Steaming Punks!

I've just discovered the joys of Steampunk. It's a beautiful aesthetic - based on Victorian era sensibilities (lots of dark woods, silks, brass), clothing (mmm waistcoats), with steam and clockwork versions of technology. I've been reading The Steampunk Home which has a lot of interesting examples of the genre. If you've seen the film 'Wild Wild West' you'll have a good idea of what I'm talking about.

I just watched another imagining, The Golden Compass and did the 'what kind of daemon do you have test.'

What do you think, is it accurate?

It didn't say what kind you were. I am Achaean, a fox daemon.
