Another day, another trip to the Moonstone. He was used to it by now. In the cold quiet darkness of early morning, Pricklepaw gathered two near bundles of the regular traveling herbs and brought them over to the camp entrance, sitting and patiently waiting for the apprentice. He'd changed a lot since he'd been shoved into the position of medicine cat apprentice- he no longer considered most Moonstone journeys a hassle and waste of time, but just part of his job. Of course, that didn't mean he liked his responsibilities... just that he was used to them.

Dawnpaw emerged from the apprentices' den. She'd already been informed of the trip she was about to take, and wondered briefly about the implications of her blood and the task she was required to complete. Obviously Leopardstar expected her to succeed at... whatever it was she had to do, or he wouldn't have had her undertake it yet. She shook out her pelt, licked it down, and found Pricklepaw by the camp entrance. He wasn't much of a stranger anymore, just another cat with a job and the will to do it. She appreciated that he wasn't annoying like most of the other apprentices. granted, he was an adult cat with the 'paw suffix, but she didn't know what his training entailed so she didn't think poorly of him for it.

"Greetings, Pricklepaw." She meowed, in one of her rarer good moods.

Of all the apprentices he'd interacted with recently, Dawnpaw was among the most sensible. It was easy to forget that she was Lichenmask's kit, though he didn't hold that against her. He was half rogue himself; parentage entailed nothing. "Good morning," he responded to her, not smiling but also not grumpy as usual. His face was kind. "Here, eat these herbs. They're bitter, but they'll make the journey easier."

She appreciated the warning. At least she had expected the taste when she complied rather than being caught off-guard, but that didn't make them taste any better. Dawnpaw swallowed the herbs with hardly more than a twitch of her nose, more interested in heading out than dwelling on plants. The journey would likely be cold and tiring, but at least she would be alongside Pricklepaw and not her bees-for-brains mentor. "Ready when you are." She said. She didn't want thoughts of Beartooth to darken her mood.

Pricklepaw nodded, glad that she wasn't like the other immature apprentices who were either overeager, or complained about the taste. He flicked his tail and began to walk out of camp, knowing that she would follow.

**time skip**

After a fairly quiet and uneventful journey, they were finally at Mothermouth. The dark entrance gaped open wide, looking ready to swallow the two apprentices- despite the fact that one was the size and age of a fully grown warrior. Because he'd seen the admittedly creepy sight so many times, Pricklepaw was unfazed. "Okay, Dawnpaw, this is it. The tunnels are really dark, so follow close behind me, okay?" After glancing back for confirmation, he set out into the dark passages that led to the Moonstone.

Dawnpaw examined the tunnel from a distance. She wasn't too keen on entering, but it was clear there would be no other way to finish this ritual. Her lip curled at the thought of returning to camp having failed in her task. Her lip stayed curled when she considered that task: to speak with StarClan. Lichenmask's daughter wasn't too keen on StarClan; they'd betrayed her family. There would be nothing to say to them here.

The long-furred she-cat nodded at Pricklepaw's instructions, her face becoming composed and expressionless once more. This would be over soon. Dawnpaw suck close to the medicine cat apprentice, ensuring that she brushed against his tail every other step.

Pricklepaw's pawsteps were sure and silent, padding effortlessly through the tunnels. He followed the same path he always had, and he probably could have made it with his eyes closed, too. Soon, a faint trickle of light seeped across his chosen path, signifying that they were close- and sure enough, a few moments later, there they were. The Moonstone. A tall spire of sparkling crystal, reaching up towards the heavens... to Pricklepaw, it was just a cold hunk of rock, as caring as StarClan themselves. "We're here," he meowed, glancing back to his charge. "Just lay down and press your nose to the stone, and StarClan will visit you."

Dawnpaw was, admittedly, feeling much more claustrophobic than she expected. Cats simply weren't meant to be underground, she decided as she blindly followed Pricklepaw. A shiver went up her spine as the brilliant moonstone was revealed, and she was at once awed and repelled. She could practically taste StarClan in this place, and she hated it. The large she-cat hesitated for a few moments, knowing what she was expected to do yet reluctant to go near the symbol of her family's betrayers. She already had to stare at Silverpelt every night of her life. Why wouldn't they leave her alone?

After inhaling a deep breath, Dawnpaw finally moved towards the stone and prepared to obey Pricklepaw's instructions. If he wondered why she paused, then he could mind his own business. She'd lost her good mood and was suddenly feeling very prickly herself. She settled neatly in front of the stone, fluffy tail tucked close to her body in insecurity, and leaned forward to rest her chin on the cold stone ground and her nose against the brightly lit stone. Feeling the fatigue from the trip, Dawnpaw let her eyes flutter shut with a blank mind.

