Whoa, really amazing so far! The character interactions are great, and so is the plot. I'm a little curious why you spelled Macku and Hewkii with the Naming Day changes, though.

Thank you!

 

I know the official explanation for the changes was Naming Day, but they were still seen in the Metru-Nui arc, showing that the names had been completely retconned.  I figured I would just go with that.

Wow that practically felt like a canon story. Although, did the matoran already know the names of the Toa Mata?

I seem to recall they did, but I don't remember any sources off the top of my head.  Also, this story was drawing a little more from an outdated lore guide that said the Matoran knew their names, so I just sort of went with that.

Ok, I had to catch up on the early years so I was just wondering. I can see an argument for either choice anyway.
