Title: Borealis 77/95: New Dawn – Part 2
Author: tainry
Disclaimer: Not mine, no money.
Rating: R just in case
Characters/Pairing(s): ensemble, Optimus/Vector, Cyclonus/OC Rutile, Elita/Optimus/Vector, Perceptor/Rutile. The usual, really. Ensemble/ensemble. XD
Warnings: OCs, pnp robot smexings and babymaking, (minor) character death, angst, m/m, f/m.
Summary: Wherein Optimus knows for sure what Shockwave is doing; the Greenhouse is built; robots dance; and the usual after-dance shagging ensues!
Notes: Suggested listening: Anthem of the World by Future World Music for the airing of the Greenhouse! Colors of Love by Thomas Bergersen for the Dance!
An Actual EngineerTM was consulted regarding moving large volumes of air around, and resulting wind speeds thereof, so those numbers were not pulled out of a nether orifice, were indeed calculated with Real Math! Woo!
The “…I am but a quiet, unassuming mechanism.” line is totally tiamatschild’s! <333333
Also! Special thanks to Mllemusketeer for help with Strika and with bioethics! (Any heckups or awkwardnesses are mine.)
~21K words.

Part I

At AO3

Long game, Jazz thought, door-wings twitching. Long game on legs.Collapse )

These chapters have fewer explosions and more conversations--plus a confrontation or two--as the fallout continues, and plot threads are slowly resolved ...

Title: Giants of the Earth, Chapter 33 and Chapter 34
Author: hopeofdawn and fractalserpent
Rating: PG-13
Verse: Bayverse/movieverse
Characters/Pairing: this chapter--the Giant, Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Sunstreaker, Springer, Soundwave, and many, many other ensemble characters ....

Warnings/Notes:Takes place after DOTM, with minor tweaks to movieverse events/characters (so there are minor spoilers for the third movie). Most of the characterizations will be taken more from G1--especially Optimus, who is *not* the 'kill 'em all, let Primus sort 'em out' character he is in the movies. Most of the onscreen 'deaths' of Decepticons and Autobots have also fallen victim to authorial override--see the fic for details. Mild warnings for threats of violence and hatchling chaos. :D

White Aster was an awesome beta, and was great in pointing out things we missed--as always, all remaining mistakes are our own. :)

That same fallout, still in the atmosphere, meant no human-made technology stood a chance at peering through the murk to follow the battle raging over southern Nevada. All NEST could do was listen to stories told by exhausted, frightened survivors: of how passing ships flipped vehicles over like toys in their wake, endless lines of evacuees along highways ignored in favor of distant Autobot targets. Of driving under shadows that blotted out the sun for thirty miles. Of watching the horizon light up with incandescent, eye-searing flares of light, the sky glowing green and white, their very bones vibrating as the earth below quaked and shook.

i'm just looking for fics that feature unnecessary amounts of sam!whump (torture, rape, bullying, unpleasant things, etc). or humans being abused in some shape or form (doesn't matter who or what is inflicting pain).

or fics that show how much the mechs (auto/con, no diff) care for their human allies? that they're wanted/important? bonus points if the concern steams from what i asked above.

any pairing is fine by me.

A new chapter, in which Maggie decides to apply chemistry to cooking, and finds out more about her new 'owners' ...

Title: Negotiation, Chapter 5
Author: fractalserpent, hopeofdawn
Rating: R/NC-17 (this chapter is PG-13, though)
Verse: Bayverse/movieverse, with some G1 additions
Characters/Pairing: this chapter--Maggie Madsen, Ratbat, Ravage, Steeljaw, Buzzsaw, Patchjob (OC), Erasure (OC), Raindance

Warnings/Notes:This is an AU off of our 'Sound and Fury' verse, in which the Autobot/Decepticon civil war never happened, and Cybertronians have found *ahem* unique new uses for humans. The rape/noncon archive warning is for the overall themes of this story-verse, which is neck deep in consent issues. We'll continue to use this archive warning on every installment due to the nature of the story-verse. Please heed the warnings if this isn't your thing.

“Hey Steely! Oh wow, it really is you!” Sharp black talons closed over the rim of the datapad, obscuring the feed from several of the cameras. “Long time no see! Whatcha been up to? Is your carrier still talking his way into everywhere he shouldn’t be in Kalis?” Another narrow, wedge-shaped helm popped down into the visual field as the datapad tried to focus. “I noticed that Ravage had just booked a transport pod, but I never thought it’d be you! Wait until I tell Rainy--it’s gonna be great to have you here. We can all go out, swap some memories, find ourselves a party or three, just like the old days--”

“Stealing my calls halp,” squeaked Ratbat breathlessly from somewhere under Erasure’s coils.

