As I mentioned in a comment on FFN, Tobias having the elephant morph was kind of a weird accident, honestly. I was writing their trip to the zoo, and obviously a lot of the key plot points here are borrowed from #01: The Invasion, but what I never noticed about that book as a kid is that while Tobias and Cassie do go to the zoo, whatever they acquire there is never used. Tobias shows up at the school in the hawk morph he acquired from the WRC, and when Cassie morphs in the Yeerk pool, she goes to the horse she acquired from her barn. Cassie was easy, I just gave her the wolf morph. Tobias was trickier. I was really considering giving him a jaguar morph, but that idea never gained any traction. It occurred to me that while Rachel morphs an elephant in the first book, after #07: The Stranger, her default battle morph is the grizzly, and she doesn't use the elephant so much after that. So I figured if I'm going to have the bear and the wolf in the fight, between a horse and an elephant, the only one I really would miss in a fight would be the elephant.

Whoops, missed a chapter.  Great work, as always! 

(Tobias should have taken two hits, not "two hit", FYI).

This is somewhere between fan fiction and reboot.  I think the fact you're doing it for free is because the IP belongs to KA Applegate and/or Scholastic.  If you can get the rights to the IP, then maybe you can do a reboot.  Either way, I'm glad you're having fun writing it, because I'm having fun reading it.

Of course, now I want to do my own.  Like, a reboot of your reboot, where once again they are older.  Where Jake is an Army Ranger veteran, Cassie is his wife who is a veterinarian, Rachel is an aspiring MMA fighter, Marco is a programmer at Amazon or Microsoft (this one takes place in my neck of the woods: the Pacific Northwest), and Tobias is...uh...well I've figured out 4 out of 5.  Maybe he's a Youtuber.  Actually that might work.

Anyway, love your work.  Keep it up!

Naw, I'll just assume you don't like me and take a personal offense.

Hey, if ever I don't respond to a comment (and I really need to check out RAF more often), hit me up on the Animorphs group on Facebook.

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.
