Stormsong discusses why the believe Leafpool should be leader.
Spoiler Alert read at your own risk!
So me and my friend were talking about Warriors and the thought came up: Who was the best leader?
Well, obviously Firestar. Then we debated about second-best leader. We decided on Tallstar- he was very nice to Firestar in The Darkest Hour when WindClan and ThunderClan teamed up against Scourge, and he’s very wise. We got bored of that and decided to talk about who was GOING to be leader.
I must admit, I’m disappointed about where Warriors is heading in this category. Honestly, none of the younger ThunderClan warriors are fit to be leader someday. (And the other Clans are the same way. Is Reedwhisker really the best RiverClan can get?) But one cat would make a great leader: Leafpool. Here’s three reasons why she would make a good leader someday:
Squirrelflight, her sister, is the deputy. Leafpool and Squirrelflight are sisters- it would make sense if Squirrelstar- let’s just assume Bramblestar died, okay?- made her sister the deputy. Maybe it would be unfair, but remember, Bramblestar chose his mate to be deputy.
Leafpool is caring. From her apprentice days as Leafpaw, she was always worried about her sister, Squirrelpaw, and the journey she was on. She cared enough not to break the secret Squirrelflight had. Also, as a medicine cat, she was really nice, which she got from her amazing mentor, Cinderpelt! Just because she was uncomfortable around Jayfeather and acted different around him- remember, she secretly gave birth to him- she was still a really good cat. Caring is a good quality in a mentor.
Leafpool needs a comeback. She was medicine cat, but had to be a warrior for breaking the Warrior Code. She caught on, sure, but is fighting and hunting really for her? I couldn’t bear to see her grow up into an elder, wither, and fade away without another word. Leafpool needs to come back, and it obviously isn’t going to work as a medicine cat.
So do you agree? I hope you do- Leafpool is very relatable to me as a cat and I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels that way. Leafstar! Leafstar! Leafstar!
