Possible Mates for Ivypool; by Hazeltuft

Hazeltuft enters the pool of speculation to ponder over suitable mates for Ivypool.

ivypool_by_xicyvaporx-d4kkchiHello, BlogClan! We’re finally onto the sixth and hopefully not the last arc of the Warriors series! I’m sure this question was popping in everyone’s minds way before the first book came out, and now that it finally did, I think we can speculate the possible mates that Ivypool will have.

Spoiler warning – do not proceed if you have not read Bramblestar’s Storm or The Apprentice’s Quest.

I would like to start off with that both Katy and Vicky think Ivypool will most certainly get a mate. She was supposed to have one after the events of The Last Hope, but her mate never appears in Bramblestar’s Storm. That being said, here is my first choice. (No particular order)

1, Stormcloud:

Stormcloud is a ThunderClan warrior, being a former kittypet named Frankie. He decided to join ThunderClan after the events of the flood, and Bramblestar renamed him Stormpaw, giving him Squirrelflight as his mentor. From as far as I can tell, Stormcloud and Ivypool had no personal or specific interactions with each other during this book. The thing about Stormcloud is that it was hinted that he may like Cherryfall, and she may have played a role in terms of him staying with the clan forever. Although there’s that, there is no guarantee that Stormcloud and Cherryfall will happen. I just thought this would be a possible sensible choice.

2, Fernsong:

Fernsong is Lionblaze’s son, only just recently made a warrior in The Apprentice’s Quest. He did not formally appear in the first book, but Kate has said he will in Thunder and Shadow. It was also revealed that Kate wants him in the plot and has secret plans for him. I even asked her about Ivypool in terms with who her mate will be, and she replied hopefully it will be one of the newer characters. I instantly thought of Fernsong. I’ve actually had this Fernsong x Ivypool ship in mind for a long time, and for some reason I think it would be cute and romantic if they ever got together.

3, Dewnose:

Dewnose is Cloudtail’s son born from a second litter. He appeared in Bramblestar’s Storm as an apprentice, and became a warrior sometime before The Apprentice’s Quest. From what I’ve seen, Dewnose is a kind and sympathetic cat who of course looks our for his clanmates. I imagine some sort of apprentice having a crush on a warrior, Dewnose mooning over Ivypool. Of course this has never happened, but it seems like an adorable idea for Dewnose to have a secret crush on one of the fiercest and bravest she-cats in the clan.

4, Bumblestripe:

Bumblestripe is the son of Graystripe and Millie, born from a second litter, much like Dewnose. Of course we all know Bumblestripe. Sweet, sensitive, caring, all that shiny stuff. You can imagine how much it hurt for us fans when he and Dovewing broke up. As you can see, he could be a more than perfect mate for any she-cat. Even Blossomfall promised Rosepetal that she would put in a good word for her. I would hate for Bumblestripe to end up alone, and the idea of a heartbroken Bumblestripe being comforted by Ivypool under the moonlight is just too tempting not to mention. This wouldn’t be the first time this has happened, either. Berrynose took a mate and had kits with Poppyfrost after his former mate, Honeyfern, had died. I imagine Bumblestripe doing the same thing, moving from one sister to the next, and Ivypool finds herself unintentionally falling in love with him. Dovewing probably would be a tiny bit jealous, and I can see her and Ivypool having a falling put over Bumblestripe. Sort of like the ‘you lost your chance, he’s mine now’ cliché.

Okay, I’m getting off track. The point is, I can see each and every one of these ThunderClan toms worthy of being Ivypool’s mate material. And just think: Ivypool’s mate doesn’t have to come from ThunderClan. Could he be one of the vicious rogues that track Alderpaw back to the clans? Could be a cross-clan forbidden relationship, like her sister and Tigerheart (although I highly doubt this, Ivypool would put her clan above anything) What do you guys think? Thunder and Shadow will be coming out later this year, so cross your paws!

