Update

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in School, Writing, Life Jun 12 2016 · 103 views

I now am in possession of the most expensive piece of paper in the world: a United States college degree.

Go me.

Time to find a job and prepare for the crushing weight of debts.

Hopefully I can update Reborn soon; I have all the pieces for the next chapter here, they just need to be put on paper.

Reborn Guest Stars

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower, Writing May 01 2016 · 87 views

Apologies for the silence; college work and preparing for graduation have been sucking my motivation to write and do so stuff for a while.

Anyway, I managed to gather up the Guest Stars that signed up for recruitment and organized them into a loose command structure for the Matoran Militia. Thank you, everyone who signed up: not only does it mean I don't have to think of dozens of names for members of the group, it allowed me to flesh out the organization itself. :)

Anyway, for those of you who want to know how it looks, here's the command structure I created, and where your characters went on it. Apologies if some of your bios are a bit short right now; I'm hoping that once your characters appear in Reborn and I put your bios in the character sheet, I'll have extendeded them.

The Matoran Militia

Affiliated Toa

Toa of Psionics Rhonwen

Under the laws of the City, Rhonwen would be within her rights to act as the commander of the Militia, the same way her second-in-command Voriki commands the Wall. However, she believes that the Militia should be under the control of a Matoran, and has left command to Sindri. However, she still works closely with the organization, and is the first to respond when a squad calls for Toa aid.

Commander

Matoran of Stone Sindri
The Commander of the Militia for the past 877 years, his charge is the entire city of Aonui, with his captains overseeing the command of the 7 districts. He reports directly to the Administrator, Fallon; it is through this connection that he obtains prototype weapons for the Militia to test and eventually use. While stern, he knows when it is best to stand aside and let the Toa handle a situation, rather than risk the lives of those under his command.

Second-in-Command

Matoran of Lightning Taki

Sindri’s closest companion since before they joined the Militia, Taki is in charge of overseeing the training of raw recruits, and preparing them for active service. Her command is the 7th District, which houses civilians.

Captains

Matoran of Air Xirris
The strict Captain of the 2nd District, Xirris commands the safety of the City Center, where the Administrator and her fellows work to keep Aonui running smoothly. She also commands the elite Chronicler’s Company, a handpicked squadron that is in charge of security for high-value persons. While she drills her recruits harshly, she never pushes them past what they are capable of giving.

Matoran of Gravity Voltex
The Captain of the 5th District, Voltex is extremely dry with his subordinates and equals alike. He respects his superiors, but he takes his command of the intellectual district seriously.


Matoran of Psionics Azeran
The Captain of the 1st District, Azeran worked his way to his position, training under Captains Xirris and Taki to temper his natural fears and confusions into his ability to lead others. He has a strong rapport with the other captains, with rumors abounding about his relationship with the Matoran of Air.


Lieutenants

Matoran of Fire Halyx
A member of the Chronicler’s Company, Halyx was snatched up for Xirris’ command many years ago when he was on the verge of washing out of the Militia for his attitude. While the attitude isn’t gone, merely tempered, he is a reliable subordinate for Captain Xirris.

Matoran of Water Decaia
As a part of the 2nd District and a member of the Chronicler’s Company, Decaia is Captain Xirris’ lieutenant in the Company, and assistant when training new recruits to join the Company. His melancholy makes him less strict than his commander, but he is never to be doubted in a fight.

Matoran of Sound Lorika
Part of the 2nd District and the Chronicler’s Company, Lorika is the friendliest member of the Company, and often is the one who interacts with civilians when on the job. Aside from Xirris, she is the only member of the Company that interacts with any prisoners they might be assigned to guard.

Matoran of Plasma Jalicax
Part of the 5th District, Jalicax is Voltex’s lieutenant. While as dry as her Captain, she is a calming presence to those recruits placed under their command.

Matoran of the Green Kultela
Part of the 1st District, Kultela is Azeran’s lieutenant and right-hand Matoran. While she was a difficult recruit in training, she is a reliable member of the District Milita, and Azeran’s trusted partner in battle.


Recruits

Matoran of Ice Ghidora
A recruit from the destroyed village of Pareo, he was assigned to the 1st District after being cleared for active duty. While very competent, there are times where he slips and shows disturbing thoughts under his mask of sanity.

Matoran of Air Sumaka
A recruit from the destroyed village of Pareo, Sumaka is cheerful despite the hardships and misfortune she and her friends have faced. Assigned to the 1st District, she’s not all that keen on being partnered with Ghidora.

Matoran of Lightning Rekansi
A recruit from the destroyed village of Pareo, Rekansi has been assigned to the 5th District, under Voltex’s command. He’s still a bit quiet, despite his surroundings, but he’s determined to protect his new home.

Reborn: Now Recruiting!

