Rec at least three fanworks that you didn’t create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
First, a post: cesperanza linked recently to this evergreen post of hers from 2006 about the NEXT story, which you should totally read if you are ever feeling inhibited or discouraged about writing.
everything, even ourselves (11080 words) by ohdeariemegoodness
TF:G1, Ultra Magnus & Optimus Prime, Soundwave/Ultra Magnus, Ultra Magnus/Bureaucracy (lol)
my rec: this is just hilarious and great, and poor Ultra Magnus is clearly in for a confusing and difficult time. (Also I totally see pre-Megatron/Optimus in this story. ;) Also read her other TF stories, they are super fun; where we had thought to find is actually an AU of And I Alone Have Escaped To Tell You. :D
The Field Ballad (1809 words) by AltraViolet
TF: IDW G1, Megatron/Rodimus
my rec: okay so tbh I am not into IDW's Autobot Megatron at all, or the entire Lost Light concept at all for that matter, but this story is great! I love the whole concept of the field ballad and even if Autobot Megatron is not Megatron, he is an interesting character and I love Rodimus and their interaction in this too.
and a bonus, my own awesome gift from the Secret Solenoid exchange:
Wiser Eyes (4712 words) by Harutemu
Transformers: Prime, Megatron/Optimus Prime
my rec: OK so I have to preface this by saying that I have massive problems with the TF:Prime backstory (which is either completely out of control of its own politics or deliberately ultra-right-wing or BOTH), so essentially what I am always looking for in a TFP story is anything that fixes that, and this story did just that! \o/
