    Sorry, Kate, I have another question. I’m hoping Squirrelflight and Bramblestar (both real and fake) will die in this arc, not because I hate them, but because it just feels right. But what if they both die at the same time? Then ThunderClan will probably take a vote and I’m hoping they will choose Ivypool as their leader, but who would you want to be it?

      I don’t know to be honest. I’m not sure Ivypool is ready. Lionblaze perhaps?

        Yeah, many think it will be Lionblaze and they don’t want that because he is to hotheaded, but I think Lionblaze has grown and became quite mature, so I wouldn’t mind a Lionstar!

        Thank you for answering all my questions! <3

        That makes sense to make Lionblaze leader, but he’s half clan…… Oh who cares, Firestar was a Kittypet… But I miss Firestar… Why cant leaders have 10 lives? :”'(””’

        Sorry, but how is Ivypool not ready?
        She’s a seasoned, matured warrior that literally risked her life each night with murderous hell cat’s for the sake of her clan.
        She’s shown to be quick witted in dangerous situations, and is an experienced hunter, fighter, and mentor.
        She had a good morality, reasonable and (unlike Lionblaze) is willing to cooperate with cats from other clans, but will make tough decisions.
        Lionblaze, on the opposite side, is bland and lacks personality, makes rash, impulsive decisions, holds grudges with cats from other clans, (Heathertail, for instance,) and was by far the least interesting perspective in Power of Three and Omen of the Stars. He’s just unbearably boring.

          Good point, well made. But I’m just not feeling it. I always think of Ivypool as a footsoldier rather than a leader…henchman rather than kingpin… Cinderheart would be in the running, or one of her kits, or further down the line, Bristlefrost.

            Bristlefrost is a little naïve at the moment, she blindly followed Bramblefake’s orders without hesitation before she finally realised something was off. TBC is really helping develop her character though, I would be very much on for Bristlestar, so long as she matures a little.
            Stemleaf maybe? He received a lot of attention early TBC, and is willing to risk being exiled – by the unpredictable Bramblestar, for what he believes is justified. He’s reasonable, sociable and productive, and doesn’t blindly refuse help from different clans, instead, tries to gather cats from different clans to all stand together against the possessor.
            Thanks for responding <33

              February 27, 2020 at 12:43 pm

              Yes, Stemleaf indeed. Although I think it’s time for a female leader. I’m rather looking forward to Squirrelflight as leader tbh. But we’re going to have to wait and see.

      “Is the warrior code worth a warrior’s life?
      Exiled after a battle that left all five Clans devastated, ThunderClan’s loyal deputy, Squirrelflight, must bring to light an earth-shattering truth: the identity of the cat ruling ThunderClan while wearing Bramblestar’s face. With tensions among the Clans at a breaking point, another battle looms, and even Squirrelflight may not be able to ensure Bramblestar has a body to return to. If he returns at all…”

    If anyone were to ask me who I thought Bramblestar’s Possessor is, I’d always say Sol. But now, I’m starting to suspect that Bramblestar’s possessor is related to Tigerstar I. Maybe the spirit in Fakestar is a son of Tigerstar I’s (whom Squirrelflight new about???) that Erin didn’t introduce us to until now? That probably sounds far fetched but…
    Clearly, Firestar’s and Tigerstar I’s bloodline is important. If you’ll recall, most PoV’s were from some cat related to either Firestar, or Tigerstar I, and I can’t believe that was for no reason. Plus, Shadowsight had a vision of Bramblestar (or was it Fakestar?) and Tigerstar II fighting. That tells me there’s something special Tigerstar I’s kin in TBC. What if that ”special” thing is Bramblestar’s Possessor being related to Tigerstar I? Aside from that, Kate revealed that if she were to come up with a title for one of the books in the series (I don’t recollect which one) she’d call it Tigerstar II’s Surprize. Well, what’s this surprize? The Possessor within Bramblestar being related to Tigerstar II (or some cat very important to him?)
    Finally, and most chillingly, I remember some Warrior commenting that ”there’s something ominous about another Tigerstar leading ShadowClan.”
    What if that somehow, is some sort of forshadowing, or omen? Personally I wonder if the rift between Tigerstar I and Firestar is reaching some new, never before seen climax…
    Well, that’s it for my Theories!

      Maybe Tadpole?
      And she would have called this book Tigerstar II’s Suprise, if I remenber correctly.
      I really like your theory, but I think it isn’t someone that is Tigerstar I’s kin, though I would like it. And I believe that the bloodline of both Firestar and Tigerstar will always be important, I just hope that finally there will come an end to it and we can have heroes with their own blood, instead of being remembered as Firestar/Tigerstar’ kin. Also, why does it always have to be kin of the previous main charachters?
      I’m really looking forward to the character with the most character development and think it could Berrynose, but who knows. I’m also curious about who the returning controversial character is.
      And finally I hope that Spiresight will get a bigger role!

    Cats who should die this arc:

    -Graystripe (despite him being my favorite warriors cat of all time)
    – Mistystar
    – Bramblestar (all 9 lives)
    – Some minor TC cats (or 1 cat)- maybe Shellfur, Leafshade, Honeyfur, Snaptooth…
    – Villian
    – Oakfur (is he still alive?)
    – Leafstar (she’s annoying)
    – Shadowsight (it would be good plot)
    – A beloved cat
    – Thornclaw

    I know there was a lot of death in AVoS but this arc is leading up to death somewhere.

