Thunder and Shadow

In the ShadowClan camp, when several of the apprentices protest about their Clan, Sleekpaw notes that they are now only being peaceful, and Juniperpaw agrees that even WindClan don't respect them anymore. He recalls how, at the last Gathering, Fernpaw called them a bunch of frog-eaters, but how in the old days apprentices from other Clans wouldn't dare speak to ShadowClan apprentices like that.
At another Gathering, the ThunderClan and RiverClan apprentices enthusiastically greet each other, but Fernpaw and Brindlepaw, the WindClan apprentices, eye them eagerly yet don't move from their mentors' side.
During another Gathering, Cypresspaw, a RiverClan apprentice at her first Gathering, shifts closer to her sister, Wavepaw, as Brindlepaw and Fernpaw pad toward them. She breathes that she didn't think there would be so many cats, but her sister reminds her of the truce.
