Defending Spottedleaf (Yeah, I’m going there) by Icestorm

1c2c316052dc9f77476832163715b2e9Icestorm risks a Blogstorm

Hey guys, Icestorm here with my fourth article! If you saw the title, most of you are rolling your eyes. Before I say anything: I am NOT on any side. I don’t care whether FirexSand happened or FirexSpotted happened. I also want to make something else clear: I don’t like Spottedleaf, but I don’t hate her. I just sorta feel neutral with her. All I’m here to do is defend the people that love Spottedleaf. Yes, I know you guys are out there. 😉 Also, please remember that this is just opinions, and I’m glad if you feel differently. Feel free to go against everything I say in the comments. I don’t mind. XD

Let’s now go over some reasons that the Spottedleaf haters hate this she-cat so much.

-She is a stalker and invaded Firestar’s life/was obsessed with him/would not let him go
-She’s a Mary-Sue (a perfect character with no flaws)
– Why Fire and her are in love when they barely knew each other/they shouldn’t be together

And finally, we will go over who is REALLY hating her. 😉 😉 *wink wink*

She is a stalker and invaded Firestar’s life/was obsessed with him/would not let him go)

I can totally see that opinion. Elders of the warriors fandom, or older readers, might understand what it feels like to have a soul mate. Spottedleaf felt like Firestar was her soul mate. You can’t just forget about someone like that and move on. You feel like you’re supposed to be with them for the rest of your life. So the stalker part of it…seriously? You call her a stalker? What about Yellowfang? Yellowfang was always coming up. Oh wait, Yellowfang is an angel that everyone loves, so nobody minds if she does the same thing to Firestar’s kin. My bad. I just see Spottedleaf as a guardian angel or something like that. She didn’t STALK Firestar’s kin; she watched over them. Haven’t you guys had any loved ones that passed away? Don’t you feel like they’re watching over you? It seems ridiculous to think that they’re “stalking” you, right? They’re there because they were very close to you. That’s how Spottedleaf is. She’s watching over the cat that felt like her soul mate. It makes me laugh when people say she’s “stalking” him.

She’s a Mary-Sue (a perfect character with no flaws))

What do YOU know? Everyone says that Spottedleaf had no flaws and she was sooo perfect. Think: how much do we actually know her? Yeah, Firepaw knew her for like, 100 pages. So did you! We don’t know that much about Spottedleaf, so what right do we have to say she has no flaws? It’s like meeting a person for an hour and spending time with them, and they seem like a perfect person. Seriously?! That’s ridiculous! You guys barely knew Spottedleaf! We didn’t even see her perspective!! You have no idea what she was like before Into the Wild, and that will show in the tenth novella, “Spottedleaf’s Heart”, which I can’t wait for! *fangirl screams*. Sorry, back to the rant. Where was I? Oh yeah. YOU GUYS DON’T KNOW HER ENOUGH TO CALL HER A PERFECT CHARACTER!

Why Fire and her are in love when they barely knew each other/they shouldn’t be together)

I guess we have a lot of people who don’t believe in love at first sight. And I get that. But it’s kinda like the soul mate thing. In the short time they knew each other, they knew enough to love each other. All of you FirexSand people: a ton of it is actually only because Sandstorm is awesome and Spottedleaf butts in on their relationship. Have any of you actually considered what FirexSpotted would have been like? Anyway, even if Sandstorm never came along, Spottedleaf was a wise and thoughtful character, and she would never have broken the warrior code. She knew that Sandstorm was right for Firestar. That’s why it pisses me off that the erins killed her off so Firestar wouldn’t have to choose in Starclan. He didn’t have to! All three of them, Fire, Spotted, and Sand understood what was right. They all knew that FirexSand won. WHY KILL HER?!

The very last thing I wanted to talk about is who REALLY hates her. A ton of people get pulled into what’s popular, and I experienced that. I was neutral with Spottedleaf. Then, when I saw all the hate for her, I got pulled into hating her. Then I realized: am I really changing my opinion because most others’ are different? Think: do you truly hate Spottedleaf? Or are you getting pulled into the flow of what most people think. Also, a lot of Spottedleaf lovers are hiding. They pretend to hate her…to avoid being hated. COME ON SPOTTEDLEAF LOVERS! COME OUT OF YOUR SHELLS! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING AN OPINION THAT GOES AGAINST EVERYONE. And most Spottedleaf haters…were just pulled into hating her.

