NOTE ON AUG 26, 2015:
"Night Fire" has been on hold since January 2011! EEKS! I apologize for that, but I've been writing stories as Kyndra Hatch and L.K. Hatchett.
My video on YouTube of the explosions they set off for Transformers 3 in Washington DC on Pennsylvania Avenue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fquR3cI3ITc
I am 38 years old and am a world traveler and travel writer. I am also an Archaeologist, so I find myself whisked away to various travels and digs frequently. In recent years, I've also added 'author' to that list. As such, my updates have pretty much stopped. The photo there is of a freaking huge sherd of pottery that we found at a Late Woodland Period, about 500-700 A.D.(depending who you're talking to), site in the Southeastern United States. It was very exciting and fun to include here, as it covers my face entirely. While it isn't the coolest thing I've ever found, it is, by far, the largest sherd we found on that site, and perfect for the Avatar/Image here.
If someone inspires you to write, or inspires you to add something to your existing work, then think of them in your author's notes. Thank you:)
FICS INSPIRED BY 'NIGHT FIRE' AND/OR USING IDEAS FROM MY STORY:
Fics using my carrying and carry holds/ carry chamber idea (as is written in 'Night Fire'). This idea IS NOT a part of the Transformers history. I developed this idea. The concept does not belong to Hasbro, Paramount, IDW, or any other Tranformers franchise. Keep in mind that I'm speaking of the concept as I have developed it in the story 'Night Fire.' For example, people say 'carrying' all the time in their stories as applied to 'pregnant' Cybertronians. People even use the term 'carry chambers' to refer to the reproductive chamber of a femme, which is perfectly fine. It's not the terms that I'm concerned with; it's the way they are used. My 'carrying' concept and 'carry hold' concept is a lot different (especially since it is not a 'pregnancy.' I don't believe that an alien race from another planet would have children like humans do, much less a robotic one). I don't explain it here, as it is explained fully within the context of the story. Here are links to fics using the idea. These fics are amazing:

RESPONSES TO REVIEWS:
I HAVE FAN ART TOO!
You should also check out her gallery. She is an extremely talented artist.
She even made a fanvid!
Seems I've lost a lot of formatting in the story. A lot of pagebreaks have disappeared, so there may be some confusion during point of view changes. I don't know why this happens, but I seem to lose formatting once every year or so. I just haven't found the right symbol that won't get edited out at some point or another. I'll try using '8s' from now on. Those seem to remain solid dividers:) Thanks everyone!
