Hi! I’m Otterpaw, with my fourth article. (I’m pretty sure.) Anywho, by the title I’m going to talk about Crowfeather, and who he loves more. Let’s start off with Crowfeather’s first crush… Feathertail.


In this ship, Crowfeather (Crowpaw at the time) met Feathertail when they were on the journey to see Midnight. Crowpaw is very snappy and has a sharp tongue. Feathertail is the only one that can calm him down… hmm…

Anyways, when Feathertail dies, Crowpaw and Feathertail’s brother, Stormfur mourns Feathertail together. In the book, Dawn, Crowpaw almost dies, and when Squirrelpaw and Brambleclaw asks him what he is doing, he replies with, “I’m not frightened of joining StarClan! The forest is dying anyway. At least in StarClan, Feathertail will be waiting for me!”

Crowpaw really loved Feathertail. And when Tallstar gives him his warrior name, he requests the name Crowfeather, after Feathertail. By my evidence, you might think that I’m a CrowXFeather shipper, but no. First off, I sort of think Feathertail is too old for Crowfeather, and Feathertail was more of a high school crush. I’m just putting down what happened from the book here, but I don’t ship Crowfeather and Feathertail.

Alright! Let’s move on to Crowfeather’s next mate… Leafpool!


This one… oh I really like this ship! It’s about Leafpaw, medicine cat apprentice of ThunderClan and Crowfeather, warrior of WindClan! First off, Leafpool is breaking the rules here, which I love. Crowfeather confesses his love to Leafpool when he saves Leafpool from falling off the tall ledge of ThunderClan’s camp. Leafpool is in shock, but is relieved that he loves her.

Let’s go on, now. It’s about when Crowfeather plans to run away from the Clans with Leafpool, so they can be together. Leafpool agrees, but later on finds out that her heart is with ThunderClan, and being a medicine cat. In Sunset, Crowfeather breaks up the relationship.

Leafpool has Crowfeather’s kits later on; Hollykit, Lionkit, and Jaykit. I feel like if Leafpool wasn’t a medicine cat, this could have worked out. Crowfeather really loved Leafpool, and this is one of my favorite ships.

Alright! Now, let’s go on with Crowfeather’s last mate… ugh… Nightcloud.


In The Sight, Crowfeather has a mate in WindClan, Nightcloud, and a son, Breezepaw. There’s nothing much about this ship, and the cats just had a son, Breezepelt who is terrible. Crowfeather probably just took Nightcloud as a mate just to prove that he’s loyal to WindClan.

In my opinion, Crowfeather loves Leafpool and her kits more than Nightcloud, Feathertail, and Breezepelt. He did love Feathertail, but that faded away. In The Last Hope, when Breezepelt is about to kill Lionblaze (his half brother,) Crowfeather stops him by attacking him. Crowfeather says that Nightcloud encouraged him to hate Crowfeather, which makes me wonder: Does Nightcloud actually love Crowfeather?

Well, that it for my article! I personally think that Crowfeather loves Leafpool more than Feathertail and Nightcloud, but that’s just my opinion! Please no hate!

    Thanks Otterpaw! I really enjoyed your article, & I agreed w/ all you said. I think that deep down, Leafpool & Crowfeather love each other still.

    I kind of don’t hate Nightcloud(please don’t kill me yet) because I kind of understand her point of view. Imagine if you love someone & you have babies w/ them, & come to find out he REALLY doesn’t love you & he’s using you to prove his loyalty.
    No wonder Nightcloud is such a excuse my language, butthole sometimes.

    That’s just what I try to think about. Anywho, great article Otterpaw & I cant wait for many more from you!

    I feel like Crowfeather’s confession of love to Leafpool was a bit strange. I mean, he showed no sign before hat he loved her, and in the end it didn’t work out. I still ship them though 😀

    love lasts forever

    I think Crowfeather only really loved LeafPool cause he thought she filled the void that FeatherTail left in his heart. I believe that he doesn’t have feelings for LeafPool anymore. I don’t think he really loves Nightcloud either. He still loves breezepelt and lion heart,hollyleaf, and jay feather, but he is mad that breezepelt became evil.
    This is my opinion though, everyone is entitled to their own! I do think that Feathertail did love Crowfeather, and it was more than a quick fling. Other than that, I agree for the most part^^

    I agree with ALL of it! Although I hate the CROWXNIGHT ship, I don’t hate Nightcloud or Crowfeather, just HATE the ship. I also get REALLY uncomfortable when it’s a ship with like moons between each other. Ugh. It’s just plain creepy! That’s also the reason I hate the JAYXHALF ship.

    Thank you for writing this! I completely agree!!! Leafpool was perfect, and super gentle. And yes, Feathertail was kind of like a high school crush. Crowfeather wasn’t himself around Feathertail, which is bad.
