To laugh or not to laugh, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The Memes and Gags of outrageous comedies
Or to take arms against the sea of clichés ...
Nononono not Hamlet! I don't want no Hamlet in my?!! ....
Alas, poor Hubert, I knew him well, Comedians; a fellow of finite jest, of most fabulous fancy; he hath written for me a million times; and now, how despised in my lacking imagination it is! My face is palmed at it. Here hung the nose that I have punched I know not how oft. Where be your snarks now? Your groaning? Your terrible rapping skill? Your flashes of annoyance, that were wont to set the table on a crusade for your death?
Ahem, anyway, as you may already know, I am the Ordinary Magician, but I also go by the name of Hubert. You may recall that it had been stated that today was the day when It's a Gundam! would be presenting his comedy, but I recently changed my name, so you will be seeing me instead. Along with a slight increase in the propensity to shoot lasers.
So, after a year of not writing any comedies whatsoever, with my only involvement here being one of the slightly more active Critics of the Comedies Critics Club (You should really request more criticism from us! We need more business!), I have decided to actually try writing another comedy.
To the surprise of many, it will not occur in the shared universe which most of my comedies are part of, not including the original 'BIONICLE: Sheer Awesomeness!'. This time, I wish to free myself from the baggage that comes with writing for that shared universe, which usually prompts me to add Zaphos and throw out overused memes that make absolutely no sense.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, I am reducing meme content by seventy percent.
Of course, all of you may be interested in what exactly I am trying to write, so let me explain. After stealing some of Lielac's bio-mechanical plot bunnies, I have come up with the genius idea of writing a Slice of Life story focusing on the minor Matoran that have only appeared in MNOG and MNOG2, and possibly in the CD-thingamabobs, because they need more love. However, I will not be setting such a story on Mata Nui, but on Metru Nui.
Because Metru Nui is perfect for Slice of Life.
Now then, I would not be able to leave you if I didn't let you all see a short snippet previewing the first chapter of my upcoming comedy.

Dr. Amaya: Or How I Learnt To Stop Worrying And Love Kanoka Disks
The hard thing about being a teacher, thought Amaya as she looked around her empty classroom, was that the students were too obedient. Sure, she enjoyed the peace and quiet along with the simplicity of teaching them, but she yearned for at least one of her students to follow the rules less rigidly and do something that could make her class less monotonous. It was incredibly boring teaching her class, and although they made her quest for the position of Exemplary Teacher much, much easier, there was no fun in teaching without any challenge.
Oh how she wished to be in her colleague's situation; Nokama's class was passionate enough about studying, but were energetic and restless as well, disobeying their teacher at times. Although as she continued to think about her friend's class, she remembered Vhisola, Nokama's incredibly clingy and possessive student. She shuddered at the thought of having the other Ga-Matoran as a student; there was no way she could survive with such a person following her everywhere and nosing into her private life.
"I should be going to the Labs instead of moping around here," she sighed, packing up her things.
Of course, that had been her plan until a certain Ta-Matoran student (a rather surprising thing, seeing that very rarely did those of Ta-Metru ever become students) of hers had decided to come in and interrupt what would have been an incredibly boring day.
"Hey there Amaya!" said Tiribomba cheerfully. "I have an awesome idea!"
The teacher sighed as she turned to face her student. Tiribomba had a good heart, but his ideas were not very logical or good. At all. She shuddered as she remembered his last idea. She still hadn't managed to get the smell of Great Temple Squid out of her mask.
"I'm not interested," replied Amaya, heading towards the door of her classroom. "I don't want another repeat of last time."
"That wasn't my fault! How was I supposed to know that Great Temple Squids could do that?" he protested.
"Nevertheless, it was your idea that lead to it."
"Come on, at least hear me out this one time?"
Amaya hesitated at the sight of Tiribomba's irresistible Hapaka-puppy expression. It had been said that he could tame even the Kanohi Dragon with such a face, and she did not argue with whoever had thought up the saying. Although it may have been illogical, using Tiribomba's face on the Kanohi Dragon was an untested approach, so it could be possible.
"Fine," she sighed. "What is it?"
Tiribomba grinned. "We ... are going to find the super magical Kanoka Disks of Destiny!"
Well then, ladies and gentlemen. Dr. Amaya: Or How I Learnt To Stop Worrying And Love Kanoka Disks will be coming to the Comedies forum around Christmas, so make sure to keep an eye out for it! I apologise for the shortness, but I wouldn't want to spoil you guys too much wouldn't I?
So have fun reading it when it comes out!
