After the latest updates on bionicle.com, I was anxious to speak with Jala and Takua about the liberation of Ga-Koro and the theft of Tahu Nuvaís symbol. I called them in Ta-Koro.
Interview with Jala and Takua
GaliGee: Thanks for talking with us, Jala and Takua. We were really amazed at your heroism in Ga-Koro.
Takua: Aww, shucks.
Jala: Just doing our j-j-job, GaliGee.
GaliGee: Of course, the first thing we want to know is this: Takua, what were you thinking when you jumped in front of those Pahrak in Ga-Koro?
Takua: I wasnít really thinking. I just went with my gut feeling. I couldnít bear to see the people I loved being terrorized by those monsters. And then, I had this vision, from Gali, I think. It wasnít very clear, but I saw the Toa surrounding these two hideous, snapping creatures, and blasting them with their elemental powers. It seemed like the right time to act.
GaliGee: So you didnít know what would happen?
Takua: No, but I had faith it would work out, somehow. I figured it would at least slow them down, and buy our people some time. Boy, was I relieved when the Pahrak stopped. I looked back, and there was a beam of light shooting out of Galiís Suva. And I knew the Toa had won.
GaliGee: Well, it was very brave of you to jump into harmís way, without even knowing what you would do!
Jala: Yes, he was brave. I launched him, but I d-d-didnít know what he would do, either.
GaliGee: So, Jala, how is having the Boxors going to change your military strategy?
Jala: It really gives us a lot more to work with. We were just winging it, with the Bohrok attacks. And we know they have some limitations. No Boxors in Ga-Koro! Or in the dense j-j-jungle. Theyíre really awesome in the other v-v-villages, though. The Turaga and I plan to go over some new strategies soon.
GaliGee: So, tell me about the theft of Tahuís Nuva symbol.
Jala: It was awful! We had a lovely j-j-journey back from the sunlit joy of Ga-Koro. And I was feeling physically tired, but inside I was rested and calm. So, I s-s-set off on my rounds. And Takua, bless his heart, he came with me, even though he must have been tired, too. But when I saw the electrified guard, I was shocked!
Takua: Bad pun, Jala.
Jala: What pun? Oh, sorry. Then I realized there was a Bohrok next to the Suva! Now, even when they are tame, you still have to keep an eye on the Bohrok. They r-r-really canít be trusted. So, I hurled my disc. But that didnít bother it at all.
Takua: He knocked me out of the way and took the blast himself. What a great guy.
Jala: Yeah, well, it was my t-t-turn to jump in front of a Bohrok, I guess.
Takua: We heard great Toa Tahuís footsteps approaching, and we were relieved. Whatís one lousy Bohrok against the Toa Nuva of Fire? You guys havenít really seen him in action much yet, but let me tell you, he has got some kind of power now. Heís like a walking volcano. As hot as the heart of the Mangai.
GaliGee: Wow. You must have been very surprised when his powers failed.
Jala: Not p-p-pleasantly surprised! We f-f-figured he would vaporize the renegade Bohrok, and after the burning metal smell went away, everything would be b-b-back to normal.
Takua: The creature started blasting rocks out of the doorway. They started falling over Toa Tahuís head, and he laughed. But when he raised his swords to shoot fire at it, nothing happened Ė just a wimpy little wisp of smoke coming off the tip of each magma blade. Iíve never seen Toa Tahu look like that. Puzzled, confusedÖ well, I guess he looked kind of like that when he first saw Makuta as a Matoran. But it doesnít happen often.
GaliGee: Why didnít Tahu use his Hau Nuva to block the falling rocks?
Jala: Well, he did eventually, after he g-g-got over the shock of losing his powers, and after he was slammed to the ground.
GaliGee: That must have hurt.
Takua: I think he was more hurt inside than out. He was really horrified that he had no way of protecting us villagers anymore.
GaliGee: Yes, protection seems to be his strong suit. Usually. Then what did he do?
