Why I Hate Graystripe and Silverstream’s Relationship by Riplepool

Riplepool shares their opinion on Graystripe and Silverstream’s relationship.

WARNING: spoilers for “Fire and Ice” and “Forest of Secrets”.

INFO: this is my first ever article I am writing for BlogClan to enjoy (hopefully it gets published). My name is Riplepool, and I am from SnowClan.

Graystripe and Silverstream- I don’t really like their relationship. I mean, it’s just plain out dumb of Graystripe to break the warrior code JUST for Silverstream. I have even more reasons.

1. Silverstream died having kits. Graystripe is all like, “Oooh, Fireheart guess what? Silverstream is going to have my kits!”, and then Graystripe killed Silverstream. (Yes, it is counted as a murder… I think.) Graystripe and Silverstream got so close that- du du du du- guess what? Silverstream got pregnant, and died while having her kits. Graystripe is all like, “Oooh, Fireheart guess what? Silverstream is going to have my kits!”, and them Graystripe. Then Graystripe buried her between ThunderClan and RiverClan territory. Once again, I have my breaking the warrior code problem. TWO DIFFERENT CLANS. Get with the program people (cats)! Also, Cinderpaw/pelt felt so bad about Silverstream dieing that she blamed herself for her dieing. It’s not your fault, Cindy! Cindy! Believe! You’re a good medicine cat apprentice, take my word for it! Just- ugh. Cinderpelt, calm down.

2. The warrior code. I know I have said this- one sec- one thousand times, but Graystripe and Silverstream’s relationship breaks the warrior code completely. Meeting each other in “secret”, and having kits. KITS. Graystripe, I know you’re in love, but please- *sigh*- just stop. Speaking of the warrior code, Cloudpaw isn’t obeying it very well either, but this is about Graystripe and Silverstream, not Fireheart’s kin. (If you would like me to do one about Cloudpaw/tail please comment for me to do so! Thank you!)

3. Graystripe betrayed his Clan and his friend, Fireheart. Graystripe didn’t tell his Clan, (ThunderClan), or his friend, Fireheart about him meating Silverstream. Fireheart finds out anyways, and so does the Clan. The Clan finds out chapters upon chapters after Fireheart does, but at least they find out at some point. Fireheart finds out by using his “I’m a wild kitty now” senses and finds out that Graystripe had been near some willow trees, which only grow in RiverClan territory. One day Fireheart actually followed Graystripe, and found out FOR SURE. He could’ve told the Clan, but he chose not to because he didn’t want to hurt his friend’s feelings. The Clan found out when Silverstream had her kits. I mean, how could you ignore a she-cat giving birth on your Clan border? I would realize it.

That is why I absolutely HATE Graystripe and Silverstream’s relationship. If you don’t agree, that’s okay because this is completely my own opinion. Hope you enjoyed! ❤️

Fan Articles


  • Great article! I support Graystripe and Silverstream, but you DID make some good points!

    An article on Cloudtail, that will be something new OWO

  • I understand your point of view, but i disagree completely. As I’ve learned, we can’t always control our feelings. And I have probably said this before, but love is love. It’s the will to give up everything for someone, if it comes to that. Your world, your rep, your life, even. Consider: if the clans had never spilt up, and had stayed one humongous group, would you be in support of Grey+Silver? There would be no law against it since it would be all one clan. Also, is it just the charaters you dont like, or is it the fact they broke The Warrior code? Just some things to think about… still, this is a good article nonetheless.

  • Great Article! However, unfortunatly, the warrior code is broken so much with forbidden relationships that I just look at the relationship and shrug cause it’s that common.

  • At .3 I found a typo, ” about him meating Silverstream” …he’s not eating her, is he? Good article anyway.

  • Sooooooo, I can agree with you, I hated that Silverstream had to die and that it is all Greystripes fault, but I kinda liked the relationship. But i can imagine it going completely different if greystripe had never fell into that river at all!

    • Graystripe didn’t kill Silverstream at all! They were in love, and you can’t control that! Then Silverstream had kits and something happened and she died. It’s no one’s fau-wait, it is! STARCLAN WHY? WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?

  • Well, I agree, i hate their relationship as well, but think about what wouldn’t have happend without it: 1. Feathertail would’t be alive to save the tribe from Sharptooth.
    Without her, the tribe would’ve died defending themselves, then if the tribe was dead, their would be no story line to the stick Jayfeather had found in the lake territory. There would also be no story line to Power of three: Outcast. Thats when they go help the tribe.

    Anyways, Great article! Maybe a realationship on Bluestar and Oakheart?

  • Yes, i do agree, i hate their realationship aswell, but think of all the thing that wouldn’t have happend without it. Like for examples: 1. Feathertail wouldn’t be alive, wich meant that the tribe would’ve died protecting themselves from Sharptooth, wich meant that the stick Jayfeather found from the tribe wouldn’t make any sense or have any answers, wich also meant that the journey that Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Breezepelt, wouldn’t exist. So there for is my answer! I still DETESTE that pescky realationship but, oh well. Great Article though!

  • Well, I’m only on the third book but, I completely support this and ship them together, and the author only added it to spice things up a bit or else it’ll just get boring
