They are a couple weeks early this year - warm super early spring, although it's supposed to get cold again next week.

Thunderstorms rolling in, mmmmm, nice - although there's a fair to middlin' chance of tornadoes (in February, no less!), so will have to sleep with my phone turned up for alerts.

Last chapter of Winter Prompts from Project Resetverse is up! <33333333333333333333
Winter Prompts Chapt 5
Sproingy Jetfire, hee!

Voltron fandom is celebrating Shiro's birthday today (although it's canonically on Feb 29), so I've been having fun going through the "Shiro" tag on tumblr finding art of happy Shiro getting presents or just a nap, lol, and they did a most adorable interview with his voice actor on Facebook:

Chapter 3 of Winter Prompts by tainry in Project Resetverse is up!Jazz requires cuddles! Barricade requires cuddles! Prowl requires cuddles! And gets them! Prowl/TC! *bounces around* <3333333333333333333333 :D

fanfiction.net Voltron fic - MisalignedShiro's arm malfunctions and Pidge fixes it - exactly the Voltron fic I wanted ^_^

Ao3 - The Martian Blue HorizonA total soap opera, as the author says, lol, and I'm enjoying it very much - a one night stand before Mark Watney leaves for Mars has predictable results. Not complete, but updates regularly.

Tainry wrote things! Wonderful things! And more to come!!! :DDDDDDDDDDDD

Hatchlings in snowsuits. I repeat, hatchlings in snowsuits. This is not a drill.

In other happy news, groundhog that I rescued last fall that had a probable raccoon roundworm brain infection and poor long-term prognosis...is doing just fine? Still has balance/movement issues, which mainly amount to her moving slowly and occasionally tipping over (very rarely, now, not because she's any better, I think she's just got a better idea of what she can and can't do and is more careful), but has not gotten any worse, and otherwise seems super healthy. I went ahead and put her on my wildlife permits, and she had a small debut over the weekend for groundhog day and rocked it! Her long-term health is still uncertain, but definitely looking brighter :)

In lieu of vacuuming, or cleaning my bedroom, or other householdly duties yesterday, I wrote a thing! This takes place before Barricade "captures" First Aid, during his first winter with the hatchlings.

Project Resetverse - Winter on Earth is cold. Too cold for hatchlings. Barricade comes up with an organic solution. )

I wrote a thing! Dragged painfully from my brain, sentence by sentence over the last month, in between trying to be more politically active (which I find drains the creativity out of me like being covered with several worrisome, creativity-draining leeches - still trying to find a happy balance). Also, trying to flesh out six OCs, even if just a little, is hard! Soooooo rusty, but hopefully it makes sense - Happy almost New Year :)

Title: Missing Piece
Universe: Project Reset, Librariobots

Optimus put a hand to his chest involuntarily as his spark gave a strange happy surge. )

And then there was a birthday box on my doorstep! With many wondrous things in it, including tissue paper \o/ (Toast ate part of a starch packing peanut, too, but one seemed to be enough, lol).

I've run out of mostly-written-out stuff on Still Waters and now have a bunch of jumbled ideas, so sorting out next chapter of that may take awhile. Have some more panicking Ambassador Quig for this week :) Contains some alien marsupial-like reproduction for the Nebulons, so sorta mpreg.

Proceed to made up Nebulon headcanon ahoy! )

Niecelet successfully wrangled! Here's part two of the previous snippet-fic (if you're confused, go one post back ^_^)

In which Ambassador Quig realizes he's in WAY over his head )
playswithworms: (Default)
So remember that list of plot bunnies and things I posted last week? Brain decided heck with any of them, let's work on this completely different idea instead! Based on this idea for Librariobot OC characters from several months ago. Very short, but there's a second part I've been poking at and might post later today (baby sitting niecelet again, but not as late this time). I'll probably post this as it's own separate fic on Ao3 rather than with the other Project Reset snippets, just in case I get inspired to add more chapters later on. Fall busy season is here in full force, but you never know! :D

Sentinel Prime's opinion on femme-sparks in no way reflects the opinion of the author's )

My usual Saturday-off work schedule got rearranged this week to allow co-worker to go adopt a puppy from a rescue in Illinois (I'm a puppy enabler! I admit it! :D), so not much writing time today. Next chapter of Still Waters still needs quite a bit of tweaking, so instead have a snippet!

