Steampunk Weekly - 5.03.10

Pardon me ladies. I have been awaiting this package for some time. And if it what I think it is, then I must share it with you immediately. Eva said as she put her letter opener to work on the envelope just handed her by Amanda Leigh.

To Eva's delight, she pulled out a stack of train tickets.

Ladies, I have here, a ticket for each of you. Should you want to attend the first SteamPink meeting held by the Society. The meeting will be held on the Devonian Express. You shall find out more about the Society and things SteamPink during this event. Eva smiled excitedly and eagerly sought the reaction from each woman present.


The silence was broken when this mechanical creature crept out of Mary Ann's reticule.

Eva stared in wonder.

Amanda Leigh stood up immediately and made feeble attempts to swat the creature away with her reticule. She was in a similar situation where getting to close to such a creature could cause electrocution.

Freda's tea cup fell to the ground.

What do you have to say for yourself Mary Ann?


Jane and Jade have reached the wooded path to McGregor's castle. They are halfway there.

They hear rustling in the bushes.

Jade investigates.

Ah, I do believe 'tis Sullivan. Jade discovers.

Sullivan McPig? Must be on holiday with his owner hereabouts. I wonder if he's hunting truffles. I know Eva said that there have been some in the area. Jane takes a moment to dream of chocolate truffles.

Oy, Sullivan. How do? Jade bends down to address McPig.

  1. Awesome! SteamPink week sounds like fun :)

  2. So awesome. : ) I semi-recently found the steam-punk genre, but I've yet to find more than a couple books within it that I'm truly excited about (like Soulless), so I'm really looking forward to your thoughts! : )

    And love "Steampink"... I'm just waiting for that to take off.

  3. Ah, the naughty Leggs has been found at last!

    "Dear Freda, please dont'startle so, you'll only serve to disturb Leggs - which, by the by, is but a wee member of the mildus electrocutious arachnid genus - harmless, at least insofar as her bite goes".

    "She can, I feel compelled to add, spin quite the web".

    "Do come to momma, Leggs. There's a good girl!"

    Mary Ann contrives to look innocent, despite the 3 pairs of eyes fastened accusingly on her.

    With a nervous flourish of her fan, Mary Ann remarks to no one in particular, "My, it's a steamy day, is it not?"

    SteamPink Week .... YAY :D

  4. Hmmmm.... Truffles. I hope that Jane doesn't snatch them first thinking they're chocolate truffles. I'd better get a ticket for that train.

  5. Getting super sexcited about your Steampink week! Woot!

  6. Even tho I know nothing about steampunk -- I LOVE that picture of the spider!

  7. So sorry to startle Leggs, I was once bitten badly by one just like him though not mechanical, and the fear rose to the top when I saw your friend. I won't swat him, or try to get him killed by the next man I see, now that I know it's safe.


    p.s. V; I received Random today! Thank you! (((HUGS)))

  8. Cool


  9. Oooo...steamPINK! I love it. I'll try to post a steampunk review or post that week. I'd love to get a ticket, too. *grin*


  10. Amanda Leigh turns her attention back to the tickets. SteamPink promises to be a unique event! I cannot wait! Though I do hope some of the other people present can manage to keep their contraptions in their reticules. *glares again at Mary Ann*


  11. I want a SteamPink ticket! Love it. I am so excited! :D
