Defending Spottedleaf (Yeah, I’m going there) by Icestorm

Hey guys, Icestorm here with my fourth article! If you saw the title, most of you are rolling your eyes. Before I say anything: I am NOT on any side. I don’t care whether FirexSand happened or FirexSpotted happened. I also want to make something else clear: I don’t like Spottedleaf, but I don’t hate her. I just sorta feel neutral with her. All I’m here to do is defend the people that love Spottedleaf. Yes, I know you guys are out there. 😉 Also, please remember that this is just opinions, and I’m glad if you feel differently. Feel free to go against everything I say in the comments. I don’t mind. XD

Let’s now go over some reasons that the Spottedleaf haters hate this she-cat so much.

-She is a stalker and invaded Firestar’s life/was obsessed with him/would not let him go
-She’s a Mary-Sue (a perfect character with no flaws)
– Why Fire and her are in love when they barely knew each other/they shouldn’t be together

And finally, we will go over who is REALLY hating her. 😉 😉 *wink wink*

She is a stalker and invaded Firestar’s life/was obsessed with him/would not let him go)

I can totally see that opinion. Elders of the warriors fandom, or older readers, might understand what it feels like to have a soul mate. Spottedleaf felt like Firestar was her soul mate. You can’t just forget about someone like that and move on. You feel like you’re supposed to be with them for the rest of your life. So the stalker part of it…seriously? You call her a stalker? What about Yellowfang? Yellowfang was always coming up. Oh wait, Yellowfang is an angel that everyone loves, so nobody minds if she does the same thing to Firestar’s kin. My bad. I just see Spottedleaf as a guardian angel or something like that. She didn’t STALK Firestar’s kin; she watched over them. Haven’t you guys had any loved ones that passed away? Don’t you feel like they’re watching over you? It seems ridiculous to think that they’re “stalking” you, right? They’re there because they were very close to you. That’s how Spottedleaf is. She’s watching over the cat that felt like her soul mate. It makes me laugh when people say she’s “stalking” him.

She’s a Mary-Sue (a perfect character with no flaws))

What do YOU know? Everyone says that Spottedleaf had no flaws and she was sooo perfect. Think: how much do we actually know her? Yeah, Firepaw knew her for like, 100 pages. So did you! We don’t know that much about Spottedleaf, so what right do we have to say she has no flaws? It’s like meeting a person for an hour and spending time with them, and they seem like a perfect person. Seriously?! That’s ridiculous! You guys barely knew Spottedleaf! We didn’t even see her perspective!! You have no idea what she was like before Into the Wild, and that will show in the tenth novella, “Spottedleaf’s Heart”, which I can’t wait for! *fangirl screams*. Sorry, back to the rant. Where was I? Oh yeah. YOU GUYS DON’T KNOW HER ENOUGH TO CALL HER A PERFECT CHARACTER!

Why Fire and her are in love when they barely knew each other/they shouldn’t be together)

I guess we have a lot of people who don’t believe in love at first sight. And I get that. But it’s kinda like the soul mate thing. In the short time they knew each other, they knew enough to love each other. All of you FirexSand people: a ton of it is actually only because Sandstorm is awesome and Spottedleaf butts in on their relationship. Have any of you actually considered what FirexSpotted would have been like? Anyway, even if Sandstorm never came along, Spottedleaf was a wise and thoughtful character, and she would never have broken the warrior code. She knew that Sandstorm was right for Firestar. That’s why it pisses me off that the erins killed her off so Firestar wouldn’t have to choose in Starclan. He didn’t have to! All three of them, Fire, Spotted, and Sand understood what was right. They all knew that FirexSand won. WHY KILL HER?!

The very last thing I wanted to talk about is who REALLY hates her. A ton of people get pulled into what’s popular, and I experienced that. I was neutral with Spottedleaf. Then, when I saw all the hate for her, I got pulled into hating her. Then I realized: am I really changing my opinion because most others’ are different? Think: do you truly hate Spottedleaf? Or are you getting pulled into the flow of what most people think. Also, a lot of Spottedleaf lovers are hiding. They pretend to hate her…to avoid being hated. COME ON SPOTTEDLEAF LOVERS! COME OUT OF YOUR SHELLS! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING AN OPINION THAT GOES AGAINST EVERYONE. And most Spottedleaf haters…were just pulled into hating her.

Why do I feel weird now………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….wow that was 837 words. Geez I just wrote a small essay. Why can’t school essays be warriors related? They’d be so much easier……………….

  • Btw I read all of you guys’ comments and thanks for the feedback!

    Hmm…I only responded to the comments that offered me oreos. NOM NOM 😛

  • Hold on. I think the dislikes have a few flaws. Just my opinion. I believe that Spottedleaf is not a stalker. She loved Firestar, so she chose to speak with him in his dreams. Also, usually a stalker is not known, and Firestar knows and is happy to see her. She also struggled to let him go, yes, but i think if you truly loved someone and knew u could never be with them, then u would also struggle emotionally. Second, Mary-Sue is not completely true. She has her flaws. Her confusion and puzzlement among her emotions. She loves Firestar, knows that she could not be with him, and wants him to be happy. That is one of the worst battles i can see in the Warriors series. she has to defeat her dream and accept her and firestars destinies. Last, I believe that one can truly fall in love quickly. Think of Clear Sky and all the she-cats he instantly loved, then got killed some way or another. Anyways, back to the point. Remember how many moons pass in the first book without being told. Like in the third or so chapter, 2 moons passed between the 2 chapters. So, I believe that much more had happened then than we are shown. So, overall, Spottedleaf is a good cat who simply had to accept her destiny. And she was most at peace in her last moments in Starclan, before she became only a memory.

  • You know whats funny about Spottedleaf? Graypaw says that Spottedleaf is young and pretty and Darkstripe is old. Spottedleaf is older than Darkstripe! : p

  • The “struggle with emotions” thing? It does not make spottedleaf a mary-sue. Everyone has opinions, and are free to share them. For “going with the flow of haters”, I don’t see how they could. Everyone on here makes points and fights for what they think. What, will “spottedstalker police” come and take you away? No. Because there isn’t “spotted police”. Opinions are something that this blog was made for, so share them. Share freely blogClan!
    ThunderClan will never be safe if we are divided within the walls within our own camp- Dovewing
    I hope I’m not starting a Dovewing war with this on a spottedleaf argue page. 😬
    To me spotteds a “meh” no hate, no love. But others might not think that, and that’s fine. No idea how long the “opinion wars” will last, but I’m not in it. I’ll get a lot of hate now…

  • That’s a great article! I think that I kinda like Spottedleaf, because she’s nice and a gifted medicine cat. I think the whole ‘stalking’ business is just showing how much loyalty she has to Firestar.

  • Nice article. I really do not care for Spottedleaf, honestly. Though I’m actually excited for Spottedleaf’s Heart cause it seems like it’s gonna take place before Firestar came to the clans.

  • Why does everyone have to hate her??????? I love Spottedleaf even if some stuff people say is true about her. I’m really excited about Spottedleaf’s Heart too.

  • I love Spottedleaf! She IS NOT a stalker (that was directed to all you Spottedleaf haters!) SPOTTEDLEAF! SPOTTEDLEAF! SPOTTEDLEAF!
