in the anivengers stuff i also was thinking about having the animorphs (mostly Jake, ngl) joining/working w the avengers and at which age has the best story potential?
like, chonologically having Jake join them when he’s around 30 sets everything exactly where it is with no fudging of years, but also just think about fresh-from-the-war 17yo Jake who’s still recovering from severe depression and v high-strung paranoid and ptsd-surviving working w the Avengers and how they’d see him as two very different people: someone who is incredibly calm and smart under stress, but who falls apart as soon as the mission is over and always stages his room to look like he’s sleeping in bed but actually sleeps in wait near the door in case anyone is looking for him.
And then which mix? The Yeerk war was public? The Yeerk war was covered up? Did all the remaining animorphs join SHIELD? Do they all keep in touch or do they have to keep it under wraps? Does Marco rejoin the ‘living’ or do he and his parents live off the grid w the Hork-Bajir? Is he a famous movie star and do he and Tony know one another?
Cheers! Lets make a list of my family and friends. I care about them
Andrea Hughes- Let’s start this list off with the star. The light. The one, the only, Andrea is a 15 year-old freshman. She goes to the same school as me, and she is my girlfriend. We met through the musical, even though we knew each other in seventh grade (different story) She makes me so happy.
Nathan Q- Nathan is my main man. We have been friends since 5th grade, and I can tell him everything. He is a sophomore in high school, He also makes me look tan in the summer. If you are reading this, I really love you man, and I don’t tell you enough. Thanks.
Jake LaGonge(Not his real name) - Jakeyyy. Jake is runner up for best friend (that’s not Andrea) Jake is a tall, skinny, asian fellow, with a trashy aesthetic. Jake brings much goon fun to my life. Jake is a Junior and goes to the same High School as Nathan, Andrea, and I.
Maddie and Marisa- Maddie is my older sister. She is a senior in High school. Marisa is my twin. Both her, and Maddie go to high school with all Jake, Nathan, Andrea, and I.
Michael (Me)- Hello. This one is about me. I guess I care about myself. It’s a bit odd talking about yourself on the internet. I like drinking water, listening to music, and being fake. I actually don’t like being fake. It just happens. My three favorite bands of 2015 are Weezer, Foo Fighters, and Childish Gambino. I have a cool room, and enjoy playing my bass. That is all. Thanks for reading.
When I finally got to my high school, I saw my 3 best friends Josh, Jake, and Abby outside the school entrance talking to each other, they are probably waiting for me to show up.
Josh is the same age as me but much taller than me and stronger, he is the star quarterback for our football after all. He always wore black clothing, black socks, black shoes, black pants, you get the picture.
Jake is the brains of our group, give him any problem he will solve it in seconds.
Last but not least Abby the most beautifu- I mean the coolest girl I ever met, she’s the only girl I know who’s not afraid to get down and dirty with the boys.
My friends saw me walking towards them, they started waving at me and telling me to hurry up. “Hey you guys sorry I’m late for our little meet up before school starts my stupid brother forgot to wake me up, so how are you guys doing?
"Hey Anthony! We’re doing fine; we were just talking about the new trailer for the movie Zootopia that just came out today.” Josh told me
“Zootopia what is that?” I asked with a confused look on my face
All my gasped at the same time.
“What is Zootopia!? Have you been living under a rock for the last few months, it’s the movie that everybody is talking about on social media.” Abby explained to me.
I give a small chuckle. “Uh ok I don’t see what the big deal is, it sounds like it is just a movie.”
All of a sudden I turn to see Jake dramatically go on his knees and start crying. “You don’t get it do you, Zootopia isn’t just movie, it is a movie that we Disney fans have been waiting to see come out for a long time.”
I sweat drop. “You guys know you still haven’t told me what Zootopia actually is.”
They all turned and faced me as they gave out nervous laughs and scratched the back of their heads.
“Oh yeah.” Josh said embarrassingly.
“You know what guys how about we show him the trailer for the movie maybe that’ll make him understand the hype for Zootopia?” Abby suggested to them.
“That’s a great idea Abby. Here let’s use my phone.” Said Jake as he pulled his phone out of pocket and went on YouTube to pull the video up so we can watch it.
“Ok I got the video ready for you to watch Anthony, prepare to be amazed.” Jake told me as he handed me the phone.
I rolled my eyes as I pressed play on the screen to start the trailer.
Zootopia, a gleaming city where animals of all breeds predator and prey alike live together in peace and harmony. Hi! I’m Judy, your new neighbor! Yeah, well, we’re loud. Don’t expect us to apologize for it. ZPD’s first rabbit officer, Judy Hopps! Ready to make the world a better place? Bad news, in this city gripped by fear… What can you tell us about the animals that went savage? Are we safe? This is priority one. Hopps, parking duty. Sir, I’m not just some token bunny. You strike out, you resign. Deal. Hello! I’m here to ask you some questions about a case! Then they should’ve gotten a real cop to solve it. You are under arrest! For what? Hwurting your fweelings? You are a key witness. No, he is. Hey! I need you to run a plate. Alright, I know a guy. You need something done, he’s on it. They’re all sloths? We are in a really big hurry. I am on… It? … break. I have 36 hours left. We can only solve it together. It’s not about how badly you want something. It’s about what you are capable of! I am a real cop. Never let ‘em see that they get to you. You bunnies, so emotional. Do not let go! I’m gonna let go! What? We may be evolved, but deep down we are still animals. Quit it, you’re gonna start a howl! No, you are naked! For sure, we’re a naturalist club. All the way down. Life’s a little bit messy. We all make mistakes. No matter what type of animal you are, change starts with you. We gotta go. Who’s car is it? The most feared crime boss, Mr. Big! Is that Mr. Big? Stop talking, stop talking! Ice 'em. Daddy! What did we say? No icing anyone at my wedding! I have to, baby, Daddy has to.
After the trailer was over I looked up to see my friends anxiously looking at me waiting to see what my response is going to be.

College is fun and all but I fucking miss all the stuff I did in high school with my friends. I rly downgraded socially and I miss jake so much it feels like I don’t really have a best friend here even though I’m constantly surrounded by some of the best people I know
don’t get me wrong I love Lauren and Jackson and James and jerome and will and max and Maria and julienne ND quin and madi etc but none of them really have the rapport that jake and i did and sure some of this may have come with age but i distinctly remember immediately connecting with jake from the first time i met him and nothing even remotely similar has occurred since. I know no matter what jake always has my back even during that weird period of time when we weren’t speaking to each other for whatever reason
tldr everyone is really cool but nothing compares to me and jake
