Lavenderfox shares their opinion on Firestar. Do you like this ThunderClan leader?
Hi peoples/cats! I am Lavenderfox! Today I will be talking about Firestar, and why I think he is annoying. Hear me out please, before you go ballistic and scream “FIRESTAR ISNT ANNOYING!!!” In my face.
Anyways, let’s get a move on! Warning!! Major spoilers for like, every book up until the last hope! You have been warned..
Reason number 1.
He is in literally EVERY book (up until the last hope I’m pretty sure). He is like “Oh hi! I’m Firestar who has been alive for 96 moons!” Yes I looked it up. Here is the exact writing: “Age:
Approx. 96 Moons (8 years) at death” don’t mind the numbers, I found it on a wiki. I know he is the main character, but he has been the main character for a while… longer than he should’ve been.
He is in like, every prophecy! Bud you need a break from prophecy’s. So, he gets a whole entire series to himself, then he gets to be the fourth cat! Seriously?!?! At first he is all like “Hi! I’m Fireheart and I’m apart of a prophecy! It is: Fire alone will save the clan! Yaaaay!!” And then a few series later he becomes the fourth cat! Like what? That’s sort of messed up.
He is almost always a hero. Don’t get me wrong, being a hero is a good thing! But when your heroic too much it gets annoying. So this is how it is: Firestar arrives in Thunderclan, still currently Rusty. He becomes Firepaw, and soon saves Ravenpaw from Tigerstar. Becomes Fireheart. Rescues Windclan, becomes friends with Onewhisker (think that was his name, I haven’t read the first series for a while lol). So more things happen, Bluestar dies and Firestar becomes leader. Yaay. Creates Lionclan with Windclan to beat Tigerstar. They win, Tigerstar is killed by Scourge. Soon after Firestar kills Scourge. Okay I’m going to skip things, this would take forever describing everything (sorry if I got events mixed up too, I haven’t read the first series for a while so yeah). Anyways he rebuilds Skyclan, stays a bit blah blah blah. See what I mean? Half of those events involve Firestar.
This ones short, but anyways my last reason is: He will sort of get in other clans space, help when not asked stuff like that.
So he legit takes charge when the clans are searching for a new home. Thunderclan still is more in the spotlight! He marches forward and says “Okay peeps! I’m taking charge! Nothing you can do about it..” it’s annoying.
Anyways, in conclusion I am trying to say: Firestar needs to give others a chance. Do you agree? I could probably list more reasons, but then the article would be super long. Byeee! Stay safe!