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower, Writing Mar 18 2016 · 237 views
Guest Stars
I dunno how many people here read my stuff, but there's an organization in Reborn called the Matoran Militia, which acts as the police force for the city of Aonui.

While I have some characters set for it (mostly the leadership), I do need a few characters to help fill out the roster. That's where you come in.

I'm opening up slots for guest stars in my epic to act as the protectors of the City. Starting from the next chapter (Chapter 3), said guest stars will begin to appear and take part in the story.

To make sure I don't make promises I can't keep, I'm setting the max number of GS to the first 20 applicants for now; I might open this up again if I need more recruits.

Will I appear right away?

Some will. If you're not in Chapter 3, be patient and you'll appear in a later chapter.

How do I sign up?

Just fill out and post your character's profile below. Here's your template:

Name: (please try to have it appropriately Bionicle-ish)
Gender:
Element: (any of the existing tribes, aside from Light or Shadow)
Mask: (if its an original mask, describe what it's Great version would do)
Weapon: (all members have a sword, a shield, and a Kanoka launcher, but can use one personal weapon as well. No firearms)
Personality: (give a few personality traits so I can write them appropriately)

Do I have to be a Matoran?

Yes. There are only a few Toa in Aonui, and no Turaga. Members of the other races (ie. Vortixx, Steltians, Skakdi, etc.) join the Wall, who guard the city from attacks from the outside.

I'll be recruiting Guest Stars for the Wall in the future, so it you have a character that fits that bill, keep an eye out! :)

Reborn, Updated

So I finally found some time and willpower to write fanfiction again. I have now updated my fanfiction.

.... that's all, really.

Carry on.

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. :)

Spring Quarter's finished

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in BZPower, Writing, School, Video Games, Life Jun 09 2015 · 121 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?

Thanks, Everyone!

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing Apr 07 2015 · 214 views

Thanks to everyone who tossed ideas for location names at me! It'd be kinda awkward if I kept calling the main location in my upcoming Bionicle fanfic just 'the City' xD

For the record, here are the names I've settled on:
Fortress: Dorcha (my filler name, which I got attached to)
City: Aonui (my original placeholder, which I decided on against Dragon 11603's Clatis via coin toss)
Village: Pareo (submitted by Zox Tomana)

All being well, I'll start work on the story this quarter, and start posting it in late May-early June if it comes along well.

As a side note, I've put Wings on indefinite hiatus (if there's anyone that's wondering about it anymore). I can't make Chapter 15 work the way I want it to, and in any case apparently there are people not keen on how I've been writing it anyway. If I manage to finish Chapter 15 to my satisfaction at some point, I'll put it up, but its not my priority right now.

Thanks for reading. :)

Wanted: Location Name Ideas

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing Apr 04 2015 · 317 views
Brainstorming, Stumped, Help?
So I'm trying to set up a plan for a story I'm working on. I've hit a snag, though: I need names for a few locations, and I'm drawing blanks on ideas.

Here's what I need. I need a name for a city, a name for a village, and (possibly) a name for a fortress. I promise I will give you credit if I wind up using your ideas in the final product. :)

Commence the brainstorm!

So

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, BZPower Feb 17 2015 · 299 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.

Thoughts?

Stuff

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, Life Jul 31 2013 · 299 views

I say I'm back, and then I immediately drop back off the face of the site again for two weeks. Go me.
 
Anyway ...
 
-I'm working as an intern at my mom's workplace now, since I couldn't find a job within a certain time constraint. Aside from the not-getting-paid thing, its not too bad.
-Birthday went well. Not much else to say there.
-I've been playing tons of Skyrim lately, but I might get back into Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 eventually. Said Skyrim playing has actually given me and Jayson (aka Akaku) ideas for a webcomic, but we're mostly messing around with ideas at the time being.
-Speaking of Ak: he's on the west coast for a few weeks, and is currently staying with me and my family for a week before he heads back up to BC. I'll probably be heading up there for a weekend or so in a little while.
-Bought a remote-controlled snake-bot at a street fair my town had a few days ago. I'll have some fun with it in a little while. >=D
-Saw Pacific Rim last Monday with Jayson. I'll be buying it when it arrives on DVD.
-Writer's block slowly breaking down; mostly been playing with ideas for Wired, an original sci-fi/fantasy story, though, so no Wings just yet.

And now for something much more cheerful

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, BZPower Aug 31 2012 · 245 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

So Valentine's Day

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in World Wide Web, Writing Feb 14 2012 · 202 views

For the record, I did write a special ... I just didn't post it here.

Mostly because I'm not sure what the rules are about writing SSs about two members' Bionicle personas are when said members are in a relationship anymore. =/

Welcome

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.

Kothra: OMG! BAD INFERNA.

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?"

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. ><

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
