The Kids Are All Right by TheSylverLining The Kids Are All Right by TheSylverLining
:iconfeelingfreeplz::iconsaysplz:HIT "DOWNLOAD!" IT'S HUGE AND LOVELY! That's what she said!

My entry for the first fanart/fiction contest at the Animorphs LJ community. :) Animorphs.Livejournal.com - come check us out!

The subject was "The Six Animorphs," and I chose to make bookmarks with the lyrics of songs I feel represents each one of them.

You can has! Print out, cut apart, use as bookmarks! :3

Much loves went into this. Couldn't resist giving Cassie the sticks and flowers in her hair, giving Jake a Purple Heart and Medal of Honor, or... what Tobias' shirt says. :heart:

You know, I was thinking about Tobias permanently becoming human again while still being able to morph, as well as morphing having no time limit and being genetic. Any ideas?

Oh, Tobias. I remember reading the scene in the books, you know, where he turns into a hawk forever...BAWLED MY EYES OUT. I didn't read many of the other books after that, to be honest. Who knows? Maybe he became a human again.

Actually, I need to reread those. They were brilliant.

Oh gosh you should, because they are wonderful. And I believe that happened in the first book. xD But it's okay, understandable, because it WAS pretty traumatic.

I won't spoil shit for you... but it DOES get better for him. <3

They are fantastic. But while ten year old me was very literary, it did make me very very sad at the time, and I stopped and headed for happier things.

Oh, really? That's brilliant. <33 Have to go back and catch up, then.

I hear you. Animorphs... was intense. I'm serious. It's even MORE apparent when you go back and read them all grown up, because now you can actually comprehend the sheer /horror/ of some of the concepts, and realize just how truly terrifying, disturbing, and all-around upfucked they are.

I honestly think that the only thing that made them classified as childrens' books were the length, and the fact that the main characters were young. They... aren't, not really. I know that sounds silly, but. It's a war. Animorphs is not about kids turning into animals. It's about how war changes you, the psychology of it, the transformations everyone goes through, how you rise to it or fall. Nobody comes out the other side whole. Or maybe it took a war to make them whole.

Seriously, you could write freaking academic papers on that story. I'd still kind of like to.

It was one of the most accurate war stories I've ever read, to be honest. Especially when you're talking about war's effect on children, because they were still children, after all. Some of those themes in there are ridiculously powerful, ridiculously well-done. Those books are so under-appreciated.

Wouldn't that be the best. job. ever? It totally would. Ah well, I'm going into physics, which will also be the coolest job ever, because, you know, STAR TREK.

As for theme songs, does anyone else think that the song 'Sound the Bugle' by Bryan Adams fits Tobias perfectly when he's really struggling with the whole 'trapped as a hawk killing and eating raw meat' thing?

I will finally admit, I don't actually know what Animorphs are - HOWEVER, regardless, loving your pictures of them!

I love how you have such music in your work. It's as if you can't sever the ties between the music and the art, they are just one. I think Cassie's my favourite here, I love how you've drawn her hair and that is my favourite type of sky :heart:

:giggle: Remind me to babble at you all about how awesome Animorphs is when I'm not at school.

:O I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. You drew them all so well (though may I ask why Ax has white hair? e.o) and the lyrics fit them perfectly. But I feel so bad, I've never actually heard any of those songs. 'OTL Well, I was a LBT fan when I was a little kid and the lyrics sound vaguely familiar but I can't for the life of me even remember LBT having a theme song so FAIL.

Also, what does Tobias' shirt say?

Aw, thank ye so much! :) I'm so glad ye like this. I just tend to draw Andalites with white hair, even though it was never stated in the books. Just... seems right, I dunno why. :lol: I'm weird.

LOOK UP THESE SOOOONGS. :la: THEY'RE FUN. And ohgod the LBT ending theeeeeme. ;-; I still cry at it. Bad.

Tobias' shirt (partially cut off, intentional) says <HOPE.> :heart: A recurring theme/arc words from The Andalite Chronicles.

<Why are humans so looked down-upon by other races? Granted, they make very little sense as a species and do very strange things, but... Surely their culinary achievements deserve some recognition.>
"I don't know, kid, I guess some people just don't value cheeseburgers quite as highly as you do. See, we were born with mouths."
<I see. Then this does not factor in to your desire to help them regain their home?>
