Why I Don’t Like Flametail by Ebonypaw

Ebonypaw explains their dislike of Flametail.

Honestly, I think Flametail is overrated. He’s good at his job, but not with being a good cat.

Flametail was a jerk to Lionblaze when he accidentally killed Russetfur. Russetfur took away one of Firestar’s lives, so of course Lionblaze would be angry at her! How Lionblaze acted made it obvious Russetfur’s death was a mistake. “Lionblaze scrambled to his paws. The she-cat [Russetfur] flopped, unmoving, onto the ground, her eyes wide open but clouded with death. His breath came in panicked gasps. “I d-didn’t do anything!”He hadn’t even scratched her. Only pulled her loose. How could she be dead?” -Fading Echos, page 295. Russetfur was too old to be fighting. She was older than Purdy (Mousefur is the same age as Purdy), of course she would die. Flametail should’ve known better, yet decided to bully Lionblaze for it. “Lionblaze swallowed against the rage that rose from his belly. ShadowClan arrogance! “Shouldn’t you be back at your camp, treating your wounded?” “My Clanmates are well.” Flametail fixed his gaze on Lionblaze. “Except for Russetfur, of course.” -Night Whispers, page 31. “Come to kill me like you killed Russetfur?” -Night Whispers, page 30.

Then Flametail decides to blame Jayfeather for his death, even though he was obviously trying to save him. Flametail saw Rock telling Jayfeather to let him go. “Then Flametail saw another pair of eyes. Bulging and white. There was a third cat in the water. A grotesque creature. Hairless and scarred. Flametail stared at it as it seemed to float beside them. A tiny part of his mind wondered if this was a StarClan cat he hadn’t met yet. But did any warriors, past or present, ever look like that? The ugly cat reached toward Jayfeather.Let him go! Flametail heard the voice in his head. It wasn’t speaking to him. It was speaking to Jayfeather. It is his time to die, not yours. Let him go! “- Night Whispers, page 281-282. And then Flametail tries to let Jayfeather drown. “Help me I’m drowning!” Flametail took a step forward, then stopped, his eyes burning. “I know how you feel.” “Can you reach me?”Jayfeather strained to see the ground behind him. Perhaps it was sold enough there to take Flametail’s weight. “Why should I?” Flametail’s mew was icy. “You didn’t save me” -The Last Hope, page 182. “It wasn’t fair,” Flametail snarled. “It was such a stupid way to die!” -The Last Hope, page 182. “Why should I believe you?” Flametail spat. “Thunderclan is full of murderers!” -The Last Hope, page 182. “Ivypool!” Flametail thrust his muzzle through the reeds. “I was looking for the path to StarClan and she tried to claw my throat out! She would have succeeded if Tigerheart hadn’t stopped her! Now I’m going to let you die instead!” – The Last Hope, page 183. Letting Jayfeather drown was stupid and ungrateful. Killing Jayfeather just because his clanmate almost killed him also didn’t make any sense. I don’t know what went through Flametail’s mind.

As a medicine cat, Flametail could go where ever he wanted, but the point of this rule is to gather herbs and go to the Moonstone. Flametail tries to use this to his advantage. “Flametail spotted a group of ThunderClan cats stepping gingerly onto the ice near their territory. He didn’t care. There were no boundaries on the lake. Anyway, he was a medicine cat. He could go wherever he chose.” – Night Whispers, page 279.

And finally,the hypocrite part. Flametail bullies Lionblaze by telling him he’s glad they’re not kin. “Flametail blinked at Lionblaze, ignoring Cinderheart. “Once I thought we were kin,” he spat. “Now I’m glad we’re not. I would hate to share blood with a murderer.” -Night Whispers, page 31. Not only is this rude, but Flametail’s grandfather is Tigerstar, a murderer and a traitor. His uncle Brambleclaw also killed Hawkfrost. Lionblaze and Flametail also are kin, they are third cousins, so you failed there Flametail.

Ha! Emberrr!!! We’re the main attraction at blogclan right nowww!! Don’t worry, I’ll keep the pony photo safe. 😛 There seems to be nothing on you except for a few things that are mild, Ember. So, I think I’m gonna start on Iceflower now. 😉 You were her mentor, do you know anything? 😛


Yes, that was you I just ate

1. You say that like they can’t just look and click on the link 😛 There’s no curtain to hide it 😛

2. I was her mentor. Why do you think I’d be so quick to betray her?

Both Mint and Honey are inactive, so… no dice there 😛 I could always just edit out or delete the comments the other two make so nothing reaches you 😛 And I would say I’ve earned their respect enough to not stab me in the back 😉

Well, I’d like to give Honeypaw a little bit more time, so I’m afraid being added to the list of my former apprentices won’t be happening until after December 😛

To Embix

I am extremely sorry if I made you uncomfortable in any way by looking into your past things. I now understand that it was wrong, and I shouldn’t have done it without your consent. I hope this does not ruin your thoughts of me, and I wish to make it up to you. I withdraw my offer to Birch, Icy, Mint, and Honey. I hope that you can forgive me, and I’m truly sorry.
Sincerely, Crookedmoon.

For me, it was alright since I don’t have anything that I feel particularly embarrassed or ashamed of, but that could be very different for other people. We all have points in our lives that we don’t want to revisit, much less have other people poking around and bringing it up to us years after the fact. I forgive you, Crooked, so please be respectful to other people as well 🙂

Thank you, Ember. My days of searching for stuff in the past are over, so I don’t think I’ll be doing it anymore. 😀
