I lay there in suspended animation.
I felt myself floating.
The bear was melting. Old grizzly bear, my friend. Good old bear.
I demorphed. The snake was still in my mouth Motionless.
I demorphed.
I was Rachel again, the human Rachel, alive, unhurt. I could have bounded up and gone off to the mall to shop. But I didn’t kid myself. I didn’t hope.
I spit the snake out.
I was surrounded on all sides. I was only a weak human girl now. The polar bear loomed over me, his strength the equal of my own grizzly, but now I was just me, just Rachel.
I could see the viewscreen. I could see my best friend Cassie. Jake. Marco, funny Marco. Ax.
Tobias.
He had morphed. He was his human self once more. He’d done that for me. And because he was crying. I understood. Humans cry, hawks don’t.
“I love you,” I said to the screen.
And oh, god, how could so much regret and so much sweetness and so much sadness all be present in that single moment? I was already dead and missing my unlived life. I was already dead and Tobias was mourning.
I tried to smile. For him.
The polar bear said, “You fight well, human.”
Then he killed me with a single blow.

Animorphs #54, The Beginning

This makes me cry every single time.

Keep reading

the two of you and the two of me.

“Are you okay?” Cassie asked.

Okay? I wanted to cry. I was me again. For whatever that was worth. The coward was in me. The killer, too. Human and animal.

“Rachel, do you want to sit down? Maybe talk?” Cassie asked.

“I… I don’t know…” I said.

“I’m here for you,” Cassie said.

I looked up. Tobias. Half-human, half-predator. Our eyes met.

“Thanks, Cassie,” I whispered. “But … Tobias?”

<Yeah. Let’s go, Rachel,> he said. <The two of you and the two of me. Let’s go.>

- Animorphs #32: The Seperation

Yo yo! I another general question regarding what I should call the ships for this series. So far, I’m going to be officially using these tags to differentiate pairings in my tags:

  • otp: the hawk and the muse - for racheltobias
  • otp: the heart and the mind - for cassiejake
  • otp: the prince and the pauper - for marcojake
  • otp: a gentle touch - for rachelcassie
  • otp: the trust of the shorm - tobiasax

Sadly, that’s all I’ve got so far. Anyone got any clever cute things for these ships?

  • jakeax
  • racheljake
  • tobiasjake
  • rachelax
  • rachelmarco
  • cassieax
  • marcocassie
  • tobiascassie
  • tobiasmarco
  • marcoax

Also, they whole gang will be ot4: we are home.

What do you peeps think?

LMHO So my friend Heather is reading some book and she’s sobbing because some character named Rachel die and Luna and I are just like ASDFGHJKL WHY DOES RACHEL ALWAYS DIE????

Cos we’re thinking.

Then she went, “I’m not crying I just have a half-dead OTP in my eye” and we’re like I FEEL YOU! 

So we’re all ranting about what sounds like the same thing but isn’t.
