Soooo... I've really no idea. Really, I got no clue how this came into existence. I was just fiddling with a little idea of mine, and suddenly I was writing more SquirrelxBramble drama. Honestly...
I don't know how much sense this ficlet could make if you haven't read any of my other ones; Predestined
, Predestined part two
, and I'm sorry - sequel
. But really, you could read this one just as well I suppose.
Unlike the other ones though, this fic was so impulsive it barely hangs together. I had long figured that if I was doing a follow-up, it would involve Squirrelflight + sickness, but halfway through, alternate darkxLeafpool hijacked the whole thing... like, what the fuck? Oh and thus I just slapped on some cuteness at the end to make it seem as though this was a bit more like a planned work, and not the botched mess I made it out to be. Doesn't even have a proper ending... Oups.
Though many factors may be weird or even foreign here, I stand by my take on this very peculiar Leafool. I've never liked her as a character; she was flat and boring, and a doormat everyone seemed to misuse. So if I were to have written her, with these awful keywords in mind, I decided to add some more flavour. Thus she now reveals a moodier, heavier part of her could-be personality. It makes sense, that a gentle person having experienced a lot of hardship, should in turn become more disillusioned and moody - nobody's able to stay bright and happy all the time. And there's a little irony to it all; in my first fic, I described Squirrelflight as weaker than she was made by the Erins, because all the hurts she's been through, has weakened her mentality. In turn, this has hardened Leafpool's, whose mind was all sunshine and kindness before shit went down.
There, I've made my excuses. Oh, and no Sparkpaw or Alderpaw in this story; did I ever mention how BORING I found their designs? Besides, the Erins appear to be readying Alderpaw for another round of medicine-cat drama, and I cannot handle another round of that... sorry, just... no. So I just pushed in my own fanbabies instead, lololol~
P.S. Sorry but I'm still not any more English-born than last I ever posted writing, please forgive me.
P.P.s. Icecloud is not dead in my canon. Nope.
