Journal Entry, April 5th, 188…*sound of Mr Cleanslate screaming in terror as he tests the Academy tram line*

”pokes head out window and see’s Mr Cleanslate float off into the distance as the maintenance tram derails itself…shakes head and closes window again”

Well Journal, its been another long time since i put pen to paper. Such a lot has happened once again. Yet another meeting of the High Council of Timelords on New Gallifrey, this time though with me as the interim president. Apparently according to the interim castellan he thinks someone wants to kill me. Me?! Who would want to kill me? I’m totally innocent…well, innocent as far as the High Council goes. The station now has a clean reputation, all the major experiments regarding time breaches is now going on inside clockhaven in the city of New Babbage.

Unfortunatley though a few days ago the old steemdriven pile of museum junk that lay on the bottom floor of the lab in clockhaven gave up. The resulting implosion sucked into the vortex most of the contents of the floors…and sucked in the floors themselves. Luckily for me some strange epidemic of oil sucking bee;s and then the fire at Doctor Obolenskys observatory covered up the strange vortexial phenomena appearing over the dome of the lab in clockhaven…that plus some handy misdirection on my part.

It did however mean that the lab had to be rebuilt….from scratch…again…

”pauses as he hears Mr Cleanslate scream in terror again”

”looks out the window and see’s Mr Cleanslate rip up a massive chunk of the academy line and put blocks in place, removing academy from the tram system….”

Since the townsfolks have got it into their head that im a “Time Lord” and make comments about little blue boxes (that sodding menace known as The Doctor…) i decided it wasn’t worth the effort of the time concealing time travel consoles in that lab anymore. The last 6 attempts at concealing consoles has ended in disaster. Three fires, an implosion and 2 explosions. This time round, it’s getting the Celestial Intervention Agency treatment.

After 3 visits to 2 different wild forests in this dimension i managed to haul into Zenobia station 8 short tonnes of cherry wood and 2 tonnes of pinewood. The latest console configuration blueprints from Hands Of Omega has meant that for the first time in what seems like months, Fullarton House finally has a real console installed and not some junked up old museum peice…

The house is now on three levels with the console directly under the dome, the middle level is now the top of the power stack and the brand new lab…

The ground floor has a shard of the stations eye concealed inside a static dynamo. The whole lot is crammed inside an iron mesh and surrounded by wooden pylons to stop any nosey urchins from sticking their hand inside and getting sent to god know what dimension…or worse…

I think the new configuration of the home in clockhaven still retains that victorian industrial look on the inside…all that wood though is a bit of a firehazard, i must remember to install a sprinkler fire dousing system soon.

The first test flight was a short hop sideways in time to Caledon…reason being i had to go to one of their quieter places and stea….i mean borrow some more tree’s for the new windows im installing at the hall, well, theres so much green stuff in Caledon they wont miss a few dozen trees here and there.

The good thing about the new design though is it is almost an exact replica of the central pylons supporting the massive glass dome above the time column in Zenobia Station…now it really is a home away from home…

I keep saying there are so many timelords in this city that there’s no real reason to hide it anymore. Looks really nice :3

No such thing as a “Time Lord”….*winks*

Time travel is nothing but a waste of time, totally impractical, I’ve seen the results of Mr. Mornington’s experiment’s after finding a way to sneak into his “zenobia station” to steal that advanced spatial technology timelords tend to have, and only found a doorway into a void that sucked me in after visiting Fullarton house, a bunch of loud machinery that doesn’t appear to do anything at all

Please make sure that your fire dousing system is approved by the Ladies Fire Brigade. After all; 3 fire, 2 explosions, and an implosion make you quite the hazard to the community sir.

”peers closely at the images wondering where the cozy fire to sit on front of on cold Babbage nights is…”
