Blossomfire15 shares their opinion on Dovewing and her position as one of the Three.
Hey guys, it’s Blossomfire15 here with another article! In this article, I will be talking about the reasons why I think Dovewing should be part of the Three & not Hollyleaf.🤗
(SPOILERS FOR POWERS OF THREE & OMEN OF THE STARS (AND A VISION OF SHADOWS))
1st reason: A great plot twist
One of the first reasons I think Dovewing deserves to be in the Three is that it made a great plot twist. We all love plot twists, don’t we?😉
I love Hollyleaf, but if she was part of the Three, there wouldn’t have been a big plot twist.
It would have made the story plain with no mystery & kind of obvious. With a plot twist, it made the story interesting, leading us on until we realized Hollyleaf wasn’t part of the Three.
2nd reason: Hollyleaf wasn’t exactly the kind of cat for the Three
Nothing against Hollyleaf, I love her like I mentioned before, but to be honest, she wasn’t exactly the right cat to be part of the Three.
When being part of a prophecy involving the welfare of all the Clans, you can’t be stuck to the warrior code.
Now yes, Dovewing did have a forbidden romance with Tigerheart(Star) & later joined ShadowClan to be with him, but I don’t mean to go all the way the other side.
Dovewing still loved her Clan.
I mean if you are part of the Three, you need to have a balance.
3rd reason: What powers would Hollyleaf had?
When I close my eyes to think of what power Hollyleaf would have had, my mind is blank. I just can’t think of a power that wouldn’t be cheeseball, that she would have.
I knew she wouldn’t have hearing powers or abnormal senses like Dovewing, cause that doesn’t fit her.
With the Three, each of their powers fits their personalities perfectly. Hollyleaf, I can’t find any power that she would have to fit her personality.
And with Dovewing, her power suits her personality perfectly just like Lionblaze & Jayfeather’s does.
4th reason: Having the ‘dark’ sister
What makes the plot twist great is that Hollyleaf murdered a cat(I mean that’s not great, but you know what I mean) & went down this dark path, faking her death & coming back, giving her life to save her beloved Clanmates.
If she was a perfect little character who was just part of the Three like her brothers, & didn’t crack, it would be a boring storyline.
(Not saying Dovewing is perfect.
If she never went down a dark path, it would be all ‘happy go lucky, no plot twist, no dark things that we want to cry over stuff’. And that’s really plain & boring to read about.
And lastly, the 5th reason: Dovewing was distant family but still had an important role
The last reason why Dovewing is the perfect role for being the Three, is that she is distant family. Not a close cousin.
She’s Lionblaze & Jayfeather’s grandfather’s nephew’s granddaughter. Not closely related!
She showed that even distant relatives can have a important role in something big. And I think that’s really great.
Like I said, I love both Dovewing & Hollyleaf equally, but I think it’s better that Dovewing is the Third, rather Hollyleaf, not out of favoritism, but it made the storyline better, & both characters stayed perfect the way they are.
Enjoyable characters to read about in our beloved Warriors.
And before I end this article, I’d like to say that comparing these two to each other just makes both of their characters less enjoyable.
Comparing is just the worst things we can do with fictional characters, like even Dovewing & Ivypool.
