Silverpaw wonders if Tawnypelt should’ve joined ShadowClan?
Hey guys! This is Silverpaw! Today I’m debating whether Tawnypelt should have joined Shadowclan or not.
To begin with, she joined a clan that was lead by the blood thirsty traitor, Tigerstar. Even though she didn’t join it because she wanted to be like her father, she still should have considered it. Tigerstar wanted to killed half clan cats, even though his kits are basically half clan. Why did she join Shadowclan when she knew that Tigerstar was evil? She knew what Tigerstar was doing is wrong. She is not a helpless kit! He tried to kill her own leader for Starclan sake!
Next, she joined because she wanted cats to know she was loyal, unlike her father. But, back then Bluestar made Fireheart deputy, even though he used to be a kittypet. Almost everyone hated him until, over time he proved that being a kittypet was not a bad thing. He soon gained everyone’s trust. Couldn’t Tawnypelt see that if she tried to prove that she was loyal harder, cats would start believing it? If she stayed like Bramblestar, soon everyone would trust her. I know she was only an apprentice but, she wanted to leave her brother and her clan to join Shadowclan.
In addition, Shadowclan only excepted her because she was their leaders daughter. In the second series they are still keeping a close eye on her. If Tawnypelt was to join at any other time, they would have said “No way you ThunderClan mouse brain!”
She also had a caring mother that didn’t let ANYTHING happen to her kits. Goldenflower is one of the best queens, in my opinion.
The team of Erin Hunter probably wrote this because they knew Shadowclan would need more warriors. In the second series (5th book) there are 22 Thunderclan cats, 11 Shadowclan cats, 12 Windclan cats, and 15 Riverclan cats. They should have less ThunderClan cats. They are going to win EVERY battle. Unless the allegiances are only the cats we know of because in the first book there are like 15 Thunderclan maybe? And 1 or 2 cats in the other clans.
In my opinion, Tawnypelt shouldn’t have joined Shadowclan. Let me know what you think!
