Brackenstorm lists some characters that should have their own super edition.

Art by Lithestep

Brackenfur – He was born in Into the wild and is still alive in a River of fire!!! It would be interesting to write his whole life. When he was stolen by Clawface and taken to Shadowclan. When he was an apprentice, how Graystripe was wondering off to meet Silverstream, and he was being trained by Fireheart. How he felt when Cinderpaw broke her leg. When Cinderpelt died, and how Sorreltail, Molepaw, Honeyfern and Seedpaw died! When he had feelings for Sorreltail, and more, but i think I’m gonna stop with Brackenfur and get onto the next cat. anyway he’s can be called Brackenfur’s Break ( just saying i couldn’t think of anything else for Brackenfurs Super edition name, pls suggestions in comments)

Needletail – Yet i haven’t read A vision of shadows :0 i know Needletail plays a big role. with Violetshine’s first person view you here a lot about Needletail. Sorry i can’t say much about Needletail. I can’t think of one for Needletail

Half moon – Lets begin with the start of her life: When she has a crush on Jay’s wing would be interesting. What does she think when Jay’s wing disappears? How does she feel about becoming Stone Teller (Teller of pointed stones)? And maybe a epilogue of what happens to the Tribe of rushing water when Gray wing and the others leave and move to the forest. Oh and what does she think about the lake when the group thinks it will be destroyed? What did she think when Jay’s wing nearly got attacked by badgers? Who was her mother and father? If there is a super edition about her, what will it show for Fallen leaves? Who discovers the moonpool (other than leafpool)? Thats it. Halfmoon’s… idk ca you give me some suggestions for names that half moon could have for her super edition?

Briarlight – ok here will be a really good suggestion. What does she think Knowing that her mother is not Clanborn? when she says ‘she’s gonna die, isn’t she? and i’ll never see her again, ’cause i don’t know the way to Starclan’ it makes me question, what does she think happens to her if she dies and not know starclan will be her new home? When she and Millie are sick. When she paralyses her legs. And what does she think about her name? Does she like it? Does she feel more grief for Longtail, compared to others? Briarlight’s disability.

Brightheart – what does she think of cloud tail at first? knowing that she is his foster sister? did she have a crush on Swiftpaw?How sad does she feel when Swiftpaw died? How scared was she of the dogs. How bad did she feel when she knew she has lost half of her face? What does she think of Cloudtail helping her when she lost half of her face? and how horrified was she when Bluestar, renamed her Lostface? How happy was she do have her name as BrightHEART instead of other names like Brightfur, Brightlight, Brightclaw?How bad did she feel when she saw Cloudtail being sooooooooooooo kind to Daisy compared to her, and then he questions how it is bad? what was it like being a medicine cat helper but mostly a warrior? Brightheart’s terror.
Thats it for her

Ivypool – what was it like being related to Firestar? what did it feel like to have skyclan, Kittypet and Shadowclan blood. what did it feel like knowing either you or Dovewing could have special powers but it was Dovewing not you! what did she think the Dark Forest would do to help her? Ivypools Rage ( XD i think rage is good because of the dark forest bit and the finding out that Dovewing is special not her!)

Cinderheart – What was it like knowing you were named after someone who died a brave death? i would feel proud! What did she think of Leafpool being so concerned about her. How did she feel when breaking her leg??? What did she think when Firestar says ‘From now on, you will be known as Cinderheart, in memory for those before you’? i would feel a bit down and go to the hug page, XD!What about the most interesting bit. Finding out that she is a Recarnation of Cinderpelt??? oh and i think knowing that is why she named her kits after dead warrior cats. thats another thing u can write about for the super edition. Cinderheart’s peace.

Thats it for this article
Best of luck and wishes ( for no real reason )

  • Half Moon would be a really good subject for a super edition. Hmm, maybe Half Moon’s Destiny or Half Moon’s Dynasty or Reign or something

  • Great article! I do wish there was a super edition for Half Moon so we could learn more about the ancient tribe and what it was like for her to be the first Stone Teller. Maybe it could be named Half Moon’s Trust or Half Moon’s Path.

