Voltex posted a topic in Short StoriesI figured that it might be useful to have a central location where people (including me) can find all of my stories on the site. I will not be including the majority of my comedies here; most of them are basically unreadable thanks to those mysterious coding errors that struck awhile back. One of them is included here, since I cared enough to go back and fix it. Basically everything else is probably from after November 2013. This series was originally based upon the Bionicle Mafia game series in Games & Trivia, although it has since diverged from the standard formatting of those games, expanding into a whole universe and story of its own. This series details the adventures of a cast of characters named after BZPower members; signups are opened before each major installment to determine which members can join the cast, and of course, survival is never guaranteed. Prelude (March 2014) Although the name lacks creativity, and it is not required reading, Prelude provided a brief glimpse into the mind of Voltex, as well as giving readers a glimpse of backstory prior to the events that take place within Book 1 - Isolation. Many of the flashbacks in Book 2 - Extraction make use of this time period as well. Book 1 - Isolation / Review (March 2014) Told from the viewpoints of Voltex, Ehks, Sumiki and Pulse, Book 1 - Isolation tells the tale of 23 Matoran who are trapped inside a conference hall after it is ambushed by the terrorist Xaeraz. The Matoran must survive the attacks of a group of traitors hired by Xaeraz to kill the rest, and execute those they believe to be guilty in order to escape. This epic is very self-contained, and the readers are given very little information to understand why it is happening, allowing them to learn alongside the main characters. All Hail the King (September 2014) Much like Prelude, this short story is not required reading; however, narrated by Fishers64 (or, as she is most commonly known in the story, "Agent 64"), it provides some valuable insights into the world that this series is set in, as well as the first real glimpse of how the White Council runs things. The timing of this story is unclear, although it does take place sometime before Prelude. An organization known as "Control" also features prominently, although their role in events is unknown. Book 2 - Extraction / Review (October 2014) Told from the viewpoints of Voltex, Ehks, Agent 64, Burnmad, Xaeraz and White Thirteen, Book 2- Extraction dictates the continued struggles of the survivors from Book 1 - Isolation as they find themselves at battle with two mysterious forces. The group meets a new cast of Matoran along the way, although whether they can trust these newcomers or not is never clear. In order to escape back to Metru-Nui, they must work with their greatest enemies and betray their closest friends. Book 2 - Extraction also provides much of the backstory that was absent in Book 1 - Isolation, explaining the relationships between several characters and detailing how the various narrators came to be who they are in this epic. Book 3 - Extermination / Review (December 2014) The final installment of the Uprising series and narrated by eight different characters, Extermination was written as a standalone story, to allow more people to enjoy it. Having survived the events of Isolation and Extraction, the survivors started an uprising against the White Council - one year later, they remain at war. But a new figure, known only as the "Shadow", has appeared, and they are hunting down all involved in the war one by one... it is no longer a war. It is a matter of survival. It is extermination. By the Fireside (December 2015) A standalone short story starring the member Dina Saruyama. I wrote it for her for the BZPower 2015 Secret Santa gift exchange. In this story, her character runs into a decrepit robot within the jungle of Bota-Magna, and the two remininsce about the past, discuss the present, and contemplate the future that awaits them. Oblivion / Review (January 2016) A standalone BZPower epic, in which four Matoran (and one Agori) are gathered by a Mad Great Being. They find themselves in a deadly race to find the Mask of Life while hunting a dangerous and mysterious villain, with the hopes of saving Spherus-Magna before it can be destroyed. These works are, as the header states, unrelated to any other projects. They are often standalone, or the number of installments in their series is too small for me to put the effort into dedicating an entire section of this "library" to them. Tahu vs. Tahu [G1] (December 2010) Originally released on December 19, 2010, Tahu vs. Tahu was, for a long time, my magnum opus. It is an epicomedy starring the Bionicle sets, who go to war when their