Thornfeather defends Bumblestripe’s actions.
Hello fellow wattpadders! (Embix edit: Wrong site there…)
i’m going to defend bumblestripe.
He pressured her!!
Though she did feel a bit pressured,i believe it’s her fault. She didn’t make it clear in the first place. Let’s take an example. When Squirrelflight knew Ashfur’s feelings later,she cut a line between them and made it clear she didn’t like him. All Dovewing did was…nothing. just feeling that she doesn’t like him,and not talking it or speaking it out loud. not even making signs.Anything CLOSE to a sign is declining when Bumblestripe wants to go on a hunting patrol with her.Or just not meeting gazes. it’s obvious to US because we’re readers,and we know all about the tigerdove thing and all her feelings. But to THEM? no. Do you know why Bumblestripe is making his feelings so obvious to her? because he wants them to know about his feelings and make a yes or a no,because that’s reality. but Dovewing just knows his feelings,hiding her feelings,and that just makes Bumblestripe think ‘doesn’t she get it..?’ and makes it obvious more.
And all that makes Bumble’s companions think ‘…? doesn’t Dovewing get it? Why isn’t she saying yes or no when he is making it so obvious?’ and they start telling her about Bumblestripe’s feelings,then she feels uncomfortable,the Dovewing lovers call Bumblestripe a jerk and it’s a full circle again. If i was Bumble,i wouldn’t like being called a jerk because i made it obvious and the person i like doesn’t make it clear.
This is the reality. I actually get why Dovewing just stood there. I can see that she was being kind and didn’t want to hurt his feelings. but sometimes talking out is needed much. and it’s clearly not Bumblestripe’s fault for that.
‘Bumblestripe pressured her on front of purdy’s corpse!’
Ok,first let me correct one thing. He never pressured her. He asked her,not pressured. not every of his movement is pressuring and he just asked her out. period. and with the front of purdy’s corpse thing,i don’t deny it. But every cat has faults,even Dovewing, and please. it was AFTER Purdy died. Not when he was dying or right after dying. some time has passed, then he asked her. I know it was not the best time to ask her,but i don’t really think he knew she and Purdy was close,and it was after some hours(even though there are no hours in warriors xD) Purdy died it was ok to ask her,as the others seemed mourning but not too mourning as much as right after Purdy died. It kinda makes sense to me actually How he saw things.
He was mean to her when she left with tigerheart!
I know, and i’m not surprised by that. the main reason Bumble loved her was because he thought she was loyal and lifesaving. but instead of being loyal,he broke one of the most important warrior codes. i can see why he was hard to her on the raging storm.
Ok that was the end of my article! Have a good day!
