Greetings. These are quick banners, nothing too fancy. Each one features a major character in my ongoing epic, Tahu vs. Tahu, where reader choices heavily impact the course that the story takes. Some of these are already in use; others will be used in an official capacity once the plotlines featuring that specific character start to come into focus. There are a few other banners waiting in the works, but they would spoil upcoming stuff and as such are not shared here. If you have any critique or comments, feel free to post it! Banner #1: Tahu Okoto Obviously, in an epic titled "Tahu vs. Tahu", characters named "Tahu" are relevant. Tahu Okoto here is the poster boy of the epic; he features in the big huge banner (alongside Tahu Mata - more on that below), and this banner here is the one currently active in my signature. Tahu Okoto (alongside the rest of his team) has mysterious traveled back in time five years from 2015 to 2010; however, they have lost their memories. Tahu Okoto finds himself locked in the middle of a civil war, and must find a way to lead the sets following him to victory while also attempting to regain his memories and uncover the true reason for his trip back in time. Banner #2: Tahu Mata As another "Tahu", Tahu Mata is the (former?) leader on the Bionicle sets living in the House, having led them for ten years from 2001-2010, as well as one of the titular Tahus of the "Tahu vs. Tahu" title. Recent events have seen him possibly deposed by Tahu Stars. Despite this, Tahu Mata does have one advantage: his allies are all both fierce and loyal, and Tahu Okoto has publicly declared his allegiance to Tahu Mata as well. The image used in the banner does have a purpose in the storyline, and in fact is a major plot point that will kickstart Tahu Mata's personal storyline in the epic. To say anything more would be to spoil the surprise, however, so I shall stop there! Banner #3: Tahu Stars The third "Tahu" so far to feature heavily in the epic, and the other titular "Tahu" of the epic's title. Tahu Stars has only just arrived in the House, but his arrival (and subsequent aggressive attempt to seize control) has gained him a large following from sets who are sick of Tahu Mata's rule. He cares little for the time travelling sets, and considers Tahu Okoto to be inferior to himself. Despite this, Tahu Stars is very quick to act, and will resort to battle before almost any other alternative; this will undoubtedly become extremely troublesome in the future, and the consequences of his actions may turn out to be rather dire. Banner #4: Gali Okoto As one of the quieter members of the time-travelling Toa Okoto, Gali Okoto is easily missed among the other louder sets. There is a group within the House known as the "Blue League", which strives to retain a neutral perspective while they observe and document events; Gali Okoto will certainly prove to be a useful member of the team, should she be inducted. Banner #5: Pohatu Okoto Pohatu Okoto was the second of the Toa Okoto to be opened (the first being Tahu Okoto), and is perhaps the loudest of the bunch. He often voices questions or concerns that the others might keep silent, and will freely comment on current events. He has rapidly grown close with Tahu Okoto, and the two are rarely seen separated from each other. While Tahu Okoto has no official "second in command", Pohatu Okoto might be the closest thing. Banner #6: Kopaka Okoto Kopaka Okoto is both a fierce and imposing presence, both stoic and strong. He rarely agrees with either Tahu Okoto or Pohatu Okoto, and considers them to be foolish and obnoxious. With Tahu Okoto's decision to ally with Tahu Mata having caused the team to be locked in the House's prison, Kopaka Okoto's time following the rest of the team might be at an end. Banner #7: Onua Okoto Onua Okoto, to be quite frank, might be the only character featured on these banners to serve more of a supporting role within the story. He is wise and strong, but also silent, rarely choosing to speak; as such, his opinions are often unknown, making him a bit of a wild card. I currently have no active plans for Onua Okoto; for now, I am leaving him open in case inspiration strikes, or in case he is required due to the choices that the readers make. Banner #8: Lewa Okoto Lewa Okoto has one of the most important roles in the story; some of you might remember that on my blog several months ago, I mentioned a project called 4 and a Half Lewas. I deleted the entry when I decided not to pursue the project further, opting to instead devote my time to other things. However! The major plot points of the cancelled 4 and a Half Lewas are being resurrected in Tahu vs. Tahu, and Lewa Okoto will, as planned, be the main star, making them one of the most important characters of the epic. There is also something more unique about Lewa Okoto; although the official character is male, and this character started as such, this Lewa Okoto actually identifies as female. At the moment I am unsure how much of an impact this will have on the epic, although that is because I have no official outline (the reader choices make having a proper outline for the story beyond broad "start here / get here / end here" points impossible), and cannot predict where the story will go. --- So those are the eight (current) banners for Tahu vs. Tahu, as well as some brief words on why each character was selected. Feel free to post any critique or whatever below (or just admire how Kopaka Okoto perfectly matches the colors for the logo)(can you call that a logo?)

