Good morning/afternoon friends! This is really just an idea I had after looking at the TV Tropes page for "Mary Sue" and reading several renowned terrible fanfics. I must say, it felt good to write this.
Spherus Magna, the new home of all life from the worlds of Bara Magna, Aqua Magna and Bota Magna, was in an era of peace. Mata Nui’s actions and words had not been forgotten, and the prototype robot used to defeat Makuta Teridax had become a monument to the Great Spirit, and all the heroes who fought so hard for the peace to finally be achieved. Turaga Vakama stood with Raanu at the
foot of the fallen titan.
[color=#ff0000;]“May we never forget the great sacrifices we made for this paradise.”[/color] Vakama mused, gazing over the colossal form. [color=#ff0000;]“May we never be troubled by the evils of Makuta again.”[/color]
[color=#ff0000;]“Indeed.”[/color] Raanu nodded. [color=#ff0000;]“I’m just glad nothing has gone wrong since that fateful day.”[/color]
[color=#ff0000;]“Be careful.”[/color] The elderly Turaga warned. [color=#ff0000;]“You will jinx us all if you say that.”[/color]
[color=#ff0000;]“Don’t tell me you believe in that superstitious…”[/color] Raanu’s retort was drowned out by a loud cry. An Agori was running across the plains as giant Rahkshi stomped after it, making that eerie shrill noise that made many a Matoran shiver in fear.
[color=#ff0000;]“Mata Nui…”[/color] Vakama gazed at the giant Rahkshi. [color=#ff0000;]“They must be a leftover experiment of Teridax! Raanu, run! Fetch the Toa!”[/color]
[color=#ff0000;]“But you’ll be defenceless!”[/color] The Agori leader cried.
[color=#ff0000;]“Don’t worry about me!”[/color] Vakama protested.
[color=#ff0000;]“With all due respect, Turaga, you’re old and not in the best shape!”[/color] Raanu grabbed the Turaga’s hand and led him away from the robot, the shrieks of the Rahkshi behind them.
Raanu turned briefly to see the great beasts advancing on them. They leered down at him with piercing red eyes, their hisses something he had only heard in his nightmares. One of them raised a gigantic staff, intending to strike down the Agori.
Then, suddenly, it fell to the ground, a giant glowing gash across its middle. The other Rahkshi looked around, their eyes scouring the plains for an apparent assailant. A sudden flash of golden light caused another Rahkshi to fall to the ground, a similar gash on its middle. A sudden battle cry made the last Rahkshi look up to the sun. A blur of movement appeared for a split second, then the final Rahkshi titan fell to the ground. Dust billowed up and obscured Raanu and Vakama’s view for a second.
The dust cleared, and Raanu shook his head. He had kept a tight hold on the Turaga’s arm the whole time. [color=#ff0000;]“Are you alright, Vakama?”[/color] he asked, with concern heavy in his voice.
Vakama knocked his staff against the side of his mask a few times, and sand fell out. [color=#ff0000;]“Sand in the mask is not nice. It gets everywhere and it’s really itchy.”[/color]
[color=#ffa500;]“Are you alright?”[/color] A new voice asked. It seemed to belong to a female. Perhaps one of the female Toa that inhabited the Matoran Universe before it was destroyed, or maybe a Glatorian, Raanu thought. The figure that spoke emerged from the dust cloud, and Raanu’s eyes widened in surprise. It was, indeed, a female Toa, with a very slender, almost beautiful frame. She was covered in bright pink armour seen on both Toa and Glatorian. In her hand, she held a golden sword that was almost as tall as she was. On her face, much to the absolute astonishment of Raanu, and the horror of Vakama, was the Mask of Time itself. Not only that, it seemed to be fused with…
[color=#ff0000;]“The Mask of Life!”[/color] Vakama said, astonished. [color=#ff0000;]“What manner of Toa are you?”[/color]
[color=#ffa500;]“I’m Toa Nasarhehiel Moonflower Sparkledust.”[/color] The Toa bowed in greeting. [color=#ffa500;]“It’s an honour to meet you.”[/color]
Vakama was wise enough not to try and pronounce the Toa’s name. Nevertheless, he felt a strange sensation inside his head, as if the very air itself was intoxicating. What he said next, surprised even him.
[color=#ff0000;]“The honour is all mine, Toa. Come, we must return to the Valley of the Maze, so you can meet the rest of the Toa.”[/color]
[color=#ff0000;]“Um, Vakama, are you feeling alright?”[/color] Raanu asked, as their new Toa friend followed them.
[color=#ff0000;]“I…”[/color] Vakama didn’t know what to say. It was as if someone was whispering in his ear, telling him what to say. [color=#ff0000;]“…we must be careful, my friend. She bears two powerful Kanohi masks, and she is able to defeat Rahkshi of that size. I dread to think what she may do if she turns against us. We must ask her how she came to acquire those masks.”[/color]
Soon, they arrived at the Valley of the Maze, and entered the tower at the centre. Inside, the Toa of the Matoran Universe and the Turaga who had made the tower their headquarters were discussing matters relating to the search for the Great Beings. When Raanu and Vakama entered, Many Toa sprang to their feet in concern.
[color=#ff0000;]“I’ll be alright.”[/color] Vakama said, allowing the Toa to relax. [color=#ff0000;]“Were it not for the actions of this brave Toa, Raanu and I would have fallen victim to a powerful foe.”[/color]
[color=#ff0000;]“What foe? And who is this?”[/color] Jaller gazed apprehensively at the female Toa standing behind them.
[color=#ffa500;]“Nice to meet you! I’m Toa Nasarhehiel Moonflower Sparkledust!”[/color] Toa Sparkledust winked at Jaller. Jaller was wise enough not to attempt to pronounce her name for himself.
“It cannot be.” An unfamiliar voice made everyone jump. Turaga Nuju stood up and inched over to the new Toa’s side. A shiver ran through the room. No-one had heard Nuju speak in the regular Matoran tongue for quite some time. Only Kopaka seemed unperturbed by it.
[color=#0000ff;]“Nuju, why do you speak now, of all times?”[/color] Nokama asked gently.
“I did not expect to see this Toa so soon.” Nuju said. “This is Nasarhehiel Moonflower Sparkledust. She is….my daughter.”
A collective gasp rose from the Toa and Turaga, followed by collective saying of “huh?”
“Turaga? I don’t think life is created in that manner.” Nuparu piped up.
“Be silent.” Nuju immediately shushed the Toa of Light into silence. “She is my daughter, and also…the chosen one!”
[color=#ffa500;]“I’m also from the future.”[/color] Sparkledust giggled.
Takanuva and the rest of the gathered Toa just stared.
[color=#8b4513;]“I think I need to lie down.”[/color] Pohatu said, with agreement from almost all the Toa. Slowly, they left the room, until only Nuju and Takanuva remained.
[color=#ffa500;]“It’s good to see you, father.”[/color] Sparkledust knelt down and gave the Turaga a hug.
“It is.” Nuju agreed. “Did you succeed in your…you have something to say, Takanuva?”
[color=#ffa500;]“I, um…”[/color] Takanuva turned bright red without ever having to use his light powers. [color=#ffa500;]“I…I just think that you are more beautiful than the island of Mata Nui, Toa Sparkledust!”[/color]
Toa Sparkledust blushed too just as the Toa of Light turned to leave. For a second, he stumbled and shook his head as if confused, then he straightened himself and walked out.
