For the record, nothing as down-to-earth as StarKit's face emerging from a circle in the sky happens in this fanfictionnote .

StarKits Prophcy (found here or here) is a Warrior Cats FanFic that chronicles the life of StarGleam, StarClan's chosen one, from her apprentice ceremony onward. She deals with such trials and tribulations as a Love Dodecahedron with Firestar, Graystripe, Blackstar, Hawkfrost, and Ashfur; the threat of Hollyleaf and Tigerstar as they try to take over the forest; and attempting to convert the Clans to Christianity. Somewhere along the way she discovers that she (along with the author) is a lesbian, becomes leader of ThunderClan, and dies multiple times.

It is a full-on Random Events Plot. If you really feel you must attempt to make sense of it, go ahead and read it yourself.

Four amusing dramatic readings have surfaced so far. They can be found here, here, here, and here. Also has an animated version courtesy of Moonkitti.

Arguably the Warriors equivalent of My Immortal. See also Hidden Prophices.

The author has also started a sequel, titled Starkits Prophecy 2 The Two Siblings. A new Clan called MapleClan is introduced. Stargleam and some other characters from the first fic are in StarClan, and they receive a new prophecy to pass on to the Clans. Sadly, it has since been deleted.


This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Anatomically Impossible Sex: Somehow, StarGleam has become PREGGANT by the also-female JazzSong. JazzSong even points out that this shouldn't be possible, but it's still not explained.
  • Ask a Stupid Question...:
    • After experiencing her own death, StarGleam needs to ask how she died. And then almost immediately afterwards has to ask if she is dead again.
    • '"who is StarGlaem" asked StarGleam'
  • Author Filibuster:
    • Screw the plot, using two whole chapters to teach the Clans about how important it is to find StarClan (i.e. God) is much more important.
    • Advertisement:
    • The author also goes out of her way to remind us that GleamStar and HawkFrost don't have sex before getting married.
    • It strays into straight Author Tract for a while, as for a long period of time the story is more about how "wrong" it is to be gay than any consistent plot element.
  • Artistic License – Biology: GleamStar's kits come out through her stomach.
  • Artistic License – Religion:
    • The Clans have never heard of God, nor do they practice any human religions. Yet they still say "Oh my god!" (or rather "OMG!" or "MOGOSH!"), and the Ten Commandments (or rather "Ten Commons") play a role in the story.
    • The fact that anybody who doesn't like the fic is instantly a "stnist" who hates "jEssus" may count, too.
    • "11. No BENG GAY!f"
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: StarGleam and JazzStar in the finale.
  • Badass Preacher: StarGleam: "ACCEPT JESUS MOTHERFUCKERS!"
  • Back from the Dead:
    • StarGleam (twice), AshFir, and all the cats listed under Unexplained Recovery.
    • Although Tigerstar and Hawkfrost are both dead in canon, they both seem to be alive for the purposes of this fic.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Hollyleaf "turned in…. A BARE!"
  • Because Destiny Says So:
    • Apparently, StarGleamStar has to become evil because "its my destinty I no that now."
    • When StarGleam begs FluffyKit not to die, he has this to say: "'I have tos tarGleam its my detsinty.'"
  • Beginner's Luck: Chapter three, in which Firestar praises Starpaw with words of wisdom: "The last cat i new that culd fiht lik that was SandStrom. Your a good fihter"
  • Beige Prose: Especially early in the story.... "The cats gathered around a pool. They all looked into it eagerly. A dark shape appeared on the surface. A blue she cat looked up. Her eyes were bright."
  • Big "NO!":
    • The first one debuts in chapter 12, and they get more and more frequent until there's one or more per chapter.
    • There is also a Big Moo, and a Big "~!11!11!1!1!11!1!11!1!1!1!11!1!1!11!111111".
    • What do you get when you combine Gratuitous Japanese with Big "NO!"? "IIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE !1!"
  • Big "OMG!": "OMIGOSH U MEAN LIKE SCOURG?" STARPAW SHOCKED.
  • Big Word Shout: There's one on nearly every page.
  • Big "YES!": "YESSSASSSSS"
  • Black Comedy Rape: BlackStar's "MOLE STRAEP" of StarPaw in chapter five comes across this way unintentionally.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: The lack of obedience for the Warrior Code results in many cats dying and plenty of blood to go around.
  • Broken Aesop: Apparently, being "unfateful to our mat" is okay as long as it's StarGleam doing it.
  • Cain and Abel: TigerKit and FluffyKit.
  • CamelCase: In the original series, the "Clan" in ThunderClan is always capitalized, whereas the suffixes of the names never are. This fanfic inverts that, other than the occasional mistake which corrects the original mistake.
