Ankella, Toa of Coal
My Entry for Gringat's Christmas Toa Contest! Enjoy the whimsical poetry format!
About this creation

There once was a Toa, by the name of Ankella

Who had all his armor stripped from him by a nasty ol' fella.

And so walked a skeletal figure down the way,

In the hopes of a bright, cheery Christmas day.

Upon the morning of, he awoke with great cheer,

In the belief that Saint Nick had recently been here.

But alas! Twas nothing under the tree.

"I'll check my stocking!" he announced with pure glee.

As he poured out the contents of his winter delight,

He stood there is shock from the awful sight.

Twas not the armor he had wanted so dear,

But it was coal! Ankella merely shed a tear.

And more tears soon followed as he sat in the corner,

And he soon became a Christmas day mourner.

And as he did weep, a figure did approach,

Cloaked in red and white did the figure encroach.

Twas Santa Nui! The jolly old Saint!

His mood is unhappy; certainly it ain't!

He asked: "And what is the matter, on this lovely Christmas morn?"

And that's when Ankella was filled utterly with scorn!

"It was you and your coal! I definitely mistrusted

That you could bring me armor, whether new or rusted!"

Santa Nui replied with a look of surprise,

"Did you not like the coal? Why do you despise?

Your element is coal; my reasoning is this!"

Ankella replied: " That doesn't mean it gives me bliss!"

Santa Nui, at a bow of his head, realized his fault,

"Allow me to bring this disaster to a halt."

With a touch of his nose, and a clap of his hands,

Santa Nui did bring, so as he understands,

The armor that Ankella had wanted, plus more!

A Kanohi Kiril and two arm-blades for war,

And some friends; Gringat (without hands) and Aridike.

And, as Santa Nui said: "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

BARON's Notes:

Yeah, I know that you get to see some spoilers of the BARON's upgrades to Toa-hood, and my dub of Gringat's self-MOC, but, ah well. Still entertaining.

And yes, Gringat, I did have to take the only set of red glatorian hands I had from you, but don't worry, you'll get them back. ;)


Santa Nui: Santa Nui is now LEAVING town! Ho Ho!

Well, A Merry Christmas to all MOCers, the tall and the small!

Be Generous this Holiday Season and Leave a Comment, one and all!

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant Know, though, that if you do get one of the three prizes, I don't have an orange noble Ruru.
Gasp! Ah, well. I supose any Orange mask would do, or even a different colored noble Ruru. As long as there's the robotic eye, etc, S'all good. :D

Gringat says he'd rather have matoran hands anyway - and nice one on recreating Santa-Nui as well. My MOCs are recurring everywhere now. The format is clever, and I wish you good luck in the contest. Know, though, that if you do get one of the three prizes, I don't have an orange noble Ruru.
