Letters From the Void


omg kh3 spoilers

Posted by Noise #0579 , Oct 30 2013 · 73 views

In a shocking twist, Darkness Number VII was revealed to be Hououin Kyouma, main character of the popular visual novel/anime Steins;Gate.  Kyouma makes many cryptic remarks, claiming events are "the choice of Kingdom Hearts."  He will form a hostile rivalry with Kairi, mainly due to his insistence on calling her "Kylie."  This strange man was sought out by Xehanort for his ability to retain memories from other timelines, allowing him to violate the laws of time travel and change the past.  Whenever one of the Darknesses is killed, he laments over not being able to save them, evidently having seen them all die over and over and over again.
In battle, his weapon is a cell phone, and his element is Dr. Pepper; one of his attacks will turn all of Sora's potions into Dr. Pepper bottles and scatter them around the field, where Kyouma can pick them up and restore his own HP.  Should you use a continue, he will taunt you over your defeat and pick up using whatever strategy he was using when he killed you, showing that he is aware of the slip in time.
"I am Xehanort!  It's so cool!  Sonuvagun!"


Temporal and Canonical Restraints

Posted by Noise #0579 , Aug 20 2013 · 107 views

Obligatory comment about officially being here nine years: woohoo
Moving on.
On Monday my next semester of classes starts, and it looks like I may have a bit more work this time around considering my science fiction class has asked me to buy nine different novels.  In addition, I’ve got a part-time job now, so that’ll also take up some of my time.  I’m not complaining, just saying I’ll have less free time over the next few months.
Even less once I get my hands on Pokémon Y heheheh…
This is obviously going to mean less BZP time.  The only things I’m really working on here are Technic Coliseum, which has slowed to a crawl anyway, and Bioni-Lords, which only a handful of people read.  I should be able to stay up-to-date with the Coliseum.  As for Bioni-Lords, I’ll work on it when I can, but the frequency of new chapters may drop even lower than it has been lately.  Sorry about that.
To be honest, though, I’m getting really frustrated with Bioni-Lords.  I decided when I started this flashback book that I wasn’t going to contradict canon outside of what had already been explained away by “the Retcon.”  Seemed like a good idea.  Now that I’m actually writing the darn thing, I keep bumping into restrictions that are a real pain, primarily in regard to Tahra and Zempyst.  Unless I do some rearranging, they’ve got some nasty fates in store, which is something I really don’t want to follow through on; not just because I like the characters, but because their respective presences provide things that Bioni-Lords sorely needs.  Tahra is probably the closest thing I have to a great female character (though I feel like there are still some problems with how I’m handling her), and Zempyst’s relationship with Aile is one of the first times the story has stepped towards any form of diversity.  Upon realizing this, I came to the conclusion that I was a close-minded cool dude when I developed this canon, and I will not make any excuses.  I’m deeply sorry and I promise to do my best to improve.
I don’t mean to overstate the importance of Bioni-Lords, of course.  It’s an obscure fanfiction that can’t be anything more than practice for when I try to write other stories.  But that’s just it: it’s practice for me.  I need to home in on what I need to change and try to actually change it.  Still, when the characters I think I can actually use in this process already have tragic ends, it doesn’t feel like I’m really making a whole lot of progress.  With the first two Books being offline, though, this could give me a chance to just go ahead and retcon.  I don’t know…maybe there’s still a way I can twist things to get the practice I need while not entirely contradicting canon.
I guess I’ll try to figure that out, then.  Hoping I get it down soon, because I think Vitirus is going to fall into this category too…


Pain and Pokemon. Mostly Pokemon.

Posted by Noise #0579 , Aug 17 2013 · 83 views

I decided to watch Madoka this week.  I'm still in pain.
But Pokemon news helps me forget the pain!  Game Freak is holding a Pokemon Game Show over in Japan right now, featuring a demo of X and Y focusing on Mega Evolutions!  Apparently you activate it using a special button on the move screen, and you can use a move the same turn that you activate it.  The demo lets you use Mega Mewtwo.  Impatience rising.  In addition, it confirms that you now run by default, and holding the B button slows you down to a walk.  Very good.  I believe there was also a report saying there would be just under 50 Mega Evolutions in the game? (Not 100% sure on this one.)
There's also some news about the Fairy type being introduced into the TCG, and a new anime called Pokemon The Origin.  It's not clear if it's a special or a mini-series or what, but it takes us back to Kanto to follow the story of Pokemon Trainer Red, so it sounds pretty flipping awesome.  I'm too lazy to link the trailer, but you should go watch it.


