The head researcher killing himself reminds me of the last frame of this comic: http://community.livejournal.com/scans_daily/4611731.html

Once again, I am stunned by your mastery of prose. I really love your submissions. They're always beautiful pieces of wordcraft. Very nicely done.

Sidethought: can the creatures exist outside of the cloud bank? I would assume that certain ones couldn't, due to the nature of various realities, but others very well might. That could be an iiiiiinteresting plot hook. Woo for "The Mist". Go to Comment

As is the source: there isn't much that rivals complete and utter annihilation of millions of souls in the space of a few seconds. It's a devastatingly horrifying thought. I think Ouro captured that feel quite nicely. Go to Comment

Thanks for all your kind words, my friends. Yes, what I envisaged the contaminated zone to be is like something from "The Mist", full of weird monsters and unseen horrors. And, of couse, the way Mieville, in Perdido Street Station, describes the city of Suroch, after a "Torque bomb" has been detonated over it. The term "cockroach tree" paints a neat picture...

Kassil's comment on 2008-11-07 06:20 PM
I dearly love the notion of these vermin. They're gremlins, adapted to thaumatechnology; perhaps in the quiet hours when the machinery isn't doing as much, you can hear the infestation as an occasional faint cackling, whistling sound, a cross between the sound of a fire and of the radio waves of the aurora.

One possible explanation for them that I could think of would be a kind of spontaneous generation; in the highly charged environment of a thaumatechnological engine, the concentration of energies might be enough to coalesce into a kind of lifeform, which would serve to explain why they're so attracted to machinery and why, outside that environment, they're rendered helpless.

One of the best charms of this bit is actually a small tray of seasalt on top of the case(preferably seasalt that has been exposed to sunlight for 24 hours (pull it in at night if you can)). I have had friends computer show actual and timable improvements when the tray was there... and it often crashed and was slower when it was not. His wife through out his tray of salt... and two days later it had a fatal drive crash. Again, you opinion and results may vary.

The overlap between marginal communities is our primary source of this. The Wicca community and the Computer users which in the begining were both maginal groups, started this kind of synergy. Go to Comment

I wish that second paragraph had been added as an idea to the submission. That is a great idea. Go to Comment

I have always loved steampunk and thaumatology.  This is a perfect addition to magical steampunk and magi-tech systems. 



 



Not only is this a great idea. It is really well written.  The into bit is colorful and in character.  The entry of the text book is perfect as it sets the scene for the rest of the submission.  The rest of it is clear, concise, and useful.



Two paws and a tail up for you.

I usually associate malevolence with gremlins, not a blissfully unaware interference.
Also, I'd prefer other methods of extermination. Go to Comment

"{...} small, vaguely flame-like smears of ghostly luminescent smoke entwining and enmeshing themselves endlessly through the rotating transmission shafts, pumping pistons and spinning cogs of their machine nest, basking in the various, delicious energies emanated by the enchanted mechanisms."

Oh my gosh, I just got a visual of Fern Gully.

Horrifying revelations and scarred memories aside, I love this submission. The Cog Devils are very much usable and interesting, and they make a very good excuse to get more description of Locastrian thaumatech. :D Go to Comment

Darn, i get to these too late! If I had gotten here earlier, my comment would sound a lot like Kassil's first paragraph.
