Animorphs Re-Read: Megamorphs #1 The Andalite's Gift (Chapters 37-40)

Chapter 37
This chapter is narrated by Marco.

March 2017 Release (Jash's Dragon Army)

Dragon Cave recently released two new breeds. One breed has different color variations and each color variation has dimorphism. I was able to get one of each breed but not enough to cover every variation.

A Quickie: Why Daenerys Won't Marry Jon for Romance (Game of Thrones)

Game of Thrones is a show lacking in child friendly content. The lands of Westeros and Essos are filled with less than pleasant things. Incest is one of the things that is commonplace. There is the relationship with the twins Jaime and Cersei Lannister which has produced three offspring. One insane little boy, one easily manipulated boy, and one sweet girl. House Targaryen is infamous for incest as the House liked keeping their blood clean.

So when the argument of 'eeew but incest' is used against the pairing of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, I just have to roll my eyes. I am not totally in favor of this ship and even if I was I would be more than ready to accept arguments against. It's just saying 'eeew but incest' as your sole argument without adding anything else is not a good point. Now if you want to add why a character or two would be against incest that's another thing entirely in my mind.

In this post I'll point out why a romantic relationship between Jon and Daenerys isn't likely to happen.

Crossing the Divide 48

"Dragon blood is magic." I told them. "Dragons themselves are pure magic."

"Will you be using Viserion against Viserys?" Selmy asked disbelieving.

"Rin's blood can burn a person alive if injected directly into their bloodstream." Daenerys said. "But how will you get close enough to my brother to do that? How will you survive?"

"I'm not going to survive, Daenerys." I replied.

"No, you're not going to die." Jorah replied angrily. "You're not going on a suicide mission. Khaleesi brings up a good point, you won't be able to get close enough to Viserys. You will die for nothing."

I wanted to remind Jorah that my time in this reality was never going to last. I had duties as the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. My time spent here was merely me running away from what I should be doing. I didn't want to go back to a world with Daenerys as an enemy. I wanted to stay here where I could wake up every morning knowing my queen had not gone mad. But that was only the wishful thinking of a pup.

"I hope my previous conversation with Viserys will make him think I would betray Daenerys." I told them sadly. "Besides, he will like to gloat over me. Maybe even in me."

"You're willing to give your body up just because of a chance?" Jorah asked, raising his eyebrow.

Daenerys looked shocked that I would even suggest this. Selmy looked nearly as angry as my husband on this matter. The thought that I, the last of House Kaari, would think of doing this was unthinkable. Even to my own ears it sounded horrible. But it might be the only chance of destroying Viserys for good.

"Are you sure that's the only way?" Daenerys asked.

"It might be." I replied and then turned to Jorah.

Crossing the Divide 47

"The m-virus." I sad breathlessly. "Can you show me how it works?"

"I would be glad to." Sam said.

For the next hour every question I asked was answered. I took in every minute detail that he gave me. Everything would be important for the Mormonts. Khaleesi would not have understood everything Sam was showing me. She would have been able to understand a good amount but not as much as myself. K-Mart had a good memory. However, she might not have been able to tell which details would have been worth remembering.

"Where do you hold them?" I asked Sam.

"You can't see them like the workers." He said sternly and I could tell there was fear in his voice. "They have to be held differently as they're more volatile. I've found that holding them like other clones makes them change before I want them to. Sometimes they would change inside their cells and other times they would change right when they exited this facility. If you went in there it wouldn't be safe."

I had hoped that Sam would just allow me into where the Raqus Strain clones were being held. I hoped that by being near one in a human state I could get information to help with detecting them. The only problem would be putting how to detect them in human terms.

"I'll just be in there for a minute or two at most." I said. "You can have two guards with me in case anything goes wrong."

"Two guards and you will only be in there for a minute." Sam stated. "You will also wear a hazmat suit in case you come in contact with blood."

I will be posting some of what I consider important stuff I have blogged about and an update on an important project.

I will post these every now and again. I'm keeping the name 'Weekly Update' as I've grown fond of it.

With Fire and Blood Giveaway (Jash's Dragon Army)

Update: This giveaway is over. I want to thank everyone who participated here. If you can't wait until next giveaway you can go to the Dragon Cave Forums where people will trade and give away eggs. I am also more than willing to breed upon request.

If you would like to learn more about my dragon army you can go HERE. It is constantly evolving and I would love your input on how it is progressing so far.

While the giveaway is over, feel free to discuss Game of Thrones. I would love to hear your theories about the upcoming season. If you blog about Game of Thrones go HERE to find out how to advertise on my blog.