Pahrak's Latest Bright Idea

Posted by Noise #0579 , Aug 10 2013 · 150 views
It’s insomnia-fueled idea sharing time again!
Due to some anime I've seen, I want to do a story with personifications of stuff, and right now I’m thinking I may try with the islands in Bionicle.  Tentatively thinking title could be “Geonicle” (Geographical Chronicle)…anyway, it’d be about a bunch of Toa-like beings named after the various islands, with traits and abilities tied to that island.  Interaction will hopefully imitate canon events.  Also thinking each one can summon a “Geo Blade,” with the size reflecting the size of the island they represent.  Might also give each one an Element.  Anywho, character brainstorming!  See if you can get all the jokes!
-Mata (Nui): Male, looks like Glatorian Mata Nui with a Kanohi Hau.  Thinks he’s above everyone else, sometimes pretends the other Islands don’t exist.  Capable of flinging Bohrok out of his body.  Earth.
-Metru (Nui): Female, maybe Toa Metru design?  Strict and serious, considers self very sophisticated.  Also flings Bohrok.  Psionics.
-Voya (Nui): Female, not sure on design.  Used to be very sickly, but since getting better she’s become a real travel fanatic.  Generally rather quiet, but extremely powerful.  Clumsy, usually crashes into Mahri.  Stone.
-Mahri (Nui): Female, probably Hahli Mahri design.  Though she used to be very kind, over the years she’s grown increasingly crazy and sadistic.  However, each day she reverts to her old self for about an hour, which the other Islands refer to as “safe hour”, and she never takes her anger out on Voya.  Water.
-Karda (Nui): Female, don’t know about design.  Energetic beyond belief, very powerful, capable of charging the other Islands.  Also a very good cook.  Lightning.
-Karzahni: Probably just going to use the being that’s already named Karzahni.  Plasma.
-Artakha: Same.  Gravity.
-Zakaz: Male, obviously a Skakdi.  Rude and violent, routinely breaks into Voya’s home while she’s gone to try to rob her (usually beaten up by Mahri).  Has Utility Vision, which lets him do pretty much anything with his eyes.  Air.
-Xia: Female, probably Roodaka-based.  Has a mind for business, great at making things, traitorous.  Magnetism.
-Stelt: Male, looks like Krekka.  Big, strong, and dumb.  Obsessed with Visorak, usually manipulated by Xia.  Ice.
-Destral: Male, looks like a Makuta.  Hates the other Islands, routinely tries to destroy them.  Has a habit of popping up out of nowhere.  Shadow.
-Odina: Male, probably based on the Shadowed One.  Has a criminal empire, along with an eye for business that enables him to get along well with Xia.  Often gets in fights with Destral.  Sonics.
-Daxia: Female, Helryx-like.   Tough and sometimes violent.  Likes to watch Destral and Odina fight.  Light.
-Nynrah: Male, maybe a Fe-Matoran?  Keeps to himself most of the time, but people will often ask him to make things for them.  Artakha values his work, but Xia seems him more as a competitor.  Iron.
-Visorak: Male, not a whole lot of details aside from ability to fling Visorak and shoot webs like Spider-Man.  The Green.
-Artidax: Male, don’t know about design, probably an explosive temper.  Stole something from Destral a few years back—Destral wants to retrieve it, but Daxia is also trying to get her hands on it.  Fire.
-Thinking I could also include the planets at some point.  Bara (Magna) would be very independent, but nobody really likes him.  Bota (Magna) is a nice enough guy, but no one knows he exists, or bothers to remember his name or anything.  Aqua (Magna) is well-liked, seen as a big sister by the Islands.  Not 100% sure on how Spherus (Magna) would be represented though.


Mega Pokemon

Apparently this is a legit thing.
Some Pokemon now get Super Saiyan forms.
Not sure how I feel about this yet.


Not a Whole Lot to Say...

Posted by Noise #0579 , Aug 03 2013 · 99 views

Hey, guess what?  The Platinum Avohkii is on sale again!  It's cheaper this time, but I still can't afford it...
In other news, I managed to get two chapters of Kako up in the past week.  Hoping to get the next one done soon.
Aside from that...well, the Technic Coliseum tournament starts on Monday.  That's pretty much it.  It's been an uneventful week, not that I'm complaining.


