Feathersnow recaps the very first series of Warriors!

Hello! Feathersnow here.
Today, I’ll tell you the summary of the series ‘The Prophecies Begin’
Rusty the ginger kittypet wants to hunt in the wild. But Smudge, his friend and some wild cats forbade him to do so. Rusty encounters Graypaw, a wild cat who trains to be a ‘warrior’. Rusty also meets Bluestar and Lionheart who live with Graypaw and lots of other cats. Bluestar, the leader of these wild cats explains that there are Clans in the forest. ThunderClan, WindClan, RiverClan and ShadowClan. Rusty later accepts Bluestar’s offer to go to live in the wild. Rusty receives the name ‘Firepaw’ and gets taunted by Longtail because he was a kittypet. His denmates, Dustpaw and Sandpaw taunts him, too and Firepaw gets temporarily mentored by Tigerclaw, a senior warrior. Tigerclaw trains Ravenpaw, another apprentice and Firepaw hard and cruelly, especially Firepaw whom he calls a ‘disgusting kittypet’. Firepaw becomes friends with Ravenpaw and meets the ThunderClan medicine cat, Spottedleaf. Firepaw now has a strong bond with Spottedleaf although he knows that medicine cats cannot have mates. Firepaw brings back Yellowfang , a exiled ShadowClan medicine cat and asks her to be ThunderClan’s medicine cat, since Spottedleaf died, murdered by Clawface, a ShadowClan warrior. Firepaw despairs and trains even harder than before. Spottedleaf often appears in his dreams and he bonds closer with Sandpaw, making Dustpaw jealous. Firepaw gets in a dangerous relationship with Tigerclaw, making the senior warrior lash out in him in every way he could. Meanwhile, Redtail the deputy dies, Lionheart replacing him. Lionheart does a great job as deputy but Tigerclaw seems to be jealous of him. Firepaw notices this and soon enough, Lionheart dies too, making Tigerclaw deputy. Bluestar gets weaker, every day and Tigerclaw seemed to get stronger each passing moon. Tigerclaw makes Firepaw and Graypaw do every boring and dangerous apprentice task, trying to kill them. Tigerclaw fails, although he keeps trying. Firepaw and Graypaw, on the other hand, tries to avoid trouble even though they are the troublemakers for ThunderClan. Bluestar apprentices Firepaw after Lionheart dies and Firepaw learns the secret of skills and patience and lots of other qualities from her.
