An old fanfic from another forum that I decided to post and continue here. I'll post the first chapter right now.
(I HIGHLY reccomend reading the books before reading ANY Warriors fanfic. Anyway Prolouge.)
The leaves crunched beneath Crookedwind's feet. The trees, covered in snow, stared at him menacingly, and the ground was slippery and freezing with water. It was leafbare.
Just the concept of leafbare had scared him. No food, no shelter besides the camp, and clans stealing what little food they had from one another.
"Riverclan has easy..." He grumbled to himself. "They have fish to fill them, while all the rabbits here have gone." He was of course riffering to Windclan territory. But this wasn't the biggest of his problems. His mate, Foxsoul, was having kits. But he was out on Warrior patrol.
"Foxsoul... I'll be there," He whispered to himself. "I promise."
But he didn't know how wrong he was.
"Lostpath!" A silver coated cat yelped. "Get Hazelstone!" Hazelstone was the medicine cat of Windclan.
"Right away!" I red coated cat said to his leader, Redstar. Almost instantly after this, he bolted towards Hazelstone's den.
"Hazelstone!" He said running through the den opening. He found Hazelstone mixing, what smelled like, some very bitter herbs.
"What is it this time Lostpath?" Hazelstone asked sarcastically. "Did the badgers attack again?" She laughed.
"I'm afraid not. Foxsoul is kitting!" He yelped with panic in his voice.
"How is she doing?" Hazelstone asked rushing to pick up poppy seeds.
"Not well... three kits have already died. There's only one left..." Lostpath said with a pang of sadness in his voice.
Immediatly after hearing this Hazelstone heard Foxsoul's crys. She bolted out of the den and ran to Foxsoul's side.
"Foxsoul! Foxsoul speak to me!" She said shaking the cat. But it was to no avail.
"She's with Starclan now." Redstar said sadly. "But she has one survivng kit... what shall be it's name?"
"It's a female..."Hazelstone said. "And it's brown, white, and black..." Hazelstone said to Redstar. "Fawnkit." She said when the idea popped into her head. "Her name shall be Fawnkit." She said picking her up by the scruff of her neck. "And I shall care for her."
