Every time I go to Firestar's info page to see TLH, I see a different reason for Firestar dying.
Smoke billowed over Firestar when lightning struck the tree. SMOKE BILLOWED OVER HIM. Then, as the smoke cleared, her was dead.
So quit making up reasons, yo.
A few minutes ago I went over to the page and saw that somebody had assumed that Firestar had died because of his wounds.
Wait. WAIT. (I'm going to say this a couple of times...)
He could've easily died any OTHER time. Why does it have to be after smoke covers him?
Oh. 'Cause TIGERSTAR KILLED HIM.
Then why didn't he die right after the battle?
