BrickFair NJ and a New Epic

First and foremost, I'm beginning to post an epic I've been working on sporadically for the last few years. The prologue isn't that exciting, but I promise that it gets better! Reading Fighting to Survive here.   Secondly, I just learned that Brickfair will be in NJ, while I'm here in Philadelphia, so I'm hoping to be able to make it on Saturday.

Back maybe?

It seems that roughly once a year I feel an urge to poke my nose back in here. This time I think I might actually stay this time, albeit on a somewhat inactive level.   How is life for those friends of mine still around here?   These last to years have been quite a change for me, I think. I went through my old blog entries (and by old I mean the first two pages because I didn't want to look back any further), and I'm a little surprised with how much of a tactless, immature person I was back in

Hi?

How is everyone these days? I felt like appearing out of my long disappearance briefly.

To add something of a controversial nature

Well, it seems that there's a controversy going on. I, despite my urge to remain an utter lurker, feel the urge to add to the controversy.   First let me preface this: I really don't hate the people who disagree with me, at all.   I respect your right to hold a certain view.   But you're wrong.   I'm sorry if you feel differently, but there's no discussion.   The Lone Ranger is actually a very good movie.   Seriously, I saw it a week or two ago, and as someone who never really liked the original

Trapped...

In a Map! Seriously guys, that RG is epic and should have won a long time ago. I heartily recommend playing it.

5000 posts!

Well, 5,001 now. I figure this is pretty much my highest goal. Even if I do a ton of RPing, it'll take me a good eight years to reach 10K.   I really should put up a 5K special...

GELU

Come on guys, you know you want to read an awesome story about the most awesome Glatorian ever made.   The Shadow proves the Sunshine has been posted in its revamped form in Short Stories. It's been too long since I posted anything here...

My dear computer

I hate you.   In other news, I have now served at a wedding: it was actually easier than Sunday mass.

It is official

Anyways, I'm backish.   But yes, it's official as of... Perhaps two weeks ago? I've been accepted as a seminarian for my diocese! I also got to go to my first ordination mass which was very interesting: it has to be the best mass I've been to in a while.   On the not so happy news, my dad had a heart attack just before that, so things have been pretty hectic for me. He's recovering, but things are still, as said, hectic.   So... Aside from crazy hackers, what's new with BZPower?

Six days late

But I finally made my usual seasonal avatar change. St. Nicholas ftw!   Bishop of Digne will have to wait.

So guys

I think we should come up with a topic not related to sexism, racism, homophobia, religion, politics, or other such things, and start a blog war over it.   Wait. We already had this with Bring Back Bionicle.   I guess that just means we need more ideas. Any ideas?

*sigh*

So, I want to make a picture of Colm as the bishop of Digne my avatar. On the other hand, I'm not sure if it's too religious for BZP (Roman collar + pectoral cross)....   So torn.

name change help

So I finally decided to do a Les Mis name change. I first thought of Marius, switched momentarily to Enjolras, and finally decided on the bishop. But now:   1: Bishop Myriel. 2: Monseigneur Bienvenu 3: The Bishop of Digne   I'm torn between these.

A happy feast of St. Nicholas

I can't believe I didn't learn of the story of him punching Arius until yesterday. I will never, ever, ever, be able to think of St. Nick in the same way again...

I'm doing it, guys

I'm actually writing a non Lego non short story that isn't too religious to be posted on BZPower!   On that note, I'd just like to point out the COT Library initiative. As a writer who does a mixture of COT and Bionicle works, I'd very much support this to happen. So head over, cast your vote and give your opinion; if you don't support it, I suggest this idea, which Electric Turahk put so well:   ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This is the idea I actually

Goodbye

Well, I think it's time to take another BZP break. See everyone in a few weeks.

Zarayna's Review Exchange

Hello everyone. All writers, myself included, enjoy reviews. So now, I'm proposing an offer to anyone who cares: You give me a short story, epic chapter/short epic (for now) to review, or if you do not have that and still wish to participate, I will attempt to review other artwork you should list, be it drawing or MOCing. In exchange, you review one of the stories I list below. I can't promise that my reviews will be SSCC length, but I will make them a minimum of 100 words; in return I request t

So sad

Remembering this blooming thing I made: The first annual SS awards. It was running nicely, then the downtime came and killed it. And it never rose again.   I really feel like reviving it, only I'm not sure how much interest there will be.

One Day More.

My favorite version of it is in Polish, and there's no English translation. ;.;

War Zone

So, a lot of you probably remember War Zone.   Well, coming this December, I present,   BZPOWER (POWERED BY INVISION POWER BOARDS)   In short 'War Zone 2'. It will have a very similar theme of disorder, but the backstory will be much different, and it will be a lot less sandbox. No, players cannot control a forum, seeing as about half will be anarchist wastelands and the rest will be already controlled by the remains of the staff.   Anyone interested in this? I'm looking for people willin

Concrete Angel.

So a friend posted the lyrics of the aforementioned song online, and I got a nostalgia blast: specifically because it reminded me of a hauntingly amazing story I had read years ago: Tahu's Concrete Angel, by Saya. And now I don't have to warn of an archive link! It's really good to see improvements like this happening.   But that aside, that story is epic. Just saying.
