    Hi guys,

    So I've been involved in online TF fandom in one capacity or another (mostly alt.toys.transformers, before it became something a bit different than I'm used to, as well as the TF: Lost Years MUSH) since late 1994, and it really seems like things have changed in a broad sense. Is that me being weird, or would others be inclined to agree?

    Do any fans do this sort of thing anymore, or am I sort of alone here? I hope not.

    What is it about TF fanfic? I love it, but so much of it has changed in the last few years. Where is the Oakland FTP site located these days? It had a ton of awesome work on it - "Shelter from the Void", "Andraxus", "Assimilation", "Broken Down", "Broken Circut", the "TF Vs. Aliens" stuff and a few other great stories. Has the site moved? Where can I find these stories now? Does anyone read them anymore? Oh, and "Human Urges" is also great, too - is it finished? I've always wondered about that story. Are fanfic and fanzines a big thing in the TF fandom now? I haven't seen much evidence of that being the case, so I'm curious. I dug out a bunch of old fanzines from my closet this morning - "Maelstrom" and "The Survivors" and some old "Con-Quest", too - what's up with all of this?

    Lastly...what's with ATTCM? Is it gone for good? How could one potentially set about reversing that problem?

    Thanks, guys. I would love to reconnect with people who know what I'm talking about - or not - really, just any affirmation that I'm not out to left field on this stuff would be great. I appreciate your help!

    Cheers,

    Joseph

    There's a fanfic forum here on the boards with some pretty cool stories in it. I wrote some fan fics a few years back...not the best pieces of writing ever but it was fun at the time. I do enjoy reading them from time to time.