“Buzzsaw--” Ravage growled. Buzzsaw tilted his helm, scarlet optics flickering in surprise at his cohort-mates’ obvious exasperation.

“Whaaat? Why are you looking at me like that? It’s just Steeljaw. We saw the booking notice go out, so I figured I’d come see who was visiting. And it wasn’t even my idea--Frenzy was just checking up on the suite’s data traffic, so it’s not my fault!”

Title: Giants of the Earth, Chapter 32
Author: hopeofdawn and fractalserpent
Rating: PG-13
Verse: Bayverse/movieverse
Characters/Pairing: this chapter--the Giant, Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Sunstreaker, Springer, Soundwave, and many, many other ensemble characters ....

Warnings/Notes:Takes place after DOTM, with minor tweaks to movieverse events/characters (so there are minor spoilers for the third movie). Most of the characterizations will be taken more from G1--especially Optimus, who is *not* the 'kill 'em all, let Primus sort 'em out' character he is in the movies.

//What mountain!? Giant, what the frag--//

But the rising energy was subsuming the tacnet now, as well, burning it out, soaking every last bit of bandwidth into that coruscating dome of energy. Each pulse throbbed farther, sweeping in like the tide, washing everything inevitably into the deep.

Megatron and Optimus were almost invisible in the midst of that vortex, reduced to ragged shadows within the light. Between them, two brilliant slivers had pulled themselves free to hang in the air, burning like the heart of a star, too painful to look at directly. Felt more than seen, the twinned shards strobed, pulsing as they neared each other. Sheets of physical light danced through the ash, splitting and merging, one moment fractalline, the next pure disorder. They robed the two mecha at the epicentre like nacre, petals unfolding from the air itself. Strobing flares lanced in a column skyward, shining through every obstacle. Every color was in that light, all the wavelengths, all the amplitudes, and all the endless singing spaces in between.

Title: Negotiation, Chapter 4
Author: fractalserpent, hopeofdawn
Rating: R/NC-17 (this chapter is PG-13, though)
Verse: Bayverse/movieverse, with some G1 additions
Characters/Pairing: this chapter--Soundwave, Sundor, and Maggie Madsen

Warnings/Notes:This is an AU off of our 'Sound and Fury' verse, in which the Autobot/Decepticon civil war never happened, and Cybertronians have found *ahem* unique new uses for humans.

“Rust-humping… son of a toaster --ugh!-- skew-wheeled excuse for a bingled shag wagon--” Maggie aimed a frustrated kick at the cleaning drone. Heavily burdened, the machine wobbled a few skittering steps sideways, spidery legs going every which way. Catching its balance and possibly spotting a stain, the tabletop-with-legs tried to saunter off, its burden swaying precariously.

“Oh no you don’t -- dammit!” Maggie lunged, grabbed at one of the braided metal ropes she’d used to secure all her stuff to the creature’s back. Clicking and chirping like a demonic cuckoo clock, the cleaning drone staggered to a halt, shorter front legs waving disconsolately as Maggie hauled it back towards the lift.

Getting close to the end ... and in the words of one of our commenters, 'Primus sez he's tired of all this shit.' :D

Title: Giants of the Earth, Chapter 31

“We’re more than a little busy right now, you slaggers, so you can fragging well put your guns away. Stand DOWN, Sunstreaker!” Ratchet snarled, alternately jabbing his little plasma torch at an overeager Decepticon from among the forces now surrounding them--though they didn’t seem to be too sure whether they were supposed to be hauling the Autobots off as prisoners of war or standing guard--and his own overeager frontliner.

//Springer and I can take point and punch us free, Optimus,// Sunstreaker turned to a higher authority. //We need to regroup. The minute the battle clears up, *he’s* going to be here, and you’re not in any shape to--//

“No, Sunstreaker,” came Optimus’ unexpected reply. “I will stay.” Blue optics turned, looking towards the advancing form of the Giant, and the ash-choked sky behind him. “The Giant, the humans, Autobots and Decepticons all have risked everything this day; I will do no less. And I believe … I wish to see what Megatron will do.”

Title: A Universal Concept-Chapter 17

Pairings: Jazz/Maggie Madsen, Ironhide/Sarah Lennox/Will Lennox, Optimus Prime/Ratchet, Bumblebee/Sam Witwicky, Barricade/Mikaela Banes

Summary: What is love? Is it an instinct? An emotion? Or an ability that can transcend species? After eons of conflict, the war-weary Autobots have a new home, a new life, and a chance for something more. And for a single Decepticon, a chance for salvation.

Rating: M -- NSFW Mech/human sexual situations.



Light bloomed around her and the world went up in flames...
