My Opinions On Warrior Couples; by Fernrustle

Fernrustle throws us a rollercoaster ride of opinions on the most well known of Warriors couples.

Hello guys! Today, I’m going to give my opinion on some of the most famous Warriors couples in the series. I understand that you guys may have different perspectives on the cats I’m talking about, so feel free to share your thoughts!

Okay, the couples I’m going to talk about are:

  • Graystripe and Silverstream
  • Leafpool and Crowfeather
  • Firestar and Sandstorm
  • Bluestar and Oakheart
  • Cloudtail and Brightheart
  • Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight

Ready? Here we go!

Graystripe and Silverstream

I think this couple is really cute together, and I admire their bravery to risk everything – their Clans, their loyalty, their lives – to be with the cat they love the most. Although I kind of disliked it when Graystripe chose to become mates with Millie after Silverstream died. I kind of saw it as betrayal. I mean, does Graystripe love Silverstream, taking Millie as a mate because he admired her? Or did he love Millie more?


Leafpool and Crowfeather

This couple is really nice together. But I’m confused at why Crowfeather started loving Leafpool after Feathertail died? Taking Nightcloud as a mate was understandable after what Crow went through, but he could have avoided this predicament by hiding his feelings for Leafpool and remaining single. Instead, he chose to mate with another cat, even though it was against the code, have kits, cover up his secret by being with another she-cat who he never really loved, and fathered a son who would grow up to pick the evil path. I mean, really!

Firestar and Sandstorm

I love, love, love this couple. Firestar and Sandstorm really made a match, even through their recognizable differences. A lot of people choose to pick Firestar x Spottedleaf over Firestar x Sandstorm, but Spottedleaf “was and always will be a medicine cat” (Firestar’s Quest). I think Firestar did the right thing, though a part of him loved Spottedleaf, too.

Bluestar and Oakheart

In Crookedstar’s Promise and Bluestar’s Prophecy, it was revealed that Bluestar had a secret mate – Oakheart from RiverClan. I kind of love, kind of hate this couple. True, Bluestar and Oakheart disobeyed the Warrior code when they mated, but in the end they decided their loyalty was to their Clan. I think that would have been a big choice to make, but they succeeded.

Cloudtail and Brightheart

I think this couple is one of the sweetest couples in the Warriors series. Cloudtail was able to love Brightheart, one-eye and all. And it was nice that they helped fufill the oldest prophecy
by providing a daughter, Whitewing, who mated and gave birth to Ivypool and Dovewing, two cats who helped save the Clans from the wrath of the Dark Forest. Brightheart proved a fierce mother to the end, loving and protecting Whitewing while Cloudtail managed to be a wonderful father, even without his faith in Starclan.

Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight

I love this couple as much as Firestar and Sandstorm. They certainly changed Thunderclan history – a daughter of Firestar mating with the son of Tigerstar. Squirrelflight
agreed to adopt and mother her sister Leafpool’s kits – Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Hollyleaf – with Bramblestar, two of whom saved the Clans from the Dark Forest. And I thought it was sweet when Bramblestar appointed Squirrelflight as his deputy after he became leader. Even better, it was revealed in Bramblestar’s Storm that Squirrelflight would be giving birth to kits! Alderpaw and Sparkpaw in The Apprentice’s Quest are revealed to be Bramblestar and Squirrelflight’s two surviving children.

So, there’s my opinions on some of the most famous Warrior cat couples! Thanks for reading!

Fan Articles


  • Interesting, but I feel as if I’m the only one that wishes Squirrelflight took Ashfur as a mate instead of Bramblestar. I never really liked Bramblestar…

  • I mostly agree with these. ^^

    But how is Graystripe taking Millie as a mate a betrayal of Silverstream? You’re allowed to fall in love again after your first loved one has died/left you/whatever. It’s not a betrayal. People remarry after their spouse dies often enough in real life, and it isn’t a betrayal, simply that person moving on with their life and finding new love. Silverstream was dead, he couldn’t be with her anymore until he himself was in StarClan, and he still had a life to live. Silverstream even encouraged him to travel with Millie, so clearly she approved. Same with Crowfeather, Feathertail, and Leafpool.

    • Yeah, he wasn’t betraying Silverstream. The only thing I liked about Graystripe and Millie was that it provided a realistic point of view on relationships.

    • I agree that Crowfeather wasn’t betraying Feathertail with his love for Leafpool as we know he didn’t rush straight into it as he personally had doubts about betrayal himself, so he obviously thought it through and it’s better for any animal to move on and live in the future.

    • After reading your guys’ comments, I understand more about why you are supportive of these things. Thank you for stating your opinions!

  • Great idea for an article!

    I also love Cloudtail and Brightheart. I think it was really sweet how he helped her after her accident with the dogs, especially after how hotheaded and arrogant before.

    And I agree. Graystripe/Silverstream was way better than Graystripe/Millie, but maybe that’s because I love *original* things and hate Millie 😛

  • I like your idea for the article Fernrustle! I actually love the couples that never were: Mousefur and Longtail, Icecloud and Lionblaze etc

  • Great article, Fernrustle! I don’t really see Graystripe taking Millie as his mate as a betrayal since Millie helped Graystripe during a difficult part of his life and by this point, he had gotten over (but didn’t forget) his loss of Silverstream.

  • OMG U STUPID MOUSEBRAIN!!!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LeafxCrow! Forbidden couples 4 evr! Now that you’ve got me started, be prepared! I love them sooo much! One reason for it, I didn’t realise just how much he must’ve loved her until my noob friend was all like “He doesn’t deserve Feathertail! He’s so grouchy, and annoying!” It just got me thinking on how kind and patient he was, not only with Feathertail, but with Leafpool, too. And how hard it must’ve been when he realised that he loved Leafpool. I mean, just read this and tell me it doesn’t warm your heart: “I love you Feathertail, and there will never be another cat like you but… she gives me so much. Please forgive me…” Seriously, every time I see this photo im all like “awww!”

    Stop it, Rainpaw, Stop!

  • Taking a new mate after your old one died is moving on, and not betrayal. As a fan of Graystripe, I’d rather have him be happy with Millie than for him to be forever alone and ‘loyal’ to Silverstream.

  • I thought Tigerheart and Dovewing was a pretty cute couple too, even though it didn’t last long, still, it was cute while it lasted.
