Ebonypaw examines the actions of Blossomfall.
Let’s talk about what the fan’s call of the most relatable Warriors characters. Blossomfall is a character most notable in fourth series, Omen of The Stars. She is jealous of her crippled sister Briarlight, which led her to The Dark Forest. Here’s why she’s annoying.
Just because she’s jealous doesn’t mean she can join The Dark Forest with a good reason. Would you fight for Hell just because your sibling gets more attention than you? Blossomfall knew the Dark Forest was evil
“A good cat wouldn’t be jealous of an injured littermate.So that’s why I’ve ended up in the Dark Forest. I’m not stupid. I know it’s where cats go if they’re not allowed into StarClan. But I guess I won’t get into StarClan either because I hate my sister for being injured. So the Dark Forest is where I fit in, and I’m getting good training, better than anything we get here.”
—Sign of The Moon page 246.
Blossomfall knew they were evil. She wasn’t forced to. She chose to. It was her own decision. Her own fault.
Now for me to explain the infamous tunnel scene. The scene where Millie yells at Blossomfall. Blossomfall goes into the tunnels with Ivypool. She tells her it’s not a bad idea, even though Firestar told the whole clan not to. Blossomfall had no right to go in the tunnels. She should’ve been use to her clan, especially since it was leaf-bare. She almost died there. Millie had no idea where Blossomfall was. Millie should be worried. She had an absolute reason to yell at her. If Millie hadn’t yelled at Blossomfall, it would show she didn’t care. Before you think “But what about Whitewing?”, does Whitewing have a kit who almost died 3 times in front of her? Whitewing is unaware Ivypool is in the Dark Forest.
Many people had said it was Millie’s fault Blossomfall trained in The Dark Forest. It was Blossomfall’s own decision. It’s Blossomfall’s fault she’s jealous of her dying sister. If it really was Millie’s fault, why wasn’t Bumblestripe in The Dark Forest? Unlike Blossomfall, Bumblestripe actually cares about his sister. “Briarlight would have loved this. It’s just not fair! She was trying to help Longtail. Why did StarClan have to punish her?” Fading Echos page 202. Not only that, but that one scene in Sign of The Moon where Bumblestripe takes the blame for letting Briarlight be out of camp when Briarlight was almost killed. Bumblestripe cares about Briarlight, why doesn’t Blossomfall? The only way my opinion on Blossomfall will truly change is if she dies protecting Briarlight. Now this is the death I want to see. If we also use the “It’s Millie’s fault” logic, then it’s also Blossomfall’s fault Ivypool trained in the Dark Forest.
“No way!” Blossompaw’s horrified mew took Ivypaw by surprise. “She’s not properly trained. Can’t I have Dovepaw? At least she can hunt” Fading Echos page 124. Blossomfall was always a jerk, even before the Briarlight incident.
“Oh but Millie hates Blossomfall and Bumblestripe”
Kate confirmed Millie loves all of her kits equally.
“Millie should pay attention to all of her kits and treat them like Briarlight.”
Last time I checked, Blossomfall and Bumblestripe were full grown warriors in Sign of the Moon.
“Just because she thinks she belongs in The Dark Forest doesn’t mean she was forced to when she first found it”
She could always refuse and never come back. Remember Tawnypelt?
“Millie abused Blossomfall”
No, Blossomfall abused Millie. She made Millie even more stressed.
“Blossomfall is still a loyal warrior, even if she was in the Dark Forest”
She didn’t even fight in the Dark Forest! She spectated like a coward!
So that’s my opinion. If you disagree, please express your opinion kindly in the comments. Thanks for reading!
