Alright #Animorphs fans who wrote to me in 1999: I’m on it.
I’m gonna try to do a thing!
Okay I just saw that video of Vin Diesel dancing to “Dark Horse” and I am 99% sure he’s got an Andalite on his mousepad.
WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE.
One of the many things I love about the Animorphs is that KA Applegate and Michael Grant never talk down to the readers—like KA said, if they were going to write a war story, then they were going to write a war story—they were going to write death and PTSD and depression and guilt and horror and difficult decisions and consequences and how winning on a big scale can mean losing on a small one.
And, as a result, they created a story that still resonates with fans almost 15 years later. And that’s pretty amazing.
here’s an andalite woo. i did this in one sitting because i hate myself. took about four hours or so.
LET’S DO IT!
The first-ever Animorphs Big Bang Challenge
What is a Big Bang? It’s a fanworks challenge where fandom communities encourage their writers to write long-form fan fiction, which is then given to an artist who will provide art based on the fic.

Look at this gem I found on Amazon.
Friends I have an affliction. I spent an hour or so trying to draw something purposeful and got no where. I scribbled in frustration and BAM, gay andalite. It wasn’t even a thing. I can draw nothing but andalites, but it could be worse, it could NOT be andalites.
