ALSO since there are so many flowers now, idk if this is an idea you like, but some of them could maybe be pairs of cats, like to represent their relationship rather than any character themselves? idk though
I wouldn't mind doing that! It sounds like a lot of fun and interesting things to come up with. Some of them do represent a relationship instead of just one cat- I'd think the "true friendship" one that I have Graystripe under is also suitable for Firestar and Graystripe's friendship as a whole. It could also work for Ravenpaw and Barely's friendship!

I would also like to apologize for hijacking this... I'm just super in love with this idea and I think it's interesting.

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.

This is a really lovely idea! I adore flowers, so this sort of thing is always really interesting <3


Had a couple of thoughts as to which flowers might fit which characters:

307 zinnia // i mourn your absence
Thought this one might be fitting for Princess, as apparently one of the Erins stated that she still finds herself looking out for Firestar when she's out and about, hoping she'll see him again (one of the more heartbreaking authors' comments, in my opinion :c)

26 bellflower // gratitude
Littlecloud was my thought for this one; his inspiration for becoming a medicine cat was his gratitude to Cinderpelt, and subsequently ThunderClan as a whole, for saving his life :)

10 alyssum // worth beyond beauty
Brightheart perhaps? ^_^

FINALLY on a computer so I can respond to everyone!

@Lightning hm alright, then I think different cats should get different cards in that case.
I like Mudfur for healing. I originally put Yellowfang there as I felt she was a perfect fit, though there being so much more to her character maybe there is a flower thats a lot more fitting for her.

Hm... I might rather Shadow gets this in that case, mainly because I'm not sure if we should do the SkyClan cats ( though it has been said we'll see them again in the sixth series so who knows... )

Cold-hearted is very interesting for Tallstar. I like it.

For ambition I personally like Clear Sky more simply because he's more major than Thistleclaw but it's so fitting for Thistleclaw... I'm torn here. lol

I LOVE Half Moon for waiting. like omg aw </3

@Jinglepie  I like those suggestions! and I was actually thinking about ones for relationships versus the cat themselves too, but wasn't sure if anyone would be interested in seeing that though it seems like you all are :D

@Dustfeather Thank you ((: I actually love those suggestions, very fitting
worth beyond beauty I think is perfect for Brightheart, and then Strength of Character could be for Brambleclaw ^^

thank you ss !! <3

Sorry for the double post however updated the lists, however I did something different?

For multiple cats who were suggested for the same thing, I place them all there so people can see and we can then have a discussion of who fits what best ultimately. Cause tbh I feel weird just choosing lol

thank you ss !! <3

With such a high volume of flowers, there seem to be a couple flowers that have the same meaning, which we could if we want use to represent separate characters. Also as Lightning pointed out, some characters might match different things at different points in their lives. I also quite like the idea of having pairings!

And for my daily batch of suggestions lol:

fig // argument -- Bramble/Squirrel
They argued nonstop when they were younger, and then their relationship had trouble later on when Brambleclaw found out Squirrelflight didn't actually give birth to the three.

primrose // childhood -- Rusty, Smudge, or Tiny?

poplar, white // time -- Jay's Wing
Jayfeather in a way went back in time...in a weird way

quince // temptation -- Lion/Heather or Ivy/Tiger maybe? Could apply to numerous forbidden shippings

rose, white // a heart unacquainted with love -- Mousefur
She kinda strikes me as an aromantic character, idk, I think it might fit

stephanotis // happiness in marriage -- Sorrel/Bramble?
they've always seemed to be an especially good couple I think

dittany // childbirth -- Silverstream?
It kinda just describes her death this one might be too much of a downer lol

marigold // grief -- an alternate character for this one could be Snowkit

actually, for ease of access, here are a bunch of the ones that I think could easily apply to a pairing of some type:

Awww those are nice ones
question tho: Tigerheart and Ivypool were a thing?? I did not know this... a small part of me likes it though? idek :s

childbirth is actually so perfect for silverstream it's scary but also very depressing... maybe someone else like Ferncloud though?? idk

and thank you for compiling that list! pretty sure it'll be helpful to people ((:

Actually that sounds p accurate for what I remember of Firestar's attitude towards him lol

Either that or maybe Yellowfang? ThunderClan was v untrusting of her when she showed up.

I had so many of these typed up, but my computer restarted on its own and I didn't have a chance to save anything. ;_____; I'll see if I can retype up some of them... I completely forgot about this and I had so many of them done and now I'm bummed.
