The new models for the rerelease of the books have been revealed and it's causing something of a stir within the Animorphs community. In the books, Marco is explicitly described as being half-Hispanic, with darker skin and hair. The model chosen however, is white. Nezumi9 asked us to pass on the message and to tell our members about a petition to change it. Her original message is below.

"As you probably know, the new cover models for the re-release have just been posted www.scholastic.com/animorphs/c… and we on the LJ Animorphs community think that the Marco model doesn't fit his character's description at all. I've created a petition to change it www.ipetitions.com/petition/ma… and I was wondering if you could post a blog entry about it? Any signatures are really appreciated and I'd love your help. ^_^"
The scheduled chat event has begun! So far it's just me and kryptocow, so come on down!

I am going to suggest a time.

You tell me if it works for you.

EDIT: The time has been moved forward by one hour. Hopefully, it still works for all the people that said it would work. And hopefully, it works better for everyone else.

So the time is:

Saturday, January 29, 2010
1:00 PM PST
2:00 PM MST
3:00 PM CST
4:00 PM EST
10:00 PM in Berlin

It's a week away, so we can fiddle with it.

And I'm still open to all suggestions for event themes.
Also, I'd love more information on the schedules of all interested people. :)

And in case you forgot what I'm talking about here, I'm trying to arrange a chat event for Animorphs fans.
The chat room can be found here: chat.deviantart.com/chat/TheJa…
The original journal entry on the subject: animorphs.deviantart.com/blog/…
This is something that other groups have done, with great success. I thought it might be a nice idea for getting Animorphs fans together.
Basically, I would create a chat room and we would plan events that any interested members and watchers could attend. Is this something that we might be interested in doing? I figure it shouldn't be too difficult to find a time that works for most people, since we don't have a huge number of members. Unless that's me just being hopelessly optimistic. ;) If you are interested in this idea, please comment. Also, I'm welcome to any ideas for events. I've already thought of organized rp and fan-fiction writing, line by line. I'm open to all ideas. :D

EDIT: The chat room has been made. Find it here: chat.deviantart.com/chat/TheJa… Now to plan an event. :D

EDIT 2: If everyone that's interested could please give some times that they're usually available, I'll see about getting a time set up that works for as many people possible.
Been a while since we had a new journal entry, so how about something fun?

On Thursday, as I was wandering around the Los Angeles Airport, I meandered past a Cinnabon. My very first thought? Animorphs, of course. Moments like these are not all that uncommon for me. I think of Tobias every, single time that I see a red-tailed hawk. It doesn't matter that it's been a while since I read any of the books and it doesn't matter that I'm almost twenty.

So here's my question: Do any of you ever have Animorphs moments? And if so, when? And why? How not alone am I in the universe of the Animorphs fandom? :D
