NaMiFiWriMoFo

Since I don't have time to write a freaking novel, November will be microfiction month. My aim is to write a microfic a day.



With a grinding squeal, the Carriage came to a shuddering halt. The massive man in the driver's seat stepped down to open the door when, with a cloud of steam and smoke, a hatch on the top of the Carriage burst open, and a slender man in tweed leapt out.

"Caw! Don't just stand there! Hand me a phase inverter and a bucket of water!" After a moment's thought, the large man gracelessly dropped a heavy toolchest on top of the Carriage. The smaller man rapidly selected and discarded a number of bizarre brass devices before choosing one and adjusting something. A loud moan and a cloud of blue gas erupted from a valve.

"Ha! That was the best run yet! We'll penetrate the Nox barrier yet! All I need to do is adjust the daemonic phase catalyser and boost the actuator's phlogistic acid mixture." He paused a moment before adding, "And perhaps tighten up the brakes a tad. Caw, would you mind pulling us back from that cliff face?"

The large man blinked, and removed his black tailcoat before heaving on the brass and iron Carriage.

I want a daemonic phase catalyser! I don't know what it does, but it sounds cool!

Hrm. I just figured out what one looks like. And how to make one.

I'm starting to question my own sanity...

Can we build one? I have a roof! And a drill! And a hammer!

It's about 10" long. I'll need some wood, some blue LEDs and watch batteries, sculpy, and either shaped acrylic or glass, and some brass fittings. The tesla coil is optional, but would be ideal.

I saw on FB - sadly, not only will I be busy doing other things, I will even be sober for the most part that night.
