Oh! Mail!

Hello, Iximaz. I am composing the answers to your questions for both of us. Nume does not admit to wanting to have anything to do with this exercise, although I suspect he is more intrigued by the questions than he lets on.

We actually got into quite the discussion about your first question, but in the end we agreed it's best not to answer it. We fear that if we name any particular crossover, a badfic of it is sure to exist, whether or not it did before, and will then be sent to our console. In general terms, however, continua that have vastly differing tones and physical laws—say a silly children's cartoon and a hard sci-fi drama—would be particularly difficult to reconcile.

Nume says that he answered your second question the last time we answered letters. (He expressed this with more colorful language that I have chosen to omit.) I'll quote his previous response here: "Giving credit where it's due, Picard is the least terrible [of all the captains]. Kirk is Kirk, but I never liked him much. Don't see the appeal."

Agent Farilan? No, I don't believe I know anyone by that name. Should I?

    What, in your guys' expert opinions, are two continua that should never , under any circumstances, be mixed? Nume, Kirk or Picard? Ilraen, have you ever met Agent Farilan?

        My first mission with my partner was a crossover between Monster Musume, a romantic comedy harem manga, and Prototype, which is about as grimdark and bloody as you can get. I believe we in the... more

        I must say, it's a pleasure to finally meet another member of the noble Andalite race living in this... place.
        • Oh. Oh my.Agent Ilraen, Wed May 20 13:49
          I had no idea there were any other Andalites here besides Agent Iskillion and myself. Have you been here long? When did you arrive? How did you come to find yourself here? And... please excuse me, I... more

            You say you wish to meet Aldrea? A foolish girl who didn't know her place. You have clearly been living amongst humans for too long, especially since you no longer seem able to distinguish between... more
            • Well...Agent Ilraen, Thu May 21 14:30
              There aren't many female Andalites even named in the Animorphs series, let alone given any development. My choice was rather limited. But now you're here... I know I am not the picture of the ideal... more

                *slightly mollified. And flattered.* Well, you should still realize that these humans are inferior compared to ourselves. It does not behoove you to stoop to their level, Ilraen.

                    Could you perhaps explain why they allow their females to fight rather than have them go into more suitable departments such as Intelligence or Sufficiently Advanced Technology? ((Girl's got a... more

                      For one thing, I understand there have historically been far more female recruits than male, so if the organization limited itself to male action agents, it would be even more pitifully understaffed... more

                        Be that as it may, Ilraen, the fact of the matter remains that it is just not proper behavior. But very well, I will attempt to turn a blind eye, though I cannot say I will ever approve of the... more

                          Sorry. {= ( Yeah, it's tough getting into the head of a character you disagree with. Especially since we don't really know all that much about Andalite society, all things considered. I mean, do they ... more
                      • P.S. I remembered.Agent Ilraen, Fri May 22 23:42
                        The actual quote is from Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. The fuller passage runs as follows: "Do you mean to say that you allow your queens to fly—against Threads?" F'lar ignored the fact that... more
