    Kate, I was reading the Wiki and when I read about Lilyheart it said that her mentor was her older sister Poppyfrost. Then, when I scrolled down more it said in the Trivia that Although cats do not normally mentor their kin, Lilyheart’s mentor was her older sister, Poppyfrost. So I was wondering why did you change that where their kin could mentor them?

    • September 17, 2016 at 4:28 pm

      Then Poppyfrost did have an apprentice, Jayie!

        I believe you’re referring to a conversation we had about my fanfic ‘verse. In which case, Lilyheart was her apprentice in the canon ‘verse, and in my ‘verse she was Bramblestar’s apprentice, so Poppyfrost didn’t have an apprentice.

      That wasn’t a changed rule, it’s just kind of like Fireheart mentoring Cloudtail.
      Sometimes it’s okay, because Bramblestar (I think) probably trusted Poppyfrost to train the apprentice well, and besides, Lilyheart had lost so much by the end of her apprentice hood, I think she needed it.

        Not really I mean Cloudtail was Firestar’s Nephew and not his sibling.
        Yes, that’s true but I wonder what was the reason that Whitewing was Dewnose’s mentor when they are some cats that could of been picked that hasn’t had the chance to be a mentor yet and that also could of trained an apprentice well.

    Hi Kate! I was wondering about how a leader’s nine lives worked. Let’s say a senior warrior (ex. Brackenfur) became leader, but he began dying of old age. would his second life restore his youth? Or would he simply lose all his lives? Also… when IS brackenfur retiring? He seems pretty old.

    • Kate
      September 17, 2016 at 3:24 pm

      Losing a life doesn’t restore youth.
      And, ach. You youngsters think anyone over 9 is old. ;P

    I see people saying that they don’t want another male leader in Shadowclan. My prediction is either Tigerheart dies as a deputy, and Violetpaw completely redeems herself to become leader or Tigerstar becomes leader and Violetpaw will be his deputy and later the leader. c: Personally I love Tigerheart, and although he’s been immature in the past, he’s very loyal to his clan.

    Okay, so I kind of feel a bit stupid about not realizing that Needlepaw would become evil and all.
    I mean, it was hinted at.
    But at the same time….
    Was it?
    She seemed one of those cats that was all “my clan is better so back off.” But she also seemed “the whole idea of a clan is pretty stupid but I’m better than you so just bow down to ShadowClan.”
    When she was training Violetpaw, she didn’t need to actually train her, since they became rogues, and Sleekwhisker even pointed this out. I really want to know what emotions Needltail was feeling about this…
    Loyalty? Friendship? Remorse? Regret??

    • Sunnystripe
      September 18, 2016 at 1:07 pm

      I didn’t know Needlepaw would make such a dumb decision and become evil, but looking back the signs really are there. She didn’t follow the rules, and that combined with her not believing in StarClan made her someone who was always going to be evil. (I liked her during TaQ ๐Ÿ™ )

        Why is someone who doesn’t always follow the rules and not believing in StarClan mean someone is going to be evil? ๐Ÿ˜› You can question the validity of certain rules and not believe in a deity without turning out evil. In fact, that description perfectly fits young Cloudtail, and he turned out just fine. ^^

        • Sunnystripe
          September 18, 2016 at 3:54 pm

          Yes, Cloudtail did turn out fine, but that was only once he started to obey the warrior code. He realized a life of following the code was a much better life for him than being a kittypet. And although he never believed in StarClan, he was still able to be a good warrior by following the code StarClan helped create.

          To me, StarClan and the warrior code are very much related, at least for the former ShadowClan apprentices. StarClan and the warrior code are the two most important things that separate clan cats from rogues like Darktail. Without those two things, Needlepaw and the other apprentices found they had little connection to the other clan cats or reason to stay in ShadowClan. Unlike Cloudtail, who still had one of the two conditions, the apprentices were ready to become rogues, cats that fight for power with very little honor and have no ancestors to guide them.

            Yeah, but people shouldn’t just blindly trust the rules either. He was foolish in that he broke the rules without thinking first of what the consequences would, but not all of the Clans’ rules are perfect, and there’s nothing wrong with questioning rules.

            They became rogues, not because of just questioning the rules in general, but because of a disregard for the lives of those that the warrior code protects. It wasn’t just disrespecting authority, it was feeding themselves before the weak, old, and young of their Clan, being willing to let cats fight and kill over food and power. It wasn’t not believing in StarClan or questioning a few rules, it was a lack of honor, which, following the warrior code is not the only honorable way to live. And if cats need to be told by their ancestors to be good to each other and to follow the rules, I would highly question the morality of that cat, if they need to be told to not hurt others like that. StarClan helps the Clans a lot, and it’s comforting for them to know where their Clanmates go after they die, but these cats wouldn’t just be heartless savages without StarClan around to keep them in check. ๐Ÿ˜›

      I really don’t like this ship. Seriously, it’s bad enough most warriors are related to Firestar at this point. the last thing we need is for Firestar’s kin to already be breeding amongst themselves. And I know the Clans are already interbred, however it shouldn’t happen as fast as it had, especially with the amount of kittypets and longer welcomed into ThunderClan. And it doesn’t help when most of the younger warriors in ThunderClan are killed off for no reason.

          September 20, 2016 at 4:21 am

          I am actually glad that Ivypool is getting a mate and I don’t really care who her mate is to be honest. She just needs someone to love her when she gets off that straight and narrow path every once in awhile. She also deserves to be happy with whoever she ends up with which Kate and the other writers will put her with who ever they think is best for her to be with. Even though they like to hear from all their fans about it.

          If you have noticed alot of the cats in all the clans are kin they are either cousins, uncles, nephews, nieces, or what not, but they still end up mates. Sometimes that is how it is in real life even which is every weird, but for animals its actually very common and a lot of people don’t really take notice in it.

          I do agree with you about Ivypool and Mouswhisker might of been a couple that would of worked. I mean I think whoever Ivypool ends up with will work her personality and everything about her will mash with alot of tom’s personalities. Maybe Kate just seen something special between Fernsong and Ivypool that the fans haven’t yet seen yet. As for her and Foxleap on the wiki under his Trivia it had said that Kate had said on her blog that she thought Foxleap and Ivypool might of been a couple that would of worked out, BUT it said that Vicky later confirmed that Ivypool and Foxleap will not be mates.

          Kate, That has actually made a question pop in my mind. I was wondering why that was that Foxleap and Ivypool wasn’t mates?

            Well… Foxleap was Ivypool’s uncle, so they still would have been related (and more closely related than Fernsong and Ivypool are). Foxleap seemed to be flirting with Dovewing at one point too, until I guess they realized the uncle thing….or just had other plans for Dove.

      Honestly, (and I know this is a bit strange) I kind of expected Needle to get pregnant while still an apprentice (I thought this when I read the Apprentice’s Quest). Biologically it is possible, and I thought she was pretty secretively flirtatious in the first book, and more obvious in the second. And Needle is so into living a “dangerous” lifestyle and one that doesn’t follow the rules, I’d almost expect her to take him as a mate early. It might be interesting to introduce the problems of teen pregnancy… we got a hint of addiction with Rocky in Mothflight’s Vision being addicted to catnip. It would be interesting to see a Clan cat struggle with having kits earlier than is acceptable or easy. But I’m guessing that wouldn’t work for the books?
