So here we are, all our stuff from LJ should be here now, and from this point forward, the two communities (LJ and DW) will be on their own separate paths--this community will not be mirrored to LJ or vice versa. I still have to work on updating links/etc. on the DW profile, but that will eventually get finished. I'm gonna be honest, it will probably be May before I finish those updates, because my work has a hard deadline that I have to deal with for the next two weeks, and it's easiest to make the needed updates on my work computer.

At any rate, I think this calls for a celebratory discussion question: If you were an Andalite, what do you think your ultimate food would be?  I think mine would probably be Krispy Kreme hot donuts (if you've only had the one from the grocery/convenience store, the fresh, hot version is a REVELATION).

Move to DW

Hi, it's your friendly Animorphs mod. I know there is currently a bit of an exodus over to Dreamwidth/other journals happening. This community will remain here (and I will continue to maintain it), but I wanted to let everyone know that I will be archiving everything from here over on DW at animorphslj.dreamwidth.org, just in case. I've already started the process, but with so many people moving, it could be a day or more before this community is finished being archived. So if anyone is leaving LJ and moving over to DW, feel free to join us over there.

There is already an Animorphs community on DW, but its most recent entry is from 2014, so we're slightly more alive. (Yay?)

First things first, I realize that this place is not as active anymore.

To the topic:
I've seen this subject get tackled here before, but I have a different question...

What if you get pregnant while morphed? As in, reproduce while in animal form.
Would the pregnancy cancel out once you morph back, or would it somehow stay through the morphing?

Any headcanons?

Imzy?

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. imzy.com/animorphs . 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!

Hey Animorph fans, I'm looking for some rough, probably unscientific demographic information for the final episode of the Opinionated Animorphs Book Guide. If you could fill out the linked survey that'd be awesome. Also, share with any Ani-fans who might not come here? Thank you very much.

The Yeerks have declared open war and have begun herding people into the Yeerk Pool by the hundreds. The Animorphs are fighting and falling apart. Ax is given secret orders from his people. There's no joke in the description this time, this is some serious shit!

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?).

It's time to tell the government about the Yeerk invasion, so Marco, Tobias and Ax go to meet the governor. The problem is, they don't know the governor's name. Or her chromosomes.

Jake is depressed, Tobias is happy, Marco is dumb and Cassie is thinking logically. What mirror dimension did we walk into?

What happens when you cut an Animorphs book in half and put into a short story about the Civil War? Not much, actually.

Universal is developing an Animorphs movie and is looking for a director, apparently.

I have so many mixed feelings, but mostly I'm keeping expectations extremely low... I feel like it'd be extremely difficult to get things right and extremely easy to mess things up, but maybe we'll get some nice special effects at least... I dunno! It's interesting that someone involved with the TV series is on board, but I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, haha. XD

Thoughts?

Today we learn the origin of the Ellimist. What qualifies him to be an all-powerful deity? He plays a lot of video games!

Okay, I'm a terrible person (maybe not as terrible as David) because it's been a year since the last re-read, AND I left us hanging 2/3 of the way through a story arc. But let's move on now, shall we?

<Ax? Tell me something. When Jake sent you to get help, why did you come for me and not Marco or Cassie?>
<Prince Jake was specific. Get Rachel.>
<Did he say why?>
Ax hesitated a moment. Then he said, <Jake told me Tobias was probably dead. I said this was a terrible thing. And Prince Jake said, "Yes. If David's killed Tobias, we may have to do a terrible thing, too. Get Rachel.">


First off, this is one of my favorite books, if only for the number of emotional punches contained within. This is the first time the other Animorphs start to realize that Jake has become more than just the guy calling the shots--he's using them. Because he's a good leader, he's using them in ways that make sense, but subtly, possibly without even realizing it, and realizing what that means for each of them based on what Jake values them for is interesting. And of course, for Rachel, it's somewhat disturbing.

On top of that, we've got a guy who they tried to save, a guy who is only alive and free because they intervened, and he's trying to kill them. Not to mention, the whole leaders of the free world meet-up they've got to keep the Yeerks from taking advantage of. I love the way they handle stopping the Yeerks here, because it's actually the closest to fun they seem to have had in awhile. It's a bright spot of levity in what is an otherwise extremely dark book.

Then of course, there's the solution they come up with--or really, that Cassie comes up with--for handling David after he's made it clear they can't just leave him to his own devices. It's brilliant, but is it really the best solution? Should they have just killed him and been done with it? I always wonder just how Ax and Rachel really dealt with what they had to listen to at the end.

What did you like about this book? What did you not expect? How do you think you'd have reacted to everything if you had been David?


Next time: #23 The Pretender--the Ellimist continues to fuck with Tobias!
