after her voice was spoken, each leader either nodded their approval at moving forward or voicing their own opinions on the matter. while it was nice every moon to sit and chat peacefully between the leaders, redstar wasn't there to sit idlely by as the conversation was the same every moon. "how is the prey running?" and blah, blah, blah. "yes, i agree," magpiestar stated first, his voice the same as usual with his wise tone. "while the night may still be young, there's plenty of time for chit-chat afterward. i can see we have all brought at least a few apprentices and while teaching them that patience is a virtue, i suppose we shouldn't let the younger ones wait too much longer." as a response, redstar cast a blue-eyed gaze down towards the gathered felines, chatting amongst themselves as she looked at the various apprentices there.
once falconstar chimed in, commenting that he was ready whenever they were, offering riverclan and magpiestar to go first, it happened. magpiestar stepped forward, and while he was twice her age, still held his head high, wisdom in his voice, and a tone that could match no others. he wasn't elderly or fragile in the least, she'd seen that over her many moons as leader, but it did sadden her to think that one day, she would no longer be able to hear his words at the gatherings. even as an apprentice, magpiestar- then magpiethorn -had high prises from her father even before he became deputy. "thunder, shadow, wind, river, and sky," the riverclan leader started before continuing on with his clan's news. it was stated that yewtail, the now former deputy had stepped down and another warrior had taken her place. at the news, redstar looked down to the white warrior's form, nodding in approval for the new deputy.
shadowclan took their turn next with rosestar in the helm, the news that she had stated many things, the first that had caught her attention was a loner drifting through shadowclan territory to windclan. was it one of the same loner that her warriors have been scenting around the territory? eventually it came down to another deputy stepping down with onyxfeather taking the place of neritefang; nodding once more at the new choice for deputy. hopefully with riverclan and shadowclan these new deputies would stay in the position but nothing was for certain. finally, pinestar took his chance to speak out talking about how all of his prey had returned, the amount of apprentices that he's gained over the last moon, a new medicine cat apprentice, and a new queen. fantastic.
once pinestar stepped back, redstar took her chance to move forward, her ginger pelt bright in the moonlight. "windclan has been well since newleaf began," the she-cat started, flicking her tail lightly. "hailbreeze's kits have finally become apprentices and thus windclan welcomes hazelpaw, honeypaw, harepaw, and heronpaw; unfortunately they had just recently started their training and thus are not in attendance tonight." the ginger windclan leader paused for a moment, before casting a smile down at flurrypaw, her newest apprentice in training for medicine cat, thankful that beetleberry seemed pleased to be training someone. "however, flurrypaw has also reached the age of her apprenticeship, and has chosen the medicine cat's path and has joined beetleberry for her training."
as a final note, redstar turned her gaze to rosestar, her voice still calling out in the clearing. "Rosestar, you may want to have your warriors checking the border a bit more, we've caught scents of our own of loners and rogues on the moors crossing back and forth between the border." with this, redstar flicked her tail once again in irritation that she and rosestar couldn't have spoken in private about talk of rogues and loners, deciding to call the she-cat out on her lack of patrols. "either your warriors aren't scenting it properly, or they aren't going far enough down to the end of the territories." ending herself there before she potentially said something she'd probably regret and get starclan angry with them, redstar took her steps back to take her seat once again, ready for falconstar to finish with the formalities.
