Ch.11: Sunset (The New Prophecy)copyright protection13PENANAwmUKleTGbk

Summary: Revised version from the actual book. Darkstripe finds himself in No Stars, but has a change of heart. He doesn’t want to be like Tigerstar anymore, so he tries to find Starclan. He wants to warn Tigerstar’s relations about Tigerstar’s plans. Can he do it, or will he be too late? Read to find out.copyright protection13PENANAjBRrTNu9yG

            Darkstripe ran along in an unfamiliar forest.copyright protection13PENANA23k8a1Pqhd

            Just then, he spotted his longtime friend. His friend approached him.copyright protection13PENANAWNzQyU5sBg

            “Darkstripe,” he greeted.copyright protection13PENANANVSEmMrQW0

            “Tigerstar,” he greeted back. “Why are you here? Where’s Starclan?”copyright protection13PENANAxY3R7dTWEa

            “There is no Starclan. Starclan doesn’t come here. This isn’t a place for them; only for cats like us.”copyright protection13PENANA9AYJrxEx0f

            “I’ll find a way to them.”copyright protection13PENANAONbHsytUoq

            “You can’t. There’s not a way. There never will be.”copyright protection13PENANAVWoYOvcHsR

            “Let me come with you.”copyright protection13PENANASCsRmUo0rp

            “Sorry, Darkstripe; this place is where cats go their own way. I’m going my own way. I’ve learned how to visit my sons in their dreams. Real soon, I’ll make them see it my way. Firestar hasn’t won yet. There’ll soon learn if they want power, they must do it my way, or there’ll never rule. I’ve already influenced Hawkfrost. I must now try with Brambleclaw. If he refuses, I can threaten cats close to him. Then he’ll listen. I must go now.”copyright protection13PENANAgfcrWFZqzo

            As he walked away, he called out to Tigerstar.copyright protection13PENANAQulft9LGRe

            “What is this place!?”copyright protection13PENANAxJR0BdUZdl

            “No Stars!” Tigerstar called back before he disappeared.copyright protection13PENANApuBBVyhVYQ

            Darkstripe didn’t want him to do that to all his kin. He wanted to warn Brambleclaw in his dreams, before it was too late. He knew Starclan wasn’t around in No Stars, but he said anyway to them, “Starclan, help me to go into their dreams to warn them. Maybe even warn Leaf paw or Cinderpelt.”copyright protection13PENANAkPlF5OPRuH

            As if they heard, the place changed to a familiar place and there stood Bluestar in the grass.copyright protection13PENANA52rX22aW2o

            He approached the former Thunderclan leader.copyright protection13PENANAhrTT3OrkKq

            “Bluestar, I’m sorry for what Tigerstar did to you and what I did. I’ve changed since I died and went to No Stars. I want to warn someone.”copyright protection13PENANAa4fvKljzcO

            “I know of how you have changed. I understand that you were following him, not because he influenced you, but because he was your only friend and you couldn’t let him be in exile alone. So you followed him until you died. Now you understand that you did wrong. His father was just as evil and ambitious; now then. I’ll grant you what you want; the power to come into cat’s dreams to warn them.”copyright protection13PENANAhiQIfTKqPM

            “Thanks, Bluestar.”copyright protection13PENANAP7dI0gxrAi

            “Come. Follow me.”copyright protection13PENANASLm7g7tAHG

            He obeyed and soon was standing among Starclan.copyright protection13PENANApYYgGe9qFY

            Leafpool and Crowfeather burst into camp, hoping to save the clan from the badger attack. He hope vanished when she saw they were too late. She was worried for her clan, but most of all, she was worried for her mother, father, and sister.copyright protection13PENANAdu6qd6HLyi

            When they entered, cats gave her mean looks.copyright protection13PENANA3q3pykx2Ue

            She realized they weren’t happy.copyright protection13PENANAIkcGATVJkA

            They don’t trust me anymore after I abandoned them.copyright protection13PENANAIx5OYiVF3t

            She walked inside the camp, crossed the clearing, and was greeted happily by Sandstorm, Squirrelflight, and Goldenflower. She was glad that some were happy to see her.copyright protection13PENANAX6U1wtl4vg

            After being greeted, she ordered Brambleclaw to tell wounded cats who could walk, to come to her den.copyright protection13PENANAidAvUaoPUJ

            He obeyed.copyright protection13PENANAqCgvqeOlUS

            She went to tend to the cats that couldn’t walk. When was done with them, she went to the Medicine den.copyright protection13PENANAPSZKTveezJ

