... Ebonypaw had achieved the unachievable. While she stared in both amusement and horror for several seconds, she glanced from him down to the pool of water at the bottom. He was lucky to have a smart denmate, because she was sure that it'd take longer for anyone else to think of her idea.
"Just fall into the water!" She called out. Was it the best idea? Probably not. But it was the quickest and the safest. If he had slipped on some loose stones, what was there to stop another cat from doing the same while going up there to save his sorry fluffy tail? Hopefully he was clean, because she was not going to be drinking any dirty water.

Ebonypaw whimpered "No way I'm not getting water in my fur right now and also don't you see the freakin spike like rocks down there?!" he screamed loudly. The apprentice tried his best to keep his grip hoping either of the cats infront of him would help.
Loki turned "Oh no." he said not caring about the conversation he was having with the leader he instantly sprung into action and tried to grab the apprentices scruff but the small fluffy cat was squirming to much. ☽ Ash ☾,,Ғiѳгұ,Solaris,
Salmonfoot was distracted by a youthful voice as she faced the others, immediately turning. She couldn't help but grin as she looked down at the excited Shimmerpaw, opening her multicolored jaw to speak. "Well, certainly. After all-" Her brown furrowed as she was quickly cut off by a howling Apprentice, hanging from a shear ledge. Growling under her breath, she called up to the Apprentice, obviously angered before she took action. "Get down from there! What do you think you're doing?" As her words wouldn't have been any help, she followed Loki quickly up the stones, her extra claws allowing her to easily grip the rocky edges. She pushed the white tom aside as he failed to help Ebonypaw, and quickly grabbed the black scruff herself. She clamped her jaws firmly on him to make sure he wouldn't slip, before swinging the young tom onto the ground beside her and Loki. Her neck was sore with the effort of lifting the tom, even if he was young, and she almost immediately dropped him onto the rocks without being sure if he even had a footing, and began to nudge him quickly down the rocks until they reached the ground.
Huffing with frustration, she stared intensely into Ebonypaw's eyes, her own blazing with anger. "What do you think you were doing?" She barked. "You almost killed yourself, and your Clan mate could have gotten hurt too! Were you even thinking?"
LunaTheMoon, Solaris, sorry that it's kind of shitty, I'll start posting with the others maybe later tonight or tomorrow
"At midnight; All the lights go out... And we wheel out a ferrari...Only it's not a ferrari...
Watching tensely as her clanmates worked to save Ebonypaw, she felt a pang of guilt that she couldn't do more. Well it was his own fault for being so big, if she had tried to help him she would have been squashed like a bug. While she was also a little disappointed that he wouldn't follow through with her idea, it was mainly because he didn't end up being cold and soaking wet. Now that was a sight she'd love to see.
She relaxed as soon as Salmonfoot had gotten him down and on the ground, and hid her face as she nearly laughed as her mentor gave the other apprentice a thorough tongue lashing. Sure it was a little mean, but he was the one who got himself into such a mess in the first place. Straightening herself, she looked back at the other cats with a straight face. For all others could tell, she was just a little overwhelmed with emotion. Curling her tail around her paws, she waited for them to finish.
