SteamBoyz: Octo Pulley

All is quiet on the Tiny Bubble as it makes its descent into the ocean depths.

Each passenger is stationed in front of a window viewing the different sea creatures that pass by.
Lo and Behold!

An Octo Pulley!

According to the Kreating Insecurities book of creatures:

It's not easy being Pulley. He can only be in water for short periods of time. If he is in too long, parts start to decay. Don't worry, his heart rusted long ago. Since then, he has ceased caring.

Shall we try to capture one for you take home? Jane asks.


Very well.

Jade, prepare the net trap.

::= SteamBoyz schedule =::


  1. 7. I confess, I am most intrigued by the alleged 'sea monster' types that are supposed to roam the depths. Prehistoric sized fish and all that. Water dragons. And suchlike. I should like to sketch some if we should come upon them in our underwater leg of the journey.

    8. For bait, let us use a clockwork crab. Octopi consume crabs and sea stars and things like that, so perhaps a tasty morsel will tempt him closer!

  2. I would love to see an anglerfish. They're highly misunderstood creatures - you'd behave like them too if you lived in the dark constantly.

    Also, what about a model of a fishing vessel? He might like being a kraken for a while.

  3. 5. I commented here http://ageofsteam.wordpress.com/2010/06/10/visiting-lolita-o-m-grey-reviews-the-strangely-beautiful-tale-of-miss-percy-parker/#comment-1233

    6. Done!
    7. Water dragons! They are beautiful creatures.
    8. A new heart perhaps?

  4. 7. I'd like to see some starfish. And maybe some octopus, but only if they're psychic ;)

    8. Maybe a tasty snack? Clams, small fish, something like that. I bet he'd like a morsel.

  5. Great undersea creature! LOL. Those octo-pullys are so rarely seen! Thanks for including me :0)))
