Fidgetsplash shares why they don’t like Ashfur.
Hello! I’m Fidgetsplash and welcome to my first article! I hope I do well, and with that said, let’s just jump right in!
So, Ashfur. He did some questionable things, but still made it into StarClan.
If I’m being honest, I wasn’t too happy about that. Ashfur is one of my least favorite characters, so today, I’ll be telling you why!
1. His obsession with Squirrelflight
We all know that Ashfur wanted Squirrelflight to be his mate, right? Yeah. And Squilf wanted Brambleclaw. So she got Brambleclaw. And Ashfur was not happy. He held a grudge. I can get if he was heart-broken for, like, a few moons or so. But he held onto that grudge for SO LONG! It kind of annoyed me. He was a warrior and I get it. The cat of his dreams rejected him. But he didn’t have to go and try to kill Firestar, Lionblaze, Hollyleaf and Jayfeather. It was selfish. He wanted Squirrelflight to feel his pain, but he should’ve understood that Squirrelflight didn’t love him. (even though Brambleclaw/star isn’t much better, but we’ll save him for another article) I never understood how he didn’t get that through his thick skull. He doesn’t own Squirrelflight.
2. The plan with Hawkfrost
Hawkfrost and Ashfur. The dynamic duo. These two plotted to kill Firestar. Hawkfrost wanted Brambleclaw to be leader. Ashfur wanted Squirrelflight to feel his pain. Again, I feel like Ashfur was being selfish. He wanted his love interest’s father (who, mind you, is also his Clan leader) to die, just because she didn’t return his feelings. What kind of level of simp is this?? Of course, the plan backfired because Brambleclaw killed Hawkfrost and saved Firestar. Ashfur really thought killing his own Clan leader would make things better. Great decision, Ashfur, you’re a real role model!
3. The Fire Scene
Pretty much #2, but he gets another way to make Squirrelflight depressed: making her “kits” hate her and her sister and threatening to reveal the secret that Leafpool is their mom. Ashfur. What a guy! Really was glad when Hollyleaf killed him.
I’m not including anything from the Broken Code in this article only because I haven’t read the Broken Code yet, but really excited to get those books when they’re finished and in a 6-book pack.
So, yeah, Ashfur. Life started out alright, but went downhill so fast. He had potential, I’ll give him that.
Just to clarify, I’m not saying Ashfur is evil or anything like that, I just simply dislike him.
I would be interested in an Ashfur super-edition though. Get to see things in his point-of-view. Maybe then I’ll understand him better. But for now, he sucks in my eyes.
There are good things to him (one thing being we’re allowed to draw him with his beautiful golden locks), but the bad outweighs the good.
Thank you for reading my first article and I hope you enjoyed it! Bye!
