|Secret of the Shadows

As a child I used to love reading Warrior Cats (Erin Hunter), I love Thor and Loki and suddenly I started thinking about this story plot line of what they would be like in the world of warriors! It has a similar story line to the Thor movie, you'll get the idea after the first chapter. I might leave this a one-shot, just an idea I wanted to try, only read if you are a kid at heart!Rated: Fiction K - English - Adventure/Drama - Chapters: 5 - Words: 6,401 - Reviews: 5 - Favs: 2 - Follows: 1 - Updated: 03-26-13 - Published: 12-05-12 - id: 8769302

"Come on Nightpaw, you haven't caught a piece of prey all morning!"
"Well Thunderpaw," The cat said with undisguised bitterness, "Some of us have better things to worry about, than collecting prey!" As he said that, the cat appeared from behind a bunch of bushes, his slick black pelt shimmering in the sunlight and his emerald green eyes showing nothing but annoyance.
"How can you say that brother?!" The other cat mewed in shock, "collecting prey is important for the clan and we must all do our part or we'll starve before leaf fall comes!" The cat approached his brother, his muscles flexing under his fluffy white pelt and his dark blue eyes pleading his brother to understand the necessity of catching prey.
Nightpaw flicked his tail in annoyance and scoffed, "the only reason we need to catch so much prey is because you eat as if you're a whole clan. What we should be focusing on is the threat of attack. We need to start planning, and preparing." Nightpaw began pacing back and forth.
Thunderpaw mewed in amusement, "You worry too much brother!" Thunderpaw gave his brother an affection shove; which was only returned with an accusing glare. "Father has everything under control, if we should be worrying he would have told us."
"Father?" Nightpaw scoffed back, "Cloudstar is becoming weak; you know he is close to losing another life and who knows how many he has left!" Nightpaw began pacing again. "He is too worried about leaf bare to see what is coming, what…will happen…He...hasn't been the same...not since that day..." Nightpaw stopped, his gaze drifting unfocused to his paws. Thunderpaw noticed this and placed his fluffy white tail comforting over Nightpaw's shoulders.
"Brother, we all morn for her, but for the sake of the clan you must put this dream out of your head and focus on the present." Thunderpaw mewed, giving Nightpaw a concerned look.
"How can I?! Starclan sent me a message, a message about the fate of the clan! They must think I can stop it, but I don't know how?!" Thunderpaw sighed, he could see his brother was growing more agitated the more they talked, he just wish he knew how to put his brother's mind at ease.
"Brother…" he began, "How do you know it is Starclan? Medicine cats are the ones who receive their signs, not warriors or warrior apprentices for that matter." This seemed to anger the young cat even further, his tail twitching in annoyance.
"I know what I saw! She wouldn't lie to me Thunderpaw! Not…her…" Nightpaw sighed, "She wouldn't…" He looked back up defiantly, "I will show you, no, I will prove to you she is right! I know not why she chose me but she did, and I will fight to my last breath to save this clan! So you worry about your precious prey, I need to figure out what her prophecy means." Nightpaw turned and started to dash through the forest, over logs, rocks and twigs. No matter how fast he ran, he was a silent as the Night, not so much as a piece of prey heard a sound he made.
"Brother…wait! Our mentor's will be furious if we return without prey to feed the clan!" Nightpaw stopped at the top of the hill and turned.
"Then be sure to catch enough prey for the both of us, and be sure to not eat it on your way back!"
Thunderpaw sighed in defeat, "What did she say to have you so concerned?" Nightpaw visibly tensed, his emerald eyes looked distant but focused, as if he was looking right through Thunderpaw, at something he could not see.
"She said…Shadows will pierce the heart of those we love; darkness will rule heart of where there once was light. Only truth will set things right and only the storm will bring back the light." Without saying another word Nightpaw disappeared behind the hill, on a mission to find the meaning behind the mysterious prophecy. I promise you mother, I won't let darkness rule the heart of our clan!
Well that's it to part one! I know the idea may be silly but if you are a fan of Erin Hunter I hope you liked it. Nightpaw is Loki, Thunderpaw is Thor, Cloudstar is Odin and the cat who sent the message is Sunflower (Frigga), Nightpaw and Thunderpaw's mother.
My story isn't going to include any of the character's erin hunter uses, and although I combined story ideas, the characters are not mine, just using them for the story idea. It has been quite a while since I read her books so I hope this is similar-I guess I'll find out the more I write.
What do You think? Should I continue with this idea?
