Forum Awards Presentation!
Posted on 7/1/2008 at 8:49 PM by Sir Hugh
We zoom into a dark forest. The leaves flutter aimlessly and the Sun is not visible. The trees seem murderous in their intents, and, for a second, a face appears in one of the trees, but then quickly vanishes. The camera moves closer to that tree and examines a squirrel crawling on it. The squirrel looks at the camera and then raises a nut. Swiftly, it bonks the camera with the nut, and then lets out a high chirp. Out of nowhere, an army of rabid raccoons all wearing capes labeled "TBK: We suck!" The camera quickly zooms out in fear, and then catches a small figure on the ground far below. It zooms in to reveal a man walking forward, cutting the brush with a sword.


And so begins the 5th Semi-Annual BFME2H Forum Awards's concluding, official presentation. Congratulations to winners and well done to those nominated and special thanks to Sargon for hosting and Arvy for his literary skill. Wow, it's been 6 months already.
