** The Yeerk-host combination is usually what is meant by a controller though everyone in the series has a bad habit of conflating the Yeerk and host. The Yeerk in Tom's head, for instance, was called Tom by literally everyone all the time.

* Why are Yeerk hosts referred to as "Controllers" when they're the ones who are ''being'' controlled?

**He also clears says "too weak to morph." He can morph, obviously.

** I actually disagree with the starting premise that "So we know that the stories are actually being written as books" purely because Rachel says "I've always wanted to write that". I narrate things/form sentences in my head to myself pretty frequently, and the thought "I've always wanted to write that" actually crosses my mind sometimes when my mind comes up with some cliche that I haven't actually used when writing before.
In other words, I think "I've always wanted" indicates a conversation (with the self), not a description of what has just been done.

done. Not sure if that makes sense.

** Look up the history of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_trials Nuremberg trials]], because it is the exact same circumstance. The courts, which had effectively no precedent, were established by the decree of the victors. Acts like TheHolocaust that didn't fit the definition of WarCrimes were lumped into a new category, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimes_against_humanity Crimes Against Humanity]]. I think that pretty well fits what the Yerks were guilty of.

** How can Animorphs feature the thing it basically inspired?

** It's Tobias who shows up in Jake's room and gets Jake to acquire Homer, Jake tells the others about it later, and in the first book, they go to the beach and Jake morphs Homer right in front of everyone. Cassie is the one who suggests the Green Anole morph for spying on Chapman. Cassie is the only one who absolutely must know that Jake has four, but she could be leaving out the fact that it's a tie when she narrates the second book, I guess?

** I deal with it by assuming that the populations of Ssstram and Mak were very small; keeping in mind that populations in the millions are the norm in this universe, and humans are interesting as hosts precisely because there are so many of them. I assume the Ssstram and Mak were small, probably technologically primitive populations that were picked off - maybe they were even class five lifeforms and weren't suitable for infesting, but were enslaved as labourers, Arn-style or just wiped out for the sake of it? There are references to civilizations having been destroyed by the Yeerks - even with the implicit retcon, it seems that there must be more of these than just the Hork-Bajir.
