Willowbrook takes a look at the cast in Crookedstar’s Promise.
crookedstar’s promise was the first super edition i ever read. i’ve read/i’m reading the warrior books in a strange way, as after the first series, i started reading midnight, but then went back and read some super editions, and the sun trail. now one thing i want to address, before continuing is that there are a few mistakes in-between the super editions. an example of this is in the allegiances of bluestar’s prophecy, it says that lilystem was crookedkit and oakkit’s mother, and they where in the nursery at the same time as willowkit and greykit. rainflower is no where to be seen on this allegiance. this is the first time the allegiances of a book listed the kits of a queen. while crookedkit was still in the nursery at the same time as graykit and willowkit, oakpaw was already an apprentice. now thats out of the way, lets continue on the analysis.
although she is considered to be a bad mother, i personally think that youtuber, bright guardian akira, did a good job defending her as a mother who didn’t want to lose her son, but by the time she knew he would stay alive, it was to late, and she didn’t want to admit she was wrong, so avoided him as much as possible. one thing i think people forget is, it wasn’t just rain flower who persuaded him to run away. most of the clan, except oakkit and brambleberry tried to avoid crookedkit. he only ran away, in search of the moonstone.
he was a strong cat who tried to stand up for crookedkit, as seen when rainflower went to ask hailstar to change his name from stormkit to crookedkit.
he was a brave cat, and i find it a little ironic that shellheart, crookedjaw, oakheart, bluefur, stonefur and mistyfoot where all deputy at one point of there lives, and where all related.
i think she was a wonderful she-cat and i was upset when she died. although she was part windclan, she was very loyal to riverclan. i have made an oc who is her great-great-great granddaughter, who is very similar to her. it was a shame she, along with her daughters, willowkit and minnowkit died, shortly after willowbreeze gave birth. as a reader, your meant to hate mapleshade for it, but mapleshade was only a cat who was wronged. she fell in love with a riverclan cat, and had kits with him. willowbreeze’s mother did the same thing, and every riverclan cat knew about it, but unlike mapleshade’s leader/clan, she wasn’t driven out for this, then rejected from windclan. really, mapleshade didn’t do it, she just knew it would happen.
