UPDATE 2 FEB 2008: WOW! It's been a LONG time since I've updated here. Sheesh. Well, I've had a few months of some major, major, MAJOR life changes. (Did I mention they were major life changes?) Lessee, I got out of the Regular Army and joined the National Guard. I sold my house and moved halfway across the country to attend school, which means I had to pack up my entire life and ship it to a new place to live, which also happens to be about 50-70 degrees colder than I'm used to. A very serious three-year relationship came to an unexpected and somewhat disappointing end. Partially because of all this, my Muse has gone into hiding- at least until I find her and poke her with a stick. My "peanut gallery" is mad at me (despite, or maybe because, of new additons) and refuses to fill my echoingly empty headspace with dialogue and story ideas. I did write a little one-shot for the LiveJournal "Transformers Mech Exchange" community, which I'll post here. Other than that...with things still up in the air, other stories are still in a holding pattern. (Shock, Loss, and Solace remains on hiatus.)
I'm a self-confessed Transformers Fan, joining the (apparently) many ranks of female Prowl fans out there. But I actually have a T-shirt! ;-) AND it's signed by Michael Bell! Woot!
I'm a complete amateur writer and artist who prefers to draw fantasy art. Crystal Shekeira is the person responsible for my creating an account here- both through her awesome TF fic writing and her kindly pointing out others who have fantastic talents.
My first few stories have started plunking out of my keyboard and somehow wound up here. :-) Other stories are forthcoming as I get time and motivation to write. Some will involve strictly G1 characters (I just couldn't really get into the show as much after TF:TM. My poor childhood was traumatised! -wink-) and others would involve a mix of G1 and my own TF character, Flamestrike. My stories will parallel Crystal Shekeira's version of TF history (with her permission, of course!) and I write some of the same scenarios from a different viewpoint.
Flamestrike is my intellectual property and if you really feel that you'd like to draw/write about her, please ask permission from me first! I promise I don't bite...much.
Transformers and their characters are © Hasbro et. al. I don't own 'em.
Some stories I have bouncing in my head...most are just plot bunnies, but I want to get 'em out here so I don't forget them later. Most have a scene or two that got stuck in my head, but I have to write the rest. Please don't steal these ideas, thank you.
Shock, Loss and Solace - G1/OC: Flamestrike loses Prowl during the events of TF:TM. This story involves her subsequent reaction and recovery. (In-progress) Chapter 6 in progress
Field Exercise - G1/OC: The Army Soldiers at Fort Campbell have requested Autobot assistance for a training exercise. Optimus Prime thinks it's an excellent idea and asks Prowl and Flamestrike to pick a squad to participate. (In-Progress)
Monty Python and the Twins - G1: The Twins watch "Monthy Python and the Holy Grail" and are now amusing themselves. Written in response to the "Use this Line" challenge on The Padded Cell. (Complete)
Twinning - G1: Twins aren't all the same, are they? (Complete)
Transformers Mech Exchange - G1/OC: Stories based on characters in an art/story trading community. (Updated as necessary)
The plot bunnies keep breeding faster than I can write, so here are some ideas for future stories for my own reference... PLEASE do not take these!
A Dozen Ways to Say "I Love You" - G1/OC: Prowl might not be the most demonstrative bondmate, but Flamestrike is shown how he feels in little ways every day. (Not started)
Remote Control - G1: Wheeljack has a new invention... (Not started)
In Their Shoes/ Switcheroo - G1: Gotta pick a title... The Autobots have been restless with a lack of Decepticon activity. Prime finds an unusual solution to end the in-fighting... (Not started)
Perpetual Wind Machine- G1: Wheeljack comes up with a brilliant idea to harness the power of two of the more...shall we say... enthusiastic Autobots. (not started)
