Thunderclaw wonders where SkyClan could live. Spoilers for AVOS!
(Embix edit: I believe this article was written before SkyClan settled with the Clans in AVOS 🙂 )
So for the beginning, Skyclan is my favourite clan! I can’t explain why. I just like it.
I think there were 3 possibilities of places where Skyclan could live:
Shadowclan has by far the most spacious territory and I think there is place for 2 clans but there are 2 problems in this case:
I. We all know how “friendly” Shadowclan is:)… so I don’t think they would give up territory to anyone. They still they gave up territory to Skyclan at the lake, but that was a prophecy. Starclan wanted Skyclan to return so they didn’t have much of a choice. And they needed Skyclan to defeat and take back their territory from Darktail and his “kins”.
II. The second problem will be that Skyclan hunts in the forest so it would have been pretty hard to learn a whole clan how to hunt in a different place(permanently)
2. The Highstones;
The Highstones are pretty similar to Skyclan’s sandy gorge and I think there are some mice hiding in there so prey wouldn’t be a problem. They would have water too(as we know from The Sun Trail map, the river continues and turns towards the Highstones)But there is a problem here as well:
The Highstones is a place of communication with Starclan so it would by unfair to belong to a particular(living) clan. It’s only one problem but it’s a HUGE one.
The same problem is in the case of Skyclan living in the Fourtrees Hollow, so I won’t make another case specifically for it.
Possibility #3: The territory between Riverclan and Thunderclan;
This possibility will stop the endless war between the 2 clans over the Sunningrocks;
Riverclan won’t be very affected because they will still have one of the river’s branches so they will have enough prey;
Thunderclan will have to give up territory as well, but they can expand their territory up to the Fourtrees. Riverclan can do the same. The border between the 2 clans can be the path that goes and encircles the Fourtrees.
But let’s look at the problems in this case:
I. Prey will be one of the problems for Skyclan because only a small part of their territory will be a forest so they will or learn to hunt fish(which is pretty difficult from what I know), or hunt in the open moor. This possibility is very unlikely not because it’s hard to learn(if you were used to a particular hunting method), but the founder of Skyclan itself, Clear Sky, chose the forest over the moor so I don’t think Skyclan will agree to this.
II. The second problem will be that the western part of the forest will be VERY crowded and Shadowclan would have been in advantage and I think the other leaders noticed this, giving them another reason to don’t give up territory.
I highly think this is the most convenient solution for Skyclan, but if only Riverclan and Thunderclan agree.
Do you agree with my possibilities? Do you think there could have been others?
I haven’t read all the Warriors books so there might be some mistakes in my logic.
