Man, where do I even start with this? I had aimed to do another horror thing in the same vein as What Waits in the Dark and, while trying to decide what exactly I should do, remembered the Inquisitor from Red Dwarf while at the same time having one of my favorite Clive Barker stories, Dread, in the back of my mind and decided to mix the two together. It was going to be short, simple and fun to write.

Almost a year and over 23k words later, I've finally bullied out the last of it. It is such a relief to kick this out of my WIP folder. Now complete, I'm linking to my AO3 for ease of reading.

Also this is very likely going to be my last playing around in Destruction-verse. I love these characters dearly and I'm not normally concerned with not adhering to canon (especially in this fandom), but I think I've told all the stories I can with them. I'm sure I'll do more Transformers stuff and Wreckers are never far from my giant alien robot thoughts but for now: after all the torture I've done them, I think they deserve a rest.

Six years later and I am now 40% done with this meme. I'm not even going to pretend to know what direction I was going for when I wrote this. You could say I was... lacking navigation. Also despite some (speculative) IDW references, still firmly in Destruction-verse.

My god- has it really been two months since my last drabble? Unfortunately, that's what happens with nearing graduation. This came upon me in the middle of homework. I don't think it came out as well as I intended but seeing as I only really had a vague idea to beginning with, I'm guessing it's close enough.

So this should have been done, like, two friggin' months ago but I had problems with writer's block, school, writer's block, more writer's block, rl issues, and AAAARRGH, more or less in that order. But at least it's done, huh? Huh?

Also, apologies for the lack of beta on this, but I wanted to make sure it was posted on time. So sorry for the delay -.-;;

Right now, someone like you is exactly what we need. )

Jesus on a cracker, I can't believe this took five months (does anyone even remember this?). Honestly it really didn't, but the last section was just so difficult for me to write in terms of subject-matter. Even though I knew this was going to happen pretty much from the begin, it didn't make it any easier to do. So for that reason I'm putting a possible trigger warning for the last section. Thankfully, though, it's mainly a there-and-gone thing and shouldn't come up again later, but just in case- warning for brief implied unintentional misconduct between sparkling and mech near the end.

....wasn't this story supposed to be cute and fun? Where the hell did I get off that road?

So, in an effort to get me to write again but in a low-stress setting (and to help kick-start some creative juices) I've decided to do a short series of drabbles. These come from the third prompt list from [livejournal.com profile] 10_whores. Their twist is you have to fill 10 prompts with one central character and a different character for each prompt. The central one is, since he's my favorite, Springer. The rules for this are as follows:

Ten people are allowed to claim one prompt from the list along with one character of their choice. So 10 prompts, 10 requesters, 10 pairs (or as close to pairings as the characters will let me get them). I have no idea how long it'll be for me to get to any of these. It's mainly just for me to keep in the back of my head for whenever I have a free hour or two.

01. navigation - Hound ([livejournal.com profile] mommimus_prime) Darker Paths
02. look to the sky - Silverbolt ([livejournal.com profile] tiptoptile)
03. freedom - Thundercracker ([livejournal.com profile] muffins_of_god) And Lines Between
04. calligraphy - Smokescreen ([livejournal.com profile] meallanmouse) Long is a Dragon
05. a midsummer night - Skids ([livejournal.com profile] vixens_shadow)
06. head in the clouds - Perceptor ([livejournal.com profile] tainry) Struggle On
07. disoriented - Jazz ([livejournal.com profile] nkfloofiepoof)
08. Pandora's box - Prowl ([livejournal.com profile] hellsangelcurse)
09. without a name - Vortex ([livejournal.com profile] kirin_saga)
10. paranoia - Rodimus Prime ([livejournal.com profile] okamichan)

ALL CLAIMS HAVE BEEN TAKEN

So there was always something about Spotlight: Kup and some reactions to it that bothered me subconsciously and I didn’t realize what it was until I was rereading it today. Everyone- including himself –blamed Springer for the deaths of the Autobots that tried to retrieve Kup even though he wasn’t there. He put Perceptor in charge until he could actually make it to Ark-17. In the issue he shows up after the first failed attempt (of which it’s heavily implied it was far from the first time). He says, quote:

“…I’m eager to know what sort of mess you and the rest of the crew of Ark-17 are making of this exercise, Perceptor. When Autobot Intelligence sent word that Kup had been found after all this time, I thought I could trust you and your team with the task of retrieving him.”

Of course, I try to put this into a drabble and Springer still managed to take the blame himself like the idiot he is. *sighs*

Title: Not Without Fault

Don’t you dare try to shoulder the responsibility for this. )

One of the more interesting parts from the Marvel UK part of the comics, I thought. The long and short of it? Springer, leader of the Autobot Wreckers, and Carnivac (he's a pretender and his protective shell is made to resemble a wolf but he really is a robot underneath), leader of the Decepticon Mayhems, end up fighting together against a greater evil, come to respect each other as fighters and eventually befriend one another.
