Hola everyone! In this post, I would like to dig a little bit deeper into these ships. Since I am a Brackenleaf shipper, already I bring a few biases to the table and I apologize for that, but I’m going to be covering why I think each of these ships would/wouldn’t work. (I won’t make it one giant paragraph though, because those are always frustrating to read through.)
WARNING, A FEW SPOILERS PAST BOOK ONE.
This is possibly the most shipped ship of all time, and it’s easy to see why. They’re adorable together! They’ve grown up together, they tease one another, and are practically always by eachother’s side!
They have a deep connection with one another, and rarely argue! Their love is pure and magical. Not to mention, they make great leaders and role-models, even by themselves! But, now we get into family issues......
I don’t about you guys, but the recent post about Lightfeather’s relationship with Silverlake is a bit of what sparked this idea. Here’s how Star’s and Morningleaf’s family tree works (briefly).
Now, most of the time, people who ship Brackenleaf claim Star and Morningleaf are practically siblings. But this isn’t quite right... Lightfeather is the adoptive daughter of Thundersky and Silverlake, right? Morningleaf is the blood daughter of Thundersky and Silverlake.
This means Morningleaf and Lightfeather are sisters, which makes Morningleaf the aunt of Star. Crazy to think about, right? So, Star and Morningleaf aren’t even siblings anymore; technically, they’re aunt and nephew!
Now, rest assured, they are milk siblings and still real siblings, but, if we really look into the family, we could say Morningleaf really is the aunt of Star. This, personally, makes all the difference to me, and this is why I think Brackenleaf is more suitable. (Opinion, don’t have to follow me!) (Also, they are not blood related, and they would be absolutely fine to be together. Starleaf is still a working ship, but morally, it’s confusing and strange. Still a beautiful ship, though!)
Brackentail loves Morningleaf more than he maybe even loves himself. Not too sure if the feeling is mutual, but I hope it is. They aren’t related in any way, and I think they would make the perfect couple.
Morningleaf has forgiven Brackentail, right? I think forgiveness is one of the biggest factors of their relationship. I think it strengthens it, a lot. I also like to think of them as an adult love, more of a maturer love, in the sense that they sharpen themselves off of one another, not just one following blindly after the other. (Even though Brackentail seems to do this A LOT xD)
Brackentail tried to kill Star.
That is probably the biggest way this ship may sink. Sometimes, it’s very hard to be forgiving, and Brackentail is no exception. Not to mention, Brackentail was young and stupid, so he thought teasing and angering Morningleaf when they were young was the way to go.
Honestly, I don’t see many other problems with their relationship. The biggest problem is that if Morningleaf goes with Brackentail, it could weaken her relationship with Star. Star isn’t one to get jealous very often, but it may occur. He may feel resentment towards Brackentail, even after he has healed him and forgiven him.
So, what do you guys think? Is there anything I’m missing? Tell me your thoughtsssss I need them right nowww!
P.S./DISCLAIMER: This is all opinion! Please, no hating on the person, hate the ship xD (I know you guys won’t hate the people, but still, lol)
