When We Start Killing... by Mizu-no-Akira When We Start Killing... by Mizu-no-Akira
Here we have some Hollyleaf- and Ashfur-fanart. :) Again: I never read the book in which this scene takes place. So please excuse me if there are some mistakes. I wasn't sure if this scene was at night or not, for example.
Anyways, I like how it came out :) I didn't want Hollyleaf to look like she enjoyed what she did... there are some pics on dA that show her with an insane smile or something like that. But I don't think this would fit her, as far as I could gather information about her character.
I believe when Hollyleaf killed Ashfur, she was just mad at him and full of fear and frustration. His murder seems to be an act of pure desperation.
I hope you like it. :) Mature-Filter isn't nessecary I guess, right? Again the title is inspired by a song I listened to, whilst drawing. You should totally listen to it on youtube or something. Here are some parts from the lyrics:



We've been searching all night long but there's no trace to be found
It's like they all have just vanished but I know they're around
I feel they're getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
And time is running out now
They're coming down the hills from behind

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created
I want to be awakened somehow

When we start killing it all will be falling down
From the Hell that we're in
All we are is fading away
When we start killing...
When we start killing...

I feel they're getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
And time is running out now
They're coming down the hills from behind

The sun is rising
The screams have gone
Too many have fallen
Few still stand tall
Is this the ending of what we've begun?
Will we remember what we've done wrong?

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created
I want to be awakened somehow

When we start killing it all will be falling down

Much better without making Hollyleaf look crazy. She's not evil or anything, nor crazy.

I'm not so certain about that. I don't know how far you've read so stop reading this if you haven't finished omen of the stars, but I think that's when this scene happens.






If she is truly evil, why does she come back to fight against the dark forest cats and eventually ends up dying there? I haven't read this part yet so forgive me if I'm missing an important detail or got something wrong. I wouldn't mind a polite correction either. So ya I only know about this thanks to spoilers on the Internet.

I don't think she is. She had a fair reason to kill Ashfur(He did sort of threaten to ruin her life, but that backfired when she confessed it herself because of all the guilt.), and I guess if you can feel ashamed for killing, you aren't really evil. And I'm not sure how far in the books you've read so unless you want a massive spoiler, I'm not saying anything else.

Ashfur felt ashamed for what he did, thats why he was allowed into starclan.

((ash threatened hollys life as a kit, then during the same scene, let her live and honestly they left on a good note - both upset at squirrel.)

hollys reason to kill ash was so ash wont "tell anyone anything" she tried to protect the secret - then, what does she do? Reveals the secret.

though a complete ass, ashfurs death was meaningless and should not have happened in such a violent and sudden way.

nothing can excuse what holly did, to ash, leaf and most of her family.

She reveals it because of guilt. If Ahsfur can feel ashamed and so not be bad then why can't Hollyleaf? After revealing it too, her guilt and fear drive her to run away and so she dives into the tunnels where she "dies". It may have been meaningless and inexcusable, but everyone does things they regret and you can't deny that Hollyleaf regrets her choice.

when she ran into the tunnels she was kinda just saying to lion and jay "lol your on your own suckers"

there is really no excuse for the level she went to

I might have to reread that part but personally I didn't interpret it that way. I saw it as her being unable to live in the clan with her guilt any longer.

Okay, i think Ashfur deserved to die. Reasons are: I really never liked him, and he was normally ShadowClan. But he went to ThunderClan for reasons..
forgot it. And Hollyleaf was a bit uh..
OK IMMA STOP BEFORE I START ARGUEMENTS AGAIN.

Ashfur... Shadowclan? O.o Huh? Did I miss anything? I always thought he was Fernclouds brother and they both were Brindleface's kits. That's why he hated Brambleclaw so much after he and Squirrelflight became mates. He always accused him of being just like his father, who killed his mother for his plan to allure the dogs. o____o' That'd make Ashfur Thunderclan.

I cant remember if he moved to Thunderclan from ShadowClan because, he was an elder ( I THINK ) in Shadowclan. So they may have just named another cat Ashfur XD

Ashfur was Ashpaw in ThunderClan, remember? He and Fernpaw led the dogs away from the camp.

In all honesty I don't think he should have, I mean I would have said even worse things and even worse actions if I were in his shoes but to be honest murdering him just because of the threats was too much. I'll admit that "yeah he said some really bad things" but killing him was sort of extreme... and this is my opinion but whatever. T_T

I like them both, but he kinda deserved it. He tried to get Brambleclaw kicked out, tried to murder three cats because their 'mother' was in love with someone else. He also trapped Firestar.

But I still don't agree with the fact that killing him was the answer to solve anything. It's just not my typical common sense lining. I would have been more happy if he was exiled like Darkstrip (sort of...) and then was killed in some sort of battle.

I imagined her emotionless. At that moment in the book, she was just doing what she had to do. The last words we read her say to Ashfur, were after he asked her if she was also going to try to change his mind. It was something along the lines of; 'No. It won't do anything anyway.'

Ashfur caused his own death. When Squirrelflight broke up with him, he got all crazy. I liked Ashpaw better! Anyways, back to my point! Squirrelflight turned him down blah blah blah, he could had looked for someone else, but NO, he HAD to be mates with Squirrelflight! So he stays there, moping around, feeling sorry for himself, and hating Squirrel even more until he decides to kill her "kits." So, really he caused his own death. If he hadn't tried to kill Hollyleaf,Jayfeather,& Lionblaze, then the secret would still be safe!

Personally, I think Squirrelflight should've gone to her "kits" afterwards, and tell them that she had only said that to save them and they really were her kits. PROBLEM SOLVED!

It said in the ultimate guide that Hollyleaf didn't mean to kil him. She only wanted to hurt him to keep him quiet not kill him but then he slipped and then he was dead. I think it makes sense because e was hurt and now he goes underwater and gets the breath knocked out of him