Why do I feel weird now………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….wow that was 837 words. Geez I just wrote a small essay. Why can’t school essays be warriors related? They’d be so much easier……………….

    I really like Spottedleaf and am super angry she’s truly dead. And thanks for the ending, I LOVE Millie and Crowfeather and Squirrelflight, I like Dovewing and Leopardstar, and I hate Hawkfrost, Breezepelt and Thistleclaw, and will never let other’s opinions of them change mine.

    I clicked on this article because I don’t know anyone who could possibly hate her and I couldn’t think of any reason someone would have to defend her. I highly agree with all the things you said about her and really like how you changed the whole “stalker” perspective to guardian angle (that’s how I always saw her) I cried when she died and I mean like I really REALLY cried and what’s worse is that she had to die 2 TIMES!!!!!!!
    waaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!

    I am a proud Spottedleaf lover 4 life! NO SHAME!

    I am just wondering why the **** people hate Spottedleaf so much that some people feel they have to replace the “leaf” part in her name with something horrible or dirty (believe me why I say this has happened) I don’t think at all that she was stalking Firestar, she was helping him with things. And in top of that, she saves Sandstorm so that he would be happy. She loved Firestar, but knew that she couldn’t have him(she knew this from the first time she felt that she loved him) because she was a medicine cat and then she was dead and now she is too dead to be seen in the series again. Also why the heck do people think that Yellowfang was an angel, if you classify THAT as an angel, Spottedleaf is also an angel. Why do you guys love Yellowfang more!! I like Yellowfang too but not as much as Spottedleaf, also has Spottedleaf’s Heart been known about for a while, because I just found out about it yesterday.

      What?! People replace her name with bad words! That’s so mean!!! She’s not my most fav but yet I don’t hate her. And a guardian angel! I would feel so loved and happy and protected with someone like her to watch over me.

    The Firestar ships have never been a big part of me warriors-wise. I do not ship FireXCinder, but the other two are ones that I just go along with. FireXSand is cannon. Get over it.
    Although I’m nuetral, I defend Spottedleaf. If she was a mary-sue, she would have powers, and would have won Firestar AND would never have died. Seriously.
    Spottedleaf’s Heart, as much of a joke that it was, showed that Spottedleaf is not perfect. She has emotional conflict too!

    I don’t hate Spottedleaf but don’t love her either. I loved your article, Icestorm! I don’t think she’s a Mary-sue either and I understand that she was only watching over Firestar. This is just me for actual people but I tend to think that when the girl is older than the guy, or even taller, idk but it just seems weird. But anyway ya! Spottedleaf was a great medicine cat and followed the warrior code. She is not my favorite medicine cat but she’s a good one. My favs however are Cinderpelt, Mothwing, and Jayfeather (minus Alderpaw and Puddlepaw for now since I haven’t read the new series). I also may like more but I also haven’t read many super editions so I can’t say yet. Those three are my top favs for now (and I always will like them. I just may find more later I like too).

    And please don’t hate me but I ship Firestar and Cinderpelt. Mostly because I LOVE Cinderpelt! She was so adorable as an apprentice and was a great medicine cat and good friend and supporter to Firestar. But as much as she loved Firestar, she let Sandstorm become his mate and became the best medicine cat she could be. She was also such a good mentor to Leafpool.
    But don’t worry, I like Firestar and Sandstorm too! And Firestar and Spottedleaf……….well sometimes I see her as a stalker, but then again I like how she watches over him all the time. Ok I like them together. It’s only the age difference that bugs me, haha!

    The age different as in the girl being older than the guy. Yes Brackenfur and Sorreltail are mates but have an age different as big as FirexSpotted but the guy’s older which is why I’m fine with them. Sorry that’s just me though!

      There’s literally nothing better or worse about the woman being older than the man in a relationship than the man being older than the woman. It’s no different at all.

    Interesting. I agree. Again, I have been enlightened by an article. For many warriors characters, I never really think about character and opinions. I literally just read the book then go over it a little after word. I never ever thought about Mary/Gary stu’s and stalker-e stuff. I didn’t even know what a Mary stu was before I joined the warriors fandom. Or BlogClan I guess. I never think about character either. Though I do do ships. Ships are fun, but I only really do canon ships for some reason. I’m not one of those SpottedxFire shippers or TigerxLeapord (yay bad spelling) or… um… I can’t think of anything else. Anyway, you should get the point. I liked he article
