The list of Gaardus lookalikes had me cracking up. Were you by any chance imagining Arnold Schwarzenegger for Axonn's voice? 'Cause it totally makes sense. Also funny how we see Velika so briefly at the end, even though he's been the real murderer all along.
I like the shift to focus on Miserix and his downfall, since I always found that a cool part of the story. Being a Joker wannabe probably doesn't make the guy too popular among his fellow Makuta. And you know, Bitil makes a pretty good Eeyore. I guess it works, since he never had much going for him in the story.
Looking forward to more of these unsolved mysteries...
Yeah, I was kind of going off of other members' reactions to Spiriah and Trinuma from the old forums. Like how one of them asked "Where's Spiriah? Is he behind that jumble of pieces?" was inspiration for both this and for Spiriah in general. And yes, speaking of the old forums, Axonn was always Swartzenegger, everything he said and did was mostly based off him.
I kind of wished they delved into that a little more, I thought it was a cool story point and I wished they'd expanded on it more, but alas it did not happen. And that's just how I make them, Miserix is a Joker wannabe and Bitil is depressed all the time. The downside of 2008 was the lack of character depth for the Makuta, they could have had such potential, but oh well. I'll do the character expanding here.
Well, here's another one then. This one I have been looking forward to writing for the longest time. As such, I think this one is now the longest one at this point in time.
Hydraxon: She vanished mysteriously in the coldest night anyone could remember without a trace. But was this really the last anyone would see of Toa Tuyet, or could she still have been out there? Tonight we continue looking into the case of the sadistic murderer known as Toa Tuyet. I’m your host Hydraxon and I hate shellfish. Join me, and you might be able to help me solve a mystery.
[color=#282828;]*insert “Bionicle: Unsolved Mysteries” title sequence.*[/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: Upon her apprehension, Toa Tuyet was imprisoned in the Coliseum of Metru Nui to await further trail. However, she was mysteriously spirited away by the being known as Botar to a prison where only the worst of the worst dwelled. I should know as I also serve as its jailer. However, very few knew exactly what happened to her and it remained a mystery to everyone.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Lhikan, voted world’s best hero everLhikan: There was absolutely no chance of redemption for her. I eagerly awaited her fate. I was shocked when I was told she was gone and there was nothing but a bunch of CDs from some Britney Spears character left.Nidhiki, REALLY hates creepy crawliesNidhiki: Honestly I don’t get why people hate on Britney Spears. Between you and me, I personally like her music and think she’s kinda cute… wait, this going on live isn’t it?? Stop filming me!![/color]
[color=#282828;]Naho, shy little bookworm[/color]
[color=#282828;]Naho: Tuyet was always kind of pushy and mean at times. I actually question how she became a Toa. She didn’t really care about the Matoran, nor did she really do her job with enthusiasm as Lhikan and I did. [/color]
[color=#282828;]Naho: Um, hello? Tuyet?[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet: What is it, sugar?[/color]
[color=#282828;]Naho: The Vahki have reported a disturbance in the lower sector. I think we ought to scurry on over there.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet: Look, hun, I think you can handle it on your own just fine.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Naho: But, well, that’s not what I mean.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet, giggles: Stop worring so much there, darlin’ or else you’re gonna make yourself more tighter than a porcupine.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Naho: It also made me uncomfortable whenever she referred to me as “sugar” or “darling” or anything of the sort, as if she was indicating we were close friends. Honestly, we were never that close. If anything, I wished I could get as far away from her as possible. [/color]
[color=#282828;]Nidhiki, lover of Britney Spears[/color]
[color=#282828;]Nidhiki: Hey, don’t think I'm not aware of what you’re saying right now! Quit fooling around! As for Tuyet… I don’t know if she liked me or not for sure. I mean, she would always back me into a corner and look at me with a sly look in her eyes. She would also sometimes say things like, “Sugar, someday I’m gonna just kiss you without a sound.” But that doesn’t necessarily mean she has a thing for me, right?[/color]
[color=#282828;]Greg Farshtey, Writer of Bionicle lore, Ninjago, Hero Factory, and esteemed Lego employee[/color]
[color=#282828;]Greg: For the record I would like to make it very clear that romance in Bionicle is non-canon and not at all possible. So to say that Toa Tuyet had feelings for Toa Nidhiki would be false and not true to the actual Bionicle story.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Lhikan: I wasn’t sad to see her go. I honestly don’t know her anymore. If I ever see her again, it would be too soon.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: Shorty after being taken from Metru Nui, she was dropped into the prison known only as The Pit, where she was sentenced to spend the rest of her days… Although in a turn of events, it seems there is still more to this story. Upon further investigation, it was discovered Toa Tuyet wasn’t taken directly to The Pit.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Helryx, Leader of the Order of Mata Nui[/color]
[color=#282828;]Helryx: I gave Botar specific instructions to inform her exactly about what she had done and about the power she held. The Nui Stone is a very powerful and dangerous object, and that no good little Southern Belle had the nerve to try and take it for her own. Apparently when Toa Lhikan broke it, shards of it were embedded in her armor, and that just made her even more of a risk to keep around.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Botar, refuses to give interviews[/color]
[color=#282828;]Trinuma, crazed Viking Warrior[/color]
