Featherfrost of ShadowClan | Gathering | Open
Featherfrost’s eyes narrowed as they padded into the clearing, searching the crowd for anyone familiar. They could talk to their siblings, of course, but they saw them every day. Where was the fun in talking to someone you already knew? They sat at the edge of the clearing, taking into account how many cats they knew and how many they didn’t. They didn’t have very many friends in other Clans. They didn’t see the point, after all, but Gatherings were always interesting. They meant they got a glimpse at how some of the other Clans were doing.
They considered that for a long moment before searching the crowd for Hollowstripe and Ravenwhisper in particular. Who were they talking to? Perhaps Featherfrost could intercept their conversation – that could be fun. They moved forwards a couple of steps, incredibly aware of how many cats were pressing in around them. It was always odd to think that they would be enemies again come morning.
Brambleleaf of RiverClan | Gathering | Open
Gatherings were exciting. Brambleleaf was practically trembling by the time he reached the clearing, searching the crowd for anyone he knew. There weren’t many cats he was familiar with – he hadn’t been to that many Gatherings, after all. Still, he caught sight of some other cats they remembered from a few gatherings before and wondered vaguely about whether or not he should join. He almost moved forward, but hesitated. Would he even be welcome? Would they remember him? He shook the thought off and padded towards the center of the clearing. Even if he didn’t end up talking to someone he knew, surely he’d see someone else who was looking for someone to talk to… right? He shifted anxiously on his paws, not wanting to waste this opportunity to speak to others he normally wouldn’t be able to.
Viperstrike of WindClan | Gathering | Open
Viperstrike sat on the outskirts, watching. Assessing. She didn’t know if the other Clans brought cats that were the most representative of their strongest warriors, but she wouldn’t be surprised. As much as this was an opportunity to mingle and catch up, it was also an opportunity to get a glimpse of how the other Clans were faring. To compare, however subtly, their strength. She was good at blending in, good at watching, and she figured few cats noticed her there. Good. If she saw someone she wanted to talk to, she would find an excuse to do so. Until then… she was more comfortable watching and waiting. She had a feeling it was easier to get to know cats that way. To see who they spoke to and why, to see which cats were tense around each other. She understood the importance of Gatherings, but that didn’t mean she didn’t also consider them incredibly performative.
