Alright so it's been years since I read warriors so forgive me if I'm remembering wrong, but didn't the name Lostface make her really uncomfortable and she /really/ wanted it changed? I understand the idea of her keeping it out of spite but I dunno it just doesn't seem like something she'd do if she could change it like she did in the books. once again I could be remembering wrong, it's been a long time so sorry
No worries! im pretty sure she did! but in this au ive decided to lean more towards, instead of her keeping the name out of spite, she recognizes that bluestar was in a bad place.
Bluestar was upset and named her Lostface to spite starclan. Lostface later realizes that Bluestar wasn’t doing too well when she named her and decided to keep the name. Because instead of erasing the name Bluestar gave her and making it shameful, she decides to keep the name and turn it into one that makes Starclan proud. if that makes sense
Idk i havent thought it all through yet. Thank you so much for the ask, though!! it helped me think through some of the background for the AU
