Author has written 17 stories for Transformers, and Transformers/Beast Wars.

What to put here, what to put here...

Hmm. I can't say that I am a very prolific writer. Sometimes things spill out onto the page, but then there might be a very, very long dry spell. Many of my ideas come from my amazing friends and RP buddies, so literally half or more of the credit for anything that gets put up here is due to someone kind enough to bandy ideas around with me.

Most of my ficlet bits will be Transformers related, though I will read other fandoms where I am not secure enough to write my own stories.

Some of the stories I write will have romance between an alien (arbitrarily referred to in English as 'he') and another alien (also arbitrarily referred to in English as 'he.') I like it. I'm also het and slash and femmeslash friendly. Honestly, part of me is just plain old and boring enough that most things rather roll off my back. I try to be nice, and adhere to a personal policy of "compliment, concrit, or stfu." Hopefully, most others stick to common courtesy, as well. I love you, nice people! Crazies, I'll simply giggle at.

Just a note, I've had a profile here forever, but have only recently gotten the courage to actually post anything. So most stuff early on will be stories or ficbits that have been languishing in obscurity somewhere back on my LJ for an indeterminate amount of time. Some early works honestly had me cringing a bit when I dusted them out from the mothballs. Oh my, I overuse epithets. I know. At least, crossposting is giving me an opportunity to do some editing on flow and word choice. Editing makes me happy.

There was also a damn long hiatus (try, about a year) of RL beating me bloody with a stick. Pain, loss, being broke, moving, helping others move, all those things kill the muses with astounding effectiveness, but fingers crossed that the novel ideas will cooperate again at some point.

Anyway. I'm no good at profiles, and no one probably cares what I say here in the first place. *grin*

Nice to meet you, have a nice day!

General Disclaimer: I don't own anything of Transformers or the characters, I simply send them through mirrors, or push them around into situations I find amusing.

A Universal Concept by April Raven Girl reviews
What is love? Is it an instinct? An emotion? Or an ability that can transcend species? After eons of conflict, the war-weary Autobots have a new home, a new life, and a chance for something more. And for a single Decepticon, a chance for salvation.

Broken People by Tajjas reviews
The Sky People's technology helps to save Tsu'tey after the battle, but he isn't quite sure what to think of the broken Sky Person in the wheeled chair that keeps coming to visit him while he's recovering. Friendship fic, AU for obvious reasons.

The Burdened by MiyuCat reviews
WARNINGS: Slash, smut, language, violence /the good kind/ , and far too many words. "You're playing a dangerous game, Ghost," warned MacTavish. If Ghost wanted out, he'd better run now, before there was no going back.

After Atlantis by anondecepticon reviews
Canon-faithful, Wheeljack-centric. An alternate ending to the G1 episode "Atlantis, Arise." Raped by Starscream, Wheeljack struggles to cope. Not your standard rapefic. Slash ensemble, multiple pairings. Rated M for mature themes; may be triggering.

It Could Be Worse by Anonymous TF2er reviews
Lonely old RED Sniper comes to terms with himself, life and that snail-eatin' RED Spy. An attempt at character development and actual realistic romance written in response to all the terrible Sniper/Spy garbage out there. AUTHOR'S NOTE: I have published a completely original story as an e-book with this same title, do not be alarmed.

Belong by FanfictionWriter83729 reviews
Movieverse, oneshot. Crack, melodramatic angst, a bit of fluff towards the end. Four ways that our intrepid human characters did not become Autobots, and the one way they did.

The Spark of it All reviews
Set some time in the future, where Autobots have been under the radar except for the government's awareness. It seems that some group wants something from these advanced technological marvels, and is willing to bend morality to get what it wants.

A 'what if' of exploring who the mechs might be as regular people. Ironhide is Jonathon, an old career army grunt; Ratchet is Richard, a workaholic neurosurgeon. Jon's honorable discharge was not the end of him feeling like a soldier.

Don't Let Ratchet Choose the Stakes reviews
The chosen stakes were either a stash of high-grade, or getting to see Ironhide as a femme holoform. And whether the bet was fair or not, Ratchet won. Despite all of Ironhide's growling, Ratch can't resist his mate, no matter what form 'Hide is in.
