Lavenderstar had kept quiet as she led her clan back to SkyClan's territory, she made sure to steer well away from the area of their old camp in which twolegs were still building and making a mess of things... but luckily for SkyClan a camp had been found and they could now return home. It was a bit away from their old camp, and SkyClan had to slightly expand their territory to receive access to it but not by much, all in the end is this would mean border patrols would get a little bit more exercise... and could any of the other clans even complain? Expanding their territory and claiming the territory was the only thing they could do, unless they were going to leave the whole entire area which meant they would no longer be apart of the clans anymore. Did they want that? She wasn't sure if she would be shocked or not if some would- or even if some didn't really care at the end of the day.
No matter that, she was just... glad SkyClan was doing okay. They still hadn't found Breezepaw or Finchpaw but once they were settled in Lav would be sure to heavily search for the girls again, she hadn't given up on them.
Eventually they would finally approach the clearing and a big smile grew on Lavenderstar's face, "Prepare to be amazed! I think its actually really nice!" She purrs, she just hoped the others thought the same. If they didn't, she didn't know what to tell them. Really as of now this was their only option and she had looked over the place thoroughly, it would make for a good camp.
With that she slips through the camps entrance, before padding off to the side to give room for everyone else to walk in. "We're home."
// c: quoted myself in case anyone hasn't seen or needs a refresher on what the new camp looks like! I'll have lav show em around in the next post.
Okay so the camp is in a decently large clearing. The most noticeable thing that makes it pop out is the two fairly large trees in the center of camp that stand only a few feet or so away from each other.
The Warriors den is a tree house that is held by the tree to the left upon entering camp, this tree is slightly larger then the one to its right. The tree house it a bit run down due to not being taken care of by twolegs for years and has been completely abandoned, but its still habitable for the cats. A small balcony squares out around the house, so if cats wished to they could lay about there though they would not be protected by the man made walls of the den.
This den also has a small up stairs section that is the leaders den. Unfortunately its a little high to jump into even for cats standards, but luckily a small hole within the roof (which can be accessed by climbing up a branch.) of the place was discovered. Its big enough for cats to jump in and out of though.
The apprentice den is within to the tree next to the warriors den, and it too is a tree house. There is a bridge that connects from one den to the other making it extremely easy to travel to or from another den (The bridge will also be the new meeting place). This tree house is also a bit worn down, but once again its still habitable for them. The only thing different to this tree house is that unlike the warriors den it doesn't have an upstairs / attic area.
The closest thing I could find IRL to these dens what this would look like is this, but its higher up and in a much bigger tree and worn down? + no swing lol. Also tree houses are both identical looking to each other so just try to imagine the same one on the other side.
The medicine cats den is a large hollow in the same tree that carries the warriors den. Its a bit smaller then the cottage, but it still provides plenty of room for injured and sick cats to be treated. Ivy that grows on the tree hangs down and covers the entrance of the hollow, hiding it from any potential predators that make their way into camp.
The elders den is a large hollowed out log that sits near the edge of camp. Like the medicine cats den though it wont be naturally created ivy will be placed over the entrances to hide it to any predators that enter camp. (At lest from sight for the time being lol). Heres kinda a ref on what I mean; click.
Because I was having a hard time explaining here is a quote from the wonderful Tallow about the Nursery. "The nursery is located in what was once a support structure for the treehouse. Now the support is only half the tree it was, and the top left has been ripped open and hollowed by years of weather and other animals. A majority of the top is flat , rings in wood showing its age, but the inside is near completely hollowed out. Inside is spacious enough for queens and kits, as well as offering a wall of protection that enemies would need to climb to enter. Because of this height kits often learn to climb before they’re even made apprentices "
It'll be kinda embarrassing if I forgot something but if anyone is confused or have any questions just ask!! I tried to explain the best I could :0.
