Actually, I don't remember if it was raining or not. I do remember being in the middle of one of my streampunk funks and somehow deciding that it would be a great idea to take all of the significant people in my life and transforming them into steampunk characters in a steampunk universe.
Yeah, that's basically it.
In other words this site is a purely emotional, imaginative, and creative binge. I can't promise continuity or structure or rationality. I'll be developing the world and characters as they come to me, and I might post a couple of interesting steampunk articles as I come across them.
But it is mostly just an exercise in OCD and silliness.
