Welcome SteamScots!  

And so here it is!
Welcome to SteamScots.
Feel free to join, talk about whatever is either Scottish, steampunk, but hopefully is both at the same time! This may not end up being very popular, it's a little specific, but hey, why not??

Sounds like a brilliant idea to me!

I'm not Scottish officially--I'm only Scottish by "adoption" for having done Scottish country dancing for many years (which is why I have a real kilt as well). However, I'm also an academic Celticist, and am into Celtic things in various other ways as well...And am getting more and more into SteamPunk...And I love Abney Park, and think nathan_fhtagn is one of the coolest human beings ever, so there we are!

I think there need to be more overly-specific, niche sub-steam-cultures, and am considering starting a few LJ communities in that regard myself in the near future, once I get some decent icons for them!

I have to agree, Nathaniel's pretty frakin' awesome. This whole thing was by his 'suggestion' after all. I've gotten so deep into steampunk already that I was almost shocked to see how few overly-specific etc. cultures there were. lol. I'm terribly happy to have you aboard!!

I can promise you steampunk is very addictive!!
Hope you don't get bored with the slow moving Scottish group, but if people stick with something new, it will surely be something great!

So then, would a steamrat from Seattle, who wears a kilt now and then, be welcome?

Well of course! Welcome, sir.
