Victorian AU is the most commonly used term for fanworks that take characters from a modern or future-set fandom and relocate them to a stereotypical Victorian romanticism era. It is a form of historical AU.
No fandom is safe from this trope, from The Sentinel to Harry Potter to some other, even more unlikely, fandom. Unlike canonical Victorians, it is relatively rare that much effort towards historical accuracy is made.
