Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Not Don, thanks. I'd like a writer who actually cares enough to do the job properly

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

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

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  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*

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.


Edited by Copper Bezel, 18 December 2017 - 03:44 AM.

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.

Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

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)
