Same Shade of Amber -C.E.- by Mizu-no-Akira Same Shade of Amber -C.E.- by Mizu-no-Akira
Yay, here's my Contest Entry for the "Love VS Hate"-Contest, from :iconwarriorcatsfanclub:
We had to draw our favorite-character and our least-favorite-character. In this case Fireheart is my favorite and my least-favorite is Bramblekit. I took a scene from "Rising Storm" (good that there already existed a scene with the two of them, so I didn't have to create one). In the first series Fireheart is afraid that Bramblekit could become just like his father Tigerstar, 'cause they look so alike and Bramblekit bears no resemblance to his mother. This should explain why I chose the title "Same shade of amber" ... 'cause Tigerstar's eyes were amber as well ;P

The contest-rules say, that we shall write about why we chose these two characters as our favorite/least-favorite character, so here we go:
I like Fireheart/-star because of his character. He was always kind and tried to help wherever he could. As a leader he always made good descisions.I loved that tom... Rest in peace :/
Well... and the reason why I dislike Brambleclaw (in this pic BrambleKIT) is just because sometimes he's acting sooo strange. I mean...what the hell? The whole ThunderClan-camp is on fire, everybody heads into the same direction -away from the fire- ... who climbs on a goddarn tree? Bramble. For whom does Fireheart have to risk his life? Bramble. Who's always starting a fight with Squirrelpaw about some reaaaally dumb and unnessecary stuff... but later falls in love with her (which starts a complicated love triangle)? Bramble. ... And who meets up with his father and Hawkfrost to plan a trap and nearly kill Firestar?? Bramble. -.-
You see... I don't like him that much and I really don't like the idea of him bein the next leader of ThunderClan... but well, I have to deal with that ;P

I also dislike Bramble.
He INSISTED on starting quarrels with Squirrelpaw in the new Prophecy, as well as some of the other Warriors.
He met his father in the Dark Forest, along with his (PURE EVIL BISH BOI ) brother, Hawkfrost. As well as Ignoring Squirrelflight and becoming NOSY AND BOSSY! (Currently like Berrynose :/)
He also did not give a shet when Squirrelflight needed help so Leafpool wasn't exiled.

The only reason I have a grudge against Squirrelflight is because she didn't give a shet in her scrambled eggs if Bramble started quarrels with her and bossed her, became nosy, etc etc. If she had been with Ashfur, Leafpool's kits (I got spoils .-.) would've been more well hidden. I am PRETTY SURE that A DARK BROWN TABBY & A GINGER TABBY are N0T able to have A Orange tabby, Full Black, and a Light Grey Tabby.
With a Grey Tabby mixed with a Ginger tabby, the offspring would be likely.

(Other than dat, I love Warriors, and your artwork! :3 )

I'm not too fond of Brambleclaw either. I haven't read all the books, but I believe that he helps his (OBVIOUSLY EVIL) brother, yet leaves Squirrelflight for helping her sister not get exiled, and somehow, he's the victim.

Yet at the same time, I really hated it when Fireheart would loose his shit whenever he saw Bramblekit after Tigerstar did something. Like, what the hell?
Girl-of-Creation Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2017
I do not like how he dumped Squirrelflight just like that. Seriously, they've been through so much together, and he won't even try to understand her reasoning?
DuckInATopHat Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
It's made even worse when Bramblebutt falls for a cat who's ALMOST EXACTLLY like Squirrelflight, but listens to her rather than his own mate and deputy. But for some reason, people like Jessy better than Squirrelflight because Squirrelflight is annoying.

Squirrelflight deserves better.
Girl-of-Creation Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2017
Ikr? She's literally been in the books for like three series and knows Bramblestar so much better than Jessy. In my opinion, Jessy was irrelevant to the plot. And then Bramblestar said, "I could have loved you" and I was like, "I'M FLIPPING DONE."
DuckInATopHat Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! I fail to see how Brambleclaw was the victim in the Squirrel and Leaf incident. Him and Firestar are supposed to be the wise and selfless leaders, but I cant see them that way when Firestar is dreaming of his childhood crush and Brambleclaw is playing the victim when Squirrelflight went through hell and back for her family.
Girl-of-Creation Featured By Owner May 7, 2017
SAME! I understand he's upset thatshe ept the secret from him, but staying made for SEASONS? Wtf? Bramblestar of all people (cats, whatever XD) should understand wanting to help your family. Did he ever consider how painful it must have been for Squirrelflight? No, not until seasons later.
DuckInATopHat Featured By Owner May 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you. You seem like the only person who agrees with me on that.

