A Note from Your Maintenance Supreme: As you can probably tell, this is a very long piece, with tons of terms and lots of language. This is fine and dandy if you have a rainy afternoon to kill, but, if you're looking for a quick reference, I would recommend becoming very friendly with the CTRL+F function very quickly. I've tried to keep definitions of a certain type to a similar format down the Dictionary and List, so all the body part terms should have "body" as a buzzword, towns, cities, and city-states should have "city" or something similar, etc. Let me know if you run into serious problems while using the Dictionary and List, and I will get it fixed as soon as I possibly can. Thanks for your time, cooperation, and contributions! They are VERY much appreciated.

Age (Earth Years): 19
Adriana stands at 24 ft tall and weighs 2.2 ton. Her armor is red with a hint of gold. She has a horn helm that falls from the back of her helm.

An essay by Traci Johnson (Loco Exclaimer)
This is an essay on homosexuality, especially that portrayed in relationships between the fictional characters in the fandom Transformers. The first half deals exclusively with homosexuality as an issue in itself with little to no mention of any fandom, and details my point of view on this issue. The second half details said relationships as portrayed between any two given characters from Transformers. I hope you enjoy.
Part One: Homosexuality, Morality, and Religion
I honestly find it revolting that religion is even an issue when it comes to homosexuality. It's an issue of discrimination against human beings, and ought to be treated as such. Women were seen as second-class in Biblical times; does that make them lesser beings? No.
Still, this section will deal with the "morals and ethics" of being gay.

Ratchet / Optimus
Warning: fluff, more fluff, and gay robots
Written for Jee!
There was always too much to do, but I didn't let Optimus lull me into complacency with that fact. I hadn't run a personal routine diagnostic on him since shortly after we'd landed on Earth, and it was long past time to clear that off my endless checklist. Like the other Autobots, our Prime was apprehensive when ordered to my med bay, but he relaxed after I explained my intentions. I sat him next to my console so I could continue calibrations while keeping half a processor on him as well.
We were both mildly uncomfortable at being plugged into each other where anyone could walk in, but I reminded him- and myself- that this was standard procedure. Nothing to be embarrassed about. His expression was unreadable after that, but I ignored the tingle of curiosity and returned to multitasking.
Time clicked unheeded as I worked, my concentration on calibrating reduced by the strange-yet-f
Transformers Essay - Section 3Section 3.1 - ReproductionTransformers Essay - Section 37 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
This is perhaps the touchiest subject in TransFandom. How can a pair of giant autonomous robots reproduce, after all? The answer to this is painfully simple.
The spark bond as it was explained in section 2.1 has more uses beyond the practical joining of a pair who wish to be sparkbound. The longer two sparks remain merged together during the bond, the more energy is created between the two. Should the bonded pair or group leave their sparks bonded for too long, there is a high chance of a "bud" being created.
The bud is a small polyp of energy off the parent spark and it tends to form on the spark of the member of the bonded pair or group with a higher power level. In the case of a mech being the carrier, they will often go into an extented recharge stasis period while the body directs most of its available energy sources not dedicated to maintaining proper fluid circulation and overall heal
One Human, One Spark 48Topspin sat crisscross with Miko curled up on his knee. Bulkhead mewled periodically in the quiet echoes of the Rocky Mountains, and Miko stroked her fingers through his fur to soothe him. Her cheeks were puffy. Her eyes were red.One Human, One Spark 481 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
After stumbling through some comforting words, Topspin had realized that nothing he could do or say would comfort her. So he had waited for her to cry herself dry. She had dry heaved several times, and he concluded that she had cried herself dehydrated.
Finally, he cleared his throat. “Miko, we don’t know if he’s dead.”
“You saw him get shot down,” she said glumly. Her voice rasped like sandpaper.
Topspin winced slightly. “Wreckers don’t break that easily,” he said quietly. “There’s still a chance. No one’s found the body yet.”
“How do you know?”
Though she asked, she didn’t sound that interested. Topspin released a tight and worried vent. “Twin Twist went do
One Human, One Spark 62Wheeljack was quite sure if Ultra Magnus got on him for one more Primus-slagged thing, he was going to fry his circuits.One Human, One Spark 621 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
He had thought Prowl was bad? No. No, no, no, that was NOTHING compared to Ultra Magnus. Ultra Magnus was the bane of their existence; it was enough for Wheeljack to WANT to mutilate him back into stasis lock. He found his trigger finger's self-control tested as he found he hated the mech almost as much as he hated Prowl.
See, at least Prowl had the good senses to research where each energon scouting area WAS so guys like Wheeljack, in his flashy sports car, didn't end up on a rugged mountain road and killing his suspension, whereas Twin Twist could have taken the road easily. Or, put Twin Twist on a tiny trail that would have suited Arcee's tiny alt mode. Or gotten Bumblebee stuck in rush hour traffic. Or set Smokescreen on a LONG and EMPTY road that just BEGGED for him to speed and gotten the cops on him.
Prowl was at least conscientious about these things. But Ult

