A rather personal bit of flash fiction. Looking back, it was foreshadowing about my own imminent transition that would blossom later that year.
Written for the Iron Writer Challenge in January 2015, I took on the following elements: Botticelli, a tiger lily, long hair, and steampunk goggles. The latter two elements demanded that I write a story involving my heroine Ida Stillwell, from my Trans-Continental steampunk books. It turned out to be an origin story that I decided was canon.
