Welcome! In the spirit of other drabble communities, such as tww100 and hp100, animorphs100 is a challenge community devoted to drabbles. ka_verse is another drabble community for all books written by K.A. Applegate, including Animorphs and Everworld.
What is a drabble?
Depending on whom you're asking, a drabble is a short piece of writing, 100-1000 words. For our purposes, we're using 100 words.
Whoa! Animorphs! I remember reading one of those books, but I sort of lost interest. Can you tell me more about them?
Animorphs was a YA science fiction series, authored by K.A. Applegate. (and a team of ghostwriters, which has become a point of some contention in the fandom! ;)) It ran for about 70 books, 54 in the normal series, plus a host of auxiliary books. The series was published from 1996-2001, and the fandom still remains fairly strong. If you want more information, please go to animorphs.
So how does this community work?
Every Tuesday Sporadically (please comment on any challenge entry if you think you can help keep the community going on a more regular basis), I (katraven) will post a challenge, a topic to build your drabble around. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to write 100 word drabbles-as many as you want-about that topic.
Are there any rules?
Oh, sweet child. There are always rules:
Be polite. Criticism is encouraged. Comments are encouraged. Encouragement is encouraged. Rudeness is not. I'm not trying to sound like a schoolteacher here, but I expect all of you are mature enough to know the difference.
Use lj-cuts if you're posting many drabbles at once. "Many" = more than 3. Lj-cuts = (without the spaces)
Spoilers are allowed... ...for the time being. I'm afraid that I don't know much about how publishing is going outside of the U.S. If you're living in a place where not all of the books are available, drop a comment telling me how many have come out so far, and I'll be happy to adjust the spoiler policy.
