'What's 'hyperbole mechanics'?' The newcomer or stranger, take your pick, asked as she turned her back on him. He looked at her braided, long, black hair that, even in the dirtiest, grimiest part of the world, possessed that undeniable elven glimmer. The thick braid came to a pointed curl at the bottom and it swished as she let out a long sigh.

'You don't like questions, do you?' It wasn't a question, more of a statement, but he couldn't help but grin as she finally turned around only to look passed him at his steam mount. He watched her as she gave it an appraising look and ignored his questions. Finally she pushed off her work bench and walked passed him, getting a closer look at the mount. Her long elven ears were tied back along with her braid and the pierced metal rings twinkled in the sun.

Without slowing the least bit, she approached the mount and knelt down. 'Mind?' She asked already poking at its outer carriage. Pulling a tool out of her back pocket, underneath her jacket, she opened the carriage cage and made a face at the steam mount's innards. Reaching in, the newcomer watched her poke this, poke that, and then finally lay her hands on the mounts ribcage. It trembled for a moment and he felt the distinct rumble of earth beneath him.

'What are you...?' She cut him off with a dirty look and then closed her eyes, leaning in closer to the mount. A minute passed before she expertly twirled her tool in her hand and closed up the carriage. She looked down at her hands and rubbed her fingers together. Finally, she said something.

'Why were you out in the Noman?'

Noman was actually 'No Man's land', but people in these parts seemed to want to combine every word worth speaking. It was local speak and he was so tired of hearing it. Still, she wasn't local, that was obvious, but damned if she wasn't suspicious like all of them. If she could figure out where he was just by feeling his mount and looking at the dirt, then she could fix it. He shrugged.

'Does knowing that help you fix it?'


Pulling out his wallet he picked out some of the local cash and laid two bills on her work bench. 'Tomorrow or a couple days?'

'A couple days but,' the newcomer cut her off by walking passed her after he gently laid a hand on the mount, then he walked out of her merchant shack and back into the marketplace toward the local pub. 'What, you're not going to answer my question?'

He turned with an ungracious grin, 'Irritating, isn't it?' He winked as he crossed the road to the pub's wooden porch leading into the stone building when suddenly the ground beneath him turned to pure ice, causing him to slip and fall back with a loud crash.

Ice? In Morbourne? Turning back, he watched 'Just Naddie' twirl her tool and tuck it back into her back pocket. With a slow blink, she grabbed the steam mount by its reins and led it back behind her shack. There was very little effort on her part to hide her laughter.

OK, so it's just a re-postworked version of my earlier piece of Clara, but I liked it!

Say hello to Osbert "Oz" Taylor, and his lil friend, Maximilian Cornelius Bonaparte, better known simply as Max the Monkey. Oz tends bar over at The Rusty Cog in Morbourne, and Max likes to "help". No one dares complain if a drink is spilled here and there when Max is trying to serve. For one thing, he's just too damn cute. For another, no one dares incur the wrath of the former steam pirate. No one touches a man's monkey!

Clara again, this time in her secret role as a mechanic. Roz can breath easy because this time I only used a few small elements from Littlefox's Steampunk set.

Feel free to ask me if you want to know how I did the outfit or whatevs.
