He had been prepared to dive back into the battle after defeating his two challengers, seeking out an opponent when he realized it was almost over. Only two small battles seemed to perpetuate this war. Oakstar was yowling at the still dueling pair of leaders as a clanmate successfully fended off another warrior. Just as he considered assisting in chasing the tom away, he was briefly distracted seeking out Ferretnose. Beartooth was concerned with the wound she might bare. The she-cat and he had fought side by side before but a mere border skirmish could not compare this. But before he could find the familiar pelt. Something slammed into his side and sent his paws out from under him. A couple taillengths from where he had once stood, the tom regained his footing on massive paws. Had there been a back up Shadowclan patrol lying in wait? Was there more fighting to be done? Claws unsheathed and dug into the earth below.

As his green gaze landed on a blue-pelted warrior, the yowls began to register in his ears. 'You killed my brother!' What? Beartooth glanced down at his paws, unsurprisingly speckled with the blood of Shadowclan. Neither of the cats he had battled had died. They had both left alive. Confusion crossed the Thunderclan deputy's maw. Just as he prepared to seek an answer, eyes searching for the fallen body of one of his opponents, Ferretnose was there, between the pair of them. He reveled in her warmth and the comfort that came from having her at his side. While some cats might have taken it as the opportunity to protect their arrived clanmate, he knew that the other cats lacked enough fight to take on both of them. Besides, if she had some strength in her, Ferretnose could hold her own. But he hardly considered these matters beyond an subconscious recognition. There was a greater matter... he was once again being accused of killing someone.

The resurgence of guilt seemed to rise in him for a moment. It had been bred from Pricklebush's disgust and hatred. With the medicine cat's death so fresh, he found that hatred once again within him. Never before on his own had the bulky tom found self-disdain in defending his clan. But now he could hardly find a word to speak and when his maw parted, "Both cats walked away from battle."

The tom had been so sure that he'd be able to take on Thornstar, but when he felt her powerful back legs pushing him off of her, he wasn't so sure. He attempted to roll over onto his side and avoid her attack altogether, but before he had the chance he felt the heavy weight of her paws on his neck.

His vision went dark immediately, and a sharp ringing filled his ears.

Beanpaw's entire body felt numb, and the only thing he could feel was a slight, sharp tingle in the exact spot where Thornstar's paws had been just seconds before. He was stuck somewhere on the thin line between life and death, but the fluffy black and white apprentice couldn't bring himself to feel the slightest bit of emotion about that. All he could think about was how unfair this was for everyone, on both ShadowClan, ThunderClan, and SkyClan's side of things. He just wanted to go back home- for everyone to go back home, but now that wasn't going to happen. Both sides had casualties, and they were so unnecessary- so uncalled for! There was never meant to be a war, yet now there was... and he was partially to blame for that. How could he have been so stupid, so ignorant of the code, and what his Clan stood for?

All thoughts were erased when the smell of sweet pine trees hit him and that bothersome ringing in his ears screeched to a halt, replaced with the earth-shattering silence around him. The pitch-black that he'd already grown used to was replaced by the vivid colors of Highpine, and the blood staining the ground beneath him. At that moment, Beanpaw suddenly realized what was happening. He had died, and now he was going to... Oh, dear StarClan. He was going to go to the Dark Forest. Panic overcame the tom as he frantically tried to force himself to wake up, to move just a paw. All of it was in vain, and he clenched his eyes shut tightly as the sounds of Foxfire's yowling filled his ears, louder than it would normally have been. He just wanted to curl up in his den, to start this day over... To go back in time. If he had another chance, there were so many things he would have done differently. He never would have maimed Flintshard, he would have tried harder, supported his Clan in trying times... He would have made more friends, and fewer enemies. He would have done everything differently.

When Beanpaw finally opened his eyes, he was shocked. Instead of seeing the dead, twisted trees of the Dark Forest, he lifted a single paw and blinked again, realizing the pure beauty surrounding him. His dark pelt was groomed to perfection and filled with sparkling stars, and the scars he'd just earned in battle had completely vanished. For a moment, he was filled with pure bliss before a voice behind him pulled his attention elsewhere. "You fought bravely, little one." Tears filled the tom's eyes as he looked over his shoulder, realizing who the voice belonged to. He'd never met the she-cat, but he knew in an instant exactly who she was. The voice belonged to his mother, and Beanpaw had never run faster in his life.

