I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 April 2020 - 11:07 AM)

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

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.

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)
