Steampunk AU is an Alternate Universe in which the characters of the Big Four are living in a steampunk world.
About the AUEdit
The Steampunk AU features characters dressed in clothing based on the science fiction sub-genre. Steampunk itself is an alternate universe of how the real life industrial revolution could've played out. This can include a mix of clothing and accessories that involve worn down machinery and clothes from the 19th century.
Popular Spinoff AUsEdit
Hiccup is a genius, often inventing things beyond the time period of even the advanced steampunk age. To parallel his somewhat elevated status as heir to the Chief of Berk, Hiccup is usually in the aristocracy, though not as well-to-do as a royal figure such as Merida or Rapunzel. He tends to spend more time in the workshop than the other people of his standing. Hiccup's mechanical leg, amputated in a workshop accident, is a Swiss army knife of useful odds and ends. Toothless often accompanies him in various forms--as a dragon, a human, a vehicle or even an automaton.
Trickster, conman and amateur sorcerer, Jack Frost is the pauper to the prince and princesses that are the Big Four. Being the oldest of the four, Jack knows what it is like to live in the slums and wilderness of the steampunk world. Because supernatural forces can be found in steampunk scenarios, Jack is usually the one who wields the most magic or other assorted powers. Whether or not he is a spirit, a human or whatever else differs from story to story.
Being a royal can easily make Merida a aristocrat, from the 19th century. Her bow (sometimes portrayed as a crossbow) is given a mechanical design and is sometimes given the ability to fold up when she isn't using it, as well as making it easier for her to carry it around.
Being a royal can easily make Rapunzel and her family aristocrats, from the 19th century. Some of the gears on her Steampunk clothing are sometimes made to look like a sun, and are mostly gold rather than silver or bronze. Fans have even sometimes placed gears in her long, blond hair; much like the flowers that the Healy Sisters had placed in Rapunzel's hair when they braided it for her.
