Welcome to the review topic for my epic!
This is the first epic I have ever written, and if I am going to be honest with myself, will probably be my last. This is a project that I have been working on for quite a number of years now, and while the story in its entirety has been written, I find myself re-writing character arcs/plots/other major aspects before I post them in order to better fit my current writing style and vision. When I originally started posting, the goal was to put up a new chapter every week, but as I have quickly learned, writing is hard, man. Life really likes to get in the way, and my posting frequently becomes infrequent. So in terms of updates, I can say I'll post as soon as a new chapter is ready, but as for how frequent that is... uh...well, I'll post as soon as a new chapter is ready.
But don't be afraid yell at me and tell me to get my butt in gear. I only aim to please.
As for the story itself, there are a few things that I would like to point out. I have taken some artistic liberties with the Bionicle canon, but not so much that it feels off-putting (I hope). The story takes place on the island of Mata Nui, many years after the Mask of Light saga, and will stay true to the common beliefs of that time (Mata Nui is a great spirit, not a giant robot, Makuta is his brother, not a cloud of antidermis). Also, I've written Matoran to seem a bit more human (and thus, I think, more relatable), and while some familiar faces will be present, most of the main roles will be filled with characters of my own design.
In short, this story will follow a group of Matoran as they travel across the land, on a quest to...save the world? Something like that. There's bad guys, good guys, monsters, explosions, battles, adventure, and more stuff I hope you will find, at the very least, interesting.
As with any epic, feedback is always welcome, so let me know what you think! You can find the story here, and I do hope you enjoy it.
