ABOUT

Welcome to Deep in the Meadow, a literate semi-AU Warrior cats roleplay site with a 200 word minimum. DitM features a sandbox play style, a stat system for character development, staff-run NPC accounts for events and encounters, and an overarching political landscape to help structure characters and interactions. Territories are refreshed, but will remain familiar to Warriors RPers. Play as a member of the four Clans or as a Clanless cat - and enjoy!

SITE NEWS

UPDATES - 01/23/18 Site gathering is up here. Please do not post until the leader of your cats clan has. Leaders have the right to deny a cat access to the gathering and will let those who cannot attend know. The gathering can count as one of your active threads for the activity check.

UPDATES - 01/19/18 An activity check is up here. It will run until Tuesday the 30th of January.

UPDATES - 01/17/18 In light of our near every-clan-wide ban/discouragement on apprentices staff wanted to address a few matters. We all know and can relate to the fact that training threads can get boring quickly, but we want to remind users that they don’t need to be the same old things over and over and over again; training threads can be fun, and the concepts that apply to being a warrior can be presented in fun and new ways. Linked are some threads that staff have themselves participated in that demonstrate a wide variety of different directions to tackle training threads from that range from puzzle solving, critical thinking, assassination attempts, games, and even role playing (patrols and the like can count as training threads too). 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. If you want to request a flash event you can ask a staff member or purchase one in the shop, and if you need help brainstorming ideas ask on our discord—we’re a collection of creative folk and we can certainly help one another out. In keeping training threads interesting and fun we hope to get more people signing up to do mentor.

In the same stroke we staff have also noticed a trend in that some sign their apprentices up for mentors, ask for training threads, but then never respond to them (or take months), and in the end end up purchasing apprentice passes for their apprentices to get their names on time. Going forward staff will request you skip signing up for a mentor (you can npc one instead) and just purchase the apprentice pass to save desperately needed mentors for those who will participate and complete training threads so we aren’t wasting mentors/time.

UPDATES - 01/16/18 Starvation Notices have officially gone out in ThunderClan. To prevent more, and to prevent those who have received them from worsening, get your cats out in patrols and hunting! WindClan, not far behind ThunderClan, is officially on notice of starvation, too. Don't be like ThunderClan and put off hunting threads until it's too late.

UPDATES - 01/10/18 Staff has made a slight rule change. You can find this change noted on Rule #17 on the rule sheet, and explained in more depth on the bio guide (specifically the 'history' post, which is linked in Rule #17). Direct any questions to staff. Please make sure to read this update.

UPDATES - 01/09/18 Update concerning clans and clanless cats claiming and challenging for territory. Read about that here. As our largest clan on site we're officially giving ThunderClan a starvation warning. No one is starving quite yet, but they have rumbling bellies and an empty fresh-kill pile more often than not. Get out hunting, and not just on your own territory, ThunderClan, or risk finding starvation and illness notifications in your PMs ;D

UPDATES - 01/02/18 Happy New Year! We have a lot going on on site in terms of clan meeting and exciting, drama-filled going ons. Three of our clans have meetings up, and while two are further along than the third they are still in need of reactions to either help wrap them up, or to help their leader in making her decision. Give them a look: WC, RC, & SC. Once some of these big plot threads wrap up you can expect our next site gathering to get underway.

UPDATES - 12/27/17 There has been a change in DitM's staffing team as Cheshire has had to step away to tackle that thing we call life. You can read about that here. The staff team wishes Cheshire all the best, and a huge thank you for all they've done for the site! In light of how busy we still are we've promoted Yazsh, who has been helping the staff team already with mod stuff and flash event posts, to a full member of the staff team. Be sure to give the ma warm welcome and have patience with them as they learn the ropes! With Cheshire leaving that means Palefeather's and Graystar's plots are at a stand still, but since they are all sorts of tied up into the future of the site staff will be taking on the roles for at least a short while to keep things moving smoothly. Please direct all those character's plot questions to us. Rest assured we'll be working with Cheshire if we have questions, and the sand box environment, to see these through! Have patience with staff as well as we figure out what threads need to be done and get a handle on how to best play these characters. Thank you!

UPDATES - 12/24/17 A few days later than the set date, all accounts in the inactive category have been deleted. If that's you, you're welcome to rejoin at any time; staff can always pull things from the archives for you if you would like to remake characters. Just be aware that you may need to change names or face claims if they have been used in your absence.

UPDATES - 12/21/17 A happy Winter Solstice! Our season on site has been changed to Leaf-Bare. The staff team wishes happy holidays for those celebrating!

UPDATES - 12/06/17 The activity check is over and the site has been aged! Those members who did not respond or check in with staff have been moved to the inactive category and will be deleted on 12/20. If you were moved to inactive, just message a staff member with links to the items you need replaced and the accounts you need moved. For those of you still with us, please check characters' ages and active threads so you can claim any new stats. Please also check mentors & apprentices in case you have gotten a new mentor/become a mentor! Finally, many of us need to update our bios, at the very least to reflect name, rank, and sometimes Clan changes. If I have to call people out by name I will ;).

UPDATES - 11/29/17 We have an activity check going on! Link is here. Members have until December 5th to post. Please speak to staff if you don't think you'll be able to post by then. We are doing it a bit differently this time around so please be sure to read the post completely.

UPDATES - 11/15/17 A big thank you for all those who took the time to audition and show interest in ShadowClan deputy. After discussion between Rainbow & staff we congratulate Gillyflowerthroat (Mink) on getting the position. As promised if you have questions or desire tips in preparation for our next open high rank position you can send staff a PM or DM.

