Maximum Ride was kinda my first fandom ever, around 7th grade? I only drew dogs and aliens since I was little so this was probably one my first attempts at a mostly human person. My 12 year old self would cry if they found out i could do stuff like this now, DONT LET YOUR DREAMS BE DREAMS
When you pick up the first book in a series you read years ago to reread it is the weirdest and best thing.
You can feel yourself being sucked back into something that never went away, but feels new and nostalgic at the same time.
You find the hidden gems and watch the characters fumble and deny and develop while knowing what’s to come
James Patterson:I worked so hard on the whole Maximum Ride series. This talk of plot holes and ghost writers is nonsense. I love the whole Flock! Maximum Ride, -looks at smudged writing on hand- Fnick, -squints harder- Igloo, -tilts head to side- Narwhal, -leans in closer- Gamecube, -stares at black smudge and sweats- and... Carrie.
Max Who wins: Max. Honestly, Max is ready to pick a fight with anyone because she thinks everyone is after her. She’s paranoid like that. If you choose to fight her, though, she won’t stop until either you’re dead or she’s unconscious. You should still fight her. Maybe this time it’ll knock some sense into her.
Fang Who wins: Fang. If you got into a fight with Fang, you probably deserved it. It was probably because you insulted one of the flock members or you were being a jerk in general. Don’t fight Fang. he fights dirty.
Iggy Who wins: Iggy. I MEAN COME ON THE DUDE IS BLIND AND HE CAN STILL TAKE DOWN FULL GROWN MUTANT DOG MEN EASILY. If that doesn’t work, there’s a 99% chance he’s got an explosive on him somewhere. Why would you pick a fight with him, anyway?
Nudge Who wins: No one. Why would you want to hurt this precious child? What has she ever done to you?
Gazzy Who wins: Gazzy. Like Iggy, this child is eight and he can take down mutants like it’s nothing. When all else fails, he’ll pull a Naruto on you and fart in your face. Do not fight Gazzy.
Angel Who wins: Angel, but only physically. FIGHT HER FIHT THE CHILD PUNCH HER IN THE FACE DO IT LORD KNOWS SHES GOT IT FUCKING COMING JUST KNOW THAT AS SOON AS YOU DO THE REST OF THE FLOCK WILL GANG UP ON YOU BUT IT WILL BE SO WORTH IT
Total Who wins: You. Fight the dog. Please. Kick the dog into outer space. LETS SEE YOU MAKE FUNNY QUIPS NOW, KIBBLE BREATH.
Ari Who wins: Ari Why are you fighting Ari? Hasn’t he been through enough? Shame on you, you deserve to lose this fight.
Maya Who wins: Maya. Go on. Call her Max. I dare you.
Jeb Batchelder Who wins: You. D E S T R O Y H I M
Dylan Who wins: You. Knowing him, he’d probably let you win. Fight him to feel better about yourself. Max will cheer you on, probably.
