Plot
In a distant future... tensions between countries are high.

The Japanese are in the first steps of developing animal-human technology for the sole purpose of allowing people to change their appearance for fashion trends and social status. But when the US gets wind of the project, they see a much bigger picture and steal it for themselves to advance the technology and create an army of super soldiers.

Taking the blueprints and research for a prototype that was never built, they tweak and advance the technology until they come up with the first working experiment: a chair which-using a mixture of radiation and a special serum-changes the DNA of those who use it to give them the ability the morph into a specific animal. While some of the original scientists were killed upon retrieval of the research, some were captured and forced to help them develop the technology.

The chair and Morphing Formula is created in a Top Secret laboratory, tweaking the original research to make the formula stronger, better, and more powerful. The laboratory and it's experiment is so secret in fact, that they couldn't risk a medical trial or telling people they've hired as lab rats the truth about their experiment. No, they have to be much more secretive...

Twelve high school sophomore students get the opportunity of a life time when their science class-and only their class-gets to go on a field trip to a working laboratory. Little do they know, their science teacher Mr. Neil is one of the scientists working on the Animorph project and is using his job as a science teach as cover. And little do they know, they're going to become test subjects on the project. And if everything goes according to plan... they may be the first recruits in what the US hopes will be their new army of super soldiers.

But the Japanese find out who took their research... and what they're using it for. Being one of the US's biggest enemies in this distant future, they realize Japan will be one of the first targets of the super army. So, the Japanese secret service burns down the lab and kills all the scientists they could find in the hopes of ending USA's attempt to create a super army and possibly take over the world... starting with Japan.

As if the ability to morph into animals isn't enough for these twelve teens to handle, Mr. Neil has gone missing-leaving them to figure everything out for themselves and now they feel themselves being watched. By who? They're not sure... The reality? Japan discovers the experiment had already been started and have set out to hunt down and kill the test subjects while the USA is trying to recover them and use their blood to continue the experiments, because they're the only piece of the experiment that survived. And they're not the only ones to catch onto these teens... A rebel organization is watching them, deciding whether to kill them, help them, or try to recruit them.

While working to figure out their new found abilities and trying their best to stay out of the crosshairs of these mysterious organizations, the biggest challenge of all may be deciding who they can trust... or if they can trust anyone at all.

NOW, the government has recreated the experiment and this time, the unsuspecting subjects are barely teens. In fact, they're orphans. When the original Animorphers discover the second lab, they work with a rebel group, The Protectorate, to destroy it. And when they discover the new set of subjects, they risk everything to rescue them. Now, these kids on the same path they were, and it's all they can do to help them through the process... and try not to get eaten.

Communication
The Animorphers have discovered they can communicate telepathically. They call this "thoughtspeak". It allows them to talk to each other in their minds whether they're in human form or in animal form. But only the Animorphers can hear it. Family members can't receive it and other animals are oblivious.

Ability To Morph and Partial Morph
When in transition and their DNA is changing... they may have issues with partial morphing such as getting animal fangs, eyes, claws, tails, etc... that they can't control as well as fully morphing against their will.

Once the transition is completed... they will be able to control it better and can only fully-morph. They cannot enhance their senses (hearing, sight, etc...) while they're in human form. However, when emotions are heightened, they may have trouble controlling their new abilities and have some issues with glowing eyes, growling, claws and fangs coming through.

I had a spot reserved as well for an early animorpher. I'll get her CP up tomorrow. For now, I'll claim rabbit as her animal and go to bed.

I'm interested in joining - I'll have a think about which animal/ what character over the next few days and then put a profile in. Any idea what the gender balance is/ what you might be missing?

@LeftyWriter Thank you so much for inviting me and for all the effort and hard work you've been putting into this SB(s). I'm sad to say that I probably shouldn't join again because 1) we're adopting again and 2) I'm starting college in August, which will be another huge life transition.
I just wanted to thank you for being such an incredible SB leader. You've always been so friendly, understanding, and a true leader, and it means a lot to me that you continued to reach out even after I left last year. I wish you all the very best and I'll continue to stalk this story. I'm so interested in where it will lead! :) Thanks again!

Well, now that it's the middle of summer for me, most of my SBs are quiet and/or inactive, I want to write with SBers I'm not well acquainted with for a change, and I'm still interested in the idea, I think I'd like to join this Storybook. I worry I might not be as reliable when I enter my senior year of high school in mid-August, but I think I can keep with the requirements here and cooperate where necessary. I'd like a couple of days at the most to come up with a character, but I think my animal of choice here will be an otter (a fox already being taken). Let's see if we can have a lot of fun and finish the second edition of this Storybook! :D
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per ciò che giammai di questo fondo
non tornò vivo alcun, s'i' odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

Inferno, Canto 27, l 61-66.

Hey, @Rydia! I'm so glad you're interested in joining! I'm not sure which characters will sign up again, but based on which characters we had in 1.0., the gender balance is exactly equal.

All of those character ideas look amazing! Red Pandas are cool and Okapi are very different, which are both awesome choices. The only other character we have right now that has hooves is Charlotte with her Thompson's Gazelle, so I could see her maybe mentoring your character a little given their animal similarities.

I personally love the picture of the 11-year-old girl (EDIT: third) from the top, and the pic of the 14-year-old boy third from the bottom. :D

Aww, thanks @Sonder! <3 <3 <3

And no worries! I know you have a lot on your plate right now. I know the road to this adoption has been a little bumpy, but I hope everything with the adoption and college in the future goes smoothly!

@TheSilverFox

Hey, Silver! Thanks for your interest!

The posting requirements are definitely going to be more relaxed than the first time around. This time, each round will last two weeks and if there are people that haven't posted by the end of those two weeks, we will move on unless they request a round extension to get their post in. That way, people only have to post in the rounds that they want to and those who want to post each round don't have to wait for others to catch up, and we can keep the storybook moving and put less pressure on those who can't always get a post in.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Which animals have already been picked? I'm hesitant to commit just yet, but I'm definitely more able to now.

EDIT: Four comments? O_o @LeftyWriter, you know you can respond to multiple people in the same comment, right? :P

Hey, @AstralHunter! I know I can respond to multiple people in one post. I just thought I would respond to everyone individually.

The current list of taken animals is:

Lion
Tiger
Lynx
Wolf
Barn Owl
Martial Eagle
Fox
Capuchin Monkey
Kitten
Gazelle
Rabbit
EDIT: Dingo

I have it listed in the top DT post now as well for easy access.

Dingo is also taken.

Because it's beautiful, it's tough, it's buried in our mythic, childhood memories.
It's covered with human triumphs but also with sad stories of failure.
