Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 11 (Read or Download at AO3)
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: 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. ;)

Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 10 (Read or Download at AO3)
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: Another ridiculously long chapter! But I think you will like where it ends up. ;) I am aiming to update with a new chapter once every two weeks on either "A Wing and a Prayer" or "Fire and Ice" so look forward to more soon!

Title: The Alternative Solution (Ghosts of Cybertron extra scene)
Rating: Er... PG-13ish for impending porn?
Pairing: Starscream/Silverbolt/Skyfire

Summary: Silverbolt and Starscream have reached a compromise. Skyfire is caught in the middle. Literally. Extra scene from part 3.

Notes: Only a short silly thing, but I'd always meant to repost it along with the rest of 'Ghosts of Cybertron'.

Skyfire might be in trouble. )

So something like two years ago when I was getting into TF fandom, I started wondering why no-one seemed to have done the (to me) really obvious G1 AU - Starscream crashes in the ice instead of Skyfire. And being a mad AU fiend I plotted it half out and then... I don't know, got distracted by something shiny, or something.

Then a while back I offered fic on the Help Haiti auction and was won by [livejournal.com profile] katharos_8 who, as it turns out, has about as much of a thing for Great Big AUs as I do. So I gave her the choice of a bunch of things I had sitting on my hard drive, and this was the one she picked.

[livejournal.com profile] katharos_8, I am sorry this took so long to get up (and it's only the first 'episode' at that...) but I hope it's worth the wait. :)

Title: Fire and Ice (1/8)
Rating: General for now
Pairings: Megatron/Starscream, Thundercracker/Skywarp, Skyfire/Silverbolt, Skyfire/Starscream

Summary: Ten million years ago, with Cybertron drifting inexorably towards war, Skyfire lost his partner on a distant world. A lot can change in ten million years - but Starscream's not about to sit back and take it without a fight. And who the frag is this Megatron, anyway?

Notes: First of eight 'episodes' that will form a series arc. I will also say now that Skyfire/Starscream is not the primary pairing here... and that this is not a Starscream Joins The Autobots fic. :)


Episode 1: Rude Awakening )

And now if I can finish that last scene of Wing 6...

Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 4 (Read or Download at AO3)
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: ... please don't let's even calculate the exact amount of time it has taken me to write this chapter. -_- I am hoping to get back into more regular updates, so, uh... COMMENTZ PLZ.

And if I haven't mentioned it yet - you should all go and listen to "Edge of Seventeen" RIGHT NOW because it is my Skyfire/Silverbolt + Aerialbots theme and I would make it into a music vid if I had the footage. But since I don't, I've been stealing the lyrics for cut tags.

Title: Ghosts of Cybertron
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] raisedbymoogles and [livejournal.com profile] childofatlantis
Rating: PG-13
Summary: What with exorcisms, possession, and the occasional kidnapping, it's a wonder Rodimus Prime gets any work done. Especially with a ghostly Starscream making trouble around the base. But when the stirring of Cybertron's restless dead isn't limited to sarcastic ex-Seekers... Who you gonna call?

G1. Contains an assortment of pairings, general bot-sluttery, crack, humour, and Decepticon/Autobot... 'alliances'. And Starscream. Lots and lots of Starscream.

Notes:
Atalan: She started it, so it's all her fault. Except for the Skyfire/Silverbolt, I'll have to take the blame for that. Written entirely as a round-robin in comments on [livejournal.com profile] raisedbymoogles's journal, containing every ship we could conceivably cram in there, and proving once more that Starscream is the Cybertronian bicycle, we proudly present 20,000 words of utter crack.
A quick note on relevant canon: we have basically ignored the end of season 3 and the events of the Hate Plague, so this can be considered AU.

Moogle: All my fault? Atalan wrote the majority of this monster, I just egged her on. ...Shamelessly, but. Look, it's twenty thousand words of crack pairings and Starscream being an utter slut machine, I dare any of you to resist that. You can't, can you? I didn't think so.

Warnings: ... love at first sight? And some mecha kissing/touching.
Pairings: various, all slash

Summary: Sometimes you just know. Five (and a half) stories of love at first sight.

Notes: ... this was supposed to be a set of drabbles but, uh, it got away from me. Like, really got away from me. This is mostly because my definition of 'love at first sight' doesn't necessarily involve sight, and doesn't negate the need for establishing common ground between characters. :) With huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] saltedpin for feedback!


5. first sight

This is, perhaps, the Decepticons' first real battle, and Megatron relishes it. )
