Thank you for taking the time to read my stories and even my profile. I am female, over 35 and live on the Oregon coast. I am a Christian and was a volunteer firefighter and EMT for over eight years. Currently I work in Marketing as an Admin.
A long time Transformers, Stargate SG-1, Knight Rider and Marvel X-Men fan, hence my stories. I write fanfics for the fun of it to bring a smile and provide an escape. Life has enough of its own sorrows. I choose to be light and laughter in times of darkness to others.
I've got to fix that.
You have got to be kidding!
Now? You think of this now ?!
Is it on the list?
Does that make sense?
Things that delight me:
Reviews, reviews, and suggestions (what writer doesn't?)
Inspiring someone else with a fic piece or clip
Cats and kittens
Pizza, cheese fondue, spaghetti, Caesar salad and hot fresh bread
The beach and ocean waves
Overcast, windy rainy days
Things that frustrate me:
Having so many plot pieces and fic clips there is now a growing pile of yellow legal pad notes that I cannot seem to find the time to sort, type and get up in fics. In addition, the pile is getting taller every day. I finally threw them all in a box and now have a overflowing box to sort.
Setting down to finally work on a story in the right mood with plenty of time on the computer and getting a million interruptions from roommates.
Organizing chapters in a fic, and there is one really good idea that while written down, doesn't fit yet so you keep setting it aside for a later chapter until you get sick of seeing it ! Then it fits but you have five more odd ones like that! Arrggh.
Reading a fic where one of my personal favorite characters get killed off, usually in a stupid, inane way so the misery of everyone else creates the rest of the fic. (Can we say quit killing them off?!)
Reading a great story that develops nicely then changes in one chapter to crud. The writer wanted to "try" a "new and radical idea" and then gets upset when reviews turn into complaints and readers fall away. Don't mess with a long running fic. Good stories are so slagging hard to find!
Trying to upload a chapter you have labored over, only to get a coding error because it is the weekend and all the programmers are home and not on site to fix problems!
Automated spell checker that overrides what you type and you're too tired or intense in the storyline to notice one little change that is obvious to all the reviewers! (rip it out!)
thanks to whitedino for the following:People that write stories where EVERYBODY DIES...THE END. (what, no more chapters? Fine, then no more reviews either!)

And sorry if I missed anyone else. Please e-mail me to add yours. I am trying to update this.
I keep getting the same requests to explain and where I found the information. I stick mostly to canon and tf wiki but here is a few of the most common answers below. If you want to use these explanantions, feel free. They are public knowledge EXCEPT sparkbite. Credit us two girls and use as you want.
CANON- the authoritative, official historical version. In other words, in the 1980’s G1 cartoon, Optimus was a Prime who shared his bond, spark energy or life force with Elita One after she overdid stopping time to save him from the Decepticons. Canon has him Prime and not Bumblebee or Arcee as the Prime and his mate is Elita One not Firestar or Override. Same episode had Ironhide with Chromia. Their pairings are canon and part of the trademarked, patented, official copyrighted and legally owned universe.
SPARK- Sparks are canon in the Transformer universe. It is the life force or soul of a Transformer. It is a physical entity protected inside a mechanical shell that makes up the bots protoform or shell or chassis. As long as the spark is intact, the body can be rebuilt or transfer a spark to a new shell. When the spark is gone, the Transformer is gone. In Transformers the ultimate guide, both Megatron and Prime have “spark chambers” to hold their sparks. A metal shape around pure energy.
I use the idea of the spark transfer to relate to the little sparklings or baby Transformers. Transformer canon instances have established that a spark holds all of an individuals memories, along with their "essence" or personality. Mentioned by Prime himself in a Transformer movie. A Transformers behavior can be modified through programming but there will be a conflict between the programming and the "true" nature of the spark within. Breeding is an intact spark transferring into a new protoform and that being have a personality, and can experience life through external sensors. The outer shell can change, including alt mode or loss of parts via battle damage but the same soul or essence of that spark / Transformer. I researched this on tf wiki under terms “spark” and “personality component.”
BREEDING - I referenced the movie verse with the Allspark being transferable energy, the G1 cartoon where Wheeljack made the new bodies for the Dinobots to inhabit, and The Dreamwave More than Meets the Eye where the protoform or shell is made then infused with a spark to become a living Transformer.
There are family units as the G1 Wheelie (not movie verse truck with that name) crashed with “his parents” and the twins Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are “brothers.” In a G1 episode, Prime refers to Alpha Trion as his “creator” and in movie verse, the ancient Primes refer to Optimus as “their last descendant” and the Fallen called the other robots “his brothers.”
They have a way of reproducing more energy than physical, have families and infuse a protoform with a spark. All of the above is recorded in tf wiki under the term “reproduction” and in the cartoons, Dreamwave comic, and movie verse.
SPARK CALL- A term referring to spark mates being able to recognize each other’s sparks as a single entity. Spark call reassures the mated pair they are one spark, one soul combined and is only felt by them and between them. Sparklings will recognize their parental units but not feel that spark connection, only that it exists and never what that couple is doing.
SPARKBITE- The protective reaction of the spark to defend itself to the offlining if needed. The sparkbite warns another mech not to attempt a spark merge on a mech or femme that is spark mated already. Credit also goes to fellow writer ladyofdarkstar for working this idea out with me. Wonderful example in her "What Comes Around," chapter 33 when Lydia's sparkbite gets Josh. ( Not official Canon...but good enough it should be)
