These notes are brief, noting major events and minor events in Dovewing's Silence that will be of consequence later. They are intended to be used as a reference for those looking for specific events for re-reading and the book discussions.

  • ThunderClan finishes their vigil, and Purdy asks everyone to help bury the fallen, since he is the only elder and he can't do it alone.
  • The former Dark Forest trainees are kept away from the burials, since their Clanmates see them as traitors.
  • The bodies of Hollyleaf, Ferncloud, Mousefur, Firestar, and Sorreltail are carried to the burial place.
  • Leafpool stands over each body and performs the ceremony that sends them to StarClan, although Dovewing remembers seeing their spirits leaving already.

  • Two sunrises since the battle, ThunderClan has been fixing the camp, and most are still hostile towards the former Dark Forest trainees.

  • Onestar arrives with his medicine cat Kestrelflight and the warrior Breezepelt. They are soon followed by Mistystar with her medicine cat, Mothwing, and the warrior, Icewing.
  • Mistystar and Onestar are confident of the loyalty of the former trainees in the Clan, but Blackstar isn't as much.

  • Dovewing tries to explain her powers have gone, but Jayfeather insists that saving his Clanmate is more important right now.

  • Jayfeather is unable to save Foxleap, and Foxleap dies as he sleeps.

  • Sandstorm has whitecough, and has kept the warriors awake with her coughing for three nights.
  • Berrynose complains they won't be able to keep up patrols, so he and his mate and kits join Purdy in the elders' den while Squirrelflight and Sandstorm move to the apprentices' den.
  • The Clan still gives signs of hatred towards the former Dark Forest trainees.

  • The sickness is still spreading; it has even reached ShadowClan.

  • The warriors organize patrols among themselves. Dovewing leads a patrol of the former trainees.
  • Molepaw and Cherrypaw report about a fox, and encourages the patrol to take it on.

  • They explain their powers are not needed anymore, but that doesn't mean the Clans don't need them anymore.
  • Midnight gives advice to each individual cat:
    • To Lionblaze that going into battle at the risk of injury is true courage.
    • To Jayfeather to let his Clanmates' thoughts and dreams hide from him.
    • To Dovewing to use her eyesight and hearing like her Clanmates do, her senses will never be weaker than theirs.
  • Rock and Midnight say that the true power every Clan cat shares is the warrior code.