leader, Tahu Mata, clases with his remake, Tahu Stars, for control over the House. It has been re-released as of March 28, 2015, as the first two seasons were lost with the archives and the second two have become gibberish since coding errors hit them in 2013. Bionicle Mafia IV: The Smiting (April 2013) This is unrelated to the Bionicle Mafia series above, and is instead based upon the game Bionicle Mafia IV: The Rich, The Poor, and The Pyro, run by Zakaro. I was in contact with the Medic during this game, and a conversation he had with Zakaro over PM (which was relayed to me) inspired me to write this short comedy about the Medic and I trying to steal Zakaro's ice cream. One Last Stop (November 2013) This was my final comedy, starring Vultraz, Jaller, Mazeka and Takua (four of my favorite characters from my comedies, and who together managed to appear in basically every comedy that I wrote). No prior reading is required to enjoy this, although its effect will definitely be strongest for those who read the likes of Vultraz's Diner, Tahu vs. Tahu, and How to Be a Hero. This signaled my goodbye to the comedies forum and the characters within, although I would revisit Vultraz at least once more, and I have a little something that is still in very early planning stages. King Vultraz (September 2014) Made in response to the official announcement of Bionicle's return in 2015, this short story once more stars Vultraz, Jaller, Mazeka and Takua. No prior reading is necessary, of course. I was inspired to write it by members commenting that the Mask of Creation looked like Vultraz's Mask of Scavenging wearing a crown; while I did not personally see the resemblance, inspiration bit me anyway. This brief tale chronicles a portion of Vultraz's journey to claim the mask and rule the universe. All That We've Lost / Review (November 2014) Written as a sequel to the games Bionicle Mafia III: By the Numbers and Bionicle Mafia XVIII: By the Numbers 2 (with this story also being known as By the Numbers 3), this two parter epic is actually a standalone story as well. It was originally meant to be a short story, but grew too large, and so was split into two chapters. It stars Voltex and Taka Nuvia as they journey through twisted versions of the former's memories while hunting down Makuta. What is the Potoo?! (January 2015) Another comedy based upon the Bionicle Mafia game series and quite possibly my most absurd work yet - I think "absurd" is just about the only word that can possibly fit, to be honest. It stars several BZPower members arguing about who shall be roasted with marshmallows, while they also discover the Potoo. This story was also coincidentally my 5000th post on the forums, although that was not intentional. It was also the first instance of me breaking the "One Last Stop is my final comedy" rule. Tahu vs. Tahu / Review (July 2015) The six 2015 Toa (known as the "Toa Okoto") arrive at a House in the year 2010, having traveled back in time. With no memories to guide them, they must discover their purpose in the past while also surviving a civil war and stopping a mysterious enemy that threatens to destroy every single set alive. BZPGOT: Lore & Histories / Review (July 2016) Differing from my usual projects, this isn't so much a story as it is a world-building exercise, expanding the world of BZPower's Game of Thrones. With chapters focusing on the different regions, factions, races, and perhaps even players of the game, my intent is to craft a resource that might just prove to be invaluable in future iterations of the game. What is the Potoo?! 2 (January 2017) The sequel to What is the Potoo?!, in which a team of far too many BZPower members is sent by Windrider to find Voltex after he fell down a hole two years prior. Finding them scattered all across an absurd version of Okoto and haunted by the call of the Potoo, Blade, Portalfig, SPIRIT, Luroka, and all the rest soon find themselves locked into an adventure that really should not have been written in the first place. This was written and posted as my 10, 000th post, just because I could. I will, of course, update this once I have posted more things.
(Review) Vultraz's Diner: OKOTORead King Vultraz The Premise After seizing control of a the "Great Kanohi Mask" and becoming a king, we return to Vultraz now. He runs a Diner in Metru-Nui, he's lost his precious Mask, and everything is spiralling downward. This epic will contain "mini-arcs"; every three or so chapters will be tied together by some sort of central concept, but the epic will still contain several over-arching plotlines. The Story (Topic) The Diner C1 - C2 - C3 The Cast TBA So... you can review here! This does not, at the moment, have a steady release schedule planned; I'll post chapters as I write them.
