THE WINTER GATHERING

The Winter Gathering was announced officially in mid-January, and from there teams, and schedules were created. Mounty and Swiffers donated their time to create some awesome Gathering art, while Osprey, myself, and the rest of the moddos planned out everything behind the scenes! The theme of this years Gathering was the Original Clans, in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Warrior Cats! The Gathering finally arrived the weekend of February 4th, and we spent the whole time having fun. There were tons of games, contests, and chatting, and overall it was just a good time! The results came out on February 20th. Pop over there to check out the detailed results, read the writing contest entries, and take a peek at the art contest entries. For those who’d prefer a quick summary, I have a mini summary right here:

Art Contest Winners: 3rd – Hazelsplash, 2nd – Icepelt, 1st – Eggpaw

Writing Contest Winners: 3rd – Nightwind, 2nd – Mountainstorm, 1st – Dusklight

Team Winners: 4th – ThunderClan, 3rd – ShadowClan, 2nd – RiverClan, 1st – WindClan

Congrats to everyone who won, and thank you to everyone who participated. It was such a fun event, and I can’t wait til the next one!!

COMING UP

Clanniversary Change: To help me time manage a bit more, and make sure everyone still gets recognized, the Clanniversaries will be permanently switching over to Round Up posts. The timing of these will change, depending on what I have going on and how many Clanniversaries need to be posted, but they will happen. Thank you all for being so patient with me, I really appreciate it <3

Birthdays in the Coming Months: Hi everyone, this is Aquila here for a paragraph! I just wanted to let you all know of my plans for the birthdays up until mid-June. I’m currently in year 11 in England and this year is an exam year for me with some quite important exams called GCSEs I have to sit in May and June. Therefore, I sadly no longer have the time to make individual posts for you all until after my exams are all over as I need to revise. If you submitted your birthday for March after the 20th February 2023, you will be included in a round up post at the end of March instead of an individual post – so if you don’t see a post for you, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten you, this is why! πŸ™‚ Also for everyone who has a birthday between April-June, there will be something a little different, regardless of when you submitted your form with your birthday in. That’s all, I’ll hand back to Lil now, and I hope this clears up some questions you might have in the coming months.

Trailing Stars: We are currently working on finishing up the final chapter of Trailing Stars – I’m not sure how long it’ll take but I just wanted to let you know it is in the works!

BLOGCLANNER FEATURES

DUSKLIGHT

Greetings, weary traveller.
Atop a vast snowy landscape, you will find three clans of cats. Three groups of noble warriors who strive to survive in the most frozen and unforgiving of lands. After a terrible storm destroyed the original clans, three littermates rose from the ashes and formed new clans…

But the challenge was too great. They couldn’t survive, let alone build up new clans in the frozen land. So, their mother made a sacrifice, and the nearly faded ancestors of the original clans put all their strength together.

Each of the littermates were given legendary powers to lead their clans to survival.

Falconstar, leader of FalconClan, was given the gift of flight. Massive feathered wings, sprung from his back, which could propel him great distances.

Cometstar, leader of CometClan, received extreme speed, agility, and jumping abilities, while her littermate, Aquastar, leader of AquaClan, received glowing patches of fur, thick skin, and the ability to control water.

They passed these traits down to their ancestors, and the clans thrived… Until something went wrong.

The cats started fighting each other. Each battle grew more and more brutal. The clans forgot their origins, and cats grew hungry for conquest. The clans were dying.

The three legendary leaders, now long deceased, convened for the last time, and decided on one last desperate attempt to save the clans. They knew the risk they were taking, how deadly the choice they were about to make was.

This is the story of that final attempt.

This is my photogenic cat, Tiger. She loves to loaf or curl up on pillows and blankets. She is very special to me and I just want everyone to have a chance to see her. πŸ™‚
