I want an Animorphs AU in the style of Invader Zim.
By which I mean an Animorphs AU where everybody is batshit stupid.
Like, our establishing moment for Tom is when he comes in like, “GREETINGS, EARTH-BROTHER! I have quit the basketball team, but it’s fine because The Sharing fills my human organs with far more joy. I’M NORMAL!”
(”Jake, I think that your brother may be a Controller.” “Gee, Marco, what was your first clue?”)
And the Animorphs don’t even try to hide their identities; when someone comes into class loudly proclaiming how The Sharing has made their pitiful human lives worth living, they’ll just stand up and be like, “Everybody, Bob is obviously an alien! Listen to what he’s saying!” And the rest of the class just rolls their eyes, not caring.
(This works both ways, though: whenever somebody stares at Ax in public, he can just put down the pencil that he was eating, fold his hands in front of him and say “I’m normal. Mull.” They’ll immediately lose interest.)
For some reason the Yeerks just never think of attacking the Animorphs at home, aside from lots of shouting matches and attempted gaslighting between Tom and Jake. (Tom barricades Jake’s bedroom door from the outside whenever he goes off to do an evil plan, apparently not realizing that Jake can just fly out of the window.)
And Visser One is Tak. Whenever she shows up, she and Visser Three just scream at each other. It’s great.
