I bear disappointing news.

The [list of names] disappeared when I moved my office in my house and I don't know where it is.The odds of finding one piece of paper in the mountain of boxes that constitutes my new office right now is extremely remote, and with all the work I have to do, I don't have time to go searching.And to be honest, the good names on it have been used. What was left was the names I really didn't like much.

I have asked Greg if perhaps Legal has a copy. Unfortunately, he doubts they do. He also doesn't believe they have time to find it.The only other solution I have thought about was reassigning the name that was given to The Shadowed One, since Greg has no intention of sharing the name with us because of the backlash he received for naming the Makuta of Metru Nui. To no one's surprise, Greg doesn't remember the name so we'll have to wait until he does. Don't hold your breath.As a result of this loss, Greg cannot assign a name to the Golden Fusion.-------What was that green cloud that plunged into the Energized Protodermis tank to form the Golden Fusion being?
Spoiler
Despite the bad news, he's still willing to answer questions we have for him. So go ahead and drop of a question or two here as I will be chatting with him very soon.

As a result of this loss, Greg cannot assign a name to the Golden Fusion.

But couldn't he assign something more similar to "The Shadowed One", or many other DH code names, that would be more attractive than merely "Golden Fusion" or fan nicknames like Goldiflocks?Not really sure I WANT one, it's nice to have a guy who's so mysterious we don't know what to call him, but still. It could be like "Man in Black" with LOST; he has an official nickname but not a name name. And the fan names, even just Golden Fusion don't IMO sound very mysterious. Something more poetic and official sounding might actually improve the feel of the character. (For example, it could be something that one of the Toa Nuva might decide to nickname it, and that nickname might catch on with the populace.)

I think part of the reason why he only had one paper copy is the possible chance of spoilers coming from an electronic file, like what has happened with other stories and games.

The names thing doesn't bother me too much, because: 1) Greg may find it someday, and2) He doesn't seem to need new names to write much of this anyway. But this is coming from a person who the loss, should it be about my own writing, would leave me positively unglued and send me searching through the boxes until I found it, so yeah.

Can't say I'm entirely surprised, but I'm happy to finally have my suspicions confirmed. I'm not sure how to feel about all of these little tidbits of revelations being released slowly. I love getting the answers to so many questions, but I'm slowly continuing to lose hope, at the same time, that Greg will ever continue the story. I really do hope that the list pops up at some point when he's going through his stuff so we may be able to get a name for the Golden Fusion.- :t::l::h:

Well, I'm honestly not sure what to make of this. I'm torn between favoritism and idealism. Zaktan was always my favorite villain after he trumped the Irnakk projection on the 777 stairs, but I sure wish someone would stay dead. The Red Star thing didn't faze me too much at first, but with Zaktan cheating death even in his pit-mutant form... I'm starting to get a little irked. But if his mind is in control of the fusion... I'm so glad he's back! But it goes against my ideals, but I like him, but my ideals, but he's back, but...See what I mean? I'm totally torn!
