Originally created in March 2008, Galinhad was my first ever MOC on MOCages. Tanggri was created recently as an entry for TML's "Gender Bender" contest, and has then worked her way into my Spherus Magna storyline along with most of my old 2008 Bio-MOCs.
This particular page was made for the "I Love You" contest hosted by Peter Crasher. The contest ends on July the 31st if anyone else wants to enter.

(The following comes from the point of view of Cydroc. The individual pages of Galinhad and Tanggri will give you a fair background to this.)
I traced a claw over the grooves in the Skrall-Shield in front of me, the digit winding its way through the miniature valley-maze to the center and back again. The sun was setting through the open tent flap and I could hear the sounds of the woodland around me waking up. I could feel the animal urges within me again, talling me to run, hunt, kill. I ignored them, as I do constantly, waiting.
Although perhaps it would have been better if the man I was waiting for could control his.
Galinhad and I have been best friends for centuries, since before we founded the BIA. That was back when Makuta Teridax was still alive, and now here I was on a renewed Spherus Magna, surrounded by trees. Galinhad, I knew, was off with that girl again, even though he had told me he was looking for firewood with her. They had been gone for two hours, and in all honesty we had anough firewood piled up outside to last us at least a week.
Tanggri was her name. She was a friend of mine as well, don't get me wrong. After all, it is she who introduced us to the Knights, and let Hceat and Galinhad become toa. Daughter of Gringat the airlord if I remember correctly.
I heard heavy footsteps outside, and quickly pretended to be asleep. It was him, with the girl on his shoulders. They were talking quietly to themselves, and I head her giggle as he set her down, stoking the fire with a small branch. The two had really become inseperable recently. Then the two departed and Tanggri headed over to her own, private tent. Galinhad stomped over towards mine and noisily clattered onto the bedroll next to mine, gazing upwards. My expression must have set him off. His tone was... drifty, a smile sweeping across his face.
"Ahh... that Tanggri... She's something ain't she?"
"Whatever you say brother. Try not to talk about her in your sleep again this time, hm?"
"Eh? What? I don't... Do I...?"
I chuckled. "Rest, brother. Tomorrow shall be difficult I am sure. The Skakdi have bested us before...
On a side-note, Galinhad and Tanggri's relationship has an added bonus - their mask powers interact too. Galinhad's Great Ruru allows him and any he touches to see in the dark and through solid objects. Tanggri's Great Kualsi allows her and any she touches to teleport to anywhere she can see. Therefore, together, they can teleport through walls, etc, which would be pretty awesome.
I like these alot. I left a thorough review on your youtube vid for Tangggri, but I can't say I'm too fond of Galinhad. I dunno' what it is, but he seems almost... like a beefy midget. =P He seems too short to be so bulky, and IMO it doesn't look good. I've always been one for the lean, tall heroes rather than the short and stalky. He's still an excellent MOC, but just not to my personal liking. Hordika dude's epic aswell. Good luck in the contest, man!
