Congrats
You all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans,
To take it

Be careful what you wish for. Okay, here goes:

My fellow Animorph fans. I am one of the blessed few who has been with the series since its genesis. I still vividly recall the day I cracked the spine of The Invasion mere days after its publication here in the United States of America. On that day, in that single moment, my life was changed forever. I was set on a path from which there could be no turning back. It became an addiction of mine. There were times when all I did was wait for the chance to read another book.
For years, it was beautiful. The books were published in abundance. Bookstores and schools carried them in surplus. I could count on a new book reaching me every month. I changed and grew with the Animorphs themselves. I shared their good times and their bad. I celebrated when they destroyed the Kandrona; I cried with them (inside, since I don't remember every crying externally) during the hardships. It was truly a beautiful time.
But then the Famine came. I blame the television show. Stores suddenly had less and less books. They became increasingly more difficult to find. Ghostwriters took over the series; a change that I noticed even at my tender age. The books became harder and harder to find until, in that final, dark hour, punctuated by
Spoiler:
Rachel's death
and the end of the series, I could find them no more.
I moved on with my life. I read other books, other great masterpieces. I came to know and love other characters even as much as I loved the Animorphs. I was even able to see the series in a way that I never could as a small child. At least twice a year, I would read back through all the books I owned; even now, if someone reads me a few lines from one of those books, I can tell you exactly what was going on and what book it was. Still, there was always that nagging feeling, that sense of dissatisfaction that I had never read the entire series.
And then, on one glorious day, I found a forum that would offer me eBooks for free. All I had to do was make 5 posts on their site. I made my posts and at last filled that hole in my memory. But the people and the conversations I found on that forum kept me returning for more.
Now, I stand before you, clad in the green of a Global Moderator. it is my solemn duty to preserve the integrity of this site and to make sure that all who wish to return, as I did, to the Animorphs fold are welcomed properly and treated as the long lost friends they are, bound to us all through their love (or at least like) of the series. I accept this duty without hesitation or regret. I only hope that I can live up to the standards set by my predecessors. :cry:

How was that? I think it was pretty good for coming off the top of my head. I even turned on the tears for you.

Uh...I don't think so. I don't think I have the authority or the physical capabilities to do it. Ask Snoopy or Ellimist.
