TF Reverse Bang 2014 Collection Post
First we want to thank everyone that joined us, signal boosted, cheered on the artists and writers, betas… Everyone! For a first round, this is a resounding success. Everyone did such awesome work! Thank you, just a million times over, thank you all!
I think we learned a few things for next year’s Reverse Bang, so here’s to hoping TF Reverse Bang 2015 will be even more epic, but until then, we hope you all have a wonderful time enjoying the art and reading the stories they inspired.
Your ecstatic MODs,
Ultharkitty & LadyDragon76
grimcognito - Frenzy, Rumble, Hand Holding Trouble
Meetings by Silvia_Blake
Characters/pairings: Rumble, Frenzy, Soundwave, Megatron, Lazerbeak, Ravage
Content advice/warnings: Implied Sexual Violence, Abuse, Slavery, Discussions of Death
Summary: Meeting someone for the first time can be fun, but meeting someone again after being apart for so long? That’s what the spark lives for.
Notes: Relies heavily on Five Faces of Darkness Part 4 explanation of Megatron’s creation.
Dirty Tapes by Eaten_by_Bears
Characters/pairings: Rumble/Frenzy, Soundwave/Frenzy
Content advice/warnings: sticky, spanking, corner time, ageplay, humiliation, exhibitionism, bondage, enema, dubcon, facials, incest, size kink
Summary: Decepticon teams are run autocratically, even cruelly, and order is enforced according to the commander’s will instead of by any system of law or rule. However, this does make it easier to meet the needs of certain needy, submissive mechs who rely on their team to give them the discipline they crave. Such as Frenzy.
Notes: Dubcon because no one asks Frenzy’s permission, but it’s an open secret that he loves the rough treatment. Incest as far as Rumble and Frenzy are brothers.
Heavybomb - Galaxies
A Voice in the Dark by White Aster
Content advice/warnings: Sticky and tactile/wireplay sex. Relationship building, phone(comm)-sex, mutual masturbation, dirty talk, voyeurism/exhibitionism, sizekink, happy ending AU.
Summary: A long-range shuttle, a communications mech, and a very long-distance relationship.
Notes: This is based on what I could remember and google of the G1/IDW canonverse, but no doubt some things that are slightly off. The end is centered around a peaceful AU that isn’t related to anything in canon (in-joke notwithstanding). Or, I suppose you could assume it’s a-bit-future ongoing comicverse. Whatever floats your boat!
This goes along with the idea of Cosmos as actually-big-and-shuttle-sized, rather like he is in the ongoing IDW comics, rather than cute little minibot Cosmos from the cartoon. Because we liked it that way.
Many thanks to Heavybomb, Moogle, and Blue for beta-ing! :D
A Voice in the Stars by Eerian_Sadow
Characters/pairings: Blaster, Cosmos, Optimus Prime, Jazz, Eject, Rewind, Onslaught, Blast Off
Content advice/warnings: Mentions of mild violence, implied severe damage, friendship, lots of blended canon elements
Summary: After arriving on Earth, Blaster and Rewind discover an unusual communication signal.
Notes: I played fast and loose with the canon timeline, the way characters arrived on Earth (not that there’s a lot of hard canon behind how the season 2 characters got to Earth, but still), when certain characters appeared in the series and a lot of other elements. I tried something different initially, but it didn’t work for the story I wanted to tell. Thanks to heavybomb for making such a fun piece to work with, and to the reverse bang mod team for hosting this event!
shibara - Art by Shibara
Compliance by Dellessa
Content advice/warnings: Dubious consent. Use of Drugs.
Summary: Prowl has a bad day and ends up being pampered, much to his chagrin.
Notes: Also inspired by this prompt.
Something for the Headache by NHGVision
Content advice/warnings: Drug use, dubious consent, mind alteration, violence.
Summary: Prowl gets trapped on a backwater planet with the Constructicons, and they only way off is if the Constructicons rebuild the ship. They’ll do it, but for a price Prowl is unsure of.
Notes: I, uh, I know I said I wasn’t going to make it too long, but, um…it just sort of…got away from me…Oops?
pl2363 - Untitled
X Amount of Words by DracoQueen22
Characters/pairings: Sunstreaker, Bob, Rodimus, Rung, Ratchet, Lost Light crew
Content advice/warnings: Spoilers for MTMTE and Dark Cybertron, Angst and Fluff and Bob Cuteness, Unreliable Narrator, Canon-typical violence and canonical character death
Summary: The art of moving on is a journey earned in fits and bursts.
Notes: I tried to be as canon-accurate as possible, relying on tf-wiki for the volumes I don’t personally own (like all of Sunstreaker’s backstory). I may have missed some details. Special thanks to ladydragon76 for giving this the old look-see for me. :D
Fragment by Wicked3659
Characters/pairings: Sunstreaker, Rodimus
Content advice/warnings: Sticky interfacing, angst
Summary: Sunstreaker takes a long hard look at his life to date and comes to realise he can still make a difference.
Notes: Loved the challenge!
masqueadrift - The Aftermath of the Battle for Elysium
Elysium by LadyDragon76
Characters/pairings: Drift/Red Alert
Content advice/warnings: Violence, AU, Mild Robot Gore
Summary: It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Notes: I’ve used gender-neutral pronouns in this fic. The story itself is a bit rambling and goofy, but was fun to do. ^_^
A Difficult Task by Fuzipenguin
Continuity: G1/IDW, wildly AU
Characters/pairings: Drift, Red Alert, Ratchet, Bluestreak
Content advice/warnings: I have very little knowledge of IDW events and characterizations so Drift could very well be OOC; having never written Red Alert, same warning applies. Headcanon also took several ideas and ran with them, including the fact that Prowl is Red Alert’s older brother
Summary: “Learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult tasks.” – Isaac Watts. Will Red Alert ever be able to trust Drift?
Notes: This challenge was a lot of fun and it was an honor to write something for such a lovely piece of art!
Xenotechnophile - First Aid
When It All Goes to Hell by grimcognito

Summary: Scenes from the early life of Rewind of the House of Ambus.
Notes: None listed
Specspectacle - After Hours
Kremzeek! by LadyDragon76
Characters/pairings: Crew of the Lost Light
Content advice/warnings: Crack, Canon? What canon?
Summary: Everyone, quick! Blame Brainstorm!
Notes: Special Thanks to Masqueadrift for rambling ideas at me until we landed on this one. I might have had a little too much fun writing this. ^_^
