Okay, Shadowpaw here! This article contains spoilers from the books Twilight and up. This is my first article, so I wanted to make it something easy! Hope you enjoy! 🙂
So, first of all, Crowfeather is one of my favorite cats, but one thing that bugs me is all the she-cats he’s loved. Nightcloud, Feathertail and Leafpool. Feathertail’s death was sort of his fault, so he took it pretty harshly. And then he ran off with Leafpool. When he came back, he took Nightcloud as his mate, not particularly because he actually loved her (I think), but because he wanted to show that his loyalties were now to WindClan.
The thing I’m uncertain of is….does he actually still love Leafpool? Does he love Nightcloud?? Now, he defended Nightcloud at the Gathering when Hollyleaf reveals the secret of her true parents (Crowfeather and Leafpool). Then he also defended her when Jayfeather, Hollyleaf and Lionblaze went to WindClan to meet their true father. But that is still pretty shaky.
Crowfeather might have defended Nightcloud because he wanted to show that Nightcloud was his only love, since Nightcloud was pretty hostile when it came to him loving Leafpool, and since he was at the Gathering, and Onestar and his Clanmates were there. Also because he was probably still shocked that Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather were his kits as well. But still, now I’m starting to wonder if he got over Leafpool and loved Nightcloud instead.
I do know Leafpool still loves him. She always will, because that’s just how it is. I feel like I remember somewhere in Power of Three, or the end of the New Prophecy Leafpool looks and sees Crowfeather and Nightcloud together, and feels jealous. Also, in Leafpool’s Wish, she still misses her former mate. So, even after writing this article, I really don’t know what I believe. So could you BlogClan Clanmates tell your opinions in the comments below!! Also, I may not be able to answer the comments daily because I’m on school.
But still, feel free to chat away on here! Thank you for reading, and I hoped you enjoyed my first article!! Shadowpaw….signing out!!!!! P.S. The art is not mine.