  • Captain Obvious: "You see there is this prophcy Starcaln gave me it said out of the darkness, stars will come and get rid of the evil tiger and holly." StarPaw gasped. "What does it mean?"
  • Cargo Ship: In-Universe. Jayfeather mentions being in love with a stick, meaning the author has decided to make Jay×Stick canon. This is probably the only Canon Defilement that most fans won't object to, since a lot of them already ship him and the stick anyway.
    After al this tim she finds out that her fathe loved a sTICK. SHE GAPD IN SHOC.
  • Cast from Hit Points: StarGleam's final attack on the villains.
  • Chest Burster:
    • StarGleam gives birth to kits through a "BRAKE in her stomchi", with hefty doses of Artistic License – Biology.
    • This is taken up a notch in the Christmas Special, where the birth of Starkit is shown. The scene plays out exactly like the birth of Jesus. This quote from the chapter says it all: "This is our savor." said Bluesatr. "We know it. We sae t in the stars. Starkit will ne JESUSS!1!1!1!11"
  • Clueless Aesop: The author's attempts to teach us that "BENG GAY!f" is wrong. And the evangelism.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • 'Also im not a torll!1 ppl tell me Im ver petty!'
    • Also in 'Chatper Forr GayStripe'
      "OMIGOSH U MEAN LIKE SCOURG?" STARPAW SHOCKED. 'No ur much prtter then sourg' said Graystripe
  • Conflict Ball: Three toms decide they want StarPaw for themselves, leaving StarPaw upset and indecisive about which one to like.
    • Now with the added conflict that she seems to be in love with Hawkfrost and she doesn't want to be (even though she seems perfectly fine with other cats WHO ALREADY HAVE MATES liking her...)
      • But this gets resolved when she just becomes Hawkfrost's mate anyway, without any complaints at all.
    • Now Ashfur is after her, too.
  • Crack Fic
  • Crossover: Given the geographical and species barriers, the HoBare may be the closest we'll get to having a Warrior Cats/Seekers crossover.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • Every single "fight" consists of one character running towards another character, and the other character dying.
    • The final chapter when StarGleam destroys all evil with Frickin' Laser Beams
  • Death Is Cheap: So far, every single character who has died has come back (with or without explanation). Until the last chapter.
  • Department of Redundancy Department:
    • '"Gasped" gasped everyone.'
    • And '"Today is important today."'
    • 'Then they were in the Fark Forest. It was dark. Here was no mono 2 lighte the way and it wass heard to see.'
    • 'Her reinbow eyes where glowed lick skys after rani' (Translation: Her rainbow eyes glowed like a rainbow)
    • 'it hert StarFleam! It hurt.'
    • 'StarPaw wondered threw the forst madly. She was anger.y.'
    • "She turned in…. A BARE!" One sentence later: "It was a bare!"
    • "'Hi she said.' 'Hi.' He said. 'Hi.' She rippled."
    • "GASP" GASPED THE ENTER CALN."
    • 'StarGlema the puprle cat / Was a vrey purpel cat'
    • At least one chapter has several lines of dialogue written twice in a row, word for word.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: TigerStar and Hollyleaf suddenly show up at the end of GlaemStar's leadership ceremony and start causing trouble, until...
  • Don't Like, Don't Read: "OKKAY IF you dont LIKE thestor y you dont have to readit u know."
  • Dramatic Ellipsis: Frequently used, in much the same vein as My Immortal.
  • Dramatic Reading: All of which are Troper Works.
  • Dramatis Personae: The "Alliances" prologue.
  • Dull Surprise: After informing StarGleam of BlackStar's "swisscide" and observing her shocked reaction, all FireStar can say in response is...
    FierStart: i know rite.
  • Emphasize EVERYTHING: If the author can find an excuse to use capslock, she will.
  • Everyone Is Gay: Seems to be headed in this direction since the author's Suddenly Sexuality realization.
  • Everything's Better with Cows: MOOOOOOOOO!note 
  • Everything's Better With Sparkles:
    • GleamStar's "checks" are very sparkly.
    • "'I HAVE KITS SILVERSDREAM! IKTS!11!1' SPARKLED STARGLEAM."
  • Fan-Art:
  • Fan Disservice: The author tries to make all of the same-sex kisses into this. It doesn't work. Given that the gay and lesbian characters come off as a lot more generous, kind, and reasonable than the hero, the failure here was basically a foregone conclusion.
  • Fandom-Specific Plot: A new kit is born into ThunderClan, there's a prophecy by StarClan proclaiming she will save the forest, and she becomes leader. What makes this one special is its hilariously bad execution and extreme Writer on Board tendencies.
  • Fanime: Someone is creating an animated series out of the fic.
  • Flat "What":
    • '"Yo couldt kill im becas u're nut dead." "what" said StarGleam'
    • "'what.' said TigerKit hi shocked."
