There’s no such thing as a friendly reunion between long-separated comrades when Starscream is involved. )

Notes: This was originally published on Livejournal in July of 2009.

Earth’s attention was on itself after Mission City. Perhaps someone should have been looking outward instead, and keeping an eye on the mech who fled the scene. )

Title: An Unprecedented Enemy
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: The President of the United States... that's pretty much it, really.
Notes: I needed to start the 'Rise of the Fallen' 2007 Bayverse Transformers AU somewhere. This seemed like a good way to do it.

When very, very big things happen, the American public looks to its leadership for answers. Sometimes, it even gets them. )

Been considering how to tune up the old Milliways 'Rise of the Fallen' AU so as to file off all the multiversal serial numbers, so to speak. Have figured out several options for what I need to do. Several of them involve names like Minor Scale and Misty Picture and words like 'vircator'. Most of them cause me to violate Rule 87 of Skippy's List.

Pretty sure that's a good sign.

So, uh, [personal profile] mephron, [personal profile] madb, other folks who might have been involved or who might be interested...

One of [personal profile] hellkitty's posts about Cybertronian society the other day caught my attention and kicked loose a thought that had been bound and gagged in the bottom of my skull for quite some time, originally since watching Revenge of the Fallen, but particularly since watching TF3. The thought in question was "PRIMUS ON A POGO STICK, I COULD DO BETTER THAN THIS!" It's not going away. I was wondering if it'd be okay with y'all if I were to take out the stuff that we'd originally been putting together as the Milliways Transformers movieverse AU plot and start filing off all the Bar elements/taking out all the multiversal characters so it could just be done up as AU Transformers fanfiction taking the place of movie 2. Since you guys were heavily involved in the original, it's only fair to ask your permission first. Would that be kosher?

One thing I can't stand about most fictional depictions of dreams is how much sense they make to the waking mind. I don't know how it is in anyone else's head, but the vast majority of my own dreams have, at best, a vague plotline* and some kind of internal logic, both of which only half make sense upon waking up. There's a thread of connectedness from one idea fragment to the next, so it's not total surrealism with no interlinking at all, but it's not enough that it would feel like something that could just as easily happen while awake. When there's more than one consciousness involved in a fictional dream- some entity intruding on the sleeper to get a message across, or what have you- it gets more complicated, but it just doesn't seem like it should take the form of a simple conversation.

All of which is a complicated way of saying that I got the next part of Sam's life at college up at [livejournal.com profile] tangled_metal, which is where all of the NPC stuff for the Rise of the Fallen AU plot is happening. There may be some posts in other characters' journals, like Ratchet or Lissar or Optimus, but for the most part it's centralizing there. And writing for a standard human dream is one thing, but writing an alien consciousness trying to integrate itself with a human one is a pain in the tuchus.

*For example, "I have to get to the cafeteria before the costume store closes, they're selling tiger suits at the salad bar and it's very important that I get one"

**Again, for example, "I am not running fast enough on two feet, so I will bend over and start using my fingers to push off as well, because OF COURSE I can run much faster on all fours than I could on two legs"

Test version of Sam finishing up his goodbyes and justifying a few things before he leaves for college. If someone wants to beta it, let me know. I'll put the final version up at [livejournal.com profile] tangled_metal.

Sam still had goodbyes to say.... )

Question for those of you interested in the Rise of the Fallen AU:

What the hell is Sam going to study? I have no idea what that boy's major is likely to be, just that he's going to Princeton for it. Any clues?
camwyn: (Megatron demands an explanation)
Man, I need to get some more icons for [livejournal.com profile] tangled_metal. In the meantime, the Decepticon sigil will have to do for Starscream filling ol' Shocky in on what happened in Mission City.
camwyn: (Megatron demands an explanation)
It isn't much, but like I said in my earlier post, I'm nervous about my Starscream writing. Would those of y'all who know His Nibs better than I do be inclined to do me a favour and tell me if what I've got here sounds at all like him, and/or the level of overall suckitude? Playing Bumblebee and Ironhide is one thing, but this is something else....

Ngh.

Found an alt mode for AU!Rumble, one capable of explaining why both Silverbolt and Jetfire were needed to take him down. In honor of his earthquake powers, it is, very literally, the Earthshaker.

Imagine that being grumpy because its little brother got killed.
