Hi! I’m Autumnshade and this is my first article.
I’m just gonna tell you why I think Hollyleaf had a power.
And there are four apprentices in the prophecy in
“The power of three” and “Omen of the stars”.

Do NOT read if you have not read “The power of three”, “Omen of the stars” (maybe), or/and “Hollyleaf’s story

Hollyleaf, said to be buried alive, had a power. In “Hollyleaf’s story” Hollyleaf thought Fallen leaves was a real cat, but Jayfeather literally proved that so wrong with his stick and the visions and stuff. But back to Hollyleaf thinking fallen leaves was a real cat, a normal cat wouldn’t be able to see, hear, talk to, and they probably would feel cold, or not be able to smell the dead spirit cat.

Hollyleaf was never able to find her power because her power was complicated and unnatural or she didn’t unlock it yet, her power would probably be to sense and communicate with spirits as if they were real cats.

More proof! Here’s a quote, not the exact one but it’s close to the real one.

“Can you please sleep here?” Hollyleaf asks, “it gets lonely here.” She added taking a glance at fallen leaves. “Fine.” He muttered.

Hollyleaf snuggled closer to fallen leaves, but his warmth wouldn’t come to her pelt. “Maybe I am imagining things,” she thought as she closed her tired eyes.

The warmth wouldn’t come to her pelt because fallen leaves is a spirit! And for YOUR information the powers of all the warriors (Jayfeather being a medicine cat) in the prophecy includes,

1. Jayfeather is a lean, mottled, pale gray tabby tom with blind, pale blue eyes. He was the power to walk in other’s dreams.

2. Lionblaze is a broad-shouldered, muscular, bright, golden tabby tom with amber eyes. He has the power to never get hurt, and win every battle.

3. Hollyleaf is a slender, long-legged, black she-cat with soft and long fur she has green eyes, and a bushy tail. She has the power to sense and communicate with spirits as if they were real cats (maybe?).

4. Dovewing is a pale gray she-cat with green eyes. She has the power to stretch her sense in a abnormal way.

And they all loose their powers except Hollyleaf, who dies in the battle.

That’s it for now! Bye, and if you don’t agree with me you can tell in the comments.

  • Great article! I never thought about that… But Ivypool and Blossomfall could see him too when they were trapped in the tunnels

    • I was thinking that too, and how during the great battle EVERYONE could see spirits, but I may be wrong.

  • I always thought that hollyleaf had a power ❤️
    Very convincing article!!!! Great job 👍🏻
    Mayb firestar is somehow related with the sisters???!!! Bcause hollyleaf is firestar’s granddaughter and she can c spirits… (JUST MY IMAGINATION 😊)

    Great article! Hollyleaf is one of my favourite cats and I completely agree

  • Great article! It’s a nice theory but probably not true.

  • Nice article, I’ve never heard of this theory before. It sounds kind of like the powers the sisters have, it be interesting if she were a decedent from them haha.

    • I think I’m the first with this theory tbh. Also im pretty sure starclan gave her the power (if she has it) like Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and dovewing.

  • Oooh this is cool and makes sense what if she is related to the sisters? Makes sense she couldn’t figure it out at first so she could have really have had a power

  • Heads up! My name is now Mintcloud NOT autumnshade