UPDATES - 11/09/17 New skin! Staff is still making tweaks to this top table potion (the link colors and navigation link colors) and to staff/site tables, but otherwise please let staff know if you still see any lingering green colors. A deadline has been set for ShadowClan deputy: Tuesday Nov. 14th. If you'd like to try out please send your auditions in before then, and if you think you will need more time be sure to let staff know.

UPDATES - 11/04/17 Auditions for ShadowClan deputy are now open. Audition form can be found in our high rank info board and all auditions should be sent to the staff team + Rainbow. A deadline will be set at a later date.

UPDATES - 11/02/17 Katzen has stepped back from the site and her role as ShadowClan's leader to focus on her senior year of college. To fill members in on what happened ICly with Vulturestar Rainbow has helpfully written a small AU you can read here.

slow down start again from the beginning I can't keep my head from
spinning out of control
Is this what being vulnerable feels like?

Bramblefrost honestly felt like he was going to be sick. He knew it was ridiculous. He knew he had to stop worrying and get his head out of the dirt but... So much had happened. The loss of his mother, the ever taunting presence of his brothers, Meadowjay trying to become all buddy-buddy with him, him allowing it because who else had he to turn to aside his son? They hunted together sometimes, they talked but that was about it... He had his stomach all up in knots with the situation at paw and knew not what to do with himself. At one point, he was so proud when he saw the kits grow up... Until he realized they were not HIS kits, they were Mintbelly's... And Ryefeather had c h e a t e d on him and--

A sharp intake of breath, he had to CALM down... Claws dug into the ground, heartbeat hammered beneath his chest and finally did he force himself to sit down, putting his fluffy tail somewhat protectively around his paws, gazing ahead. The rodents that they could hunt not, the disease that spread through camp... The kits that were to become apprentices now and... And what would he do with that information? What would happen from this point on? Calm down, Bramblefrost. You are supposed to be HUNTING. Not worry your head off. A scowl, a glare to the side, a shiver passed over him. Coyotecall and Wolfsnout would be ecstatic when he returned with nothing, surely... They'd LAUGH at him... Or show him THEIR catch...

Whatever happened they were still better hunters than him... He h a t e d feeling this miserable... HE could scarcely remember a time where he had been content with his life. Where he had been happy... When Barleyfire and Antlertail had been born... Had grown to be the amazing cats they were now and-- Oh... But that only left him thinking of Barleyfire and how the other tom-- Figure slumping a bit, he found his whiskers drooping as he glanced to the side and--

" R-Ravenfeather! " he squeaked out, fur bushing up and eyes wide. He should have NOTICED someone closing in on him! What if it had been a feral cat?!

Munin wasn't exactly happy with how much she was lingering around Thunderclan. She was on her way back from a rather rough argument with her brother and Zinniathroat, and making her way away from the border as Crowfoot had loudly requested she do. They didn't want her around. The crows and ravens were a lot more rowdy as the irritated she-cat trudged through the snow, her tail lashing from side to side. Thunderclan wasn't fairing well, and out of the goodness of her small heart, she'd attempted to help them.

How typical it was for her baby brother to reject her.

As the black she-cat weaved through the tapered trees along the edge of Thunderclan's territory, a strikingly familiar shape came into view. Her stomach flipped with unease as the tell-tale sight of her old apprentice moved through the trees. @Bramblefrost seemed troubled, and she bit back the urge to sigh. Her and her apprentice had gotten along well enough during their training. He'd been subjected to the tail end of Munin's life in Thunderclan, before Sunfire was even born.

She decided to pull a bit closer to her old apprentice, not quite crossing the border but steadily beginning to close in on him. She kept her movements as quick and quiet as she could as she moved through the snow. She expected her apprentice to see her coming from a mile away, given the fact that black didn't exactly blend in very well with white.

Much to her own dismay, he seemed to have let his guard down. He squeaked out her old name and Munin found herself biting her tongue to stop herself from angrily correcting him. "You need to be more aware of your surroundings." She told him simply. It was a lesson she'd taught him, and a lesson she'd taught Nova. "You're lucky I wasn't an enemy."

It was her own, special way of saying hello. She expected her old apprentice to know by now she wasn't exactly notorious for being lovey-dovey.

they tell you lies thus keeping you weak

Is this what being vulnerable feels like?

His ears slowly flattened to the back of his head as Raven-- No, curses! Munin scolded him, stating he had to be more aware of his surroundings. She was right, he should have... He hadn't been completely there. What if it had been an invasion? What if he had been the only one who could've warned others and here he was being too lost in thoughts. Mouse dung... He was a poor excuse for a warrior... He was messing things up even by only thinking, he was-- Stop. A deep breath was taken in, blinking his amber hues twice before giving a hesitant smile. "I-I'm sorry." he sputtered quietly, looking like a kit that got a scolding as he peered down to the ground. So much had happened that she knew not of...

How was she doing anyway? The life of a loner, how did that work for her? Was it easier? Did she feel more free, more at ease with who she was? She had gone so far to abandon the name Ravenfeather... Did that help? Slowly settling himself down to sit, he finally gave her a glance. She seemed the same as ever. He remembered how spooked he had been by her when he was just a kit. So wide-eyed about the colour of her eyes, and that of her brother's. By now, he had grown used to it, however.

"I... I w-was lucky, yes. I'm sorry. I should've been more careful. Looked better. Been aware of my surroundings. I failed you in your teachings to me...! " he near wailed out, eyes wide before he bushed out his fur a bit. CONTROL yourself, Bramblefrost, for Stars sake!

Swallowing once, he finally cleared his throat. " How... How have you been...? " Wait, he wasn't allowed to make small talk... She had been a deserter... But she was still his old mentor. He couldn't just ignore all that. And she never meant any harm to ThunderClan, would she?
