The Show's About to Start!

Writing, BZPower, Reborn
Some may have noticed the big, fancy banner that's replaced my text signature as of late. You might've also noticed the date I posted in my profile feed. That's because I'm almost ready to start posting a new G1 Bionicle fanfic I've been playing around with since last January.

Curtain lifts Saturday. I hope you'll enjoy my story. :)


BrickCon Pictures

Alright, time for the recap!

Getting to Seattle was difficult, mostly because Akaku and I didn't have access to my car -- and in any case, I had no experience driving downtown. We wound up taking a bus or two. Not the most efficient, or comfortable, way, but it got us there.

Things seemed both a bit packed and yet not as packed this year. Lots of impressive MOCs, though! Special note to a remote-controlled R2-D2, and a remote-controlled mouse droid (those rolling toaster ovens that ran around on the Death Star).

The Bionicle table was a lot smaller this year, and not in its usual place of mid-back (more like the back-back). There was a lot of cool MOCs but - somewhat worryingly - no members hanging around. (We got to the hall at around 11:50.)

After some heartbreaking moments of concern that we were the only members there -- eureka! We found one!

Pictured: Roa McToa and her amazing Makuta of Okoto MOC. Not pictured: Akaku fanboying.

We had a lovely chat, and -- our hope restored -- we went on the hunt again. And we found more!

Pictured: GSR and Kakaru. Not pictured: Cajun.

We all had a chat, a couple of the metal pieces I brought with me got passed around (my bronze Shelek, and my Kohrak-Kal ring), and then -- the fire alarm got pulled.


We regrouped outside, and met up with Cederak and Ezorou. After a few moments getting acquainted, we decided to take our unscheduled break to get lunch at the Armory. We spent about 1.5 hours eating and chatting together, then returned to the convention hall.

Fortunately, during the break, more members came out of the woodwork.

We had a great time, but with the end of the con day coming up (and my getting dizzy), we needed to get going. I took one last picture, then headed to find the bus home.

All in all, despite issues with the transportation and finding other members, this was probably the best BrickCon I've ever gone to! Can't wait until next year! ^^

EDIT: The Brickshelf gallery I put all the pictures in is now public!

(warning, not all of them were cropped before uploading)


Brickcon Saturday!

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower Oct 03 2015 · 68 views
Brick event, Inferna and Akaku and 1 more...
Well, aside from some issues with our transportation, we had a great time! I'll make a post with our pictures of the things we saw soon, once I've gotten them all uploaded. :)

(Shout-out to the lunch crew! That was the most fun I've had in a long time. ^^)


Spring Quarter's finished

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower, Writing, School, Video Games, Life Jun 09 2015 · 38 views

Posted Image

Sorry about the inactivity, but the third year of college definitely takes priority. At least now I can put some time into my writing again.

Here's a quick list of stuff I wanted to mention.

House of Wolves DLC: Loads of fun; I'm of the opinion that with its release, Destiny was definitely made worth the money I've sunk into it. With the Playstation exclusive stuff due to arrive to the Xbox soon, I'm eager to get on that as well.

Rebirth/other fanfics: Now that my quarter has finished, I should be able to start writing, and posting, chapters for Rebirth. As its got my attention and interest for now, Wings is officially on hiatus, at least until I feel like going back to it.

Random life stuff:
-Come tomorrow, I will turn 21 in a month. How did that happen?
-Wasn't able to get a sweet internship at my mom's workplace that I had my eye on (it was paying, too!), so I'm still photographing at the zoo for my summer job. I'm aiming to try and get an internship, or a job, at a publishing company next school year, so I'll have a place to start when I graduate from college next spring (all being well!)
-The carpenter ants stopped invading my room about three weeks ago. Either they ran out of male fliers or they found another way out of the colony that doesn't go inside the building. Either way, I can sleep easier now.

So ... yeah. How're things with all of you?



Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, BZPower Feb 17 2015 · 208 views
Writing again?, Maybe?
So I'm more or less still sticking around again. I won't be as active as I was back in the site's heyday, since I'm mostly sticking to DA these days.

That said, I'm considering starting to post my Bionicle fanfics here, as few as they are. I still have my Wings topics, so if I get that off the ground again I'll probably post chapters there, and I'm toying with a new story idea that might take precedence over it.

All being said, I want to know if there's anyone here that would read and/or reply to them. Call me egotistical, but I do like hearing what people think about my work.



