RedheadEmber said: Why would they have an argument? They only time that has really happened was back in HY4, when Ember was a hotheaded 16-year-old (if she was even that old, not sure) and Cutter still had hangups over all those years without his family. Now Ember is a mature chieftess in her forties, and Cutter has pretty much healed from (temporary) losing his family.
Because not even the closest people agree on everything all the time? :p And now Ember's struggling with the aftermath of being captured...her motivations against Angrif and how she thinks the humans should be dealt with might be different from Cutter's.
She could probably use a break, yeah...but chiefs don't get breaks. They can defer to elders while they recover, but no chief before has had the luxury of just letting a previous chief take over for awhile. Not saying it's not understandable to be done, but I would worry that it would weaken how the others see her later on, considering stereotypical pack dynamics.
