Animorphs #3 - The Encounter
One of the Animorphs, Tobias, has been trapped in hawk morph. Facing the possibility that he may be a hawk for the rest of his life, he soon begins to lose his grip on his inner humanity. He and the Animorphs still have many battles to fight, but he can’t morph like they do anymore. He wonders if maybe he should just give it up, live like a hawk, and forget everything else…
I’m sorry, I can’t think of anything. ^_^;;
- Later in the series, we learn that the Andalites usually treat their nothlit (morph-trapped) warriors as casualties, as if they were already dead. Why do you suppose this is? Does it make sense in some ways? What do you suppose it’s like for other nothlits? How could their situations be improved?
- A hawk isn’t such a bad morph to be trapped in. If you had to be trapped in a morph, which would you like most, and which would you like least?
- Common sense: be nice, be literate, be mature. If you can’t handle that, we’ll ask you to leave.
- Start on topic. If your conversation takes you into the land of ferrets and their evil quest to take over the world, run with it. But please at least start off talking about the book or subjects at hand.

- There is no time limit.
- Don’t delete your comments, unless it’s for the purpose of fixing typos.
