Ch.11: Sunset (The New Prophecy)copyright protection34PENANAFklzYokyjD

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 protection34PENANA74XUqIf5qA

            Darkstripe ran along in an unfamiliar forest.copyright protection34PENANAvd5aU2pUBZ

            Just then, he spotted his longtime friend. His friend approached him.copyright protection34PENANA7hjtQhSbQc

            “Darkstripe,” he greeted.copyright protection34PENANAOXgMRHu7MV

            “Tigerstar,” he greeted back. “Why are you here? Where’s Starclan?”copyright protection34PENANAHi9Ns3PSYr

            “There is no Starclan. Starclan doesn’t come here. This isn’t a place for them; only for cats like us.”copyright protection34PENANAR5JbyzsrKj

            “I’ll find a way to them.”copyright protection34PENANADzgUm8BQfn

            “You can’t. There’s not a way. There never will be.”copyright protection34PENANAMXFVK8YA0W

            “Let me come with you.”copyright protection34PENANA1R1L2Akv25

            “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 protection34PENANAOFF5A1ebSu

            As he walked away, he called out to Tigerstar.copyright protection34PENANAzErezcmxNn

            “What is this place!?”copyright protection34PENANAuOevzh6UN8

            “No Stars!” Tigerstar called back before he disappeared.copyright protection34PENANA0COGIoHWAA

            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 protection34PENANAq9eSnO4KlR

            As if they heard, the place changed to a familiar place and there stood Bluestar in the grass.copyright protection34PENANA7QGmlgEsbr

            He approached the former Thunderclan leader.copyright protection34PENANABc4pSMOAIo

            “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 protection34PENANAa8xo0Vd5Fy

            “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 protection34PENANAXNpD9KUOd5

            “Thanks, Bluestar.”copyright protection34PENANAgOhkea62KO

            “Come. Follow me.”copyright protection34PENANAqUXXjYSw3y

            He obeyed and soon was standing among Starclan.copyright protection34PENANA51luEvfzks

            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 protection34PENANAEAhWUv60yQ

            When they entered, cats gave her mean looks.copyright protection34PENANAOYLMW4KPBO

            She realized they weren’t happy.copyright protection34PENANAnGPJaufq3z

            They don’t trust me anymore after I abandoned them.copyright protection34PENANASI9aE3FL4d

            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 protection34PENANACTcnF8sqY3

            After being greeted, she ordered Brambleclaw to tell wounded cats who could walk, to come to her den.copyright protection34PENANAflK45VzllC

            He obeyed.copyright protection34PENANAUek4oZ84Lc

            She went to tend to the cats that couldn’t walk. When was done with them, she went to the Medicine den.copyright protection34PENANAin5uLLDebB

            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 protection34PENANAhqX2v3X4oi

            She turned to see Brambleclaw tell her, “I’m sorry. Cinderpelt is with Starclan now.”copyright protection34PENANAHjw2oV1wZM

            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 protection34PENANAJhaOMVApaL

            Ferncloud spoke. “It’s my fault. I didn’t even try to protect her.”copyright protection34PENANA1rcZuI2rNr

            Dustpelt tried to soothe her.copyright protection34PENANAKuLgw9byFb

            “I promise you, Leafpool. She died of an honorable death,” Brambleclaw said soothingly. “I’ll tell Firestar.”copyright protection34PENANAlotvdfrNFB

            She heard his paw steps fade away, as he left the Medicine den.copyright protection34PENANAzH3MGxuJZh

            She silently spoke. “Cinderpelt, if you’re still with me, speak to me.” But all she felt was the strong smell of death.copyright protection34PENANAaJMVZi5bQK

            She left her den after she was done with the wounded.copyright protection34PENANAnc9QHm59aL

            She padded up to Firestar her father.copyright protection34PENANAKKsOw8m1Sl

            “Come to my den. I must see to your wounds.”copyright protection34PENANAj345Z4n4ge

            He obeyed and followed her there.copyright protection34PENANAODqXu8kAhu

            She had to stop thinking of him as her dad, she told herself.copyright protection34PENANAl2eNRLWdMO

