Hi there! I’m Nightpaw/wind and this is my first article on Blogclan and I will be talking about the good and bad things Bluestar has done. Also, Thank you to Whirlpaw for inspiration for this article with your article “Why to love and hate Clear Sky”.

Good #3: She sent Fireheart and Graystripe to bring Windclan back.

We normally praise Fireheart, “Oh, rescuing Windclan was so brave of him blah blah blah…”. But who sent him to rescue Windclan? Bluestar. It was her bravery that got Windclan back, not Fireheart’s. Fireheart and Graystripe just simply followed her orders.

Bad #3: She took her kits to Riverclan.

I know the snowstorm and Mosskit’s death was not Bluefur’s fault, but Bluefur didn’t even consider that she was putting her 2-moon old kits in danger. They were so little, and literally anything could have happened to them on the journey to Riverclan. And also, for so long, Stonefur and Mistyfoot didn’t know who their biological mother was.

Good #2: She allowed Rusty into Thunderclan.

This may not seem like such a big thing, but in the clans, there is extreme skepticism about kittypets. So letting a kittypet into the clans is something not every leader would do, even if it benefits the Clans. I know Rusty proved himself to Bluestar by fighting with Graypaw, but for many leaders that would not be enough.

Bad #2: She named Brightpaw Lostface.

This is one of the most cruel things Bluestar did. Brightpaw was scarred by dogs, and had half of her face blackened. To make things worse for her, Bluestar gave her the warrior name Lostface. Fortunately, when Firestar became leader, he renamed her Brightheart.

Good #1: She gave her life to save Thunderclan from dogs.

At the end of her life, when dogs were attacking Thunderclan, she bravely threw herself at the Alpha, causing both of them to fall into water. The other dogs followed the Alpha into the water, causing all of the dogs, and Bluestar, to die.

Bad #1: She kept apprentices from becoming warriors due to their belief in Starclan.

When Bluestar lost her belief in Starclan, she made Cloudpaw a warrior, but held Swiftpaw, Brightpaw, and more apprentices from becoming warriors even though they were ready. Swiftpaw thought that he wasn’t ready to become a warrior, and tried to show that he was ready by fighting dogs alongside Brightpaw. This caused Swiftpaw to die, and Brightpaw to get half of her face blackened.

Thank you for reading my article and I will write more articles in the future. Bye for now!
