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.

Library Display
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:Collapse )
Let me know what you think!

Animorphs Fandom Demographic Survey
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.

Animorphs icon image ideas?
brooklyn boy
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 live action movie
cass, default
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

Series Re-Read: #22 The Solution
animorphs mod hat
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!

Animorphs books where Visser 3 inst the main antagonist ??
I've been reading animorphs books and Im getting really tired of reading of Visser 3 and his convoluted plans for catching the animorphs. I'm currently in book nine, but my favorite books so far have been number 5 and 6. I want to read more about the Yeerk Empire and Visser One and other interesting villains. If this book series continues to funnel out Visser 3's over the top james bond villian type of schemes Im not sure If I can endure.