I'm Back? Maybe?

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Life, BZPower Feb 13 2015 · 251 views
Hi guys
So apparently I still remember my password here so I can access my profile, and I'm still Premier, too. I was originally just here to try and remake contact with a couple old friends, but ... well, maybe my leaving the site isn't as permanent as I thought a couple years ago.

We'll see.

In any case, hi again. How've things been?


I'm Done

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in World Wide Web, BZPower Oct 31 2013 · 412 views

I've been thinking about making a final break with BZP for a long time now. Heck, I've been doing so in all but name for the last year or so, when I was barely active. But after this latest hack, enough is enough.
Most of my work is gone, victims of the various hackings and data losses. Most of my friends have left already. My reader base here is not enough for me to have the motivation to continue Wings or Break of Day -- here, anyway. 
My friends know where to find me online: I use this same name on most of the other sites I'm on. I'd list them, but I don't trust the site enough for them to not have their names removed when I bring them up. If you see me there, comment or send a note and mention how I know you; I'll reply pretty quickly.
It's been fun, BZP, but all things come to an end. Happy Halloween.


And now for something much more cheerful

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, BZPower Aug 31 2012 · 190 views

I've been doing more in the last month than moping over the fact Ak's not here anymore, getting my soul stolen by Skyrim (and other entities), and ranting at RPGs. I've been doing what I'm supposed to do. Ya'know, writing.

And I finally have something to show for this.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration -- Chapter 14 of Wings


Why I don't like playing TBRPGs anymore

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower Aug 19 2012 · 365 views

(Something of a rant ahead, with personal, recent references. You've been warned.)

I think it's not a secret that I enjoy(ed) RPGs here -- I have an entire quote block here immortalizing quotations in various games I've been in, for crying out loud.

My problem now, though, is that times are changing and I'm not changing with them, for good or for bad.

Anyone else remember the days that when you joined an RPG, you were always given a chance to counter another player's post with your own, assuming it was within the rules of the game? Or when if someone godmodded, practically half the players active at the time would publicly call them out, not just one or two GMs who did so privately so they didn't seem like they were picking on the player in question?

... exactly.

Overall, Transformers: Alignment was initially good but ... I'm not gelling with it anymore. What I've cited above are common instances in said RPG. Even the fact Basilisk and I have basically thrown the entire Decepticon faction into civil war isn't making it easier to tolerate this stuff. Especially since he's thinking about leaving the game.

I'm thinking about that too.

Because really, if my playing style doesn't fit with the majority, I'd rather not keep trying to use a fence as a dam. I'd rather just walk away.

I'm not saying I'm resigning from my post as Staff in Alignment, but I'm not far from doing so, especially with college approaching for me.

Thanks for listening. :)


Just as a Heads-Up

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Toa Seneca, BZPower, Life Jul 18 2012 · 334 views

In 13 days, I'll be going more or less offline for about a week and three days. I'll only be on long enough to check PMs, maybe write an IC or two in Alignment, and possibly post a chapter of Wings, assuming I get it done.


Well, a certain Canadian that I'm in an LD-relationship with is coming down to Washington for a visit. :P

And then after he goes home, I have college orientation.

So yeah.

With that said, if you hear reports of spontanious explosions at Sea-Tac airport, or Swert's shop gets stormed between the 1st-8th of August, that'd probably be us.

I apologize in advance. :P

(Alsothefactnoonewantsmymetalssaddensme;_; )


Wanted: Rpgers

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower Jul 07 2012 · 255 views

So some of you might know of an upcoming COTRPG called Transformers: Alignment. It recently got its final vote of approval from the judges, so it won't be long before it's rolling.

Anyone joining in on it, other than myself, Basilisk, Krayzikk, and Doctor Wotz?


I Have To Ask

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, World Wide Web, BZPower Jun 26 2012 · 176 views

I've got a bunch of metals stuff lying around that I made over the last three years, and I'm thinking about selling them.

Would anyone be interested?



Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, BZPower Jun 02 2012 · 297 views

Assuming you have wi-fi in that trunk of yours (or were let out), I've got news for you.

Your commission is cast and nearly ready to be shipped. =P

Posted Image

Still needs a little cleaning work, but I like how it came out. Also, it's friggen huge on my finger.

Hope you like it; it's practically the only thing that went the way it was supposed to this week.


So I Finally Played Minecraft

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Video Games, World Wide Web, BZPower May 26 2012 · 132 views

Alright, it's not too bad.

