ah yes, the relationship that was so important that they didn't even bother announcing it until Cinderpelt had been dead for almost a whole series...
I know that u wrote this like a year ago but it really bugs me when people are like, "He should be with Cinderpelt" when their relationship was never an important plot point.
I personally always found Sandstorm to be the most relatable of Firestar's loves anyway.
She got jealous and she showed that
She could be insecure
She didn't fall inlove with him the moment she met him like Cinderpelt and Spottedleaf, she grew to like him, and then love him
She was still loyal to him and loved him, but if she thought he was doing the wrong thing then she would make it known and wouldn't join in
Spottedleaf was little mrs perfect the whole way through and had, what, 3 conversations with him then never left him alone once she died
Cinderpelt was actually relatable until the second series of books, then she was just mixed. She was snappy, wise, gentle, playful and all that crap.
so, Team Sandstorm for me! *sigh* rant over xD