Upon your arrival I had hoped that we could become allies, perhaps even friends. Unfortunately, this has turned out not to be the case. Before this civil war escalates beyond our control, I have written this as a request for peace in the hopes that you will see your errors and correct them. I will re-iterate that I have no problems giving you control of the Bionicle sets, but to do through violent means is a big “no” in my books. Send a reply with the confirmation of peace and we’ll settle this the old fashioned way with a vote. Or you can continue to be manipulated by your troops, many of whom were in jail for a REASON, Tahu Stars. Reasons I hope that, regardless of any decisions past this point, you will consider and acknowledge before replacing the sets in question back where they belong. If you do not, they could have catastrophic consequences. -Tahu Mata The AfterwordsPrologue: The Numbers Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning, No one could be sweeter than my sweetie when I meet her in the morning. Where the morning glories Twine around the door, Whispering pretty stories I long to hear once more. Strolling with my girlie where the dew is pearly early in the morning, Butterflies all flutter up and kiss each little buttercup at dawning, If I had Aladdin's lamp for only a day, I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say: Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning. “Turn that thing off already, for the name of Tohu. That song is too sad to be playing on a beautiful day such as this.” “Sorry about that. I like Trocadero.” “I don’t care who you like buddy, it’s the first day of spring – doesn’t Trocadero have anything more upbeat?” “Um... looks like we have Blood Gulch Blues on the iPod.” “Don’t you dare put that thing on, it’s almost as sad as this one. Wait, do you have the original version of this?” “Heck no, I hate jazz. I deleted every single jazz song they had on here... and that was a lot of songs. It took me almost four hours.” “Was the original version of this on there?” “Probably, considering how many songs they had. There were over three hundred.” “...I hate you sometimes.” “Somehow, I really do not care.” “Somehow, that doesn’t change the fact that I dislike you immensely.” “Somehow, that – you know what, no. I’m not getting into this catfight again.” “Suit yourself, Evo. Someday you’re gonna find that the iPod has nothing but jazz on it.” “Hey Rocka, you know what?” “What is it Evo?” “I hate you.” *-*-*-* Takanuva Stars, a primarily white set with both gray and silver armour as a secondary colour within his scheme, pointed his staff up towards the attic as he led a red set by the name of Furno through a tour of the house. “You see that trap door?” the white Toa asked. “Yes, obviously I can see it. Why are there scorch marks?” asked Furno. “That is for me to know and for you to never know or question again.” “I can tell that this is going to be an informative tour.” “I don’t get paid to do this. Excuse me if I take some liberties.” Furno rolled his eyes as they walked further down the hall, choosing to remain silent for several minutes until Takanuva Stars halted in front of a room that held a shining gold plaque. “The Bedroom...” Furno said, reading it. “It is arguably the most important room in the house.” Takanuva Stars explained. “Lewa Mata lives there, as do a majority of the sets... the good ones, at any rate. Before Lewa Mata was our leader... well, that’s not important.” “If it’s not important, why even mention it?” “Well, you see, sometimes a Toa slips up and says something he’s not supposed to. Then, when his leader discovers he said something wrong after the guy begins pestering everybody with questions, he tickles the offending slip-upper to death.” Furno opened his mouth to say something, but found that the statement was one he could not really find an appropriate response to. “That said, let’s forget this ever happened and move right along!” Takanuva Stars said, moving right along. “Alright then, I guess. The history lesson can wait until another time.” Furno said. The two slowly hopped down the stairwell, coming to a stop in front of a rather ominous looking door. In fact, it was so ominous that when Takanuva Stars told him to stay away, Furno slapped him across the face. “Of course I’m not going in there!” Furno cried out. “For goodness’ sake, I’m not a moron! Who wants to go on the other side of a door like that?! Where is that, anyway?!” Takanuva Stars glared at him and rubbed his mask. “That door opens up into the stairs that take you to the basement... not much ever happens down there, because most sets stay