Hello! It’s Lynxpaw/claw with another article in my “Lynxpaw interviews” series. In my previous articles in this series I’ve been interviewing BlogClanners on who they think is best, Leafpool or Squirrelflight, and their opinion on SkyClan. But today it’s Dovewing vs Ivypool!
Let’s start!

I’ll interview:
Darkkit/iris
Hazelpaw/shine
Stripepaw
Sandpaw/breeze
And myself: Lynxpaw/claw

1. What do you think of Ivypool?
Darkkit: I think she’s amazing! I love how she can be really fierce, but kind and gentle as well.
Hazelpaw: I love her! One of my favourite characters. 🙂
Stripepaw: She’s cool and a good character, but she was a little bit whiny about the whole Dovewing thing. She and Fernsong are really cute!
Sandpaw: I love her, I think she’s really strong and determined, she still gets back up even when someone pushes her down. I like Dovewing a bit more than her, just because I’m a little sensitive to violence and her killing Antpelt for no reason kinda put a bad taste in my mouth.
Lynxpaw: Love her! She is my second most favourite character (after Hollyleaf).

2. What do you think of Dovewing?
Darkkit: To be honest, I’m kind of neutral on her. I never really cared much for her.
Hazelpaw: I don’t really have an opinion on her, but I’m leaning towards dislike. Something about her just throws me off.
Stripepaw: She’s great! I love her and I really relate to her.
Sandpaw: I love her! There are a lot of people who hate her and complain that she’s whiny, a Mary Sue, tries to steal all the attention, stuff like that. I would write long paragraphs of her, but I already have in an article I wrote, so I won’t write it all here. But I would say that she is kind, a wonderful mother, too hated and a cat with a mix of good and bad traits, but all of them fit nicely together that she isn’t an overly good cat or an overly bad cat.
Lynxpaw: I dislike her very much. She is my least favourite character; so whiny and I just don’t like her at all.

3. What do you think of IvyXFern, DoveXBumble and DoveXTiger? Is there another cat you ship one of them with?
Darkkit: I LOVE IvyXFern, it’s such a cute, healthy ship! I really hate DoveXBumble, I think Bumblestripe was an abusive mate. DoveXTiger, in my opinion, is slightly better than DoveXBumble, but it’s certainly not my favorite ship.
Hazelpaw: I love Ivyfern, it’s such a cute ship! I’m neutral on both BumbleDove and TigerDove.
Stripepaw: IvyXFern is really cute! DoveXBumble and DoveXTiger are overall really bad. Tigerstarheart is over protective of Dovewing, and doesn’t let her have time to herself, and Bumblestripe is Brumblestripe.
Sandpaw: I ship Ivy x Fern together, and I’m a little on neutral with Dove x Tiger! I will never ship Dove x Bumble in a million years, but I feel like Tigerheart was a good mate for her until he became leader. There’s probably the perfect tom out there for her somewhere…
Lynxpaw: I love IvyFern, but TigerDove is my least favourite ship. I actually like DoveBumble a tiny bit more, but I hate both. In the beginning of OotS, I liked IvyXTiger…

4. What’s your opinion of Dovewing joining ShadowClan?
Darkkit: I don’t like how she left her family and friends behind. But I guess she followed her heart *shrugs*
Hazelpaw: Could not care less. 😛
Stripepaw: It’s kinda sudden lol, but overall it was for the best.
Sandpaw: I think her joining ShadowClan is totally valid and okay! I mean, if you just had kits and your mate just became leader with his Clan about to crumble, wouldn’t you want to go join ShadowClan to help support him as he builds it back up? And think about the kits, too! It would be pretty hard to split them or have them all with just one parent in one Clan.
Lynxpaw: I think it was good. I don’t like how she left her family, but when she left, we didn’t have to see her in ThunderClan anymore. But, then we got a ShadowClan POV in Sunbeam…

5. Ivypool vs Dovewing, who is the best? Why?
Darkkit: Ivypool definitely. She’s such a complex, likeable character. I find her more interesting than Dovewing. (I don’t mean to offend anyone!)
Hazelpaw: I think Ivypool is better, it was so interesting reading about when she trained in the dark forest, I just like her and her personality overall much more than Dovewing
Stripepaw: Dovewing, though I like Ivypool as well.
Sandpaw: Dovewing! I explained a little bit about that above^^
Lynxpaw100% Ivypool! Dovewing is just no. Ivypool spied on the Dark Forest when her sister hang out with a ShadowClan tom. Ivypool should’ve been in the prophecy!

Thank you so much Darkie, Haxel, Stripe and Sand!

The results, Ivypool or Dovewing?:
Darkkit chose Ivypool.
Hazelpaw chose Ivypool.
Stripepaw chose Dovewing.
Sandpaw chose Dovewing.
Lynxpaw chose Ivypool.

So Ivypool won! Thanks for reading! If you want to be in one of my interview articles, check the Tavern! I usually post a link every two weeks or so.

Have a good day/night/morning/evening/afternoon!

Lynxpaw out! (4th October)

  • I don’t want to offend anyone with this comment, but whenever people compare the two, it kind of infuriates me on how they can talk only of the bad of Dovewing and give Ivypool all of the affection. And if it was the other way around it would infuriate me as well. They both have their flaws, and you shouldn’t hate on Dovewing for their flaws only because there is so much more to them then meets the eye, and I think you should also accept Ivypools flaws as well instead of ignoring them altogether. Overall, I think they are both amazing characters with great personalities, and I couldn’t choose between them even if I tried my hardest.

  • This is a really interesting article! I love how you actually interviewed other people to ask their opinion. To be honest, I prefer Dovewing because I find her personality more likable than Ivypool’s, but I know a lot of people disagree with me lol. If you see this, I’d love to be in the next article (:

  • Cool article! It was cool to see multiple people’s points of view 🙂
