Marco on the other hand (assuming it's Rachel), I most certainly see taking a peek or perhaps caught brazenly staring and Tobias, shyly sneaking a look.


I've always wondered if the description of Zero-Space being purely white was a KASU.
How can nothingness 'emit light white' shouldn't Z-Space be pure blackness?
I'm not even sure if this qualifies as a KASU or just a technical nitpick but I'd thought I'd put it out there.

TwistyWristy
Z-Space has different properties than regular space, and as such it could possibly, for some reason, make the absence of light look white rather than black. How, I have no idea. But it's possible.
What is not the answer to this question?

That is part of why it was such a big deal that Visser 1 had children through her human host in the Visser Chron.

If Marco would have peeked at Rachal then he never would have lived long enough to find out that his mother was still alive.

I just found a definite KASU: If the Andalites managed to create the Q-One-Eighteen Quantum virus to eradicate the Hork-Bajir in The Hork-Bajir Chronicles, why wasn't Estrid able to create her anti-Yeerk pathogen as easily? It just doesn't add up. I mean, even though the lab was destroyed, surely the Andalites weren't stupid enough to have all the information and Arn technology in just that one place? Wouldn't they have a back-up stash of data and technology that Estrid could have used?
There is much that is beyond the Ellimist . . . he just won't admit it.
Check out my fanfic series, Novamorphs. It has the Animorphs' children fighting a second Yeerk invasion. First book: The Infestation.Second book: The Search.

I don't think that's a KASU, and here's why.

For it to be a KASU, Estrid would have to have full access to the same stuff that the Andalites used to make the Quantum Virus in the HorkChron. Aside from many possibilities (like the possibility that the Andalites destroyed the necessary information so that there couldn't be a repeat of what happened to the Hork-Bajir), we know for certain that Estrid was on a rogue mission. All of her resources came from Arbat, and while he had power, he probably didn't have full access to all that information. And as we saw, her lab for making this virus consisted of a room in an old, out-dated ship that was used mainly to transport dead bodies. While the necessary knowledge might have still be available, it was probably not available to her, nor were the necessary resources.

Here's a pretty major KASU I found.
Spoiler:
In book 53, Tom disables the Pool ship's engines by blowing them up with the Blade ship's Dracon cannon. But in book 54, they are still able to drive the Pool ship to a location the Andalites specify.

<That's not a KASU, because the ship was alive and could heal in no time. Wait, that's not right...>

I found one in book 48 when Super-Raquel and Visser 3/1(he's one at this point)morphs from a reptiel acid shooting thing to a pink gooey thing. No andalite phase inbetween.
I <3 the Animorphs

I just had a AFF moment. My friends and I were talking about people who use others and I say:
"yeah it's like when someone only makes 5 posts then leaves and never comes back."
No one knew what I was talking about...

<Speaking of KASUs having to do with V3's morphs, how did V3 TOUCH that reptiel acid shooting thing in book #48 or the fire creature in #36?>

<Sorry I haven't posted more lately. Funny thing, a while back I thought to myself "the next time I get on I will make my 1000s post", I have got onto this site 4 times now sence then and I haven't done it yet.>
