The Better Mate by Sky

Who is the better mate? Sky ponders the long argued question.

Hello, BlogClan!

Today, I’ll be analyzing the pros and cons of mates who loved the same cat. Yes. I have unpopular opinions sometimes.

GRAYSTRIPE – MILLIE VS. SILVERSTREAM

SILVERSTREAM

Pros –

Saved Graystripe from drowning

Matched his personality

Was a kind and loving she-cat who protected and watched her kits from the stars

Cons

Different Clan, which means breaking the warrior code

Distracted Graystripe from everyday ThunderClan life

MILLIE

Pros –

Saved him from dogs

Helped him find a way back to ThunderClan

Been with him longer

Cons –

Bad mother

Graystripe didn’t pay much attention to her, which makes it seem like he didn’t love her as much

Made Blossomfall and Bumblestripe neglected, and was the cause of Blossomfall training in the DF

Don’t get mad at me…. but I think Silverstream wins! Sparktooth, you don’t have to write a Millie-support paragraph again 😉

BERRYNOSE – HONEYFERN VS POPPYFROST

HONEYFERN

Pros –

The cat who made Berrynose show his kind side

His first love(I’m including this here because everyone thought he was an obnoxious jerk, and, well, they still do, but they didn’t see his good side)

Cons –

None?

POPPYFROST

Pros –

Bore him kits

Healed his heart

Cons –

Honeyfern’s sister and Berrynose’s second love, which looks fishy for Berrynose

Looks like a substitute for Honeyfern, as Berrynose mated with her basically days after Honeyfern’s death

Honeyfern wins. Yes, this is an unpopular opinion, but I can’t say that I wasn’t upset when Berrynose got Honeyfern’s SISTER PREGNANT SO SOON AFTER HONEYFERN DIED SERIOUSLY I CANT STAND IT.

Anyways….

CLEAR SKY – BRIGHT STREAM VS STORM VS STAR FLOWER

BRIGHT STREAM

Pros –

Let him show is loving side

Made him seem happy

His heart broke so bad when she died, which was a pivoting point for him, which shows how much he loved her

Cons –

Died? IDK

STORM

Pros –

Gave him a new chance for a mate

Bore him a kit(that he didn’t care about wut)

Cons –

Didn’t really like him anymore afte what he did, something that he deserved

STAR FLOWER

Pros –

Gave him a chance for a real family and redemption

Healed him sort of

Cons –

Dated his DARN SON WTH

Very fishy cat

Overall, I’d say Bright Stream wins. OKAY DON’T KILL ME PLEASE!!!!! BUT I HATE STAR FLOWER AND THINK THAT STORM IS BETTER OFF WITHOUT HIM….

Moving on…

BLUESTAR – TRUSHPELT VS. OAKHEART

TRUSHPELT

Pros –

Cared for her even after he realized she didn’t love him back

Was a kind and good cat

Cons –

It was fishy how he was all, “Oh I’ll be their father in ThunderClan.”

Bluestar didn’t love him back

OAKHEART

Pros –

Bluestar’s true love

Hated the fact that they could only be together for one night

Raised his kits as loyal RiverClanners

Cons –

RiverClan cat

Absolutely don’t care/mind 😛 I don’t ship Gray with anyone honestly. Although I will prob get an opinion on Oak or Thrush when I read Bluestar’s Prophecy.

I’m that strange person who has no opinion on Millie or Silverstream

Sky and Sparktooth I DO NOT need a paragraph from both of you to try and change my mind😜
Seriously though, this is an amazing article Sky, you have changed my mind and I now prefer Honeyfern to Poppyfrost !

I believe that Poppyfrost should get more love. It does seem very sketchy that Berrynose has kits with her after Honeyfern died, especially since Honeyfern was her sister.

I’m not saying I’m against Honeyfern, but Poppyfrost only wants to love and is gentle and kind.

I don’t like Star Flower either. Like Sky said, she “dated” Thunder and then ended up with his dad!!! I know in Warriors age doesn’t really matter, but it’s still kind of weird. And she also acted so. . . she made it seem like she was so innocent sometimes. That really bugged me and got me annoyed. I personally like Bright Stream for his mate, since she was his first love.


Keep sm;)ing

I was such a big Star x Thunder shipper and I was actually kinda wrecked when she went and started being stupid.

I’m sorry, but she’s really prevented me from getting into the Thunder x Violet thing

1. I think that Mille x Gray is pretty developed while Silver x Gray was love at first sight. However, I do like how Silverstream and Graystripe’s personalities fit so well together. I’m neutral on either pair.
2. I find Honey x Berry a sweet couple (no pun intended 😉 ), and I also like how kind and loving Poppyfrost is. But you’re right, it seems fishy to me how Berrynose went for Honeyfern’s sister right after Honeyfern died. I would have to say I like Honey x Berry a bit more.
3. I totally agree with you on this one. Storm wouldn’t have been too happy with Clear Sky. I have always absolutely hated Star Flower from the first time I saw her, and the fact that she dated his SON before she became mates with him is very odd. I think that Clear Sky would have turned out better with Bright Stream, and they would both be very happy together.
4. Don’t kill me, but I think Thrushpelt would have been the better mate if Bluefur had loved him. Playing as the father of Bluefur’s kits was an act of kindness, I think. Instead of being angry that Bluefur didn’t love him back, Thrushpelt wanted to help her and support her. He didn’t pressure her to become mates with him, and accepted the fact that Bluefur truly loved someone else. I believe that Thrushpelt was an outstanding cat.

Maple and Thistle are better than u!

Thrushpelt sounds like just a friend, not a lover. Oakheart and Bluestar were perfect. Hey, thanks for Mistystar who will never die! (Just realized how old she is!)

Millie was not a bad mother, but I’m not going to rant about that. I believe that SilverxGray was SO rushed like seriously she saves him, he thinks she’s pretty, they meet up a few times, she’s pregnant, dies. So rushed, and Silverstream literally had like one personality trait in my opinion. Millie and Gray’s relationship was a lot more developed, at least compared to the mess that is SilverxGray.
Star Flower was his mate for life and is (i think sorry if I’m wrong) even admitted by Gray Wing to be the mate Clear Sky needs, with her sharp tongue and stubbornness. IDK the page number sorry. I think it’s in Path of Stars. Also, same problem with BrightxClear. SO underdeveloped. All we know is that they like each other, Gray Wing likes Bright, then Bright Stream is dead. She’s honestly mentioned more after she’s already dead than when she’s alive. Just my opinion and I respect yours! 😀
