Look at this! OMG. 😍

My awesome friend Exie (who is totally NOT a brick) wrote a ficlet that follows on from the one I just posted, with the exception that hers is infinitely more adorable.

Late Nights and Early Mornings

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Transformers - All Media Types
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Thundercracker (Transformers), Starscream (Transformers), Skywarp (Transformers), Skyfire (Transformers), Original Cybertronian Character(s)
Summary: Celerity finds out TC has a hobby, and that his family is loud (but that wasn’t news to anyone).

Take the Initiative

Title: Take the Initiative
Series: Transformers, G1-based “Blue” AU
Rating: PG-13 I guess? Do TF cusswords count as swearing? *ponders*
Notes: Tired of watching Celerity allllways sighing at TC's office door, Skywarp takes the initiative to play matchmaker. It doesn’t go quite as planned, but it isn’t a total disaster, either.

Not sure precisely when this is set, other than "some time between Future Tense and Remember Me".

And additional NB: Lara is a BIG girl – not quite as big as Hardline, but close (taller than new-model Seekers, definitely), and built rather like a brick outhouse. She's... not sure how much she likes being THAT BIG.

“Grounders,” Skywarp snorted, deliberately baiting Thundercracker's deputy for a response. “Never can handle their high-octane fuels.” )

So I wasn't planning on uploading this but eh, it's productivity. I spotted this on tumblr this morning and I went "oops. I think this is me right now?"

In case it disappears, it says:
"real writing tip sometimes you write your best stuff when you don’t even try or don’t even think about ever publishing it or doing anything with it
you go: imma write this for me and next thing you know you’ve written 60K and you have an entire world and plot and you wonder why you didn’t indulge yeARS AGO
"
(Audrey Rose B.)

I'm still not really planning on doing anything with this, but it's still productivity, right? And we all know what they say about plans.

Some disjointed notes! Kitty-giraffe is lost, cold, and wet )

Maybe now she'll get out of my head?

Title (chapter): Remember Me (06)
Series: Transformers, G1-based “Blue” AU
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Muuuch later than I wanted, but it's better late than never, right?

In which Skywarp comes up with a plan to rescue the kids! It’s a terrible plan, but it’s better than no plan at all – right, Screamer? He probably ought to have run it past his bros before swinging straight into carrying it out, though.

Slipstream had already lost track of the number of times he’d been sent sprawling, when his captors finally hustled him into a cell and kicked his feet out from under him again. )

Santa Thrust?

keaalu: Clear icicles dangling down on a chilly background (Icicles)
The peanut gallery (well, one peanut in particular) says SMILE MORE, SANTA, you'll scare the kiddies!
Thrust says WHY SHOULD HE SMILE, how's he gonna look like a handsome, debonair gent for the ladies NOW?

I think he should just keep righteous vengeance in mind. A certain seeker might end up looking like Rudolph, after all, when he gets a damn good punch in the faceplates.

Edit: WHY DIDN'T I USE THIS FOR THE INSIDE OF MY CARD THIS YEAR, argh. I actually don't mind how it looks, for a change. XP
keaalu: (Default)
I don't really have an excuse for this. ^^ It's highly stupid and mostly cracky and fell out of my headspace when my alarm clock poked me out of some delicious REMs, one morning.
(In order to be sure I actually wake up, I have to have three alarm clocks and they all go off randomly at 5-7 minute intervals for about 30 minutes before I'm actually AWAKE. For the first few minutes of that I'm still bumbling around mostly in REM, so I end up getting some pretty vivid dreams. I just don't manage to always write them down - which is something I think I need to change, ha.)

And of course, I've dreamed about various Seekers (and their progeny) a number of times, lately. This is one such dream; the approx 1700 words of prime stupidity that floated to the surface of my brainpan this morning.

It's a bit of a spoiler, as it's set waaay into the future of the Blue AU, some time significantly AFTER the end of "Future Tense" (which I'm still working on, I promise! I just have some major plot surgery to do), when a certain are-they/aren't-they couple have FINALLY decided that yeah, they've yelled at each other for long enough, and they've enjoyed interacting/playing mad scientist enought to want to get back together. (Because we all know they will, eventually, even if it does take TC banging their heads together to knock a little bit of sense back in?)

The reason for the little sojourn to Earth is probably just so that el Screaming one can upset the delicate inner balance of the Ark, but didn't count on his own inner balance being the one affected. Thousands of years of relative peace do not negate the desire certain Twins have when it comes to pranking certain jets.

I accept no responsibility for the breaking of brains. Read at Own Risk.

Hello, Chicken )

(Edit: I knooow, it goes very OOC towards the end, haha. But hey, it was a dream, I can't help it if my subconscious does weird things.)

