Profile Information

Introduction
I've been interested in the Victorian era for a long time. I avidly read Sherlock Holmes mysteries ... not quite sure if I'm a Sherlockian, Holmesian, or Baker Street Irregular ...

(As stated in the New Citizens of the Empire forum post)

Hello, please allow me to formally introduce myself.

My name is Niccole Jill Holmes Trucenberger.

"Holmes", you may ask, "as in ...?"

Yes, his great niece. That would make Mycroft Holmes my Granddaddy.

Many people read about the life of Sherlock Holmes, as he retires to the Sussex Downs and lives beyond the Victorian era.

Sorry to say that wasn't true. My Grand Uncle (yes, I know it should be "Great Uncle", but calling him "Grand Uncle" since I was a tot had stuck) dwelled at 221B Baker Street until he was murdered. Yes, murdered.

I was the one who solved his murder. Before that, I moved from Stamford, Connecticut in the "Yankee" States to London with my once - nanny, Miss Sarah. We stayed at the Baker Street residence.

I don't want to make this a long-winded tale, but I would say that the murderer was someone who was least suspected, but at the same time it makes perfect sense who it was. No on Moriarty, Watson (Uncle John, to myself) or Irene Adler.

Granddaddy Mycroft and my Grandmother had a daughter, Moira, and they sent her away to America, where she settled in Stamford, Connecticut, for protection. Granddaddy, working for the English government, did have people on the wrong end of the law after him and his family. That's why it'd been kept in secret in the stories of Doyle.

Moira, who was half English and half Irish, married Harold Trucenberger. I was born from my mother about a year after they wed.

Granddaddy would bring us secretly in to London after we'd alight from the steamship. During these trips I got to meet my Grand Uncle Sherlock. We had marvelous times; learning about his chemistry set, he'd play his violin and I'd make it sound like wounded a pig, but what I enjoyed most were my studies of deduction and the art of being a detective.

My grandparents visited myself and my family when they could. During the last visit, my parents and grandparents were in a horse-drawn carriage when it got into an "accident". My Granddaddy was badly injured, but survived. My grandmother and parents did not.

We had suspected it was those people on the wrong side of the law, who followed my grandparents, and tried to murder them. They succeeded partially.

Granddaddy had to stay with me after he was out of hospital, and we had to find a local graveyard for my grandmother and parents. He then went back to London, leaving me with Miss Sarah. It was several years later he contacted me to tell me about the murder of my beloved grand uncle .

And yes, for obvious reasons, I do call myself a Private Consulting Detective, or PCD.

A Glimpse into the Childhood of Nicci T.

Cold. Meticulous. Calculating.

That's how he was viewed as.

But, here is a glimpse of a different side of him ...

Grand Uncle always had a flair for the dramatic. I had been there as a small child on occasion, in the flat in Baker St., where he, the world's famous private consulting detective, would reveal how he solved a case.

I would watch in awe - not only that, but I would either be right behind him or in the door frame of another room ... and mock him in…

Templecon in RI in August, yes. There is The Cog railway to the moon event in July. Not sure how big it is, never been: https://thecog.com/cog_events.php

There is also the Lowell Kinetic Race in September - Lot of makers influenced by steampunk (and not). It is the first time they are going to do it, but I expect it will be a good time for all involved.

And it's already inspired a story or two...

Thanks Nicci!  I am holding a Maker Fair here at York Library here in Maine - I would love to have a Steampunk presence.  Any idea who I can contact to make that happen?

Thanks for your warm welcome! I'll make my intentions known soon enough...

I thank you.  Your welcome was most kind.

Thank you for the welcome. It is great to be among like minds. Wondering what are your primary Steampunk passions? Mine are period music, making gizmos, jewelry and trying to assemble simple Steampunk garb, especially for the Summer heat. Be well.  James
