Death in the Library
A castle room interior.
About this creation
In the old Library Lord and Lady Fotherington are enjoying their favourite pastimes: drinking and reading books by De Sade. Above them on the high shelves their son Rupert is looking for the collected editions of Fox Hunters weekly when a critter startles him.

So who dies? Is it the falling Rupert? The reading Lord? Or the drunken Lady? Or is this the end for the plucky rat when Rupert returns with a shotgun and a grudge?

It's your choice... to me it's just a moment in time!


This was created for the Classic Castle Competition in 2006. It was intended to be a room interior, but I misread the rules and found it would need another wall and the window could not stick out as far. So I put it into the misc. category. Somehow it won! I'm not sure how as several other entries seemed far better to me. Still, I'm grateful and proud to have won.

Built: 2005
Current Status: Intact.

   Look out Rupert!

   My favourite bit of the whole MOC is the candle stick. It's a white lightsaber blade peice, in a lightsaber, in a chrome headlight. Looks great.

   It was the rat!

   No idea how bad things are about to get.

   Arghhh!

   The window. It looks great but it sticks too far out from the base plate to either use in a full castle MOC or for this to count as a vignette.

   There's the trick! It's a droid arm.

   From the otherside it's not as impressive, though you can see where I began to run out of brown pieces to make the shelves with!

I know this may sound wierd, because I'm 13, but I want to work for lego, designing sets when I'm older. I think I'm good, and my friends think my MOCs are better than the ones from lego. I don't have any really good ones in MOCpages yet, but trust me, I'm pretty good. I just wanted to know how you got your job, and how I can work there too. (once I'm the proper age)I read all the set designer interviews in lego club and brickmaster magazine. please reply if you can! I really love LEGO and I don't think I'll ever out grow it. I have a friend who's dad still likes legos, and I hope I can get a job there. (if it pays well that is) Thanks! please reply!

You could put it in a full castle MOC... if the walls are really, really thick. Which is probably more realistic anyway.
