People constantly portray Hades in new age media as this totes evil bad guy, yet Zeus and Poseidon have fathered more monsters and people than he has and have raped women
while Hades is just there in the underworld with the one girl he kidnapped and agreed to let her free in the summer months with no children of his own, probably rolling his eyes and going ‘Guys, can we have a normal family dinner for once? Please?’
You know, as much as we like talking about how miserable and depressing and whatever the ending of Animorphs was, I think people forget the ways in which it was surprisingly hopeful. I mean, they found a way to give the yeerks and taxxons an out. Sure, I write about the ways that that solution didn’t quite cut it for some of them (Could Be Worse, Expatriate), but really, on the whole… that’s pretty damn optimistic.
