   “Well, I can’t say this was the best trip I’ve ever had, but it might be the most memorable.” Misha turned to the young man at her side. “Kicker, are you still with me?”   He turned to her, startled out of his thoughts. “Sorry Misha. Everything that’s happened is just bringing up some bad memories is all.” He leaned forward on the balcony, his gaze going over the landscape of Iacon. “You never asked me why I ended up coming back in time like this.”   “Given the way you talked about your past, I figured it was something you weren’t eager to elaborate on. Why?

   Having little trouble noticing that the warp gate far above them was dissipating or that the Scrapmetal drones and their mysterious benefactor were seizing up and halting, Thrust turned to his leader. “Lord Galvatron, something has happened! If we are to take this installation with the forces we have, we need to do so immediately and storm this base!”   Galvatron grimaced, watching as Soundwave rebooted himself and the Scrapmetals continued on the warpath. He had been hoping for an inexhaustible supply, but clearly, that would no longer be an option. “Very well!” His sensors quickly went over the rock face, trying

   “You sure you know where you’re going?” His optics sweeping over the tunnel they found themselves in, Overcast looked less than pleased at being underground, in part because of a flier’s natural dislike of enclosed spaces and in part because of unfamiliarity.   “Certainly.” Landquake pointed upwards at one corner of the tunnel. “I’ve left UV markers along the tunnel walls. Readjust your optics, and you should be able to spot them easily.”   Most Cybertronians knew that beneath the surface of their planet was a network of access tunnels and passages. Few were aware of what purpose th

Wish me luck, folks.

Wish me luck, folks.

Next weekend was going to be when the fourth installment for Pete's Robot Con was due to be held. It got postponed, but this was before I arranged to have next week off as vacation time from work. I'm still taking that vacation time, so instead of going to that convention, I'll be going ahead with other plans. I'm hoping that by the end of business hours on Saturday, June 6, I will have accomplished the following items... One - Completed moving some furniture from my parents' place to my new place. There's still a desk that needs to get moved over, and I need that workspace for toy photos and customs. Two - Gotten shelving set up for my Transformers collection. The materials have been waiting for over a year, and the only thing keeping it from happening is my father and his being old and lazy. Three - Gotten a bookshelf that I salvaged from the trash reassembled and set up. With that in place, I can empty out a bunch of boxes filled with books. Four - Get some writing done.

Well, here we are.

Well, here we are.

The Eclipse format has now been forced upon us. I can't say I'm happy about it. Don't get me wrong, it has all sorts of neat features. I like being able to undo the removal of an image from my feed - had plenty of times where I removed something by accident, so that feature is a plus - but there's a lot of features from the old site that I liked and that I miss. And to my dying day, I will call the people in charge of this site fascists for forcing this change upon us. Anyway, I'll do my best to survive this experience. As long as I can edit my old journals, I should be okay.

Writing Update Journal - May 2020

Life continues to bombard me with madness and prevent me from getting as much done as I'd like. I'm depressed, I'm miserable, and while I'm getting things done, it feels like the universe or God or whomever is conspiring against me. Not fun. T:A-R Arc Four - "Dark Glass" - Working on this and other Transformers stuff! T:A-R Re-Edits - "Return to Normalcy" - Getting on this one soon. Editing on Novel - "Halcyon Days" - Done for now!
