Best Forbidden Romance?
« on: June 26, 2015, 12:12:10 AM »
Forbidden romance is, for better or worse, a staple of the Warriors series. Which code-defying pairing do you think is best?

I might be biased, because I just finished Fire and Ice, but I think that GrayxSilver has a lot going for it. It was the first cross clan romance we were introduced to, so it had a certain gravity to it. I think that gets a little lost as the books carry on, and it becomes clearer that the Clans are shaped by forbidden romance, even if no one wants to talk about it.

That being said, I think that OakxBlue is fantastic as well. I also think that LeafxCrow is interesting. Not that they're a good fit for each other, but they did help drive the plot in a way a better couple couldn't.

I don't mind forbidden romance at all, but I don't like most of the pairings.

I actively hate Gray/Silver and Yellow/Ragged, find Leaf/Crow and Dove/Tiger to be "eh", don't think of Lion/Heather as a forbidden romance, and dislike Blue/Oak, but not enough to actually hate it.

I was going to say there isn't actually one I straight up like until I remembered Jay/Half, which I actually really do like, so I suppose there's that. Especially since it wasn't drawn out, didn't involve anyone acting OOC, and gave Jayfeather the perspective to understand why Leafpool ran off with Crowfeather (eventually leading to him forgiving her).

I actually really like Leafpool and Crowfeather... I don't know why, honestly. I just do.

I also really like Jayfeather and Half Moon. It does, as Lightflame said, give a bit more understanding to why Leafpool ran away with Crowfeather and helps drive the forgiveness thing forward. I also really admire the fact that even after Jayfeather left, Half Moon continued to wait for him and never actually took a mate, had kits, ect. She stayed loyal to him and waited for him, even after death.

I like Graystripe and Silverstream to a point. It wasn't quite as drawn out as it could have been, and Silverstream does have a point when she tells her father that she's old enough to make her own choices and all of that.

Forbidden romances are p much all of my favorite ships. If I had to pick a favorite I remember really liking Blue/Oak when I read Bluestar's Prophecy.

Someone on the other thread mentioned Leafpool and Mothwing, and I can also totally get behind that.

Leafpool and Mothwing yes.

I can get behind this ship and isn't it actually true that she called Mothwing beautiful or something like that???

I'm going to be in the vast minority with this, and to be honest I have no idea why I liked it, but Dove/Tiger was probably my favorite forbidden romance. It should be everything I dislike about reading romances (overly sweet and cutesy), but for some reason I liked it.

Leafpool/Mothwing would be my favorite if it were canon, though I always like to imagine that is. I mean, come on! They spent so much time together, like didn't Leafpool sneak off (multiple times, I think) to go see her?

i really liked leaf/crow back in the day, and i'm still pretty attached to blue/oak. lion/heather was also pretty good until things soured.

i was never really sure about dove/tiger, recalling it it seemed kinda forced, and so did dove/bumble (though that wasn't forbidden) although idk if i'm remembering right. i need to read the books again.

I liked GrayxSilver if only for it being the first- it always had an extra level for being the first one before it became kind of old. LeafpoolxMothwing yes

CrowxFeather was cuter to me than LeafxCrow though I still don't really like Crowfeather.

I was a diehard Leaf/Crow shipper back in the day, but nowadays I really like Leaf/Moth and also Leaf/Night?? Blue/Oak has always been a favorite of mine as well. Lion/Heather was cute too, at least back when the third arc was just starting.

Like a few others have said, I really liked Gray/Silver (but that may be because it was the first, which makes it less cheesy than the other ones tend to seem). Since it wasn't overplayed at the time it seemed really sweet and ngl, it made me very emotional when Silverstream died. I also super duper loved Feathertail and Stonefur so that's a huge plus for Gray/Silver.

I also liked Blue/Oak compared to the others... It was emotional to me back when I read it, and although I don't remember specific details right now I'm pretty sure I'd still consider it one of my favorites.
