Ahh where do I start?
Well I geuss I have to start somewhere so I’ll start of with the question…
What did Leafpool do wrong?
In Hollyleaf’s, Jayfeather’s and Lionblaze’s eyes Leafpool broke two “rules” of the warrior code, and seemingly lied about everything they knew. Jayfeather especially took this as a blow because Leafpool was his medicine cat mentor and Hollyleaf (she and Leafpool both have leaf in their names, is it just a coincedence?) was a very loyal cat, breaking two rules of the warrior code was to much for her to handle.
And anyways who said that medicine cats weren’t aloud to have kits? The warrior code didn’t so who did? I suppose it’s just because medicine cats are supposed to love everyone in the clan equally. I think that Leafpool was considering taking Cinderheart as her appretice, as she is Cinderpelts reincorination. But she had Jaykit then and since he was blind I geuss she wanted him to have a good life and do some good to the clan.
Now, for the Crowfeather being their father. Leafpool wasn’t going to go back to clan life until Midnight told her and Crowfeather that the badgers were planing an attack! Thunderclan have lived without a medicone cat before when in the book “Mapleshades Vengance” Mapleshade killed the Thunderclan medicine cat so I’m sure they would have figured something out if the badger attack had never happened.
Yup those are all my reasones, next I’m doing Squirrelflight! Hope you enjoyed!! ;p

  • I’m tired of people hating on her so thank you for making this article. She’s one of my favorite characters in the series. I do think her kits and Bramblestar had a right to be angry though but I do think Hollyleaf completely overreacted and took it way too far.

  • Yeah I agree 😊 with you like leafpool is a wonderful wonderful character she was just so strong all the time and she loves crowfeather so and he’s horrid to her in power of the three series I do like crowfeather but I hate his attitude when he denies that he fathed her kits okay in his mind he knew it was true but he didn’t show it he was trying to be loyal to windclan and he still grieved for her feathertail who I think is brilliant but all the same he loves leafpool and back to leafpool entirely she stood by mothwing s side when she struggled to cope as a medicine cat and kept her secret and I feel so sorry for leafpool when she sees her kits every day and can never treat them like her own even when they forgive her and hollyleaf dies so yeah she suffers so much and is strong and fights through for her clan personally I could go on with good stuff about leafpool beacause she is one of I have loads my fave character’s so yeah omg I’ve actually written enough for a blog anyway I love your blog I comment a lot bye
