Or: What Animorphs got right that Harry Potter got wrong.
Obvious massive spoilers ahead:
So I flashed through the last three books in the series, and I have to say, even knowing what was coming, having read this series back as a teen, I really wasn’t prepared. It’s one thing to read this series as some middle/high schooler over the years the series was released. Obviously I was part of that demographic. But to read it now as an adult all the way through in the course of about six and a half months, to get all of the subtleties, to be able to appreciate the messages this series gives. This ending hit me hard.
Because the Earth was saved. The war was ended. Humanity lives. But these six kids, the Animorphs, don’t get happy endings. There is no coming back from this war for them. But it’s not like this heartbreak wasn’t earned as a series. Everything that has happened throughout these books, all of the decisions these kids were forced to make, if K.A. Applegate had given everyone a happy ending, I would honestly have felt cheated, because it’s anathema to the anti-war message this series has crafted.
Rachel died. Rachel was a warrior, the only one of the Animorphs who seemed to get enjoyment out of the war. She wasn’t a sociopath, there was just something in her that would have made it impossible for her to go on even if she had survived. So she gets to the die the hero. She willfully goes with Jake’s plan, even tho she’s scared, even tho she doesn’t want to die. But she does, and once again does the dirty deed Jake has asked her to do: she kills Jake’s brother, her cousin, Tom. This is why her character only makes sense if you accept the fact that she probably killed David back in The Return. Since that point, she has had no qualms about killing. She murdered that Yeerk that only wanted to escape to be a nothlit. She was willing to run down that innocent military officer with a truck. Rachel was not the type of person would could have survived this war and had any semblance of a healthy life. But even in her death, she was still scared: was her life worth it, she asked; did she matter?
Rachel’s death pretty much strikes out the last remnants of Tobias’s lingering humanity. It’s not that it gives him manpain; he doesn’t grow from this, but is utterly wrecked. But it’s not just that Rachel died; it’s that Jake sent her to her death. Jake betrayed the illusion that the Animorphs was a family, the only real family Tobias had ever known. So Rachel’s death basically destroys him so much he leaves behind the actual remaining family he has: he abandons his mother Loren and his uncle Ax to live his life as a hawk. He has the option of becoming a human nothlit, but he doesn’t. Tobias has given up on his humanity and humans in general.
Ax goes back to the Andalites and gets the military rank of Prince, gets to become an even bigger hero than his brother Elfangor. It’s everything he ever could have wanted or strived for. He’s widely respected and admired. But when the Andalites begin to dismantle their military government and go back to civilian mode, Ax finds he cannot make the shift back into normal life. He cannot go back to his family and just make a home for himself. Whether he has become addicted to war as Rachel has is unclear, but it is clear that war has so become a part of himself that he cannot let it go. He chases down the last remaining Yeerk force for years because he cannot move on.
Marco at first seems to have been the one who got through it all okay. He soaks up the attention and celebrity that comes with being a war hero. He goes on talk shows, signs books and movie deals. He exploits his time in the war for money so he can be a millionaire. He surrounds himself with beautiful women. He buys multiples homes, this kid who started out the series in the slums. But it becomes apparent that this is a façade. Look at how he reacts to something so minor as dropping his keys in the pool. He morphs lobster. Marco has immersed himself into stardom and surrounded himself with stuff because something in him is broken beyond repair. The fame isn’t enough to fill it. It’s hollow and empty.
Cassie probably comes the closest of successfully moving on. She keeps morphing, learning about her beloved animals. She helps the free Hork-Bajir. And it’s obvious she has had to do a lot of soul-searching to make peace with what she has done in the war. She tells herself, tells Jake and the others over and over that they did what they had to do, that as the victims they had the right to do what they did to their oppressors. Even with that assurance, tho, it seems to not be something she even fully believes. See her reaction when Jake admits he did what he did not because he was a victim, but because he plainly just wanted the enemy to suffer. And this creates a rift between her and Jake. They don’t get to be the happy couple. She moves on to someone else. And that’s portrayed as okay, while heartbreaking.
And then there is Jake. Jake, who was simply unable to recover from having his family taken as controllers, who was ultimately unable to have the weight of leadership on his shoulders without it consuming him. Jake, who ordered the bombing of the Yeerk pool. Jake, who manipulated and treated his ally Erek King as property. Jake, who ordered the death of his brother and sent his cousin to her death. Jake, who threw the auxiliary Animorphs, a group of disabled kids, into the front lines as cannon fodder resulting in every single one of their deaths. Jake, who committed genocide against seventeen thousand helpless Yeerks out of revenge. Jake, who has become numb to the world because of his actions. Jake, who cannot even get enjoyment out Visser Three’s court martial because he realizes that he, too, is a war criminal. Jake, who knows that just as Alloran will forever be known as the Butcher of the Hork-Bajir, he can not escape his actions. Jake the Yeerk Killer.
Which leads us to the infamous cliff-hanger ending. But let’s be real, there is no cliff hanger. After Ax is captured by a new enemy only known as The One, Jake gets Tobias and Marco back together for a rescue mission. And you think this might play out as the typical trope, war heroes getting together for one last mission, for one last hurrah to end on a high note. But while I don’t doubt Jake genuinely wants to save Ax, it’s obvious the real reason he’s going: he wants so badly to make right what he did wrong. He thinks this is his chance for redemption, to not fall back into the traps of war that made him go against everything the Animorphs thought they believed in.
But in the end? It’s 99% percent likely Ax was already dead, absorbed into The One. Jake rams their ship into the Blade ship. There’s just no way he, Marco, and Tobias survived that. The reader must accept that there was no last hurrah. All of the young heroes, sans Cassie, are dead. Jake, in his desperation to right his wrongs, kills his friends and himself.
And that feels incredibly empty. It’s harsh and unforgiving. But as I said above, it was earned. If the Animorphs had just moved on and lived happy uncomplicated lives, how disrespectful would that ending have been? Compare this ending to the Harry Potter series. Rowling may not have had qualms killing secondary characters in the final book, but her faves the Golden Trio and their love interests were never in danger. Harry, Hermione, and Ron emerge from the war largely intact. They get to marry out of high school with the person they were set up with from the beginning. Rowling was not committed to her message. The war doesn’t seem to have any lasting affect on the heroes. The good guys beat the bad guys. They pop out kids and get their happy endings. There’s no lasting damage. Which, if you aren’t willing to see through your message to its end, why bother?
Tldr; So I’m planning to make a few more paintings once my hand has healed and make prints! I want to ask around (especially to anyone who lives in the Philippines) if you guys know any good art printing places because I do not know shit how this works. Or maybe you know how to do this instead because some experienced help would be nice but I’m open for suggestions! (someone educate me about papers and printing styles because what is this)
I’m going to try and make it not expensive but still decent quality and stuff so if you guys have any ideas, feel free to reply or DM me.
Also! Commissions? I might do start those as well if i get the courage to.
omg what if bellamy writes clarke a letter because he can't handle all the things he never got to tell her because he thought they had enough time and then he figures out she's alive and decides to give it to her or maybe she finds it😭😭
STOP what if Clarke drew all of her friends so 1) Madi would have faces to put to the names of the characters in all of Clarke’s stories about her friends from the sky and 2) so she wouldn’t forget what they look like
And then sometime after Space Squad has come down and she’s with Bellamy flipping through the pages of her journal they come across these portraits, but what shocks him is the way she lingers on those of his face, the fond look that he never noticed before. Did she always look at her pictures like that? Did she always look at him like that and perhaps he wasn’t paying attention hard enough? Did something change?
