    Please go here to read the first Chapter of my new fan fic:

    Transformers: Heroes on FanFiction.net or Lexicon

    Each chapter is (will be) fairly long (about 10k words) so if you would like to and have some time to read it, that would be much appreciated. It's an ongoing novel, so the first Chapter basically introduces the main theme.

    Story Notes:

    Although this story takes a lot of things from the G1 cartoon, it is by no means strictly G1 toon oriented and introduces characters and/or ideas from other continuities (Sentinel Prime, Jhiaxus, Thunderblast and Rook are examples). Set primarily on Cybertron and Alternity City, it also deviates from certain key elements common in Transformers canon. For one thing, the general consensus that all Autobots are good and all Decepticons are bad is challenged, and a new meaning to the motivations behind their conflict is offered (which is a recurring theme in my Heroic Decepticons Alternate Universes). Some personalities have been altered from their original profiles as a necessity and their characters developed to a much deeper level than the original cartoon allowed (Megatron being the most obvious example).

    Story intro:

    A century ago, the eons-old war between the Autobots and the Decepticons suddenly and inexplicably came to an end. Since then, many have gone their separate ways, whilst others still hold onto the bitter memories of war. Now, as Autobots and Neutrals join forces in a new directive to capture every Decepticon still left alive, it appears that the Autobots will finally get their chance to even the score, and defeat their enemies once and for all. But when they become the target of seemingly random, yet terrifying attacks, some begin to realize that the enemy may be much closer to home than anyone could have ever imagined.

    After a long hiatus I have decided to return to TFW and start sharing my fan fiction again with you all. I picked up this story again last year after taking a long break from writing. It's updated at the rate of one chapter every one to two months, and it is still ongoing.

    Please make sure that you read the chapters in the right sequence, to avoid spoilers!

    Here's a summary of each chapter so far with links to FF.net, but you can also view it at Lexicon (see link in first post):

    Chapter 1: In this introductory chapter, the stage is set and some major players are introduced, as well as some important locations. Elita One is fed up with her current mission and returns to Cybertron. Megatron boldly confronts Optimus Prime about the Autobot-Neutral Alliance, but the latter is determined to abide by High Council directives. Sideswipe and Arcee unexpectedly cross paths, while Red Alert asks Ratchet some difficult questions regarding events surrounding the Dark Plague. Optimus does some soul searching and reassesses current events before making an unusual request of one of his most trusted officers.

    Chapter 2: On Alternity City, five Decepticon jets infiltrate the Subterranean Base to deliver a message, and avoid capture thanks to unexpected help. On Cybertron, Optimus informs his team of the High Council's new directive, while Elita requests a new mission. Jazz begins his investigation, while Ratchet surprises Red Alert with a promotion. The mini-bots are introduced, and a fun night out helps bring out some resentments.

    Chapter 3: In a bold move, Elita One takes matters into her own hands and defies authority. Prowl discovers the horrific assault of an Autobot, which leads to an arrest, and a friendly femme returns to Iacon Central.

    Chapter 4: An Autobot femme finds her calling, whilst the life of an Autobot is left in Red Alert's care. Jazz interrogates a prisoner and begins to suspect his innocence, but when the High Council interferes with an expedited conviction, he takes extreme action in a desperate attempt to save the prisoner's life. Meanwhile on Alternity City, Jhiaxus' assistant is forced to leave the Base against his will, and Elita One is faced with a crisis.

    Chapter 5: Jazz pulls off an incredible feat with some unlikely help. Rook is forced to confront some long buried truths, and must make a decision that will change his life forever.

    Chapter 6: Ratchet is tormented by past memories and the loss of his best friend, while Jazz must face the consequences of his actions. Optimus Prime leads a new mission to secure Darkmount. Elita and her crew set up a temporary base, and Thunderblast meets up with a troubled seeker.

    Chapter 7: On Alternity City, a bounty hunter corners his prey, whilst an unlikely ally helps Elita and her best friend acquire some much needed energy. Thunderblast has a run in with a mysterious mech and his companion. On Cybertron, the team of Autobots led by Optimus Prime find themselves in a most unexpected situation, while an estranged Autobot warrior discovers some disturbing truths about the Alliance.

    Chapter 8: A certain Autobot is hanging on to life by a thread. Sideswipe returns to Iacon Central only to be met with resistance, but is given a message which will change the course of his life. Optimus must make a difficult decision. An old enemy shows up in Binaltech, but the resulting skirmish helps resolve a matter of trust.

    Chapter 9:
    The strange experiences of two Autobots provides further clues to the Alliance's secret past, in a race against time to stop the imminent Neutral takeover, as Optimus Prime begins to question some long-held beliefs. On Alternity City, the misfortune of another Autobot may help bring about the beginnings of reconciliation between Cybertron's two warring factions.

    ~
    Chapter 10 is currently in the works.

    I hope you enjoy and thanks for reading! Feel free to post any comments or questions but please avoid any spoilers, thank you.

    Chapter 10:
    Optimus Prime confides in his former mentor about his doubts, while Sideswipe demands some answers in a confrontation with the leader of the Neutrals. Ratchet's cryptic vision leads him to make an unexpected discovery. Jazz ventures into Decepticon territory, but his mission is jeopardized when a vengeful Streetwise interferes. On Alternity City, an Autobot and a Decepticon exchange truths as an unlikely friendship begins to develop, while Thunderblast is up to her usual tricks again.

    Transformers: Heroes on FanFiction.net. You can select Chapter 10 (or the required chapter) from the drop down menu at top right.

    This story has passed the 100K words mark. :eek:  There's probably still another 100K to go, however, before the first part of the extended story arc is completed.

    Chapter 11: A critical discovery could save Groove’s life, but it doesn’t come without a price as the rift between Jazz and the Autobots widens. Sideswipe must confront the consequences of his recent actions, while Ratchet reveals some startling evidence that could change recorded history. On Alternity City, a lone Autobot learns more about his unlikely ally, as the femmes indulge in a taste of city life.

    Chapter 12: In this chapter, the Autobots celebrate an important victory, and Jazz learns of the Decepticons' plan to save their fallen comrades. Does Sentinel Prime come a little closer to achieving his goal? Meanwhile on Alternity City, a flirtatious femme experiences a rude awakening, while Elita One and her crew run across some bad luck.

    Please note that it may take a few more days before Chapter 12 is available on Lexicon.

    Chapter 14: Two separate revelations unlock past secrets, but many questions are still left unanswered. A successful mission into Quadrant Epsilon leads to a reunion, as well as a surprise rescue. Thunderblast’s past decisions catch up with her, causing her to re-evaluate her life. For Elita’s crew, an unexpected assailant causes Chromia to make a critical decision based on trust.

    If you have a little time to spare, I invite you all to read the first 14 chapters of Transformers: Heroes on FanFiction.net. You can follow the story to get notification updates for each new chapter, and also leave a review (you can leave a guest review without signing up for an account).
