I'm not sure if anyone is interested in Imzy, which is trying to be a new social-networking site, kind of? There's a big fandom presence so far, I just signed up today to namesquat but it sounds like people are interested in starting an Animorphs community there, so I went ahead and set one up. . You need to register for the site to look around, but if you want an invite code, I have five.

So after 2 years of repeatedly suggesting and sweet-talking our collection managers and directors, our library system FINALLY (!!!) has the first 7 Animorphs books! They're the "new" editions w/the trippy covers, but *shrug*. Anyways, this is my display sign for it: )
Let me know what you think!

I'm not sure how active this community is anymore, but I thought I'd give this a shot. So, I've had this t-shirt design idea in my head for AGES now (I kid you not, it really has been years now) that I finally want to bring into production. I have pretty much all the quotes and little images for it all set, but I just have one thing left to bring it all together that I need to get figured out and I was wondering if you guys could help me with it. If there could be one image for the entire Animorphs series, what would it be to you? Like a simple icon (think how for Apple computers there's just that iconic apple, but I guess fandom-wise it could be like how Star Wars fans could see a silhouette of Darth Vader's mask or the Death Star and know it's for Star Wars or Harry Potter fans could see a snitch or a sorting hat or something). I kind of just want a silhouette shape that Animorphs fans when they see the quotes or something along with it their brains go "Ah, Animorphs :)" Right now I've been designing with the silhouette of a hawk, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any ideas. Other things that kind of crossed my mind was a cube shape (for the morphing box), an Andalite silhouette, or that A in the Animorphs font. I think I like the hawk silhouette best though so far (perched or flying though?).

Animorphs 2013 Fall Friending Meme!

Hi! So I've noticed a few other comms I'm part of have been doing friending memes lately and seeing as it's been awhile since we've last had one here I thought it might be fun to do one again. Just fill out whatever you want and have fun! :)

Is anybody of you guys active in the Animorphs tag on tumblr? Recently the Animorphs fandom on tumblr has become pretty active again. I find that so great. People post all kinds of awesome art there. And fanfiction too. And quotes. And interesting metas time and again. I love it that the fandom is so active again. Tumblr is a bit stupid, because you can't have real discussions with multiple people over there, but on the other hand I never knew that there are still so many people out there who make art and write fanfiction for Animorphs. Tumblr made me realize that. Isn't Animorphs the best fandom? More than 10 years passed since the last book was released and people are still invested in them.

Sorry for the ramble. I guess what I was trying to say is:
1. Check out the Animorphs tag on tumblr. It's worth it (but of course there's a lot of nonsense too)
2. Animorphs is one of the best fandoms ever!

So the ethnography for the semester is done (Well, "done" - I have to turn in the research I have for now, but at the beginning of next semester we're allowed to get our fieldnotes back and continue researching if we want and I'm inclined to add the general fandom to the study if I have time) and while I haven't made up a post quite yet I wanted to make sure (since some people wanted to know how the study went) that I will be posting on it. I'm still busy with finals this week.

I wouldn't post until I had it good and ready, except I'm planning on deleting my LiveJournal account (have been planning that since September - the new layouts give me major headaches) so I didn't want people on LiveJournal awaiting results to think that I'd ditched out on giving them a brief summary, plus I needed to make sure the OpenID posting worked so I actually could do it when the post was ready.

Thanks for your help! I'm still going through chat transcripts and fanfiction pieces so if you're one of those who asked me to review a fic that I haven't yet, I will still be doing so eventually. If there is a specific fic in mind you can email or comment here - my stuff's all due by Friday so after that I'll have more time.

[ profile] fandomaid is having a fandom auction to raise money for those affected by Superstorm Sandy. I'm offering fic for auction here, and I'd love to write Animorphs fic, including fic set in my Dæmorphing series. If you win the auction, you donate the amount of your bid to a charity doing recovery work in the areas affected by Sandy, and you get whatever you bid on. I encourage you all to participate.

Guys, this is a short, quick post with some sad rumours: according to Hirac Delest, there's a chance the re-launch will be cancelled :(

We need to start sending messages (on twitter and fcebook at least) to Scholastic to show them there are a lot of fans interested in the re-release!

I created this facebook page. If anyone has more ideas, please share them!

So, AnimorphsEct on tumblr is putting together a map of Animorphs fans who'd be interested in a meetup.
Just in case anyone here is interested.

Last week I posted here about a book review I was going to write about Animorphs for my college's newspaper. Well, it's out today! If you're interested in reading it, here is the link to the article online .

Though I was limited by a word count, I tried to hit on all the points I wanted to cover: the maturity and seriousness of the series, the changes being made for the relaunch, and the loyalty of the original fans. Obviously, I could have typed forever about Animorphs and couldn't go into as much detail as I desired but I hope the article is still good. If I'm lucky, my fellow college students will read the article, get curious a pick up the new books :D

If you have a chance to read the article, please let know what you think. I am still new to writing book reviews and would love to continue to improve.

Thanks so much to everyone who gave me a quote, and especially to [ profile] what_is_why  whose quote I used in my review.

I'm still looking for quotes for my Animorphs book review. If you're intested, I need them by tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. Please write your quotes into a comment on this entry (which has all the details about the review I'm writing).

[identity profile]

No spoilers that I can see. I can't get the pictures to post but they'd take up a lot of Flist room anyway. Does any one know if the backgrounds are real book cover backgrounds?

I'm writing a book review on the Animorphs relaunch for my college's newspaper (something I'm really excited for because I've always wanted to write a review for Animorphs). I'd love to get some quotes from fellow fans here, since I don't know many in real life.

No names will be used (I quoted a friend of mine in a different book review and they changed her name to just 'A friend' because the newspaper people are a bit weird like that) so I can't give you credit for the quote but I'll credit you in the post I make here on LJ about the finished review. The review will be published in my college's newspaper next Friday, and on the school's website by the weekend, which I will post a link as soon as it goes up.

Obviously, I can't quote all the fans (I'd need a whole solo newspaper to do that, rather than just a small corner on one page) but I'll try to use as many as I can. If you're interested, type in a quote in the comments below.

What I'm looking for is:
- Why do you like Animorphs?
- What do you think the relaunch will give to a new generation that it gave to older fans?
- Are you excited for the relaunch or dreading it, and why?
- If you read the series when it was originally being printed, has it has any lasting effect on you through the years (job selection, personal life, anything like that)?

And please keep any quotes spoiler free.

Thanks guys!

Does "morphsuit" have another meaning I'm not aware of, or is this MLIA'er one of us?

Just popping in to say that - at least from here in Australia - we have ONE month until the re-release!!!!! (I mean not to mention my 22nd birthday or anything XD)

The point being is:



A new generation will love the books!


Someone else will fall in love with Marco or Jake or Tobias or Rachel or Cassie or Ax. (Um. Has anyone actually *had* a crush on Ax?) Someone will fear their neighbors just like we did or suspect everyone of being a Controller. There will be a new legion of fans, new fan letters, new fan arts.

Oh man... Can my birthday come any sooner?! :D

So [ profile] julygreen asked this in 2008, but I wanted to bring it back because of the re-release. :)

How did you get into Animorphs, and what is your personal history as a fan of the series?
[identity profile]
Guys! The books I ordered from Scholastic just arrived 2 seconds ago! As in, I opened the box and went to the computer to tell you all! So I haven't even cracked the covers yet! The lithograph morphs look cool though. I'll post more once I've read through them! So anyone who also ordered from scholastic, be expecting a package! :D
