Author has written 15 stories for Transformers/Beast Wars, and Transformers.
I've decided to pimp this profile because the last one had been written mostly in the adrenaline rush of finally getting my butt in gear and making an account here.
Hey, I be the dinoknowsall, but most peeps just call me Dino. And to avoid confusion, I'm not the Dino that Knows All. That's the cute green thing that's in my profile picture. Rather, I'm the girl who created/knows the Dino that Knows All.
He doesn't tell me all the things he knows. :(
I've been on this site for a year now, and loved every second of it. I've found some great supporters who feed the ego monster to keep it alive. In case you haven't heard, its the ego monster that drives me mainly, accompanied by its best friend the guilt-trip monster, who I feed. Ego monster says to me: "Look at all the nice things peeps have said!" and guilt-trip monster says "You're disappointing all those wonderful peeps by taking so long to update!" And then I'm forced to update at gunpoint.
As a person, I'm very sarcastic, odd, quite a bit sadistic, and enjoy good books. I'm a pretty damn hard-core geek (it's hard not to be when both your parents have literal shelves of sci-fi books, and you grew up with Star Wars and Anne McCaffery). And for some reason, I'm extremely cheerful on this site. I don't know why, outside of here I'm a really big pessimist...
Oh, and I am a girl. Just so you know.
'Nother thing you should know is that I have a memory like a freakin' leaky sieve, doesn't matter how much I can remember in science. That means that I can easily things that I wrote less than a few hours before. So if I reply to a review/suggestion/PM in a really stupid 'I really wrote that?' kinda way, just roll your eyes and please patiently explain that yes, I did write that, and that by God, I have a horrible memory. Chances are I'll have forgotten.
I admit that Revenge of the Fallen really brought me into the Transformers fandom. Then I realized just how awesome it is, watched some episodes of G1, fell head over heels in love, and have been captured ever since. I love G1, TF:A, Prime, and Movieverse the most, and the only one that I've hated (with a burning passion deep in my fiery soul) is Armada. Grrrrr...
Out of that amazing fandom of awesomeness, I'm a complete Optimus fangirl. He makes me squeal. End of story.
Wheeljack does, too. ('Jack FTW!)
Some fandoms that I read, but don't write for are Star Trek: 2009 (because that was just so awesome) and Axis Powers Hetalia (which just proves how weird the Japanese are).
As for updating: I am in school. That takes up my time, surprisingly. Then add my WoW (World of Warcraft, for non-players) addiction and my best friends with the selfsame addiction, a large portion of my time gets eaten up. Not to mention that I play field hockey in the fall and tennis in the spring. And the lazyness/writer's block that plagues me constantly...
All in all, I update when I can.
As for the stories themselves: don't get me wrong, I love slash (Ratchet/Wheeljack, hell to the yes!). But I was a nonslasher once, being new to the fandom. And I know how damn hard it is to find not slash fics. So, I add pairings only when the bunnies demand. In fact I tend to ignore romance all together, being a) not good at it and b) try to stick to canon the best I can, which means canon pairings. Which I'm not fond of (a bit hypocritically), as I don't really like femmes. They tend to add an element of pettiness I get enough of at school. This does not mean that I think that slash is wrong, or that it offends the characters personalities in some way. I like slash.
As stated above, I try to stick to canon as close I can, while adding in my own beliefs. Such as the fact that Alpha Trion as been (in Exodus) declared one of the original 13, thus making him a multi-versal singularity. Or the whole Primus-Unicron deal.
Anywho, thanks for reading the 'This is me!' rant. Here's what you really care about:
Talons: Sequel to Wings. I'm not too too in love with this, and have lost motivation. So if you came to this profile because you liked that, and didn't review it, you're not helping my motivation. In Progress, not really sure I'm ever going to complete.
Before the War: Companion fic to Wings and Talons. I wanted to do a pre-war fic, to stretch my imagination, explain things that might be confusing in the Wings 'verse and to explore the world up nestled inside the Northern Mountains. Plus to write cute sparkling fluff. Complete (I have no more ideas for it and have moved on.)
Wings: A combo of my two obsessions, Transformers and dragons. Thus Transformers as dragons. -fangirl squeal- Complete.
Well, This is Different: It is back on the front burner. And loving the response for it! XD And for those of you who are currently going 'Is it going to be a cross-over of epicness?!' Why, yes, that is what it was all along. In Progress, one of my 'regular' updates.
Great Minds Think Alike: This is a weird one. But then again, I always get attacked by the weirdest plot bunnies in German... God, guys, I love the response to this! XD Just so you all know I love all my readers for this story. You guys are amazing, and a huge help for the plot via suggestions! Complete.
A Few of My Weirder Thoughts: I don't know... I just--don't know...
Just Sit Back: I like Prowler, and he gets tons of love already. Why can't I show my love too? Plus Opt was being grumpy in my head, and Sideswipe was being silly. Prowl was just exasperated.
Midnight Helper: XD Oh, 'Jack how I love you so... Even when you barely say anything.
No One Mourns the Wicked: -cracks up- This fic amuses me to no end. I keep imagining Optimus in a puffy pink dress, inside a bubble... Then I imagine Megs with green skin... -snicker-
Idea Room: 'Nother I love 'Jack fic. And my ninth published work on this site. Nine holds a special place in my heart. The story behind that is long and complicated. XD But, c'mon, you guys have to know my absolute adoration of the Ratchet/Wheeljack friendship. That is soooo not touched upon in this fandom, and really needs to be.
History: Long, serious. War Dawn as an episode in G1 kinda bugged me, so I had to put my own spin on it. Plus, the fandom (and even canon) has added so much to the story of the War, and to the story of Cybertron, that the ideas in there were outdated. So... I updated Orion's story.
Ancients: Ummm... I don't know what to say... Stupid plot bunnies interrupting my sleep? Eh. Have you guys seen the teaser trailer for Dark of the Moon? I think the guy at the end is Alpha Trion. Admit it, you see the resemblance.
Speaking Through Silence: I've been so quiet for monthssss... Anyway, No idea why Hot Shot was in this. I didn't even like him in Armada, and you literally saw a minute of him in TF:A. So weird...
Live: -bangs head against wall- Goddamn depression bunnies! What happened to the funnies, eh? You just want me to beat on Optimus, don't you! Yeah, I've figured out your plot... So, there's more where you come from, right?
