    Forget Me Not

    My first forray into the Armada-Energon-Cybertron universe, or my variation thereof. I've used G1 names where I think they'll be more fitting but that aside, this is set in a modern style continuity. And for once, I've used real-life toy models for all the characters involved, though some have been *ahem* ammended. A cast list will be added later for those who want it.

    So sit back and relax as we take a jorney back into prehistory and bring you:

    Part 1: Wrecks

    Read all four sides and I must say, definitely an interesting read. Love how you put a twist on a series. Excellent writing as well. Flowed very nicely. :thumb

    Burnt Bridges

    [As of Kickback's edict (;) ), all parts of the Tales of Cybertron 'saga' will be placed in here, with individual post titles denoting which arc the relevant story takes place within.]


    Forget Me Not was just the start. The story continues in our very near future...the Autobot's world is about to be turned on its head. Myths will be shattered. Allies from beyond time will come to their side. Enemies old and new will rise. Heros will be reborn.

    And other such prophetcial mumbo jumbo. It's fun being the all powerful writer, isn't it? :D 

    Ah, you'll see soon enough...

    Hmm...

    *Tumbleweed passes by*

    I take a heck of a long time to update this thing, don't I?

    Ah well, to anyone who's following this story (is there anyone?!), I hope it's worth it!

    Lost Treasure arrives:

    Side 1

    Side 2


    Next: Our favourite heros and villians go feral...

    Right, here we go again. I tried something different with this one so I apologise if it's hard(er) to read than the rest.

    The action moves to Animatros - thus allowing me to address my dislike of all those airy fairy 'honorable' types that the latest generation of beastial TFs seems to be made up of. I basically wanted to write about transfomers who'd forgotten they were transformers.

    Ah, I'm sure you'll get the picture when you start reading:

    Feral:

    Side 1

    Side 2


    And, heavens above, almost no perfectly spoken sarcastic smart alecs in this one!

    Burnt Bridges

    And at last, here it is!

    Whew.

    *Dusts*

    Isn't it a real pain when you can't write as fast as you want to? This being particularly ironic given that this month's theme is speed.

    You know the drill by now: there's a Key on a planet and our brave mechs have to get it, all the while facing down neferious Decepticons, the unsavory locals, twists, mysterious interlopers and laboured expositions...

    Thus, just in time for the end of the year, I present Burnt Bridges part 4: The Need for Speed...!

    Side 1

    Side 2

    Enjoy!

    And can someone check this for me: I think I've set up 6 distinct sub-plots in addition to the 'find the mcguffin' main one. If I've got more than that, I'm in serious trouble!

    Finally, a touch of a teaser for what's coming sometime in the New Year:

    The hunt reaches Gigalonia, a planet where things are stranger than anything so far! Expect thrills, spills, power struggles, brave heroes, despicable villians, treachery, surpirses at every turn, really giant robots and a most urbane commentary. Starscream knows what he wants and no one is going to stand in his way. For long...


    :D

    Blazes, this took a long time.

    Thanks! I certainly intend to keep it up!

    And just to prove it: The final part of the Burnt Bridges 'saga'!

    An anticlimax? Perhaps...

    Epilogue


    So...

    Anyone want to know what happens next?

    Other Fronts

    And so it continues! I can promise you thrills, spills and a whole heap of plot threads that will shape this alternate AEC universe from now on.

    Quick precis: There are six keys to Vector Sigma. On the instruction of an ancient Prime, the Autobots have set about gathering them together to reverse a catastrophe that destroyed an older stage of their civilisation. Unfortunately, their bitter enemies have found out about the Keys and the power they hold. The Autobots have secured three: The Matrix, The Planet Cup and The Burning Throne. Decepticons under the command of Starscream have gotten their hands on two: The Great Cog and The Spatial Key. The Temporal Key, the sixth piece in the puzzle, is in the keeping of Vector Prime, High Guardian of Xenothos. The fight is on to gather all of these relics together, for good or ill...

    But what of the troops? What of those who stand behind the great heroes and heroines? What of those who are busy on Other Fronts...?


    Prologue


    Stay tuned to find out!

    The usual thing: one story, two sides, a whole lot of exposition, endless chatter and the occasional bout of unnecessary violence. This time, however, you also get an extra special bonus story, just to keep you up to date with where everyone's going!

    So, sit back and relax, pull up a comfortable chaise longue and enjoy as we bring you: Pirates!
