*perks up* May I ask about that multichaptered fic that I read about, with Lewa and Onua as the OT pairing?
Anonymous

Eeeeeurrrrrrghhhhhh.  Here’s the thing: I’d love to write a longer Lewa/Onua fic, and I even had some story beats worked out.  (Spherus Magna, new threats, Bahrag willing to be allies but needing the Toa to provide a commander for the swarms now that all the Kal are gone, I think you see where this is going)

But writing takes time, and with life right now that’s not something I have as much of as I’d like. I know that’s the world’s oldest excuse, and I wish I could do more - I see people churning out so much great Bionicle stuff these days compared to when I first got on Tumblr - but it’s just the way things are for me right now.  I’m glad to hear interest in it, though! I wish I had better news for you.

Maybe you should write these scenes then?

If inspiration strikes, maybe I will.  But one thing I try to keep in mind is “does it need to be written?” Or better worded, do I think I can add to it beyond the base concept?

Like, there’s a lot of one-line story ideas that give feels, but if I’m going to write about them I want to make sure the reader’ll get at least a bit more out of my written version of it than the one-line concept itself gives them.

(In a perfect world, at least.  Sometimes you just go ahead and run with it because why the hell not.)

Imagine everyone's relief and joy when Lewa finalles comes home to them, whether someone else fetches him or he had some misadventures escaping the Agori and coming to Spherus Magnus. My favorite ideas are that even Kopaka shows some joy and does a fist-bump with his brother, while Onua is internally vibrating after hearing the news and going as fast as possible to see Lewa for himself.

Anon you say this like I don’t already imagine this on a regular basis

Also acceptable: Onua winds up in the group visiting these Agori in the first place and he walks into the village and sees Lewa being held captive and he’s just like what and Lewa’s just like yeah it happened again and though the Agori might not understand what the hell the Toa are talking about let me tell you Onua’s death glare transcends language barriers:

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that not only does Onua dual-wield tunnel-digging chainsaws as a Nuva, he actually rides them like skis.
That’s pretty impressive.

I just pictured Onua sweeping someone off their feet while riding his chainsaw-skis just super casual and the world is a little bit brighter now

I know the feeling the anon has about being a 'comic book writer just for the sake of a favorite character to pull them back' (and I want to turn Vakama back into a Toa). I think the Toa Metru still had a lot to learn, which was cut short with their new responsibilities as Turaga, and they still haven't dealt with their issues, like Vakama's inability to trust others with his burdens or Nuju's contempt for the mistakes they made as Toa.

The Turaga are really an interesting case, I think.  As Turaga they had some individual quirks, but by and large were just the “wise elders” of the storyline, without all that much personality shining through.  Then 2004 showed us them at their youngest, most inexperienced, and most unique.

So how do you reconcile the two? 2005 doesn’t really quite do it - there’s some development for the team, but it’s overshadowed by half a dozen plotlines of HORDIKA RAGE.

I don’t know if I’d say they haven’t dealt with their issues - they had a thousand years to make peace with them - but I agree that they kind of get the short end of the character stick by being Turagized so quickly.

I sometimes feel as if I'm a comic book writer who creates a new-timeline AU, just so I can put my favorite Metru Turaga character back in peril when their character arc is 'finished' so to say. And on top of that, I turn them back into a Toa. *hides face*

I’m not certain why I’m getting this but if people want to turn this blog into “bionicle fanfiction confessions” I will happily take on that role

(also it’s okay Anonymous, we all have our ridiculous fic contrivances for the sake of our favorite characters.  it’s what makes us human.  that and the canonized romance.)
