Waves buffeted the island rocks, sending sea spray into the air beside Aquila III.  The spray landed on beaches where it kept vegetation from growing, but further inland trees flourished from years of human absence.  From his vantage point high atop the station, Dr. Westbridge could see the entire...

The clitter clatter of tiny clockwork feet resounded in the wake of the Professor as he bulleted through the morning checklists.  Ensuring the energy output and input from the creature was always the first priority, but as usual it was content and the electricity flowed to the city without flaw.  

 He then checked the consoles and...

Tomorrow, my parents and I are leaving for a European trip.  I'll be gone two weeks this time, and very definitely incommunicado.  Don't blow up New Babbage (much) while I'm gone!

Dr. Falcon’s remains were scheduled for destruction Sunday afternoon, and as expected no one was pleased with this development.  Unit 6 had been resigned and accepted his own fate, but went rogue discovering the intent for Dr. Falcon.  He’d stolen pieces of his friend and hidden them carefully through the facility while searching for more signs of the apparition.  ...

Kasa's picture

The railway brakes decelerated the train creating a deafening squeal blessedly muffled through the cars.  Kasa and her cabin-mate both winced at the grating sound as they prepared for departure.  Her pack was sealed and contained her necessities and a personal medical kit, her money and tickets were hidden...
