Should Thistleclaw be in the dark forest or no? by Brightfeather

 Brightpaw asks whether Thistleclaw deserved to be in the Dark Forest or not.

I think the Thistleclaw should be in the dark forest for some reasons and some not really.
Why he shouldn’t be in the dark forest.
1. He never really killed any other cat. Maybe in the last hope but im not sure of it.
2. He did care for his kin.
3. He loved his sisters, Snowfur and Whitekit.
4. He was originally sent to starclan but Bluestar chased him out.
5. The only reason he was really ever the way he was might be because of ambition and maybe the way bluestar treated him.

Why he should be in the dark forest.
1. He did have allot of ambition.
2. He always wanted to settle things in a fight.
3. He did train in the dark forest and tried to learn the killing move. And I’m not saying Ivypool or Crookedstar are evil for going their.
4.He trained Tigerstar to be a killer. Tigerstar would have never turned out like this if it wasnt for Thistleclaw and Pinestar.
5 He trained other cats to do the same, kill and kill.

(WARNING: Minor spoiler alerts for Bluestar’s prophecy, Read at your own risk.)

I think Thistleclaw should be in the Dark Forest. I support my claim with the following evidence:

1, Thistleclaw never served his vigil, although he knew he had to.

2, Thistleclaw was never stated to not have killed any cat. (The story is continuing even if a character is off of the page.)

3. Thistleclaw gladly trained in the Dark Forest knowing that it was the Dark Forest, and he had no reason to be there besides from wanting to become stronger than he already was.

Those are my three reasons why Thistleclaw should remain in the Dark Forest.

Plus he’s also happy to be there. Even if he had a choice he would’ve CHOSEN the Dark Forest. I think cats who are currently in StarClan (Ashfur, Mudclaw, Blackstar…) belong there and cats who are in the Dark Forest (Thisleclaw, Darkstripe, Mapleshade…) belong there because why would they be there if they didn’t belong…?

But just like we probably need a Novella to see why cats like Tangleburr (amazing name!) and Brightflower are in the Dark Forest it would also be cool to see why cats like Ashfur are in StarClan…

I think there are like requirements for getting in the Dark Forest. I definitely DO NOT think killing a cat is a requirement, because Lionblaze accidentally killed Russetfur, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to the Dark Forest.

It is NOT Pinestar’s fault

Overall, decent article but not really supporting one or the other? Try and set it up like an argument:
Intro+Claim+Side
Support+Evidence
upport+Evidence
Counter argument+Evidence
Disproving Other Argument+Evidence
Conclusion+Restate Claim and Side

First of all, Whitestorm was his kit, Snowfur was his mate, NOT sisters.
The whole “He was originally sent to starclan but Bluestar chased him out.” was a joke.
Second, ambition isn’t always a BAD thing.

Thistleclaw did care for his sisters though 🙂

Thistleclaw definitely deserves the Dark Forest. He is the reason Tigerclawstar and Scourge are evil!
