Theories About A Starless Clan by Cricketleap

Brightmoon shares her opinions about what will happen next in A Starless Clan.

*SPOILERS! Turn back now if you haven’t read A Starless Clan River!* Meow! Cricketleap here! How ya doing?! I read A Starless Clan River and I started thinking about what is next for Frostpaw, Sunbeam, and Flamepaw (Nightheart.) I came up with some theories and decided to share them with you! Enjoy! (Tell me if you agree in the comments!)

1. Lightleap killed Reedwhisker
Just think about it! It all adds up. I think that when they were hunting, she decided to hunt on RiverClan territory to prove how brave she was (again) *eye roll*. While she was hunting, Reedwhisker ambushed her, maybe he thought she was a rogue or something (I just realized that I might have been spelling rogue wrong for my whole life), because Sunbeam heard the surprised yowl of a cat on RiverClan territory. Then, feeling even more reckless than usual because she was mad at Sunbeam, Lightleap picked a fight with or attacked him. That explains the growl Sunbeam heard. They fought and maybe the scrapes on his back came from Lightleap’s claws. But probably not. Then, as soon as the fight had started it was over. I think it was so fast that Reedwhisker hadn’t had a chance to claw her. I think that he hurt her paw or something. That explains how Lightleap was injured. I think that she accidently pushed him into the ravine and the fall killed him. Finally, she was so ashamed, and actually scared of being punished, that she didn’t tell any cat. Although, I could be wrong. It could’ve actually been a badger (Frostpaw notes how the scrapes on his back looks like badger claws) but I don’t think that Reedwhisker accidentally fell into the ravine. I think something darker happened.

2. Flamepaw (Nightheart) and Sunbeam like each other
It would be a good twist. Most relationships start out rocky and when they first met Sunbeam commented on his name and how it didn’t match him. He was offended, but later they talk again at a gathering and she understands him. This is the start of something new. Please make this happen Erins!!! I love romance, but only in warrior cat books. I especially love forbidden romance but I think I only like it because of the sneaking around and secrets and stuff. I don’t know.

3. Who the next leader of RiverClan is
I really think that Icewing could be the next RiverClan leader. Just think, Icestar. She has some good qualities that a leader needs. In the Broken Code, Mistystar kicks Icewing and Harelight out of RiverClan and they go to ShadowClan. Icewing understands ShadowClan from her time there and that means if she was leader, RiverClan and ShadowClan could hopefully be friends. Other options could be Mallownose, Mallowstar, or Minnowtail, Minnowstar. They have good qualities. Or maybe a younger warrior. I only want Sneezecloud to be the next leader because a Sneezestar would be amazing. Same with Brackenpelt, I love the name Brackenstar.

That is it! I hoped you liked it! I would’ve done what a starless clan means but by the time that this is out everyone will probably know. I cannot wait for Sky to come out! I hope I’m right! What is Berryheart’s secret plan? How does ThunderClan treat Flamepaw (Nightheart) after he picked his name? What will RiverClan do? So many questions, not enough answers. Bye!!! 🙂

  • Great article! Unfortunatly, NightXSun is a thing, and I kind of want Minnowtail to become leader. But i also want MousexMinnow to be real (from pot) as for the lightleap thing, i think it’s a red herring. I don’t think she killed reedwhisker

    • Lilypaw/pelt who can't wait for the new Owl House episodes and Christmas! Happy holidays! (A.K.A. Cricketleap and Brightmoon) says:

      You are probably right. He might’ve fell in by accident or maybe, just MAYBE, a badger killed him.

  • Lilypaw/pelt who can't wait for the new Owl House episodes and Christmas! Happy holidays! (A.K.A. Cricketleap and Brightmoon) says:

    It’s out! I just got Sky and I think that Splashtail might like Frostpaw, but if not, they will probably be good friends.

    • Lilypaw/pelt who can't wait for the new Owl House episodes and Christmas! Happy holidays! (A.K.A. Cricketleap and Brightmoon) says:

      I finished Sky and SPOILERS…

      Nightheart definitely is in love with Sunbeam and is trying to join ShadowClan and Frostpaw likes Splashtail. I HATE TIGERSTAR! I CAN’t BELIEVE HE TOOK OVER RIVERCLAN! Owlnose would have been a HORRIBLE leader.

    • Lilypaw/pelt who can't wait for the new Owl House episodes and Christmas! Happy holidays! (A.K.A. Cricketleap and Brightmoon) says:


  • Great article! I think I agree, it seems like Lightleap may have killed Reedwhisker. It would certainly be one heck of a scandal and plot thread! Or maybe the authors are misleading us. …Again.

  • 🎄☃ Christmas Lion who can't wait for our lord and savior to be born ☃🎄 ✝🦁 Lionclaw 🦁✝ (He/Him) says:

    good article why does Night X Sun have to be a thing its so annoying its just like Bristle X Root again

  • Firestorm (Storm with Fire at the Core) who is already getting into the holiday spirit and is excited for birthday also cake and cookies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!l says:

    Great article! I think Frostpaw will be the next leader because she’s the only one who can contact starclan, and she’s responsible and already sort of making descisions, and in the thingy where it says what the books about, it say the day she will help her clan may dawn faster than she could ever dreamed or something like that, so i think it means she will be the next leader
