Otterpaw explains their positions regarding Dovewing and Tigerheart
Hello! This is my own opinion, and please tell me your own thoughts in the comments! (Warning : Bad grammar and spoilers for most of the books)
She betrayed her clan, had kits with Shadowclanś deputy and soon leader, and left her clan for moons. You might be thinking : ¨Didn´t Leafpool have kits with Crowfeather? Plus, she was one of the three.¨ You are correct, but heres a huge difference between Leafpool and Dovewing. Leafpool knew their would be consaquences and was ready to take insults and such for her actions, and plus a Starclan cat, Warrior cats gods, Spottedleaf told her to follow her heart, and too Leafpool, that meant Crowfeather. So she was partly forced too because of Spottedleaf. But Dovewing? She made those choices by herself, and didn´t think about what would happen if she had kits with Tigerstar II. Also, being a special cat doesnt matter when it comes to loyalty and mates! I think that it was infact her fault for running away and all of that. I was super suprised that Ivypool forgave her, If I have to say, Im like a mini-Hollyleaf myself since from time to time, I like to stick to the code in a deep level. But never mind that, Kin doesnt really matter, even though in Darktailś series, it really did. Hawkfrost and Brambleclaw/star are kin, does that make them forgive each other for ever sin they made? No. Same thing for a lot of other cats in the books. But I also feel like Tigerstar II did kinda manipulate her, since he was randomly to a random cat he didn´t know : We´re friends, arent we?
But Of course, this is my opinion, but I hope this shows another side of the story. Dovewing also as I said, ran away to have her kits, might I add, a starting potion for panic.
Tigerstar II, also known as Tigerheart :
After all Dovewing code-breaking, she still gets accepted and forgiven like everything is back to how it was but sheś now in Shadowclan because her mate has power over every cat in Shadowclan for no good reason. If I was Rownstar, I would have chosen a different cat as deputy. Here are my reasons :
It might send the wrong message making your son deputy. Tigerheart was stubborn. Tigerheart left his clan for a few moons. Tigerheart had a mate and kits outside of his clan. He came back for no real reason but just to be leader. He brings random rogues, everyone is now going to trust for no reason. He makes rogues warriors. He demands for everyones trust the moment he gets his nine lives with a speech saying hes now the leader even though he left for a few moons and broke the code.
Those are all my reasons. Remember, these are only my thoughts, please don´t hate on it, but as I said before I would love to hear others and their opinions!
