Dagnabbit!
I wanted to post these myself, along with the story of Henry, chapters which occurred at my house... I finally got all the pics uploaded, over my slow internet connection, which took me two days, then it was Thanksgiving... was going to do it tonight, right now, but alas...

Let me answer first why Henry has been at my house so long. Because we had 4 weeks of pink eye here which is extremely contagious. Not really cool to send that along as well. I was about ready to send him on right after Halloween. I got pink eye. Then Wyatt got it. then Colten got it. Then Wyatt got it again. It is over with now, and hopefully, Lemon will not pick up any stray germs. I can see a state to state, country to country epidemic of pink eye in the news, with it all being my fault :P Now I am hoping I have not sent Flu germs along...

I will go ahead and tell a much briefer version of my story without any links or much ado now, that the whole thing is kind of a bust. Dang paparrazzi and their leaked photos....

Henry arrived, stayed at the Guarded Inn. There was a mysterious girl there. They talked, and he was smitten with the kitten. He gave her flowers. She kissed him on the cheek. Then her boyfriend showed up, and threatened Henry with his bow and arrows and prowess. Chased him off. Henry was so scared, he ran without paying his bill, which got the Tavern lady running after him as well.

Henry searched high and low for the winsome creature he had met at the Guarded Inn. He knew she was a special prize, so he set out on a quest.
He found himself in a land of little people, and they were very hospitable.

He knocked on the door of a castle surrounded by magic, and ended up in the midst of a Halloween costume party with some students and a very large man. He had a great time, and enjoyed a few too many witches' brews, so he had to sit back and worship the throne awhile.

Henry moved on a little late in the morning after those particular festivities, and made it to the swamp by dusk. He met a little green man and some guy with a robot. They played levitation games and sat by the fire.

Henry also stumbled across a secret training site where he became friends with some pilots who let him drive their craft. They pointed him in the direction of the beauty he sought.

Finally, he got to the land he set out for, and he could just feel in the breeze that his love was there. He found her, and she was a Princess! Princess Ophelia. He met her parents, and stayed in the castle. She begged her Father to let them have some time alone, and they were given an escort to town, where they spent a lovely day seeing the sights. They had a romantic picnic by the famous Mississippi River, and I think he got a few more smooches.

I think that about covers every section of pics.

HenrysQuest which has pics of Henry at Guarded Inn, meeting the girl, getting kisses, being chased off by both the BF and the Innkeeper, Henry on his quest in the land of the little people, visiting Dagobah, the clone training and the Xwing hanger, and crashing the Halloween party at Hogwart's.

HenrysMOC which showsa MOC of Princess Ophelia's castle home, and Henry meeting her parents, and a few stolen moments in the castle.

HenryinTown

Thanks, and hope you enjoy the pics, story and MOC. I do appreciate Feedback, as this is my first MOC ever- but be gentle! ;)

Jen,

Thanks for the story; now the pictures make more sense. It hasn't gone all bust, though, because I hadn't seen the MOC for Henry. That was great as well.

Due to popular demand and a few well placed kicks, I have edited my original BS folders with the Henry pics, as I have resized all my pics and reorganized them, and added one or two, as well. I apologize for the unnecessarily large pics and general disorganization at first. As I said, I was not quite ready to have them shown to begin with when they were leaked here. I was actually in process of trying to work on the folders, and was asking around for help at the time. But I realize they got leaked, so I hurried up to try to post links to them. Now I can see just how obnoxious they were. I apologize.

Anyway, here is a link to my original post, with the background story, and all new links. LINKY-POO

Now, now then, is that the language of a lady of the court????

I like this, especially the extra arch work over the main gate. It's a simple addition, but it adds just the right amount of ornamental touch.

Wow, the MOCs in this series of pics are fantastic, really life-like. They even look close to life-size. Boy, you sure have a lot of bricks!! :wink:

I thought you said he was having a good time?! Oh well, traveling can be dangerous. Glad to see he was rescued. :)

Yeah, but notice who rescued him: the Black Falcons. They rescued him from the Crusaders!

I dunno why, but I've always thought of Henry as a Crusader with that blue and red colour scheme of his....

Anyway, great to see that Henry made it "safely" to your house.

Thats great Henry arrived safe and sound. I hope the Falcons treat him to a good feast or something. He must be quite hungry.

Hi all,

Guess who's standing on my keyboard as I type this? Hint: He's about 1.5 inches tall and has a friendly smile.

:D

Thanks Lenny!

He's not dead, he's just tired and shagged out after a long squawk.

:P

Wow!!

:shock:

Thanks Bruce for the update. I was beginning to think that Lenny had held
him for ransom. :D

This is cool that Henry is travelling again.