Her sharp yellow eyes finally opened. Dawnpaw was shocked to find herself completely different: like Fourtrees, but obviously not. Somewhere unnatural. The plains and forests of StarClan. She steadied her expression, steeled against whatever may befall her, and set off in a random direction. Dawnpaw wasn't patient enough for someone to find her. She'd find them, demand whatever it was they wanted, and be over with this quaint little ritual.

After botching it with Burntpaw, and his anti-StarClan views, Brushgaze had been sure they'd never let her do a Moonstone journey again. But they'd relented, and now she stood anxiously in the starry plains, awaiting her daughter Dawnpaw. From what she'd seen, the young cat was doing well, making a respectable name for herself... confirming perfectly. Even that medicine cat who hated everyone seemed to be fine with her. But, would she still love her mother? Had she been indoctrinated, taught to hate, too? Despite her fear, the former warrior held out hope that it wouldn't be so.

However, all doubts melted away when she saw her daughter, standing in the flesh before her. Beautiful fur stunning eyes, grown into every inch a strong warrior... With a cry of happiness, Brushgaze stumbled forwards to embrace her, tail wrapping tightly around the apprentice's firm shoulders. It didn't matter if she was yelled at... as long as she got to hug her daughter again. "Oh, Dawnpaw..." she whispered, the joy of a mother filling every word, "I missed you so much!"

The young she-cat was quite shocked to see her mother in StarClan, the cross-clan lover of her father and a member of the most currently-despised group in recent memory. They'd caused so much chaos and death... "How... are you here?" Dawnapw whispered, too shocked to speak aloud and too confused to say anything more for the moment. A crash of emotions like a suffocating wave came over her body, and suddenly she didn't feel so strong anymore. She accepted her mother's embrace with no struggle, but she did not return the gesture. Dawnpaw felt too lost. Was this even real?

"Please, I... don't understand, mother." She meowed, eyes closed and tail drawn close to herself. "They call you evil. They say you and your cats are in the Dark Forest. Why are you here?" Dawnpaw said, finally opening her eyes. She was angry; angry at her clanmates for saying such terrible things without knowing, angry at the forest cats for slaying her mother, angry at herself for being so lost. She wanted to be a kit again, wrapped up in the barn next to Brushgaze and pressed against all her littermates. They were together. Whole. Even without their father.

Brushgaze was worried for a moment when her daughter didn't return her enthusiasm, fearing a similar situation to Burntpaw's anger, but when she figured out the real reason, she relaxed somewhat. The starry queen smiled wryly, grooming a tuft of fur on Dawnpaw's head... amotherly gesture she hadn't done for too long. "The truth is, sweetheart," she meowed warmly, "that we were only following the code and StarClan's will. It wasn't our fault that they had arguments among themselves... We just did what we thought was right. So, most of us made it here." Her eyes darkened a little as she remembered her brother Aspenpaw, driven insane by injury and loyalty, lost to the Dark Forest. "But your father... He's not here. I think killing Littlestar was a bit too much to allow him entry. And honestly, I doubt he'd be happy here- or happy with me."

A deep, heavy sigh escaped Dawnpaw as if she had been holding it in for all of her young life. She was resigned to her mother's grooming, silently appreciating the unhindered love and compassion from her own flesh and blood, even if Brushgaze did not literally have either of those things. At this moment, she desperately and bitterly wished that things had been different: that her litter had never gone after the warring cats, that Brushgaze had stayed behind in the barn and had remained loners, that Lichenmask was a good cat who had never brought the forest to its knees. "Those flea-brained scumbags," Dawnpaw meowed heavily, though without the venom such words would typically contain, "they're just cats, aren't they? We assume they're all-powerful and all-knowing when they're just warriors who are not living anymore. And why, then, should they not make mistakes? How foolish of us to see gods in relics."

The striped tortoiseshell finally met her mother's gaze, lifting her muzzle and standing to her full height. Some might have fallen into despair at this revelation, that those who the clans rely on are as subject to errors as the clans themselves, but it was clarifying for Dawnpaw. She leaned in to nuzzle Brushgaze, genuinely pleased to be wrapped in her scent and silky pelt once more. A gentle smile crossed her muzzle, and she pulled back to speak once more. "Mother, I'm grateful that you were the one to speak to me. I've missed you very much. And I will keep missing you. I'll try to keep Duskpaw safe, but I can't promise anything about the others." Her deep amber eyes scanned the starry plains as she mused on her new knowledge. "Yes... StarClan. I understand. I am the only one in control of myself. And only the living can enforce order among the living."