            When she entered the den, she saw Ferncloud with three kits. Her mate was Dustpelt. Then she froze. Cinderpelt lay on her side. She was still.copyright protection13PENANAvSX5oSgMHa

            She turned to see Brambleclaw tell her, “I’m sorry. Cinderpelt is with Starclan now.”copyright protection13PENANAv7MMDd0ryV

            Not wanting to believe him, she went over to her mentor and touched her pelt with her nose. She smelled of death. He was right. He was beside her a moment later, talking to her. “She died saving and protecting Ferncloud, while she gave birth to her three kits.”copyright protection13PENANAkoNj9GOnVo

            Ferncloud spoke. “It’s my fault. I didn’t even try to protect her.”copyright protection13PENANA6qh4wFWMsE

            Dustpelt tried to soothe her.copyright protection13PENANAWYMJKpWLRv

            “I promise you, Leafpool. She died of an honorable death,” Brambleclaw said soothingly. “I’ll tell Firestar.”copyright protection13PENANAGbUtu3ajq5

            She heard his paw steps fade away, as he left the Medicine den.copyright protection13PENANAIxvZB1FyO7

            She silently spoke. “Cinderpelt, if you’re still with me, speak to me.” But all she felt was the strong smell of death.copyright protection13PENANAcL5YuQorCf

            She left her den after she was done with the wounded.copyright protection13PENANAWirQMWTWfk

            She padded up to Firestar her father.copyright protection13PENANA1XRxXtzC1n

            “Come to my den. I must see to your wounds.”copyright protection13PENANAKe8QcDGB4j

            He obeyed and followed her there.copyright protection13PENANAQ1BiSoeMkt

            She had to stop thinking of him as her dad, she told herself.copyright protection13PENANA6mrYUpru1t

            She soon found Brambleclaw. His left shoulder was wounded. When he refused, she narrowed her eyes at him.copyright protection13PENANARMH0CTEjvJ

            “What help will you be if that bite gets infected?”copyright protection13PENANACmKeECCSoX

            At that, he followed her to her den to be fixed with herbs.copyright protection13PENANAmvjOtedUIf

            After she was done with the warrior he went to put the Elder’s den together.copyright protection13PENANAnA14BEYfXt

            Just then, the warrior spotted a few friends. He bounded over to them.copyright protection13PENANAYzQJNumpnK

            “Brooke, Stormfur, what are you doing here?”copyright protection13PENANAnKgGyJVMED

            “We’re visiting here to help Thunderclan. Then we’re staying in Riverclan,” Stormfur told the warrior.copyright protection13PENANA21d46OJ54G

            He must’ve seen the looks on Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight's faces, because he continued. “We’re staying in the forest for good. I can’t stand to try choosing Clan or Tribe anymore. Brook has decided to come with me. She wants to learn how to hunt in the forest. Now what can we do to help you with?”copyright protection13PENANAz2gpM3U8th

            The warrior spoke.copyright protection13PENANATQ29xBSsnx

            “Brook, you go catch us fresh-kill. I mean prey. Stormfur, you help us prepare our dens. I’ll start with the warrior’s den. You start with the Queen’s den.” With that, the cat’s obeyed.copyright protection13PENANA5qzjvG8eLc

            With every cat’s help, they were able to rebuild the dens. But during the badger’s attack, a few cats had gone to Starclan. Sootfur, Cinderpelt, and Darkpelt. The cats shared tongues with them for the last time, while Leafpool went around camp, checking on the wounded and their wounds.copyright protection13PENANAVlfbL1eF9I

            As she looked for Marigold, she silently hoped her mentor would forgive her. Then she thought maybe the former Medicine cat blamed her for not being in the camp when she needed her the most. Then she thought that Cinderpelt held a grudge for her leaving. Then she thought about how Crowfeather was handling. She wondered how his Clan was reacting to his return. Were they welcome or unwelcome?copyright protection13PENANAX3zZc6A5zY

            When night came, she settled down in her mentors’ moss nest. She slept, smelling Cinderpelt's scent.copyright protection13PENANACFpbYUR79D

            She dreamed she was in the forest looking for prey.copyright protection13PENANAj4ZyfKAuqK

            Suddenly, a cat came out. The cat spoke.copyright protection13PENANAdnNMnZSX5s

            “Don’t be afraid, Leafpool. I’m Silverstream. There’s someone who wants to speak to you.”copyright protection13PENANAWI7lU6gMdp

