not too long ago my friend drew this and i was like omg steampunk garage! and then rahmbamarama started giving us steampundits, yes, you heard me, steampundits, which is the most wonderful thing ever, just, with, like. amazing fanart, *amazing* amazing fanart, and fic, and, like, kdfs;dasklsjdf; Stephen Colbert + DIRIGIBLES, okay, and then on top of all that, this happened:
- @ColleenLindsay Paul Jessup just inadvertently coined a whole new genre while IMing me: STEAMPINK: steampunk for tweens. ROTFLMAO! (@pauljessup!)
@ajafair @ColleenLindsay At Clockwork High, to make Aviator, you've got to make The Pinks. Can she swap goggles for glamour, or rise above them all?
@ColleenLindsay @ajafair Um, I'd read that. =)
LOL STEAMPUNK CLIQUE = MY FIRST SUCCESSFUL QUERY. \o/
and then, also today, a flister produced an amazing piece of steampunk!wonderland art, and I basically went okay, OKAY UNIVERSE, I GET IT, I WILL READ MORE STEAMPUNK FOR YOU. Perhaps I am meant to write Victorian Gossip Girl In Space.
So I am turning to Steampunk Magazine as I write this. SEXY.
But, what I mean to say is:
have you any steampunk recs?
Also, have just discovered Brass Goggles, and ! ! ! Omg. My moment of zen has never been so well-oiled.
In other news I think I am going to try maybe writing something for this. In other, other news, today I ordered a copy of Shine, Coconut Moon from my local independent bookstore and swore off Amazon forever.
In other other other news, @feikoi *just* twittered about wanting steampunk recs so I AM POSTING THIS NOW BEFORE THE COINCIDENCES ALL FALL AND SQUISH ME. *SHIVERS*