  • The problem is, apart from Half Moon probably, you’ve listed minor characters, even if they are established characters, and it’d be difficult and an unexpected move for there to be a super edition about them. For Brackenfur to have a SE, he’d probably have to be absent from the main books for a while and go on a journey as, otherwise, it’s very hard to make something up from his past, considering what we know about the character this far. So, in that case, a novella would be more suitable. As much as it’s great to develop every character, in my opinion, it all comes in moderation and revolves around each other; it’d be very difficult to write an interesting storyline where each character has equal placing and screen-time compared to their peers. It’s like any kind of production: everyone has their roles, however big or small, and it’s a similar case with characters in a book. Or like a pyramid with the higher-priority characters at the peak.

    I’m pretty sure, though, an SE in the mountains was rumoured a while back, but I think there was something along the lines of there not being enough background info or the scenery being too sparser for there to be enough to write about. But I for one wouldn’t mind an SE set in the mountains partially w/somecat like Half Moon.

    Briarlight is another cat where a novella would be more suitable as, even though she’s quite an important minor characters, it would be a big struggle to write an SE about her, and I feel a bit bad for writing this, but with her being paralysed, it would be difficult to have her travelling around lots or to have that much action included in the plot. That said, you’d easily be able to write a lot about her inner emotions. A novella, which includes half and half between her life pre- and post-accident would be my best bet overall, though.

    But still a good article and a very interesting, reply-provoking read! 🙂

    • But many minor cats that we hardly knew got SE (Moth Flight, Hawk Wing, and most of the novellas were with minor or not even known characters)

      • Moth Flight and Hawkwing had the advantage of being unknown characters in unexplored periods (narrative gaps), though, so it’s easier to write about them, develop them, and what’s going on. Whereas Moth Flight’s SE was about the first medicine cat and Hawkwing’s SE was about SkyClan being driven out and migrating back to where they belong, it is highly unlikely a cat like Brackenfur, who is already long established in the series, is gonna be pushed into a starring role like that. Nothing important enough, imo, has happened in Brackenfur’s life that hasn’t been covered by anothther character already, and unless he becomes deputy or leader in the future, the norm would be to craft a fresh character into the main role. As mentioned above, Brackenfur could easily get a novella, but it’s improbable for him to gain an as important role as Moth Flight or Hawkwing.

  • Nice article! I definitely agree a lot of cats need super editions/novellas 🙂
    One thing though, I don’t think Ivypool needs one, we already got to have parts of books in her POV. But one on Half Moon would be so great! 😀

  • Although a Half Moon SE is a good idea, for those other cats, we’ve already seen pretty much all of their lives. Their SE’s wouldn’t really be that interesting, because nothing in them would be new information.

  • The only one I can see is Half Moon, which is one of the best ideas our there. The others, while I completely understand, just can’t picture what they’d be about. We don’t want a full 500 page book that’s all or mostly a re-telling of the main series but from a different POV. However, they made it work with Crowfeather, so maybe one of these would work? I just can’t see Ivypool, though. She’s already been a major character (though so has Squirrelflight, and most SE characters, and those seem to work), and i can’t come up with a good idea for her’s.

    However, I understand why you picked the cats you did. All your choices have valid reasons behind them, and while I can’t see them happening, I get where you are coming from.

  • I totally agree with you on a Brackenfur super edition. I know almost everybody in the community are begging for one. I have an idea on what it can be titled: Brackenfur’s bravery or Brackenfur’s courage

  • I agree with you on a Brackenfur super edition. The community has been begging for one for a while. I have 2 ideas for a name. Brackenfur’s courage or Brackenfur’s bravery

  • I agree that I would like to see a super edition for Half Moon or Fallen Leaves. However, a majority of these cats should probably have novellas or short stories (like Spottedleaf’s Honest Answer) instead. We already know what mostly happened to them in their lifetime, so a 400-something page book about their feelings wouldn’t be all that exciting (at least to me). Good article though 🙂

  • I agree on brackenfur and halfmoon and think there should be a super edition about a living dark forest Warrior of series 4 like crowfeathers Son or reedsomething lionblaze fought while he was at shadowclan in last hope. Great article brackenstorm! Miauw mrauw oink
