Power Fluctuations #5 (The Dark Aether)

Week 2 : Saturday Night – Sunday Morning

 

At the very top of Clockhaven Power Station, on the high observation platform, the clockwork unicorn lay down watching the stars. She had been running for a week without maintenance and was showing the effects, small niggling alignment issues in her drive systems, presure anomalies in her hydraulics, and a backlog of data in her cognative buffer arrays.

With Unit #6 on guard at the bottom of the observation tower it was time to go into maintenance mode for a few hours.

Normally this was routine, every three days she would go into maintenance mode and in a blink of a moment reactivate ready to continue her duties, but this time was different…

This time something both wonderful and terrible happened…

Avariel Falcon had a dream…

It was not a particularly nice dream, not particularly well formed, but a dream none the less.

Large crab like creatures were attacking, they seamed to be unstoppable…

Buildings burnt…

A small group of urchins ran down the street desperatly trying to escape, but they were too slow…

Somehow the clockwork unicorn found herself between the fleeing urchins and the monsters…

In a last desperate moment Avariel Falcon triggered an overload in the Falconite crystal that powered her and lunged at the creatures…
