Sky presents: The eternal hatred of Appledusk.
Hello, BlogClan! I’m here with another article.
I know that 90% of the cats on the Blog love Mapleshade and hate Appledusk, but I just wanted to make an article anyways.
Appledusk was probably one of the only mates in the warriors series that flat-out cheated on his mate. He turned away a mother who had just lost her kits, jumped onto a she-cat he’d been flirting with just in case, and then did a “noble” act of sacrifice. He didn’t deserve StarClan. Not in the least.
First off, he CHEATED. He told Mapleshade that he loved her while he flirted with another she-cat behind her back, just in case something bad happened. He was a selfish brat who didn’t give a cinch to his mate, who was obviously smitten with him. When his kits died, he didn’t even think about feeling bad, he just threw all the blame on a heart-broken mother and kicked her out into the wild. He then decided, “Oh, yay, time for me to mate with this other lady I’ve been flirting with.” All he wanted to do was to carry on his tainted blood.
Fans of Appledusk might argue that he was very brave and noble when he sacrificed himself for Reedshine and his kits. All I get out of that is an attempt to look good and get into StarClan while carrying on his bloodline.
Secondly, he ABANDONED HIS MATE IN HER TIME OF NEED. Mapleshade had just lost the only thing that she had left – her kits. And why did she cross the river, you may ask? Because she thought that she’d be safe with Appledusk. Even after her kits drowned, she just wanted to be with Appledusk. And what did Applebutt do? He accused, yelled, and abused her. And then he appealed to his leader, with the help of his back-up mate, and wouldn’t even let Mapleshade rest for ONE NIGHT. All he cared about was saving face and his own comfort. In fact, Applebutt’s been abusing Mapleshade since she first fell in love with him. He’s abused her love for him, and all for himself. He’s a selfish butthead who should be in the Dark Forest.
In conclusion, there is no doubt that Applebutt is one of the worst mates ever. I highly doubt that he truly loved Mapleshade and Reedshine, he just wanted to carry on his bloodline.
I can’t wait to read your comments! 🙂
