Starstripe:
Hey Blogclan!!!
Today I’m with Moonpaw/ripple who is new to Blogclan and this is her first ever article, we’ll be talking about literally what it says on the title.

Moonripple:
Hey clanmates! It’s me! So far, I’m loving our clan so me and my sister Starpaw/stripe have decided to make an article on how and why did you come to Blogclan. Tell us in the comments below! 

Starstripe:
We’ll talk about how we found warriors and then we’ll leave it to you guys…
So let’s get started!
I found Warriors from my friend in primary school, it was all she could read, and for ages, she tried to convince me to read them too. But I just dismissed as ‘those weird cat books’ ok so yeah she convinced me and it’s basically the best thing that’s ever happened me.

Moonripple:
My friends, primary librarian and my mum recommended me Warriors, I just thought it was a ‘hard book for nerds’. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Once I opened ‘Into the wild’ and read the prologue I couldn’t unstick my eyes from it; I read it while I was getting to class and under the tables in lessons. Well, that was a mistake as the teacher got angry but it was worth it!

Starstripe:
I have to say, when I saw someone else holding a Warriors book, I practically screamed! It’s amazing to meet other people who love the same things as me…

Moonripple:
And meh!

Starstripe:
Which leads me nicely on to my next point…how I found Blogclan. I’ve been on Blogclan for a few years now, and I remember the old website. I saw the Warriors website at the back of my book and I knew I had to go on it. But it was nothing much, it had a list of the books and a few print-outs, but nothing I could interact with. Then, one day, when searching Warriors in the Google Bar it said Blogclan underneath my recently-visited Warriors website and clicked on it. And that…was the start of my journey. Moonripple over to you…

Moonripple:
Well Starstripe, clever clogs, you are the person who lead me to Blogclan so there! I can tell you NOW that that was a GREAT choice!!! When you first told me, I was planning to go on it and then I forgot!!! The next day I DID go on it but I found it a bit boring! Nothing to do! Then when you told me about the blogs, I read all your past blogs and decided to write my own. There was one small problem though. I didn’t know how!!! So then I asked Starstripe and here I am! Writing my blog!!! 

Starstripe:
But why do YOU love Blogclan Moonripple?

Moonripple:
What do you think!?

Starstripe:
I love meeting people like me and you only have to look at how long the Allegiances is to remind myself how many people agree with my book choices. I love immersing myself in a world so much that I forget everything, negative and positive, in this world, I can forget everything I’ve been worried about and just focus on the characters.

Moonripple:
I love how so many people agreed all the terms and conditions and how many people are mentioning and making studios on Scratch (scratch.mit.edu) and search up Warrior cats. You will be surprised at the results! Blogclan; I love it because there are so many people who like the same thing! It’s so cool how many people relate to Warriors.
This will go down in history!!!

Starstripe + Moonripple
OK, so we’ve been going on for WHILE about how we found Warriors and Blogclan, but the main point of this article is YOU! We would be so happy if we could make a Blogclan record! Please share your stories in the comments, here on Blogclan I don’t think we really appreciate or understand just how much of a community this is. So share your stories and…
May Starclan light your path!

    Okay I love my sister but this is how it happened
    My mom was taking my sister to Barnes and Noble because she used to be a fan of Spirit Animals. She came home with two books, one was the third Spirit Animals, and one was Warriors-Midnight. I read the first chapter and I was all like, “What the heck? How come there’s a million cats!!!” and I stopped reading it until my friend, Ellie lended me the first book and I was like “oooooohhhhh, so those cats are from different Clans?” and when I finished the first series (I was really into it so I finished it in 3 weeks) I read Midnight. That’s how I came across Warriors!

    It makes me happy and sad to see that Starstripe and Moonripple are both sisters who love the series! Let me explain…And DONT think I’m writing this because of some grudge against my sister, it all really happened…
    SADDEST WARRIORS FANS STORY:

    My sister started reading Warriors but started with the second book in the series Fire and Ice. She loved it soooo much and got very excited, she started reading so many Warrior books that I, her twin, became interested. Soon I was hitched also to the books. I loved it just as much as her! We were never seen without a cat two inches thick book in our hands afterward. My sister was I think in the fourth or fifth book in the first series when she noticed I was catching up. Yes, catching up. Immediately it became competition. We were rival twins and I was the fastest reader. Then she came up with a sneaky plan, making me promise with all my heart that i would ALWAYS be two books behind her. I accepted not wanting to get into an argument. In other words, the worst decision in my life.
    I soon was two books behind her, and true to my word, I waited. She finished the book and I quickly was able to devore another Warriors book. Much, much, faster than my sister. And I waited again. She took so long that soon I saw the mistake I had made. You see, my family keeps their word and never lies, yes it is kinda amazing how truthful and loyal we are. But then, I saw the book I was going to read next, and I wanted a sneak peek. Just a little one. My sister CAUGHT me. She was furios, how dare I, her twin, part of the family tradition, break my word?
    It was horrible, she had so much spite against me, my mother was not pleased either. And then I kept reading. Which made it worse. My sister and I had war, without speaking to each other for days, ignoring each other, and tormenting. It was a dark age for all of my family. Soon my mother could not stand it any longer, I hid a Warriors book my sister wanted and I would not give it to her. She cried bitter tears and my mother banned Warriors books from our house.
    She took back all the Warriors books she had bought for us and the ones from the library. I was outraged. My sister too blamed me. Days, weeks, months, went by. My sister and I made peace. Vowing never to talk of those books that had ruffled our family again near each other.
    Then when winter was over, spring came and left, summer bloomed, my mother told me I could read the books again because we had grown up a little bit more and knew how to respect each other. I was overjoyed. My sister, fearfully awaiting another battle between us, refused.
    So I enjoyed them. I loved them. I read them. And I am still to this day, I never talk about my love of Warriors to her anymore. She refuses to acknowledge them, and I accept her decision. They became idols to us and we became addicted. Im glad those days are over. I am glad I can still enjoy the books, even though I am extra careful around them now.

    I hope that one day my sister will love them again and enjoy them with me. Aliyah, this is for you.

    I discovered Warriors in first grade when I was at a library, and I was going to check out a book and go to a coffeeshop, and first I actually chose Survivors #2! But it was #2, and #1 was out, so I saw Midnight! I probably thought something like “Oh, that book has a cat on it! I like cats!” So I got it out. It didn’t make sense, but I still really liked it and kept reading them more and more until they eventually made sense! Two other kids in my class read them too, but one of them stopped in second grade and one in third grade, so then was the only one. Eventually, I read the first book and realized I didn’t need to have read all those books to understand how prophecies worked, and StarClan, and Silverpelt, and al the references to the first series!
    I found BlogClan when I was looking up pictures of orange cats to try to find out what Firestar would have looked like as a kittypet, and i clicked on an image and it was linked to the old BlogClan camp. I quickly found the moving announcement and came over here, and I’ve stayed ever since! And actually, when I found BlogClan, I was taking a break from Warriors because I had read the books so many times I knew exactly what was happening and it was more boring, so I took a break from them. But once I came to BlogClan, I started reading them again! 😀 😀 😀

    EDIT: The exclamation points… are real