[color=#282828;]Trinuma: Personally, the whole thing was just absurd. I just wanted to do something funny with her voice box. But our leader wanted to have her studied. At the same time, though, we still needed to do something about what would happen if anyone knew she was missing.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: The Order wished to examine Tuyet and the shard embedded in her armor with the secret desire to possibly produce more. In order to do that, Tuyet had to be isolated away and no one outside the order could ever know. At that point, a Tuyet from an alternate universe was plucked out and placed in the main dimension’s Tuyet, even having false shards embedded in her armor. For the next 1,500 years, the real Tuyet would remain as a test subject in an alternate universe where there were no Toa, as to avoid making her even more of a risk factor. Meanwhile, the decoy would take her spot so no one would ever know she was missing.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Trinuma: Simply put: If everyone thought Tuyet was locked in The Pit, no one would question it. And then we could get our research done. She was guarded by our immovable guards either way.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: A statement that would later be proven false. What would happen to the decoy Tuyet was another question. While she was meant to stay put where she was, things did not go as planned. It was on that day a horrific event took place, one that I think that everyone knew where they were when it happened. I myself was in the Pit where many criminals took advantage of the chaos and escaped. Unfortunately, I was attacked from behind and fell unconscious for a very long time, thus having no further recollection of events.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Nocturn, not very bright[/color]
[color=#282828;]Nocturn: Nocturn saw Hydraxon die. Nocturn not sure why being interviews for stupid show hosted by Hydraxon. Nocturn also saw pretty lady escaping from cell, but Nocturn not sure what she doing. Nocturn hear sayings that she try to help Hydraxon. Nocturn thinks she stupid if that what she doing! Then also hear she escaping like rest of us. But poor pretty lady did not make it out alive. Nocturn thought she very pretty. Nocturn also thought pretty lady had voice like sweet butter on summer day.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: Uh…? Hmm… From then on it was assumed Tuyet was killed for good. Whatever the intentions of this decoy, whether it be escaping for her own nefarious deeds or to serve on the side of justice, we may never fully know. Sadly, this fallen Toa wouldn’t be able to have a final resting place.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Matoro, reluctant hero[/color]
[color=#282828;]Matoro: I honestly hate this mask power. Know what it does? It reanimates the dead. When Makuta was trying to take me under his wing, he wanted me to bring back Toa Tuyet so he would use the Staff of Artakha to fix the Nui Stone. He got it from this really big moron who was wearing Makuta’s mask. Not sure how Makuta felt about it. The fun didn’t stop there, however. Oh, no, it got worse. It turned out Karzahni followed us there, and he also brought along his little helper elves and some lunk who had a mask like Hahli. Makuta got into a huge fight with Karzahni, and while it might sound like the match of the century, it wasn’t fun when I got involved. Upon getting attacked, I… kind of slipped up on the whole Zombie Tuyet thing. Karzahni then killed Zombie Tuyet. I wanted to get out of there, if I can be honest.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Takanuva, hero for hire[/color]
[color=#282828;]Takanuva: Like, I know it doesn’t really deal with the whole “main dimension” Tuyet, but I met an alternate version of her in another universe. I got sent around this dimensional voyage all because of that dumb head Brutaka, GOSH! I met this version of Tuyet who was still alive and ruled this empire with Nidhiki. She had Lhikan’s Hau displayed on a mantle like a trophy, GOSH! I mean, what is wrong with her?! I went into tell her off, but then she started seducing me and telling me I was cute and whatever. Then she put on Brutaka’s mask and said she was slipping into something more comfortable, but I thought it just made her look so stupid! She kept telling me she wanted me to be her king and we would rule forever. You know, at first I got annoyed by her accent and whatever, but then I figured she was kind of cute once you got past that. Unfortunately for her, I was already in the process of leaving, so like a total dumb head, she reached after me and begged me not to leave her. She got cut in half when the dimensional gate I opened closed on her. Why does this always happen to my love life? GOSH![/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet, obvious Ranamon wannabe[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet, evil giggle: I never really thought I would ever get out. But my patience paid off in the end. All I had to do was use my feminine charm on that guard, and just like almost every other guy I’ve met, he fell for me faster than an apple tree in a thunder storm! *squeals in delight* I mean, no one can resist the ‘lil cutie pie that is the one and only me![/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: It was on that day Order of Mata Nui member Trinuma was forced to eat his words. The guard Tuyet had spoken to, now wanting nothing more than her approval, helped her escape.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet: All he had to do was fake and explosion, and I was outta there faster than a cute ‘lil ol’ jackrabbit. I almost wish I could have seen the expression on that other guard’s face. I don’t think I wanted to see the expression on the face of the first guard, as I promised him a date. Well, you win some, you lose some. He lost while I won! It was so fantastic! It took me a long time, but I finally made it back home. And let me tell you, that ol’ dump had seen better days! I’ll admit, it did bring me down to hear Lhikan and Nidhiki were killed by that rusty ol’ fat guy in the dirty mask… *squeals in disgust* I don’t miss Naho, though. The ‘lil darlin’ was just no fun![/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: Tuyet questioned the inhabitants of Metru Nui as to the state of the universe following the hostile takeover orchestrated by Makuta Teridax. She then hatched a plan of her own for her own dastardly agenda.[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet: I did not want to keep my adorin’ fans a-waitin’ for me. Lucky that all that time I was gone, the Nui Stone was fully recharged and ready to go! So my message for Makuta Teridax?[/color]
[color=#282828;]*Tuyet gets up, does some twirls, and makes a cute pose*[/color]
[color=#282828;]Tuyet: I’m comin’ for you, sugar![/color]
[color=#282828;]Hydraxon: What exactly would Tuyet’s challenge to Teridax be? More importantly, how believable was her escape? All that and more later on. Next up, we take a look into the murder of Makuta Kojol, plus a small string of murders that followed. Coincidence or planned? [/color]Later, who is the being known only as Artakha? All that and more coming up next.
