Sonic OC - Kione Profile
Name: Kione (formerly Reon) the Pangolin
Alliance: Generally neutral
Personality: Stubborn and snarky, Kione still retains a confidence in his abilities that he's had since childhood. He has mellowed out somewhat since his teenaged years, and now is much more reliant on having and working off of a plan. However, if said plan goes awry, Kione can't quickly adjust to the change, and split-decisions often cause him to freeze, wasting vital time. Self-doubt is usually a foreign thing, to him, and when he does experience it, he overreacts to it, as he does with most of his fears. Water deeper than his knees terrifies him, as he cannot swim, and wide open spaces with no cover put him on edge.
He still mourns over his past, though. Kione is almost constantly homesick for his family (with whom, he's had no contact since his exile), and he worries about what they think of him. He regrets ever picking the fight with
G1 - BlackworkName: Blackwork
Age: Mental human equivalent of 54
Alt mode: 1985 Pontiac Fiero GT
Appearance: Red armor with black accents, silver 'skin', orange optics, and a black face, hands, and feet. (working on for further detail)
Personality: Strong-willed and not very respectful of authority, Blackwork has a bit of a temper problem, but has a pretty deep well of patience. That said, when that well is exhausted, he explodes. Violently. Charismatic, but with no taste for authority, Blackwork would like nothing more than to return to his beloved job, and work, instead of fight. He only follows orders out of respect or fear (as is the case with Megatron), and he has a very keen optic for detail.
He can't stand crooked lines, and will almost always have to fix them before moving on, else it will bother him for joors. He doesn't like to leave projects unfinished, but will st
CE - Breaking Canon AlternateWe’ve covered “Breaking Canon” in a previous article, but this time around, we’re aiming to delve further into what actually breaks Canon, ranging around various series. We’ll start with G1, work our way through RiD, TFA, and finally end with Prime.
- - - - - - -
In G1, it may seem pretty difficult to break Canon, as the Canon includes such things as dragons, (some degrees of) magic, human-to-Cybertronian changes (and vice versa, in later series). However, when creating a G1 OC, one still has to keep them within the boundaries of this (admittedly wacky) series.
For example, an OC with a dragon alt mode (i.e.: Dragonsbane, see header) is plausible, but it must still be done right. The one Canon dragon (episode “A Decepticon in King Arthur’s Court”) lived in the Dark Ages, and as none are shown in modern times (the 1980s), it’s safe to assume they went extinct/are otherwise hidden. So simply scanning a living dragon for an alt mode is
CE - TechorganicsIn varying series, and in varying degrees, technorganics are TF Canon.
There was Autobot X/Spike in G1, the majority of Beast Wars, and Sari in TFA. Techorganics are pretty common in all sorts of media, as well, and can be horrendously badass and terrifying - the Borg of Star Trek, anyone? Unfortunately, many of the techorganic OCs this blog is shown (being TF specific) aren’t done very well, and I’d like to go over why.
Right away, there’s the issue of copying Canon, especially in a TFA setting. Because Sari is the only techorganic of her type in the series, she is the exception, not the rule, and creating an OC just like her is breaking Canon.
TFA is a world of strange - human villains that actually pose threats to TFs, pretty princess villains that ride unicorns, corrosive villains that terrify even Grimlock, etc. It isn’t a horrible stretch to create a technorganic through an encounter with an Allspark shard or something. But when you copy a Canon, it shows
CE - Suspension of DisbeliefWhat is ‘suspension of disbelief’? Coined by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1817, and it is a willingness to believe the unbelievable - a sacrifice of realism and logic for the sake of enjoyment. Is it used often? Damned straight.
Every story, from medieval tales of dragons and wizards to modern tales of superheroes and deep-space travel utilizes the suspension of disbelief. In each one, the reader/viewer knows at heart that what they are watching could never be true….and yet, they watch/read it anyway, and push aside normal logic and realism in favor of enjoying the story. What does this have to do with the TF universe? Everything, really.
Every OC - every fanfiction - is written with suspension of disbelief, whether the creators intend to or not. Creators want to make their OC’s unique, and special, to catch the public’s eye. But this plan goes awry if the suspension of disbelief is broken. Why? Without it, readers/viewers can only see the OC for their flaw
CE - Profiles Long and ShortWriting profiles for a character can be pretty tricky business and depending on what the character is going to be used for, the creators may find themselves having to rewrite them over and over again to make them fit. The most common reason might be retro fitting a specific character to be integrated into a certain role-play or series. This can take a lot of time and effort on the creator’s part and often it’s not done correctly or the character ends up changing too much or too little. Not to mention that you might be forced to write a most compact version of a longer, much more detailed profile. Thus making is hard to try to squish down the information to make it easier to read without compromising the character.
So how exactly do we solve these issues?
Easy, you write both a short and a long version. Essentially, you’re creating two kinds for two different uses. The compact version is of course the “easy read” type you would be using for role-plays or fo
CE - About Taking Critique and NOT Causing DramaAbout taking critique and avoiding butthurt.
