//thats an oof lmao !! i just started a third character over in bloodclan and im scared i won't be able to keep up :pensive: i've been struggling with burnout just with the two i do have, though i suppose that's been mainly just me having an awful week. i get the discord though! i always wait to join discords until i'm sure i'm going to continue with a character to save from the social anxiety of saying 'haha actually' ; i don't think asking in clan cat threads would be an awful idea! or you can post a plotting thing in each individual clan ooc board if that would be more comfortable?? i get the anxiety of posting in chatting threads that aren't for your clan tho oof ; i've been focusing tawny due to her being a high position, but i make sure to at least check on my other active character. it's been working so far!!
He liked her name. Huh. She had always thought her name was pretty plain. Tawnypaw didn't dislike her name per se, but compared to her siblings and even her parents, 'Tawnypaw' felt pretty bland. She couldn't help from feeling her face flush a little warm. She really hadn't been complimented on anything that wasn't her loyalty before, and even that could be argued as 'not a compliment'. It jsut felt weird is all.
She didn't mention anything regarding names, personally not feeling comfortable continuing their chain of compliments. If it had a been a clanmate? Maybe. But not this stranger from the Tribe. Instead, she focused on his question. Shaking her head, the girl mewed, "I'm not supposed to, but I trained for a warrior for the past four moons, so I can and will defend myself if needed." Though phrased that a threat, her proud posture made it seem more like a brag. Either way, she wanted to enforce the idea that she was far from defenseless. "Medicine cats are taught basic fighting and hunting moves, though. It's just not encouraged that they engage in combat or regular warrior duties." She let out a snort. "I find that to be frustrating, but I would never go against StarClan's rules." Too often, anyway. Whose to say she wouldn't join a hunting patrol here or a border patrol there? She had the skills; why not use them?
She listened quietly as he talked regarding the Telling. Ah, so he had some baggage--'issues' as he put it. She flicked her tail. "Well, I can't stop you from talking about your 'issues'." She lifted her chin, exhaling harshly. "Just don't be surprised if I use it against you or the Tribe. We are still rival groups, after all." Though it might be viewed as her trying to lighten the mood a little, but there was a hint of undisguised seriousness in her tone. ShadowClan always came first.
Moving on, her tone lightened up a little. "Yes, we all get together to share news about what's happening in the clans and the territories." She flicked her tail, letting out a soft purr. "My favorite part is hearing about new kits." Tawnypaw clearly had a soft spot for the youth of the clans, ShadowClan or not. Spending time with them was one of her favorite pastimes, though her new duties often kept her away from doing so.
The feather tradition piqued her interest just a little. Interesting. She tilted her head, her golden eyes shining with subdued interest. "Where do you keep the feathers. Like, just in your nest?" It felt like a dumb question, but what if a cat gathered a lot of feathers? Where would they keep them all? "How do you tell whose is whose?" And about the prey. "Share? Do you have to share smaller prey, like mice? They're barely a meal for a grown cat."
