Mod note

Given the recent update to Livejournal and that there seem to be changes within that are forcing the majority of the fandom to relocate. I have now created a mirror of this community on dreamwidth.org 

It is live and everything has been copied over. Unfortunately there is not yet an option to cross post directly from the dreamwidth account to livejournal and vice versa as of yet so I will make regular updates to the dreamwidth community to ensure we don't lose anything.

If anyone has any questions or worries please don't hesitate to comment to this post or send me a DM. I'm not leaving Livejournal until I absolutely have to and so there is no problem posting your fics to this community if you're not yet or don't want to join dreamwidth.

For those that do this community has retained the same name so it should be easy to find.

EDIT: Just to alleviate any concerns, no I'm not planning on relocating the community over to Dreamwidth solely. It is still now and for as long as I can keep it a livejournal community. I'm just creating a back up which I'll update regularly for the 'just in case' livejournal boots us off ^_^;; 

I'll also with fic writer's permissions of course cross post to livejournal links to any fics that are just posted to the dreamwidth transficsation community so everyone gets a chance to read and stay involved with fandom.

Hope this eases any concerns over a permanent move. :3

Signal Boost: It's that time of year again (And boy do we need some love right now!)

Originally posted by tf_valentines at It's that time of year again (And boy do we need some love right now!)





It's that time of year again!

Rules are the same as previous years:

1) Choose as many people as you like and write a sentence or two about how you feel about them. It could be as simple as "you always make me smile," or "I love your icons." Just something you would like to tell them. No upper or lower limit on length.

2) Post your list to this entry. You have until midnight on February 13 (SGT) to send them in. (There may be some leeway, depending on how late the post goes up, but try to hurry!) It can be done anonymously or not, no posters will be revealed and comments are screened.

3) On February 14, a list of all the people who received comments and the comments that they received will be posted without revealing who sent them. Hopefully, lots of you will wake up on Valentine's Day to all kinds of anonymous love!

4) The valentines will post to LiveJournal and DreamWidth with links to both Tumblr and Twitter. Please don't send multiple valentines for the same user across platforms. If you've sent one on DW there is no need to also send them one on LJ :)

You can also send valentines to users of other sites, such as Tumblr and Twitter! Just specify who and where. Other sites will be listed at the bottom of both LJ and DW posts, as there is currently now a Tumblr account associated with these https://www.tumblr.com/blog/tfvalentines this is where the valentines post will be posted to on Tumblr. I also accept anonymous valentines as private messages on there that will be added to the valentines post.

2017 hasn't started off well so for the love of Primus,

Spread some love around! <3

Giants of the Earth, Chapter 33 AND 34

These chapters have fewer explosions and more conversations--plus a confrontation or two--as the fallout continues, and plot threads are slowly resolved ...

Title: Giants of the Earth, Chapter 33 and Chapter 34
Author: hopeofdawn and fractalserpent
Rating: PG-13
Verse: Bayverse/movieverse
Characters/Pairing: this chapter--the Giant, Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Sunstreaker, Springer, Soundwave, and many, many other ensemble characters ....

Warnings/Notes:Takes place after DOTM, with minor tweaks to movieverse events/characters (so there are minor spoilers for the third movie). Most of the characterizations will be taken more from G1--especially Optimus, who is *not* the 'kill 'em all, let Primus sort 'em out' character he is in the movies. Most of the onscreen 'deaths' of Decepticons and Autobots have also fallen victim to authorial override--see the fic for details. Mild warnings for threats of violence and hatchling chaos. :D

White Aster was an awesome beta, and was great in pointing out things we missed--as always, all remaining mistakes are our own. :)

That same fallout, still in the atmosphere, meant no human-made technology stood a chance at peering through the murk to follow the battle raging over southern Nevada. All NEST could do was listen to stories told by exhausted, frightened survivors: of how passing ships flipped vehicles over like toys in their wake, endless lines of evacuees along highways ignored in favor of distant Autobot targets. Of driving under shadows that blotted out the sun for thirty miles. Of watching the horizon light up with incandescent, eye-searing flares of light, the sky glowing green and white, their very bones vibrating as the earth below quaked and shook.

