About this creation
The Tale of Two Cities

Full disclaimer, I have yet to read the book, though I do plan to.

My friend came over a week or so ago on Wednesday, which was a snow day. A few years ago he entered his dark ages, but for whatever reason he felt like building that day, so we did. At first he said that he was simply going to build a small base of peaceful civilians, but then it evolved when I got interested and wanted a turn. I started building on the other side. When my brother came in I was already building a river, but I asked him to anyway, to divide our two cities. I don't know when I originally came up with the idea of calling it "The Tale of Two Cities" but it quickly became Paris and London.

My friend and I decided his all black side would be London, because it is dreary, and I started building the artsy side as the French. It is all hopefully in good fun. I invite anyone to build a MOC about America and its bad ideals ;)

Overall. I told my brother that he could have a 2 by 2 pieces in the river and that he's have to build up. That was that he was on no one's side. I took it down for a majority of the photos because his side was a joke, but I still left it up for two.

Photobucket

My brother's people were considered gods by my French.

London

All by my friend, I can't take any credit for it.

British Stoners

The Sleeping Area. The Twins/Common British

The Movies and Camera Gun Thing

Photobucket

Leader and Leader's Chamber

'Nother View

Third View

Guns Master

The Windows were originally the computer, before my brother made a joke at my fried expense. "Why do they stare at glass all day?" He asked jokingly. My friend built another computer and called the glass guy their insane member.

Photobucket

The French have the Grim Reaper on their side. I added this after my friend left.

Photobucket

You can see he's followed by the French colors.

Paris

According to my friend, who is a history expert, the French aren't good at anything. Every time I asked him, he's say no. For example; "Are their police good?" "No." "How about their government?" "No."


Photobucket

The Gardens.

Photobucket

The Patriots

Photobucket

The Feux British. This was maybe my favorite idea that came out of the build. The Feux British are the torturers of the people, and the monsters in your closet. Used to cause fear and hate of the British.

Photobucket

The General. You can see the French Wealth in a Basket behind him. He's on the Pier... not that the River's wide enough for any boats. One of the jokes were that my French-a-likes were kinda stupid.

Photobucket

The Wishing Wells. The French need money to you know. When I built that figure, I told my friend "France's main import is Women."

Photobucket

Another joke about the Wells was that the French were stupid enough to throw away their money even though they could see the bottom. Poor Wishing Well Women.

Photobucket

The Police Chief and The Artist. The Police Chief was meant to look like the worst possible chief ever, and Te Artist originally had a yellow flower to fit in with his skin, like his head grew very weird.

Photobucket

His Painting.

Photobucket

French King.

Photobucket

The Police Chief is in love with Wishing Well Women. This also shows some of the French building skill.

Over all a really fun build. Maybe not the best, but very fun to do, and photograph, and I loved the ideas. I may do this for other countries later on. In fact, don't do America, I want to.
