Well, it's nice tae see SOME o' ye take yer health seriously, even if ye do have an inexplicable attraction tae a bunch o' lunatics drivin' aroond tryin' their best tae keep me in a job!
:)
Thanks for those who thought what I wrote was worth a vote, very well done to Naser and apologies to any Scottish members for going all Oor Wullie on them! (I actually have a mental image of Fulton Mackay - the warden in Porridge - playing the doctor here). Very big commiserations to Bigtoof - I was sure yours would knock mine out of the park!!

Just wanted to praise all the entries in this one. Great job. And I also thought the blue box was something Who-esque at first :D hope to see entries for a longer story style contest - always loved the fluff some of the Batreppers of 2S have produced (especially Bigtoofs batreps!).

I was worried someone would notice that the main character in mine (Shas'vre Vishai) is actually the same guy I entered for the create a character competition. Nobody said anything so I guess I got away with it.

So apparently people don't mind my Ork fluff, once you get through the (intentionally) horrible syntax, grammar and spelling! :P

Ty for those who voted (esp to those who voted twice!)

Cyrus
You make it sound like it could be wearing a top-hat and monocle, but for the sole reason it'd have been painted by Gareth that it would still look terrifying........I have to say I agree. XD
