Did Firestar love Spottedleaf more than Sandstorm? by Sparktooth

Sparktooth questions Firestar’s true feelings.

Hey once again, bloggers! Sparktooth is here! I was rereading a few of the older Warriors books, and began to think something I never considered first reading it. I began to wonder if Firestar cared for Spottedleaf a little more than Sandstorm. FireXSand is one of my favorite ships. So I would find it pretty upsetting if that was the case. But Firestar is one of my favorite characters, so chances are that feeling would go pretty quickly XD.

“The tortoiseshell she-cat padded toward the cave entrance and paused for a heartbeat, her pelt brushing his[Firestar]. Too soft for Sandstorm to hear, she murmured ‘Sometimes, I’d give anything for things to be different.’” -Firestar’s Quest, pg. 402.
This scene caused me to question Firestar’s feelings toward Sandstorm. Sandstorm was very hot-headed in this scene, and I don’t blame her. Firestar was acting very nice to Spottedleaf, a lot more than was necessary, I think. What I mean is it almost seemed like they were flirting or something. Sandstorm was his mate! I’m not saying Firestar doesn’t love Sandstorm because he certainly does. But Firestar lost someone who he fell in love with before: Spottedleaf. Even though he loves Sandstorm, that doesn’t mean he’ll stop loving Spottedleaf. It’s exactly like with Graystripe with Silverstream and Millie. He still loves Millie, but won’t stop loving Silverstream. But I still can’ get over how much Firestar mentions Spottedleaf. And I mean, he mentions her a LOT. Don’t believe me? Here:

“‘I think they’re wonderful names,’ Firestar replied. The dark ginger Squirrelkit for her fluffy tail, of course, and Leafkit in memory of Leafstar-and perhaps of Spottedleaf too.” -Firestar’s Quest, pgs. 509-510.
“Firestar stared at his daughter as though he were seeing her for the first time. ‘I wish you could’ve known Spottedleaf,’ he murmured. ‘You remind me of her.’” -Dawn, pg. 141.

There is plenty more than just two if you pay attention to the books. But those are the two I decided to include in this article. Moving on, ever notice how when Firestar smells Spottedleaf when he’s dreaming, he describes it as ‘Spottedleaf’s sweet scent.’ I don’t remember him describing Sandstorm’s scent that way. And in The Darkest Hour, Firestar wanders by the river sometime before the battle with BloodClan. He sits there and begs for Spottedleaf to help him, or send him some kind of sign. Why didn’t he go find Sandstorm?

After reading this, you’re probably like, “Firestar hates Sandstorm! Why is he pretending to love her when he obviously loves Spottedleaf!?” But…is that really true?
“‘I love you, Sandstorm,” Firestar put in. ‘You’ll never be second-best for me. My love for you belongs here and now, in the life that we share-and it will last for all the moons to come, I promise.’” -Firestar’s Quest, pgs. 401-402.
So maybe it’s just me. Maybe Firestar loves both of them equally. But do you remember the first quote from Firestar’s Quest I used? That happened right after the last quote I used.

Well, there’s my thoughts for you. Now that I read this over, I made Firestar sound a little more like the antagonist. Comment below if you think I should write a part two!

No he loves Sandstorm more. I just think it was the fact that Spottedleaf had promised him that she’d show him around in Starclan. I’m low key kind of glad that she is gone because she was low key ruining their relationship even if she didn’t realize it. She does not need to be that close to a cat who has a mate that he loves.

i think sandstorm is hated. I don’t like sandstorm but I think that spottedleaf ruined her relationship with Firestar. But spottedleaf isn’t noticed by Firestar so sandstorm was the bad guy. Cause spottedleaf just wants a mate. She deserves Firestar. I’m feeling real bad for sandstorm and spottedleaf. I don’t know who Firestar loves most. Like actullay. But my estimate is that Firestar loves sandstorm. And plus Firestar should have spottedleaf she is more preetier than sandstorm and Cinderpelt so spottedleaf should have Firestar!

My thoughts:
So, I think that Firestar loves Sandstorm and Spottedleaf, he loved Spottedleaf for like 2 books. Then when Cinderpelt told him that Sandstorm loves him and he should stay in the present, he could see how much Sandstorm had changed from mocking him and from loving him. I think he just loves both of them, but maybe Sandstorm a little more.


Yeah, no

I think spottedleaf is hated like she is preety smart and stuff but nine lives! She needs firestar more than sandstorm cause spottedleaf gave her heart to firestar and wished him good times with sandstorm it makes me cry when I hear it! I feel sorta bad for spottedleaf give spottedleaf a chance to have kits with firestar!!
