Brightspark analyses Dovewing’s character
Alright, so you probably know Dovewing, that she-cat with one sister and special abilities who is a spoilt, selfish, and whiny brat………..?
First of all, when Dovewing was very forcefully told about the prophecy, she was barely an apprentice! She panicked for a bit, of course, but what would you do if you were told that you were part of a special mission that would save your country when you had just become a kid?
You would be startled and confused, of course.
This is exactly what was going through Dovewing’s mind.
Second, here’s a question.
If your sister got special powers and abilities would you…..
A. Be jealous but calm and at least try to express your feelings toward her and settle it?
B. Be jealous and cast your sister out completely and ignore her?
If you answered B, then you’re Ivypool.
Of course, A is hard, but Ivypaw didn’t try hard enough. Yes, she tried, but she just gave up.
Yes, she did spy on the Dark Forest in the end, but let’s think why she ended up there.
Yes. Spite for unwanted abilities that were obviously a burden. Ivypaw was young, but that does not excuse her actions in any way.
That is why Dovewing is a much better sister.
Third, Dovepaw only snapped at her sister because Ivypaw was purposefully infuriating her and taunting her, and frankly, Ivypaw didn’t deserve Dovepaw’s love at that moment. I mean, she purposefully pushed her sister over the line, and by then, it was towards the end of OotS, she should’ve been mature enough by then to understand that acting out of jealousy is never tolerated.
Fourth, think about how badly you would react if, you could see and hear as far as you wanted, and then could only see or hear normally. Now, before you say, “Lionblaze and Jayfeather didn’t react as badly as her!” Remember that Dovewing is much younger than them. I would probably react a million times worse than her.
Fifth, about the Bumble X Dove ship..
Bumblestripe is the guilty one here.
He basically pressured Dovewing into being his mate and having kits. That is already a toxic relationship.
And then the rest of the Clan also pressured Dovewing into mating him.
There’s such a thing as peer pressure. That is exactly what Dovewing felt.
She had good reason to feel creeped out.
Sixth, she is not a Mary-Sue.
For example, she is:
brags a lot
Which already proves she’s not a Mary-Sue, as a Mary-Sue is a perfect cat.
