ALL IN THE APPROACH

247 followers

Elara, known for her daring heists and ability to vanish like smoke, targets the most opulent clock towers in the city, stealing not jewels, but precious Chronoliths - solidified units of time. Yet, she never sells them on the black market. No one knows why. One night, her target is the workshop of Magnus, a brilliant but reclusive Clocksmith. He suspects a thief, but is unprepared for Elara's quick wit and acrobatic skills. Their confrontation ends with a broken window, a stolen Chronolith, and a reluctant partnership forged. Magnus believes Elara is a pawn in a larger game, orchestrated by the Collector. He needs her dexterity and knowledge of the black market to track him down. Elara, in turn, seeks Magnus's expertise to unravel the secrets of her clockwork heart, which malfunctions, causing her pain and erratic time jumps. Their journey takes them across clockwork districts bathed in warm lamplight, down dusty tunnels echoing with gears and chains, and into hidden bazaars where time is bartered like any other commodity. They face clockwork automatons guarding Chronolith vaults, time-bending traps set by the Collector, and the constant threat of Time Wardens, enforcers tasked with protecting the city's temporal flow. As they delve deeper, their initial distrust melts into grudging respect and then something more. Magnus learns of Elara's past, a childhood shrouded in tragedy where time was stolen from her, fueling her quest to understand and perhaps even reclaim it. Elara witnesses Magnus's desperate desire to save his dying daughter, a wish that pushes him towards unethical experiments with time manipulation. The climax ensues in the Collector's lair, a labyrinthine fortress fueled by stolen Chronoliths. They discover the Collector's true motive: to break the world's reliance on clockwork time, plunging it into chaos and ruling over the ensuing anarchy. The final battle is not just physical, but one of choices. Elara must decide whether to use her stolen time to save herself or Magnus's daughter. Magnus must choose between perfecting his time machine and sacrificing his morals. Their decisions, and the unique approaches they take, will determine the fate of the city and their own.