Vultraz's Diner: OKOTOCHAPTER 1 - THE DINER, PART 1 It was an ordinary morning - just like it always is at the beginning of any tale. Seven airships had crash landed in Ga-Metru during the night, destroying half the Metru, while Po-Metru had somehow launched themselves into the sky, and they now hovered several hundred feet above where they had formerly been connected to the rest of the city. Down to the south in BZ-Koro, these events were of no concern to the customers enjoying the typical servings of Vultraz’s Diner, and the staff of said Diner were happily going about their jobs… as happily as they could, anyway; working for Vultraz was always a bit of a chore to all but the most loyal of workers. A red and black Matoran of Shadow meandered through the various tables and booths in the restaurant, a white chef’s hat upon his head, a white apron tied around his waist, and a plastic spoon tucked into his pocket. In his hands were a pen and notepad, upon which he scribbled the comments of his various customers. To those who did not know him personally (everyone that did not work at the diner), this habit made Vultraz seem kind and well-mannered, caring about his customers more than any of the other restaurants within BZ-Koro. That assumption could not be further from the truth. “Um, excuse me, sir?” The Shadow Matoran paused, pen halfway to his pocket; he turned around slowly to face the Le-Matoran that had spoken. “Yes?” “My coffee was stone cold when it arrived,” the Le-Matoran said, gesturing towards the untouched mug that was suspiciously lacking the tell-tale steam that came with actually being hot coffee. “Don’t you have a guarantee that your coffee will arrive so piping hot that drinking it scalds the tongue?” “We don’t have tongues,” Vultraz said. “We’re biomechanical beings. The fact that we even consume food and drinks rather than just absorbing energy in a horribly defined way doesn’t even make sense.” The Le-Matoran blinked, momentarily confused, before reaching into a pocket of the cloak that he had wrapped around his chair and pulling out a small piece of folded paper. He rapidly unfolded it and flattened it upon the table, reviewing an ad for the Diner that clearly stated a personal guarantee from Vultraz himself that the coffee would be so piping hot when served that drinking it would scald the tongue. “If you don’t mind, I would like two things,” the Le-Matoran said after a moment of silence. “And those are?” “The first is a refund,” the Le-Matoran said, standing and throwing on his cloak, pulling out a business card and tucking it into Vultraz’s apron. “The second is your appearance in the Metru-Nui court in two weeks’ time, after I sue you.” “I-you can’t-what?” Vultraz spluttered. Vultraz glared at the Le-Matoran as he turned around briefly to smirk before exiting the Diner, the doors rattling as they were slammed shut. The Shadow Matoran remained where he was standing, mouth slightly open, as everything continued like normal around him. --- Once he regained his sense of reality a few minutes later (after several customers had excused themselves, creeped out by the owner staring at them with a gaping mouth), he immediately launched into detective mode. “Who’s been on coffee this morning?” he demanded as soon as he entered the kitchen. The black and yellow, bug-like face of his personal assistant, a Makuta named Bitil, poked out of the office that they both shared. “Why, is something up?” “A coffee was stone cold and now I’m being sued,” Vultraz fumed. “Who was on coffee?” “Jaller does coffee on Tuesday,” Bitil answered. “He’s on break out back right now. Would you like me to page him?” “No,” Vultraz said, grabbing a wooden baseball bat from its resting place in the corner. “I’ve got this one under control. Get your medical kit ready. You’ll probably have to fix up a few limbs once I’m done… and maybe a mask as well.” “Yes sir.” The Shadow Matoran tossed his hat to the side and threw his apron up onto the hook, hefting the baseball bat onto his shoulder as he made his way through the kitchen, ducking underneath the wooden beam carried by the hulking monstrosity that was Makuta Icarax and shivering as the walk-in freezer doors were opened as he passed by. As he kicked the back door open and stepped into the alley, two of the three Matoran standing outside flinched; the third merely rolled his eyes. The one