      .Yeah, but…my heart be still if the Erins dare to do that…

      February 18, 2020 at 11:23 pm

      Well, I don’t know why I did this, but I made a 871 word story of Ashfur’s Desire from the Power Of Three. (Random title, lol.) I have no idea why I did this, but maybe to satisfy my need to make up a version of his POV myself. If you think I did good on this, please tell me because I have no idea if it’s good or not. Also I became lazy at the end, so.. 😅

      Ashfur’s claws dug into the ground angrily as he stared at Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather. The three of them were talking quietly, heads bent. He felt anger bubbling up inside him more fiercely than it had ever done. He suddenly got an idea in his head. When the time is right.. he thought, satisfaction warming his pelt.
      “Hey, Ashfur. Care to join Thornclaw’s hunting patrol?” It was Brambleclaw. Ashfur bit back a stinging remark on how he could join his own patrol, but he had to control his anger.
      “Alright,” he responded with cold politeness. He padded away, forcing his neck fur flat. He was about to launch himself onto Brambleclaw and rip him to shreds, but that wouldn’t work. Cinderheart and Birchfall were there. As they padded out of camp, Thornclaw turned back to them.
      “Okay. Birchfall, you and Ashfur will hunt close to the ShadowClan border. Me and Cinderheart will hunt at the lakeshore.” As the patrol split up, Ashfur scented mouse. He instinctively dropped into a crouch, putting each paw down carefully. He shot from the bushes, and scooped the mouse up to give it a killing bite to the neck. Once done, it hung limply from his jaws. He scraped earth over it hastily, opening his mouth to taste the air. He just detected the faint scent of cats from an earlier patrol. Ashfur sighed. If there was no prey to be scented, then there wasn’t any nearby. The rest of the patrol gathered around after a short period of time.
      “Prey is scarcer,” Cinderheart remarked as they all dropped their prey into a small pile. It contained two mice, a shrew, and a sparrow. They carried the load home, and Firestar hurried over.
      “That’s all you found?” He asked, surprised.
      “All that there was where we hunted,” Thornclaw said. “We only hunted by the ShadowClan border and larkshore. There’s definitely more.” Firestar nodded slowly.
      “I’ll tell Brambleclaw to organize a few patrols later.” Ashfur felt delight jolt him unexpectedly as he saw Squirrelflight and Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather. His plan could work. Just give it a little more time, a voice inside his head seemed to say. Ashfur took a moorhen and ate it, spitting out the feathers.
      “This is why I hate swallowing feathers,” he muttered to himself. “They’re so fluffy.” He looked up at the sky, his lips curling into a sneer. You can’t stop me from what I’m about to do, StarClan. The day seemed to pass by slower than ever. Finally, as the sun was setting, Ashfur knew what to do. He found some weird Twoleg thing that seemed flammable from the weird, green flapping pelt-dens, and he fumbled with it for a while, and to his surprise it lit on fire quicker than he supposed it too. He quickly lit the thorn barrier where the warrior’s den was on fire, and he knew Hollyleaf and Lionblaze had nests closest to the barrier. He hurried back around to the camp entrance, slipping in through the dirtplace tunnel, and he readied himself.
      “Fire!” He screeched, and immediately cats shot out of dens. The fire was spreading quickly. Satisfaction made his fur rise. He then realized Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Squirrelflight would make it out alive. He had to have another plan. He thought quickly, and then a deafening crack made him look up. A branch fell, and he barely dodged it as it crushed the barrier and led to safety. He looked and saw that the entrance and dirtplace tunnel was destroyed, and he knew that his plan would work. He stood on the end of the branch that would lead to safety, and Squirrelflight, Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather hurried over.
      “Ashfur! Let us pass,” Squirrelflight said.
      “No. Have you ever thought of the pain you caused me, choosing Brambleclaw over me? If I leave Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze to die, you will feel my pain.”
      “You can’t be serious!” Squirrelflight exclaimed. “That was so long ago!” Ashfur curled his lip menacingly. But then Squirrelflight took a deep breath and spoke.
      “It will not hurt me if they die. They are not my kits.” The roar of the fire crashed into silence as the world slowed. Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze stared at Squirrelflight, eyes wide with horror. Lionblaze seemed to burst with anger and fury.
      “You lied to us, then?” Hollyleaf asked, her voice frighteningly soft. Lionblaze turned away from Squirrelflight and to Ashfur.
      “Let us pass!” He snarled, unsheathing his claws. Ashfur jumped down, having no problem letting them through. He had a bigger secret; one that would for sure fulfil his revenge.
      As time passed, a quarter-moon later, Ashfur overlooked the stream at the WindClan border, thinking about his revenge. Satisfaction pulsed through him as he was about to reveal his secret at the Gathering later on, at dusk. It was perfect. Suddenly, the bushes behind him rustled, and Hollyleaf shot out, reaching for his neck. His screech of surprise was cut off short as she bit down, blood flowing from his wound. She then pushed him into the stream. He struggled wildly, and she watched, eyes cold, as he became tired and sunk to the bottom of the stream. I will get my revenge someday, he vowed to himself as darkness closed in on him.

    2. Can you give us a list of cats to suspect of possesing Bramblestar?
    3. Do you think Squrrelflight would make a good leader?

    Hello Kate, do you (or someone else) know how the Tribe of Rushing Water works with To-be’s? Do they get a mentor or are they just trained by all the prey-hunters and cave-guards? And does the to-be of a Healer get to leave the cave or not? I’m just curious about the way the Tribe works 😀

      February 20, 2020 at 12:30 pm

      Good question! I don’t know if we ever worked out an actual training process, it was so long ago I can’t remember. I think the training was less formalised and more shared – so no specific mentor. I think the to-be would have left the cave but less and less as they get more experienced and trained in the ways of the Healer.
