New Wendig flash fiction challenge

Chuck Wendig issued the challenge, I'm taking it up. Pick a subgenre, a conflict and a must feature item and off you go. Head over here to see the parameters of this week's one, I'll just share my results of spinning the virtual wheel.

And the draw is:

Subgenre: 9. Steampunk. I'm delighted by this. I'm bloody glad I missed teenage Noir.
Conflict: 5. Enemy at the Gates! Again, brilliant. Ideas are forming.
Must Feature: 2. A Forbidden Book.

So, I need to write a 1,000 word flash fiction Steampunk where there are enemies at the gate and a Forbidden book needs to feature. This could be fun! Now to ensure it's actually good.
