The sky grew dim quickly; in the midst of leaf-bare, days were shorter than usual, an unpleasant truth that only hindered the cats as they tried to increase hunting. Of course, Falconleap's resignation had probably spread all the way around camp by now. The tall leader's tail was lashing as she sat in the midst of camp, her eyes narrowed on the sky. At last, Fallingstar determined that it would be an appropriate time to name the new deputy. There had not been a lot of options whom she could consider trustworthy, but she believed her chosen cat to be suitable for the role.
With a leap to the top of the rock-pile, Fallingstar let out a quiet call, not quite her usual enthusiastic yowl. "Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the Rock Pile for a Clan meeting." Head dipped low and shoulder's hunched, the she-cat's eyes scanned over the camp, so as to make sure that cat she would name was present. Tail curled and uncurled as the leader waited for her Clan to gather within her sight.
"I say these words before StarClan, that the spirits of our warrior ancestors may hear and approve of my choice. The new deputy of StoneClan is Hawkwing," the StoneClan leader meowed coolly. It was an odd thought, she realized, to go from Falconleap to Hawkwing. On top of that, Blackeagle's name came from a bird as well. Vaguely, Fallingstar wondered if there was some kind of curse around bird-centered names, but she dismissed the thought as nothing more than tired musings. Having made her announcement, Fallingstar had nothing more to say. She cast a particular glance at Falconleap from across the clearing before stepping down and returning to her den for the night.
