FIC ARCHIVE

This post is to archive all of the stuff I write that's worth linking in one place!

Stories are separated into fandom (for fanfiction) or universe (for original fiction), and include links to where the actual piece can be read, as well as some pertinent information. Almost all fics have expanded warnings or notes on the actual page. Unless noted otherwise, links go to the Dreamwidth post containing the story. Stories are categorized roughly in chronological order of writing, though the pre-DW stuff is shaky. Incomplete works from pre-DW weren't included.

If the archive is not up to date, tags can be used to locate more recent postings! If you're looking for meta or world-building posts, they can be found through the tags as well. Feel free to drop a comment if you're looking for something and can't find it!

Title: Mercenary Medicine
Fandom: Transformers: Prime
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Knock Out is a freelance medic-- he works alone and he likes it that way. But when he finds a corpse that isn't as dead as it ought to be at the bottom of a pile of bodies, it puts his entire careful operation at risk.

Notes: Set way before what we see in the show and nowhere near Earth. Contains copious amounts of worldbuilding and headcanon. Thank you to Dirge for letting me bounce ideas off her and helping keep my Breakdown in line, and to Theo for making me really think about what it was I was writing. Mercenary Medicine wouldn’t be the story it is today without either of you.



Minor content warning this chapter for mentions of suicide, physical harm, and dismemberment.

Sorry for the long, long hiatus on this fic, folks. Real life got very much in my way, I'm afraid, but I never intended to give up on MM for good. There may be further delays in getting the rest of the chapters out, but I know what the endgame on this fic is going to be and I fully intend to deliver it to you. Thanks for your patience and for sticking with me for so long!

Rating: PG-13 for robot fighting and discussion of the atrocities of a brutal war
Summary: Breakdown gets creative when it comes to teaching troopers how to fight.
Notes: Set during season one, somewhere between "Out of his Head" and "Operation: Breakdown". Inspired by this post on Tumblr, which was itself inspired by a conversation I had with Dirgles while watching "Plus One".

So this November, I was incredibly lucky to be selected as one of the winners of Cally Karishokka's puggle commission lottery. I was super excited to be able to bring more Puggleformers into my life, especially since they could be whoever I wanted!!

But even more excited than me was Sunstorm, the Puggleformer hatchling I brought home from Botcon. She's* spent the past few days trekking all over the house, visiting our other Puggleformers and making sure everyone knew exactly what she was so pleased about.

Well, yesterday I came home from some errands to find that she'd made it out to the mailbox before me, and dragged this little prize inside.


More pictures inside! )

All Puggleformers are made by the Puggle Goddess herself, of course~. Her stuff is awesome and we're really lucky to have so many in the house. Thank you, Cally, I love Blackout and Scorponok so much, they're perfect!

As you may or may not know, this year I attended my very first Botcon with my roommate Saeru and my girlfriend Dirge! We sold a lot of painstakingly handcrafted merchandise, saw some cool things, met and hung out with some awesome people-- and last but not least, indulged our collective inner Dirges and BOUGHT STUFF.

And hands-down the most precious of all the things we brought home from the con with us was a clutch of Puggleformers!

While the rest of our acquisitions were carefully packed away in the back of Sae's van for transport, the Puggleformers refused to be shut away from the adventure of going home. So they all piled into the front seat with me-- or should I say, on me?-- for the trip back to STL.

You are my Breakdown, Dirge; I wouldn't be able to do this without you!


Knock Out was elbow deep in a disorganized container of weapons when Vitalis warned him that Blackout was coming back online. )

I'm sorry for the delay between the last chapter and this one, and the delay to come between this and the next. I've been quite busy recently preparing convention stock, which eats severely into my writing time. Hopefully after Botcon I'll be able to make time again in my days for writing.

Speaking of, I'M GOING TO BOTCON! And if you're there too, feel free to look for me in the Dealer's Room-- I'll be behind the booth with the costume wings and the jewelry and the pillows and the Seeker t-shirts and other awesome handmade TF things.

Mention "Mercenary Medicine" and get a free pin as a thank you for reading!!

Okay, so it goes without saying that I was really disappointed with the Transformers Prime episode “Orion Pax, Part 3” this past Saturday. I was a bit vocal about it over on Tumblr—thank you to everyone who responded in kind, BTW, it’s good to know I’m not alone! What I have not been very vocal about, at least not anywhere but Plurk and in private conversations, is my overall disappointment with this entire story arc. I enjoyed each successive episode in the S2 premiere less than the ones that came before it, and the conclusion of Part 3 just left me feeling deflated and sad.

I’ve already seen people calling for, speculating on, and planning AU fix-it fics, which is a great way to deal with disappointment in the way a favorite show handles something! But, to be completely honest, I’m not interested enough in Optimus Prime as a character or Optimus/Orion and Megatron as a duo to devote mental time and energy to writing fic about them, even if it’s a story I want to see told. (I barely have enough mental juice to handle “Mercenary Medicine” right now, and Knock Out is basically my spirit animal, so that should tell you how hard it’s been for me to find the time and/or motivation to write lately.)

So here’s what I’m going to do instead: I’m going to talk about what I expected out of this story arc and how the events presented at the end of last season made me feel these expectations were reasonable. I’m going to break down the premiere episode by episode, scene by scene, and talk about what I thought worked and what wasn’t successful—what I liked and what I didn’t, and why—and a little bit about what I would have done differently had I been in charge of crafting this particular Transformers story.

Ever since I wrote that meta-essay on gender and female-ness in Transformers, the concept of model-types has been preying on my mind. If femme is only one model type out of thirteen, what are the other twelve? What sociocultural significance, if any, do they have? Physiologically speaking, what even is a model-type?

Despite having many, many better things to be thinking about and doing, I found myself absorbed by the problem. It was certainly a challenging one. After all, there is already a “canonical” system of model types in place for Transformers: Prime. The show has already introduced a version of the original Thirteen Primes as created by Primus to help battle the Fallen, and word of god would have us believe that extant Cybertronian model types are derived from the Thirteen. At first I thought my task would be as easy as examining the in-show art depicting the Thirteen, determining their model types, and naming them.

It wasn’t that easy.

Almost none of the scant few in-show images of the Thirteen show all thirteen of the Primes at once, and none of them offer a particularly good look. Researching the Thirteen further as they’ve been presented in other canons revealed a lot of Primes that I wasn’t interested in using as prototypical model types, mostly because it would conflict with things I’d already established (or planned to establish) as part of my fanon in “Mercenary Medicine”. (The best example of this is the gestalt Prime, Nexus. Gestalts are a result of Decepticon technological innovation during the course of the war in my fanon, and so using Nexus Prime as a prototype for a model was out of the question.)

In the end, I set aside the Thirteen and concentrated instead on developing a system based on the designs of characters in the show. I separated the characters out roughly by size and by alt-mode, ending up with eight little clusters corresponding to what I had been thinking of as model type. Using that as my foundation, I went to work putting together a system that satisfied my personal insistence on “biological” soundness while still remaining recognizably rooted in what we’ve seen over and over again in canon.

It’s taken a lot of effort—and a lot of input from other people—but I think I’ve finally got something I’m happy with. So without further ado, allow me to present my fanon on the thirteen Primeverse model-types.
