** In ''Ravenpaw's Farewell'', Violet asks the two if they have any kits. Ravenpaw awkwardly responds, "Er, no." While it's presumable that she meant individually, it's understandable why Ravenpaw felt so awkward.

** Unlike [[EveryoneIsRelated most of the couples here]], these two are [[BrotherSisterIncest half-siblings...]]. Yeah...


** ''Ravenpaw's Farewell'' is basically a beautiful, joyful, crazy tearjerking celebration of Ravenpaw and Barley's lives together and their love for each other. [[spoiler:They fight, they make up, they stand by each other, Barley cares for Ravenpaw as he's dying of liver cancer. At the end, Ravenpaw says that he regrets nothing, because his life with Barley has made him happier than he thought a cat could be. He declines a place in [=StarClan=] in favor of a place where he and Barley can be together -- and as he dies peacefully on his paw, swears they'll be meet again one day.]]

*** What the authors meant, probably, was that they wouldn't write {{Gayngst}} or get tied up in plotlines like 'Oh, I love him! But he's a tom! ''How can this be''!'. As shown by Kate Cary's recent confirmation of [[WordOfGay Tallstar/Jake]] as canon, they're fine with portraying gay
relationships, but they don't want to use being gay as a source of drama or discuss it in canon.

Added DiffLines:

* Violetpaw has this towards both Needletail and Zelda. She looks up to Needletail almost obsessively, and is shown to be blind to her (rather glaring) faults. On the other hand, Violetpaw and Zelda form a strong bond ''very'' quickly, to the point where [[spoiler:Violetpaw becomes distraught at the prospect of Zelda leaving.]] And let's not forget that they shared a nest...

** In the same book, after [[spoiler:they fight and get separated, then are reunited]], the two act like an old couple getting over [[spoiler:a fight.]]


* [[HeterosexualLifePartners Barley and Ravenpaw]] are two toms that live together in an abandoned barn, having little interaction with other cats. When they do see other cats, they act like a married couple. The amount of HoYay between them can get pretty surprising, considering it's a series for pre-teens about talking cats. Even fans that ''hate'' male/male pairings ship these two, or at least recognize the possibility. That's saying something.

Added DiffLines:

**** Well when someone asked Vicky outright on her facebook if Jake and Tallstar were together, she mentioned something about how there are certain things you just can't do in kids' literature in this day and age, and also basically said "I can neither confirm nor deny". Which makes it seem like yes, they are a couple, and the reason it isn't more overt is that ExecutiveMeddling will always get in the way of canon gay relationships.

** Darkstripe's idolization of Tigerstar would probably count as well. He literally [[spoiler:follows Tigerstar to the grave]], and the one time he refuses to go with him, right after Tigerstar's betrayal of [=ThunderClan=], it's because he was jealous of the fact that Tigerstar was sharing his plans with Brokentail instead of himself, Darkstripe.

** Firestar/Graystripe (Oh so very, ''very'' much of it, the final chapter of ''Forest of Secrets'' being ''especially'' noteworthy), Firestar/Whitestorm (If I had for nickle every time Whitestorm stands up for Firestar, and we are told how much Firestar respects Whitestorm... I'd be rich.), Brambleclaw/Hawkfrost (Brambleclaw jeopardizes his relationship with Squirrelflight because he spends too much time with Hawkfrost. And then when things get patched up between them, ''he still meets Hawkfrost in secret''.), and Lionblaze/Stormfur (It starts with Lionblaze thinking that he likes Stormfur, and then eventually culminates with a Jayfeather detecting a rush of warmth and a strong bond between them). As for one-sided, we have a bit of Fallen Leaves/Jayfeather ("I could not leave you here to walk alone, when you walked with me like a brother."), Kestrelflight/Jayfeather (Kestrelflight isn't particularly surprised to see [[EroticDream Jayfeather in his dreams]]), and Purdy/Sol (Purdy stands up for Sol ''all the time'', plus they lived alone together for a while)... Hmm... I still think I'm missing some...
** This troper is convinced Hollyleaf was in love with both Cinderheart and Willowshine.
** Leafpool has some {{Romantic Two Girl Friendship}}s with Sorreltail, Mothwing, and Cody that can easily be seen as this. Mothwing also has ''massive'' amounts of LesYay right back at Leafpool, as well as some with Willowshine and possibly even Leopardstar.
