Had half an idea while sitting on the steampunk panel at Arisia. 

I also commented -- we were talking about the Edisonade and how steampunk brought that back.  I commented that there were other Victorian genres that weren't coming into use in steampunk.  Like the Ruritanian romance.  (Well, maybe you could argue that Girl Genius has a touch of the Ruritanian romance about it -- but only a touch.)

Am now outlining a steampunk Ruritanian romance.  At least it's a Ruritanian romance now.  Who knows what will happen by the time I get to the end?
