The Seeker: My Ties to the Surface

Surface Ties: the Seeker

Long ago on the surface, you sent someone out looking for secret knowledge. They have found you at last!

“Miz Harlowe? That’s you, en’t it?”

The voice was somewhat familiar, but I still clutched my knife, buried deep in the folds of my clothing. I turned to face them, exhaling when I saw who it was.

“Jack!” I said, throwing my arms around him. “How did you find me?”

Jack shrugged. “I’d know that hair anywhere, m’dear. Makes y’ stick out like a sore thumb–to me, at least.”

I didn’t like to hear that, as it seemed that being unseen was a special trait down here. Without thinking, I reached up and brushed some tight curls behind my ear. I’d have to make my hair more neatly tomorrow.

“Did you find out anything?” I asked, dropping my voice to a whisper. “Anything about…?”

Jack smiled crookedly. “O’ course I did, love. He’s here. Been here for years, buildin’ a second fortune to match th’ first one he has up above…” He paused and looked at me strangely. I knew I was shaking and willed myself to calm down.

“I’m okay, Jack. Please continue.”

He nodded once. “He is a fixture of high society, m’dear. I know that’s where you’ll find him.”

I sighed softly, then took one of his hands in mine. “I am sorry my foolish quest has bought you down here, Jack. Will you return above?”

“No, love!” he said, laughing. “I’ve been lookin’ for a chance to start over…for somethin’ new. I was gonna try my luck in the Americas…but now there’s no need. I’ll be here quite a while, my dear.” Jack leaned over and kissed me on my cheek, his lips dry and warm, before he turned away and vanished down the street.

I had a lead, small though it was.

New to Fallen London

It is hard to say. If I did not have good reason to be here, would I have come at all?

I must not divulge how I arrived, lest I reveal too many of my connections to the World Above. Suffice it to say that one day I had been used to seeing the sun, and the next I awoke in a stinking damp gaol.

I sat there shivering for a while, unsure of what to do next. And then I received a note from a Mysterious Benefactor, and a pair of very shiny shoes. “Take heart,” it said, “there is always hope.”

I started to dig, to watch the movements of the dirigible that delivered supplies, to try and strike up a friendship with the gaolers. Anything could help. And finally, after what might have been hours or days, I made my move. Before I could lose my nerve, I jumped onto the dirigible, my stomach lurching. My hands searched for something, anything to grab onto, until I latched onto a rope and hung for dear life. For once I was thankful for my hours of manual labor–though my muscles burned, I was able to make it until the dirigible arrived in London.

Except it wasn’t my London. It is a twisted version of my city. The ravens are pure white, and they sing beautifully, though I have seen them pick at carrion. The Bazaar is everything here, and many sell their souls–or worse–for a few pennies. There is no sun, no natural light, no clouds or wind or rain. And, happily enough, I do not stand out here as I did back home. Perhaps because it is too dark to tell the difference. Or maybe it does not matter. I am not sure.

Yet there are still the haves and the have-nots. My station in life has not improved greatly. Yet I will keep looking for what I seek. You will not escape me, Mr. Harlowe. I will die before I let that happen.