I'll probably stick to Ak's server, though. :P


New Writing Contest

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, BZPower May 26 2012 · 127 views

I'm in. ^^

Just posted my Day 1 entry, In the Swirling Vapors. Not sure if I'll do any of the CoT themes, but I'll definately give the Bionicle ones a shot. =)


Transform And Roll Out [Metals]

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, BZPower, Toa Seneca May 16 2012 · 143 views

Posted Image

... or, the other Transformers belt buckle I've recently finished. xD

It looks a little different from the Decepticon one because I used a different method to carve the wax (the Dcon one was carved by handtools, while this one was carved using a machine), but I like how this one came out.

(Not for sale, btw.)


My Tribute To The King Of Puns

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, BZPower Apr 18 2012 · 207 views

(aka: DeeVee's finished commission xD)

A pair of '01 Kakamas, cast in yellow bronze (once again Mark decided to ignore my instructions for white bronze >_>), held in my hand to better show their shininess.

Expect these arriving in your mailbox soon, DV. ^_^

(title reference: Here)


A Question To Swert

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in World Wide Web, BZPower Apr 02 2012 · 148 views

Did you have anything to do with this?

(naturally I find out what the April Fool's joke was the day after April Fool's Day)


It's Official: I Am Ninja

Kagha: (asdasfgwdadtgsdf dsaf internet derped on me X_X)
Akaku: jack: -drums his fingers on the treasure chest in his lap, looking at his compass hoping it will lead him to a good hiding spot- "...i think you should order more rum for the keep." jack says, hardly paying attention to what kagha is actually saying-
Inferna: (you didn't miss anything )
Akaku: (XD you didnt miss anything )
Kagha: (phew)
Akaku: (D=)
Inferna: (hahaha ninja )
Kagha: (also you got ninja'd XD)
Akaku: (lol double ninja all the way across the sky)
Akaku: (>:C TRIPLE XD)
Kagha: (XD)
Inferna: (IT'S A RECORD =D)
Akaku: (theres more ninjas here then a bruce lee movie)

All bow down to my ninja-ness! XD



Metals Update

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, BZPower Mar 05 2012 · 114 views

Decepticon Symbol Belt Buckle: awaiting casting

Autobot Symbol Belt Buckle: in early creation stages

DeeVee's commission: ... not too great.

Apparently when I emphasized to Mark that I wanted the Kakamas to be in white bronze as opposed to regular yellow bronze (last time that resulted in Zarayna's Matatu being in the wrong metal), he took that as an indication that I wanted it in a special metal, and attempted using copper on it.

To put it bluntly, it didn't cast right at all, so I don't even have the masks in another metal. On top of that, when I complained to him that it was a commission piece, his reaction was "... why didn't you tell me? I would've taken it seriously then."

Mark. You're a teacher. You should take every piece seriously. -.-

So yeah, basically I'm back to square one on the commissions and getting more Kakamas. Sorry, DeeVee. :(

These halls have seen much. From tales of heroes and friendship to tales of villains and death, from stories familiar to the ones out of our world, they have seen them all.

Enter Seneca's Keep if you dare. These halls ring with the laughter, screams, and sobs of those that enter our realms and listen to our words. Many leave in the end, but there are those that fall so under our spell that they never set foot in the outside world again.

They still haunt the Keep -- you may see them out of the corner of your eye, pale and wane from lack of proper sustance. They will not harm you, so long as you do not give them reason to, but take their tale as a warning. Delve into our otherworldly plots with caution -- immerse yourself too deeply, and even we Seneca will not be able to prevent you from becoming part of the Keep and our stories forever.

Join us at your own risk.

The Toa Seneca And Their Wares

Who We Are: "Seneca" means "place of stones" in a certain Native American dialect. This relates to the Amaja Circle on Mata Nui, the story-telling pit where the Turaga used stones to represent various points of a story. In some way -- be it through Role-Playing in the RPG forum or CoT, writing stories in the Library, or creating comics in the Creative Outlet -- we all tell stories to others. By ourselves and with the aid of others, we bring these tales to life. We are the Storytellers. We are the Toa Seneca.

~La Pantoufle Seule ~: OOC: ME TO THE RESCUE. -fanfare plays while I jump off building-



Alex Humva: Zarry has the powers of prediction, guys. Listen to him, lest you become a fly on honeypaper thats on fire with a nuke aimed at it.

