Just popping up to link to what I'm working on at the moment, an anime-style web serial that I've been poking away at for a while. Contains slash, femslash, and a magical girl team that isn't all girls (somewhat to the dismay of the boys involved). Will probably end up with a more permanent home but for now I've posted the first full chapter/episode on my main journal and would appreciate comments. :)

The Maze and the Mirror E01: Sunrise

(You can also read the story that started it off, Circles in the Sands of Time (NOTE: explicit m/m content) although the full length series isn't going to match it exactly, as I've expanded on some ideas and cut others.)

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream...

Notes: So recently I've been getting PMs from people who want to know if this fic is going to follow canon... by which I assume you mean "Oh god/dess/deity-of-choice, am I going to have to be reminded that half the cast dies for no good reason?" The answer is a little complicated. This fic is intended to be canon-compliant with the cartoon - I am not going to alter the events of the movie in any way. HOWEVER - my head-canon has always included some future-fic in which, shall we say, a whole lot of dead people turn out to have trouble staying dead. Because it's not Transformers without Megatron and Starscream smacking each other around, and Prowl wondering what he did to deserve Jazz and the Twins this week, and Ratchet throwing wrenches at people, and Wheeljack spontaneously exploding...

So yes, we're about to hit the MOVIE OF DOOM in the next couple of chapters. But stick with me to the end. I have an epilogue planned and I think you will like it. :)

If from where you're standing you can see the sky above / I'll be waiting for you if you still believe in love )

Notes: Sorry for the late update, guys! I've unfortunately been fairly unwell for the last couple of weeks - the first time I thought I was getting better, I got worse again and had to have antibiotics, and then as soon as I finished those, I got really sick again really quickly. So now I have more antibiotics. Not fun! But I am up to robot romance today, so I'm getting this chapter out while I can. And there is yet more to come, don't worry. :)

Once I knew myself and with knowing came love / I would know love again if I had faith enough... )

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream..

Notes: Hi guys. I decided a while back that I wasn't going to post any more of this until I'd finished the whole thing. I've written about five more chapters, but I've run into a problem (albeit an awesome one for me) - I've started working really hard on my own original fiction in the last few months, and I'm making a serious push towards getting it published next year. So I'm honestly not sure if I will end up finishing "A Wing and a Prayer", much as I love it - I'm out of the fandom enough now that it's really hard to get back into the mindset, especially when I want to be writing about my own world. Therefore I'm going to clean up and post everything I've written so far, so at least you've got as much of the story as exists. It might be that going through and cleaning up is enough to spur me into just a little more enthusiasm so that I finish it off, but I'm making no promises and assuming at this point that I probably won't.

If you like my writing and like what I've done with these characters, you might be interested in my original fiction too. Partly because it's a high-tech fantasy series that features a lot of the kind of adventure/investigation/character-interaction plots I usully write, and partly because I seem to have sort of accidentally ended up with a pair of secondary characters who bear a suspicious similarity to my human versions of Skyfire and Silverbolt... :) If you're interested you can follow me on Twitter as @brightwanderer, or on Dreamwidth, also as [personal profile] brightwanderer. I'm also planning some slashy original short stories (in the style of Shousetsu Bang Bang) if that's your cup of tea. ;)

Notes: Wow. That's certainly got to be some kind of record for gaps in updating. The abridged version of why: about this time last year I had glandular fever (mono) and was very ill for about six weeks. I was lucky enough not to get the fatigue afterwards, but it was such a big break in my life that it threw everything off, including the next chapter of this. Since then I've been up and down with writer's block, real life stuff, and the growing feeling that I'd waited too long and there wasn't any point in updating now. Fortunately, I got past that, helped by a lot of you lovely people who are still reviewing and waiting hopefully for more. This is a long chapter and that's after I split it in two! The next one is mostly written and should be up in a week or so. I've managed to get into the habit of writing daily for the last month, so I am hoping to get chapters up much much quicker - if I can hit one every two weeks, I will. I'm also working on 'Fire and Ice'. Thanks again for all your reviews!

By the way, if you would like to read "A Wing and a Prayer" on an e-reader, you can download all of it so far from the Archive of Our Own in whatever format you prefer. I've tested the Kindle version and it looks pretty good!

Pairing: Skyfire/Silverbolt

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream...

Notes: ... is... is it possible? Are the protagonists finally starting to get a clue?? :O FUN FACT: originally I planned this with a couple of fluff scenes at the start and then for the chapter break to come after, oh... scene 3? And then I realised that at my current rate of updating that would be cruel. So instead we get to finish on Plot. :)

I know I say this every time, but the next one should hopefully be quicker. I am on a writing schedule at the moment that seems to be working out quite well. Being reminded that people want to read is a big help, and thank you to the people who've reviewed recently despite the gap!

ALSO quick question: I have a soundtrack for this fic. It is semi-spoilery in that it follows the plot quite closely. Would people be interested if I posted it nonetheless? For one thing it will explain where I'm getting the cut tag quotes from...
