FIC: Dipolemacy, Chapter 1

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Jumping back on the chapter-fic horse with this - serious attempt at a ridiculous premise. XD I've been working on it for a while, so let's see how this goes.

With Cybertron recovering from its long and destructive war, Rodimus Prime journeys to the Seeker-controlled city of New Vos in order to reclaim a part of himself long forgotten. But a dark secret and a fight over New Vos's future threatens to destroy everything Rodimus has worked so hard to build, and will push his skills both old and new to the limit. Politics is a dance, and in New Vos, dance can be deadly.

It didn't take long for the newly-minted Rodimus Prime to develop the instincts common to most officers, aided by having so recently being only a lowest-rank soldier... (Link to AO3)

You know the scene in FF7 on the gondola? It's kind of like that. Takes place a little after The Return of Optimus Prime.

On AO3

...heh, maybe being in Englandia is good for my creativity. ^_^

Moogle Rewatches TF:TM!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
That's the 1986 version, the original and still the best. ;) I livetweeted the whole thing; you can read the collected tweets right here. :D

I have so many feels about this movie, you guys. SO MANY. I may have to do a Why I Love Hot Rod post sometime. XD Also my appreciation for a very, very pretty Galvatron has been reestablished. >3

Another ficblurt, this one deemed okay enough to go on AO3.

In which Magnus makes an odd discovery.

I'm doing a 30-day OTP challenge over on my tumblr. Every day, a (usually silly) skibble of Roddy and Galvatron. I'm 4 days in! Can I keep this up? Let's find out! :D

Otherwise known as "I have a chibi Roddy plushie and a camera and now everyone at Giant's thinks I'm a freak."



Once upon a time, a Roddy and his moogle went grocery shopping... )

Notes for a fic.

....that popped into my head around bedtime and wouldn't let me sleep 'til I wrote them out, thanks ever so much brain.

Anyway, here are my thoughts on femmes. )

I was a busy moogle today!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I went to Big Gigantic Has-Everything-Ever (Including All The People) Grocery Store today, and while I was there I stopped by Ulta to prepare for my latest geeky endeavor. Behold!

Geek nails! )

I also made limeade! Pics. It happened. )

So that was my day off. I'm spent. *flop* How's your day been?

...I was right. This thing is addictive.

Silly skibble tumblr.

With, uh, bonus Roddy embarrassment. ;)

Doodlin' moogle.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, I took the tumblr plunge, inspired by Memos from Fury. Memos from Roddy is not quite as good, but I'm working on it.

Contemplating making another tumblr for my occasional skibbles. I'm pretty sure this is how crazy cat ladies get started. I'm going to wind up with forty of the damn things and my room will never be clean again. #pixelstainedtechnopeasant (...but it might be simpler than my old trusty Photobucket. XD)

Anyway: A couple of silly G1 things. )

Disjointed and whiny.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So MovieBob (this guy) just did his review of Battleship, and he tore it a new asshole. I felt... gratified. Does that make me a horrible person?

Let's back up. Remember Real Steel? Based on Rock'em Sock'em Robots, starred Hugh Jackman, I think? (Too lazy to look it up.) I... kind of cringed when I saw the trailers to that.* It didn't look like a bad movie - far from it. It looked good. It looked like it had heart, and that just killed me. How in the world could Rock'em Sock'em Robots, a property with no story behind "punch the other guy until someone's head flies off", get a decent movie and Transformers, with its wide character pool, rich mythos, and devoted fanbase, got... Bayverse?

I could seriously leap headfirst off a bridge, you guys.

Okay, look, Bayverse had moments I liked. There were even a few I loved. Mr. Cullen did an amazing job, Mikaela tended toward Badass in movie 1, etc. etc. it could have been AWESOME. And God knows we're getting some fantastic fanfic out of it. *waves at (lj)merfilly and (lj)chibirisuchan among others* But... in the end... yeah. Y'all know how that ended up.

For a while I thought that maybe part of the reason Bayformers failed was BECAUSE of its long history (anyone taking bets on when the first grand-sparkling will be born?), rich and varied continuity to draw from (which, let's face it, is a giant mess, and every attempt to 'Unify Canon' will inevitably result in this), and devoted fan base (read 'vocally obnoxious fan base with an entitlement complex'). Nobody with the intelligence of a waffle would want to touch this property, so we wound up with "T&A&Explosions" Bay, I thought. ...But then Joss Whedon directed Avengers, a property with comparable history, continuity wackiness, and fanbase. And it was very nearly a religious experience. So much for that theory.

So that's why I was relieved to hear that the other big budget movie based on a board game wasn't that great. (Although the newspaper gave it a decent review. FFFFF.)

JOSS. YOU MUST GET YOUR HANDS ON THE RIGHTS TO TRANSFORMERS AND REBOOT THAT SHIT. POKE HASBRO WITH LOKI'S POKEY STICK OF OBEY-ME AND GET IT DONE. ONLY YOU CAN SAVE US.

*I also kind of cringed because creating robots to entertain them in gladitorial combat was what the Quintessons did, before The Revolution came. So yeah, that's kind of a squick for this TF-S3 fangirl.

I vidded again. G1 this time. The clips are all different sizes and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. I need one of those 'For Dummies' books.

So, yes. You may blame Triad for this.

My contribution to Porn Battle XIII, and official hiatus warning.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Untitled, Magnus/Hot Rod, bondage and related funtiems. In my mind it's set post-S3, but you could read it as pre-Movie if you wanted.

Crowley and Aziraphale Find the Clitoris, Crowley/Az, genderswap. Rather silly.

Both links go to DW.

And with that, lovelies, I'm off to England for a week to see my [info]deepbluesquee, and internet access will be sporadic at best. Don't expect to hear from me until Saturday the 18th at the earliest.

Aftermath of NaNoFail.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I think I know what went wrong with my Bayverse rewrite. I was just pretty much following the plot of the movie, and at a certain point, I was all, "Why am I doing this? This story has already been told." And any and all motivation went out the window.

So Imma work on other stuff for a while, and then I'm going to come back and see if I can't come up with a story that Wants To Be Told.

EDIT: Also because, y'know, I really suck hard core at writing that much per day.
