@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

This shout is empty.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

Hey all. This is a (much belated) thread for your Transformers fiction links, be it your fanfic, a fic you found you liked, a fancomic, or even just bios and headcanons for toy-only characters. Ultimately, it can be whatever you want it to be. There are a few guidelines, though. 

 

The rules:

  • No sexually explicit content.
  • No gore and general excessive 18+ness. 
  • No grimfic and badfic parody, we have the Machinima thread for that. 
  • Links and description only - never post the content text itself within the thread. (Character bios are an exception but use spoiler boxes for lengthy ones.)

Otherwise, come, share us your words. = ] 

 

Edit: Older fiction from back in the day can be found in the Chronicles of Cybertron Archive.

Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Here, let me break this thread in with a bio!

 

Blight

"Why waste your effort with weapons when you can wear something down with poison?"

Strength - 4 | Intelligence - 9 | Speed - 7 | Endurance - 2 | Rank - 4 | Fireblast - 4 | Skill - 10

 

Blight is known for being incredibly weak, possessing mediocre physical ability and even worse stamina. Why then, is this miniature scientist feared, even among Decepticons, who are known for looking down on Mini-Cons as a rule? Because Blight is incredibly, insidiously, impendingly brilliant, and her specialty is developing both toxins and ways to deliver them. Blight is the brains behind the Ransack Team, and while she may be low on the chain of command, it allows her to remain beneath notice. Unfortunately, her favorite test subject is herself, which has left Blight constantly suffering from the debilitating effects of her own creations, but which also makes her something of a walking contaminant.

Hm, in general, I like them, but parts of them feel like... I don't know, overcompensating to be the exact opposite of Megatronia? I mean, there's a lot that's unfortunate about her, but I'm not sure why the equivalents of Moonheart and Lunaclub are not only not sisters, but one of them hates being associated with her in general.

 

That's probably not what you intended, I'm just wondering if that was a factor, because it kind of sticks out to me.

Here's an oldie but a one I like:

At the end of time, Rampage was the last one who was alive. The various godheads had prepared for their personal Ragnaroks, waiting to be reborn. Humanities' gods realized that in the end, despite all their advancements, their worshipers were finally beaten, and hated the last Cybertronian. Primus looked down at his final child of this universe; all he could muster was a sense of sadness. This reality was one of the most violent yet; the brief deaths of Prime and Megatron bringing on one of the most vicious wars, his brothers attack, and seemingly countless more apocalypses.. Was this really worth it? Was putting his children in the universe, watching so much destruction and terror, and with their only real reason behind existing being chess pieces in a game between order and Chaos. Still, despite all that, he saw their potential. In his final child here, someone who was called epithets like "monster" and "unnatural," ended up saving his children from themselves, and would eventually lead them into brave new worlds. Primus sense his brothers and sisters readying. He took one last look, and gave a brief smile. Perhaps they were a flawed and violent race. But he knew their would always be ones with great potential for good.
As the universe contracted, even Rampage's spark finally gave out. In the final seconds, all that remained was one ember, which became a spec in the void. Trillions of years passed. The spec started to build up, and explode. A new universe was born.
Stars and planets formed. Asteroids collided. Organisms evolved. And life went on.
On a familiar planet, continents make familiar shapes. Weather pasterns twirl all around the planets sky, animals run on the evolutionary planes until the first spark of sentience occurs, and empires rise and fall. And in the year 1984, in ever familiar New York City, a man pics up a phone in his office.
"Hey, Bob, it's Jim. Got a job from Hasbro that no one else is willing to do that needs done before Thanksgiving. You think you're up for the task?"

Okay, let's post some actual fan-fics here:

 

Link Up Me Hearties, Yo Ho!

Series: RID 2001

Summary: Feeling his place in the Predacon chain of command threatened, Sky-Byte contacts an old friend for help in taking Scourge and the Commandos down a peg. However, just how dangerous will this Halfshell and his crew be towards the Decepticons?

Notes: This is a story I wrote for a commission. It features an RiD 01 version of the BW2 Seacons.

 

Illuminations

Series: Various

Summary: A catch-all for short stories and explorations of different characters and different corners of the Transformers universe.

  • Replacement - Breakdown confronts the newest member of the Stunticons about things that are a little too familiar. (G1, Breakdown, Offroad)
  • The Esteemed - A Predacon supermodel takes issue with what an editorial has to say about him. (BW, Injector, Archadis)
  • Endless Skies - After the defeat of Galvatron and the closing of the black hole, an unlikely group of Mini-Cons find each other, and together find an appreciation for the wider world beyond them. (Cybertron, post-series, Clear Skies Mini-Con team)
