Me debating if I should enter this contest 😛😛 I’ll see if I have time, maybe I’ll do both writing and art 😂 I need to start writing again anyway – I’ve missed it 😔

Question though: So for the writing prompt, can we interpret “hunting” in any way we want? (like…it doesn’t have to be hunting for “food” specifically, ya know?) I might have an idea but it’s vague for the moment lol

Poetry:

Sneaking under leaves
Quieter than theives
Sight on the mouse
Falling into a drowse
Time slows with a leap
The mouse put to endless sleep
“Thank you StarClan, for this prey”
The hunter of the shadows prays


I am the storm after the calm

Okay. Here is my submission for the Poetry Contest:
Jingle Jingle
Jingle, jingle, goes the bell
As the black cat casts her spell
Looks in stores (to rocks they’ve been found)
Seeing what needs to be hunted for above ground
“A bit of comfrey,” she muttered, “some borage,”
As she added the ingredients to her porridge
“Poppy seeds, feverfew,” 
As the little tom-kit next cried mew
“A sprig of marigold,” she cried,
As her young pupil swelled with pride.
“Tansy, thyme, water mint too,”
As a she-cat came in who was a grey-blue
“Blackberry leaves, The Blazing Star,”
To a tom with stings and many scars
“Catmint, chervil, celandine,”
As pupil becomes teacher, Lilypaw becomes Lilystream
And finally, when the prospect’s black,
When black cat goes and won’t come back,
Jingle, jingle, goes the bell
As Scarletberry casts her last spell… 

I hope that this is a good entry.

Poetry;
Stalking amongst the leaves.
Falling from the trees.
I hunt for my clan
A bird, with a wide wingspan
Just a step closer
and then this hunt is over
Pow! Twoleg in the distance!
Like I needed its assistance!
Quickly, like a mouse
I hurry and scurry away from the twoleg house.
(I hope this was good 😛 )

My poem… this will probably be horrid, ripp. 😛
The moon slowly rises as a silver cat stalks a mouse.
“Hurry, hurry. You must feed your Clan. Make a stand, help them any way you can,” the voices in her ears whisper.
“I know I can, yes I can, I’ll make a stand, I’ll do it for my Clan. I’ve never been good at hunting, but I’ll do it for my Clan.” the silver cat whispers.

The cat glows, from her ears to her toes, as she catches the mouse.

But wait! Happiness and pride shall have to wait!
An enemy patrol. The silver cat shall have to make a stand, stand up strongly for her Clan.
“We need that mouse. Go home. You kitty pet. You’ll waste that prey, I bet!” a tabby snarls.
“StarClan, StarClan, help me out. I try to not, try to not shout, but I need your help without a doubt.” the silver cat murmurs.
The tabby says, “StarClan is silent. You’re on your own, you are alone, silver cat, you are worthless like a rat, you won’t feed your Clan, you’ll never make a stand, you won’t rise, so stop with all the tries.”
“I’ll do this, I’ll stand up strongly for my Clan. They need this food, so do I. I won’t let these mean cats see me cry.” The silver cat things.
“StarClan is silent, they won’t let you win. We will beat you, defeat you, murder your kin.” The tabby snarls.

“There’s no way. I’ll live another day, I know it. Ok?” the she-cat says.

“Your blood will spill as I reach in for the kill.” the tabby retorts.“I need that mouse as much as you do, and I’m willing to kill to get it, murdering your soul bit by bit,”
The she-cat doesn’t know what to say. Without this prey, can she survive another day?
Her heart says help these cats survive, but should she keep her Clan alive?

“You show no mercy. You don’t care. You stare, and I know you don’t want us to thrive, don’t want us to survive.” the tabby meows.
He knocks the she-cat over.
“No! I need that prey! My Clan MUST survive another day!” The she-cat gasps as her blood spills.
“Tabby, tabby, you poor cat. I hate to end things like that, but that’s that, you rat.” the silver she-cat yowls as she attacks the tabby.
One dead body. One bloody silver cat. One hunt completed.
That’s that!

THE END
Oh my god that was horrible XD

I think I’ll probably enter both here is a poetry:

Tiny little mouse goes squeak, as an eagle uses her beak
Talons sink and talons drive, now my prey is no longer alive.
I want to yelp, my prey is gone! But Starclan this day brings prey along.
I see a crow lay on the ground, I pounce but eww! This is carrion food!
I spit out feather, so much is in the way! Why can’t a decent hunt come today!
I hear a rustle in a bush, I leap, I pounce, I feel some fur, yes a catch for my clan! Something big, some great big meat! I scratch, I bite, I chew, I fight.
Hey you Mousebrain! It is me, not some prey you’ve come to see!

That wasn’t very good lol


Super happy apprentice!

Sure!(At first I thought you wanted me to draw her as a human and I was like… “That’s a bad idea” but I can totally do a cat 😛 ) Any particular background you’d like? And do you want her name on it? If so, what color? Print or “fancy”? What pose/expression(although expressions I’m still working on rip…)

Uhhh free reign on background and pose, maybe a sort of annoyed expression if it’s not too tricky, and it would be cool to have her name on it but I don’t have a particular preference on text 🙂 thanks!

Hi Flamecloud, you might not see this so I’ll repost it on the most recent page.

Could I have drawing of one of my OCs? She’s a white she-cat with black splotches and navy blue eyes, a scar on her left ear and a pink nose. It would me nice to have her looking into the moonpool. Is that too much? Feel free to tell me if it is.

Thanks!

For the poetry contest!

Footsteps in the woods
Branches creak
Out on a hunt
Claws unsheathed 

Nervous whispers hiss
Shadows call
Out in the night
They all will fall

Scent in the air
Quarry’s close
This one tougher
To catch than most

Do you hear them coming?
Over the rocks
Blood is running
In rusty socks 

Do you hear them coming? 
Growing nearer
They looks so frightening
But are not feared 

Blood to spill
To pay a debt
For the lives
That have been spent 

Sweet dreams shattered
Scarlette smocks
Those are a statement
That can’t be mocked 

Screaming in the woods
Shattering cries
They can see his victims
Drowning in flies 

Do you hear them coming?
Dig a grave
Because this old monster
Won’t die today 

Do you hear them coming?
Out for revenge 
But it’s their lives
That will end. 

The monster hears
Smiling with glee
Because some cats
Don’t know when to flee

Eyes shining in the shadows
Up in a tree
That’s the last thing
The apprentice sees

Quiet as a mouse
He finds his mark
Hunters are the hunted
Don’t go out after dark

Do you hear them coming? 
Morning shines
There are empty nests
And the monster dines

Do you hear them coming?
Don’t wait up
They’re not coming back
Those cats you loved
