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
The Big FourEdit
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, which is why he is commonly given goggles to wear as they protect his eyes while working. 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. His staff is sometimes featured as a silver hooked walking stick that he carries around or mechanical-staff device that he carries around, while some of the gears that are part of his steampuke clothing are made to look like silver snowflakes; as silver is the closes metal that could stand for ice. Fans have even given him a pair of goggles to wear with his steampuke attire, so they could protect his eyes while flying in the air that would most likely have smoke rising from many factories and workshops.
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 style clothing are sometimes made to look like miniature suns, and are mostly gold rather than silver or bronze. Small gear-like hair accessories are sometimes placed in Rapunzel's long, blond hair; much like the flowers that the Healy Sisters had placed in her hair when they had braided it for her.
Due to the team being a group of young geniuses, their skills in science and mechanics/robotizes can have them as a group of alchemists and engineers. Honey Lemon as the alchemist, with Hiro, Tadashi, GoGo and even Wasabi as the engineers; as Fred uses his aristocrat class to help them with their projects and provide a place where they could work on their projects together. While Baymax being robot is seen as a automaton, that Tadashi had build and Hiro later "tinkered" with.
Their Big Hero 6 armor and gear are sometimes give a steampuke flier and style to them, when they are placed in the AU along with the team.
Being a royal can easily make Elsa a aristocrat, from the 19th century. Because supernatural forces can be found in steampunk scenarios, Elsa is usually the one who wields the most magic or other assorted powers.
Being a royal can easily make Anna a aristocrat, from the 19th century.
Since Steampunk is no stranger to the supernatural, it is possible that the Guardians could exit in this AU and possible be portrayed as themselves or even as human versions of themselves; while wearing Victorian steampuke-styled clothing.
Since Steampunk is no stranger to the supernatural, it is possible that Pitch could exit in this AU and possible be portrayed as himself; while wearing Victorian steampuke-styled clothing. His time and life as Kozmotis Pitchiner can even have him as an aristocrat, from the 19th century.
Due to Von Steamer's steampunk theme, a Victorian and 19th century of him can easily be placed in this AU.
