An Upcoming Comedy!

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 09 2015 · 332 views

G1 is dead. It’s deader than dead, deader than a doornail, super duper mega ultra permanently dead.

Yet there remain a few who disagree.

Tahu has been given great news: Lego wants to reboot Bionicle in 2015! However, there’s a problem. A few characters have been trapped in the dead G1 Universe, possessed and corrupted by the negativity of fans refusing to let go of the story they used to know. As long as they remain there, Lego is unable to reincarnate anybody into the G2 Universe, so Tahu is tasked with returning to the lost world of G1, saving the afflicted characters, and securing Bionicle’s chance at a new life.

Will he be able to save those stuck in G1? What will he learn in his journey through the past and into the future? And these magic boots might protect him and all, but don’t they at least come in a different color than silver?

Seriously, anything but silver would be nice.

Find out the answers to all these questions and more in The Comedy of Our Generation, a seven-part look back at G1 coming soon to the Comedies forum!

Spoiler alert: No, the boots only come in silver. We’re not off to a great start.

Regarding the Mask Makers, and Something Else...

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 07 2015 · 132 views

The Time of the Mask Makers, The Second Swing, is live in the Epics forum!

This part shows the reason why two very important masks were created, though one of them might come as a surprise! I’m also pleased to say that I’ve managed to get ahead of schedule and type up a rough draft for nearly the entire epic, so expect to see a new chapter every Saturday in February!

I’m also preparing yet another story, one that I should be able to start posting late February or early March. I can’t say too much yet, but I will say that it is going to be a comedy! My first attempt at one in a while, actually. Still, considering the subject matter, it shouldn’t be too hard to find some stuff to make everyone laugh and/or groan. I have a more official looking announcement scheduled for Monday, so keep your eyes peeled!

I'm Glad to Have Fiction Writing Back

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 02 2015 · 154 views
Divine Strength
In today's class we sang "Everything Is Awesome" and discussed the cleverness of old episodes of Spongebob before getting on to critiquing stories. One of the stories up was mine, which was the prologue and first chapter of my rough draft novel Divine Strength, and people actually seemed really into it and wanted more! (Which is what a good prologue and first chapter should probably do, I imagine.)

I was thinking of doing something unrelated for story 2, but hey, if they want Queens, I shall give them Queens!

...I don't want to just keep ripping pieces out of my novel draft, though, so I'm writing up a new thing focusing on an event that happened a few centuries prior to the novel. It's going to be primarily a battle and in the process I discovered that one of the Queens is a magical girl, and I'm hoping to make people angry by making the first few pages seem like a semi-cheesy love story before letting everything go brutally and horribly wrong.

That's what a good writer does, right?

However! Our alliance remains incomplete! I present to you, our current roster!

Former Vestal of Wind and now Pope of the Crystal Orthodoxy, Agnes Oblige, portrayed by Voltex!

The ordinary farmer who was touched by the Celestials, Tiz Arrior, portrayed by Blade!

An amnesiac who has already garnered a new reputation, Ringabel, portrayed by Ehks!

Elite Eternian soldier who has gone on to reform her country, Edea Lee, portrayed by JiMing!

But! We lack a member to portray the reliable recruiter and Bison of Solidarity, Nikolai Nikolanikov! We need YOUR help to complete this alliance and properly face the oncoming battle!

If you wish to take Nikolai’s position, please say so in the comments, for we would be very grateful to have you!

Fight bravely, my friends!

A New Epic!

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 31 2015 · 104 views

An even longer time ago, on the mythical island of Okoto, there were two brothers who lived in the Region of Earth. Having been taught the ways of the forge by their mother and an ancient, mystical art by their father, each sought out his own way to be useful to the village—sometimes aiding each other, sometimes clashing against one another. One fateful day, one of the brothers discovered a way to combine the forge and the mystic, and created something that would forever change the destiny of the island…


A Mask of Power.


The Time of the Mask Makers, The First Swing, is now live in the Epics Forum.

