Rowanwhisker nodded to Clovershade and replied, "I do too." Being a mentor would be such a great experience and he hoped that he actually had things that he could pass onto them. He purred at her next comment and said, "It really is nice finding the place you want to be in for the rest of your life." He just wished that the clans helped out the loners and rogues a little more. After being one of them and among them, he understood how they felt and lived. He also understood why the clans didn't want to help, because they might not have enough for themselves. But there had been so many cats struggling to live out there and he'd been more than happy to help them. If the clans could figure out some way to help them that would be mutually beneficial then it'd be better for everyone. He sighed at her response to the news that Duckpaw was taken and decided to voice his previous thoughts, saying, "To be honest, I'm not sure why the clans put up with them. They seem to be nothing but trouble and if you all worked together you could easily drive them out. But the clans haven't done anything yet. Do you think you could help me understand why?" He was genuinely curious. There had to be some reason they hadn't been taken down yet, he just couldn't think of what they reasoning could be. At her offer of help if Duckpaw appeared there he smiled at her and said, "Thank you. Your offer is appreciated." Things like this warmed him. While most of the time the clans would fight and bicker, they still really did care about each other. It was nice to see. When she changed the subject, he was a little grateful. While it was important to talk about those kinda of things, he hated how it made the mood drop. He was always one that had liked the lighter, happier moments, so he tried to bring that to others. Turning his thoughts inward for a second to assess how he felt about the clans, he then turned to her and answered, "I like them. All the rules in the Warrior Code make sense and help you guys, while all your clans have different talents and cats, but you're all still so much alike. It's kind of funny how defensive you guys get around each other when you all have the same values. I suppose that's the one thing that I wish was different. Out of the clans there are many bad cats, but there were many good cats too. And no matter how different we were, we banded together to make life better for other cats. I loved going around and helping cats in need with my friends. But here, in the clans, you defend your borders without a though of how the other cats might not really be a threat or how they might actually need help. And outside of Gatherings your very hostile with one another. I just wish that all the clans would be a bit more friendly with each other even if they won't be more friendly with cats outside of the clans."
ooc good thing, because here comes another one. XD
