    let me dream with the stars // skyclan


    Whitepaw just stared at his brother for a few moments, silent as his mind tried to process and catch up with Poppypaw's logic. Eventually he just kind of shook his head a little - truly mystified. "So...so your plan is to throw leaves at mom and hope that gets a giggle out of her?" Whitepaw normally would just ignore things like this that came out of Poppypaw's mouth, but at this point, Whitepaw was desperate enough for some kind of reaction from their mother that he was actually entertaining this idea. He wasn't sure why entirely, but he was currently blaming it on desperation.

    //YOU'RE BACK I MISSED YOU!!! <3

    Whitepaw looked from his brother, down to the leaf - it was extremely red - and then back up at Poppypaw. His pale gaze was unimpressed. "Wow, how come we didn't think of this sooner?" Whitepaw stated in monotone, before he heaved a sigh and glanced down at the leaf again. Humoring his brother's odd train of thought, Whitepaw gave in. "What exactly is it that we're supposed to be pondering, Poppypaw? What's your idea here?" Whitepaw knew his siblings all thought in different, unique ways, so he was willing to hear them out. But this was definitely something he wasn't sure he would understand. Regardless, he was curious.

    Whitepaw tread quietly over to his sister and Lavenderskies, two mice dangling by their tails in his jaws. Sitting down beside Lavenderskies, he placed the mice on the ground and flicked his ears, watching his sister. She seemed especially eager to hunt today, and it was admittedly amusing for Whitepaw. He wasn't anything like Wolfpaw, but he loved watching her enthusiasm for life and training. "Stay focused, Wolfpaw," he reminded her gently.

    Bristling a little at Wolfpaw's volume concerning the sensitive topic, Whitepaw launched to his paws and shushed his sister quickly. "Wolfpaw! Don't shout about it!" Whitepaw hissed under his breath, gaze darting around the camp to find it thankfully mostly empty. Turning back to his sister, he continued to try and figure things out. "I don't know what to do because I don't know exactly what it is that mom's so hung up on that things have gotten this bad. Why don't we go talk to her, yeah?"

    Whitepaw nodded quietly, looking down at his paws and sighing quietly. If even Wolfpaw was noticing the changes in their mother, than that meant others in the Clan must be starting to notice as well. Which was a dangerous thing. If they began to think that Minnowstar was unfit for leadership, things would get even messier in the Clan, especially with the lack of a deputy to step up and take over. "It's not just you noticing, Wolfpaw. Mom's...spiraling, honestly. I think the stress and grief are getting to her in a way she hasn't ever experienced. She doesn't know how to handle it all at once and she's breaking." Pausing, Whitepaw looked over at his sister with honest eyes. "I'm scared for her. I don't know what to do."

    Whitepaw looked up at Wolfpaw from where he was tucked into a mouse, ears flicking curiously at her. "You say that like you aren't sure if you actually want to talk about it," Whitepaw pointed out, nudging his mouse to the side with a sigh. "But I agree. We should talk about her." Maybe Whitepaw was able to see it much more clearly than the other cats because he had been absent for so long. But Minnowstar was different. He had watched the progression of it from afar, but he knew more than he was letting on. Wolfpaw seemed concerned, but also unwilling to believe that things were spiraling out of control. Why she had come to him, he didn't really know, but he wasn't going to turn his own sister away.

    Shifting in his seat, Whitekit moved a little closer to his mother and nodded quietly, looking down at the dirt in front of them. "It took a while, but I did. I ran into a loner at first, and she was really nice. But I didn't spend much time with her. Then you know I went to the Tribe for a while. Sky offered to take me in as a To Be if I stayed long enough. But I spoke with one of their cave guards and eventually realized that I needed to find my place outside of structures like the Clan or the Tribe." This was where Whitekit became apprehensive, just because he didn't want to upset his mother with the knowledge that he was on his own and in danger for a while. Even though she already knew. "I left the Tribe and was on my own for about a moon. I ran into some cats who weren't exactly the nicest of sorts...but they taught me how to survive and left a few physical scars because of it. I don't regret it, though. It wasn't exactly out of malice, just a tough way of learning."

    //aaahh I almost forgot to post as Whitekit instead of Whitepaw

    Whitekit - or Whitepaw now - was practically vibrating with excited energy, but he kept it subtle. He had been looking forward to this since his return to SkyClan. He had been forced to hone his hunting and fighting skills during his time away from the Clan, and he was eager to polish and advance them through proper training as he grew. His mother's eyes were shining as she gave him and his siblings their apprentice names. Whitepaw was beyond excited for the future, and he allowed his tail to shiver with anticipation.

    Whitekit had been lounging around in the shade with Wolfkit, surprisingly having convinced her earlier to actually sit still and not cause trouble for a little while. He thinks the comment about having missed her while he was gone really did the trick in settling her down. Glancing up at his mother's call for a meeting, Whitekit pushed to his paws and stretched before padding closer to where they usually gathered for meetings in camp. He wasn't entirely sure what this meeting was about, but thought absently that maybe Minnowstar was already about to appoint a new deputy.

    Whitekit nods, countenance calm as he shifts into a slightly more comfortable position against Minnowstar's side. He heaves a quiet sigh and can't help but think about how he had taken advantage of Glacewing's debilitated state to escape camp, and now she was gone and he could never get the chance to apologize for that. Wincing slightly at the thought, Whitekit forged on and started to recount everything he could.

    "We spoke a little bit about it before I left, but I was just feeling overwhelmed, pressured by the expectation to be something I wasn't - something I won't ever be. I'm not energetic or kit-like. I felt like it was something others thought I would grow out of, but I think this is just who I'm going to be for a good part of my life. I don't know why it was so hard to accept that and not feel like I was letting everyone down before I left, but it just was." Turning to look up at his mother, Whitekit's hazel eyes were full of regret and apology. "I'm sorry that I ran away, mom. I didn't want to make you upset by doing so, but I was just so desperate to find somewhere or something that didn't make me feel like I was going to break under the pressure. And I knew I couldn't find it here at the time."
