The Harsh Leaf Bare...
leaf-bare has hit the forest exceptionally hard this winter. prey has been driven into hibernation and food is scarce. thunderclan and windclan suffer the most; their bones seem to poke through their fur and what little energy they have is spent in search for food. despite it all, riverclan seems to fare the best. there are some places on the river that hasn't frozen over, and the fish that remain are slow and sluggish in the frigid waters. riverclan remains deceptively strong, rivalled only by shadowclan who have managed to scavenge scraps from the carrion place.
