So I was thinking about how little drama there is between the clans nowadays, but at the same time I was also thinking about Cinderpelt and Stonefur. So I made an AU.
- Cinderpelt was never meant to be a medicine cat
- She only became one because she was hit by a car
- In this AU, she is not hit by the car and after Greystripe she becomes deputy and then leader
- Due to Fireheart having to train Cinderpelt, he is unable to help Brackenpaw with his training and with Greystripe never being around he is drawn to the medicine cat den
- She chooses Brightheart as her deputy (she trained Hollyleaf)
- Mistyfoot is the one who is killed instead of Stonefur
- Stonefur becomes leader and hold massive anger towards Blackstar
- This leads to a lot of conflict
- He chose Blackclaw as his deputy because as Mistyfoot's mate, he thinks Blackclaw is the only one to come even close to understanding his grief
This diagram shows how the current clan leaders and deputies see and interact with each other:
I might build on this later

following that up with my new prophecy rewrite!!!!!!!!!! oh boy i would change a lot about this one
okay for starters: crowpaw and squirrelpaw are apprentices, brambleflower, tawnypelt, stormfur, and feathertail are all warriors, but squirrelpaw should be a warrior by now (she’s not because she keeps getting in trouble so they keep holding back her warrior ceremony i’m trying to fix any age gaps) and crowpaw should have been a warrior but he went on the quest
leafpaw is ferncloud’s apprentice and squirrelpaw is dustpelt’s
squirrelpaw is the most annoying little shit to ever walk to the forest ofc
the prophecy involves one chosen cat but someone else tags along from each clan (so stormfur, squirrelpaw, trans icon rowanclaw, and nightcloud/onewhisker all come on the quest)
ships that do happen: stormbramble, tawnyrowan, squirrelnight, maybe feathertawny?
ships that do NOT happen: bramblesquilf, feathercrow, stormbrook, crownight
bramblesquirrel would have a huge sibling dynamic because that’s literally what they should have had.
crowpaw’s “love” for feathertail would probably just have been best friends/platonic/MAYBE a little crush but not anything too big
squirrel and night would have been “besties” (if you know you know)
i think crowfeather would probably have helped nightcloud have children but they would have never gotten together so at most he would have been an uncle for breezepelt
whitewing gets apprenticed to longtail who is the deputy still of course
birchfall still gets ashfur
hawkfrost would have a much cooler arc because he had so much potential!!!!!!!!!!!!!
another weird take: hawkfrost wasn’t the son of tigerstar but mothwing was. they both grew up with sasha (maybe hawkfrost was adopted or just was close with them bc he never knew his parents). sasha brings them both to the forest ofc and moth and hawk develop a kind of sibling relationship. hawkfrost’s need for a father figure is so great that he agrees to join tigerstar in the dark forest and that would have made his character 100000x cooler
mothwing, tawnypelt, crowfeather, feathertail, stormfur, rowanclaw, and nightcloud all get povs.
feathertail still dies and crowfeather gets named after her, but out of platonic love not romantic love
cinderpelt still dies in the badger attack but sootfur and rainwhisker don’t. she wouldn’t get reincarnated in cinderheart and firestar would be shown greiving more
firestar becomes depressed after having to leave the forest because he already lost graystripe and has to leave his other good friend, ravenpaw, and his sister, princess, as well as speckletail and frostfur. he spirals more after cinderpelt’s death because of how close they were
deadfoot doesn’t die and becomes deadstar. mudclaw thinks he should be leader and leads a rebellion which onewhisker quickly ends. onewhisker remains the wholesome happy boy we knew and loved
leafpool and crowfeather happens but it’s not love it’s like a “one night stand” i guess.
stormfur joins thunderclan after feathertail’s death. the three are adopted by him and squirrelflight or maybe brambleflower? i haven’t figured out the logistics of that yet.
after longtail retires as deputy (because he’s getting old) firestar appoints brightheart as deputy.
ashfur and squirrelflight does not happen in this au ashfur has a crush on brambleflower instead and he grows bitter because brambleflower rejects him (forgive me im trying to play out the story without the sweet home alabama)
i can’t think of much else i would change?????? idk i will add on as i go