Spottedstar rolled and ducked, thrown by Thornstar's violent shove, and braced for another impact. He didn't know how long he could keep this up, only that one of them would be dead at the end of this duel and that he'd do everything in his power to ensure that it was her. Snarling, teeth bared in bloodied defiance, Spottedstar dared his opponent to make the next move, but a flash of white blurred in and out of the battle as Sunflower struck Thornstar; that had been shocking, and it jarred the SkyClan leader from his kill-or-be-killed mindset. He was disturbed that a clanmate would violate his terms of the duel, but as he remembered that a bigger battle had raged around them, he decided that Sunflower had violated no rules since all trust had been broken between the clans. 'Why should I be forced to observe rules they've already broken? Why can't my clan defend me the way I've tried to defend them?'

And so he prepared to strike in Thornstar's moment of distraction, rearing again on his hind legs, but he redirected his blow at the last moment to the ground beside her when the blur of Beanpaw's form cut between the leaders. And she rolled, slipping away briefly, before she killed him with a single heavy strike. Spottedstar gasped, amber eyes wide and limbs going completely numb in the face of death before him. Beanpaw. The tom he'd protected as a kit, stopping him from eating deathberries. He'd said something very foolish to the tomkit that day, and Beanpaw had disliked him ever since. Yet he died here for Spottedstar's sake. To Thornstar. On a mission to preserve peace. Somewhere in the background, Foxfire's voice called out in horror.  The sounds of battle had halted long before Spottedstar realized it. He was jostled as his deputy ran past him, to the apprentice's body, and began his tirade against the killer. But he cut out, and the ginger leader could tell why as Thornstar's gaze carried the same shock and regret as everyone else in the clearing. Spottedstar looked around at the carnage, the bleeding cats, and the staring onlookers. StarClan, was that... Leaftwirl? Just laying there?

Oakstar looked on, and Spottedstar thought he might have said something that went unheard. This wasn't what anybody wanted - except for that brat Lynxscar. He grit his teeth, fangs bared in fiery anger. And where was he, the catalyst? StarClan would bring a greater wrath on him than Spottedstar could ever dream of, but he could still make him regret his very existence with his claws.

"No." Spottedstar bit back his rage, resisting the urge to demand blood for blood like Lynxscar had done. He wanted it, he needed it - but not tonight. Justice would be found one day. Until then, he had a duty he wish he'd done sooner.

Stepping forward and pushing Foxfire and Thornstar from the proximity of Beanpaw's body, Spottedstar raised his voice into a broken, heated yowl for everyone in the area to hear: "I, Spottedstar, ask my warrior ancestors to look down on Beanpaw. He learned the warrior code and gave up his life in the service of his clan - and ThunderClan and ShadowClan. Let StarClan receive him as a warrior. He will be known as Beanheart for his bravery and loyalty, and SkyClan will never forget his dedication to the cause of justice." Bowing his head and shutting his eyes, Spottedstar buried his nose in Beanheart's thick fur. He would mourn similarly for Leaftwirl, who came home to fight after fleeing the clan. Like his brothers. But they never came back and she did. The fog of war faded fully from his senses. Wounds along his face and stomach stung with a vengeance. His clan looked at him and the bodies and each other, and his heart ached for everything he put them through. He should have come alone.

"SkyClan! Take the bodies and head home. We're done here."

There was a heavy silence that felt crushing until Foxfire found himself being gently shoved away, blinking as he was pulled back into the moment at the spotted pelt of the leader. "Spottedstar...?" he murmured softly, before his eyes widen at the familiar words that rung in the clearing. A warrior ceremony. His eyes closed as he forced himself to breath, to take gentle breaths and calm himself as Spottedstar carried out his duties, giving Beanpaw the warrior name that he had always deserved. Beanheart. Stars, he never deserved to go out like this...

The deputy opened his eyes, staring at the still body of Beanheart until Spottedstar gave an order. "...Right," he uttered, gently stepping forward despite his injuries to grab Beanheart's scruff. His body ached, he wanted to just curl up and rest but...No, he had to be the one to bring Beanheart home. He owned him that much. With a gentle huff, he turned and slowly headed into the treeline, sparing a sad glance toward Flowerthorn as he went. He was thankful that she wasn't one of the lives that had been taken tonight but...Stars, nobody should have died. With a jerk of his head, he motioned for his Clanmates to follow as he led them away from their...Victory?

Was there really a true winner in all of this?

