To start it off, I really love your shading techniques. As well as the 'rock' wall. Since I'm Asian, the grass and fur stroke and outli...


Holy f**king s**t... I LUV IT XDD The shading on him is very good and I love how you did the glowing energon stripes and glowing visor....


To start things off, I love the coloring of this. Where you put each leather 'band' and where you added the red and brown is perfectly ...


Getting right to the point, I love the lighting. It fits the scene fairly well. The Decepticon logo can't be absolutely perfect but it'...

Espionage and its Outcomes...
I was thinking randomly, so I decided to do something about it. I'm writing some random crap with an OC called Nightblade who is a spy for the Autobots but eventually goes neutral because she doesn't want to hurt the cons any more. So have some fluff!

Entry @&*#&(!
I can't do this any more. The Autobots were wrong...So very wrong...The Decepticons may be a bit violent, but they care so much about each other. This statement was finally confirmed to me during the previous battle. Breakdown had been recently injured badly in the battle, and Knockout didn't recharge for three megacycles (days) until his partner was awake and okay. My mentor in Decepticon behavior, Thunderbolt, defended her teammates with her life, and I watched her grieve for her brother Grimstone. Who I also got to know fairly well. He was a nice mech, and a very skilled in medical, taught personally by Thunderbolt. 'Lord' Megatron even allowed Thunderbolt a couple mega-cycles off of her duties to allow her to

People should write more. Even if they suck.

So, I usually don't make journals regarding random chains of thought, but I decided to make one just out of spite and maybe people might be interested or even agree with me. This journal sort of covers some different topics based on fanfiction, such as tips on writing a good fanfiction. Or overall pros and cons I spot often when reading Transformers fics. This journal is also comprised of personal opinions, so if you do not agree with me, I'd actually like to hear your thoughts as long as they are phrased politely. If you read this journal, I appreciate you spending your time reading through my thoughts and such.

To start off, I've recently been getting into reading Transformers fics on fanfiction.net. It is a very since site writers should check out. And one thing I began to notice is my preferences. I am completely honest when I say that I absolutely despise Mary sues. They are over powered and frustrate me with their 'kryptonite weakness' which means they have one weakness and it's so small or hard to obtain that it's annoying. Don't get me wrong, I have an oc that is sort of Mary sue myself. But the only time I ever use her that way is when someone roleplays with me, and brings out their own Mary sue. When writing a fanfiction though, Mary sues are just overall impossible to read because they are OP to the point where the story is no longer interesting.

The second thing I noted is that writers online I read often complain about OOC characters. I while I do agree that they hard to read at times, when done right I actually like reading OOC characters, or at least don't mind. The authors who can write a fanfic with an OOC character and make me enthralled with the story, wanting to read more, are some of the authors I love the most because of the way their stories are formatted. Those writers are truly talented, and they make me want to improve my own writing more and more.

Next up is some tips overall I'd like to give to aspiring writers. First of all, make sure you know where to add paragraphs. You actually want to write fanfictions like you would write an essay. Speaking lines get a separate paragraph, with the name addressed to it unless it's a back and forth conversation. Which is the only exception. When a writer doesn't and paragraphs, it makes the story overall very hard to read because readers become confused over who is speaking and when. My second tip is to make sure your spelling and grammar is correct, and read over your stuff once or preferably two to three times before posting it. I know that no one will get all the spelling errors, and even I look through my stuff and finds tons of errors. But at least going through will decrease the amount of errors in a fanfiction. Personally, I feel uncomfortable when someone has too many spelling or grammatical errors in a story. A couple to maybe even ten mistakes is fine, but when someone has like twenty mistakes in one paragraph, I get a bit annoyed.

And now I talk about slightly mature stuff. Just a disclaimer, I've only read up to rated M. Not A. Adult is too much for me, so this is based off what I've read before. If you feel uncomfortable with this topic, please skip to the next paragraph, and do not criticize me on it. I will be using certain words, so if you have been warned. It is not my fault now if you start to feel uncomfortable. So fanfics involving slash....I actually quite like them not because of the sex and nudity, but because it opens to me a different style of writing. I'm not interested in items such as r-a-p-e and frankly frown upon the act. What I find attracting is how I can visualize the horror, and how the writer is capable of being able to write such a scene so well. Even with fight scenes I see written, it's amazing how I can visualize everything. Every detail is imaginable, and I love being able to go so deep into a story like that. How intimate writers can be with sex scenes and slash. This paragraph is basically me explaining what I think about slash and especially sex scenes. R-a-p-e, while I despise the act, is very interesting to read because of how people who write it are very good at it. The scenes are detailed, the emotions go full swing, and like I said, it's very well formatted.

Overall, fanfictions to me are supposed to show thoughts and scenes visualized and brought into being. Which is why I strive to improve my writing and write constantly. Even though I don't post 95% of everything I write. Thank you for reading this list of crap, and I honestly don't expect much.
Poll: PLEASE ANSWER THIS!!

I'm not core so this is the next best thing. So I'm trying to get into writing again, and I'm not sure which one people want to see. Blitzwing x OC's, Starscream x Reader, or KO x Reader. I get people asking for more on all of them, so yeah. Please don't say 'do whatever you want' because that does NOT help me.

I sigh as I was just returning from a long day of college classes and i set up my computer to begin playing some minecraft. I grin as i log into my fave server TimeCraft under my user name Elf_Girl_Caitlin. "okay...time to play~!" I had already done my homework in between classes and lunch so I was treating myself to some much needed downtime... [plan is i get sucked into the game.]

I grin as i started playing, "hehe ok let's see how my farm is doing?" I smile as i made my character head to the little farm where my vegetables and wheat was growing. i harvested a few carrots and planed a few. I then got my character ready to go and look for ore in a cave system i found yesterday. "okay...got my new iron sword...got my shield and a few steaks and a cooked chicken...got torches....and my iron pickax...okay let's take on this cave!" I smile as i enter the cave and start searching. I grin, "Oh more coal...can't go wrong with that." I started to mine it.
