Who do I prefer between Dovewing and Ivypool? Well my first-instinct answer would be Ivypool since Dovewing…
1. Betrayed her clan by taking Tigerheart as her mate

2. Was kind of mean to Ivypool when she was an apprentice.

3. Thinks meeting Tigerheart is okay

4. etc…

Hi guys it’s Leafpaw, today I will be discussing who I prefer between Dove or Ivy. When I first read the books, I really HATED Dovewing, but looking back, I never thought so much of Ivypool, who isn’t exactly an angel either.

As Dovewing becomes an apprentice, she has a first taste of her powers when she sees the beavers. She goes on the journey, but Ivypool is left behind much to her disappointment. When she comes back, she doesn’t understand Ivypool’s behavior about trying to be best. I mean, she definitely sees it, but doesn’t understand why Ivypool acts this way. She continues to excel in her training, which kindles more jealousy in Ivypool.

Finally, in Night Whispers, she starts secretly meeting Tigerheart and this is where I think Dovewing is the worst. She ignores the fact that she is breaking the warrior code and dislikes Ivypool for telling her not to meet Tigerheart. But then again, Ivypool is betraying her Clan as well by training in the dark forest. I think Ivypool is stupid and naïve for believing Hawkfrost, but her jealousy is clouding her of her judgement, since she wants to be better than her sister. I think Dovewing had no influence when meeting Tigerheart, so I think, on this side of things, Ivypool is better.

But, at least Dovewing never killed any cats. Ivypool killed Antpelt in the dark forest to prove her loyalty. I understand she wasn’t expecting this as her task, but she could have avoided killing him, since the warrior code says to have mercy for an enemy who is beaten. It wasn’t as if she was forced to kill him. Like I said, she is stupid and naïve for believing Hawkfrost and even more stupid when she doesn’t believe her sister. Common sense would say that Hawkfrost would be good, but she just looks away. Again, we understand the circumstances, but I still think she should have been cautious. Cats are in the dark forest for a reason. On this point Dovewing is better.
