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

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

I like the way you do Hollyleaf, you give her some of that fluffiness that some books says she has but also gives her some lithe to her figure. To me I view her more as a medium-furred cat, her coat is neither long nor short (I think Lionblaze was said to have thick fur) and I imagine she and Jayfeather have some of their father's WindClan build.

Hollyleaf, I feel is misunderstood. Truly, I don't think Hollyleaf is to blame for what happened. The true problem I feel started with Ashfur, but he is also not to blame. The Erins were cruel to him and that cruelness ended up destroying a good cat but also led to a bunch of other problems. Ashfur should had been able to find somebody else (I still ship Ashfur and Whitewing and believe Ivy and Dove are their daughters with Birchfall filling in since Ash was too distant) and then perhaps his pain could had been kept to a low amount.

I believe most of this except the ash being dove and ivys dad. But he is relatedto them because ferncloud is birchfalls mom and ashfur is her brother. That also explains their pelt because ferncloud being their grandma and hey being gray makes sense that maybe her bloodlines carried and thats why dove and ivy are gray.

I don't care, Ashfur deserved the move on and this goes with my favorite pairing. Birchfall with Applefur, the Erins were cruel to mention her but then forget they ever made her and the two truly cared for each other.

Well to me,the Erins weren't cruel to him. He got an apprentice,he got his spot light and it was a good plot. Plus i think it's weird because everyone says that hes a loyal warriors and that he applefur, and her brothers (forgot there name D:) were friends when they were kits. And if Ashfur deserved to move on, the kits were born before he was killed and (I dont think I havent read that book in a month) he never visited them. (Sorry if im wrong.)

they were born after Ashfur died, Whitewing was pregnant and gave birth towards the end of Sunrise.

Awesome!!!:D
 
IF YOU HATE HOLLYLEAF READ THIS:

I have seen ALOT of comments saying that 'Holly killed Ashfur for no reason', or that 'HollyLeaf only killed him so he wouldn't tell the secret'. But thats not true.
Ashfur tried to KILL Lionkit, Jaykit and Hollykit when they where little. He tried to kill THREE cats for NO reason at all, they where innocent! Ashfur was dangerous, he was obviously planning what to do next. Who knew what Ashfur would have done to them if Holly wouldn't have killed him?
Plus, he almost went to the Dark Forrest believe it or not, he was lucky he didn't. 
Please stop thinking of Holly as a villain, or a insane murderer. She isn't, she killed a cat to save lives.
