Author has written 17 stories for Transformers/Beast Wars.

Revised for Jan 2018!

All right, so! Here we go again. I did have a profile full of lovely links to other places (like some beautiful fanart someone drew for me), but ff.net seems to have turned off the ability to link out anywhere. Therefore! We’ll go for “short and sweet” instead.

I can be found on a number of websites under the same pseudonym as here (although I use some sites very little these days): hence, I’m on Dreamwidth, AO3, tumblr, twitter, DeviantArt etc. as “Keaalu”.

Please note, I'm not very fast at answering comments - plus, it takes me so long to think of something good / adequate to write, it ends up falling off my "to do" list and I forget to do it. THANK YOU to everyone who has ever taken the time to leave me feedback! I don't know that I'd have had the confidence to keep writing without you all.

For the curious, because I can't guarantee I've uploaded everything everywhere, I’ve put together some useful pages containing links to my other fiction etc. (Obviously, replace "dot" with an actual . )

By Nature, Imperfect by JillDragon reviews
Happily ever after' is a fantasy. In reality life, the universe, and how people relate to one another tend to be far more imperfect, as Starscream discovers. Set in Keaalu's 'Blue AU'.

Happy? Anniversary! reviews
Happy 10th Birthday, Blue Universe! Warp and Pulse swap notes on how long they've been together and managed to not kill each other (intentionally or otherwise). In other words, Starscream STILL lives with a bunch of obnoxious glitches. (Don't give him any sympathy.) G1-ish Blue AU

Take the Initiative reviews
Tired of watching Celerity allllways sighing at TC's office door, Skywarp takes the initiative and plays matchmaker. It doesn't go quite as planned, but it isn't a total disaster, either? (Blue AU)

Drug Dealing reviews
Although she appreciates the determination certain people have to cure her illness, Forceps wishes it didn't leave her feeling like Starscream's science project. (Blue AU)

Remember Me, or, the Ballad of the Exploding Seeker reviews
The war is over. Cybertron is healing, and her people are settling into a new era of cautious optimism. Except on a distant mud-ball, where an ancient warlord sits patiently watching and waiting, biding his time, until it's the perfect moment for him too to finally return – and there's a space on his trophy shelf reserved for the wings of a certain scarlet traitor.

All Begins with P reviews
…plagiarism, passive-aggressive, petty, pranks, and paint! Skywarp doesn't have a whole lot of good ideas, but when SOMEONE *coughStarscreamcough* steals the few he does have? Well. Prepare for war, dudes. (G1-ish Blue AU)

Different Kinds of Heat reviews
Since their little spark-to-spark, Pulsar has started seeing TC in a slightly different, somewhat-less-platonic light. Good job the office is empty this time of night. Blue AU; for reference, this is set just after "Needs/Wants".

Unspoken reviews
Caution: fluffy robits ahead. Skywarp has a question to ask Pulsar, and definitely needs a little privacy from his wingmates to do it. (Blue AU)

Aviation Flu reviews
Perhaps Skywarp should make sure he gets his flu vaccine, next year.

Who'd ever have kids? reviews
Some mechs are born great. Some achieve greatness. And some have THEIR WINGMATE'S FRIGGIN' BRATS thrust upon them. After falling gracelessly out of the 'Cons, and then losing a whole third of his trine, poor Starscream has a headache. (Thundercracker wants to know who doesn't, these days?) And now the absent Skywarp's offspring won't leave him alone.

Future Tense reviews
OK, so. As heroes go? Skywarp probably wouldn't have been anyone's first choice - even he isn't entirely sure about it. But if you can't get anyone else to notice the freaking ALIEN INVASION on your doorstep? Sometimes you gotta go against your code, and what started as a quest to find his way home has turned into a quest for the survival of their entire way of life. (Blue AU 3)

Keeping it reviews
It's good to have family around for when you need to get out of a jam, right? Whitesides just happens to get into bigger jams than most. (Setting – Deixar, Cybertron. "Blue" AU, probably about 6-8 years before the missing Skywarp finally reappears. Involves discussion of unplanned pregnancy; mostly involves OCs, with a little TC / etc at the end if you squint.)

Needs vs Wants reviews
Short set in the Blue AU, a few orns after the second fax!Warp has been, uh, "dealt with". Pulsar and TC sit and talk about how wants and needs don't have to be mutually exclusive, and acknowledge that politely ignoring a problem doesn't always mean it helpfully fixes itself while you're not looking. TC seems to have got hold of this one and turned the angst all the way up to 11.

Anger Mismanagement reviews
Everybody knew a sparkling raised by former 'Cons would have an element of violence in his upbringing, but nobody expected quite such a huge change in Slipstream's behaviour - from that bright-eyed, friendly sparkling to a hostile, belligerent adolescent. Just what has happened since his family's trine crashed out of the war to work such a huge burr into his plating? (Blue AU)

Poultry Excuses reviews
Skyfire never paid much attention to the rumours that said the self-styled Pride of the Air Force was a chicken - until, of course, a certain set of Twins got involved. Short, weird, cracky, Blue AU, post-Future Tense dream-induced idiocy. I apologise!

Blue Shorts reviews
G1-ish, "Blue AU"-based short bits of fluff. Mostly plotless, Seekery, sparkling-y bits of nonsense.

Warped reviews
Grounded, split up and scattered across the globe, Starscream's trine always knew resolving the latest diaster was going to be more than just "find each other and deal out retribution". To start with, what DOES "the Collector" want with Skywarp?

Screaming Blue Murder reviews
G1-ish. Sometimes, all you need is the right sort of NUDGE to get enemies to work together - as Starscream's trine discover when embroiled in a police investigation back on Cybertron. But just what IS that Blue stuff, anyway?