In light of the recent drama, I’ve decided to go ahead and write this article even though I really wish I didn’t have to. But since many people are apparently terrible at taking harsh, but honestly helpful advice, I’m breaking out textedit to help out those those who maybe currently putting bandaids on their asses.
Let’s start off with by addressing the two situations in which you might encounter as a character creator, and people this goes for any fandom not JUST for Transformers.
Situation one, you’ve asked for a critique but you received one you found to be very harsh, unfair or just plain rude. Is it really though? Take a closer look. Is this harshness actually backed up by valid reasoning? Does the person who posted the critique prove examples as to why they’re judging you on said points? If yes to at least one of these, then yes that critique is valid and there for you frankly have no right to respon
CE - On Self InsertsI’m going to go ahead and tackle this subject since I often do this myself in role-plays and sometimes in publicized works. I admit to having used used both my human self and a Transformer version of me on more then one occasion.
So what is exactly a self insert if the name doesn’t already clear that up? Simply put it is the act of inserting yourself in fandom canon. You’ll see this very often and MANY of the OCs we’ve reviewed are in fact self inserts.
I’ll state this here. While self inserts are gravely looked down upon, there are both good ways and bad ways of doing this with any fandom.
Let’s start off with the good kind. That being the honest to goodness true human portrayal of yourself as a character that has your appearance, nothing special, and is able to do the things you can do and nothing more. A very average character if you will. You are one of billions of people on this Earth so by no means are you yourself a unique special snowflake of
CE - Names and Naming ConventionsTransformer names are widely varied. Some sound cool (Optimus Prime, Megatron, Metroplex, etc), some are descriptive of powers (Skywarp (teleporting), Thundercracker (sonic booms), Mirage (illusion ability), etc., and some are descriptive of personality (Dead End (pessimistic), Beachcomber (nature lover), Jazz (music lover), etc). Some don’t really make sense, but still sound good (Bumblebee, Hound, etc.), some are very simple (Hound, Rhinox, etc.), and still others are ironic (Rattrap, for example). There’s no real ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to name a Transformer.
However, there are several things you should avoid.
Giving Transformers names such as ‘Sally’, ‘Johnny’, or ‘April’ - names that typically sound human - are not good choices. They don’t sound very Transformer-y, and unless you can come up with a damned good reason why they chose such a human name, it just doesn’t fit. Another thing to avoid is co
Tiny Lady (Loki x Baby!Reader)“I vow that everyone here shall suffer if someone does not remove this fiend from my person!” Loki growls as he tries to untangle your curious fingers from the silken edge of his pants.
Thor’s laughter is booming as he steps forward to pick you up and hold you in one of his large arms.
“Now brother, this tiny lady is no fiend,” Thor coos playfully, stretching out a single finger to tickle at your belly.
You laugh giddily, small fingers wrapping about his finger, a large grin on your face.
“Yes,” Sif says in that gentle baby voice everyone seems so keen on adopting when in the presence of an infant, “She’s a lady.”
Sif wiggles her finger over your stomach and you watch her silently before laughing and reaching out to take one of her fingers in your hand.
“Agreed!” Fandral throws in, sauntering over to peer down at your face.
You trill delightfully at the addition of third face, hands on a new mission as they stretch

Loki x Reader You’re Reading…
“…A what??” Loki asked as the laptop quickly snapped shut in front of his face. He cast a glance over at the lovely damsel known as (Name), who had an embarrassed blush creeping up her face.
“I-It’s nothing worth looking at, really!” She replied as she made an attempt to high tail it out of there ASAP. Unfortunately, Loki had other ideas.
“No, (Name), I want you to tell me; What was that Loki x (Name) piece of electric literature I saw on your page a moment ago?” He half-asked, half-demanded. She couldn’t help but gulp as she gave in to his intimidation.
“I-It was a fan fiction.”
“A fan fiction? What kind of fiction is that?” He asked curiously, her fingers drumming along the top of the laptop nervously.
“A fan fiction is a story where people will take two characters or people and put them together in a story. Sometimes it’s a character and the
Depressed!Romano x Reader- Whiskey Lullaby
He had kept all your letters.
The normal, almost automatic like thing people would usually do when they receive letters is to read them once, or skim them over again just to make sure that they had read it entirely right, quickly soaking in the words that had been written or typed by a loved one or friend. Even a bill of some sort would be quickly read through and paid in no time, leaving the white strip to be tossed into a nearby trash can- And the only time people would usually send letters is to wish someone a happy birthday, or to congratulate the person on some life accomplishment or simple goal that they were aiming to achieve, like finally bearing a child or graduating from high school and entering the college of their dreams. Simple letters had been getting scarcer the more technology through the ages has progressed into a world wide fenominom, leaving pieces of paper with conversations people would treasure and hold near to them to diminish little by little.

Neko!Dave X Reader: Give Me Love!
(Y/n) sighed and stretched.
“Fiiiiinally, I’m done!” She exclaimed.
