Leaflight wonders who Crowfeather will end up in StarClan.
Hi, it’s Leaflight! This is my first article, where I’ll be talking about a strongly debated topic – who Crowfeather will choose in StarClan.
First, of all, after the events of Crowfeather’s Trial, we can all agree that he won’t end up with Nightcloud. They will gladly remain friends.
Next, Feathertail. A lot of the different reasons why Feathertail isn’t Crowfeather’s true love is because of the age gap between them. It’s confirmed that if Feathertail lived, their relationship wouldn’t have worked out, since Crowfeather – Crowpaw at the time, was still an apprentice. Another reason why this relationship wouldn’t work out is because Feathertail walks in two skies, StarClan and the Tribe of Endless Hunting. If Crowfeather did choose her in StarClan, he would have to spend half of his time waiting for her to visit the Clan’s resting place. Lastly, Feathertail gives her blessing to Crowfeather, telling him to love other cats and to not be blinded by the rest of the world.
” ‘I thought we left you with the Tribe of Endless Hunting, ‘ Leafpaw meowed. Feathertail shook her head. ‘I walk in two skies now, with the Tribe’s ancestors as well as my own. But wherever I am, I shall never forget the Clans.’ She hesitated for a moment, then added, ‘Especially Crowfeather.’
‘He misses you very much. He chose his warrior name for you.’
‘Yes, I was watching, ‘ Feathertail purred. ‘I was so proud. He will make a great warrior.’ She bent close to Leafpaw again, her warm breath stirring the apprentice’s fur. ‘Tell him not to grieve. I will always love him, but there will be many, many moons before we meet again. For now, he must live with his Clanmates in their new home. He cannot be blind to the cats who are around him for all that time.” Starlight, pg. 264.
There’s also another quote in Twilight, ” ‘I’m a medicine cat!’ Leafpool protested. Her fur tingled with delight that Feathertail wasn’t angry – more than that, she seemed to want Leafpool and Crowfeather to be together – but she knew it was more complicated than that. ‘I wish I could make him happy, but I can’t.’ ” Twilight, pg.91-92.
These two quotes prove that Feathertail does approve of Crowpool, and that she does walk in two skies.
Now that we’ve established that both Feathertail and NIghtcloud would be unlikely choices for Crowfeather, this is why I think he’ll pick Leafpool!
First, of all, Leafpool made Crowfeather love again after Feathertail’s death. She healed his heart and made him start to open up to the outside world again. There’s also many instances of where Crowfeather still loves Leafpool even after they both return to their respective Clans.
In Crowfeather’s Trial, it states,
