For some reason, I never saw the mention in here. Yaaay! Sorry for the late reaction, @LeftyWriter, but I'm glad this is moving again!

And I look forward to reading that post, Wolfie!

Guess what I'm doing tomorrow for realz?

Posting that post.

It's almost done! But it's late right now and I'm practically falling asleep on the keyboard and I'm afraid the last few paragraphs I've written are just sleep-deprived gibberish.

I want to make it good since y'all have waited so long! Thanks for your patience!

EDIT: It's not good. But at least I posted yayyy

Jiiinnxxx! :D Great post, @Wolfical! I loved how you ended it. Epic Animorphing Cats to the rescue!

----------

I can try to post next, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to given that summer camps are 1 week away and I'm pretty swamped with prep. But I'll probably be able to find some time next week in the evenings to work on something if things go smoothly.

But if someone else would like to post before me, go right ahead!

Hey guys, I have the next week off from summer camps for the 4th of July, so I will (finally!) be working on an Animorpher post. I hope to have it up in the next day or two. Sorry for the delay!

It's up! I can't believe I haven't done a post since November. That was ages ago. And oh my gosh, there are so many characters right now. lol. Anyway, enjoy!

Please let me know if there's anything I should change or how I wrote anyone's characters (especially Charlotte @Wolfical and Michael @Steggy). Thanks!

P.S. I was reading back through Jinx's last post for reference and the Neon part is priceless. XD

Thanks, @Wolfical!

Yay! I had hoped I'd done Charlotte's character justice. Glad you liked it! :)

Gosh, I feel really bad for the new peeps and how this storybook started just over a year ago (happy belated birthday SB! *toots birthday horn*) and it took us this long to get to this point. But fortunately, I think the story is caught up to where it needs to be to really start with the next phase. At this point, I think most all of the plans have been completed, and from now on, anything can happen, which is super exciting! So if you guys still want to do this, I'm still totally in. And because anything can happen, I think this could turn into a really awesome, active storybook.

So, is there anyone who would like to post next? I'm not too concerned about "rounds" or people posting in a certain order, so anyone who would like to pick it up is welcome to!

Hello all.

So anybody who has written storybooks with me knows that I have a thing for resurrecting storybooks. I PMed Lefty and they said I'm welcome to come back and try to get things kickstarted. So I am going to try working on a post. If anyone is happy to interact with Penny, please let me know.

And prayers and proclamations

I think it's best that I let everyone know here that I've decided to become permanently less active in YWS. This means posts for Riley and Alex will be ver few and far between. If it gets to where I haven't posted for them in a while, im alright with other people posting for them where they feel it's necessary. I'll try to post at least semi-regularly, though.

As they say, all good things must come to an end. And as we near the new year, I think it would be best to officially bring the Animorphers Storybooks to a close.

When I posted the original storybook over three years ago, I had no idea what to expect or if it would take off at all. I remember posting it before bed, then waking up the next day to find the discussion topic had exploded with activity while I was offline with people eager to join. I was shocked and so excited at what the storybook might bring.

I had the best time chatting on the discussion topic, brainstorming and collaborating and creating this amazing story and fantastic characters with the best people. Laughing too hard at "navy seal" jokes, talking over PM about ideas and characters and generally obsessing over OTPs and getting a little too excited when I'd see a notification that a new post had been submitted.

When I started this storybook, I had very little experience in storybooks at all, so I didn't know what to expect or know what was the norm. Now, looking back on Animorphers, I feel like we struck gold. So many storybooks with great leaders and creative story ideas haven't gotten the attention they deserved, simply because they didn't reach the right people, or those who joined weren't the right mix for what the story needed to thrive. But for Animorphers, every single person brought something special and were so enthusiastic. And for that, I am so, so grateful. I have lived in this world for three years, and I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to do so. Without you guys, the storybook never would have made it past page 1.

After three years, 1 officially completed storybook, 1 win for best storybook, and 1 tie for best storybook, we have had an amazing run, and as 2018 comes to a close, it feels like the right time to finally say goodbye to these storybooks.

STATS:
Discussion Topic Posts - 1861
Storybook Posts - 134
Storybook Word Count - 193,914 words

I learned so much through this experience and made some really great friends. Thank you all for these past three years. You are the BEST and I hope we can work together again in the future!

In honor of how we ended 1.0...

Animorphers Everybody!!!!

Since we're reflecting on the past, congratulations on the achievements you and your cast attained for the previous storybook, @LeftyWriter! Concluding an SB is fiendishly difficult, so I have no doubt your efforts inspired many. Your enthusiasm and dedication is truly commendable!

Are we going to have another "blow up the DT until we reach page 100" party? d:

Animorphers was a blast, and it's incredible what we all were able to accomplish! 2.0 reached three pages, and that's super impressive in itself. I have so many fond memories associated with this storybook and the people in it. Thank you so much, Lefty, for being the most enthusiastic dungeon master I've ever had the pleasure of working with, and for inspiring the rest of us (as Hunter said) to reach for the storybook stars! You. Are. Awesome.
