I had a dream last night, probably bought on by the book I was reading and the roleplay I am participating in, of being in a room full of people in steampunk attire. I am sure this is a pretty boring…Continue

Steampunk Zooseum

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 5:30am 23 Comments

So I thought I would put a short story I wrote up here. All credit due to the Contessa of Vintage, whom started a simple discussion topic, entitled "Your Steampunk Zoo." This story popped into my head at the very mention of these words, and I thought I might use it as the first thing I have ever published. Ever. Please critic, applaud, boo, hiss, praise as you wish.…

A WereLion companion, eh? It could be a bit dicey in the dining car of The Flying Scotsman.

Greetings James! I have missed many adventures on the Empire last year, but plan to remedy that this new year, and wanted to say hello.... so... hello!

James, my dear friend,

I do hope that you will accept my apologies for my unfortunate lapse, and allow me to wish you a belated congratulations upon your 21 birthday!

I am in no doubt that you found an interesting way in which to celebrate such a momentous occasion, (if you are even able to recollect the event?)

Hopefully we shall be able to raise a glass together in the saloon at some point, and make most merry, without the need of fire, of course.

Always remember that I am ever at your service.

Your humble co-conspirator.

Douglas.
