Heronkit is born in RiverClan as the youngest in Ryecatcher and Kestrelsong's litter. Her littermates were Wavekit, Sedgekit, Ripplekit, Parrotkit, Honeykit, and one unnamed sibling. Other than her parents deciding to remain as friends, she had a fairly uneventful kithood for the first moons of her life. She spent most of her time exploring the camp, learning the basics of swimming, and playing harmless games with her littermates and the other kits in the nursery. Things took a dark turn when she was five moons old. A sickness had been working it's way around RiverClan, infecting many, and killing several of her clanmates. One of which was Frostbloom, the mother to some of her closest friends. One night, Heronkit awoke to find her brothers, Sedgekit and Ripplekit, had both succumbed to the sickness and died. The loss of her littermates at such a young age was devastating for her, and they wound up as the first of many deaths she carried with her. After a brief quarantine, she would go on to have her apprentice ceremony.
7 - 11 moons:
Following her apprentice ceremony, Heronkit was now known as Heronpaw, as was at first mentored by Ashfolly. Heronpaw was eager to learn and quick to assimilate herself into clan and her duties. Early in her apprenticeship, Heronpaw was involved in an accident at the river, resulting in her almost drowning. Although the event shook her up greatly, she never lost her love for the water. Not long after she met her future mate for the first time. At the time Berylpaw was living in SkyClan, and their relationship started as a tentative friendship. Although a bit brash, she warmed to the young tom quickly, and came to value the friendship, especially after her former nursery friends all vanished or died. They would meet several times secretly along the border.
Heronpaw's apprenticeship proved to be a very tumultuous time for her. When she was around 8-9 moons old, Heronpaw received her first serious injury. She was accompanying her close friend - and eventual step-father Rootlegs - to the WindClan border along with other members of RiverClan when they were attacked by a dog. Heronpaw, wanting to protect Rootlegs, stepped in front of the dog at one point, resulting in her receiving a nasty bite wound to the leg. The injury would set her back in training for a few weeks, as well as leaving her with an awkward limp for some time later. As she recovered in the medicine den, a guilty Rootlegs admitted his real reasons for the WindClan patrol, revealing he had misinterpreted a vision of what he believed to be one of his kits, when in fact it was Heronpaw. A short while after her injury, her mother, Kestrelsong, would fake her death. She never told her children, so at the time they believed it to be true. Heronpaw spiraled into grief, and her usually happy and warm personality, was replaced by someone frustrated and sad. She would unfairly take her frustrations out on her clanmates and the camp. It took some time, but with the support of her sisters, and her new mentor Jackalfrost, she began to heal. In the days after her apologies, she decided there was something else she needed to do.
Following her mother's 'first' death, she was inspired to come clean to Berylpaw about her growing feelings for him. To her relief he reciprocated those feelings. The only complicated part of their lovestory was that they were in different clans. Heronpaw considered herself deeply loyal to RiverClan, and the warrior code, and knew that entering a relationship would be like going against everything she stood for. And then Berylpaw came up with a solution - he would join RiverClan. He would eventually join RiverClan some days later, after saying goodbye to his former clanmates. He was met with suspicion at first, but his willingness to prove himself and train, meant he was eventually accepted into their ranks. Heronpaw's happiness would continue to grow when her mother made a return from the dead not long after. For a few weeks, Heronpaw felt truly happy again.
But it was not to last. Just weeks after her return, Kestrelsong was brutally murdered, and Heronpaw fell into a state of deep grief again.
sorry to anyone I might've forgotten or who's design I botched aaahh
Hope you guys like <33

This is a litter born of love, simple as that. Berylbreeze and Heronswoop first met as apprentices, when Beryl was still an apprentice of SkyClan. At the time of their first meeting Heron was dealing with the aftermath of an accident in the lake, whereas Beryl found himself oddly drawn to the territory. Although initially wary of one another, the two became fast friends, and that friendship soon blossomed into romance. Although both cared for each other, Heron wasn't sure if she could continue to pursue the relationship, as it conflicted with her loyalty towards RiverClan. When she met to confess her feelings, she also admitted that she could not pursue it any further due to her loyalties, but to her surprise, Beryl offered to join her in RiverClan. And so he did, and he was accepted into the clan shortly after. The two entered into an official relationship soon after, and things have gone smoothly since then, with both becoming warriors at the same time.
The past few weeks have been hard for the two; Heron recently lost her mother, and on a visit home Beryl learnt of the death of his adoptive brother. So whilst this litter will be a bit of a surprise for them, it will give them some much needed happiness in their lives again.
