. It was originally intended to focus on Aftran from
, but it ended up asking the question, "What would the Animorphs world be like if the Yeerk Peace Movement had played a more active role?" The results were shockingly different.
It is currently in early stages of production - the overarching plot is still in progress, and the only part of this fiction to actually be written is the prologue and the very beginning of a chapter. (Not chapter one, just a random chapter that fits into a fairly late stage into the overarching plot).
It was unfortunetely lost when the author's computer randomly decided to be stupid. However, the author is in the process of re-writting the lost work.
Mild spoilers may be unmakred.
Aftran returns to the pool right after the events of The Departure. Zhe begins the Peace Movement there, and starts recruiting members, including Illim, Verrator, and Altilow. Meanwhile, the Animorphs thwart David as in the books. This time, however, Verrator (in a human host) suggests to the Animorphs that they should begin to use the morphing cube on Movement members and humans who can help the fight. Recruitment for the Movement shoots up as yeerks realize that they can take advantage of the morphing cube's abilities. The majority of the Movement become nothlits in various animal morphs, although a significant number chose to remain yeerks, the four original members included. The Animorphs, meahwhile, recruit humans to their cause, which they not-at-all-ironically call the Auxiliary Animorphs. Even when Aftran gets put on a Long Bus Trip
that forces Illim to take over leadership, everything is looking up for peace in the relationship between yeerks and humans.
But not all is well. The Movement has no explanation for the disappearance of the thousands of yeerks that disappear when they become nothlits. This makes the Council of Thirteen suspicious. When a spy informs them of the Movement members who remain in the Pool, the Council jumps at the opportunity to kill them. In order to make it inconspicuous, the Emperor (who controls who mates with who) orders members of the Movement to procreate so that they can die
. Despite the cleverness of the plan, it doesn't take long for the Movement leaders to figure out what's going on. It is eventually revealed that the spy was Verrator
. Zhe was killed by the movement.
Altilow presents zhir body to Visser Three and says that it is the body of Illim, and that the rest of the Movement has defected back to the Empire.
Due to Altilow's role in the supposed destruction of the Peace Movement, zhe was promoted to Sub-Visser 339 and sent to the Anati homeworld. Zhir position of power makes it easy for zhir to begin a Movement there, and it grows even more quickly than the one on Earth. Unfortunately for Earth's Movement, however, Illim was given false information that Altilow was killed on the Anati homeworld. When four andalites ( who were voluntary controllers
) pick up the Animorphs from Earth and take them to the Anati homeworld, they were completely unaware of the movements existence. When the movement tried to appeal to them, only Cassie trusted them. In the end, however, the Animorphs found out that the andalites were controllers when they sent the humans into a trap in order to kill them. The controllers were killed
, and Earth's Movement became aware of Anati's Movement. From this incident on, however, voluntary andalite controllers were a constant threat to the Movement's safety.
Meanwhile, back on Earth, the Animorphs manage to trap Visser Three for three days, killing the yeerk and freeing Alloran. Alloran goes with the Animorphs to capture a yeerk bug fighter, which he takes into space to go back to the andalite homeworld. However, he was delayed severely when the Skirt Na abducted him.
Eventually, Anati's Movement becomes so large that it overtakes the remaining Empire presence on the Anati homeworld, and the few Empire members that are left were tortured or killed.
This causes a huge imbalance of power in the Yeerk Empire, as more and more yeerks flee to Earth. The Animorphs and Earth's Movement start to feel more and more resistance, and the Movement is in constant danger of being wiped out due to low membership. Most of the auxiliaries were killed or taken as controllers, along with Rachel and Marco
Alloran eventually escaped the Skirt Na and made it to his home planet. But when he told the andalites about the invasion of Earth, they decided to go in and shoot everything that moved, including the movement.
Alloran tried to convince them against this, but his efforts failed. In the end, he was forced to try to sabotage the departure of the andalite fleet, resulting in his execution.
But things were going much better on the Anati homeworld. Once the Movement was sure that they had the entire planet on their side, they went out into space to kill the Council of Thirteen. However, the andalite fleet intercepted them in space. The Movement put up a fight, but the andalites completely destroyed Anati's movement and left no survivors. The andalite fleet was headed to Earth. Empire radars had detected the fleet approaching ahead of time, but the andalites far outgunned the yeerk forces.
Because of this, Visser One (who had replaced Visser Three in leading Earth's invasion) decided to made a truce with the Peace Movement and the Animorphs only to destroy the andalites.
The ensuing battle was very bloody and it resulted in Jake's death
, but the Empire and the Movement won. At this point, however, the empire betrayed the movement and started infesting andalites rapidly. The Movement retaliated by doing the same, not caring if the andalites wanted to be controllers or not. Once there were no more andalites left to infest, the Movement took the remaining andalite ships and blasted into space to destroy the Council of Thirteen. The Empire followed. Once in space, the empire was disputed over whether to trust the Movement or not. One side, led by Visser One, wanted to continue to follow orders and protect the Council. The other side, led by Visser Five, thought the fight was hopeless and thought the Movement would be more lenient with them and even give them a position of power if they supported it in the destruction of the Council. It didn't matter, though, because the Movement rejected help from Visser Five and his troops. Meanwhile, the Movement developed an enormous bomb that would destroy the entire Council. The Empire reached the Council just seconds after the Movement infiltrated them. They set off the bomb, and it killed everybody on the ship, including the entire Movement, the Council of Thirteen, and most of the Vissers and Sub-Vissers.
