Currently working on (in order of priority)
EDIT: 8-15-10 ... haven't been doing much TF writing as of late. One of these days, I'll get to it.

Aldebaran Rising
Autobot City has become little more than a pit stop and a garage for inter-galatic transports, where it had once been the hub of Autobot activity. And no one feels the drop in status more than Co-City Commander Trailbreaker. Status: Haitus.

28 Solarflares II
As the name implies. Status: In Progress ... as much as my wavering attention can handle.

Illusion of Fate
Sequel to Spectral Analysis. Relations between the Maximals and Autobots are still as tenuous as it can be; meanwhile, the Predacons concoct a plan that will create civil war between the two halves of the faction. (A working knowledge of the events of SA is necessary to understanding the conflicts.) Status: HIATUS!

Between a Rook and a Hard Place
Sequel to Illusions of Fate. The Quintessons were responsible for bringing back Optimus Prime and the rest of the slaughtered shuttle crew. Now, rumor has it, someone has kidnapped several Quintesson scientists with the intent on resurrecting ... Megatron. Status: Bare concept stages.
