Whitepaw wonders when Bluestar will be considered ancient by the Clans.
So, this is Whitepaw here with yet another article for BlogClan and this time I will be pondering about when Bluestar will become ancient.
The elders may tell the stories of cats they remember from when they were kits or maybe stories that had been passed down to them by their elders when they were just young warriors. Anyway, these cats are deemed ancient. If some elder told Cloudkit the story about a kittypet turned leader named Pinestar that they remember from when they were kits, and now Cloudkit is Cloudtail the elder and why shouldn’t he have told Flamekit or Finchkit the story of the ancient Pinestar. And then when they’re elders they can pass it on and that’s how stories like Mapleshade’s reach the modern clans.
Anyway, back to the point. When will Bluestar turn ancient? Well, it depends on some things. What is a clan cat’s definition of ancient? For the sake of this article, I will say when nobody alive in the clans has seen the living cat face to face. There are probably some other definitions in the warriors world, but this is the easiest to write an article about.
So that means that Bluestar isn’t ancient yet because in ThunderClan we have Graystripe that was a warrior for a time under Bluestar’s leadership and Brackenfur, Graystripe’s apprentice, Cloudtail, and Brightheart that remember her and have probably seen her and Thornclaw who is actually still a warrior cause he refuses to retire. So there are a fair amount of ThunderClan cats that are still alive that remember seeing her in person. From ShadowClan, the only cat I can think of off of the top of my head that would remember seeing Bluestar is Tawnypelt. For RiverClan, there’s Mistystar and I’m pretty sure Reedwhisker would have seen her a couple of times, not that he remembers. And there might be others. I can’t think of anybody from WindClan off the top of my head or SkyClan that would know her either but there are still a fair amount of cats that have seen her but most of the cats haven’t. So after Graystripe, Mistystar, Brackenfur, Thornclaw, Cloudtail, and Brightheart die, Bluestar will be ancient if we are going by the ancient definition that I mentioned above.
That was a pretty short article so I’m sorry but it does give you something to wonder about. You guys can comment on when you think Bluestar will become ancient in the comments. Anyway, see ya!
