Thanks! I fully intend to keep it up (although the series is on hiatus at the moment. Hopefully, I'll be able to resume it by the time you're all caught up.

Yeah; Neopedia can be a bit of a hazard for new fans. However, the forum attached to the wiki is perfectly safe. I think...

And Ellimist? Fawesome userbar. KOL4EVR

Thanks. I was tinkering with ImageReady when I suddenly found out I could create frames, and thus create animated images. This was the first thing I tried. It took 30 minutes, because the fading part was not coming right. I finally created duplicate frames with less opacity, and gave them a stay-time of 0.1 second. That was so easy, yet took so much time to find out.

Now, back to the topic : Neomorphs rocks!

when he says the like does he mean like so on and so forth or is there some hidden species called the like
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...

The original intent was "so on and so forth" (such as the Pythagi, Ssri'Kai, etc), though now I kinda want to make the Like... Good question!

I just read this (the PDF version), and here are my criticisms (of course I was somewhat impressed by it or I wouldn't have finished reading it):

1. WHY does Tobias have something against the French? There is nothing in any of the canon books to suggest this, and while I realize that his character has changed in the three years since the war, his anti-French-ness seems absolutely absurd. Given the fact that he spent years in a war, not between countries, but between species; and considering the fact that he was one of the first who thought it might be a good idea to give yeerks the ability to morph as a step toward peace; and especially given the fact that Tobias has never really belonged anywhere, and certainly never in his life had a taste of the "American Dream", it seems pretty impossible that he would ever devolve into a petty nationalist.

2. After Jake sent Rachel on that suicide mission in #53/54, Tobias would not say that Jake was close to being a "sensitive guy."

3. There are a lot of typos. In every chapter, almost every page. Mostly, there are a lot of periods missing, a few spots where "noting" is used instead of "nothing"...and, the really glaring one, on page 123, Tobias says, "I'll EVER run from the Yeerks. Never." I also recall something about Jake and Marco opening their moths, and Gardens employees going into animal habitats in order to fee the animals.

4. Why would Tobias leave us with some words of wisdom from Streetlight Manifesto? In #54, it is evident that 3 years after the war, Tobias does not care for music.

While I can't answer your other three observations, I can answer the fourth one.

I don't believe it's meant to be from Tobias. It's just something that capnnerefir does. He always ends his fanfics in his continuation of the series with a song from Streetlight Manifesto.
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.
