Despair--please help!!

Post by andalitetoilet » Thu Oct 30, 2008 1:43 pm

So, I joined the forum to get the pdfs. I'm not going to lie. It isn't right of me, but it's what happened. I started talking and found I enjoyed it, but had to stop because I kept coming across little tiny things that would reveal what was coming in the series. I decided to take a hiatus as a result, to chat to my heart's content when I finished the series. But now, I come groveling back seeking your help.

I'm a librarian and work with all ages of children. One thirteen year old boy may have ruined my will to continue reading the series. I'm only at book 26, and if what he tells me is true, there is no way I will have the will to continue. So please, collective Animorphs fans, lie to me if what he tells me is true or speak the truth to me if it is false. I will pretend that you are doing both simultaneously and it will cancel it out and I will keep reading.
Spoiler:
He told me that Rachel dies in the last book. She is my favorite character. It may be true, and it may be pivotal to the plotline, but that is not what I care about right now. I just want to be told that she is alive, because I can't go on with so many books left, knowing Rachel and growing to care for her more and more if she's just going to die. Please tell me she's alive so I can continue reading. Again, I don't care if this is the truth or not.

Oh, don't worry about Rachel. She's just fine. Tobias, Ax, Jake, Marco, and Cassie as well. Along with a few other people you haven't met yet. The whole thing has a happy ending; why wouldn't it? What kind of sick pleasure might KAA get from killing one of the most loved characters?

Thank you! I don't even care if you were being sarcastic, that helped me get through. Now, I will be promptly ignoring everyone again for the next month or two to avoid another spoilery situation. Sorry. Animorph love. <3

Ignore the people in real life. Online, we'll simply use spoiler tags:

But yes, don't worry about Rachel. She's fit as a fiddle. I mean, why would Applegate kill off one of the best characters in the series? There's absolutely no logical reason for it. And besides, as Cap said, the whole thing has a very happy ending.
