As a Mad Scientist... it is in the job description to light up some beakers with mysterious glowing liquid and create. Today I am revamping the Tuesday Teaser meme hosted by Lady MizB @ Should Be Reading. Knicker Teaser is the twisted creation. I will provide you with Steampunkery Knicker Teasers and Literary Samplings as well.

Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
A rain of tiny black petals began to fall on him. Looking up he saw that the people were throwing them, tossing out handfuls that fell on the cobbles and made a fragrant dark carpet on the road. And he saw that the petals had a peculiar quality, that as they touched each other they melted, and that the gutters and streets ran with a sticky, clotted mass that exuded the sweetest of scents.
