Sweet sixteen, baby...sweet sixteen...You asked for it, so here it is!
About this creation
Trust me, building this was more painful than you can imagine... I'll start by saying, truthfully, that this whole shinanigan was rushed. Yeah, it snuck up on me. I think that it's best if I apologize in advance about the quality of the photos. Just try to enjoy, and for your own good, don't click on the photos. ...yeah, I know, this whole intro is an excuse, and I won't deny it. Constructive criticism is always welcome.
Rory wasn't like the other chickens...
"I awoke this morning, greeted by the over-purified air of the five star hotel room. My vision was blurred and I only wished I was in my old bed-a straw mattress in the barn I was raised in. I sighed as I thought about the upcoming events of the day.
"Another day in the life of fame, another day wasted...
"I recalled the emotions on the faces of the fans that I saw yesterday. They cheered me like a hero...why? I am no hero. I'M A ROOSTER. To them I may be an idol, but really, I'm just a normal farm animal. I may have played the role of Rory in some film, but I am nothing special. I don't want to be!
I wanted to escape and return home...I missed the smell of the crisp, fresh morning air...the breeze that used to tingle my feathers...I missed home...
"I awoke and waddled over my belongings. As usual, Heather was waiting for me. She waxed my beak like she does every morning, and brushed my feathers like she does every morning.
"I ate the same tasteless breakfast like I do every morning. I missed the real stuff...I have no taste for this 'ice cream' and 'pizza'. And as usual, Heather threw out the yucky stuff.
"There is a whole world out there, waiting to be discovered...I want live a life of adventure and leave this dump people call 'the film industry'. It's time for the world to meet the real Rory Rooster!
"And so I flapped my way out of the hotel. I escaped and clucked in happiness as I saw the building grow smaller and smaller behind me.
"I clucked in exhaustion as I paused in an alleyway...something caught my attention. I wondered if I could make use of what what I saw..."
Kelso: I'll hand it to ya' Chucky, your acting may have been mediocre garbage, but I'm a huge fan of the wardrobe!"
*sigh* Ok, really MARK. Could you please step out of the line and let the next person come get their autograph?
Kelso: OK, OK, tough guy. Well Chrispy, we got what we came for, I guess. Lets roll, before little mista' tough boy gets ANGRY!
Anyway, Chucky, better luck on your next flop!
Kelso: ...did ya notice that lady in the line? Her name's Heather and she gave ME HER number! I told her I'd call her tonight, but guess what? I'm not going to, hee hee hee! Isn't that funny?!
Mall Security Gaurd One: Excuse me sirs. Would one of you happen to be a certain Mr. Kelso?
Kelso: Yeah, boy I'm the one and only! Mark Kelso, builder of the "Invisible Hand", God of LEGO, king of the...
Mall Security Guard Two: Yeah, we've got the little trouble-maker, over.
Kelso: Errr...uhhh...I was, er, just KIDDING! Heh heh, I'm Bob, uhh, Bob Saget! Yeah, that's who I am!
Chuck: You know where punks like you end up?
Chuck: You wanna' know? Their faces end up in my FIST!
Wow! What will happen next?! Let's just say that it's time for Rory to meet his maker...Shannon Young! You're IT, and there's nothin' you can do except BUILD! Well, Shannon, can you find it in your heart to forgive my rulebreaking? I only used 40 lines! In YOUR MOCtag, YOU can prove that it's possible to write only four lines.
Will Rory ever return home and escape the film industry? Will anything happen to Kelso and Phipson? You'll have to visit Shannon to find out!
Fourth Wall Commentary:
Well, that was my contribution to the MOCtag series. So many "leave the dead rest" comments; it's driving me crazy. Anyway, that's about twenty pounds off my back. Trust me, MOCtag is not all fun and games...it's a monster...a sleep-depriving monster! I, once again, apologize for the photos that are low quality. This project was, unfortunately, rushed. Well, they say you can't rush perfection, but I don't consider this perfect at all...it's out of my hands now...let's see what you can do to the series that you started, Shannon!
Very nice extension of this exciting story. The builds are all fantastic, and I love the twist (that happened somewhere along the way) that the whole beginning of the story was a MOVIE. I was really surprised when I found that out. Marvelous job!
I must admit that I don't understand the story anymore (since a long time lol) - But your pics are so cool ! The bed is a masterpiece and I love the car too. Great job !