that had not flinched was a white and grey Ko-Matoran known as Mazeka, and he made no attempt to hide the smoking pipe in his hand that disgusted Vultraz so much. The other two Matoran were, respectively, a red and blue Av-Matoran called Takua, and the Matoran that Vultraz had ventured out here to see - the red and yellow Ta-Matoran known as Jaller. “Which of you was on coffee today?” Vultraz asked. The three Matoran remained silent for a full minute before Jaller finally quietly stammered, “M-me…” “I have half a mind to beat you to death,” Vultraz said, “and the other half just wants to fire you and chain you in the freezer, to see how long you’ll last.” “What was wrong?” Mazeka asked cautiously. “That’s none of your business,” Vultraz snapped. “And get that pipe out of my sight! I explicitly told you that smoking was not allowed here!” He turned back to Jaller, who flinched again and cowered against the wall, letting out a squeaky “what did I do?!” “The coffee was stone cold, and now I’m being sued by some idiot I don’t even know the name of!” Vultraz snarled. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we’ve kinda been underperforming lately! If I have to pay too large a settlement, this place is going under!” “Wait, stone cold?” Jaller asked, seeming confused. “But… it was piping hot when I made it! How could it have gotten cold? I just went on break two minutes ago!” Before Vultraz could speak, Mazeka interrupted, looking sheepish. “Oh… that uh… that might be my fault.” “What?” Vultraz hissed, whirling on the Ko-Matoran. “I-well, I wanted to prank Jaller,” Mazeka said, looking alarmed. “While he was watching over the pancakes I flash froze the coffee in the freezer and then brought it back out. I thought he’d notice that it wasn’t steaming!” “It was steaming though!” Jaller protested. “How would it be steaming?!” Mazeka exclaimed. “That was my fault,” Takua mumbled. The other three Matoran froze, slowly turning to the Matoran of Light, who refused to meet any of their eyes, instead staring at the ground. “What did you do?” Vultraz asked slowly. “I put acid in the coffee,” Takua mumbled. “Turaga Vakama was being rude to me again….” “You’re fired,” Vultraz said, as Mazeka facepalmed behind him. “And I think you really deserve this.” The Shadow Matoran swung the bat and it collided with Takua’s head with a thud, knocking the Av-Matoran into the wall, where he crumpled to the ground, dazed. Pulling the bat back, Vultraz furiously whipped it into the air, and it landed on the roof of the Diner with a clatter. “I cannot believe you three!” he exploded. “Seriously, what in Karzahni possessed you all to be so stupid? Was the whole Mutran debacle not lesson enough that you shouldn’t be messing around at work?! I mean, come on! Attempted murder? Really?” “Yeah, because you’ve totally never tried to kill anyone,” Mazeka said drily. “Shut up!” Vultraz snapped. “Today sucks,” Jaller muttered. “I didn’t even do anything wrong!” “You could have actually noticed that the coffee was frozen!” Vultraz exclaimed. “All three of you are fools!” “You keep playing up the ‘we’re in financial trouble’ card, and yet you employ Makuta and have a Mask of Dimensional Gates in your possession,” Mazeka replied. “Maybe you could, like, sell the mask? Not employ the most powerful species in the universe?” “You know that we shouldn’t even have the mask, and you know why the Makuta were all hired,” Vultraz hissed. “And I swear to Karzahni, if you mention those topics out loud again, I will gut you.” He was cut off from saying more by the sound of the door to the kitchen opening again, and he turned around to see Makuta Bitil, looking extremely worried. “What is it?” Vultraz asked, sighing. “Um, Mr. Makuro is here…” Bitil said, trailing off. “Mr. Makuro?” Mazeka asked. “You mean the owner of Hero School?” Vultraz turned to face him. “Shut you mouth. Jaller, Mazeka, get Takua back inside and wait in my office until I have time to deal with you.” “Mr. Makuro is in the office right now,” Bitil said from behind him. “FINE! They can go to the basement and wait there!” Vultraz yelled, turning back to Bitil as the other Matoran scrambled to do as he had ordered. “Why is he here?” “He says that he hasn’t been pleased with the performance of the Metru-Nui Eatery, something about Radiak being a pain to work with,” Bitil replied. “If you’re willing, he wants