It warms you up , creeping up your feathers, swirling around you. The forest is alive with song, making its way into your heart, echoing within. Twisted shadows dance, lurking in the trees, flickering in the corner of your eyes. You choose to ignore them, for doubt turns away from the path of victory. You concentrate on the soft, pale green grass pressing coolly into your feet. You concentrate on following a tiny gurgling river, winding its way through the trees. You are walking. Walking with no thought, yet walking with no doubt. You have been walking for an eternity; time did not exist. Your feet are sore from all those days. Yet your mind guides you down that invisible path, and you know, just know that you are getting closer. Around a small rose bush you turn. Through half-closed eyes, you jerk your head up, defying the will to sleep. And you stop. A chirp escapes you, resonating through your body, warming you up. Ahead, its beautiful. The land has opened up. Trees space themselves out and give way to wet, pebble-coated land, shimmering in the light. The river snakes up into a small waterfall. The land is covered with grass and plants... ♦ The river - A tiny, shallow river teeming with life. Silver fish lurk in its shallow depths, as well as water voles, otters, crabs and other sea creatures. Moss and useful herbs grow in its depths and around it. ♦ The Gnarled Willow - An old willow growing beside the river, useful for training purposes. Often water voles will reside near its roots. ♦ The Tangled field - A field growing wild with weeds, wildflowers and tall stalks of grass. Many herbs are found here. Plump mice also reside, however snakes may lurk. ♦ Whispering falls- Full of life and song, the waterfall shrouds the entrance to AriaClan camp. It is not loud, instead calm and ringing, weaving down the cliff. On stormy days it is known to roar with strange intensity. ♦ The entrance - A small cleft behind the waterfall forms the entrance to the camp. Roughly the size of a cat, it is well hidden; only sharp eyes and those accustomed are able to find it. It continues as a narrow, winding path carved up the cliff, emerging near the entrance of the medicine den. ♦ The Spring - A pool of fresh, cold water dwells in the center of the camp. It is the main source of drinking water . It tends to flood when a storm occurs, causing the land around to become muddy with water. ♦ Dreaming Oak - A massive hollow tree, wide but not tall, forming the sleeping niche of apprentices, warriors and elders. Apprentices (closer to the ground) and warriors (higher up) sleep on nests in the forks of its large branches, shielded from the rain by its thick leaves which grow everlastingly. The elders sleep in the warm hollow of the oak, shielded by an entrance of ferns. ♦ The food den - A large and sturdy den constructed of weeds, twigs, and mud. Inside is fresh food for all to share, which is replenished daily by the clan members. ♦ Medicine Den - Formed from three great trees. Over many moons, the trees have intertwined with each other to form a sturdy, sheltered canopy and hollow. Shelves in the bark are used for storage, and other herbs may be grown at the roots snaking inside the den. The base is made up of soft moss, leaves and petals, and is cushiony and warm. ♦ Nursery - Made of woven brambles, the nursery is always pleasantly warm and sheltered. Repairs must be made once a moon. [/b](Under construction!!) ♦ Leader's rock - A huge rock jutting from the ground, enveloped in soft moss, sitting close to the spring. This is where the leader makes clan announcements. ♦ The Underground Stream - Small yet spirited, an underground stream shapes the source of the waterfall and the spring. It is unknown to the clan cats, though a slight rumbling of moving water can be heard drifting in the distance. A Silver eyed Phoenix hen calmly walks up to you, and briefly bows her head to greet you. "Welcome, to WingClan. I am Moonstar, the leader of WingClan.
