Hollyfrost defends Spottedleaf.
hi! it’s me hollyfrost with another article and today, i will be defending spottedleaf and why she IS NOT useless,overrated or a mary sue! WARNING: this may contain spoilers for TPB,firestar’s quest and OOTS, read at your own risk. lets get started!
so about her getting in the way of fire x sand, well i mean she kinda did but i dont rlly ship fire x sand anyways,im more of a fire x cinder shipper,but fire x sand is still good. ANYWAYS, ahem, she wasnt trying to stop it,she just wanted firestar to be happy, this is proved when she dies the final time saving sandstorm from mapleshade (i haven’t read it but i know many spoilers for the last hope) she just wanted to make firestar happy as i’ve stated many times,she was also a very sweet,wise and loyal medicine cat. she wasn’t useless,if she was useless how would bluestar except rusty in the clan without the prophecy SPOTTEDLEAF received that said “fire alone will save our clan” that meant firestar would save them/ thunderclan. if she didn’t receive that rusty/firestar would not be in thunderclan and many,many, members of thunderclan would be not alive just because of the prophecy. she did enter his dream’s many times but just because she wanted firestar was safe (although he already was….) she just wanted to make sure he wouldn’t die. and in this scene:
“I know you love me, Firestar, but is that enough? Don’t you wish Spottedleaf were with you right now?” The question took Firestar by surprise. What would it be like to have the StarClan medicine cat at his side? Would she be able to convince him that he was doing the right thing? As he hesitated, the anger faded from Sandstorm’s gaze, replaced by a look of horror. “Don’t say a word Firestar,” she mewed. “I know what your answer would be.”
we all knew firestar truly wanted sandstorm by his side instead of spottedleaf,sandstorm was just…. *sigh* it was just a sandstorm moment,you know what i mean. it was a possibility firestar thought that, but deep in his heart he knew he wanted sandstorm instead of spottedleaf. no matter how much he loved spottedleaf he loved sandstorm more. therefore: spottedleaf isn’t useless, even if she wasn’t there for much time, and she is defiantly is NOT overrated, i will explain why:
i rarely see people say “spottedleaf is my favorite” actually, the only person i know who said that is my bestie swiftmorning/swift. characters actually need to be many people’s favorite to be overrated,she is defiantly more UNDERrated than she is OVERrated.
why she isn’t a mary sue:
many people think she is a mary sue but she is NOT!!!! just because she has many good traits and a excellent scent doesn’t mean she is a mary sue. look at dovewing! pure mary sue!!!! i mean, maybe she just smells so good because of her herbs! then she’s not a mary sue! just because she smells so good doesn’t mean she’s a mary sue.therefore she IS NOT a mary sue!
well wraps it up for my article,i hope this changed your mind about spotteleaf. anyways, see ya’ll next time!
