Welcome to the newly installed master page to my fanfic, TRANSFORMERS Alternative.
I am going to begin by telling you about the (current) storyline.
In addition to merging comic stories with those used in the American cartoon, This story focuses on the Cybertronian theatre of "the Great War." Of those Transformers who didn't leave to "colonize", the war has more or less turned "cold". the starting point in this story is in 1984, The year the Transformers on Earth awoke. Perceptor is not leader, but a ranking officer and the head Autobot scientist. The Autobots are lead by the biumvirate (set of 2 leaders) of Autobahn Lee, Brigadier General of the Autobot forces and Cumulonimbus (Cumulus for short), Administrative Director. Events will take place to change leadership to comic/cartoon facts, but it is so far in the future, that I haven't written/thought of it.
There are several new characters, many of which I cannot elaborate on as there are many dishonest people on the Web. Five of them answer the question of why there are 2 sets of Predacons. One will have the least likely of binary-bonded partners (in the near-to-distant future). One of my top ideas is to give the unnamed Decepticon Planes some limited prominance (i.e. Cobra Vipers, C.G.s, Troopers in G. I. Joe). Thunderwing will be downgraded to a Seeker (Decepticon Plane). Occasionally, we will look in on our Earth-bound favorites, with Optimus and Megatron as the undisputed C.O.'s of the Earth campaigns. Click here to see the Episode Guide.
But first, click here to get a good picture of what the characters are supposed to look like.