Oakstar felt dismay as his yowls went unheard, the battle continued to drag on… until a sickening crack seemed to echo in the air. Until the body of an apprentice lay still beneath a heavy set paw that pulled back almost immediately, but all too late. Grief struck Oakstar numb for several long agonising moments as cats yowled, as the fighting stopped… and Beanpaw was named Beanheart.

Oakstar had never known the small tom… but one thing was so painfully clear. He hadn’t deserved to die. Spottedstar recalled his warriors, and Oakstar’s gaze lifted to Thornstar’s shocked one. Venomous words twisted on his tongue like adders, but he restrained, instead calling back to his clanmates.
"ThunderClan! We are done here, to camp!" He yowled, his tone holding no room for argument as he gave Thornstar a heavy gaze as he padded past.

"Next gathering." He growled as he padded by, as he leapt on the path that would lead his clanmates home.

Thornstar stared numbly as Spottedstar shoved her away from the tom's body. The cat was clearly beyond the age one would typically name a warrior, but regardless they called him Beanpaw.

This was the cat who had mauled her son.

This was not the justice she had been seeking.

She'd wanted the violent little thing to have to pay for his wrongdoings, but she hadn't been seeking his life. Just as she had with the murderer of Redwing. There was nothing to be learned in death. Nothing to be gained. Spottedstar called for a retreat and his words echoed hollowly in her ears. Oakstar did the same, growling at her in a low tone as he padded past. That also hardly registered. Lifting her gaze, the massive she-cat looked out over the bloody battlefield she'd chosen as their meeting place.

This wasn't supposed to happen like this.

Her gaze focused on her clanmates. Most were broken and bleeding, having retreated to Mothglow's side for temporary aid. Daisyflame was still standing, but he'd clearly been through enough by now. Beyond that, Poppyheart was...

A pang shot through her chest.

He was gone.

Just like his mate.

Maybe that at least, was for the best...

This shouldn't have happened.

"Shadowclan! It's over. Anyone else who dares to raise a single claw on another cat today will be stripped of their rank and removed from the warriors' den." She yowled forcefully. The threat may have sounded harsh, but she didn't much care anymore. Thornstar had tried to rely on respect and trust over the course of her short leadership. Clearly, that wasn't going to work. Not when tempers were this high. As for Lynxscar... he wasn't fit to be deputy. He wasn't even fit to be a warrior at this point. He'd made that perfectly clear with his actions today. His lack of respect and honor would likely land him a better life as a rogue than a clan cat.

That realization weighed heavily on her.

She looked back at Spottedstar, moving to stand before him.

In her eyes, there was only one way to atone for this. One way to settle the score.

"Spottedstar, I want you to take my life." She mewed firmly. "This... carnage was unnecessary. I came here tonight seeking justice for my clanmates. For my son, and for my... sister. I wasn't intending for this. Death was no goal of mine, but that is no excuse. My deputy started the attack, and I stole the life of one of your apprentices. So..." She held her head high, baring her throat to the tom.

"... as such, this is my fault. I will take responsibility."

He dwelled, watching the backs of SkyClan as they left the danger behind them. The forest would cleanse itself. The cats... they would probably never know peace again. Not the living ones, anyway. Spottedstar licked his bleeding muzzle and was suddenly aware of a cut across his mouth. It stung like the rest of his body, but he wouldn't allow himself treatment until he knew all the rest of his warriors had recieved care from Sagelight. He watched Oakstar and ThunderClan go with only silence between him and Spottedstar. The future was uncertain, and this made the ginger leader anxious for the first time.

Thornstar's movement drew his attention back to her. They stood face to face like they hadn't just done violence to one another for lost ideals. His amber eyes narrowed at her first sentence, unsure what to expect. Redwing was Thornstar's sister? And the injured tom was her son, as well. Family ties had fueled the rival leader to avenge the same way that it spurred Spottedstar to defend. But the tom was guilty of fighting for more than defense of those he loved; he also hated Lynxscar for his cowardice and the unnamed ShadowClan warrior for her attack on Foxfire and he hated Thornstar by proxy - he knew ShadowClan by her face and detested her for it, even though he knew better than to blame her for all the death.

Silence. There was no verbal response to her offer. Instead, Spottedstar lunged, jaws parting around her throat and crushing flesh and blood in his iron grasp. His chest was coated in crimson, her blood mixing indistinguishably with his own and dripping onto his paws. He released her neck, setting Thornstar's limp body down softly on the saturated ground. He owed her that much: a kindness in her death that he likely would never show her in life. Disgust bubbled in Spottedstar's belly. Contempt washed over him, not for Thornstar, but for himself. He turned and left her alone in that cursed clearing.

