So what would be the realities of a Steam Punk reality?
Do women have the vote? Do the poor starve?  Is our psuedo-Victorian reality more enlightened than the contemporary Victorian era?

I guess it boils down to whether if we each have our own Steam Punk reality?

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Too many to count. There are barely any constraints on the definition of what is Steampunk. Is it an alternate timeline? A complete alternate reality? A possible future? There's no answer.

My steamsona's fiction is that we are Adjacent Reality explorers, to smooth over the fact that every one of us all at the same steampunk event will describe their world differently.

Somebody's always gonna be oppressed, either because it makes a good story to rise against or because there's always jerks who don't mind standing on other people to lift themselves up.

The reality is that there would be no floating buildings or flying giant squid.

Because the people in the  buildings caught and ate all the flying giant squid and have, in consequence no motivation to continue floating.  I mean, what's the point if there's no squid left to enjoy?

You are what you eat.  When the formerly floating populace realize their neighbors are now also squid, they take off in droves, hunting each other.  Buildings swooping in to feast on tenement and mansion alike as they consume the squid-fed denizens as a cabal of calamari cannibalism.

At last, exhausted by the constant battle, one desperate soul leaves the upper city levels and descends to the subbasement strata where, growing on on the ancient foundations, he discovers ..... whelks!

Yeah.... I use steampunk as a mechanism to temporarily escape reality (which, sometimes, can be utterly soul-crushing).  So why would I want to want to introduce reality (=source of misery) into my happy place?

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