I finally found someone who actually likes Firestar!!!!! Everyone seems to dislike him. I don't why.
OwlPower669 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2017
Eh, I like Firestar.
When I heard that he dies in the last series, I almost wanted to stop reading the Warriors series (because I'm only in series 2 :v)
But I'm continuing. :V
FairyPrincess666 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2017
Yeah I dislike him. I dislike Firestar because he is a Mary/Gary Sue. It's pretty obvious why he is a Mary/Gary Sue so I don't think I'll have to explain it. But it's my opinion and I'm respecting ur opinion 
De-Mythical-Luz-Wolf Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please do explain why you dislike him just because he's a Gary Stu. Because I have soo many reasons for encountering your statement.
FairyPrincess666 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017
He started out as a kittypet but already became a perfect warrior and followed the code even though he knows nothing about it. On his first encounter with graypaw he beat him, even though gray was a forest born warrior apprentice and firepaw was a kittypet. He broke the code many times but it was the sake of helping other clans. He got hardly any punishment because he acted like an angel. Firestar has saved the forest many times which is ridiculous. He found out about Tigerstar's plotting, he defeated scourge, he was a big part in the great journey and he was part of the 3 kin prophecy. Should I also mention that Thunderclan never lost a battle when Firestar was leader? Not only that but he was described as handsome and had 3 she cats love him (2 were med cats). Half of his kin is op as well. Overall he is just a massive Gary Stu
De-Mythical-Luz-Wolf Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well he was the first cat to start the series.
Not to mention the fact that makes him 
special I guess? I just kinda don't like it
how so many people hate him. Like. THE
first cat in the series to be hated on.

Just seems unfair honestly.
FairyPrincess666 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2017
Yes but he is overpowered. He doesn't have any flaws and it doesn't make an interesting character. Firestar is the reason people will read the first book and say "oh its a childish book. nothing special". The first series isn't really and young adult novel because of Firestar. Heck I read the books when I was younger and enjoyed them. Now the first series is boring but the Erins have done better in developing character so the new series' are interesting to read. 
De-Mythical-Luz-Wolf Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I personally thought the first series was
really good. The story after his was just
kinda eh afterwards. And it definitely
felt different once it reached the 
Fourth Arc. Dovewing was really annoying
and boring.
FairyPrincess666 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2017
I agree with you with Dovewing. Dovewing is the worst character in the book. Tbh, my favourite books are the special editions. They dont have those Mary Sue characters like Firestar and Dovewing (omg i hate dovewing more than firestar. firestar can actually seem like a normal character when you compare him to dovewing). My favourite characters are in the books after the first arc but i can agree that the story was kinda boring.

Lthompson864 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Eh, I guess I just like his story (the first arc) the most. Once it switch over to Brambleclaw's story it got really boring, really fast (with his Tigerstar's my father worries)so I stopped mid-way through the second arc. Brambleclaw's more of a Mary Sue than Firestar is, in my opinion. So, I guess I don't exactly like the character(I don't dislike him either) but I like his point of view. None of the Warrior characters I really like, but it's the story itself, and from who's point of view it's from, and in my opinion it's Firestar's point of view that's the best to me. But it's your opinion.
FairyPrincess666 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2017
Brambleclaw is also a Mary Sue but so is Firestar. I enjoyed both of their stories but i am not a fan of their characters. 
FairyBox Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes I agree. Firestar's somewhat disliking to Bramblekit/claw added a new side to him and that was interesting. I really don't like bramble claw becoming leader too. I think he needed a bit more time to prove himself. If anyone should have been leader that should have gone to whitestorm or graystripe. Those two would have made good leaders and what about Dustpelt? Why couldn't he be made deputy?   
TheGreatOmeyti Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
If Ashfur wasn't "depressed"..
He could've become leader instead of Bramblestar..
He could've been better.
Ashfur was a loyal Warrior too.

Brambleclaw and Hawkfrost planned to kill Firestar? :O
I always thought Hawkfrost planned it.. And then Brambleclaw killed Hawkfrost because of it.. @_@ Im soo confused.
ClockWork-Deviant Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hawkfrost did set it up and assumed Brambleclaw would participate in the killing of Firestar. But Bramble didn't want to kill his own leader so he turned on Hawkfrost and let Firestar free. 
Bramble may have plotted with his brother and father but he never wanted to hurt Firestar. 
Loveyheart007 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2016   General Artist
Thanks for explaining that to me ;w;
NekoSerenity Featured By Owner May 7, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I respect your opinions :P But I personally think the development between Bramble and Squirrel was good.

You're right, though- who climbs on a tree when there's a fire? To be fair, he was a kit and he probably thought that was the safest place- they haven't really seen fire before :3

As for the father and Hawkfrost thing... yeah that's a bit -.- I think he was too ambitious for his own good. But in the end, he ended up steering away from the "path of Tigerstar" and became a loyal warrior... he truly had GOOD intentions, unlike his brother.