Somewhere, Whenua is Weeping

Posted by Noise #0579 , Jul 27 2013 · 127 views

Managed to whip up a comedy for the monster contest: AQUA MAGNA ATTACK ON MARENDAR 10.1010 THIS IS (NOT) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.  Figured it was worth a try.
Hm, with the Archives closing down, I guess I should do something about Bioni-Lords Books 1 and 2.  It would take way too long to repost them, and they're really not that good anyway--if I were to redo it, I'd like to wipe all the canon and start with a fresh slate, but that'll take way, WAY too long.
So here's what I'm thinking: I'll make a series of blog posts summarizing Books 1 and 2 arc by arc, along with a Bioni-Lords Master Post to hold all those links, plus the websites, plus the Kako link.  Also might put up a few important battles as blog posts, like Khadaz vs Union, Khadaz vs the 10th, and the Terminal Trial chapters.  Final Stretch is still on these Forums, so I may just skip the summary of Sekai Final arc.
Do you guys have any thoughts on this?  Suggestions and whatnot?
In related news, I put a few more Spirits online--another Mega Man Star Force Spirit and some based on characters from a new anime I've started watching/the game it's based on.
The next Kako is fully written, I just need to type it up!  I hoped to get it done tonight, but it looks like I'll be busy for a little while, and after that there's an...important event I wish to view (read: Doctor Who special).  But I'm off work tomorrow, so it shouldn't be a long wait!


Oh, There Goes The Link Bandwagon

Posted by Noise #0579 , Jul 26 2013 · 80 views

I feel like I should jump on, but the only social media I frequently use is Tumblr.
And I'm not giving you my Tumblr.
The reason being that, to quote a certain Jedi, "you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" than Tumblr.
I've blended a bit and swear a lot on my blog over there.  I mean, maybe if I were to behave long enough to get one full page without swearing, I could link it, but...no.
The good thing about this, and one of the main reasons I still use Tumblr, is because this type of atmosphere doesn't make me feel like I'm under that much pressure.  Other sites like Facebook are so widely used now that you need to keep up appearances--how many of us have had to refrain from saying what we really think because one or both of our parents could easily view such a status?
I guess I just feel like I can behave however I want on Tumblr, which is a nice feeling.
That being said, my side/roleplaying blog, Ask Yandere Vhisola, should be clean, so I'll just leave a link here and see what happens.  (I haven't been very active with this lately, but that's partly due to me running low on Nokama images from BioSector I can link to.)


Happy Birthday BZPower!

Here's to even more years!
A giant monster contest?  Must force self to enter.
In regards to the Technic Coliseum voting, eleven fighters have 3 or more votes, so they'll be added soon.  It may take a while before I'm done.
Other news?  Well, Kingdom Hearts X is officially released in Japan.  There's also Comic-Con, which has given some news on the new Adventure Time and Regular Show games, which I must admit I'm looking forward to.  They also talked about Korra Book 2, airing in September!  As good as the whole series has been thus far, truth is I'm more interested in learning about the first Avatar than anything else.  I just wished they had thought of something more creative than "Wan". (Wan?  One?  Hrm.)  There could be some other news, but I haven't seen it yet.  Back to looking!


Some Stuff

Posted by Noise #0579 , Jul 13 2013 · 72 views

So Clannad is a pretty good anime.  You know, if you like crying your eyes out.
Also, I ended up seeing the last half of Syfy's Sharnado since there was nothing else on.  It was exactly what you'd expect.  I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard.
There's been a ton of Pokemon news lately, plus the new movie is out in Japan!  I'm already getting a tentative team together.  I'm thinking Froakie, Yveltal, Honedge, and Noivern for now...going to need a Ground type to cover the Electric weakness of Yveltal, though.
In other news, Kingdom Hearts X [chi] is now holding an open beta!  It's free to play, but you'll need a Japan Yahoo ID to access it.  I don't really feel like making one.
I've posted a new short story: Programming Disconnect.  With all the talk about how shipping is non-canon in the MU, I decided it would be interesting to write something about an Agori falling in love with a Matoran who is incapable of understanding (let alone returning) those feelings.  Being an author, I enjoy finding new ways to torment readers.
