Thanks, Loganto! And I hope so too. In fact, it's incredibly likely if I'm going to go about my endgame of befriending every single Rahkshi! >:y
And Timageness, that's a tricky one. The slow spread was meant to be about several things about Xenia's character (who, along with Andrax, are pre-existing OCs of mine and hence have a wealth of lore to them): first, she's got a will stronger than iron and even at the best of times it'd be hard to mind control her. She's also mentally against a giant softie who isn't really wanting to control her. And, Matoran of Woomera train to become extremely resilient to elements through rigorous and gruelling training exercises, and I'm not sure how that applies to mask infection (Kororia does not have this training, to be clear. She is too young. Additional note: neither does Andrax, because he's too much of a weenie).
Nato has also informed me that the Rahkshi gets control of infected people, not the Makuta. To my credit, I was trying to do my research and I went by what BS01 said, and that differs from Corpus (understandably so). But, editing out the infection thing should fix that too. I can edit it, or be lazy because I am Too Proud of how it turned out and edit in something about how these parts are non-canon, since it's not regarding anything but myself and my own characters. Either way, I am very happy to not let it slide, or have it be an allergic reaction so I can be lazy about rewriting it.
As for the language barrier, funnily enough, I was originally going to have Kororia signing! But the first post mentioned Matoran learning the Rahkshi language, and I thought, what kind of small angry mother wouldn't learn her squishy baby's language? But if those Matoran learned it by gist and tone, instead of actual language, then that's fine and yeah just assume Kororia is signing for mercy while being attacked by a tiny albino bundle of fury. I can edit that in with the fix on the corruption part if you like, or do the same as before and say "this isn't canon but I nearly had to rewrite the whole thing already and I'm too lazy to do it again".