Oh, if you want to buy Game of Thrones items, merely buy them via the ad on the bottom of this post. Catch up on the show, start reading the books, or buy Funko Pops of your favorite characters.

Season 7 of Game of Thrones will start airing on July 16, 2017. Finally I won't have to wait any longer to see what happens next. While I do hope Daenerys Targaryen is able to successfully conquer Westeros, I would also love to see her turn mad.

I hope to see Arya Stark and Nymeria finally meet up again. There have been leaks that show it will probably happen. I also hope to see Arya and Jon Snow reunite.

I hope that Sansa Stark doesn't trust Littlefinger. And if it seems like she is that that she's pretending while being well aware of what he's capable of.

I also hope that Ser Jorah Mormont is able to cure his grey scale and make sweet sweet love to Daenerys.

Whether or not my hopes will come true or not I don't know. Game of Thrones has the annoying habit of teasing you with hope and then taking it away.

Figuring my blog readers should get something that I can actually give away.

If you don't already have a Dragon Cave account, you can sign up for one if raising dragons interests you. If you already have an account, pick an egg at will. If you don't have an account and don't want one, please share this with a friend that does.

Here are the eggs this time around:

Adopt one today!
Name: Wormgood

Breed: Magi Dragon

Clan: Hounds of the Wastelands

Position: Healer Hound

A Quickie: Aida's Morality (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)

I always seem to eventually come back to talking about robots and AIs. I guess it's just because I find them so fascinating. I am a Terminator fan so trying to decipher how those robots think is a good past time of mine.

With Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s latest season the topic of robots has come to the forefront of my mind. This part of the season revolves around LMDs (aka Life Model Decoys) which I knew would eventually start to kill humans.

As the 'leader' of the LMDs, Aida has proven to be a very interesting character. So is she good? Evil? How can you tell with a robot anyways?

Crossing the Divide 46

"We will avenge our children." Jorah promised me and put his hand on my shoulder. "For that we need to focus, Rin. If we don't we will join our children. We will join our children while their killer still lives."

I could only nod and reached out with my blood sense. I could hear the roaring of a dragon with three heads. Daenerys was still alive and I would keep her that way. If I let her die, though, there would be no chance that she would go mad. I pushed that thought out of my mind even as it yearned to linger. I wanted to fight with no consequences. I just wanted to kill.

"I can sense that Daenerys is alive." I told my husband. "I can smell Targaryen blood thick in the air. I only smell one Targaryen. Whatever magic Viserys is using doesn't allow me to sense his blood here."

"Then we have to get to her." Jorah said. "Now."

"The whole camp is under attack. We can't think just about our queen, we have to think of everyone. Right now I can't think clear enough to take everyone to safety."

"And you're the most powerful fighter Khaleesi has now."

Azor Ahai's face twisted in anger and pain. He needed to make sure the Targaryen was safe but knew what I said was true. He had even added to the argument of why he should lead the Dothraki to safety. He didn't like it but he knew it was true. It also meant he trusted me with Daenerys' life. I would make sure she lived tonight if only for him.

A Quickie: The Lord of Light's True Goal (Game of Thrones)

R'hllor has the titles of Lord of Light, the Heart of Fire, the God of Flame and Shadow, and the red god. He is most commonly worshiped in Essos with a few followers in Westeros. It is not easily seen if he is good or evil. If he deserves to be followed or not.

In this little post I'll take a look at trying to figure out if people should worship the Lord of Light or go against him.

"I love you, Rin," Sam said, running his fingers through my hair. "You're the only thing here that feels real."

I was the only thing here that wasn't a clone and wasn't part of the macabre design. Everything else but me was here to serve the Umbrella Corporation. Sam, once he found out he was a clone, wouldn't think of himself as real. He was just a replaceable part of the cloning facility. Wesker did need Alex's mind but didn't need to hunt for the man.

"Maybe I am." I replied. "Maybe everything here is an illusion."

"Would you want me to be an illusion?" Sam asked with amusement.

"No."

Sam was not an illusion even if he was a clone. He was as real as anyone I had ever met including Gandalf. The part of the mission I was not looking forward to was having to leave Sam if he would not join the Mormonts. I also didn't like to imagine Alex not reacting well to Sam. There would be tension but I knew Alex would try for my sake. He was more scared of losing me than making himself happy.

"I wish this could last forever." Sam said regretfully. "But one day Wesker will find out and we'll have to make hard decisions."

"But you won't desert me?" I asked.

"No, of course not. But what we have won't be...blissful. It'll be hard. You said before that you were worried that I would abandon you. I question if you will stay by my side."

