sent to 409 people this week, it's the .… ------------------------- ANIMORPHS ~ weekly ~ NEWSLETTER ------------------------- ISSUE #121 WEEK OF OCTOBER 22, 2000 <HI EVERYONE!> New official summary this week And not much to say here, so read on....! &&&&&&&&& AW FORUM &&&&&&&&& Last week's forum: what would be the most amazing thing to happen in the series? "Hmm... I'd have to say the most amazing thing would be all the Animorphs dieing, the but battle for Earth being won... it'd be... a shock. Their secret never being known... eh, I'll let you ponder more." - Meg "The most amazing thing to happen in the series would be for the Yeerks to discover the Iskoort way of life: symbiotisism (sp?). They should take any willing humans and other aliens and infest *them* and live in harmony and everyone would be happy and Jake would get married to Cassie, Tobias would permanently become human, and Rachel and him would marry, and Cassie would start the IGCOP, Inter-galactic Confederation of Peace. And the Andalites would come to earth and share their technology and I'm going on and on and this is a big run-on sentence and I'm going to end it now with this little booger called a period." - zeahorse "I think the most amazing thing could be the Andalite actually showing up. I mean they were there shortly in Book #1 and have had a few visits by Psycos. I think that if the Andalite actualy showed up would be the amazing thing" - Moose "The most amazing thing that would happen to the series would be if it got some better writers! No, wait, that was a stupid answer. Um........well, I think that if an Animorph ACTUALLY died, that would be amazing, because I'm sure it'll never happen. Or, if the series would end soon, that would be amazing, too, because I don't think very many people want it to end, excluding me. I'm not that creative, I know....." -Andrew "hmm... for the Andalites to actually come. I mean, right now, it doesn't look like it's gonna happen, ya know? So, that's what I think." - Steph This week's forum question is: what couple in Animorphs do you think has the strongest bond and why? %%%%%%% AW POLL %%%%%%% Last week's poll question was: what next Chonicles should K.A. do? Taxxon 4 Pemalite/Chee 4 All six Animorphs 1 This week's poll question is: would you want the next couple books (#53 and above) to be a COMPLETE surprise? Please send in your poll response to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "poll" as the subject. Thanks! ====== NEWS ====== There's not a lot of new this week. - Here is the EXCLUSIVE official short summary for #50 The Ultimate!: The Animorphs have hit a wall. Jake is depressed and sapped of confidence. They're living in isolation in the free Hork-Bajir colony with no means of stepping up the resistance. The time has come for the ultimate risk. And, B&N posted a new cover of #50. It's a bit clearer than the last one, and that ugly dot isn't in the way! You can see it here: http://a1204.g.akamai.net/7/1204/1401/00102310011/images.barnesandnoble.com/images/3300000/3302230.gif - Two new responses to a dead Animorph sent in by Marcus: "I think that it will be David because: David IS still an Animorph, he's justnow a nothlit and marooned on an island; KA, I don't think wants to hurt anybody's feelings by killing off one of the main characters; and lastly, The Animorphs need to destroy David anyway...If he gets off the island once already, he could just as well do it again, and thats one of the last things they want. Well, I just felt like I'd to share that with y'all." From Meg: "Well, I wanted to comment on who dies... I think it is one of the Animorphs, not David, because going off the Ellimist Chronicles, which was a grand book, he states a couple of things. First off, it 'is' one of the six Animorphs: Jake, Cassie, Marco, Rachel, Tobias and Ax. This discludes David. Next up, he states it was an accident to get them involved. I agree with the post in the last newsletter, it therefore is not Tobias nor Ax. ((Ax is possible, but doubtful.)) Next up, the one dying wanted to know if they made a difference, if they mattered. I think this cancels out Cassie, because if you remember Cassie was the one that brought them back from the wrong dimension, she still remembered the Crayak's traitorous secret against Jake and Jake's decision, so she knows they mattered, she knows they tipped the scales. Now we are down to Jake, Marco and Rachel. At this point, I can't tell you. I doubt Marco and believe it to be Jake, but I'm not sure. I could be wrong, it's all guessing at this point, and really, shouldn't do that... :P Anyway, that's my input. BTW, The war is running down. The battles are coming out and the Animorphs are recruiting non-controllers to fight... it's running down, she won't renew the contract. Honestly, I think it's good she ends the series... else it'd get old... like Goosebumps did." - I don't have #47 or Ellimist Chron. yet but I will get it FOR SURE this week (if not on Halloween)! +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ ON THE BOOK CHARTS +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ For the first time ever, #46 The Deception stays where it is at 117 from 117 last week! <><><><><><><><><><><><> WEB PAGE OF THE WEEK <><><><><><><><><><><><> Ani-Reviews http://www.crosswinds.net/~nightiger/AniReview.html ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ CLOSING REMARKS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks for reading this week’s issue!
