5. Maggottail/Shredtail/Snowtuft
These are all unknown cats, which makes them interesting and makes us want to know their stories. There’s not much to say about this except it would be great to have e-books telling us about these cats and where they came from, and what they did to end up in the dark forest.

The Hunters have said that being a forbidden couple influenced Minnowtail and Mousewhisker’s decision to be in the dark forest. So let’s see this forbidden couple! Did they ever get caught? How long did it last? How did it end? Why did they think it was necessary to join the dark forest? Lots of questions surround this couple, and I’m sure the fandom would love some answers.

3. Thistleclaw
When Thistleclaw dies, he goes to the dark forest. I think that would be a good spot for this book to start. I know one of the hunters said Bluestar chased him into the dark forest as a joke, but that might also be a good start for the book. However, it does seem reasonable that when Thistleclaw dies that he goes to the dark forest because as we see in Crookedstar’s Promise, Thistleclaw had been training in the dark forest. I think that this e-book could focus in more on Thistleclaw and his personal feelings on subjects like his love for Snowfur, Snowfur dying, his distaste for Bluestar, Bluestar raising his only son, the only part of Snowfur he had left. I think it would be nice to see inside the mind of Thistleclaw. Also, it could maybe show some drama or something at the StarClan/Dark Forest border between Bluestar, Snowfur, and Thistleclaw. It would help explain the question many fans have which is, “What happened to Thistleclaw and Snowfur when Thistleclaw died?” This has many people wondering because when both mates die, they meet in StarClan and become mates again, but in Thistleclaw’s case, he was sent to the dark forest, so what happened? Did he and Snowfur never speak, or did they? Did Snowfur miss him, did Snowfur want nothing to do with him? It would also be interesting to have a whole e-book with the setting of the dark forest. Maybe there could be new things to learn about the dark forest, and maybe even a few new cats who might have faded before the time the Dark Forest starting training for the great battle. I think overall, it’s an ebook the fandom would love to see.

2. Silverstream
I often think about the whole SilverXGrey relationship and I wonder why everyone likes it so much because, to be honest, I don’t think we saw much of it, and really, people say things like “Wow Silverstream is my favorite cat!” But we don’t know much about her really, we hardly see her in the books. I think an e-book about her falling in love with Greystripe would be great. It would give the GreyXSilver shippers more ship fuel and would help everyone get a better idea of who Silverstream was as a cat. What personal struggles did she go through? How did she feel about the entire relationship? What were her thoughts about having kits? I think an e-book with Silverstream has tons of potential and is long overdue.

Okay this e-book is so needed. I mean, one of the most shocking moments in warriors history is the fire scene where Ashfur nearly lets Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Hollyleaf burn alive before Squirrelflight’s eyes. This e-book would be a best-seller, because love him or hate him, everyone has some kind of strong feeling about Ashfur. The e-book would follow him as he falls into madness. It would show his thought process. It could maybe even reveal sinister thoughts he has or could reveal he feels ashamed her can’t be happy for her. It could also show his thoughts as he plots with Hawkfrost to set a death trap for Squirrelflight’s father. How did Hawkfrost know to plot with Ashfur, and what did Ashfur want to happen? Did he just want Firestar to die, and not care how? Or did he want Brambleclaw to kill Firestar, so that he could go to the clan, and so that on top of Squirrelflight’s father dieing, Squirrelflight would have to deal with the shock that it was her own mate that killed him? Did Ashfur want to cause her only pain then, or was there a small hope in him that if Brambleclaw killed her father that she would love Ashfur again? Also, what was Ashfur’s reaction when the plot didn’t work? Was he mad, or relieved? And then the e-book would also follow Ashfur’s feelings as he mentors Lionpaw, and I think the scene where he fights Lionpaw could be really juicy, with all his emotions flooding out and him trying to take his hate out on Lionpaw but getting frustrated because he can’t hurt Lionpaw. And of course, the e-book would follow him to the fire scene, showing what was going through his mind, and then down to when Squirrelflight, Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather try to stop him from talking at the gathering. Did he consider stopping? And then, when he was down by the river, what was he thinking? Was he stressing about whether he really wanted to tell all the clans, or feeling content and joyful about what he was going to do? Then, what was his reaction as Hollyleaf killed him? And how did he react when he was put in StarClan? Did he feel normal, like he knew StarClan would take him? Or did he feel shocked because he didn’t know StarClan would still take him after his actions?

I think all of these have real potential to be great e-books, and I really hope the Hunters well take these ideas into consideration 🙂 That’s all I have to really say. Who do you think would make a great e-book, and why? Leave your answer down below in the comments! Goldenclaw out.

  • Cool. I would be interested in seeing an Appledusk novella, as I feel like Appledusk is only known as “that RiverClan jerk who broke Mapleshade’s heart”, and I think it would be interesting to see his side of things and also see further back in their relationship, and get more development on the infamous love triangle with Reedshine, and also whatever events might have been happening in RiverClan at the time. Appledusk’s Love?
    Another novella I think would be interesting is Darktail and his childhood, maybe to give his philosophy more solid reasoning and show how he met all his rogue friends and came to a place of some power. Darktail’s Rise?
