Bronzestrike wonders who should go to which afterlife.
Hello! I’m back with another article! Earlier I posted an article titled something like “Finding the first StarClan cat that deserved Dark Forest”. Then I got an overload of comments about later cats after the DotC, so this is a Part 2 where I go over the same topic except with more cats. This won’t include Code of the Clans, or Secrets of the Clans, because the latter was retconned (it contradicted DotC) and I’m too lazy to reread the former, which also had some mistakes, such as Squirrelflight having a vigil. Alright, I’m going to get into it now.
From Cloudstar’s Journey:
Redstar (TC), Birchstar (RC), Swiftstar (WC), and Dawnstar (ShC):
These are the four leaders that exiled SkyClan from the forest. I don’t really have much to say about these four. How did they even get into StarClan? Besides, Redstar said that each Clan can’t hunt on another Clan’s territory, as in, the invaders can’t catch the prey. This is his excuse. SkyClan can hunt in ThunderClan and ShadowClan territory really well. Dark Forest for them. Granted, they did all give Leafstar a life, but still, it was kind of like “see? totally meant to make up for it”. IF they really wanted to atone, how about sending Firestar the vision instead of leaving that to a cat who lives very very far away?
From Mapleshade’s Vengeance:
Appledusk is the mate of both Mapleshade (formerly) and Reedshine (last known). He is the great-grandfather of Crookedstar (Crookedstar’s father is Shellheart, whose mother is Willownose, whose parents are Appledusk and Reedshine). Time to explain his backstory. He was a RiverClan warrior who illegally had kits with Mapleshade from ThunderClan. When Mapleshade was exiled, Appledusk and Darkstar (Leader of RiverClan at the time) rejected her, and said it was her fault her kits drowned. So what were his crimes? Having a mate and kits from a different Clan. You don’t get Dark Forest for that. Bluestar was mates with Oakheart and had two kits, so if Appledusk goes to Dark Forest, so does Bluestar (She’s a StarClan judge).
Though he did have a big impact on the story, he had no real crime. All he did was banish Mapleshade kinda unfairly………. I’m going to say Oakstar is a lot like Lionblaze. They always let their feelings cloud their judgement. In Lionblaze’s case, it is usually anger. In Oakstar’s case, it was grief for his son Birchface. He didn’t exile Mapleshade for having kits with someone from another Clan; he exiled Mapleshade for having kits with Appledusk in particular (Appledusk accidentally pushed Birchface off of Sunningrocks. Birchface drowned). Personally, I think he deserves StarClan.
She let kits drown without trying to save them. Oh wait, she can’t swim so she can’t really save them… I’m going to say StarClan.
StarClan. He got a sign from StarClan, found out who the true father was (Appledusk), and reported to Oakstar not knowing how Oakstar would react. He never committed a crime.
From Goosefeather’s Curse:
I think he deserves the Dark Forest. He tried to murder his Clanmate, who was also his secondary medicine cat (Cloudberry was the head medicine cat of ThunderClan). Then he also tried to make Moonflower hate Goosefeather for hating Stormtail for trying to kill him, which I know isn’t against the Warrior Code, but it’s still wrong.
From Bluestar’s Prophecy:
He’s the head medicine cat now, but he doesn’t seem to care much about his Clan. My ropinion? Give him a break! He literally is stuck with having to see the future. He KNEW Pinestar would become the leader and defect back when Doestar was leader (I think). He deserves his spot in StarClan.
From Crookedstar’s Promise:
She deserves all the hate she gets for abusing Stormkit, but I don’t think that’s DF worthy.
That was all for Part 2! Comment if I should do Part 3 (also tell me which books to judge the characters from). Bronzestrike out!
