Cloverheart wonders what the fate of StarClan is in The Broken Code.
Hi! Cloverheart here. This is my first article here. I was reading Darkness Within (not done with the book yet) and was curious.
SPOILER WARNING!!! NOTES OF WHO THE IMPOSTOR IS AND DARKNESS WITHIN!
Many of us know that StarClan has been gone for a while now. As the Impostor blocked out the view and communication within the current living Clans. Now the Imposter has been found, cats are questioning if they should really keep leaving as a clan. A group already left, “going for a wander” they say. Even Graystripe left! (If he dies I’m going to be so sad and mad at the same time). Evidence seems to have trapped StarClan in, well umm, StarClan. As shown in the Prologue:
“But even in the midst of her joy, worry managed to find her. She’d promised to watch over Squirrelflight until her sister could join her. But how could she keep that promise now, when a shadow had fallen over StarClan? As she stared at Firestar, fear pressed harder in her belly.
Her father sniffed again at the pool, where branches twined and snaked into the water. “”There’s still no way to see the Clans.”” he growled.” –
As we can see, a bunch of branches seem to be blocking the view and communication of StarClan, as we can obviously figure out Ashfur placed them there. Of course, they are only branches, right? StarClan can easily untangle them and see the Clans again, right? Well, why haven’t they then? SO many questions, so many unanswered. Will StarClan come back? Well, usually stories and with a happy ending, but will the Clans still live happily, even if StarClan doesn’t come back?
I think we should reunite more evidence. Even though I could only find evidence in the prologue, so let’s explore it a little bit more, shall we?
“Tallstar’s ears twitched. “‘It’s no coincidence that this has happended when the Cland have been breaking the code whenever it suits them. They’re the ones who have caused this mess.”” He jerked his muzzle toward the knotted branches obscuring the pool.
“”The code has been broken before,”” Firestar retorted. “”In worse ways, and nothing like this happended.”” He frowned. “”There’s only one cat responsible for this. We must find a way to fix it. If we don’t, the living Clans might be lost forever.””
Leafpool’s mouth grew dry. Was he right? Could this be the end of the connection between the lake Clans and their ancestors? And, if it was, how long could the living and the dead survive?” – Darkness Within page 4, prologue.
Even StarClan is worried, and we know the Erins, they always leave us in a Cliffhanger and so many questions not yet answered. Will StarClan be with us for the next journey through the series? I guess we will find out when we finish this series…
This has been Cloverheart here, and may StarClan light your path!
