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:

I haven't seen Land Before time in...eight years, easily, and I when I saw this I REMEMBERED THE SONG, I started singing it. It's like muscle memory. Gah. Loved those movies.

CHOMPER. He was my favorite.

And Dresden Dolls <3. Recognized that immediately.

How about I comment on the actual ART? HM? I never actually read/watched animorphs before, but my brother had the books, and I would look at the covers because I loved how it showed the process of them changing into the animal and I was like "COOOOOOOOL" and my brother was like "GET OUT OF MY ROOM."

AAHAHHHH I am so glad ye remember that and like it. xD I love it too, SO HARD. :crying: And I still baw at it, yes.

Animorphs is LOVE. Seriously. One of those things (RATHER LIKE LBT) that you see/read as a kid and never quite... /get/ how powerful it is until later.

Yeah; I only uploaded it here AFTER the artists were revealed, I figure that's not against the rules. Man, that was an amazing competition! So many talented people!

Cosmic Castawaaaaay 8D

Oh gosh, it's been ages since I read Animorphs. I think I still have one of the specials floating around. The one about... what ever Ax's race was called (been too loooong D8) before the whole fiasco started and they found Earth. I loved it so much. I should go find it again. D8

BUT YES. Your coloring is absolutely lovely and the whole picture is amazing. 8D :heart: Especially Tobias' bit. But I had/have a soft spot for him.

YE APPROVE OF THIS SONG CHOICE? AWESOME. :la:

The Andalite Chronicles? :) That's a wonderful book. I also seriously recommend The Hork-Bajir Chronicles and Visser - all of those hardcover semi-stand-alone books are just awesome. I actually need to get another copy of The Andalite Chronicles; I lost my copy years ago. ;_;

Thank you so much! I'm so glad ye like this.

YESSUM I DO. :la: But I'm 100% biased when it comes to that song because I love Titan AE. Which is where I first heard it.

Yes, that one! I reread it so many times that I'm pretty sure the spine's going. :'D Man, I hadn't realized just how long it had been since I read the series. Hork-Bajir Chronicles, eh? I'll have to keep an eye open for it!
... I think I need to figure out where my copy of The Andalite Chronicles went now.

Wow...

It's been... at least a decade since I read any Animorphs books. At the time, it seemed cool, but looking back on it now, the premise is so silly.

It's that kind of thing where the premise sounds silly, and it's remarkably better than it sounds. I'm re-reading the books and... Damn, there's some fucked-up things in it.

The only cool thing I can remember about the Animorphs was that the aliens responsible for giving the kids powers decided to use vertically-curving walkways instead of elevators to get from one level to another in their spaceships.

He was always a real hero, in the way he was portrayed, he usually had a job to do and did it, it sucked cause of the struggle of his brother having one of those aliens in his head though.

Absolutely. Jake... is a war general in a teenager's body. I love them all, but maybe my soft-spot is a little softer for Jake, simply because... God. Nobody should have to make the kind of decisions he did. Ever.

This... this has totally inspired me to go track down the books I'm still missing from that series. I've been meaning to do it forever so I could reread them all...

It has also made me cry like a baby, 'If We Hold on Together' has that effect on me. Also, Rachel. For some reason seeing Rachel just made me think of the last book. Commence endless tears. :(

I do really love how you drew Cassie, though :heart: Tobias too. And Cosmic Castaway is an awesome choice for Ax.

And oh good I'm kind of glad I made ye cry because I might have been a little soupy while DRAWING CASSIE and listening to that song because it's... just so perfect for her. It is. And it's so PRETTY. :heart:

Oh god yes, it's a gorgeous song. I have rewound the credits of my Land Before Time tape to DEATH listening to that song. It just makes me so sniffly. Because my horrible mind can't help but link it to all my favorite characters that didn't get a happy ending in show... Seriously, this song with the image of a character who died in canon = instant tears.

Oh jeez, it always makes me cry too. :crying: Especially if you go with the LBT theory that they all actually died in the earthquake and the Great Valley is a metaphor for going to Heaven.

:icondeath-star510:
Death-star510 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2011
Oh I hate that theory so much because it just makes way too much sense. (At least until the sequels started.) LBT is just full of depressing things actually. It's a wonder kids made it through without being traumatized or something. You could say that about a lot of old kids' movies really.

I KNOW, SERIOUSLY. Don Bluth, man. :lol: Keeping child psychiatrists in business since... whenever he started making movies.

I actually LOVE that theory because I like the idea of them being in heaven as opposed to having to suffer through all these shitty sequels. :3

The first couple of sequels weren't all that bad. Of course I was also like three years old when the second one came out. Three year olds aren't known for their brilliant taste in movies. :lol: Still, I kind of like the second and third ones, even with the singing. They hadn't quite reached the heights of horribleness that the latest ones got to. (Have you seen what they've done to the animation in some of the last ones? It's ridiculous.)

:< I have not seen the later animation though, no.
