The Cast of "Children of Cybertron" from Transformers: Generation 2Zobovor's Transformers Fan Fiction


"Marvelous!  I have written a brilliant scenario of Autobot destruction!"

Below are links to the stories and character profiles I've written that are based within the Transformers mythos.  Pretty much everything I've written up to this point is meant to fit within the existing framework of the various cartoon series in some fashion, and most of my stories all take place in the same universe as each other.  Fanfic titles below without active links represent placeholders for story concepts that I may or may not get around to actually writing one day.  I've broken the stories down according to when they fit into the chronology, if applicable.  (The date following the synopsis is when the story was written.)
