Tell Your Story

“What a month. I hope you’ve all enjoyed Cecilie and myself duking it out.

Cecilie, you are freakin amazing and built so many things that made my jaw hit the floor. You didn’t let up for a minute, and beat me to a couple really cool ideas.

As for me, I have one last offering, directed at the audience. We’ve told our stories this month with build after build…now it’s time for you to tell yours.”

Gundam

“You look like you’re in quite the pinch over there, but I’ve got just the guy to come get you out of that.”

Alien

“The other side of the coin. You’ve been pretty quiet, so I assume you’ve either been eaten by a xenomorph, or are about to do something amazing.”

To Catch a Rat…

“Holy crap, is that some sort of Norwegian super-rodent?! You’ll need a big trap to catch one of those if they ever infest your house. Something like this.”

Roadkill

“That would be nice, then I don’t have to feel so bad about poor Pikachu here. Hope it wasn’t yours.”

Neo

“Silver lining: maybe this is all just a simulation? It’d be cooler if I knew Kung Fu.”

Right to Assemble

“Hard to stay home these days, on this side of the pond…but if you’re doing some reading, I’d suggest a lighthearted little tale called 1984.”

“Careful with those, or the next funeral might be yours.”