Shot by a PHYSICIST!: *Spittake* Three point five? That does it. I'm moving to Washington.

Japoro (in an arguement with Kagha about the possiblity of AeolusxAmph in H&H): You say she wants to dump me for some loser air toa?! I KILL YOU FOOL!

Akaku: I'm not scared of Inferna -- just fearfully surprised.

Sir Kohran: If your parents think you're too old for Lego, simply ask them what you should be into instead, then enjoy the bewildered silence that follows.

Me: On a weird scale we're all normal, but on a normal scale we're all weird.

Half-Dragon: Seems like everyone and their archnemesis has a legacy. Me? I don't even HAVE an archnemesis, let alone a legacy. Does that make me shallow or just really lucky?

Akaku: I like to pretend everything is going well whilest in reality its nothing short of the apocalypse.

AlchemyFox: All love is tragic... Unless you're Shakespeare. Then it's just plain "Whaaaaaat?"

Dalek: I guess I can blame this confusion on your being knocked out with smoke. You are currently in a cell, with LK in the cell to your right, Tahu01 in the cell to your left, and Turakii in the cell to the right of LK's. I turned on Tahu01, knocked you all out, and stuck you in these cells. Now I'm gonna hold you all for a ransom of 500,000 widgets each.


Dalek: *teleports Nikira to Smeag-proofed cell* Pay the 500,000 widgets, or I test my new ray gun on her! >=D

Smeag (in Nikira's profile): There is no such thing as a Smeag-proof cell. My blundering bombast overcomes all. As you can see, I've already rescued her. >:3

Necro: A lie is just a great story that someone ruined with the truth.

Varderan: Violence makes the world go around.

Along with pretzels and assorted hair products.

Kagha (about something I told him from LST): ... DEATH?

Amph's gonna die?

*runs into basement, pulls out hammer, and runs after Inferna*

Kagha in KG: Anyway, curse you all and your stupid fast-moving RPG. ><

(My personal statement) "Interjection: Silence, meatbags!" - HK-47

Mangai (in my profile): @ Personal statement: Oh, yeah! HK RULEZ

Too bad I never played KotOR, or its sequel XP

Me (in his profile): Actually, that quote came from a MMO trailer that follows KOTOR II. =P

Mangai (in my profile): CARKITALL

Oh, well, now I have proof that I am unawesome for Zar. Thanks! :P

More Quotes

Alex (in KG): YAY-*Choughhackwheeze*

Necro: Wait.

If guitars are universes, and I play with and own multiple guitars, does that make me a God?


Alex (in Starscape): an era when Natsirt claimed to be guns

King of Shadows (in Starscape): BEST ERA OF ANYONE'S HISTORY ANYWHERE

Peach 00 (in PM): Always loved the Song of Double Time on Majora's Mask. Watch, we'll figure out somebody on the planet has an ocarina and is the source of why the year is going by so fast. :P

Myself (in an AIMRPG; as Toa of Psionics Kalima): "Who's he?"

Akaku (in the AIMPRG; as Toa of Undeath Akuji): "He ... He is part of everything ... He is the age in a being, the disease in a society, the bullet in a gun... He is what gives this world balance. He is the one who looks after the fallen, and either sends them to the pit or the realm of the great beings ... He is among all of us, even now, especially in my kingdom ... especially in me."

Why Inferna Shouldn't Play Rpgs

Rockhound (in the BZProvince Discussion Topic, fighting Xom and Kagha over my character): We really should get all three of us together and brawl it out. Winner-date-'Ferna. :P

Kagha (in KG): Lol, Xom, Inferna can only have so many romantically involved characters. XD

Rockhound (in KG): Says who, Kagha? :P

Xomeron (in KG): If by "So Many" you mean Infinity. In BZProvince, she had four people chasing after her character at once! My character included.

HN (in KG): OOC: Inferna, I am not going to IC six guards all fighting two people. xD
And Inferna, wouldn't that mean that you're fighting Mark? o_o; Do you want me to take Mark.
-i didnt give Inferna an idea I DIDNT I DIDNT-
-in denial-

Me (in KG): OOC: Thanks for the ideaaaa.[/singsongvoice] :evilgrin:

Me (in KG): OOC: Hint to HN: Don’t give ideas to the evil genius co-Moderator. :P


Akaku (on AIM): (If people are flirting with you in RPG's again, I will note I now fully reserve the right to yell at them XP)
