Littlepaw shares and reflects on the series.
I read a lot, dare I say. The Warriors series is by far the longest books I have seen. So as time comes in, judgement can be a bit misguided. And now the Warriors is starting their 7th book series, a lot of characters are now either dead, have minor roles like Foxnose and Lioneye, and/ or seem to fade after the books are done (Like Squirrelflight). As warriors gets older, the value of a book seems to expect whatever we want for the fans. So…. I have a word to say and maybe some ideas to fix the mistakes that are here. I love Warriors. All Erin Hunter’s are my idol for writing. I have my own book, and editing is a pain…Oh wait…. Sorry everybody who wants to read it…. THIS IS HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!! Uh, my prototype was stolen by my former Stepmother so that she could hurt my father, who always liked my books. That is also why Shrewclaw is not with me. He works forever now. Working to fight for his life. Anyway…. back to the problem. I’m going to put a list of what I think compared to the fans that are you. Sorry if I sound rude to you all, but I think forever as well.
#1 Boring characters
Fans: For the fans, I see a lot of stuff about characters like Onestar and Breezepelt being hated on. I always here something like my friends saying Willowshine is dumb because she is just there. How I see it is like with other series, not knowing much about the characters, I even had someone say Ivypool killed Mappleshade! So, as it is, how can we fix it?
Me: I love Littlecloud, Breezepelt, Onestar, and Brokenstar. All seem to be uncommon and either hated or forgotten by others. I hear people say Littlecloud is bad because he barely has development. Ok, I don’t like Yellowfang. She doesn’t have a nice sense of pride as I see she could have. My point is I like characters that are here being a major role for their clan. Yellowfang is a major plot change for the story. And she steals spots for other characters to fill in StarClan! Don’t hate anything you want because they might not be used much. Populations have changed in the books, with clans starting to fill too much, a way to solve this is to make less characters, like in the first arc. Nobody remembers Crowfur or Greenflower from that, so you can focus on much more development.
What I see from this is the way people complain about the plot being the same, well, almost. I hear a lot of you say that the arc we’re at is boring because it don’t match what you want.