            A dark, black cat with a white stripe down its back came up to them and sat by Silverstream.copyright protection13PENANApwup5KaFeA

            Stormfur's mother spoke.copyright protection13PENANAprYddld6ji

            “This is Darkstripe. He has had a change of heart, so don’t be afraid. He was once in Shadowclan as Tigerstar’s deputy. But he’s good now. Now listen to what he has to say. He’s in Starclan now.”copyright protection13PENANAyf0GBUMRGZ

            She bowed her head to Silverstream and then turned her attention to Darkstripe.copyright protection13PENANAh6vLwBvGgK

            “Leafpool, I need your help to warn Brambleclaw and Firestar. When I saw Tigerstar in No Stars, he told me he wants to visit Brambleclaw in his dreams. He already influenced Hawkfrost. He wants them to be like him, but more clever. If Brambleclaw refuses, Tigerstar will threaten him. Maybe kill some cats in their dreams that Brambleclaw is close to. You must warn them before they find Tigerstar in their dreams. If they learn too much from him, they could rule over the Clans and the Sun-drown Place. Do this for me; For Starclan; For your Clan mates. You must warn Mothwing, too.”copyright protection13PENANAhGcfUqB7xU

            “I will,” she promised him, bowing her head.copyright protection13PENANAp5aqMLlyC2

            She watched, as the cats disappeared as they walked away.copyright protection13PENANAxU93FFEbmV

            She awoke at sunrise to search for Brambleclaw. He was sleeping in the warriors’ den.copyright protection13PENANAWDC8SwytD5

            “Brambleclaw,” she whispered.copyright protection13PENANAo3bytXjPwW

            He woke up to see her.copyright protection13PENANAR3Q16wGLH2

            She continued to speak in a whisper to him. “Follow me. I need to tell you something important. It involves your kin.”copyright protection13PENANAGDFiMyOk1s

            He got to his paws slowly, as to not disturb any cats, and followed her out of the camp in the heart of the forest.copyright protection13PENANAqpvCYZAhO6

            “What’s going on?” he asked her.copyright protection13PENANAdGa3Hhzn2h

            “Silverstream and Darkstripe visited me in my dream. Darkstripe has had a change of heart and is now in Starclan. They know what will happen and what is to come. They want me to warn you, Firestar, and the rest of Tigerstar’s kin.”copyright protection13PENANAqJV61HEQ2G

            “Warn us of what?”copyright protection13PENANAit6N54MGlA

            “That Tigerstar will come into your dreams and teach you everything he knows and you’ll overtime, rule over all and everything. Just like Tigerstar once tried to do. But his main thing is to get back at Firestar.”copyright protection13PENANANzhXDYfdmh

            That morning, Leafpool told her father that his arch enemy is still trying to hurt him, and what he plans to do. After she was done, he dismissed her and then told Sandstorm.copyright protection13PENANAuM0pS27xS9

            While he told his mate, Leafpool told Tawnypelt and Moth wing without being detected. She soon slipped back into camp and Squirrelflight was told by Brambleclaw.copyright protection13PENANAdbCkYIoLpK

            A few days later, Daisy’s kit, Berrykit, was missing from the camp.copyright protection13PENANAmcjDaWBq9Y

            Sandstorm, Brambleclaw, and Dustpelt soon found him in a trap. That was meant for foxes, not cats. They soon got him out.copyright protection13PENANAIEKJ4DLbbE

            After Leafpool fixed him up, Berry kit only had a stumpy tail.copyright protection13PENANAkpPXJOG7A5

            At the Gathering, each leader told what was going on.copyright protection13PENANARWibAt7cUh

            One-Star had nothing to say Leopard star was finding it hard for food, Firestar told of the badger attack, and of who died and that they weren’t weak. Then he spoke of his patrol seeing a few Shadowclan cats and smelling fresh scent markers made from Shadowclan, which were in a yard of Thunderclan territory.copyright protection13PENANAaCVVlZy7bK

            Blackstar announced to the tabby tom, “We have stretched our territory to find prey. Twolegs frighten the prey.” One of his warriors said, “Yes. It’s getting harder to find prey. We only wish that Thunderclan and Wind clan share their territory with Shadowclan and Riverclan. Riverclan are also finding it hard to find enough prey.copyright protection13PENANAMw9CtSqaZ1