The Skyclan leader hardly hesitated, and soon he was at her neck. She felt a piercing pain, then a crunch crunch, before the hot gurgle of blood filling her throat and lungs overwhelmed her.

...

So this is what it felt like to die.

She couldn't breathe, and the swell of alarm in her chest was only natural in response...

But she didn't struggle.

Soon, it was over... everything was slipping away.

She was slipping away.



When her eyes opened next, the massive she-cat found herself in that misty, grey area once again. The last time she'd seen this place had been just before she received her eye.

Back then she'd been confused...

Alone.

This time however, she quickly realized she was far from alone.

Instead, Thornstar was greeted by a cat with stars shining in her fur, who stared her down with piercing blue eyes and a tongue sharp as the leader's own claws. "What were you thinking? I mean that! I knew you liked to fight, but was all this really necessary? You couldn't try finding some other solution, without going to war? I'd say talk things out leader to leader and keep your deputy there for backup, but look how well that went! Can't even keep control of your warriors, can you? Even the one that's meant to be your most trusted? And all that needless bloodshed! The SkyClan she-cat, one of your own warriors... And let's not forget about the apprentice, while we're going over what happened! And despite all that bloodshed, despite all that death... You didn't even win. You gave up your own life, and so here you are. And what do you have to show for all of it? Nothing! Tell me, Thornstar... What do you have to say for yourself?"

She'd expected as much.

Bitter regret hung heavy in the leader's throat. Her closest friend was never one to hold her tongue, and it showed now more than ever. Thornstar listened to Swanpetal with an even, unwavering gaze.

She was right after all.

She had nothing to show for this madness other than a lost life and a lost clanmate. Her intentions were irrelevant at this point. They weren't worth defending regardless.

As her longtime friend finished her tirade, Thornstar could only bow her head.

"Nothing... You're right."

Swanpetal paused. "...Oh, wow. You've really been torn down, haven't you?"

Thornstar didn't speak. There was nothing to say. She'd only caused more pain for the clan she'd promised Scorchstar she would protect. She had no right.

Her own kits had even paid the price.

Mothglow was going to hate her, for Magpiestar's sake... but she was right to, wasn't she? Seeing Flintshard like that... broken and bleeding... it wasn't in her to handle things peacefully after that. She couldn't do it. Even knowing that, Thornstar couldn't defend her actions. She gave her role as a mother more priority than her role as a leader.

A choice had been laid before her... and she'd chosen wrong.

Stars. Had Swanpetal gone too far? Maybe, when it seemed the leader was already at her lowest point. "Look. I'm only going to say this once, so listen up. You messed up. I'm not going to lie to you to make you feel better. But you have a chance to get up again and do better. So all that's left to say is... Are you going to take it?"

...

Lifting her head, the massive smoky she-cat studied the Riverclanner's gaze for a long moment.

Was she going to take it?

She'd made a promise hadn't she?

She closed her eyes for a moment and took a deep, steadying breath. Thornstar had made a choice... A choice that had led into a monumental mistake.

Now it was time to fix that mistake.

"I will."

When she next opened her eyes it wasn't the starlit face of her friend she saw, but rather the wartorn battlefield she'd left behind.

Spottedstar was gone, and her clanmates stood around her. Each of their faces held a different expression, their eyes glittering in the soft moonlight.

It was time to fix this.

...

I will.

Upon each of the leaders' calls, Daisyflame took such an opportunity to push Dustcloud off of him. Turning his attention to Thornstar, the tom gave one last glance to the she-cat before making his way towards the ShadowClan direction of Highpine. Stopping, he turned to face his leader, who had stayed behind with Spottedstar, and what she requested next wasn't what he'd been expecting at all.

She wanted the SkyClanner to take a life? Part of him wanted to protest, the loyal warrior in him desperate to protect his leader at all costs, but he kept his maw shut, supposing that he understood why she'd want him to do such a thing. A life for two unnecessarily lost lives... it only seemed fair... but watching as it happened was no easy task. Within seconds it was over and him and his clanmates gathered around their leader, eager for her to wake up. Soon enough she was awake, yet no words were spoken as the group of ShadowClanners surrounded her in an eery silence, no-cat knowing quite what to say.
