This is a sad song about Grey x Silver.

🎶 Dear Silverstream,
You were like a sunny beam
Lighting up my life with your dreams
And fantasies
Now that you’re gone
I find it so hard to go on
I wish you were here with me
Oh, oh. I wish you were here with me.
I wish my heart would just let me be
But it’s beating hard
And I guard you in me
In my memories
I wish you were here with me.
-Greystripe
 🎶

Feather x Crow fanfiction 
Shooting Stars

“Can’t catch me!” Crowpaw called gleefully, dashing past Feathertail so their fur brushed.

“Hey! I might be a RiverClan cat but I still have some WindClan blood!” Feathertail bristled playfully, launching herself after the dark grey tom.

The two cats streaked multiple times around fourtrees, until Feathertail collapsed onto the earth, gasping, out of breath. Crowpaw sprinted over to her as fast as his legs could carry him, and bent over her, a worried expression written on his face.

“You…win…” Feathertail panted, amusement and mischief glinting in her liquid blue eyes.
Crowpaw let out a hearty purr.

“Next time we’re going to race in the river!” Feathertail added, getting to her paws. “But first…” Feathertail leapt at Crowpaw, who let out an indignant mew as Feathertail pinned him to the ground. Crowpaw laughed, and gently batted Feathertail’s cheek with sheathed paws. The two cats tustled on the earth, rolling around in the luss moon-bathed grass, Leaf-fall leaves crunching under their fur as they spinned around. They let go of each other at last, laughing as they caught their breath.

“I haven’t played like that since I was an apprentice!” Feathertail purred.

Crowpaw gazed into her gentle blue eyes. His dark navy ones seemed to burn into her heart and her soul and Feathertail broke off, feeling her pelt grow hot.

“I’m so glad you’ve been meeting me here for the past moons,” Crowpaw whispered. “You were right about what you said in the mountains. Things are changing, and the Clans might even have to leave the forest.” Crowpaw caught a bright red leaf in his claws and started to fidget with it nervously. “I don’t want to leave…and what would it mean for us?” Crowpaw turned back to her, alarmed when he saw sadness in her eyes. Crowpaw knew she was still grieving for her brother who had sacrificed himself to save Squirrelpaw from Sharptooth, with it saving the whole Tribe Of Rushing Water.

He felt guilty for mentioning the mountains when the wound of Stormfur’s death was still fresh and painful in Feathertail’s heart. He hated to admit it, but even he missed the old hedgehog.

“I’m sorry!” He mewed. “I didn’t mean to bring up Stormfur…”

Feathertail fluffed out her pelt. “Don’t worry, Crowpaw. I know you didn’t mean to.” Her gaze clouded, and Crowpaw leaned over to give her ear a comforting lick. Feathertail relaxed against his touch.

“Can I tell you something?” He breathed in her ear.

“Of course,”

“I love you.” Crowpaw turned away from Feathertail, and she could practically feel the heat of embarrassment radiating off his pelt. Feathertail touched one white paw to his shoulder.

“I love you too,” Feathertail purred. “I love you more than life itself.”

Crowpaw turned back to her. “Um…would..you..ugh…”

“Don’t beat around the bush! Spit it out!” Feathertail teased.

“Would you be my mate?”

Feathertail’s heart skipped a beat. “I…I’d love to, Crowpaw.”

Crowpaw smiled sheepishly, still surprised by the words that had tumbled out of his mouth. His embarrassed smile melted into a warm, confident one, love shining fiercely in his eyes, mirroring Feathertail’s own gaze. Crowpaw looked away slowly, to the stars above.

“Hey, look!” Crowpaw gasped. “Look at the sky!”

Feathertail gazed up to the night, and saw three silvery streaks painted across the air, like glowing trails of liquid moon. Shooting stars! She purred, cuddling up to Crowpaw. Crowpaw purred too, and Feathertail could feel the vibrations in his chest as he did so, throbbing and buzzing against her own floof. Crickets chirped around them and frogs croaked, the night was warm and pleasant and despite the looming danger of the destruction of the forest, Feathertail had never felt more content.

