Home of the Heroic Decepticons!
Worlds and writing style:
Ok, you may have noticed an underlying theme in all my Transformers stories, and you'd be right. The Decepticons (that is, Megatron's Decepticons - not his predecessors or other competitors - just so we're clear) are just awesome! So, if you have an aversion to a different perspective than the norm (Autobots are always the heroic good guys, etc.) then you have been warned. Which is not to say that the Autobots, as a whole, are treated unfairly, as that would not be accurate either. But I think that it's high time the Decepticons got a break. While G1 (US cartoon) is my preferred canonical 'verse, my stories are in a 'verse of their own and don't follow canon precisely (obviously).
Inspired by, well, the now axed Heroes, and also Lost. Not the story lines or characters (it's not a Crossover) but in the way those shows were written, with particular emphasis on suspense, action, drama, and the inclusion of character secrets/back stories, all while revealing the final plot bit by bit. I really enjoyed those shows so I thought I'd try my hand at a similar writing style/made-for-TV presentation for this Transformers story. So far, I think it's working out pretty well.
This is an ongoing saga, aimed at an adult audience. It is in-depth and complex (and long). It aims to explore the motivations and intricacies surrounding the ongoing conflict between the Autobots (and, more recently, the Alliance - a collaboration between Autobots and Neutrals) and the Decepticons. In many ways, it is an allegory to things happening in our own world. Do I know exactly how the story will unfold? No.
I may organize it later on into a number of Arcs, to make it easier to read or follow before it gets impossibly long.
Here's a summary of each chapter so far:
Chapter 1: In this introductory chapter, the stage is set and some major players are introduced, as well as some important locations. Elita One is fed up with her current mission and returns to Cybertron. Megatron boldly confronts Optimus Prime about the Autobot-Neutral Alliance, but the latter is determined to abide by High Council directives. Sideswipe and Arcee unexpectedly cross paths, while Red Alert asks Ratchet some difficult questions regarding events surrounding the Dark Plague. Optimus does some soul searching and reassesses current events before making an unusual request of one of his most trusted officers.
Chapter 2: On Alternity City, five Decepticon jets infiltrate the Subterranean Base to deliver a message, and avoid capture thanks to unexpected help. On Cybertron, Optimus informs his team of the High Council's new directive, while Elita requests a new mission. Jazz begins his investigation, while Ratchet surprises Red Alert with a promotion. The mini-bots are introduced, and a fun night out helps bring out some resentments.
Chapter 3: In a bold move, Elita One takes matters into her own hands and defies authority. Prowl discovers the horrific assault of an Autobot, which leads to an arrest, and a friendly femme returns to Iacon Central.
Chapter 4: An Autobot femme finds her calling, whilst the life of an Autobot is left in Red Alert's care. Jazz interrogates a prisoner and begins to suspect his innocence, but when the High Council interferes with an expedited conviction, he takes extreme action in a desperate attempt to save the prisoner's life. Meanwhile on Alternity City, Jhiaxus' assistant is forced to leave the Base against his will, and Elita One is faced with a crisis.
Chapter 5: Jazz pulls off an incredible feat with some unlikely help. Rook is forced to confront some long buried truths, and must make a decision that will change his life forever.
Chapter 6: Ratchet is tormented by past memories and the loss of his best friend, while Jazz must face the consequences of his actions. Optimus Prime leads a new mission to secure Darkmount. Elita and her crew set up a temporary base, and Thunderblast meets up with a troubled seeker.
Chapter 7: On Alternity City, a bounty hunter corners his prey, whilst an unlikely ally helps Elita and her best friend acquire some much needed energy. Thunderblast has a run in with a mysterious mech and his companion. On Cybertron, the team of Autobots led by Optimus Prime find themselves in a most unexpected situation, while an estranged Autobot warrior discovers some disturbing truths about the Alliance.
Chapter 8: A certain Autobot is hanging on to life by a thread. Sideswipe returns to Iacon Central only to be met with resistance, but is given a message which will change the course of his life. Optimus must make a difficult decision. An old enemy shows up in Binaltech, but the resulting skirmish helps resolve a matter of trust.
If I had only a few words to describe each character... the following have appeared in Transformers: Heroes thus far (in no particular order):
Optimus: stubborn; stuck in his ways
Jazz: Too damned cool for words. Also; he pretty much does what he feels needs to be done.
Megatron: strong, determined, takes no crap, do-or-die attitude
Prowl: loyal, also stubborn
Elita-One: passionate, daring, hot-headed
Arcee: friendly, compassionate, level-headed
Ratchet: introverted with his emotions, fixed in his opinions, seeking justice
Hound: easy-going, friendly
Ironhide: loud, brash, loyal
Sideswipe: non-conformist, does things his way
Bumblebee: sensible, forgiving
Brawn: rough, opinionated
Red Alert: mildly nervous and unsure of himself, mainly around superiors
Chromia: sensible, loyal
Rook: predominately a follower, but with leadership potential that he has yet to recognize
Jhiaxus: an evil *hole
Sentinel Prime: another evil *hole
Bludgeon: an evil *hole
Lockdown: another evil *hole
Astro: can you figure out who he really is?
Scavenger: very sweet, once you get to know him
Thunderblast: You either love her or hate her. Or both?
Comet: can you figure out who he really is?
Astrotrain: easy-going, resourceful
more profiles to add later... Soundwave and cassetticons, possibly Drift, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack?
Transformers: Energon Cubes
This is a complete parody revolving around the daily goings on and (mostly) friendly rivalry between the Autobots and Decepticons during a time when the two factions shared common goals and lived together in harmony - well, okay, maybe not. Just a whole lot of silliness, really.

RPG-ing - Expressions of Interest
I have administered a few Transformers RPGs before, but would now like to start over. So, if you would like to participate in an online RPG (story-based, forum) based upon one or more of my stories (Transformers: Heroes; Rise of the Decepticons series), please message me with your interest and the role that you would like to play. The RPG will include official combat scenarios based upon your characters' tech specs and profiles. Some canon characters are reserved. OCs are welcome. Good writing skills are required. Beginners are welcome, so if you have absolutely no experience with RPG-ing in this style but are willing to give it a serious shot, I'll be happy to guide you through the process, step by step. We'll need at least three other players for an official launch. Guaranteed to be a lot of fun, but you must be available to post regularly.
I do consider requests for one-shots, and/or spin offs, Transformers only. PM me with your suggestions and if I can write it, I will credit you in the story notes.
What I will accept:
- Any genre, any audience, any format.
- AU, mostly G1, G2.
- Any character/s perspective, Autobot or Decepticon.
- Your OC for a one shot, in a supporting role, if a detailed profile for him/her exists (you will be credited for your OC, of course).
What I won't accept:
- Beast Wars, and anything too far removed from the original G1.
- Pairings based on sex of any kind.
- Strongly antagonistic Decepticon themes
If there's a Transformers story you think I might like to read and/or review, let me know. I am always looking for stories to add to my Favorites. Cheers!
My aim is to be a contributor to the Transformers story, be it cartoons, movies, or comics.
