They were apprentice wizards, the three of them, with a penchant for clever hackery. Bertie had sent the three of them to Annie, saying, “She’s an engineer. She could tell you about flying.”
She had meant to tell them that she was in only her first year of study, and in any case she wasn’t planning to do aeronautical engineering.
Tristan said, “We don’t want to collide with any airships.”
Griselda explained that the documentary film had been most deceiving, because they hadn’t managed to get a flying motorbike to work at all.
[In which Annie meets the steampunk wizard kids: Tristan, Gunnhild, and Griselda, aka Tristan and the Magic Twins.]
Great six, and always amazing writing. Thank you so much for sharing all you sixes, I thoroughly enjoy your work. I hope you have a fantastic Christmas. Ax
*snicker* – A ‘documentary’ film with a flying motorbike? I have visions of Rubeus Hagrid now. Fun 6, E.P. 😀
Kudos to you… yes, it’s a Harry Potter reference. And at the meta-level it’s a Galaxy Quest reference: visitors from another planet who interpret fiction as documentary.
A flying motorbike? Now that sounds interesting : )
Clever trickery? Makes me think these kids might try to make it real. 🙂
Very intriguing – esp the flying motorbike!
Love your humour – and the names of your characters – and the concept. OK I love your writing. 😀
The names–straight out of the Western Canon, of course.
Intriguing, looking forward to more
Very nice! Wonderfully whimsical, and completely absorbing. =D
Loved it–you have such a fresh voice, and the bits of humor underlying this are fantastic. Great job!
Great six, love the voice… these kids sound like they’ll be a handful 🙂
What’s the motorbike’s power source? Have to have a pretty good power-to-weight ratio.
No question but that fantasy and/or steam-punk feature lots of WTF-physics. That’s 95.738% of the fun. 🙂
What a wonderful sense of humor in this passage! Great imagination.
A big fan of Galaxy Quest so I like the twist on seeing HP as a documentary. 🙂
