"The Mask of Light chose me! I’m the true herald!"

"Okay listen here you suicidal little shit I didn’t blow off that date with Hahli earlier to watch your adrenalin junkie ass almost drown in a river of lava while dicking around with some rocks and then have your self conscious ass turn around on me and decide you’ve built a pair and are gonna fight off these spawns of Makuta and leave me to die like what were you even looking for back there was it this old ass mask is your Great Kanohi of Eyebrow Game not good enough do you think its easy playing Robot Lacrosse with a guy who backflips and twists his spine 720 degrees for like no reason and still misses and we get beat by the Ga-Matoran like dude that Kohlii field is brand spanking new we spent like a thousand years playing in that one pit full of Fikou spiders and putting up with poisoned balls and shit while you were running around doing Mata Nui knows what with a bunch of stones like is that all you care about are you trying to tell me you’re some kinda stoner or something cause Im starting to think this relationship isn’t gonna work out if you keep this shit up I mean really we needed an adult to dive in there and save your life like what is Turaga Vakama gonna say and dont give me that "be responsible" crap you know full well he’s gonna tell you to calm down and stand in the corner for a hundred years just so you dont like break anything I swear dude we’ve been in Kini Nui for like 2 minutes and you’ve already managed to blow something up and accidentally carve your big dumb face onto a giant rock so that nobody on Mata Nui could ever forget your ridiculous lava hopscotching mug ‘cause terrorizing Ash Bears and pissing off a ton of Rahkshi wasn’t good enough for you like are you a hundred percent sure you’re the true herald for this mask cause Im pretty sure youre a herald of disaster I swear Takua I am so sick of your reckless nonsense I cant even—"

Did Vakama actually reveal all the events of Time Trap or was that just a flashback, and he was dismissive when the other Turaga asked?

That was just a flashback, yes.

It didn’t actually say anything about the aftermath of that, nor was there any mention of the Turaga talking about it either. He probably told them everything (minus the deal he made with Makuta) since he was gone for so long and probably looking pretty ragged after all he’s been through. They’d all be worried about him. But I’m thinking that he didn’t mention The Shadowed One either because that would open up a whole new can of worms, finding out that there’s more danger other than Makuta and all that.

For those interested, here’s a full gloss for Gali Nuva’s quote, with notes. I’ve split it into 4 chunks:

1.

i-makuta-ou        akai     seya   ki     jaui     o-pa

of-makuta-you   it.OBJ   think   that  weak   we-PRS

"You Makuta think that we’re weak"

Notes:

- The complex i-makuta-ou would translate literally to “you of Makuta”.

2.

ta         o      pira-o             rakha-rhu

bcse.   we   enemy-our   kill-NEG

"because we don’t kill our enemies."

Notes:

- The verb rakha has been coined as an equivalent of “kill”, “to cause to be in a state of system-abnormality”

3.

arakai   ivaka              lahi-se

killing    sometimes   mercy-POSSIB

"But sometimes, killing can be mercy."

Notes:

The noun arakai “killing” is derived from an older stage of rakha, *rakayaraka-ia > a-raka-i > arakai.

- The modifier ivaka ”sometimes” derives from the complex i-vaki-a "lit. ‘during part of time’", from vaki ”lit. ‘part-of-time’” and the circumfix i-…-a “in, at, on; during”.

4.

ivaka    i-rara-nohi  ki    ou   pira-i        kya-vo    i-kau-ai-aki-pa

smtms. of-bad-thg  that you enemy-to do-ABIL  of-life-her-initiative-PRS

Literal: “Sometimes [the thing-of-most-badness that you can do to enemy] (is) [initiating-of-her-life]”

Orig: “Sometimes the worst thing you can do to an enemy is let her live.”

Notes:

- The complex i-rara-nohi is a compound consisting of ra-ra, a reduplication of ra “system-abnormality”, meaning “very bad, most badness” and nohi, used as a generic term for “thing” (although this would imply a physical thing). 

- The complex i-kau-ai-aki is also a compound and should be divided as follows: [[i-kau-ai]-aki], with a possessive suffix -ai attached to kau “life process”.

Finally I post a thing. Sorry for the lack of art, y’all! My life has been incredibly packed for the last more than a month, really, as a result of which I’ve been left totally drained. I also have a couple other design projects going on that have been sucking my creativity, as well as some drawing for work, which is awesome. But now we’re finally in the slow season at work so I’ll hopefully be back in action more soon.
I really need to do the one-quick-sketch-a-day thing again. That was good for me.

I thought about how Matoran absorb energy with their hands to “eat” something. Then I thought about their diet which consists of fruit, berries, and fish

What if after they absorb energy from a Ruki fish and after they’re done “eating” it the fish just lays there on the ground desperately trying to flop itself into water but it has no energy, leaving it motionless and probably causing it to die a slow death on land

WHAT IF MATORAN COULD ALSO BE CANNIBALISTIC AND ABSORB ENERGY FROM ANOTHER MATORAN AND THE VICTIM DIES THE SAME WAY AS THE FISH BUT WITHOUT THE NEED OF WATER THEY JUST LAY THERE AND DIIIIIEEEEE

For Faber, the inspiration for this new, illustrated narrative came from his recently diagnosed brain tumor. The tumor was benign, but it would spread if he didn’t take a daily injection of medication.

Reflecting on the illness that fired his imagination, Faber “had the thought that when I took these injections, I was sending a little group of soldiers into my body, fighting on my behalf to rebuild my system. Then it all just came together.”

Faber imagined the toy canisters as vials of medicine drifting toward the head of a giant, comatose robot that was infected with a virus. The medicine’s active ingredient was an army of nano-size creatures that arrived in pill-shaped capsules, entered the titan’s body, and fought to liberate it from the virus. The story played out in a microscopic world, but for its “part-organic, part-machine” inhabitants, the scale was sweepingly vast.

Faber provided visual depictions of the island and its inhabitants and also suggested to his colleagues at LEGO a name for the new toy: Bionicle, a combination of the words biological and chronicle .

-Excerpt from Brick by Brick by David C. Robertson, on the creation of Bionicle.

I did not know this. It’s nice to know that the big twist was planned from the beginning, and it makes all the design choices feel so much more meaningful.

I just want to say that when you reblog my stuff, it's like getting noticed by senpai.

Aaaaaaah thank you, anon! My night has been made!

You Makuta think we’re weak because we don’t kill our enemies. But sometimes, killing can be a mercy. Sometimes the worst thing you can do to an enemy is let her live.
