Alright guys, welcome to my latest project: 100 One-Shot challenge! Using a word randomizer I've come up with a list of 100 themes to write about, one per chapter. Each chapter will be a story all in its own, although it might contain old characters, future characters, or new characters entirely.
Want to join? That's fine! Just PM me that you're joining, and you can tell me about your progress whenever you like. Just a few things:
* Themes MUST be done in order
* You can take a spin on each theme in any way you like! It's your choice how you interpret them.
* There's no set end date in sight, since I'm not sure how long this will take, as I've never done it before. You might want to check my entries every now and then to see if I've set any sort of date.
* All entries for each theme MUST be at least 1,500 words! That way no one can just take an easy path and jot down a few really short things to get ahead.
Now for the themes!

Someone recently reported this fic because this chapter is only a AN chapter, so enjoy a few paragraphs of writing to ensure that it fits the guidelines and does not get reported again~
He crept forward slowly, his eyes narrowed as he spotted the mouse. It looked over its shoulder at him as if it was testing him, twitching its whiskers as if to say Come and get me.
I'll happily oblige, he thought, baring his fangs and springing forward. The mouse sprang nimbly out of the way, and he let out a furious hiss, trying to grab it between his paws. The mouse slipped out from between his paws like a slithering snake, and he let out a low grunt lashing out at the mouse with his claws. It sprang away once more and twitched its whiskers at him playfully, before darting away.
No you don't! He thought angrily and burst through the undergrowth, following the little creature as quickly as he could. The mouse weaved through the undergrowth with ease, and he followed it as quickly as he could.
The mouse disappeared into a cave that he had never seen before; he hesitated, feeling nervous, before leaping into the cave's gaping maw after the mouse. No rodent was getting away from him.
There was a sudden crashing sound, and the light was abruptly blotted out, sending him floundering into darkness; looking over his shoulder, he saw that somehow a boulder had fallen over the entrance to the cave...as if it had been pushed.
A chill ran down his spine, as he heard the sound of tiny claws scratching against stone. He dashed towards the boulder blocking the entrance to the cave, and threw himself against it; it barely budged.
Twigpaws, twigpaws, weaker than a newborn bird, he thought, remembering his Clanmates jeers. His ears flattened and he threw himself against the boulder again, but to no avail.
He heard it again, the tiny claws over stone, but it was louder this time, and there were more of them; a quick sniff told him that the cave was cloaked in mouse-scent. His breath caught in his throat as something ran over one paw. He lashed out blindly, but the mice only laughed at him with quiet squeaks.
Beginning to panic as the clacking of claws grew louder, he lashed out, striking a furry body and sending it flying against the back of the cave; in return, he felt sharp mouth teeth latch onto his tail.
He let out a terrified yowl and raced forward, blundering blindly in the darkness, until agony shot through his body. He yowled with pain and collapsed, ears ringing from the contact with the stone. He felt the little paws racing over his back, heard their tiny squeaks, and realized that the mice were tired of being hunted.
They had taken things into their own paws.
AN: That was terrible, but rules are rules~
