- Brackenstar slipped into the clearing with WindClan streaming behind him, his short golden-brown fur glittering a sharp silver under the full moonlight. ThunderClan had arrived already, and RiverClan and ShadowClan, too. Fourtrees was beginning to show the first small hints of leaf-fall, but there was still some time before WindClan need worry about leaf-bare.
Brackenstar wove through the crowd to approach the Great Rock, which he sprang onto with ease before dipping his head to Badgerstar. WindClan and ThunderClan's alliance had been finished for only a moon, but the WindClan leader felt a lifetime of relief. He could see that Badgerstar had matured quite a bit already since becoming leader; Brackenstar need not worry.
Valewhisper padded in beside Frostpaw, her new medicine cat apprentice. The she-cat felt a pang of anxiety for Frostpaw S the white apprentice wandered off into the throng of gathered cats. Not only was this Frostpaw's first Gathering, but it was also the longest journey the apprentice had taken since being sick as a kit.
Still, Valewhisper knew the apprentice would want to take everything in, so the medicine cat made her rounds, greeting the elders she recognized and meeting ones she didn't. The medicine cats waited for her by the foot of the Great Rock, but she took her time returning to them as she tried to keep an eye on Frostpaw.
Valewhisper was only a few tail-lengths away from Frostpaw, Tigerpounce, and a ThunderClan warrior and apprentice that she didn't know when she heard the apprentice's words to Frostpaw. Immediately Valewhisper made her way to Nightpaw, snapping, "The Gathering is a time of peace to meet the other Clans and learn from them. If you're going to behave like a spoiled rotten kit, pestering a deputy and calling names, then I should tell Badgerstar you aren't fit to mingle with the Clans yet."
The black and white she-cat narrowed her eyes at the apprentice who'd been harassing the group. "Apologize to Tigerpounce for being disrespectful, and to Frostpaw for being malicious," the medicine cat growled. She wouldn't be joining the other medicine cats until Nightpaw said sorry; she would not have unnecessary animosity at the Gathering from anyone.
After a pause Valewhisper looked at Frostpaw. "You apologize to the apprentice as well, Frostpaw," she commanded, though her voice was more gentle with the white she-cat. "We are medicine cats; we stay out of Clan rivalry, whether we're being antagonized or not. I won't hear such words from you again."
((OoC: Are we making it so that people can post before their Clan leader posts arriving? Otherwise technically only Brackenstar and Badgerstar are here with their Clans, and no one else lol))