            She soon found Brambleclaw. His left shoulder was wounded. When he refused, she narrowed her eyes at him.copyright protection34PENANAy5RDbQHzUY

            “What help will you be if that bite gets infected?”copyright protection34PENANANJCeG6n1GF

            At that, he followed her to her den to be fixed with herbs.copyright protection34PENANAv1HKPzvLMi

            After she was done with the warrior he went to put the Elder’s den together.copyright protection34PENANAAlnrYyiG7d

            Just then, the warrior spotted a few friends. He bounded over to them.copyright protection34PENANAEVWgaDmxE3

            “Brooke, Stormfur, what are you doing here?”copyright protection34PENANAda4VVUuqFg

            “We’re visiting here to help Thunderclan. Then we’re staying in Riverclan,” Stormfur told the warrior.copyright protection34PENANAIfC6HAF0hN

            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 protection34PENANAdVIacTNzrs

            The warrior spoke.copyright protection34PENANACEDHzyB4Yh

            “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 protection34PENANAlHxXOeyueP

            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 protection34PENANAhsL0CYTqxl

            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 protection34PENANASaZvSz3tD2

            When night came, she settled down in her mentors’ moss nest. She slept, smelling Cinderpelt's scent.copyright protection34PENANAKZKhWzwu3L

            She dreamed she was in the forest looking for prey.copyright protection34PENANAkke6kQ4egC

            Suddenly, a cat came out. The cat spoke.copyright protection34PENANAz9MzFE8I8M

            “Don’t be afraid, Leafpool. I’m Silverstream. There’s someone who wants to speak to you.”copyright protection34PENANALTLwbI5Hc9

            A dark, black cat with a white stripe down its back came up to them and sat by Silverstream.copyright protection34PENANAtxtHDOxI3O

            Stormfur's mother spoke.copyright protection34PENANAkCY7bDMkmV

            “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 protection34PENANA68OSEZAKHN

            She bowed her head to Silverstream and then turned her attention to Darkstripe.copyright protection34PENANAUaknSYcqHf

            “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 protection34PENANAe2Rd93QWnc

            “I will,” she promised him, bowing her head.copyright protection34PENANASukGmZGWKo

            She watched, as the cats disappeared as they walked away.copyright protection34PENANAJEz42r3eRK

            She awoke at sunrise to search for Brambleclaw. He was sleeping in the warriors’ den.copyright protection34PENANAu6MmjWp9TN

            “Brambleclaw,” she whispered.copyright protection34PENANAmLhHsEG9Bq

            He woke up to see her.copyright protection34PENANAxl56p7xtmp

            She continued to speak in a whisper to him. “Follow me. I need to tell you something important. It involves your kin.”copyright protection34PENANAdQv0cOWCYQ

            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 protection34PENANApkBH14lIdW

            “What’s going on?” he asked her.copyright protection34PENANA9KheQHloaH

            “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 protection34PENANANoyioK7lm5

            “Warn us of what?”copyright protection34PENANAbMqNtsROa4

            “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 protection34PENANAKjO2yFJU4T

            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 protection34PENANACRhaaGUh1h

            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 protection34PENANAnc3O0wgRlr

            A few days later, Daisy’s kit, Berrykit, was missing from the camp.copyright protection34PENANAW5LL7jqRdu

            Sandstorm, Brambleclaw, and Dustpelt soon found him in a trap. That was meant for foxes, not cats. They soon got him out.copyright protection34PENANAKPm2ZxIUPJ

            After Leafpool fixed him up, Berry kit only had a stumpy tail.copyright protection34PENANAccWf1XMhO7

            At the Gathering, each leader told what was going on.copyright protection34PENANAIKdtwlNWc0

            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 protection34PENANArXQOZPlIKa

            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 protection34PENANAsWnpcomZGa

            “Never!” hissed One-star.copyright protection34PENANA6oVjSrFGoR

            Just then, war broke out.copyright protection34PENANAGQOwEOm0w7

            Brambleclaw tried to rescue Dustpelt from a Shadowclan warrior.copyright protection34PENANAaZ3xogWKfC