All three looked up guiltily. Wheeljack covered it with a look of nonchalance. Topspin covered it with a nervous grin. Miko just plain looked guilty.
It was enough for the Prime to know, YES, he was on the right trail.
The Prime blinked down at them. “Where is Twin Twist?”
The brief flicker of a smirk across Wheeljack’s lips was all he needed. Topspin gave a nervous laugh, and Miko looked up at the two Wreckers, not understanding.
Ratchet, across the room, sees all this and had to come over, wondering what had got his leader’s hackles up. “Optimus?”
“I’ll handle this,” Optimus stressed, narrowing his optics. “Wheeljack?”
It took him a moment to school his grin. “Sir?”
“Where is Twin Twist.”
“You mean you don’t know?”
He seemed surprised. Optimus’s gaze flattened even more. “No, I do not. And he has not been seen all day.”

Chapter One: Darkness Falls, Part A
The sun glared down across the bumpy roads of Moab, Utah with a red hot intensity that made Cliffjumper’s interior bake. He and Arcee had maintained radio silence for a while now, but he had managed to pick up a short report from one of the human transmissions claiming it to be the hottest day of the year before tuning out completely. He believed it, and it was no easier on them.
Well, that was an understatement to say the least… after all, humans were pathetically weak creatures.
The fiery crimson sedan sped across the desolate pebbled terrain without a care, shooting for the closest Decepticon signal they had picked up. Dirt sprayed out from under his tires, licking his black flame finish, leaving a trail that anyone from up high could follow and he WANTED them to. The Deceptiscum wouldn’t know what hit them when this raging bull DOZED them! He could just see that look on Arcee’s he

I was only vaguely aware of the door opening, followed by unusually careful tread. All I registered was one second I was so tired I couldn't drop into recharge; the next, my salvation stood before me. Without warning I wrapped my arms around Ratchet's chassis and pressed my face to the warm metal.
Those weren't unfamiliar words; Ratchet often spoke them either in jest or as an embarrassed protest if I showed affection beyond the privacy of a locked door. But now his hands were pushing at me, struggling against my weary grasp. I let him move away, compromising by keeping his hands in mine. Tension crackled in his tightly packed energy field, his optics as dim as mine from exhaustion.
"What worries you, Ratchet?" I asked quietly. To my surprise, his proud stance drooped at my question, cycling a harsh sigh.
Clipped Chapter 1"Oh scrap," Starscream cried out as he saw the motorcycle autobot enter the small enclosure he'd found in the cave. He had one hand on a minuscule deposit of energon, and was otherwise preoccupied with keeping himself clinging to the rock face a good twenty feet off the ground.Clipped Chapter 13 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Starscream, I had a feeling I'd find you here," Arcee said with a cold stare, raising two guns and preparing to shoot. "This is for Cliff-"
"Wait! WAIT! This cavern is unstable from over mining-!" He curled up and covered his head with his arms as two blaster shots came his way, descending to the ground at an alarming rate. The relatively short tumble was not nearly as concerning as the small rocks that hit him while he lie on the ground; only a warning of the much more substantial boulders that hurriedly followed.
Starscream moaned in discomfort as he came to, a sharp pain twinging right broad wing. Without thinking much of the situation he was in, he jerked left as he sat up. A sharp metallic sound echo

The first thing Miko wanted to do to get over Bulkhead's death was to retreat into her music and never surface.
This left Wheeljack parked in the middle of nowhere with his speakers blaring some type of horrible speed metal.
But did he tell Miko he hated the stuff?
So now he found himself irrevocably tied to the human with the lie that he loved her speed metal.
Swallowing all feelings of stupidness, embarrassment, and self-consciousness, Wheeljack knew he had to throw himself fully into her music to make her believe he liked the grating on his ears. Taking a deep breath, Wheeljack probably did the dumbest thing he had ever done in his life.
"YEAH-AH-AH-AH! REK-EK-EK-EK-EK! FEHK-FEHK-FEHK-FEHK-FEHK-FEHK! OW-OW-OWYEEEEEEAAAAAAH!"
Miko loved it, however. She was currently outside the car, banging her head, strumming an air guitar, and belting out the mishmash of unintelligible lyrics that really had no words at all.
Wheeljack shuddered to think of the day

