  • The dark figure had made it deeper into DarkClan territory this time, unaware of the distance he had covered. The hills of the Tribe had blended so well with the forest of DarkClan that he had completely crossed the border. He wasn’t set on hunting though, he had only decided to go on a litttle adventure that went a little too far. He stood awe-struck in the forest, his amber eyes scanning the amount of plant life in his surroundings. He knew he wasn’t in Tribe territory, but he wasn’t aware that the place belonged to DarkClan. He simply thought that he had gone far enough to land that wasn’t claimed.

    Driftingpaw was as loyal to DarkClan as any member could be, but he had found it a bit difficult to be around camp lately. His mentor had ignored him for practically his entire apprenticeship, the camp was full of kits and cats he didn't know, his friends seemed to have gone MIA, and he was old enough to be a warrior... but wasn't yet. It was all very draining on the tabby. Driftingpaw had always loved exploring and going out on his own, but now it was almost becoming an escape to him. The forest was full of beauty and distractions. Something to do that was productive and got him out of camp. Today was one of those days, and the blue tabby was out and about under the trees, stalking an unfamiliar scent. Well, actually, it was a little familiar, but definitely not a scent that should have been there. He was determined to find the source.


    Driftingpaw stepped onwards, finally reaching a small break in the underbrush. The scent was strong here. He pushed through and found a dark figure standing there, looking around calmly. Did this guy not know this was Clan territory? Driftingpaw sighed and marched over, blue eyes tired, but curious too. He would just politely tell the cat this was not a good place to be.


    "Hey, can I help you? This is DarkClan territory, by the way."

  • Veil’s attention was diverted from the foliage, amber eyes widening as he spotted the blue cat. A DarkClanner! He should’ve paid more attention. He cursed himself for being so distracted. “Oh, shoot, I didn’t mean to-“ He stammered, “I didn’t realize this place belonged to DarkClan.” It really was the truth. Surely the Clan cat wouldn’t attack him? The tribe was on a good note with DarkClan after all. “I swear I haven’t hunted here or anything, I was just exploring and I went too far...” He lowered his eyes. Veil had never really talked to a DarkClanner. It was just his mother doing all the talking on patrols. He hated for his first direct interaction with one of them to be as a trespasser.

           The cat seemed very apologetic, stammering out his words and lowering his head as if he expected Driftingpaw to attack him. Driftingpaw had no such intention, and was a little taken aback at how sorry the stranger seemed. By his scent, the DarkClan apprentice could tell he hadn't been hunting, and their borders would be easy to cross if you weren't paying attention. Plus, the two groups were on good terms. Driftingpaw was actually a little curious, since he'd never formally met a Tribe member. Did they have forests? Was that why this tom was so wonderstruck by DarkClan territory? The questions swirled in his head, but Driftingpaw reigned them in in order to respond.


    "Hey, it's no problem. Well, I guess it is, but it's not a huge problem. Understandable, at least," Driftingpaw told him, shrugging his shoulders, "It's nice to know our territory is interesting, I guess. Must have been, for you to come this far in. What's your name? You're from the Tribe, right?" If the Tribe was going to cause any trouble, even though the apprentice highly doubted they were, he might as well get to know this stranger's name so he knew where the trouble had come from.

  • To his surprise, the blue tom acted casual about it. Veil brought his eyes back up to look at him, opening his mouth to reply, “It really is.” Time for introductions. The to-be figured that the tom probably wanted to know him just in case. “I’m from the Tribe. Name is Veil Over Silent Twilight, but just Veil for short.” Were Clan names also a mouthful to speak? He was curious. A name such as Lilystar didn’t seem like a mouthful. He wondered if all Clan cats followed that two-word pattern. “What’s your’s?” He asked. He didn’t like the thought of someone knowing his name without him knowing their’s.

           //Again, really sorry for disappearing :/ Work's been crazy


    The blue tabby's ears perked at the confirmation that this tom was from the Tribe. He'd come a ways. Some Tribe cats had visited before and even hung around, but never wandered here accidentally. It was an understatement to say Driftingpaw was curious. What was it like to live in a Tribe? For the first few months of his life, Driftingpaw had been a loner with his dad before the tom brought him here. He'd lived a loner and a Clan life. Adding Tribe to that list might be kind of cool.


    But he was getting ahead of himself. The stranger introduced himself as Veil Over Silent Twilight, which was a very... regal-sounding name. Definitely more majestic than his own. Although Driftingpaw couldn't read Veil's mind, he was correct in assuming all Clan cats had the two-word names, just as the Tribe cats almost had a mini-sentence for their own. "Nice to meet you, Veil. I'm Driftingpaw, although that should be changing soon after my trials," The apprentice explained. He smiled as he spoke, finding this accidental encounter actually kind of fun. "Do you guys change your names once you become warriors, or... whatever it is you guys become after apprentices?"

  • Driftingpaw was certainly a different name from what Veil was used to. Due to being born in the Tribe and being a devoted to-be, he seldom learned about the Clans’ cultures, even looking down upon them at times. He knew nothing of their inner workings. Maybe this Driftingpaw could tell him a little more.


    “Us? Nope.” Veil shook his head in response to the DarkClanner’s question, “Our mothers just name us after whatever she sees first after we’re born. The only time someone’s name gets changed is when they become Stoneteller.”


    A word that Driftingpaw mentioned had perked his interest as well. “What are the trials?” He queried.


    //It’s fine! Life piles up a ton all the time, so I’m not surprised when people have to focus on it for a while.

           Like Veil Over Silent Twilight, Driftingpaw didn't know much about Tribe life. He'd seen some cats and heard about it, but he had no clue about what they did or their ways of life. Obvious, by the way he was questioning his newfound acquaintance. It was interesting to hear that they were named after the first things their mothers saw after they were born. What if it was something like... Rock that Sits on the Ground? Warrior that Sleeps in Front of Me? That would make for some pretty funny names. Fortunately Veil had gotten a pretty cool-sounding one.


    "Oh, the trials? They're, well, trials an apprentice has to pass before he or she can become a warrior. I think it's exclusive to DarkClan, but I'm not sure," Driftingpaw explained, "I'm Drifting'paw' for now, but if I pass all the trials I'll become Drifting'claw' or Drifting'storm' or something along those lines. We earn a new name. You Tribe cats don't have anything like that?"

  • The trials certainly sounded... interesting. "I-I guess the Tribe has something like the trials." The dark cat thought through his next words, "Personally, I'm training to be a prey-hunter, so the older prey-hunters and the stoneteller would just check out my abilities in everyday duties. If they think I'm ready, I'll get promoted." It was still awhile before he could take the leap, but he was already quite skilled.


    "If I could change my name... I don't think I would. I like what my mother gave me. If I wanted to change it though, she would certainly let me." Veil tried to not mention that his mother was also the Stoneteller because if Driftingpaw wanted to snitch... well, he'd be in a lot of trouble. He already stayed out after sunset on multiple occasions, and she would be even more pissed if she learned that he suddenly waltzed into DarkClan territory without knowing it. He'd be a lackwit, as she would say. "Do cats of different Clans ever end up with the same name?"
