Culture Shock ch 4When the young femme woke up next there was another face occupying her vision. White faced with red optics and tri-crested helm, it was none other than the strangers' medic. Knockout if she had managed to learn their names correctly. She glowered at him, was it going to be like this every time she woke up in this place? "Get out my face or I'll make sure the next scratch won't buff out." She stated tersely at the doctor. She might not have been able to understand what he was saying, but his body language screamed "vain".Culture Shock ch 4 by trigirl48
The bigger mech stood up straight and sneered back at her. "I didn't understand a single word of that but I suggest you watch what you say next time." A threat was a threat no matter the language it was in. He turned to his lanky partner still working at the computer. "Soundwave, it didn't work. She's still talking in…" He groped around for a word. "Alien…"
Their guest couldn't see but she could hear him, in a way. Soundwave spouted off a series of sound
SnowboundI'm dreaming of a white ChristmasSnowbound by kenyastarflight
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleighbells in the snow...
If he'd had the capability to do so while still in vehicle mode, Wheeljack would have ripped out his car stereo and forcibly ejected it from his interior the moment Bing Crosby started crooning that tune. What was all the fuss over a white Christmas anyhow? He failed to see how something as capricious as the weather should have any impact on the holiday anyhow -- in the years he'd been on Earth he'd witnessed Christmases of white, green, and even gray varieties and honestly found little difference between them. If the humans were so fussed over their white Christmas anyhow, they could keep it to themselves for all he cared.
Normally such a cynical attitude was more in Gears' or Sunstreaker's line of thinking than his... but then, normally he wasn't out slip-sliding his way through the worst blizzard
Which are your favorite fandoms to read?
I like to read what I'm currently interested in. Trigun, Transformers, Borderlands(mostly after BL 2), Moonlight(omg such a great show) andRuroni Kenshin are just a few of what I've read.
Where do you go to find fanfiction?
Originally it was just fanfiction.net but after finding Deviantart I read fan fiction here too.
What do you look for when choosing fics to read?
My main attention grabber is plot, if it's a good plot then I'm willing to for give a few typos. You could be grammar master supreme and I still won't read your story if the plot is blah.
How picky are you in what you choose to read?
Not very actually. Good plot, preferably good spelling and grammar but that's just for the ease of reading.
What are your favorite genres to read?
Just about anything, even smut if it's done reasonably well.
Which genres/tropes do you avoid?
Heavily "yaoi" or "yuri" oriented stories if the characters aren't gay, mpreg because they're robots they cannot work that way.
Do prefer to read long chapter stories or one shots?
Again depends on the plot. I've read one shots that are better than some full chapters. I usually end up reading chapters though because one shots are well... short...
How much fanfiction do you read on average?
I used to read it all the time back in highschool ('03-'07) but I seemed to have moved on a little bit and only occasionally read it now.
Any favorite/least favorite tropes you constantly see in your fandoms?
Mpreg and unnecessary gayness (making characters who aren't gay, gay or bi). I'm not against gay or bi it's just that when a character in cannon is straight becomes suddenly gay that... that makes me mad.
Any turn offs that might- or have- caused you to stop reading a fic?
Bad or boring plot, bad grammar or spelling to the point the story is unreadable and the above mentioned.
What caused you to start writing fanfiction?
I've been writing since I could read so it was only inevitable that I turn to fanfiction. XD
How long have you been writing fanfiction?
Middle school? I don't remember the exact year or grade.
Which fandoms have you written for in the past 5 years?
Transformers and...uh... maybe some Dr. Who?
What's the first fandom you ever wrote for?
I can't remember, it was either Ruroni Kenshin or a giant horrendous crossover of Yu-gi-oh, Dragon Ball Z, Inuyasha and other things
What are your favorite genres to write?
Action? I don't have a specific genre, whatever I'm inspired for is the genre I choose.
How much time do you spend writing fanfics?
Haven't written as many fics since I left highschool so almost none. |D
Do you prefer to write one shots or chapter fics?
It is what it is.
What story aspects do you find to be difficult to write?
Fight scenes, mechanical biology, keeping characters cannon x_x
What is the easiest thing to write?
Is there a fandom you haven't written for but want to?
What do you consider your greatest strength as a writer?
I've been told it's my imagination.
Creating Titles, and fight scenes, mechanical biology, keeping characters cannon
As a fanfic writer, how important is canon or keeping in character to you?
AUs: love them or hate them? Why?
When done right they can be awesome.
For my own curiosity-
Have you read any of my fanfics?
I've started to but... distractions... >>;
If yes, how did you first find them?
Stumbled across art on DA and went through the gallery.
