Lynxflight shares why they think Squirrelflight would’ve been happier with Ashfur.
After reading Squirrelflight’s hope, I started to think, Squirrelflight would have been happier with Ashfur. Here, I’ve created a list with my reasoning.
First of all, let me point out the obvious. Neither of these cats are good mates. With Ashfur being obsessive, and Bramblestar’s lack of reasoning and understanding
Now let me get to my reasoning.
Section 1 – Helping the cats around the lake (not Squirrelflight being happy just yet)
This first reason, is that all of the imposter events in The Broken Code. This would have benefitted every cat around the lake. This isn’t really a reason she’d be happier but, it’s still something to consider.
Another great thing to mention is, Firestar may still be alive. We would have no idea what Hawkfrost would have done but it may have prevented it. Ashfur was involved in this plot. Currently we have no POV from Ashfur to prove how much involvement he truly had though
The last reason with this is, the kits’ true mother wouldn’t be revealed. Without Ashfur’s fire scheme, Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, and Jay feather’ s mother would have never been revealed. Also leading to our next reasoning on her happiness.
Section 2 – Avoided deaths
The first part in this section is Hollyleaf. With the paragraph above, you’d see the fire wouldn’t happen. Without the fire, Hollyleaf wouldn’t have gone into the tunnels. This may effect Squirrelflight’s happiness greatly.
Of course, this would call off Ashfur’s death with Hollyleaf believing he was her father, he would no longer be killed by her. This would also keep the clan unsuspicious of Squirrelflight also efffecting her happiness.
Section 3 – Brambleclaw
This will be a shorter section, but here we go!
Brambleclaw’s benefits would be,
– becoming deputy
– non obsessive mate
Brambleclaw’s disadvantages would be.
– always angry at something/somebody
– regularly refuses to talk to her
Section 4 – Ashfur
Next up, Ashfur’s advantages would be
– Loyal mate
– good pearsonality
The disadvantages of Ashfur
Section 5 – Conclusion
Squirrelflight would have been happier with Ashfur, because all the pain and loneliness Squirrelflight would have had with Bramblestar, wouldn’t happen. Maybe less fighting.
My conclusion is, if Squirrelflight went back in time, Ashfur should be her mate. She would have been so much happier.
