Title: Like Autumn Leaves
By: [ profile] ladysugarquill
For: [ profile] rideinthelimo
Medium: Digital art
Rating/Warnings: PG
Summary: They're enjoying a moment of peace, back when they still could...
Creator's Notes: ohi, I'm late, what else is new. I'm so sorry for the delay, for once it wasn't all my fault! My country had a dumb, and it messed up my schedule XD

Looks like the ansgtier the canon, the fluffier the fanworks I make. Your prompts were sacrifice, laughter, fall. Then Marco hijacked my brain and it all went down from there. A huge thank you to the mods - I know it mustn't been easy to fit someone who hasn't finished the series. You rock!

autumn leaves soon fall... )

It occurred to me that I haven't posted any of my recent(ish) Animorphs doodleys here. :o This first one is not-so-doodley, but I'm pretty pleased with it and the fact that most people would be all "oh look birds," but we know what's obvious. 8D

So I've been making plans to attend WizardWorld's Philadelphia Comic Con at the end of May. I've been once before (got my picture with Chris Hemsworth of Thor fame!) and was planning this time around because of the large number of Firefly/Serenity actors going this year (going to get my picture with Nathan Fillion!).

Looking over the guest list again, I realized they'd added someone while I wasn't looking. They added Shawn Ashmore (and his twin brother Aaron too), who I know best as Jake from the Animorphs TV show:

We can all agree the show was bad, hilariously bad (in fact, the idea of getting to meet Jake means I'll finally watch all the episodes for the first time in years and post my reactions here, something I've been wanting to do for a while but this will be the push that makes me actually do it :P). But even so, even knowing that it was terribly, I still picture those actors whenever I'm thinking of the Animorphs. Whenever I'm watching the original X-Men movies, I see him as Bobby/Iceman but I still think of him as Jake.

So I think I'm going to gather up my courage, walk up to him at the convention, and tell him that he will always be Jake from Animorphs and I thought he was awesome. Dare me to do it? Or, better yet, anyone else want to go to Philly and tell him yourself? :D

<Oh, come on, Marco! Chapman's going to SEE that!!>
<I'm a gorilla in a zoo exhibit. What's he going to do, dracon me in front of the third grade class?>

And now I must write this fanfic...

I am not sure how relevant to people's interests this is, but (besides being a fan of Animorphs, of course) I am a HUGE fan of the webcomic Homestuck, which is about a bunch of thirteen year old kids, aliens, self-discovery, war and death and justice and heroism, time travel, and a giant complex chess game between the forces of creation and destruction that the kids are unwittingly drawn into.

So, basically, it was pretty much begging to get mixed up with Animorphs, and I drew a bunch of doodles to that effect. :P Mild spoilers for Homestuck behind the cut, in the "this is a thing that exists as a concept/game mechanic in Homestuck" sort of sense.

Sorry, I can't get tags to work. Not the brackets, the actual tags. LJ wasn't fully recovered yet last week.

I have been doing my own re-read of the series for the first time (I read each and every book when it was originally released) and this quote just stuck out, so I thought I would post it here.

"I guess sometimes you have to choose between smart, sane, ruthlessness, and totally stupid, insane hope," I said, not even realizing I was speaking out loud. "You can't just pick one and stick with it, either. Each time it comes up, you have to try and make your best decision. Most of the time, I guess I have to go with being smart and sane. But I don't want to live in a world where people don't try the stupid, crazy, hopeful thing sometimes."

I had a meme up on my journal asking for prompts, and they're all now on my website. I figured I'd share the three Animorphs-related ones: Jordan, A Fitting End, and Berenson Bash. The longest here is not-quite-300 words, so please take a minute and check them out. =)

I think this is the last one for Jake for the moment. Unless I do Jake/auxiliaries later. Jake and Erek maybe.

Anyway, this one is fun just because they're probably close to the same age if you could translate Andalite to human, but Ax looks to Jake as a superior. The morphing of Jake was funny...eating all the chili. I don't recall *too* much conflict with these two after The Alien until the rescue at Jake's house went wrong and Jake was conflicting with basically the whole group, understandably.

