The Loveless Clan

Hello all, and welcome to the monstrosity that is my largest FanFiction project. It's over a year old now and finally, I've nearly completed it. It's undergoing a few renovations at the moment, and if any of you feel like pointing out a mistake that I've missed or haven't fixed yet, go ahead!

It began in the Clans. That was the thing that all elders could agree upon.

Namely, it began in a Clan. They were the scapegoats of the others- they were weak, small, and could never win a battle. But their leader had an idea. The seed planted itself in the cat's troubled mind, and without permission it began to grow and grow and grow until it was all the leader could think of. It consumed every waking thought and every dreaming hour.

Her name was Brightstar, and at first, her idea was more terrible than anyone could behold.

She told her Clan, We must drive the very existence of love from our ranks. No more will its loathsome hold weaken us.

At first it seemed their beloved leader had gone mad. But the more the thought about it, the more reasonable it became. Love made mousehearts of them all. Without it they would be strong; they would feel no pain. The perfect warriors. Love was a smog hanging thick and caustic above their heads, and they were fools, stumbling blind. Brightstar only wanted to lead them to the light.

They proposed the idea at the next Gathering. The other Clans scoffed.

Impossible, they called it. Folly. They ridiculed Brightstar and her Clan, her preposterous plan that was doomed to fail before it could even begin. They laughed, and went on their way without even considering trialling Brightstar's idea. Her Clan was shocked. It was a brilliant idea, and they had paid it no more than a moment or two heed.

The Clan hardened their hearts, and left their old territory to find a better, richer place, which they could claim all for themselves. After much travel and cold, hungry nights, the perfect place was found and they created their Utopian Clan. Love was expelled from their midst; they labelled it as an anomaly, a disease. They forbade it. The penalty was death. She-kits were raised on one side of the camp, toms another. Contact between the two sexes was forbidden a lot of things were. Until they were matched with their pair, neither side had anything to do with each other. They were renamed; they discarded their old, soft name and replaced it with PureClan.

They found it fitting, and to match, they fashioned themselves new lore and laws.

The warrior code was extended.

A warrior that falls in love faces the punishment of exile or death.

A warrior that displays signs of the disease faces the punishment of exile or death.

Sympathizers of love face the punishment of exile or death.

Resistors of the warrior code and all that it stands for face the punishment of exile or death.

For seasons the dynasty of the loveless Clan continued. Love was scarce, but all the efforts to eliminate it had failed. The most tenacious of diseases, they found, have a way of resisting the cure.
