Millie: Jerk or Awesome by Swiftbriar


Swiftbriar explores the reasons why Millie-haters… shouldn’t be Millie-haters

Millie haters I am going to claw your ears off. ( Unsheathes claws). Haha. Just kidding I come in peace. ( Sheathes claws). Okay, anyway several reasons why almost everyone hates her.

Second mate of Graystripe- Many ask why did Graystripe take Millie as his mate. But now some people are asking why she accepted. If she hadn’t accepted then, Briarlight, Blossomfall, and Bumblestripe would never have been born. So when Graystripe asks Millie to be his mate, and Millie refuses, this is what I imagine. “Millie I would like to take you as my mate.” “Oh, Graystripe, I can’t. You already had Sliverstream and you have to stay true. I’m sorry Graystripe. I so badly want to be with you, but you had a mate already.” “I understand. If you change your mind, I will wait.” “I know.”
See what would have happened?

Second most common reason:
Loves Briarlight “more”- Okay some people just don’t get this straight. When we all become parents, then we will, but right now, not so much. Millie was really worried about Briarlight when she became paralyzed in her hind-quarters, so of course she was worried about her. Now some people get this all wrong including some of ThunderClan. Now people think that she loved Briarlight more and never noticed Blossomfall, or Bumbblestripe, except when she told them off. And when Ivypool and Blossomfall get stuck in the tunnels and then come back to a very worried Clan, Millie says where had she been, she expected better then that and that Briarlight would give anything to beable to hunt and fight for her Clan and then Whitewing says this and that and Millie says this and that and blah blah blah. Anyway, my point is, she still loved Blossomfall and Bumbblestripe, but because of her worry for Briarlight, and the anxiety and stuff she was wanted her kits to work hard. This is something called tough love. And researchers say that children that grow up with parents like Millie, are going to grow up to be great people. I know what you’re going to say, yes I do, that Millie’s actions led Blossomfall to train in the Dark Forest. But what about now, did she stay true to ThunderClan, yes she did. So don’t complain about this so much.

Okay, I think I’ve talked enough sense into you.

Thanks for reading!!!😝😝😝😝😜😜😜😸😸😻😻😺😺🙃🙃😀😀😀

  • Finally! I’m so glad that someone is willing to stick up for Millie, it’s about time 🙂

  • you made me like millie a bit, as i really didnt like her before. i just hated that she obsesses over briarlight. thanks for changing my view a bit. 🙂

  • Millie’s terrible. She struts in, flashes a smile, becomes Graystripe’s mate, they have kits, they grow, Briarlight’s legs are broken, and she hates her other kits. Even Graystripe found her bad. If Silverstream got a chance to be a mother she’d be a million times better the cat.
    And the Erins confirmed that Graystripe would choose Silverstream in StarClan

    • She didn’t just “strut in, flash a smile” and become his mate. There were three full books dedicated to building up the relationship between her and Graystripe, which is more than I can say for Silverstream, they fell in love and became mates off-screen. I really liked how they developed their relationship and Milie’s personality. She left her twolegs behind for him and helped him find his Clanmates again. I agree that she wasn’t a great mother to Blossomfall and Bumblestripe after Briarlight was injured, but she didn’t hate them, she was just neglectful because she was so focused on Briarlight.

      • Jayfrost that’s a great point! I’m totally with you on that. That’s the reason I always liked GrayXMillie a lot more than GrayXSliver ever since they came into the series. Graystripe and Millie’s relationship was a lot more dedicated to building it in the process of multiple books. (Kinda like Firestar and Sandstorm). Where as Silverstream and Graystripe met, fell in love, and had kits in the process of two books. I don’t have anything against, GrayXSilver, but I feel these two were more thought-through. (If that makes sense). I should write an article on this topic. Anyway, that’s my opinion. 😀

      • Jayfrost I agree. Millie neglected her kits because she was worried about Briarlight and her injured back. And she didn’t walk in, flash a smile, and become his mate. There is a long relationship between them in three books. Silverstream is the one who SWAM in, flashed a smile and became his mate. Mille and Graystripes relationship is really developed more than Graystripe and Silverstream. Gray x Mille for life!
        Also, I like more developed couples like Firestar x Sandstorm, Leafpool x Crowfeather, Graystripe x Millie, and so on. Couples like Firepaw x Spottedleaf, Feathertail\Nightcloud x Crowfeather, Graystripe x Silverstream, etc, really get on my nerves.
        I’m not trying to hate on Silverstream or anything, but I honestly like Millie more than Silverstream. Because I need to lower it down, I don’t like it when Millie snapped at her other kits when she was with Briarlight. It made me a bit upset at Millie. But for the most part, I love Millie!

  • I don’t have anything against Millie being Graystripe’s second mate. What I really hate for her is for neglecting her other kits when Briarlight was injured. Sure, Millie was worried, but that doesn’t mean she should have thrown aside her other kits and snapped at them when there was no reason to.

  • Honestly, I like Millie. I admire her for leaving her life to be with Graystripe. I mean, she knew nothing about the Clans! She trusted him enough to go with him. And she snapped at her other kits because one of them was paralyzed, for goodness sake! I bet she just didn’t want them to get hurt as well. She got mad easily because she didn’t want them to get into danger.

  • Millie is preety good as a character. I think she’s awesome, why do people think she’s a jerk anyway! She got Greystripe not because they easlily got in love. They got there relationship in the golden shortcut
    Friends To Family. I personally think she’s a beautiful cat and she has a clean personality, so I admit she ain’t no jerk. She’s preety cool. And preety wise. ( Not as wise as sandstorms advice to alderpaw but wise,). So I admit she needs more fanart and more admits that she’s no jerk.
