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……………….

  • My problem with her is how she kept talking about how much she loved Firestar like right in front of his family. I don’t hate her but I don’t like her. She just irritated me at times

  • Spottedleaf isn’t a Mary Sue she’s kinda though she’s not a stalker she’s not bad at all listen she loves every cat there in her clan she wouldnt kill or stalk she sacrificed herself for sandstorm spottedleaf didn’t care about firestar careless mind on spottedleaf she loved firestar but she didn’t care if firestar loved her back sandstorm and spottedleaf aren’t frenimes or enemies there friends 🙂

  • I’m just saying, I’ve reread the first arc a few times and there was NO buildup to them liking each other at all. Firepaw was a young cat who was infatuated with Spottedleaf and Spottedleaf shouldn’t have encouraged that. He liked her because she was pretty and kind and smelled nice. She probably only liked him because he was “the chosen one”.

    • I would like to note: That these cats were all completely oblivious except for Bluestar and had no idea Firestar was the chosen one. It was obvious to us (because we have background knowledge mwa ha ha ha!), but NO ONE ELSE knew. So Spottedleaf didn’t know either.

      Also, why can’t anyone support Firestar’s first love?!

      (No hate to anti SpottedxFire shippers. You are entitled to your opinion!!)

      (Love you all, peace <3)

  • I agree, why in the name of Amelia Airheart do people HATE spottedleaf. She is an amazing character. She is kind, loving, wise, understanding, and AMAZING! Some people just got their brains mixed up ………

  • Ahem…

    WHY ARE MY FELLOW SPOTTEDLEAF LOVERS HIDING?!?!?!

    We must band together to prove that our beloved heart-broken friend is NOT A STALKER and an incredible kind and witty cat!!

    TEAM SPOTTEDLEAF!!!!! ASSEMBLE!!!

    No, but honestly, Spottedleaf’s awesome. That’s coming from the person who was first introduced to her in like the third book (introduced through summer camp I think yaaay!), saw a cat meeting Fireheart in his dreams, was confused, thought: Ooooh, his ex girlfriend! (didn’t know she was a med cat yet lol), and was like, awww how sweet of her for visiting her love even after she died!!!

    I WAS LIKE SIX!!!! If a SIX YEAR OLD isn’t creeped out by Spottedleaf’s supposed “stalking”, why should NON-LITTLE KIDS?!?!

    (Note: No hate to anyone whatsoever! Everyone is entitled to their opinions! Have a nice day, love and peace! <3)
