Old Fantheories?
« on: November 15, 2015, 11:44:20 AM »
I was curious if anyone else had old fantheories that you loved but were destroyed by what actually happened in the books.

For me, when people were originally getting upset at the de-powering of StarClan in TPoT when around half of the series was out, i developed a fantheory that the prophecy didn't mean what we took it to mean. It says 'there will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws'. I took that to mean they had inherited the literal power of StarClan, leaving StarClan itself powerless for the time being.
I'm still sorta pissed that this isn't what happened, as it would explain one of the things that annoyed people the most about the last two series, and create an interesting tension, because if any of the cats allied themselves with the dark forest they could potentially bring the dark forest some of the power that once belonged to StarClan.

so what's your dead fantheories?

Is this thread for ones that ended up being confirmed too?

For the longest time, I had a theory that Onewhisker was Tallstar's nephew, since Tallstar seems to trust him so much and as far as we knew Tallstar never had a mate.  This is confirmed in Tallstar's Revenge, although a big deal isn't made of it; it's just mentioned in passing.

I remember back when TPoT was new, the big theory was that the three were actually Leafpool's kits. Then it actually happened and the whole fandom was just like "yep, saw that one coming" xD

I remember right after Bluestar's Prophecy, I also wanted Pinestar to end up as Firestar's father, because it would make Firestar and Tigerstar half brothers and I found that intriguing but then the Erins decided to just make Firestar and Scourge half brothers instead so it was like well good enough

By the way, this

would have been SO INTERESTING and now I'm disappointed something similar didn't happen as well.

Oh man, I wanted Pinestar to be Firestar's father as well!! Though I thought that after we knew that Firestar and Scourge were half-siblings (i think it was confirmed by vicky pretty early), so I was hoping they were all related xD

And Lavender, I think I had a similar theory on Hollyleaf's power... i know i had all of their powers figured out as symbols of StarClan's powers via my aforementioned fantheory, but all that writing is buried in a reaaaallly bad old fanfic i made and I don't feel like trudging through that to remember what I thought Hollyleaf's Power was

Awwww~ One big happy family! :) that murders each other woops
Actually knowing Jake though, I find him satisfying as a father to Fire and Scourge

There was a really silly one around right when the first series ended and the new one was about to begin, but there was only speculation. People thought that it would be about new elementally powered Clans, EarthClan, FireClan, WaterClan, and AirClan. This was very prevalent among Warriors roleplayers at the time, and several people set up sites in anticipation of new Clans.

Fortunately, that didn't happen, because it would have been weird. It didn't really have anything to do with the series The Last Airbender either, as this happened just a bit beforehand.

Pinestar as Firestar's father? Yeah, I very much wanted that as well...and then Bluestar's Prophecy came out. I mean, I'm excited that Jake is Firestar's father... but the idea of Firestar and Tigerstar being half-brothers is a very exciting prospect that I would love to write about..

Another newer fan theory is that Gray Wing and Stormfur are somehow related.. I don't know why I came up with this, but I very much enjoy the idea of Gray Wing's kits somehow having a bloodline that leads to Willowpelt and Patchpelt, and thus Graystripe, his kits, and his grandkits. When I see Stormfur, I'm somehow reminded of Gray Wing for some odd reason...

I also joined the "Hollykit, Jaykit, and Lionkit are the kits of Crowfeather and Leafpool" club and have been calling that for a very long time. It was too easy to figure out.

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?

I actually drew up evidence connecting at least two of the three to being Crow/Leaf kits; can't remember what I thought the other one was, but. Also, I remember distinctly wondering if Heather was also a Crow/Leaf kit and Crowfeather had taken her to WindClan so that Leafpool wouldn't have all four. Silly, but it happened.

I just remembered that when I first read about Pinestar leaving the Clans I for some reason assumed that he was supposed to be Firestar's father. I think fandom disagreed with me on that actually but I wanted it for some reason xD

I remember a theory I read about Ashfur being the three's father on a WCF post made in 2007 (or was it 8) a few months ago. They made REALLY longwinded family trees to explain Lionblaze's colours, and also Hollyleaf too bad Bluestar's prophecy didn't exist back then because Ashfur's grandpa was black and when Sunrise came out everyone in that thread was sooooo mad that Ashfur wasn't the father. Apparently they even tried vandalising the forums because they were so mad.

I remember a long-winded theory of mine (i....believe? it was mine.) that I hoped was true that happened around the time TPOT was new. When we thought Hollyleaf would have powers, and with all the fox symbolism and stuff that happened in the first book of that series, we theorized she could turn INTO a fox.
Obviously that didn't happen.

I thought the EXACT same thing when I first DOTC, well, okay, not exactly. I too think Gray Wing is Stormfur's descendant, but rather, from Silverstream's side of the family instead of Graystripe's. I think one of Gray Wing's kits is Reedfeather's ancestor, Willowbreeze's WindClan father.

I heard about the Crowfeather and Leafpool theory from an Erin chat back when Outcast had just come out. When someone brought up the theory, Vicky replied in her usual wink, nudge, don't give a direct answer kind of way, but looking back on it, I can easily imagine her wondering, "Oh God, are we really that predictable?" I myself am kind of ashamed for not picking up on it before LS.