"Alex, my whole life has been nothing but pain. One test after another. One hard decision followed by something even more painful. When I find a cause I believe in I fight. I don't back down."

"If you think so low of me, why stay?"

"Because I love you, Alex."

Into the Darkness 7

Below me was a herd of creatures that were deer-like. Their skin was a deep blue and they had no tail. They ran across the land with talons on their hind legs and hooves on their front. From my vantage point in the sky I could see two small hands sticking out of their chests.

New Batch of Dragons (Jash's Dragon Army)

On Dragon Cave I'm getting a little more serious about breeding more dragons so that there will be more options for future giveaways. So if I'm trying to breed one type of dragon I'll have more chances of actually successfully getting the type I'm aiming for.

If you want me to personally breed a pair for you when not doing a giveaway, comment below.

Here are the new dragons this time around:

Dragonstone the Dreamer (Jash's Dragon Army)

Adopt one today!
This dragon has been named: Dragonstone the Dreamer by me as no one else suggested a name. I named him Dragonstone as it references both Dragonstone the location and Daenys the Dreamer. Some years before the Doom of Valyria, Daenys Targaryen had a vision that warned her of that event. So House Targaryen moved to Dragonstone in Westeros. That's why the Targaryens were the only dragonlord House to survive the Doom with dragons.

The bio I have planned for him is:

A Quickie: Dolores and Maeve in Season 2 (Westworld)

The first season of Westworld was full of twists and turns. It lead you down one path only to throw the rug out from under you. It was extremely exciting and thought provoking so I am eagerly awaiting Season 2. In the mean time I can only go over the first season and theorize on what happens next. This is hard to do as the HBO show makes it difficult to guess what comes next.

What happens between Dolores and Maeve next season really interests me. Will they be allies or enemies when we meet with them again?

"Did you find what you needed, Rin?" Daenerys asked.

"I did and I also discovered who did the spell." I told her. "I am glad you decided to allow Jorah to stay."

"For now. Until the threat is resolved I know I can trust him to keep me safe. The Rasiki did a good job with guarding but they left shortly before you arrived."

"To guard a Targaryen is an insult that they were willing to do since I asked. I contacted them before I arrived hence their leaving. I wasn't going to make them stay if they didn't want to."

My queen didn't look happy at that. She wanted the Rasiki at her beck and call. They followed me and she wanted to use that. I didn't blame her for wanting that power. She, Jorah, and myself had all been effected by a spell. None of us knew the exacts of the spell, at least I assumed so, and that meant we didn't know how best to protect ourselves. It was a very scary thing to be under attack by an enemy we didn't understand.

"Will they be back?" Daenerys asked.

"If I ask them to they will." I told her. "But I won't call them unless I need them."

"I understand. You know how Ser Jorah Mormont betrayed me. You've seen the memories of how he conspired with the man who helped kill my family. How could you go away so calmly after learning that? Or did you make up any excuse to flee?"

February 2017 Release (Jash's Dragon Army)

Dragon Cave recently released a new female only dragon breed for Valentine's Day. For those lucky enough not to know the drama: there was a last minute change to the new breed. HERE is what happened.

I'm reviewing the final version of this dragon breed and not the previous one.

Crossing the Divide 43

"She should be staying away from the facility." I reassured Alex. "Even if she does get too close, she shouldn't be able to cause too much damage."

"It's never wise to underestimate her." My husband reprimanded me.

He was right. I should have been the one to remind him how dangerous Alice could be. But I was too anxious as we made our way to the rooftop. These would be the last few minutes before the mission truly began. First there was the helicopter that would take me to the outskirts of an Umbrella base. Then I would pretend to be part of Umbrella. Finally the real work would begin once I made an excuse to go to the cloning facility. All signs pointed towards a shipment needing to go to where I needed to be. I would figure out how to stay in the facility once I got there. Since this mission was one of infiltration I wouldn't be bringing Jorah as the weapon was extremely recognizable. If someone thought I just looked like Rin there would be no confirmation that it was me. At least by sight. But if someone thought I looked like Rin and had her signature weapon, I would be caught and reported. Then the mission would have to be started over.

"I'll trust you and the rest of the council to keep me safe." I told him.

"I will keep you safe if I can." Alex said. "But the rest of the council will be too dimwitted to see what I do."

Subeta HAs: Rin at King's Landing

For awhile I have been wondering what posts I could do about Subeta. I have series I do for Flight Rising and Dragon Cave, so I had to do something for the site I've been on the longest. I just had to. It finally dawned on me that I could do something dealing with Human Avatars (HAs) as that's the part of Subeta that I just adore. My current username on the site is RinKaari.

