Bit 1: "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

Incommodo pushed up off the ground, hovering in midair, before putting his legs on the ground in order to stand up.

*Incogali

Bit 3: YES ARKRAK GO ARKRAK

Bit 4:

*state

Serious Arkrak is serious now. Which means he's evolving from butt monkey to competent butt monkey.

After all the shipping, I'm surprised Arkrak wasn't more reluctant to go, or more phased by Nikarra's death. Nikarra's a bit of a beast, here, too.

 

“Now, do as I said: run, Incommodo. Run for your life.”

Seems legit.

 

I don't understand what this whole 'audible click' thing is about. Was it the pieces of the puzzle in his head clicking together or some metaphorical physics-trolling like that?

 

Kanohi Ruru: The Great Mask of Default Camera Flash. I never thought I'd see the day when Arkrak is the more sensible one. And... What...? That was the entire army destroyed right there? No epic battle scene? That... Really hurts. It took me a moment to realise in the next section that that was the entire army destroyed right there in like, three sentences. Seriously, man. Almost as bad as the Marendar fight.

 

Thankfully, the closing of the loop redeems this chapter, and then some. Speaking of closing loops, Reichenbach's death reminded me a lot of the movie Looper, in the bit where the guy loses parts of his body as they get cut off in the past and such. And-

 

Pirok. Pirok. PIROK. PIROOOOOOOKKKKKKKK! :happydance: :happydance:

... AMAZING...

 

NIKARRA! NOOOOOOO!!!!!! Ah, well. We kinda saw this coming from the LAST chapter.

 

Is it odd that the entire time I was reading those final paragraphs, I had 'Last of the Time Lords' playing in my head?

 

Also, I get that Reichenbach is a traitor, but... You cruel, cruel paradox-eater! Joking aside, I LOVED Nekron's implementation of karma once 'The Storm' began!

 

WHOOOO!!! Pirok! oh yeah, Proditor too. yay...

 

Looking forward to April (and in the meantime I have Marked and Survivor to look forward to)!

 

Signing off!

Hey, I like Proditor. In fact, I feel a little sorry that he has to live in the shadow of the living beauty that is Pirok because that guy is just so amazingly awesome he just dominates everything ever and what was I talking about again.

Aaaannd we're back, folks! Time for Season 2.

 

So, Dystopia.

 

Bit 1: I'm liking this return to the decimated wasteland of Aftershock. That whole short story makes a lot more sense now, in the same way that Whispers did back when Part II of Dark Mirror came out. 

I don't really understand why Aerus pushed the fire fellow out of the way so he could take the glory of breaking the lock for himself, or if it even had any significance.

Bit 2: I don't know what it is with this epic, tendrils of shadow and sickening cracks, but it's looking to be a bit of a theme.

Bit 3: Although it took some explaining at first, this image of Toa as machines is actually pretty awesome, and I wouldn't have thought of it otherwise.

Bit 4: lol where did proditor get shadow powers i don't even

Let me guess: BEFORE TIME BEGAN, THERE WAS... THE CUBE

Also Krahl yey

 

So yeah, brilliant chapter, despite its frankly criminal shortness. Nice to finally see this epic back at the top, and to know it hadn't died or anything after all this time.

 

Also, massive congrats to Scratch for that banner, that is one fine job right there.

While I'm here I'd like to shamelessly advertise my own epic, set 6 months prior to the events of Shadows, and featuring an entirely different cast. But one plot element remains: The story is still About Time.

EXCELLENT! Its nice to finally see this epic get its (long-overdue) continuation!

 

Yikes. That poor Bone Hunter...

 

YAY! PIROK! ...And Proditor... Yay...

 

Well... Wasn't expecting Krahl to become a Gollum-like character quite yet, but I'm liking where its headed so far!

 

Thanks for the compliment Wotz! My banners are normally some of my best work! (I've designed quite a few for this series of epics, ya know!)

 

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Its not that we don't like Proditor. Its just that he doesn't get any truly awesome scenes before you suddenly kill him off! Pirok's gotten... what, 4 now?
