Yes, not all stories have happy endings. But endings, happy or unhappy, should MEAN something. Ending Bionicle with despair would have zero meaning, being "edgy" and "dark" but also "terrible" and "idiotic".
Sometimes I think people proclaiming their love of G1 have mixed up the meanings of "love" and "hate".
I wrote a fanfic? A BIONICLE fanfic!? I guess miracles do exist.
FLOW LIKE WATER
Gali was exhausted. Her legs ached from swimming all day—which she had been doing for weeks now, following a figure she hardly knew. Her guide called herself the “Protector of Water,” and Gali didn’t even know how much she could be trusted—but this mysterious character seemed to know who she was and why she was here, which was more than Gali herself had any recollection of...
Anyway, I didn't spend all that much time on this, so I'm not making any promises about quality. But feel free to head to the topic to check it out!

Source: What do you want to see in the Lego Batman Movie?
On another note—I love the theme of the movie we've heard about from Phil Lord and Chris Miller: Can Batman be happy? It's a question worth asking, in an era where DC and Warner Bros. think that audiences still only want gritty, angst-ridden, "realistic" superheroes in movies, or with high-profile marriages between DC comics characters being aborted because "Superheroes shouldn't have happy personal lives." If Lego is what it takes to get DC Comics out of its recent funk, I think it'll be a good thing for the comics market and the superhero genre in general.
More photos, video, and even a digital download are available from the MOC topic!
So recently, inspired by an offhand comment my twin brother made about wanting to see/build an updated version of the classic Nui-Rama set, I decided to try my hand at a MOC.
After much planning, preparation on LDD, and scavenging parts from recent Technic sets, the result is what you see here. A "Skull Sandfly" (still not 100% sold on the name, but I like the alliteration). I tried to recreate the look of the classic set while giving it a much-needed update, with CCBS parts replacing the classic low-posability Bionicle limbs and the dated Throwbot/Slizer gearbox cleared out to make way for a custom gearbox which utilizes the knob gears from this year's Technic-heavy Toa and Lord of Skull Spiders. The function looks better (thanks in part to the wings from Gorast and Thornraxx) and arguably works better, with less wobble and a better grip for the handle. The jaw and claws are now posable, thanks to parts from last year's Hero Factory sets, and the eyes are now solidly attached instead of weirdly popping off like other masks. And at 103 pieces, it gives the original a run for its money in terms of bulk and building experience as well.

I have six #Binacle2015 left, with one destiny—to be traded DIRECTLY to BZP members who are interested in them! For those who don't have me on their Friend List, my Friend Code is 0817-4310-5392. If you're interested in one of my Binacle (or just want to add me to your Friend List for the heck of it), either post your Friend Code here or PM it to me and we can set up a time to trade!
So over the past weekend I set to work on a little project to celebrate the return of Bionicle.
Announcing... Project #Binacle2015!
I've bred 30 Binacle on my Omega Ruby version and nicknamed every one of them "#Binacle2015". And I'm planning to Wonder Trade them all at approximately 12:00 pm EST (noon) on January 1st, 2015. These aren't rare Pokémon, they're statistically average, and they don't have any egg moves or hidden abilities. But if you're interested in getting one of these commemorative Pokémon, stock up on Pokémon to Wonder Trade at the given time in the hopes of nabbing one for yourself!

Now, to the spoilery bits, sorted for your viewing convenience.
So yeah. I was extremely satisfied with the finale as a whole. Mike and Bryan don't seem intent on returning to the Avatar universe right away, but that's okay—I'll be glad to see whatever they might come up with next.
