Feathertail - Crowfeather's Mate?
I am reading the sample of Crowfeather's Trail and in the prologue he may have mentioned actually being confirmed mates with Feathertail. The quote reads, "Crowfeather realized that he was losing another mate—not as terribly as he had lost Feathertail, but just as finally." He is referring to Leafpool as "another" mate, suggesting that he was actually mates with Feathertail first. Thoughts? HAWKFIRE98 17:59, August 23, 2018 (UTC)
Warn for spoilers! :) Leafpool's Wish stated that she was his first mate, but they were never truly mates. She was more of a crush to him than a mate. It later stated that they were never and never will be mates. Ravenpaw99 (talk) 18:07, August 23, 2018 (UTC)
I didn't think there were really any spoilers besides what's been discussed and listed on his page already. HAWKFIRE98 18:19, August 23, 2018 (UTC)
We have an entire arc that contradicts that information. They were never mates, and there are statements from the author that even state that they would not have become mates. It's a mistake and I'm not sure why they keep pushing that narrative. —Shepard ( 20:07, 8/23/2018 )
Some people consider this spoilers because it's written from an unreleased book. But regardless -- this may be an editorial team vs the original authors, since New Prophecy was written under the original 3 Erins and new books are written by an editorial team. (Kinda like Dovewing's eye colour and various other changes from the OOTS era to the AVOS era) We have word from authors that Crowfeather and Feathertail wouldn't have been mates regardless of if she came out of the mountains alive, and they stated that their romance was unofficial. I think he looks back on her fondly as a mate, however they didn't actually 'define the relationship' due to circumstances. —Echobelle ♡ you're such a dream to me. () 20:27, August 23, 2018 (UTC)
