This is merely an opinion, but I wonder if anyone shares this.
Victoriana and Steampunk do not have to be linked together. That is, the tropes of steampunk do not have to include Victorian England. That location/Era certainly could be included but in order for something to be steampunk is it necessary? I don’t think so, in fact I am quite sure I could at list at least one or two things that don’t include Victoriana that most would find Steampunk.
It irks me when people assume such a narrow view of the genre (or any genre).
Just a mini rant, but thanks for reading 🙂
