Those semi-steampunk space shoes · 5:32am
For anyone who receives or read my blog...
I am working on my new story. It is beginning to get to the point where I'm willing to post it up on FiMFic, but not quite. The long and short of it is that I'm writing the story out speculating what it would be like if MLP was firmly set in the 19th century. What I realize this means is that there are going to be some overlaps with steampunk, but I am not going out of my way to write it up as such. Steampunk is a romantic form of anachronistic fantasy, while what I am aiming to do is simply pin down the technologies available in the setting to help with constancy and reduce the likelihood of breaking the willing suspension of disbelief. (Though we are talking about technicolor ponies.)
