Author has written 19 stories for Transformers, and Transformers/Beast Wars.
Update 6-6-2012 With the mass purge of fiction taking place at ff.net, I want to remind readers that DDG/POV/Socket-Verse has an archive on Livejournal which can be found at -- Femme4jack
UPDATE 1-14-2012 Femme4jack is continuing the storyline found in Dark Nobility, and has planned 4-6 additional chapters to bring that story to a close, the first of which is now posted.
Welcome to the Points of View & Dathana de Grey AU Transformers fanverses. We are a multi-author community playing with the concept that Cybertronians need organic energy (in the form of sensations and feelings from sentient organic beings) for the very survival of their sparks.
Many of our authors have their of ff.net accounts. We encourage you to check them out!
The Points of View verse was originally created by Femme4jack and Aniay. The stories on this account include both the original POV verse stories, as well as AUs from the original verse.
The experiment was continued by Gatekat & Femme4jack in the ongoing story Dathana de Grey (Shades of Gray in Gaelic). We also have created prequels and stories far in the future. We have been helped by many others whose names are on the various chapters.
Content Notifcation: Nearly every story here has some form of Mech/Human explicit relations. Our verse contains xeno (mostly human/transformer), and sticky mech/mech and mech/human sex. Please note individual chapter warnings for dub-con or non-con, or other triggering content. All content will be clearly labeled. One of our purposes for this verse was to explore how power dynamics impact choice, consent, free will, and love. In addition, the DdG storyverse often has allusions to or actual occurrences of mechpreg.

UPDATE AUGUST 24, 2011 (Pertains to Dathana de Gray/Dark Nobility Storylines)
Gatekat and Femme4jack have decided to discontinue their collaboration in the Dathana de Gray fanverse.
We want to thank everyone else who contributed to the Dathana de Gray fanverse: Aniay (the original co-creator with Femme4jack for the POV verse that helped spawn Dathana de Gray), Chai16, Wilderness, Zomgitsalaura, Fallentaiyoko, Prophetbot, Ace_of_the_arts, Antepathy, Laulun-siivet, sakon76, thepheonixqueen, Flybystardancer, baka_no_neko and Karl Wolfemann.
We also would like to thank Nessus for her amazing artwork that accompanied the series which can be found on in the archive at Artist: Nessus and the artists who accepted commissions for various characters: Yamatonix11, SJWerst and Alteride.
And most of all, thanks to all of the readers who have left such encouraging feedback on the project.
The past year and a half of writing has been extremely creative and fulfilling; I have had the opportunity to delve into subject matter that has been intense, exciting, and very moving to me. I apologize to our readers that our collaboration is ending. Over the past year I have truly come to love the characters in these stories - the ones I wrote, Kat's characters, and the ones whom we shared. I am deeply grateful to Gatekat for the time, creativity, and energy she gave to this project in terms of writing, and also all she did behind the scenes in terms of keeping this monster organized.
I may, at some point in the future, continue do some solo writing or collaborations in this fanverse, including its existing storylines (Dathana de Grey and Dark Nobility), but not until after some other projects are complete. Any such stories will be posted on the sockets account on ff.net, and at tf_socket_fics.livejournal.com. All of my other stories can be found at femme4jack on fanfiction.net, femme4jack on Ao3, femmefics on dreamwidth, and femmefics on dreamwidth.
It's been an interesting first year in the fandom for me. Full of the good and bad that comes with any fandom. Full of learning. I'm still not entirely sure what to think of it all, but I'm still writing TF. So I'm not going far even if this is very different from my home fandoms.
Everything non-DdG is posted on Gatekat.
