[Sandstorm stretches beside Firestar who’s lying down]

Hello! I am writing this article for fun. It is completely opinion based. Please don’t say mean things in the comments.
Disclaimer: I am on the fourth book in A Vision Of Shadows.

Dustpelt and Ferncloud
Sink! I know these two do love each other, but they are easily one of the worst ships in Warrior Cats. Dustpelt and Brindleface have the same parents, making them siblings. Brindleface is Ferncloud’s mother. So, this makes Dustpelt Ferncloud’s uncle!!

Patchpelt and Willowpelt
Sink! I don’t have much to say about these two, except my main point on why I’d say sink. They are Graystripe’s parents, for those of you who don’t know. Willowpelt’s parents are Swiftbreeze and Adderfang. Patchpelt’s parents are also Swiftbreeze and Adderfang. These cats shouldn’t be mates!!

Firestar and Sandstorm
Ship! Okay, I’ll be honest, I was unable to find the first series, and I’ve only read A Dangerous Path. But, from the books I have read, and I do know they didn’t get along at first, they love each other. They even sneak out to hunt at night and have two kits, Leafpool and Squirrelflight. The only relation between them is the fact that they are mates.

Crowfeather and Feathertail
Ship! I only read Twilight and . . . The sixth book in that series, for the same reason I haven’t finished the first. From what I do know, however, these two would’ve made good mates. After Feathertail’s death, in the third series, Crowfeather still visits her grave when they go to the mountains to help the Tribe.

Crowfeather and Leafpool
Unsure! They do run away, and have kits. But after that, all interaction between them as mates is cut off. It made for some interesting conflict, but Crowfeather then becomes a mean cat towards Leafpool. However, in Crowfeather’s Trial, Crowfeather does say that Leafpool was his true love.

Crowfeather and Nightcloud
Sink! Crowfeather never loved Nightcloud. He was only her mate to prove his loyalty to WindClan. They did have a kit, Breezepelt, but Crowfeather doesn’t seem to love him, either. Crowfeather loves Leafpool’s kits, Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze, more than he loves Nightcloud’s kit.

Have a great morning/noon/night!

    5. Crow x Leaf sink!
    6. Crow x Night sink!
    Again amazing article 🙂

  • Great Article! However, just because Dustpelt and Ferncloud are related doesn’t make them “the worst ship in all of warrior cats.” They have a good connection, and meet each other’s needs! They’re also really loyal to the other, and meet a lot of the goals for a good relationship.
    I agree with the rest except Leaf x Crow and Feather x Crow! I’m a LeafCrow shipper 🙂

  • 1. Dust x fern unsure

    Great article!!

  • Great article!
    I agree with all except for Dustpelt x Ferncloud, because even though it’s kind of awkward, they still love each other and have been through a lot together! And I’m also unsure about Leafpool and Crowfeather.

  • 💮🌸Skye🌸💮 [Skypaw//Skymist//Misty Moon On A Fareway Sky//Has two fanfics going on! Check out Shinign Shadows and my newest: Shadowed Path!] says:

    DustxFern – SINK! He was her brother’s mentor and flirted with her when she was an apprentice…
    PatchxWillow – Yeah, sink. Siblings.
    FirexSand – Personally sink, I don’t think he was a very good mate for her. And they had this whole “boy saves girl who dislikes him and suddenly she’s in looove” cliche.
    CrowxFeather – Ship? I guess? It was the only love interest Crow didn’t treat like trash. (CrowxFeather – remove the “x” lol)
    CrowxLeaf – Sink! He treated her like trash later and disowned their kits
    CrowxNight – Sink! He treated their son badly and ignored her. Don’t mate with a cat if you’re going to ignore her!
    Great article!

  • The reason why Crowfeather started being mean to Leafpool, was because he was protecting himself. Leafpool was revealed to have been the real mother of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf, and Crowfeather’s former mate. When Crowfeather was asked if it was true, he said no, only to protect himself from being found out. Before the reveal, cats wouldn’t assume that they were mates if Crowfeather said hi to Leafpool, but now if that happened and he was super friendly to Leafpool, his Clanmates would take it as proof that he really was her former mate. All he’s doing is trying not to get caught.

  • Dust x Fern- Sink
    Patch x Willow- Sink
    Fire x Sand- Ship
    Crow x Feather- Ship

  • 1. Dust x Fern-Ship!
    2. Patch x Willow-Unsure
    3. Fire x Sand-Ship!
    4. Crow x Feather- Ship and Sink (bc i like the next one too)
    5. Crow x Leaf- Ship a little more than Sink but still both
    6. Crow x Night- SINK!!!!!!!!
    Just my opinion but 4 and 5 i’m debating about in my head because i’m reading Moonrise right now!

  • Okay, so some of the things I wrote in this article upset me now.
    I need to stop writing articles when I’m mad.

    Anyways, what on earth was I doing?! LeafXCrow is literally my favorite ship . . .
    This is definitely not my best article. I am good at seeing from both points of view in some things. I actually have no idea with FernXDust.
    Why was I putting ‘[name] and [name]’?!
    I was clearly out of my mind. Unfortunately, I do remember this being one of the three articles, the only one I finished, when I was very mad because of stress.

    I’m sorry for anything dumb I put. Thanks to anyone who read this article.
