Could I quickly edit my entry? I just realized I said Keelerahk (green Visorak) instead of Keerahk (white Vahki) *facepalm.* I thought I knew everything about Bionicle!

Honorable mentions go to "A Machine's Philosophy" by Dinobot Pahrak, and "Vahki" by Janus! 

 

Don't forget to enter the OTC FFFC, "Branching Out"! 

 

And once again, thanks to everyone who entered! There were a lot of entries this time, and we're really thankful for that.

I agree. Really puts the "Flash" in "Flash Fiction" :D

Just thought I'd throw together a second entry for no particular reason other than some random ideas bouncing around in my head. I probably have enough in there for a few more, but I'm too much of a procrastinator, and I have homework. At least I got under the word limit this time!

...What exactly does COT stand for?

 

COT stands for the Completely Off-Topic forum. OTC stands for Off-Topic Culture, the newly created forum for non-LEGO creative work (artwork, stories, RPGs, etc.) that were previously simply placed in the COT forum, but now have their own forum.
