DIEGO DIARIES NOTE: PLEASE BE AWARE THAT I UPDATE THE DIEGO STORY EVERY DAY.

WELCOME TO THE STORY FOR THOSE WHO DON'T THINK THEY MIGHT LIKE TRANSFORMERS. I THINK THIS IS THE STORY TO READ TO TEST WHAT YOU MIGHT THINK. ;D;D;D

Some readers tell me that they didn't start this because it was 'too long and couldn't be good' or that they 'didn't like Ratchet and Ironhide paired'. If that is you, know that just about everyone in Transformers is in this story and that there will be someone you like here. This is about rebuilding the empire, gathering people back together and protecting everyone from the bad guys. Give it a shot. Then if you aren't for it, then go with my thanks.

I write this almost every day and have since November 1, 2010, without any end in sight. :D Thank you, readers, for your kindness, great optics, and ideas. You are the best. I try to grow any fandom I write in and appreciate those who share this story. Thank you, readers, through all the crashed computers and crappy glasses. Spring is coming. All is well. Hugs to you. -Arctapus

I love TF: Prime and finally got a plot in my head. This is that story and group in an AU that has their elements but my direction. This is about hidden truths, humor, drama and adventure. This is about humans and bots saving themselves. This is about my reaction to the Autobots always being underdogs. There will be no spoilers.

A River Flows: How It All Began reviews
This story is about how the Canaan Land arc began from Academy days forward. This is the only story that is gritty and worthy of an M warning. All of the others are K or T in this series.
