I keep feeling like there is a reference of some ilk that I'm missing in terms of the names of the Stones. I mean, obviously, Stones, sword-in-the-stone, rightwise-king-of-Camelot; and obviously they're Biblically-inspired names; but is there more to it than that?

(Questions I am embarrassed to ask in public! But also I want to know. So. Your theories: hit me up with them!)

Title: Mechanical Wonder
Characters/Pairing: Briar Rose
Rating: T
Word Count: 1033
Spoilers/Warnings: Once Upon a Time [In Space] - themes as appropriate to the source.
Summary: The Briar Rose wakes and joins a space pirate crew.
Author's Notes: Written for [personal profile] frith_in_thorns for [community profile] fandom_stocking because apparently writing Mechanisms fic is a New Year tradition for me now...I set out to write Briar Rose/Aurora and ended up with Briar Rose & Johnny deVille tentative friendship fic...

Gun fire and explosions that's our cue... )
kaberett: Overlaid Mars & Venus symbols, with Swiss Army knife tools at other positions around the central circle. (Default)
So, er, Yuletide happened, and then I wrote 2700 words of fic exploring more-or-less the question I asked a friend when I got the assignment, specifically, "so, how would you go about hacking the Acheron?"
Even immortality is relative.

None of these kids, old as sin as they are, can remember a time without Hades. Their parents, older still, have already begun to forget: because even if you can halt the cell senescence, persuading the brain to store more data is a completely different matter - and a problem the Olympians hadn’t cracked.

Of course, we weren’t inclined to share, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Feat. Prometheus, Proserpine and Hecate, among others!

Aurora’s Broadcast #2 – The Mechanisms Update [02.2012 Terran Gregorian]

 
Greetings once again, stowaways. I’ll tell you now that the only reason we haven’t found
you and thrown you out of the nearest airlock (or worse) is that we’ve been a wee bit busy.
As follows:
 
Ulysses Dies at Dawn
 
We’ve been hard at work reminiscing over whisky and we reckon we’ve more or less got
this tale down tap. There are a few hazy points left, and some of us are still a little rusty
after an encounter with space whales last week. However, that shouldn’t stop us putting on
a show for your delectation and delight. In fact, I think we shall do that very thing.
 
The First Showing
 
If you’re in Oxford, or can be in Oxford, or have an outside chance of being in Oxford if
you start walking/planning to steal a spaceship now, on SATURDAY FEBRUARY 9TH,
you could come and see the first complete debut of this new story! We’ll be playing at the
CELLAR, where doors will open at 7PM for 5 of your English Pounds. As support, we are
lucky enough to be joined by POLAR PATTERNS (who played with us at Port Mahon last
time) and, from London, the clockwork intricacies of POCKETWATCH. Note that, to finish
before the venue’s curfew, timing will be very tight – so DON’T BE LATE. We’re looking
forward to seeing your faces, and hearing what you think of our tales of the City.

The Mechanisms are looking for funding for their next album, 'Ulysses Dies At Dawn', and are offering all sorts of interesting rewards on their Indiegogo page. I think I want the dice, but I need to figure out my budget and the current exchange rates.

Ulysses Dies At Dawn Indiegogo Page

In relation to this they've also released a completely irrelevant newspaper cutting that someone decided to archive, which is an interesting story nonetheless. And the Toy Soldier singing the Trials of Orpheus, which is very pretty and haunting.


And again, Ulysses Dies At Dawn Indiegogo Page.

Because all shiny new comms should have a discussion post. So, discuss away, and have no fear of King Cole's censors. Will Aurora pine with Nastya away? What's become of the kittens adopted by Ivy and Gunpowder Tim?

Also, an encouragement to put The Mechanisms on your wishlist at [community profile] fandom_stocking! Your mod is not press-ganging tag-stalking for fresh crew members there. Not at all. *cough*

And say hello to your fellow crew mates!