(It ended up kinda short but hopefully future parts will be longer, and I mean it kinda fits with G2’s storytelling right yeah it was totally planned)

MOTIVATION TIME

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 30 2015 · 102 views

Thanks BZP, you gave me one helpful answer so that I could break the tie of responses I got from Tumblr. Tumblr was more helpful than you what the heck that's just wrong.

Anyway, I've begun work on The Time of the Mask Makers, a fanfic exploring the backstory and characters of Ekimu and Makuta. Again, it will almost certainly be rejected by future canon, but I'm going to try to keep it reasonably based in what we know from the winter wave of the story. I've actually got a lot worked out in my head already and am really excited to write it down, so I may be able to post it semi-regularly! That should help me feel productive for a month or two.

Tentatively I'm planning five parts, each focusing on a specific point in time: the creation of the Masks of Power; the creation of the Mask of Control; the creation of the Mask of Creation; the establishment of the status quo described in the lore video (Ekimu being more popular than Makuta and all that), along with some other miscellaneous set-up; and, finally, the creation of the Mask of Ultimate Power, and the fateful clash between Ekimu and Makuta.

Part one should be up real soon, so please look forward to it!

Quick Question

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 29 2015 · 126 views

Hypothetically, if you were going to read a fanfic elaborating on the backstory of Ekimu and Makuta, would you rather see it take place in the Region of Earth or the Region of Water (for at least the first few chapters)?

Because I may or may not be planning a short epic that will almost certainly be torn to shreds by future canon and I need to decide where they grew up.

,,,

Hypothetically of course.

Pahrak Finally Posts Another Story

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 26 2015 · 107 views
Divine Strength
Well, I haven’t figured out any type of writing schedule yet, but I do at least have something to post!

As I mentioned, I am taking a Fiction Writing class this semester, which will require us to write three short (ish) stories over the span of the course. For my first assignment, I decided to (edit and) present the prologue and first chapter of the rough draft of the novel I’m working on, Divine Strength. I thought it would be a good way to see how the opening works as a first introduction to the idea, as, barring the teacher and two other students, this will be the first time this group has seen anything about the Queens.

Divine Strength: Prelude has been posted in the OTC Forum for anyone else who wishes to read it. I expect I’ll be posting the other two stories I create for this class there as well—as of yet, I am not sure if either of them will be related to the Queens or not, but the main point is that I’m putting more writing up on BZP. I will also try to work on some of that fanfiction I proposed a while back, and/or think up some regular prompt and post method.

I hope you enjoy the story!

Return of the Flowchart

I made it even simpler this time

Posted Image

I was going to go with "Has Lego officially announced it", but then I remembered those BZP articles on stuff found through "guessing URLs" which apparently don't count?

Aside from that one exception though the policy is really, truly, unbelievably, extremely simple.

Feel free to use this handy image when teling people why you're closing their topics or whatever, staff, I won't even ask for anything in return

Bravely Second + Pokken Tournament

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 23 2015 · 124 views

A little more information has come in on Bravely Second, mainly confirmation that Edea has been rebuilding Eternia and working with Agnes to create peace. It looks like "judging" the Asterisk Holders means meeting them, hearing their problems, and deciding who to help.

We also have some more info (and better images!) of some of the new Jobs, so I'll update the Asterisk Guides later today.

Also, the Pokken Tournament stream was this morning, and the game is looking great! Three new Pokemon were announced as playable: Pikachu, Gardevoir, and Suicune. A fighter select screen showed these three along with the previously confirmed Lucario and Machamp, and while this presumably is not the full roster, it is curious to not see Blaziken, who was featured with Lucario in the teaser clip so long ago.

Pokken Tournament will, despite being an arcade game, use a console-style controller with L and R and B and X and Y and A and all that, so maybe they will bring it to a console in the future! The game also features Support Pokemon you can call into battle to aid you (Emolga, Snivy, Lapras, and Fennekin have been shown), and there's more information (and footage) regarding the specific systems. It looks like each fighter has a gauge that, when full, can be used to enter a super mode, which is Mega Evolution for those Pokemon capable of it.

Late January and mid February, people will be able to test out the game in certain arcades, so I'm looking forward to hearing what people's impressions are. I'm actually really psyched for this game and dearly hope it makes it out of Japan.
