Prowlclaw shares what they wished had happened in the series.
Hello! Prowlclaw here with another article regarding what happened in the series that made me think of what could’ve happened. I know it sounds confusing, but you’ll know what I mean when I start, so without further a due, let’s begin!
1. Mousewhisker and Cinderheart- Yes, this is a ship I have, because I saw so much potential with these two. I shipped them because he was practically best friends with Cinderheart ever since he was little. You may have thought, “It’s only because she saved him!” But it was much more than that. I shipped them more after Cinderheart saved Mousewhisker, because he was so concerned for her and always tried to be by her side. Lionblaze didn’t even really acknowledge her until they were warriors, but by then she had become a bit of a drama queen. Cinderheart was always one of my favorites because of her role as Hollyleaf’s supportive friend, and that is how I will always remember her.
Shrewpaw and Squirrelflight- Another ship, sorry, I promise this is the last ship. Shrewpaw was very close to Squirrelpaw when they were apprentices, that was obvious. Even though he wasn’t with her for long, you could tell his understanding and somewhat rowdy personality mingled with Squirrelflight’s. I ship this mostly because Brambleclaw fights with Squirrelflight so much, and we all know deep down that is not a healthy relationship. Ashfur was too controlling and he had anger issues as well, which could have led to a very unhappy life with Squirrelflight. But Shrewpaw understood Squirrelflight was a flame that never died and there was a compromise between him and her. He understood her because he was in her shoes as an apprentice, that is why I ship them.
Nightcloud- Finally over with the ships. Now we get to the main attraction. I found someone who finally understood how I felt about Nightcloud. I quote from Amaterasu, “Her character got such a bad rep: she was written as a concerned mother in The Sight but was transformed into the wicked witch of WindClan because the Erins wanted to make you feel bad for Leafpool. Ironically it me feels bad for Nightcloud instead.” Nightcloud was a sweet mother who cared deeply for a lot of people in the sight. One scene from the sight show just how good of a mother she was. After almost being buried alive, Lionpaw and Breezepaw are taken to Thunderclan camp to be treated. Nightcloud is concerned for BOTH of the apprentices and proceeds to cuddle up next to them lovingly. This scene almost made me cry from sheer respect of Nightcloud.
