Episode 5: A Night Above Paris

Bonjour! Or perhaps bonsoir, gentle listeners, apply as the current time would dictate. The Davenport sisters would like to present you with episode 5 of The Clockwork Cabaret. What happened to episodes 3 and 4, you ask? Epic failure of the Davenport sisters' recording devices led to an unrecorded third show, an poor Klaude half blew up not only herself, but also the cylinder on which episode four was recorded. She's had a pout and a sulk over that mistake, and hopefully learned her lesson. Which brings us to... Episode Cinq! The sisters hover peacefully above Paris on this lovely February night. Emmett delights with tales of her most memorable visit to Paris and poetry from Baudelaire, while Klaude shares another installment in her modest collection of botched inventions and the sisters enjoy the inevitable visit by Phineas P. Moneyload, Rogue Financier. The sisters also have a thrilling announcement and invitation which they wish to extend via the following aethernet website for your presence attending The Clockwork Ball.
