Welcome to Neon takes a joke too far
! This time, I'm taking a look at Ferncloud's heritage.
"Neon! What are you doing, putting this joke in the Characters? Put it back in th-"
*insert this music
here, red laser against blue background*
Alright, let's work backwards on this. Ferncloud had three litters; Spiderleg and Shrewpaw, Birchfall and Hollykit and Larchkit, then, finally, Foxleap and Rosepetal. Two of them reproduced. Spiderleg fathered Rosepetal and Toadstep, while Birchfall mated with Whitewing, who gave birth to Ivypool and Dovewing.
And who did Su reveal as the father of Ferncloud, again?
Whitestorm fathered Brindleface's kits
Yeah, it was Whitestorm that Su said fathered Ashfur and Ferncloud! I made a mistake in this when I thought Runningwind was the father.
What was the said mistake?
- My life choices
- Runningwind only has two pairs of ancestors
- Only one cat in his nuclear family is gray
Runningwind has only four ancestors which are pure-blooded
Runningwind only has his parents as his ancestors; Halftail and One-eye. One-eye had parents, Stagleap and Harepounce. They never had any kin stated, so I think it's safe to say Stagleap and Harepounce were full ThunderClan. Halftail has no ancestors mentioned at all. This makes Runningwind pure-blood.
But why is this important, again?
- Every cat gets into forbidden relationships
- Runningwind actually isn't pure-blooded
- Whitestorm's grandfather is Windflight, a half-WindClan cat

A PURE-BLOODED CAT
*insert words becoming black then being put into a full sentence*FERNCLOUD IS NOT A PURE-BLOODED CAT
That was...really fun to write. Anyways, let's get into the meat of this. Since we knew Willowpelt mated with Whitestorm before Missing Kits, here is what I'd originally calculate WindClan blood as, excluding Lionblaze and Jayfeather.
Windflight is half WindClan.
Thistleclaw is then a quarter WindClan.
Whitestorm is an eighth WindClan.
That makes Sorreltail and her brothers a sixteenth WindClan.
Cinderheart, Poppyfrost and Lilyheart 1/32nd WindClan.
Cinderheart's kits are 3 quarters or something WindClan. This is because of their grandfather Crowfeather along with Windflight. Because it's late where I am, I'm multitasking to get a shiny Stunky/Nidoran/Starly and math hurts my brain, I'm not explaining the Firestar part.
Poppyfrost mated with Berrynose. This makes Cherry and Mole 1/64th WindClan. They are also half kittypet.
Lilyheart's father-in-law, Cloudtail, is kittypet. That means Honey, Leaf and Lark are again 1/64th WindClan and quarter kittypet.
That was a lot of math.
NOW we know Ferncloud is half-WindClan. HOW many cats does that mean is half-WindClan?
Let's see...all her kits, Dovewing, Ivypool, Toadstep, Rosepetal...
That's 11 cats. So....that poses a question. How many ThunderClanners are NOT half-Clan?
A measly three.
That is; LionXFrost's remaining kits.
Everyone else is either; loner, kittypet, related to Adderfang or WindClan. And if what Vicky thought that Mapleshade might
be a distant relative of Bluestar's family, RiverClan joins the fray!
*messes up tabs while typing*
*panics and clicks on Oakfur's page*
Well, this wouldn't've been in the article if Neon didn't suck at keeping her mouse still. But I found this quote:"A blind kit saved by a one-eyed warrior. ThunderClan isn't what it used to be. Filled with kittypets and cripples and worn-out deputies."
It was just mainly Oakfur being a jerk and provoking Brambleclaw, but I guess on some degree, he's technically correct -- the best kind of correct!
What I probably learned from writing this is that ThunderClan has WAAAY too many non-clanners, and writing revisualisations are really fun.
What did you take away from this article? Do you think ThunderClan has too many half-clanners, quarter-clanners or sixtyfourth-clanners?
