How long had it been that Asterpaw had been cooped up within the medicine cat den? The sickness of the rat disease had spread quickly throughout ShadowClan, and the one who had been designated to heal them ended up getting infected. How ironic. But it dawned on him, then-- He needed to become a true medicine cat. And he needed somebody who could help him balance the weight of ShadowClan's sick on his shoulders.
Late that night, he had made the trek to the Moonstone. As the moonlight touched the inside of the cavern, he nestled himself against the crystal, and it was only a matter of time before StarClan was there to answer his call. He asked for advice. He asked what to do currently, what to do in the future, how to make ShadowClan better. This was his home now.
And now, Asterpaw walked in that morning, the birds only beginning to chirp. Nervousness coiled within his stomach, but he leaped on to the meeting place, staring down at the growing crowd of cats. "Sh-Sh...adowClan, if I could h-have your... attention please!" He called as loud as he could, then paused as he watched groggy members gather beneath him.
"L-Last night, I spo...ke with StarClan. From this point on.... I will be k-nown as Asterstem. I have e-earned my full me...dicine cat name." He paused again to let that information sink in, before clearing his throat. He then leaped down the rock, darting into the medicine cat's den quickly before coming back with an array of herbs in his jaws. He settled at the base of the rock and dropped them on the ground.
"Furth-ermore, I have.... been told to seek an app-rentice. So... If a-anybody interested could g-gather here I'll be h-hosting tryouts. Th-Those simply intereste...d in learning more can gather, too."
I will be looking for these things from a potential medicine cat apprentice:
- Participation in this thread. This will be where I and Aster can learn what your character already knows. Your character doesn't have to and probably shouldn't know a ton of herbs already, as there's no point in getting an apprentice if they already know what's going on!
- General activity. This is mainly so that when I'm gone, as I get busy often, ShadowClan still has an active and engaging member to rely on.
- Just have your character be interesting and three dimensional! They don't have to be super soft and sweet to be a medicine cat apprentice. They should have both positive traits and negative traits. Maybe your character doesn't even want to be a medicine cat apprentice, but was chosen by StarClan!
Please state interest in your OOC, or else it will be assumed your character is just here to learn more.
