Sorreltail’s Novella by Sorrelpaw

Hihihih i, I’m Sorrelpaw, commonly known as Sorzi. My warrior name: Sorrelstream. I LOVELOVELOVE that name, it’s so great! And you can easily translate it into a wonderful top-notch Tribe name: Sorrel That Drowns in Stream. I have considered renaming myself Sorreldrownstream to better fit my Tribe name.

Two warriors characters that I can immediately think of who share my prefix: Sorreltail and Sorrelstripe. Both “Sorrel”s like me. Actually, Sorrelstripe was named after Sorreltail. Which makes Sorreltail the most important character who has the prefix Sorrel. I’m so proud to share the prefix!

I’m not the only BlogClanner who is proud to share a prefix with a Warriors character, though, I’m sure. If you like, for example, Tigerstar, you’re BlogClan name might be Tigerflower (okay maybe that’s more like a TigerclawXGoldenflower ship name). But you get what I mean, right? I really really hope I’m not the only one who named myself after a character. Because then I’d really seem weird.

Anyway back to the article! Ahhhhhhhhhh! Sorreltail’a epic epic epic yass we all agree (or not). I think she deserves to get her own Superedition or at least Novella for being so amazing. And if she does, it should be called Sorreltail’s Sacrifices, because she certainly seems to have sacrificed quite a lot.

Her most notable sacrifice was probably in the aftermath of the DF battle, where she LOST HER LIFE. She lost her life. No wait lemme rephrase. She SACRIFICED her life to be with her beloved kits. Oh StArClan is that not so amazing? She sacrificed her own life to be with her kits.

But some of you might argue that it was STUPID. Why would you sacrifice your whole life for a few heartbeats with your kits?! Why not get your wounds patched up to spend more moons and seasons with your kits and mate? Why didn’t Sorreltail do the obvious…?

You see, this is why we need a novella for her. Maybe it was because she was so desperate to make sure her kits were safe that she did not care about or heed her injuries. Maybe she thought that her injuries were way to severe for her to live any longer and wanted to see her kits one last time before she died. I don’t know… Maybe, maybe maybe. This is why we need a novella. So that we can know the motive behind Sorreltail’s life-changing decision.

And then, look at one of her earlier sacrifices. Okay I admit she was kind of forced into this sacrifice and it isn’t really a sacrifice at all, but recall when Sorreltail’s warrior ceremony got delayed when she got into an incident. But she worked hard and yay became a proud and respected warrior in the end. She didn’t show any jealousy to her brothers for becoming a warrior before her. She didn’t. She acted like life was goooooood.

Yet I mean, she couldn’t have just REALLY been so tranquil, could she? She must’ve felt something in her heart. And what did she feel? omg we totally need a novella to tell us that. If she did feel jealous, how did she HIDE IT?!?! I can’t hide jealousy. I could use a couple of lessons from her. Okies kidding.

I don’t see why Sorreltail can’t have her own Novella. Mistystar got one and Mistystar wasn’t much special before we read the Novella. Okay, she was special. Bluestar kind of tossed her away as a kit and Stonefur died. Well Sorreltail’s mother died and her brother died, too! And who said that only tragic characters got to have a Novella? A novella should just be interesting and who says Sorreltail’s novella can’t be interesting? She could fall in love with a ShadowClan apprentice and sacrifice her love for the sake of her Clan in the end (to go with the sacrifice theme). The possibilities are endless 😛

Well-a, I guess I’ve chattered enough. Haha I’m probably one of the few who want Sorreltail to get a novella. But in case she dooooes…. Wouldn’t Sorreltail’s Sacrifice be amazing for a title?

Bye <3
Keep faith and eat lollipops and love Sorreltail!

  • Cool article Sorzi (Sorzu?)! Sorreltail is indeed awesome!

    I named myself and chose my fursona after Redtail (this is why I have “tail” as my suffix) 😊 because he’s awesome and I love his fursona and I wish he had lived longer so we could explore his character more and his relationship with Brindleface. But without him dying (or in other words, murdered ) then we wouldn’t have had all that awesomeness in The Prophecies Begin. I might do an article about him some time. 🙂

  • Cool article! In my opinion, though, Sorreltail was a great character, she just doesn’t really seem to need a SE or novella.

  • Good idea! My one complaint however is the fact that we already have seen Sorreltail’s entire life, so what would the novella be about and when would it take place? One idea would be in StarClan, directly after her death. This would give us some insight on why she refused to be treated and died and would also show us how things were in StarClan after the great battle.

  • Hey, your right Sorreltail should have her own novel. I think Whitestorm should has well buuuuut i don’t know what it would have been about… any way i named Brackenstorm after Brackenfur and Whitestorm. i realy like your name as well it reminds me of Silverstream as well!

  • Nice article! Sorreltail deserves her own SE or novella. There are only few things about her in the book, and I really want to know more about her story. Her last moments make me so sad 😿……

    I think Shadowstar (Tall Shadow) also deserves a SE or novella about her, especially about her past, of how she became such a wise cat, or even about if she had loved any cat before 😼😶…… She’s so mysterious, yet cool and smart 😺.

    My name doesn’t share a prefix or suffix with my favourite characters (at least not intentionally 😉), but I do have a fursona that is close to Bluestar’s, as she’s always my favourite of the favourites 💙.

  • Cool article! I definitely agree and I think that Sorreltail should have her own novella—

    I wrote this article
    why am I commenting XD


    Great Article Sorzi Or Sorzu (Im CONFUZLLED. TOO MANY NAMES!)

  • Yes Sorreltail totally deserves a novella at the least. Another great article, Sorzi!! 😛

  • Yes Sorreltail should get a novella
    I think that Sandstorm should have a novella like about her as an apprentice (something like why she was mean to Firestar then became his mate ) well I think that there should be a novella on Sandstorm

    • I hadn’t thought about that until you mentioned it.
      But yes! Definitely give us a Sandstorm novella. Either about her beginnings and yeah why she was so mean to Firestar. Maybe even some moments from her point of view. It’d be cool to get an idea of her POV for some stuff.

    • Avatar Chocolatepaw (Chocolatestorm) who is sick today and is spending hours on BlogClan instead of doing schoolwork or preparing for her Bat Mitzvah in 5 days says:

      I love the idea of giving Sandstorm her own novella!

  • Yes I agree! It would be interesting to know more about her character! I named myself after Jayfeather, I love him so much 😛

  • YASS
    Sorreltail should totally get a novella!
    tbh i accidenlty though you were asking for a novella about you for a while 😛
    Which would be totally awesome of course 😛
