Cyberpunk is a sub-genre of science-fiction. Some fandoms fall under that header due to their canon, such as Blade Runner or The Matrix, and thus have many fanworks staying within that genre. In other fandoms cyberpunk can be realized as alternate universe or especially in SF fandoms as a stylistic choice with just slight twisting, without it becoming AU entirely.
