I definitely ship Starleaf, because it is perfect and wonderful and BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Star has known Morningleaf sense they were foals, and it is clear that they are in love. Brackentail, on the other hoof, almost killed Star, and now he's giving them puppy eyes, and begging for them to let him join River Herd. Then, after he joins and when they go to the Trap, and leave again on Morningleaf's mission, he gets upset when Morningleaf says she wants Star, is if they haven't been best friends forever and are clearly in love. Also, it just seems like Brackentail is trying to get Morningleaf to fall in love with him, and that's not cool. Also, you know when they almost died from the berries? Well,
when that was happening, Brackentail told Silverlake that her filly would not be alone in the golden meadow, and that he would be with her. I REALLY hated that part, like, I mean, I bet Morningleaf would much rather hang out with Bumblewind, Echofrost, or Dewberry, and not HIM. Also, it kinda seemed like Brackentail was glad Morningleaf was going to the golden meadow with him, at least in my mind. So, if that wasn't clear, I strongly dislike Brackentail, and that Starleaf will forever be better.
(Sorry, this post sort of turned into a Brackentail rant)
