Steampunk society’s harsh rule (Belle)

This new, steampunk world seemed to have passed me by even though we were already in season five. I had read the listings in Radio Times and was astonished to see that one of the characters was campaigning in real life for UKSG against ‘click per view’.

I was in the crowds travelling on up escalators to the stadium. On another escalator a man was wearing a home-made cardboard castle on his head. Concerned that I stood out from the crowd, I asked a friend for advice. I discovered it was a considered a major offence to repeat yourself in this world. “But what do we DO?” I asked. “Oh, we diminish things”, she told me.

For some reason this was the funniest thing I had heard and I found myself laughing and repeating it. I had already broken the rules.