-giftfic for Jee! Feel better with fluffy gay robots <3
It was bad enough when there was just one of Bulkhead’s obnoxious and destructive friends on the loose- knowing that the first one had been a fake didn’t ease my anxiety. If the ‘Con had been that annoying just pretending to be Wheeljack… the real one was even worse. I’d lost two welders and calibration meter into the first hour of the second, ‘real’ party. And since Optimus was out doing whatever it was he did on his own- most likely covering the nightly patrols the celebrating morons had abandoned- there was no one there to ensure the noisy crowd would obey my authority.
After a third welder had been crushed underfoot, I retreated to the sick bay, allowing myself to curse and vent loudly once the doors sealed shut. It was all too tempting to break a few ob

A/N: To satisfy some curiousity as well as get this somewhere other than my school notebook, I present my theories, ideas, whatever you want to call 'em, on how a sparkling is created through the gestation chamber method. I've not seen anyone who's done a stand alone theory, meaning not part of a fic, so I decided to try my hand. Again, making shit up as I go along, but when it comes to Transformers, you pretty much have to. They don't give you all the details; you just have to fill in the blanks yourself. >8D
A New Spark
A new spark can only be created during a full-connection interface and spark-merge. Only a breeder (or the more submissive of the pair) will spark. The presence of a new spark is normally marked by energy loss and frequent purgings. The carrier's spark shares energy with the sparkling and compenstates for its own loss by redirecting energy flow from other systems. This causes a signif

Orion/Optimus x Ratchet
fluffy fluff fluff
(Please see author notes below)
Orion started when the doors whirred open, admitting a frightfully stern-looking mech. He'd unlocked the archives barely a klik ago; patrons rarely visited so early.
He wasn't even supposed to be down here, as his duties kept him busy on the upper levels, but he easily remembered the unique thrill of guiding patrons through the huge collection of data. His work could wait just a bit longer.
"Hello," he said warmly, optics widening as the mech stormed past. "...Hello?"
"Yes, thank you," the mech said absently before turning to dive down a row of shelves.
Curiously Orion followed, peeking around the corner to find the mech rummaging frantically through a set of files. A medic, then; and most likely a student, considering this area was intermediate studies on Cybertronian biology. "Can I help you find something?"
The medic glanced up in surprise, looking him over quickly with a wry grin before ret

I don't know why I haven't snuck away yet. I fully intended to do so, the second Optimus turned his back and walked away. I even had myself convinced that it would just be a few laps around base.
That's a lie. It's the strangest feeling. Almost every single part of me longs to be burning rubber, to be tracking through every old stomping ground. To visit every place where Airachnid got the better of me, out of some pathetic hope she might still be there.
But here I am. Watching moonlight glowing off of the stones that mark Cliff's grave, wondering why in the Pit I'm not doing something actually useful.
I never was one for sitting and thinking. I figure things out on the open road, or even betteroff of it. Something about the ground soaring under you, the wind across your armor and the sun on your backsomething about that makes it easier to think clearly.

I guess you could say I have a thing for disobeying orders.
Okay. Maybe it's less of a 'thing' and more of a constant habit.
In any case, I've really done it this time. Airachnid got awayAGAIN--and I've been sitting here for the past several hours, listening to Ratchet telling me I should be counting my blessings that I didn't get myself killed and that Optimus is too concerned with MECH at the moment to come over and lecture me.
Blessings. Scrap. That murderer's out there somewhere, plotting something deadly, probably head-hunting again, and I'm being treated like a disobedient child. Disobedient, I'll admit. Childlike, not hardly...It's been so long since I was a child, I can barely remember. I had to grow up fast, had to learn how to avoid danger and get out of a bad situation any way possible, because you can never guarantee that someone else will come and get you out.

Transformers Essay - Section 5Section 5.1 FliersTransformers Essay - Section 54 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
As far as Cybertronians go, fliers ("true" fliers) are something of a unique breed. Despite their rarity, they are a valuable addition to any team. Light, swift, and versatile, their natural inclination is to seek out other fliers in mating predominantly as a method to propagate their own kind.
Fliers, unlike most ground-bound mechs and femmes or those whose flight capabilities are limited to robot mode and jet-packs, are much more easily divided into those who are dominant and those who are submissive. These two factors play a large role in the choosing of a mate, though it may not be readily obvious to someone on the outside looking in exactly how dominance is decided in a relationship.
Not easily defined by size or appearance alone, personalities are what places them apart. A mech who is dominant in one relationship could, potentially, be submissive in another. As such, even a more submissive mech will be drawn to someone