to work out a deal with us instead.” Vultraz grinned. “Are you serious?” “Dead serious. Well, not dead, but… you know.” “This might just save us,” Vultraz replied, rubbing his hands together gleefully. “Alright - I’ll go meet with Mr. Makuro. Bitil, the business card of the fartface trying to sue us is in the pocket of my apron - go do a check up on whoever it is, alright? And have Vamprah go downstairs and guard those three bumbling idiots. The last thing I need is one of them messing up something down there….” “Yes, it might be an issue if they activated the Mask of Dimensional Gates,” Bitil mused. “I thought that was in the attic,” Vultraz said. “No, there wasn’t room for the dimensional travel chamber up there,” Bitil explained. “So Mutran had Chirox and I move it to the basement instead.” “Have Vamprah get down there immediately, then,” Vultraz decided. “If they find some way to travel through dimensions or blow up the Diner or whatever, so help me, I shall send them to Karzahni in person.” “Of course, sir. Would you like anything for your meeting?” Vultraz thought for a moment before nodding. “A glass of Dr. Pepper might be nice.” As the Makuta rushed away to fulfill the Shadow Matoran’s commands, Vultraz took a moment to frown at the turnout of the day. He had a sinking feeling that whether his meeting went well with Mr. Makuro or not, this day was just going to get worse. And to top it all off, I lost the one item that could make everything right again, he thought. I should have stayed as king. To Be Continued. Review Topic
MAFIA POINT SIX: A CLOCKWORK VOID
Voltex posted a topic in Games & TriviaMafia Point-Six: A Clockwork Void It turned out that an eternity of non-existence was actually rather dull, even when said eternity involved a never-ending battle with Makuta, the embodiment of shadow. Neither of them could ever stop pushing the other, for to do so would be to admit defeat, and neither wished to discover what occurred when you were erased from being erased itself. Diving into the lava with his worst enemy in tow had been one of the most foolish decisions of his life, and despite the good that he knew it had done, he was regretting it immensely. Screw the catharsis and the lessons learned – even if it gave Makuta another shot at life too, Voltex wanted to be alive again. There was only one problem – that being, he technically did not exist. And with that never-ending wall of shadow pushing against his wall of fire, he could not just “return” (nor did he know how to do that if he could). No, it would have to be done externally. That was where the group he had gathered came in. Some of the bravest, most foolhardy Matoran he had ever known before he was wiped out of the universe – each of them with a nagging feeling in the back of their minds that the Desolation of the Staff was where they needed to be. So there they stood upon the edge of the Desolation, the wind howling and ripping at their armor, until a staircase sank down from the ground before them, opening into a tunnel below. With only the briefest of glances to each other, the Matoran descended into the staircase one by one as the ground closed up to swallow them. They walked in the darkness for several hours before arriving in a large, lit, circular cavern. In the middle of the cavern stood two wooden signs, each pointing off to a different tunnel extending away from the cavern. The ghostly outline of a once-familiar face appeared before them. Before you wait two choices, a voice said in their minds. To your left lies a treacherous path, full of fire and shadows and lightning and death. To your right lies a well-lit hallway, with rest stops along the way. This is the first choice you shall make upon this journey... and like all the others that come after, you can only survive one of them. Two of the Matoran, who were somewhat less foolish than the others (or so it would seem), chose the path on the right as the figure faded, while the rest went left. Those going left had barely finished entering their own tunnel when they heard the screams – and turning, they watched as acid rain poured down from the ceiling of the hallway on the right, melting the two unfortunate Matoran. Seconds later, there was nothing to suggest that they had even existed. You chose correctly, but your companions did not, the voice said, as the figure appeared before them