away from down there. Trust me. Some seriously creepy stuff has walked out of there.” “You don’t have to tell me twice.” Furno shuddered. “Seriously, you need to hire an interior decorator for this place. Scorched trap doors, ominous doors, creepy rooms, a broken time machine outside – HURK!” “What was that about a time machine?!” Takanuva Stars hissed, clutching Furno by the throat and glancing from side to side nervously. “Someone – mentioned that – it was – broken time machine.” Furno managed. “Can’t – remember who – it was.” Takanuva Stars let the Hero go, breathing in deeply and rolling his eyes. “Goodness Furno, don’t scare me like that.” He said. “Scare you like that?!” Furno yelled. “You throttled me a moment ago! Give me some warning next time!” “The point was sort of that you didn’t have any warning – you couldn’t fight back.” “...I hate you.” “Yeah well, so far I’m not too fond of you either. At least the other new sets don’t talk all the time.” “...yeah, you’d be surprised.” *-*-*-* “...so then I told him ‘Furno, you need to stop being such a lazy cow and go to Lewa Mata yourself. You aren’t going to be given a tour otherwise.’ He glared at me for a few seconds, which I suppose was a little scary, but then he just left without doing anything and I got to put on Season 6 instead of Season 3.” Evo said. “Hey Evo, you care to guess something?” “What is it Rocka?” “How much, on a scale of 1-100, do you think I care about your story that I was present in the room for?” “...hmm... that’s difficult to answer. Is it 68?” “It’s lower, you dolt. It’s far lower than that.” “Alright then, just give me a second. I’m gonna try and guess... 12?” “Try about -9, Evo.” “Ouch. That was harsh, Rocka. That was harsh. I think you may have hurt my feelings.” “Good, I was aiming to do that you fatty.” “That’s always assuming I actually consider your opinion to hold any value whatsoever.” “Ooh, getting aggressive are we? I’d take that as a threat if you were actually, you know, physically capable of lumbering more than four steps at a time.” “I’m not fat, stupid! Do you have any idea how heavy this stupid tank arm is?! I have nothing on the other side to even balance it with! So excuse me!” “Suddenly taking offense? I think you do consider my opinion after all!” Evo sighed and shook his head, plopping back down on the couch to continue watching the last few scenes of Season 6. Rocka chuckled and hopped over, poking Evo in the back with his crossbow and then jumping down to the floor with a very clear air of victory about him. Evo mumbled something unintelligible under his breath, and Rocka paused. “Would you care to repeat that for my ancient, withering ears?” “I said that someday I’ll find a way to beat you in one of those arguments.” “That is extremely unlikely, considering I’ve beaten you in all 16 of them so far.” “...I’m just gonna finish my show.” “You do that. Let me know how it works out for you once you’ve hit Season 9.” “What’s that supposed to mean?!” “Well, everyone who’s seen every season agrees that Season 9 sucks.” “Nothing could be worse than Season 3.” “At least Season 3 had a plot.” “...oh dear lord, you have to be kidding me.” “You know Evo, for once, I wish I was kidding. You’ll have to suffer through it on your own this time I’m afraid.” “I think I’ll finish this later. I need a bagel right now.” “See what I mean, fatso? Your solution to every problem – go to the fridge.” “No it isn’t, stupid!” “Give me one time it wasn’t.” “Rocka, how often do you find peanut butter and bagels in the fridge?” “...I’m just gonna let that one go.” *-*-*-* “Please remind me now why we have been staring at a melting pond for fifteen minutes.” Furno requested. “This is almost as bad as watching grass growing.” “Trust me, this isn’t anywhere near there. I would know.” Takanuva Stars replied. “I’m just seeing if I can spot anything.” “Like what?” “That is none of your business, newbie.” “If it’s none of my business, why did you drag me out to look for it with you?” “...shut up with your logic. We’re going back inside.” “That’s more like it! It’s disgusting out here... yuck. So much mud everywhere.” *-*-*-* Far above in the Bedroom, a green Toa watched the two sets leave the pool to return inside. He nodded slowly, lowering his axe down. “Be careful where you step with him, Takanuva.” Lewa Mata whispered. “I’m watching you.” “Who is that you’re watching, boss?” asked Berix, a blue Agori. “Can I watch them with you? It sounds creepy and fun.” Lewa Mata sighed, the moment and tone he’d been going for ruined. “No, Berix, you can’t. They’re already gone now, and you’re too weird to boot.” To Be Continued!
