AU where ashfur never becomes an abusive, manipulative douchebag and actually stays in character. He’s actually attracted to brambleclaw but is too shy to admit it so he confesses it to squirrelflight. squirrelflgiht’s encourages him that it’s best to confess his feelings to brambleclaw but keeps the secret to herself.
After the badger attack, ashfur finally overcomes his fear and tells brambleclaw how he feels about him. Brambleclaw turns him down but they’re still really cool bros.
Also ashfur is a homoromantic asexual.
