Well...I never completely gave up....I just said I was really stuck.  It got better last year when I posted Marooned and added all the new stuff to Impaled and Aftermath.  I have started a new chapter and :iconkoontah: is working on the crossover.  I am helping of course.  There's more art on the way too.  I'm glad you care though.  Would sort of suck if no one did.   :)

So happy to know that the characters are still kicking you ;) I DEVOURED the new chapters and deliberately didn't read the plot outline (well.....not for months, anyway :( ) because I wanted anything new you put up to be a surprise. I know that writing isn't easy for you, but you really do have a talent for it! And love Koontah's work as well. I stalk both your pages regularly looking for new stuff to feed my addiction.
Thankyou for delivering excellent fanfic!!Hug

Thanks for caring.  (I'm printing this comment BTW....)

If you like Koontah's work as well as mine you may be happy to know she is working on a crossover between our stories right now.

Thanks very much.  :)  He's my favorite character, so naturally making him miserable fills me with joy.

It's not going anywhere, although if you ever read the first chapters some have gone through some pretty major revisions.  :)

... Did he just kill Snarl!?

Long story...very long actually.  This is from my AU Maelstrom.  The bad guys they are dealing with like to fry your brain and replace it with their own programming.  You die, but your body still walks around - acting as anything from slave labor to infiltrators/saboteurs that still behave like you until the programming kicks in. 

In this universe Optimus and Rodimus are partners, but they can't take on these foes directly.  Optimus is mostly the front-man...running the Autobots, Cybertron, and the war with the Cons.  Rodimus deals with the rest of it behind the scenes.  Of all the Converts he's had to put down, the ones that haunt him the most are Daniel, Wheelie, and Snarl.   So yeah, he killed Snarl, although technically Snarl was already dead.

That was the plan...I went through about 10 sketchbook pages over the last few months trying to find a pose I liked.

Thanks.  I needed a chapter header.   He and Optimus are not having an easy time in my story right now...there's been a lot of meddling and a lot of crap between them.

Thanks - that's what I was going for.  It's my goal to have at least one art piece per chapter....I'd really like one per chapter section but we'll see.  Maelstrom started as a comic, but even if I can't do that anymore I can at least have illustrations for each section.  If nothing else, that's probably around 100 pictures (so far) I need to do and most of that will include Rodimus since it's his story.

What?  You mean having 5 or 6 half finished things to work on isn't efficient or productive?!  I...I don't know how to process this information!
