Last day i discover this:
http://www.sunnyskyz.com/blog/153/20-Terrifying-Two-Sentence-Horror-Stories-I-Didn-t-Think-It-Was-Possible-Until-5-When-The-Hair-On-My-Neck-Stood-Up

So i thought than in the same spirit we may make 2 sentence steampunk story.

Lets Rock And|Or Roll:

a-Would you believe i just fighted and killed my doppelganger ? Meh, with the scallywag done with i can now test my time machine.

b-What is walking on four legs in the morning, two at noon and three in the evening ? I don't know but i have it contained in my lab.

( Okay, i know, i actually stole that last one from nightvale)

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Maria di Narni was having whiskey with a gentleman caller. Suddenly, one of the pistons in her leg caught in her skirt and she slumped forward, lifeless.

I've done it, I've developed a universal solvent.  Now all I have to do is work out what to keep it in.

My friend said he could intimidate bears. The undertakers did a marvelous job with his face.

Carruthers, I'm most intrigued by this new "Steam-Punk" you speak of - how does it work?

Well, you see this cog?....

He carefully cocked the carbine and levelled the beastie's head in the sights.  It turned at the sound, its great maw opening, the remnants of a very similar rifle falling from between its teeth.

Crippled and debilitated with rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. Bowmaster would often contemplated his clockwork cat. Without this strange creature's regular gifts of mice and birds the Doctor's lonely and forlorn existence would have ended in starvation a long time ago.

When I have lost my way or, indeed, my mind, I abandon the twisted metal, the broken glass, the dusty workshop... the canvas-sheeted hope. Blinded by obstacles, I return to the place where I may remember how to dream--beneath the stars with you.

Smashing its way through the front door - splintered wood sent flying - the steam-powered automaton began to climb the stairs, to obey its command of assassinating Professor Verity. Fortunately for the noted academic, the weight of the iron monstrosity was too great for the stairs to bear, and the deadly automaton plunged through the stairs and into the cellar below.

The haggard man took off his dusty hat and produced a small, embossed silver fish from inside it. "Haha! They'll never catch me!" he squealed as he used the intricately cut fish to unlock his cell door, circumnavigated the maze of corridors, sneaked past the night watchmen and padded across the asylum courtyard, nimbly leaping over the rickety gate and disappearing into the curling mist.

The woman stood there, a part of the crowd, yet not part of it.  It has been many years since I have seen her face.

The woman put her hand on Emily Brightcannon's arm, then gasped to find the cool solidity of iron rather than warm flesh. "Dr. Carnarvon sends his regards," said Emily with pity in her voice.

He checked the knot around his waist and wiped his brow with nervous fingers. If you are afraid of heights, you really shouldn't become an airship captain.

The dream had been vivid; being chased by the vilest creatures of my imagination their teeth and claws trying to contact my person so I ran untill I fell over the edge of a dark abyss.
I awoke in a hot sweat, after turning the light on, the sweat I realised was blood.

The arcane rituals contained within the ancient texts were complex and difficult, but he had mastered them and succeeded in rending open a portal to another dimension through which he had passed, only to find the horrific creatures who dwelt there attacking him from all sides, and only his rapid retreat through the portal saved his life, although not without loss - four of his fourteen tentacles had been severed, and would take much time to regrow. As he swam through the inky blackness he seethed with rage at those ugly monsters, with their awful dry skin and far too few appendages (just five, if you counted the stumpy one at the top of their stunted, inflexible bodies); once he showed his dad what they had done, they be in real trouble...

The temporal discontinuity regulator had opened a doorway to extraordinary adventures. But he had not anticipated having to redraft his family tree on a mobius strip.

Brantley adjusted the reality mirror, cranked the Dyscontinuity Dynamo into position, gunned the Allis Chalmers diesel four-lunger into medium output, and as the elliptical and rhomboid gears of the Chronojump Actuator began clanking and whirring away, he thrust the electrical feed lever to "Max" and held on for dear life as the Beau Rosin leapt forward past the portal's event horizon. As the sparks from the blimp's scraping acquaintance with the portal's edge erupted around the wheelhouse and Mad Jack bellowed his displeasure, MW writhed his back tentacle at the thought that perhaps this time he was truly testing the Committee's wrath; Uncle 'Thulhu was going to have a fit, he just knew...