  • Freudian Slip: Several. Highlights include 'GayStrip locked at hr meanly.', '"without them we wold be lust."', '"NO!" shitted SarPaw Again runnin into the forst.', '"IM A SHAPSHITTER!" siad Hollylea joyly.', 'Wit a rar like an volcano erection she jumped at StarGlaem!' and 'StarGleam shitting her paws', "They all new infancy it was she whom was beng mad a warrior", "We'll start with how to dog", "GayStrip locked at hr meanly".
  • Gayngst:
    • StarGleam has a moment of Teh Gay when she thinks RedPaw is beautiful. She does, however, quickly re-convince herself that she is "street."
    • And now RedPaw and LakePool feel sad because they aren't allowed to be in love... d'awww.
    • Also becomes in inversion, since all of the gay and lesbian couples are perfectly happy; it's StarPaw that constantly wangsts at the fact that they're gay.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Er... what were Hollyleaf and Tigerstar's motives again?
  • Giftedly Bad: The author, xdark.rosesx. It's a wonder she managed to spell her username correctly. Even that's questionable, as on the official Warrior Cats forum, where she has made one or two posts, her handle is "xdarkrosesx"; perhaps the period was a mistake.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Inverted as much as physically possible to justify the author's homophobia... Until later.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: In Chapter 45, GleamStar's eyes begin to glow when she gets "ANGNRY."
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: In the author's note at the end of chapter 17, the author berates all bad reviewers for not believing in "Gosh".
  • Gratuitous French:
  • Gratuitous German: ThunderClan is once referred to as Donderclan.
    • In Chatper 45 THE DEATH nd berayal, StarGleam is once referred to as SternGleam.
    • Chapter NEIN is probably unintentional.
  • Gratuitous Japanese:
    • Both Firestar and Hawkfrost think StarPaw is "kawaii". Of course, since the characters aren't actually speaking English in the first place, and all the other languages seen are those of other animals which are simply rendered as barking/growling/whatever noise said animal makes, one could assume this is roughly the equivalent of a cat mooing. StarGleam actually does moo once thanks to a combination of Big "NO!" and Rouge Angles of Satin.
    • StarGleam seems to get referred to as "Kawaii" more and more as the fic goes on.
    • Hawkfrost once elects to use "iie" rather than "no."
      • And there's StarGleam's "IIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE !1!" from Chapter 30.
    • Hawkfrost is occasionally referred to with Japanese Honorifics, as "Hacky-kin" or "Hawkfrost-kun". Also, two of the chapter intros have the author calling one of her friends "jazzie-kun".
    • "'do you want to fo huntibg with me desu ka?'"
  • Has Two Mommies: Fluffykit, Firekit, Tigerkit.
  • Heel–Face Turn:
    • Hawkfrost has been turned good by StarGleam's kawaii-ness.
    • Many readers also find the author, and by extension, StarGleam more sympathetic after she stops being a "homophone".
  • The Hero Dies: In the final chapter.
  • Hide Your Gays: "The elfenth commonment is NO BEING GAY!11"
  • Homosexual Reproduction: Jazzsong and Stargleam. Also counts as G-Rated Sex, as it appears that the characters hadn't had any kind of opportunity to engage in intercourse (even if that would somehow get them pregnant).
  • Incest Is Relative:
    • Firestar is StarGleam's great grandfather.
    • Tigerkit gets together with Rainstar (Mothwing?), Tigerstar's daughter. Because Stargleam was reincarnated as Tigerstar's daughter, Rainstar is Tigerkit's aunt.
  • It's Personal: Stargleam, when Tigerstar kills Fluffykit.
  • Killed Off for Real: FluffyKit and StarGleam in the last chapter.
  • Lame Comeback: "YEAH WELL YOUR GAY!11111!"
  • Large Ham: The author herself seems very fond of capslock.
  • Lets See YOU Do Better: "i bet u cant right such a good story!1!1"
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: StarPaw mentions that she has discovered SLASH, meaning that she has apparently gone around reading other fan fics.
  • Logical Fallacies: The author admits to herself that she is a lesbian after she discovers slash. How reading stories about two men makes someone realise that they like women is a mystery. It could be process of elimination.
  • May–December Romance: StarGleam and Firestar, Blackstar, or Graystripe; any one of those would be this. Also Hollyleaf and Tigerstar.
  • Mind Screw: And how.
  • Moment Killer: Hollyleaf, when StarGleam is about to confess her love for Firestar.
  • OC: Many of them.
  • Once Upon a Time: Jayfeather's epic in Chapter Six.
    • "Onceu pon a tiem there were afew cats that i licked."
  • One Bullstar Limit: After BleuStar's death she turns into BullStar. So does BlackStar after his "swisscide."
  • One-Man Army: In 'Chapeter thee the Batle With ShadwoCaln!', StarPaw and JazzPaw see Blackstar!1!111
  • Our Hero Is Dead: At the end of "Cahepter 11" (formerly "Cahpter 12"), "STARGLEAM WAS DIED!11!111!11111!1!11!"
