xD I want your guys' opinions on this because this has been bugging me all day.
I kind of just realized how insignificant the Three really were in the Last Battle. And I mean, that's the WHOLE reason they had their powers. FOR THAT LAST BATTLE.
I mean what, Dovewing only sensed the cats coming once they were RIGHT THERE, and poor Cloudtail had to pay for her lack of alert. Lionblaze got pinned down by Breezepelt and had trouble fighting Redwillow, both of which were not very strong cats. And Firestar... he did what, kill Tigerstar? BIG WHOOP. LionPAW could have easily killed Tigerstar when he had the chance! anndd Jayfeather. How, literally at ALL did he play a part in the Last Hope? HOW? He couldn't even save the one cat that needed him, his sister even!
Andd it wasn't at all bloody. In the Darkest Hour there's all of this bloodshed. Like, there's at least two paragraphs written on Scourge when he was dying, the part with him trying to growl but only having the blood bubble in the back of his throat was excellent! But Firestar? Hit by a tree, or wounds, or smoke, or fire. Brokenstar? He was dandy until Yellowfang walked up and snapped his neck like a stick. Hawkfrost? Same deal. Spotty was the only one who died a traditional throat-ripping death, and it was hardly traditional at all considering she was already dead.
The clans could have fought without the Three VERY easily. I wish that at least that like, the living cats couldn't hurt the dead ones. Like, therefore Lionblaze could use his power to his full potential and protect all of his clanmates. And Jayfeather could speak to his dead counterparts and cooperate like he and Honeyfern did by the Moonpool against Brokenstar and Breezepelt. And Firestar could have... well. I don't know, been ther herocat that he is. Annd Dovewing could have sensed them coming from the sky or wherever, and given her clanmates a thorough walk through of the battle.
And the dark forest recruits like Breezepelt would have had a better fight. Like, then when the clans realize hope is lost if Lionblaze wasn't there and the Dark Forest cats can only get at them and not vice versa, the loyal DF warriors could turn on them and really screw things up.
I don't know, that's just my opinion. What do you guys think?