Fun recurring moment: "Ax, don't call me prince." Ax's best response "I will call you the Jake formerly known as prince"

Cutting, because of the major spoiler here )

EDIT: Tag confusion becuase I'd posted this to my own journal first by mistake. *FACEPALM*

...Yes, it is. And gosh, darn it, all of my fanfiction for this series is so weird. Weird and angry.

Fun Fact: This is a sad, angry, emo fic about sad, angry people. About halfway through writing this fic, I decided I needed to write something fun and silly, so I started to write a new drabble set about ½ through the series about Marco helping Rachel cut class… aaaand it turned into some weird, poorly constructed diatribe about how Andalites don’t believe in God, which I hastily aborted out of fear of depressing myself further.
I’m not even kidding.

Before I started writing Anific, I used to be able to write happy things. x_____x

Title: Just Below the Surface
Rating: PG13 for bloody battle scenes and potty-mouthed superheroes. There is also some suggestion that somewhere, somehow, someone had sex with someone else.
And everything else is spoilers. )

Early postage because tomorrow's going to be a bit busy and I'm afraid I'll be too tired by nighttime. I'm just going to start at the top...can I collaborate with someone on a list, so I can keep everything straight? I'd appreciate it.

So I finally finished Mockingjay the other day...I remember reading a F!S a while back (when I still read them, lol) that claimed The Hunger Games trilogy was just like Animorphs--which is still kind of a ridiculous claim, but I admit that with this comparison on the mind as I finished this last book, I did see several parallels between both series in terms of events, themes, moral quandaries, gritty realism, etc--all of which just show why both series are memorable and a cut above the average YA series...I wrote a short meta about the parallels (especially between Katniss and Jake) if anyone is interested. MAJOR spoilers for Mockingjay and the last Animorphs book, #54, ensue:

Follow the Fake Cut...

I definitely think that I was not quite as outraged as some other THG fans over the end, lol, since controversial and sad series endings are old hat for Animorphs fans...;)

...and how their homework was suffering as a result...when exactly did they write down their stories?

I think we've touched on this topic before, in one of the character discussions or something, but it's something that's irked me again as I'm rereading the ending arc and I thought perhaps we could go a bit deeper.

So let's get all Inception up in here.... )

My recent Animorphs fics . . . The links lead to my journal.

Title: Fix You
Characters: Jake, Cassie, Tobias
Setting: #54
Lyrics: Fix You by Coldplay
Words: ~400
Rating: PG
Summary: When you try your best but you don’t succeed / When you get what you want but not what you need / When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep / Stuck in reverse
She was my best friend, she tells the cameras through her sobs. She was brave and beautiful and good, and now she’s gone.

Title: Hotels
Characters: Tobias/Rachel
Setting: Mid-to-late series (somewhere in the 40's-ish)
Words: ~630
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Rachel spends the night in Tobias' meadow.

Rachel leaves, feeling no guilt for the lie. She's done it enough times that it's almost become a compuslive habit not to tell her mother where she's going when she leaves the house, even if it's for something as innocent as the mall or gymnastics. Not that she has much time for either of those things these days.

Title: To Move On
Characters: Cassie, Jake, the other Animorphs (briefly)
Setting: Near the beginning
Words: ~740
Rating: PG for some blood
Notes: I don't know who was the first one of the Animorphs to kill a human-Controller or whether it was shown in canon at all. So consider this slightly AU. Also Andrew Weber is not a canon character.
Summary: Cassie loses control.

I demorphed, my snout sucking back into my face and my fur disappearing into my skin, but the final scream of a dead man still rang in my ears as I stood.

Title: Please
Fandom: Animorphs/The Iliad
Character(s): Cassie, Cassandra
Rating: PG
Words: 100
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Summary: No one listens. No one will ever listen.

“They’ll destroy you, they’ll destroy us all!”

Title: If They Never Came
Fandom: Animorphs
Characters/Pairings: All mains and a few minors; brief Jake/Cassie
Notes/Spoilers: No spoilers except one family's name. AU.
Words: 635
Rating: PG
Summary: This is how their lives were meant to go. It was the Yeerks that destroyed them.

When he dies he receives a hero's send-off.