  • I’m really hoping Fern x Ivy will happen. Kick-tail, brave, hard-working she-cat with the kind, sensitive, sweet tom. Who wouldn’t ship it? C: Also, I’m hoping Stormcloud and Cherryfall, Bumblestripe and Rosepetal, and Dewnose and Sparkpaw (Ik, weird, but I think maybe it could happen after he gets over his unrequited crush on Lilyheart >;3) will happen. Although, I did ship Bumblestripe x Ivypool once.

  • BUMBLESTRIPE NEEDS A MATE!!! I personally like the idea of BumleXIvy, as well as FernXIvy.

  • I love the idea of BumbleXIvy but I ship DoveXBumble more. I’m hoping for IvyXFern. Nice article!

  • IvyPool is daughter of Whitewing daughter of CloudTail and BrightHeart and DewNose is son of CloudTail and BrightHeart.So DewNose is IvyPools uncel.That means if IvyPool and DewNose are mates it will be incest.

  • wait, my logic here might be wrong but isn’t Dewnose Ivypool’s uncle? I mean he is Whitewing’s brother (I think). I’m not sure if being in a “second litter” counts as being a brother/sister put idk I think im wrong :P.

    • Yes, it still counts as being a brother/sister. 😛 It has nothing to do with when you’re born, just who your parents are. And Dustpelt is Ferncloud’s uncle, but they’re still mates. Besides, the Clans are small groups with rules against breeding outside of the group, that have been around for several generations – every cat’s gotta be related at this point. 😛

  • This is a reply to Jayfrost. There is no reply button on your comment. 🙁
    Anyway, Blossomfall’s father is Graystripe, whose mother is Willowpelt, whose daughter is Sorreltail, whose daughter is Poppyfrost, whose son is Molewhisker. On top of that Willowpelt is related to Patchpelt (obviously) but she is also related to Whitestorm. Whitestorm’s mother is Snowfur, who is the daughter of Moonflower, who is the daughter of Daisytoe, who is the sister of Flashnose, who is the mother of Swiftbreeze, Willowpelt’s mother. *mic drop*

  • Uh, don’t get me wrong, Dewnose×Ivypool would be adorable, but that is Cloudtail’s granddaughter x Cloudtail’s son, which makes them niece x uncle which is kinda weird… I know a lot of mates in the books are related, but not that close.

    • Willowpelt and Patchpelt are brother and sister, and they had Graystripe. Bramblestar and Squirrel flight are cousins.

        • Squirrelflight’s mother is Sandstorm, whose father is Redtail, whose sister is Leopardfoot, whose son is Tigerstar, whose son is Bramblestar.

      • Eww! But I thought Leopardfoot was Patchpelt’s sister? Like in Bluestar’s Prophecy, Leopardkit and Patchkit were in the nursery with Bluekit and Snowkit.

        • She is. Willowpelt, Redtail, and Spottedleaf are their siblings from a later litter. I think the Erins forgot about that when they made them mates.

  • I always thought Stormcloud and Ivypool would have adorable kits later on in the series. And I too, hope the warriors will not end!!!!

    • I honestly think Stormcloud should be with Cherryfall. In Bramblestar’s Storm, they seemed a bit close. I think Ivypool and Bumblestripe would be a cute couple though! 😉

      • I’m still team Bumble x Dove all the way. It would break my heart if he took Ivypool for a mate instead, because I feel like it would sort of end the chances of Dove x Bumble. I think Dovewing will eventually come to her senses and see that the perfect mate for her is right in front of her face, not on the other side of the border. But that’s just my opinion.

        • It’s not about who’s best for her, it’s about who she loves and wants to be with. I do ship Bumble/Dove, but it seems like she doesn’t feel for him the way she does for Tigerheart. We’ll see, though.

  • the drama that will come with IvyxBumble……. it’ll be so cute! and i cant imagine dovewing’s reaction!

    • Oimigoish you think like I do! IvyxBumble is the only relationship I would ever consider (except for IvyxHawk) for Ivypool. Bumblestripe is a loyal, kind, friendly tom, who would help calm her fierce side, and Ivypool would help him become a bit more… er….. interesting, lets say. Anyways, cheers for you for shipping IvyxBumble. 🙂 <3
