In Silverstream’s Defense by Sky

Sky shares their opinion on arguments against Silverstream.

Lots of people(near all of the Millie lovers) hate Silverstream. In this article, I’ll try to shift people to change their minds or maybe rethink their opinions.

Debater number one’s reason: She always used “I’m the leader’s daughter!” for her own good.

Me: That’s totally untrue. She never once said that in any book and was totally humble about being the leader’s daughter. Of course, I don’t have the books with me right now, but as I recall, she never did. Plus, even if she did, who do you think chose to get doted on by the Clan because of her parenthood? You don’t choose your family, do you?

Debater number two’s reason: She a mary-sue who cared about no one but her own happiness.

Me: Really? I don’t recall that at all. From what I’ve read of her, she’s a she-cat who was kind, helpful, and clever. She had her faults as well, so no, she’s not a personality-mary-sue. And definitely not a real mary-sue. For StarClan’s sake, she wasn’t even in any prophecies!!!!! Also, if you’re talking about that part in which she said that she didn’t care that her kits would be half-Clan, that’s the reaction of most mothers!!!!! If you were about to become a mother/father of illegal kits, would you say, “Aww I feel so bad for them they’ll have the worst life ever?” I highly doubt it. Plus, you can’t argue that she was a bad mother.

Debater number three’s reason: She had a perfect life and gave birth to the perfect kits. Her kits also carried the blood of every Clan but ShadowClan!

Me: Well, did she say, “Okay I want to be the leader’s daughter” and immediately become that? No. You don’t choose your parents and if one of your parents was the president, you’d definitely live in the upper-class. Just because you’re richer doesn’t give anyone a reason to HATE you! Also, Silverstream didn’t even decide that her kits would go on the journey and be some of the most important cats on it! Oakheart chose Feathertail and Stormfur decided to go with his sister. And, I’ll repeat, you don’t choose your family(other than your spouse). She fell in love with Graystripe and just happened to have the blood of so many other Clans. Why hate her for that?

That’ll conclude my article! Um…. as long as you don’t flame, I’m cool with your comments and opinions. Thanks!

  • I totally agree! I don’t know why people hate Silverstream, she’s a really cool character =)
    Silverstream: Why thank you!
    AHHHH Why are so many characters butting in on my comments???

  • I don’t hate or love Silverstream. She’s just a regular cat to me, however I LOVE her name (it’s sooo pretty!) 😀

    Nice article, Sky! I never really developed any opinion on her. And I never considered her as a brat or a Mary-sue either. Though I can tell you, I cried at her death 🙁😭

  • I liked the article but Silverstream did say “I am the Clan leader’s daughter!”, Silverstream hissed.”

      • She got her WindClan blood through her mother, Willowbreeze, who was half WindClan (Willowbreeze’s and Graypool’s father was deputy of WindClan at one point. His name is Reedfeather). 🙂

  • Nice article! Even though you all know what a big Millie-supporter I am 😛 , I don’t hate Silverstream. I never once thought she was a mary-sue or hated her because of who she was related to. However, I did sometimes get a little annoyed about her always saying “I’m the leader’s daughter.” Trust me, she does say it in the books, a lot.

    “Silverstream bristled. ‘I won’t let anything bad happen to Graystripe!’ ‘Oh really?’ Firestar snorted. ‘And what could you do to protect him?’ ‘I am a Clan leader’s daughter,’ meowed Silverstream. ‘Does that give you the power to control your father’s warriors? You’re hardly more than an apprentice!'” -Fire and Ice, pg. 163.

    That’s just one example I felt like including, but if you scan through the books Fire and Ice and Forest of Secrets, you’ll find that line here and there.

    • Right, but she never used it for bad purposes, like, “If you don’t do this and this, I’ll tell my dad! I’m the leader’s daughter!” She only ever really used it to give herself a sense of protection about Graystripe and her relationship.

      I’m glad that you don’t hate Silverstream just because you like MillieXGray. A lot of people are like that.

  • Great article! i think I like both SilverXGray and MillieXGray, because people keep coming out with articles on SilverXGray VS MillieXGray and their always so convincing I don’t know which one I like 😛
