Loyal readers of this blog may recall the recent outbreak of Mainspring Powell's | Amazon thb | Audible ] fan art cited herein [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ].

With the connivance of newroticgirl I was able to procure said fan art via eBay. (The seller had said it was partially inspired by Mainspring.) Without further ado, the reveal:

The unboxing.

Examining the new acquisition.

Clockpunk details.

The Mainspring pony in its natural habitat.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

Subject: Called my daughter, Thing 2, in to see . . .
From the mouth of a babe, Thing 2 opines, "Oh, a pony. Hers gorgeous. And pretty. I like her tattoos."

The tats, of course, from the fifth and sixth photos of the gear, heart, and screws.

One day my kids will be able to trace their love of a sub-subgenre to LJ, Jay Lake (hurm, J.L.--initial anagram goodness???), and fanfic ponies.

Life, she is good.

Why, thanks.

But my wife gets the credit for the Seussian sobriquets.

I'm only the coolest cat in my mind.

That is seriously disturbed. I cannot believe honest dollars were spent on that. ;-)
