I've finally written a few pages of Chapter Two, so I'm going to go ahead and start posting bits and pieces of it. Keep in mind that with Chapter One: The Alpha Conversion, I had it all written out already (except for the part where Starscream kills Alpha Trion; I had to add that in) and was just editing as I posted it. I'm posting this one as I write it, so it may be a little slow going, and maybe a tad less cohesive without the years of proofreads and edits. However, I promise I'll try not to screw it up. I must mention that I had to go back into the Chapter One thread and change something. You may remember Orion Pax thinking that he had heard the word "Prime" a hundred times and seen it seven...I changed the hundred to a thousand. I was never quite happy with the constraints the number one hundred put on the entire story (not just Chapter One, but all Twelve Chapters), and I thought that one thousand year timespans made everything a little more relaxed and realistic. I guess that's sort of a spoiler...:redface . Also, whereas Orion Pax became Optimus Prime in Chapter One, Don't look for a new Prime in Chapter Two. The obvious next step is Rodimus Prime, but he won't come along until Chapter Three: The Beta Conversion. The story generally goes along in that fashion; a Conversion followed by a linking chapter, and then another Conversion.

And as you can see in the section titled "A Book Apart," I use a lot of characters that were originally male as females, such as the pretender Waverider and the Technobot Strafe. That was only cuz I thought the toys looked feminine when I was little so I always used them as girls. Twisting the fabric of the universe, I know. :redface Also, I can't guarantee that I'll finish the ENTIRE story within my lifetime, so if I don't, I apologize in advance. Anyway, story begins on next post.
