Exploring underrated and overhated characters! by Brightpaw

Brightpaw takes a look at some of the overlooked characters from the series.

Ok, sup I’m Brightpaw and this is my first article. I’m new but I heard it takes 5-7 months to publish articles so it might not be new by then! I thought of doing favourite characters buuut… That would make a lot of people hate me and I do not want that to happen so soon. So I came up with this new series idea called: underrated and overhated, where i explore characters from those characters and try to give them some love. Disclaimer: these are mostly characters I like and don’t get why people ignore or hate them. Considering I only post one article every six months,then this series might take a while but I encourage other people to try this as well! Introducing underrated and overhated!…

UNDERRATED:

Featherwhisker: I barely see anyone talk about him yet he was one of the medicine cats most committed to his role. He carried the whole clan on his shoulders while goosefeather went crazy and he handles it brilliantly. He was so dedicated yet I see barely any recognition go to him. He isn’t even some background character or anything, he… Is… Amazing.

Turtle Tail: ok to be fair she gets some attention but being a main protagonist’s mate, you would of thought she would get more love. I have seen some Turtle Tail hate but not enough to go in the overhated section as she is mostly ignored. Turtle Tail was just my little ball of sunshine! She was so happy, optimistic and Turtle x grey,had development! She was just so cute!

Whitewing: best.. mother.. ever. Ok so she had really cute mothering moments in omen of the stars wheras Bramblestar didn’t talk to goldenflower as of new prophecy. Bristlefrost doesn’t talk to either of her parents as of book three of broken code. However, whitewing actually really cared about both her kits and the fact that she kept her warrior ceremony back so that birchpaw wouldn’t be the only apprentice. White x birch is just so cute!

OVERHATED:

Daisy: ok she isn’t useless. I see so much hate about her saying she only cared about her kits. But no, she is a protective queen and after she gets over her initial trauma with the badgers she cares about all cats. She made cats feel welcome and proved there is more to life than hunting and fighting. No she didn’t steal cloudtail. She said that he was welcoming but never tried to steal him from Brightheart. Of course cloudtail is going to be welcoming, he used to be a kittypet. And the fact she moved to the clans just to support her kits proved what a caring cat she is.

Millie: ok I might do a whole article on defending Millie. First of all, Blossomfall is a jerk “Oh No My MoThEr Is LoOkInG aFtEr My SiStEr WhO’s DrEaMs ( and legs lol ) WeRe CrUsHeD MoRe ThAn MEEEEE A fIt AdUlt” sorry about that lol but I have a point. At Blossomfall’s age cats aren’t really mothered an awful lot and this is Millie’s first real loss since joining the clans. And I can’t even reason with people who hate her because ” SHE REPLACES SILVERSTREAM!1!1!1! ” she sacrifices her whole life for a cat she barely knows and adapts so well who he with Greystripe. She is so selfless.

Ok that is going to be it for now, please tell me if you gained new admiration for any of the five characters I talked about. I will probably do five per article so tell me what you think! Please try this yourself but please credit me!

Bye from Brightpaw!

Silverstream sacraficed way more than Millie. Your right, Millie gave up her home to live with Graystripe. But guess what- she was only leaving behind her home, not any family. So it really wasn’t that big of a deal. But Silverstream… she broke the warrior code to be with Graystripe, went behind her fathers back to be with Graystripe, risked seeing Graystripe when she knew she might be cast out of her own clan if her clan found out, and died giving birth to Graystripe’s kits. So she practically gave up her life AnD her clan to be with Graystripe

Yeah, but the whole love thing just seemed so ‘love at first sight’ and kinda boring. It didn’t have any real depth, unlike MilliexGreystripe

Or she may have been leaving her family behind. Silverstream had no loyalties. He just cared about Graystripe and just… loved him saving him in a river and then wow, we have kits? Seriously…

She didnt give out her life to be with Graystripe. She preferred Graystripe to her clan, just like Graystripe did. It was Graystripe that, to care about his kits, moved to RiverClan! And she didn’t die protecting her kits! She died during birth! This doesn’t mean anything.

True but leaving your whole life behind blindly following one cat you just met is in my opinion a bigger deal than just meeting someone at the border. (Note: she never actually left Riverclan). I think silver x grey was bland and lacked development

I personally think MILLIE WAS OVERREACTING, and I really ship SilverxGray so, yeah. Interesting article though,and I agree with the Featherwhisker opinion.

I personally don’t think so considering her child was basically on kitty life support. I think blossom was overreacting tbh. She could of given her GRIEVING MOTHER some time to recover!

I think Bramblestar is both, a lot of people hate him and then some people actually like him.

I think Bramblestar is a good character. He isn’t perfect, actually he is the lest perfect cat in the world. But he demonstrated blood isn’t everything. He was ashamed of wanting to be like Hawkfrost wanted him to be, and tried to demonstrate his Clan that he could be a good mate, deputy and leader the same time of being born of Tigerstar.

He forgave Squirrelflight after all (I haven’t reached it yet but I suppose he did because he had kits with Squirrelflight, Alderheart, sparkpelt, Juniperkit, etc) and when he went to the ToRW in Outcast and Eclipse, he left Graystripe as assistant deputy!!! So noble 🙂 BramblexSquirrel is the best ship everrrr and I also ship him with Firestar, Graystripe and Leafpool

Whitewing is great! And Millie!! And Daisy! I have no idea who Turtle Tail and Goosefeather are, I haven’t read Bluestar’s Prophecy or Dawn of the Clans.
