Hi everyone!

24 April 2020

This has been the longest I've been away from fan fiction, but I haven't entirely disappeared. Nope. Amongst tutoring, forex trading and spending time with my lovely dog Stella, I've slowly started writing again, and look forward to posting Episode 6: The Journey Into Vector Sigma Part 1 (Rise of the Decepticons series) very soon. I also really want to get started on the next chapter of Heroes. It's long overdue and I don't want anyone to think that I've forgotten about it!

On another note, I've decided to leave Ozformers (OTCA) for good, so I will no longer be posting on those forums. Too much opinionated political commentary mainly from the admin lately for me to tolerate.

Finally, I find the following quote by Benjamin Franklin most appropriate during this current COVID-19 crisis:

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety” - Ben Franklin

Hi to everyone who has been waiting for an update on a story, or who is checking in for a status update. So, good news and not-so-good news. The not-so-good news is that I have had to take a break from writing for two reasons; first, I've had to attend to some real life matters and second, the flow or energy channel, so to speak, has not been readily available to me as it normally is. However, the good news is that that does not mean that I have stopped writing. On the contrary, I plan to return to a regular schedule as soon as possible. Hopefully very soon.

On an unrelated note, Before We Were Famous is on hiatus until further notice.

12 October 2019

Oooooooookaaaay… and Chapter 18 of Heroes is up! Whew. Thank you to all the readers who continue to show an interest in this story. It is far from being completed, so there's still a lot more to happen and look forward to. At the risk of sounding cliché, if you have any comments, questions, criticisms, or words of encouragement, even if it's just a single word, please don't be shy to leave a review, or send me an IM. I welcome all honest feedback, mainly because it helps me know how the story is going and how much interest in it there is out there.

Alright, now, so what's happening next? The next chapter of Before We Were Famous needs to be completed, so that'll be next. What else... I'm working on one or two one-shot which I think you will find to be a little on the unusual side? Though enjoyable nonetheless, I hope. Then there's the next episode of the Rise of the Decepticons series, as well as the beginning of a collection of ficlets based upon each Heroic Decepticon's motto. Until then, however, I hope you enjoy Heroes: Chapter 18.

21 September 2019

Sadly, I've been noticing that more and more of the G1 fan fiction fanbase has dwindled away to almost nothing over the last year or so. Am I wrong about this? Observation says otherwise, but I hope I'm wrong. Regardless... I will try to see the point in continuing to post my stories, since they are very much inspired by the classic Transformers cartons/comics and probably don't hold as much appeal to the newer Prime/Cyberverse crowd that has slowly but surely been taking over the number one fan demographics spot.

7 September 2019

Just a heads up to let everyone know that I am in the process of going through my published stories, one by one, and updating them as needed. If you see a note at the top, something like this: "Revised 09/07/2019* it means that the story has been updated. Revisions include:

-Improvements in punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure (minor changes).

-Minor changes in dialogue or descriptions, for clarity.

-Minor story changes, for continuity.

-All references to an Australian Decepticon base will be replaced with references to the North American mainland, or similar. I originally wanted the Decepticon base to be located in Australia, but for the reasons of reconciling continuity issues with other stories, as well as other reasons, I have now decided against this.

-In the story Before We Were Famous, I have decided to replace the name "Windblade" with "Windspeed". This is a major change which I was reluctant to make at first, but after giving it some thought I have decided that it will be for the best. The main reason for this change is basically to avoid any confusion with the Autobot canon character of the same name. The Windblade in this story is (or was) most definitely not the Autobot Windblade who is currently gracing our screens, but a Decepticon OC who happened to share her name. So unfortunately, she will no longer be able to use this name, just so there is no confusion in the minds of readers. (In a similar fashion, the character Knockout in this story is also an OC, and is not the Knockout from Prime, in case you were wondering.)

17 August 2019

Hello everyone. I've finished another one-shot called Last Mech Standing, and am posting a chapter a day until all 8 chapters are up. I wrote it in the span of a few days, while I was halfway through writing Episode 5 of Rise of the Decepticons: Imbalance of Power, which I am now going back to finish.

The idea for Last Mech Standing, if you want to know, was distracting me so I had to get it out of my head. So it goes something like this: What would happen if I took two diametrically different characters (Starscream and Scavenger) and put them in a situation together... that forced them to play a deadly game... against a bunch of other strange or dangerous characters... and with no obvious way of escape... in a race against time? How would the two Heroic Decepticons deal with such a situation?

