Lilykit wonders what wouldn’t have happened if Leafpool had followed the code.
What would’ve happened if Leafpool was a good Medicine cat?
So if Leafpool didn’t love Crowfeather, what would have happened?
Well, most of us know that Leafpool is the mother of Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Hollyleaf.
Who’s the father? Most of us know it’s Crowfeather from WindClan! Leafpool broke two codes from Hollyleaf’s precious Warrior Code. Medicine cats can’t have kits! She had kits. Cats don’t have mates from another clan! We established that Crowfeather is the father. If she hadn’t fallen for Crow, She might’ve saved Cinderpelt and she wouldn’t have had kits. Lionblaze, Jayfeather and Hollyleaf wouldn’t have been alive and Lion and Mr. Jay Jay are part of the power of three! AND Hollyleaf is the one that. . . “shut up” Ashfur but if she wasn’t born, there would be no reason to shut him up.
Wait- Lion and JAY JAY WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN BORN AND THE DARK FOREST WOULD HAVE CRUSHED THE CLANS! Dovewing can’t do it by herself! Not only that but Leafpool would have to wait a longer time to get an apprentice- but after Jayfeather was a full medicine cat Leafpool went around serving as a medicine cat for moons which would leave poor old ThunderClan without a medicine cat. But If she hadn’t run off with Crow, MAYBE Cinderpelt could have been saved and be there when Leaf had to go. Eventually Alderheart will walk in the story. To be honest, his life would’ve been easier with Leaf as his mentor.
Leaf wouldn’t have felt so much hurt if she didn’t do anything.
“Hollyleaf, I’ve lost my kits, the one cat I loved and my calling as a medicine cat. Which do you think would be easier for me? To die, or to go on living?” Leafpool , Sunrise , page 310
(She went on living but somehow she became a Medicine cat again. If anyone knows how, type in comments below!) And Leafpool’s life would have been much easier if she didn’t do anything because she wouldn’t have not been a medicine cat for some moons, Crow wouldn’t always be so mean when they meet, she wouldn’t have the guilt for her mentors death, Jayfeather wouldn’t have been so mean but we all know he would’ve anyway because he’s. . . well. . . he’s Jayfeather. Hollyleaf wouldn’t have been so disappointed in her family and Squirrelflight, who was badly affected by this, wouldn’t have been affected. Her life could’ve been as smooth as honey but she went on the rocky road 😉