            When the cats heard their leader’s yowls to stop, they stopped.copyright protection34PENANAVm1RGUjlAH

            Firestar said that the meeting was over.copyright protection34PENANAchy1NdQadn

            Before Leafpool went to join her clan, she overheard Mothwing and Hawkfrost.copyright protection34PENANAhomlWKCSuR

            “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 protection34PENANAuqewhUqAf0

            “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 protection34PENANAisiRu54kgh

            “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 protection34PENANAIyG4UCOwuj

            Then he left with his Clan.copyright protection34PENANAoZJCv1xWCM

            “I’m sorry you had to hear that,” Mothwing told her.copyright protection34PENANAXVffMKlQ5C

            “It’s okay. I never have trusted him, and now I know I was right not to,” Leafpool said.copyright protection34PENANA8NaOR4rGAW

            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 protection34PENANAZZWJBsL8on

            “Is Heavy step okay?” asked Leafpool. He was an elder who had Green cough.copyright protection34PENANAVlibB4VWV1

            “No. He needs cat mint, but I can’t find any.”copyright protection34PENANAy4OJSFNkmo

            “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 protection34PENANAgloc5ZEQ83

            “Tell him thanks.”copyright protection34PENANAe4pxg0BcXx

            That night, that picture of Hawkfrost had haunted her dreams.copyright protection34PENANAdwB1fuH3O3

            She dreamt that she saw Hawkfrost in a forest turning into the evil Tigerstar. Then he went after her.copyright protection34PENANAs5pQhuQWlZ

            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 protection34PENANAZA4o7koJwm

            Brambleclaw woke to Fern cloud's yowl. He was told that Daisy and her kits were gone.copyright protection34PENANAgKSRL8msca

            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 protection34PENANAwEfVvxqltM

            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 protection34PENANAlsmpRuJfdg

            The next day at sun high, they came back to the forest to live forever.copyright protection34PENANACu0ulLCIeO

            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 protection34PENANASLt8GYF7k9

            The young tabby tom warrior thought there wasn’t any trouble. He saw and smelled plenty of prey.copyright protection34PENANATFCg4tKOJY

            Just then, he saw the two Riverclan cats. The two were Stormfur and Brook Where Small Fish Swim; also known as Brook.copyright protection34PENANA4ls5QORsw5

            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 protection34PENANAhpRLxxKdE4

            Without any cat knowing, he followed them.copyright protection34PENANAnyKZPPtADc

            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 protection34PENANAyIy1NoPERm

            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 protection34PENANAK8MBUj9ExO

            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 protection34PENANAJVntUcinMW

            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 protection34PENANAAlE8mswc7n

            Just then, Sandstorm came in and sat by the leader.copyright protection34PENANAySwkurED5c

            “It’s time for you to leave,” she said softly. He then left.copyright protection34PENANAsO7Qi22AqP

            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 protection34PENANAw0ab8xDFJL

            “Wait here,” she told him.copyright protection34PENANA3iDAD71iL6

            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 protection34PENANAueVC4dE7O5

            After Leafpool watched Stormfur and her dad talk, she saw her dad climb onto the Rock Ledge for a Clan meeting.copyright protection34PENANAWl57weEaUn

            Approval rose through the clan when he said he had appointed a new deputy.copyright protection34PENANAVXGzxjGyBs

            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 protection34PENANAF6GAJKOoRC

            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 protection34PENANAtOXyVuNAEH

            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 protection34PENANAYAFE9cYPLz

            “Before there is peacecopyright protection34PENANAirGY2pJQOB

            Blood will spill bloodcopyright protection34PENANAthprQlVEWz

            And the lake will run red.”copyright protection34PENANAlUa1yjew9Z

            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 protection34PENANA6rqNpsd9j1

            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 protection34PENANAKMj9d9v9Or

            As he stared into the distance, his leader spoke.copyright protection34PENANAJalTbUdprm

            “Brambleclaw, you did well. I’m proud of you.”copyright protection34PENANApyOPmeiznC

            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 protection34PENANAB7oUhC4NLS
