I don't understand why everyone hates Squirrelflight D: Look people: She did not use Ashfur. She loved Ashfur as much as Brambleclaw, but she just kinda fell more for Brambleclaw in the end. And she had to go through the pain to telling Ashfur and breaking his heart. That hurt her too you know. And she loved Holly, Jay, and Lion as if they were her kits when they weren't. But in the end, she lost them. But she gave the truth to them and Ashfur so she could SAVE them. She risked her own dignity for it, because she loved them like kits. And then, she still lost her mate, Brambleclaw. I truly can't hate her for going through all those stuff...
well I still hate her, she did say that she knew ash fur was falling for her and she couldn't fully return those feeling but wanted it to be true. she realised she didn't love him after he saved her from a badger...that annoys me greatly.
to be fair when I thought the kits were hers when I first started reading I was annoyed at her for leaving them with other queens all the time she hardly spent time with them.
but I've always hated squirrelflight even when she was squirrel paw
the fact that she had a go at brambleclaw for keeping secrets then went ahead and kept a major one herself also angers me.
True, she withstood a lot of pain, but some of it was her own fault. For example, why couldn't she just have told brambleclaw the kits were not hers? He would have understood, and more importantly, as her mate he deserved to know.
