The Twig’s Parents… Is It True, by Rainpaw

Rainpaw (though maybe not paw anymore, we are after all three decades later) dons their reporter’s cap to discuss… the Twigparents.

*Reporter Music*

“(M) Hello, and welcome to Warriors: Secrets Revealed.”

“(G) And the news today: Crowfeather admits his kinship to Lion, Jay and Holly, Hawkwing brings his clan on a seemingly faithless journey, and ShadowClan is close to destroyed.”

“(M) On the other hand, Rainpaw has been doing some research on Hawkwing’s Journey. Here you are, Rainpaw.”

Thanks, Mary & Gary! So, those of you who have read Hawkwing’s Journey must have wondered this… Pebbleshine and Hawkwing… And Twigpaw and Violetpaw. The family of guesses. So, is it true? Are Pebbleshine and Hawkwing, Twigpaw and Violetpaw’s parents? I’d like to think so. I mean, the Erins have linked things up before, if I’m not mistaken. Cough cough, the clans and tribe. And probably more, I’m just to mouse-brained to remember. But it just makes sense. I mean, Pebbleshine gets taken from SkyClan, and then not more than a few moons later, two kits(OMG DOES TWIGPAW EVER LOOK LIKE HAWKWING!) are found by Needlepaw and Alderpaw, without a mother. Now, you may be thinking: “But that means Pebbleshine is dead! And that’s too cruel to even think of!” Well, it really doesn’t mean that. Here are a couple of the possibilities:

#1: Pebbleshine actually had THREE kits, but chose to try and find Hawkwing and SkyClan, and knew she could only travel with one kit. She took one kit, and sadly left the two magnificent she-cats we know as Twigpaw and Violetpaw.

Now, this may be venturing a little far, but there are many things to support this theory. Pebbleshine REALLY loves Hawkwing, it’s not just one of those DaisyXSpider things, you know what I mean? And she was loyal to her clan from the bottom of her heart. We all know she would do anything for her clan. We know this by Hawkwing telling us this, and, you know, like the MILLIONS of times it was implied. She would’ve loved all her kits both dearly and fiercely, but known that she had to find her clan. Both sad and happy, I think this theory could be true, or at least not far from the truth.

#2: She had two kits, a grey she-cat and a black and white she-cat. After a couple days she decides to hunt, finding it hard to feed her kits. While she’s out hunting, she is nearly stolen my twolegs, forcing her to run away without her kits.

Okay, this one popped into my head on the fly, so don’t expect to be too impressed. But it technically could have happened. If animal control or whatever found her, I bet they wouldn’t be driving away without any scratches, with a nice, obedient kitty in the back. This is a little far fetched, but… a girl can believe…

Anyways, now some of you are saying: “Yeah yeah, Twigpaw looks like Hawkwing, but Violetpaw doesn’t look anything like either of her parents!” … Just think about this. Pebbleshine is white, with brown speckles on her upper half. Hawkwing is a dark grey. It’s like they decided to take two colors and ended up with Violetpaw. And let’s not forget that (no offense Kate…) the Erins aren’t exactly known for magnificent cat genetics. I mean, a ginger tabby and a pale ginger tabby have kits, they have a ginger tabby, and a brown tabby. And the brown tabby’s genes come from where, exactly? Not to mention, both the parents have green eyes, and here’s our little defiant brown tabby with amber eyes. It’s like World War 1 but with cat genetics. Anyways…. that rant came out of nowhere… hehe….

But that’s pretty much it. There is a great chance that Hawkwing and Pebbleshine are the parents of Twigpaw and Violetpaw. I guess we’ll have to find that out in the next book. But hey! That’s just a theory. A book theory!

    Great article and detailed analysis! There are some unusual links.

    Great article! Nice Moonkitti touch at the end 🙂 I completely believe that Hawkwing and Pebbleshine are Twigpaw and Violetpaw’s parents and one way or another Pebbleshine had her kits and was forced to leave them alone, even if it was just for a few minutes while she struggled to hunt. I don’t think she would take a kit with her and leave the other two alone unless that one kit was seriously sick and needed a Twoleg vet that she found when she was captured by Twolegs or immediate herbs or something, but it’s a possibility 🙂

    It’s worth noting that Violetpaw is black and white, and Pebbleshine does have white fur. Also, Pebbleshine’s mother, Tinycloud, is white, as well as Hawkwing’s sister, Cloudmist. There’s probably black somewhere in the family tree, but I don’t have time 😛

    Although I really want Darktail to be their father, and their mother to have died (I don’t know, it just seems like too much if Twig and Violet suddenly get a mom who has to choose between them), this is an interesting theory. Also, I might warm up to this theory if I actually read Hawkwing’s Journey XD

    This sounds like a great possible theory Rainpaw!

    Great theory! I had thought before about Pebbleshine giving birth and then having to escape Twolegs. I mean, it makes sense, seeing as how the two kittens were found in a sewage pipe (right?) I also like the Game Theory/Film Theory reference.