again. Such will be the course of your journey – and so, no matter what else may occur, always remember that the priority is to choose the right path... or else you might not be given the chance to walk again. With this, the figure vanished – and the remaining Matoran, after briefly sharing glances with each other, set off once more on their journey under the Desolation of the Staff. In Brief You are one of the members of a small group of courageous Matoran who obeyed an intuition telling you to return to the Desolation of the Staff, where Mt. Power – where Voltex and Makuta were erased from existence – lies in the center. Upon arrival, you entered an underground chamber and made the first decision of many on your journey. You see, where the aboveground of the Desolation holds nothing but hazards that will beat you down and kill you should you remain there too long, the underground is worse. A twisting labyrinth, the underground of the Desolation holds choices. Upon each new day and night cycle, you will be given two options on how you wish to proceed – one option will kill you (and most likely wipe you from existence), while the other will allow you to survive and move on. The choice, of course, is individual. Should you die by making the wrong decision at the forks in the path, that is it – your journey is over. However, should you die during a lynching (in the day) or at the hands of another player (at night), you will have the chance to return to life. Every three rounds, any surviving players shall reach a checkpoint, and any players that have been killed during a lynching or at night by a player shall be revived, and they shall receive a new role from the pool of roles belonging to those eliminated or dead before the checkpoint. This is, for the most part, an individual game – though of course, alliances may form when convenient. Rules 1 – Have fun 2 – G&T Rules Apply 3 – No contacting me regarding the game outside BZP 4 – Anything else I forgot to mention Roles Medic x1 – Once per night, this player can protect anyone except for themselves from death. Once per day, this player can protect anyone except for themselves from the lynching. When protected by the Medic, a player will survive any incorrect choices made at the forks in the path. Detective x1 – Once per night, this player can investigate another player to determine their role. Once per game, the Detective can also use their abilities to discover the correct path, should a fork in the road prove too difficult. Ghost x1 – This player masquerades as another role (of their choosing) each night in case the Detective investigates them. If killed after another role has died, the Ghost will immediately be revived with a new role. Raven x1 – Once per night, this player can copy the powers of the Medic, the Detective, or the Traitor. If investigated, the Raven will show up as the role they used upon that night. Rugged x1 – This player can only be killed by making a mistake at a fork in the road. Cryo x1 – This player cannot be killed by another player at night, and can target one player for death every odd-numbered round. Pyro x1 – This player cannot be killed by a lynching, and can target one other player for death every even-numbered round. Traitor x1 – Once per night, this player can kill another player. Inventor x1 – Once per night, this player can build Plot Armor (for protection), Plot Device (for investigation), or Plot Weapon (for one kill) to be given to another player. These tools are one use only. Turaga x1 – This player’s vote counts for double at the lynching, and they will always choose the correct path at the fork in the road during the day. Player List 1 – Blade 2 – Chro 3 – Dapper Man 4 – Lhikevikk 5 – Ehks 6 – MT 7 – Kayn 8 – Manducus 9 – Canis 10 – Zakaro there you go, now i suppose you can sign up...
BENNY! CAKE! SPACESHIP!
Nukaya posted a topic in General ArtSorry, no actual spaceship here. But there is cake! I made a Benny birthday cake for Kakaru. I followed a recipe/design from Sprinkle Bakes. I really liked the visual created by all the lines of Pocky. Benny's helmet and face is made out of chocolate, and I dipped biscuit sticks in chocolate to make blue Pocky. I didn't have a cake stand, so I made a simple one out of LEGO (causing the discussion of "does this count as a system MOC that should be in the system MOC forum?"). It was super delicious!
