If Crookedstar Never Broke His Jaw

Let’s say Crookedstar never broke his jaw.

Obviously, he’d remain Stormkit. He’d have the typical cockiness of a RiverClan cat, but it would be more obnoxious due to being stared at and gushed over. After all, he was quite handsome!

Young Stormpaw would be a fantastic apprentice. He would have excelled in fishing and combat training and would have seemed to be a “perfect” cat.

Mapleshade would not meddle with his life. Everything would have been okay and there would have been far less deaths.

Hailstar would die in a battle against ThunderClan, and Shellheart would become leader. Shellstar would have the honor of giving his sons his warrior names. Rainflower would have suggested Oakheart, and Shellstar would pick the name Stormface in honor of his handsome looks. He would be stuck over Stormblaze and Stormface, but Rainflower would have helped decide.

Stormface would fall in love with Willowbreeze soon before becoming leader. Willowkit, Silverkit and Minnowkit would when Stormstar had been leader for two moons.

Stormstar would be a very respected leader. His deputy would be Ottersplash, and together the two would make RiverClan a mighty, powerful Clan. RiverClan would win Sunningrocks back from ThunderClan in a battle that would cost the life of Adderfang of ThunderClan. ThunderClan would be furious but wouldn’t be strong enough to fight back.

RiverClan would become the most powerful Clan, rivaled only by ShadowClan.