Notes: I think little Seemy is going to have made himself a bit of an enemy-for-life, here. :shifty eyes:

Thank you all again for your reviews. :) Sorry it's got slow between updates, again - but I promise not to drop the ball! ;)

Sorry Ex. Still no desert hugs! I ran out of room. Next one, I promise! ;)

Rating: PG-13
Summary: And we're off to Egypt!
Notes: Thank you again to my reviewers. :) Sorry I'm making you wait so long between these things, I seem to end up doing about nine things at once these days and keep going off-track. :hrms: I did have a smidge more for this chapter (and I wanted to give TC some more airtime) but I found a good place to stop it. Hopefully that means it won't take so long to get the next chapter up.

Anyway. Hope this chapter is a bit better, even if it is another "talker". :shifty eyes:

Notes: ...I has a cold and my brain hurts. I apologise for any typos. You'll all be relieved to hear I'm getting close to the end for this one. ;) If you watch my LiveJournal you'll probably already know I do have ideas for a third story, titled "Future Tense", but I'm planning on leaving that one until after "NaNoWriMo" - trying to keep two stories on the go led to my miserable failure last year. ;)

...one of these days, I'll write something I'm happy with. And I won't read other people's things and get too dispirited to finish. Bah. -_- Oh well. On we go.

Giftarts. *gleee* *squish*

Warped - arts!
(lineart for the above)

And (unrelated) I think certain people should leave these in discrete places around the home for Warp to look at:
Caring for Baby!
(Thank you Gonard for breaking my brain *headdesk* ;)
And "Clearing baby's nose" looks wrong BOTH ways. O_o I'm sure those air-puffer things usually say "Do not squirt into orifices.")

Now to get back to work on the latest chapter.

Edit: OMFG I DIDN'T EVER LINK TO JILL'S FIIIIC *slaps self*

A companion piece to "Unaccompanied Minors".
Go read, go go goooo.

Nebula! (Art under cut) )

Aaaaand a rambley cross-post off my devART journal. I prefer my ElJay for stupid crap. *nods*

    SO! Okay, so this had a point to it when I started to write it, but when I read back over it I realised the point had gone walkies. So… go fig. Anyway. I’m not feeling ranty or angry or anything, just… thoughtful.

    Aaaanyway! I was taking a break from writing last night – “lol, don’t you mean the writing WAS the break among all the endless web-browsing?” – and came across a pic that made me think. I forget where it was, precisely, or who the characters were (I think they were OCs?), and it was well-drawn and kinda cute and everything, but… my brain went “…buh?” and just kinda twisted in on itself:
    Daddy transformer was putting a nappy/diaper onto his little girl transformer, and then in the second picture Mummy was breast-feeding it.
    OK, I know, Transformers are “ridiculously human robots” in the first place. They talk like people, socialise like people, fight like people, refuel like people… At what point can someone no longer suspend their disbelief? I mean, sure, I like the idea of “ridiculously human robots” – to a point! (I know, I know, “then why make them robots at all” some will cry – and that’s a can of worms I’d care not to open right now. :P But anyway!)

    I mean, in the first place – nappies. Robots… in nappies. Aside from the fact that FUCK that would be one huuuge nappy, this requires that the baby robot, well… poops, right? So by that token… so do the adults? It’s not new, no, I have staggered blindly across some terrifying badly-written rather-abusive “watersports” stories involving TFs – and yes I know Bumblebee peed (after a fashion) in the 2007 film (and THAT made me go wtf as well), but robots urinating? It just seems… no.

    So I guess it boils down to me just being my usual nitpicky self. :P Yeah, I can accept a machine loving a non-machine, but when they get to popping out babies? Not to recycle a point, but HOW IS BABBY FORMED?! Robot breast-feeding a baby robot? NAPPIES? I just… buh. Even machines with big huge pregnant abdomens make me go “…whuuuut?”

    All right. SO. The point was, where do you lot suspend your disbelief? Does "robot + biological + magic = babby" = OK? Orrr... does ANY idea of a similarity to biology (including just a coding-intermix) = RAAAGE?

    See, the point has run off. BAH. I’ll shut up. I need to go wrangle an over-energised Seeker back into his storyline.

Title (chapter): Warped (19)
Series: Transformers, G1-based (“Blue” AU)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In which Pulsar is "rescued", and Siphon puts Plan B into action.
Notes: OK, should I deny any responsibility for this one? ¬_¬

FYI, Pulsar and Forceps' home district has a name now. ;) "Deixar" - it's Catalan/Portuguese for "to leave, to abandon". I also considered "Rustig" (Dutch for "quiet", I think?) - I liked it because it has "rust" in it ;) - but it wasn't quite what I was after. Maybe Rustig can be the next town over?

Anyway, enough rattling! On with it.

It's an audit day at work, it's lunchtime and we've already done all the work, and I'm bored. ERGO. MEME-TIEM.

Half-afted Transformers meme )

I'm thinking of doing Jill's meme as well but depending on how you look at it, I either don't have many TECHNICALLY "on the go", or else I have a bazillion.
