Why this is here:
Well, for starters, I'm kind of retracing my steps for how I learned English. Yes, English is my first language, but trust me when I say that I was late learning reading and writing (12+ at the time I started doing either). So I figured I'd tap into that same Special Interest Juice that got me started and try to do it again. Special Interest in Warriors is still going, so might as well do this again. Try to write Fan Fiction in German.
Now, of course, I don't honestly think any of the 5 German-speaking users here will take mercy and effort on me to tell me how BAD these are, but I figure even bad writing is still writing. I started out my first fic by being unable to correctly spell 'welcome' - I think I can live with not structuring a sentence in the right order if I eventually build up to better.
At any rate, if you wanted to, www.deepl.com/translator is a good place to translate things, if you were dedicated enough to read in English. I'll likely be using it to look up words and try to get sentence grammar correct. Do I know all the words here? No. Did I look them up? Yes. Do I know if they are right? No. Take this as a learner learning German. Please don't use me as a teacher of it. I will fail you. XD However, as I am having to use DeepL as a very large crutch, it means it'll sound Google-translatey in German, but translate fine back into English, so there you go. XD

Zusammenfassung: Splittermond und Zerbrochenesonne sind Geschwister. Sie würden alles füreinander tun. Eines Tages stirbt Splintermoon. Zerbrochenesonne muss alles tun, um ihre Schwester zu retten. Selbst wenn es den Tod bedeutet. Zerbrochenesonne muss lernen, was es braucht, um ihre Schwester vor dem schlimmsten Schicksal zu bewahren, das sie kennt.
Grassprecher erhielt eine Prophezeiung vom SternenClan, als Splittermond und Zerbrochenesonne noch Kätzchen waren. Die eine würde den Clan retten. Die andere würde zu seiner Zerstörung führen. Am zweiten Mond ihrer Kriegerschaft wird die Prophezeiung wahr und versetzt alle in Panik. Dennoch ist Zerbrochenesonne überrascht, als sie ihre Schwester ermordet auffindet. Das Problem? Die Prophezeiung hat nie gesagt, welche Katze den Clan zerstören wird. Und Zerbrochenesonne weigert sich, ihre Schwester sterben zu lassen.
Jetzt ist es ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit - und gegen den SternenClan - um ihre Schwester wieder zum Leben zu erwecken. Selbst wenn das bedeutet, die Prophezeiung zu erfüllen.
Zerbrochenesonne: Splittermond: Grassprecher:
Die Nacht des Vollmonds war kalt. Splittermond starrte zu dem hohen Baum hinauf und seufzte.

This makes me miss German class! I studied for about 7 years, and it followed me from middle school to college, so your writing really takes me back. It honestly reads really well! I was able to follow and get invested, even after three years away from the language. I def relate with your observation— syntax/sentence construction was always the hardest part for me. I would always keep my sentences really simple for graded assignments, just because I was afraid of losing points XD

Eine kleine Aktualisierung der Zusammenfassung.
I've come to the conclusion of two things:
This summary, since I mostly had to use DeepL like a very large crutch, is probably going to be more detailed then the fic itself.
Secondly, I'm wondering how much I can make an actually detailed fic with very simple sentences. Because that's what I should start with. I probably shouldn't try jumping into the same level of writing I can do with English fics. So, as I'm usually trying to challenge myself with fics anyway, that's my second layer of a goal. 1) Tell it in German. 2) Tell it with primarily A1 and A2 vocab. Keep it simple, so I'll actually learn.
