you know your a bionic fan when...

Recommended Posts

 

In response to the question... When you have Bionicles all over the place.

When you know "Bionicles" is not the proper plural form of BIONICLE sets/characters.

 

 

Is that for real? Source?

I've just tried finding where this concept was comprehensively outlined, but I can't seem to track it down. It was an official topic or blog post or something. Basically, "Bionicle" is a portmanteau for "Biological Chronicle," so it refers to a type of story, not a type of being. Therefore, phrases like "bionicles," "a bionicle," etc., are grammatically incorrect. The original source I can't find compared it to calling Luke Skywalker a Star War. It jumps right out to Grammar Nazis like me.

You know you're a Bionicle fan when you can't afford dinner but you can afford $300 of sets.

 

Let's see here... I've got a bit of disposable income for the time being... what do I spend it on?

You know you're a Bionicle fan when you compare every story to either the your religious holy book or Bionicle first, or when you remember every year for the first decade of the century in affiliation to Bionicle sets.

 

"The Anti-Terror Coalition invaded Afghanistan in 2001 in retaliation of--"

"2001? Oh yeah, that's when Bionicle first came out!"

" :annoyed: "

 

 

I do this all the time.

when you emerge from a stasis tube onto a tropical beach, reconstruct yourself from scattered parts, don your golden mask of power, and go off to destroy the evils of Makuta and save the world!

 

no? just me?

(Stasis tubes and Toa canisters are not the same thing.)

cried when you read Tahu's final line in issue 7 of the last comic saga (probably because of disappointment)

They only listen to their false idols and these so called 'geniuses' who claim to have a more complex understanding of life, rather than a man who offers nothing but a chance for amelioration. Everyone's too distracted by the concept of 'freedom' that they forgot what the true purpose of life is.

When you prefer the original BIONICLE trilogy over the original Star Wars trilogy.

 

When you try to figure out which Kanohi your favorite fictional characters would wear.

 

When you wish you could find your (possibly bad) drawings of yourself as a Toa from when you were a kid.

 

When you still play the BIONICLE GameCube/PS2 game even though you know it sucks.

 

When you listened to All-American Rejects just because they were in a promotion from 2006 (speaking of which, did we ever Save the Band?).

 

When you have the Piraka Rap memorized.

 

When you use the Piraka Rap in place of "Never Gonna Give You Up."

 

When you type out a long response to a forum post on BZP about when you know you're a BIONICLE fan.

When, A) You defend Bionicle from the haters.

B) You're a member of BZPower

C) You sometimes hum/whistle Nathan Furst's soundtrack from the films to yourself.

D) When you're insanely awesome and only a few thousand people know (and you're not Superman)

are you kidding? i know i'm a bionic fan because my arms can turn into guns and i have an x-ray eye!

 

Can't argue with that, to be honest.

 

Also, I know I'm a BIONICLE fan when I can somehow link fog to mystery and link that to 2001-2003. I'm a weird little man.

When you cross it over wth varying themes and things throughout the years. (i.e BIONICLE x Star Wars, BIONICLE x UNDERTALE (that one's my favorite), BIONICLE x HF, BIONICLE x Chima, ect.)

 

And when you do multiple crossovers with BIONICLE (i.e BIONICLE x XCOM x UNDERTALE x Star Wars x Star Trek x LotR x D&D x BIONICLE G2 x Transformers x Power Rangers x Nintendo v.s The Abominations on DeviantART.)

 

EDIT:

 

(And you know what? Lets just add starbound, Terraria, TF2, and Game of Thrones just for the heck of it!)

I'd probably read that.

You don't just read it, you play it, you live it, you experience it. (Also, music supplied by all the folk who made the music for BIONICLE, Toby Fox, the people who made the music for everything else, pink floyd, two steps from , and dragonforce in a massive collaboration of planet pushing power. RAD!)

I actually fell asleep midway through dinner a few nights ago, and I dreamt I was fighting the Skull Villains with Tahu's swords, except I was normal 5'4 me height and Skull Slicer and Warrior were a good 7-8 feet tall. So yeah, that. But it was insanely cool, it was as if I was actually a Ta-Okotan, which was awesome.

You know you're a bionicle fan when you spend an entire day on BZPower.

 

And don't even stop for meals.

 

Or to use the bathroom.

 

Or to change out of your pajamas.