She closed her laptop and sighed again, getting up.
“Guess I’ll go watch a movie.” She thought to herself.
She began heading down and went to take her favorite drink, some popcorn and of course, some apple juice for Dave.
As she entered the living room, her eyebrow twitched.
Dave’s ear twitched at the sound of (Y/n) calling him. He looked at her.
“Why are you without a shirt?”
Dave shrugged. (Y/n) sighed and went to the sofa, sitting in it. Dave sat beside her and slowly got closer. (Y/n) didn’t say anything, she knew what he wanted.
“Here.” She handed him his apple juice.
Dave slightly smiled and snuggled in (Y/n)’s neck as a thanks. He then drank all the juice.
(Y/n) started the movie and placed the popcorn and the drink in the small table next to her.
Then, she felt weight in her lap. She knew what it was.
(Butler!Dave x Reader) Ironic
That’s a fancy name for a butler, she thought. Then she notices another letter inside the envelope. It says :
We forgot to tell you that one of the actor which is working with us agreed to marry you~ He is a fine men, don’t worry.
Dave Strider, your new butler will teach you about the movie world business!
The engagement is in a month~
P.S. You can’t refuse, and don’t start an argument with us.
Love, Mom and Dad
Now that’s surprising. She frowns, feeling angry inside. Why didn’t her parents ask about her opinion, at least? But then, she just sigh. She knew she doesn’t stand a chance against her parents.
Just as she’s about to put the letter inside the envelope back, she heard a knock on the door. That must be Strider.
The said man opens the door, revealing himself. He’s pretty good looking, with platinum blonde hair. But unfortunately, he wears a pair of aviator shade
England X Reader: Teach Me How to Ice Skate
“Arthur, can you finally tell me why you decided to bring me here?” you asked, turning your head to the side to look at your emerald-eyed companion who walked next to you, your gloved hand tightly holding on to his.
At the sound of your voice, Arthur shifted his gaze, which was previously focused on the path ahead of him, over to look at you, and upon seeing the eager and slightly impatient expression on your face, he let out a tiny smile. “You’ll find out soon, _____,” he replied, turning his gaze back in front of him.
You pouted slightly and clenched your fists impatiently, causing your grip on Arthur’s hand to tighten. “You’ve been telling me that ever since we walked out of the house, and I still don’t know why.”
“I’ll tell you once we get there,” Arthur answered simply, not even turning his head to look at the slightly disappointed expression on your face.
You let out a groan and removed your hand from h
The Mirror (Loki x Reader)
Loki has no idea, you’re certain, of how lonely he is. You watch him pace about his chambers—as you always did—clearly unsure as to what to do with himself. He feels angry, betrayed, and confused. And always he forces himself to carry this burden alone. His sits down heavily on his bed, head in his hands, and you move to obtain a finer view of the man. Perhaps you should reveal yourself to him, let him know someone was there for him. But you knew full and well how skittish he could be, both untrusting and unwilling. You run a gentle hand down the edge of the glass, tracing the outline of his defeated reflection. You sigh heavily as you pull away from the mirror, washing the image of the man from it confines, leaving only a copy of your lone image.
The knock at your chamber door pulls from your reverie and elegantly you glide over to answer its call. It’s Sif. She grins at you and you can’t help but smile back as you invite her in.
“How have you been?
My Boss' Secret 8 (Modern AU! Rivaille x Reader)
Scratchy and ticklish, that’s how I would describe the fibers that reached up and itched my cheek. There’s one major problem with my current sleeping arrangement and of course, the perpetrator also happens to be the very source of my recent problems. I don’t think there’s any need to elaborate more on that fact.
“You’re a terrible host, I hope you know that.” With my voice low and still recovering from my sudden wake up call, I called out to the man stretched across the bed.
“The alarm was ringing for ten minutes and you were still off in whatever sick world you dream of.”
“Who wakes up at six in the morning on a Sunday anyways!?” I cried in utter displeasure and found the strength to pick myself of the carpeted ground.
Seeing that I was ready to get up and moving, Rivaille removed himself from the bed and began to push me towards the bathroom.
“Hurry up and get ready, we have cleaning to do.”
Oh somebody ple
Meeting the Family- Lovi x Reader
“It’s getting colder,” you whispered to yourself, watching your breath steam up the window on the bus. You snuggled down into your hoodie and glanced at your phone. You smiled as you saw the message- I’ll be right there.
The bus made a screeching sound as it stopped at the end of the street. You got up, grabbed your bags and thanked the driver. You smiled really big when you started walking off the bus. You jumped, bags and all, and the reason for your smile caught you.
“I-idiota!” he yelled. But he didn’t let go.
“I missed you, Lovi!” you said as you hugged him as best as you could with bags in your hands.
He didn’t say anything, but held you close for a minute. You thought he’d hold you like that forever until you heard someone say, “Fratello, is that your fidanzata?”
You heard him curse quietly under his breath. You giggled. “Lovi, who’s this?”
He set you down and took your
