    Default Transformers: Heroes [FF]

    I finally got the chance to write the first chapter of my first Transformers fan fic, and I've decided to share it with everyone here (seeing what such awesome people you all are ). Oh and in case you're wondering, it has no connection whatsoever to my Transform Photo Comics.

    Story Notes:
    Although this story takes a lot of things from the G1 cartoon, it is by no means strictly G1 toon oriented and introduces characters and/or ideas from other continuities (Sentinel Prime, Jhiaxus, Thunderblast and Rook are examples). Set primarily on Cybertron and Alternity City, it also deviates from certain key elements common in Transformers canon. For one thing, the general consensus that all Autobots are good and all Decepticons are bad is challenged, and a new meaning to the motivations behind their conflict is offered (which is a recurring theme in my Heroic Decepticons Alternate Universes). Some personalities have been altered from their original profiles as a necessity and their characters developed to a much deeper level than the original cartoon allowed (Megatron being the most obvious example).

    Introduction:
    A century ago, the eons-old war between the Autobots and the Decepticons suddenly and inexplicably came to an end. Since then, many have gone their separate ways, whilst others still hold onto the bitter memories of war. Now, as Autobots and Neutrals join forces in a new directive to capture every Decepticon still left alive, it appears that the Autobots will finally get their chance to even the score, and defeat their enemies once and for all. But when they become the target of seemingly random, yet terrifying attacks, some begin to realize that the enemy may be much closer to home than anyone could have ever imagined.

    Genre: Action/Drama/Suspense
    Rating: PG/M

    This story is long. Chapter 1 alone is just over 10k words, and each following chapter will be about the same length, so if you would like to read it, here're the links:

    That'd be awesome, when you get the time!

    Sorry it's not anything BW (since I know you are a fan of the series), but Soundwave will be starring in future chapters.

    You've nothing to apologise for dude - Whilst I love BW it's certainly not my be-all & end-all; G1, Animated, Prime & to a lesser extent BM and the Unicron Trilogy, they're all fine by me.

    Very glad to hear that Soundwave will be making an appearance too!

    Default Chapter 2

    Chapter 2 to this story is finally up, after more than three years () of being away from writing fan fiction. Well, now I'm back, and better than ever.

    Here's a small extract from Chapter 2. If you like it and want to read the fic from the beginning, please follow the link in the first post or in my signature. Your thoughts and comments are appreciated, but please do not post any spoilers here! Thank you.

    ...

    Dirge led the way out of the control room and back into the tunnel. "Ah, frag."

    "What's the matter?" Thrust asked behind him, but as he stepped out into the hall with the others, his question was answered. He and his team mates became suddenly aware that they were completely surrounded by Base security. Several laser weapons were pointed directly at them.

    "Disarm your weapons, and stay where you are," the leader of the Base security team commanded them.

    The four jets looked to Dirge for guidance. For a moment it appeared as though he would surrender, but as he slowly began to retract his blaster, stealing a glance at his team mates behind him, he lunged forward and slammed against the leading security mech with the full force of his body weight. "Disarm this!" His anger had been roused, and his optics had changed color to a darker yellow. The security mech gave way easily, struggling against the weight of his opponent as they both impacted the ground.

    Dirge's brash move was just the cue that Ramjet needed, and before the other security mechs had time to react he was crashing through three of them at once, throwing them off their feet and driving them backwards into the bulkhead wall, head-first. At the same time his other team mates opened fire, and soon the tunnel was a frenzy of laser blasts, scorched by power surges as searing plasma came into contact with electrical conduit.
