Theories on StarClan by Icepaw

Icepaw rates and makes several theories about what happens if dead cats die a second time.

Hello, BlogClan! Welcome to Warriors Theory! IcePaw here, today we are talking about…drum-roll please… What happens after StarClan! (This is my first article!)

If you didn’t know, when cats in StarClan are completely forgotten, they fade away from StarClan, but no cat knows what happens after. Today, I’m going to review some common theories, then brainstorm some of my own.

Popular Theory 1: It’s just done.
Some think that it’s “All over” after they fade. Like, not in existence anymore. Personally, I highly dislike this theory. I do respect it’s reasoning, but overall, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Yuck. I rate this a 2/10.

Popular Theory 2: Wandering Spirits.
This one is less popular, but I put it in here anyways. Some think that faded cats wander through the forest/lake, just wandering. I like this one a bit better then the last one, but I still think it would be lonely to just…wander. I rate it a 4/10.

Popular Theory 3: Reincarnation.
This is my favorite out of the fan theories. Basically, it goes like this. When a cat fades, they are reborn into a clan of their choice. In the Dark Forest, they are automatically sent to the clan they had done the most wrong too, so that they can learn compassion. However, if a Dark Forest Reborn is bad in their second life, they are just “ended.”
This has to be my favorite Popular Theory. The Dark Forest part makes sense! 9/10.

/////////////////// Pt. 2: Making Theories.

Note: Please rate these in the comments!

Theory 1: Curious Spirits.
This is very similar to Wandering Spirits, except that they are sent to an endless open space, with trees and lots of prey and lakes and rivers and things to do. They can also “cross paths” with other faded cats who they want. That would keep things from getting lonely.

Theory 2: Guardians.
So, faded cats would be able to select a kit or unborn kit and become their “Guardian.” This would make them linked to the kit, and they would have something to do, watch over the kit. When the kit dies, if it goes to StarClan, the “Guardian” would be able to go back to StarClan until the “kit” fades. Then the process would recycle.

That’s my article! I hope you like it. But remember… That’s just a theory, a Warriors Theory! And…….cut!

  • Btw I made this before I changed my purrsona 🙂

  • I like the reincarnation theory because it’s the most believable because I don’t believe when cats fade away their gone from of the face of the Earth they still exist in another cat.

  • I think the reincarnation idea is a really good one, especially since we’ve already seen it with Cinderpelt/heart! Personally, I do think the ‘all over’ theory is what the Erins intended (though it’s not my favorite either), especially since Cinder’s reincarnation seemed like a one-off.

    Rating your theories!

    Curious Spirits- 3/10. I think it sounds a little too similar to Wandering Spirits, and I personally would get bored once I’ve done everything.

    Guardians- 8/10. I like this idea a lot! The Guardian could still see Clan life, and wouldn’t get lonely or bored, since every cat’s life is different. They also get to meet their assigned cat in StarClan!

  • Great article! I personally think it’s the first one, just because that seems like the answer that is best supported by canon, but the others are so interesting! And hey, maybe it could be a chance for Spottedleaf lovers to see her again… 😛

    Great article!

  • Okay the film theory reference made me smile 😛 i like your guardian idea!! It’s super cool! Personally i think they’re just gone but the guardian idea would be amazing! The only one I’m against is reincarnation, mainly because we would never know it was the same cat unless there was a Cinderheart situation. It could also mean that like, Turtle Tail, Goldenflower, Rosepetal, and Mistpaw could all be the same cat… Idk i just don’t love it

  • I love the Curious spirit idea! Although it doesn’t seem general that this is what happens in my opinion, but I love the idea for it as it seems warming. It would be a great idea for a fan fiction 😀

  • I absolutely LOVE this article. I totally agree with you, Icepaw! I think I like the guardian theory the best and the DONE. DEAD theory is my least favorite. Sooo who do you think Spottedleaf could be guardian of?

  • Oooo I’ve thought about this a lot! This has to be one of my favorite articles. I love these theories, but I’m not quite sure which one I like the most. Great Job!
