Too Close... by Mizu-no-Akira Too Close... by Mizu-no-Akira
Yay, finally I finnished this one :D Goddamnit. My computer got kinda strange, lately. It just died... it liked to do it alot, especially when I tried to work on my stuff.
Well, I felt like some Firestar x Spottedleaf, so I just drew the scene in which Fireheart receives his nine lives...and Spottedleaf tells him to give his love to Sandstorm,too. I love that scene :3 And I'm entering it in a contest from :iconunkowndestinies:
And uh by the way... for all of you that wondered: His eyes were green xD And then I put some light-and coloreffects into the picture and they changed to yellow :D Don't worry...they were meant to be green...^^
If you wonder:I named it "Too Close" because of the song by Alex Clare. I love it and it quite inspired me. Especially this part:


And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
There's nothing I can really say.
I can't lie no more, I can't hide no more,
Got to be true to myself.
And it feels like I am just too close to love you,
So I'll be on my way.

You've given me more than I can return,
Yet there's oh so much that you deserve.
There's nothing to say, nothing to do.
I've nothing to give,
I must live without you.
You know we're heading separate ways.

And it feels like I am just too close to love you...

-"Too Close" by Alex Clare


Hope you like it :3

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked, “Why?” The angel said, “Angels don't watch over angels.”
Twenty angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says its over. A blessing is coming your way.
If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain.
Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard.

I love them as a couple but...
they only knew each other for a few months
they talked once or twice
and spotted leaf was old enough to be his mother .-.
a great picture though!

Actually she was described as a young medicine cat.
We dont know Firestar's actual age when he joined, of course he was small, because he was a kittypet and had no training for fights of the sort. But that doesnt mean he couldnt be the same age as Spottedleaf. He got larger after moons and moons of training. But for all we know he could have been almost an adult when he first joined, he just had to start as an apprentice because he was no experience.

I think it does say in the book that he was the age of a young apprentice, he hadn't even been to the vet to be neutered before he joined ThunderClan. Spottedleaf is such a dear character, and I love her as Firestar's guardian and protector, but certainly not his lover. I won't say anything about the age difference, because there are couples in the series that I really love where there is a considerable age difference, like Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw, or Dustpelt and Ferncloud for instance. Firestar and Spottedleaf didn't really know each other for that long, and didn't really even get to know one another. They didn't have time to fall in love before she died, and I think it's weird when the books imply that they did. Firestar always had a soft spot for her when he was an apprentice, but I always got the impression that it was like a young boy having a crush on his teacher. They did have a special relationship, but I just never saw it as one of being in love. It's been made clear that Sandstorm is the only cat for Firestar, and she'll be with him even in StarClan. This picture is just so beautiful, and I think it does capture the special relationship they have. She's his guardian angel :)

Well, there is, in fact, time skips during the books before she finally dies. It is possible that maybe they talked more during those time skips.

That's true :) I just don't think that they actually used the time spent to get to know each other. Firestar, (paw, then) had a lot more to worry about, like focusing on his training and the looming threat of ShadowClan and Tigerclaw. And I'm sure that if Spottedleaf noticed that Firepaw had a crush on her, she would have done all she could to be kind to him, but keep her distance at the same time. You're right though, sometimes the time frame is never quite clear in the books.