Project Reset-verse, contains a bit of robot breast-feeding-equivalent.

Bonus snippet! I've been helping out with niecelet once a week to give brother time to work on his photography stuff - she's walking now, as of last week, cute as the dickens and into everything. I spent last time following her up and down the stairs about 40 times and holding out my hands so she could carefully stash tiny pieces of shredded Kleenex. Such experiences may have influenced the following snippet :P


Project Resetverse - Thundercracker being baffled by hatchlings. Takes place shortly after the end of Project Reset: the Prequel )

Hookay then, LJ poll shows a slight lead for Project Resetverse so starting with this one. Fair warning - this is the only part I have written out, and I *think* I know where I'm going with this but until I actually start writing it, there's no knowing how long it's going to take me. So, apologies in advance if this turns out to be a horrible horrible tease! I'll try to post at least a bit of something once a week, no guarantees as to what ^_~

To recap, since it's been awhile: the Protectobots arrive on Earth shortly after the events of DOTM, and First Aid confronts Optimus about leaving Megatron in torment, unable to die with the Allspark in his chest. Optimus, already clinging to the bare shreds of his sanity, turns on his own hatchling and nearly kills First Aid, triggering Aid's last molt cycle in which it is revealed that he is the Prime spark of his clutch. In an agony of guilt, Optimus follows Aid's plea to heal Megatron instead with the power of the Matrix, and between the Matrix and the Allspark and the deep bond that still exists between them, Megatron is reforged into Galvatron, and Optimus is made whole again in spark and mind. (Project Reset Chapt 4 has the slightly less Cliffs Notes version).

Title: Project Reset - Astrogenesis (1/?)
Characters: Optimus Prime, Galvatron, Will Lennox, Charlotte Mearing
Universe: Bayverse DOTM fix-it fic
Rating: T overall, K for this chapter though
Word Count: 1190
Warnings: Mention of (hypothetical) spiders. Eventual descriptions of mpreg (of the glowy chest things variety), and alien reproduction.
Summary: The good news: Earth is not going to turn into a ball of molten lava, thanks to Galvatron. The bad news: there's still a lot of red tape to work out. Optimus needs some time off to take care of his family, and his human family pulls some strings.

Oh yes, and somehow Charlotte Mearing is President. Maybe the White House got swallowed up by the lava or something *handwave* )

Late b-day surprise from tainry (late presents, my favorite! :D ) including many delights, not least of which was this adorable sketchlet which I just had to share: Project Reset Barricade and TC being nommed on by hatchlings \o/ <33333333333333333333333

The fruits of three snow days in a row! Snippets! :D Had them all mostly written Tuesday, but with all the playing catch up at work (leaks from melting ice on the roof! frozen pipes and no water at our older buildings! ninety minute commutes over compacted ice-chunk roads! fun times...) it's taken me 'till now to tweak them and get 'em posted. As per usual with snippets, lots of jumping all over the space-time continuum. No warnings for this batch.


Taking care of hatchlings is messy; Barricade needs a bath. )
playswithworms: (Default)
Since there's a lot of hatchlings in Project Reset-verse (fifty-six total, I believe, and then they have hatchling names and chosen names, most of them) and even I start to lose track, here's a field guide!

At long last! The last chapter! I feel like there should be something more to it than mostly Barricade deep ponderings, since it's taken so dagurn long to get here, but anyway. Ta da!

Warnings and Notes: Brief references to mpreg and spawning, liberty taken with characterizations for my own nefarious plans, shameless self indulgence.
Summary: Barricade has some time to think, gets another job offer, and finds the universe still has a few surprises in store.


Saying goodbye had been a mistake. He’d leave them a datapad or something to read when they were older. )

I was debating whether to make this one really long last chapter, or break it in two, but the very last bits still have some stubborn holes and things what need figuring out, so rather than making folks wait until every last figuring gets figured, I've broken it into two chapters. Very last chapter will therefore be shorter-ish, barring the holes snowballing.