“We’re like the shooting stars, Crowpaw. Our love lights up the sky, burning brighter than ever before.”

To Moonspirit

“The moon soars high overhead;
In the river, the sunlight bled,
Til the flowers close their drooping eyes
And magic fills the purple skies.

The moon gazes down, down below
To people amazed by its glow —
Its smile, singing of happiness,
Of love, of hope, of tenderness.

The moon travels through the dark night
Filling the darkness with soft light;
Reminding us, wherever we are,
That we’re not alone, the world stretches far.

The moon gazes plaintively at the stormy sea,
At its reflection — flickering, dancing, free.
It longs to be down there, for joy, for motion!
A single teardrop falls into the ocean.

The sun waves its hand from the brightening sky;
The moon knows it has to say good-bye.
As a wave reaches up to touch the fading moon,
It replies, softly, I’ll be back soon.”


To Cloverkit/flame


To Starpaw/leap

I gaze up at the sky
Stars glitter overhead,
Oh how beautiful, how beautiful they are

Cold claws grip me
The night is nigh
I feel at peace

Ocean waves are lapping at my paws, whispering in my ears…

Starpaw takes a running leap –
Will she soar, or will she fall?
The shadows reach their fleshless hands out to her, calling.. ”Starpaw, Starpaw,”

She soars..
She is free!
Free as the wind,
Restless as the tide..

Some say they can hear her voice in their ears,
Others say they can see her in the sky, watching over them in the form of a glittering star..

”You made it Starpaw.. soar now and be free”

To Jaypaw

‘Jaypaw lay sprawled on the soft green grass feeling as if she didn’t have a care in the world but unfortunately she did. As the only apprentice in the clan it was her job to take care of all the elders. Except on one day of the year on the 25th day of the 12th moon that was called Christmas. The one day of the year when borders don’t matter, when cats from all 5 clans can go on each other’s territories and that one day was tomorrow. Jaypaw had know idea how Christmas worked except that it was created by the legendary Skyclan leader Larkstar. Jaypaw wished that all the clans could live in peace like they did on Christmas but that wasn’t possible. The day dragged on like usual and Jaypaw was fed up with all the elders’ complaints like usual. The next day Jaypaw set out at dawn getting a couple of travel herbs from the medicine den and onto riverclan territory before he was supposed to. Jaypaw trekked through windclan territory stopping once or twice when windclan warriors stopped him and soon he reached the other side of the grassy moors. She didn’t have to walk far when a voice stopped her, “Hello?”’

Moonblaze padded into the gift-giving clearing, pausing in wonder at the multitude of cats before her. It was a perfect winter day, with soft flakes of snow falling from the sky. The bright red Santa hat that she was wearing to match her red scarf rustled as she walked. She looked around for Foxi, for that was whom she was giving her gift to. The excited murmurs of cats receiving presents reached her ears, and she hoped that hers would be good enough. She spotted a small gray cat winding through the crowd and rushed over to her. She accidentally stumbled though, causing a spray of snow to fall on Foxi. The two cats looked at each other and purred. Moonblaze got up, shaking light flakes of snow off herself. “Sorry Foxi!” Moon purred, looking the smaller cat over. “Are you ok?” Foxi smiled and said, “No, you’re fine Moon! I’m looking for my buddy. Want to help?” Moon purred. “Actually, you’ve found her! I hope you like my gift.” Moon smiled at Foxi, hoping that she had done a good job, and that it was a good Christmas gift. She handed over a small piece of paper tied with a bright red ribbon. Foxi unwrapped the ribbon…

Life, love, and laughter.
They become rolled into one
In the holidays.

The gray and white cat
Reads to the beat of Kpop
Moment is perfect

Friends and family
They come from near and far now
For the holidays.

Mint scents fill the air
The song of BTS rings
Smooth like Butter right?

All of BlogClan sings
The choirs and choruses
Through the holidays

“I hope you enjoy Minty!”