Jala: Well, he got up, slowly, and w-w-went to see if the guard and I were all right. We were fine, once the Tahnok-K-k-kal left.
Takua: He says heís fine, but he keeps twitching, GaliGee. Iím not so sure.
Jala: I AM f-f-f-f-f-fine. Then he stared at the Suva for a while. Then he got ready to go find the other Toa. He conferred with V-v-vakama for a few m-m-minutes, and then he left
GaliGee: You DO sound a little rattled, Jala. Maybe you should get some rest.
Jala: N-n-nonsense. I have more work to do than ever. Did you r-r-read Comic #10?
GaliGee: Of course. Why?
Jala: Because if the Kal s-s-s-s-s-s-succeed in releasing the Bahrag, the island is going to be c-c-covered with Bohrok Va, bringing new krana to all those Bohrok we so carefully t-t-tamed. And itís going to be chaos again.
Takua: Yeah. We have to keep a close eye on things. But I know the Toa will prevail. Somehow. Even though those Kal are seemingly invincible, and the Toa have only their Kanohi powers. And apparently those arenít very effective against the Kal.
Jala: Yes, they must. And we m-m-must do everything we can to protect the v-v-villages, in the meantime. Weíve tightened security around Ta-Koro, of c-c-course, and the Guard always helps with the othersí defenses, too.
GaliGee: I have faith in the Toa, too. And in you Matorans! Say, speaking of the other villagesÖ I hear you made a new friend in Ga-Koro, Jala.
Jala [laughs nervously]: Oh, Hahliís s-s-so cute! I n-n-never thought I would say that about anyone.
Takua: He looked nice with that flower in his mask, didnít he?
Jala: Yeah, I was almost as c-c-colorful as you.
GaliGee: That was sweet. So, Takua, after the Bohrok defeat, did you ever get a chance to gaze at the stars with Nixie, the astrologer? I seem to remember she had invited you.
Takua: Yes, I did, but it wasnít like I had imagined, because Nokama came along. We all went up to the telescope, and they spent about three hours looking through the telescope and reviewing the ancient writings. I just sat there, looking around. Mostly at Nixie.
GaliGee: What did you find out?
Takua: I donít know. They kept talking to each other in some mysterious Ga-Koro dialect, and glancing at me. Then as we were leaving, Nokama took me aside. She asked me not to get involved with Nixie, since she didnít want her astrologer to be distracted right now. There was too much important prophecy work to do.
GaliGee: Well, thatís disappointing.
Takua: Iíll say. She basically told me, in her polite Nokama sort of way, to get lost.
Jala: Like you n-n-need a Matoran girlfriend, anyway. You have a special b-b-bond with Gali!
Takua: Yeah, a lot of good THAT does me. Iím just a Matoran. Of course, sometimes I dream about being a ToaÖ
Jala [laughs]: Y-y-you and everybody else.
GaliGee: Takua, tell me about this dream.
Takua: Oh, I have it about once a week. I dream thereís a brilliant flash of light. I look down at myself, and Iíve been transformed into a Toa. Iím all metallic, with a gold mask. One Iíve never seen before. And Iím riding some kind of giant creature, very nimble and fast.
Jala: Thatís g-g-great. Too bad youíll never get to ride anything faster than Puku in real life, though.
Takua [sighs]: Yeah, itís just a stupid dream.
GaliGee: But a very interesting one. Well, Iíll let you get back to your duties. Thanks for talking with us!
Takua: No problem, GaliGee.
Jala: Youíre w-w-w-w-w-w-wÖ oh, n-n-never m-m-m-mÖ
GaliGee: Hope you feel better soon, Jala. Bye! [click]
Poor Jala. Maybe he needs to de-gauss himself. Anyway, there you have it, the latest from the fearless adventurers of Ta-Koro. This is GaliGee reporting.

GaliGee's Stories Redux
I'm back after being banned because my account was hacked. My old stories topic is gone and some of my stories were damaged, but I'm restoring them with a little help from Shadow Vahki. Thanks for bearing with me while I get it back together!