I originally intended for it to be more of a horror, but it didn't turn out quite that way. Still, it contains plenty of violence and psychotic characters doing psychotic things. Essentially, it's a psychological thriller, and yes it is the darkest fic I have written thus far. But please don't worry if it isn't your thing - it doesn't mean that my writing style has changed or become darker or anything like that... nah. I'm still perfectly capable of writing fluffier stuff. I just felt like taking a temporary detour, and delving into something a bit more "adult" this time. As a fan fiction writer, I like to explore all genres and experiment with different themes and styles, after all. However, if you would like me to write more horror/thrillers for the Heroic Decepticons, please don't hesitate to let me know. Oh, and besides, who doesn't want to hear Starscream use the f word and other human expletives freely? Well, I think it's fun to let him swear, anyway. :D

On the opposite end of the scale, Imbalance of Power is an important episode in helping to establish the reasons behind much of the events that occur in later episodes and series for the Heroic Decepticons, in particular it provides some essential groundwork for the basis of the wars that will be fought against the Autobots later on, including the Great Wars that will take place after the series Rise of the Decepticons ends. This episode offers a number of important insights into the political and economic climate of the time, and correlates the seemingly unrelated energy crisis and resulting planet-wide shutdown with the imbalance of power and corruption that exists among Cybertron’s ruling elite. It is due to be published sometime next week, so look out for it and don’t forget to let me know what you all think.

14 June 2019

FYI: I have signed up as an author on Royal Road, where I am posting Transformers: Heroes as a fan fiction web novel. Speaking of said story, it's a little later than I had hoped but Chapter 17 will be finished next week. Four months has already gone by since the last chapter, wow. Better get busy...

9 June 2019

I am currently working on Chapter 17 of Heroes, which I aim to have completed and posted sometime late next week or early into the next.

I hope you all liked The Spark Trap, which is my latest one shot - oh, and by the way if you think you have a great idea on what might happen next and would like to actually write a sequel for it, please let me know and if your version is in alignment with the Heroic Decepticons guidelines (must be stated) then I will credit you as the author.

Thank you greatly to both Starfire201 and Angry Archer for adding this story to their C2 community collection. I am most humbled.

16 April 2019

Sometimes when a story or an idea doesn't flow, it wasn't meant to be. I've decided to drop the G1 meets the Heroic Decepticons Universe idea completely, and I'll probably never revisit it again. It just isn't meant to be.

The good news is that now I get to start working on a completely new story, before I get back to the next chapter of Heroes.


Stories

Please Note: ALL of my stories (including series, arcs and one-shots) are set in one of the alternative universes that form part of my Heroic Decepticon multiverse. These continuities contain many G1 (specifically US cartoon Seasons 1 to 3 but not exclusively) elements and most (but not all!) of the character profiles are modified from their basic G1 canon profiles - but this is where the similarities end). The Heroic Decepticon multiverse is not based upon the Shattered Glass universe. In basic terms, it is like the normal G1 canon universe but the main Decepticons are heroic and not evil. Which is not to say that the Autobots, as a whole, are made to be the antagonists, but I think that it's high time the Decepticons got a break. While G1 is my preferred canonical 'verse, my stories are in a 'verse of their own and don't follow canon (obviously). While it is possible to tie the Heroic Decepticon Multiverse into G1 canon by filling in the gaps and providing an alternate explanation for some critical canonical events that wouldn't necessarily contradict the established mythos, I am reluctant to explore this avenue because it would be a bit of a stretch and I don't really like the direction the stories would have to take in order to achieve such a tie-in.


Transformers: Heroes

Inspired by, well, the axed Heroes, and also Lost. Not the story lines or characters (it's not a Crossover) but in the way those shows were presented, 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 epic.

This is an ongoing saga, aimed at an adult audience. It is fairly complex (and long). It aims to explore one possible set of motivations in depth in a setting of ongoing conflict between the Autobots (and, more recently, the Alliance - a collaboration between Autobots and Neutrals) and the Decepticons.

I may organize it later on into a number of Arcs, to make it easier to read or follow before it gets impossibly long. Or I may finalise it, who knows. We'll see.

On Reviews and Favoriting...

I would like to extend my sincerest thank you to all those who have provided feedback to any of my stories, have favorited them, and/or are interested in following them. Please be assured that every fave and/or review is most appreciated with heartfelt thanks.

RPG-ing or collaborative fics - Expressions of Interest

If you would like to participate in an online LitRPG (story-based, forum) based upon the Heroic Decepticons Universe 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.

If you have an idea for a collaborative story that would fit into the Heroic Decepticons universe, then please let me know. If you've never done one of these before, they basically involve two or more authors who take turns writing individual paragraphs, scenes, or entire chapters. Similar to the RPG, each writer would be mainly responsible for one or more assigned characters.

Requests

I do consider requests for one-shots, and/or spin offs, Transformers only. PM me with your suggestions and if I can write it into the Heroic Decepticons AU, I will credit you in the story notes.

What I will accept:

- Any genre, any audience, any format.

- Any character/s perspective whether they be Autobot, Decepticon, canon or OC.

What I won't accept:

- Anything too far removed from the Heroic Decepticons perspective.

- Pairings based on romance or sex of any kind for the main Heroic Decepticons.

- Strongly antagonistic Decepticon themes.


What if God was one of us?

Just a slob like one of us?

Just a stranger on the bus

Trying to make His way home?

Thank you for using Deceptitraan II.
