There are some things I hope to work on in the coming year. Obviously I aim to continue Okoto 579, and my first story adapting the 16 arc, The Age of the Hunter, is already underway. (Not exactly far, but…underway.) If my outline holds, I’m hoping to put a lot of focus on the Toa in this story, since they’ve been hugely overlooked in the series thus far. I also want to try doing more with other Protectors—Korgot’s really stolen the show, her mother was important in The Time of the Mask Makers, we had an old Protector of Ice in In Our Bones, and Izotor had a brief appearance in Strike of the Hour, but…that’s it. Though to be honest, I think Kivoda, Nilkuu, and Vizuna might all stay less important. And of course we’ve got our new star Umarak, who will be getting plenty of screen time! Who else will make appearances, I wonder?
Regrettably, I’m still not quite finished with Shooting Star Sonia. I’m quite close, though! The next chapter, providing a scenario for Crown Thunder, is typed up and will probably be posted very soon, and all that’s left is the finale. Of course the finale’s going to be very long—a whole arc, really. It’s kind of necessary thanks to all those boss rematches Mega Man games throw at you in final stages. Things will be changed around a bit, of course, but it’ll still take a few chapters (current outline has the story ending with 17 chapters total). I’ve gotten started on the first chapter of this arc, but it remains to be seen just when I’ll get everything finished.
And of course I’ll be hosting Technic Tournament 3 & Knuckles at some point in January or February. I’m keeping that name.
In addition, there’s a brand new fanfic I’m hoping to get underway expanding on some ideas I used in several of my Reference Roulette pieces. I don’t have a working title at the moment, unfortunately, but I can tell you that it is set about 100,000 years after the Reformation of Spherus Magna, at a time where Toa transformed by the Red Star are the norm and society has been struggling to recover from the devastating civil war of the Great Beings. A small team of Toa will discover the hope their world has been looking for, but they must act quickly to protect it from one final enemy left to them by now-ancient nightmares.
I think that’s everything I’m planning at the moment. I mean, there are a few other things on the back burner—Divine Strength, Amalgam Atlas, maybe even Kaita Legacy (which was like halfway done before I stopped)—but I don’t have any meaningful developments to report on in that department. I’m also considering a new comedy, but I haven’t done any significant brainstorming just yet.
Well, hoping you all have a merry Christmas and happy new year and whatnot.
