    what has happened to Obsidian, is he going to get tried or is he held indefinitely?
    what of Cybertronians returning from off world to find their home planet changed, and did they or did they not receive Megatron's transmission? What of Scavenger? he seemed to join the vehicons because he did not want the new body

    I'm interested in finding out if the relationship between Cheetor and the Oracle is really and truly severed, or is there something more to it. My gut says there is more, tho its more on Cheetor's side than the Oracle's.

    And even tho I never really liked Botanica, I think the twist of her inability to adapt back to a regular body is pretty interesting and I'd like to see where you take it, Shane.

    And hey, you've tried that whole 'ending' thing before...never seems to work out! :lol

    I'd just like to put some closure to all my various storylines that I've developed. And when I'm done, if I'm still interested in webcomics, maybe take on a different set of characters. Or if I'm not, at least the story's finished and I don't leave everyone hanging.

    Strika's whereabouts will be dealt with. I don't know that different things are in the works, but I might enjoy taking on a different set of characters at some point.

    The first is a definite, the second I hadn't thought of, so thanks, and the third is a maybe... I know you've asked about them from time to time, and there's probably a good story there somewhere, but up to this point I've had enough villains to juggle without adding the Predacon leaders. If a good idea strikes me, I'll include them, but I'll just have to see.

    Obsidian will, of course, play a role, as will Scavenger, last seen (or rather heard) talking to Live Wire. I kept meaning to bring in someone who'd been offworld to get their reaction, so it may happen.

    Ok, some of these I'd already planned to take into account, but here's the list so far:
    - Waspinator's fate/is he still Thrust?
    - Blackarachnia's whereabouts
    - what happened to Strika
    - Vehicons/Live Wire accessing the Oracle
    - Blastcharge feeling guilt?
    - Tripredicus Council - what have they been up to?
    - Obsidian's fate
    - Transformers from off-planet/reactions?
    - Scavenger's whereabouts

    No, it doesn't. :) 

    I'll have to see how it works this time.

    Well, given you've tied it in nicely to the Sunbow continuity...

    Whatever became of Galvatron's vow to rule the universe? Did he come back at some point in the past, or has he still been lost in space?

    And with the Tripredacus Council, I'm not expecting much. Hey - we don't even need to see them. I just find it incredibly unlikely that they would be inactive on Cybertron for so long... you've had nothing but Maximals running the show. The whole "new beginning" of Cybertron would be an EASY excuse to demand more political power, like say some Predacon members of government (all carefully handpicked by the Council, of course...)

    Or, you could kill 2 birds with one stone and make THEM returning offworlders to get a reaction... after all, going off The Agenda Part 1 their sattelite is a far enough distance from Cybertron such that they were able to deflect the Transwarp wavefront.

    Maybe that side of events is something that someone else could detail if they wanted to. I can't help but think that adding them into the story at this point might be a plot element too much. But I do have the possibility in mind as I write, so if an opportunity arises where they'd be useful, I'll use it.

    It is taking some time to get this off the ground, mainly because I'm trying to actually get the whole story nailed down before I shoot and post it. In the past I've ended up rewriting and deviating from my outlines as I made the comics. Since I'm trying to wrap so much up, I'd rather avoid improvisation this time around.

    The first few scenes are pretty much set in stone though, so there may be an update this week or next.

    Don't lock yourself in too much.

    Still, I eagerly await a story.

    See, I'm not paying attention--totally missed that teaser.

    Well, so far we're seeing that Blackarachnia hasn't changed. So it's a greater matter of what's happened to her period.

    Take all the time you need. Can't rush good ideas. :)

    You're lucky that this thread is stickied. :D 

    So, hmm, what else...what about Spy Streak? Um, how about Cheetor's struggle inside with the Oracle?

    So Blackarachnia ISN'T reformatted. That's a nice twist.

    So Blackarachnia is still her technoorganic self. And thus starts the beginning of the end.

    Just gotta say shane, I got myself an Obsidian figure due to your characterisation of him. You did so much with that figure to give him personality and you've got to be applauded for it.