BIONICLE Cake Toppers
Sybre posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionNow sure where this belongs but here it goes. My family used to get Birthday Express magazines in the mail. Birthday Express is a company that sells party supplies and Halloween costumes (which is in Costume Express). My brother and I used to read the magazines and we got a few birthday party supplies from them, including BIONICLE and Knights' Kingdom (anyone remember that?). Well, I one time got these cake toppers from them a few years back, and I had them ever since. I was wondering if anyone else had them or if they knew about them. Maybe some photographic evidence will help. These cake toppers are surprisingly set accurate, with Vakama's head being the one exception. The set-like detail on these guys are astonishing, considering they aren't as tall as a standing roll of toilet paper. The only movable parts on them are on the arms, but action scenes are hard to pull off. I'm rather disappointed that the whole team or even the Visorak were not produced in such a manner. I would have tried to get Nokama, Nuju, Whenua, and Onewa cake toppers if they were ever made. They would add a little more play ability to Vakama and Matau, something these two really needed. So, anyway, here's that photographic evidence I promised earlier. Vakama and Matau, back-to-back Vakama Front View Matau Front View Sword Clash! If you want some more pictures, just say so! These guys aren't going anywhere! And before anyone might ask, I'm not really interested in selling these. They're probably the rarest BIONICLE-related objects I own and you can't buy these anywhere else, not even online (as far as I know). Despite their rarity, I doubt I can get much off of them anyway. So, how about you guys? Do you know of the elusive BIONICLE cake toppers only sold through one distributor? Birthday Express doesn't carry any BIONICLE- related supplies anymore (big shocker!), so there's a chance that these two cake toppers may be the only ones left in existence! Unless you or someone else happens to own a pair of them. What do you have to say?
CaT in Rogue posted a topic in ComicsWelcome to K Enterprises!, a continuation of MSPain(T) Comics!, which ended last year. Why am I doing a continuation of a series I ended, you may ask? Well, I feel that I imposed too many restrictions on myself with the settings and characters, so I decided to make a series that specifically introduces and aspect that makes it so I can work around that. This series is based in the K Enterprises! company, a collection of the best comic makers. I figure with a setting like that, I can use tons of new ideas with no problems. Please note that PGSing will place you as a member of K Enterprises! in the comics continuity. The sprite kit used is by Dark709. Also, the number-to-symbols thing is the same. Have fun! Comic !: A Whole New World! (of selling out) GS list: PGS List: To apply for GS or PGS, please PM me with a sprite or sprite description, plus a list of character traits. Thank you!

Tahu Wants Cake... A Lot...
Fastcar800 posted a topic in Short StoriesTahu: "Let me have that cake"Guurahk: "You'll have to take it from me"Tahu: "With pleasure "5 minutes later...Tahu: "BURN STUFF!"Tahu melts the Guurahk and eats the cake
Phovos posted a topic in Short StoriesThe smell of sweet, freshly cooked sponge cake was insulting his nostrils. It wasn't fair. He wanted cake. And he wanted it now. Nuhvok-Kal didn't understand much these days. It felt like years since he had fought the Toa Nuva and been sucked into a black hole created by his own, out-of-control powers. He had no idea what had happened to his siblings. He didn't even know if the nest or the Bahrag or anything still existed. He could have been completely alone. Except he wasn't. The smell was taunting him through the gaps of the old, rusty 'oven'. Not even Mata Nui knew how old that oven was. Nuhvok originally thought that it must have been millions of years old, compared to the rust he'd seen on the oldest Matoran, but he was later told that wasn't the case. He was also asked what a Matoran was. "Can I have some please?" Nuhvok asked, his eyes lighting up. The human didn't reply. He didn't even look at Nuhvok. He was looking at the door. Someone was knocking on it. Nuhvok sighed, then headed to the low cupboard by the 'refrigerator'. He climbed in and pulled the door shut, just as the other door opened. "Zhe cake iz not ready yet..." "I'm noot loooking for cake, laddie boy! I'm lookin' for me whiskey!" There was an audible sigh from both sides of the conversation as a cupboard near Nuhvok's location opened and quickly slammed shut again. "Ahh, cheers, mate!" "Zhe coast is clear, little one..." Nuhvok waited for a few seconds, for the other human to let him out, then climbed