If you were intrigued by the title of this entry, I apologise for having forced you to wait so long for updates to Frost Rising
. It upsets me that you will have to wait even further for updates to Matoro's story, but thankfully a new prospect is soon to arise.
You see, Frost Rising
never became what I envisioned. I pictured a Harry Potter-esque tale of a Matoran who must uncover various mysteries in training for an important role, whilst at the same time joining his friends through everyday life. It had the potential to become that, it truly did.
And yet, I was unprepared from the start. Never did I sit down to make a proper outline, nor even to establish a concrete ending or theme. All I had were a few character traits I wanted to endow the main characters with, and a few situations I wanted to explore.
Now, Frost Rising
is officially over, and yet, like some literary phoenix, a new and greater epic will rise from its ashes. Let it be known that I am starting Frost Rising over from the beginning.
While this is in no way what you have been waiting for, it is the only way that I can continue the story as it should be.
Perhaps I may put this off further (to the overall displeasure of fans) in order to create another epic as backstory, which highlights Nuju's Hordika days. However, I think that would better be expressed through the revelations that Matoro comes upon over the course of the story. Frost Rising will
return with a vengeance, even though it mayu take some time. I hope the most loyal of readers will await this with pleasure.
With all due respect,
