Just stumbled on your story while trying to find my own fan fiction I posted, and I gotta say, I am HOOKED. Keep going please! I am interested on how it's all going to tie it. You're very good :)

I'll try and let you know, but it happens a lot.  Too bad if you tried searching for quotation marks it would just assume you were specifying search parameters...

My Dad talks that way all the time (I do a bit, too), where we'll talk about things without providing any frame of reference to the audience.  So it's something I notice, because I'm trying to pay attention to it myself, and I love calling my Dad out when he does it.

Trying to work on the multiple narrator thing. I get it. For the reader, it can be a bit confusing. For me, the author, it's he said, she said, constantly over and over, so it gets a bit tedious identifying the speaker and it's an easy thing for me to drop. Let me know specific areas and I can fix it.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback, sorry it took me so long.

Chapter 22

Love it so far (around Chapter 20).  I love the twists that you've thrown in, and I'm wondering if certain characters will survive the first book.  Characters that didn't survive the first book in the original, but are still alive at this point.  One criticism I have is that sometimes there's quotes with no name attached, and it's not always easy (for me, anyway) to tell by context who is talking.

Chapter 21

Seriously, does no one comment on this forum? Has anyone posted on AO3 that hasn't posted here?

So now I'm up to just shy of 800 hits and still no comments...

Oh well, here's Chapter 20...

Hmm...

I didn't get Chapter 19 posted till about 2:30AM, EST so I decided to wait till morning to post the link. I'm probably just going to either slide into a Thursday-Sunday schedule for awhile, and that itself may become a Friday-Monday goal by the end of the book, but I'm going to keep aiming for two chapters per week.

Ahh, the joys of killing all my free time.

Chapter Twenty is likely going to be a little late because I want to revisit my outline. I planned this as a roughly thirty-chapter novel, so I want to make sure I'm on point for the last round of chapters.

I had some minor writer's block with Chapter 18 and ended up taking the kids to a minor league baseball game the other night, so I'm a bit behind. Still aiming to have the next chapter on Wednesday.

The Hork-Bajir and Taxxons will appear soon.

 . . . I probably should have seen that coming.  :P  Yeerk Pool, and all.

As far as Cassie, she's intuitive, empathic, an environmentalist, and she's attuned to her emotions. I just made her more confident.

Yeah, I guess you didn't actually change her that much, it's just so weird to see her and Jake in such a straightforward relationship.  It still makes sense that they would be, they are sixteen and that's the age where such things accelerate much more quickly than at the tender age of twelve.

Also, I can't get the quote "Hot dildo monkeys!" out of my brain.  There's a thing that original-books-Cassie would never say.  :P

Finally got a chance to read this, and, just, holy crap.  You've managed to change the story at all the exact right points, to make it into something completely new and all your own.  I'm glad I saw the version of an Andalite you're working on as a 3D model, because the way you described Elfangor in your book, I just can't picture him any other way.  He seems so much more alien, the way you've written him, and the deer-centaur concept would not have done him justice.  Makes me curious about how you'll depict Ax, when they get around to meeting him.  But right now I mostly just can't wait to see the Yeerk Pool OMFG.  It took me a while to notice the lack of Hork-bajir and Taxxons anywhere in the story thus far, which is simultaneously weird to me for an Animorphs book and yet makes perfect sense in your story.

The only thing I was going to point out was how out-of-character you've portrayed Cassie . . . but then I got to thinking, and actually that's an improvement, too.  :XD:
