LeafpoolxCrowfeather: A Pair of Star-Crossed Lovers by Airwave

Airwave compares the stories of “star-crossed” lovers. 

Two Clans both alike in dignity, in the fair forest where we lay our scene.

Good-morrow my fair clanmates! It is I Airwave here to compare one of the greatest plays ever written that we all know about. Yes you guessed it Romeo and Juliet and Warriors. I was reading Twilight last night and I though ‘Leafpool and Crowfeather remind me of Romeo and Juliet’ and that my friends is where this article idea came from. We’ve been learning about Romeo and Juliet in English so that’s how I know the plot of the story. Without further ado, let’s get on with this shall we!

Side note: The plot of Romeo and Juliet is definitely not the same as the story of Leafpool and Crowfeather with all the dying and stuff. I will only be discussing the similarities between the two. Also this is spoilers for the New Prophecy series so if you haven’t read them, go read them now!

At the start of the play, the houses of Montague and Capulet are fighting in the streets.
We can say this is the gathering where Onestar is being a jerk telling Thunderclan they should stop helping the other clans. Thunderclan is Capulet and Windclan is Montague.

Romeo is in a bad mood because he is in love with Rosaline who isn’t in love with him. His friend Benvolio tells him that there’s a masked ball and Rosaline is going. Romeo decides to go.
Crowfeather is sad because Feathertail, his previous love, is dead.

When he’s at the ball he’s Juliet and falls in love with her.
During the rebellion against Onestar, Crowfeather confesses his to Leafpool.

Romeo and Juliet get married in secret.
Crowfeather and Leafpool meet each other in secret.

Romeo is banished because he killed Tybalt.
Crowfeather wants Leafpool to run away with him.

Lord and Lady Capulet want Juliet to marry Paris the next day.
Cinderpelt tells Leafpool that she has to stop meeting Crowfeather.

Juliet takes a potion from Friar Lawrence which makes her fall into a deep sleep for 3 days.
Leafpool goes to the moonpool where she sees Spottedleaf.

Romeo hears that Juliet is dead and goes back to Verona.
Leafpool and Crowfeather go back to their clans when Midnight tells them there’s a badger attack.

Romeo drinks some poison and dies. Juliet sees he’s dead and stabs herself with his dagger.
Crowfeather tells Leafpool that her heart is with her clan and they cannot be together. She lets him go anyway.

See the similarities? I hope you enjoyed my article! Farewell!
