I've noticed that too; there are very rarely any really well written ships (from what I've seen anyway). Most of them seem to be the Erins just wanting to throw in a bunch of forbidden romances randomly throughout the books... And the ones that do seem to make sense or are actually interesting seem to be short-lived (Squirrel/Bramble, Crow/Feather, Blue/Oak, etc).
Warriors doesn't have that many of those kinds of ships, but some of the ones that randomly pop up (like Firestar/Spottedleaf, Spiderleg/Daisy, Gray Wing/Storm, ect) are just like... What.
The "perfect" shippings are never that interesting anyways; when they just pop up out of no where and they're all lovey-dovey and cheesy it's no fun. The best ones are the ones that develop over time or have certain flaws. Otherwise (in my opinion anyway) they're no fun to read about :3
I just finished SkyClan's Destiny and I think Leafstar and Billystorm is my favorite next to Bluestar and Oakheart!Ahh, I'm glad you finished it!! I like Billystorm and Leafstar, and tbh, it's one of the better ships. They have their flaws, but each character supports the other and it's a balanced ship.
Well, Squirrelflight and Bramblestar are back together as of the newest arc (A Vision of Shadows comes out next year), and they had four kids of their own - Sparkpaw, Alderpaw, Juniperkit, and Dandelionkit. Unfortunately,
Juniperkit and Dandelionkit died. ;-; The preview in the back of Path of Stars answers the question that Kate's been tormenting us with for months- what happened to the two other kits. She had originally mentioned that they had four kits or something like that, but never told us what their names were.
It really doesn't make sense... they put more effort into the ships that are only for plot things, but the other longer-lasting ships, like Dustpelt and Ferncloud, or Cloudtail and Brightheart, are shoved into the background. And then we have Brackenfur and Sorreltail...which is an a++++ ship regardless.
