Alright, so we know Crookedstar lost Rainflower, Shellheart, Hailstar, Willowbreeze, Silverstream, Willowkit and Minnowkit, and also Bluefur's kits. He thought it was Mapleshade behind it all, but does Mapleshade really have the power to kill cats?
I know with Rainflower, if he helped her she might have lived, that one was her fault, but the rest I think they were just fate. Mapleshade made Crookedstar promise to her that he'd be loyal to his clan, and when he broke the promise, she made him think she was killing everyone off. But honestly, I think she was just trying to make him think everything was his fault, when in reality, losing your loved ones is just part of life. Crookedstar felt totally guilty, like "if I hadn't made my promise, they'd still be here" when really there was nothing he could do about it. Thoughts?
This blog isn't about all the cats that Crookedstar lost =.= Read the entire post. I'm asking whether or not Mapleshade was really behind it all, or if she was just trying to make Crookedstar think she was so he would feel guilty.
