Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

We returned to the butler, intent on finding out more information about his lord, who may or may not be named Richard Fingers. I was having trouble following the conversation. So were my new bee friends. What we could gather is that the lord had a certain vested interest in our kidnapped compatriot ...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

The crew left me to my own devices while they investigated something about werewolves. Frankly, it didn’t interest me very much, because my attention had been laser-focused on laser focusing. Also, there were jars full of hornets. Honestly werewolves seemed pedestrian at this point. However, my peac...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Following the events at the gala, I went back to the drawing board on the Electric Bugaboo. I decided to make it less sensitive by installing a safety button on the underside I shall refer to as the “Bug Hole”. Before it can properly be activated, you now must depress the button with your finger, al...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

The week that followed was uncertain for me. What wondrous things would I create? What potential would be unlocked due to my understated genius? No one could truly know for sure until the week began, but in this interim period, the possibilities were simply endless. All I knew for sure is that I wou...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

While our unconscious perpetrators were being hauled away, I used the opportunity to gather 100 scorpion parts and store them in Rachel’s carriage. This took a fair amount of time, with multiple trips, digging through the garden, with sporadic bursts of shouting “Mine!” It will definitely be worth i...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

My excitement was so palpable upon reaching the doors to the terrace that I spun on my heels, put my hand atop my hat and glided backwards through the door, just as someone was opening it from the opposite side. This was truly an impressive display. It was as if I was walking upon the moon, as I ima...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

After dinner, we were forced into enjoying a period of dancing in the ballroom, a fine activity to do on a full stomach. Just when I thought I had become the biggest embarrassment of the night, spell woman and photo hunter attempted some plans to look up a lady’s dress. Granted, she was a suspect in...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

Back in the dining room, I was served lamb, which did not have any eyes when it arrived on my plate. This was at least an improvement over the last course. The folks around me began discussing religion and magic, two subjects I am deeply familiar with but thought it was better not to discuss. Howeve...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

An opportunity to remove myself from the table arose when a mysterious figure dropped a napkin at my plate. Fortuitously, it had a message on it asking me to head toward the library. I explained to Rachel that the fish had disagreed with me, mostly about the current policies around pork subsidies, a...

Re: 1879: The Expendables - McFly's Journal

After being herded into a drawing room, I hugged the wall next to the door as it was the best position to be antisocial and escape in case of a talking emergency. However Lord Charles, who is apparently a very important person, addressed me directly. He asked about the brandy in my hand, which was t...
