Nine Lives Ceremony by ClimbToTheStars Nine Lives Ceremony by ClimbToTheStars
- "So, you're here to give me my last life. Does this mean that you've come to your senses? Are you ready to face what's right for Thunderclan?"
- "You had your chance to talk ethics before you murdered me."
- "That's right; why give your murderer nine lives then?"
- "It wasn't my idea, I assure you. It was a matter of fate. You see Tigerclaw, many cats believe in a single "line" of destiny - a direct road through life, shaped by Starclan's will. That is not the case, of course. A cat's destiny is made up of many roads, and while they might align at distinct points, or weave back and forth between the stars, they are not forged by the likes of Starclan, and we cannot hope to alter their course; only warn the clan cats of their presence.
    These lines are yours. Soon, they will converge to form two distinct paths. One will lead to Thunderclan's destruction; the other, your salvation. That is why i'm here - because your wicked life may someday save my clan. You have the potential to atone for your sins Tigerclaw. And so - i'll give you your last life.
    With this life, I give you betrayal. Think on this life, and remember the hot sting of a friend turned bitter enemy, the one you trusted to lead outed as a cat who cares more for glory than the lives of his clanmates. Remember this pain when you choose your future path, Tigerclaw."


Fanart for :iconcushfuddled:'s warriors au comic, Twin Shadows
In this AU, Rusty never joins Thunderclan and as a result Tigerclaw kills Bluestar and takes over Thunderclan. I loved this panel where Bluestar gives him his last life, I love the emotional implications this has for both of them. I'm excited to see where this story goes next haha

The interaction between these two cats shown in this artwork is perfect, you captured the tense feeling of that ceremony.

Right on point!
I remember reading the books and thinking "Why did they give him his lives if he's evile!???"  It must've been such a tense, akward ceremony.
Both cats are very handsome in this picture, you did a great job with their features and expressions, and the background and effects really kick the picture off to give that feeling of awe.

I'm pretty sure it's Graypool, because technically Tigerclaw was the one who killed her by sort of startling her? Because wasn't Stonefur killed by Tigerclaw's rogues? I don't even remember anymore... *flips through books again*

Oh yeah! Stonefur was attacked by Darkstripe and killed by Blackfoot while Greypool got startled and fell off a cliff

Catnessa Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah. Exactly. But how is Tigerclaw Graypool's murderer, exactly? If that is Graypool in the picture, I mean. Because I recall that Tigerclaw was pretending to be Oakheart when Graypool thought that Tigerclaw WAS actually Oakheart. That sounds pretty confusing. Okay, so Graypool thought Tigerclaw was Oakheart because they had similar physical characteristics, and so Tigerclaw went along and pretended he was actually Oakheart, trying to pry information from Graypool when she started talking about Stonefur and Mistyfoot when they were kits. And then...er......Graypool somehow got startled and slipped, causing her to fall down a hill and knock her head onto a rock, which was how she died? Idk.

Really? Hm. Strange of Bluestar to gave a life of betrayal...Wait, ohhh I get it! So technically Rusty never joined ThunderClan so Tigerclaw killed Bluestar, blah blah blah. Thanks! But it's still strange of Bluestar to give Tigerstar a life of betrayal. Considering what Tigerstar did to her, I'd probably think she'd give something like a life of wits or justice or something to be aware of disloyal cats and untrustworthy cats and stuff like that. <3

She gave him the life in order to humble him, so that he would think of others before himself after feeling the pain.
