Kerora - Loss
I didn't know how, but I wasn't going to let him leave. He always thinks he can do these things by himself, but he's wrong. Or maybe I'm wrong. I don't know. All I know is that he's my family. My only family. My brother trudged through the dark, metallic cavern. Our home. In the old days, they called these caves the "Suvas". This was the last one left of them. It was cold as ice, and smelled the way blood tastes.
           "Please, brother... You can't go out there..." I desperately reached toward him, resting my hand on his back. His body was warm, with passion, or anger, I couldn’t tell. But it felt as though he were a furnace’s flame in this winter cold. He shrugged me off. "You can't talk me out of this, Kerora. You're not going to." He paused. "But you don't-" I attempted to protest, cut off by his sharp words. "I've talked to you about this. You knew this time would come, and I know you don’t want to accept it. But now it's here, a

So hey, I know I've been fairly inactive lately, but I've been thinking about different things I'd like to do, one in particular I will discuss in this journal.
But before I do, I wanted it to be known that I have a tumblr page (jiratenathereenagahd) where I plan on posting artwork among other things, as well as a blog for my parody character Bitl, where she posts some strange and off-putting things she finds on the internet to discuss. She is very harsh, but it's part of her character, and whatever she may do doesn't necessarily reflect my own views.
Check it out if you like smartass commentary.
Anyways, I want to make one last contribution to Bionicle, and that is a re-telling of the 2001 story arc, the very beginning of the Bionicle series. I'd rather not give a lot of details regarding this, but I will disclose some important points: 1. I want to write this in a cinematic style. I feel like Bionicle could work extremely well as a modern movie, despite the chances of such a thing being far too slim. The Ghost animations conveyed the universe well, and that is the tone I wish for this reboot to take. 2. I plan on completing this story by 2020. That's a good long while from now, yes, but I want this to be good. I want this to be a labor of love that I can be satisfied in releasing as my goodbye to the fiction. Why that year? Well, it's going to be Bionicle's 20th anniversary. That's perfect. I grew up with Bionicle, and it followed me throughout my life up to this moment. I want to do it justice. It helped introduce so many things to me in my early years. Mechanisms, creativity, heroes, corruption, sacrifice, redemption, and, for the very first time, I felt a connection with a fictional character. All because Lego took a chance. A great chance. It wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it was damn good. In a way, maybe it's for the best it's not around again. I'd rather retain my warmest memories of a great series than become jaded with it turning into something lackluster.
This story will be a tribute to everything Bionicle gave me, everything it helped me overcome, everything that helped make me the person I am today. It was a huge part of me, one that tears me to let go of. But the time comes to move on.
Years from now, I'd like to look back at the story I create and smile.
To be content with my final foray into the world of Bionicle.
That got really sappy, and I apologize for that. But I am very excited to make something great, as a thank you to the Bionicle series.
But yeah, sorry about the wall of text. I hope this year brings happiness to all, and I hope my content is enjoyable for everyone who's stayed with me all this time.
And... thank you for that. Thank you all so much.
I've been meaning to tell you this.
Now that the new year has begun, I've had second thoughts about abandoning this profile. It's never been something I enjoy, and I don't like giving up on things.
But I have bad news. I'm not going to be posting any more MOCs. As I said, I unfortunately lack the time and creativity with it as of late. But, I instead will be using this profile for another passion of mine: photography and drawing. I'm always taking pictures, and I feel this would be perfect for this page. And, I can use this as a back-up for what
Jira 3.0 (My Last MOC) (please read description)
...until further notice. I've been dead for a long while now, and I'm sorry about that. Work, classes, and my personal life have been taking up my time.
Now, my parts aren't exactly as readily available to me as they once were, and I plan on eventually selling them anyway.
If you asked my parents, they would probably say this was the end of a long phase, a sign of growing up. But... personally, I see it more as me just... giving up. I used to find joy in building, creating and coming up with new ideas, but... those days are evidently gone. While I can't speak for the future, it seems likely this will be my final creation, and what better note to end on than the perfect representation of my Self-MOC...? I'm sorry guys. Every comment, every favorite, every watcher... It really means the world to me. I may post my drawings on here, among other things, but... for now, I think this might be goodbye.
Until next time...