            “Never!” hissed One-star.copyright protection13PENANAgRYy2y29KW

            Just then, war broke out.copyright protection13PENANArVznQUnp1y

            Brambleclaw tried to rescue Dustpelt from a Shadowclan warrior.copyright protection13PENANA9N4ipyaQIa

            When the cats heard their leader’s yowls to stop, they stopped.copyright protection13PENANASY1Qx3oAd9

            Firestar said that the meeting was over.copyright protection13PENANAxF462U0pj2

            Before Leafpool went to join her clan, she overheard Mothwing and Hawkfrost.copyright protection13PENANAYsQ3LgBV7k

            “One day we’ll rule the forest. We would’ve too, if the leaders hadn’t stopped the fighting and if that kittypet hadn’t called off the Gathering,” Hawkfrost told her.copyright protection13PENANA6Zi7PQbeqp

            “You may want to rule over all, but I won’t do it; and what about Tigerstar? You have his same ambition and someday that’ll kill you.”copyright protection13PENANAnX4r47m5xG

            “No. You’re wrong. I’m not like him. I’ll learn from his mistakes. I’ll do the opposite; but first, those arrivals must go; alive or dead; Firestar, too. After all, they don’t have a deputy. Graystripe was taken away and he’ll never come back in time. That is, if he ever does. And if he does, I’ll be waiting for that fur ball. And when Firestar’s dead, the clan will join one of the other Clans. I’ll pick off each leader until I’m leader. And Stormfur and Brook are gone. Either back in the mountains or long dead, never to be seen again.”copyright protection13PENANA8v9YyUfaQn

            Then he left with his Clan.copyright protection13PENANAuWnM4cDfq4

            “I’m sorry you had to hear that,” Mothwing told her.copyright protection13PENANAFO1Jg6QDbn

            “It’s okay. I never have trusted him, and now I know I was right not to,” Leafpool said.copyright protection13PENANAjjTsisnyCd

            Leafpool couldn’t help but think how he look when he talked like that to his sister. It was like he had become the next Tigerstar!copyright protection13PENANAV6aiTevwuW

            “Is Heavy step okay?” asked Leafpool. He was an elder who had Green cough.copyright protection13PENANAB9KCS1JJEU

            “No. He needs cat mint, but I can’t find any.”copyright protection13PENANA7Ye1qwtO45

            “Listen. Mudfur, came to me recently and told me to tell you that it’s just off the thunder path away from the pool.”copyright protection13PENANA20cci6rODV

            “Tell him thanks.”copyright protection13PENANAKe4vRXwAHb

            That night, that picture of Hawkfrost had haunted her dreams.copyright protection13PENANAuP9JQAfkok

            She dreamt that she saw Hawkfrost in a forest turning into the evil Tigerstar. Then he went after her.copyright protection13PENANAqqkCDDJ4sm

            She awoke from her dream terrified; panting like she had actually ran in real life from the evil Tigerstar. She knew exactly that Starclan had sent it as a message. Hawkfrost was going to try and kill her.copyright protection13PENANAZcA4Ir2f1K

            Brambleclaw woke to Fern cloud's yowl. He was told that Daisy and her kits were gone.copyright protection13PENANAqwzzgq9vKy

            Firestar had a Clan meeting and he agreed for Cloudtail and Brambleclaw to fetch Daisy, but if she wanted to stay, then come back to camp.copyright protection13PENANAQaYbNBPwGh

            At dawn, the two cats went to the horse place where Daisy and her kits lived. Smoky helped them find her in a barn along with her kits. Because her kits wanted to live in the forest, she agreed.copyright protection13PENANASFutKcUNrW

            The next day at sun high, they came back to the forest to live forever.copyright protection13PENANAxRt7rJxAfh

            A moon later, Firestar sent Brambleclaw on a mission to check out Riverclan and Wind clan, after hearing about twolegs and their kits in their territory.copyright protection13PENANA85s7hfJ6Mp

            The young tabby tom warrior thought there wasn’t any trouble. He saw and smelled plenty of prey.copyright protection13PENANAnE5R7Q42Dv

            Just then, he saw the two Riverclan cats. The two were Stormfur and Brook Where Small Fish Swim; also known as Brook.copyright protection13PENANAZbnsiPcPqr

            Stormfur tried to tell Brook to stop, as she killed a squirrel one paw in Shadowclan territory. Then Hawkfrost appeared. He accused Brook of stealing Shadowclan prey; then told them to go back to camp. They followed him home to their camp.copyright protection13PENANA7zxzGOPqUB

