Partner does not get steampunk fashion, or maybe costume is a better word.

What does one do when they walk out in what they feel to be their best costume ever, and their partner, who does not "get" steampunk, says "tell me you are not going out in public like that?"Ok,…Continue

Steampunk dreams

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.…

Madcap mayhem sounds like a great plan.:)

To my dear friend,

It has been brought to my attention that you have recently carried out numerous acts of tremendous and selfless bravery. Your actions have raised the esteem in which I hold you.

It is not much, but I have put your name forward as an outstanding recipient of the Royal Society Medal. If you recieve this small geegaw you will become a fellow of the society.

I hope I have not be presumptuous in my act.

I look forward to hearing from you in the not to distant future.

With heartfelt regards

Douglas.

P.S. The cog is looking a bit forlorn at the moment.

Well James Its great to find you here although I haven't been for a while cause i'm going through marriage break up but once i find my feet again i'll jump back in. I'm feeling a little unsettled right now and focusing on my art to keep me sane. I think its wonderful to have met through the love of Steam punk, usually its been because of Star wars or costuming in general. I think your one of the nicest guys i know :). I found it hard to find a connection with others here but it's nice to know another friend is within this universe

It seems, Mr Murray that my weeks of musical entertainment out in the rural countryside failed to clear my vision. I have noted the Add as Friend (giggle), and as you may note, have taken advantage of the clever mechanism and friended you. I hope my vitality returns in the same package as my brains forthwith and I might join in on some of the frivolities this site offers. Heres to a long and joyful friendship. Miss K

Dear Mr Murray,

thank you for your friendship invitation, which I am pleased to accept. I am slowly traversing the many portals of this site. The being lost at times is as much fun as the direct journey.

I look forward to spending more time in 'live' conversation with the delightful people on this site,

Sincere regards,

Miss K

Happy New Year James!!!!!! I hope your 2014 is magical and momentous.

At 3:55pm on November 23, 2013, Dr Douglas T. Hemmingway said…

Dear James,

It seems like such a long time since last we communicated that I felt it warranted actual correspondence. I hope you are well, that real life is not causing undue inconvenience to your good self.

Life at the Cog is not as manic as it once was, though the clientele are as charming as they have ever been. I have the apparent skill of avoiding your establishment when the patron and guests are present.

I seem to be spending more time behind a desk filling in paperwork these days, how I long for the chance to vanish over the horizon, on the trail of some rare orchid or a rarely seen example of the Jade vine. C'est la vie.

Well, I hope we have the chance to catch up at the cog sometime in the near future. Time can be an uncontrollable Juggernaut ready to tear us from our pleasure if we are not careful.

 

With the fondest of regards, your friend.

 

Dr Douglas 'Dougy' Hemmingway Trebuchet
