Frostpaw defends some characters in the Warriors universe.
Hi guys! Frosty here with my very first article (yaaaayyy)! Everyone here has read Warriors (well duh) and each have their fair share of characters they love and hate, but I think there are some underrated characters that got a little more hate than they needed. Now this is just my opinion, so if you have a different one then feel free to post it in the comments! And be warned, you have decided to enter Spoilerville, so I suggest not reading this if you haven’t completed the first four series. So without further ado, let’s get started! (omsc the cringe is real tho)
I honestly don’t understand why people dislike Ferncloud at all. Just because she has a lot of kits doesn’t mean she is “pathetic” or “useless”. She is a big help in the nursery, always watches kits even if they aren’t her own, and make sure they don’t cause trouble for the warriors. Without her around, the nursery would be way more unrestrained and everyone would be tripping over kits 😛 . Overall, she’s a huge help to queens in the nursery and can keep kits occupied while the warriors are trying to do their jobs. I was appalled and even a little angry when I heard she was only killed because the Erins were receiving so much fan hate.
This is, in some ways, the same case as Ferncloud. I get it, she helps out with kits instead of hunting. I get it, she nearly tore a wedge between Cloudtail and Brightheart. But as the Erins said, Cloudtail just wanted to make her feel welcome, while Brightheart saw it a little differently. And Erin Code is law. (All hail the Erins!) Back to the point though, Daisy helped keep the kits in line like Ferncloud, and deserves little more respect.
I know that most people loved her until the second half of TPB and Bluestar’s Prophecy, and some flat out hated her after. I hear more than a few “she was a whiny brat!” and “she was legit psycho, dude!”s. I will admit halfway through reading Bluestar’s Prophecy, my approval of her fell off a cliff (presumably while playing Pokemon Go), but as a leader overall she was decent, and losing family members is a very difficult event to go through (trust me, I know from personal experience). As for TPB, she put all her faith in Tigerclaw after Redtail and Lionheart died. When he just betrayed her, she realized she was wrong the whole time and was affected with what might be PTSD (probably not, it’s just a theory). Even if Bluestar is far from your favourite character, she still doesn’t need as much hate as she gets.
Jayfeather is arguably one of the most popular cats in the entire series as a whole. Because of this, you’d expect for most people to love him. Well, News Flash – too bad. But luckily, so far, the only reasoning I’ve heard for people who hate him (which don’t worry – out of all the cats here, he’s probably the one with the least hate) is “LIKE O. MY. GOSH. HE IS SOOOOOOOOOO RUDE AND GRUMPY. I HATE HIM LIKE, SOOOOO MUCH.” Everyone has their own personality, people. Just accept it.
Equipping my Ashfur-Fanboy Repellent here, Hollyleaf was a great character and it was interesting to see her stance on the warrior code. Yes, she did try and feed Leafpool deathberries, but she was confused and caught in the heat of the moment. Yes, she did kill Ashfur, but he tried to kill her, Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Squirrelflight. He had it coming. Even though she did just tell the Clans anyway, she probably realized after she killed Ashfur that, psycho kitty or no, the truth would get out eventually and it was only a matter of time.
6.) Firestar *ducks flying chairs and Cheez-Whiz*
Okay, I know a lot of you will say he’s a complete Gary-Stu. And of course he is, he mastered the pogo stick on his day of birth, and everyone knows how hard that darn thing is. All things aside, Firepaw/heart’s fine, he faces lots of challenges and makes a few mistakes along the way. But Firestar is where it gets tricky. Fact is, I don’t think he was the biggest Stu around. I recently reread Dark River (by recently I two months ago 😛 ), and in it I think Hollypaw wants to help RiverClan for whatever reason, but what does Firestar do? A very non-Stuish thing, in fact. He refuses. But regardless, he still is a bit of a Gary Stu, but it doesn’t matter, it’s almost one in the morning right now.
So there’s my first article! Did you like it? Do you agree with my opinions? No? Tell me in the comments and have a good day! *halp cringe monster is dragging me away*