            Without any cat knowing, he followed them.copyright protection13PENANAPigUanLeqo

            He found a tree he could look over into the camp. He could hear and see cats. When Hawkfrost made Stormfur mad, he leaped and attacked him. Brook told him to stop, but she didn’t know how to fight. Back in the mountains, she caught prey. She never fought.copyright protection13PENANAKpz8SRX4Hn

            Leopardstar told Blackclaw, Mistyfoot, and another warrior to pull them apart. They then stopped fighting. Because Stormfur attacked Hawkfrost, his leader thought he forgot the warrior code and told him and his mate to leave, because they didn’t belong anymore.copyright protection13PENANAwOW4nDTc3O

            When they left the camp, Brambleclaw climbed down the tree, ran after them, and they followed him behind a bush so they wouldn’t be seen while talking. He invited them into Thunderclan camp and they agreed.copyright protection13PENANAOS64NgsyvS

            Brambleclaw entered the camp and told Firestar about other Clans calling Thunderclan weak; then told him that he needed a new deputy if he wanted all clans, plus his own, to be strong. Brambleclaw knew that other clans saw them as weak, because of no deputy. He also knew that the clans weren’t thinking right, because they didn’t have a deputy.copyright protection13PENANAXfixoaplf6

            Just then, Sandstorm came in and sat by the leader.copyright protection13PENANAIMUFQiiKvm

            “It’s time for you to leave,” she said softly. He then left.copyright protection13PENANAyjeEn2VPBr

            Firestar went to Leaf pool's den to ask if he should appoint a deputy. If she thought Graystripe was gone and never coming back.copyright protection13PENANAIzG164bvqr

            “Wait here,” she told him.copyright protection13PENANAC9dxO4P7Pl

            She went to Stormfur to tell him what he need to know from Graystripe’s son. Brook and Squirrelflight went to practice some fighting moves.copyright protection13PENANAtnEI22LYSn

            After Leafpool watched Stormfur and her dad talk, she saw her dad climb onto the Rock Ledge for a Clan meeting.copyright protection13PENANApBW5C3aOzB

            Approval rose through the clan when he said he had appointed a new deputy.copyright protection13PENANAfbKtIzyyHn

            Right before moon high, Starclan sent her a message. It was of Brambles protecting Thunderclan. She told her father and he told them that Brambleclaw was deputy. When the Clan didn’t agree, he explained why. Afterward, every cat congratulated him except for Ashfur.copyright protection13PENANAUbLzUNBFLu

            As Leafpool watched, she thought she saw Tigerstar beside him. With a shock, she realized his spirit had been beside him when his son had become deputy of Thunderclan.copyright protection13PENANA2a5ZgI2rwB

            A few nights later, the Medicine cats went to the Moon pool and she had a dream from Starclan. Spottedleaf gave her a message.copyright protection13PENANA2MMNfvmO44

            “Before there is peacecopyright protection13PENANAbYfXx9K9Ow

            Blood will spill bloodcopyright protection13PENANADRHJQXsSpY

            And the lake will run red.”copyright protection13PENANAusLgf0MCPQ

            When Brambleclaw met up with Hawkfrost, he heard something. He asked him what that was and Hawkfrost said it was just some prey being caught. Brambleclaw said it wasn’t and followed the sound of the cat in trouble, only to see Firestar caught in a trap. He went over to dig the stick out, but was attacked by Hawkfrost. Brambleclaw made Hawkfrost fall off him. While he was down, Brambleclaw dug so it would loosen. Hawkfrost then came after him again and Brambleclaw stared into his amber eyes. He realized that he would have to kill him. He threw him off again and dug for the stick again. The string loosened all together and his leader was free; then his leader layed down.copyright protection13PENANAG1OWYm5IvU

            Hawkfrost pinned him down. As he reached for the Thunderclan deputy’s neck, Brambleclaw raked his claws across his underbelly. Then with huge strength and courage, he threw him into the trap. Hawkfrost soon died.copyright protection13PENANAf9MWTDUlwj

            As he stared into the distance, his leader spoke.copyright protection13PENANAk0L5h163EV

            “Brambleclaw, you did well. I’m proud of you.”copyright protection13PENANAUlWIhU5nDB

            When Leafpool got there, she saw that Hawkfrost was dead and his blood looked like the pool of blood that Starclan had shown her in the dream.copyright protection13PENANAiSK4ODIIZe
