Outline Revisions! (BZP STORY UPDATE)

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Dec 04 2014 · 169 views

Posted Image

So I spent a lot of tonight revising the outline for Extermination, mainly with the second half of the epic, and I must say, the odds are not in anyone's favor with regards to survival.

That cast of 40+ characters?

At this point in time, a grand total of not nearly as many as you think will survive. The final battle in particular is rather... bloody, to say the least.

I do believe that this will be the final draft of the outline; as far as actually writing it goes, I'm nearly finished Chapter 3, and anticipate that I shall be able to have as far as Chapter 5 finished by the end of this weekend.

Also, please vote for Entry 5 here!

HUNTED (BZP Story Preview!)

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Nov 28 2014 · 183 views

The following is an excerpt from EXTERMINATION:

He was kicked onto his back by the figure, towering above him. The Ba-Matoran raised his ruined right arm to shield himself, as a pair of glowing red eyes and the rough outline of a Kanohi Mask appeared in the shadows billowing out from the figure’s cloak.

“Who are you?” Voltex asked weakly, coughing. “Who… sent you… here?”

“I am the Shadow,” the figure said, taking aim even as Voltex desperately tried to pull his broken body out of harm’s way, “and I was sent to restore order.”

“You….”

“White Council… rebellions… always making a mess of the universe.” The figure said darkly. “A mess that I’ve got to clean up. Your greatest fear… you truly believe that you are the center of the universe? That you alone may throw this universe out of balance? Do you believe that so many should fall at your command?”

Voltex’s head hit the ground hard as he collapsed, weak and out of breath.
“As if they had never existed.” The figure said, pointing the rust cannon right at him. “Your punishment, then, is to no longer exist.”

---

The above is but a small portion of a scene that I've had in my head for a long time - and that I just finished writing. We'll see if the final product stands up in the eyes of you readers, but I like to think that it's a pretty big moment.

And perhaps... it might be exactly what you don't expect?

I'm gonna be honest

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library, Life, BZPower, Games & Trivia / RPG Nov 26 2014 · 128 views

I started working in a call center on October 20th (well, training, at least. I started on the floor two weeks later). I appear to be at least half-decent at the job - I'm an inbound CSR for things like home heating, cooling, sometimes plumbing + drains, sometimes water heaters, sometimes other things. Most of my newbie teammates get spoken to about their lack of sales or quality on a daily basis (or still don't know what they're doing) while I, in contrast, have been told once or twice that I am "doing alright".

I am okay with this. I'm averaging one sale a day and that seems to keep people off my back.

BUT.

I have been dealing with more stupid people these past few weeks than ever before in my life, and I have noticed it leaking (well, more like flooding) into my interactions everywhere else. While at home it is easy to avoid (I can just go into my room, after all) and it's easy to bottle it in at the YMCA (since I'm only there for 1-2 hours at a time anyway), I have noticed that's having an effect on me with regards to BZP - so if I've seemed overly harsh or whatever, I do apologize. They say that the first step to fixing a problem is to admit that you have one? So I will be doing my best to solve this.

This plays into the whole "I have too much on my plate" right now; I started this job, did NaNo, hosted Mafia XVIII, posted Book 2, started planning + writing Extermination, hosted Mafia XIX, hosted Bionifight, organized a variety of projects with different members, and started planning for future IRL stuff too (which would take too long to get into with this entry). So I'm doing my best to scale back, and hopefully that will help. In the meantime, I shall try to not let this newly negative-ized attitude of mine continue (or at least not let it continue affecting interactions here).

In other news, my boss at the YMCA might be looking for a "team lead" person for the days/nights that she's not in to sort of take on her role; I'm really hoping that I can claim that position, because it might give me enough hours to warrant leaving the call center. Plus, I've always enjoyed (and subsequently done better with) positions of responsibility like that. :)

Anyway that's my whole "insight into life" post for tonight. Looking back, I realize that I said I was going to start doing posts like this on a weekly/monthly basis but kind of stopped. Oh well.

THE TITLE! (BZP Story Update 3)

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Nov 25 2014 · 236 views

One year ago, we barely survived isolation....

And once we were free, we achieved extraction.

Then, we started an uprising. We rose up against the tyrants, taking the battle to them.

For a year, we have been at war.

But now....

Now, we are vanishing, one by one.

Now, we are being hunted.

Now, it is

OUTLINING (BZP Story Update 1)

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Nov 24 2014 · 83 views

I have completed the outline for the story that I've had members signing up for the past several days. :) The prologue is also complete; I'll probably go over it soon just to make sure it's good before I start writing the rest of the story.

Within the next few days, I'll be posting the full cast list for the story; and after that, the title shall be officially revealed!

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Nov 22 2014 · 391 views

Are you interested in being a character? Then fill out this form: (and if you'd like, check the previous signup entry) I'm planning for this story to be released mid-December.

Name: (Self-explanatory; I'd prefer your display name, or most commonly known variant)
Gender: (Also self-explanatory, I think. This can be anything - what you personally identify as, or what you'd like the character to identify as)
Element 1: (This is your preferred element; canon Matoran/Toa elements only, please) >> to those who have signed up before (you know who you are), this field will remain the same.
Element 2: (If I find that too many people have the same element above, I'll look at this one)
Other: (Any additional info you want to include; keep in mind that I will use the stuff here as a basis of inspiration, not as actual backstory)

Remaining Roles I'm Looking For
The Agents: These characters will serve another, more neutral faction in the story (Note that you would like to be one; this is for anyone)
Secret Person: Anyone new can apply for their character to be this as well; out of everyone who wants this role, I will select one. (Note that you would like to be this; only for new signups)

That last entry about killer Vahki? Yeah, that has something to do with this. What I'm looking for is anyone interested in being a character in this story.

I am in need of some help

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Oct 17 2014 · 119 views

I need a test reader for the first chapter of a new story I'm working on; I'm unsure of where it should be placed when I post in on BZP. I'm currently leaning towards Epics, but with the way the forums are set up I think it could possibly count as a comedy?

I'll probably end up posting it in epics anyway but whatever, comment below if interested
