For the Love of StarClan... by AmaranthFlamesoul For the Love of StarClan... by AmaranthFlamesoul
Before anyone flames me into a tiny charcoal briquette, hear me out.

As a member of two or three different Warriors groups on deviantART, I get a lot of fan pictures for canon- and original cat characters alike. I'm completely fine with this. I love cats.

BUT.

When I get 17 out of 22 pictures (or... 75 out of 123, if I haven't cleaned my inbox out for a while) from these groups that are of Ashfur dying... Ashfur being heartbroken... Ashfur going crazy... Ashfur glaring at some angry song lyrics... Ashfur trapping the idiot trio in the fire and/or laughing maniacally at/yelling at/sobbing in front of Squirrelflight... Ashfur lying dead in the water... IT GETS TO BE A BIT INFURIATING.

Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for Ashfur. Personally, I think Squirrelflight should have stayed with him rather than go prancing back to Brambleclaw. And I'll still favorite the occasional GOOD Ashfur drawing, though by now it's more out of appreciation for those artists who are pretty skilled at cat anatomy than because I like the theme. I'm just sick of seeing my inbox cluttered with at least three or four Ashfur-related pictures BY THE DAY.

Please. Please, for the love of StarClan, DRAW ANOTHER CHARACTER. Draw Stoneteller! Or Mousefur! Blackstar! SOME OTHER CAT BESIDES POOR ASHUFR, SO THE POOR TOM CAN REST IN PEACE AND STOP GETTING THROWN INTO FAN PICTURES DEPICTING OVERUSED THEMES INVOLVING HIM.

If you MUST do something related to Ashfur, try an original scene. Remember how he and his sister helped save ThunderClan from the dog pack in the original series? Remember that he used to be a sweet little apprentice? And an even sweeter kit? Remember when he was sane and NOT head-over-tail for Squirrelflight? Why not do a what-if picture of him hooking up with on OC?

Or you could write something about him - SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT INVOLVE SQUIRRELFLIGHT OR THE IDIOT TRIO IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM. Write a what-if where he goes on an adventure of his own during the first three books of the second series, or an Ashfur/OC fic where he doesn't die. SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT EVEN REMOTELY SUGGEST HE GOES NUTS IN THE ACTUAL SERIES.

This could also go for other fan-favorite characters: Brambleclaw, Squirrelflight (with Brambleclaw), Firestar, Hawkfrost, Bluestar, Oakheart (with Bluestar), Tigerstar, Scourge, Brightheart, Cloudtail (with Brightheart). PICK SOME NEW CHARACTERS. THE OTHERS NEED THE SCREEN TIME DESPERATELY.

I agree. I am so damn tired of when everybody's favourite characters are used for the same thing. Why can nobody think about the background or supporting characters, the less loved ones? I am getting so damn upset when looking for Bluestar or Graystripe AMV's. All they think about is Blue's heartbreak and horrible life, and the scene around Gray and Silver!

Oh my god people.
The creator didn't say stop drawing Ashfur, the creator said they would like to see less of the same thing, over, and over, and over. Learn to read a description, instead of getting mad because someone doesn't like the same characters as you. :/

I believe that I've only drawn 2 pictures of him out of the hundreds of pictures in my gallery (though one was crud), TWO. Unless you count just one panel of a comic where he gets annoyed by seeing how the fans overglorify his insanity.
Okay, I admit I've drawn him with the themes of him getting all pouty over being friendzoned and getting all angry and teary-eyed while he traps Squirrelflight in the fire, but now I've realized that there are way too many pictures of him out there, so maybe I should just stop with the microscopic amount of pictures (compared to the rest of my gallery anyway) that I have.

I think they should draw Ashfur happy. He has other emotions to and him being emo just gets sick afterwards.

............................................................SERIOUSLY, EVERYONE??!?!?!?!? *To the other comments who don't politely disagree with this* :facepalm:

I haven't even finished the first book in the ANP series, yet my favorite character of the Warriors series in general is Firestar in all honesty. Next to him would be Cloudtail, Brightheart, Ashfur(I honestly KIND OF like him), Firestar's kits Leafpool and Squirrelflight, Tigerstar, Tawnypelt, Brambleclaw, Oakheart, Bluestar, Cinderpelt, Dustpelt, Sandstorm, Yellowfang, Spottedleaf, Graystripe, and Silverstream and THEIR kits.....

.......Oh dear sweet StarClan I'm slowly becoming obsessed with this series for my own good. o__o

Gah why are there so many idiots in the comments? x.x I agree with you completely. There are SO many other things to draw, with other characters and even with ashfur in OTHER SCENES, yet if you're in ANY warrior group, ashfur related or not, you can always see like 10 pics of him in your messages. It's so annoying. x.x

Well, people draw what they want. People draw him going crazy, heart broken or else because is the most interest thing that happened to him. Okay, he helped to save thunderclan, and he did others things too, but you know, it's not a big thing comparing for what happened to him. If you don't like it, it's just don't search for ashfur pics in deviantart (or going in groups about ashfur)

i think there are a lot of pictures of Ashfur, but people can draw whoever they want to. Just because there are some people who are sick of Ashfur doesn't mean everyone needs to stop drawing Ashfur and draw other characters.

I do agree with you on the Ashfur fandom, im sick of getting spammed by people who even can't fucking draw [like myself] but I still think that people can draw whatever they fucking want, and if their favorite warrior is Ashfur, their favorite warrior is Ashfur.

I think it's great someone agreed so much that they used my stamp as an example in a poll - as an example at all! I was just venting pent-up frustration with it, so I'm glad it helped you make your point!

Personally, out of the cats in your poll, I think it's definitely a tie between Ashfur and Scourge - though I voted Ashfur, because I'm most sick of seeing him die from every possible angle. I say, let's at least do some Ashpaw! XD

And thank you for telling me you linked - even if you didn't post the stamp itself, it's always nice to know these things before more people start viewing/posting suddenly. ^^

No problem. I feel like the Erins totally killed Ashfur's character in the late series. I mean, how does he go from being a sweet, good-hearted guy to a complete nut job just because his girlfriend dumped him :confused: I love the series, but the Erins really need to work on their character development. Like Hollyleaf the hypocrite and misplaced aggression Breezepelt.