out, careful not to knock the door off its hinges again. With a grunt, Nuhvok climbed up one of the chairs, then continued to watch the cake being made. This human was an odd one. It spoke with a lot of Zs and Vs and such. Apparently, he was a 'doctor', but he wasn't like any doctor he'd seen back on Mata Nui. The Matoran doctors and healers used magic and elemental powers. This human used specialised technology. And he still hadn't told Nuhvok his name. With another grunt, Nuhvok watched as the 'doctor' took the cake out of the 'oven' and turned it off, the flame disappearing with a quiet fizzle. The smell was even better now that there wasn't rust and fire in the way. It was like... Well, Nuhvok didn't really know. "Have you had cake before?" Someone asked out of the blue, grabbing Nuhvok's attention. "No, I have not." Nuhvok replied. "But my enhanced sense of smell is struggling to cope with the scents I am inhaling..." The doctor grinned, then opened a draw and pulled out a large, wooden cylinder. He then opened another cupboard and pulled out several different packets, all of which were white. After that, he rummaged around for a small, blue bottle, and put that on the worktop along with the other ingredients. "Cannot have a cake without zhe icing..." "Icing?" Nuhvok asked. "Does that have to do with ice?" "Nein!" the doctor replied cheerfully, before pouring a bag of something called 'flour' on the worktop. He then opened another packet and dumped that on the side too. But this other thing came out as a solid square. He then carefully opened the small, blue bottle and placed a drop of that on the solid square, which he then started to knead and push about with the wooden cylinder. "Ach, I could not be bozhered vith making it myself..." Before long, the solid white block was now a flat, round shape of pale blue. The doctor grinned, then placed the pale blue 'icing' on top of the cake, trimming the edges away. The doctor held a piece of icing up, just as there was another knock on the door. Nuhvok scurried away back to his cupboard and slammed it shut. "Who is it?" "Doc, is that darn ol'cake ready? The boys are gettin' anxious out there! Not t'mention tha' they're gettin' obnoxious!" "Ja, it's ready. Let me get zhe candles. Tell zhe... Zhing to get itz lighter so ve can light zhem..." Nuhvok could hear the sound of rummaging in draws and the rustling of paper, before everything disappeared. Several rooms away, there was a loud cheer and what sounded like songs, which soon faded back into normal chatter. Nuhvok sat alone in his little cupboard, unsure whether he could leave or not. The problem was, only the doctor knew about him. He'd never told the other humans. Nuhvok had seen the other humans before, he'd peered at them through the gaps in his little hiding places, but he knew that they wouldn't accept them. Well, not all of them. Some of the humans were quite scary or quite vicious. They had a funny job. They were 'Mercenaries' as the doctor had explained, but the idea of killing for a prize made very little sense to the Bohrok. Even their emotions and thoughts were a mess to a being who's own emotions were so mechanical... Time passed. It must have been about fifteen minutes, but Nuhvok wasn't sure. Either way, the room was empty. The only difference was that the cake was gone, and there was some paper on the work top. Wait, where did the paper come from? With a hint of curiosity in his giant, yellow eyes, Nuhvok climbed onto the work top and looked at the paper. There was a note on it. He sniffed, then followed his nose over to the edge of the worktop, where something was hidden in a small, wooden box. Nuhvok grinned as he took a bite out of the little, blue sponge cake."Thank you, Medic..."
This Cake Is Not A Lie
Kaleidoscope Tekulo posted a topic in General ArtJust a little something I did for one of my classes. We had to do a children's celebration cake, and my mind immediately went to the year 2001. And, here are some kanohi I did around the border. I decided to go with a golden color, just to give a little contrast to the green and because I thought it fit with the theme of a canister. ^^ Keep in mind this was for a class, so I had a time limit. I really didn't get to spend as much time on this as I would have liked, and I am aware of a lot of mistakes in this (and I didn't have any references for the masks, so I had to pretty much wing it when I got to doing them. Edit: I did, however, have a reference for Lewa and a small set with me to help figure out the pieces -so technically I did have a Miru reference as well, but I had no access to any other masks- Sorry for any confusion ^^' ) I really wish I had more time for this. =/ The decorations were done in marzipan, the cake and lettering was done with buttercream icing. Hope you enjoy. ^^
