Ancient history: See TRANSFORMERS #1-80. Published by Marvel Comics. Recent history: Buster Witwicky grew up and became an honorary transformer. He managed to settle things with his old High School Sweetie, Jesse (not Carly from the cartoon), and Married. They had a son named Daniel, born in 1995. Jesse is killed by the Decepticons, (another story) leaving Buster as a single father. 2013 Daniel turns eighteen. Buster turns forty-eight. Daniel, after spending some time on Cybertron, returns to earth, where he is attacked by a ragtag group of Decepticons. Daniel loses an arm in this conflict. For more details, send a note by e-mail for a copy of MELTDOWN 1-3 and BLOODLINES. This story follows in direct continuity with Bloodlines. For the first part, simply drop me a line in E-mail. This story take place about ten minutes after BLOODLINES did. If anyone here is confused about what the heck is going on, they should know that these stories of mine read like the comic book (I was a big fan of it). That is to say that you can read them as isolated stories, but in sequence they form a bigger tale. If anyone asks, I will e-mail them MELTDOWN, BLOODLINES, or both if they would like them. Anyone who hates to have a story spoiled, should get these stories before reading another line of this. Those who simply want to know what's going on, keep on reading... This story takes place on Earth in the year 2013. Daniel is now eighteen years old (I am assuming he was ten in the movie) and the autobots are largely in control of earth and Cybertron. I admit that I have something of a custom made universe, (where my favorite characters didn't die, and Optimus and Meggy still lead) but hell, it's the universe that everyone wanted anyways, right? What has gone before: (Narrated by Blurr) Daniel arrived from cybertron in a shuttle that was attacked by a motley group of decepticons who were sent here to set up a base on earth but ended up in a huge battle that they almost won but got blasted by autobot reinforcements at the last minute and were taken captive but not before Daniel lost and arm to laserbeak and had to have it replaced with a cybernetic one which he is still coming to terms with as we start this story! <WHEW!> Legal stuff: Now I sit me down to type I pray Hasbro won't get uptight. They own Transformers, One and All I just wrote a story, Y'all. :) Purist Notes If anyone has a hard time with the characterizations, then it is probably because I am writing most of them from memory. (Wheeljack is curious and always tinkering, Prowl is logical and patient, Ratchet likes to party) If anything seems off kilter, send me E-Mail and, if available, the character's tech specs. I don't have most of them.
