Moonpaw shares their opinion about Ashfur and his placement in the ranks of StarClan.
Now, here’s the question many of us have asked and many more will; Should Ashfur have gone to Starclan? Does he deserve the luxurious after life for the good cats? Or does he deserve the trecherous Dark Forest, does he deserve the pain? In this article, I will answer these questions to the best of my ability based on MY opinions.
So, first off, I’d like to say no. No I do not think he deserves to go to Starclan. And here’s the reasons why.
Reason number one, he threatened the lives of 4 cats from his clan, and nearly killed his leader. Fans can say what they want, that he was in pain, that he wanted love, that he couldn’t help himself, etc. But in reality, he was still in control of his own body. He still had the ability to think over his actions and choose which course to take.
He attempted to murder his own leader, and plotted with evil cats to do it. He was planning to watch his leader bleed to death over the fact that Squirrelflight chose Brambleclaw over him. Had he succeeded, he definitely would have gone to the Dark Forest; so why should we let him go to Starclan thanks to Brambleclaw being responsible and saving Firestar?
Onto Squirrelflight, Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze. He had the ability to save them all, and perhaps earn Squirrelflight’s gratefulness. But instead, he chose to threaten to kill them all, simply because he wanted to punish Squirrelflight for not remaining mates with him. He would have rather killed them than talk it out rationally like a mature warrior. Not only was it lucky that Squirrelflight was able to talk him into letting them go, but he then threatened to reveal to every cat at the next gathering that The Three were not Squirrelflight’s kits. This could have possibly gotten then severely punished if he had talked the leaders into it.
So overall, he attempted to murder his leader, threatened to kill Squirrelflight and The Three, and changed their lives for the worse. He had complete control over his actions, and did all of this because of love drama. Thrushpelt handled it like Ashfur should have, this is proof that Ashfur didn’t have to take the course he took.
In conclusion, he deserves to go to the Dark Forest, and does not deserve to go to Starclan.
Just a reminder, this is my opinion. If you feel differently, feel free to comment why below.
