Okay so I got an ask about Dustpelt and Ferncloud and it made me think of an AU!
I call this: the kittypet queen AU!
A few moons after Bluefur takes her kits to RiverClan, ThunderClan is desperate for new young cats. They accept two curious kittypet sisters into the Clan. These sisters are named Lily and Blizzard, and they are renamed to Lilypaw (Brindleface) and Blizzardpaw (Frostfur) because I guess we’re SkyClan now.
Blizzardpaw gets Bluestar as a mentor and Lilypaw gets Stormtail, just like in canon. However, Stormtail detests Lilypaw because she’s a former kittypet. This causes Lilypaw to begin to feel like an outcast in her new Clan.
Due to her bright white pelt and kittypet heritage, Blizzardpaw is mocked by the others in the same way Cloudtail was. She becomes close with Whitepaw because of this and they have their warrior ceremony together, becoming Whitestorm and Blizzardcloud.
Lilypaw’s warrior ceremony is delayed because Stormtail never thinks she’s good enough. Resentment builds inside her and she seeks out cats beyond the borders.
Meanwhile, Blizzardcloud proves to the Clan that you can be great no matter what your origin is. This results in Tiny being accepted into the Clan and Blizzardcloud taking him under her wing, later becoming Shadestrike.
Lilypaw eventually becomes a warrior, but only after a lot of persuading on Bluestar’s part. She gets her warrior name Lilydapple and becomes the first warrior that Bluestar ever named :)
Timeskip many moons. Blizzardcloud and Whitestorm have a litter of kits (Cinderkit, Brightkit, and Snowkit, named after Snowfur). The kits view Shadestrike as a cool big brother and he views them as his little sisters.
Around this time, Cloudkit is brought to the Clan. Blizzardcloud takes him in without question, knowing how the others might harass him for being a kittypet.
Cinderpaw gets Fireheart as a mentor, Brightpaw gets Runningwind, Cloudpaw gets Mousefur, and Snowpaw gets big brother Shadestrike to help her out of her shell.
They later earn the names Cinderblaze (after Fireheart), Brightdapple (after Lilydapple), Cloudstorm (after Whitestorm), and Snowstrike (after Shadestrike).
A few moons later:
Oops! Looks like Lilydapple’s in a half-clan relationship! With none other than Stonefur from RiverClan as well! Bluestar is shocked to hear this, (after all, Stonefur is still her son) but promises not to tell the Clan. Lilydapple later has Fernkit, Ashkit, and Stonekit, who is named after nobody in particular (wink wink).
Fernpaw gets Darkstripe as a mentor, Ashpaw gets cousin Cloudstorm, and Stonepaw gets none other than Bluestar herself (she specifically requested it).
Their warrior names are Ferncloud (after Blizzardcloud), Ashfur (after Stonefur), and Stonemoss (after Mosskit).
There is also an added bonus! Now Dustpelt and Ferncloud:
- Aren’t related
- Aren’t mentor and apprentice
- Have a pretty normal age gap
I hope you like the AU!!

Tigerstar and darkstripe are close cousins which I think is grounds enough to take that drawing down lmao
I'm really sorry if this wasn't clear the first time, but the drawing isn't ship art. It's a drawing of two cats sitting there and facing away from each other.
I do not ship Tigerstar and Darkstripe.
If you want to talk about this further, please please please just DM me. If you do that, I'd be willing to talk further and take down the drawing :)
Otherwise, I'm not going to reply to any more of your anonymous asks. It's not a very effective method of communication imo and I really really don't want to get sucked into shipping discourse :(
