    Summary

    Or, The Ballad of the Exploding Seeker

    The war is over. Cybertron is healing, and her people are settling into a new era of cautious optimism.

    On a distant mud-ball world, the warlord everyone had allowed themselves the luxury of forgetting sits patiently watching and waiting, biding his time, waiting for the perfect moment for him too to finally come home – and there’s a space on his trophy room shelf for the wings of a certain scarlet traitor.

    (Yes, I'm aware that SB3 isn't finished yet (I'm still working on it!), but I got a bit of my writing mojo back for NaNoWriMo and HAD to get this started!)

    Summary

    Some mechs are born great.
    Some achieve greatness.
    And some have greatness THEIR WINGMATE'S FRIGGIN' BRATS thrust upon them.

    After falling gracelessly out of the 'Cons, and then losing a whole third of his trine, poor Starscream has a headache. (Thundercracker wants to know who doesn't, these days?)

    Summary

    OK, so. As heroes go? Skywarp probably wouldn’t have been anyone’s first choice - even he isn’t entirely sure about it. After a freak accident leaves him lost and stranded in a familiar-unfamiliar version of Cybertron, with no idea how he got there, no way back home, not really even convinced it even IS Cybertron? It feels less like heroics and more like running in desperate circles like some headless fleshie.

    But if you can’t get anyone else to notice the freaking ALIEN INVASION on your doorstep? Sometimes you gotta go against your programming - and what started as a quest to find his way home has turned into a quest for the survival of their entire way of life.

    Latest: Ch 14, where Skywarp flies out to New Vos to avoid Thundercracker visit his fellow alien-abductee, and gets a little useful information to add to his campaign to get-starscream-interested-in-these-fraggin-gremlins-if-it-kills-me.

    (NB: actually the third part of the "Blue" AU, but I need to reformat the first two instalments.)

    Summary

    It’s good to have family around for when you need to get out of a jam, right?

    Whitesides just happens to get into bigger jams than most.

    Setting – Deixar, Cybertron. “Blue” AU, probably about 6-8 years (however they'd define that!) before the missing Skywarp finally reappears.
    (Contains discussion of unplanned pregnancy. Mostly involves a couple of my OCs, with TC and Screamer at the end (if you squint).)

    Summary

    Just a short set in the Blue AU a few orns after the second fax!Skywarp has been, uh, "dealt with". Pulsar and TC sit and talk about how wants and needs don't have to be mutually exclusive, and acknowledge that politely ignoring a problem doesn't always mean it helpfully fixes itself while you're not looking.

    TC seems to have got hold of this one and turned the angst all the way up to 11.

    Summary

    Everybody knew it was a near-certainty that a sparkling raised by former Decepticons would at least have an element of violence in his upbringing, but nobody expected quite such a huge change in Slipstream's behaviour - from that bright-eyed, friendly sparkling to a hostile, belligerent adolescent.

    Just what has happened since his family's trine crashed out of the war to work such a huge burr into the little mech's plating?

    Set somewhere between chapters 2 and 3 of "Future Tense".

    Summary

    Skyfire never paid much attention to the rumours that said the self-styled Pride of the Air Force was a chicken - until, of course, a certain set of Twins got involved. Short, weird, cracky, Blue AU, post-Future Tense dream-induced idiocy.