PS sorry if I hadn't comment on your previous MOCs but I had troubles with Internet, and I'm unfortunately very very busy... I'll see them all
soon. Keep on the great work !
Awesome save. The story is the perfect save. Heather set you up to save Rory, and then you saved the story. It simply would not be MOCtag without Rory, but you're reinveted the character, so it's all good! Young, (insert tastless smack here). Didn't you READ the rules? It's a 40 minimum... oh... 4 line maximum... nevermind.
You know Youngy, I don't even have to make up a female name for you! Hee hee hee! How does it feel? Ooooh, I'm sowwy Shannon, did I huwt your feewings? Man up and show me what you got SHANNON! I have very high expectations.
Nicole - as pathetic as this excuse for a MOC? Haha! BURN!!! You may try and smack back on #17 when it comes out... if you dare!

I TRIED Shannon! I TRIED! I knew mine was going to look lazy and pathetic with that meager amount of lines but, doggonit, I was willing to take the shame to please you. You sure are crotchety for someone so YOUNG. Dangit! Phone's ringing! Could be him!
Nice MOCtag, but seriously, I've seen enough of Rory.

What kinda punk thinks he can take my number and never call. Time to bust out the big guns. Anyhoo...This is great! I love that you broke the rules. It's too difficult to tell a story in four lines or less. I guess we'll see if it really can be done *ahem, Shannon. I've gotta go now and wreak some mortal carnage on...wait the phone's ringing! It could be him! ;) Keep It SNOTty Sir!
Why can't I be more like Firas, or Apple? I just demand more of myself, that's all. Ooooh! That's gotta hurt! If you can't take the smack, get off the page! Man up Nick, or should I say Nicole! You break my rules, I break your balls! That's the deal! There's no crying in MOCtag!
Okay for starters, I tried calling that number Heather gave me and got the Chinese Cross-dressers In Crisis hotline...very funny Braaten! (I knew it was too good to be true!) Second, thanks for all the back-up there Phipson while I was getting a personal a** beating. (So much for all our years of martial arts training). Well Nickre, I can't say I'm glad to see Rory back in action AGAIN, but you definitely went "no holds barred" on the build and the story, so props there! Now, Shannon...show us how it's done!!!
Geez, Young can be a little tough at times...well, way to stick it to da man! I personally think it takes way more than 4 lines. if it only had 4 an episode, it would take years to finish this story!!! Nice work, this is one of my favorite MOCtags so far. keep up the excellent work!
i don't think that its even possible to make this GREAT story in 4 lines! this is just a great story and a great build as well!! i don't really think that its a problem to make it more than 4! since its funny and nice like your's! you ROCK my man and this is just very great and high quality in EVERYTHING! keep it up buddy.. peace.. fofo
Well Shannon, I don't doubt it's possible to do a MOCtag in four lines or less. I just did not WANT to, ya know what I'm sayin'. By the way, Mr. Young, you did not even say a simple, "nice job Nick" or a "these photos are w*rse quality than a Chuck Norris joke. You can tell this was made by a n00b!"
Way to not even TRY to keep it in the neighborhood of four lines. The first few people managed to play by the rules, and their entries were top notch, not only build-wise but story-wise. I guess that's what separates the men from the boys (and girl). Time to restore some sanity. The main reason I agreed to be tagged when I already have a lot on my Lego plate is to prove to the "Oh, it can't be done! It's too hard!" crowd that yes, you CAN do a MOCtag in four lines or less. Watch and learn, crybabies.
holy!!! omg!! dude!! my most favorite so far!! (sorry heather) and that ride! its so awesome!! so sleek!! dude you keep getting better! the front pic is just too cool also! actually everytihng in this moc is just too cool!!!...dang man you really kicked it up a notch with this one!! keep it up and youll be as known as kelso...peace...
As much as other people may be sick of it, I'm glad to see rory again. Well played Sir. I remember in #2 that rory was a movie star, so what a plot twist! Bravo. Oh yeh, great build and story btw. Time for unlucky #17.
Really? Shannon Young has been tagged? That can mean only one of two things... and the second isn't good. You did a nice job here Nick. I mean sure, you stretched the 40... I mean 4 line rule a bit but you wouldn't be the first. Quality builds, cohesive story, recurring characters. You got it all. And um, Shannon... please don't write those two little words that only you can write. ~ Chris.