In this series I will make HAs based on my original characters, characters from movies, items, ect. If you want to suggest a future HA challenge just comment and I'll see what I can do.

Today is one variation of my Original Character (OC) Rin from my Game of Thrones/Resident Evil fanfiction the Rin Duology. Throughout the fic she goes between the Game of Thrones tv universe and the Resident Evil movie universe. I've been trying for a long time to get her done right as a HA. Besides the HA I'm about to show you, I've tried two other times to find something I'm happy with. This one isn't perfect even for the scenario, but I'm pleased with it.

The version of Rin I'm covering today is during her time in King's Landing. For those not familiar with Game of Thrones, it's basically where the center of the Seven Kingdom's government is. Anyways...Rin was captured by Jaime Lannister and the kingsguard when she gave birth to her son Jeor Kaari, named after her husband's father. Upon arriving in the city she was tortured by then Queen Cersei Lannister and only stayed because Jaime held something over her. The something was Jeor's identity being kept secret and her ancestral sword being kept safe. Later she was able to get her freedom by defeating the Undead Mountain and effectively overthrowing Cersei. As she overthrew the old queen she was readily accepted by the people of King's Landing as the new Queen.

Rin was heavily scarred because of her torture and so she wears revealing clothing to reassure herself that she's still desirable.

There is a lot more that happened but I didn't want to waste too much of your time. So I only gave as much information as was needed to give the HA some context.

A Quickie: Initial Thoughts on a Graphic Novel (Animorphs)

Original Tweet found HERE
First I want to thank Hirac Delest for posting this image. Before I saw them post this tweet one of the Animorphs groups I'm in mentioned the news. I didn't want to hope another adaptation was underway. If I hoped there was an adaptation and none came into being I would be more than disappointed.

But since Applegate's twitter confirmed a graphic novel, I felt the need to get my initial thoughts out.

Just a warning that I didn't do research into this and these are merely my initial reactions. If more information comes out I might post about it. If I don't do so on my blog I might do so on my Twitter and/or Facebook.

Crossing the Divide 42

"Jorah betrayed me from the first." Daenerys said as I started to exit her tent.

"He did." I told her as I stopped to look back at her. "He has also been by your side more loyally than anyone else. He might not have come to you with the purest of intentions, but that has changed."

"I can't forgive him for this. I won't."

"Jorah has my confidence and not just because I bore him two children. Whatever your decision ends up being, keep my children safe."

I looked at her face and behind her anger I saw hurt. It was the hurt that was making her flee into anger. It was hurt that would make her push him away just to make herself feel better. I hoped that Jorah having my confidence would keep her calm until my return. If she did make my husband leave her service she would die. I knew he would never forgive me for that but I had to think of the Seven Kingdoms above all else. Jorah's love had to come second to that.

"You wish to marry Khaleesi?"

The love Hail had for Khaleesi wasn't surprising to me. When I had first met Jorah I had fallen for him. I had opened up to him in a way I hadn't before to anyone else. Instantly I knew that we would be together for life. Instantly I knew no barrier could ever separate us for long. So I could understand Hail's feelings for my eldest daughter.

"Yes, I do." Hail replied. "She's the only reason I'm deciding to stay with you."

"Your decision to marry is very sudden." I told her.

"It's the f****** end of the world. Should it really matter to follow traditions? Any of us could die at any moment. I don't want to die without being her wife."

"In someone else's case I wouldn't mind. In your case I'm worried that you can't separate yourself from your blood. We are the choices we make and one day you might find yourself foreign to Rain. You might share different values or like different foods. At that time your love for my daughter might go away. You might find that your love for her isn't your own. You are your own person, Hail. You're not Rain except by superficial means."

There was confusion mixed with sadness in her eyes. The lesson of what a clone was had taken me awhile to learn. I had killed many Alice clones while convincing myself they weren't real. They were no more meaningful than cattle. No, they didn't have even the worth of cattle. But I had learned to accept them as their own kind. Even though a clone was the same genetically, they still had the ability to react differently from each other. Khaleesi was a loyal friend of mine while Alice was an enemy.

What Animorphs Alien are You? (Quiz)

The Animorphs series includes a wide range of aliens. Some more prominent in the series than others. Each alien has its own unique history and set of abilities. While the series started off with a clear black and white dynamic, by the end the only color is grey. Simply meaning there is no real good alien and bad alien species. Everything gets really complicated. Because of time I won't be able to do the full range of species for this quiz, but I will be able to get to the more prominent aliens. Find out if you have the world conquering abilities that the Yeerks possess. Maybe you are arrogant like the Andalites. Maybe you're just really hungry like the Taxxons. Or maybe you're another alien.
