Description:

In an alternate universe, the industrial revolution pulled technology further ahead by leaps and bounds, resulting in such marvels as dogs with mechanical limbs and voice-boxes, flying parasols, automata capable of hypnotising people into thinking they are speaking with their best friend and Zeppelins with rigging like clippers. In London, thirteen of the brightest minds of the age currently are employed at a local college and find their lives, and the lives of their closest friends, as entwined with each other as they are with danger and mystery. These teachers form a Society of Academics, devoted to studying the peculiar world around them and not getting bored.

Or, to put it more plainly, it's a steampunk AU where all incarnations of the Doctor are professors at the same college. Most of the action takes place between 1863 and 1887, with a brief resurgence in 1905.

Notes:

The order of stories is the order of publication, not the order in which they happened. There is a lot of overlap between different stories, due to some of them taking place at the same time.

At the moment, there is no set order in which the stories should be read for the easiest understanding of the plot. The only stories which make clear references to being in any order whatsoever are: The Haunting of Wisteria Bay -> Waking Up -> Awaiting Dr. Whitaker
