Have you ever seen those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books? Instead of being a linear read, each chapter ends by giving giving you options. Thus, instead of one storyline, you have a book that can take you on a dozen different journeys.

 

That's what this story is supposed to be. You start off in the same place, but at the end of each chapter, you get to choose which path you'll take, and then see where the story leads you. There are over a dozen different endings, and a full 26 chapters to read through. And you are the main character.

 

I originally started on this story back in December 2009, just after it was announced that Bionicle was ending. I asked for members to submit character Bios for themselves, and many did, and I have included all of them in this story. (Some have larger roles than others, of course).

 

And a disclaimer: The characters in this story are named after real members, but their personalities and traits are fictional and are not meant to reflect on my opinions of the actual members. So if I made a character out to be evil or dull witted, I do not intent to label the actual member as such. (But seriously, it wouldn't be a good story if everybody was nice and friendly)

 

The story is set in late 2009, just after the announcement of the ending of Bionicle. Although it has taken me over a year to actually finish this story, it does not reference anything we did not already know back then. The member names are the ones that were submitted to me back then; some of the members have undoubtedly changed their names since then, so I hope there is not too much confusion as to who is who.

 

The chapters are short; most of them are less than a page on MS Word, so it won't be too lengthy to read. I have provided links connecting all the chapters, so you can follow them to continue on with your story. And in case you reach an undesirable ending (yes, there are some) you can always find links leading you back to the previous chapters.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here. If you spot any errors, in links or spelling (no doubt there are some I overlooked) feel free to point them out to me. And you can review the story either here, when you reach one of the endings, or in any individual chapter. And I would greatly appreciate any reviews you'd be willing to type up.

 

Here's the cast list (in order of importance, and then alphabetically):

  • You
  • Sumiki
  • Blue Dragon (Abbreviated as Blue in the story)
  • Little Miss Krahka (Abbreviated as Krahka in the story)
  • Arpy
  • BCII
  • Brickthing
  • Eeko
  • Emporer Whenua (Abbreviated as EW in the story)
  • Kakaru
  • Kumata Nuva
  • Letagi
  • Nukaya
  • The Power that Is
  • Taka-Tahu Nuva (Abbreviated as TTN in the story)
  • Xccj

Now, continue to Chapter A to begin, and I do hope you enjoy the story.

Awesome story, I just finished reading all of it. :) Strangely, my first choice of paths lead me to torturing myself...

 

The story was well structured with multiple intertwining paths and plenty of death paths. My only complaint is that the two main plots (Greg/Bink) weren't consistent with each other - the player's choices should only influence facts related to their actions, not remove entire conspiracies because they followed someone else. :P

I must echo the sentiment that it does feel quite strange to be interacting with yourself. I must traveled in time by going very fast and/or around or through a wormhole.

 

That or this takes place in a mirror universe.

 

Or I've been cloned.

 

Or I have a serious case of split personality.

Heh, this was pretty awesome, man! The "Choose your own adventure" thing reminded me of some of the Goosebumps books from the 90s, lol

 

Just finished reading all of the chapters. I liked the Bink path a bit better, but both were pretty cool. The fact that each chapter is short really helps the flow of the story (probably wouldn't have read it all otherwise). There were a few typos here and there, but otherwise the writing was very good as well.

 

But you can definitely tell the early chapters were written in 2009... "We’ve worked up an ending with the Stars Sets" xP

I'd rather not be stared at, I'm ugly. ;_;

 

It's true, the main picture is staring me. :fear: I was hoping it would be starring me . . .

 

~B~

 

Okay, I get it, I misspelled a word in the picture. Go figure it's the only thing I can't easily edit. >.<

 

I have been cloned without my knowledge! And I've not received one penny of royalty fees! The cads!

 

I'm pretty sure you submitted your name way back in 09, so your charges are thus nulled out. :P

You aren't the clone; the other Sumiki is. :P

I tried to organize this in the same way as some of the older books did. Thus, who you speak with in the begining affects which story path you take. Some of the books would have one storyline solving a murder mystery, but then another path would be a completely unrelated journey involving spirits and magic. Besides, I wanted a larger cast of villians, so I had to split it up a bit. But yeah, I suppose I could've made them more related to each other...

Heh, yeah, I planned everything out in 2009, and wrote the Greg path back then too, but I procrastinated with the Bink path and wrote bits of it this last year.

 

Thanks everybody for replying!