A new TF Challenge

Originally posted by silberstreif at A new TF Challenge
Well, the challenge fever is catching and I wondered, why not do a challenge that keeps the word limit down? That is short? I still have many fond memories of tf_speedwriting and my favourite prompt there had been the challenge to do a flash fic - a oneshot limited to exactly 500 words. This kept bugging me, until I gave in and created a new Challenge on AO3:


The Transformers Flash Fic Challenge!

The goal of this challenge is to produce four flash fics of exactly 500 words. All four flash fics should be about the same Transformer character or team (continuity doesn't matter), so that at the end there is kind of a set.

Every week offers 4 prompts. Please choose one prompt per week to write one of the 4 flash fics about and mention which prompt choosen in the notes. You are free to do what you want with the prompts as long as they inspired /something/.

You can start posting from the 1st October onwards. Deadline is the 31th October.

It doesn't matter if you really do one per week or if you upload all four on the 31th October.
Here is the link to the Challenge!

I'm aware that not all LJ have an AO3 account, but the prompts are public so if you want to join the fun, you can.

Negotiation: Chapter 5

A new chapter, in which Maggie decides to apply chemistry to cooking, and finds out more about her new 'owners' ...

Title: Negotiation, Chapter 5
Author: fractalserpent, hopeofdawn
Rating: R/NC-17 (this chapter is PG-13, though)
Verse: Bayverse/movieverse, with some G1 additions
Characters/Pairing: this chapter--Maggie Madsen, Ratbat, Ravage, Steeljaw, Buzzsaw, Patchjob (OC), Erasure (OC), Raindance

Warnings/Notes:This is an AU off of our 'Sound and Fury' verse, in which the Autobot/Decepticon civil war never happened, and Cybertronians have found *ahem* unique new uses for humans. The rape/noncon archive warning is for the overall themes of this story-verse, which is neck deep in consent issues. We'll continue to use this archive warning on every installment due to the nature of the story-verse. Please heed the warnings if this isn't your thing.

“Hey Steely! Oh wow, it really is you!” Sharp black talons closed over the rim of the datapad, obscuring the feed from several of the cameras. “Long time no see! Whatcha been up to? Is your carrier still talking his way into everywhere he shouldn’t be in Kalis?” Another narrow, wedge-shaped helm popped down into the visual field as the datapad tried to focus. “I noticed that Ravage had just booked a transport pod, but I never thought it’d be you! Wait until I tell Rainy--it’s gonna be great to have you here. We can all go out, swap some memories, find ourselves a party or three, just like the old days--”

“Stealing my calls halp,” squeaked Ratbat breathlessly from somewhere under Erasure’s coils.

“Buzzsaw--” Ravage growled. Buzzsaw tilted his helm, scarlet optics flickering in surprise at his cohort-mates’ obvious exasperation.

“Whaaat? Why are you looking at me like that? It’s just Steeljaw. We saw the booking notice go out, so I figured I’d come see who was visiting. And it wasn’t even my idea--Frenzy was just checking up on the suite’s data traffic, so it’s not my fault!”

//What mountain!? Giant, what the frag--//

But the rising energy was subsuming the tacnet now, as well, burning it out, soaking every last bit of bandwidth into that coruscating dome of energy. Each pulse throbbed farther, sweeping in like the tide, washing everything inevitably into the deep.

Megatron and Optimus were almost invisible in the midst of that vortex, reduced to ragged shadows within the light. Between them, two brilliant slivers had pulled themselves free to hang in the air, burning like the heart of a star, too painful to look at directly. Felt more than seen, the twinned shards strobed, pulsing as they neared each other. Sheets of physical light danced through the ash, splitting and merging, one moment fractalline, the next pure disorder. They robed the two mecha at the epicentre like nacre, petals unfolding from the air itself. Strobing flares lanced in a column skyward, shining through every obstacle. Every color was in that light, all the wavelengths, all the amplitudes, and all the endless singing spaces in between.
