Hello, I’m Flickerflame! Today, I’ll be sharing this: Why Spottedleaf and Firestar should never have been made a ship.

History of Spottedfire: In the prologue of Into the Wild, Spottedleaf, ThunderClan’s medicine cat, received a message from StarClan: Fire will save the clan. This led Bluestar to let Rusty into the clan, and later on, fire did save the clan.🔥 Firepaw had feelings for Spottedleaf, and she did for him, but when she was killed by Clawface and ascended to StarClan, Firepaw was devastated. Spottedleaf watched over ThunderClan, Firestar and his kin from StarClan, such as guiding Jayfeather and reassuring Sandstorm. Later during the Great Battle, Spottedleaf gave her spirit life to save Sandstorm from Mapleshade, disappearing forever.

Thoughts: I think Spottedfire should never have happened. And then again, if it didn’t, Sandstorm would probably have been killed by Mapleshade. However, Spottedfire caused more trouble than help.

Reasoning behind my thoughts:
I’ll elaborate on what troubles Spottedfire caused:

Firstly, it led Sandstorm not to truly trust Firestar. She thought that Firestar actually had feelings for Spottedleaf and had never loved her. Even though Spottedleaf assured Sandstorm that she and Firestar would have never become mates, that could have been avoided if Spottedfire had never existed.

Secondly, it was breaking the medicine cat code. Medicine cats are not allowed to take mates, (Read Moth Flight’s Vision) but if Spottedleaf loved Firestar and survived, it would have caused a lot of trouble and the three would not have been Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Dovewing. The writers would have to focus on different characters which would be troublesome.

Thirdly, Spottedfire would have spoilt the whole series. Firestar would never become clan leader, would never have been able to prove Redtail’s death, etc. etc. Besides, it would be a major disruption to the series and we wouldn’t have the WC books we have today.

Fourthly and lastly, many YouTubers like Bright Guardian Akira would be wondering what would have happened if Spottedfire had never existed, which would be so popular it gets annoying. The Erins would probably just erase the topic from Warriors history, and it’s SUPER exasperating.

Thanks for reading this. Remember, this is MY opinion. I
