Steampunk meets Tron
I think. I've never seen tron. I hear it's alright. This fic is better than alright, the main villain hangs like a guillotine over the story, but that didn't stop me from laughing at the antics of the main characters and squirming into a duvet burrito when the occasion(s) called for it. The only issue I had with it was the terminology of 'axel' for the accelocycles, and it's possible that's because of my in ability to spell without the aid of computerized assistance. (because axles are like, already a thing)

The pace was excellent and I could feel myself speeding up and slowing down exactly as the author intended, and I normally avoid 'racing' type works but this one has completely changed my mind about the whole genre!
(also the couply bits were like, super cute and my heart is singing in my chest)
