Hi there~
« on: September 26, 2015, 01:49:02 AM »
Hello, I'm Xalder. I was a decent fan of Animorphs when I was a kid. Read some of the books thanks to my local library and ended up owning a couple myself, along with the PS1 game. I came across this site when I was looking for some way to get all the books onto my kindle, as Amazon only had the remakes available (apparently they update the pop culture references which would probably diminish the experience of getting back into the series (of course most of you probably know this already, too)). Thanks for those PDF's by the way~

So I've been reading through those for the past week. Was a little uncertain about reading Andalite to start off, fearing potential spoilers, but the biggest thing doesn't seem to have much effect as of Megamorphs + the prologue of book 8, another big thing was more just foreshadowing something I sort of knew about from what books in the series I have read. I hope to finish the series before I ship out for the Navy on November 30th. Lots of binge-reading.

As for myself, I'm 21 years old, finished an associate's degree at my community college just this past summer, and am currently unemployed as I wait around until I ship out for the Navy. I like to go for walks at the nearby dam that goes across the Mississippi River and read my kindle as I walk. I also enjoy playing video-games and watching TheStrawhatNO! on youtube. I'm quite familiar with online forums, having spent about 3 or 4 years with one that I still visit regularly, and have a couple others that I like to check on once in a while.

I hope to get to know some of my fellow Animorph fans~

Waffles are fine and dandy but I don't eat them very often. o:

Not envious of that at all. You pull too many hours, your berthing always smells, and your co workers will be the weirdest and most creepiest of folk. Have fun with the worst six years of your life.

On the bright side, you make lots of money and get promoted fast.

It's all good, I may hide it well enough when I first join a new forum, but I am an extremely weird and creepy person so I'm sure I'll be fine.

I mean I'm on a forum for fans of Animorphs, aren't I?
