Hi, I’m Silverwing! I’m brand new to BlogClan and I’ve been reading Warriors for a couple of years now, but I only just finished Bramblestar’s Storm. I wanted to write about the three kittypets in there: Minty, Frankie (now Stormcloud) and Jessy.
Minty may seem daft and useless to most, but think about it – her Twolegs left abruptly without her because she was asleep, and she nearly drowned in that bathtub before Bramblestar and his patrol rescued her (apparently the BATHTUB got sunk by WATER. The more you know). It’s understandable that she would be apprehensive about everything, from sleeping in a nest of damp moss (which the Thunderclan cats couldn’t even handle) to having to eat freshkill when her soft tummy had had kittypet food for years. Despite this, she helped to rebuild Thunderclan when they got back to the hollow. She particularly helped Daisy in the nursery and Leafpool in the medicine den. It would be cool to see more of Minty in TVoS!!
Frankie was always my favourite, with his calm persona and silent strength. His personality was hard to grasp at. We know that Minty was the typical newbie and Jessy was boldly witty. But Frankie was as cool as a catcumber!! There are probably many reasons why he wanted to stay in Thunderclan. a) He was uncertain of his Twolegs’ whereabouts and had lost his brother and therefore had no family; b) He was touched by Bramblestar’s warrior tribute to Benny; c) He was willing to follow the warrior code and grateful to Thunderclan. Frankie was a complex character and it’s great that we can see more of him as Stormcloud.
Jessy, who’s just about as calm as the storm that hit the Clans. She reminds us of Squirrelflight – bold, feisty, not afraid to challenge Bramblestar despite him being older than both of them, and the Clan leader no less (on his part, Bramblestar does make kinda dumb decisions at times). And because they’re so similar, it’s easy to see why Bramblestar could’ve loved Jessy, as he said himself. Although it’s not outrightly stated, Jessy was probably also in love with Bramblestar, though it was probably because she tends to hang around him a lot and developed some mild feelings. Squirrelflight knows this, and hence Bramblestar got an #AWKWARD vibe when he spoke to both Jessy and Squirrelflight at the same time. But Bramblestar could never have loved Jessy as much as he loved Squirrelflight, because he would never go through so many highs and lows with any cat but Squirrelflight. Jessy is self-sacrificial and brave. It was unlikely she would return to her Twolegs and she even said that she liked the taste of warrior life. She could’ve chosen to stay in Thunderclan, become a full warrior and maybe even vy for Bramblestar’s love, but she didn’t and chose to leave, for the sake of Squirrelflight and Bramblestar’s relationship. That’s probably a good thing, because there’s no room for Bramblestar’s new love life in TVoS. Jessy’s a very headstrong character, and hopefully we can see more of her maybe helping the Clans in TVoS.
Yah so das it fellow cats! Please give me some feedback in the comments, this is my very first blog post and I’m eager to know what you think 🙂 Bye for now!!
